7-Day Fat Loss Guide

Had a great time in Mexico last week, and now I’m off to LA to a Richard Branson charity event AND a trip to Bill Phillips’ house. He’s the originator of the modern-day Transformation Contest, and I interviewed Bill a couple of months ago.

I’ll be hanging out with a bunch of fitness folks too, like Mike Geary, Joel Marion, Vince Del Monte, Isabel De Los Rios, and John Romaniello.

So I will bring back some awesome transformation secrets.

Reference:
Obesity (Silver Spring). 2010 Sep 16. The Effects of Consuming Frequent, Higher Protein Meals on Appetite and Satiety During Weight Loss in Overweight/Obese Men.

Researchers from The University of Missouri and Purdue University studied 27 overweight/obese men (age 47; BMI 31.5). Subjects were randomized to groups for 12 weeks that consumed an energy-restriction diet (i.e., 750 kcal/day below daily energy need) as either

a) higher protein (HP, 25% of energy as protein, n = 14)
b) normal protein (NP, 14% of energy as protein, n = 13)

I.e. For the HP group, a 2000 calorie diet would give 500 calories from protein (125 grams of protein)
I.e. For the NP group, a 2000 calorie diet would give 280 calories from protein (70 grams of protein)

Plus, at week 7, subjects consumed their food 3 times per day (3-EO; every 5 h) or 6 times per day (6-EO; every 2 h), in randomized order, for 3 consecutive days and appetite and fullness were studied every waking hour on the third day of each pattern.

Results:
The HP group experienced greater fullness throughout the day vs. NP.

When compared to NP, the HP group experienced lower late-night desire to eat and preoccupation with thoughts of food.

Within groups, the 3 vs. 6-EO patterns did not influence daily hunger, fullness, desire to eat, or preoccupation with thoughts of food.

The 3-EO pattern led to greater evening and late-night fullness vs. 6-EO but only within the HP group (P < 0.005).

Conclusions:
Collectively, these data support the consumption of HP intake, but not greater eating frequency, for improved appetite control and satiety in overweight/obese men during energy restriction-induced weight loss.

Trainers should have a Workout Checklist

Stop having useless conversations about what was on TV last night or about the weather. If I had a dollar for every time I had to listen to that I would have a lot of money – enough to buy Bally the Dog some amazing dog treats and plenty of peanut butter.

But that kind of talk is useless and training conversation should not revolve around what was on TV last night or the weather.

You should be focused on the client and on knowing everything about them that is going to allow you to have an amazing training session with them, such as:

  • Their energy level
  • How much sleep they got
  • Their emotional state
  • Their nutrition in the last 24 hours or over the weekend
  • Their physical fitness level
  • Any new injuries
  • And anything that you need to know before you get into the training session.

Make a checklist to make sure you go through every single one of these important topics.

Q: Could you recommend any new exercises to build separation in the chest?

Answer:
You simply need to build more chest muscle. I would work on dumbbell chest presses and db incline presses, using a variety of tempos and using bodybuilder methods like squeezing the muscle at the top of the movement. But make sure you do an equal amount of rowing exercise for each chest press.

Reference:
Am J Clin Nutr 91: 1342-1347, 2010. Does hunger and satiety drive eating anymore? Increasing eating occasions and decreasing time between eating occasions in the United States

Researchers from the University of North Carolina studied meal frequency trends in US children and adults using cross-sectional studies of 1977 to 1978, 1994 to 1998, and 2003 to 2006 in 28,404 children (2–18 y of age) and 36,846 adults (19 y of age).

Results:
The number of Eating Occasions increased over the previous 30 y among all ages.

Energy intake, particularly from snacking, increased for both groups in all percentiles of the distribution.

The time between EOs decreased by 1 h for adults and children (to 3.0 and
3.5 h in 2003–2006, respectively).

Of great concern, the percentage of snacking occasions that consisted of beverages only increased considerably among children.

Conclusions:
US children and adults are consuming foods more frequently throughout the day than they did 30 y ago.

  • I have been following a high protein three meals a day plan for over nine months now, and it really does help with keeping food obsession at bay. I do everything I can to make sure that I always eat my meals at the table in a relaxing atmosphere, and this particular brand of discipline has brought me more peace with food. In modern life however, many people believe that they are forced to eat on the run.

    • Nice Catherine, thanks for the feedback! Keep up the great work.
