Hey – how was your weekend?
Yesterday was a family day for me …. and what a beautiful day it was!
Did you go out in that gorgeous weather?
Me, mum, dad, my niece and nephew all piled into the car and hit Rathmullan for a walk along the beach and then Belle’s Kitchen for a Hot Fudge Sundae … yum yum lol
have you ever heard these words (or even said them) before?
“I just don’t know what the problem is. I BARELY eat anything and I still can’t lose any weight?!”
This is a COMMON misconception when a person wants to burn fat.
They think if they eat less, they will lose more weight.
Technically, at first, that could be true.
You WILL lose ‘weight’ — but not much of it will be fat and it won’t last for long.
In fact, you can end up turning your metabolism against you if you try to diet using the conventional ways of slimming clubs (you know the ones – where you pay a fiver for somebody with no nutritional training or qualifications to give you a pat on the back for eating s***e)
Irreversible damage to your metabolism can lead to a lifetime of disappointment and never getting anywhere with any progress in your fat loss goals.
What is it that makes successful weight loss so difficult to achieve?
Well for starters, most weight loss programmes are NOT designed with high Metabolic Thermo Charged ingredients. They are not using the metabolic powers that certain foods have to make your body burn more body fat. Instead, they use ingredients with very low thermogenic effect.
Why does this matter? Because the Metabolic Thermo Charge of food stands for how many calories your body will burn just by breaking down the nutrients each time you consume a certain food.
Most people have absolutely no idea of the power some of these foods have over the fat burning processes that go on inside the body, and so they never really think twice about them. BIG MISTAKE.
For example, simply eating high-quality protein with most meals will naturally burn off more calories and move you closer to your target weight. Lean protein has a very high “Metabolic Thermo Charge”. Spices also have a strong thermogenic effect on your body. Combining certain foods together, such as chicken and turmeric, with help you burn more fat after you eat it.
It’s a bit like venturing into the food jungle without your compass!
So we’ve talked about the food and the structure of your eating plan.
Sounds like we’ve got it covered, right?
Ever followed a diet to a “T” and all of a sudden noticed that you stopped losing fat?
This is called the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon.
It occurs at that point in your diet when your body knows precisely what it’s getting in terms of food and has fully adapted to it. When it reaches this state, your metabolism slows down and fat loss screeches to a halt
In order to avoid the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon, you have to vary your nutrient intake regularly (don’t eat the same foods every day) shocking your body as time goes on.
This keeps it guessing and ensures your metabolism stays on high at all times
That’s how my 28 day Fast Metabolism Plan works
Now you know the REAL score when it comes to fat loss and dieting!
Be sure to watch out for these sneaky saboteurs next time you make the decision to lose fat!
Anyway, RAK #55 is to donate to the Million Dollar Fitness fundraising efforts for local children who suffer from life limiting illnesses.
I’ve organised a Pledge My Pounds Weight Loss Challenge with #teammilliondollar
For every pound lost in October, I’m donating £1 to our fundraising coffers
I’m thinking I’m gonna be roasted but it sure will be worth it 🙂
