On today’s episode I’m talking about 3 new nutrition laws to Live Lean.
Welcome everyone back to Live Lean TV, I’m your host Brad Gouthro, the #1 expert teaching you how to Live Lean 365 days a year.
I’m very excited about today’s topic.
Lets talk about 3 NEW nutrition laws to Live Lean.
About 3 years ago I was asked to speak at Canada’s largest fitness conference in Toronto.
I called my seminar, 7 Nutrition Laws To Live Lean.
Fortunately my seminar sold out quickly.
During my speech I shared with the audience 7 of my best nutrition strategies to Live Lean.
Fast forward to 3 years later and I’m happy to say, I still agree with and follow all 7 laws today, which when it comes to nutrition, is an accomplishment.
The science behind nutrition is continuously improving.
This means some things I’ve recommended in the past have changed based on research and from my own personal experiences during my journey to Live Lean.
I’m a lifelong student of the health game and will continue to grow as I test more approaches on my body.
So before I share the 3 new nutrition laws to Live Lean, let me first mention that if you want to watch my original 7 Nutrition Laws to Live Lean seminar video, there’s a copy of the digital download DVD in my store at LiveLeanTV for 85% off to viewers of this episode.
Only $7. Go check it out.
So lets go ahead and dive into this episode about the
By now, most of us know that protein is essential to build muscle which then increases your metabolic rate, thus burning more calories throughout the day.
Hello fat loss.
But just because you’re slugging back a bunch of chicken breasts, it doesn’t necessarily mean your body is absorbing and benefiting from all that protein.
Not only can leafy green vegetables help digest protein better, they’re also very alkalizing.
Even though animal sources of protein are highly recommended in the Live Lean diet, they are considered acid forming foods. Therefore, to balance the meal, we always want to have alkaline forming foods with animal protein.
So next time you have a chicken breast, add in some popeye approved spinach.
One of the common things I hear is eating carbs at night will make you fat.
So is it true?
I got two words for ya: It depends.
If you’re not active, and the majority of your excess calories are coming from carbohydrates, then yes, carbs at night for many hormonal reasons is not good.
But if you’re already pretty lean and your workouts are later in the day, you should be consuming carbohydrates in your post workout shake and the following whole meal to restore lost glycogen, and return your body from a catabolic breakdown state into an anabolic growth state.
So if you’re working out at 8pm. Eat your carbs at night!
I see this so many times at my gym. People will bring in their post-workout food in plastic tupperware, then heat it in the microwave.
First off, I’ve talked about it before, stop using the microwave.
Secondly, when heating plastic, you’re running the risk of leeching harmful chemicals like BPA into your food. BPA has been shown to cause all kinds of hormonal issues in our body. I’ve mentioned it in a previous video about how BPA can mimick estrogen in the body. Say hello to man boobs gentlemen.
Thirdly, don’t put your plastic tupperware in the dishwasher. Heat and plastic are not your friend.
Do yourself a favor and replace your plastic tupperware and glasses with glass. Then you can stick those bad boys in the dishwasher, cause ain’t nobody got time to handwash dishes.
