Accelerator Days and What They Should Look Like


In order to keep you motivated and not becoming de motivated after a day of bad eating, or if you have been away for a weekend down the coast we recommend doing what we call and "Accelerator Day". We have been preaching Accelerator Days at Vision for a long time but rarely are they done properly. Today we will focus on working together on preparing an Accelerator day and home work will be for you to prepare another 2 for me on your own.


On these days, we recommend that all your meals and snacks include only high protein / low carbohydrate foods. For example, eggs, cheese, beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, pork, tuna, salmon, nuts and low carbohydrate protein bars /drinks. Carbohydrate foods such as starch based vegetables, fruits, breads, rice, pasta, potatoes and cereals should not be eaten on these days.


In order to remain satisfied and keep your metabolism elevated, ensure that you have at least six servings \ of high protein / low carbohydrate foods per day. That is, breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, and evening snack. If you still feel hungry when eating six servings per day, you should simply add another high protein / low carbohydrate snack. This will also help you to achieve and maintain a state of ketosis, which is essential to the fat burning process. Do not eat high carbohydrate foods to satisfy your hunger.


As your body begins to utilize fat as a fuel source rather than carbohydrates, it is not uncommon for you to feel more fatigued and light headed so we recommend that you do these days when you're not training weights or hard cardio at the studio. Walking and light to moderate activity is still ok on these days.
