Ahh Thanksgiving, for me that means one thing…. PUMPKIN PIE! Anyone that knows me knows I have no problem downing a full pumpkin pie with some chocolate milk. You may be asking yourself well how can he eat so much and not get fat, right. The beauty of studying the body is you learn hacks that allow you to manipulate your body and nutritional habits so that you can have your pie and eat it too.
One important factor is that I make sure I time my workout and pie eating very calculated so that my muscles will be utilizing that pumpkin pie and not my fat cells.
This is why I decided to put together my “Fighters Guide” on Healthy Thanksgiving hacks. As mentioned before, the workout and nutrition timing play a key role as well as what kind of workout we are going to do. The goal here is the execute a total body energy depleting workout that will drain our glycogen storage’s in our muscles so that when we take down that pumpkin pie the sugar will get delivered to the muscles as oppose to being turned into fat. – Reference
