How adding workout food can actually help you eat less...


Knowing the structure and seeing how more smaller bursts of food in a day is pretty smart.


I do want you to consider that you cannot ADD food to a diet that's mindless eating and expect you get a body composition/fat loss or weight loss result, the laws of thermodynamics don't help you there.


Rigid eating times is not helping you either.


-- 7am breakfast till 12pm is 5 hours - on a pitty cup of tea and some toast - it won't last. You probably burned 3-500 calories just being asleep.


-- Lunch at 12pm - brill! but I'm being good... a wrap and some crisps... but again, it's a long time till dinner.


-- Dinner at 8pm is EIGHT HOURS LATER and if you're active after work this is where chocolate bars start looking real tasty. Blood sugars low, you can't be arsed, there's nothing in the house so pass the Balti House menu.

Eat until stuffed... The cycle goes again.

What we really find is that by having food and a few calories around your workout helps you know that food is coming, you're not hangry and you can have nice food to help you get through a workout because when we exercise we are using a lot of nutrients, hydration, calories and carbohydrates to fuel it.


- Kvarg and dates

- Bagel and nut butter

- Whey and carb powders

- Cream of rice


... just no high fibre or spicy/flavoured foods - I don't want you burping up pesto mid WOD.

PS: No carbs around training will just make you a crap human.

By thinking of the food you've got, you have less cravings, you probably start to make better food choices.


You also don't get derailed driving past McDonalds next to the gym because you rebalanced your blood sugar when you finished.


How this works is by helping you feel better so you're more motivated to keep eating well and not get hangry, tired and de-motivated... it makes the gym easier to do and you look forward to it.

You're more consistent, 7 days a week, you don't need discipline, you have a better handle on your nutrition.
