This is the part of getting fit/losing weight that is the hardest part for a lot of people, and I’m completely with you on that. I personally like to drink, just as any self-respecting Brit does, and there is no chance I’m cutting that out of my diet. No thank you sir! Fortunately for me, I have no problem with eating healthy so the alcohol isn’t that big of a deal.
Of course it is ideal to cut alcohol out of your diet as it contains a serious amount of calories. It is also highly recommended that you don’t eat a lot of fast foods. This means no maccy D’s, no fried chicken and no other food that actually tastes good. But.. that would make life suck right? I propose that you go ahead and eat and drink whatever you want (within reason), but do so in moderation.

You don’t need to follow any strict eating plans necessarily, but for an afterburn effect diet there is a simple rule to follow:
Carbohydrates are important for exercise because they make glucose, which is the fuel for your body and you would have no energy without it. Carbs are best found in:
You can also find carbs in foods with added sugars such as cakes, sweets and soda’s. However the nutritional value is a lot worse in these foods.
Protein is what your body needs to repair and keep cells healthy. When exercising (weight training in particular), your need for protein rises because your body needs to also repair the muscle tissue. Proteins are best found in:
You can also get protein from rice, dry beans and sweetcorn, but these foods contain much less protein than the ones listed.
Following this simple diet will ensure that your body has all the energy it needs for your high intensity workouts. It will also make sure that your body has enough protein to feed your muscles after your workouts.
Diet is not always easy to follow though and I appreciate that. You won’t always have time to cook a meal. Your friends might tempt you into some fast food. And who doesn’t like to drink?! Just follow these rules the best you can, and try to avoid overindulging. That way you can still lose weight but enjoy life at the same time! Strict diets suck anyway!
