Diet Part 1: Weight Loss

The most common diet advice people ask me about is how to lose weight (fat). With myself and working with other clients I find that the best way to do this is to go on a “low carb boot camp.” When the body goes through the low carb diet it reaches into fat storages and utilizes them as energy, removing the unwanted fat.

The “boot camp” last 2 weeks and consists of eating like this and only this:

MEAT / VEGETABLES / HEALTHY FATS

Meats/Protein- Chicken, Turkey, Beef, Pork, Duck, Lamb, Fish, and Eggs*

Healthy Fats- Nuts and seeds (not flavored, salted or cooked), avocado, grass-fed butter, coconut oil, bacon*

Vegetables- Broccoli, spinach, brussel sprouts, asparagus, kale, and much more (the greener the better)**

*Meats need to be grass-fed, organic, non GMO etc.
**Veges need to be organic, non GMO etc.

After 2 weeks of going through that diet you do carb refeed. This usually ends up being a cheat meal but ideally would be a regular meal just with a lot of healthy carbs. This replenishes the body’s glycogen storages (muscle energy). From there you stay low carb for only 3-4 days at a time with a refeed every 3rd or 4th day. You do this until you achieve the weight loss goal or aesthetic goal you are looking for!

Nutrition and Recovery Intro.

For the next several weeks on Monday I will be posting about nutrition and recovery. They are the foundation for living a long healthy life and excelling as a Crossfit athlete. Without them our bodies can’t meet their true potential mentally or physically.

Nutrition and recovery includes diet (whole to lose/gain weight), supplement intake, sleep, mobility, self myofascial release (SMR), and exposure to intense temperatures (ice bath/sauna).

The more you recover the better you feel. That leads to more energy, working harder inside the gym and out of the gym, and getting more out of life!
