What To Eat Before And After Your Workout To Maximize Fat Loss – With Thomas DeLauer

Weight Loss Tip:It is important to get enough cobalt in your diet, because it is required for metabolism of the B vitamins, in particular, B12 (also known as cobalamin). It can be found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach. But, the best sources are organ meats, such as livers, kidneys, and hearts.

Hey guys it's Thomas here to show you guys a couple nutrition tips on how to transform your pre-workout meal into fat-burning fuel. Today is all about boosting your metabolism to utilize body fat as your primary energy source.

Video Breakdown:

0:53 – So let's get started with your pre-workout meal choice. My tip here is to try to not combine a protein and carb source as your pre workout meal. By doing this, you are making sure that your body is circulating blood to the muscles instead of to your digestive organs.

2:01 – The reason why I recommend guys to avoid eating protein and carbs together before working out is because the body can not efficiently break down these energy sources at the same time.

2:30 – This is why guys who eat big pre-workout meals tend to get a bloated, upset stomach during their training.

3:00 – What I strongly suggest guys to choose as their pre-workout food source is fruit. The energy from fruit is utilized rapidly.

3:40 – Now if you are in the gym and find yourself bored between sets, I've got a solution for you: stretching.

5:00 – What I recommend doing is stretching the antagonist muscle, or opposing muscle, to the body part you are training. If you are training triceps, stretch your biceps. If you are training back, stretch your chest… This will allow you to actually get a better contraction and pump during your working sets!

6:10 – Now, you can choose a high protein and high fat post workout meal, completely skipping the carbs, if you are looking to burn off body fat fast.

6:50 – And you are in luck because I'm going to show you a great, easy meal to eat after a workout: grass fed beef burgers.

8:04 – Here's how you can make this recipe:
1. Coat your stove top pan with coconut oil
2. In a mixing bowl, add the beef with Himalayan pink salt, turmeric and combine the ingredients into patties
3. Add the burger patties to the heated pan (on medium) and cook until browned on both sides.

10:30 – As always, keep it locked here at Six Pack Shortcuts for all of your weight loss, nutrition and muscle building needs!

  1. Hi Thomas. What should i eat after cardio workout? I do non fasted cardio in the morning. After i wake up I eat a high protein, high fat, low carb meal (usually scrambled eggs with some veggies), then i wait 1-2 hours, then i go walking.

  2. This is too complicated, and more important – only assholes eat animals, I don’t listen to assholes.

  3. Coconut oil fats are saturated fats….!!!? Raising the Bad LDL for your heart…Should Not to be consumed on a daily basis i guess

  4. Dear Six Pack Shortcuts,

    I am body building but at an unaffordable rate. I understand that bodybuilding is very costly but there must be a way for people on a very tight budget. I’m 24 and I desperately want to get big and fit like you guys. Could you please upload a decent and lengthy video for all of us young guys who are aspiring to be ripped and big at an affordable cost? Please man, all of these other websites and Google are NOT giving a clear and straight answer.

  5. I hope that somebody can help me how many body parts I can exercise in a single workout thank you you don’t know how much appreciate you help

  6. on days where it’s impractical to cook something post workout, what would be a good alternative meal?

  7. i cant aford anything grass fed sadly. i only 120 if that a month to spend on food. =/
    and all i have is home workouts its all i can aford to do..

  8. So you eat high fat high protein 20-30 minutes after your workout no carbs and then 2 hours after that high fat low carb when do you eat your carbs

  9. Why do his biceps looks so fake? If they are shaped like that in rest it usually means the use of some aggressive steroids. Now, I am not saying he’s on roids, but it does look really off somehow.

  10. Older lifters have issues with Cholesterol and Salt. We also must keep Carbohydrates under 240 grams.

  11. I’m confused how does separating carbs and proteins by 15 mins make a difference. Doesn’t food sit in your stomach for about four hours? So isn’t all of it going there and mixing and then all is released to the small intestine?

  12. it’s simple if you want to gain lean muscle and target fat loss you need a health and clean habit of eating in the correct portions, eating those foods at certain times, and managing your cheat meals if you do them properly. if you do that and train hard then it’s simple.

  13. So you eat carbs before a workout to get energy and after the workout you eat protein for example a proteinbar, vegatables etc? for the best results?

  14. Textbook and reaserch data nutrition knowledge. Very well presented, scholarly. Thank you for the tips.

  15. Were talking about pre workout food and…. BOOM! quick couple of pressups on a bridge.. thats insane man, you took it to a whole new level! #Savage

  16. Since grass fed beef is expensive. I could just use baked chicken breast and make a kale only smooth. Easy

  17. I don’t see why people criticize Mike Chang and Six Pack Shortcuts. I can understand the criticism for the “Afterburn Effect” and stuffing your face with whatever, but besides that, non of the information we get from these people on this channel is biased.Much respect, keep doing what you guys are doing and bring back Mike!

  18. Good video, but I would add some cartoons or at least a white board and marker because you were flying through all of the molecular jargon.

  19. How much fruit and protein before your workout?  An apple and 24g of protein to light?

  20. i always heard carbs post workout. So good fats and quality protein is best post workout? And then like oats or sweet potatoes later on ? I’ll try it

  21. Is it ok to work out in the morning on an empty stomach? I’m trying to loose belly fat(only)…
