This is a pretty easy question because let’s be real, we all want fat loss including me so let’s start there, performance also gets you fat loss just maybe not as acutely as being in a deficit because you are reinvigorating muscle and with more energy comes better work. With better work comes more muscle which replaces fat. So what should you pick and most of all should you check with your coach and change now that you realize you might have picked the wrong thing. Let’s analyze that a bit (and I will add in the other options as well:
Fat Loss: You were over eating coming into Eat To Perform, no, I mean like really over doing it. Not like, that one weekend I had Dairy Queen and now my weight is up .5 pounds and I still have 20 pounds to lose but I know I am under eating. When you choose fat loss, you should have most things nailed down, so let’s talk about the people that should choose performance and maybe that will help.
Performance: You sleep 5 hours a night, you don’t plan meals or you do plan meals and they are crazy rigid. Most of all you have been dieting since you were 8 years old. Obviously that is an exaggeration but it holds true for a lot of people, if you have been dieting the answer isn’t to just diet harder. In performance, your sleep should improve, coaches will get you focused on meal prep and finding some order to what you do. Is your sodium too high too often, what about your workouts, are you fatigued all of the time and miss workouts? If you don’t feel like a million bucks right now that’s one of the biggest reasons people fail at any diet, they diet when their will is low and they are mad at the scale. That doesn’t last, performance is like a willpower reservoir, the deeper the reservoir is, the better chance you will succeed.
Muscle Gain: This means you want to gain weight. Plain and simple. There are too many people trying to pretend that you can replace fat with muscle and for almost everyone that isn’t how it works. You actually need to gain weight to put on muscle. We take you through that gradually.
Breastfeeding mom’s: Breastfeeding mom’s often want to get back to their pre-pregnancy weight too fast and under eat as a result. This can compromise milk production.
Pregnant mom’s: Let’s be real here, pregnancy can be difficult to navigate, you have urges and cravings that are just weird and you probably want to keep your weight to a healthy level for the baby to thrive, same as above, we can help you with that.
