There are two things required to lose weight: 1) a calorie deficit and 2) hormonal balance.
The problem with the standard "eat less, exercise more" approach, or the newer updated version "deplete carbs and train intensely" model, is that both easily create the calorie deficit but make the hormonal balance worse not better.
So, what happens? Many people will get results and just as many will stay fat. And for an unlucky minority this bad advice turns into metabolic damage and weight loss resistance.
In this conversation with my good friend and elite Crossfit coach, Brad Davidson we discuss the correct way to pair eating and training for Crossfit or any high output metabolic conditioning.
Brad and I have been at this awhile and frequently connect to learn from each other and share our results from the top level athletes and average fat loss seekers we work with every day.
Here are the high level take aways:
