Four Principles of Failure-Proofing

 

  1. Make it conscious.
  2. Make it a game.  Measurement = Motivation
  3. Make it competitive
  4. Make it small and temporary.

 

Food Rules:

 

Rule #1:  AVOID “WHITE” CARBOHYDRATES

Avoid any carbohydrate that is, or can be, white.  The following foods are prohibited:  all bread, rice (including brown), cereal, potatoes, pasta, tortillas, and fried food w breading.

 

Rule #2:  EAT THE SAME FEW MEALS OVER AND OVER AGAIN

Mix and match from the folling list, constructing each meal with one pick from each of the three groups.

 

Proteins

  • Egg whites w 1-2 whole eggs for flavor (or, if organic 2-5 whole eggs, including yolks)
  • Chicken breast or thigh
  • Beef (preferably grass-fed)
  • Fish
  • Pork

 

Legumes

  • Lentils
  • Black beans
  • Pinto beans
  • Red beans
  • Soybeans

 

Vegetables

  • Spinach
  • Mixed Vegetables (including broccoli, cauliflower, or other cruciferous vegetables)
  • Sauerkraut, kimchee
  • Asparagus
  • Peas
  • Broccoli
  • Green beans

 

Eat as much as you like of the above food items.

Meals are approximately four hours apart.

Must eat within 1 hour of when you wake.  Preferably within 30 min. Try to eat within 1 hour of going to bed.

 

Rule #3:  DON’T DRINK CALORIES

Drink massive quantities of water as much unsweetened tea, coffee (with no more than 2 tablespoons of cream: suggest using cinnamon instead, or other no-calorie beverages as you like.  Do NOT drink milk (including soy), normal soft drinks, or fruit juice.  Limit diet soft drinks to no more than 16 ounces per day.  Wine is fine (red) up to two glasses of red per night, no more.  No other alcohol.

 

Rule #4:  DON’T EAT FRUIT

Only exceptions are tomatoes and avocados in moderation (no more than one cup or one meal per day.)

 

Rule #5:  TAKE ONE DAY OFF PER WEEK

Recommends Saturdays as your Dieters Gone Wild day.  Eat whatever you want.  Drink whatever you want.  Start the diet at least five days before your designated cheat day.  Paradoxically, dramatically spiking caloric intak in this way once per week increases fat-loss by ensuring that your metabolic rate (thyroid function and conversion of T4 to T3, etc) doesn’t downshift from the extended caloric restriction.

 

Common Mistakes and Misunderstandings

 

MISTAKE #1:  NOT EATING WITHIN ONE HOUR OF WAKING, PREFERABLY W/IN 30 MINUTES

 

MISTAKE #2:  NOT EATING ENOUGH PROTEIN

Get at least 20 grams of protein per meal.  This is absolutely most critical at breakfast.

 

MISTAKE #3:  NOT DRINKING ENOUGH WATER

Make a special effort to drink more water on your cheat day.

 

MISTAKE #4:  BELIEVING THAT YOU’LL COOK, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A BACHELOR

If you don’t normally cook, get canned and frozen food for the first few weeks.

 

MISTAKE #5:  MISTIMING WEIGHINGS WITH YOUR MENSTRUAL CYCLE 

Woman tend to retain much more water just before their periods.  Ignore scale readings in the 10 days before menstruation.

 

MISTAKE #6:  OVEREATING “DOMINO FOODS”: NUTS, HUMUS, PEANUTS ETC

 

MISTAKE #7:  OVERCONSUMING ARTIFICIAL (OR “ALL-NATURAL”) SWEETENERS

 

MISTAKE #8:  HITTING THE GYM TOO OFTEN.  

Over training leads to over eating.

 

DAMAGE CONTROL:  Preventing Fat Gain When You Binge

 

PRINCIPLE #1 MINIMIZE THE RELEASE OF INSULIN, A STORAGE HORMONE.

  1. Ensure that your first meal of the day is not a binge meal and has at least 30 grams of protein.
  2. Consume a small quantity of fructose, fruit sugar, in grapefruit juice before second meal.
  3. Use supplements that increase insulin sensitivity:  AGG (part of PAGG).
  4. Consume citric juices, whether lime juice squeezed into water, lemon juice on food.

 

PRINCIPLE #2  INCREASE THE SPEED OF GASTRIC EMPTYING, OR HOW QUICKLY FOOD EXITS THE STOMACH

Bingeing is a rare circumstance where you want the food (or some of it) to pass through the gastrointestinal tract so quickly that its constituent parts aren’t absorbed well.

Accomplish this primarily through caffeine and yerba mate tea.  Also the supplement “Athletic Greens” will help.

 

 

PRINCIPLE #3:  ENGAGE IN BRIEF MUSCULAR CONTRACTION THROUGHOUT THE BINGE.

Airsquates, wall presses, chest pulls with elastic band.  Do 60-90 secs ideally abut 90 min after you eat
