Cheat meals for optimizing metabolism

Let’s draw a line in the sand right now. Cheat days or meals full of bad food choices will slow down the rate of fat loss by screwing up fat cell function, hormones, setting off food allergies and more. Diets promoting these “cheating” strategies are just telling people what they want to hear. The negative impact on fat burning can last for several days or longer which ends up undoing weeks of hard work. A high calorie day increases feelings of satisfaction and limits cravings making it much easier to execute a nutrition plan consistently. *

Adjust portion sizes accordingly based on body size and appetite. Eat until you feel satisfied, but do not go overboard to avoid stomach upset and fatigue.

Sugar time

Yes we include desserts and items with sugar into the high calorie day when appropriate. Picking items that do not set off allergies and are free of trans fats for example are very important to support client success. Adding 6 Alpha Omega M3 to a meal containing desserts is crucial for keeping fat storage hormones in check while interfering with fat storage on the cellular level.*

push up

Taken between meals and around training the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis proprietary ratios make the brain believe a massive amount of food has been consumed. As a result metabolic rate increases, but there is nothing to burn except stored fat since the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis have no caloric burden.*

Surge Rates of Fat Burning with a High Quality Caloric Intake

Following 10-14 days on the KISS fat loss nutrition plan the stage is set perfectly for the high calorie day to surge fat burning. A metabolic revival takes place as the body receives signals that a huge amount of food is available. The large intake of food shuts off starvation alarms the body naturally has in place to slow the rate of fat burning. The body then feels free to burn a significant amount of stored fat as fuel. Metabolism increases not only to handle the new influx of food, but remains at peaked rates in case other large meals are consumed on the following days.*

The ultimate fat burning breakfast

A fasting status is highly effective for body fat loss due to distinct metabolic and hormonal improvements that take place. Reduced caloric intake is a part of the success equation but it is relatively minor compared to the metabolic and hormonal improvements which allow the body to burn more stored fat as fuel.*

Moving your first meal later to be a brunch is high advantageous on a high calorie day to promote a fasted state from the time period following dinner the night before.

 Big Time BBQ

Grass fed beef is an excellent choice for high calorie meals as the superior dietary fat content can support fat burning. Steaks, hot dogs, hamburgers, lamb, bison, pork loin, wild caught seafood and more can be consumed in mass quantities for a very satisfying meal. This is a great time to invite family and friends over for a BBQ which supports body fat loss and high levels of performance.*

Other menu options:

Vegetable Salads and bean salads
Grilled vegetables
Extra Virgin Olive oil based dressings and marinades
Bean salad without added sugar, soybean oil or trans fats.

Two Big Meals are Better Than Several Smaller Meals

Consuming two large meals allows the body to stay in high rate of fat burning for a large part of the day. Having two large meals instead of several smaller meals is beneficial by keeping insulin levels in check over the course of the day. Insulin is a powerful fat storage hormone that must be kept in check. More meals means that insulin levels are increased frequently even if they include good food choices.*

Timing is Everything

Schedule one of your big meals about an hour after training to maximize your fat burning and muscle repair benefits. The timing is especially important for men who are trying to gain muscle while losing body fat. Alpha Omega M3 consumed with the meal following training optimizes insulin sensitivity which is crucial for fat burning ongoing. The special ratios of essential fats Dr. Serrano has developed drives raw materials into hungry muscles instead of spilling over into fat cells.*

Fat Cell Cleansing Strategies

Cleansing the Fat Cell
There are many misconceptions about body fat- it is made up of billions of fat cells, some we are born with and others created by bad food choices such as corn oil used in frying and Trans fats within a countless number of packaged goods you have consumed over your life time.*

Cleanse fat cells

Trans fats were designed to extend shelf life and to lower the fat intake on food labels leading consumers to believe items are “diet friendly” choices. Nothing could be further from the truth as in actuality these fake fats are very hard to get rid of. Doughnuts you consumed years ago and last week have left a trail of bad materials that you must clean up to restore proper fat cell function. Otherwise progress will be painfully slow. *

Burn Down The Fat Cell Warehouse

Once you have a large warehouse of fat cells your capacity to store body fat is greatly increased forever. You can manipulate cell size by making them collectively shrink and that is how we lower body fat levels. Furthermore, fill fat cells with their desired essential fatty acid materials found in Alpha Omega M3 clinically developed proprietary ratios and this cements a powerful barrier to future body fat accumulation even when diet is less than perfect for stretches of time.*
