â™ªâ™ªâ™ª When it comes to nutrition,I rely heavily on the research that’s been publishedin journals and done by scientists allover the world. But just because something’sbeen discovered in the lab does not mean that it’snecessarily gonna carry over into the real world. So I test it on myselfand thousands of people
who follow my advice. So with all that data, I’m ableto sort of bring it all together into the best nutritionadvice that’s out there. With the nutrition programfor quot;Shortcut to Shred,quot; it’s all based onmacronutrients. Getting the protein tocomplement the recovery from the training helps you to buildmore strength and muscle. That’s gonna keep youalso burning more body fat.
In the quot;Shortcut to Shredquot;program, the macronutrients are ranked protein first,fat is actually second, and then carbs comein third place. Protein is the most criticalmacronutrient on the quot;Shortcut to Shredquot; programfor the simple fact that muscle is made out of protein. So to build more muscle,you need more protein. Protein is alsocritical for energy.
Amino acids, that proteinis broken down into, are actually used by themuscles as an energy source. Plus, research shows that higherprotein diets that are lower in carbohydrate actually work verywell for fat loss, especially when we’re trying tomaintain or build lean muscle. There’s a simple fact that it’svery difficult for the body to take protein and thenconvert it into body fat. It’s not impossible, but outof the three macronutrients,
your body has to work muchharder to take protein and convert that into body fat. It’s gonna either go to buildmuscle or be used as energy, especially when you’reeating fewer calories. So focusing on protein is a homerun as far as dropping body fat and buildingmuscle and strength. The protein sources that youwant to focus on during the quot;Shortcut to Shredquot; programare your lean cuts of meat,
like top sirloin, flank steak. Those are verylean sources of beef. You can even get groundbeef that’s 97% lean. Anything 95% andabove lean is great. Obviously chicken breasts,but even chicken thighs. People think, quot;Oh, thedark meat, that’s so fatty.quot; It does have a bit more fatthan a chicken breast, the white meat, but it’s notgonna ruin your program.
What I Ate To Lose 15lbs In 10 Weeks Cutting Diet Foods
Hey, what’s up guys? Sean Nalewanyj here,Seannal , BodyTransformationTruth with a bit of a different tutorial for you today.I just got back from the grocery store, about to head over to the gym here. But I was standingthere and had this big pile of groceries and thought why don’t I just grab the cameraand show you guys what I eat throughout a typical day right now. I’m actually just finishingup a 10week cutting phase. I dropped about 15 pounds over that time. I wasn’t actuallyintending to lose that much initially. My original plan was maybe to go about 8 poundsor so down. But as I got leaner and leaner, I decided it might be a good idea to justtake it a bit further and get some professional
pictures done for my website when I am fairlylean. That’s something that I’ve never done before. That’s going to be on Tuesday. So,I’m starting a water cut tomorrow for the next three days just to really dry out beforethose photos. But I thought I would show you what I’ve been eating over the last 10 weeksin order to drop that initial 15 pounds. So, this isn’t going to be like a regular fullday of eating type of tutorial. I’m just going to separate it into different categories.So, I’ll show you protein, carbs and fats as well as a few just sort of miscellaneousitems that I have throughout the day, just to give you some extra ideas and to show youwhat I’ve been doing. So, here it is. So,
starting with protein source, then just goingfrom left to right kind of in the order that I have them throughout the day. I always startmy day off with a shake, because I’m generally just not that hungry in the morning, and Iwant to get out the door and get to the gym as efficiently as I can. So right now, I’musing scellucor core performance whey as my protein powder. This is the chocolate flavor.It tastes really good, it mixes well. It’s a blend of isolate and concentrate. It’s notamino spiked, which is really important as I’ve talked about before. So, a very highquality product that I’m happy with. I also use optimum nutrition gold standard whey anddymatize elite whey. But I’m just using
the scellucor brand at the moment. After thatis eggs and egg whites. Egg whites are awesome, because they’re basically just pure proteinand it’s a really good way to add more volume to your meal. So, after the gym, I’ll comeback and have one or two whole eggs mixed with usually about 100 to 150 grams of eggwhites. And again, adding the egg whites, just helps you make a bigger portion sizeoverall, without really bumping the calories up too high. Shrimp is not as common as sortof a standard bodybuilding protein source, but I really like it. I have this for lunch.And then for dinner is extra lean ground turkey, which is high in protein, moderate fat andbasically zero carbs. And then late at night
for a snack is lowfat Greek yogurt or actuallythis one is nonfat Greek yogurt. Depending on the brand you get, you’ll get differentmacros. This one is 17 grams of protein and 6 grams of carbs for 175gram serving. Andthen this one here I don’t usually have. But for the next three days, I’m going to be cuttingmy carbs quite a bit and upping the protein as a way to you sort of shed water for thephotos that I’m getting done. So, I’ll be having low fat cottage cheese with cannedsalmon next in, and just put a bit of salt and pepper on top. So, these are just theprotein sources that I personally have at the moment. There’s plenty of other high qualityoptions out there. Lean beef, chicken other
types of fish and seafood, lean pork theseare just my personal preferences right now. So, next moving on to carb sources, frozenmixed berries and oats, which I have with my protein shake in the morning. Bagels, obsessedwith bagels, I love bagels, can’t get enough bagels, have this for lunch and I also haveit later in the day as well. Regular soft berries, blueberries and strawberries, I’llusually mix that into my Greek yogurt or just have it separately as a snack. Another thingthat I snack on as well are rice cakes. This is the tomato basil flavor. Another regularsort of fitness staple, basmati rice, that’s what I have for lunch with my shrimp. Andthen for dinner with my ground turkey is just
