Reading Nutrition Labels

There are many ways to “live healthy” and most of us know daily exercise is #1. Another motivating factor in living healthy is good nutrition. You can improve your overall nutrition by simply modifying your shopping habits. Reading nutrition labels, and making smarter choices, may contribute to your overall well being. If you’ve never paid much attention to food labels, you’re encouraged to start in 2024. The FDA requires nutrition content on all food labels. Let’s start by looking at the sugar content in the food you purchase at the supermarket. To keep all of this in perspective, it’s helpful to remember the American Heart Association’s recommendations for sugar intake. Men should consume no more than 9 teaspoons (36 grams or 150 calories) of added sugar per day. For women, the number is lower: 6 teaspoons (25 grams or 100 calories) per day. A simple example is to check the sugar content on then label of your favorite after-workout drink. A simple change to a drink with less or no sugar can make a world of difference. Also consider that sugar in fruit is not a cause of concern for most people, considering that it’s high in fiber and nutrients. But fruit sugar in the form of sweeteners can become problematic if you consume too much of it in processed foods. Aim to eat 2 cups of fruit per day, along with vegetables, lean protein, and healthy fat. By reading nutrition labels, and making a small change to your shopping behavior, you can make big health gains.

Pilates Reformer Client Success Story

Ana has attended Group Reformer classes at Zero Gravity Fitness for several months. She attends classes up to 3 times per week, her consistency has helped her quickly come up to speed on Pilates technique and she has mastered intermediate. Pilates moves like Long Spine on the Reformer.
Ana is pictured here demonstrating Long Spine.

“Doing Pilates at Zero Gravity Fitness has been amazing! The small class sizes are just what I needed as a beginner doing Pilates when I first started my fitness journey. The instructors take the time to help every client during the class and they are very specific with cues to be sure we use proper alignment. 

One of my goals was to become stronger and I achieved that in Pilates and in my everyday life. I am so thankful to feel better and stronger. I have also come to love working out and doing Pilates multiple times a week. I mostly attend Pilates with Andrea and she has been incredible and an important part of my fitness and Pilates journey.
