Top #10 Reasons We Love Carbs for Fat-Loss

Carbohydrates - The ‘Performance Fuel’ Macronutrient - or the devil for fat-loss?

What high performing athletes use to fuel their success in sport, what ‘Gym Junkies’ should be using to fuel their workouts, but what most people blame for their lack of results..

Unfortunately there is a major misconception in the fitness industry that “Carbohydrates” = Fat-Gain

Some would even describe ‘Carbs as being the devil’ - “As soon as I eat Carbs, I just blow up”

For most of us (barring any major intolerance’s or insulin sensitivity issues) the very reason you may not be hitting your performance goals in the gym, or body composition goals in the mirror is because we aren’t eating enough Carbs.

Not only are most Carbohydrate foods delicious and life without them can be miserable, there are actually #10 very valid reasons to back up our opinion:

Eating Yourself Lean: The PPS Approach to Body Transformations

THE CLASSIC APPROACH TO GETTING LEAN

In the Body Composition & Body Transformation world, the most common method to induce fat-loss is to ‘Eat Less & Move More’.
This is typically based around creating a ‘Calorie Deficit’
i.e. eating less food than you burn to encourage your body to use body-fat for fuel.

The only problem with this method in the long-term, is that the body will always adapt.

Which means; you have to continually reduce calories, or increase exercise to be in a caloric deficit and eventually you start to hit rock-bottom, causing your results will plateau.

Why Diets Don't Work: How To Beat The Binge And See Results That Last In The Gym

Have you ever gone through the pain and frustration of losing a lot of excess body-weight in an effort to feel: healthier, more comfortable and more confident?

You did all the right things the media tells you to do…

You cut out sugar, stopped eating carbs after 6pm, cut yourself off socially and only ate ‘healthy’ food…

You went all in and for a short while, it worked.

The weight melted off and for what felt like a split second, you saw big changes in the mirror.

But something was wrong; you felt hollow and empty inside and felt the results didn’t quite match the extreme effort you put in. Then unfortunately the results you did see, didn’t last...

How to Deal With Stress and Still Achieve Your Goals in the Gym

Stress can be a results killer…

If you want to lose body-fat or gain muscle, it’s paramount to keep your stress levels under control.
Maybe it’s financial stress, relationship troubles or your boss has been on your case all day.

Either way, the release of the stress hormone - Cortisol, can lead to poor decision making and leaves you much more vulnerable to fat-gain, especially around the ol’ mid-section.

After a long stressful day of work or a break-up, skipping the gym and binging on Netflix, while downing an entire packet of Tim-Tams can seem pretty damn appealing right!?

Beyond Weight-Loss: What is Body Recomposition

Have you ever lost a tonne of weight in an effort to ‘look good naked’ or improve your self-confidence?
