Don’t leave me hangin, guys!? Where you from and tell me why you follow me? Handstands... gymnastics... nutrition... kuz I’m weird and you like it?! I’m so curious!
If you’re new here, I wanted to introduce myself! My name is Amber (aka AMBO) and I am a Certified Personal Trainer , Fitness Nutrition Specialist and Behavior Change Specialist . I also have my Bachelors degree in Psychology and LOVE everything that has to do with the mind. It fascinates me!!
I absolutely LOVE what I do! Work is seriously play to me! And no joke, my clients are seriously the shizzz… you all know who you are!
I’m definitely not your average IG fitness trainer. I do love weight lifting but I much prefer body-weight training (aka calisthenics/gymnastic strength) because it gives me that full body strength that makes me strong enough to play!! I’m basically like a big grown up kid and I just want to play like all the time. Along with...
If you want to be successful at living a healthier life, it helps to plan ahead. If you don't plan ahead, you're going to choose what's easiest in the moment. That's human nature. If you want to outsmart yourself, you'll want to make meal prepping a habit. That way, when you're in a hurry, stressed out, or just plain tired, the healthiest choice can be as easy as grabbing a meal prep container and throwing it in the microwave.
I have found so much success with meal prepping. I even have a meal prep buddy! We each prep 8 meals and then swap 4 with each other so we have two meals (4 of each) to choose from all week. It has been amazing!!!
I wanted to give you guys my favorite meal prep tips so that you can be successful in your fat loss journey or healthier eating journey!
#1 Get enough containers for a week! Don't forget to purchase small ones for sauces. These are my favorite meal prep containers!
Macros are all the rage right now and for good reason! Forget the days of 'low carb keto plans,' 'clean eating only,' and 'elimination diets!' Those don't work long-term! It is SO frustrating as a nutrition coach (ACE-CPT,FNS) to hear people go on these different types of diets. I like my clients to take a different approach. An approach that:
• teaches you portion control instead of elimination.
• teaches you how to have a healthy relationship with food and eliminate binge-eating.
• teaches you what macros (protein/carbs/fat) your food is made of so you can be more educated about what you are putting into your body.
• teaches you how to incorporate more nutrient-dense food into your diet that tastes GOOD! Who wants to eat chicken, brown rice and broccoli every day? I sure don't! When I'm dieting, I eat amazing food and never tire of my recipes thanks to:
