The most simple way to explain how calorie management works is to compare it with money management.
You get a certain amount of money you can spend every month. If you spend all you money in the beginning of the month, you won’t have anything left for the rest of the month. You can get a loan which leads to credit debt.
Now back to calorie management;
Your maintenance level allows you to spend a certain amount of calories on food every day. If you eat all your calories in the beginning of the day, you won’t have any calories left for the rest of the day. You can go over calories, but that will result in fat storage.
Your fat storage is basically the credit debt that you built.
Now let’s add the concept of intermittent fasting to this scenario;
You can save most of your money until the end of the month and use the last couple of days to ‘ball out’. The days that you saved up are totally worth the fun you have at the end of the month and there’s a payday waiting for you afterwards. (Guilt free spending)
Intermittent fasting could be part of your Calorie management. Instead of eating breakfast (which literally means break fast) you skip breakfast and try to postpone you first meal as long as you can. You save calories at the beginning of the day so you can enjoy more and calorie denser foods at the end of the day. Such as cookies, pizza etc.
There are certain rules you have to follow while intermittent fasting. Get one of my programs if you’d like to know more about that.
Hope that this comparison made it a little easier to understand all this.
Last thing before I leave;
Saving up on money even after the month is over allows you to ‘stack money’... you can compare this with fatloss.
If you have calories left at the end of the day and you decide not to eat them...do it for a longer period of time and you’ll start losing weight 😉
