There are many best diet for mass gain. So whoever the diet industry is or the guys that continue to create these gimmick diets are basically, you know providing this guy you know an opportunity to continue to waste his money. Here’s my point guys, again let’s not bash any one way because things that get people to lose weight, it’s good for a step. And if it’s helping you to realize that you can achieve a more healthful way of living, just because you’ve found some success with one method. Then that is great, that is good. But you’ve got to figure out how you can get yourself to use that as a springboard to a healthier approach to eating.
Ok, to have a respect for it. Guys that argue intermittent fasting it can provide a more convenient way for them to eat because they’re so busy. I just got back from Vegas guys, I had extremely busy days. Between work and play, we were busy days. I used supplementation to help me get through that. I don’t have to say, I’m going to eat just for 6 hour. I’ll throw some protein I’ll throw it in a bag, I’ll take it on the road with me, mix it up in a shaker bottle and I’m good to go. So convenience doesn’t have to be that I have to restrict my eating.
You can still eat sensibly. You can still get your protein. You can still get your carbohydrates. You’re still eliminating your refined carbohydrates, you know. You’re trying to eat your fibrous carbohydrates, right, fiber, get your fiber into your diet. Don’t overlook that component. Get your fats, you need fats for fat soluble vitamin absorption. Alright, these are all important components but we tend to make it complicated because we’re looking for the catch all, you know answer, in here. When it doesn’t provide it and it certainly doesn’t provide it, long term.
So what’s the answer guys? Start educating yourself on proper nutrition and start making that transition now. Because if you can make that transition now to proper eating, you’re going to be living and reaping the benefits of it for many many many years to come. And you will find that it is the most sustainable easy to follow way to eat of anything that’s out there. By adopting a respect for the right types of food and then not. Here’s the last thing I’ll say, the one way where guys get tripped up is, they’ll say to me, But I eat great, my diet is so locked in and everything is great but I just can’t lose the fat. And you know what I ask them, I have one question.
The first question I say is, Do me one favor? Write down for me, everything you eat from now until next, this is a Friday night, from now until next Friday night. Tell me everything you’ve eaten. Don’t, anything that goes into your mouth, you put it down. You know how many times I’ve actually gotten back that sheet of paper from somebody? I’ve probably asked that question over a thousand times in my life and the number of times I’ve gotten back that sheet of paper? I think twice, I think twice. Once guys start to realize, I didn’t realize, I’ve got to write that down and hand it to him. Of course I shouldn’t had that donut.
Or I shouldn’t have had, you know those three beers on Friday, I didn’t think beers counted. You know, liquid calories. Guys, you know when you’re screwing up. You know what’s good food, you know what’s not. You know what should be allowed, you know what’s not. It’s the dedication to determining whether you want to live that and how restrictive do you want to be. Again, my goals may not be your goals. I’m looking, this is what I do for a living. I have to make a statement when I walk into a room because I’m surrounded by athletes that are already 10% body fat.
I need to be able to command attention and let them know that I know what I’m talking about. Just because I live this. Right, so for me my standards I have to be lower, 4-5%, 6%. So again, my rigidity on my diet is different. But you can easily look great by just following a modified version of that. But making sure that you’re following a healthy eating plan and getting rid of these things guys. Again, use them as a springboard but get yourself on to the way you know you should be eating. And guys I’ve already talked about it, ATHLEANX, our whole system is based on a meal plan that gets you into that mode. It’s based on realistic eating. It’s actually based on eating good tasting foods.
Alright but we just know that they’re good for you. And we’re not looking at doing any elimination diets or anything like that. We’re looking to do a sensible eating plan that you guys can live with. And that guys is over at ATHLEANX.COM, it comes in our ATHLEANX Training System. And again, it’s something I think, I know that you can follow because I’ve lived it myself for the last twenty years. So that being said guys, I hope you find this to be at least helpful to getting you on track to getting you to be focus where you know you should be focusing. To try to limit your focus on these types of things to be nothing more than just a springboard to getting you back on the path and knowing that you should be doing better.
