The ‘Six Meals a Day’ Diet

very healthy meals, great for a six meals per day plan!

A ‘six-meals-a-day diet’ is one of your best options for losing body fat and gaining lean muscle mass quickly. While many diet plans call for eating just 1 – 3 times per day, that may not be the best option if your goal is to lose body fat and increase lean muscle mass at the same time (the key to look and feeling great).

Many bodybuilders, fitness competitors, and athletes eat 6 times per day. And there’s a reason for that: it works extremely well. Fueling your body with frequent small meals and snacks — spaced 2 or 3 hours apart — is one of the most effective ways to keep your metabolism boosted, speed muscle repair/growth, and maintain high energy levels throughout the day.

The Simplest Way to Lose Weight

Weight loss is simple. Very, very simple… if you let it be.

Most people over-complicate the process of losing weight. They end up tired, frustrated, and demotivated.

Elaborate and expensive supplementation regimens can speed up fat loss, but most of the time the real benefits are minimal.

Too much complexity is a killer when it comes to fitness and weight loss. So let’s remove complexity right now and choose the super-simple path.

The simplest way to lose weight —not to mention one of the easiest, safest, and healthiest— is to eat very high quality, natural, unprocessed food at least 90% of the time.

Most people have heard the term “runner’s high” — the euphoric state a long-distance runner experiences during a long run — but many don’t really know very much about it. What is it exactly? What happens during the “high?” Do only runners get to enjoy it? Is there a way to trigger it automatically?

And, maybe most important of all, how can this unique feeling be used to get into even better shape?

Here are some frequently asked questions and their answers…

Where Does the Term Come From?

It was during the original 1970’s “running boom” that the term “runner’s high” became popular. It was even mentioned in the 1st bible of running: The Complete Book on Running, by Jim Fixx. In those early days, many hard-core distance runners became well-known for acting like “junkies” who were always chasing their next “high”… in other words, their next hard workout or race!
