The "No Snack Diet", your key to a great body, enduring performance and fantastic health!
When I woke this morning, I was not hungry, so I got stuck straight into work. By 11 am I was hungry, so I had a good feed. So much for breakfast being the most important meal of the day!
While in my 20's and running marathon consistently faster than 2 hours and 40 minutes, my weight was 60-61 Kg. I was like a salty pretzel.
By 50 years of age, my weight had climbed to about 64-65 kg and I was not healthy. I began measuring my body fatness. I also began questioning what I had learned about nutrition while at university, including the need to snack. What I was doing and what I was telling my clients to do was clearly not working for me!
From 60 years of age, my body fat had declined from 17% down to about 8% and I now weigh from 61-63 kg. I carry more muscle now than during my 20's and this is despite not having stepped inside a gym in the last 15 years!
This goes completely against everything we are told about what happens to our bodies as we age: we lose lean tissue and we gain fat!
I'll tell you what I did with my diet to reverse this process of decline (of course, I did a whole lot more including diet, but the way we eat is hugely important).
