Like to get your exercise over and done with before your body wakes up and realizes what you are doing? Hey been there. But according to Javier Gonzalez Ph. D. you don't need to eat beforehand.
People who skipped breakfast and trained in the morning burned 20% more body fat than when they preceded their training with food.
"After an overnight fast, your blood has a high concentration of fatty acids that can be used for fuel" said Javier Gonzalez Ph. D.
I hear people complain about not getting the results they desire from the gym. They work out like demons and yet, they don't feel like they are reaping the rewards for all their hard work. This prompts me to ask them "What is your diet like?", and that's usually when I get the "I know, I can eat better" or "It's been good lately" or "I eat good". That's when I become a little more curious and I ask them to walk me through a typical daily meal plan.
Men's Health came up with a list( yeah that is their thing because men have a short attention span) with foods that make you happy, healthy and help you live longer. Thought I would share. Introduce these to your pantry ASAP.
Steady state cardio if you are trying to trim a few pounds. According to The article, published in Obesity Reviews (Vol. 13 Issue 6), explained that cardio doesn't work for FOUR reasons:
•1 Some people eat more when they start a cardio program
•2 Calorie burning at rest often decreases with cardio
•3 Calorie-burning muscle tissue is often lost
•4 Cardio programs cause you to do less activity over the day
We all need to sleep better. Me included. Better sleep will help with recovery, muscle growth and fat loss. Heard it before.... correct? But how do we go about it? This is how....
1. Exercising in the morning around 7am will help you spend 75% more time in deep sleep and let you cycle through the four stages of sleep more often. What are the 4 cycles? I don't know but all I know is a sleep like a log after a early morning training session.
So what is the best way to lose fat? Without a doubt, nothing tops the most basic approach: eat less calories, eat whole food sources, engage in resistance training (to build lean muscle and burn more calories), and throw in some HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) for good measure. Based on my experience and astute observation of my peers, nothing beats this strategy for effectiveness.
so rememebr I said i was injured , ha!!! not only my leg but my neck has been hindering my movements. I must extend this process to 45 days , seeing as this week, is practically a waste for me. I am teaching but half way, I have not done anything extra at all, and if I stop, then this puts me 1 week behind. I have to be fair to myself, because life happens, I used to push through the pain, but ya i was much younger and healed faster, now healing feels like im at turtle speed.
Step #1: Reduce Sugar. A very effective way to restart your results is to reel in your sugar intake. Inspect all of your food for added sugars and eliminate items that contain high calorie sweeteners. This means no sugar, corn syrup, honey or maple syrup.
