Yesterday was such a great day Chicagoans!

Yesterday was a great day.  So what did you do to enjoy it, FitnessFam?  Did you run the lakefront?  Did you walk part way to work instead of taking CTA all the way?  Did you sit in your back yard sipping a glass of homemade iced green tea and taking in the rays of sun? 

Tell what you did in the comment box.

High Cal or Low Cal? That's not the only question

I saw something this morning where dieters were comparing food items based on calories, but not on nutritional factors. DIETERS, what's more important to you lowest calorie, slightly less nutritious items or slightly higher calorie, more nutritious items?

For the Mommies

Since Mother's Day is just around the corner it made me think about something a new mother recently asked me at a health event.  She wants to lose her "baby fat", but was concerned about what she could do or vitamins and supplements she could take that would be safe while she is breastfeeding.  The first thing that came to mind was the 90-Day JumpStart Program, which comes in 3 styles.  Of course she asked if she would get all the nutrients she and the baby would need.  Very valid question.  All mothers, expecially those breastfeeding are concerned about getting the proper nutrients.  My answer was YES!  The Basic JumpStart Program includes Super Supplemental Vitamins & Minerals w/o Iron, a multivitamin with at least 100% of your daily requirements of 12 essential vitamins and substantial amounts of your daily requirements of 13 essential minerals.  It also has extra B-vitamins for energy--which every mother can use.  The JumpStart comes with 2 SmartMeal protein meal replacement drinks, one in Vanilla and one in Chai, which provide 15 grams of protein and essential amino acids to build muscle and boost metabolism at only 130-140 calories per serving.  She can replace 1-2 meals a day, more depending on how old the baby is.  Women who have stopped breastfeeding can replace 2 meals daily.  Lastly, the JumpStart contains Soltic Energy, an all natural energy drink made with Guarana, green tea and B-vitamins for energy that comes gradually without the crash.  It's also sugar-free but sweetened with Stevia.  Again, something mothers with children of any age can utilize.  So moms, do something for yourself and your health this Mother's Day!
