Low carbohydrate diets: the rave of the century! But why? 👇👇👇
They do one thing good: cause massive short-term losses in bodyweight. 👇👇👇
This is were many people get confused. Losses in bodyweight doesn't just mean fat, it may mean a collection of things: muscle, fat, bone density, glycogen, water. 👇👇👇
Your weight loss and body composition goal is to lose just the FAT portion of this. Nothing else. 👇👇👇
Unfortunately, the rapid short-term losses in bodyweight you experience due to low carbohydrate diets are not due to losses in fat mass, but mainly due to large losses in water and glycogen. 👇👇👇
Given that low carbohydrate diets are no more effective compared to other diets over the long term for weight loss (energy deficits equated), low carbohydrate diets might not be your best bet. 👇👇👇
For most people, low carbohydrate diets are probably not going to be most optimal approach to losing fat. You miss out on all the performance and satiety benefits of carbohydrates. Over the long term these benefits enhance the long term effectiveness of one's diet and hence fat loss success. 👇👇👇
In some cases, a low carbohydrate diet might be beneficial to those who have trouble processing carbs or suffer from insulin-related disorders. But for MOST people, it is probably not going to give you the best bang for your buck!👇👇👇
Losing fat requires TIME and any immediate weight losses are likely due to changes in glycogen/water. Over the long term, low carbohydrate diets are just going to be too restrictive to allow you to optimise your fat loss. 👇👇👇
Yes, the potential health benefits from low carbohydrate diets are grounded. But in the context of PURE fat loss, their true long term efficacy is yet to be established. ✍️ #fatloss#food#weightloss#bodybuildingcom#bodycomposition#weighttraining#weightlifting#gym#gymtime#goals❤️#goals😍#fitness#fitnesslife#fitnessblogger#fitnessmotivation#bodybuildinglifestyle#personaltraining#personalbodyplan#personaltrainer#onlinepersonaltraining#onlinetraining#onlinecoaching#gymtime#weightlossjourney#carbohydrate
Party People- Moe, post a fun after workout progress pic of your prep for your upcoming photo shoot.
Moe Bracy- Now that's where I draw the line! This is getting ridiculous! My Party People don't want to see me dial in for a shoot... and isn't it illegal to take pics in a public locker room?
PP- Yes they do, and yes.
Today, I will show you how to make one of my all-time favorite ingredients: butter!
All you need is a large Mason jar and 16oz of heavy whipping cream. Once you pour the cream in the jar, simply start shaking with both hands. Pace yourself, but keep the movements high.
I recommend not using more than 16oz at a time for this size of jar, as you need enough empty space in the jar for the cream to collide against, which will be especially important in the later stages.
The first stage of shaking the Mason jar is the easiest, as the cream is in its natural form.
The second stage is when it starts getting thicker and will have a consistency somewhat like whipped cream.
The third stage is where things start getting tougher. The cream will become so thick that you will need to let it settle on one side of the jar, then turn the jar over and "throw" it in a downward motion as hard as you can. The lack of space that is now in the jar means you need to power through this stage.
The fourth stage begins when you start to be able to see through the bottle again. Once this happens, shake furiously, as you are in the home stretch.
The last stage is where you can see a clear pile of butter in the jar, which has now become yellow after separation, and liquid at the bottom. This liquid is called "buttermilk." Clever, right? Unlike store-bought buttermilk, which is just milk and vinegar combined, and tastes horrible, your newly-homemade buttermilk tastes sweet and delicious. It won't last more than a day, though, so make sure to drink it ASAP, or make some biscuits with it.
Once you remove the butter from the jar, put it in a finely-meshed colander, and run ice cold water over it. This will help harden it before forming, as well as wash off any leftover buttermilk. You won't want any liquid throughout this butter as it can turn it rancid faster.
After running cold water over it, move your colander in a circular motion, as well as up and down, to help shake off all the liquid. Do this for 4-6 minutes.
Finally, I like to put the ball of butter in between two paper towels and giving it a soft squeeze, to force any microscopic liquids out.
I missed you all, 😆 so here is a #throwbacktuesday to say “Hi 👋” since I’m only 12 days postpartum. I feel great, but taking time to rest and allow my body to heal.
What are your #LifeHacks for flying solo with a newborn and toddler? As a military spouse, it’s only a matter of time until Le Hubbs has training. I like to hear what other parents do (why reinvent the wheel, eh?). Share your tips below!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
