Every Thursday at the Lucille Roberts Gym I meet with a nutritionist and weigh in. I have to admit it’s the most stressful and rewarding day of my week.
At the beginning of the session, the nutritionist obtains my stats using the Ironman Glass InnerScan Body Composition Monitor. It tells us my weight, body fat , body water and muscle mass weight. It also tells me my metabolic age (how old my body believes it is). My metabolic age is 50. I’m hoping to lower this as much as possible by the time March rolls around.
Having a nutritionist work with me has helped me considerably. Every week, she’s given me some ideas that I have been able to incorporate into my lifestyle. She’s also made sure to go at my pace. My body and lifestyle are unique – as are yours; as a result, the nutritionist can’t hand me a one size fits all nutrition plan. It won’t work. Taking into account my lifestyle (stressful), my job (sedentary) and my current fitness level (sedentary), she was able to give me tips on how to jack up my metabolic rate.
Below I’ve noted a few of her suggestions. Keep in mind these were her suggestions to me and may not work for everyone.
