Healthy Snacking and Staying Fit!

Healthy Snacking and Staying Fit!

You’ve heard that snacking is good for your metabolism. It’s something that we read and hear fitness experts encourage the public to do. The question is: Do you snack right?  Or, is your snacking adding unwanted pounds and getting in the way of your fitness goals?

The fact is many of us snack on the wrong things. Recent surveys report that 65% of adults eat two snacks every day. If these were wholesome snacks then logic would dictate that 65% of adults should be lean and healthy.  Alas — if only all snacking was good for you!   The unfortunate truth is that most snacking will only add pounds and inches to your waistline.  This is because if you are snacking on all the wrong things it will lead to a very frustrating weight gain cycle.

Healthy Snacking! Which road should you take?

So to help you combat this yoyo routine, here are the two Skinny Snacking Rules that you need to snack smart, rev up your metabolism and give you the energy you need throughout the day. Following these will help you get lean fast!

Healthy Snacking Rule #1: Avoid snacks that are high in carbohydrates and simple sugars. Most simple, quick snack foods are filled with grains, refined sugars, and simple carbohydrates. These are packaged goods, crackers, chips, and usually granola bars. Quick and crunchy snacks like these will quickly add inches where you only want to lose them.

Your smart snack should be very low in carbohydrates, simple sugars, and grains.

Healthy Snacking Rule #2: Eat snacks that are high in protein and healthy fiber. This may sound difficult, but it’s really not. Once you get into the habit of eating protein and fiber for your snacks it will become second nature.

Here are some awesomely fit snack ideas: Greek yogurt and ¼ cup of almonds, 3oz of turkey jerky with an apple, a protein shake with gluten free chocolate rice cakes and table spoon of natural peanut butter. If you must have your pastries and baked goods then seek out recipes that are made with almond flour or coconut flour, which is higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates and simple sugars.

Cutting out bad snacking with those carbohydrate and sugar-filled snacks will change your body quickly. This change, along with replacing sugar-filled beverages with water, is the number one way that you can immediately begin to lose inches and get lean. To ensure that you are not over-snacking try to space your meals and snacks by 3 hours and keep snacks around 150 calories.

I tell people all the time that abs are not made in the gym they are made in the kitchen. Getting to the gym is only half the battle the more difficult part is what you eat before and after you go to the gym. Watch your snacking habits and you will see the improvement you want.

Mothers in Healthcare Careers

Sick Child with MomFall is arriving and this means new TV shows, cooler weather and the kids going back to school. It is a great time of year, but as a mom it can also require a good amount of vigilance to protect your family’s health.  Kids at school and cooler weather can result in the spread of coughs, colds and the flu.  This often puts moms on the frontlines, meaning you have to consider all sorts of factors for hygiene and at-the-ready remedies to keep everyone healthy.

What you may not be considering is that this experience is similar to healthcare careers, and your competency could be well rewarded in that field. The skills of patient care involve the personality and technical understanding you bring to your family during the flu season.  Being on the frontlines of delivering effective aid to those in need is a field that has been growing for some time and many positions are still experiencing booming demand.  Your work doesn’t have to place just in a hospital — you can work from home, at emergency clinics, in physician offices and more.  These are portable careers you can take with you where you need to go.
