How to lose fat

How to lose fat and build up muscles

If you want to reduce your weight and body fat percentage, you must primarily achieve a negative energy balance. Basically there are two possibilities for this, ideally in combination:

1. increase calorie output = additional physical activity
2. minimise caloric intake

Increase calorie output: strength training or endurance training?
Physical activity should not only be a pure means to increase energy output, but ideally should also include specific strength training for the purpose of building muscle mass. Since muscles burn more calories than fat tissue even at rest, increased muscle mass results in a higher basal metabolic rate or daily calorie requirement. Furthermore, it is now well proven that so-called High Intensity Interval Trainings (HIIT) are more effective than moderate long-term endurance units in terms of absolute calorie burning and fat reduction. HIIT is characterized by short, intensive intervals of e.g. 10 x 60 sec at 90% of the maximum heart rate, with a 60 sec break each. It apparently does not matter whether you train on empty energy stores or in a satiated state, because the calorie burning after training remains increased for a longer period of time («afterburning effect»). A balanced diet that is both high in protein and low in carbohydrates should be practised at the same time. In contrast to long endurance units, HIIT can be trained much more time-efficient.

Reduce caloric intake: triple effect of increased protein intake
On the nutritional side, the simplest and most effective approach is to increase the protein content in the diet. Nowadays, there is a wealth of clinical data that prove the satiating, muscle-preserving and calorie-burning (thermogenic) effect of protein.

• Compared to fat or carbohydrates, protein requires more energy for digestion: about 20-30% of the calories from protein are required for its digestion and burned as heat (thermogenesis). With carbohydrates, this effect counts only approx. 5-10% of its caloric content.
• Protein is digested more slowly than carbohydrates, which prolongs the satiety feeling and keeps insulin levels lower. This in turn promotes fat metabolism.
• Protein supports the building and maintenance of muscle mass. Since proteins are also used by the body as a source of energy when total energy balance is negative, a percentage increase in protein intake during a diet is all the more important.
• An increase in protein intake is even more important for people on a vegetarian or vegan diet. Because of the lower value of vegetable protein compared to animal protein, a combination of several sources and a slightly higher intake is necessary.

Implementation of nutritional measures in everyday life
Our most important recommendation: no radical goals and measures! Gentle and flexibly manageable changes are most sustainable. Further adjustments can be made successively as required. Start with the following or similar measures:

• Reduce carbohydrates: minimise your carbohydrate side dish several times a week, and eat more salad and/or vegetables instead. Be prudent with carbohydrates in general and fast sugars in particular, as they are not very satiating and also affect insulin levels, which has a negative effect on fat burning.
• High-quality protein source: Always include quality protein in all main meals. This can be dairy products, meat, fish, but also combined vegetable sources.
• Dietary fibres: A high fibre content (lettuce, mushrooms, pulses, wholemeal cereals and many vegetables) supports satiety and also digestion.
• Replace 2 to 4 meals per week with a protein shake, supplemented with a portion of salad or vegetables. Ideal in the evening.
• Plan your diet with convenient, but appropriate snacks. Avoid sugary snacks between meals and try to replace them with a protein shake or protein bar instead. If you do have a hunger attack, have something suitable ready (e.g. nuts, PROTEIN LOW CARB BAR).
• Vegetables instead of fruits. Fruits are also healthy, of course, but contain a lot of sugar. Prefer raw vegetables instead (tomatoes, peppers, etc.)
• Minimise carbohydrates in the evening. Try to avoid carbohydrates late in the evening. A late meal should instead be rich in protein, but may well also contain fat (e.g. protein shake, cheese, nuts).

These gentle, adaptable measures provide the flexibility to react to cravings, invitations, lapses, etc. Such small steps are also easier to follow than crash diets because only minor behavioural changes are required, and no feelings of hunger are needed. Like this you can slowly but steadily change your diet and find your individually fitting solution.

Conclusion: Combined nutrition and training strategy
Weight loss should be achieved through a combination of dietary changes and increased activity, which will lead to a corresponding change in behaviour for long-term success. The new behaviour patterns must fit you and your everyday life, ultimately becoming part of your lifestyle! Only a permanent (lifelong) change protects you from the yo-yo effect.

Minimise your caloric intake

How to increase the protein content in your nutrition with SPONSER

There are two ways to reduce your weight and body fat percentage, ideally in combination. You increase your calorie output with additional physical activity. And you minimise caloric intake. The simplest and most effective approach is to increase the protein content in your nutrition. Nowadays, there is a wealth of clinical data that prove the satiating, muscle-preserving and calorie-burning (thermogenic) effect of protein.

Slow digestion, increased satiety
Casein, the largest protein fraction in milk protein, is considered to be particularly satiating because, due to its gelling effect in the digestive tract, it is digested more slowly. Casein-containing protein shakes such as MULTI PROTEIN, CASEIN or LOW CARB PROTEIN SHAKE are therefore particularly suitable as a side dish or the main course of a meal as well. It is also recommended to take such a slow-protein shake as a late meal before going to bed, because they provide a long-lasting influx of amino acids into the blood, and thus reduce the nightly catabolic muscle breakdown phase without hindering lipolysis (fat breakdown).

LOW CARB PROTEIN SHAKE
To support a diet as part of weight management. To be taken with vegetables and/or salad after training or with a main meal.
• Satiating meal: high casein and fibre content
• High-quality protein to compensate for muscle loss with reduced calorie intake
• Prebiotic dietary fibres to support the intestinal flora
• L-carnitine for optimal burning of fatty acids
• Choline to support normal fat metabolism

VEGAN PROTEIN
Alternative for vegans.
• High-quality protein shake based on quinoa, sunflower seeds, peas and rice
•100% vegan

PROTEIN LOW CARB BAR
As a satiating snack in between.
• High protein bar
• Only 2 g net carbs
• High in fibres

Protein tips

Protein: For regeneration, muscle building, weight control and immune defence

Protein fulfils many important functions in your body. For endurance athletes, regeneration, build-up and maintenance of muscle mass, weight control and immune defence are the main concerns.

Regeneration
You need the relevant building materials for regeneration and repair of your stressed muscles. For optimal recovery, you should take 20-30 g of quickly available, high-quality protein as soon as possible after exercise. Whey protein is ideal, e.g. WHEY PROTEIN or a recovery shake such as PRO RECOVERY.
Since your metabolism is running at full speed even hours after intensive training and competitions, you should make sure to repeat your protein intake every 3-4 hours. Suitable sources are basic proteins made from multi-component blends such as MULTI PROTEIN or WHEY CONCENTRATE as well as solid foods and protein bars, such as PROTEIN LOW CARB BAR or PROTEIN 36 BAR.
Sleep is the most important phase of regeneration. In order to shorten the catabolic phase, it is advisable to keep the amino acid influx running as long as possible during the several hours of rest at night. Multi-component proteins such as MULTI PROTEIN and CASEIN, known as «night protein», constitute ideal protein sources, grace to their slow and steady digestion.

Strength and muscle building
For your strength and muscle build-up, the same principles apply as for regeneration, but ideally with slightly higher total protein amounts. Notably, it is also important to maintain a positive net calorie balance. This means that more energy must be ingested throughout the day than burned.

Weight control
In order to achieve weight loss you need a negative energy balance. This means you have to spend more energy than you consume. A regular and increased protein supply also plays a decisive role during such a weight loss regime. On one hand, proteins have a greater effect on satiety than carbohydrates. Furthermore, protein also needs more energy for its digestion by the body, which means less calories consumed net. Proteins are also important during a diet because they reduce the degradation (catabolism) and help to preserve muscle mass and vital structures.

Immune defence
Protein is the main building material and energy supplier of the immune system. Therefore, your protein requirement rises sharply in the event of an infection! In order to stop the spread of viral or bacterial pathogens, a great number of defence cells and immune factors must be produced quickly.

Interview Jan van Berkel

Ironman athlete Jan van Berkel about his nutrition

Swiss pro triathlete Jan van Berkel is going to race Ironman Switzerland 2019, the very race he was able to win the year before. We were lucky to meet him and ask a few questions before the big day.

Jan, the first highlight of your season is about to start. How do you feel before the Ironman Switzerland?

I have been fully concentrated on this race for months now and I am very much looking forward to race. I am in a good shape. If someone wants to grab my title, he has to perform well - and deserves it.

What is special in your nutrition before a competition?

A NO-Loading with NITROFLOW PERFORMANCE2 and RED BEET VINITROX is very important for me. Also, I try to reduce the dietary fibres a bit. I increase the carbohydrates three days before the race, but not excessively.

What are the most important food aspects in a long-distance competition?

Individuality: What works for me can be completely wrong for another athlete. And flexibility: In an Ironman there are always unknown situation that throw a nutrition concept overboard. If you stay within a rigid nutrition concept, failure will be guaranteed.

Your biggest nutrition misadventure ever?

At the Inferno Triathlon I used a bottle on the bike that was a bit mouldy. Since the bike has to be parked in the transition zone the day before the race, you can't get to this transition zone on the morning of the race. So, my bottle with the COMPETITION sports drink has already turned acid. When I opened it during the race, the liquid came out like shaken champagne! I therefore stopped at a fountain in order to stay hydrated on my way up to Kleine Scheidegg.

What are your favourite SPONSER products in your everyday life?

1. WHEY PROTEIN 94: High-quality proteins are the cornerstone of my regeneration.
2. PROTEIN LOW CARB BAR Chocolate Brownie: I dip it into homemade peanut butter and get probably the healthiest «Snickers» in the world.
3. ACTIVATOR: Because sometimes there is no good coffee around and sometimes you just need a caffeine boost!

Nutrition in training camps

Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator:

Nutrition in a triathlon training camp: the best tips by Ruedi Wild

Pro triathlete Ruedi Wild has been a top athlete for over twenty years. On his way to countless national and international podiums as well as World and European Champion titles, the Swiss professional athlete has gained a lot of experience when it comes to perfect nutrition. Some of his insights gained and very personal tips for nutrition in the training camp:

Losing weight
One thing right at the front: training camps make it harder! So far I have never come back from the training camp easier, absolutely never. This, although it was not uncommon to have more than 40 hours per week. In my opinion and experience, the weight is generally much more dependent on the diet and its quality than on the amount of training. The training camp is for me not the time to lose weight, but to train optimally!

General nutrition in a training camp
In the training camp I pay attention to good, high-quality food despite high energy consumption. I prefer to eat unprocessed food such as vegetables, meat, salads and high-quality fats (e.g. olive oil, nuts). In addition, there is a higher proportion of carbohydrates in the form of rice or potatoes. Whenever possible, I do without the added sugar in the basic diet. I avoid all sweetened yoghurts, soft drinks, supposedly "healthy" fruit juices and desserts with a high sugar content. The same goes for canned fruits. They all have no effect on my satiation, but on the contrary: further hot hunger far beyond the required amount of energy and associated with it a worse recovery due to increased inflammatory markers in the blood, fatigue and a strongly fluctuating blood sugar level, which is either too high (fatigue) or low (hunger). For many years I had difficulties sleeping through due to my high sugar consumption. A sudden hunger pause at night was the rule rather than the exception. So I practically always had an "emergency snack" on my bedside table.
Not only in the training camp, but also in everyday life I pay attention to a sufficient Omega-3 fatty acid consumption. The many positive health effects have been scientifically confirmed for several years. I notice well that the hardenings in my musculature decrease immediately and lastingly. I personally am very happy with the new OMEGA-3 Plus from SPONSER®! A supplement with a neutral taste of its own, if you may say so for Omega 3. Finally I don't need to swallow tons of capsules anymore.

Travelling
Travel means stress and also strains my immune system. Several times I became ill either on the outward or return journey and whereby the training camp effect evaporated immediately. The last days before departure are usually very stressful and everyday life is dominated by packing and all the pending things that have to be done at the last minute. On the return journey the body is stricken by the higher training volume. I made good experiences before and during the trip with higher protein consumption and IMMUNOGUARD from SPONSER® to strengthen my natural defences. Tip: When travelling, be sure to take disinfectants with you and use them regularly!
The quality of the food on the plane is usually not too high and the whole trip almost always takes longer than intended. Therefore, make sure you take precautions yourself! My most popular snacks and faithful companions on trips are the LOW CARB PROTEIN BARS. Tasty and with a lot of protein, but practically sugar-free and well satiating.

Regeneration
The more I train, the more specifically and better I have to recover in order to achieve the desired effect. In addition to a high-quality basic diet, I pay attention to a regular and sufficient protein intake. Especially during the days when I skip lunch because of the long bike ride, I make sure that I have a good and sufficient source of protein. Carbohydrates can be found practically everywhere, even with coffee and cake.
I therefore try to take at least one serving of 20-25g protein every four hours. In everyday nutrition I can usually cover this with the basic food. In the training camp, however, I do not manage this so easily, because I usually have lunch on the bike due to the higher training volumes. I prefer to take a high-quality protein bar (PROTEIN 36 BAR), in addition mostly amino acids (AMINO 12500, BCAA or ESSENTIAL AMINO COMPLEX), about every two hours on the bike. Back in the room I immediately consume a portion of protein in the form of a regeneration product. Mostly the PRO RECOVERY (if following a training) or the MULTI PROTEIN (without following a training) is used. Before going to bed it is also an ideal time to take the protein again, as the recovery phase runs at full speed overnight. The CASEIN (night protein) is used at home and without limitation by the luggage. MULTI PROTEIN (with a high casein content) is also an ideal solution for training camps. Mixed with milk, it is also a tasty dessert.
With the correct and regular consumption of protein, I feel a striking difference in my state of recovery during the training camp. In addition, I am less dependent on the protein sources at the buffet, which often do not meet my expectations from a qualitative point of view.

Situational energy supply
The training camp is not the right time to acquire the competition weight! Rather, it is in my foreground to get through the desired training workload well and successfully. This is only possible if I take good care of myself and recover.
Especially during long and hard training sessions I pay special attention to the food. I make hard units with sufficiently filled carbohydrate stores. In units of 3 hours and longer I always consume at least one protein source to protect my muscles from the energy deficit and the "self-cannibalization" (muscle breakdown). I adapt the energy in the form of carbohydrates to the intensity and the training intention. The higher the intensity, the more carbohydrates per hour. I also consciously make the loose units with reduced carbohydrate intake in order to optimize my fat metabolism. Nevertheless, I take in enough carbohydrates that I can complete the unit without compromises.

Buffet and snacks
In my younger years, I often avoided snacks between meals and went to the evening "battle" at the buffet with hot hunger. This is of course unfavourable for various reasons. On the one hand, the body was in a catabolic, degrading state with deteriorated regeneration for a longer time, on the other hand, I still ate much more energetically than intended at the end of the day. I went to bed exhausted and with a full stomach, only to wake up a few hours later with starvation.

Nutrition during long bike rides
During the long bike rides in the basic area I prefer to eat solid food. Especially the OAT PACK BAR and the HIGH ENERGY BAR SALTY NUTS are my favourites as tasty sources of carbohydrates. Because of all the sweating, water is not optimal over the long term, as important electrolytes such as sodium are washed out. That's why I always have a few ELECTROLYTE TABS in my bike bag with me, so that every water bottle can be easily and practically converted into a (energy- and sugar-free) sports drink when you refill it.
I mainly use carbohydrate- or energy-rich electrolyte drinks for more intensive units, as chewing is difficult here, or for particularly long trips. LONG ENERGY 10% is at the top of my list because it contains 10% protein in addition to the acid-free (and therefore tooth-friendly) carbohydrate solution.

Tiredness and mental support
With increasing training camp duration, fatigue inevitably increases more and more. My motivation correlates with this. So I always have a few ACTIVATOR caffeine ampoules in stock. These work wonders during long training days or during hard interval trainings. Low motivation can turn into training euphoria within minutes! I try to use ACTIVATOR in doses, because in the medium term it is important to follow the signals of the body.

My packing list for the training camp
• LOW CARB PROTEIN BARS: Travel and as a snack between meals
• PRO RECOVERY: Regeneration
• MULTI PROTEIN: Swiss protein powder. Increased protein requirement, regeneration, night protein
