Stocked for Fat Loss?
If your partner put this under the tree for you, I would toss the partner first then the Doritos
Is your kitchen stocked with the right stuff to help you acheive and maintain a lean, fierce physique?
Testosterone Nation asked the pros what their fat loss essentials were. Here's what I had to say:
The WORK required to get lean is usually not done in the kitchen, but I have been known to bust out a few burpees while my chicken is cooking.
There are a lot of components that go into building a lean body, but here are a few that I believe your kitchen absolutely must have:
1. A CLEAN pantry — trigger foods keep your abs in hibernation. Replace cheats with clean treats like coconut milk and Metabolic Drive pudding that will keep you primed for fat loss and prepped to ward off the crap cravings.
2. A STOCKED supplement cabinet. Abs = 75% nutrition + 20% training + 5% supplementation. That 5% can make you or break you. Peaking requires a targeted supplement strategy.
3. A SUPPORTIVE partner, not one inhaling Doritos and saying, "C'mon baby, you only live once!" Ditch them! Find someone equally hot for clean food, insane training, and intelligent supplementation.
Here's more from my colleagues.
