FREE Over 40 Hormone Boosting Meal Plan

Hey, everybody.
Shaun Hadsall here
with Get Lean After 40.
And in today’s video,
I’m going to teach people
in their 40s, 50s, and
60s why and how you
must eat differently
than younger people
and avoid today’s fad diets if
you want to quickly metabolize
fat cells, fight
the aging process,
and keep your metabolism
boosted long-term.
So I’m going to teach you how
to create your very own over 40
hormone boosting meal plan.
Now, this is all part of a
brand new innovative system
that I created that
you can learn about
by clicking or tapping a
link around this video.
I call it the Over 40
Hormone Reset Diet.
It’s a one-day diet
protocol that when followed,
just four or five
days per week–
resets the weight
management hormones
of people over 40 years old
to help boost their metabolism
and help them quickly
metabolize more fat cells.
So let’s talk about how
to use this one-day diet
protocol in conjunction
with your very
own hormone-boosting meal plan.
So up here– and what
where you’ll see I
have carbs listed here.
And I’m going to
indicate whether you’re
keeping carbs high on this
day or low on this day.
So you’ll notice on Mondays,
Wednesdays, and Fridays,
I show weights.
So you want to weight train.
Remember, if you’re over 40,
muscle equals metabolism.
So you want to make sure
that you’re incorporating
weight training into your
routine at least three times
a week.
Whether it’s body
weight resistance
or it’s two-weight training or
some type of body weight boot
camp type of class, remember,
the more muscle you have,
the less likely you
are to gain weight.
So it’s that simple.
So first of all, a Monday,
Wednesday and Friday’s weights.
Tuesdays and Thursdays,
you’ll notice I
have carbs down on those days.
And those are cardio days.
Now, you can either do
high-intensity interval
training, like my metabolic
bursting techniques that I use.
Or you can use some
steady-state cardio.
And you can even walk briskly.
But I only recommend that
you do this a couple times
of the week.
If you want to be active on
the weekends, that’s fine too.
But don’t overdo the cardio,
cause it can actually
increase cortisol too much.
And it can suppress
your thyroid gland.
So be careful with
that, be cautious.
That’s why I only
recommend two days a week.
Now, you’ll notice that
carbs are up on weight days.
Cardio days, carbs are down.
So the basic rule of thumb here
is on weight training days,
women should consume
around 50 grams
of carbs total for the day.
And that should be consumed
before and after workouts.
So the choice is yours.
I like to work out
in a fasted state
because it kicks up my
fat burning hormones.
But some people
can’t tolerate that.
So consuming carbs before
and after a workout,
they’re either going to be, A,
uses energy during the workout.
Or, B, after the
workout, they’re
going to replenish something
called glycogen, which
is stored energy in your
muscle and liver tissue that’s
been depleted after exercise.
So the best time to
consume your carbohydrates.
Men are going to consume
100 grams per day.
Now, on cardio days,
I recommend that you
go more of a keto style of diet
where you’re doing a higher
fat, low carb diet.
So you’re just going to
avoid starches and fruits
and these days.
And you’re going to make sure
that you include a protein
source in every single meal.
Remember, protein– it has
the highest thermic effect
of any other food.
So your body will burn up to 30%
more calories digesting protein
than it does other foods.
Not to mention, protein not
only can boost your metabolism–
research shows people
consume a high protein
diet had less cravings
during the day and less late
night hunger.
And I shoot for 1 gram per pound
of lean body weight per day.
So I’m consuming between 117 to
190 grams of protein per day.
But I’m also very active.
Now, if you are not
active, you want
to go ahead and just follow
these high-fat, low-carb days
all five days of the week.
And then both camps, whether
you’re an exerciser or not,
want to make sure
that you’re using
glucose-based high-carb
cheat meals at the right time
every weekend.
I teach you all about
the scientific research
behind this hormone resetting
strategy over at my website.
But when you do
this the right way,
and you have
high-carb cheat meals
at the right time
on the weekends,
you reoptimize your T4 to
T3 conversion and boost
your thyroid hormones.
You also reset your
body’s leptin levels.
Now, you want to make sure that
when you’re having higher carb
meals before and
after weight training,
then you just keep
fat intake low
in these carb-containing meals.
So it’s a pretty
simple plan to follow.
If you don’t exercise, you’re
going to go high fat, low carb
and have about 25 grams
or less of carbs per day
and then have your
high-carb refeed cheat meals
on the weekends.
OK.
If you’re an
exerciser, you’re going
to go ahead– you’d only go
high fat, low carb on Tuesdays
and Thursdays.
And then you’re going to
increase your carb intake
before and after workouts
on Mondays, Wednesdays,
and Fridays.
It is all really
that simple– just
make sure you include a
protein source in every meal,
keep your fat intake
lower when you have carbs,
like starches and fruits.
And you’re off to the races.
You just have to use
it in conjunction
with my one-day hormone
resetting diet protocol

This is the same
system that my wife
used to completely transform
her body and look her best ever.
Her smile says it all.
It’s the same system I’ve used
for the last 10-plus years
to maintain elite condition
and get photo shoot ready.
So thanks for watching
this video and God bless.
