Rule No. 2: It's as simple as 1, 2, 3; 1 part fat, 2 parts protein, and 3 parts carbohydrate. This rule vacillates from person to person depending at what stage you are in with your fitness program. If you are wanting to shed pounds it is okay to cut back on a few more carbs than usual, just make sure the carbs you consume are complex carbs and not simple sugars. Also make sure that the fats you consume are healthy fats such Olive Oil & Canola Oil, and not from animal sources.
Rule No. 4: Have days of negative calorie intake, followed by periods of postive calorie intake. You can't loose weight without a negative calorie intake, nor can you gain weight without a positive calorie intake. The only solution is to create an alternating cycle.
Using these five rules to guide you on your daily nutrition routine will put you on track towards achieving your fitness goals. With a well-developed fitness routine combined with a solid nutritional knowledge, you can produce the results you wish to feel and see. As gym bunnies we should be well informed but be able to boil down our secrets to physical success to a simple science, or simple rules we abide by.
