This week the ADOFitness trainers will be addressing some of the topics we get asked a lot of questions about. Coach Jennifer Ann NPC Bikini Competitor explains what reverse dieting is.
Let’s talk about reverse dieting. I’m sure you’re seeing a lot of posts talking about it. After a competitor comes off a calorie restricted diet one way to avoid metabolic damage and post show rebound is to slowly add calories back in at a rate that minimal weight gain occurs. Reverse dieting helps prevent fast weight gain since the body is in a fragile state post show. This can prevent depression and the individual can maintain a body their comfortable with. What’s neat is anybody ( not just competitors) on a calorie restricted diet can benefit from a reverse diet. Most people cannot sustain low calorie intake for a long period of time. Putting them on reverse diet and increasing their intake will allow them to live life normally be happy and eat more food. If weekly adjustments are made and the individual adheres to the plan their metabolism can recover, more food can be enjoyed and with minimal fat gain. Reverse diet for the win🙌plus it’s so fun feeding people😜 🍐🥒🍇🍞🍖🥙🌯🥙🥘🍙🍕
