ERF Nutrition Hierarchy Series 4/4 – Micronutrients, Meal Timing, Supplements

These things MATTER, just not nearly as much as the previous 3 subject covered in this series.

Meaning if you don’t have the mindset, calories, and macros down,

It doesn’t matter if you fast, do Keto, eat 3 or 5 meals a day, you won’t reach your goals until you get the previous things in check first.

This is the last part of building a house. This is adding the decorations, picking out what kitchen table your wife wants, filling the final steps to make it a HOME, not just a house.

That being said, these things play an ever vital role in ensuring you can perform optimally, adhere to the plan you have created for calories/macros, help fight hunger and exhaustion.

Being tired and hungry are main reasons why people do not stick to a diet.

Micronutrients, meal timing, supplements, are all things you can manipulate to better fuel your body, leading to feeling better, leading to more adherence, and finally leading to more results.

Take your time to go back and listen to the 3 previous implements of this series.

Go get your head straight first. None of this will matter if you cannot mentally prepare yourself to make a change.

Understand what calories are, why they are so important, and how many YOU need to see your goal.

Then dive into what makes up that calories in macros, and how you can manipulate them for your goal.

Then finally, come back here and finish putting the pieces of the puzzle together. 

If you have followed this series and are still having trouble creating your plan, feel free to reach out to me with any questions and I would be happy to help. 

Happy Eating, -E.

ERF 014: A Smarter Approach To Diets W/ Stan Efferding

Often times when dieting “fitness gurus” lead people down a road that is widely unsustainable, and downright unhealthy.

Depriving and Over Restricting is not the way to lose weight *and keep it off*.

This episode with Stan Efferding is something I am incredibly humbled and excited to bring to you guys. 

Stan brings a whole new element to the game. 

He preaches health first and foremost when starting anything fitness related.

He backs the Vertical Diet, the diet he created, with years and years of research and scientific studies.

He takes the “diet” term to a whole new level, creating a foundation that provides HEALTH first, then fat loss or muscle gain second.

But the health part never changes, because without that, nothing can work.

This podcast is PACKED with information, actionable tips, great stories, and a whole new way to view your diet.

There seriously is a lot of information, so might want to go back and re listen to certain parts. Stan does a great job of going in depth and provide the whole picture. 

You are going to want to share this one with a friend when you are done.. and you’ll know why. Let me know what you think.

And don’t be afraid to leave a 5 star rating and review if you enjoyed it. Thanks. -E.
