Torching Fat In The Kitchen!

As the old cliché saying goes, ‘’a 6 pack is made in the
kitchen.’’ In the world of fitness there is no saying which is truer, without
the right diet you are simply dreaming. Having said that I also believe that
everyone is different therefore it can be very hard to advise ‘’all of you’’ in
one collective article. Therefore I wanted to present you with a range of ‘’guidelines’’
instead which will offer a starting point to work from. Think of this as a
quick ‘’one stop guide’’ to eating for fat loss.


Counting calories can become a rather tedious task for sure,
yet by doing so you do have a specific reference point to work with. Whilst we
are all individuals I believe that anywhere between 10-12 calories per pound of
body weight is a great place to start. This leaves you with a reasonable volume
of food yet it also limits it to a large enough extent you will see a


Without sounding like a robotic bodybuilding underground ‘’brother’’
protein should be the king pin of your diet. Aim for at least 1.5g of protein
per pound of body weight, and no more than 2g. Both fats and carbohydrates are
a very individual thing BUT I would suggest that a combination of the two can
work well, and more importantly remain a part of a balanced lifestyle change.

I would recommend a carbohydrate and fat cycling diet where
you followed 3 days of low carbs and high fats, 2 days low fat and high carbs. This
will keep the metabolism guessing and it will also offer you relief in terms of
enjoying carbs. Bear in mind they need to be healthy low GI carbs, and the fats
needs to be healthy as well – no junk food here! On high fat days aim for 0.6g
of fats per pound of body weight and 50g of carbs. On high carb days go for 1g
per pound of body weight, and limit fats to before bed. Always have plenty of
fibrous vegetables such as broccoli, which you can have in unlimited

Tricks of the Trade

There are also other steps you can take to maximise fat loss
with your eating and here are a few pointers I will share with you.

Limit fructose
because it does not elevate insulin levels therefore there are volumes of sugar
in the blood with no means to being absorbed by the cells within the body –
this will ultimately lead to them being stored as fat unless you need energy

Eat every
2-3 hours to keep the metabolic rate firing and to keep your blood sugar levels

Only eat
LOW GI carbs, no high GI carbs because this will force you to become more
insulin resistance in most cases

When cravings
are unbearable have a handful of nuts because the fats will curb the hunger
pains as they are very calorie dense

Following these simple yet effective guidelines should
really help you torch your fat levels this summer!
