Food Prep- The Lais Method

fitblog nutrition Apr 12, 2017

How do you food prep? Most people think of piles of containers and perfectly portioned meals stacked in a fridge for a week.

Not my style, I do not like having meals sitting in my fridge all week.  I like prepping food, and having it ready for cooking my meals during the week. I still have all my veggies, protein, sauces, and fruit for the week, but all ready to make separately.

Juicing 101

fitblog nutrition Apr 12, 2017

How many of you wonder what Juicing is really about?

What is the difference between using a juicer and a blender?  What are the benefits of juicing?  Blending and juicing are similar, but there are some differences that you should know.  I explain why I prefer juicing to blending in order to get my daily nutrients.  Also, I go over different types of fiber and how it is broken down in your body.  There are different ways to get your nutrients every day, and since getting enough veggies in your diet daily is very difficult for most people, eating them does not always have to be the only way.

A Typical Day In My Life (VIDEO)

fitblog nutrition workouts Mar 08, 2017

Hi everyone,

I’ve seen a lot of these “day in the life” type of videos on youtube and I always love them because they give us a glimpse as to who people are, how they do things, and they are just fun. I wanted to make a fun video for you guys and open up a bit. This video is not intended to be informative or particularly helpful even though I do talk about a few things I do that may or may not be helpful to some. But all in all, it is for fun! I got a few comments already that it was “not helpful at all” or “that I’m just showing off and not sharing anything informative” So I wanted to clarify that it wasn’t intended to be. I just wanted to do something a little fun for once and let you all into my life a little more.

I wanted to share my typical leg day because it’s my favorite day. Mostly because, I tend to have a cheat meal on leg day since it’s when I burn the most calories and need the most fuel.

Body Composition, My Personal Weight, and Measurements

fitblog Mar 08, 2017

I’m always surprised how often I get asked my height, weight, and measurements…

Ladies,

I cannot stress enough the importance of shifting your focus away from the scale and towards your overall body composition as you work towards your goals.

In this video I finally talk about my own personal body weight, measurements, and body composition. I discuss the difference between the weight on the scale and body composition.
Don’t be a slave to the scale, it means nothing! Work hard, enjoy and trust the process, take progress pictures, and love yourself!

 

Hope this is helpful and sheds light to a lot of you stressing over your weight. Let me know if you have any questions!
