Which Diet is Best for you? – Excessive Exercise (The “no diet” diet)
Less is more
Originally I compiled all the information, on the world’s most popular diets, in my DIET HARD series but on review, the post lacked some punch.
So I’ve broken them up into their own bite size sections, hopefully giving you the chance to focus on the specific ones that interest you the most.
Remember, this information is here to give you an understanding of how these plans work and the type of people most likely to use them. Unlike many other sites, they also give you some of the stumbling blocks associated that cause people to either quit, or relapse weight wise.
The goal is to pick a diet that fits you. One you are most likely to stick to based on your habits, ethics and lifestyle. otherwise there is no point,
So be honest with yourselves to see whether you can juggle the pros and cons of each before making your decision.
The MC Hammers (The Excessive Exercisers)
Stop, you can’t touch it.
That’s right, these are the people who don’t touch or mess around with their food at all. Instead they decide to get SUPER active and burn so many calories that it doesn’t matter what they eat and how much of it they consume. They won’t put on anything and start shrink wrapping themselves down to an optimal size and shape.
You normally find these individuals will train for multiple hours a day (at least 4 hours), every single day and are generally associated with activities like
- Weight training
- MC Hammer
- Rock Climbing
- Track and field / Athletics
- Mixed Martial arts / MMA
- Professional dancing
- Gym class freaks
- Endurance athletes
These are society’s creme de la creme, those lucky fucks we always ask wuestions like, how can they eat what they want and their answers are always
‘I’m just lucky I guess 🙂 ‘
Well guess what, as soon as they stop playing sports, their activity level drops like shit but their eating habits generally remain. The piper always comes to collect and if they are not careful enough to modify their intake, they’ll be marching to a different tune. Just look what happened to Olympic elite, Ian Thorpe below when he stopped swimming on a regular basis.
You also find the physiques they obtain are heavily related around the activity they are involved in. So a cyclist will end up with a very different figure to a rower or a mixed martial artist or a dancer. Just something to point out. Engaging in something that involves the full body may provide a more appealing figure.
It’s a good method if you have the time to be that active but unless your lifestyle is based around a sports orientated goal, I’m not sure how much it will help.
Of course this method, in a reduced state, will help you achieve your calorific deficit without having to just restrict your food consumption. Saying that, even walking for about an hour/90 minutes a day would help so you don’t always have to go all crazy to get the results you want.
This would be an ideal approach but I’d be wary to put all your eggs in one basket, I’ve literally seen people balloon overnight once the activity levels drop or they happen to have an injury.
In short, get more active to help achieve your deficit but if you rely on it fully, you may be in for a surprise when you stop. At best, you may only be delaying the inevitable..
