Men Over 40: 5 Steps To Hitting The 'Standard' (15% Body Fat) *Thread:

Biologically, our body fat set-points are 7-15%, with Men Over 40 leaning into the higher end of that range.

In recent times, our ACTUAL body fat %'s have deviated from this.

Largely due to:
A) A sugar-filled world (your environment), and;

B) Societal Programming (all your friends, family & co-workers are gaining weight with age)

It's time to get back down to where we belong - lean, healthy and chiselled.

Here's how:
#1) Start Off With The 16:8 Model

This means 16 hrs fasted, 8 hours eating (in the afternoon/evening).

It's the simplest version of IF.

And it's very effective.

It's a great introduction to easy, effortless fat loss, and naturally reducing your hunger.

#2) Train 3 Full-Body Workouts Per Week

Train more frequently than this, and:

- You won't recover
- Your strength will suffer
- You won't have time (esp. if you have kids)

3 FB workouts is the 'sweet spot', and you'll gain muscle nicely.

Here's a great example of a program that maximises your:

- Recovery
- Strength & muscle
- Testosterone (and stress minimisation)
- Time efficiency

Specifically designed for Men Over 40:…
#3) Perform Daily Calorie-Burning Activity

This is absolutely critical for Men Over 40 who tend to have slower metabolisms.

Whether its:

- Walking
- Swimming
- Cycling
- Martial arts

Or a combination, just get it done.

#4) Gradually Reduce Your Weekly Alcohol Consumption

A lot of Men Over 40 love whiskey.

But if it's a regular thing, it's going to make hitting 15% bf a hell of a lot harder.

A few weeks of 'dryness' will kickstart your results.

#5) Shift Over To OMAD (One Meal A Day)

I recommend doing this after you've lost the 'easier weight', which seems to be about 15-35 pounds for the majority of guys (depending on your starting point).

OMAD is very powerful, even more so when you're already used to IF.

You've got to make sure that your protein DOES NOT FALL, while transitioning.

It's difficult to eat loads of meat in a short space of time, but it must be done.

If you're over 40 and you want to get:

+ Leaner
+ Better-looking
+ Healthier
+ Rid of your Dad Bod
