Get the most out of your training
Would you mind letting us know if there’s something we should add to this, thanks!
Most of our customers lose some weight on BE PUMPED. The results really depend on what level of training they are doing and what sort of dieting they were doing prior to BE PUMPED.
This low calorie eating plan is ideal for controlling weight for the very active. Muscle building requires usually 2.2g of protein per kg of body weight (/kgBW), and 2.6-3.3g protein /kgBW when “cutting”. With suitable exercise BE PUMPED will help lean muscle growth. You may need to add a BE FIT Protein Blast (30g protein, only 2 carbs and 100 calories) to add more protein. Ideally within 30 minutes of training.
wanting faster (Rapid) weight loss?
Try BE RAPID (920 Calories, 80g carbs, 80g protein)
wanting slower weight loss or just not so active?
Try BE ACTIVE (1170 Calories, 100g carbs, 100g protein)
BE PUMPED is not a ketogenic diet
(This is explained in BE RAPID) BE PUMPED is really just healthy eating, plain and simple. Using real food, no preservatives or additives and designed by a doctor and dietitians to meet your nutritional needs. And put together by our chefs so that they are yummy. REAL. EASY. HEALTHY.
Do not vary the diet
If you want to meet your nutritional needs, avoid sugar swings etc.
Don’t have any liquid calories. these add up really quickly and will most likely ruin the calorie balance for the day.
Do not skip meals or snacks (even though you might not be hungry). Skipping meals will mean you will get very hungry later in the day or straight after your next meal. And you are then more likely to snack and drift away from your good intentions.
No alcohol, no chocolate and no milky coffees. These have too many calories and carbs and will probably make you hungry afterwards and more hungry for around 24 hours. Ok, you can have a splash of milk in your coffee, but just once per day.
Do, however, alter the diet for exercising. But only if you are exercising enough to use up over 100 calories. Ask your trainer if you are not sure. Sometimes you might exercise so much you should have a protein snack straight afterwards, and perhaps an extra protein snack for the day. But generally speaking, the weight loss will better if you don’t do this. And overall depends on your goals. Again ask your trainer or a sports physician for father, personalised advice.

BE Fit Food is unique in the market for providing all your dietary requirements, but if you go for more than 2 weeks then you should add a multivitamin just to be safe. We suggest taking multivitamins that are specially formulated to be used during weight loss, such as the ones available from BE Fit Food.
Diabetics on certain medication should consider medical supervision consultation prior to commencing a new diet. Please consult with your clinician for personalised advice. BE Fit Food also has a team of dietitians to help you if you need.

Try BE ACTIVE (1170 Calories, 100g carbs, 100g or more of protein per day) or BE RAPID (920 Calories, 80g carbs, 80g or more of protein per day)
And finally, we also suggest consulting a clinical dietitian or medical practitioner prior to commencing weight loss if you have any concerns.
Here is a list of snack suggestions and side meal ingredients. We have chosen foods for this list that are low in calories and are popular and readily available. If your favourite food is not on the list (e.g. bananas, avocados) we have probably left it off because it is too high in calories, and we suggest you don’t eat them, otherwise your weight loss will be slower etc. This is a JPEG, so if you would like a copy just drag it to your desktop.
