I Kill Fat, Manhattan Personal Training was founded by Greg Sher in October of 2012. As an expert in resistance training, Greg’s mission as an independent personal trainer is to make training as convenient, efficient, and as fun as possible for his clients.
When working with Greg, his clients receive his undivided attention, custom resistance training programming, plant-based nutritional guidance, as well as meeting in convenient locations.
With Greg’s eBook: How Not To Be A Junk Food Vegan, Greg covers nutritional tips that will help you optimize your exercise routines. Here are just some of his tips:
1. Avoid wheat. Wheat has a high glycemic index rating. Meaning, when you consume wheat, your blood sugar levels rise, your body only feels temporarily satisfied until your blood sugar levels go down, and then you start craving more wheat-like foods. Recent studies have confirmed that people who eat a wheat-heavy diet, tend to consume more calories than people on a non-wheat diet which will lead to weight gain.
2. Be on the lookout for hidden sugar. A lot of these so-called “health drinks” and “health bars” have just as much processed sugar in them as soda and candy bars. When you consume anything that has more than 5 grams of sugar per serving (excluding fruit), you store those excess calories as body fat. Try consuming less than 5 grams of sugar per serving. This way, you can burn off those sugar calories quickly as energy. Plus, by consuming less than 5 grams of sugar per serving, you won’t experience a sugar high.
3. Omega-3’s are extra important for exercise. Besides lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels, Omega-3’s help reduce inflammation of the joints. No matter what form of exercise you’re doing whether it’s martial arts, weight lifting, or Yoga, your body needs joint support! Look into plant-based foods like chia seeds, hemp, walnuts, and flax seeds for your Omega-3’s.
4. Stick with plant-based proteins for optimum post workout recovery. The alkaline-forming properties of plant-based protein will help your body return to homeostasis after exercise. Your body’s natural pH is slightly alkaline, so we should eat a diet that compliments that. Diets high in alkalinity (mostly plant-based) will increase the oxygen levels in our blood. Just think how much better you’ll exercise with oxygen-rich blood!
