The BIG secret to getting fit
Sure, you do your best to eat healthy and live a fit and active lifestyle, but you’re still not satisfied with your body. Day after day of eating salads and hitting the gym and your body isn’t changing.
And yet there are people, whom you know personally, with phenomenal bodies and very little body fat. What are they doing differently than you? You work out and eat healthy too! Why doesn’t your body look like theirs?
What’s the big secret that they know about losing fat, getting lean, and looking amazing?
The answer is as simple as it is difficult: Avoid Sugar.
While you do your best to eat healthy, do you know how much sugar you are actually consuming everyday? The answer will surprise you.
The average American consumes over 80 grams of sugar everyday, an amount that’s easily three times more than is safe and healthful. How much sugar do you eat? Write down the sugar count on everything you eat for the next few days and then find your average sugar gram intake. Now work on slashing this number.
Part of the problem is that food items are often sneaky about how much sugar is really hiding within. Deceiving messages on the packaging imply that the contents are beneficial, causing us to ignore the high sugar content. In the end whatever supposed benefits being advertised are overshadowed by the negative effect of the sugar.
What’s the big deal about taking in a lot of sugar? Well, you won’t achieve a lean body while consuming a lot of sugar. So if you choose to indulge in sugar then forget about strutting your stuff on the beach this year.
Aesthetics aside, a high sugar intake is detrimental to your health as it causes your cells and organs to become acidic and a breeding ground for disease.
Going back to that guy or gal that you know who is perpetually lean…you can bet that their diet is extremely low in sugar. A low sugar diet is the key to keeping lean and it’s not had by simply avoiding the high sugar items, like candy and cake, it’s had by avoiding items with even low amounts of added sugars.
Take the next week to cut out all added sugars from your diet. Check in with your weight and your energy levels at the end of seven days and note any difference. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how quickly you’ll see results in both your weight and energy levels by making this simple, conscious move to avoid sugar.
Diet is only half of the equation when it comes to having a sexy, fit body. Exercise is the other half of the coin, and that’s where I come in.
Call or email me today to get started on an exercise program that’s designed to transform your body once and for all!
Little Bottle of Sweet
If you normally take your coffee or tea sweetened, then give this calorie+sugar-free tip a try: Carry a bottle of liquid stevia.
Stevia comes from the stevia leaf and is a more natural alternative than artificial sweeteners. A few drops in your coffee adds the perfect amount of sweetness without any grams of sugar.
Protein-Style Texas Sheet Cake
Here’s THE CAKE to make when you are bringing dessert to a picnic or potluck! It tastes so close to a traditional cake that the nutrition will blow your mind. Most notably, there is zero sugar in this delicious, sweet cake! There’s also 4 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein and zero gluten. Enjoy!

What you need
1 cup oat flour
3 scoops Chocolate Whey Protein
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 egg yolks
¼ cup Plain Greek Yogurt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (9oz) bag Lily’s stevia-sweetened chocolate chip
¾ cup coconut oil
¾ cup water
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup Butter or coconut oil
For the Icing
½ cup Butter or coconut oil
½ cup almond milk
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon honey
2 cups Swerve Confectioners Style
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup Raw Pecans, chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and position the oven rack to the middle position. Grease an 18x13-inch rimmed baking sheet. In a mixing bowl combine the oat flour, protein powder, baking soda and salt. In another mixing bowl combine the eggs, yolks, yogurt and vanilla and mix until smooth.
2. In a small pot melt the chocolate chips, coconut oil, water, cocoa powder and butter over low heat. Mix the melted chocolate mixture into the flour mixture until fully combined. Mix the egg-yogurt mixture into the batter until fully combined. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.
3. For the Icing: While the cake bakes, melt the butter, almond milk, cocoa powder and honey over low heat. Mix until smooth. Off heat, mix in the confectioner's Swerve and vanilla extract until smooth. Spread warm icing evenly over the hot cake and sprinkle with the chopped pecans. Let the cake cool completely on a wire rack for about an hour, then move into the fridge to chill for an hour, until the icing is set. Cut into 35 squares, serve and enjoy!

LADIES OF ADVENTURE BOOT CAMP SPEAK....
"I ABSOLUTELY LOVE bootcamp. The workouts are fun which is great b/c I am one of those people who needs a coach to kick my arse in gear. Stacy is really supportive and motivating. I had no idea when I was signing up for this just exactly what I was going to get from it. I can already start to see the benefits." -Danielle
"Bootcamp was great! It was a lot of fun to do the circuits in teams. I've actually found it pretty easy to get up, bootcamp feels more like fun than work (except for the sore muscles!)" -Elizabeth
"After starting Adventure Boot Camp I do not feel as fatigued as I usually did before beginning the sessions. I go out for long walks now and my husband has to struggle to keep up with me! I actually wake up at 4 am without an alarm ready to go to camp (insane, I know, who would of thought!)" -Marisol
When you are on the treadmill don’t hold on. If you hold on while walking or jogging, it decreases the intensity, which decreases your calorie burn by up to 24 percent.
