RaceStart’s Take on Nutrition

Hello Warriors!

I recently discovered a new love for cooking. Domesticated! The sites listed HERE make cooking easy and enjoyable- They basically make a hectic lifestyle a little less “cray cray”. I feel much more productive mentally as well as physically when I know my body is receiving the fuel it needs. I notice a difference in how I perform at my job, during my workouts, sleep patterns, as well as my social life.

Remember that to be “fit” or “healthy” we must find balance with our workouts as well as our nutrition. It is very important that we feed our bodies the fuel they need to perform at our desired level of intensity during our workouts.

I believe in the Paleo lifestyle, however, I also believe that it is not for everyone…At least not right away. If you already eat fairly clean, then go for it! However, if you’re someone who eats mostly fast-food then you may need to take a different approach. Maybe try eliminating one thing from your diet at a time, and continue to set new monthly goals. I always say give Paleo living a solid 3 weeks to see if it’s for you. Basically, you are feeding your body whole foods, packed with rich nutrients- No processed crap! During this trial period you should pay attention to your performance at the gym, as well as work and home life, and sleep patterns. Eating whole foods, rich in vitamins will give you more energy during your workouts, but also when you’re at work, or home with your significant other, the kids, and out with your friends.

There is definitely more preparation involved, but that’s also called being an adult. Don’t expect your body to change if you aren’t willing to make a change.

*NOTE: The most common fault with the paleo lifestyle is over eating. Most of the food is AMAZING! Make sure to stick to portion control.

Happy cooking!

The Game Changer, Shakeology

Visit our Nutrition page for info on our “slim down shake”. Shakeology has not only helped aid my athletic performance at the gym, but has significantly helped fight my sugar cravings. This has allowed me to be more stress free with my nutrition regimen. Shakeology really takes the guess work out of it. As a result I have more energy to complete every day tasks, without having to leave my desk. If I get stuck working late, or just feel like having a “treat” this is not only a nutrient dense option, but it fills me up and satisfies those cravings! I no longer feel like that “diva” in the snickers commercial (Oh, don’t act like you don’t know what I’m referring to).

It’s quick, fast, easy, and a HEALTHY way to stay on track! 

I will only promote products that I believe in. With that being said, RaceStart now sells sample size packets at the Gym Shop. This will allow you to try out different flavors before making a commitment. Decide for yourself. I challenge you to the taste test 🙂

RaceStart Training is on Pinterest

Over the past few months I’ve been preparing a Pinterest page to help make our shopping/prep work a little easier. This is what I use to prepare my weekly grocery list. Here you will not only find my favorite eats and treats, but I also gathered mobility tips, workouts, and new fitness trends! enjoy!

What is Shakeology?

Shakeology IS NOT just a protein powder, it’s so much more! It’s  a meal or snack replacement shake that’s filled with over 70 ingredients in it. That would take up to 7 trips to the salad bar to eat the same amount of nutrients that are inside every Shakeology shake. Shakeology is made from the finest whole-food sources that are available. Shakeology really makes it easy for us by taking the guesswork out of nutrition! Two words: GAME CHANGER!

The ingredients include:

  • Camu-Camu
  • Goji berry
  • Acai berry
  • Acerola cherry
  • Bilberry
  • Barley grass
  • Blue-green algae
  • Chia seeds
  • Wheat grass (just to name few)

Why Drink Shakeology Every Day?

It can help you:

  • Lose weight – especially if you replace a meal with Shakeology every day.
  • Reduce junk food cravings – drink it in the morning to enjoy this benefit throughout the day
  • Increase your energy and feel healthier.
  • Improve your digestion and regularity.
  • Lose Weight—the Healthy Way

Why starve yourself thin, when you can lose weight—and maintain that healthy weight loss—just by drinking one Shakeology shake every day?

It’s the simple recipe for success:

  • You won’t feel deprived, because every delicious shake tastes like a sinful treat.
  • The proteins and healthy fats will help you feel fuller longer, so you’re less likely to snack.
  • Superfoods help your body reduce cravings for junk food.
  • Increased energy means your workouts feel easier.

What better way to take the sting out of your craving for sugary snacks and junk foods, than with a sumptuously delicious shake that feeds your body the nutrients it really craves?

How Shakeology short-circuits your urge to snack:

  • Protein-rich nutrient-dense formula helps you feel full and reduces the tendency to “cheat” throughout the day.
  • Helps you curb junk food cravings while helping you crave healthier choices.
  • You’re feeding your body the nutrients it needs, so it feels more satisfied.
  • So delicious, it tastes like you’re cheating!

Feel New Energy!

Drinking Shakeology every day can dramatically improve your energy levels and overall stamina. Just ask all of our customers who used their newfound energy to take on—and succeed—at a new fitness program!

What more can you do with a little extra daily energy?

  • Power through your day, and cross more off your to-do list.
  • Get your fitness program off to a great new start.
  • Help your body’s internal processes work more efficiently.
  • Enjoy life . . . and get more out of every single moment
  • Help Improve Digestion and Regularity

When you drink Shakeology, you won’t just feel healthier, you can actually be healthier. That’s because it helps all your body’s processes function more efficiently. And what better definition is there for good health?

How Shakeology gets you healthy from the inside out:

  • Fiber and probiotics help you “get regular” so you eliminate toxins built up in your digestive system.
  • Proprietary blend of prebiotics and probiotics help create a healthy intestinal tract which aids digestion.
  • A healthier digestive system makes it easier to absorb key nutrients.
  • Digestive enzymes also help your body to increase the absorption of nutrients

Here’s my 2 cents on Shakeology:

Not everyone needs to lose weight, but everyone DOES need to be healthy and to have sustaining energy throughout the day. When was the last time you tried to lose weight and you were grouchy, tired and unhappy because you were STARVING??? Shakeo is all about nutritional DENSE ingredients that will provide you with all of the vitamins and nutrients that you need in order to feel great, not be starving or to feel deprived while trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It’s my “fast-food”, energy drink that helps me to feel healthy and maintain my weight. It helps to improve my diet by giving me adequate nutrition and energy!!

This is not a weight-loss shake — it IS a NUTRITION shake!
