Many of my clients work hard with their exercise – high intensity fat burning cardio intervals and plenty of resistance training to build lean muscle. But, one of the common barriers to achieving the lean, sculpted look is the layer of fat that is draped over those beautiful toned muscles.
Nutrition is the key to success. I follow the 80/20 rule. 20 percent of what you look like is attributed to your exercise habit and 80 percent is from nutrition. And, frankly, when a client gets down to the last 8-12lbs that rule becomes truth.
I’m having many of my clients start the New Year off one of my favorite herbal cleanses (not a fast). Eliminating the sugar and caffeine cravings, protecting and feeding lean muscle is the goal for the first 10 days. Add plenty of fiber, vegetables, lean fish and poultry.
Best of Energy!
