Diet tips for losing stubborn bodyfat.
Dieting to lose fat can be a slow and frustrating process. There are so many different diet plans out there that it can be confusing to figure out the right diet for you.
In today’s video I’m answering a question from Norman who writes:
I’ve been receiving your youtube videos for a while now, and I finally decided to write to you for some advice. I’m 63 years old and have lifted weights on and off through the years. Lately I’ve become more conscious about my diet and nutrition. I’ve discovered there are a lot of products, plans, and workouts out there which are confusing to say the least.
What kind of diet should I do to maximize my progress? I’m trying to eat more protein and less carbs, but I still seem to gain weight in the abdominal and waist area (the curse of being an endomorphic). Any advice would be helpful.
Increasing your protein intake and lowering your carbohydrate intake is generally a step in the right direction. This is a good fat loss diet for men who have a lot of belly fat. Generally overweight men have a low tolerance for absorbing high amounts of carbohydrates.
But you don’t have to avoid carbs entirely. You can still eat complex carbohydrates and burn bodyfat, as long as you eat your carbs at the right times.
Right after exercise when your muscle glycogen levels are depleted your body can absorb and utilize carbohydrates for recovery and growth, rather than storing them as excess bodyfat.
So make sure to save your high carb meals for post workout. Either after you have done a cardio workout, weight training workout, or combination of both.
For the rest of the day keep your carbohydrate intake low and focus primarily on lean protein, green vegetables, and healthy fats. This will keep your insulin and blood sugar levels stable and help to optimize fat loss.
