A new nutrition program came out this year called 2B Mindset. Before I lose you, it's not another DIET. This has been a game changer for me on how I view food and choose food to eat and I highly recommend it for EVERYONE whether you're trying to lose weight, maintain weight, or just live healthier. It is also changing how I will be helping my patients. At work my patients typically have long lists of illness and diseases that for the most part are preventable. Since good nutrition is foundational to good healing, we are often left working uphill in trying to help the patient recover from injury because they have a poor nutritional history. I'll be incorporating the 2B Mindset in my patient education programs starting next year and am excited to see how my patients benefit from this.

We are heading into our last week together! I hope you've enjoyed learning new things and I hope you will incorporate some of these ideas with success! This week is going to be all about some of my favorite wellness products. I've had some great results with these products so I wanted to share them with you.
Have you tried adding plyometrics into your workouts? I've started adding them in over the last year (more so in the last month) and although they are tough, there are definite benefits!
Know you need to workout but lacking motivation to actually do it? Here are some ideas to try if you need help!
Do you have a fear of carbohydrates? Carbs have gotten a bad wrap lately, especially with the keto craze. But honestly, most of us just make poor carb choices (they aren't all bad). Let's take a look at FIBER today! Considered a carb, fiber is not digestible by the body, so it will just pass through our GI tract without breaking down. Turns out, even though it is just a passenger through our body, fiber does great things for us!
Today's post is geared more toward women (sorry, fellas!). For some reason, it seems a lot of women have bought into the myth that if they lift heavy weights they'll get bulky and look manly. We've all seen the women who are body builders or do bikini fitness competitions who have bulked up a lot, and it may turn you away from lifting weights if you don't want to look like that. First, let me start by saying those women are almost always taking some sort of supplement (or even hormone) in order to look that way. It isn't just strictly lifting weights that developed those bodies. On it's own, the female body does not bulk up with muscle simply because we do not have the hormones to support that.
Today, let's discuss HIIT exercises. High Intensity Interval Training encompasses workouts that involve short periods of intense exercising followed by short recovery periods that are low intensity. I love the end result of HIIT exercising, but it can be pretty uncomfortable during the actual high intensity part.
