[headline_cufon_font_centered color=”#000000″]NO SNACKING at all throughout the day.Ever. Choose your meals wisely and enjoy eating filling meals and not nibbly snacks.[/headline_cufon_font_centered]
Vegetable choices should be of the colourful and bushy variety where possible. Avoid pasrnips, potato, swedes and most white vegetables on non workout days.
Keep liquids to water as often as possible due to the nature of other drinks (even diet drinks) they can still have an insulin like effect through certain sweetners.
REMEMBER, this diet is only temporary until you have shed off the body fat you don’t want. The less carbohydrates you consume throughout the day the faster your body fat will be used as energy. Dietary fat reduces the likelihood of  spiking blood sugar so have no fear, dietary fat will help you burn more fat.

Workout Days;
The same menu plan holds true BUT, after your workout you can feel free to add in treat carbohydrates such as pasta, rice, ice cream, chocolate cake, a glass of wine a pint of beer etc. Just don’t go over the top, keep the portions small. The scale may show an increase due to water retention that comes with carbs but it will soon slide off again after your treat night.
This part is important as the carbohydrates prevent you from crashing and falling off the diet. Plan your week ahead and they days you workout if you know you have an indulgent night out ahead!

 

Protein requirements are higher for those of us that train hard and thus the RDA of 0.5g per kg of bodyweight works ok on non workout days but needs at minimum, doubling on workout days and the next 12-24 hours.

Take this into account when choosing foods throughout the day.
