“I count macros perfectly so why do I need nutrition coaching?”


Ah yes. A common statement. So you count macros 👏, but let me ask you:


➡ what are those macros comprised of? Do you fast all day and have five double cheeseburgers or a parmo, but are happy cuz “bro! I hit my macros!” Or do your macros consist of whole food choices?


➡ aside from macro counting, how does your hydration look? Your sleep? Your micronutrients? 


➡ are you eating regularly?


➡ how is your nutrient timing - pre and post workout?


➡ are you measuring body composition to either validate or disprove your macro goals? Who set your macro goals?


Wow. So many questions. Should probably book a consultation with a nutrition coach and focus less on perfect macros and focus more on healthy and sustainable nutrition habits.

Sean has taken this challenge in his stride and even started cooking

Sean has taken this challenge in his stride and even started cooking

Sean is our winner of week three for the 28 day nutrition challenge.

Sean has taken this challenge in his stride and even started cooking. Sean has given up his beloved fizzy drinks and even prepped energy ball snacks to give him that extra protein boost.

Sean wins himself some Dr Gus Bone shake to help him beyond the 28 day challenge and into the future. Sean is a bit of a joker and made us all laugh with a comment for international fried chicken day, but he’s proud to say he didn’t give into temptation and his will power was bigger then he previously thought.

Sean didn’t really need to lose weight, he wanted to lose body fat and build up muscle and I think it’s safe to say he’s been smashing them goals.

Well done Sean, Team Ulysses are very proud of you and all you’ve achieved in educating yourself in your new found healthy lifestyle.

Smashing out goals daily.   💪👊

Smashing out goals daily. 💪👊

All our 28 day nutrition challenge members have smashed it this week.  


Smashing out goals daily.   💪👊


However, Gemma has been picked for the first week's prize for her active involvement within the group. Posting messages and pictures of her food.  Sharing her highs and lows with the nutrition coaches and other members and she's also finally started to see results after years of plateau.


Gemma's goal has been to loose a fat %, and gain strength and muscle.  


Her end goal is in sight and she's super excited to see her results at the end of the 28 day challenge and beyond.    


Her smile is getting bigger along with her muscle mass and she oozes confidence. 


Gemma you've done amazing, keep up the great work and keep that end goal in perfect vision.  Ben was proud to hand over Gemma’s prizes. A bag of Natural Nutrients Chocolate Protein (to help Gemma’s sweet tooth} and of course the all important shaker to go along with it.

Thank you to Natural Nutrients and Dr Gus, for kindly sponsoring our 28 day Challenge.

Team Ulysses are proud of Gemma, all our members for the 28 nutrition challenge and all our CrossFit members too.

You may be shocked to hear this, nutrition and staying active are not the most challenging aspects of losing weight.

You may be shocked to hear this, nutrition and staying active are not the most challenging aspects of losing weight.

You may be shocked to hear this, nutrition and staying active are not the most challenging aspects of losing weight.  I repeat NOT. Wait, aren’t they the only two things. Well no...

 

The two most challenging aspects are in fact.

  1. Not changing your habits, or thinking you don’t have to change.

  2. Thinking that it’s an overnight process and will happen quickly.

In reality, the most challenging parts have nothing to do to with your actions and what training you do daily, but more to do with the way you think about the things you do.    

 

Anyone can start eating healthy and exercising daily, but if you don’t have the right mindset to change your habits which got you to where you are now, then you’re on the road to failure.

 

Be honest with yourself... What habits have you formed over months or even years that led you to being overweight?

 

Those are the habits you have to consider and you need to break them. If you break those habits and form healthier ones you’re on the road to success.

 

But remember, it was a slow process that got you to where you are now and it's going to be a slow process to where you want to be.   When you can accept that you will have to change your current habits to reach your goals and that it will take time, you will be on the path to success.

We have all been there — you are super excited to start eating healthier so you go out and buy tons and tons of fruits and veggies

We have all been there — you are super excited to start eating healthier so you go out and buy tons and tons of fruits and veggies

Ulysses Nutrition 28 Day challenge starts the 15th June. Are you signed up yet?

Some great tips from Healthy Steps Nutrition below. We’ll be giving you some hints an tips weekly to help keep you on track with your goals.

We have all been there — you are super excited to start eating healthier so you go out and buy tons and tons of fruits and veggies. Then, before you know it, 75% of what you bought has gone bad before you can eat them! Important things to keep in mind are :

1) Don’t keep your produce in the door of the refrigerator where temperatures fluctuate. Keep them in the middle or bottom drawers to keep temperatures more consistent and avoid spoilage.

2) Don’t keep raw meat and produce in the same area of the fridge or counter. Cross-contamination is likely to happen, and you risk the chance of getting ill.

Here are some tips to keep your favorite produce ready to eat.

VEGGIES:

Fresh heads of lettuce, spinach, kale and other leafy greens should be washed really well with water before refrigerating. Dry the leaves and store them in a clean plastic bag with a few paper towels. Switch out the paper towels as needed.

Asparagus should be stored in the refrigerator and will last longer if stored these two ways: wrapped with a moist paper towel or standing them up in a glass of cold water wrapped with a damp paper towel

Garlic and onions should be kept at room temperature and in a well-ventilated area.

Store your mushrooms in a brown paper bag in the fridge or a cool, dry place. Don’t use plastic or glass, as this will trap in moisture and shorten their shelf life.

Place fresh herbs in a jar or vase of water, just like you would a bouquet of flowers. They’ll last longer and you’ll have beautiful green decor for your kitchen!

FRUITS:

Tomatoes should be stored at room temperature away from sunlight and washed just before using. Be sure not to store your tomatoes in plastic, as this will trap moisture and increase the likelihood of spoilage.

Fruits from the “drupe” category such as mangoes, plums, peaches, avocados, and nectarines can be ripened at room temperature in a brown paper bag, and should then be refrigerated for longer storage.

Clean your berries in a mixture of 10 parts water and 1 part white vinegar. It will help remove excess dirt and help them last longer by preventing mold growth.

Pro Tip:

Freezing fruits and veggies at home is a fast and convenient way to preserve produce at their peak maturity. Peel and freeze your bananas, mango, papaya, cooked cauliflower, beets or sweet potato in a clean plastic bag. Use them later in baking or for delicious smoothies!
