Nutrition Notes: Day 37/40. If you bought the 2-scan InBody package, please sign up for your re-scan ASAP! Sign up sheet is HERE. Today’s note is to get you thinking… What comes next? After 6 weeks of clean eating, you’ll probably want to enjoy a few treats this weekend. Beer, burritos, bacon, ice cream… what did I miss?!? On one hand, you’ve worked hard and earned it, so go for it! On the other hand, please don’t binge your weekend away! The best way to avoid this is to HAVE A PLAN. Start thinking about it now if you haven’t already.
- Weight Maintenance. If you’re happy with your nutrition challenge results, you may be ready to enter a “maintenance” phase. Add 150-200 calories back into your diet, at ~ 40% carb, 30% fat, and 30% protein. Eat mostly gluten free and sugar free, but an occasional treat (a couple times a week) shouldn’t cause you any problems.
- Continued Cut. If you’re seeing results but not at your desired leanness yet, maybe you’ll want to continue your “cut” phase for another few weeks. Enjoy a couple of treats this weekend, but don’t go overboard. On Monday, get back to business. If you think your macros need adjusting, schedule a 1:1 nutrition session so we can review them for optimal results going forward.
- Gain Phase. Maybe you want to pack on some mass in anticipation of our February lifting meet. You’ll need to add a significant number of calories and may want to hit extra lifting sessions and accessory work at the gym. If this is you, consider scheduling a 1:1 nutrition session so we can set you up with an eating and workout plan!
- Mental break phase. Maybe you found the challenge to be very hard work, and you want to stop weighing and measuring for a while. That’s fine too! We STRONGLY recommend that you continue to focus on food quality, centering your diet on vegetables, meat, GF starches, berries, fruits, etc. Enjoy an occasional treat (a few times a week), but try to keep sugar and beer from being a daily indulgence.
