Nutrition And Fat Loss 101 – Foundation Of Nutrition

It’s been a couple of weeks since holding my recent Woman Incredible Transformation Workshops, and I must say I’m quite blown away by the fact that I’m still receiving feedback about the changes attendees have noticed in just a short period of time! Clothes looser, energy higher, confidence rising – all that good stuff!

Which leads me to you – I don’t want you to miss out so I thought I’d just bullet point some of the key topics we covered. Let’s call it the Body Incredible Nutrition and Fat Loss 101: short, sweet and to the point! There are three key areas I’d like to share with you:

  1. Foundation of nutrition
  2. Fat loss kickstart
  3. Cheating your way lean

foundation of nutrition

1. Morning Kickstart: start the day with 2 glasses of tepid water, one with real salt added and one with fresh lemon. Taking fiber and glutamine can help get you started and aid detoxification (fat loss!). Golden rule: eat protein within 30 minutes of waking, ideally with a small amount of good fat.

2. Structure: when starting a new fat loss or nutrition regime structure is key, particularly if you have a stressful lifestyle. Aim to eat 4-6 protein and green veg based meals, with a small amount of good fat at each. Keep reading for the rules on carbs … and bear in mind that less structure may be fine after you’ve established those initial patterns.

3. Hormones (cortisol and insulin): while all of your hormones are relevant to your health and ability to lose fat, cortisol and insulin are particularly worth knowing about. This is because they both tend to be driven out of balance by the typical busy Western lifestyle.

Cortisol is a stress hormone designed to energise you for short periods of time, but when life is always GO you tend to release excessive amounts of the stuff, which can promote fat storage. Detox cortisol by limiting stimulants after lunch, winding down without TV or computer in the last hours of the evening, take regular time out for yourself, and eating wholesome organic proteins and plants.

Insulin is released to help your body deal with incoming sugars. It becomes a problem when you are repeatedly eating sugar-based foods, which is basically anything that is not protein or fat. This even includes ‘healthy’ carbs, as well as the more obvious sugary or baked foods. If your diet is carbohydrate based and lacking in protein and fat you will have a tough time managing insulin and blood sugar levels and you will signal your body to store fat! This is especially true when it comes to choosing your breaky; hence my earlier note on protein. You can manage insulin levels by switching starch based carbs for more greens, increasing protein and good fat, taking fiber, and minimising processed food.

Simple stuff, hey? Almost too good to be true, I know but honestly – if you implement just these 3 foundation strategies you WILL notice a tremendous and lasting change in your energy and your ability to burn fat! Stay tuned next week for part 2 – Fat Loss Kickstart!

And remember –

Life is Now. Press Play.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.

    Hi Kat,

    What is the impact on the body of consuming protein within 30 minutes of waking?

    And does this mean if you exercise first thing you shouldn’t do it on an empty stomach?

    Thanks,
    Pip

    1. Kat says:

      Hi Pip, I’m not a fan of working out on an empty stomach unless most life-stress is low! It elicits a cortisol response which can trigger your body to slow fat loss and even to gain. One reason to eat protein within 30 minutes is to kickstart your metabolism, but it’s also useful for resetting and balancing neurotransmitters like dopamine and seratonin. I hope that helps!

  2. Lou says:

    I forgot to eat my protein before my workout this morning (no idea why, maybe my head is already on holidays, because it was sitting ready to go in the fridge!). I definitely noticed a massive difference, once you start you can’t stop!!! I felt so sluggish and couldn’t lift as much, didn’t realise what was different until I was on my way home! Protein in the morning has probably made the biggest difference to me and my body overall.

    1. Kat says:

      Excellent Lou, always good when you can notice the difference!

  3. Deb says:

    Hi Kat,
    Do you have a sample menu you could show me, even just one day. Just so I feel confident that what I am doing is correct. I have read your book and searched your website but can’t find one. Really appreciate it 🙂
    Ta,
    deb

    1. Kat says:

      Hi Deb, have you been on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/womanincredible?) I regularly post pictures of what I eat in the album ‘this is how I eat’. I’ll put up a sample menu plan as a blog post next week 🙂

  4. Bonnie says:

    Can you tell us more about the benefits of taking Glutamine? Thanks Kat!

    1. Kat says:

      Glutamine relines the lining of the gut and so it’s one of the best things for digestion. It also aids in growth hormone production, so it helps you get (and stay!) lean.

  5. charity says:

    Do you recommend tip #1 (tepid water in the morning)for someone with chronic diarrhea? I’ve tried this in the past and its just makes for a crampy belly.

    1. Kat says:

      OH, definitely not! Chronic diarrhea is often parasite based; I’d get that checked out.
