No one wants temporary weight loss, right?
Yet, that's what most people get because they follow the wrong programs.
Your typical weight loss diet program that you see plastered all over your television sets and computers is great for temporary body weight loss.
If you want to lose weight fast…
Go ahead and follow the advice of the celebrities that have been paid big bucks to influence you to buy this or that diet program.
If you like to lose body weight in the form of muscle and end up in worse shape than when you started…
Those weight loss programs are simply amazing.
You will weigh less for a little while. You'll look worse and you'll feel worse. BUT hey, at least your body weight is less. That is until you start eating ‘normal' again.
Then you'll blow up like a balloon.
Weight Loss Diets Give Temporary Results — Bad Results at That
If you want to look better and feel better permanently, you MUST make permanent changes.
Typical weight loss diets starve you — it doesn't have to be that way.
Follow my advice, and you'll never be hungry… plus you'll look the best you ever have and you'll feel better than you ever have.
You must lift weights and perform cardiovascular exercise along with any diet you choose to follow.
Without weight lifting and cardio, you will lose weight due to any calorie deficit you create but you will lose precious muscle in the process.
Muscle is Your Ally — Don't Lose Your Only Ally
Muscle is your biggest ally in your goal to burn fat from your body. You've got to do everything in your power to keep as much of your ally as possible during weight loss.
You must understand that losing muscle decreases your metabolism and makes weight loss even tougher.
Muscle burns calories. The more muscle you have, the more food you can eat and not gain body fat or body weight.
After you go through one of those typical weight loss programs that starve you and feed you cardboard, you will end up in worse shape than before you started the program. When you lose muscle, you look worse and burn fewer calories each and every day.
Sure, you might be happy because the scale says you are at a lower body weight.
What you don't know, though, is the ratio of muscle to fat in your body has decreased! This means you have less muscle and more fat than before you started. Not good.
From that point on, you have to eat even less to lose more weight. This starts a downright vicious cycle.
Eventually, you will be starving yourself. Your body will hold onto fat stores and feed off your muscle for energy. The body will keep the fat because body fat is more important than muscle in sustaining life.
Body fat serves as stored energy for the body.
Feed Your Body and It Will Let Go of the Body Fat
The body will hold onto body fat if it believes it is in danger. And that's exactly what most weight loss diets will do to you. Your body will begin to feed off of your muscle mass for energy.
The number on the scale will go down quickly, but you'll be losing your most important ally in your war on fat loss.
The only way to prevent muscle loss during weight loss is to lift weights and eat more. This tells your body that it's fine to burn fat from your body and keep your muscle. Burn fat with cardiovascular exercise, and create the calorie deficit through exercise.
This is an entirely different strategy than any of those typical weight loss programs, and that's why it works.
You eat more and exercise to burn the fat away.
You stay happy and feel great the entire time you're burning nasty body fat.
