My Nutrition Upgrade

          Ultimate Bootcamp is definitely the most hardcore workout I've ever tried! If you follow my fitness and lifestyle blog you know just how tough!

          When I heard the founders of Ultimate Bootcamp had started a new online nutrition program, which can be done on its own or in combination with a bootcamp package, I had to check it out!

           My Nutrition Upgrade is a customizable online nutrition program with three different
tracks depending on your health and fitness goals:
  • Go Getter: You’re happy at your current weight but want to take your performance and fitness to the next level.
  • Feeling Fit: You’ve got 10-15 pounds to lose and are looking to transform body composition.
  • Shape Shifter: You’re looking for a big lifestyle transformation and big changes, with 15 or more pounds to lose.
          I chose the Shape Shifter track, with the goal of finding tips to make dining out a little bit healthier, and come up with a healthy meal plan for the times I actually do cook for myself.

          The program is four weeks long, and just before getting started you'll receive a welcome packet outlining the total number of calories you should be consuming each day, along with the percentage of protein, carbohydrates, and fats. The welcome packet also explains basic food groups, and how many portions of each you should incorporate in each of your daily meals to meat your caloric goals.

          Once the program begins, Registered Dietitian Kerri Hawkins emails tips and challenges twice a week with suggested recipes to help meet your goals. She is also available throughout the week to answer questions in the Google groups forum, and when I asked a couple of questions she responded pretty quickly.

          One of the things I love about this program are the meal ideas, and in addition to using Kerri's email suggestions, I've found quite a few on her pinterest board I can't wait to try. My favorite so far was this Parmesan Chicken Bake. It was delicious and only about 250 calories per serving.

          I've found that with any online program or class, a large part of what you get out of it is what you put in. If you're ready to put the work in, My Nutrition Upgrade and Kerri definitely have a lot of great material and give you the information you need to be successful! I didn't give it my all the first week, but the second week I really tried to follow all of Kerri's recommendations and I'm already down a couple of pounds!
