Hope you’re all having a great week so far.
I’m coming back at you today with another addition of weekly knowledge bombs from some of the brightest minds in the industry.
So, let’s let their work do the talking, shall we?
1. The Truth About Fattening Foods: They Don’t Exist! by Jordan Syatt
The idea of deeming foods “good” and “bad” or “clean” and “dirty” has been worn out.
You see it all the time: people will look at a food, or even an entire food group, and consider it fattening. Not only is this wrong, it’s extremely misleading, and it often coerces people into being overly restrictive in their dieting, which will inevitably lead to failure.
There’s no “good” or “bad” foods, just “good” or “bad” diets. You have to look at the dosage and context.
This article by Mr. Syatt does an excellent job of explaining why there’s no such thing as fattening foods, and what you should really focus on when trying to lose fat.
Note: You can also watch his free 60 minute nutrition webinar here (I’m working my way through it now, and it’s excellent).
2. Conditioning: Just Make it a Damn Habit Already by Jason Ferruggia
We often get caught up in traditional methods of cardio, while ignoring high intensity conditioning methods that can go a long way towards improving athleticism and accelerating fat loss.
Jason explains why you should make conditioning a habit, and he gives some examples that you can easily implement into your regimen.
3. The Single Most Important Rule of Fat Loss by Armi Legge
Somewhat related to the first article on this list is an excellent post by Armi Legge, explaining why calories are the single most important factor with regards to fat loss.
I’ve written on this topic in the past, and it’s good to see more and more people explain the research rather than just rambling on about the claims of their favorite gurus.
To lose fat, you must be in a caloric deficit. Simple as that, and Armi explains the reasoning behind it.
4. Sustainable Fat Loss Documentary by Elsbeth Vaino
I’m always down to support a good cause, and even more so when the person behind the cause is one of the most knowledgeable and genuine trainers in the industry.
Elsbeth Vaino is attempting to raise money in an attempt to film a documentary showing the progress of two individuals attempting to achieve sustainable fat loss, and she needs everyone’s help.
With all of the hype behind shows like The Biggest Loser, people are beginning to develop an unhealthy and skewed perception of what it takes to lose fat, and equally as important, keep it off. In this documentary, Elsbeth is going to display a realistic view of fat loss, in an attempt to show viewers what it takes to achieve sustainable fat loss and change lifestyle habits permanently and for the better.
