  1. Hey Matt, thanks for posting. It can tell it will be much easier if it feels like others are in the same boat. When are the days that you are planning on fasting?

  2. Thanks Matt. Helpful stuff.
    My schedule isn’t gonna allow the double fasts the last week, so I’m gonna bite the bullet and do them in weeks 1 and 3–fasting Tues-Wed, Thurs-Fri this week. Might even do it week 2 as well.
    Anything I’m missing that is gonna make this problematic?

  3. Matt, I’m on board since 4 April. Already did the 44 (ended up being 48) hour fast. Wasn’t as difficult as I thought. Still trying to figure out how to manage resting / training day meals since my life involves so many meals with others during the day.

    1. That’s awesome, Ryan! I didn’t know you were on board with us! So glad.

      I find that many people are forgiving of you don’t eat or eat little with them. I also find that being overly stringent with the food is not as helpful as being practical with it. That is, ain’t no harm in eating a salad even if it’s not on your plan. The key is switching between high carb on work days, higher fat on rest days.

      Anything in particular you did to help with the fasting?

Week Three!!

Two take-aways:

1. Self-control. Fasting is more about self-control more than it is about not eating food. Food was meant to serve us. Too often we get that backwards. Remember that what you are learning is that you do not need food as much as you think you need.

2. Feed your mind, not your belly. When you find yourself thinking about food, busy yourself with a project. Find something that will demand your focus–to keep you from fuzzy thinking.

Tomorrow is the Day We Kick It Up a Notch

Friends,

Tomorrow we will enter into the crazy portion of the FatKicker Program. We will start our 40-44 hour fast. No calories. And, please, no diet sodas or 0 calorie food. Chemicals do not have calories, but they are still ingested into your system. And who knows what that is doing to you? Really, a question. Do you know what it does to you? If you have found some good research on this, please put in the comments.

Also, if you have not subscribed yet, please do so at this link. This will mitigate you having to check in to the website everyday. You’ll get updates right in your inbox.

 

 

Bullets from the video:

1. Make a gallon of tea tonight. I make blueberry flavored green tea.

2. Buy some Glutamine.

3. Keep moving. Don’t give in to being sedentary. Just go on an easy walk.

FatKicker Workout Plan

Friends,

Many of you have asked me my workout routine. While you only have lift weights 3 days/week, and walk the other days, I found that building the routine of working out 5 days/week helped me concentrate on different muscle groups and work on building muscle holistically–rather than just focusing on the arms and chest. My workout routine is here. Modify accordingly. I left the way I record the weights and reps so you can modify how you want for the Wednesday routine (Chest & Back). Each tab corresponds to a day of the week (M, T, W, Th, F)

I put this in Google Drive so I don’t have to have clipboard with me and can track as I am doing the workout. You will notice that there are a lot of workouts for each muscle group. I do not do all the workouts on the prescribed days. I shoot for 5-6 of the workouts. If I’m feeling really good, I’ll shoot for all of them. This helps with getting bored with working out, yet continuing to hit the muscles. Of course, after a couple months you will want to mix up your routine to bring on muscle confusion, which helps to continue to build muscle.

Use whatever helps you!

FatKicker Workout Plan

 

Some tips:
1) I take pre-workout drinks before I workout. It gives me energy and preps the blood vessels to bring blood to the muscles for growth.
2) I drink the BCAAs during and after my workout mixed with Glutamine. Your body uses BCAAs for muscle growth. You will thank me for this as your pain after a workout will decrease.
3) I listen to Spotify to help keep me revved up. I will listen to a podcast while I walk for 5-15 minutes (depending on time and how I feel). Then I’ll listen to something that gets me worked up. Yes, I typically listen to Rage Against the Machine and Kaskade and then Bon Iver (for now).
4) You will get the best workout for your muscles if you workout until failure. That is, do you 3-4 sets. And then do one last set until you can’t lift the weight anymore. The sense of accomplishment after a fail set is suprisingly strong.
