How to Use “CHEAT” Meals to Burn More Fat

In this video I will explain how to use “Cheat Meals” to help you burn more fat, stay sane, curb your craving and boost your metabolism. And don’t forget to pick up your  new 31-page free report that reveals SEVENTEEN “cheat” foods that manipulate hormones to BURN serious belly flab…and fast below. You can get the entire list of cheat foods (on page 12) How to Eat What You Want And Burn More Fat If you think I eat clean and healthy 100% of the time, you are crazy! Even I like the foods that are “bad” for you once in a while. The fact is you need to “Cheat” on your healthy nutrition once in a while, to help keep you in control and set you up to stay on your plan long term. One of the strategies I use is to have planned “Cheat Meals” throughout each month. Implementing these “Cheat Meals” has allowed me to stay lean, muscular and ripped over a long period of time. The advantages are: 1. Sanity - It is hard to eat clean every day of the year without going in sane and having planned cheat meal will help keep you from going “crazy” 2. Curbs Cravings that we usually have throughout the month helping you to stick to your clean diet long term. 3. Boost Metabolism – Believe it or not, when you have been eating healthy for a long period of time and suddenly shock your system with a fattening meal, you will reset your metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories 4. Control Over Your Diet – when you have control over your diet you are more likely to stick with it for a long period of time, helping you to reach your goals faster. So I have and suggest 3 planned cheat meal per month if you want to be lean and ripped. 1. Planned Night/Day/Breakfast with Wife – I always have one cheat meal with my wife every month where we go have breakfast at the local greasy spoon. 2. Unforeseen Circumstance - I also keep a cheat meal open for if I go out to function or something 3. Healthy Cheat meal to curve any craving I may have – For that it is usually a Chicken Lasagna (big portion) once per month usually on a Sunday after a really clean week, to help re-boost the metabolism…but it’s not really cheating as it’s chicken lasagna which is just really high in starchy carbs on a non workout day! – METABOLIC STIMULATION 4. Bonus Cheat Meal (Woman Only!) – Women score an extra cheat meal to help with strong sugar cravings that most get during the menstrual cycle. I think planned cheat meals are important for sanity, metabolic stimulation and having control over your diet and nutrition… DO NOT HAVE Cheat DAYS!!!! You can’t sprinkle cheat meals in here and there, the meals also do not carry over for the next month if you miss one and use a calendar to plan them monthly.

Fat Burning Metabolic Nutrition: Moroccan Chicken Recipe (VIDEO)

Nutrition is the main ingredient if you want to truly lose weight, build muscle and burn off unwanted body fat. You cannot out train a bad diet, so no matter how many metabolic workouts, interval sprints, crossfit classes, Tough Mudders or hours of cardio that you do, if your diet sucks then you will NEVER reach your goals and will continue to get frustrated with your results! Knowing the right foods and how to cook them is a HUGE part of not only looking 
fantastic all year round but also feeling that way because your inner health is optimized. 
I’ve grown to love cooking for a couple of reasons. Some of my all time favorite recipes are from Dave and Karine’s Metabolic Cooking 2.0 and 
to help them celebrate their 50% off Sale this week I decided to cook their Chicken with Moroccan Seasoning and Quinoa recipe (on page 22 of the Chicken and Poultry Cookbook). Here’s something Angela and I made right out of Dave and Karine’s “Metabolic Cookbook 2.0″ — their super popular new fat burning cookbook. The Chicken with Moroccan Seasoning and Quinoa took us under 20 minutes to prepare and cook, and took me 2 minutes to eat. It is so good and tasty. Since we have started with cooking from this book, we can definitely see and feel the difference in our bodies. We are consistently sub 10% body fat throughout the year. Metabolic Thermo-Charge (of food) It stands for how many calories your body is going to burn just breaking down the nutrients each time you consume a certain food. For example protein tends to have a high Metabolic Thermo-Charge. For this reason, by having high-quality protein in your diet, you’ll naturally burn off more calories and move closer to your goal weight.

Nutrition: 5 Reasons Drinking Water Will Help You Burn Fat and Lose Weight (video)

I know that you’ve heard this before, but drinking a lot of water is actually one of the few bits of conventional wisdom that is actually true for increased fat loss. One of the biggest assets to helping you burn fat and lose weight is drinking is water. If you are not drinking enough water each day, your nutrition plan will without question be much less effective in transforming your body than if you were drinking enough. Our bodies are approximately made up of 70% water by weight, and it is needed for nearly every body function, including digestive processes. We lose about a liter of water per day just through our skin and lungs (and that amount can easily triple if you are consistently working out). If you’re not getting enough, your body will not be metabolizing fat and digesting food as efficiently. HOW MUCH WATER DO YOU NEED DAILY The average person needs more than the standard 64oz of water to function optimally. Because we are training at high intensity multiple times per week you want to shoot for 80-100oz of water per day. Measuring Your Water Intake Daily: Below is a breakdown of how much water you should drink (not including during your workouts) each day in order to facilitate fat and weight loss per measurement. 2500ml 6-8 Glasses of Water 84oz 4-5 20oz Bottles of water 10 cups of water Watch this video I shot in Thailand that talks about one way you can start to get more water into your body on a daily basis Here are 5 Reasons Drinking Water will Help you Burn more Fat and Lose More Weight Reason 1. Increase Your Metabolism When you are not drinking enough water your body’s metabolism will slow down. Since water is needed for almost all bodily functions, without the optimal amount your metabolism and other systems are not working at full potential. The slower your metabolism the less fat and calories you will burn. Drink more water to help improve your body functions including metabolism. Tip: Drink cold water when you are NOT training, as the body has to metabolize the water to bring down to body temperature increasing your metabolic rate. Reason 2. No Water = Increased Cortisol Lack of water consumption has anti-catabolic effects. When you are dehydration this stimulates catabolic (muscle destroying) hormones and increases the cortisol response to exercise. Cortisol is a fat storage hormone and responsible for weight gain, especially in the abs and waistline Reason 3 – Prevent Water Retention There is a big misconception out there about water retention and that if you if you drink too much water it will cause retention. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact it’s the lack of water that causes water retention. The reason is that your body sees the lack of water as a shortage and because of this will go into “survival mode” and will try to retain everything that the body has to offer. When you body is in this “mode” it will automatically store any water that you drink resulting in water retention You can prevent this my providing your with more than enough water it needs and in time it you will flush the excess water out of your body. Remember the lack of water can be a main reason your have retention so drink enough each day. Reason 4 – Prevent Fat Storage Water can help your body metabolize stored fat. When you are not drinking enough water each day your body does not have good enough water supply to perform it’s daily physiological tasks and is forced to take water from your bodies cells including fat cells. If your body is drawing water from fat stores then they are less likely to metabolize and burn off as energy, which results in more fat stores over time. The more water you drink and the better hydrated you are the less fat your body will have to store. Reason 5 – Keytones Keytones, a natural byproduct of fat burning, are flushed out of the body through urine. High water intake is necessary to flush excess ketones through the kidney to prevent the negative effects of their accumulation. By flushing them out, you will improve your fat burning process. Conclusion I hope this has helped you understand the importance of drinking water of you want to burn more fat and lose weight. You will no doubt burn more calories and fat, rid you body of toxins and waster, improve your metabolism and prevent your body from storing fat. Add decreased water retention and increased energy and the your reason for drinking more water on a daily basis is undeniable and must in your overall nutrition. H2O NOTE water does NOT include tea, coffee, juice, alcohol or anything else, which simply ‘has water in it’. If you are training in the gym you should in fact drink MORE than the recommended amount each day, as your body needs to stay hydrated at all times. Tips On When, Where and How You Can Incorporate You Water for the Day – Laura D – Fit to Eat • Immediately when you wake up • While you are getting ready in the morning • To and from work (on your commute) • While you are watching television or a movie • With your meals • At your desk • While you are in meetings • In place of coffee or soft drinks • When you are travelling – on the bus, on a train, on the subway • In your car to and from any destination Keep well hydrated by finding creative ways to incorporate water throughout your day. Here are a few ideas how to make sure you get your 10 cups a day:  

Funk’s Top 5 Power Foods For Fat Loss (Article)

Featured

Today I want to get you back on track with 5 of my Top 30 Power Foods you need to include in your diet and nutrition if you want fat loss. You know what I always say, “You can’t out train a bad diet”, so get your nutrition in check. If you look into my fridge, freezer and pantry at any time, you will always find the same 30 foods. Through years of competing as a professional athlete, becoming a certified trainer, preparing top-level MMA and sports athletes for competition, studying the best foods for fat loss, research and working with nutritionist and professional trainers, I found the same foods always coming up. My Power 30 food list is paramount when it comes to health and nutrition. These are the foods that will help you build more muscle, increase strength, reduce inflammation (thus help to prevent injury), improve your metabolism and best of all burn off unwanted fat to help you look lean, muscular and ripped. It’s no wonder at 44 years old I feel like I’m 20. These are the foods that should be in your kitchen at all times. Here are 5 of my favourite Power Foods to help you Burn Fat while feeding your muscles. Greek Yogurt This is a weekly staple in the Roberts household. There isn’t day goes by that we don’t eat Greek yogurt. This is a perfect source of protein with 0% fat. If you are have regular yogurt, fat free yogurt, whatever, GET RID OF IT NOW and head out to the grocery store to pick up some Plain Greek Yogurt. Most contain too many sweeteners, whether sugar, corn syrup, or artificial sweeteners. And most other yogurts are produced to appease the overly aggressive sweet taste bud and contain too much sugar to be considered healthy. Stick to plain Greek yogurt, It’s loaded with a lot more protein and healthy bacteria. 
Just watch for hidden sugars and stick to the “plain” 
flavors. Chicken Breasts Lean cuts of chicken breast provide your body with the nutrients, vitamins and proteins your body needs. Chicken is considered a lean meat and contain a high amount
of good quality protein. Protein is essential for muscle growth and repair. Chicken also contains the vitamin niacin that is essential for converting macronutrients into energy. Bananas High in potassium and vitamins. Bananas are a top source
 of potassium, a mineral and electrolyte. Consuming too 
little potassium can cause muscle weakness and cramps, fatigue and in severe cases, abnormal heart rhythms and muscular paralysis. As intense exercise and perspiration causes potassium loss, ramping up your potassium intake, particularly following physical activity is critical. Bananas also supply valuable amounts of carbohydrates, which is the top fuel source for your body and muscles. Greens – Spinach and Kale Green leafy vegetables contain a ton of nutrients including vitamin K, which help to build strong bones. Spinach is a
good source of many phytochemicals that are important for muscle growth and strength. It has one of the richest sources
of 20-beta-ecdysterone – a phytochemical that have anabolic properties. Spinach is rich in glutamine, the amino acid that prevents muscle breakdown. Spinach also contains octacosanol, a compound that has the ability to increase muscle strength. Kale, Swiss chard and collards are also excellent choices. Both are a great source of Carbohydrates. Almonds Almonds are high in protein, high in monounsaturated fat and are very filling. A quarter cup of almonds provides you with 8 grams of protein, which is more than an egg. They assist in blood sugar control and hence weight loss. Nuts are a great source of l-arginine as it converts to nitric oxide (NO) and this helps to improve blood circulation. Nitric oxide is a very popular supplement used in muscle strength and growth. BONUS POWER FOOD Water Stop drinking Juice, Pop, Diet soda, alcohol and Energy Drinks, that help tp make you super FAT…This is the most important food/drink on this list bar none. Since our bodies are made up of 70-80% water and you are training at high intensity, you must drink water to stay hydrated. Water is essential for proper digestion, nutrient absorption and chemical reactions. Water is essential for proper circulation in the body. The levels of oxygen in the bloodstream are greater when the body is well-hydrated. The more oxygen the body has readily available, the more fat it will burn to use for energy. Without the presence of oxygen, the body cannot properly use your body’s stored fat for energy. Not only will the body burn more fat when it’s well-hydrated it also increases oxygen levels; which means you will also have more energy. Water helps remove toxins from the body, in particular from the digestive tract. THIS IS A MUST!!!! That’s it! Talk about Powerful stuff, right? Let Power Foods lead you to fat loss and lean muscle growth!
