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?

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now
