Haribo Gummy Bears as a post-workout fuel source!

So there's this guy in the UK named Russ Howe.   He is one of my favorite trainers in the world because he has a no BS attitude toward training.  He got me to turn to Haribo Gummy Bears for my post-workout recovery regimen. Here's why: these little yummy treats contain DEXTROSE which is a form of sugar. Read this article about dextrose and why it is better than any other type of sugar or carb when refueling after a workout: http://www.stack.com/2012/12/12/post-workout-dextrose/ .  So a couple of days ago, I cleaned out the convenience store and bought all of my clients some Haribo Gummy Bears! 

So read the article, and then after your workout, a handful of gummy bears and some protein, within 30 minutes! 

Anyone confused about dieting?

Hello to all of you powerful people out there!


*I wanted to talk to you all today about DIET. If you are trying to lose weight and tone up, DIET is 95% of your battle. You can come to class, go spend hours at the gym, and see ZERO results. So since most of you are new clients, I wanted to let you know about the 24 Day Challenge from AdvoCare. It’s a bundle of 6 products including energy drinks called Spark, an herbal cleanse, an omega fatty acid supplement, meal replacement shakes, vitamin packs, and a notebook with your whole diet spelled out for you. Now normally I don’t recommend diets that promise quick results, but I have had several clients do this and have seen really good results, between 10-20 lbs. HOWEVER, if you don’t follow it to the letter, you won’t see results. It is not an easy diet. But then again, dieting is never easy.  That’s why I encourage all of my clients to make a LIFESTYLE change, not just go on diets over and over again.


Now, I don’t get rich off AdvoCare. Sales is not my thing. But if you want a place to start with your diet, this is a great jumping off point. My husband has even taken the 24 Day Challenge and lost around 11 lbs.
