Intermittent Fasting is not a diet. Diets all have the same things in common. They…
The great thing about Twitter and other forms of social media, is that it allows me to keep my ears very close to the ground in regards to the regular problems that guys are facing when they try to lose weight, get chiselled, and achieve 10% body fat.
I get about 200 DM’s per month, and several hundred notifications per day, so I have a very clear idea of where people are going wrong with Intermittent Fasting, what they need to reduce, and what they need to get more of in their diets.
In fact, these fat loss mistakes are shockingly similar to the ones I committed myself all those years ago.
Back in 2015, I was still a chubby bastard. I was a pretty popular guy, but I just wasn’t satisfied with the way I looked and felt.
I looked bloated. My face was chubby. I had a bit of a gut.
My energy also crashed around mid-day, which was a bloody disaster as far as productivity, fat loss and happiness was concerned. Something needed to change.
Looking back, there were two key changes I made that allowed me to get down to the 9% body fat I enjoy today:
Intermittent Fasting Diet Mistake #1
One of the biggest changes I made, and the biggest game-changer you could make, is meal-prepping.
Sounds so simple, doesn’t it?
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
Everyone knows about it, yet they NEVER follow through with it. Look, the canteen at your work is a bloody nightmare. You’re getting calorie-dense foods, high salt, high sugar, high everything, for very little satiety. This food is making you fatter, yet you don’t even realise it.
A very simple, yet effective way to blast the fat away, is to completely replace this with high protein, low carb meals, prepared by yourself either the night before, or a couple of nights before.
Great examples include:
- Chicken, rice & broccoli (old-school, yes, but it bloody works!)
- Tuna, spinach and avocado
- Salmon, potatoes and peas
Now although I am anti-zero-carb, I don’t suggest consuming too many carbs at lunch. The potential to have an energy crash is just too large. Save your carbs for the evening.
The above meals will get you loads of protein, satiation, micronutrients, and all of this will get you burning the fat faster AND easier.
Intermittent Fasting Diet Mistake #2
Another huge one that so many people are screwing up, is drinking sweetened coffee in the morning, as part of their Intermittent Fasting fat loss plan.
Whether it’s sugar or sweetener, it doesn’t matter. If you’ve got taste buds that are constantly telling you to eat more sweet stuff, you’re going to have a hard time losing fat.
I made this mistake four years ago. And I was stuck at 17% body fat as a result.
I wondered why the chubby cheeks weren’t disappearing.
Why the six pack hadn’t arrived yet.
Why I still had stubborn fat clinging relentlessly to my midriff.
And then I realised – having sweet stuff in the morning makes you crave more sweet stuff, snack more often, and completely forget to track the calories from the extra carbs you’re consuming. This phenomenon occurs for your entire day. By consuming sweetened crap in the morning, you have 16 hours or so to suffer increased cravings.
If you want to rapidly speed towards your biological body fat set-point (which is 7-14% body fat regardless of your age), then I you should consider checking out my IFFT Coaching.
