Portland Fitness Food Tip: Drinking Wine this Weekend!

If you are going to that wine festival in Newport, make sure that you don't crazy with both the wine and the food. If you are on a strict food plan or following one for a fitness program, then make sure your fat intake for the day is at a minimal, since alcohol pretty much has the same caloric expenditure rate as fat (9 calories to burn 1 gram of fat). I know it can be very tempting, especially when you have alcohol in your system, but when you have a plan, then you will be more willing to stick with it. I want you to enjoy the wine if you are going to the festival, but I also don't want you to be so hungover and bloated from all that salty, cheesy, fat loaded food that it could set you back a few days.Being fit also means that you need to enjoy life and if you are being  to strict to a food program, then that is not very enjoyable. Have fun, eat some good foods to reward yourself for a job well-done, but just don't overdo it because that can trigger a spiraling effect where it can last for days or weeks, just like when you are on a cruise.Thanks,Kisar DhillonPersonal Trainer PortlandThe Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington Street, Suite 137Portland, Oregon 97214(503) 953-0241
