The Fit Food Re-Start Program…

The Program takes an approach which encourages a more natural and intuitive style of eating. This means no calorie or macro counting and it is suitable for most people. It allows for more flexibility and ownership in developing your ideal way of eating.

The Program is a two-phase program:

Phase 1: Fat Adaption process (4 weeks)
Phase 2: Low Carb High Fat (4 weeks)

In order to be successful in the program, you must be able to follow a LCHF menu,  commit to weekly short High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) sessions (that can be done at our Moonee Ponds studio OR from home without any equipment) and commit to intermittent fasting.

What is LCHF?

LCHF sounds like a fad but, in reality, it reflects the way we used to eat prior to the 1960s. Then, in the 1960’s, the low fat diet was introduced and lifestyle diseases have been on the rise ever since. The latest research has also shown that low fat is not conducive to long term weight loss so it’s time to put the low fat diet to bed. LCHF was the diet most people followed prior to the “low fat revolution” and it’s time to return to this way of eating.

LCHF is essentially about 4 keys things:
  1. Removing processed carbohydrate
  2. Increasing unprocessed saturated fat content
  3. Removing processed polyunsaturated fats/oils
  4. Ultimately eating an unprocessed diet

To find out more, you can watch my video on LCHF.

Remember, food is to be enjoyed, and that’s a central tenant of our philosophy!

What is HIIT?

Intensity is king! Our body only responds to stimulus and when we train, that stimulus is the intensity. If your weights are too light or your heart rate is too low, you simply will not achieve the results you’re after. After years of listening to people tell me about their lack of results, I am convinced they were not training at the right intensity. HIIT training ensures you will be working hard enough AND you don’t have to do a long session. Short and sweet – perfect for the busy person!

The research is also very clear on the benefits of HIIT. HIIT has been shown to improve fitness quickly and efficiently, whilst keeping people interested and engaged. Cardiovascular fitness offers protection against cardiovascular disease and every year, 33% of all deaths in Australia are due to cardiovascular disease. The latest research has shown that the number 1 risk factor for all-cause mortality (i.e. all reasons for death) is LOW CARDIOVASCULAR FITNESS. This makes HIIT a no-brainer.

Frequently asked questions

My family thinks i am going to kill myself by eating fat. What can i tell them?
The theory that fat causes cardiovascular disease (CVD) has never been proven and therefore, lacks scientific validation.  A meta-analysis in 2010, which looked at over 300 000 people, could not find any correlation between saturated fat intake and cardiovascular disease. The Framingham Study also found that those in their cohort, who ate more fat, were the slimmest and the healthiest. More studies have also found that saturated fat does not raise blood triglycerides but that it is sugar (particularly fructose) that is able to do this.  High intake of sugar is able to increase the risk for cardiovascular disease as it causes LDL-p (LDL particle number) to elevate and promotes metabolic syndrome (low HDL, high triglycerides, high waist circumference, high blood pressure and insulin resistance).

Can i ever eat sugar again?
Absolutely! It would be a sad life to never eat anything sugary ever again but it is an absolute no-no during our 8-week program. We do this to help you break the sugar habit and to help with adaption process that your taste buds will go through. After 8 weeks of no sugar (and limited sweet foods) you will find many sugary foods, you used to eat, too sweet for you. This will help keep you away from them in the future.

Can I do your program without going to the gym?
Absolutely! All our programs are designed to be done anywhere – at home, in the park or at the gym. New programs are available every fortnight and require minimal equipment.

How often should i be exercising?
We recommend starting with 1-2 of our high intensity sessions and building into 3-4. Our sessions are only 15-30 minutes duration and can be done from your home, or the park or anywhere you like!

Why do you encourage high intensity training?
High intensity training has been scientifically shown to improve cardiovascular fitness quickly and efficiently. With cardiovascular disease being the number one killer globally, it makes sense to focus on cardiovascular fitness. High intensity training also improves metabolic risk factors (increases HDL, lowers triglycerides, lowers blood pressure and improves insulin sensitivity) more effectively than lower intensity training. High intensity training will also ensure that you will increase lean tissue which makes you a better fat burner!

Is it ok to do low intensity training?
Of course! We do encourage you to add in a couple of our high intensity sessions however as the intensity is the key to you changing your body. Only when the intensity is correct, will you see fitness improvements and the building of lean tissue. If the intensity is too low, you won’t get these changes. However low intensity exercise has lots of health benefits to and compliment our HIIT programs perfectly.
