Shaun T, the man behind the hit 60 day Insanity workout program will be on the Doctor Oz show today. I’ll be tuning in and will update this post with a breakdown of Shaun T’s appearance on the show.
I finally found time to watch Shaun T’s appearance on the Dr. Oz show and I thought it was very good. Shaun T was introduced and given credit for getting thousands people in shape with his hit workout DVDs. Shaun T went on to say that he does not believe in diets, they simply don’t work. If you go on a diet, you’ll eventually go off the diet and it is inevitable that you’ll gain the weight that you lost back. Instead of a diet, if you really want to lose weight, you need to make a lifestyle change and commit to it on a daily basis, everyday, for the rest of your life. That may sound a little extreme, but once you create these healthy habits for yourself, they are easy to stick to.
On the show, Shaun T gave some tips on how to eat healthy and below is what he recommends to eat for your 3 daily meals:
- 40% Carbs
- 30% Protein
- 30% Fat
- 25% Carbs
- 45% Protein
- 30% Fat
- 15% Carbs
- 55% Protein
- 30% Fat
As you can see from the recommended percentages above, fat stays the same for every meal. The concept behind this recommendation is to taper off your carb consumption throughout the day.
Shaun T also recommended that whenever possible, do not eat anything that can be on your shelf for more than week. For example, eating fresh fruit is much better than eating a fruit in the packaged cups that usually have a shelf life of at least 6 months. The fruit cups are filled with sugar a preservatives that aren’t good for your body.
Shaun T referred to sweet potatoes as a “miracle food” and said they should be consumed every day. They are filled with things that are great for the body. If you want to proof, just look at Shaun T, he says he eats them everyday.
Shaun T then went on to demonstrate some moves from his Insanity workout. As usual, Dr. Oz was a good sport and participated in the exercises and also a girl from the crowd also participated…in heels.
