As you may have noticed, it’s been a while since I have written a post. Why?
PATH Nutrition & Wellness is and has been evolving and I am currently working on the website to catch up with how we have changed and how this may benefit you.
We have been open and operating continuously over the years! So we are still here! Just upgrading!!!
We will be announcing new partnerships and new programs in the upcoming days, weeks and months!
Keep yourself posted by coming back to visit soon!
In fitness & in health,
So you have been doing great on your fat-loss plan and losing at a good rate and loving how you have helped enhance your life and your body!
Then it happens –
You have a moment of weakness and you throw all your strength out the window and overindulge.
It happens – and it happens to almost everyone.
What can you do to minimize the effects of the deviation?
- Move forward, do not feel associate negative emotions with it. It has happened and just get back on plan!
- Drink a LOT of water. Try to drink as much as possible over 24-72 hours. This will push the excess fluids out of the body.
- Include some vegetable juicing if possible or eat a lot of fresh green vegetables.
- Generally, within 72 hours – your body will go back to where it was (weight and fat percentage wise), so patience is key!
- Get in some intense exercise the next day – weight lifting, intervals, even a brisk walk. Get that blood pumping and fluids moving!
- Take some time to analyze why this happened and if you are working with a fat-loss coach, discuss this with him or her. A good coach will help you out even more.
The bright side? If you have been on a fat-loss program for a while – the occasional over eating (OCCASIONAL is the key word) can (depending on the person) help boost your metabolism, bring hormone levels back in balance and help maintain muscle mass. It can help break a fat-loss plateau.
On a side note : if you are sick, and you eat more than normal due to listening to the signals of your body – that’s good. Your body will prioritize healing itself over everything else. Meaining, you are likely not going to gain fat.
Have a great day!
In an earlier post about whey protein powder, I mentioned that one thing I love about a GOOD QUALITY (<—- important!) whey protein supplement is that I am able to enjoy sweet treats – baked goods included – without the repercussions of sugar and other unhealthy additives.
I found a recipe and made some tweaks and it is OH SO GOOD – for just 250 calories. High in protein – refined sugar and additive free!
Here’s what you do!
1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F)
2. Take 30 grams of gluten free or regular oats and blend until fine.
3. Combine the following in a bowl:
- 30 grams of blended oats
- 4 large egg whites
- 50 grams of blueberries
- 15 grams of vanilla flavored whey protein powder (I used Foodin’s natural vanilla whey)
- 1 t of all natural vanilla extract
- Cinnamon and stevia to your liking
4. Place mixture in lightly coated loaf pan (a light brushing of coconut oil works great) and bake for 30-40 min.
5. Remove and eat!
You can slice it up and serve it with coffee for guests or eat the entire thing yourself! Nom nom!
Macros: 250 calories, 30 g protein, 23 g carbs, and 3 g fat
Clean as a whistle!
It’s also a PERFECT treat when you are having cravings for something that’s not so good for you.
Blessings and much love!
