Last Chance to Get an Olympic Body!

08 Aug

Aside from training ten hours a day for most of your life, an olympic looking body, firm, svelte, full of energy and flexible is not as out of reach as you may think! Here are some tips on getting there the Dr in The KItchen way!

1. Make sure that you are free of food sensitivities or allergies which can cause joint pain, bloating, fatigue and unnecessary weight gain.

2. drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day. Dehydration often presents as fatigue, so before you reach for the sugar, have a glass of H2o the reassess.

3. make sure that you get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids found in flax, hemp and chia seeds, walnuts and all cold water fish. This will ensure that your joints and tissue stay well lubricated and oiled up so that you are flexible and able to do those twists, turns and back bends

4. Fuel up on healthy carbohydrates and protein, not sugar!

5 and finally add a little fun to your workout, sing along to your music, add in a few skips or jump rope and stir things up with activities that make you feel light fun and youthful!

    A misguided reader of this post could easily think you were recommeding they drink half their actual body weight in water every day! Sounds crazy I know, but people’s mistakes can be amazing (think of those GPS directions that lead to the railroad tracks that people will follow). I think you mean half your body weight in ounces, yes, i.e if you weigh 128 lbs, drink 64 ounces of water. Suggest you clarify this in the post!

      Thanks for clearing that up! You are very correct! I did in fact mean half your body weight in ounces per day.
