Workout less and lose more? Here's how!
Yep, the simple answer is nutrition, nutrition, nutrition! I've talked about it before, but it is SO key! You can workout for an hour or 4 hours, but you're not going to see the results until your nutrition is in check!
I was actually asked by several fellow Beachbody coaches just how long our workouts with Shaun T are, because they're figuring that we must be doing super long workouts or doubling up on workouts to get these results! NOT TRUE! It's a simple matter of our nutrition being monitored and controlled! You can do the same at home! Here's how:
Once a week, say on a Sunday, when you have some free time, you want to get up early, set your calorie goal for that week – this depends on what your fitness goals are, weight loss, maintaining, muscle gain, etc….set that goal, then plan your entire week on paper. No, really. 5-6 meals a day, for one solid week. Make a grid if you need to, write down all 7 breakfasts, midmorning snacks, lunches, afternoon snack, dinner, with an optional casein protein shake before bed to work that metabolism all night if you haven't reached your calorie limit by that point.
Once you have it all written out, you simply sort out the ingredients on a new sheet, writing the amounts you'll need beside each ingredient. This is your grocery list. Go buy the groceries.
Now, bring everything home and cook your entire week. That's right, on that very Sunday, cook your week of food. Yes, it takes time, that's why you have allotted this one day to prepare so you save tons of time the rest of the week. Cook the meals, then separate them into pieces of tupperware. Put 3 days worth into the fridge, and the rest into the freezer. After 2 days you will take the items in the freezer and put them into the fridge to be ready for you later in the week.
There, you're done! It sounds daunting, but in one Sunday morning and afternoon you have just set yourself up EXACTLY like our test group, with a super easy and super fast food selection for your entire week! Grab your little portable cooler, fill it up each morning with your meals for the day, and go about your super busy life! Get your workout in, eat your meals ON TIME every single day (for example breakfast – 7am, then 10:30, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm, 9:30pm) and see TRUE RESULTS, just like our Hip Hop Abs test group!
