The only Bootcamp Carson City that will blast your body into shape

There are many bootcamp Carson City programs out there that will blast you out of your boring day-by-day routine to teach you how to lose weight. While these bootcamp programs burn calories while you are there, once you are back into out in the real world, keeping the calorie burn going is not going t0 be so easy. Here are a few tips to keeping the weight off OUTSIDE of your bootcamp gym!

Bootcamp Body Blast Tip #1: Stay Warm

Go green! Not only will you be saving the world, you’ll be improving the shape of your bod too: In a study I found published in Physiology & Behavior, the researchers found that exposure to temperatures above the “thermoneutral zone” – the artificial climate we create with clothes, heating, or air conditioning – decreases our appetite and food intake. “At a slightly uncomfortable 81 degrees, the women in the study experienced a 20 percent decrease in appetite and ate 10 percent less than at 72 degrees,” says the lead author Margriet S. Westerterp-Plantenga, Ph.D., a professor of food-intake regulation in the department of human biology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.

Instead of cranking on the air conditioner every time you feel a little bit steamy at home, learn to endure slightly warmer conditions. Hitting the “off” button is well worth a little discomfort if it helps you lose some extra weight (and to keep it off!).

Bootcamp Body Blast Tip#2: Sleep More

6 a.m. morning workouts are great… if you are falling asleep 10 p.m.

In a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, women who sleep 7 or more hours a night are less likely to gain weight than women who sleep less. Those who sleep only 6 hours a night are 12 percent more likely to gain substantial weight-33 pounds on average over the course of 16 years! (Women who sleep a meager 5 hours have a 32 percent chance of gaining 30 or more pounds.)

Other studies have linked lack of sleep to a higher Body Mass Index and have found that it negatively affects levels of the appetite-regulating hormones ghrelin and leptin.

Don’t sacrifice your pillow time – not even for an extra late-night work out. And quality matters more than quantity, so taking a snooze later won’t help. “In a 20-minute power nap you don’t get into the deep-sleep stage,” says Donna Taliaferro, Ph.D., associate professor of nursing at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, who conducts research on sleep and circadian rhythms. “You need to go through the cycles of sleep over a few hours to get the restorative rest that allows your body to work properly.” Bottom line: You are better off sleeping through your workout every other day than stumbling to a sunrise bootcamp session and dragging through on too little sleep.

Bootcamp Body Blast Tip #3: Booze?

So what? Alcohol may not be the diet destroyer you thought it was. Recent research showed that those who have a single drink a couple times a week have a lower risk of becoming obese than either teetotalers or heavy drinkers. Those who consume more than four drinks daily, on the other hand, boost their odds of obesity by 46 percent.

Go ahead and have a drink; just avoid belly-busters like a 245-calorie pina colada. Instead, raise a glass of heart-smart merlot (123 calories per 5 ounces), Bud Light (110 calories per 12 ounces), champagne (88 calories per 4 ounces), or sake (39 calories per ounce). Or mix a 100-calorie cocktail, like vodka and diet tonic or tequila and club soda. “Just make sure you drink it with some healthy food, such as raw veggies with low-fat dip or whole-wheat pita and hummus,” advises Dawn Jackson Blatner, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. Eating slows the rise of alcohol in your blood — and cuts the odds you’ll drunk-order the deep-fried mozzarella sticks :)

Even with all of these great ideas, many people can’t find success on their own. Luke Wold with Wold Fitness Personal Training can help you get in the best shape of your life!
