One of the most common nutrition “myths’ is that carbs make you fat.
The TRUTH is that you can eat a LOT of carbs and stay lean, just like Shaun Hadsall and myself.
So the great news is that you can even have cheat days and never have to worry about storing carbs as fat.
You just need a couple of simple tricks to make this work.
And when you use Shaun’s 3 easy strategies, not only does it make diet “sustainable” — it can accelerate your fat loss.
But you can’t go low-carb all week and then go on a food bender every weekend. You will NOT keep your muscle and lose belly fat that way.
It’s simply NOT going to work.
You’ll send your body all the wrong signals and messages for fat loss.
Strategic carb cycling. It PREVENTS all of the dieting downsides from happening.
BUT again…you have to “time” the carb-cycling properly.
Study after study shows that over 90% of people who attempt a “low carb” or trendy diet gain all or more of their weight back within weeks of losing it.
That’s because most people time their carbs and other foods the WRONG way and they wonder why the scale won’t budge.
So here are Shaun Hadsall’s 3 “carb timing” tricks that you can use to prevent carbs from being stored as belly fat or butt jiggle:
1. A GREAT time to eat carbs is in the Morning.
Each morning, your metabolic rate is higher and your insulin sensitivity is peaking “naturally”. Plus you’ve fasted all night so there’s room in the tank to store more carbs.
2. A BETTER time is 3 to 4 hours before exercise.
This will provide sustained energy to prevent muscle loss and prevent the carbs from spilling over because you’re using them as an energy source and to replenish depleted glycogen from the workout.
3. The BEST time is post workout.
Your muscle are like a sponge that’s been rung dry and they want to “soak up” extra nutrients – especially carbohydrates. This meal should contain your largest carb serving for the day. Just make sure you have at least 20g of protein with it.
You see, when you understand how to time your nutrients precisely you’ll discover how you can use carbs to master your fat-burning hormones and control your metabolic rate.
But if you’re not sure how to combine carbs with other specific foods or how to use it in conjunction with the right exercise — your fat loss could be dead in the water.
That’s why I recommend you check out my buddy, Shaun Hadsall’s science based Macro-Patterning(TM)food method.
Research PROVES you can now eat LOTS of your favorite carbs and NEVER store them as fat on your body.
In fact, you can legitimately “force” stubborn belly-fat to be your “go to” energy source using the EXACT blueprint Shaun lays out at this link below:
