Philosophy
The individual is the basis for all exercise and nutrition recommendations. We maintain precise records for each client, this allows us to make educated adjustments when needed. We are constantly searching for more effective ways to accelerate fat loss, improve athletic performance, and increase strength.

If it can be improved, we will experiment and try to improve.

Intermittent Fasting for the Busy Person

 

Swimsuit weather will be here within weeks. If you have not been diligent with your diet this winter, I’ve designed a simple plan that can jumpstart body fat loss.

This menu is designed for those on a tight schedule and it does not require a lot of planning. If you want to get lean, but you don’t have time to prepare multiple meals or eat 5 times/day, intermittent fasting is an effective way to lose body fat. 

This program is not intended for the competitive athlete or advanced trainee who trains 6+ hours/week.

The rules:

  1. Eliminate all added sugars and sweeteners; do not consume any food or drinks that contain added sugar (naturally occurring sugar in fruit, potatoes, and rice are ok).  Remove all sugars from your house; give them to people you don’t like.

  2. Eliminate all processed grains and flours; including bread, pasta, crackers, baked goods, cereals, etc.…

  3. Skip breakfast and sleep an extra 30 minutes. Breakfast is not as important as once believed.

  4. Make protein the priority with each meal

  5. You will eat two main meals + 1-2 high protein snacks.
