Something I have become very interested in lately is so-called 'diet breaks' and how one can use them to optimise their fat loss efforts. 👇👇👇
******
Losing fat is no easy task. The more fat you lose, the harder it becomes. Depriving your body of energy (calories) drives your body into a state of panic. As a result, it will rev up a series of mental and physical defense mechanisms in the hope of trying to reverse your fat loss trend. 👇👇👇
*****
The more fat you lose, the stronger these defense mechanisms become. Up to a point, we can sort of fight through them, through sheer dedication. But, up to a certain threshold, a TIPPING POINT is reached in which these mechanisms become so strong, we no longer can sustain our fat loss efforts. 👇👇👇
******
Diet breaks might prove a useful tool in our fat loss arsenal to keep these defensive mechanisms at bay, preventing us from reaching this tipping point. Thus, in turn allowing us to achieve more sustainable, longer term fat loss results. 👇👇👇
******
There are no set rules for diet breaks. Some might see a diet break as a ramping up of calories back to current maintenance. Others, will use diet breaks as a way of ramping calories up even higher. How you implement diet breaks will depend on how progress is moving along and how you are feeling. Both mentally and physically. Do you feel like you are reaching your tipping point? Then, a diet break might be needed! 👇👇👇

Key Points: 1) For those looking to maximise their muscular hypertrophy gains in response to resistance training, one should aim for a daily protein intake range of between 1.6-2.2g/kg/day.  2) Single servings of between 20-40g of fast-acting WHEY protein…
