    11 Myths You Need to Stop Believing about Weight Loss Spokane

    Myth #1: Weight Loss is the Same for Everyone
    Weight loss is more than just calories in minus calories out and the idea there’s one quick fix for lasting weight loss that works for everyone is misguided. Individuals differ greatly in their bodies, lifestyles, emotions and life experiences (and that’s a good thing). However, this means what might have worked for your friend or loved one won’t necessarily work for you and hopping on the fad diet bandwagon often backfires. Instead, you should focus on adding healthy habits you’ll be able to maintain long-term. Myth #2: Carbs are the Enemy
    Despite popular belief, carbohydrates do not inherently cause weight ....

    Are you eating enough for your weight loss goals? Here's 5 signs you aren't...

    If you’re trying to lose weight, it seems to make sense to cut as many calories from your diet as possible. Unfortunately, it’s possible to eat too little, which not only makes it harder for you to achieve a healthy weight, but it can also cause other health problems. In other words, eating below your needs can backfire big time. Everyone has a set amount of calories, or energy, they need to simply be alive. Consistently eating less than this can cause your metabolism to slow down and your body to begin preserving what it can to survive. Hunger and feeling full aren’t the only indicators of whether you’re fueling your body appropriately. Indeed, short and long-term ....

    Weight Loss Principles that Cover Everything

    For anyone who wants to lose weight, there are two simple rules they need to follow: Rule #1: You must be in a calorie deficit.

Rule #2 You must sustain a calorie deficit for an extended period of time.
    Being unable to stick to a calorie deficit is where most people struggle. A typical approach that a lot of people use is to simply reduce their food ....

  • The Problem with a Cheat Day

    The Problem with a Cheat Day

    Many registered dietitian's dislike the idea of cheat days. Not because of the thought of their clients shoving double cheeseburgers and donuts into their face for 24 hours, but because it puts foods in to "good" and "bad" columns.Here’s why associating morality with our food choices can trigger unhealthy eating behaviors and how to ditch the cheat day and focus on more helpful, positive eating strategies. THE PROBLEM WITH BLACK-AND-WHITE THINKING
    Categorizing foods as good or bad, healthy or unhealthy, sets us up for moral highs and lows that should never be associated with eating. Whenever a client confesses to being “bad” or “cheating” on their diet, ....

    Choosing The Right Personal Training Studio Or Trainer For You

    Many times we get people coming in to the studio to check us out. They want to see what services we offer, how we do it, the general look and feel of the studio and, of course, price.

    When to Stop Eating before Bed

    With endless new Netflix documentaries and late-night food delivery at our fingertips, getting a good night’s sleep takes effort. As anyone who’s found themselves standing in front of the fridge (or polishing off a bag of popcorn) at 10 o’clock knows, going to bed stuffed is a major sleep saboteur. Eating too close to bedtime certainly disrupts sleep. In fact, one study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine has linked eating at night with poorer sleep quality, especially in women. To score more sound shut-eye, you’ll want to reconsider that late-night snack — and even how long before bed you eat dinner. HOW EATING TOO CLOSE TO BEDTIME ....
