Should women track calories, macronutrients, points or … [fill in the blank]?

Should women track calories, macronutrients, points or … [fill in the blank]?

POSTED BY: Jenn Hockaday on July 8, 2017, 1:15 p.m. Almost daily, we see a news story (or a blog or Facebook post) with someone singing the praises of a food-tracking tool or program. But news hype aside, what should you track? Is it calories (because calories do count, of course)? What about macronutrients (i.e., protein, carbs, fat, etc.)? What about counting points or units of food?   In the work I do as a trainer for Time 2 Change Fitness for Women and also outside of work, I get asked this question a lot — most often from women and...

My Whole30 experience

My Whole30 experience

POSTED BY: Teresa Yockey on May 17, 2017, 9:50 a.m. Have you ever wanted to do a nutrition-related reboot or re-set, where you re-focus on healthy eating? I did that recently when I decided to try the Whole30® program.     With Whole30, you go through a process of eliminating (and later re-adding) certain food groups in exchange for using other sources of nutrition to give your body energy. For example, many people eat a carbohydrate-heavy diet vs. feeding the body with healthy fats and protein....

Celebrating NSVs (Non-Scale Victories) at Time 2 Change

POSTED BY: Teresa Yockey on April 3, 2017, 7:22 a.m. Ever seen the #NSV hashtag on social media or heard the “non-scale victory” term? NSVs acknowledge there is more to celebrate than just numbers on a scale — they’re for recognizing other benefits for getting fit and healthy. I recently asked my members to tell me about the non-scale victories they’re experiencing at Time 2 Change Fitness for Women. I’d heard their feedback about pounds lost or body fat reduced, but I knew there was more to the story. And there...

Time 2 Change trainers’ advice for managing holiday temptations

POSTED BY: T2C News on November 30, 2016, 11:15 a.m. ‘Tis the season for festive fun … but it can also bring extra stress — too many commitments and no time to work out! — and more food than anyone should consume at one given meal. (Thirds? Heck, why not!) Our Time 2 Change Fitness for Women owner and trainers have significant experience focusing on women’s fitness and nutrition. Through the years, they’ve talked through holiday strategies with many clients (e.g., how to avoid extra calories and how to still make time...

Justin’s eight great tips for food journaling success

Justin’s eight great tips for food journaling success

POSTED BY: Justin Cantwell on September 30, 2016, 8:12 a.m. I’ve been a trainer at Time 2 Change Fitness for Women for more than five years now. One of the things I regularly get asked about is food journaling — how to do it and why it can help to write down what you eat and drink. I’m a fan of using a food journal, and it’s something I recommend both women and men consider when they’re working toward a health and fitness goal. I’ve used one off and on over the years to either lose or gain weight, depending on...

“Healthy is an outfit that looks different on everybody.”

POSTED BY: Time 2 Change News on July 11, 2016, 12:02 p.m. Kimber Ingle, one of our members, recently shared her Time 2 Change Fitness for Women story with us — and it was so great, that we thought we’d share it here on our blog. Thank you, Kimber, for your kind words … and congrats on your hard work! “Healthy is an outfit that looks different on everybody.” I have learned so much over the past two years of coming to Time 2 Change, but seeing this quote on the bulletin board sums it up! My first step through the door I...

Exercise or nutrition — what’s “best” to focus on?

Exercise or nutrition — what’s “best” to focus on?

POSTED BY: Jennifer Hockaday on June 1, 2016, 12:32 p.m. Recently I read a post from the New York Times, To Keep Obesity at Bay, Exercise May Trump Diet. It addresses a debate I’ve heard many times over the years — and it’s also a question that some of the women I train ask me. They want to know what they should focus on — getting in enough exercise or paying attention to their nutrition. For almost every fitness question I’m asked, my answer is “it depends.” And that goes for this topic, too. There are many...

Real results from Time 2 Change’s nutrition support

POSTED BY: Time 2 Change News on May 2, 2016, 9:54 a.m. We’re receiving great feedback about our monthly nutrition support service, which we’re now offering to both Time 2 Change Fitness for Women members and non-members. We asked three women who are participating to share their thoughts on how it’s working for them: I joined Time 2 Change to lose weight. I felt that lack of exercise was my only problem since I had a great diet. I expected that once I started working out, the weight would immediately fall off. I quickly...
