Body Transformation Diet
So what diet is going to transform your body? In my experience, after 20 years working in Fitness and Nutrition, the best way to get guaranteed results, other than using my Nutrition Protocol, is to weigh and measure your food and count calories or follow a Macro Diet Plan.
Bodybuilder’s and fitness competitors have done this for many years but we didn’t used to call it that. The idea is that you decide on a daily caloric goal and weigh and measure your food. “Macro” stands for macronutrients, which of course are Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats.
Counting grams of macronutrients is the focus rather than counting calories, which encourages healthier eating. I have helped many clients lose weight and transform their bodies with calorie measured meal plans and it works 100% of the time if you don’t overeat.
Unfortunately, this type of dieting can kind of take the enjoyment out of eating since a scientific, unemotional approach is necessary to succeed. It works better if you think of your meals as fuel for your workouts to help you perform at peak levels.
After you determine the correct portion sizes that meets your daily goal you will want to prepare your meals ahead to set yourself up for success. It’s quite simple really, if after a week you are not losing weight you need to reduce the portion sizes. If you are ready to start out with this kind of a plan there are many free Macro Calculators online to help you determine the correct daily portions for weight loss. These are more to use as a starting point that you adjust up or down depending on your results and energy levels.
PROS: 100% Guaranteed weight loss if you don’t overeat. Takes the grey areas and guess work out of dieting, everything is measured and portioned.
CONS: Most people find it hard to stick with this level of meal planning and preparation. Takes the enjoyment out of eating since you are required to stick to the plan and eat small portions.
So whether or not you choose a Macro/Calorie measured diet you will want to eat mostly healthy foods wouldn’t you agree?
Back when I was competing in Bodybuilding we used to use a small amount of staple foods that were universally recognized as being nutrient rich, inexpensive and easy to cook and portion:
Chicken, Fish, Turkey, Eggs, Brown Rice, Sweet Potatoes, Oats, Broccoli and Asparagus were the staples of my measured meal plan and many times I would just cook up a bunch of these foods and then portion them into small meals to eat 3 to 5 times a day. You can get my full list of healthy foods by downloading my Nutrition Plan For Success PDF below.
Hiring a Fitness Meal Prep service is another option if you want to make it easier for yourself or don’t have time to prepare meals.
Whether you hire a nutrition expert to make your meal plan for you or you do it on your own with free online resources or apps like MyFitnessPal, you will most likely have to eat less.
You may feel a little hungry in the beginning. This will change after a a couple weeks and you will start to feel more energetic as your body gets used to burning fat for fuel. It’s important that you stick with it for the entire 6 weeks to get results.
If measuring and weighing foods is not for you then you might want to try my Nutrition Protocol.
