I talked to a few TJM mentors the other night. And I’ll be honest…they got at me a little bit. And rightly so. I’ve been a little bit soft with people recently and I’m maybe not cracking the whip as much as I should be.
You’re not paying me for my pleasantries. You’re paying me to get results.
So, this email’s going to sting a little bit.
If you’re looking to lose weight, there are some things that are non-negotiable.
There are things that you absolutely have to do as part of TJM.
Let’s look at snacking for one of them.
If you want to lose weight, it’s about eating protein, vegetables, and salad, with snacks in between.
If you’re still hungry, have an extra protein snack.
That’s a much better way of doing it than putting extra carbs into your body. If you need another snack, make it a protein snack.
You’re going to get a good dose of carbs at breakfast. But if you start putting them in at other times of the day, you’re going to get insulin spikes.
Those spikes buffer weight loss.
It’s okay to have a snack as long as you’re not pumping extra carbs into your body.
I’ve been a little bit too nice with a few of you. I’ve accepted that you might eat a few too many carbs. Perhaps you’re not quite in the right mental place to fully commit to TJM.
That changes today.
Here’s the simple fact of the matter.
If you’re snacking on carbs during the day, you’re not going to lose the weight.
At best, you’re going to slow your weight loss down and not get the results that you’re looking for.
What happens when you eat carbs?
Your body starts to crave more carbs. And that puts you on a slippery slope. You might have a bad day and those cravings start to take hold. You give into them and now you’re slowing your weight loss down.
Let’s draw our line in the sand.
If you need a snack, make it a 50g chunk of protein. Go for the protein shake or bar instead of the carbs.
I believe in you.
