Break the Rules; Have a Burger. (And Still Get Ripped!)

Can you eat like a pig and still reach your physique goals? The truth will shock you!

Eat carbs and lose weight - get ripped
The Rule-Breaking Burger

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love following the rules. For those of you who don't know me, I'll tell you how much I love it: exactly zero.

If you haven't noticed by now, this is kind of my thing. An irreverent approach to fitness. And it is in that spirit that I present a recipe which has nothing to do with "healthy" food at all. Instead, I am using my bangin' burger recipe to introduce one of my favorite health hacks: Carb Backloading.

Carb Backloading is a concept created by a fitness science nerd by the name of John Kiefer. There is a ton of info that he has compiled on it and, to do it properly, you do have to follow a few... well... rules. Sorry. I can't eliminate them all. But the basic concept is this:

  • Keep your carbs low throughout the day (30g or less)

  • Workout pretty hard (preferably in the late afternoon or early evening)

  • Eat way more carbs for the rest of the evening than you could possibly believe you're allowed to

I'm very enthusiastic about the Carb Backloading system, but this is just one of several different methods of something called "carb manipulation." And it's something that can even be effective for people who aren't working out at all but still trying to lose body fat. If you want to learn more about carb manipulation, I'll include some links for you at the end of this post.

But wait, there's more!! This is a two for one special! I've included my homemade mayonnaise that's gonna blow your socks all the way off and two blocks over.

So how about we get this party started, then?!
