Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening where ever you Lovelies are located at!
So I've been frequently asked on what kind of healthy snacks and foods to eat, when trying to be Fit.
Here's the truth, if you're striving for a flat tummy and healthier eating habits, you have to switch your eating plan to CLEAN DIET Plan NOT just diet.
What do I mean by CLEAN DIET?
I mean you've to CUT OFF from Junk Food .
Eating junk foods such as Fast Food meals doesn't help satisfy your hunger taste but rather boosts up the unwanted microorganisms causing blockage of the proper digestion of the food chain.
As food moves through the digestive tract to the stomach, the gastric juices that are made up of hydrochloric acid and pepsinogen, are then secreted by the parietal and chief glands in the stomach’s lining.
The job of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is to dissolve the food, kill unwanted and sometimes harmful microorganisms, and convert the pepsinogen into the stomach enzyme called pepsin.
This is important to remember as hydrochloric acid is the culprit for acid reflux.Pepsin is a proteolytic (protein-breaking) enzyme, and it’s job is to help unwind and breakdown molecules of protein into smaller subcomponents.
The majority of proteins are big molecules made up of units called amino acids. Oftentimes amino acids are referred to as the “building blocks of life.” Pepsin depends on the acidic environment of the stomach, which is why it has to do the majority of it’s work there.
In other words, the food chains your body needs in order to attain body balance and digestion is,
food that are highly enriched with nutrients such vitamins and amino acids!
For instance vegetables are highly with most of the vitamins our body needs daily and while as, proteins can be gained from Eggs, Almonds, Oats, Milk, Broccoli, Chicken Breast and cottage cheese!
All this listed above, are always in my daily meal, I never miss them at all because I know their worth in my healthy and fitness.
The best part of this is, you become full while eating this and also light weight at the same time and loaded with vitamins, essential amino acids and proteins.
My healthy snacks varies, but are gaged in a circle of healthy varieties of choice,
Since we are in a new month and the beginning of a new year, where people try to change,
hunt for motivations. I decided to motivate most of you, since I get lots of questions regarding fitness lifestyle.
How did I start & what motivated Me?
- I've always loved sports. Played football in a team while I was young (a defender),
dance in a professional dance group.
I've be In and Out of the Gym since 2014, specially when I injured my right knee, then I almost gave up!
But what mostly got Me back at being motivated again into doing workouts, was the year 2015 pictures from my birthday(November) and New year's Eve.
I realised I gained tons of weight after a horrible break up. So I decided and said to myself that my 2016 will NEVER be like my 2015 and will not allow my emotions from relationship ruin my mental and physical appearance.
Then I started looking up for some Fitness Celebs such as Mel B, looking at Mel B from Spice Girls, her body at over 40 years rocking her abs were just amazing. Seeing results of Fitness people 'Before and After pic' such like Steve Cook, got me more alert!
Then I got my feet back on the ground and stronger like never before, worked out twice daily, morning and evening, Monday - Friday, on rare occasions I worked out on Saturday.
Changed my eating habit even though I'm extreme food lover, I quit sugar intakes, I didn't eat candies a whole year, my first pizza eaten in 2016 was last November and the morning of this new year day.
My vegetable intake became 60 - 70% daily and I dread chemical preserved foods.
Then I said to myself I'd like to share my progress with my Instagram friends were I only had about 230 friend followers as of February 2016 and I followed tons of celebs.
But my Instagram account became an inspirational account not only for my friends but also for people from different parts of the world.
I wouldn't have believed anyone years back that I would inspire and coach some people on daily basis, both physical and through other social media platforms!
The most important is that I'm proud of being who I am now, continue to love myself harder like my brother would always tell, and never fear taking risks!
So has the year 2017 has begun, it means "Time for you to get back on your feet, to face and overcome any obstacles, strive for the sky because that's were your limitations can stop at! ✅Your Success, and Greatness of bliss will surely prevail as an evidence of your hard work and labored effort you've strived for throughout. 💪🏽 So make a good history out of this year, use your 364 days of 2017 wisely!❤
