My personal experience with skipping breakfast (pics included)

Breakfast sucks

I’ve said it once and I’ll continue to beat this in the ground that for fat loss eating upon waking up does not work for you trying to lose body fat.

I’ve even argued that eating every 3-4 hours isn’t necessary for fat loss either.

I know that this may go against a lot of main stream fitness media but hey if all that really worked we would see alot more lean gym rats than bloated puff balls with muscle.

This blog is really just to document my personal experience with skipping breakfast and just taking a break from eating on occasion.

 

Breakfast sucks

Month 1

Here is my back before I started this journey. Why am I taking progress pics of my back? Well to be honest my back is where I will see any progress first so this would be best and quickest way to asses this new style of eating.

In this pic was eating a typical bodybuilder style of eating at this point consuming 5-6 meals a day or eating every two to three hours working out 5 days a week with only two days of cardio. You can see that I do have some foundation there but not really any clean details or lines.

This was especially frustrating to me at this point in time because I lived by my meals and the clock, so it was ALWAYS on my mind. I’m sure some of you can relate to this.

Why you still don’t have abs.

This is part 1 of MANY that I’ll be doing dedicated towards PROPER core work 🙂

 

One of the most common questions that I get as a personal trainer is how can I get abs? I will say right off the bat that abs are built in the kitchen, you can NOT out train a bad diet, but this isn’t about the diet. This is about how I see many people doing crunch after crunch, leg raise after leg raise and not seeing anywhere near the development they want. So I apologize if this gets a bit nerdy but if you understand this you’ll be well on your way to getting those abs that you want.

What I’m about to share took me years to figure out; countless reps of crunches, leg lifts, sit-ups and other foolish ab exercises that I won’t even mention. I’ve been in the fitness industry for over a decade now and this information is over a decade’s worth of hard leaning.

Everyone wants them but how come they are so damn hard to develop!? With diet aside (though is my opinion its one of the MOST important figures in the abdominal equation), people are split up into two groups with ab work: first group does countless reps and spends hours a week on ab development. The second group hates doing them because of boredom or out of frustration because after being in group one they did not get the results they wanted. [Read more…]
