Time To Get Over The Hump!

Time to get over the hump. The ladies are half way through their Mission Makeover journey and at this point we take stock in their progress or lack thereof and set forth making the adjustments needed. How do you challenge yourself to be better? To achieve new goals? To go where you never thought you could? In this episode we ask the ladies to challenge not only their bodies but their brains. See if they have what it takes to pass the Firefighter Assessment test… it gets a little hot out there… it’s both a physical and mental workout.

But they can’t forget about what they are putting into their bodies and the latest fringe foods like Goji berries, hummus, granola and now sprouted grains are going mainstream… once relegated to the organic aisle…. These grains have found their way to the pasta, cereal, bread AND even snack aisles. Today the ladies whip up one of Jamie’s favorite crispy chicken recipes using sprouted grains a healthier and tasty alternative.

For our busy ladies and their bodies, staying on track and being able to enjoy their favorite meals while remaining true to their diet is important. They have been enjoying fresh, healthy meals delivered right to their doors but what happens when cravings hit? The ladies share with us some of their favorite Fresh Diet meals and learn what to reach for to curb those cravings.

Halfway There in Episode 7 ‘Getting Over the Hump’ on Mission Makeover® on Lifetime

Sparks Fly with Fire Station Challenge; Fiber Talk and Fresh Food Delivered to the Door Featured on Monday, March 23 Show on Lifetime with Co-Hosts Jamie Eason and Julie Moran

(POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – PR LOG – March 20, 2015) – Fire Fighter Boot Camp, Flaked Grains and Fresh Food at the Front Door play a part at the halfway mark of the 13-week journey for the Mission Makeover ladies’ journey. Tune in to see what’s in store for the Core Four on the award-winning series Mission Makeover® in Episode 7 on Monday, March 23, 2015 at 7:30 am (ET/PT). The encore presentation will air on Tuesday, March 24 at 7:30 a.m. (ET/PT).

With only seven more weeks in the competition, it’s time to take stock of their progress. Co-host Jamie Eason reminds the team of the importance of challenging not only their bodies but their minds, and brings them to Fire Fighter Boot Camp in Coral Springs, Florida where the ladies will go through the same training as fire fighters do.

Sparks fly during as the competition heats up with hose pulls and dummy drags, after jump squats get the ladies more than warmed up. Whose limits are tested and who passes the Firefighter Assessment test like a pro?

To help them on their journey, the team will learn about two nutritious ways to make losing weight delicious and convenient!

  • Nutrition Sprouting All Over! Hummus, granola, and Goji berries….these were once considered alternative foods but have since gone mainstream, just like Sprouted grains. Are there secrets to “Getting over the Hump” while still enjoying their favorite meals? By substituting sprouted flours/grains for their everyday flours/grains it just may be that special something that helps the ladies get one step closer to success. Sarah den Hoed from Bio-Kinetics Corporation returns to share the benefits of sprouted grains in combating heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Imagine eating your favorite baked goods such as pancakes, cookies or breads made with flour that digests more like vegetables than starches, keeping you fuller and more satisfied. Jamie cooks up some delicious oven baked fried chicken tenders using sprouted brown rice. For recipes and information, go to: http://www.bio-kinetics.com/collections/living-flours
  • Delivered Right to the Door! Many people spend a lot of money on dining out without knowing the nutritional value of what they are eating. A meal delivery program, such as The Fresh Diet offers innovative gourmet meals using the freshest, all-natural ingredients that compare to the cost of dining out without sacrificing nutritional value. Nutritionist Meryl Brandwein and Jamie Eason sit down with the ladies to discuss each one’s favorite meals that are delivered right to their front doors, plus talk about the Fresh Diet Cookbook. The Fresh Diet meals are chef-prepared, nutritionally balanced and never frozen, freeze-dried or vacuum packed. With four meal plans to choose from, a gourmet variety of over 150 dishes and a Nutritionist and health specialist on staff to answer questions, it’s a great option for the ladies. http://www.thefreshdiet.com/
