- What’s the rate limiting step (i.e. what is the one thing that is slowing the whole weight loss system down)?
- How can we get around it and speed up the entire weight loss process?
It always bothered me that we’re told – a good weight loss diet could results in 2lbs of fat loss per week. “Any more than that and you’ll lose muscle”. Or a good exercise program could result in the same. But if you had a good weight loss diet AND a good exercise program – your results didn’t double – they canceled each other out! You would still lose “2lbs per week…”. Diet worked. Exercise worked.
But diet and exercise didn’t seem to work much better. We’ve all been told that 2lbs a week is the magic number… yet there are actual scientific studies showing weight loss way higher than that. What about losing muscle and slowing metabolism? Again it’s another myth. There are studies showing metabolism increases and muscle gains on programs with intakes as low as 800 calories per day.
Is it just about calories? Nope.
There are studies showing that interval training, while burning less calories during the session, results in a significantly greater fat loss than a higher volume of calorie burning exercise…There are also studies showing the same total calories burned from weight training and cardio results in drastically different amounts of fat loss.
So it’s not just calories…
There are nutrition studies that show changing the source of protein intake doubled the lean mass gains and increased fat lost – without changing total calories or activity levels. Another one showed the same thing when you changed the source of dietary fat. Again — no change in total calories in, or activity levels (calories out) — but there was a pronounced reduction in body fat. After bringing together tons of fat loss information – both from studies that I’ve read, and people that I’ve worked with —I came to a conclusion:
The limit for fat loss – if it even exists – is definitely way higher than we first thought. You can lose more than 2lbs per week and if we did everything right — looking for synergy between the different components as opposed to incompatibility and canceling each other out. – we could ramp all the processes up, and “front-load” the program so that instead of training and dieting for 12 weeks —you’d get great results in 28 days.
Let’s face it —training for fat loss sucks. Dieting sucks. And we all usually leave it until the last minute. If you’re ready to make fat loss your number one priority for the next 28 days – check it out—Warp Speed Fat Loss.
