Weight Loss and Weight Gain
- To lose weight, reduce your calories consumed per day by 500 – 1000 calories. Do that for a week and see if your weight changes. If not, drop by no more than 500 calories and test it again for a week.
- To gain mass, eat 300 – 500 more calories per day. Increase protein and carbohydrate intake, especially after workouts.
- You should lose no more than 1 – 2 pounds per week. Any more than that is not healthy or sustainable.
- Reducing calories will mean your body uses fat but will also use some muscle mass as well. To avoid loss of muscle, increase protein intake to 35-40% and drop carbohydrates to 40% of your calories. Avoid white bread, pasta and rice. Stick to whole grains.
5. Weight loss and weight gain supplements are not needed. Maintain a good diet instead. Caffeine and Green Tea Extract are both good for weight loss and are well researched
Fuel the Hunger
Jacques has created a system called Fuel the Hunger, a blueprint on eating well for performance. The program is designed to help athletes find the foods and eating pattern that works best for them to improve training results and reach peak performance levels. A better choice of foods and a plan of when to eat them will maximize energy levels, muscle efficiency and mental clarity so they are not sacrificing critical position to a weaker opponent. The knowledge gained will help the athlete to transition to a healthy, life-long pattern of eating that will keep them vibrant and reduce the risk of serious illness.
