Fast Weight Loss

Frustrated with poor weight loss results? Read on…

Working with more than 40 000 people over 27 years, I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly in trying to lose weight. The absolute fastest way to get the weight off is to combine two powerful techniques: intermittent fasting and ketogenic eating.

Powerful Technique #1: Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is just going for several hours without eating. It’s a hormonally friendly action that triggers the main fat-burning hormone and forces your body to use up your stored fat.

When people hear the word 'fasting', they think that they have to go on a hunger strike rather than on a diet. But intermittent fasting simply uses strategic timing to cut caloric intake and burn fat faster by passing on meals we didn't need to eat in the first place.

For example, we have been led to believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day as a result of an old marketing campaign by breakfast cereal companies. But when you eat in the morning, even if you’re not hungry, you basically stop the fat-burning process. Your body is not starving. It’s just eating up your stored fat — and that’s what we want, right?

The hormone that forces your body to burn fat is called the Growth Hormone. Most people associate the Human Growth Hormone (HGH) with professional sports where it acts as a performance-enhancing substance and builds muscle mass. However, it also helps with healthy aging. HGH is the main fat-burning hormone of the body, and it gets triggered with intermittent fasting.

Put intermittent fasting into action by adjusting your eating cycles. This amazing pattern of eating will force your body to burn fat and to avoid weight-loss plateau since you’re constantly changing your pattern of eating.

My system, as prescribed, follows three simple steps:

1. Three days of eating only three meals (This means no snacks.)

2. Three days of eating only two meals

3. Three days of eating only one and a half meals (the half meal being something like a kale shake)

If you exercise hardcore, you may need to stick with the first two steps.

Rinse and repeat until you hit your goal.

All these meals should fall within a ketogenic diet. Not sure what that is? Read below.

Powerful Technique #2: Ketogenic Eating

Ketogenic eating refers to a moderate-protein, high-fat, and no-sugar diet. This means cutting out refined carbohydrates and sugars completely — no bread, no pasta, no rice, and no potatoes. You can, however, keep eating vegetable carbohydrates.

By cutting sugary foods and adding fatty foods like eggs, nuts, avocados, and even cheese, you’ll feel fuller and have fewer cravings. You’ll also be able to go longer without eating. 

When there are no sugars left to be used as fuel, your body is forced to burn its own fat reserves for energy.

The Power behind Combining Intermittent Fasting with Ketogenic Dieting

Most people have been stuck on the exact opposite strategy: frequent small meals (the opposite of intermittent fasting) and a low-fat/lean protein diet (the opposite of a ketogenic diet). 

But snacking and cutting out fat keeps your insulin high. And in the presence of insulin, you can’t achieve weight loss! Adding intermittent fasting to a ketogenic diet can strategically get you to your goal fast.

This is not a low-calorie starvation plan, and I don’t recommend low-fat foods. You are simply switching your body into fat-burning mode and letting your body run on fat fuel, which is a healthy thing. 

It’s not about lowering your calories. Instead, it’s about combining two powerful techniques into one highly effective weight loss strategy. Try it and share your results
