Getting + Staying Lean Without Weighing Food

Today I want to highlight another component of the Metabolic Amplification System for you.

This is called the “Lifestyle Manual” –

Not a super sexy name, but check out all that it covers:

– Getting and staying lean without weighing food
– Having “dirty” foods + attending social events
– Taking vacations on a diet
– Drinking alcohol in a calorie deficit
– Increasing test levels naturally
– Dealing with social pressure

These are things that almost no one addresses in diet programs. But honestly, I think they are what holds so many people back from making progress – probably much more so than the diet itself. And that’s why I’m strongly recommending it.

Getting + Staying Lean WITHOUT Weighing Food

Here is a tip (from the MAS Lifestyle Manual) that I have long used in my diet to stay relatively lean, all the time, without weighing or measuring food.

Almost every person that I know that stays at a healthy weight on an on-going basis, does basically the same thing.

Almost all clients that struggle with their weight that come to us for help, do NOT do this.

This is – stick to your favorite meal pattern until it becomes a habit.

Sticking to a meal pattern for a long enough period of time will allow you to:

— Get used to eating the same number of meals every day, and avoid snacking between those meals
— Get used to eating more or less the same quantities of the same foods at the same time of the day

Here is what a MAS “meal pattern” looks like, as an example:

Meal 1: 1-3 pm – (60-70% of your daily calories) – High protein, high carb, medium fat

Meal 2: 7-9 pm – (30-40% of your daily calories) – Medium protein, medium carb, low fat
Snacks

Fruit snack – (80-100 kcal, optional) – One snack anytime in the day you feel hungry

What you eat and how much of it you eat for fat loss is going to become pretty much automatic only a few weeks after you’ve started dieting.

You will still be weighing food and counting calories and protein because you will want to make sure you have everything dialed in, but the truth is by then you will be able to duplicate your regular day of eating without a kitchen scale.

Developing a meal pattern with a limited number of enjoyable meals into a habit is the first step towards the liberation from calorie and macro counting.

Habits and daily practices like this are things that almost no one addresses in meal programs, but are what holds so many people back from making progress – probably much more so than the diet itself.
