Mistake 3 – Starving The Body Most Of The Day Will Burn Tons Of Body Fat
I see this more often than not. People get excited to start a new workout plan and know that they have to change their food up as well to lose fat. So the common school of thought is, eat less and burn more. Yes, there can be a right way to do this, but I will go into that later in this post. Let me explain the WRONG way that most people fall into.
I will use my client Jim as an example and so you know, Jim is not his real name so we can protect his privacy
Jim came to me after about a month of working out and dieting on his own. He was feeling run down, tired and after a few weeks of the scale dropping slightly his “RESULTS” have stopped. Jim was actually sabotaging his results!
Let me explain. I asked Jim what a normal day of eating was like for him and here was his response, “I wake up in the morning and I am not hungry at all so I have some coffee, then around 1-2 in the afternoon I have a small salad or I just skip lunch if I’m busy. For dinner I have another salad or some fish and greens.”
I then ask Jim how long he lasts on eating like this and here is his answer, “Ryan, to be honest, I break! I feel horrible and then I eat everything I can get my hands on.”
Jim goes through this cycle every 3-4 days or so until he gives up on changing his eating all together, usually at the 4 week mark. Jim has tried this multiple times in his life and always gets the same outcome. He feels worse and gains everything back he lost and sometimes more.
Sound familiar at all? Jim’s case might be a little extreme, but almost every one of my clients has experienced something similar to this.
There is a better Way!
Here is a simple checklist we use at FLEX to accelerate RESULTS:
Pretty simple right!
The whole goal is to increase your muscle mass to burn more body fat. The above checklist ensures you are losing fat and not muscle as Jim was experiencing and you will finally experience LONG TERM LASTING RESULTS!
That was your crash course on nutrition for results.
Eat Your Protein!
Eat Your Beans!
Eat Your Greens!
And Eat Throughout The Day!
Eat Until Satisfied!
Keep it simple and GET RESULTS
P.S. It took Jim 9 months, but he finally hit his weight loss goal of 100lbs lost. Chances are you don’t have this much to lose, so stick with it and eat smart
