As with resistance training… I take an evidence based approach to nutrition. Sure I’ll take some advice from my fellow bro’s from time to time… but my nutritional foundation is built on science.
The diet industry is plagued by dogma, misleading claims, and flat out bull shit…
…Which is why I found it incredibly refreshing to see my colleagues Eric Helms, Alan Aragon, and Peter Fitschen provide detailed nutrition guidelines based on their review on a wide body of fat loss research.
I highly recommend you read this absolutely incredible, free, open source, research review paper called…
Although the paper focuses on bodybuilding contest prep… I believe the advice is VERY applicable to anyone going through a cutting phase… especially if you are already fairly lean and going for six pack abs.
It’s a solid… ridiculously in depth read. Be prepared to set aside an hour to really soak up the evidence based material.
I share my thoughts and break down the research in a video here…
The recommendations and guidelines shared in Eric, Alan, and Peter’s research review are spot on with the approach I am taking during my current cutting phase… and producing exceptional results.
The #1 recommendation… take a slow and steady (gradual) approach to fat loss…
…and I couldn’t agree more!
Here’s a fantastic info graphic created by Aaron Isaacs… which summarizes the key highlights from the research review paper…
Take your time soaking up all this evidence based nutrition knowledge and be sure to share your thoughts and feedback… in addition to any aha moments.
