Supermodel Diet Secrets
Supermodel Diet SecretsBy Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MSAuthor of Turbulence Training
Diet and fat loss becomes easy once you understand how hard it actually is.
Once you understand that dieting and fat loss is hard work and not as easy as eating some celery, drinking water, and slamming down "metabolism boosters", that's the moment when you will start to achieve results.
Sticking to a nutrition program takes effort and planning to meet your fat loss goals.
Same applies to exercise. Once you understand that harder workouts are far more effective, that's when you will put more effert into planning your workouts.
Over the years I have interviewed dozens of supermodels and fitness models (men and women) for Oxygen and Maximum Fitness magazines, and I can tell you that supermodel diet secrets to success are as plain as day.
They know it's hard work to get ready for a photoshoot, but what do they know that YOU don't know?
First, they have got their nutrition plan down perfectly. When I say planned out, I don't mean they have a meal plan torn out of a magazine. Instead, they have their entire grocery shopping lists prepared in advance.
They set aside time for cooking and they have enough tupperware to store and freeze their food for the entire week.
Supermodels and fitness models take meals with them and aren't naive to believe that they can always find something healthy to eat at work or while on the road.
They are never willing to sacrifice results for the sake of convenience.
They accept the hard work that comes with eating properly in order to achieve their dieting and fat loss goals. Do you?
Second, supermodels and fitness models know what works and what doesn't, both in the kitchen and at the gym.
They record their workouts, study the effects of different exercises, repetition ranges and workout frequencies. These are the key elements to supermodel diet secrets.
Models accept that there is NO guesswork with fat loss workouts. That's why models plan their workouts well in advance and write down the results in a training log.
If you are not doing that then you're simply playing a workout lottery and hoping that you will somehow get lucky.
Third, and perhaps most important (because it's hard to have the first two without this factor), models surround themselves with a very supportive environment.
How many models do you think are married to overweight smokers? How many models do you think hang around men and women that begin drinking at 2p.m. every Friday?
Thus, having the right supportive environment can literally make or break your dieting program in less than a minute.
Research has shown this to be true and experience proves it.
All you need is a group of co-workers to surround your desk with a box of doughnuts and pressure you into having "just one". Next thing you know it's 3 days later and you still haven't had a decent healthy meal.
According to research on social support for dieting and fat loss, there are at least two proven and effective ways to use the powers of other people to achieve your goals.
First, it's important to have a health professional in your social support circle. This can be a doctor, a certified nutritionist or a trainer that you see on a regular basis.
This works best for those people that can't find support among family, friends or co-workers.
Second, if a member from your social support circle also loses weight/fat or get really fit, you will also have a greater chance of succeeding. Thus, try to get family members and friends directly involved.
