Heard of this – its not what you eat but the time you eat?
It’s all about how to let your body use more fats as energy to burn out those stubborn fats in your body! Now i am going to unveil to you how it is done!
So here is a simple story by me on how to burn more fats.
For example, you are going out shopping today, the item you are buying is $50 and your wallet only got $25, so naturally you will go to the bank and withdraw another $25 to purchase that item right? So if you are eating food before your workout, even worst high carbohydrate food! Your Wallet will be full! Minimum withdrawal from the bank (stored energy (fats)). Which is not what we want to achieve.
Your body will start leaning out on the arms and followed by your legs then your body, how gauge if the diet is workout is by the vascularity of my arms. This is something i read from the book, your body fats is stored in a way that you must be able to escape from danger if needed. So if thinking logically, the best place to store your fats will be the center. So arms, legs then tummy.
To Optimize fat burn, here is my routine.
5am – consume 5gram BCAA 2.5 gram glutamine
515am – workout
615am – consume 5 gram BCAA 2.5g glutamine
10am – first meal
I always like to give my body a few hours buffer after workout to optimize fat lost, after workout your body is looking for energy to burn. But there is also a lot of other saying that immediately post workout you must consume protein and other stuff as it is the anabolic window. You just got to try everything and see what produce the best result for you.
Always keep an open mind and make some gains!
Recently i am really addicted to getting more vascular.
How can you get more veins to show?
high protein low carb diet
it will help your body to use more fats as energy instead of using carbs. This is especially helpful is you workout fasted in the morning, working fasted in the morning is said to be able to increase fat burn by 20% more than normal workout timing!
shred more fats
the main reason why your veins is showing is because your fats is thinning out. you hardly see fat people with veins right.
take some Nitric Oxide supplement like arginine product
Arginine is a vasodilator. it helps to relax the blood vessel and increase blood flow.
if you are lifting heavy with proper form you will be putting the muscle under a more stressful environment in turn tearing more muscle fiber. To recover yourself during workout the body will call more blood to flow to that particular muscle group (the pump). therefore it creates more vascularity.
Doing intermittent fasting for 16(fasted)/8(feast) hour or sometimes 18/6 hour. I dont have a fix plan it really depends on how hungry i feel each day.
i really do feel more vascular now and more definition is coming out. weight did increase by a bit. but normally we dont only go by how much weight you increased, it is not that accurate become what we want now is only muscle gain.
muscle gain and fat lost so weight will be hover around the same. if my prediction is right, after dropping a few more percentage of body fat, we weight should start to rise. Shall see how it goes!
Should you replace your meal with mass gainer or protein shake? The answer is no, you still need to get your vitamins and minerals from the food that you take in. Protein powder and mass gainer is a supplement it is suppose to be an addition to help with your diet and not to replace it! Same as meal replacement powder it will be good to use it on a 2 day on 1 day off basis and only use it to replace your dinner.
