Coach Rob Cooks!

The U.S. Weight Loss Market is Worth $66 Billion

IMG_1008Take just a moment to really think about that — 68 BILLION DOLLARS!  This figure includes online dieting, meal replacement products, frozen entrees, support groups with meal programs such as Weight Watchers and Nutri-System, and many other “nutrition-based items.”  Why not just learn to cook clean, healthy, and indulge in your guilty pleasures in moderation?

You don’t have to be a professional chef like Chef B-Rizzle, to learn how to make low-calorie, tasty, and enjoyable meals. Many of my clients have taken ahold of their nutrition by learning to plan and cook in a new way.  No one way of eating works for everyone.  Here are a few things you can try to baby step yourself into new healthy meals in your house without eating pre-made, over-processed “diet foods.”

I would love to feature some of your recipe successes on my blog or in my NEW newsletter! if you would like to SHARE your recipes and photos with me, please message me, text me, tag me and use #CoachRobCooks!  BAM!!!

You better EAT your vegetables!

A Clean Fridge = A Clean Start

full-shopping-cart-470x246What is the best way to ensure you will make good food selections in the New Year — start in the grocery store!  Resist the urge to put anything unhealthy in your cart and make an active decision to bring home healthy choices.  By purchasing items that support your new healthier lifestyle, you will be one step closer to staying on track.  But FIRST, you have to make sure you have a clean fridge in which to put your new “clean foods.”

Did you know that November 15th is National Clean Your Refrigerator Day?  Yep, I didn’t country-girl-refrigerator-dirty-fridge-clipart-common-sense-country-girl-images-refrigerator-dirty-fridge-clipart-images-kitchen-dirty-fridge-clipart-kitchen-dirtyknow either!  The New York Times published a comprehensive instructional guide to deep cleaning your fridge.   In my opinion, any day that you want to start living a healthier lifestyle is a great day to clean out your refrigerator and pantry.  I challenge you to take time to set yourself up for success and clean out your fridge.  One of my clients sent me a photo after she cleaned her refrigerator and another after she stocked it with fresh veggies and healthier choices!  Post your pictures in the comments and tag me in your fridge photos!

Cheers to 2018 and Low-Cal Cocktails

2018 cheersWhy not start 2018 off by making a positive change and choosing a low-cal cocktail to toast the new year?  Most of the temptations of this seasons sweets and treats, but cocktails, holiday punches, and drinks can be just as packed with calories.  I offered Holiday Eating Tips and Tricks earlier this month, but this blog is focused on making better choices when it comes to your cocktail of choice.

With so many people focused on weight loss, cutting calories, and getting in-shape as their New Year’s Resolution, I suggest you start early on making good choices.  There are many ways to cut calories, but if you choose to partake in the midnight toast, consider researching your low calorie options, on Self Magazine’s website.
