body4u 6-week challenge:
UPDATE from Angela Houseman

The body4u 6-week challenge finishes on Friday 14th November. The program entailed six weeks of following a very ‘clean’ eating plan, combined with a strict training regime. Minimum requirements are given and each individual is responsible for constructing their own training plan to suit their lifestyle. Oh, and most importantly: NO ALCOHOL!

Each participant has their own reasons for entering the challenge, be it weight loss, improved fitness or just to kick start a healthy lifestyle.

So far, the enthusiasm and dedication has been outstanding and if our previous challenge is anything to go by, the results will be exceptional. It is extremely rewarding as a trainer to see the effort and results of our clients during this fantastic challenge.

Final weigh-ins will be completed and results will follow soon after – so watch this space!

Training tip

To eat breakfast before training or
not…this is the question! There are
numerous opinions on this topic from both
sides of the fence…which is not surprising
considering that there is absolutely no
right or wrong answer.

The basic premise behind exercising
before breakfast is that after fasting for
6-8 hours, the body is depleted of
carbohydrates and will use stored fat as its primary energy source.

So what’s the catch?

Breakfast kick starts our metabolism. So if you are going to replace breakfast
with exercise, you need to get going no more than 30 minutes after getting
out of bed. Any later than this and it is no different than not having breakfast
until later in the morning.

Another consideration is the type of exercise you undertake. Many people
may not have the energy to do a high intensity workout without breakfast. The
science behind this is that fat is not as efficient an energy source as the
glycogen from carbohydrates. So while you may want to miss breakfast if
you are doing a moderate intensity walk/run, most people are probably better
off to have a small meal before an early morning personal training session.

Lastly, it is important to eat a healthy and full breakfast very soon after
completing your carb-depleted, or fasted session. If you wait longer than half
an hour, you will risk losing muscle mass and will fail to provide your body with
the much needed nutritional support that encourages growth and recovery.
