    A few slides, maybe just one with the outline and spelling of the big words (English isn’t English) would be helpful.

    Nutrition and sleep are both important to me. I would like more guidance on what to eat on agility days. I often find I do not want to eat during the majority of the day. I drink an avocado, spinach, and hemp power smootee around 5:30am and the do not eat again until 3 to 5pm. I do drink coconut water and flat water throughout the day.

    Thanks Kert for that great talk…..other than agility, nutrition is a huge passion of mine and I have studied it for years, so I appreciate everything that you have shared! And of course it goes without saying that solid nutrition has a huge impact on the quality of our sleep so that dovetails nicely with your previous presentation!

    Thank you so much for this program! This info really helps. Question on calories. Is there a reliable website or formula for figuring out our maintenance daily calories so we can better determine our calorie deficit? I have googled for info many times and seem to get a variety of answers depending on the website. Just don’t know what is right.

      From Kert:

      Essentially all the formulas are “educated guesses”. As every human is different, in the way their body and metabolism runs. So a formula that is dead on point for one person, might be a fair way off for someone else. The way to find your calorie maintenance is to use a formula to give you your maintenance. Weigh yourself, take photos, and measure yourself at the start of a week. Each day, track your calories and try to stay to maintenance target each day. Then at the end of the week, re measure yourself and see how the calorie target has effected you. If you’ve lost weight, the “maintenance” was too low for you. If you’ve gained weight, the “maintenance” was actually a surplus for you. And if you have stayed exactly the same, then the formula was right and it was your maintenance 🙂.

      Measure, track, remeasure then adjust as needed.

      The formula I use for maintenance is :

      13 X bodyweight in lbs on non training days
      14 X bodyweight in lbs on training days

      (Dog agility doesn’t count as a training day)

      14 X bw on non training
      15 X bw on training

    I love this fitness section. As a woman slightly on the other side of young, out of shape and still recovering from a total knee replacement surgery- Kert has me so energized and looking forward to getting healthy. The explanations are exactly what I needed to make good decisions for myself. Wish I would have signed up for this years ago. Thank you!!

      Take your time and progress gradually! Strengthening the muscles and equalizing strength between left and right will ultimately be very beneficial to you. Glad you’re enjoying the videos, I’ll pass this on to Kert.
