Cutting Fat!

 

1400 Calorie Fat Loss Diet

As much as I love reading magazines like Men's Fitness, Men's Health, Maximum Fitness and Reps... I discovered that they might be leading you astray (unintentionally) when it comes to nutrition and finding a healthy diet plan.

This post will speak to you (bluntly) if you live by a '"But I eat healthy,'" mentality, and I'll share more reasons why you'll never get rid of your belly fat and love handles.

Let's see if you and I think alike and if you see the same problem with these 'health facts' and 'nutrition tips' that make up a good percentage of the magazine content.

  • A McDonald's large chocolate shake has 1,160 calories and and 168 grams of sugar so make your own home made smoothie instead.
  • Eat more Vitamin E from sunflower seeds and almonds because it will help you combat free radicals and live longer.
  • Eat more salmon instead of white tuna because it has less mercury, keeps you full longer and has the same amount of protein.
  • Eat this instead of that.
  • Drink 4-7 cups of red wine each week to decrease your chance of diabetes by 48%.
  • Kick your liquid sugar habit by cutting out milk, alcohol, juices and sodas and replace it with green tea and water.
  • When you're craving sugar, go for a handful of berries and melons that will not affect your six pack like muffins and doughnuts.

None of this information is wrong, and if you're a complete beginner then you might be able to knock off 10-20 pounds by just applying this new knowledge.

But, do you see the main problem?

  • How do you know if you've over consumed?
  • How do you know if you've under consumed?
  • How do you know exactly how much to consume?
  • What do you do at the end of the week when you've applied this advice and still weigh the same? What do you change?
  • How can I help you change anything if I don't see what you are currently putting in your mouth and in what amounts?
  • What do you take out and how much do you take out if you jump on the scale and have gained more fat than muscle?
  • How do you know if you should buy 12 apples or 6 apples or if you should buy 2 loaves of bread or 1 loaf of bread?

Do you see how you're setting yourself up for failure if you are just guessing and relying on a '"But I don't eat bad food' mentality."

These are just a few problems with 'winging' your nutrition and not having a specific healthy diet plan designed to your specific goal.

That's why in over 2 years my emails don't revolve around a bag full of tips and tricks. I always redirect you back to my website to get a complete set of healthy diet meal plans for you follow each and every day - because this is the only way YOU can truly help yourself get firm, flat and sexy abs.

Today I have included a free diet plan at the 1400 calorie level which is ideal if you're a 120-140 pound female who wishes to lose body fat.  Over the next few days I'll post a 1800 calorie healthy diet plan as well as a 2200 calorie healthy diet plan.  Veggie plans are on the way too.

I strongly believe that if you're not following a structured meal plan then you're shooting yourself in the foot and only hoping on success instead of taking control of your success.

If you're goals are to get a firm, flat and sexy stomach than believe me when I say, "90% is diet, diet, diet." Ask any fitness model or any bodybuilder and they will say the exact same thing! Don't believe me? Watch this short video clip of me and a handful of fitness models at the World Fitness Model Championships last spring when I ask them how to get a six-pack: http://www.vincedelmontefitness.com/blog  

So there you have it. Diet Diet Diet! If you want to get rid of your belly fat for spring and summer then you better get a move on. Realistically it takes 12-16 weeks to drastically transform your body and if you start now then you'll be ready for summer. It all starts with your nutrition so be sure to check out my healthy diet meal plans today.

I'll be emailing you more meal plans for getting rid of your belly fat and love handles over the next few days. If the meal plan today had too few calories in it then hang on - yours will arrive before Friday.

P.S. Just got this email literally minutes ago from Jessie Mazur... these are the emails that make my day. I hope it inspires you to take more action!

"Hello Vince,

I thought I would try out your program for at least a month before I tell you about myself because I wanted to see if I really had what it takes to stick with it.

I've now been Upside Down Training for about 5 weeks and have been training, stretching, eating, and sleeping as prescribed in your book as closely as I can, and for the first time today since I started, a co-worker told me I look bigger. It was pretty cool to realize that I really do have the power to change myself.

Without making this message too long I want to let you know that your No-Nonsense Muscle Building book is quite remarkable. I have read it many times and continue to read it and learn new things every time. The muscle building principles and techniques seem to really be working for me, but what has affected me most profoundly are your sections about goal setting, motivation, accountability, and habit forming/breaking.

These portions of your book have helped me discover the things that have been holding me back in life, in facets beyond physique, and are continuing to help me focus on the things I really care about and want to do with my life, while eliminating bad habits. I have been stuck in the "sick cycle" for a long time, and largely in part to your book I seem to be escaping. Thank you for empowering me to change myself for the better, body and mind."
