I’ve said it countless times, I would never be a trainer if it wasn’t from my parents. And I mean that in the literal sense. They didn’t push me to become a trainer, in fact they were supporting my decision to pursue engineering or architecture when I was in high school, but it’s hard to fall far from the tree if the tree is a power couple of a strength and conditioning coach and a nutritionist. I’ll post more about my dad (aptly named, “Hercules”) later but for now, the star of the show will be my mom, Luchie Callanta, MSN, RND.
I asked my mom to choose between two food items. Being part of this current generation, we are bombarded with tons of food choices and most of them, unfortunately are not healthy. If you look at the food today and compare it to what our parents ate just a few decades ago, it’s surprising how much MORE we are eating now. But we are here now and there’s really no turning back this food revolution. SO if you are in a bind and you had to choose between a burger and a hotdog, what would you choose? There are the questions that my mom answered below.
