How You Can Use Calorie Spiking To Get Lean!

Todays post is a guest piece by Amanda Brown of Fitlife blog and Promotion Fitness. This girl definitely knows how to tweak the system when it comes to enjoying life but still looking amazing – just check out the hot photos at her blog! Over to Amanda –

Even though we don’t really believe it’s possible, it’s the question we all long to hear a happy answer to: is there a way that you can get and keep hot abs but yet still get to ‘eat your CAKE’ and live a semi-normal lifestyle? Let’s hold that thought for a moment and think about this –

How many times have you been faced with a tempting treat that you just can’t seem to look away from? The saliva wells in your mouth and you imagine how good it will taste? Moments later damn it, your conscious kicks in. Then for the next couple of minutes you
battle it out between the instant satisfaction or the long term desire of a rippling six
pack. Because you can’t have both obviously. Right?

Well … there is a way that you can have both but it’s something not everyone talks about. Shhh, I am about to share some top secret information with you …

To be honest as a Personal Trainer I am a little nervous that this information will be misconstrued. So promise me before you high tail it to the nearest take-away that you’ll keep reading. I must firstly explain what it takes to get a six pack and ONLY when you follow these rules can you then ‘have your cake’.

the case of the never-ending diet

There are many different dieting methods that we are hit with on a day to day basis. Pills that expand in your stomach, meal replacements, food combining etc. Heck it is a confusing day and age to want to shed some weight.

But you know what?

Anything that offers a quick fix instantly rings alarm bells for me. I am all about going back to basics and eating the way nature intended which is why I choose to follow the Paleo diet, or otherwise known as the Caveman diet. It just makes sense to eat the way our ancestors did.

In the past we had little or no fabricated, processed highly toxic commercially made food and I find that it is no coincidence that going back to this style (Paleo or primal) of eating is also the fastest way to lose weight and feel great.

To quote Charles Poliquin, (one of the best strength and conditioning coaches on
the planet) on Paleo lifestyle eating:

‘If it does not fly, swim or run and it’s not green then don’t eat it.”

That is pretty much the crux of it with a couple of exceptions. I.e. you can still include coffee with 1-2 teaspoons of cream, fruit (preferably berries), nuts (avoiding peanuts), organic produced butter, organic 85% Chocolate (45g) and 1-2 glasses of red wine per day.

what about the caaaaaaakkeeee?!

When you are following this kind of eating plan and your diet is 90% clean healthy
foods it has been proven that by having a treat day can actually enhances your
weight loss results, hence the cake! It can help to plan your treat day and book it in your diary and keep all of your naughtiness confined within the walls of this one day. This method of getting to your rippling beach ready bod is referred to as calorie spiking and is a technique that bodybuilders have been using for years.

Food is like training. If you eat the same healthy food constantly your body will adapt. This treat day gives your body a shock and still keeps you heading for success. Of course there are some rules …

abs plus cake? it can be done if you follow these 4 tricks …

1. Treat Day NOT a Binge Day. On your treat day it is best to still have a high protein breakfast such as poached eggs with spinach and a little nut butter. This will give you a stable glucose response and help to give you a little more control over your food for the day. When having your treat meals sit down at a table to eat, once your butt has left the chair
game over.

2. Include Grapefruit Juice at Breakfast or Before second Meal. This is a technique that is discussed in Tim Ferris book The 4-Hour Body which helps to have a flat line effect on your blood sugar levels before eating a carbohydrates dense meal.

3. Citric Acid. Drink water with lemon or squeeze lemon juice on your food which helps to keep your glucose levels stable. You can use this especially on your treat day, however
there is no reason why you couldn’t do this on a day to day basis

4. Air Squats. You are set to turn a few heads on this one and perhaps a toilet cubicle may be the place for eating out. Another 4-Hour body technique which causes your body to produce GLUT-4 in your muscles. What happens is instead of the food or glucose going towards fat storage it is switched to going into your muscle and side steps weight gain. You want to complete 60-90 seconds of muscular contractions before and after you eat. So squats, wall push ups body rows… then back to the table, nobody will ever know the difference. Except your abs 😉

So there you have it – 4 sneaky tricks to let you eat your cake and have your abs! Just be sure to follow the rules. And let me know how you go!

What do you do to keep yourself sane nutritionally and yet still achieve your get lean goals?

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

Rebel.
Upstart.
Fuck the system; screw the rules.
Won’t do what they told me.
Too much.
Unreasonable.
Ridiculous.
Unprofessional.
Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.

All in on madness.
All in on crazy.
All in on chaos.
All in on the TRUE epic awesome ridiculousness and too much-ness of YOU.

REBEL MILLIONAIRE

Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,

And who are ready to do just that.
