How to Burn More Calories

When you’re trying to lose weight and transform your body, there are many factors to consider. You’ll want to work on your mindset, adopt a healthy lifestyle and take basic steps like increasing your daily calorie burn. In short, you’ll need to increase the number of calories you expend daily and try to eat less calories than you burn. This requires a commitment to exercise and setting fitness goals, which a transformational nutrition coach can really help you with.

Read on for a few ways to burn more calories in your everyday life.

Elevate Your Cardio

One of the best ways to improve your overall health and boost your caloric burn is cardiovascular training. This doesn’t mean jumping on the same machine every day and doing the same number of minutes. To boost results and caloric burn, you’ll need to regularly increase the intensity and duration of your workouts. In other words: UPLEVEL CONTINUOUSLY. The longer time you exercise increases both the...

5 Greens to Get in Your Diet

When you’re trying to lose weight and transform your body, it’s essential to consume protein—yet it’s just as important to get the macronutrients your body needs to build lean muscle and be as healthy as possible. Macronutrients are vitamins and minerals that your body can’t produce on its own but requires to function properly, which means they must come from your diet or supplements. The good news is, you can get these macronutrients from produce, especially green vegetables.

As a transformational nutrition coach, I recommend incorporating some of the following veggies into your diet to get closer to your weight loss goal while boosting your overall health.

1. Kale

There’s a reason this green leafy veggie continues to trend—it’s loaded with vitamins A, C and K, a fat-soluble nutrient that helps proteins bond to calcium ions. It’s also rich in dietary fiber, so it helps satiate your hunger, and is an excellent source of other...

How to Get Back on Track

Have you fallen off track lately? Sometimes life gets in the way of our healthy lifestyle and weight loss goals, which makes for an ideal time for a session with a transformational nutrition coach. Whether it’s a big weekend or event, holiday, vacation or something else that throws you off track, don’t get down on yourself—and don’t give up those weight loss or wellness goals. Resist the urge to get out the scale and beat yourself up—instead follow these steps to get right back on track with your healthy lifestyle.

1. Don’t Give Into Guilt

While overindulging is not something I promote, I don’t advocate guilt either. Beating yourself up for going astray will only make you feel worse. Instead, think of it as a learning experience. Evaluate and come up with strategies for handling the next big weekend that comes your way. What could you have done differently? What triggered you to give in to cravings? What can you do differently the next time?...

3 Reasons You May Be Struggling to Lose Weight

Are you struggling to lose weight? Sometimes, even when we work out regularly and follow the best meal plan, we may not see the scale budge. This can be due to obstacles we are unaware of that are keeping us from hitting our weight loss goals. As a transformational nutrition coach, I see these obstacles often. The good news is, they can be identified and addressed so that you can achieve the success you’re working so hard to achieve.

Here are three common obstacles and ways to break through them.

1. Too Much Stress

We all have different levels of stress associated with work, families and social lives, in addition to our health. That stress can accumulate or turn into anxiety, which increases your levels of cortisol, the body’s main stress hormone. This leads to belly fat, sugar binges and fat cravings, which all contribute to weight gain. Keep your stress in check by adopting some new techniques for reducing its impact on your life. Learn now to meditate, go for a walk...

5 Small Dietary Changes That Make a Big Difference

When it comes to losing weight, maintaining results and improving your overall health, lifestyle is everything. Whether you’re on a diet or working with a transformational nutrition coach to optimize your health and fitness, it’s essential to adopt healthy habits so that your results last for the long-term. The good news is, you can make small changes in what you eat that will make a big difference in your weight and help you transform your lifestyle into one that’s much healthier and beneficial.

Adopt these five tips to get closer to your goals for weight loss and healthy living.

1. Avoid High Calorie, Sugar-Laden Drinks

When it comes to calories, sugary beverages can creep up on you without satiating your appetite. Steer clear from soda, sugary juices and sports drinks that are packed with sweeteners and calories. Avoid beer and other alcoholic beverages as much as possible, and when you do drink, opt for white wine spritzers and drinks without sugary mixers.

The Skinny on Protein & Fiber

As a transformational nutrition coach, I often hear the question, “Why do we need more protein and fiber in our diets?” When you’re trying to lose weight, get in shape or improve your overall health, these are two essential components you should strive to get into your diet. Read on to learn why both fiber and lean protein should be a fundamental part of your meals.

Lean Protein

Consumption of lean protein is critical—we need it in our diet, coupled with exercise, to build muscle and maintain what we already have. Our muscle mass decreases with age, which, in turn, slows down our metabolism and can lead to weight gain. Loss of muscle mass doesn’t just lead to extra pounds; it can increase the risk of injury, especially the older you get. To combat these issues now and in the future, consume lean protein and get your workouts in. Keep in mind that, the more lean muscle mass you have, the more calories you will burn on a daily basis.

5 Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Lifestyle

How are your New Year’s resolutions going? Believe it or not, the majority of Americans have already fallen off the wagon—in fact, many fell off by the third week of January. Even if you’ve had a bad day or two, don’t give up. Never give up!

Each week, try something new that you know is healthy for you. Make a stop at the juice bar and load up on a green medley. Get a steamer and try it out every day for a week. Hide your keys for the weekend and walk everywhere you need to go. Take a new exercise class that you’ve never even heard of before. Whatever you accomplish...

Read on to discover the many benefits of walking—and learn why transformational nutrition coach Maria Mizzi recommends adopting it as one of your exercise modes.

1. Walking Improves Overall Health
