I stumbled across this and it was too good not to share.
Milkshake Study YUM!
Grehlin is the hormone in your body that is responsible for hunger. (think growlin’ grehlin). The higher it is the hungrier you are. They did a study with mostly college students. There are a lot of studies on college students because for a couple bucks and a milkshake they’ll do just about anything. So, they had them fast for 3 hours! Basically, they needed them to be a little hungry. They checked their Grehlin levels when they got there and then gave them a milkshake called sensible delight that promised guilt free pleasure. At only 200-300 Calories, low sugar, etc. They had to wait an hour for the milkshakes effect show up in the blood. Then they checked the Grehlin levels again. They had fallen. Not far but some. From what we know the more you eat the more they fall so a small milkshake should...
Plateau. It can seem like such a dirty word at times.
You may feel:
Plateaus are not fun. You work so hard, yet you aren't seeing any positive results. To break out of a plateau you must do the opposite of all those feelings we just listed.
You need to create:
In order to do all of those things you'll need to tap into The Growth Cycle. There are three parts to creating growth and blasting through plateaus.
You'll need to understand why you're doing something (PURPOSE). You'll need to actually go out and do something (ACTION). And you'll need to find out more information or get some guidance (LEARN).
Here are a few examples of each.
We've run numerous experiments over the years trying to highlight one simple thing: you eat more than you think you do. We've shown this by having people make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pouring cereal, and creating their own lunch from materials provided.
We've found that, consistently, our clients are off by at least 50%. That is, they created a sandwich, inside a fitness studio, while the trainer was watching, and they still made it 50% higher in calories than what a "typical serving" would be. Some experiments show as much as 150% error! That's like thinking you ate 300 Calories, when in fact you ate 750!!!
The problem: just knowing about this bias does not help. If you read this article, and this information is new to you, it will not change the way that you serve yourself. Our clients are pretty aware of the bias that they have (and they are very intelligent people!) Yet they still over serve themselves in experiments.
My quick suggestion is this: ...
You will be taken directly to the 10 minute workouts!
