Hi CoreCampers!

If anyone tells you that you can get in amazing shape without eating clean, don’t believe the hype!  Nutrition – NOT A DIET – is a huge part of your success and clean eating will not only help you see amazing results long-term, but will also make you feel amazing with more energy and clarity in your everyday life.

At Core / Conditioning Training, we do not believe in short-term diets, but rather an eating plan that equates to a Lifestyle Change which allows you to use food as fuel and rev up your metabolism so that you may enjoy food in moderation and eat to burn.

Just a reminder…As a CoreCarmper Member, you will receive a weekly Nutritional Game Plan where you can easily choose from meal options as well as have a grocery list to make your meal planning easy.

Our Weekly Meal Plans will follow our Core / Conditioning Training Nutritional Guidelines:

  • Eat 5-6 mini-meals per day, or every 2-3 hours — Eat on a consistent schedule!
  • Make breakfast the largest meal of the day, dinner the leanest
  • Consume at least 1/2 gram protein per lb. of body weight each day
  • Consume approximately 10-11 calories per lb. of body weight each day
  • Drink at least 1/2 oz. of water per lb. of body weight each day (i.e. 140 lbs = drink at least 70 oz. / water each day)
  • Earn your carbs…Carbs are intended for energy so make sure carbs coincide with physical exercise
  • Carbs limited in the evening, preferably after 4-5 p.m.
  • Allow one “Cheat Day” per week

Here are your CoreCamper Meal Options for this week:
