russellb97's top tips

1.Enjoy your Spike Day. It is a free day and is meant to refresh your mind and body. Guilt is not allowed on this Diet.
2.Use Resting Metabolic Rate for your calorie goals, that way activities and exercise are a bonus and will create a deficit.
3.Metabolism is the key to fat burning. Our body will use fat for energy in a calorie deficit while we are resting.
4.You will feel more full with foods higher in protein and fiber.
5.Avoid simple carbohydrates like white starches and sugars to avoid blood sugar spikes. Never have sugar on an empty stomach.
6.Starvation Mode, cravings, and diet plateau's are all related. We store fat for a reason and that reason is survival. When we use our energy reserves our brain plays dirty to get us to stop.
