Does Intermittent Fasting Work?
This is an absolutely brilliant article by the guys at Biotrust.
Back to Nutrition.
Here is what I know.
There are too many variables to suggest that 1 plan works for everybody.
Sometimes doing something that seems totally at odds with traditional knowledge works best.
Try different ways of eating until you find out the way that works best for you.
I see people making 2 big mistakes.
1. Not giving plans a chance to work.
Can I sell you on the idea that “Pretty good is good enough?”
2. Following nutrition plans selectively.
Intermittent fasting isn’t a new concept but it is endorsed by a number of people I consider leaders in the industry. I am talking about the nutrition industry not the nutrition marketing industry. People like Dr. John Berardi, my coach at Precision Nutrition. And yes, it flies in the face of what you read.
- Breakfast is the most important meal.
- You need fuel in the morning or your body will burn muscle for energy.
- Eat a big breakfast and you have all day to burn it off.
Those things are all true…for some people. Yet this works. It works for me and many other people who have tried it.
I have to ask, are you having trouble losing fat? Are you really working on it or just half-assing it? (pardon the french)
If you are working out and eating clean and nothing is happening, try intermittent fasting. It is an eating system that can rebalance your hormones and remove any obstacles to fat loss.
P.S. In addition to this article, I would add just 1 more thing. (I always have to, don’t I?)
Think about taking a probiotic, if you aren’t already.
The simple act of rebalancing your gut bacteria can make a massive change in how you feel. I mean massive.
There are a number of very good probiotics out there. Here is one from Biotrust to check out.
The ONE Day Diet
(Entire Diet Laid Out In This Article)
Hey, it’s Coach Josh and today I’m going to reveal a VERY simple, ONE Day Diet you can follow daily to get a flat belly fast.
But first, let’s be honest… dieting, well… sucks. (I bet you don’t hear many nutritionists admit that.)
It’s not surprising that almost no one on the entire planet gets excited about dieting. (Yippee I get to EAT LESS and stress myself out MORE with a confusing and time consuming program!)
But what if I told you that there is a very simple (dare I say easy), way to get an attractive flat belly that removes all of the guess work and also allows for daily “treats” that you can’t wait to enjoy?
You’d probably say I’d lost my marbles, right? Well, maybe that’s true… but let’s jump right into the secrets of my new ONE DAY DIET plan.
Secret #1: Harness the power of intermittent fasting. This is where you send your fat-burning hormones into overdrive by eating your meals during a specific window of time during the day. (I won’t bore you with all the science details now, but just know it’s a cool trick to remove that pesky flab.)
Secret #2: Enjoy two, super-quick, 60-second flab-burning “milkshake” meals during the day (I’ll show you how you can get my favorite recipe book, 53 Fat-Burning Smoothies & Milkshakes100% FREE in just a minute).
Secret #3: Eat a balanced dinner in the early evening.
So here’s my typical One Day Diet plan:
MEAL ONE: Skip breakfast (what?!) and then eat your first meal at 12 noon. Your first 60-second meal will consist of a fat-burning, all-natural, high-protein BioTrust “milkshake.” I change up the flavor almost daily, but here’s what I enjoyed today:
Pumpkin Pie Milkshake
2 scoops of all-natural BioTrust Low Carb Vanilla Protein
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
stevia (to taste)
5 ice cubes
Notes: Put all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
MEAL TWO: Three hours later at around 3PM have your second 60-second fat-burning, all-natural, high-protein “milkshake” meal. Here’s the recipe I used today:
Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake (delicious!)
2 Scoops of all-natural BioTrust Low Carb Vanilla Protein
1 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1/2 Cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt
1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
1/2 TSP Cinnamon
Stevia (to taste)
5 Ice Cubes
Notes: Put all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
MEAL THREE: Three hours later (post workout) at around 6 pm have a healthy dinner which consists of:
- A portion of a lean protein source (like chicken, grass-fed beef, wild salmon, or turkey) equal to the size of your palm and the thickness of a deck of playing cards
- A half cup of a nutrient-packed complex carbs like half a sweet potato, quinoa, barley or beans
- A cup or two (eat all you want really) of fibrous veggies like asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, peas or a dinner salad. (Use a bit of olive oil and seasonings to flavor.)
I also drink at least 8 large glasses of water per day (important)… and I enjoy a cup of green tea or organic coffee most mornings. Then, one day a week, I take a day “off ” the One Day Diet plan and eat regular meals all day (typically Saturday for me). I follow the One Day Diet for 30-days and then take a full week off and repeat.
To keep things interesting, I constantly switch up my BioTrust fat-burning milkshake recipes and as mentioned I’m going to give you the opportunity to get the same recipe book I use called “53 Fat Burning Smoothies & Milkshakes”… for FREE!
It’s that simple? YEP!
Does it really work to fight flab fast? DOUBLE YEP!! It works like a charm.
So to recap, you simply have two great tasting, all-natural, flab-fighting milkshakes a day, and then eat a nutrient-packed dinner. Simple, easy, fast. But the key is to stop eating after your third meal and not eat again until your first meal the next day. This fast will send your fat-burning hormones into overdrive, help shrink your stomach, and keep your fat-storing hormone insulin in check.
Now, the #1 most frequently asked question I get about the one day diet is, “Is it important to use all-natural BioTrust Low Carb protein for my milkshakes?”
And my response is, “YES!” Here’s why…
For starters, it’s the best-tasting protein on the planet, period. If you’re going to be drinking shakes daily, you want to make sure you’re using a brand that you truly enjoy and look forward to. This stuff is like dessert… literally.
Beyond that, it’s 100% all natural. That means it contains no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, preservatives, or additives… at all. Instead, it’s naturally sweetened with stevia and a naturally sweet form of fiber called inulin that adds a sizable 4 grams of fiber per 24 grams of protein.
Next, BT Low Carb is Certified Hormone-Free, sourced from cows not treated with dangerous growth hormones like rBGH and rBST (not the case for 99% of all other protein products).
On top of that, it’s a true time-released blend of 4 different fast- and slow-acting proteins that provide your body with quality nutrition for up to 8 hours, without the insulin-spike associate with whey-protein-only products.
Lastly, and perhaps one of the coolest aspects of BioTrust Low Carb, is its use of a new breakthrough enzyme blend called ProHydrolase that has been shown to more than DOUBLE protein absorption over other products. In fact, it’s the only protein supplement on the market that has access to this enzyme blend currently… truly cutting-edge stuff!
Beyond that, Prohydrolase completely eliminates the bloating and gas that many complain of with whey protein supplements. Instead, BioTrust Low Carb is about as easy on your GI track as a glass of water!
