Step 1: Eat Above Maintenance For 2 Weeks Minimum*
Check and see what your maintenance calories are (the number i emailed back to you).
Eat at or above your maintenance calories to give your body the signal that the famine has ended.
Good times are here and they’re here to stay.
Make sure you eat early and don’t skip meals.
Don’t let yourself feel hungry ever during the 2 weeks.
*It’s not a free for all junk fest . Eat a wide variety of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as meat. Try to steer clear of addictive or over processed foods. The additives in them can mess with your metabolism dramatically. So stick to eating a healthy balanced diet, and making sure you eat a lot of it.
You WILL gain weight. But that’s not because this process isn’t working, its because the diets you’ve been doing have broken your metabolism. Your body needs to regenerate organ tissue, blood, hair, brain matter and all the other things it’s been putting off for so long. The weight gain won’t be only fat, it will be necessary weight.
Spend these 3 weeks getting it back and you’ll be set to lose fat on more calories than you can currently stomach.
Step 2: Eat Just Below Maintenance For A Week
For the third week, drop calories below maintenance, but no more than say a 500 calorie per day deficit, otherwise you risk undoing your good work.
It’s actually really healthy to eat just a bit less than maintenance.
Step 3: Carb Cycle
I’m sure you’ve heard folk talk about carb cycling. Carb cycling done right will prevent the down regulation of your metabolism, and in most cases, force up regulation – you can eat more and still lose fat.
There are two ways you can do this.
Two ways to carb cycle:
Fixed diet plan
2 days low carb, 1 day high carb or 3 days low carb, 1 day high carb
Low carb until you hit ketosis (See ketones, then have a carb load (refeed) meal.
The first way is a fixed diet plan – 2 days low carb/low cal and 1 day high carb/high cal. Or something like this. I’m not a great fan of “one size fits all” dieting, so I honestly prefer a tailored approach, specific to you. I can take all of the guesswork out of it for you with a personalised Nutrition Plan … READ MORE HERE >>>>
I was having a conversation yesterday with one of the girls about kindness and manners and it really struck home how little thought people actually give to kindness or basic manners.
I’ll let you into a wee secret , when my hubby and I went on our first dinner date – he pulled the chair out for me. … I was sold!!!
NOBODY had ever done that before lol
So today it’s the little things like holding the door open – and before you say it holding the door open for someone not just something they do in old movies
Polite, Thoughtful and Mindful is the theme for today
How you treat others can also say a lot about you as a person.
If actions really do speak louder than words, what are you telling others about yourself?
What kind of person are YOU ??
