Staying on track during the challenge!

Results of week 2 are starting to come in.  So far so good.  We are noticing some trends though that need to be addressed.

  1. People are losing weight but in doing so are also losing some lean body mass….not our goal!  Why is this happening?  Typically it stems from not eating the right foods and types of exercise.  First, If you are not consuming enough lean protein along with getting healthy fats in your diet, the body will struggle to maintain its lean body composition.
  2. Secondly, the type of exercise you are doing will impact this.  Endurance training low to moderate intensity exercise will raise stress hormones in the body and can trigger the breakdown of muscle tissue along with encouraging the body to store calories as fat.

So how do we fix it?  You simply need to follow the meal plan layed out in the Cruiseship book that gives you a meal by meal breakdown to make sure you are feeding your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and transform.  Next you need to attend our workout classes at the office along with doing your MaxT3 video on the other days.  The workout are designed to help your hormone systems get balanced and working in your favor rather than against you at this point.

Stay focused we are two weeks into the challenge and the best results are still to come.

Be Well,

Dr. Tim
