Ever see these weight loss adds online?
Where they advertise how their diet allows you to
eat more food, but yet lose more weight?
Your initial thought does be
Or just another bullsh#t diet to add to the long list.
BUT in fairness,
If the person stating this, is clued in on their nutrition
then they can actually be telling the TRUTH.
Once you get past the controversial, attention grabbing headline
and break it down, you’ll see the following.
The basics of weight loss comes down to calories in vs calories out.
So if they are talking about eating more calories
then exercise has to be bumped up in order to burn more off.
But think about the headline, it just said:
“Eat More, Lose More”
So if they just mean eat an increased amount of food
then here’s how it CAN work.
For example, If you swap the processed junk food crap
which has a very high calorie density for more natural foods,
lean meats & veg in particular
(as they have a pretty low calorie density)
You’ll see that the portion size of the meat & veg dinner
could be double the size of the junk food dinner,
but when you log it in MyFitnessPal,
it’s only half the amount of calories as the junk food meal.
So speaking just in terms of calories,
You could eat 2 meat & veg dinners
for the same no of calories as the junk food.
Which means 4 times the total volume of food.
But if you’re like most people who are conditioned just to eat 1 dinner
than you’ll be stuffed after the BIG meat & Veg meal,
you won’t bother with a second dinner,
so you’ll have created a nice little calorie deficit for yourself,
while still being pretty stuffed from your dinner.
See once you make the right choices
(most of the time)
There’s no need to starve yourself in order to lose the belly.
The lads in Bulletproof Dad are taken aback
by the amount of food they can eat & still lose the weight.
Mon to Fri, most of them don’t even use their full calorie allowance
so they can spend it on a few beers at the weekend.
And still be in a deficit for the week
& therefore not undo their hard work from training
