No carbs at night, no carbs if you want to lose weight, blah blah blah....
This is why so many people are confused with nutrition.
...it is all to do with the white noise, that is experienced in the media, or by Personal Trainers who provide Bro science advice...
>>So what do you do..?
If you listen to some trainers, they may tell you the following:
Don't to eat carbs after 7pm,
Only eat carbs before or after training,
Dont have any white carbs, because it's not strict paleo..??
White carbs are just sugar, that will make you fat and should be avoided..Really..?
Aaaaaarrgggghhhh.....!! it even confuses me....
This is all about you and what you need, not about your ego driven bodybuilding style trainer who tries to get you to do what he/she does.
(Don't get me started on supplements.. (next week))
I get it, i've been there as a 20 something lad (i'm now a grown man of 44) and listened to the bro's in the gym, the same bro's that are now on social media, spouting rubbish.
Here in lies the problem - Social Media,
(The ironic thing is that i am passing this info to you through some form of media.... doh..!)
**Time for some real talk....**
If you workout and want to get strong, eat carbs to fuel your body and for post workout food.
If you workout and want to lose weight, try limiting carbs for breakfast, i.e porridge, toast, yogurts, fruit, cereal etc.
If you workout and want to get strong and put on muscle, try eating an excess of calories i.e 200-300
If you workout and want to lose weight, do not starve yourself but eat less calories for a slow approach i.e 200-300 calorie deficit.
Fitness and working out has evolved from eating steak/eggs or egg whites with carrot sticks, i implore you to stop starving or restricting yourself from the things you like and start living.

Just got an email, asking where is my evening email, you're late..!
Ha ha...!, it is a bit of a late one today, Ive been working hard, just like you...
So then, I need to ask you a question...?
How many of you have had a cupcake, Muffin or a croissant for breakfast and it said it's ok, i'm going continental.
Ha ha... Do they really eat cupcakes for breakfast on the continent, where ever the hell that is..!!
Listen up my little cupcake, STOP believing in BULLSHIT....No one who wants to be fit and healthy, eats cupcakes for breakfast.
Cup Cakes for breakfast....REALLY..?
A CUPCAKE or muffin, the same thing that also begs the question...
...how do we rid ourselves of the MUFFIN (just like a cake) TOP!?
Stop eating pastries and highly processed carbs for breakfast is a start.
BUT: The bro science brigade will let you think that sit ups is the answer... WRONG!
Many of us suffer the wrath of the MUFFIN TOP or BEER BELLY.
So, how do we stop the muffin top in its tracks??
EAT REAL FOOD!
Try This - To PREVENT the muffin top from progressing,
Try consuming more oily fish and eat a higher protein, lower carb diet...
...As well as eating additional meals with higher fibre to stabilise blood sugar.
This simple fix will help to reduce insulin to aid in weightloss.. (Reduce the Muffin top!)
Remember you still need carbs to fuel your workouts (try cycling them around your workouts.)
Top tip - Nutrition and weight training are the KING of fat loss tools!
We can guide and help anyone who wants to get in shape, but not if you're gonna eat cupcakes..! ;-)
I am just waking up, so expect some grammatical errors…
Oh, and Please don't email me back, telling me there is a spelling mistake, my eyes are stinging... :-(
