I heard High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is great for weight loss. What is it and how can I get started?
HIIT is a method of exercise that helps with your cardiovascular health, reaching high intensity heart rates for a shorter amount of time. HIIT workouts are proven to help burn fat more than moderate and continuous workouts, and decrease potential health risks. Based on your level of fitness, you should start slowly before striving for HIIT HR, or heart rate. Follow this link for more information.
Studies show HIIT not only gets your body leaner, but helps improve cardiovascular disease, reduces the risk of cancer and depression and results in a healthier lifestyle.

How do I know my ideal weight?
There is no “ideal body weight.” Calculating your body mass index (BMI) using your height and weight can determine a healthy range for your body, but the BMI has limitations and does not account for gender, ethnicity or body composition. Body composition can easily be determined by bioelectrical impedance, with a special scale found in certain doctors offices and gyms, but not everyone has access to this technology. Remember when considering your goal weight, that “normal” is subjective. Take into account your own individual circumstances. Any amount of weight loss can have a profound impact on your health.

Meal replacements are also a calorie controlled meal addition or snack option even for those not interested in weight loss…and is a great strategy to limit excessive between-meal snacking. However, they should never be used in the exclusion of whole food and never used to restrict calorie intake below 1200** calories per day unless under the supervision of a doctor.

Why are there carbs in these bars?
Not all carbohydrates are bad! In fact, studies show there are health benefits of incorporating good carbs into your diet. For example, fiber is a carbohydrate but important for digestive health. Fiber can help alleviate constipation that can occur with a high protein diet.
Natural plant fibers can also act as a pre-biotic. Pre-biotics are important because they provide fuel for the good bacteria in our digestive tract. Good or beneficial bacteria can help support an optimal digestive tract.
