There is dieting and then there is dieting. To claim you are ‘’dieting’’ doesn’t tell the whole story, let me explain. If sub 10% body fat is the goal as a male, or sub 15% as a female then every single calorie you put into your body counts. Having said that, I hate to use the word ‘’calorie’’ in fear this will be misinterpreted and taken out of context. Just in case, the nutrients you eat are the most important thing not the number of calories. Every nutrient has a different effect on hormone response within your body, and ultimately how your body is able to burn body fat. Today I wanted to ask you a question, ‘’how far do you go?’’ as I share with you some key changes you can make to reach your fat loss goals faster.
Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day or the tastiest day of the year. These are all names which can easily be associated with today’s date. However, more often than not as a dedicated athlete I find myself missing out on stacks of pancakes drizzled in maple syrup, draped in chocolate sauce or lemon juice with sugar. Even though I am currently watching my diet because I have a TV show to shoot in 3 weeks, I will not be forgoing the pleasure of eating pancakes today. These pancakes will also be caked with chocolate sauce, have I gone crazy? Not quite, because as I keep saying dieting doesn’t have to taste bad. This is probably one of the best examples to prove my point. Try out this very easy recipe and see if you don’t agree with me.
Being a business man or woman can mean that you have very little free time on your hands.

If you are struggling to find time to eat a diet for fat loss or get to the gym then here is one example of a 12 week plan that I did that may work well for you.
