Check out this transformation from Fitness Camper - Emma 'The Hunt'
^^^ Pretty awesome right
(Emma's been with us since January)
You know how proud I am of you if you're reading this Emma! :)
You know what else is cool?
These results have been achieved in a completely sustainable and health IMPROVING fashion.
No BS crash dieting or extreme calorie deprivation.
You want to know why diets solely based around calorie deprivation DON'T work long term.
There's no focus on preserving muscle mass
Let me rewind for a second and hit you with a few stats:
- Gaining one lb of muscle mass will have you burning up to an extra 50 calories per day doing nothing (the heart needs to beat harder to supply said muscle with blood, thus burning more calories)
- Likewise losing one lb of muscle will have you burning up to 50 calories LESS per day
Imagine if you lose 10 lbs of muscle due to extreme calorie deprivation.
You'll be burning up to 500 calories a day LESS!
Then when you go back to normal eating (because no-one can stick to those crappy diets long term).
Bam! You put it all back on in a heartbeat
^^^ That's yo-yo dieting in a nutshell
I'd also like you to consider this little nugget of information:
- There's 3500 calories in 1 lb of bodyweight...
So if your body is burning 500 LESS calories a day.
Then you'll be putting on up to 1 lb of fat EVERYWEEK
^^^ Pretty undesirable right?
You want to know what to do about all of this?
1 - Make sure that you're basing every meal that you eat around Protein
2 - Train your entire body every week with exercises that challenge your muscles (resistance training)
That right there, is basically all that you need to do in order to preserve muscle mass
Then comes the finer details
- Exercising some degree of portion control (not counting calories!)
- Finding yourself someone to hold you accountable to your workouts and results
- Doing the right exercises at the right intensity
- Healthy fats
- Nutrient timings
- Which carbs to eat
- Finding a supportive and motivating group
But don't worry!
I can help you with all of that when you're ready
If you're training for weight loss, muscle toning and the way you look
Stop doing solely 'cardio' exercise...
That includes treadmills, cross-trainers, rowing machines, cycling, jogging etc.
They all do the same thing
And stop solely focusing on how much you are eating
Focus more attention on the content...
That's basing every meal around a good quality source of protein and eating less carbohydrates
Have a great day!
