It has been a while since I wrote as I have been super busy with clients. I will be back to the usual writing schedule very soon. Today I have put in a few questions I have answered for people I have been training.
They touch on various subjects form competing in a bikini show, to feel overweight to the new Cadbury’s low sugar chocolate bar. As ever, if you have any questions simply reply to this email and I will look to help you out.
1) Yes you can easily do a bikini show.
2) Plan in off periods for your dieting… you can continue your progress until say the middle August then break even for a couple of weeks and get back on it thereafter…
In general without a date for a show you will struggle to run a 12 weeks block together… and/or just bounce back by regaining fat the moment you finish it.
3) You have a fair few weeks dieting to go to be super super ripped… it better to accept that mentally than hoping this week will be the one you get there… Hence periods on/off allow it to be easier. These processes just show how lean you need to be and how much time it takes to be stage ready.
Question – What Do You Think Of Cadbury’s New Chocolate Bar?
I also noticed this in the shops, it has some clever marketing behind it. The new bar claimed to be 50% less sugar than a standard dairy milk bar. This sounds great, however it is not quite as it appears. For starters the bar is smaller, almost 25% smaller yet costs twice the price of a standard one. Though eating less chocolate is a good thing to do it shows how they manipulate factors to sound good.
If you are to compare the gram to gram data you find the the total calorie content of the new “healthy” low sugar chocolate has only 5% less calories than the original, 504 vs 534 calories per 100g. This means in energy terms it is about the same as before.
I have never been a fan of people trying “healthy” versions of foods that are fairly obviously junk. I think it is better to call a horse a horse and eat it because you want it then just factor it into your overall plan.
