Yes, You Can Eat Carbohydrates At Night

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m talking about 3 new nutrition tips for a healthy lifestyle.

I’m very excited about today’s topic on the 3 new nutrition laws to Live Lean.

Back in 2012, I was asked to speak at Canada’s largest fitness conference in Toronto.

I called my speech the “7 Nutrition Laws To Live Lean”.

This is where I shared 7 of my best nutrition strategies to Live Lean.

Fortunately, my speech sold out quickly.

The Science Behind Nutrition Continues To Change

Fast forward to today, and I’m happy to say that I still agree with, and follow, all 7 of those nutrition laws.

When it comes to nutrition, this is an accomplishment, since the science behind nutrition is continuously improving.

I’m a lifelong student of the health game, and will continue to grow as I test more approaches on my body.

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.

The Journey To My Healthy Diet Routine

Before I share the 3 new nutrition tips for a healthy lifestyle, let me first mention this.

3 New Nutrition Tips For A Healthy Lifestyle

With that said, let’s go ahead and dive into this episode about the 3 new nutrition tips for a healthy lifestyle.

#1. Eat Leafy Green Vegetables With Your Protein

Best High Protein Foods For Weight Loss And Muscle Building

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.

Say hello to fat loss.

However, 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 an acidic forming food.

Therefore to balance the meal, we always want to have alkaline forming foods with animal protein.

Next time you have a chicken breast, add in some Popeye approved spinach.

#2. Eat Carbohydrates At Night…When Needed

What Is Carb Backloading And How Does It Work?

One of the most common things I hear is, will eating carbohydrates at night make you fat?

I just have two words for you.

It depends.

If you’re not active, and the majority of your excess calories are coming from carbohydrates, then yes, carbohydrates at night, for many hormonal reasons, are not good.

However, 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.

This will return your body from a catabolic breakdown state into an anabolic growth state.

In other words, if you’re working out at 8pm, eat your carbohydrates at night.

#3. Do Not Heat Plastics

The Best Water Bottle To Drink Out Of

I see this so many times at my gym.

People will bring their post-workout food in plastic tupperware, then heat it in the microwave.

When heating plastic, you’re running the risk of leeching harmful chemicals like BPA into your food.

BPAs has been shown to cause all kinds of hormonal issues in your body.

In a previous video about how to naturally get rid of man boobs, I talked about how BPAs can mimic estrogen in the body.

Say hello to man boobs.

In addition to this, 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 storage containers.

Then you can stick those bad boys in the dishwasher, since ain’t nobody got time to hand wash dishes.
