When you're dieting for fat-loss there are different phases that you'll go through.
At first it feels great and you actually sleep much better!
See, your body begins to feel better in the beginning of a fat-loss diet.
You stop tossing and turning throughout the night and your body begins to function like it should.
Most fat people don't sleep good; they toss and turn throughout the night or some have sleep apnea which makes it so they cannot fall into a deep sleep.
But you see, during this initial diet period you're also not exactly HUNGRY yet.
You're consuming stored energy from fat cells within your own body and you feel energetic and incredible!
You still cannot see your abs but you know your clothes are fitting looser and you feel better.
So what happens now?
It's nice to hear those compliments from coworkers and people who are witnessing the transformation!
So you continue to eat less overall calories and pound away at the weights and the cardio!
You continue to lose more and more fat, now in a quest to see the sought after 6 pack of abs you've always dreamed of seeing!
NOW IS WHEN YOU START GETTING HUNGRY!
NOW IS WHEN YOU START FEELING PHYSICALLY DRAINED!
NOW IS WHEN YOUR SLEEP GOES TO SHIT!
Yea, see it ain't all peaches and cream.
Remember that television show “The Biggest Loser”?
It was a pretty picture wasn't it?
Those people got their lives back, they held up pants that were twice the size of their waists to show the amazing results!
But you know what?
THEY WERE STILL FUCKING AVERAGE TO ME!
They didn't end up with 6 pack abs and muscle striations!
They didn't know what it was like cooking their own meals and going through a 10 hour workday while they were away at FAT CAMP, crying their eyes out on a treadmill with a sissy trainer screaming at them (with a voice that sounded like a drill sergeant who just broke through puberty)!
Yea, they were fucking crying.
It was nothing but a bunch of over-dramatic bullshit, you know, so it was easier to relate to for all of the estrogen spilling bitches who tuned in to watch it regularly.
I caught bits and pieces of that show a couple times, while yelling at the television, “SHUT UP AND QUIT CRYING YOU FAT MOTHERFUCKER…. JUST WALK!”
THIS ARTICLE ISN'T FOR THE BIGGEST LOSERS, IT'S FOR WINNERS!
Yea, this article isn't for the “I just wanna be in shape” dickheads out there!
This is geared towards the ones that want to stand out.
“I just wanna be in shape”?
What the hell ever happened to aiming high?
What ever happened to “I WANT TO BE JACKED AS FUCK, STRONG AS FUCK, FUCK BITCHES, MAKE $$$, AND CONQUER SHIT!?”
WHAT THE HELL EVER HAPPENED TO THAT?
So anyways, yea if you're just trying to go through the motions of moving your fat ass from point A to point B without downing a bag of Cheetos on your way there, then this isn't for you.
You don't need to hear any of this you fat fuck, you need to go grab another box of tissues and keep crying!
This is for people who are trying to see their abs, dudes trying to see separation in their muscles and turn heads when they walk around places!
Ok, here's the deal; sleep just gets rough sometimes when you start getting leaner.
It's like you're tired as hell but you just cannot get a restful sleep!
It's weird because it feels like you could easily nod off at lunchtime, but then when it's time to go to bed at night you can't fall asleep!
Sometimes it's worse when using gear too!
I've NEVER, EVER had a time when I had really good and visible abs and I didn't need some sort of help falling asleep.
It's actually a natural response to getting lower body-fat.
This is our body's way of saying, “DON'T GO TO SLEEP YET STUPID, YOU NEED TO FIND FOOD!”
In case you hadn't realized yet, being heavier than average for your height, at a lower body-fat than average, isn't something that our bodies comfortably want to do!
So I have always used something to help promote sleep during these periods of dieting and hunger.
My sleep sucks bad enough as it is even if I'm not getting shredded, but if I'm trying to drop fat then forget it!
I need help falling asleep and this is the case!
I've tried several different approaches over the years but some sleep aids made me feel groggy when waking up the next morning.
Ambien is fucking fantastic if you have a prescription for it, but then it can become easy to get hooked on it.
Also, if you don't have enough time to sleep then taking it can make you feel out of your head the following morning.
There are numerous sleep supplements on the market and in your supplement stores, but none of them have the synergistic ingredients that work together in the way that Red Buddha does!
You see, too much of a good thing is a bad thing and that is the issue with a lot of sleep aids that are available.
Sometimes too much melatonin itself causes you to be groggy the next morning (for the ones who have used 5mg or more you probably know what I'm talking about here!)
Taking magnesium by itself CAN RELAX YOU, but the effects on it's own are too mild to be effective for me!
However, when you combine the powerful effects of GABA, 5-HTP, zinc, magnesium and melatonin, you get a combination of ingredients that help you fall asleep but don't cause the same after-effects of taking too much of just one product that comes with a more pronounced side effect the next morning!
This is where Red Buddha prevails.
MOST FAT-BURNING HAPPENS DURING SLEEP!
That's right, if you're not sleeping well then your fat-loss slows down.
Now, this is the biggest catch to dieting because losing fat is what causes your body to want to sleep worse once you get to a lower level of body-fat.
So it becomes imperative that sleep remain in the picture so you can continue to lose body-fat without catabolizing your muscles.
This is what happens with most people who get incredibly lean; they only look good to a certain point and then their body eats away at itself in survival mode!
Now, rather than continuing to look lean, full, and pumped up, we sort of just look like walking corpses.
Now, our muscles become flatter than fuck and we are actually doing the total opposite of what we wanted to do in the first place!
We are putting our body in this starvation/survival mode where our muscles no longer look hard and grainy, but soft and flat!
This is when fat-loss can become such a double edged sword.
It's like the very thing you're trying to accomplish is the very thing that is causing the issue with sleep!
This is because we aren't designed to be big and lean…BUT THE FIRST CARS WEREN'T DESIGNED TO GO 100MPH EITHER!
So fuck that, I'm out to get big and shredded and damnit if I have to pop something before bed in order to function normally while I'm doing it, then in the words of Dewey Cox, “GIVE ME THAT SHIT!”
So there you have it, if you need help getting sleep then try Red Buddha.
I'm not here to tell you that you need something, but sometimes ya' just need something, ya' get my drift?
TRAIN HARD, SLEEP HARD, WALK HARD…”GIVE ME THAT SHIT!” -JD
