Nutrition And Fat Loss 101, Part 5 – Cheating Your Way Lean

Today I want to talk to you really quickly about how to ‘cheat your way lean’. This is the 5th and final part in my Nutrition and Fat Loss 101 series, and I gotta say – it’s kind of my fave 🙂

First, a ‘disclaimer’ of sorts. I absolutely do NOT believe there is some kind of magic fast fix to full fat loss. Not least because (unless you’re starting out from being 95% clean) complete detoxification (if there is such a thing) and fat loss just takes time. Of course you can fast track things most certainly with a 7-day cleanse, but even then you’d want to know the ongoing tricks and techniques to be able to maintain it.

That’s what today is all about. The somewhat secret tricks and tips that myself and other coaches use to whip our own butts back into shape after some vacation time, or with our Biosignature clients who come in motivated and ready to transform their bodies.

sneaky tricks of the lean

We’re going to cover carb tolerance, managing blood sugars, and training.

1. Carbohydrate tolerance

The first thing I want to talk about here is carb tolerance. We’ve touched on this before, and it’s crucial to your ‘get-lean-fast’ success. The reason for this is that if you ARE carb tolerant then you have to be eating carbs to get lean, and if you’re NOT carb tolerant then you absolute should not be eating carbs to get lean. Unless they’re properly timed as part of your treat meals of course 🙂

Here are the rules:

  • You can determine carb tolerance by having your Biosig assessment done and looking at your sub-scapular skinfold. This indicates genetic carb tolerance.
  • Many carb tolerant people start have abused their bodies so much that they still have to steer clear of carbs until they ‘earn’ them. We determine this again by looking at the sub-scap measurement; under 10mm means you ‘earn’ your carbs. If you’re genetically carb tolerant then you will likely stay under 10mm easily even if other sites go up a little; if not then it could just be constant caution with carbs. The old adage of ‘all things in moderation’ simply isn’t true.

2. Controlling blood sugar

All good fat loss coaches understand the importance of controlling blood sugar as a means of helping to release stored fat. The truth is that even if you’re eating super low-carb your body might still be programmed to hold onto fat due to years of poor eating choices.

Here are some methods we like to use to ‘cheat’ when it comes to managing blood sugar and burning more fat:

  • Take a tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon or lime before eating
  • Use lemon or lime in your water or on food
  • Switch from balsamic vinegar to red wine vinegar
  • Use organic cinnamon liberally, in coffee/on food/in shakes. Yummy. You can even make a tea by boiling it with a pinch of sea salt. You can leave this to cool for drinking water, or drink warm.
  • Eat plenty of good fats, up to 6 times per day. Raw cream/butter. Organic coconut/macadamia/olive oils. Ghee. Avocado. Nuts and seeds if you can tolerate them.

3. Training

Sweat sessions are all well and good, but not necessarily the be-all end-all for fat loss. Here are the rules on training to get lean:

  • Alternate between periods (2-4 weeks) of high volume (high reps) and high intensity (low reps and heavy weights). This is crude, and individual needs may vary, but it’s a basic rule of periodisation. Doing 3 sets of 10 week/month/year in and out is a massive fat-loss FAIL.
  • Lift weights before and even instead of cardio. I don’t mean do cardio straight after weights, I mean weights are kind; cardio is supplementary.
  • For the rules on cardio, read here.
  • My suggestion is 3-5 roughly 45-min weight sessions per week. Morning is best.
  • 1 yoga or pilates type session per week
  • Cardio can be 2-4 times, and could include intervals/playing/outdoor stuff/strongman training/kickboxing and so on.
  • If you want to really fast-track things, then do your weights in the morning and your cardio 4-6 hours later that day.
  • Post workout nutrition is CRUCIAL. Read here for more on that.

Lastly, just to get your juices watering, here is a sample food day from the Woman Incredible Transformation Day. This menu plan was designed for a low-carb diet with timed PWO carbs. If you want to know more about the day, read the ‘PS’.

8am: Lean organic porterhouse steak with nut butter; coffee with cream and cinnamon, or green or peppermint tea.

10.30am: PWO shake with bee pollen

12 noon: Salmon with lettuce, cucumber, tomato, pickled red onions, green beans, sweet potato strips, olives, red wine vinegar and olive oil

3.30pm: Egg and vegie frittata with mushrooms, broccoli, green beans, asparagus

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my 12 month 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.

    Great article Kat. This lead me to some of your articles on supplements like glycine and glutamine, etc., and I was wondering what you think about the long term effects. Do you think it’s ok to take supplements like these… forever? Is there a need to pause them for a while? What about taking them just until you get to your ‘goal weight’ for those of us needing to lose weight?

    1. Kat says:

      With aminos I think it’s fine to take them forever; same goes for multis and essential fats and minerals. These are nutrients. Detox supps should be rotated 🙂 aside from that, take everything else only so long as you’d like to be healthy! I know that’s a bit ‘smart-aleck’, but true; I believe.

      1. Nate says:

        Ok, just to make sure I get what you’re spittin’, take them all forever, right? Also what do you think about creatine? I wasn’t sure I had ever heard you mention it.

      2. Kat says:

        Can be useful depending on goals

    hey Kat,

    I’m trying to eat as heathly as possible. I get almost 50 % of daily calories from healthy fats. Is it too much? I eat ca 1700 kcal per day, 100 grams or less come from carbs and the rest is from quality protein.
    Thanks!
