During a recent conversation with my boy Tyler Bramlett, he mentioned something to me that kinda blew my mind… Here is what he said:
“Yea… It’s true. No matter if you’re a man or a women, you can actually gain up to a pound of fat each and every year once you hit your adult years. And dude, it only gets worse when you hit the age of 25. You can start storing over 5 pounds a year as a guy and up to 8 pounds a year as a women.”
Imagine that… In just a 5 year span, you could easily put on 25-30 pounds of fat without even realizing it. You have heard people say before: “Where did all this weight come from…”
It really does sneak up on you. I have clients tell me all the time that “it felt like just yesterday” when they were fit and in shape. Lets be honest, we know that “starting tomorrow” rarely happens and that ‘Monday diets” never work.
The fact of the matter is that you must start today, right now, at changing your health.
Today, our focus is on nutrition… Take a look at this quote:
“The most important meal you eat is your next one.”
Let me say that again: the most important meal you eat is your next one.
Let that simmer for a moment…
If you get finished reading this article then go out and have a chicken breast, some veggies, and a sweet potato… You will be one step closer to taking back your health.
If, however, you go and down a greasy burger and fries… Well, you know what direction you are headed…
Now listen, I am not hear to tell you to give up burgers and fries and pizza for the rest of your life. No wayyyy would I ever tell you that!
All I am saying is that you must start being more aware of what you are putting into your body the majority of the time.
80-90% of the results you see will come from the foods you eat, your nutrition.
The other 15-20% will come from your workouts, sleep, stress, etc.
But it all starts with nutrition.
Now, I understand that eating healthy is difficult. However, once you get in the groove it becomes easy. For the remainder of your meals today, here is what I want you to do:
Choose a Protein Source:
- Grass Fed Beef
- Wild Game
- Whey protein shake (can only be one meal)
Choose Your Veggies:
Choose a Fat Source:
- Grass fed butter
- Coconut oil
- Olive Oil
- Nut Butters
Now make your meal and eat it. Pretty simple, right?
I know what your thinking… What about my carb source? If you feel you need to add in some carbohydrates to your meals, choose from the ones below:
- Black or pinto beans
- Sweet potatoes
- White potatoes
There you have it, the simple pick and choose list of foods for you to use when preparing your healthy meals.
If you referenced this list for 80% of your meals, you will start burning fat instead of storing it like most people around you are.
Here is a sample meal that I just prepared with the list of ingredients on this page:
- Protein: Grass fed ground beef
- Veggies: Asparagus, broccoli, spinach
- Fat: Grass fed butter
- Carb: None (will include in my post workout meal)
Took my ingredients, popped them in the microwave and boom… healthy meal done and ready to go!
The formula is simple, the ‘doing’ is the hard part. I challenge you to take the rest of today and follow the pick and choose list above.
You will start feeling better, looking better, and performing better within a matter of days by being consistent while doing this.
Don’t let what Tyler told me earlier be true about you… You are different than most. That is why you are here reading this article. The time to change your health is now, so stop the excuses and go to work!
