Would Truvia or Stevia be allowed for sweetening tea or coffee during the Ignite phase of the nutrition plan?
I noticed in the announcement that the Beautiful Belly program would have postnatal yoga workout. Yet when I looked at the videos I didn't see any. Are those going to come out later? (My wife just had our first child so I was hoping that she could do the postnatal routines.)
There is brown-rice pasta noodles available at health food stores. They would be allowed under the Ignite diet. Just remember to limit how much starchy carbs you have.
I lost 8 lbs over the 21 days. I was hoping for 10...but after the first 5 the speed of weight loss dropped.
As far as I know it is. If you search the questions for Truvia there is a general acceptance of it. I used Truvia during my Ignite phase and suffered no ill effects. Even had a blood test done at the end and nothing showed up...in fact everything was way better than before. :)
You'll want to go lighter on kettle-bells versus free-weights given the physics of the center of mass versus the handle. Generally (for men ) a 35-50 lbs kettleful is good for leg driven exercises while a 15-25 lbs is good for upper-body.
You could look up some Paleo breakfast recipes for ideas. As that diet should not have any of the "evil 6" in it (if you avoid soy). My wife actually made Paleo bread for me just to take a break from the shakes during my Ignite phase. (8 pounds lost and only 3 days to go!)
I second KateHough on this, though some oppose Stevia claiming it has negative effects. Personally, I think Stevia is great!
I believe it is acceptable as it is natural. Though you will find many people divided over this issue as some claim that you body will react to Stevia like artificial sweeteners.
It is still dairy (First two listed ingredients are milk)...so if you are going by the Ignite plan then it wouldn't be allowed.
Are you following the Ignite nutrition plan?
You can totally have eggs for breakfast. They aren't listed in the "Evil 6."
Yes! On Tim Ferris website, he talks about the "slow-carb" diet which has some similarities to the Ignite nutrition plan. Though they are some difference (for example he allows soy sauce but doesn't allow brown rice, quinoa, or sweet potatoes). Anyway, he discuss how he travels/eat around the world and is always able to eat per his plan. The article is here:
The key is getting meat/veggie/beans then making sure the "Evil 6" isn't tainting any of the three. Good luck!
You'll have to judge your own willpower/habit/preference/fitness level. If it takes most of your willpower to stick to Ignite; then I would pick a workout program that I know I could stick with. If you are already in great shape and just want to shed a few pounds then Ignite plus Inferno would be awesome. But if you are like me (average physical fitness level) then it can be hard pulling together the willpower to do a super-hard workout after resisting temptation all day. (Unless you workout early in the morning.) After fighting cravings/temptations all day you may be tempted (like me) to just skip the workout as you could tell yourself that you did "good enough" by sticking to the nutrition plan. I had to switch to shorter workouts to keep from skipping...and some days I just had to take a walk outside.
That was a longish answer, but I hope that frames your workout choice in the right light. Good luck with your fitness/health goals!
I actually mix up the programs a little. I'm going with Total Body Tactical...but I mix in some Yoga on the recovery days that require equipment I don't have.
