Which Meal Is Better? --A Nutrition Quiz

I looooove breakfast. When I was a kid my mom use
to cook breakfast food for dinner. About once a
month. It was my absolute favorite! To this day I
can eat breakfast food anytime and anyplace.
From eggs and bacon to fruit and yogurt - it's all

And ask any of my friends - my absolute favorite
is donuts! (Shhhhh. Don't tell;-)

So this morning I had a choice. A choice between 2
different meals. Let's see if you know which one
is best.

Option #1

2 eggs scrambled, 2 slices of bacon, and a toasted
whole wheat english muffin with a little jam on
the side.


Option #2

A bowl of whole grain bran flakes with skim milk and
a glass of OJ.

Ok, which is better? Is it option #1? Or option #2?
If you guessed option #2, you're wrong. The best
choice is option #1.

Here's why...

One of the secrets to our Fitness Together
nutrition program is eating smaller meals
throughout the day. But I'm sure you already knew
that. Experts have been preaching that for years.

But there's another secret that NO one talks
about. That's the secret of BALANCE. Each meal
should have a balance of carbs, protein, fat, and
fiber. If you don't have a balance you'll be
setting yourself up for failure.

Option #2 is predominantly carbs. This meal will
spike your blood sugar causing an insulin
imbalance. This is the beginning of a viscious
cycle that results with an inability to lose weight.

Not good.

Option #1 is balanced with carbs, protein, fat and
fiber. Sure you could make a few changes for the
better like switching to turkey bacon and cutting
out an egg yolk. But all in all, it's the better choice.

How Well Do You Know Yourself? (A New Year's Resolution Tip)

How well do you know yourself?

Over the weekend I was talking to a couple of friends
I haven't seen in awhile and New Year's resolutions
came up.

One of them, Elise, a woman with both southern
hospitatliy and a southern draw, laughed and
said, "I made those for all of two years. Then I
stopped because I know myself too well. I never
do them."

That perked my ears because as a fitness professional
I hear of so many people making New Year's resolutions.
What's worse is I hear of so many people dropping those
resolutions around mid January.

Health, fitness, nutrition, weight loss, and so many other
related topics are at the top of New Year's resolutions.
Every year people make it a point to get healthier, eat better,
lose some weight...and the list goes on.

So what's on your resolution list?

Whatever it is, do you know beyond a shadow of a doubt
that it will stick? I mean, how well do you know yourself?

If you HATE working out and HATE doing it in front of other
people, why should you even consider joining a gym to lose
weight or get in shape? Don't you know yourself better than that?

I think Plato said it best, "Know thyself".

It's profound advice. But if you decide to make a New Year's
resolution, put it to use. Because it will be the differnce
between success and failure.

In this month's Richly Rewarding Living Newsletter I give you
a helpful process to make those resolutions stick.
Look for it to arrive this week. And if you haven't subscribed,
you can do so here.

To your fitness success,
