New Oxygen is on stands!

Here’s the Covergirl Insider on Amber Elizabeth:

“Three days a week I do a circuit in the gym, mixing plyometrics, mile intervals and various strength-building exercises like squat thrusts. I also do yoga twice a week, a pool workout once, and I get outside for a hike or run twice a week.”

AMBER ELIZABETH’S
MEAL PLAN:

Breakfast: Poached eggs (two whites, one yolk), whole-wheat toast and a grapefruit, or an egg-white breakfast burrito on an Ezekiel wrap.

Snack: A mango or a banana with almond butter.

Lunch: Arugula salad with veggies and goat cheese.

Snack: Almonds

Dinner: A stir-fry with mushrooms, asparagus and chicken with wild brown rice, or turkey burgers on a whole-wheat bun with a side salad or broccoli.

Oxygen July 2010

It’s out!

Covergirl Erin Stern:

A typical workout includes “I train five to six days per week,” Erin says. “Usually a combined bodybuilding-style weight workout four times per week, functional powerlifting once or twice, and sprints and plyo on the track.”

Of all the exercises she does, her top training moves right now are reverse hyperextensions, weighted bridges and single-leg squats. “Gotta work those glutes!”

Eat Clean Diet Tips

From the Eat Clean Diet newsletter – sign up here!

“I find late-night cravings normally come from boredom and not hunger.
I stay busy in the evenings and they pass without a pig out.”

– Wendy_morley

“I have found that [cravings] are rarely hunger related for me and that they will pass. So I distract myself. I take a bath with a great Oxygen mag and I brush my teeth. Nothing tastes very good after that, and I would hate to do it again!”
– Heidi

“I go to bed!”
– Tatttt2

“With 5 meals a day and 100 plus oz of water, it’s usually not an issue. However, when and if this problem arises, my answer is: ?water water water! I know that if my mind is saying ‘snack,’ it really means, ‘H20.'”
– Italynette

“I brush and floss my teeth, and then use mouthwash to lose any tastes that linger and this helps me lose cravings.”
– Idsmom33

“I just had a piece of gum – it helps when I have the late night munchies … something to chew on!”
– Cogmom

“I fix a nice steaming cup of decaf hot tea and sip it as I relax on the couch. It is calming and comforting.”
– Odessa

Of course, as Eat-Clean Diet® Community members Toodlepip and Jolamar pointed out, if we are truly hungry we shouldn’t deny ourselves. To satiate your evening hunger, try having one of the following small meal options:

“One dried organic fig will do the trick for me.”
– All4cate

“If I get the urge, I’ll try to stick to fruits and nuts.”
– Tanyaprud_homme

“Sometimes just a few spoons of yogurt/cottage cheese will do the trick.”
– Toodlepip

Walking to Lose Weight?

From EverydayHealth.com:

Q: My doctor told me that I need to get more aerobic exercise, but I hate going to the gym! I do like to walk, but how fast and how long should I go to improve my cardiovascular health?

A:  I understand exactly what you mean about going to the gym; I’m not a big fan of it either. Personally, I prefer to exercise outdoors or at home. And like you, I really enjoy walking.Recently, I’ve begun recommending what’s known as interval walking to many of my patients. With interval walking, you alternate between short bursts of intensive effort and easier recovery periods, as opposed to walking at a steady, continuous, and potentially monotonous pace. In fact, studies show that you can get better results in 20 minutes of interval exercise than you would in an hour of steady-state exercise….Read the rest of the answer click here.

Marinated artichokes are a great convenience product because they provide concentrated flavor and a delicious liquid, which can also be used to flavor a dish.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

Serves 4

Ingredients
1 1/2 pounds cod fillet
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon dried basil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
10 ounces marinated artichoke hearts (about 12 pieces), plus 1 tablespoon liquid from jar

Instructions
Heat oven to 450°F.

Place cod in an ovenproof baking dish, brush with oil, sprinkle with basil, and season with salt and pepper. Arrange artichoke hearts around fish and drizzle with artichoke liquid.
