Diving right in.
Kap, best time to workout for me due to family job etc is in the early am and have been doing it for years. Since you have tried it on occasion how do you “wake up” nutrition wise to have a good workout? Not much time if you have to make work out at 8 to make a full breakfast. quick coffee and fruit?
I’m typing and smiling, so try not to be sensitive.
If you’re looking for sympathy about having to get up early to make breakfast, you’ve come to the wrong man. There is no chance you’re going to get me to let you off the hook with that nonsense. If time is the issue, get your ass out of bed 15 minutes earlier, sauté some shredded butternut squash, then scramble with three eggs and booya, you’ve got a delectable, quick, well-balanced breakfast. Or, sure, quick coffee and fruit (rolls eyes).
I went to the doctor, and she told me to lose weight it’s 80% diet 20% exercise. I would love to know your opinion on this theory.
You know my take on scales, right? Anyhow, if weight is still your focus, there is no exact percentage of energy allocated to exercise and diet that is universal. However, if you ingest more calories than you burn, you will have difficulty losing pounds. In essence, you’ll have to burn more or eat less. From authoritynutrition.com:
If we take in more energy (calories) than we expend, we gain weight. If we expend more energy than we take in, we lose weight. This is an unbreakable law of physics and isn’t even debatable.
All of that said, do you think it makes sense to try to break things down into percentages and count calories or is it more prudent for you to select healthy foods and be consistent with an exercise program of any kind? I’ll present you with this challenge: Eat only animal flesh, fruit and veggies with zero processed foods while exercising regularly. I bet the farm you’ll achieve your goals while becoming a healthier individual.
What is on your mind?
