One of the keys to controlling energy levels and consistently accessing fat as fuel is learning how to stabilize blood sugar and/or insulin levels. The GL12 philosophies below will show you how to burn fat and have higher energy now and in the future.
1. Be A Grazer Not A Binger.
When you time your meals properly, you automatically kill cravings and your energy will shoot through the roof (especially with the right choices…more on that below).
You have to keep the fire burning by eating 5 to 6 small meals a day (sometimes even 7) every 2 to 3 hours.
2. Always Balance Meals Using Get Lean In 12 Secret Combinations.
When you combine the right foods together, research (and real world results from our clients and GL12 followers) proves that you can burn more fat by stabilizing blood sugar.
Just remember; *never* eat Carbohydrates by themselves. Our GL12 members know and apply the secret-combinations to burn more fat and increase energy.
3. Consume 30 Grams Or More Of Fiber Every Day.
Most of the time we think of fiber, we just think of…well…the toilet 🙂
However, there are 5 major benefits to seeking extra fiber on a daily basis.
My wife actually lowered her cholesterol from a 228 to a 163 in 45 days by consuming a proven fiber supplement that included cholesterol lowering plant sterols.
4. If Your Goal Is Weight Management Or Fat Loss, Avoid Complex Carbs The Last 2 Meals Of Your Day.
Carbs give us energy for our brain and body during the day, so it’s essential to eat them with protein, and ideally as little friendly fat in every meal. However, at night, our metabolism slows down and we don’t need energy because we’re getting ready to sleep.
Therefore, carbs are more likely to be stored as body fat when consumed too close to bedtime.
5. Consume 1 or 2 Tablespoons Of Friendly Fats Or Oils Per Day.
The research and reported benefits of these types of fats include improved digestion, appetite control, insulin stability, healthy hair, skin, and nails, promotes healthy arteries around the heart…the list goes on and on.
Don’t underestimate the benefits these “friendly” fats have on your long term health, but control your portions. Use 3 or 4 servings a day – about the size of the end of your thumb, or approx 3 tablespoons.
6. Protect Your Immune System And Consume A Liquid Multi-Vitamin
You immune system is your greatest asset. When it’s strong, you can conquer the world. When it’s weak, you become weak in every area.
A cup of spinach from today has 17 times less vitamins and minerals than a cup of spinach from 1953. Our soil has been depleted and is loaded with toxins…EVEN IF you buy organic. Also, only 8% of Americans get the vitamins and minerals we need from our food!
Consume a liquid multi-vitamin and protect your immune system with anti-oxidants.
7. Detoxify & Drink 12 Glasses Of Filtered Water Per Day.
Toxic burden and dehydration can cause immediate weight gain, loss of energy and focus, insomnia, digestive issues, headaches, heartburn, joint pain, and potentially lead to life threatening diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
Do you have any of the above symptoms or issues? Do you want any of them? Enough said. Detox and proper hydration can potentially save lives.
8. Plan and prepare all your Get Lean In 12 meals ahead of time.
If you want to guarantee yourself consistent and proper GL12 fat-burning nutrition week after week, then here’s a couple of tips to make the journey to building long term Get Lean In 12 habits easier.
Make sure you have containers to store your food in so you can grab a container on-the-go or grab it out of the fridge and heat it up.
Lastly, don’t forget to incorporate the proper GL12 timing and secret combinations. (These will be revealed at a later time…)
9. Reward Yourself Weekly.
Every single one of us is going to make bad food choices once in a while. It’s human nature and instinct, so let’s just make failure part of the plan.
If you eat clean 6 days of the week, treat yourself to a *free day*.
Reward yourself with the foods you love, but don’t go overboard.
10. Count Get Lean In 12 portions not calories.
If you consume too many calories in each meal you’ll store more fat, lose energy, and forget to eat every couple hours to keep the fire burning.
When you eat the Get Lean In 12 way, you should never be hungry and never be full…unless it’s your *free* day 😉
11. Avoid alcohol, sugar, and processed foods 5 to 6 days a week.
I know many of us GL12 members are going to indulge once in a while, but everything you eat following a couple cocktails or beers gets stored as fat. Why? Because our body uses alcohol as a primary fuel source before it will digest and use food. Great. Just what you wanted to hear, right?
Go ahead and enjoy a drink or 2 or 3..on your *cheat* day, but learn to avoid these *poisons* 5 to 6 days of your week.
12. Never Eat Or Consume Calories During The GL12 Fat-Burning Windows.
If you knew every time you performed a GL12 workout you could access fat 300% faster AND burn 142% more calories *after* your workout than during your workout, would you be willing to change the way you approach eating before and after workouts?
So, if your goal is fat-loss (and your healthy level permits and you’ve been cleared for exercise), don’t eat during the secret GL12 Fat-Burning windows.
These GL12 philosophies *always* create controversy…and I love it because we always go “against the grain” here at Get Lean In 12.
If we follow the herd, we’ll end up looking like the herd. And the herd is *fat*. Sorry. These are just the facts. Over 65% of America is overweight and many other countries are following suit. That’s why I’m sharing GL12 with everybody I can, because everybody is being *mislead* and *lied* to. People deserve the truth.
If you want to “Get Lean In 12”, than you have to follow some unconventional wisdom and proven strategies.
Believe it or not, by incorporating these as rituals into our lives, these 12 fat-burning habits will allow you to create more time in your life than you ever thought you had because you won’t be chasing energy and focus.
