“I want to lose fat, shouldn’t I avoid eating fat?”. This is good question, in fact there is several type of fats. Some are bad and others are required by your body. I recommend you to read this article: good fat versus bad fat.
It all depends on when you wake up and go to sleep. I would have breakfast within 2 hours of waking up and eat my last meal 2 hours before going to bed. There are no rules set in stone. If you feel hungry, EAT. This meal plan isn’t about starving yourself, it’s about fueling your body right when you feel hungry.
Do exercise, and do it double-time. You’ll probably need to exercise twice as much to meet your goals. Better pick a couple exercises that you really like, because chances are you’ll be doing a lot of them in order to burn 10 pounds in a week.
When the scale doesn’t seem to budge or you feel like your body isn’t changing quickly enough, it’s hard not to get discouraged. So track your progress from the start to see how much you’ve accomplished. This will help motivate you to keep going.
Try to stick to unprocessed, whole foods such as fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, whole grains, dairy and poultry for meals as well as snacks. Avoid processed foods, starchy vegetables such as potatoes, cabbage, and cauliflower. You can take calcium and multivitamin supplements along with this diet.
Hey Anna. It all depends on what I’m combining it with and what I have available. Sometimes I like to keep it simple with salt and pepper other times I’ll play with different herbs and spices, no specific rules here… you can try paprika, mediterranean…. have fun with it 😉
I would recommend customizing the meal plan for your individual needs. Your hubby definitely needs to increase the caloric intake, he can use the online calorie counter to get an idea of how much he needs according to his specific goals. You can both use the meal plan as a blueprint by making small adjustments to fit your needs!
Some of the foods here literally melt fat while you chew, thanks to their thermogenic effect on the body, while others contain a potent blend of fat-fighting macro-nutrients, including protein, fibre and complex carbohydrates that satisfy your appetite and keep your metabolism in fat-burning mode 24/7.
It seems like you are already on a good start with your active lifestyle. I definitely think that the 7-day shredding meal plan could help you lose that extra fat, however you want to make sure that you aren’t bringing your caloric intake too low, you may want to use the calorie calculator provided above to get an estimate of your daily requirements depending on you activity level, stats and goals! Keep us posted on your progress!
In your daily circuit you will do one set on a machine, then move to do a set on another machine, and on like that ’till you complete the circuit, jump on a cardio machine for 10 minutes, and return to your first machine, with no rest in between.
Once you’ve established your daily caloric intake, we suggest initially tracking your weight on a weekly basis. This will help determine if you need to adjust your calorie intake to optimize your fat-loss goals.
Complete the exercises in each workout as Straight Sets. For example, you’ll do one set of leg presses, rest for 30 seconds, do a second set, rest, do the third set. Then, move on to the next exercise. You’ll complete all movements in both workouts this way. Complete 12 reps of all movements for 3 sets each, and rest for 30 seconds in between each set. Choose a weight load where the last two reps of every set are extra hard, where wouldn’t be able to do a 13th rep. You may find that you increase the weight load for each set while keeping the 12 reps for all three sets.
The goal is simple: lose fat, maintain muscle mass, get in shape and transform your physique as much as possible over the next 3 months. You want to not only look better, but have the fitness level and strength to match your new body.
While it might look similar to other diets on the surface, this isn’t your traditional eating plan. It’s a smarter, simpler way to lose weight and flatten your belly. The difference is we take a behavioral approach to helping you drop pounds, which puts you in control of what you eat, when you eat, and the confidence you’ll have to finally make changes. We can’t promise that you won’t ever have a disagreement your body, but follow our steps and there will be a lot more love and happiness in that relationship.
Hi Andrea, although protein is an important factor in your diet, if you are looking to lose body fat, I highly recommend focusing on eating whole foods (real food).This means: veggies (a lot of them), nuts & seeds, lean protein, whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, bulgur, etc.), healthy fats (olive oil, fatty fish, avocado…) and let’s not forget water. You want to avoid processed foods and hidden sugars as well. I think that you are getting enough protein for you body weight and size, just make sure you don’t over do it with the HIITs, it takes your body at least 24-48 hours to recover from this type of intensive training. You might also want to try intermittent fasting to boost your fat loss and hold on to those hard earned muscles, you can watch this video for more info: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRqAg4QHQTc
Well, it must have been heard millions of times by now that the secret to a beautifully chiseled figure is 5-6 small meals per day rather than 3 heavy ones that all of us usually have. The small healthy meals at short intervals help in boosting up metabolism thereby burning more calories. The basic idea of the 1200 Calorie meal plan is the same.
Caloric intake: This meal plan contains approximately 1500-1600 calories. In order to customize it, calculate your daily caloric requirements with the calorie calculator and make the necessary adjustments (ex. if you need more calories, you can increase your portion size or if you require a smaller amount of calories, you can stick with 4-5 meals instead of 6). Just make sure that you are eating a minimum of 1200 calories per day for optimal results!
Although this calculator is a great tool, it’s not perfect. Keep in mind this is just an estimate, and although the Mifflin-St. Jeor equation is commonly used to assess caloric needs, it has been shown to underestimate resting metabolic rate.3
From the sound of it, you might think leaky gut only affects the digestive system, but in reality it can affect more. Because Leaky Gut is so common, and such an enigma, I’m offering a free webinar on all things leaky gut. Click here to learn more about the webinar.
If you’re new to weight training, don’t worry. Perkins created this four-week program to help you to build a solid foundation of strength training and shift your body into a new place after all that cardio. The really great news? You only have to do this routine twice a week. Each week, the moves will stay the same, but we’ll make the routine harder by changing the program variables (like rest, sets, reps, or load).
