Holiday Party Guide Video (as Seen on TV)!

Posted on 28 November 2007 by Jason White

That’s Right. I was on TV in New York. I was invited onto Fox Channel 5’s morning show: Good Day New York with Ron Corning and Jodi Applegate. It is a morning talk and news show that is on weekdays from 5am to 9am.

They asked me to come on the show and give them some tips on how to get through this holiday party season without gaining weight. Here’s a snapshot of what we discussed with a couple extras thrown in.

Make sure you have a game plan.
Having a game plan means you know that you want to drink at this party so you are going to have a couple drinks. Fine. Since you are watching your weight though tonight you will skip the desserts. It is either one or the other NOT both. That is a decent game plan.

Most times if you are not at a dinner party there are going to be some hors’ dourves so which ones do you pick?

Go for the leanest protein you can find.
Eating lean protein is how you get the building blocks you need to make muscle. And the more muscle you have the better your chances at burning fat and getting lean. Examples of lean meat like on the show are roast beef, turkey, salmon, chicken. So first thing is seek out those things and get them on your plate. If they are plated hors’ dourves then just stick with the meat ones like the chicken on a stick or grilled shrimp.

Where are those veggies?
The very next thing you want to do is get some green vegetables right next to your protein. Green Vegetables are the best source of phytonutrients you will find and all you need to know about that is they are really good for you and you probably don’t eat enough of them as it stands. So eat them at the party.

Please GOD some Chocolate
Dark Chocolate is typically 70% or more cacao. Meaning It is 70% of the actual bean that makes it chocolate. Did you know that the active ingredient in chocolate is theobromine which is similar to caffeine.

So the closer to 100% you get the less sugar you get and the more kick!

In other words the closer your chocolate is to its original source the more you get of what you want.

The brownies and fruit sorbets and gelatto and mud pies all might taste good but in the end will do you no good in your weight loss efforts. And if you think there is chocolate in there you are wrong. Chocolate Flavor. Not the chocolate that might even be good for you. That chocolate doesn’t come with anything else like flour, butter, sugar, eggs, it’s just plain chocolate.

But Don’t Deprive Yourself
Hey listen, if you really want it… You should have it. ONE. Not several. Remember our game plan? Well if it is a dessert night then fine let’s have dessert! ONE. And of course No drinks. Enjoy that dessert. If you did everything else right you can have it guilt free.

The truth about lunch time…

Posted on 06 November 2007 by Jason White

Sandwich 1

Whether you are trying to lose weight or you are trying to make as much muscle as you possibly can you have to come to grips with a fundamental flaw in modern thinking.

We have grown accustomed to thinking about food on a “clock”. In other words ‘well, its lunch time, time to go eat’. Or the opposite: ‘OMG I am not sure I will make it to lunch time I am so HUNGRY’.

The fact is that our bodies cannot tell time. Your eyes may see a clock face and push that information into your processing unit, but it has little to do with your digestive juices (unless you look at the clock and then realize you are late and your stomach turns over)

Our bodies were designed to operate at peak efficiency by digesting a small amount of food every few hours and if you really want to be successful in your body fat battle then you had better start playing by your body’s rules.

Eat regularly throughout the day. Fasting or overly restrictive diets will enable you to lose weight
