Chelsea Handler, author of Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea, is a well-known alcohol enthusiast who loves to dine out. Both are often considered nutrition no-no's, so the question is, how does she manage to keep her body looking so good all the time?
Her personal trainer!
Mark Macdonald, author of Body Confidence, believes you can drink and eat the foods you love while STILL getting the body you dream of. If you don't believe it, just take a look at Chelsea's fabulous figure! She writes in the forward of his first book:
“I met Mark Macdonald three weeks before my twenty-seventh birthday, and he changed my life forever. I was sick of starving myself and never losing any weight, and not exactly open to the idea of cutting alcohol out of my life. After spending an hour with Mark, I realized how little I knew about food, and how many bad habits had been formed from my childhood in New Jersey.”
Mark's Body Confidence reveals the secret to maintaining a great body while still enjoying yourself lies in stabilizing blood sugar levels within an optimal range.
This state of balance is essential for losing fat and gaining the lean body mass that turns the body into a calorie-burning machine.
The book explains stable blood sugar can be achieved through three key nutrition factors:
1. Meal intervals—Our bodies need to be fueled constantly and consistently. The best way to achieve this is to eat small and balanced meals every three to four hours, including a small meal within one hour of waking and within one hour of going to sleep.
2. Nutrition ratios—Protein, fat, and carbohydrates are the three nutrients essential for our survival. In the correct ratios, they keep our bodies in a state of balance or homeostasis.
3. Calories per meal—Your body can only process a certain amount of food at once. You should never be starving before a meal, and you should never be completely full after.
