Remember how you’ve might of been frustrated with trying to sustain an unsustainable and restrictive diet?
Or why you always get out-of-control cravings and eat everything in sight?
And how you can’t seem to stick with a diet for longer than a few days or a few weeks at a time?
It’s probably because you're not eating enough and you're trying to eat too "clean".
Think about it.
You restrict and restrict by trying to eat "clean" while slaving away doing a ton of cardio, HIIT classes, or simply training for hours on end.
Yes of course, you’re burning a ton of calories and depleting your energy stores, but is that truly the secret key to getting lean and destroying the DAD BOD?
This is going to sound crazy but, you more than likely need to eat MORE than you're eating now if you want to get lean, strong, fit, and energized.
I know... ‘eating more’ goes against the whole concept behind shredding fat and losing weight, but you’re going to feel like shit if you don’t start eating more at some point.
You can’t operate at your best off of 1200-1500 calories per day - no one can.
You’re going to feel tired, cranky, and you’re going to LOSE MUSCLE and all of your sex drive to boot.
Eating less will take a huge hit on your metabolism and it'll force your body to go into survival mode.
And in survival mode, you’re not going to lose any weight nor will your body shred away any fat.
If anything, it'll store MORE fat and get rid of muscle.
So, if you've been stuck for a while, more than likely it's due to your metabolism being shot.
It's not about eating "clean" or following some sort of special diet like KETO, PALEO, or [NAME OFF 100 MORE Diets]...
It's not even about eating every 2-3 hours, having 6 meals a day, or if you're Intermittent Fasting or not...
What it all comes down to is your overall QUANTITY of food.
You need to eat to sustain a healthy metabolism 1st.
You need to FUEL your engine.
Once you've achieved that you can then eat in a deficit (to shred fat) or choose to eat in a surplus (to build muscle).
The way we do it within The Forged FATHER is we FUEL in accordance to YOU specifically by making sure you take in the right AMOUNT of MACROS.
Quality wise, you don't need to be PERFECT...
You just need to be 'ok" (it's a rule we stick to 80% clean foods and allow 20% of our intake come from anything we want).
When you get consistent at taking in the right amount of food for you, you can easily enjoy foods like pizza, burgers, beers, potatoes, fudge, milk, ice cream, and more.
And you'll be able to lose weight and get the body you want WITHOUT strict dieting or starving yourself to do it.
When you start eating more food (and you will, TRUST me), you'll love the new amount of energy you have, the health you feel, and the results you see.
It’s a win-win.
And don’t worry - we’re almost there.
