How To Lose Weight in 3 Easy Steps!
Just like any other process burning fat and losing weight requires you to take certain steps to produce the desired result. And based on the thousands of clients that I’ve worked with in my gyms and online this process can be broken down into 3 major keys that determine whether you will be successful with losing weight and body fat or not. So in today’s video, I want to give you these 3 keys so you can unlock your bodies full-fat burning abilities. If you make sure that you do all three of these things you will burn fat faster than ever before and keep it off permanently.
Let’s start with the first key. The model for burning fat has always looked like this. If you take too many calories in from food and you don’t burn enough calories from exercise you gain fat and vice versa if you have fewer calories than you burn you’ll lose fat. Everyone knows that we’ve been told that over and over again since we were little kids. That means that the traditional model suggests that the reason you have excess fat or your carry extra weight is that you have too many calories. And the unspoken reason behind this model for why you have too many calories is because of a lack of willpower. You have excess body fat because it’s your fault for not having enough self-control and willpower to just consume fewer calories.
However, this doesn’t match up with your experience. Based on your own personal experience you know that when you have fewer calories you lose a couple pounds and then you usually get stuck. You continue eating fewer calories and feeling like your starving yourself eating bland boring foods you hate, but you never hit your target weight. This goes on for a while…you get discouraged…and then you quit because no one can stay on a restrictive low-calorie diet for the long haul especially when it’s not producing results. Well, guess what I’m here to tell you its not entirely your fault. And I don’t mean that in some cliche cheesy way, I mean quite literally it’s not only because you don’t have enough willpower or self-control even though for some of you that may be a big contributing factor. Make no mistake you will need the willpower to burn fat, but this isn’t the only cause. In reality, if we only look at calories in and calories out your not addressing the core cause of the problem. You see burning fat and losing weight is not just about using willpower to starve yourself by eating less and exercising more, because your body is way too smart for that. Within just a week after decreasing calories coming into your body will automatically decrease calories coming out.
Many people refer to this process as your body entering into a so-called “starvation mode.” This is where your metabolism will slow down causing your fat loss to slow to almost nothing. Not only does your body slow your metabolism and this is proven over and over again in study after study, but it also increases the production of a hormone known as ghrelin. Ghrelins role is to signal your brain to make you feel hungry. So to sum up this whole torturous dieting process up you now have fewer calories coming in, fewer calories coming out due to your body responding with a slower metabolism, you’re hungrier because of ghrelin, yet you’re not burning much fat.
In fact, the situation begins to feel like you need to keep cutting calories just to maintain your current body fat rather than to lose more. And that’s ultimately what discourages you and causes you to quit. Starting the whole cycle over again months later when you’re probably in even worse shape than you were before. So what are we missing? Well, it turns out your willpower is actually not the core cause of this problem it’s actually also a hormonal problem rather than just a calorie problem. Once you understand this fat loss becomes easy and keeping it off is even easier. People think that when calories come in they keep going out until you eat too many calories and then your body starts storing those excess calories as fat. Even though this is part of how fat loss works, unfortunately, it’s not so simple. When calories come in your body chooses whether it will store a portion of those calories even if you didn’t cross over your total daily calorie allowance. Also once your body stores fat
