Some of us remember fish as Brain Food. There are so many studies out there that focus on the Healthy Benefit of eating, “good fat” that we call Omega-3 fatty acids, that are found in fish that swim in cold water. To get your serving size of Omega-3’s fatty acid it is recommended by American Heart Association to eat at least 2 servings of fish per week. A serving size amount is considered the palm of your hand or a little bigger. There is always a question in everyone’s mind about eating Fish and should I eat it rather than eating all of the other meats. The benefit of eating fish regularly helps poor eyesight lower blood pressure, irregular heartbeats, and reduces the risk of a fatal heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Omega-3’s also help our body in reducing inflammation in the blood vessels, joints and any other body parts that are being inflamed since our bodies don’t make enough of Omega-3’s we have to get them from our foods. Salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines and trout are the main fishes high in Omega-3’s along with fish there are many foods that contribute to Omega-3’s. In order to get all of the benefits of the Omega-3’s from the fish you eat make sure you bake or broil your fishes. I have listed below a fish guide that I came across @ http://www.genesmart.com
> 500mg of Omega-3’s <150mg of Omega-3’s
150-500mg of Omega-3 Fish Containing little or No Omega-3’s
I know the weight I have gained 50lbs over the past 10yrs are not going to vanish over night, in 1 month or maybe even in a year. It took me 10yrs to gain 50lbs its definitely not going to take me 30-90 days to take it off. Considering that I have been working out for 10 days now (working out 3-4 days per week) I am not seeing the results I would like to see. I still have my high stomach, not so prominent but not where I would like it to be and my thighs feel like they are getting bigger instead of trimming down so, on I have decided to change my regimen. I have adopted a workout buddy, added my very own 10cissors that will cut, tone and strengthen my body and cut everything out of my nutrition regimen except for Fish…Fruits & Vegetables (except for breakfast where I will have my oatmeal, eggs, cereals, waffles , etc…just NO MEAT!!!). I will check in 10 days to see what my NEW regimen has done for me.
Yes, my workout buddy is my Girdle. A girdle will firm and accentuate my curves the same curves I want to have when I am not in my girdle, so why not exercise with my girdle. I exercise with my girdle so the weight I want to cut knows where to fall off first and my thighs know the size they should be and my core knows to stay tight!!!!
Day 1…workout with high intensity cardio for 45mins; Nutrition: Breakfast: Oatmeal with blueberries & bananas,and chopped walnuts, Lunch; Tilapia tostada w/ pico de gallo, green beans with fresh lime juice, Dinner: Shrimp Fettuccine w/green salad. Water & green tea all day.
