turkey-thanksgiving-diet

So what’s my strategy today?

How’s this. I don’t have one.

If I see it. And it looks good. I’m going to eat it.

I eat clean and exercise hard all year. So I figure I have some wiggle room.

Plus, if I were to go crazy and eat twice as much as I normally do. Say an additional 3000 calories?

SO WHAT!

I’d gain less than a pound of true body weight because it takes 3500 calories to build a full pound.

I can live with that!

Question:

Do you exercise? Are you following my HIT Protocols? Are you unafraid of 8 minutes of hard exercise?

Good!

Then do a brief – intense routine before feed time today. And I mean REALLY go after it.

Then man up and fast before meal time (yes, this will hurt a little bit)

Then, when the food comes, dial in on the turkey.

Fill your gut up with the protein that your muscles are literally starving for.

What will this give you?

Big time Protein Synthesis! (AKA muscle accumulation)

And all those carby foods you’re going to ingest today?

Those will spike insulin. Fuel anabolism. (more muscle)

And the growth hormone stimulated by your pre-meal exercise session? (muscle again).

Natural body builders do this stuff all the time. They embrace this (post exercise) high calorie feeding strategy.

Wait a minute?

Did I just say strategy? Hmmm???

I guess I really do have one after all (:

Bon appetit!
