Grill Your Way Lean

Grilling on the BBQ is the most popular pastime of summer.

While outdoor cooking is a great opportunity to relax and visit with friends and family, did you know that the average barbecue meal exceeds 1500 calories? That’s almost an entire day’s worth of calories in one meal.

That type of eating will do some serious damage to your waist over the course of the summer. The good news is that barbecue season doesn’t have to be fattening. In fact, with a few small changes to your barbecue menu, you can turn summer into the perfect opportunity for fat loss.

So before you slather on the sunscreen and fire up your grill, read the following tips to grill your way lean this summer.

On the Grill: Believe it or not, grilling is actually a very healthy way to cook meat. Of course the type of meat that you choose will make all of the difference. Burgers and hot dogs are traditional barbecue meats, but they aren’t the healthiest. Try the following:

  • Choose lean cuts of beef, pork or poultry
  • Marinade with low fat dressing
  • Make hamburgers with extra-lean ground beef
  • Take the skin off chicken before grilling
  • Replace beef burgers with ground turkey burgers
  • Grill up salmon or cod
  • Forego the meat and grill veggie burgers

Side Dishes: This is where most people run into trouble. Barbecue side dishes are typically filled with loads of fat. Creamy coleslaw and potato salads can hold as much as 15 grams of bad fats per serving. Try the following instead:

  • Make veggie kababs and grill them
  • Grill bok choy (see recipe below)
  • Replace the mayo in your salads with low-fat mayo if neccessary or forgo it all together.
  • Serve fresh salad with light vinaigrette
  • Grill up corn on the cob
  • Put out a veggie tray

Drinks:Most people don’t realize that beverages play a big role in summer weight gain. Margaritas, beer, soda pop and punch all contain lots of empty calories. Try the following:

  • Drink water, it is always your healthiest option
  • Stick with light beer
  • If you have to have a fizzy drink stick with diet
  • Brew unsweetened ice tea and serve with lemon

Dessert: Yes, there are ways to satisfy your sweet tooth while getting lean. Think outside of the box instead of turning to the typical fattening options like ice cream,  cake or cookies. Try the following:

  • Grill mango, banana and pineapple on kababs
  • Stick with sorbet instead of ice cream
  • Replace peach pie with grilled peach halves
  • Choose light ice cream over regular

Remember, it’s ok to splurge every once in a while. Enjoy yourself. Just keep in mind that by taking a few of the above suggestions you can enjoy great food while getting back into great shape.

Quick Fix Mistakes

Todays blog post below comes from a topic that is in much debate just now in the health and fitness industry – “The Quick Fix”

More and more we at Fight Camp get sellers of certain products trying to persuade us to become part of their selling teams or “affiliates” to promote the latest product that will revolutionise our clients results….. however if they had done their research a little better they would know how educating our clients about “Real Nutrition” is one of our biggest beliefs.

We are always skeptical, and never take anything on face value and rightly so should you be.

Fight Camp’s very own trainer Patrick O’brien will delve into one such quick fix a little later on and I’m sure this will be a bit of a controversial topic, as there may even be some of you reading this who have used some of these quick fixes in the past, not to worry but we feel it would be worthwhile to you our readers of our emails and this blog to hear our stance on the quick fix or others like it.

The quick fix we write of is the ever growing replacement shake culture that is becoming more prominent these days, be it any of the leaders – herbalife, juiceplus or whatever comes up next.

One of the biggest problems that comes out of the use of these products and others such like it is that it will rarely (if at all) tackle the main problems that people have with food which is more of a psychological level problem and what I call the people/food relationship.

Let’s be honest if you are not happy with the way you look and feel right now, then the person/food relationship that you have is probably out of sync with one for optimum health.

Taking a shake 2-3 times a day instead of good wholesome nutritious meals might seem like a good option (quick fix) particularly for those a couple of weeks away from holidays – but will it have any real lasting effect on the person/food relationship??

In our experience 100% no.

Let’s be clear though, this isn’t just an opinion that we’ve pulled out of thin air because we are biased in anyway – but an opinion that has been moulded by a collective experience of over 40 years in the health and fitness business and helping thousands of  people, men and women just like you improve their health, fitness – and their relationships they have with food.

For anyone serious about really changing their health and  their fitness for the better – nutrition is paramount but “real nutrition”.

However “real nutrition” is about as confusing as when I try to build Ikea furniture for a lot of people.  With so many people saying so many things, or touting the latest product thats going to bring you a million benefits (note: sense of sarcasm d;-).

Even the NHS’s standpoint on nutrition is coming under more and more scrutiny for recommending outdated and incorrect information for health purposes.

Therefore as fitness professional we feel education is key to changing the food/person relationship  - teaching people why they need certain foods in their diet, what they can do for their health and how that “real nutrition” can play a huge role in not only their fitness; their energy levels, how they recover, how they can help eradicate ailments and also how they can achieve long lasting fat loss that is continually maintainable (not just for a summer holiday) .

This methodology reminds me of the old story of give a man a fish he’ll eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for the rest of his life.  (not sure who said it but a smart dude/lady nonetheless)

It’s one of the reasons we pride ourselves on the educational training we have undergone and are still taking part in (everydays’ a schoolday for the Fight Camp Team) to deliver the very best quality advice for our clients to use in their own lives and help with their food relationship – real food, real people and real results.

Over to Paddy d;-)

The Great Herbalife Swindle 

It seems everywhere you look these days you see or hear someone advocating Herbalife. Now if you were to listen to a Herbalife distributer they would have you believe that Herbalife is the missing link, the piece de resistance, the key to a healthy lifestyle.

So what is herblife?

Herbalife is a business for sales driven people as opposed to health driven people. Even their mission statement refers to their business opportunities first and the nutrition products second.
 
“Our mission is to change peoples lives by providing the best business opportunity in direct selling and the best nutrition and weight management products in the world”. 

Distributors can be anyone with an ounce of interest in the area but don’t have to specifically have any working knowledge about health and nutrition. A lot of personal trainers have jumped on the band wagon touting the benefits of Herbalife in the quest for a sale. Let me assure you their ultimate concern is not your health but simply meeting their sales target by seeing how much product they can off load on you. They have people brainwashed into thinking that the way to achieve that dream body is to have a meal replacement shake instead of eating whole food.

Herbalife are not by any means alone. Slim-Fast among others offer a whole range of products that are meant to help with weight loss. In 2008 the American Dietetic Association published research showing that Slim-Fast and certain other meal replacement drinks do not have favourable glycemic profiles for diabetics. Although this is not good for diabetics, the news is not good for non – diabetics either as when glucose levels are out of balance, the body stores fat tissue more readily, potentially thwarting the efforts of dieters.

There is no shortcut or quick fixes to long-term  weight loss and certainly not to optimal health. Instead rather lifestyle changes need to be made.

They have people brainwashed into thinking that the way to achieve that dream body is to have a meal replacement shake instead of eating whole food. I feel Herbalife are promoting poor eating habits and a system that uses a large drop in calories to lose weight. Not to mention the multi-level marketing / pyramid / get rich quick scheme model of selling.

But Ronadlo uses it… so… it must be good.

Christiano Ronaldo is often touted by Herbalife drones as proof that the products are good. Em … It’s called an endorsement fee…. Celebrity endorsements are rife in the diet business. It is often used to suggest the legitimacy of a product. Just because a celebrity is endorsing a product doesn’t make it any better. Look at the supplement for yourself and look for the quality of ingredients.

So what’s in a Herbalife protein drink?

Having looked at the Herbalife main range one of The first ingredients in this product is soy protein isolate. According to the Soy-foods Association of America “Soy Protein isolate is a dry food ingredient that has been isolated from the other components of the soybean, making it 90 to 95 percent protein”. This is a dangerous ingredient as soy is higher in phytoestrogens than just about any other food. Phytoestrogens are plant based estrogens that mimic estrogen in our bodies which can lead to breast cancer, infertility, endometriosis and even erectile dysfunction ( I bet they never told Ronaldo this). Phytoestrogen acts in the body much like a hormone, so it’s no surprise that it interacts with the delicate balance of the thyroid’s hormonal system [1,2,3]. 

As for the other ingredients of which there are many; there appears to be numerous vitamins and minerals which does increase the products potential to aid the body’s internal  processes, however these could otherwise be obtained more naturally from “real food” of which the body will absorb more efficiently rather than man made vitamins/minerals and help aid the the food/person relationship.

Additional ingredients I don’t recognise. I do know that Mono and Diglycerides are food additives used by manufactures to extend a products shelf life. Made in part of fatty acids they are similar to triglycerides and may contain trans fats which are basically the fats that clog your arteries. [4] Sucralose is classed as an artificial sweetener and they aren’t worth the risk. Numerous people around the globe have reported these sweeteners to cause adverse health effects like weight gain, blood sugar elevation to allergic reactions. [5]. In fairness Sucralose is used by lots of manufacturers for flavouring. 

But this is meant to be a healthy alternative to whole food? 

I’m off the frame of mind that if something is heavily processed then its probably not good for you. I’m not turning this into a battle over ‘real food’ verses ‘fake’ food. Food and shakes are different things with different purpose. You eat all your meals (including post workout meals) for a baseline nutrition and fuel, you take your workout shake to specifically fuel your workout effort with quickly usable nutrition. Obliviously one does not replace the other. I understand that people are generally busier than ever and having portable nutrition especially if you are an athlete is important but whole foods should make up the majority of any long term nutrition plan. 

If you are going to take supplements then do your homework. Don’t just take any old idiots advice especially one who has just climbed aboard the Herbalife gravy train spouting the benefits of a product that they really don’t know much about, find out as much information on any product that you are going to consume and as John said earlier, think about why you are taking a product in the first place, if its for a quick fix ask yourself why do I need a quick fix? what was it that brought me to the stage I am in life that I am unhappy with and lets try and mend the food/person relationship.

Conclusion

Remember guys just because someone has a sticker on there car it doesn’t make them legitimate. Think about how our ancestors lived, how are bodies are designed to function and how we survive. Nature simply is a lot smarter and wiser than us. Fruits and vegetables contain healthy phytochemicals that operate metabolically in unknown combinations. So why take the risk and deny your body nutritious food that it enjoys by consuming shakes that won’t guarantee health and cause potential harm.

You may have heard that we should increase our protein intake, especially when exercising quite intensly.

It really is that simple, so follow the instructions below and not only will you get a high quality protein packed meal.  But if you tuppaware the other 3 portions you’ll have prepared 3 more meals for the week.

Meaning you wont be worried about going to the shops at lunch, and can stick to your nutrition plan.

 

Right:

 

Get yourself to the butchers, get your chefs hat on, fire up the BBQ  and try this little recipe below for a protein packed post-workout meal.

 

This recipe will give your taste buds an early summer holiday.  Add a side of steamed veggies and brown rice for a fantastic post- Fight Camp meal. Yield: 4 servings

Increased Fat Loss

Fight Camp SweatIts this time of year that just makes training more in the forefront of our minds.

With SUMMER just round the corner most of you will probably have booked holidays or about to so its a great time to up your game and not let old bad habits slip back into our daily lives.

One simple methodology for greater fat loss can be implemented into our lifestyles RIGHT THIS SECOND!!  is increased hydration.

I’m talking about water. Pure, simple water. 

Before you scoff at this idea, check if you’re dehydrated. Sadly as much as 75% of adults suffer from mild, chronic dehydration, a condition that dramatically works against your weight 1oss efforts. 

Here is why water consumption must be at the top of your list in your quest for a fit, healthy and athletic body… 

Water does all that?

Though you probably don’t think about it often, water is the most essential element, next to air, to your survival. The simple combination of two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen makes up more than two thirds of your body and is involved in a host of bodily functions that we routinely take for granted.

Just to name a few:

  • Water works to regulate the thermal condition of your body
  • Water serves as a lubricant in your joints
  • Water helps flush toxins from your blood
  • Water gives your skin a clear, glowing complexion
  • Water assists with digestion, pulling all the usable nutrients out of foods
  • Water aides in disease prevention (Drinking 8 glasses a day has shown to reduce your chance of colon cancer by 45% and bladder cancer by 50%)

What about fitness and fat-1oss?

You’ve probably heard that you need to drink plenty of water in order to drop bodyfat, but did you ever wonder why? What does water have to do with decreasing your bad food choices and increasing your activity level in an effort to shed pounds of unwanted body fat? 

1. Water is a natural appetite suppressant

Fill your stomach with a glass of water before each meal and you will find that you portion controol is much easier to manage. This also works on snacking throughout the day, keep hydrated all day long and watch as your desire to snack decreases. 

2. Water increases your body’s ability to efficiently metabolize fat
This process begins with your kidneys receiving enough water to function at their peak, which in turn helps your liver reach optimal efficiency in removing toxins and waste from your blood. With your liver working at maximum capacity, fat will be metabolized at a higher rate. This means a decrease in your overall body fat. (And who doesn’t want that?) 

3. Water is the perfect substitute for high calorie beverages
Want to super-charge your fitness results this summer? Well, this is the most effective way to utilize water toward your beach body efforts.  Unfortunately most of the UK consume more than their share of calorie-packed beverages. Sugar enhanced smoothies, shakes, frozen mochas, soft drinks…you get the idea. When you trade your high calorie beverages in for a tall glass of water you will expedite your results in a major way. 

The Other Side of the Story…

Now you know that drinking sufficient amounts of water will help you reach your fitness goals faster than ever, but you should also know that failing to drink enough water comes with serious consequences…

  • Your body will shift into “preserve” mode—which means you will store more fat.
  • Bodily functions will slow—leading to an overall decrease in energy levels.
  • Headaches will become an expected nuisance—your brain is over 70% water.

To avoid dehydration check out the following 5 Hydration Tips:

Hydration Tip #1: Caffeinated beverages—such as coffee, soft drinks or energy drinks—cause your body to lose water. Stick to unsweetened coffee and teas and after you enjoy a dose of caffeine replace the lost water by drinking 2 times that amount in water. 

Hydration Tip #2: Add a slice of lemon to your water to spice things up. 

Hydration Tip #3: Always carry water with you throughout your day—keep a bottle on you, at your workplace and next to your bed. 

Hydration Tip #4:
 Exercise and hot summer days both increase your body’s water requirements—make a mental note to drink before, during and after exercise or while out on a hot day. 

Hydration Tip #5: Make it a habit to begin your day with a large glass of water then drink a glass before each meal and one between meals. 

Bonus Tip - The Key to efficient fat loss is following the three Golden Fat Loss Rules.

  • Nutrition - This doesn’t mean diet…. Far from it and in most cases improving your nutrition will mean eating more than you are used to.  Get your nutrition sorted to not only fuel your workouts, help with recovery and give you energy in abundance “Abs are Made in The KITCHEN!
  • Weight Training - Don’t worry this doesn’t mean I want you lifting to look like big ARNY, however the more we you use resistance training to build muscle – the faster your metabolism will be leading to accellerated fat loss – this can be usning your own bodyweight, freeweights and unconventional tools of which if you have ever seen any videos of the Fight Camps in action you’ll see we at Fight Camp have an abundance of d;-)
  • Cardiovascular Training *But the Right type. – Lets be honest cardio if its done for long durations are boring and the return on investment especially if fat loss is your goal, isn’t what you expect for the time you put in – Thats why the CV work that needs to be done for accellerated fat loss is much more intense but for shorter durations meaning less time spent but more bang for your buck.

The combination of these three rules is a sure fire way to get you in the best shape of your life and drastically improve your health and wellbeing.  

Still unsure of how to effectively use these 3 rules?  Why not let the Fight Camp Team help you with your training and nutrition by jumping on to our next set of camps that begin the 2ND OF JUNE.  The camps are six week blocks and we deal with every aspect of your training, nutrition and recovery.  

With an early morning camp and an evening camp there really is a time that will suit.  Email info @ fightcamp.org for more details or to reserve your spot.
