1 – Use vinegar to get lean and build muscle.
Take 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before you go to bed. It’ll lower your fasting blood sugar the next morning by 4 to 6 percent. We only want blood sugar spikes post workout to drive nutrients to our muscles which will promote growth. The rest of the day we want out blood sugar levels to be steady.
2 – Eat broccoli and cauliflower to grow more muscle.
Eating some cooked cauliflower and broccoli every day inhibits a protein called myostatin, thus allowing muscles to grow beyond their normal genetic limitations. Who doesn’t want that?!
3 – Cook rice this way to drop fat
If you boil rice in water mixed with coconut oil, you change the architecture of the rice, turning it into a “resistant starch.” It becomes even more resistant if you then refrigerate it for 12 hours and reheat it before eating. By doing so, you actually reduce the available calories in it by anywhere from 10 to 50%, depending on the variety of rice. Especially important if you’re looking to cut, energy for fewer calories.
4 – Eat chicken skin.
This has been a misconception for decades that eating the skin on a chicken breast will make you fat. A chicken breast is lean, skin or no skin, and leaving the skin on only adds about 50 calories, depending on the size of the bird. What’s more, about 55% of the fat in the skin is monounsaturated. Thus adding to your daily total of “healthy fats”.
5 – Wake up and drink
Drink 500ml of water upon waking. This kickstarts your internal processes for the day and gets your metabolism firing. You should be aiming for 2-3 litres of water a day anyway so might as well start early!
