Nutrition

redzone FITNESS integrates four components that must be present in any result oriented fitness or body transformation program.

  1. Resistance Training to preserve lean muscle tissue and increase metabolism.
  2. Progressive Cardio Training to burn calories and improve the cardiovascular system
  3. Supportive Nutrition probably the most confusing.
  4. Accountability. Bi-Weekly Weigh Ins and Body Composition Measurements if you want to be a part of our transformation program.

When it comes to Supportive Nutrition, we focus on teaching you concepts and strategies to help you increase and optimize your exercise performance, energy, metabolism, fat loss and health. We show you how to eat properly and you'll enjoy the foods you buy at your local grocery store or when you go out to eat.

In order to get optimal nutrition, nutrition that supports your exercise efforts and your metabolism, you'll want to get meals frequently throughout the day. When you come to understand that metabolism simply refers to "the speed with which your body burns through food," you'll also understand that if you want to boost metabolism, you have to ask the body to process food often.

We encourage clients to seek a supportive meal every 3 - 3 1/2 hours. A supportive meal would be made up of the most natural food choices possible. It would be free from hydrogenated fat, low in or free from saturated fat, and free from simple sugar and refined flour. When it's impossible to get a solid meal in, we recommend protein shakes as an option.

A supportive meal would contain proper portion amount of lean proteins, favorable complex carbs at specific times of the day to help with your exercise performance and recovery, fibrous vegetables, moderate amount of fruit, essential fats and water.

It takes some getting used to, especially if you were raised on the idea of a small breakfast, a moderate lunch and a large dinner. After a week or two of supportive eating, appetite increases, energy levels increase, you feel better and you start noticing changes in your body composition as long as you are consistent in both nutrition and exercise.

Eat Thermic Meals

When you exercise your body exerts energy, calories are burned. If you understand that, you’ll recognize that the act of digestion burns calories.

When you eat lean proteins, favorable complex carbohydrates at specific times of the day, your body works hard to digest and assimilate the nutrients.

The real trick to burning fat, at least from a nutritional perspective, is eating frequent thermic meals (thermic means heat-generating and a calorie is a unit of heat).

Protein is the most thermic nutrient, but you want to make certain you also consume a balance of complex carbs for energy, fiber for optimal digestion, and essential fats for optimal health. A thermic meal would include a lean protein, a starchy carbohydrate, and a fibrous carbohydrate. Eat a thermic meal every 3 – 3 1/2 hours, and minimize or avoid simple sugars and refined carbs and your body becomes quite efficient at burning calories. The frequency of the meals allows blood sugar to remain stable as the complex carbs are slowly broken down preventing a need for an insulin spike. This allows you to burn fat virtually all day long.
