The Best Way To Lose Body Fat Fast

The best way to lose body fat – end sugar addiction and stay on a low sugar/low carb eating plan.

But if you want to lose body fat even faster, you will strength train. 

This article is about why strength training is a major fat loss acccelerator and alternatives to traditional weight lifting.

Why Strength Training Accelerates Weight Loss
It is based on solid scientific fact. The fact is - beginning at about age 40, everyone loses about 10% of their muscle mass every decade. 

That's why physical activity gets harder. Factor in the additional body weight most people carry around and bingo - you have created a recipe for inactivity. Which breeds more inactivity.

Basically, your body engine loses power, burns less efficiently, and may require a major tuneup to reverse the process described above.
If you build and strengthen muscle (and eat protein to encourage the muscle building), a wonderful thing happens - your body engine gains power and burns more fat with each additional pound of muscle. 

By the way, if you are a woman, you will not look like a bodybuilder – you are unlikely to gain bulk because of your hormonal composition. 

Once this construction project gets underway, you will automatically lose weight fast.

What If I Don’t Want To Lift Weights?
Many men and women, for whatever reason, refuse to lift weights to gain strength.

That’s NOT a problem. 

Two alternatives are as follows:
  • Exercise DVD systems. The one I recommend is Jillian Michaels' Body Revolution. Body Revolution covers both interval AND strength training.
  • Body weight exercising. You use your body to create the resistance to develop strength. Buy Age Defying Fitness to perform body weight exercises as well as improving posture, balance, endurance, and flexibility.

2 Critical Dietary Recommendations To Get Lean And Mean

Dr. Mercola of mercola.com, recommends the following two activities to reduce body fat: 

There are two primary dietary recommendations that, if widely implemented, could help you regain your lean body and reverse our current obesity trend. 

This kind of diet will naturally shift your body from burning sugar to burning fat as its primary fuel, which will automatically help you shed excess weight, and counteract disease processes associated with a processed, high-sugar diet:


  1. Avoid sugar, refined fructose, grains, and processed foods.
  2. Eat a healthful diet of whole foods, ideally organic, and replace the grain carbs with:
    • Large amounts of vegetables
    • Low-to-moderate amount of high-quality protein (think organically raised, pastured animals). As a general guideline, limit your protein to about one gram of protein per kilogram of lean body mass, or one-half gram of protein per pound of lean body weight. (If your body fat mass is 20 percent, your lean mass is 80 percent of your total body weight)
    • As much high-quality healthful fat as you want (saturated and monounsaturated). For optimal health, most people need upwards of 50-85 percent of their daily calories in the form of fat
    • While this may sound excessive, consider that, in terms of volume, the largest portion of your plate would be vegetables, since they contain so few calories. Fat, on the other hand, tends to be very high in calories. For example, just one tablespoon of coconut oil is about 130 calories—all of it from healthful fat. Good sources of fat include coconut and coconut oil, avocados, butter, nuts, and animal fats. Also take a high-quality source of animal-based omega 3 fat, such as krill oil.

3-Step Plan To Lose Weight Fast

When you search the Internet daily to find tips to help your peeps lose weight safely, you stumble on (not the app) the best articles.
This 3-step plan to lose weight fat parallels the “forever” low sugar/low carb plan I use all the time. The difference is that the 3-step plan, the goal is for short-term weight loss. In the forever plan, the carb limitations are higher (which is why you can use it all the time).
I will give you the condensed version of the article and then provide you with the link in case you want to read the article in its entirety.
Also, I know that one of the main hurdles to weight loss is having the meal plans that support your eating plan. Here’s 3 resources that will provide these meal plans at minimal cost:
The 3-Step Plan*
Objectives:
  • Kill Your Appetite
  • Lose Weight Fast Without Being Hungry
  • Improve Your Health
Step 1: Eliminate Sugars and Starches (carbs) from your diet
Bottom Line: Removing sugars and starches (carbs) from your diet will lower your insulin levels, kill your appetite and make you lose weight without hunger.
Step 2 – Eat Protein, Fat and Vegetables
Each one of your meals should include a protein source, a fat source and low-carb vegetables. Constructing your meals in this way will automatically bring your carb intake into the range of 20-50 grams per day.
Protein Sources:
  • Meat – Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bacon, etc.
  • Fish and Seafood – Salmon, trout, shrimps, lobsters, etc.
  • Eggs – Omega-3 enriched or pasteurized eggs are best.
 Low-Carb Vegetables:
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Swiss Chard
  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Celery
Fat Sources:
  • Coconut Oil
  • Butter
  • Olive Oil
  • Lard
  • Tallow
Bottom Line: Assemble each meal out of a protein source, a fat source and a low-carb vegetable. This will put you into the 20-50 gram carb range and drastically lower your insulin levels.

Step 3 (Optional) – Exercise 3-4 Times Per Week
Bottom Line: It is best to do some sort of resistance training like weight lifting. If that is not an option, cardio workouts work too.
You Don’t Need to Starve Yourself to Lose Weight
If you have a medical condition then talk to your doctor before making changes because this plan can reduce your need for medication.
By reducing carbs and lowering insulin levels, you change the hormonal environment and make your body and brain “want” to lose weight.
This leads to drastically reduced appetite and hunger, eliminating the main reason that most people fail with conventional weight loss methods.
This is proven to make you lose about 2-3 times as much weight as a typical low-fat, calorie restricted diet.
Another great benefit for the impatient folks is that the initial drop in water weight can lead to a big difference on the scale as early as the next morning.
On this plan, you can eat good food until fullness and still lose a ton of fat.
Welcome to paradise.

Alarming Health Statistic - 30 To 40% of US Healthcare Expenditures Directly Related To Illnesses Caused By Excess Dietary Sugar

Mercola.com published an alarming article: 

Sugar Consumption Accounts for a Big Chunk of Healthcare Costs


The summary is as follows:
New study finds 30 to 40 percent of US healthcare expenditures are directly related to illnesses caused by excess dietary sugar.

Research reveals that those getting 25 percent of their calories from sugar are twice as likely to die from heart disease as those getting seven percent. 

Despite evidence that sugar is directly related to obesity and illness, the government continues to subsidize the corn syrup industry with taxpayer money.

Isn't it about time YOU cut your sugar consumption?
