Your Emergency Banging-Beach-Body-Ready Plan Is Ready

You have a trip to the beautiful coastline of Negril, Jamaica coming up in six weeks.

This is a place that has a constant tropical climate all year round that stays between 80-90 degrees.

We're talking seven miles of golden sand beaches that are just calling for you to sunbath or take a dip in that warm, Caribbean Sea.

Adding to that are breezy nights where you and your boo can cuddle up on the beach while enjoying live reggae and a plethora of beachside lobster snacks. All your stresses rolling out with the tide.

Now that's paradise.

However, we have a problem.

You aren't in the best shape that you planned to be in before you leave.

Trying on your bathing suit in your 6ft mirror, you're reminded of all those happy hours and delicious meals that Nashville has to offer.

Sometimes your stomach was growling and you just had to have it. Other times you didn't want to be the party pooper of the group and avoid all social outings.

But either way, all those things have accumulated and now we have a problem to solve: “How can I drop 10-20 quick pounds and get sexy in time for my trip??”

Our biggest challenge here is time. I myself am a fan of the slower approach that involves adopting useful habits and losing fat over an extended period of time until you reach your goals.

But you don't have time for that. You've been slacking for the past few months and now time is of the essence.

Living in the real world, some of us want/need a quick jolt in our regime that's going to yield some nice results.

So what we need here is to do something that's a bit more extreme: crash dieting.

Yes, that thing that all the magazines discouraged.

For long term results, crash dieting cannot be maintained while keeping your sanity. But for short term results, it can be beneficial.

What we need is a big caloric deficit. Not from working out like maniac or eating only one-cracker-a-day.

In fact, if you follow the guidelines, you won't even have to actually count the calories.

You ready?

Step 1. You're going to eat 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of LBM each day. I'm going to leave it up to you to find out what is your LBM (Lean Body Mass). Google is your friend. All your protein should be from lean sources.

Step 2. All your carbs will come from high fiber, non-starchy produce. Again, put that into your search engine and out will pop a long list of options in that category. You can eat as much of these as you want.

Step 3. Have all of your fat intake come from Omega-3 sources like fish oil and krill oil. Try not to add a lot of oils to your meals.

Step 4. Drink a ton of water. Other beverages allowed are black coffee, teas, Crystal Light (sugar-free), and coconut water for electrolytes.

Step 5. Be sure to take daily multivitamins. This can come from capsules or whole food supplements.

And there you have it. You have the freedom of what exactly you will eat, as long as it stays inside the above guidelines.

Workouts? Not a lot because it'll be detrimental when doing something like this. Maybe 2x a week.

How long will you be on this? It all depends on how much fat you have to lose. Start with 3-4 weeks, and then take a week or two off to eat normally (not gorge on crap).

These are some rough guidelines but you can take them, apply them and see amazing returns.

It's not an exciting process, but some things aren't. At times you have to be willing to just do it.

Two days before you leave for your trip and you look back into that same mirror, you'll be aware of your accomplishments and proud of the that sacrifices you made.

Let's go champ,
