RYAN SHANAHAN QUESTION AND ANSWER
Q – Hi Ryan…Is everyone following the diet and that is why the great results?
A – Thank you for your question Diane.
The somewhat “miraculous” thing about KettleWorx training is that when structured correctly, nutrition is incidental. Fat just burns off you anyway. With that being said, if you want the fastest and longest lasting HEALTH results, you should also dial in your nutrition. Here is my simple formula for weight loss:
#1 Rule of 3: Eat Every Three Hours
Eating increases your metabolism. So the more often you eat, the higher your metabolism will be. When you only eat once or twice a day, your metabolism goes into fat-storing mode as a means of survival. Feed your body constantly and you’ll feel and look better. You know who eats two meals a day? A sumo wrestler. Think about it.
#2 Stay Hydrated
I know there’s nothing sexy about drinking water, but about two-thirds of your body weight is water. If you don’t drink enough water, your metabolism will suffer and weight loss will be slow. As a rule of thumb, in between meals aim to drink half your body weight in ounces.
#3 Burn Fat with Protein, Greens, and Berries
Instead of counting calories, I focus on supplying nutrients. KettleWorx workouts are fast and challenging, therefore, it’s necessary to feed your body foods high in the Nutrients it needs for recovery. Proteins, Green vegetables and Berries are the superstars. Eat eggs for breakfast, mix berries into your protein shake and eat a salad at most dinners. Nothing works better, or faster, to reshape your body.
Finally Diane, each week you should have one “cheat” meal. This is just like it sounds. You can eat whatever you want, as long as you don’t stretch the “meal” into an all day marathon. As long as you don’t challenge your friends to see who can finish a large, pepperoni pizza fastest, you’ll be fine. In fact, one cheat meal each week will jumpstart your metabolism and gives your mind a break.
To Your Success,
