I need some advice on the 'management' of certain foods that I would avoid if I was perfect.
Jillian, I'm waiting for your book to arrive *impatiently* but, can anyone tell me if this issue is addressed? I know that my focus needs to be on healthy eating and intense training (all good so far) but I'm not sure what to do about naughty foods. I would like to know how someone like Jillian.. fit and lean.. approaches this. I know that some programs have a 'free day' but this doesn't work for me. So.. what do people do?
Is it best just to harden up and forget about chocolate ganache? or..
have a system... one meal a week, only on special occassions or what? I'd just like to know what is working for people.
I'm in the process of losing those last 15lbs that keep recurring.
Question for Jillian. You say that you maintain on 1600 cals a day, exercising 4 days a week. I think my maintenance will be about the same (unfortunately..). Do you eat less on your rest days and more on training days? Do you still monitor your calories or is it pretty much hardwired into your brain now and you don't need to give it so much conscious thought?
The reason I ask is because I have repeatedly met my goal weight and failed to maintain it, even with exercise. The problem is nutrition. It's really frustrating. It takes a lot of work to get there and then .. what? I need to organise my brain now so that when I get there again I know how to proceed. I want to know what successful maintainers do!
I'm really looking forward to the book arriving, I've heard soooo many people raving about it, including my man.. he was appreciating the cover art greatly.
