Summer Body Beautiful Nutrition

June 11, 2014 at 12:47
Posted by Rachael Woolston

Getting in shape and feeling good is not just about working out but what you eat too. That’s why we provide eating plans with our camps along with dedicated online healthy eating groups where you can ask for advice and be inspired

When it comes to nourishing your body, and ensuring you stay fit, healthy and looking the best you can no matter what your age, eating the right breakfast is crucial. But what is the RIGHT breakfast?

Ask most women, and they would choose porridge or muesli as being the kind of breakfast that will help them to lose weight. It will if you’re usual breakfast is a croissant and a latte.

BUT if you real aim is shape change, protein is queen of breakfasts, whether that is eggs, a protein shake or even Greek yoghurt (many other forms of yoghurt contain sugar) with roasted nuts and seeds.

This food souce is the only thing that helps your muscles to repair and create new muscle tissue, absolutely VITAL if you want to avoid fat spread.

Forget running, cardio, and long drawn out workouts, creating muscle tissue through lifting weights and then supporting that change with the right nutrition is essential.

And why is building muscle SO important, particulalry from your mid twenties onwards? Because as women we lose muscle mass at the rate of 0.5 – 15 per YEAR from the age of 25. And as muscle is active and burns calories even as you’re sitting down, that means you will put on weight UNLESS you use weights.

But all this doesn’t mean having to deprive yourself of delicious foods.

Our eating plans provide a range of restaurant worthy breakfasts, not to mention the recipes that are shared via our online healthy eating community which you gain access to with our plans.

Want to finally get the missing piece to the body shape up puzzle? Then don’t miss signing up to our Summer Body Beautiful Camp (starts July 2nd) by June 23rd which entitles you to our diet plan, online healthy eating group and assessments worth over £30.

How to get a tummy like an Olympian

Watching the Olympics, whether its the sprinting or beach volleyball, you can’t help admiring the flat, toned tummies of the female athletes.

So, how do you get a tummy like Jessica Ennis or any of the other incredible female athletes? Obviously, it requires a great deal of training and these athletes are not doing it for the purpose of looking great but to ensure they are stronger, faster or more powerful in their javelin throw, sprint, spike or whichever sport they play.

But even behind all of that training, it also comes down to eating well.

‘Diet is key as the surface layer of fat covering the abs needs to thin enough for them to show through,’ explains Jessica Ennis’ coach Toni Minichiello. ‘The first rule of six-packs is less food unfortunately.’

If you get that right, try these three exercises which will  not only help tone your tummy but help prevent injury, backache and make you a better runner (or javelin thrower if you fancy trying it out). These are all intermediate exercises and not recommended for beginners.

The Plank

The queen bee of core exercises, if done correctly this helps to flatten the tummy and protect the back. To do correctly, lie on your tummy, and bring your elbows directly under your shoulders, palms facing up. Come on to your feet so your body creates a straight plank, imagining there is an invisible cord pulling you from the crown of your head through to the tail of your spine.

DON’T: Dip your hips and avoid clasping your hands or legs together which just encourages your leg muscles and upper back to take over. This is an intermediate exercise so do not attempt if you are a beginner.

Tuck Sit ups

Lie down flat, legs out straight in front of you and then sit up quickly, drawing your legs up and in as if you are doing a tuck jump. Repeat as fast as possible for 20.

DON’T: use your hands to pull yourself up, or raise your hips off the ground. If you find yourself doing this stop. Also ensure your shins stay parallel with the ground throughout; bringing your heels to your bum is cheating.

Oblique Sit Ups

These work the muscles in the side of the tummy, which help cinch the waist in, and are great for bringing strength to twist and throwing movements, and also help power sprinters and runners.

Lie on your back, legs bent. Drop your knees to the right hand side and now crunch up in small movements ensuring your elbows stay wide in your peripheral vision. Ensure your knees stay down and that you raise up equally rather than lifting just on one side. Do 20 and switch to the other side.

DON’T clasp your hands behind your neck and cause strain on your neck, or flap your arms to come up. Keep your elbows wide and in line with your ears throughout the movement.
