NUTRITION

There is an abundance of information on proper nutrition and most people have a hard time choosing the path that is best for them. Tx3 keeps it very simple.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. With that being said avoid white carbohydrates such as, white rice and white breads. Stick with whole and multi-grains such as:

  • Whole oats/oatmeal
  • Whole Wheat
  • Whole-grain corn
  • Popcorn
  • Brown rice
  • Whole rye
  • Whole-grain barley
  • Wild rice
  • Buckwheat
  • Bulgur (cracked wheat)
  • Quinoa
You can add whole grains at meals and snacks:

  • Snack on ready-to-eat, whole-grain cereals such as toasted oat cereal.
  • Try a whole-grain snack chip, such as baked tortilla chips. (portion sized)
  • Popcorn, a whole grain, can be a healthy snack with little or no added salt and butter.
Be sure to hydrate well throughout the day. Aim for at least 64 ounces of fluids (water being the first choice) daily. There are 2 more rules to remember.
  • If you eat 1500 calories in a day and burn off 1500 calories a day, your weight will remain the same. Substitute any number of calories you want, it will always hold true.
  • If you want to lose one pound you have to burn 3500 more calories than you eat. If you want to gain a pound you have to eat 3500 more calories than you burn. Your caloric balance is important for weight loss and gain.
Our body knows one thing, food=fuel and a decision needs to be made – is your body a luxury Aston Martin vehicle or a broke down junker barely moving each day? Tx3 wants to make sure that everyone has a good balance of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, fruits and vegetables. Don’t think of food as good or bad, create a scale: bad, good, better and best. Become the luxury Aston Martin and drive wherever you want in great shape, wonderful health and feeling energized.
