5 Reasons Why You Can’t Tone Your Stomach

By Jamie Houghton, Head Coach LPT

Summer is quickly approaching!

You’re ready to expose that slimmer leaner body that you’ve working on in the gym since January 1st

And by now you’re meal prepping routine is like a slick military operation…

Oh…

It’s not? And you’re not ready to start revealing parts of your body in this glorious weather??

What happened?

Somehow, swimsuit season sneaks up on us and all of a sudden you’ve got less than a month before your holiday to get that “beach body”

You look in the mirror and think…

“Shit. I’ve let myseflf down. Again”

The answer…you jump on a carb free, calorie restrictive, bland crash diet for 2 weeks to magically shed those extra 20 pounds

Reading this chances are you already know that isn’t going to work.

You don’t need me to tell you that

But don’t fear. You’ve got another month before the official start of summer. And two months until the summer holidays.

If you didn’t get my hint ^^^ This is it. Time to get serious.

It’s not going to be easy to reduce your mid-section in a few weeks.

But luckily for you…I’ve removed the guesswork for you

And if you follow these 5 tips…I promise your stomach will shrink, you’ll feel less bloated, you’ll be more confident and you’ll probably have to buy a new swimsuit!

===============================================
HERE ARE THE 5 REASONS YOU CAN’T TONE YOUT STOMACH
===============================================

“Abs are Made in the Kitchen”

– says every personal trainer, everywhere….

You’ve heard it before. But what does it REALLY mean?

Before I go any further…there’s 1 KEY FACT I want to point out…

EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT!

We all process, metabolise and react differently to nutrition

So if you’re trying to find that meal plan that promises to get you beach ready in 2 weeks…save yourself the stress and don’t bother.

There isn’t ONE healthy fool-proof diet that everyone should eat…

However, there are universal dietary principles everyone needs to follow if they want to lose fat and get that flatter stomach…so let’s see what they are…

Training will definitely help with your fat loss goals but if you’re eating dessert “because you earned it” then don’t expect the hard work to pay off

1. Carbohydrates and Sugar Raise Your Blood Sugar

It’s a fact that carbohydrates raise your blood sugar. These foods include: starches, grains, fruit, refined food and of course…sugars

Some carbs are more aggressive than others but quite simply, if you’re not losing inches around your mid-section then there’s a pretty good chance you’re eating a diet that raises your blood sugar too much

2. Unused Carbs and Sugar are Immediately Stored as FAT

Your body uses carbohydrates and sugar in it’s most simple form…glucose

Glucose is stored in two places (1) your liver and (2) your muscles.

Unfortunately (just like your iPhone) you only have limited storage space…

So any excess sugar has nowhere to go…so it gets converted to and stored as fat.

3. Insulin is workhorse

Insulin is the hormone responsible for stabilizing blood sugar. It’s role is to remove glucose from your bloodstream.

The more carbs you eat, the more you start to desensitize your cells to insulin.

When this happens, glucose stays in your bloodstream longer and has nowhere to go…

Excess glucose is converted into…Remember? Yes. fat!

I recommend eating non-starchy vegetables as your main source of carbs because they have the least impact on stimulating insulin.

You’ve gotta trust me on this…you DON’T need your bowl of porridge to “fuel your day”

Instead go for something like 2 eggs scrambled with some spinach and tomatoes

4. Eat FAT to Lose FAT

Wait a minute…Fat doesn’t make us fat?

In a word…exactly!

Most of the fat that you eat — especially if you want to lose weight — should come from unsaturated sources (like fish, seeds, nuts, leafy vegetables, olive oil, and of course, avocados)

From here on in…avoid “low-fat” or “0% fat” at ALL COSTS…seroisuly!!

When food manufacturers removed fat from their foods, they had to load the foods with sugar and salt.

So swap your fat free Fage for the tastier FULL-FAT stuff!

Fat Burns Fat…

Fat stored in your body around the belly, thighs, or butt can’t be burned efficiently without “new” fat to help the process.

On top of this…fat will keep your feeling fuller for longer (no more mid-morning cravings!)

I’m going to stop there on the topic of FAT. I could honestly spend an entire day with you just talking about the benefits of FAT.

And lastly…

5. Track everything

Your body keeps and accurate journal regardless of what you write down or log in your app.

There have been a tonne of studies that prove without doubt that simply by recording what you eat and drink you subconsciously eat better.

Who wants to look back at 5 days of toast, sandwiches and pizza!?

So even if you’re not following a strict diet plan I recommend that you record everything that you’re eating and drinking.

Then after a week, look back through it and see where you went wrong and where you did well.

Then write a plan for the followig week…

You don’t ahve to carry a pair of scales with you and religously weigh every ounce of food

But it won’t take you long to realise that you always slip up on a Wednesday afternoon…or perhaps you could have 1 less glass of wine on a Friday night.

Whatever it may be…the bad patterns will highlight what you need to change.

Whenever I work with a new client the first thing I get them to do is just record their diet. I don’t even tell them what to eat at this point.

It’s an awesome habit to get into early on.

So there you have it ^^^

6 Surprising Reasons You Can’t Stop Snacking

By Jamie Houghton, Head Coach at Lifestyle Performance Transformations NCC

Do you ever get those days where you just CAN’T STOP snacking? You get to the evening, look back at what you’ve eaten and you feel pretty fed up about it.

Hunger is a sign that your body needs food/liquids so you go about your day.

Snacking-Time-Should-Be-Correct-800x400But what if you really struggle to control your hunger…?

What if you snack even though you’re NOT hungry….?

^^^We’re all guilty of that one!

But why?

Well in this post, the 7 Surprising Reasons You Can’t Stop Snacking, we will help  you tweak some of your daily habits to keep your appetite in check, eat when you’re actually hungry AND be able to start seeing some results…

1. You’re not eating often enough

It may sound obvious but if you only eat large meals hours apart, then believe it or not but this actually makes you feel hungrier. When you go too long without food your stomach panics and releases hormones that leave you feeling famished.

Try eating less but more often…have a meal or snack every three to four hours. Also it’s not a bad idea keep an emergency snack on you, like a small handful of nuts in some tupperware.

2. You’re not getting the right nutrients

Foods that keep you feeling fuller for longer have three components…

  1. Fiber
  2. Protein
  3. Healthy fat

All three can help slow digestion, which keeps blood sugar stable and keeps you full for longer. Aim for at least an average of 30 grams protein p/meal and don’t be afraid to add healthy fats to your diet!

The beauty of this approach (focusing on the few most critical factors) is it does the work for you, meaning you DON’T have to rely on will-power in order to stick to a healthy eating plan like the ones we teach at LPT.

For example most people are unaware that their first few alcoholic drinks are not fulfilling a craving for alcohol but one of hydration. So next time you get home from work after a stressful day, before you crack open that bottle of red, try downing a pint of water and THEN decide if you still crave that glass of the good stuff! You WILL be surprised at what happens.

3. You’re dehydrated (and confusing thirst for hunger)

This leads on from point umber 2. Quite simply as clever as our brains are…sometimes yours can confuse hunger for thirst!

If you’re starting to feel peckish…chances are you’re already dehydrated!

Aim to drink 3 litres of water daily…alternatively you’ll know you’re drinking enough water when your pee is light yellow or clear. We even give our members our urine colour chart within our 6 week welcome packs to help them establish where their hydration is at!

4. You’re not paying attention to what you’re eating

Eating mindfully – something that we coach you on as part of our “6 Week Transformation Challenge” (CLICK HERE  for more info) is something that means actually paying attention to what you’re eating, instead of shovelling it in your mouth as you’re running off to do something else!

Easier said that done…I know! But it is important for your body to register when it’s hungry or not and shovelling your meals down doesn’t allow your body to do that!

5. Yohomer-snacksu’re eating too many simple carbs and sugars

You know what carbs I mean…white bread, pasta, pastries and sugar will make it impossible to feel satisfied. All of these cause your blood sugar to rise and then an hour or so later it will crash rapidly causing your body to crave more fuel…more sugar!

This is a bad cycle to be in and unknowingly you can pile in way more carbs than you actually need!

 

6. You’re stressed

Simply put, stress increases your body’s production of the hormone cortisol, which boosts appetite…and when you’re stressed reaching for a healthy high protein snack is probably not your first thought!

Feeling less stressed will help control your hunger. However it’s not always easy controlling your stress which is why we teach you stress management tips and tools on our “6 Week Transformation Challenge” (CLICK HERE for more info) something that our members report back is that these tools ACTUALLY work!

So there you have it!

I hope that’s given you some clarity…

It will be worth re-reading those 6 points again and making notes on which ones relate to you specifically (maybe all of them!)

Nutrition coaching is a huge part of our coaching program at LPT giving you knowledge to get some amazing results on your weight loss journey.
