And a nutrient dense diet means you will have everything you need to perform at your peak every day. And sometimes they will be foods that are widely considered unhealthy. A flexible dieting plan like this is the only one that will work long term and allow you to stick with it for life. Most diets you see in magazines or on the internet do just the opposite. They require you to cut out all carbohydrates and calories which just gives you cravings and brain fog.
And, you have zero energy for workouts, with the sex drive of a 89 year old man. Sure, you might lose a ton of weight in those first couple months. Instead of going with an extreme approach, you need to find a diet that you can stick to. And the diet you can stick to is one that gives you enough calories to maintain focus, and motivation.
Day in and day out. From there, the real magic is in the adjustments you make. This is where having a coach comes in handy. The old days of following a pro bodybuilder 6-meal per day style diet are long gone. How much protein, fat and carbs you eat at the end of each day are what really matter. Eating small meals is a royal pain in the ass, highly inconvenient and very unsatisfying. Picking like a bird every few hours is no fun. I prefer to have my biggest main meal at dinner.
Then on a training day I will have another big meal after my workout. In addition to that I will have snacks, which is usually just a protein shake mixed in some green juice or something along those lines. On off days I might have a protein shake during morning hours a small sized lunch and a huge dinner. Eating more often is not only an inconvenience but it can also negatively affect digestion and testosterone levels. Everyone and their mother jumps on the low carb bandwagon when trying to lose bodyfat.
Yeah, it works at first. You drop water weight and fat rather quickly. But, after the initial, rapid fat loss, everything comes to a screeching halt. Plus, you get exhausted as soon as you start doing high intensity conditioning. Cutting carbs is both unnecessary and counterproductive for your physique goals. Carbs are an essential component to a good muscle building diet that simultaneously burns fat. The key is timing them properly and balancing them out with your protein and fats.
There are two primary times of the day to have carbohydrates: They are the single best fuel for that type of exercise. And you will always feel, look, and perform better by keeping some in your diet.
So, in the meal you eat minutes before your workout have grams of carbs from one of the following: This could be a protein shake in some cherry juice or a small can of tuna with some instant rice. The other time of the day to have a large portion of your carbs is at dinner. This works best from a social perspective because it gives you flexibility to enjoy a satisfying meal to close off the day. Plus, having some starchy carbs at night will help you sleep better.
And better sleep means easier fat loss, better workouts, and higher testosterone. For most people, this ends up being fist sized portions of starchy carbs. This can be rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, quinoa, or something else. See the shopping list below for healthy carb options. Some will say that eating meat will catapult you into obesity. Much of that hype is over blown propaganda that makes you fear food and think you need a panel of medical tests to find out what foods to eat.
The whole purpose of eating well is to feel fucking awesome. For example, my nose gets stuffed up when I eat dairy. And it runs when I eat too many eggs. Sugar gives me a headache and hangover feeling. Eat those foods often. I got suckered into the anti-fruit movement for a while but I found that with myself and my clients, it made no difference. And almost everyone always feels better when eating fruit.
So I added it back into all my diets and the results were better. I recommend servings per day if you want to stay healthy. You should include healthy saturated fat in your diet. Almost every physique athlete in history has followed a moderate fat diet. Low carb, high fat diets are for sedentary individuals.
NOT for hard training guys who want to build muscle and get strong. You should always eat based on your activity levels. There are 3 main macronutrients- protein, carbs, and fat. Each one plays a specific role in providing energy and fuel for activity. No Reneagde Workouts, no hill sprints, no high intensity conditioning. Low carb, high fat, moderate protein will be the healthiest diet for him.
Those are a consistent part of your week, which means your main energy fuel needs to be carbs. Believe me, I wish it were that easy. All that does happen is we pee more, stress our internal organs, get fat, smelly, gassy, and inflamed. And we waste money.
Do yourself a favor and save the cash. Take it from someone who pissed a ton of it away on super high protein diets. None of it did any good. Also, drink a cup of bone broth each day. Should I skip breakfast?
