MashogaNubianPrince saidI'm sorry but a lot of that I don't understand:
-what is HIIT?
-When you were referring to those rations like the 40/30/40 is that referring to like the calorie, Carb and fat intake?
-mono and poly sources...like complex and simple carbs and sugars right?
-what is nil saturated fat?
-are there certain foods that are slow release carbs or are you saying I should small amounts of carbs throughout the day?
-what are slow release carbs? Which foods are they?
Ah I was too technical, sorry about that.
HIIT - High Intensity Interval Training, it's basically like doing cardio in a high intensity way with breaks in between or lighter cardio. It's effective because it doesn't take as long therefore you don't need as much carbs to give you the energy to do it and hence you can restrict your eating and still have energy to do it!
mono and poly = avocado, olives, oily fish, nuts, seeds, do not omit these from the diet
saturated fat = avoid full fat cheeses, meat fats, polony, salami, creamy sauces, full cream dairy, anything deep fried or most commercial prepared snacks, biscuits etc
complex carbs (ie slow release) = sweet potato, brown rice, brown pasta (although white pasta is ok), legumes, fruit, dairy, quinoa, oats/muesli, wholegrain bread etc. These are fine in moderation and should be spread out during the day, I'd have more before and after your workout and less at night
simple carbs = anything with added refine sugar, white bread, lollies, white rice etc, AVOID!
