Did you know that a “food rut” can create a fat loss plateau? Even though you’re eating super clean and healthy day in, day out, if you find yourself eating pretty much the same thing day in, day out you can be experiencing, what my friend Dave Ruel, author of Anabolic Cooking, “Ana-Metabolic Adaptation”.
Having looked over hundreds of client food journals over the years, this is one of the most common diet mistakes I see.
I never knew the technical term for this, until I saw an article my friend, Dave Ruel had written on this topic which I am going to share with you.
I hope you find this information as informative and fascinating as I did! Enjoy
3 Must-Know tips to fight “Ana-Metabolic” adaptation…
Do you know what the “Ana-Metabolic Adaptation” phenomenon is?
Well, in layman terms this is basically the ability your body has to adapt to certain foods that are consumed over and over again on a regular basis.
To give you an example:
If you eat pretty much the same type of foods day in and day out, your body will get used to them and it will consequently slow down your metabolism.
Now this SUCKS because a slow metabolism means you’ll lose lean muscle and gain bodyfat…
The exact OPPOSITE of what we actually want to do!
So here are 3 easy tips that you can start using right away to help avoid this dreaded “Ana-metabolic Adaptation” from ever occurring in your body…
#1: Vary Your Macro-Nutrient Sources!
It is absolutely critical that you frequently rotate your food choices. For example, do not rely on chicken breasts, canned tuna, and protein shakes as your ONLY protein sources.
Make sure to get a wide variety of protein from other food sources such as lean cuts of beef, lamb, pork, wild game, etc. Include all kinds of fish and seafood in your nutrition program. Also make sure to include eggs / egg whites and dairy products to get a wide spectrum of high quality protein sources.
#2: Use Spices!
Not only will spices add taste, flavor, and excitement to your meals. But the latest research has revealed that cooking with spices like Cinnamon, Garlic, and Ginger can jack up your metabolism, control your blood sugar, and improve your insulin resistance.
All of these things will help you strip away those excess pounds of stubborn blubber while ensuring that the calories you eat get shuttled towards building lean rock hard muscle mass!
#3: Strategically Time Your Nutrient Intake!
It is a proven fact that consuming the right nutrients at the right times, can more then DOUBLE the Anabolic and Metabolic response you get from the foods you eat.
Basically it’s not just “What You Eat”, but “When You Eat It” that has a HUGE impact on your muscle building & fat loss results!
Now I can’t go into a whole lot of detail about all the specific times in this short article, but I will say this… First thing in the morning when you wake up and right after your workouts are 2 of the most critical times of the day when you NEED to consume high quality muscle building nutrition.
So there are 3 killer tips that you can use to keep your Muscle-Building and Fat-Burning hormones running at their full optimal Anabolic and Metabolic capacity!
