Everybody’s weight loss goals are different. Some people are looking to become lean and toned fast, others are looking to shed a few pounds to be healthier, some workout and eat well, others don’t.
Postworkout (PWO) Nutrition: PWO nutrition is hands down the most important aspect of dieting to burn fat instead of muscle. It is within the 15 minutes after a workout that your body is in dire need of nutrients. It is in a completely anabolic state, and what you take in can be optimized to ensure maximum results. If you are burning calories and sweating off a ton of fat, you need to feed the machine immediately after your workout sessions. A banana or a handful of nuts are convenient snacks we like.
Protein: You need tons. 1.5-2.0 grams per pound of lean bodyweight is a good general rule of thumb. You should take in a good portion of your protein in the source of real meals, avoid relying purely on protein shakes, as real food comes with far better benefits. The list foods with high protein bioavailability is extensive (Egg whites, Lean steak, Chicken breast, the list goes on forever.).
Water: H2O is the lifeblood of your body and does an incredible job of flushing out your system. Among the many benefits of drinking water, it also helps your metabolism work more efficiently so it’s an ideal piece of the weight loss puzzle. You should be consuming at least half your body weight in ounces of water a day.
Fats: Guess what? You need fat to cutting fat. We are talking about the granddaddy of fats, the EFA (Essential Fatty Acid). Good sources of fat are (Flax Oil, Nuts, Salmon, Olive Oil).
Cardio: Cardio and getting ripped quick usually go hand in hand. If you are wondering how to get ripped fast and lose belly fat, cardio is a must! 45 minutes to one hour daily should be sufficient, and should be performed on an empty stomach.
Note: This is a sample diet for a 200-pound man who is wishing to lose belly fat fast, get ripped, and get the hard body that they’ve been hoping for. We can assume his BF to be around 17%. This diet will NOT work for you if those criteria don’t apply to you; however it is easy to customize the below diet to take in account your own statistics. It is the principles that are applicable. Further modifying this sample cutting diet to accommodate women wouldn’t be that difficult either.
Meal 1: Lean protein, 1/2 cup oatmeal
Meal 2: Protein shake/lean protein (2 tbsp flax)
Meal 3: Veggies, lean protein
Meal 4: PWO Nutrition
Meal 5: Veggies, lean protein, 1/2 cup rice or oatmeal.
Meal 6: Shake with flax
That turns into approximately 300 grams of protein, 130 grams of carbs, and 50 grams of fat.
*Reminder: This is a PRIMER. It’s not mean to be comprehensive.
