Coach Rahz here with some great answers to diet solutions from Coach John A.K.A. The Chemist. John has some great information that will save you from destroying your body and not getting the fat loss results you want for the summer.
We aren’t doomed unless we can bring back the basics
Its John over here at The Meta Burn Fat Loss Studio and I just want to take a second to break down some of the diet problems many of you have been facing and see if we can bring simplicity back (simplicity has brought successful fat loss results to our clients). Two of our biggest problems are Time and What to eat. Now I can’t make more time in the day, but I can make it easier for you to utilize the time you do have. Let’s take it back to the caveman day’s by Chris Colucci. Here we are going to break it down to three easy steps.
1) If it’s a green vegetable, you can eat it.
2) If it had a face, or would’ve grown up to have a face, you can eat it.
3) If it’s not green and didn’t have a face, don’t eat it.
Although elimination diets allow the digestive and immune systems a chance to recover from constantly attempting to process foods that it may not actually be designed to process, they often have the “accidental” effect of weight loss and reduced bodyfat. However, most people don’t realize they are burning through muscle as well which slows your metabolism. Slow Metabolism = Disaster when looking to tone up, lose fat, and shape up for the Summer!
The ins and the outs Fruit juices are, from a macronutrient standpoint, no different than regular soda, so those are definitely out of the fridge. While you’re at it, toss the milk, too. We want to eat stuff that was an animal, not something that’s squeezed out of one. You can have one or two pieces of whole fruit with breakfast and one or two pieces with the first meal that immediately follows your weight training session.
However, like with all sets of rules, there is an exception… your peri-workout plan, or what you’ll be eating/drinking while you train. For this we offer great products through Pro/grade or other recommendations based on the individual.
Chris sums it up best, If you’ve ever failed on a fat loss diet before, you might also be aware of the sneaky little snowball of compromise. “It’s just a low-carb wrap, but it’s fine because it’s high fiber,” turns into, “It’s just some milk and sugar in my coffee, but it’s fine because I only drink it at work,” which turns into, “It’s one jelly donut, but it’s fine because I’m still sore from yesterday’s heavy leg training and can put the calories to use.”
Let’s bring back the simplicity of Fat Loss and stop following the shiny objects of all these new diets.
Dedicated to your results,
