What is Spring Shreds?
What is Spring Shreds?
Spring shreds is our coaching philosophy for optimal fat loss and body recomposition. We structure food quality, reduce inflammation within the body, improve insulin sensitivity and also regulate digestion which might have been impacted through poor eating habits and food quality.
Insulin is a peptide hormone produced by beta cells of the pancreatic islets; it is considered to be the main anabolic hormone of the body. It regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein by promoting the absorption of glucose from the blood into liver, fat and skeletal muscle cells.
Over time, our stress levels and consumption of highly processed food can lead to fluctuating blood sugar levels and a constant signal for insulin. What this turns into is ‘insulin’ resistance.
If someone becomes more ‘insulin resistant’ they could show pre diabetic like symptoms and have a hard time metabolising carbohydrates and managing blood sugar levels… this is not optimal for maintaining a healthy body composition!
Along with creating an environment for unstable blood sugar levels, processed foods can contribute to higher levels of inflammation in our digestive system and around the body.
All processed foods can cause inflammation. They can alter the bacteria that live in our gut, and that alteration has the ability to interact with our immune system and eventually trigger it in a way that leads to chronic inflammation.
Processed foods also tend to be hyperpalatable meaning once we consume a small amount, the chances of us having an urge to consume more is pretty high.
In our spring shreds plan, we reduce inflammatory foods and look to help reduce any flare ups.
This promotes a healthier bodily function and contributes to improved energy, recovery and training performance.
Protein is also high on our list of priorities during spring shreds. It is an essential nutrient for the human body. Protein is also one of the building blocks of body tissue and can also serve as a fuel source.
Other potential beneficial outcomes associated with protein include the following:
1. Increased satiety—protein generally increases satiety to a greater extent than carbohydrate or fat and may increase the likelihood you won’t snack on other macronutrients.
2. Increased thermogenesis—higher-protein diets are associated with increased thermogenesis, which also influences satiety and augments energy expenditure (in the longer term, increased thermogenesis contributes to the relatively low-energy efficiency of protein).
3. Maintenance or accretion of fat-free mass—in some individuals, a moderately higher protein diet may provide a stimulatory effect on muscle protein anabolism, favoring the retention of lean muscle mass while improving metabolic profile.
Can I use supplements to aid my daily food intake?
Yes! We are offering a special discount code to all participants on the spring shreds plan that will allow you to supplement your food intake with the highest quality protein on the market.
Our vegan protein comprises a superior blend giving it a complete amino acid profile, contains extra antioxidants and is also free of gluten, dairy and soy. You will also find no added sugar in our products!
We also offer a whey protein product which is fast absorbing and made using the highest quality ingredients. This product is suitable for vegetarians and contains no gluten or soy. You can shop our range of supplements here.
A stressful lifestyle and a diet based around low quality, highly processed foods can lead to inflammation and insulin resistance.
During the spring shreds and spring lean plans, we aim to reduce stress, remove processed foods in the hope of reducing inflammation in the body.
Increasing our intake of quality protein sources with fats and vegetables supports a stable blood sugar level. This can help improve insulin sensitivity and improve metabolism of carbohydrates.
Protein intake will also play a role in maintaining satiety during periods of calorie deficits throughout the spring shreds plan and in some cases boost thermogenesis and contribute to a higher calorie burn.
