I did a lot of crazy things when I was a bodybuilder.
I ate 7 times a day, sometimes waking up in the middle of the night to have an extra meal.
I did two hours of cardio per day, on top of working out, when I was in the final stretch of a contest prep.
I've even eaten well over 450g of protein per day consistently for over years at a time.
But there's one thing I never did...
And that's skipped meals to lose weight.
Yet, I see it all the time from people thinking that if they skip a meal, they're going to reduce their overall caloric intake and lose weight a bit more easily.
"I'll just skip lunch today since I didn't bring anything." - said a person making a mistake.
No, not because skipping a meal slows your metabolism down, but because of the way it influences your hunger, blood sugar, and energy levels. You may not be hungry at the moment, and that makes skipping lunch easy.
But you're going to be hungry later - and it's going to influence you to make a poor decision. Especially if you're low on energy, tired after a long day of work, and used up all your willpower earlier in the day.
Because when you let your hungry get too strong, you make bad choices.
I get it, you can't always be prepared. So here's a trick that I use.
I keep Isothority on hand with baggies of cashews. When I can't eat a meal, I can definitely have a protein shake and some cashews.
It helps to fill me up, fuels my brain and my body, and provides healthy nutrients that I wouldn't have otherwise - and it's not that calorically dense.
The flexibility with Isothority is incredible, and something you will always want to keep on hand. For post workout nutrition, for your sweet tooth, and to boost protein in any meal.
