Ok, so last Tuesday I popped out some cracking info
on carb cycling and how that can work for you if you need to keep your carb
cravings under control and start burning more body fat.
I actually forgot to mention these 5 key steps that would set you up for success.
5 steps to kick starting YOU.
- clear out the cupboards
- go shopping (or if you are cooler than me get it delivered)
- cook your food (yep I am yet to meet someone who gets in great shape from value ready meals)
- go for a walk everyday
To keep things really simple just use this 3 step process for making your main meals
on your non training days. Remember its not NO carb on those days, its just lower carb.
Veggies are more fibrous, but do contain carbs.
NUMBER 1 – 1 PALM SIZE PORTION OF PROTEIN
Chicken thighs – yes the brown meat wont kill you
Oily fish- mackerel, sardines etc
And if you fancy something a bit different- Alpaca or Kangaroo
NUMBER 2- 2-4 HANDFULS OF GREENS
I don’t need to mention that you shouldn’t be boiling any of your veggies here do I ? … well just in case you need a reminder to dig out that steamer, a lot of them contain water soluble vitamins and they
will leach out when you boil them…..kissing good bye to a lot of the benefits in the process.
Pak Choi- awesome at metabolising belly fat
NUMBER 3- 1 TABLESPOON OF FATS
Olive oil- just don’t fry it
A note on fruit……
Now I know avocados, cucumber and tomatoes are fruits but they are all good here.
If your goal is to lose some body fat then go for berries, a little lemon on your salads.
I would avoid bannana’s dates and mangoes UNLESS they are part of your post training nutrition.
They are best eaten earlier in the day as that is when we are most receptive and able to utilise the sugar.
A Note on the extras
Please please use spices, herbs etc to make all of the above tasty.
Curry powder, garlic, ginger (awesome for blood pressure) , coriander, parsley, chilli, cinnamon, cumin, oregano, basil, bay leaves to name juts a few!
Ok…I hope this helps.
