Eat Breakfast

Why Eat Breakfast?

Eat Breakfast unless you want to slow your metabolism and teach your body how to hold on to body fat.

If you want to SLOW your metabolism or you are a Sumo Wrestler:

1. Don’t eat breakfast. Sumo wrestlers never eat breakfast. This is a great way to slow your metabolism way down and will definitely ensure over eating later in the day.

 

eat breakfast
Those who skip breakfast
Consume:
40% more sweets.
55% more soft drinks.
45% fewer vegetables
30% less fruit

2. Eat only 1-2 meals each day. Sumo wrestlers get up early, work out and then don’t eat until late in the day. This way they will be starving and will eat anything they can grab and in enormous amounts. This ensures a great calorie surplus and maximum weight gain. When you eat a large amount of calories in one sitting, the body will use up what it can and then fill your extra energy reserves for later. When your storage gets full, everything left over is stored directly as fat.

3. Drink beer. Sumo wrestlers drink large amounts of beer with their meals. For a sumo wrestler, the bigger the belly the better!

Speaking of alcohol, this is an interesting Q & A from a ‘fat burning’ blog:

QUESTION: What about alcohol? How does that fit into your burning fat program? I am not talking binge drinking, just one or two a day.

ANSWER: Hi, A couple drinks on the weekend and or on special ocassions probably won’t have any major impact on your fat loss results (although I would encourage you to consider the mindset that EVERYTHING you do either helps or hurts).

A drink or two on ocassion is a part of enjoying life for many people, and it’s important to find lifestyle balance for the sake of your long term happiness and success.

However, I do not recommend drinking every day.

“A couple every day” adds a LOT of extra calories to your daily diet. If you’re talking about two 150-calorie beers, thats 300 calories extra a day or 2100 extra calories a week.

Multiply that out for a year and you have 109,200 extra calories! WOW! That’s potentially 31.2 pounds of fat in a year.

If you DO account for the calories in those drinks, then you have another conundrum – the alcohol calories displace good valuable food calories…

Drinking gives you empty alcohol calories with virtually no nutritional value (and some negative value in more way than one), while pushing out important vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, fiber and other good stuff.

Alcohol also inhibits fat burning. While your liver is busy metabolizing alcohol, it puts your fat metabolism on hold. That’s why I do NOT recommend any drinking when you are on a fat loss program (at least if you are serious about it).

When you are on a regular, year-round lifestyle/maintenance program I recommend that if you drink, you do so in moderation, keep it to special occasions or weekends and remember to factor in those calories to your daily intake.

By the way, there’s a major risk to drinking every day – even just one or two – that most people don’t even think about:

Daily drinking is habit forming. Anything you do every day easily becomes a habit that is difficult to break later.

On the other hand, if you could establish the habit of eating 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables and getting some exercise every single day, those would be habits worth forming!

The fact is, you can certainly get leaner while drinking, as long as you stay in a caloric deficit, but that doesn’t mean it’s the smartest thing to do for your body and your health.

4. Eat out. Many studies have found that people eating in a restaurant will eat 40% more food and 30% more fat then they would if they were at home. Sumo wrestlers like to distract each other while eating to make sure they don’t notice those “getting full” signals. They also always have someone else cook for them so they don’t pay attention to fat or ingredients.

5. Sleep after eating. When they finish their LARGE meals, the wrestlers will take a long nap. Going to sleep on a full stomach forces the body to store most of the calories as fat because it doesn’t have the ability to metabolize large amounts of food while sleeping.

eat breakfastIf you’re NOT a Sumo Wrestler here are Rules to Live By:

NEVER SKIP BREAKFAST: Break-fast. The first meal of the day jump-starts your metabolic rate. Make it a good one, rich with protein.

ALWAYS EAT AFTER YOUR WORKOUT: Called the “golden hour.” Replenishing your body immediately after exercise keeps your body burning fat and retains your muscle.

NEVER MISS YOUR MEAL BEFORE BED: Your body repairs itself at night when you sleep. Your body can only do this IF you EAT! Eat one hour before bedtime and keep the choice of your meal high in protein and keep it clean. No sugars or starches.

FUEL YOUR METABOLISM: It looks for food every 3 hours. So feed it and keep it as high as possible.

Eat often:
Food stimulates our basic metabolic rate. Frequent smaller meals rather than fewer large ones help to keep our metabolic rate high. A higher metabolism burns more calories throughout the day it also promotes our bodies to use rather than store fat.

Protein:
Minimum of 3-4 times daily. Protein stimulates your basic metabolic rate by almost 30% while carbohydrates and (healthy) fat lead to a 10% increase.

The more muscle we have, the more calories we burn. But, if we don’t eat protein we can’t build healthy muscle. A pound of muscle requires more calories per day to maintain itself (while at rest our body will burn more calories) while a pound of fat requires fewer.

HYDRATION: Drink water throughout the day. Our guideline is drink HALF of your body weight in OUNCES of water daily. (Increase 20% for heat. Increase 20 for exercise.) For AWESOME hydration check out what we drink….REHYDRATE.

SLEEP: The connection between sleep and weight gain is hard to ignore. Research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that women who are sleep deprived are a third more likely to gain 33 pounds over the next 16 years than those who receive just seven hours of sleep per night. And with all of the connections to obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure, and cognitive failure, the need to sleep goes far beyond just looking better and seeing results from your diet and exercise efforts.

The key to reaching your goals are to ensure that your body is receiving the nutrients it needs to promote burning body fat, building lean muscle and staying hydrated. So, what is your preference? Eat like a SUMO Wrestler or eat for healthy living?

Fat Muscle Ratio not Weight

Our Fat Muscle Ratio not Weight is Imperative for Good Health

The weighing scale may not lie; however, it may not

always tell the whole truth either.

In fact the prevailing wisdom today is that it’s by far, more important to have low body fat rather than low body weight to keep healthy.

lean muscle buen body fatBody weight by itself is not a very clear indicator of either health or physical fitness, much as we would like to believe it to be. This is because body weight alone does not distinguish how much of the weight is in pounds of fat or muscle.

However, body composition can help give a far more accurate assessment of both fat as well as lean muscles that personify vigor. This is why the popularity of body composition as a measuring tool for good health is steadily increasing since it can provide a more viable snapshot of the state of your body than the weighing scale.

In fact the ratio of muscle to fat is the main element of body composition and this ratio can and indeed does keep on changing throughout an individual’s lifetime. This is because aging and inactivity are both potentially capable of leading to an overall increase in total body fat.

A senior citizen for instance may well succumb to age-related muscle loss and the body may respond by increasing its fat deposits, without gaining any additional weight.  Also switching from let’s say, a highly active job physically to a more sedentary one could mean a gradual increase in fat without any major fluctuations showing on the weighing scale.

Many health practitioners and nutritionists tend to agree that excessive body fat is a grave risk to health and is often the root cause of many deadly ailments such as high BP, diabetes, stroke and Myocardial Infarction to name but a few.

This is why an increasing number of people are trying to lose weight rapidly from following crash diets to rigorous exercise regimes

Unfortunately, all this hard work and pain is undertaken to lose weight and become thin without even attempting to understand that being thin does not necessarily translate into being healthy.

Since popular misconceptions about that “ideal” body weight far outweighs the practical reality of our body composition, our obsession with weight and thinness can potentially lead to such eating disorders as Bulimia and Anorexia Nervosa.

Leanness of the body is infinitely more desirable than thinness.

In fact lean individuals may actually weigh more than the fabled ideal, but its more muscle and bone than fat and therefore, in the long run more conducive to health.

Every doctor, nutritionist and fitness instructor/personal trainer must ultimately be able to understand and eventually explain the important distinction between unhealthy thinness and a healthy and lean body.

A lean and healthy body can eventually be achieved though long term

lifestyle changes

And yes, that means saying no to fad diets and exercise regimes that may prove to be unsustainable in the long run.

So think of body composition (the amount of body fat vs the amount of body muscle) as a lifetime journey which includes ongoing fine tuning of our lifestyle.

no fad diet. sustainable eating. healthy body composition.
