Getting a Model Physique
5) Follow the 90/10 rule
The last optimal eating guideline for this article is:
6) Plan, Plan, Plan, and look after YOU!
You are the model, look after yourself. It doesn't matter what other people eat, but it matters what you eat.
I know we are all busy. And I'm not saying you need to plan gourmet meals or even weigh out everything you eat. Who has the time or interest in that?
But you do need to plan for how you are going to make sure you get the best food into you.
Make a list of groceries that you need from the store each week. If you are still living at home, make sure your mom or dad knows what you'd like to eat, and make sure those things are available, so that you aren't tempted by other less ideal foods.
Plan for your lunch and snacks and bring food with you wherever you go. You know how shoots can go, maybe you will get a chance to stop for food, maybe you won't. You may not even get a choice of what is offered for lunch that day. Don't leave your food options to other people.
Always bring something so that you are prepared, no matter what.
As I mentioned, apples, almonds, energy bars and even yogurt are very portable. Make sure you take care of yourself.
Yes this takes planning and yes this may be harder than relying on others, but who said it was easy to be a model?
Follow these guidelines and your body will burn fuel efficiently, you'll feel good and you'll look even better.
There are many other things that are important in creating and maintaining your optimum physique. Some of these include exercise, metabolic rate, keeping stress in check and sleep. I will touch on more of those topics in future articles.
