Are you fighting against your own body to get more energy and drop fat?
For example, are you downing a Red Bull after lunch to make up for that energy-sucking, soul-crushing burger and fries you had for lunch?
Or are you eating a high-carb breakfast because Tony the Tiger has been in your head since 1986 and you can’t imagine NOT having carbs as part of a “balanced breakfast”?
So much of the way we consume food (thanks to the advertising industry) is counter to the natural ways our bodies work.
Our bodies have particular rhythms that produce the energy we need during the day, but you have to learn to work with those rhythms instead of against them to drop fat and keep it off.
Leverage Your Body’s Natural Rhythms to Lose Fat Fast
In order to understand your body’s day-to-day natural energy cycles and how use them to your advantage, it’s helpful to consider your day in four distinct parts:
- Prep time (Early AM, wake up and get ready for the day)
- Focus time (AM, best time for deep work)
- Check the boxes time (Late afternoon, menial tasks)
- Wind down (Late PM, rest and digest time)
Each of these segments of your day needs particular inputs from you to maximize your energy levels when you need them the most and to successfully wind down at the end of the day.
For example, your best and deepest work should be done in the morning. You are NOT going to be thinking straight or have as much mental focus for the things that really move the needle in your business in the afternoon. Leave the afternoon for checking off menial tasks from your to-do list.
Furthermore, in order to have enough energy to get through the afternoon, you need to eat a light lunch of protein and vegetables. The less you eat at lunch, the more productive you’ll be. (Repeat after me.)
Lose Fat Fast: Which Inputs Do You Need?
In this week’s episode of the Million Dollar Body podcast, I’m going to show you how you can drop fat fast by giving your body the specific inputs it needs to operate at a high level daily.
- About your body’s hormones and how they fuel productivity and rest
- Which habits get you out of sync with your natural energy cycles (so you don’t do that. duh.)
- How to eat at breakfast, lunch, and dinner to get the energy and the recovery your body needs to work efficiently EVERY DAY
Remember: Small inputs at the right time on a daily basis add up to huge wins. Once you understand how to put these simple habits into place, you’re not only going to drop fat fast, you’re going to be able to keep it off!
