When executing a physique transformation there are alot of things that can get in your way. While there are strategies to overcome potential derailment, there are also strategies to overcome short forays off the chosen path. I believe the later to be the most important.
Regaining Physique Transformation Momentum
The list of things that can derail you from your physique transformation is long and involved. Among the top items on the list would be holidays, visits from family or friends you have not seen in some time and spur of the moment food decisions. Each of these can be dealt with by the same method. If you make the choice (and it is a choice) to go off your plan, you need to find a way to regain the momentum you previously had. This is important to do as quickly as possible so that you do not continue to stay off your plan.
Short Fast for Physique Transformation Focus Shift
If you go away for a holiday weekend like I just did for the 4th of July and you stray from your plan a bit, a brief fast (1 day) is a great way to let your body recalibrate and get back on your plan. You can stop eating for 24 hours and then resume with your scheduled plan. This enables your body to purge the excess food you took in while keeping you focused on your body and what it needs.
While I am not a big fan of fasting as a regular part of your nutritional plan, I think that short, well-timed fasts can play a role in reestablishing focus on your ultimate physique transformation goal. Your brief one day fast will get your focus back and enable you to continue the path you had previously established.
Meal Replacement Shakes for Physique Transformation Reenergization
If fasting just gets to you and you can't do it, try using protein shakes for a full day just to reconnect with your body and the plan you had for transforming your physique. You will drastically drop calories and especially carbs with this approach. If you are like me and you have overdone the carbs during your holiday, this will get you back on track and fast! At the same time, you will be providing your body with the nourishment it needs. I also add ground flax seeds to the shakes to give myself some fiber and fat content.
React Quickly for Physique Transformation Success
Regardless of what you do, you need to react quickly or run the risk of permanently being derailed. Our minds are interesting things. When we make choices that go against what we planned to do our mind tends to make us feel very badly about those choices. This can tend to make us give up on our plan entirely. This is why a quick reaction to the issue is essential to future success.By jumping on it right away and correcting the problem, you override your mind's tricks. Thus, remember to get back on the plan as soon as you can.
