“Scott, I need help surviving the holidays and your advice for the best approach to lose body fat during the New Year. The last five years have been tough as I have gained body fat during the holidays and struggled tremendously to lose body fat despite a lot of work into the New Year.” ~ Jamie
Jamie, the holiday season is joyous and dangerous for many reasons. You can eat big time during a few holiday meals without gaining body fat if you follow the proven strategies Dr. Serrano and I assembled. Taking the time now to consider new strategies for January is very smart. I would highly recommend the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition Plan which fits perfectly following the holidays to transition the body quickly into burning stored fat as fuel efficiently.
Having the right nutrition plans in place for the New Year relieves stress and builds confidence. 4 Cycles of the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse and Day 22 Carb Load build tremendous metabolic and hormonal momentum for fat burning over a 88 day period. Email Scott@infinityfitness.com for free copies of both plans today.
Dr. Serrano and I have over a year of data from thousands of people who successfully executed the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse and feel very strongly that sustainably raised foods are very important tools for fat loss success. The greatly reduced amount of toxins, lack of antibiotics and absence of hormones including estrogen within grass fed beef is highly advantageous. The fewer distractions the body has the better. Cleaning up the mess from all sorts of toxins within the modern food supply takes up resources the body could otherwise be dedicating to burning fat and driving high levels of energy.
Enjoy the Holidays without Gaining Body Fat
As mentioned previously applying the right strategies to a few holiday meals can prevent body fat accumulation even when many food choices are far less than perfect. The daily consumption of refined foods from the office break room, the holiday party circuit, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, The New Year and other events add up quickly creating a lot of problems. Sluggishness resulting from poor food choices leads to self-medicating with desserts which worsens the viscous cycle.
Eat Organic Before Holiday Parties and Gatherings
Before holiday parties eat a satisfying meal with grass fed beef, green vegetables, a baked potato and grass fed butter. Arriving to a holiday party with many bad food choices available is a bad combination. Notice the inclusion of the baked potato during the pre-party meal which many people would not expect. Aim for holiday items such as grass fed cheeses, meat sticks, pork rinds, vegetables and raw nuts.
Macronutrient Cycling for Fat Loss Success
I believe in varying the diet during the holidays to include some carbohydrate to serve as a macronutrient cycling protocol. Macronutrient cycling breaks metabolic staleness, increases fat burning enzymes and naturally optimizes fat burning hormones. A large percentage of the population gets stuck eating the same ratios of carbohydrates, dietary fats and proteins all year which gets stale quickly.
Exercise to Increase Endorphins
An intense exercise session a couple hours before a holiday meal or party not only boosts metabolism but also reduces cravings significantly due to a rush of endorphins. Based on over 20 years of experience working with clients; the more productive the training sessions, the higher the endorphin release.
