So you want to lose fat: START HERE Part 3

So you want to lose fat start here | fitness revolution rowlettDisclaimer: This blog is intended for the beginner, NOT the advanced gym rat or seasoned fitness buff. When you have several years of successful dieting under your belt you think differently because your circumstances (athletic performance, could be one) are different. This is step one of many to get a beginner to where you are at now. We are just trying to master one thing at a time.


Ok now here we are getting into a bit of finer detail, so much so that I really don’t talk about it as much because, to be honest, it isn’t as important to the majority of people that are looking to drop some body fat.

In the big scheme of having a successful diet, calorie balance is number one and your macro breakdown is number two; so if you were to focus on those two principles right there you will have a GREAT chance of having a successful diet, or way of life depending on what your goal is.

Now here is the next question that people ask when it comes down to eating a certain way… how many meals a day should I eat AND what are the best times to eat them?

I’ve read some very silly rules of thumb from the “webgodz” that have ranged from: [Read more…]

Why Breakfast Makes You Fat

I’ll go on record to say that breakfast sucks. It, in my opinion, is the LEAST important meal of the day.

I’ll put it in bold letters…

BREAKFAST SUCKS

 

Oh boy, I’m sure I made some people mad. I can hear some of the criticism now…

Other trainers are saying: “WTF! That’s heresy!Breakfast makes you Fat - Fitness Revolution Rowlett

People: “But isn’t it the most important meal of the day?! This guy is weird… come on Stacey lets go eat a bagel and walk on the treadmill.” 😉

Do any of your know where the idea of breakfast orientated from? We grew up taught that breakfast was the most important meal of the day but who started that and WHY? Our parents? Who told them? Where did the idea of breakfast orientate from?

First the word breakfast just means “break-fast” duh I know, but wouldn’t that mean that your first meal AFTER sleep, no matter what time, is breakfast? What if I work a night shift get up at 4pm and my first meal is at 5, is that breakfast or dinner? What is I wake up at 8am and eat 30min later, is that breakfast? Or if I were to wake up and not eat till 3-4 hours later… is that breakfast? All of them are yes, breakfast just means “breaking your fast” no matter what time of the day you eat… its breakfast. In today’s society we have labeled that word as strictly a morning meal when in all reality it can be at any time.

Ok so why they hell did I tell you all that? Well it’s to get your mind in a different concept that the idea of breakfast is just your first meal of the day, whenever it may be, and NOT strictly a morning time ritual.  BUT… for this blog for fear of confusing you I’ll be referring to breakfast as your meal that is consumed within an hour upon waking.
