What is Starvation Mode?

what is starvation mode - fitness revolution rowlett

“If you don’t eat every few hours your body will go into starvation mode.”

We’ve all heard that phrase before.

Most likely you’ll hear your gym friend talk about how you have to eat every few hours or that your body will stop burning fat, you’ll go into starvation mode, your body will start eating away muscle, and you’ll quickly shrivel up and look like Christian Bale in the Machinist.

I’m warning you that I go a bit “nerd-mode” here, but let me start right off the bat and say this is complete crap and we’re going to clear some of this up.

5 of the most common questions I’ve been asked so far this year

1. What’s the best ‘diet’ pill?

I am, and at the same time, I am not surprised how much this question pops up, in fact the other day I had a lady do a consult with me just so that I could tell her what I thought the best diet pill was.

My response to her was “The best diet pill is the gym”.

Most people are paying 35ish dollars a month for a gym membership and your typical diet pills run you about the same AND I PROMISE there is NOT a diet pill that will give you the same results as busting your butt on the gym floor.  A diet pill is a supplement, meaning it supplements what you are already doing. If you’re killing it in the gym then you’ll notice a bit of extra results, but if you are not eating right and working out hard then you really won’t notice too much from a diet pill. [Read more…]

Some Intermittent Fasting questions answered

Some questions that I had about IF hope that you read the last IF blog and it may have peaked in your interest, heck maybe you even went a head and ordered Eat Stop Eat (highly recommend it). For today I’m going to go over some of my initial questions that I’ve had when I began researching IF.

 

You need to eat every three hours to keep your metabolism up:

This initial question was the my very first response to IF. I mean come on we have all heard it that we need to eat small frequent meals to lose weight, this has been posted in just about EVERY website, magazine and news series about weight loss. I remember this was the first thing that was ingrained in my head as a young gym rat.

Ever felt like your day was tied to the clock with food?

So I thought, heck I’ll find plenty of research proving that small frequent meals promote weight loss and honestly its was very difficult to find research that really supported this. Weird huh?

You see when I did find a journal article that was cited small frequent meals as a case for weight loss I did real rescarch into the journal article, otherwords not just was was quoted to me but I wanted to read it myself… the entire thing. [Read more…]
