So we’ve been asked the question how should you eat after Sportfasting’s ‘Make the switch’. I think some people are worried they’ll go back to the way they were shortly after the program unless they follow some strict diet. It would be quite a thing if you had to keep the same diet from the 10 day program for the rest of your life in order to keep the benefits it helped give you. Luckily that’s not the case because while the weight loss and endurance benefits are great eating like you did in the program for the rest of your life is not too exciting.
There are a few basics you can follow so that the weight stays off and you stay an endurance god. A few examples are:
- Limit sugary foods and pasta.
- Best not to eat fruit at night.
- Skip one lunch or supper a week.
- If you want to snack eat nuts instead of chocolate.
- Read food ingredients. I have seen fat free hot chocolate. What I can tell you is that it’s loaded with calories and sugar and has a high glycemic index. The sugar which will probably end up as fat anyway because you won’t use all of it.
- This isn’t to say you can’t eat anything you did before, but moderate the obvious bad things like cake and chocolates. The good thing is that after the program your body hopefully won’t crave sugar as much and it will be easier to avoid these things.
We’ll send tips to anyone who does Sportfasting ‘Make the switch’ but follow these and you’re about there anyway.
Simply put Sportfasting will help you lose a pile of weight or greatly improve endurance in 10 days. Once you’re done with the program you don’t need to live like a monk, differently, but not like a monk. What’s more you are welcome to ask us questions whenever you want, we want it to work for you.
On December 12 last year we sent you a link about ‘Team Belkin’ professional and Tour de France cycling team are using Sportfasting, click ‘Team Belkin using Sportfasting’ if you’d like to read it again or haven’t read it. It’s in Dutch so probably best to open with Google Chrome which will translate if for you. Last month Theo Bos of Team Belkin won a stage at ‘Tour de Lankawi’, click ‘victory’ to read about it. We don’t know, but we’ll say it’s because of Sportfasting.
