A New You in 52! Christine's tips for week #2

Every week, Celebrity Nutritionist Christine Avanti has tips to help us get healthy and become a "New You in 52!"

Here are Christine's tips for this week:

 1) How to boost metabolism and burn fat with food.  Simply put-you must eat a “PC combo” (a lean protein with a healthful carb) for every meal.  This is how Christine personally lost 30 pounds of fat—and if she can do it you can do it!!

 

2) Why eat a PC combo?  What does this do? 

Answer: It stabilizes blood sugar and hormone levels so your body can start burning fat naturally. 

Says who?  Harvard Medical School researchers proved this in 1999!!  So start eating and stop starving!!

 

3) What is an example of a “PC Combo” meal?  Go to www.christineavanti.com for Christine’s infamous steak with and herb mashed potato recipe.  

 

Tune in next week, when Christine food swaps your favorite breakfast recipes.

New YOU in 52 Week 1 Tips!

If it's you're goal to take better care of the body that God gave you.  New YOU in 52 is a chance to learn something new every week that will help you stick to your resolutions and reach your goals.  Nutritionist Christine Avanti shared some great tips with us this Friday.  Here is what she says about a great place to start!

1) Clean out your pantry and fridge of any foods that have more then 10 grams of fat per serving. Also remove any foods that are high in preservatives i.e., package foods such as Ramen noodles, sugar loaded cereals, soda, juice, frozen pizza, ice creams etc.

2) Grocery shopping tips: a) Healthful carbohydrates: buy fresh or frozen fruits and veggies that are in season such as apples, oranges, grapes, squash, artichokes, sweet potatoes, bok choy and broccoli. b) Healthful protein sources that won't break the bank: whole chicken, frozen shrimp and low fat cottage cheese.
