This time of year even my best clients get a little uptight at all of the excess drinking and eating going on.
The fact is there are just a few big eating days on the calendar vin the next six weeks.
Throw in one or two Holiday parties and that’s still just a handful of meals.
There’s even a way to approach these 5-6 meals that you can get even leaner.
First all the other days you need to stay pretty tight on your eating plan, stay hydrated, and hit your workouts as consistently as possible.
Then those 5 meals you’re going to…
Cheat your way thin.
That’s right you’re going to strategically, purposefully cheat on your diet.
I want to you to cheat on your diet and cheat hard!
You will literally cheat your way thin.
Here are the 3 main reasons this works.
#1 Boost your Metabolism
Any fat loss diet in some way creates a calorie restriction.
After a while your brain thinks “I’m starving” and slows down your calorie burning metabolism.
Hitting the buffet and those Christmas cookies will provide a shock to your system that keeps it revving the rest of the week.
#2 Boost Your Success Rate
At first I only saw this with my clients then the research came out that backed this up.
When you KNOW you can have your favorite food at least once a week. You will be able to make it through the cravings.
When you know you’ll be able to have the food you crave in the future your compliance goes up today.
#3 Boost Your Fat Loss Hormones
Leptin is a metabolism boosting fat burning hormone involved in the sensation of hunger.
When you’re on a calorie restricted diet, your levels of Leptin slowly fall. Lower leptin levels mean slower fat loss.
Temporarily kick in more calories and your leptin levels rise again, increasing the amount of fat you’re burning.
I do recommend 2 things to make this work best this Holiday season.
1. Pick your specific days/times that you have events/parties
For example: Saturday night Christmas party and Christmas eve dinner with the family.
That way you don’t get tempted to just graze for a few days which is not what we want here.
And you’ll feel more in control.
2. When it’s on-it’s on. No limits no guilt.
These cheat meals are for you to take a break. So take it.
I’ve had clients drop 5 to 15lbs even 20lbs during the biggest weight gain time of the year, the next 6 weeks.
Not in spite of the cheating but because of the controlled and planned cheat meals.
They were also able to enter the New Year with renewed focus and purpose.
The cheating coupled with a smart plan during the majority of the week works to accelerate your fat loss.
And when you see results faster in the mirror, in your clothes, and on the scale you’ll stay motivated and on track.
It can be done, and you can do this.
P.s. Don’t wait until it’s too late to get your body back. Get the coaching, workouts, nutrition and support to get the results you need.
