..Alot of people think that as a trainer I must be shredded and in serious shape... Truth is i'm not, im just normal... Being normal is ok in case you didn't know.
Normal people, like me, eat burgers, drink pints, eat chocolate and other stuff like that..
Do you eat burgers? You should!!
The trick is I know exactly how to get in shape for say Hurling season and over winter I generally 'let myself go' a bit... But not too far.. Right now my bodyfat is 15% and as the winter sets in and we are training with the club I will keep it there or else I get run down easily
Nutrition is about being consistent so that when you do have a burger, chips, pizza or a few pints there is no major knock on effect...
So i'm gonna send a few tips your way that help me stay in decent shape..
This first one is my golden rule!!
Fat loss tip #1: Load up on Protein
Every time you eat a meal and don’t consume protein, you’re increasing the likelihood that you’ll remain hungry and making it harder to keep on the weight. Here’s why: When you eat other foods—especially carbohydrates—you stimulate insulin, which spikes your blood sugar and makes it easier for you to pack on the pounds. Even so-called “innocent” healthy foods can be dangerous, like a piece of fruit. But protein is your nutrition solution. It controls your blood sugar, keeps you fuller, reduces hunger, and burns more calories during the digestion process so you can stay lean and fit and still enjoy your favourite foods.
The lesson: Carbohydrates are not bad. Neither are fats. But when you eat them alone, they set off a series of events that can sabotage your healthy eating habits. So whether you’re snacking or eating a meal, include some protein and you’ll drop sizes and defeat stress.
