“One, Two (solid), Three (still strong), Four (soft grunting begins), Five(louder), Six (AAHHHH),Seven (I can taste it!), CUPCAKE!!!”
We’ve all done this. Had a great workout, went to McDonalds or stuffed our face with our favorite (not so healthy) snack or treat. Maybe we do this more than we should.
Obviously over-rewarding ourselves for accomplishing a great workout is very self defeating. We all know why.
Lets stop and think for a moment:
Q: What do we do when we hit an exercise plateau?
Q: What do we do when we stop losing the weight, the body fat, when we stop getting stronger and making gains?
A: We change our routine through: tempo, rest duration, weight, sets, reps, intervals, etc.
Is it possible to get over a nutrition plateau? YES!!!!
If you are stuck on a nutrition plateau, do yourself a favor and eat something that we normally would say is NOT HELPING YOU WITH YOUR RESULTS!
Not daily, or when you accomplish an amazing goal. But eat something bad for you 1-2 times per week. Your diet needs to be challenging just like your workouts. Change it up, eat something bad for you and shock your metabolism!
