Are You Eating as Healthy as You Think You Are?

In my line of work as a personal trainer and boot camp instructor in San Jose, one of the first things I do with new clients is offer to take a look at a 3-5 day food journal. It’s really the only way that I can help my customers make sensible changes that will lead to fat loss. I get a lot of resistance to the food journal with some folks. I hear phrases like this a lot: “I eat really well, Becky, so I can’t quite figure out why I’m not losing weight”.

Yes, some folks DO eat really well. Others—not so much (yet they think they’re doing great).

I was going to do a cool “eat this, not that for fat loss” video for you, but then I realized that a colleague of mine, the Abs Expert himself Scott Colby, did a great video a few months back that really illustrates how what you might think is a healthy diet really isn’t all that healthy.

Scott and I think a lot a like, so I’ll let Scott tell you ☺

The next time you go grocery shopping, think about some of the things Scott has presented here. Just because a packaged item says it’s healthy for you doesn’t mean it is.

Want to learn more about how to improve your diet from the Abs Expert himself?? You have an opportunity to spend some time vacationing, working out, and getting motivated by Scott Colby.

You can learn about his life-changing fitness adventure here:

Here’s a video capturing some of the comments of past Fitness Adventure clients (and you’ll hear how much weight one women lost while ON VACATION!)

Once again–the next time you’re at the grocery store, keep some of Scott’s ideas in mind. Are you really making a good, healthy, natural choice?

Neither Scott nor I think you have to be perfect with regard to nutrition. We just want to help you get better.

Committed to your success,
