Tips for 2004
people who talk with Juliet ask how to lose weight and how to
have such defined muscles. However, that kind of performance
and discipline requires someone who is passionate about exercise
and winning. We don’t know a lot of people who perceive
exercise…intense exercise, as entertainment. But that’s
how Juliet feels about fitness. Unless you are a high performance
athlete you may be setting yourself up for failure by trying
to follow Juliet’s course. Juliet’s physique and
performance is a combination of intense
physical training, for
the past 22 years and a very discipline pre-competition diet. (click

During maintenance season, Juliet has a tendency to eat low carbohydrate
and high protein. She also eats smaller meals five times a day.
Two weeks before competition she eats no sugar or processed food.
Juliet says,” The emphasis on nutrition cannot be over
looked. High performance athletics requires high performance
eating. You must first determine what your needs are, then what
your goals are. My needs revolve around having enough energy
to facilitate tough workouts and a physically demanding job,
but not so much as to impair fat loss. My goals on the other
hand are geared towards being able to complete the combat challenge
in less than 2 minutes. This goal requires speed, strength, endurance,
and task skill. All of these characteristics require high-energy
training, meticulous nutrition along with adequate rest and recovery.”
If we really had to say what diet plans we follow we would have
to say it is a combination of Atkins and Weight Watchers and maybe
that amounts to the South Beach Diet. Neither one of us do well
with restrictions or giving up certain things forever, so we make
sure we make a place for pizza, hamburgers and French fries, chocolate
chip ice cream and other treats.
We treat these items as special
occasion items to be rarely indulged.
Weight management is a very simple process: calories in versus
calories out. If you don’t burn them, then you are going
to store them and so you have some choices. Eat less or burn more.
Where weight management is concerned, we think it is important
to do something you can maintain. Find something that works for
you. Make gradual lifestyle changes rather than going from fad
diet to fad diet.
We believe in eating everything, not necessarily everyday, but
complete nutrition requires eating a wide variety of foods. We
just try to make it clean, meaning low in fat, salt and sugar,
