Top 3 Fat Loss Tips – #30
Fat Loss Tips – #30
Here’s today’s 3 top fat loss tips:
This is very important. Your testosterone levels start plummeting after around age 40, and you need to stop this. Eating enough healthy fats from fish, eggs, avocado’s etc. will mitigate this, same with consuming enough D3. Same with sleeping 8 hours every night. Most people are not already doing the above three, therefore they need to be addressed.
However, you must realise that this natural boost is only going to take you so far. Do this first, but realise that as you age there is a maximum capacity testosterone production for a man in his fifties, for example. You can have the perfect diet, sleep and everything else can be in place, but your testosterone production will still be nothing compared to a younger man.
This is where TRT needs to be researched. I highly advise it.
This one should be obvious, I mean, if you struggle to stay full, the last thing you should be thinking about is reducing your fiber intake. I would advise to go the other way and increase your fruit and vegetable intake significantly.
Fruit can be a great snack to tide you over in between meals, really keeping you full and also preventing your sweet tooth from getting the better of you (depending on the fruit itself).
Jason talks in the video about how he normally eats 4000 calories to maintain his bodyweight but is losing fat now due to struggling to even eat 2500 calories. He thinks it may be due to a stomach bug. It kind of reminds me of when I was in Madrid; I thought I was sick but it turned out my bodyfat set point had changed, and my appetite with it. I wonder if Jason has finally managed to do the same…
You may or may not be aware of the late night carbs myth. The theory was always that if you were to eat any carbs in the evening, they would all be stored as body fat overnight because you have no time to burn them off, and you can’t possibly be burning carbs while you’re sleeping, right?
As always, the overall context of energy balance from week to week is far more important than any of this super-micro-level crap. So don’t fall for myths like carbs are evil after 6pm™, or all carbs are evil™, or breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Meal timing rules are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things; you need to do what suits your schedule and your lifestyle. This will also change over time. I’ve written before about how my Intermittent Fasting schedule changes as I get super lean. Your meal timing requirements may change due to your job, your kids or whatever. The point is, listening to myths about when it is “appropriate” to eat is completely stupid.
Your body fat doesn’t give a shit when you eat.
Your muscle doesn’t give a shit.
Fitness doesn’t give a shit.
If eating carbs in the evening helps you sleep better, do it. It does for me. Do what’s right for you.
