What I love most about my nutrition system for BPD
(apart from the amazing results it’s helped my lads achieve)
is the flexibility it offers.
Let’s say your calorie target is 2200 per day & your protein is 160 grams.
On Saturday you’re meeting the lads down the pub to watch the match.
You’re going to have roughly 6 pints, which works put at around 1200 calories.
So Monday to Friday you re-adjust your calorie target to 1800, and the same on Sunday (the day after).
Despite the fewer calories, each day you still have to hit protein and your 5 fruit & veg.
Once you’ve done this, you’ve effectively saved up 1200 calories
that you can now spend on your weekend.
So you can go out and make the most of the fine weather.
eat out, have an ice ream with the kids, have a few beers,
whatever you’re into.
And without wiping out the deficit you’ve built up all week.
Because you track it, you can effectively “earn” your night out.
Obviously instead you could stay in,
save the calories and have a bigger deficit for the week.
But having a few treats to look forward to is key to keeping you on track.
All part of enjoying the process as I mentioned earlier.
And from my experience with training lads,
it’s the few beers they enjoy most as their treat.
Or that or a meal out with the missus.
OR EVEN, staying in with the family and ordering a takeaway
The best nutrition plan is the one you can actually stick to.
So don’t try restrict & punish yourself.
Just implement the things you think you can do
without getting overwhelmed.
I strongly encourage you to download the myfitnesspal app.
It’s free and gives you great perspective on your daily food habits and requirements.
Give it a genuine go before you dismiss it.
