You eat ‘good’, but the body isn’t changing?
Your body fat remains the same, or the lean mass isn’t increasing?
May I be frank (in the dialogue of Dave)…
Your answer to overcoming this lies in one simple solution
So to set the tone, consider this..
Would you expect me as a coach to feedback on your exercise technique if you never let me watch you lift?
Would you spend your money every month without checking your bank account?
So it defies rationale thinking to expect yourself, by mythical magic, unicorns and lepricorns, to get your nutrition right, by having no idea of how many calories you consuming
I was only speaking about this to a new member today, who wants increased muscle mass for rugby performance
And also a member who is trying to loose body fat for fitness and health
Both need to know, as you do, how many calories, you’re eating ACUTALLY
Because for newbie rugby guy, if its less or equal to what he expends, then he will fail
And in the second case, if its equal or above what they expend, then they will fail
So to avoid playing calorie Russian roulette and waste weeks eating based on ‘what you THINK’ is right…
Instead you can approach your nutrition based on what you KNOW is right
And guess what?
Once again, all the people who see these desired changes with these goals long term, all do this
So use a great app like my fitness pal to do this
And once you know how a day eating wise looks which hits you calorie targets, then your all good
Ah, and one last thing
For all that is holy, please, please, please don’t say ’you haven’t got enough time’
It takes about 3 minutes the first time to log a day, and then after about 90 seconds
Do it on the sofa, the train, in your training rest period
In this case, time isn’t the real excuse for not doing this….its just committing to doing the work to get what you want (aka laziness)
