Default I'm a personal trainer - 21-07-2014, 11:02 PM

Ok so figured as I'm going to try and become a part of this community I'll offer some kind of value. I'm a personal trainer and a pretty succesful one at that. Not only that I used to weigh 17 stone and lost my weight before becoming a PT so I have personal experience rather than just read books or put clients through what I have read in a book. I know what works. So if anyone needs a little advice just ask away. Obviously I'm not going to be typing up food plans and workout plans for you. People pay me for that but I don't mind parting with a little bit of knowledge

What's your view on intermittent fasting?

I've been trying to stick to this:

2 weetabix with semi skimmed at midday or 1

At 3 or 4 have some chopped spring onions, peppers, cheese, ham, grated carrots, brown pasta, salad cream & spicy coleslaw

At 6 or 7 have rice & spring onions, peppers, ham or chicken

Then that's it for about 18 hours

Of course, I have on odd cheat meal.

The purpose is to lose another 2 stone. I'm 12st now & was 14.

I haven't done my boxing training in a few months so I'm not sure there's any point in fasting if I'm not working out?

My general thoughts on diet are - There are no special tricks. I believe just eat normally. There are some basic rules you can follow such as... Have breakfast before you do anything else in the morning. Porridge is the best thing you can have. No sugar if you can take the boring taste. sweetner if not.

Try to eat small amounts every 2-3 hours.

Include a protein in every meal. Breakfast is always the hardest to get a protein in. No one can be bothered to cook. so protein shakes are good for mornings.

Make sure your meals are balanced, they should be mostly made up of vegetables. You should have some complex carbohydrates e.g. brown rice or sweet potato. and lean protein e.g. chicken, lean beef mince or steak, fish.

Try to eat 1.5 - 2 hours before working out. and eat immediately after

If your goal is weigtloss or to burn fat. I don't like the term weightloss. scales don't really mean anything. In simple terms all you need to do is create a calorie defecit. So just make sure you spend more calories in the day than you take on. You can still eat normally that's the good thing. And still have a cheat MEAL every now and then. I say meal because it is a meal. Not a day. You can pile on a shit load of calories in a day and undo a good weeks worth of work.

Anyway, they are basic rules I can go into a shit load of depth but you would be reading this for hours upon hours. Hopefully they will guide you in the right direction when it comes to diet.

One last thing regarding weight. Don't worry about what the scales look like. If you weighed 20 stone and looked like Vin Diesel would you care what the scales said? I'm 5'7 and weigh 13 stone. According to BMI I am just below Obese. Screw the scales. Tape measure and pictures are the best way to measure progress.

I know u are a personal trainer but a lot of those points have been disproven in labs. Intermittent fasting is scientifically proven to lose weight. Eating breakfast inhibits HGH working to full effect. And eating regularly does not increase metabolism. In fact the whole "u can only absorb 30 g of protein an hour" is not true as difestion can take hours.

The thing is with the fitness industry. Everyone says that everything is proven in labs. I'm sure you can find me articles that say you're correct and I will be able to find you the same to prove I am correct. However I speak from experience, both from what I tell my clients to do and from what I have done myself. I will not say anything else does not work but I do know that my approach to diet works because I've done it myself or am still doing it myself and have applied it to clients and have seen results.
