The Key to Sound Nutrition is Mastering the Basics.
Owner, AXIOM Health & Fitness
Everyday I work with people seeking the magic pill or some miracle to help them get the body they desire. I get bombarded with questions everyday about the best nutrition tips or how how to get the quickest results with as many short cuts as possible.
Well, to tell you the truth you must master the basics when it comes to nutrition and reaching the body you desire. It all starts with the proper mindset. You must know and understand that feeding your body with the right food, water, and supplements will get you the body you want.
I am going to give you a blueprint to follow. Just do what I say and you will achieve better health, gain energy, and achieve the body you desire. This is a simple and effective approach that you can easily incorporate in your life.
I have worked with hundreds of people to make fitness a priority in life. You must understand it is choice to be healthy and fit. All the best nutrition tips in the world don’t matter if you don’t take full responsibility for your body and health. No excuses! Execute and master your nutrition to live a long and healthy life.
I am sure many of you have heard that eating small frequent meals every 3-4 hours, 5-6 times per day is the best way to lose fat. Well, I am going to tell you that is wrong. I have heard it before well I read in this magazine or I heard on the news, blah, blah, blah. I am going to tell you don’t listen to them. They are in the business of selling magazines and getting big TV ratings. I am in the business of transforming lives.
So, if you want to burn body fat all the time you need to eat no more often than 4-5 hours. The reason is that you need to allow the liver to deplete its normal stores of sugar and lower insulin levels. After this point you burn stored body fat as fuel! If you eat every 3 hours you lose this ability to burn stored body fat because your are constantly using your liver to breakdown food you just ate.
You see, the more often you eat, the more you spike insulin-the hormone that tells your body to shut off fat-burning and start fat storing.
To master the basics you must eat only 3 times per day and avoid snacking. Don’t worry about the stories you hear that your metabolism will slow down. They are simply not true! It actually takes on average 5-8 hours for an averaged sized meal to fully digest, so if you eat more often than this, you are just putting food on top of food you are digesting. This causes a back-up in your digestive system, stresses your body to spike cortisol levels to increase inflammation, and slow down your body’s natural growth hormone production. The result…you get fat!
Obtaining the body you desire is simple if you follow the master plan
1. Get focused and act now
2. Stop eating processed foods. Eat clean and choose lean meats, nuts, oils, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
3. Focus on 3 meals per day and avoid snacking.
4. Drink plenty of water and herbal tea.
That’s it! Master these 4 steps and you will be well on your way to achieving the body you desire!
