I have seen and heard HORROR stories when it comes to the drastic things athletes will do to make weight. I am here to tell you that you SHOULD NOT do anything drastic to cut weight, if it means you are going to sacrifice your HEALTH and your PERFORMANCE.
The good news?
There are scientifically-proven methods that are SAFE and EFFECTIVE for you to drop unwanted weight, while still keeping your energy high and performance on point + I’m sharing them with you below.
👎🏼BAD WAYS TO CUT WEIGHT: Anything that involves you starving or dehydrating yourself for days.
👍🏼GOOD WAYS TO CUT WEIGHT:
1️⃣Low carb/High Fat:
Using ketones for energy leads to more energy, more focus, fat loss, and decreased inflammation.This approach is phenomenal for short-term weight loss (like cutting 2-3 pounds for an tournament 1-2 weeks out)
Carb cycling is a form of carb control by simply manipulating your carbohydrate intake to maximize your fat loss. This basically translates to alternating between low carb and high carb days to keep the metabolism efficient.
Research shows that exercising in a fasted state increases both fat break down and fat burning for energy. By strategically placing your workouts around your fasted state, you can burn tons of fat!
High intensity interval training is a proven workout method to help you maintain your hard-earned muscle, while decreasing fat, especially while in a caloric deficit. HIIT burns calories during your workout and AFTER your workout, which assists in your total daily calorie burn.
I used ALL of these methods when cutting for light-feather this past year & not only did I make weight, but I had ZERO health side effects and my hormones were 100% in tact.
