There are three categories of food which provide calories: Carbohydrates, Fats, and Proteins. These macronutrients are important for health and we should consume foods from each category. Half of your calories should come from Carbohydrates. 50% carbohydrates is not low carb, though it’s not a high-carb diet either. Choose complex carbohydrates including natural fruit, whole grains, and vegetables containing micronutrients (vitamins & minerals). Avoid simple (fast-acting) carbs such as sugary drinks, baked treats, and fruit juice concentrate.
The other half of your daily calories should come from Fats and Proteins. Dietary Fats are different from stored body fat which is the result of consuming more calories than we use. Healthy Fats such as avocados, nuts (almonds & walnuts), and fatty fish (salmon) break down into fuel for the body without triggering insulin, allowing you to burn your fat stores. Insulin is the fat storage hormone, meaning it makes fat and prevents you from burning it. By eating plenty of lean Proteins, you’ll feel satisfied and less hungry. And, by choosing “good fats” and limiting “bad” ones, you’ll keep LDL cholesterol from rising and protect your heart in the process. You’ll also discover a way of eating that you can enjoy, rather than endure, for the rest of your life. At Round the Clock Fitness we call it No-diet LIFESTYLE!
Building skeletal muscle by exercise is far and away, without question, the fastest way to take excess glucose out of the blood stream where it causes damage, and put it safely into the cells, where it can be used for energy. And this doesn’t just happen while you exercise, it occurs for several hours after exercise as well. Exercise, reasonable calorie consumption, plus not eating for at least 12 hours after the last meal of the day, produces significant weight loss and blood sugar stabilization. Classes, included in the Standard Membership at Round the Clock Fitness, are a integral part of our Weight Loss and Diabetes Prevention program, regardless of your fitness level.
For a $30 annual fee, in addition to our very reasonable Standard Gym Membership, improvement will be measured quarterly utilizing the InBody Model 570 Body Composition Analyzer. A 45 second test using only impedance quickly measures fat, muscle, and total body water. Total body water data can be divided into intracellular and extracellular water, values important for understanding a user’s fluid distribution in medical, wellness and fitness contexts.
