Eat Like a Caveman to Drop Fat Fast This Year!
So are you ready? This summer are you going to be rocking a Speedo or a Snuggie when you hit the beach? A Mankini or a Mumu? Even if you have been training hard, chances are your current “condition” is mainly a product of you dietary habits. You need to see your body for what it is, a fat storing, anti-starvation machine. The human body stores fat as an emergency energy source in case we get stuck in the desert miles from nowhere with nothing to eat. Once you understand why our body stores fat it becomes easy to understand why it is so easy to put it on but so hard to take it off.
One of the most effective approaches I have used to date to help clients, fighters, and myself to get lean and avoid any type of rebound is the paleo type/caveman diet approach. While most dietary plans can get fairly crazy specific with weighing foods and counting Calories, this approach to nutritional programming is fairly strightforward and can lead to some very enlightening discoveries on how your body handles several types of food. The premise is simple, if a caveman had access to the food you can eat it! That means no donuts, pizza, creme brulles and bread. I know you are upset right now but you can still eat those foods as your cheat meals (limited to 1-2 meals per week). When you revisit your favorite cheat meals you may be surprised by how well (or badly) your body reacts to them.
So the actual guidelines are fairly simple:
1. Eat some type of quality protein (eg. lean beef, salmon, chicken, bison) at each meal
2. Eat every 2.5-4 hrs never skipping breakfast
3. Avoid dairy and grains (these are amongst the most common food allergens and you may be surprised at how good you feel once you are eating them only as cheat meals)
4. Stop crying about point 3
5. Avoid processed foods
6. Vary your foods as much as possible
7. Gravitate towards fibrous carbs (eg. broccolli, mushrooms, asparagus, zucchini) and dark fruit (eg. blueberries, cherries, apples, plums)
8. Don’t be afraid of good quality fat sources (eg. fish oil, olive oil, walnuts, almonds, pecans, avocado)
Apply these simple changes to the way you choose your meals and you will be surprised at how fast your body responds.
