You've read some of the rules here, some from me, and some from your inbox. Now I'd like to officially introduce the Fortza Fit Nutritional Philosophy.

In case you haven't noticed, being an active personal training client of mine or group class member, having a training program with me isn't just about fitness, it's a way of life. Today I pride myself in offering a holistic and clinically proven approach to achieving a better body, because it takes much more than the act of physically working out to crate a body that is truly fit. While you're working on your evolution, I'm also working on mine. So to close 2017 with a golden bow and kick off 2018 with with a bang, I'm excited to introduce to you the New Fortza Fit Nutrition Philosophy comprised of 12 fundamental Nutritional Rules.

Nutrition is an integral part of the Fortza Health Platform of Exercise, Nutrition and Regeneration. Too many nutritional programs focus on the narrow aims of weight loss and sports performance. The 12 rules are meant to address behaviors and psychological considerations that are essential to optimizing not just athletic performance, but performance in life.

The 12 Nutritional Rules:

Focus on eating nutritionally dense foods rather than focusing on calories.

Get Your Nutrients From Food, Not Supplements

Eat Minimally Processed Foods, Without Added Sugars

Fuel Properly Pre, and Post- Workout

Eat Predominantly a Vegetable Based Diet

Eat Clean, Lean Protein With Each Feeding Opportunity

Increase Intake of Water and Healthy Fluids

Eat Locally, In Season, and Organic Whenever Possible

Eat Healthy Fats Daily

Regulate Blood Sugar by Being Strategic about Total Carbohydrate Load

Listen to Your Body's Hunger and Satiety Cues

Employ a Seasonal Detox to Help Achieve Optimal Results

The basis of the approach is to look at nutrition from a cellular level. Specifically, that eating to fuel the mitochondria — the powerhouses of your cells — can prevent premature aging and disease, as well as ensure that your body performs optimally. Why is this so important? Because science shows that the majority of Americans are deficient in the micronutrients necessary to keep their bodies healthy and functioning at peak levels. And a body that functions at peak levels is a body that is going to get results — no matter what the goal.

Through education, we can help change that. I've combined research and scientific teachings from leading experts in an effort to create a new way of eating. By making key dietary choices, you’ll be supporting the health of your cells, and thus increasing your body’s overall energy capabilities while decreasing acidity and inflammation. The result: A younger, healthier (and we bet, happier) you with a metabolic system that hums.

Thank you for your support over the years, and thank you for letting me be part of your journey to your optimal health, physique, and performance not only at the gym, but in life.
