In order to lose fat at the most rapid rate, you need to create a rather large caloric deficit in a relatively short period of time.
A pound of fat is 3,500 calories. Want to lose a pound of fat? Then you’ll need to be 3,500 calories in the hole. Five pounds of fat? Make that 17,500 calories.
It’s the EASIEST math in the world.
Unfortunately, drastic reductions in calorie intake only cause the body fight back against your dieting efforts, shutting down metabolism and holding on to body fat as a starvation protection mechanism.
Enter the rapid fat loss Catch-22: You can’t lose fat fast without quickly creating a massive calorie deficit, and you simply can’t create a massive calorie deficit quickly without your body shifting in to starvation mode and rate-limiting your fat loss.
The simple fact is this: Until now, extremely fast fat loss was impossible (keep in mind, we’re only talking about 25 short days of RAPID and sustained fat loss here).
And that’s not us being “hypey,” that’s the FACTS.
Sure, you may have known someone who lost a lot of “weight” in a short period of time, but weight loss and fat loss are two critically different things. Want to lose a lot of weight in a short period of time?
You certainly can, and here are the inevitable results:
And oh yeah, a metabolism so beaten and battered that the moment you decide to return to any sort of normal eating regimen, bam, all your fast “weight loss” (and then some) piles back on even faster.
Long term drastic calorie restriction simply does not WORK for fast fat loss. It requires a HUGE amount of sacrifice, and frankly, the results don’t even come close to warranting the effort.
Ever seen an anorexic? Probably not the look you’re going for…
So if a massive calorie deficit must be present to achieve rapid fat loss, and long-term minimal calorie intake can NOT work for fat loss, how CAN you create the necessary deficit without having your body turn it’s back on you?
