Now you’re probably thinking what’s this clown on about.
How can someone be giving out such advice?
Having a burger and a pint is surely going to increase your waistline not shrink it.
Everything you learn over the years from those clever well marketed MASSIVE food companies and pathetic supplement “health” brands have left the average person confused on what to do.
Don’t panic I’ve got you covered!
Calories in vs Calories out
There’s enough scientific research that backs it all up.
Don’t panic I’ll not bore you to death with it.
Simply you need to create a calorie deficit to drop fat.
There’s a reason popular fads such as intermittent fasting, 5:2 diet, paleo can work if done correctly.
To quote a buzz word in the fitness industry at the moment it’s all about the “calorie deficit”
So how could you still enjoy a pint and a burger and shift some fat?
You need to workout the EXACT amount of calories you need per day. There’s a few different formulas to work it out, just head on over to google and enter calorie counter.
You’ll soon realise there is plenty room for a pint and a burger.
Nobody wants to be eating chicken and veg every day I get that.
Which is why if you want to shift some timber you probably should start tracking what you eat. (you’ll be surprised)
The smart thing to do is work out how many calories you need in a week.
E.g Say you’re allowed 2200 kcal/day to hit your fat loss goal. 7 x 2200 = 15400 kcal per week.
Now because you wanna enjoy your weekends with some food and drink this is what your week might look like.
Pint of cools light = 182
Monday – 1400 kcals
Tuesday – 1400 kcals
Wednesday – 1400 kcals
Thursday – 1400 kcals
Friday – 1400 kcals
Saturday – 4200
Sunday – 4200
Now before some weasel health Nazi PT says yeah but that’s not healthy.
You’ve got more chance of sticking to a diet with foods you enjoy than eating salads every day, getting bored, giving up and going back to your old ways.
Maybe above is a little extreme but it would work.
