Protein snacks to conquer your sugar cravings

If you are craving sugar it is often a sign that your blood sugar levels aren’t balanced.

Before you reach for the ‘quick fix’ your body thinks it desires try a protein hit mixed with good fats and/or good quality carb. Then see if you still feel like the chocolate bar you nearly devoured (I bet you wont)!

I have put my favourite snack ideas below:
– Boiled eggs! Boil up a batch of eggs at the start of the week and keep them in the fridge. They are the perfect ‘go to’ protein snack.
– Carrot and celery sticks dipped into a hummus dip. Make sure your hummus is either homemade or just has very basic ingredients i.e. chickpeas, olive oil, garlic and lemon juice.
– Chobani yoghurt (unflavoured) with berries, and raw almonds.
– A can of Sirena tuna in water with cherry tomatoes and goat fetta.
– Protein smoothie – a good quality milk, blue berries, coconut oil, Proper Protein Vegan Coconut Protein Powder and half a frozen banana.

There is something about waking up early in the morning for a group fitness session with like-minded enthusiasts, don’t you think?

There are many reasons outdoor group training gives fantastic results for people and I am going to tell you why.
Bootcamp
ON AVERAGE YOU BURN 25% MORE ENERGY WHEN TRAINING OUTDOORS
Did you know that? Yep. The different terrains, the temperature, having loads of space around you are just a few of the reasons you burn more energy outdoors than slaving away on cardio equipment indoors.
MOST PEOPLE WORK HARDER WHEN THEY ARE CHALLENGED BY A GROUP
Even if you aren’t a competitive person, just by training with a group that may have an average fitness level higher than yours will raise your mindset and the intensity that you work at. If you are competitive then group training is even more perfect for you. Not only will you be trying to beat everyone else but in doing so you are challenging yourself and raising the intensity for everyone else. Go you!
HAVING A QUALIFIED TRAINER
Not only will having a great trainer motivate you and challenge you, but they will also provide a balanced program that includes all the types of exercises and training types that will get you to your fittest self! A good trainer will provide strength exercises for the whole body with a focus on core based functional movements. They will always correct your posture and technique and they will also challenge you with some HIIT work and plyometrics (as you get fit enough).
MORE COST EFFECTIVE
Group training often works out significantly cheaper than personal training and in my opinion will produce the same results if not better results (bootcamp style programs, not cardio based gym classes). If you are on a budget and don’t mind fitting in with a timetable and are happy to train amongst others, then definitely give group training a go!
