Carb refeeds are like magic when it comes to fat loss. If you follow a carbohydrate refeed properly, you’ll retain more muscle, lose more fat, and perform better over the long term. And they’re also a good way to enjoy your favorite foods on a semi-regular basis if done correctly.
Fat loss, dieting, getting shredded, leaning out, weight loss — whatever you want to call it, it’s all the same end-result. More muscle, less fat, better definition is what we all want.
Please watch this video as it’s the follow-up to all three of my clean-eating articles:
Clean eating – it’s a term we’ve all used and have surely heard a million times. We’ve stumbled upon it in the magazines, seen it in our favorite diet books and have probably even heard it on TV. Heck there’s even a magazine titled Clean Eating.
Now I have no problem with the magazine – the recipes are great(love them, by the way) and the pictures are something I enjoy looking at. I do, however, have a problem with the negative connotation it presents to the minds of many health and fitness enthusiasts and even some professionals unwilling to consider other ideas.
The first thing I want to ask is this: what exactly does clean eating mean?
If your goals are to be healthy, lose weight, or to build muscle, consuming 6 meals per day is the most optimal dietary approach. Period.
Many fitness gurus, fitness experts, registered dietitians and even some medical doctors suggest the 6-meal-per-day diet. If all these folks recommend such an approach, it must be the best and only way, right? Many claim this boosts one’s metabolism and increases the burning of body fat.
In the fitness world, it’s fairly common for people to hold onto a belief or dogma without much thought as to why. These beliefs are often slightly incorrect or just plain false.
Today I’d like to present you with some information, encourage you to look at it for yourself and then make your own decisions. Make your own choices after you’ve looked at some research.
All this takes is the willingness to open your mind, think freely and consider other ideas and possibilities. This is what I did over 2 years ago as I discuss in my article about meal frequency.
