I've mentioned before that I end up doing a lot more 'office work' in this job than I thought I ever would
When I worked in a commercial gym as a P.T. talking to people was my 'marketing'
I thought I would be throwing weights around forever and chin wagging forever
But then I got out on my own in the big bad world and I've had to learn A LOT about letting people know that I exist
So I spend alot of time glued to my computer
Sometimes in my pants when it's hot...
With my glasses on...
When I'm working, sometimes I'll get sucked in... like pwwoper involved!
And I'll pretty much forget to eat, all day!
And it kinda got me thinking about a couple of 'myths' that people get mixed up in when trying to get back into shape:
1) If you don't eat small meals every few hours then your body will enter starvation mode...
If you go a few days without eating then yes, maybe
But small gaps of fasting have been shown to provide numerous health benefits
As well as the obvious weight loss from calorie deprivation
2 times it is important to get protein however (or BCAA's if you skip breakfast)
- after training
After that don't worry too much if you're meals aren't all at the exact same time every day
The other one!
2) Eating after a certain time in the evening will cause you to store fat
Tell me this...
How many more calories do we burn sitting on the couch watching Eastenders
In comparison to being in bed
Not many right?!
So unless your pre-bed ritual is running marathons, then the difference between sitting and laying will be pretty marginal
One thing you don't want to eat to close to going to bed however is carbs
As elevated blood sugar levels leads to a decrease in Human Growth Hormone release
^^^ A hormone that's secreted whilst you sleep and during states of fasting, beneficial for fat loss
This emails already gone on longer than intended
Just don't sweat the small stuff
Focus on what you're eating rather than when
And be consistent
