Today’s nutrition plan we’re going to cover is Renaissance Periodization (RP)! RP is a company that offers templates and 1-on-1 nutrition plans. They are a calorie and macro-centered plan that give exact amounts of food to eat at certain times. I have not done it personally but have collected information from a number of people that saw success from following it. As always, not every plan is for everybody. My goal is to introduce these as different options.
Notes on each persons answers. Every single persons first response was “it works” followed by other pros like energy, lots of food, didn’t feel hungry. But like every diet some peoples cons were different. In fact, one person specifically said it wasn’t sustainable for them long term and another person listed sustainability as a pro. So here are their pros and cons list.
-Easy to follow
-I was never hungry
-More energy, slept better, felt healthier
-Like having meals prepped and ready
-Difficult to weigh and measure food
-Increased energy and performance
-Looked good naked
-Lowered blood pressure and cholesterol
-At first, hard to eat that much
-Lots of prep time and planning
-Hard to maintain for life
-Can’t look at it as a finish line or it wont last. It’s not “just make it three months”...
-Not hungry, ie in a caloric deficit without feeling like it
-Each cut gets progressively harder until you adapt
-If you don’t like vegetables, it’s not for you
