How to Lose Weight After Vacation

How to Lose Weight After Vacation

Lose weight after vacation, boy did I ever need to. Some how the beer, the seafood, the beer, wait, I already said beer, and the seafood caught up to me. I came back from the beach 6 pounds heavier than I started, and that included me surfing and kayaking everyday, and even hitting the gym while at the beach! I couldn’t imagine how much I would have gained if I wasn’t active. The goal to this post is to show how easy it is to lose weight after vacation as long as you follow these steps.

How to Lose Weight After Vacation

Lose Weight After Vacation: Drink Lots of Water

Once you return back to the grind of life after vacation, it is essential that you put down the soda, the beer, and the other bloat causing drinks and pick up water. How much water? You want to shoot for 100-130 ounces of water a day. What’s crazy about the human body is that when you drink water, it causes you to expel water. Your body says “Hey, since I’m drinking all this water, I don’t need to hold extra water, so I’ll pee it out!” You’ll be surprised how much weight you can lose in a day by just drinking extra water!

Lose Weight After Vacation: Throw Away The Junk!

Once you arrive back at your house, go to your kitchen and throw away all the junk food. If it isn’t healthy, throw it away!

Lose Weight After Vacation: Lower Your Carbs

You probably ate way too many carbs while you were on vacation. I know I did. Carbohydrates hold water. Most people do not know, but 1 gram of carbohydrate hold 3 additional grams of water. This means that if you would eat 4 ounces of a pure carbohydrate meal, you would add 12 ounces of water to your body, gaining an additional pound of body weight almost instantly!

If you lower your carbohydrate total, while drinking extra water, you will flush out a ton of bloat.

Lose Weight After Vacation: Increase Protein and Healthy Fats

Although I did eat a ton of protein last week, I didn’t eat much healthy fats. When you get back from vacation, it is essential to start eating a minimum of .8 grams of protein per pound of lean muscle mass. This means that if you are at 20% body fat, and you weigh 200 pounds, you have 160 pounds of lean muscle. You would need to eat .8 grams of protein for those 160 grams of lean muscle, or 128 grams of protein at minimum. If you lift weights, I’d suggest 1.2-1.5 grams of protein per lean muscle mass.

As for healthy fats, I like fish oil, healthy nut fats, olive oils, and avocados. While most people think “fats make you fat”, healthy fats can actually help you lose weight!

Lose Weight After Vacation: Supplements Can Help!

Supplements that I suggest for those who want to get back on the weight loss track are:

Royal 21 Queen/King System:

A potent fat fight, the Royal 21 Queen System for women, or the Royal 21 King System for men is a proven fat loss system that helps men and women increase metabolism, control appetite, help regulate hormones, lower stress, and even helps you sleep! You can order it here with free shipping! 

M-Factor Goddess or Hero

One of the best multi-vitamins on the market, the 1st Phorm M-Factor series is made specifically for men and women and has the right dosages of vitamins and minerals to help each sex hit the health goals they want. Order here with free shipping! 

GDA (Glucose Disposal Agent)

GDA is a product unlike anything I had ran into before. GDA helps block the absorption of carbs in the blood stream, which in turn keeps it from turning to fat. This helps you lose weight and also helps you gain muscle. In essence it is a “carb blocker”. It is cheap and 2 pills 30 minutes works! Order it here with free shipping!

Lose Weight After Vacation: Go to the Gym!

If you need a workout, check out our workout page here!

It is important to spend time in the gym when you get back from vacation. Sweat out those toxins and help build lean, sexy muscle!

Summary

Losing weight after a vacation, or starting out losing weight can be hard, however if you follow these steps you will find it is much easier to lose the weight. In 2 days I have lost 4 of the 6 pounds by following the steps above! I’m hoping by the end of the week I will have lost all 6 and maybe even more!

Here is a sure-fire way to lose weight fast.

  1. Join the transformation contest from 1st Phorm. They are giving away $250,000 to the people that show the greatest “transphormations” over 90 days and overall. The new contest just started. Go to mytransphormationstartstoday.com  and register. If you register and put down nutritionandpersonaltraining@yahoo.com as your trainer, I will provide you free meal plans and workout plans!
  2. Calculate your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). Your BMR is the number of calories you need in a day to maintain your current weight. If you eat less than that number, you will lose weight. http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/
  3. Create a goal. Setting a hard yet achievable goal for your weight loss is a must. I recommend 1-2 pounds of fat loss per week. In 90 days that equates to 13-26 pounds!
  4. Create a meal plan. Now that you know your BMR you need to target a calorie intake below your BMR. Statistically eating 500 calories less than your BMR will equate to 1 pound of fat loss, however you will be working out. This means that as long as you burn + eat less calories, you will lose weight faster!
  5. A good meal plan should target your ideal body weight in grams of protein (If you want to weight 150, eat 150 grams of protein). Fats should only include healthy fats from fish, olive oil, nuts, beans, etc. Carbs should be low except for post workout.
  6. Create a workout plan. Search this blog for workout plans, and you will find a ton of options! I would suggest 3-5 times a week in the gym, doing at least 15-30 minutes of cardio each day.
  7. Supplements can help you, but won’t do the work for you.The Bliss Go Pack (women) and Commander Go Packs (men)  (click link to purchase) can help you kick start your metabolism, optimize thyroid, help you sleep better, and shred fat! I would definitely by a meal replacement protein powder such as Level-1 (click link to purchase) to help you substitute expensive unhealthy meals with a very tasty protein shake. M-Factor Goddess/Hero is a great multi-vitamin to take to help you replace vitamins and minerals that you will lose.  
  8. Make sure to check your goals weekly. I suggest only weighing in on Friday mornings at the same time each week. I also suggest measuring around your belly button before starting your diet, and every two weeks there after to see results.
  9. Need help? Team Nutrition Train  offers free meal plans, workout plans, and other information to help you hit your goals!

M Factor Goddess Review

M-FACTOR Goddess MAY BE WHAT YOU ARE MISSING FOR EXPLOSIVE RESULTS

1st Phorm has patented a new Multi-Vitamin especially made to help you achieve your results in and out of the gym…

Order M-Factor Goddess with free shipping by clicking link!

Everyone knows that a good multi-vitamin is hard to find. Most are cheap and ineffective. John Hopkins University released a study in 2013 that said at best, “multi-vitamins, at best, are a waste of money…”. There has been numerous studies, and I for one even wrote an article for Yahoo.com stating how I am against using multi-vitamins unless recommended by a doctor.

I have changed my opinion. When dieting hard and hitting the gym hard, you are in need of premium vitamins and minerals to keep the machine flowing. If you spend 4 or 5 days in the gym each week like me, then you need to treat your body like a Maserati and not a Chevy Aveo. Dieters, and people who train hard in the gym are prone to not getting enough of the vitamins they need. Women who train hard need an extra push to make sure they get the proper vitamin and minerals in their nutrition.

I am very impressed with both M-Factor Hero and M-Factor Goddess….

I started off by comparing both M-Factors to the leading multi-vitamin, Centrum. I was shocked how under dosed Centrum is compared to both M-Factors. Vitamins and minerals that I am a huge fan of like the B Vitamins, Niacin, Folic Acid, Pantothenic Acid, Chromium, Copper, Magnesium, Zinc, and more were dosed perfectly in the M-Factor products, and were very low in the Centrum products. What I also liked about the M-Factor products were the additional products that separated Hero from Goddess.

Hero offers several additional categories that feature anti-oxidants, amino acids, and male health products.

Goddess offers several additional categories that feature anti-oxidants, energy, fat burning capabilities, and mood enhancements.

Both products are only $24.99 for a 40 day supply. I would definitely encourage people training/dieting to consider adding these products to their daily supplements. You can purchase these products and more from 1st Phorm or through 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain and receive free shipping on your entire order!

What Supplements Should I Take?

One of the most asked questions I get as a personal trainer and a sports nutritionist is “Should I take supplements?” or “What supplements should I take?”

Unfortunately this isn’t a quick answer question. A good trainer/nutritionist should take in account like your health condition and your goals.

qtq80-3fv1hi-300x225

Essential Supplements Everyone Should Take:

1. Protein: Whether it is whey, beef, casein, or other variant (I don’t like soy, but this is a different discussion), protein is great for people wanting to lose weight, gain muscle, or maintain. It is convenient and cheap comparative to other sources. Protein that is high quality, low fat, low carb, and high protein levels are essential. That is why I suggest great tasting Level-1 Protein by 1st Phorm. Level-1 Protein is a meal replacement shake (replaces expensive non-nutritious meals with healthy cost effective alternatives). Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

2.  Fish Oil: Fish oil is great for your body, whether you are dieting, bulking, or maintaining. Fish oil is an anti-inflammatory which has characteristics that help prevent cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and arthritis.¹ Fish oil are healthy fats that will actually help you with weight loss. You want to take a fish oil supplement with the highest levels of EPA and DHA. I prefer Full Mega from 1st Phorm. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

3. Multi-Vitamin: As you train harder, you need a multi-vitamin that will work harder for you. Multi-vitamins help replace lost nutrients and supplement nutrients that your body isn’t getting. I like M-Factor Hero and M-Factor Goddess.  M-Factor has a formula for men, and a formula for women. Each come with essential vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and amino acids that can help your body perform at its best! Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

4. Amino Acids: Although Phormula-1 and Level-1 provides 5 grams of Branch Chain Amino Acids per serving, many supplements do not include a good 2:1:1 ratio of  L-Leucine, L-Valine, and L-Isoleucine. Amino acids help with recovery, strength, and size. BCAA from 1st Phorm tastes amazing and has a great supplement ratio. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

Supplements for Size and Strength:

1. Creatine: Creatine is one of the most studied supplements in sports nutrition. Creatine is a natural supplement that is found in meat. Supplementing creatine will increase muscle volume, lessen recovery time, and increase strength. Creatine has been proven safe time and time again. Creatine is also very affordable. You can get 100 servings of 1st Phorm Creatine for less than $20. Mix it with your protein shake or drink. It doesn’t matter when or what time you take creatine. Just make sure you take it every day. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

2. Pre-Workout: A good pre-workout will help motivate you in the gym. Some people will look for supplements with a ton of caffeine, while others want a supplement with a mixture of amino acids, creatine, beta-alanine, and nitric oxide boosters. I prefer MegaWatt V2 or it’s non stimulant brother ALPHACre HD. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

Supplements for Fat Loss:

1. Fat Burner: Let me be the first one to tell you that although many fat burners work, they are not necessary for fat loss. Many people have lost a lot of weight without the use of fat burners. What a fat burner can do is help you through hormone regulation, energy, thermogenics, and water management. I am a huge fan of the Royal XXI Systems. The Royal XXI Queen and Royal XXI King Systems help men and women lose weight fast! I have clients on both right now and they are losing fat extremely fast. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

Supplements for Older Men:

1. Testosterone Boosters: Unfortunately testosterone levels for men 30 and over decrease by about 10% every 10 years.² Testosterone helps with strength, sex drive, and overall well-being for men and women. There are many supplements that our over the counter that can help increase testosterone in middle-aged men. Supplements such as D Aspartic Acid, Tribulus Terrestris, and Fenugreek have been shown to increase testosterone. I really like 1st Phorm’s Testosterone boosting series. Order @ 1stphorm.com/nutritiontrain with free shipping.

Summary:

Supplements are what their name suggests: supplements to your diet and your health. Protein, fish oils, multi-vitamins, and amino acids are essential (in my humble opinion) to men and women who are spending time in the gym. Other supplements can help give you an edge, but may or may not be needed. Check with your personal trainer/nutritionist/doctor before starting any supplements to see if they are right for you.
