Hey Mike! Great articles and I think I will buy your book. But I’m confused on something. I have a very, very slow metabolism and read your article “How to Speed Up Your Metabolism” on muscle for life. So, I know I need to keep the metabolism up and up my calories. But your sample meal plan listed here (which is 140 g breakfast, light salad, whey, dinner, and some protein) is really, really light. I’m guessing this is 1,500 calories, if that, which is highly restrictive. How do you reconcile the two articles? And since I’m a hair shy of 6′ and 200 lbs 20% bf, is 1,500 cal the right fat loss calorie target for me?

Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that your body can’t digest, and it helps regulate the body’s use of sugar as it slowly passes through your digestive system. Increasing your daily fiber intake can result in greater satisfaction after meals, less blood-sugar spiking and crashing, and subsequent reductions in the amount of calories eaten for the rest of the day. When trying to trim belly fat, aim to get at least 25 grams of fiber in your diet each day. Foods that are rich in fiber include pulses, like lentils and beans; apples and pears, with the skin; nuts and seeds; and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Try this recipe for Tabbouleh with Chickpeas for a fiber-packed side dish or a one-dish dinner!

People with chronically high levels of the stress hormone cortisol tend to carry excess visceral fat. Foods that are high on the index (GI), which uses a ranking system of 0 to 100, cause more rapid spikes in your blood sugar, in turn triggering the release of cortisol when glucose levels crash. The constant up and down of your blood sugar levels can also lead to insulin resistance — the first step on the road to type 2 diabetes. To help keep cortisol levels stable, choose low-GI foods (with a rating of 55 or less) like beans, lentils, and chickpeas, instead of high-GI options like white rice and potatoes. To find the GI rating of your foods, use the University of Sydney’s database at glycemicindex.com.
