Featured Success Story: Inspiration for the New Year!

Boot Camp Success StoryI saw an ad for Wendy’s Doylestown Bootcamp one month before my 50th birthday and made the decision to get healthier and get my body back. I was hooked!

It’s three years later and I’m still up before 5:30 AM (3-4 times a week) joining a group of amazing women all of whom are on their own personal journeys.

WE SHOW UP. WE WORK HARD. WE EVEN HAVE FUN.

I am stronger than ever. I see muscle definition where there was none. I’m amazed at the things I can do during Bootcamp because we work in a group setting, and I impress myself at the things I can do when I’m not at Bootcamp!

71 years old, 70 pounds lost through Doylestown Adventure Boot Camp’s Nutrition Program

Earl before & after Doylestown boot campDoylestown Adventure Boot Camp not only gets you fit but provides nutrition counseling for men and women of all ages to help lose those unwanted pounds!   Earl, a resident of Bucks County, has proven results from Wendy’s nutrition counseling program.

“I’ve struggled with being overweight for years but always thought I could figure it out on my own.  At age 71 and 334 pounds, I finally asked for help.  My daughter directed me to her trainer, Wendy Yazujian who runs the Doylestown Adventure Boot Camp in Doylestown.  Wendy worked with me, helping me better understand what types of foods I should be eating and how much.  I was amazed!  I had thought I was eating healthy, but I was making a lot of mistakes.  Now, 6 months later, I am 70 pounds lighter and my health has improved dramatically.  I was pre-diabetic, hypertensive and had high cholesterol.  I am no longer pre-diabetic, my blood pressure and cholesterol are now stable.  I feel fantastic!  I am grateful for Wendy’s knowledge of nutrition, commitment to my health and compassion for my situation.”

Doylestown Boot Camp Inquires About Carbohydrate Intake

healthy carbohydrate intakeDoylestown Boot Camp asks what carbohydrates are healthiest to eat. Let’s start with what carbohydrates are and how they are essential to a healthy body. There are simple and complex carbohydrates.

The Fact on Fats

fat intakeWhat is fat and how much should we consume in a day? There are two types of fat, saturated and unsaturated. A chemical process called hydrogenation alters the texture of foods by making liquid vegetable oils more solid (as in margarine and shortening).

Fats that are hydrogenated are called trans fats which consumed in great quantities increase blood cholesterol and increase the risk of heart disease. Coconut oil, butter, animal fat, cheese, bacon, ice cream, margarine, fried foods (hydrogenated shortening), snack foods (chips, crackers and microwave popcorn) are examples of saturated trans fats and should be eliminated from the diet.

A post idea hit me this morning, so I thought I would get this down on some proverbial paper. Motivation… and how to keep it going.

The start to every new year or month (heck it even seems like beginning of every new week) I tell myself, “I am going to work out 5 times a week, eat clean for every meal, lose 10 pounds in 10 minutes, sleep 8 hours every night, drink 3 liters of water every day, be happy all the time, and live life as if I am a ray of sunshine brightening everything around me.” What a load of crap.

Thinking of how to stay motivated brings me back to a business lesson that has resurfaced in my life time and time again. I must set SMART goals for myself, and I have to write it down! What’s a SMART goal you ask? Good question… let me tell you.

Healthy Snacks

thHealthy Snacks are important in your daily diet.   Don’t allow yourself to go 5-6 hours without eating.   Eating small meals every 3-4 hours will increase your metabolism.

This is optimal.  A stable metabolism will allow your body to burn fat at rest throughout the day and even when you  are sleeping!

Fact!  When you eat after 5,6  hours your blood sugar spikes, causing excess insulin in your blood.  When there is excess insulin in your blood your body stores fat more easily.   Drink more water.  If you’re not drinking half your body weight in oz.  you aren’t drinking enough.  I always say…. You should never be starving or ravenously thirsty.
