Another Q&A today with my boy Anthony J.
Your stuff is fantastic. Since implementing your stuff my life has EXPLODED. Girls can’t get enough of me, I’ve gotten a raise at work and I feel freakin’ awesome all the time. No aches, no energy crashes – just pure badassary.
Here’s my question: I’m struggling to lose the last 10 pounds, forever. I have dieted down before and gotten in great shape, but I always out it back on. So, how the heck do I lose those last 10 pounds… FOREVER.
AJ, my man… way to take action brother!
You have become a true symbol for everything I preach here at fitness advice daily.
What your asking for the answer to mastering your own body. And here’s the secret…
Figure out what is SUSTAINABLE.
Those who achieve their body composition goal and maintain it are those who can stick with the changes they make in the long run.
Sure, you can cut huge amounts of carbs and fats, basically surviving on only protein and stimulants, and you’ll lose fat pretty fast.
But such an approach can’t be sustained, and it’ll make you feel like crap.Then once you’ve had enough you’ll rebound the other way – the yo-yo phenomenon.
Instead, choose an eating structure that fits your natural tendencies, and find foods that’ll help you reach a better body comp while being enjoyable.
I like to be in a calorie deficit and very strict monday to friday mod day so then I can splurge the friday – sunday night. My clients also enjoy that method as well.
Another thing I have been testing is that, we (my clients and I) complete a lengthy reverse dieting phase – which has given amazing health benefits and seems to guarantee that the fat loss is indeed forever.
