Fit as Hel members’ lunch

I took a few local Fit as Hel members out on a lunch last weekend. Jeannie and Khelda are also my 1-to-1 PT clients and Eniko does my gym classes every week. All of these ladies have come a long way on their fitness journeys since joining Fit as Hel — and I can’t thank them enough for their enthusiasm, activity and support in our online community.

I intentionally chose a buffet as our lunch destination – and cheekily wanted to see what kind of foods they’d go for. Personally, after eating two plates and a fruit dessert during the meal I didn’t have to eat anything else for the rest of the day – just green tea and plenty of water. This way, when you listen to your body, you’ll not get fat if your food choices are balanced also when eating out. I hoarded loads of protein (mainly chicken and eggs), some sushi, plenty of veg and drank water with the meal… And then had honey dew, apple, grapes and orange for dessert :-).

Eating in a buffet can be tricky and bad for the waistline. Fill your plate with different colours and drink water. Never eat at at a buffet late at night.

Everyone is welcome to join us on our next lunch together – this’ll be in Gateshead 3rd March 2014 after a deadlift masterclass at the gym. Please get in touch if you’d like more details – see you all soon! :-)

Fit as Hel DETOX: How-to

turkey sandwich

I’ve been on a detox for nearly 6 weeks now. I’ll post about my results in another post.

Here are the guidelines for a Fit as Hel detox:

Duration: 1-6 weeks
Nutrition: Follow your own Fit as Hel nutritional guidelines = never overeat and make sure to hit your protein goals.
Hydration: 2.5 litres of a water per day (3 litres for men). No alcohol during the detox.
Exercise: Four 10-15 minute workouts per week (on top of what you’d normally do).

AND THAT’S IT!

I’m going to run Fit as Hel member challenges every now and again. You guys can then post about your experiences (and success) in our closed Facebook group.

All the (home/gym) workouts are naturally provided in “the zone”, as I like to call the restricted content members’ area. If you want your personal nutritional guidelines updated just re-fill in the form in the nutrition bit.

The next detox challenge will run 9th – 13th December (so that you can then eat what you want over Christmas, ha)! Get your friends to take part as well!! (Just click on online membership at the top)

P.s. As always, no forbidden foods!!
