Want Faster Results? Try These 3 Food Tricks
Working out hard is an essential part of any fat loss plan. It sculpts your muscles, raises your resting metabolism, whittles down your waist and gives you functional strength and endurance.

The only catch is that you can seriously slow, or even reverse, your results by eating poorly. There's nothing quite as frustrating as when you are working out like a champ only to face the same belly rolls each morning.

To keep you from giving up in frustration, I've put together the following 3 Easy Food Tricks to amp up your results.

Why am I calling these tricks? A trick usually implies that someone is getting fooled, and, well, in this scenario you're that someone. These tricks will fool your taste-buds and your mouth into thinking that you're eating your regular favorites, when, in fact, you'll actually be eating a meal with fewer calories, fewer carbs and more fiber.

This means quicker fat loss and smaller belly rolls.

That sounds fantastic, right? So let's dig right in...

Easy Food Trick #1: RICE
Rice is a big part of many a meal. There's white rice, brown rice, stir fried rice, sticky rice, wild rice and the list goes on. All of these kinds of rice (yes, even brown rice) are packed with carb and calories. This is great, if you are a growing child or an athlete, but not so great for someone like you with a fat loss goal.

Rather than give up rice completely, because that would make your healthy meal look really lonely on a half-empty plate, let's turn to Easy Food Trick #1.

CAULIFLOWER RICE: Now, don't get skeptical on me until you give this food trick a try. To make rice from cauliflower first wash it and trim the leaves and stems. Chop into small pieces and then run those pieces through a food processor with the grating attachment. This will result in a rice-like consistency. Place the cauliflower rice in a large skillet with some water and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and you are good to go. Serve your normal dishes over a bed of cauliflower rice just as you would traditional rice.

Easy Food Trick #2: NOODLES
Have you ever noticed that when you crave your favorite pasta dish, you're actually just craving the sauce? Noodles alone are bland and unspectacular. The magic is in the sauce.

Noodles, like traditional rice, are packed with calories and carbs that get in the way of your fat loss results. So, rather than just eating a bowl of sauce, try Easy Food Trick #2.

ZUCCHINI NOODLES: Again, try this trick before you knock it, I'm guessing that you'll be pleasantly surprised. Wash a zucchini, and then run a vegetable peeler down its sides, creating long, wide noodles. Stop when you reach the inner, seedy part of the zucchini. These raw, zucchini noodles do not require any cooking, simply use that instead of your regular pasta.

Easy Food Trick #3: BREAD, BUNS, TORTILLAS
Cauliflower rice and zucchini noodles are all find and dandy for those meals that you prepare at home, but what about your meals eaten out? Many restaurant meals revolve around bread, buns or tortillas. These things are tasty, yet filled with calories and carbs that add to those annoying belly rolls.

That's when you turn to Easy Food Trick #3.

THE LETTUCE WRAP: This trick is more popular than the first two, so you may already be familiar with it. How does it work? When ordering your meal, ask that it be wrapped in lettuce in place of the bread, bun or tortilla. Most places are really cool about it, and you end up getting to eat the good part of the meal without the carb-filled extras. If for some reason the restaurant is unable to wrap it in lettuce for you, then ask for the filling to be placed on a pile of greens and eat it with a fork.

Try these 3 Easy Food Tricks out for the next 30 days, and see how quickly your fat loss results ramp up. The improved results will motivate you to workout harder and more consistently, which will then add to an even greater level of fitness.

If you aren't yet one of my clients, now is the perfect time for you to start. My focus is to get you to your goals using my results-driven method.

Following a protocol that typically lasts 30 to 45 minutes, the practitioner uses finger pressure and traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create fulcrums, or points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize.  Zero Balancing can help relieve body aches and pain, release restrictions in movement, and provide lasting relief from emotional distress to improve overall quality of life.

I’m from Ellicott City and I was looking for a workout that would really challenge me. I looked up Stephanie’s website online and I saw some testimonies were too hard to believe, the results were phenomenal so I took Stephanie up for a free day of boot camp. When I came, I interviewed everyone that I could get in front of and everyone had the same thing to say: they love coming, they feel good, they’ve had results, I said OK, I will buy into this. I started with a 4 month membership. I love it, I have so much fun, I’m looking forward to my workouts. I’ve made some really great friends. If you’re thinking about joining The Boot Camp Girl, please do, we are having a ball at the Clarksville boot camp!

I’ve been with The Boot Camp Girl for about a year in the Clarksville boot camp. My initial goal was to lose 20 pounds. Once I lost 10 lbs I thought that was as far as I could go, but we had so much fun in boot camp. We kept going and I met my goal of 20lbs down and I feel so much different. It’s such a great feeling to pull out all of your Winter clothes and have them be too big and have to go shopping. I have people that stop me all of the time and say “You Look Great!”. I feel like I look how i should look where before I felt too big for myself. I’m back to where I feel like I should be. I feel great!
-Jennifer R.

I’ve been coming to the Clarksville boot camp for a year now and in that time frame I’ve lost 26 pounds. I’ve decreased my 1 mile time from 8 minutes to 6 1/2 minutes and I’ve run two 5K’s my best time being 22:21. I’m having a blast at boot camp, staying challenged every week, being competitive with other participants in boot camp and having a great time. Every workout I come to I feel charged up and my strength is up. Having a blast. I highly recommend The Boot Camp Girl!
- TJ D.

I am from Columbia and I joined The Boot Camp Girl program because I was looking for a program that had everything that I need that I could just follow the program and I would just achieve my fitness and my health goals (I attend the Columbia boot camp and the Clarksville boot camp). I wanted something that had a support system through the program, with the instructors and the students. I have actually been able to achieve all of my fitness goals, I’ve lost over 20 pounds and I’ve lost almost 14 inches. I love coming to boot camp, I love the friendships that I’ve made, and I love the support system that’s here. It’s not just the exercise, but there are tools and resources to help you with the food so you could be successful there. So if you’re looking for a program that will help you to make radical and immediate changes in your overall fitness and health goals, The Boot Camp Girl is for you!
