Want a Simple Guide to Calories?

Most people fail to understand calories, choosing to starve themselves in the classic "fad diet cycle"...


....drop calories, burn muscle mass, crave junk food, binge out, store fat, then wonder why they look worse year after year.

Calories are key when it comes to losing fat or building muscle, yet most people get confused and make mistakes.

I think the confusion arises because we expect what we eat to have a direct effect on how we look.

Eat less, lose fat, right?

MAN IS NOTHING ELSE BUT WHAT HE MAKES OF HIMSELF - Jean Paul Satre

The way you look and feel is a side effect of how you live your life.

For many people, it's easy to review whether you need to change directions in life or not.

Simply look in the mirror and ask, “am I happy with the way my body looks?”

Or, “am I living as my best self?”

This will give easy (if quite painful!) indicators of whether or not a new life strategy is needed.

It’s not enough to simply try to “eat better” or “stop eating crap”

You’ve tried that and it didn’t work!

In my experience, when somebody improves all areas of their life, it’s much easier to eat right, train hard, sleep well and feel great.

Eat on the go and stay healthy: PART ONE

When we eat on the go we tend to eat crap. We know eating junk is bad but we still do it!

This is a massive obstacle to being a healthy, strong and happy human.

So let’s talk about why this happens and how to fix it.

"yo Ant, you look like you've put some weight on!"


There was a time when that would be a compliment to me.


Back when I played rugby, being heavy was a GOOD thing.


Yet I struggled to gain weight past a certain point, and you may laugh at this, but if you haven't actually TRIED to get heavier in a short space of time, you'd be surprised at how tough it can be.


Anyway, I devised a wonderful meal plan:

5 ‘hacks’ to eat less

Let’s face it, getting leaner is a simple task. Eat less than you need.


A calorie deficit, that’s what we call it in the fitness world. 


Time and time again, scientific research shows a calorie deficit IS the be all and end all of weight loss.


But you know what, I find it hard to eat less than I want to eat.


So I’ve found a few simple tricks to eat less without noticing the effort.

Meditations on fasting.

Meditations on fasting.

For the past 4 weeks I've been steadily losing body fat. To do this I've used intermittent fasting and low calories.


Intermittent fasting (IF) is not a wonder weapon to beat all other diets. But I have noticed a few unorthodox benefits from using IF that I'd like to share with you today. 


First off, the only scientifically verified principle for stimulating your body to lose fat is being in a calorie deficit each day. Eat too many calories and you stay the same or gain fat. 


Second, there are many ways of eating less. Most diets, especially the mass marketed ones, are simply ways to enforce eating less. This is very important to your diet success and we'll come back to this point.
