During this phase we will reduce the intake of glycogen ( carbohydrates ), which will force the body to adapt and use fat as its main energy fuel source.
This system will also allow us to stabilise your insulin sensitivity levels.
Due to poor food choices and a general inactive lifestyle most people become what we call insulin resistant, where they are no longer able to process and utilise carbohydrates effectively as a fuel source, as a result there is an overspill, which can result in gains of body fat.
Our aim here is to restore this metabolic process as quickly as possible.
2 Basics rules to follow during this phase:
- No direct carbs (other than veg) are to consumed at breakfast, this includes fruit.
- 20-30grams of your daily carb intake during this phase must come from vegetables. The rest can be consumed post breakfast as desired using one of the recommend carbs sources.
