Scott I struggle with diets and have trouble sticking to anything longer than a week. I had my share pies, cakes, cookies and ice cream over the holidays. I need your top 5 simple nutrition tips! Travis 1/04/2014
1. Consume Organic/Grass Fed Protein Sources
The first tip will be to eliminate refined foods and focus on organic food consumption to improve body composition as well as daily energy/performance. You must give an organic diet adequate time to work in order to earn the full fat burning and energy benefits.
In most cases it takes at least 2 weeks for the body to make positive adaptations such as transitioning to using stored fat as an efficient energy source. In many cases a month or longer may be needed with an organic plan pending the status of fat cells and many other elements when the program is started. Poor holiday eating for example creates problems with fat cell function as well as insulin sensitivity.
2. Macronutrient Cycle to Prevent Fat Loss Plateaus
We include macronutrient cycling strategies which are easy to implement in all of our client nutrition plans. Just like training, the nutrition must also change strategically to prevent metabolic staleness, increase fat burning enzymes and to optimize fat burning hormones. Adding more carbohydrate to certain meals on one training day per week is an example of macronutrient cycling. The timing, amounts and types of carbohydrates consumed are very important. Clients also implement dietary fat and protein loading to support rapid body transformations and improved performance.
We use Alpha Omega M3 during all meals which contain carbohydrate to optimize insulin sensitivity and prevent excess raw materials from spilling over into fat cells. The proprietary ratios of ingredients within Alpha Omega M3 drive nutrients into hungry muscles when taken during the meal following training.
3. Rotate Protein Sources to Prevent Food Irritations
Consuming the same foods consistently can cause the body to build irritations which can present as bloating, difficulty with body fat loss, sluggishness, rashes and more. Switching up your protein sources in particular will also prevent nutrition plan boredom. We encourage clients to try new food sources regularly and always focus on organic/grass fed choices. Changing the way protein sources are cooked can also help to prevent building irritations. Try grilling, baking, pan frying, oven broiling and more!
4. Improve Your Post Workout Nutrition Strategy
Whey Protein is one of the more common irritants we run into with clients as the highly concentrated dairy proteins can cause havoc quickly. If you are going to use protein powders, rotate them often and take notice of how you are feeling 30 minutes following consumption. If you are having stomach discomfort – it is very likely related to the protein powder consumed.
Flood the Nutrient Super Highway with Perfect Building Blocks
During training we pump a huge volume of blood into working muscles which acts as a nutrient superhighway. Introducing protein powder and sugar sources post training diverts blood to the digestive tract to assist with digestion and reduces the size of the nutrient Super Highway. Naturally Flavored 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder consumed before, during and immediately after training bypass digestive hang ups to take full advantage of targeted blood flow to deliver the perfect ratios of amino acid raw materials to hard working muscles. Dr. Serrano’s ground-breaking research and patient experiments determined the exact ratios of amino acids needed to be easily assimilated for new muscle growth.
5. Cleanse Your Fat Cells to Slash Your Stubborn Body Fat!
You mentioned bad food choices during the holidays which gave plenty of time for fat storing momentum to build up quickly. The junk food in particular screws up insulin sensitivity making your body over release insulin, the most powerful fat storing hormone every time you eat. Trans Fats found in the majority of package goods, breads, baked goods and other bad fats in fried items lodge into the fat cells making the belly fat cells expand quickly and interfere with the utilization of stored fat as fuel. Alpha Omega M3 contain the ideal ratios of ingredients to cleanse fat cells and optimize insulin sensitivity so you can quickly become a fat burning machine!
