Kalamazoo Fit Body Boot Camp January 2018


As we move into 2018, many of us are setting new goals to transform our minds and bodies for the better. Working out is a key part of reaching these goals, but our efforts are likely to fall flat without a healthy diet. Unfortunately, when it comes to nutrition, there’s a bewildering mass of misinformation out there. Here are three myths you’ve almost certainly heard before: Myth 1: You Need to Detox. This is one of the most pervasive fake facts about nutrition today. In fact, it’s spawned entire industries centered around our fear of vague “toxins” floating around in our bodies. But here’s the truth: Your liver is already equipped to strip away any harmful compounds from our diets. And if it didn’t, you’d soon be in the hospital. There’s no need to starve yourself or take pills or do these “7-day detox” programs you see out there. Eating and drinking well naturally does the job for you, anyways. Myth 2: Fat Is All Bad. Most of us see fatty foods and assume they’ll instantly convert to fat when we consume them. But if you’re consuming the right kinds of fats, research shows they’re actually good for you. Look for foods with monounsaturated or essential fatty acids, like nuts, avocado, peanut butter, or olive oil. Also,

omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and fish oil is an absolute must when it comes to overall health.

Myth 3: Carbs Are Holding You Back. The latest diet crazes are the same as the old ones. Cut out carbs and you’ll suddenly feel your body burning away fat with minimal effort, they say. But in fact, our bodies need carbohydrates to function, especially when you’re on a workout program such as our Fit Body workouts. Now, for best fat-loss results, you may want to steer clear of or minimize white bread, pasta, and baked goods. Instead, seek out whole grains, veggies, and fruits

as your go-to carb sources. And make sure to have just a small

handful with your meals. No need to overdo it or “carb load.”

“My husband of 20-plus years always told me, ‘You’re beautiful and sexy.’ But I rarely felt beautiful or sexy or healthy. I struggled with my weight all my life and through four pregnancies. I started at my heaviest weight ever when I decided to get my eating, or lack of eating, under control. I was losing weight, but I knew at some point I would need more support and motivation to keep going. A client and friend told me about KFBBC. I came across a 21-day jump-start and thought if I committed to do just that, at the very least, it would be 21 days for the better. I’d just see where it would take me. I surprised myself with what I could actually do. I found myself making the time to go consistently. After the first week, I was ready to commit full time. I found a place to fit in that gave genuine encouragement, accountability, healthy advice, respect, and motivation. I never feel judged and always leave inspired to do more and to help others find what I have found — confidence and strength within myself. I can finally see myself achieving more, looking and feeling like the person I knew I had inside of me.” –Eve Holroyd
