Anne MonroeAnne originally started with Giddy Up back in February. She was so excited and ready to to go! All she could talk about was getting back in shape and eating healthy again.Unfortunately, about 2 weeks after starting, she took a hard fall at home and broke her ankle. She was out of training for 2 months. This really had Anne frustrated as many of us get when we are ready to get started with our exercise plan, but life hits us. She had to put her training on hold, but life didn’t stop for her. She immediately went back to work and within a few weeks she went to Palm Springs, California to visit her family in a medical boot! I am happy to say she is back at training and focusing on nutrition, losing weight and inches and doing it all in an ankle brace. Now I cannot blame anyone for being enthusiastic to see me…but she is always positive, passionate, works hard and always does extra reps even without me asking(AND IT’S NOT BECAUSE OF MY COUNTING LADIES).
Although starting an exercise plan was out of Anne’s control, for many of us it’s a choice. The things that she could control, she did!
I chose Anne for this months spotlight NOT to talk about the physical accomplishments she has made but to talk about her mental accomplishments. So many of us allow things that are very much in our control to stop us from getting healthier. Let Anne be an inspiration to you to make a choice and to keep fighting for your health!
One of the hardest parts of life is deciding to walk away or try harder…Author Unknown
Jennie AgertonJennie recently joined our Giddy Up family and I am proud to say that in 8 weeks she was down 7 lbs and has put on 3 lbs of muscle! How did she do it?? She is very religious in using her myfitnesspal diary and keeping with the goals set. She always makes scheduled work-outs and works super hard during those work outs. She is very passionate and enthusiastic about reaching her goals and doesn’t let anything stand in her way. I asked her why this time would be different than any other time she started a workout routine and she said because this time I am doing it for ME and to make it a lifestyle.
I thought this was a great article as at least 90% of you ladies have asked
me about this topic….
JUICING FOR HEALTH & WEIGHT LOSS
What to know before adding fresh juice to your diet.
Ready to give juicing a whirl? It’s an easy way to get more fruits and veggies into your diet.
Before you get started, you should know a few things about what you can expect juicing to do for you, and what’s just hype. “If you’re not big into fruits and vegetables, it’s a good way to get them in.” — Jennifer Barr, RD
The Biggest Advantage
“If you’re not big into fruits and vegetables, it’s a good way to get them in,” says nutritionist Jennifer Barr, RD, of Wilmington, DE. You should still eat fruits and vegetables, too, says Manuel Villacorta, RD, founder of Eating Free, a weight management program.
Aim to eat two whole fruits and three to four vegetables a day. Choose them in different colors, so you get a good mix of vitamins and minerals, Barr says.
When you juice, you don’t get the fiber that’s in whole fruits and vegetables. Juicing machines extract the juice and leave behind the pulp, which has fiber.
So you don’t miss out on the fiber, you can add some of the pulp back into the juice or use it in cooking.
Barr adds it to muffin batter, or to make broth for cooking soup, rice, and pasta. That’s “going the extra step to fortify your meals,” she says.
Do You Need a Juicing Machine?
Juicers can be expensive, ranging from $50 to $400. Some more expensive juicers will break down a lot of the fruit by grinding the core, rind, and seeds, Barr says.
You may not need a juicing machine to make juice. You can use a blender for most whole fruits or vegetables to keep the fiber. Add water if it becomes too thick, Villacorta says. You’ll want to remove seeds and rinds, and some skins.
Once your juice is ready, it’s best to drink it the same day you make it, for food safety. Wash your blender or juice machine thoroughly, so it’s ready for your next batch.
Watch the Calories
How many calories are in your juice? That depends on what’s in it.
“You could be taking up to four fruits, and now the calories start adding up. If you use vegetables to juice, the calories are a lot less. If they use mainly vegetables, add an apple or kiwi for flavor. Calories are a concern if it’s pure fruit juice,” Villacorta says.
You can make your juice more balanced by adding protein. Some good sources are almond milk, Greek yogurt, flaxseed, and peanut butter.
Juicing for Weight Loss and Cleansing
Juicing might seem like a simple way to lose weight, but it can backfire.
On a juice-only diet, you may not get enough fiber or protein to make you full. You might rebel.
“If you’re doing a juicing diet, you’ll be so tempted to eat something like a cake or doughnut because you’ve restricted yourself,” Barr says.
Not getting enough protein could also mean you lose muscle mass.
The bottom line: It’s too extreme, and the results aren’t likely to last.
What about juicing as a way to detox or cleanse your body? “I haven’t seen any research or science paper to support that cleansing is happening from juicing,” Villacorta says.
Your liver and kidneys take care of that — whether you’re juicing or not.
Other Health Claims
As for other health claims, it’s true that eating a plant-based diet is linked to lower risk of heart disease or cancer. But there hasn’t been a lot of research done that’s specific to juicing.
There is some research on juicing and the immune system. But any immune system benefits probably come from eating fruits and vegetables, whether it’s in juice or not, Barr says.
If You’re Taking Prescription Drugs
Check with your doctor before doing a lot of juicing, so you can avoid any potential problems.
For instance, large amounts of foods high in vitamin K, such as kale and spinach, may change how the blood thinnerwarfarin works.
