Secrets of the leanest athletes on the planet

Today’s tip is used by the leanest athletes on the planets.
From professional bodybuilders to Olympic athletes and pro fighters.
It’s helped me get in the leanest shape of my life (single digits in body fat) without a whole lot of effort.
You eat four to five smaller meals per day.
That’s it!
It’s not rocket science.
It’s not a secret and it works like crazy.
Let me tell you WHY it works.
When you’re eating 4-5 small meals per day you don’t get over hungry which means you don’t overeat at meal times.
When you eat 4-5 small meals you don’t snack between meals (so it cuts out the junk).
And eating 4-5 meals raises your metabolism which means you burn more calories during the day.
But don’t take it from me.
Take it from the bodybuilders, fitness models and professional fighters watching their weights in the build-up to a competition or a fight…
This works!
Eating 4-5 meals per day helps you manage your appetite better and lose weight.
Now for the whingers, whiners and complainers who ‘don’t have the time’.
Weight loss obviously isn’t important enough to you.
This just a case of priority.
If something is important to you – you’ll make time.
You’ll get up earlier, you’ll sacrifice your crap TV or just make the time.
If you’re serious, doing this will stack the odds in your favor.
It is well worth the effort!
Me, I do this…
I make my lunch the night before or in the morning.
Sometimes my lunch is a portion of the previous night’s dinner.
Then I divide my lunch into two portions.
Now I have breakfast, two lunches and come home to an evening meal (that’s four small meals in one day).
If I want five I have a smaller evening meal and a healthy snack later in the evening.
Eating four to five small meals per day will keep your metabolism higher and your hunger pangs at bay.
It’s not that hard.

It is (however) a discipline thing.
And it takes a little preparation.
But it’s well worth it.
A stockbroker friend of mine cooks all of her meals on a Sunday and freezes them.
She’s organized, prepared and serious about losing weight.

How to Double your chances of losing weight

This is a good tip but not for the reasons most people think.

It’s a tip that doubles you chances of losing weight.
And it only takes minutes per day.

Are you ready?

You’re going to keep a food diary.
This isn’t about calorie counting.
Calorie counting is a non-sense.
It’s for people who want to obsess and fail.
And it’s totally unreliable.

Think about it.

Grow an apple in your backyard and compare it to an apple you bought from a store that’s been imported halfway around the world.
Do you think they have the same calorie content?

I doubt it.

Do you think they even have the same nutrients?

Highly unlikely.

Calorie counting is flawed at best. There are too many variables to make it accurate or reliable.

So give up on calorie counting.

Instead keep a food diary so you become conscious of what you are eating.

Now you don’t have to go crazy, you can do this in seconds.
Just scribble what you’ve eaten down on a piece of paper.
Like I said, this is about you being conscious about the food you put in your mouth.

It’ll make you think twice about eating.
That’s the key.
Thinking about what you eat.

It’s a proven fact that people who keep food diaries can lose twice as much weight as people who don’t.
Plus a good diary will help you identify and break bad eating habits too (especially those Achilles heel type habits).
Start it today. Star it right now, in-fact. There is no time like the present.

No tricks, no gimmicks, no magic tricks.

Just practical tips for melting body fat.
This is going to be a hard-hitting practical education in losing weight and getting in great shape.

We do practical stuff that WORKS and has evidence to back it up. There will be no fluff.

Get ready, because from now on you are about to embark on a journey to lose weight and get the real scoop of simple weight loss strategies.

First, I want to address this. We’re creatures of habit.
You wake up, hit the alarm and hit auto-pilot…
You have breakfast.
You brush your teeth.
You get dressed.
You go to work.
You come home.
You go to bed.
Then you do it all over again the next day.
Eating and exercising – getting fatter or losing weight — all boil down to the same thing.

We are creatures of habit.
Now you can use habit to your advantage.
Good habits help you get the things you want (and achieve the goals you have) quicker and easier.
There is a saying…

“The routine will set you free”

But it’s a double-edge sword.
It can help you lose weight or…
It can make you fat. Now I need your help here.

I need you to think long and hard about what I’m about to ask.
And be brutally honest with yourself.

What is your biggest weakness when it comes to your food?
Is it:
- Overeating at meal times
- Going without food for hours and then binge eating
- Snacking between meals
- Getting bored late in the evening before raiding the kitchen
- Opening the ice-cream and eating it ALL!

These are classic BAD eating habits.
The problem is these are bad habits we do without thinking.
We do them (almost) on auto-pilot.
The regret it afterwards.

There are plenty more but if you can identify your biggest weakness you’re on a winner when it comes to losing weight.
I used to be a terrible night time feeder.
At night I’d raid and re-raid the fridge, the freezer and all the cupboards.
I might start with having one cookie and finish the pack.
Or have a bowl of cereal. Then another. And another.
I did it when I got bored in the evenings, watching TV or surfing the Internet.
I didn’t need the food.
I wasn’t hungry.
It was just habit.
When I realized and ended it (and with a little exercise) my body changed drastically.
Now here’s your job.
Think long and hard (and be honest).
What is your weakness?
What is your Achilles heel?
Isolate it.
Zone in on it.
Then by either replacing it with a better habit or cutting it out completely – good things will start to happen.
Like losing weight, seeing results, burning body fat and living a longer, healthier and leaner life.
So today, that’s your task.
Discover and zone in on that killer habit.
It’ll be the start of a new YOU!
