Guest Spotlight: Corey Howard, RKC, CK-FMS and owner of Results Personal Training Weighs in on his FOOD Strategy
Adrienne: I recently met Corey Howard,, at the Marketing workshop in San Diego. In addition to being in incredible athletic shape, Corey and his wife, Tricia both maintain super busy schedules. During the very brief breaks at the workshop several of us got to know each other a little better, and I was intrigued to learn about some of the rules and strategies they have been using personally and with their clients to achieve great results and healthy lifestyle changes.
Corey Howard: When fellow Read More..., Adrienne asked me to write an article discussing the eating philosophy I use with my clients, I panicked!
As a child in the 1980s, I formed some interesting ideas. For instance, it seemed every Summer, a pitcher would be endlessly filled with Crystal Light lemonade... with it's persistent lemon flavor, and odd bitter edge that would persist even though your cousin splashed a good gallon of chlorinated pool water at your face and right into your mouth. Seeing as I'm not into chemical flavors anymore, I found that slicing up a thoroughly scrubbed organic lemon into nearly "wafer thin"* slices and chucking the whole business into this fabled pitcher with some filtered water actually fit the bill. Here's the fun part - the bitter edge of the lemon's pith seems to fill the bitter edge requirement as well - no scary 1980s faux sugar necessary. If you really want some lemony goodness, squeeze a fist full of the lemon slices in the top of the pitcher.

It was a good weekend - I hope yours was too! My parents were in town and we had a good time talking about food, etc. and trying one of the new local restaurants which had some incredible things on the menu - regular Girya Girl favorites like roasted Brussels sprouts (they had paired them with carrots and parsnips!!!!), an incredible fritatta, and even a little "Faleo" on my part - since the three of us shared a (are you sitting down) specialty pizza. Now, before you freak out, I probably actually needed the carbs - I'd gotten pretty close to the "madness range*" a few days prior and this was actually a good thing. You may or may not
