Lose Up to 15lb in Just 15 Days: Fat Burning Made Easy

Short Term Fasting 

To lose weight quickly, you’ll be implementing short-term fasting. Now, this isn’t going to be some long drawn out fast where you’re starving all the time. Instead, you’ll be periodically going without food in a planned manner that will basically supercharge your fat burning to a level that you’ve never seen before.

How? When you fast, you achieve two things: 

First, you experience reduced insulin levels. This means you’ll be more prone to burning up body fat as a fuel source because there is no glucose present for your body to use. Keeping insulin levels low is paramount for maximum fat burning success. Second, you’ll also get a huge release of catecholamines, which are substances that help to signal the body to ramp up fatty acid utilization, releasing fatty acids into the bloodstream for use as fuel. With this two-pronged approach, you can’t NOT be losing body fat.

Forget about what you may have heard about fasting and it causing the “starvation” effect, resulting in a slow metabolism. You aren’t going to be fasting long enough for that to happen here, so it’s of no concern. You’ll fast for a brief period and then fuel your body with smart foods that keep the fat burning process moving while keeping your metabolism where it needs to be. Most people are unable to really fully utilizes their fat stores because they are eating all day long. When a steady stream of fuel is coming in, why would your body turn to fat stores instead? It won’t – it’s that simple. By fasting, you force your body to tap into those fat stores as a fuel source. The end result is far superior rates of fat burning. You might think that while in the fast state you’ll be starving, but that isn’t the case. In fact, many report feeling no hunger whatsoever once their body adapts to being fasted.

Low-Carb Diet 

Now, in addition to fasting, you’ll also be reducing your carbohydrate intake. If you want to optimize your fat burning, a lower carb diet is simply the best way to go. Again, just like fasting, this will help to minimize your insulin levels, forcing the body to turn to fat as a fuel source. Since insulin is the primary fat storage hormone, the less of it you have in your body at all times, the better. 

A reduction in your carbohydrate intake also means better control over your hunger. It’s a simple fact: carbs make you hungry. The more of them you eat, the more of them you want to eat. By cutting back on carbs, you’ll make it far easier to stick to your diet plan. Know though that with this diet plan you won’t be cutting out all carbohydrates. That’s unhealthy and any plan that has you doing so is not one you want to be following. Instead, we’ll be building your diet focused primarily around vegetables, with the odd piece of fruit added in as well. These foods are extremely dense in the nutrients your body needs to help sustain a fast metabolism and keep you healthy. 

If you cut out these vital nutrients, you’ll be increasing your long-term disease risk for conditions like heart disease. Health always needs to be a top priority. However, these carbohydrate sources are so low in calories and so rich in dietary fiber that they will have almost no influence on your blood sugar or insulin level, therefore they won’t hinder fat burning. Fruits do contain some natural fruit sugar, however in this plan, you’ll be eating lower sugar containing fruits pairing them with a protein or a fat source (or both!) to ensure that your blood glucose levels stay as stabilized as possible. This also helps prevent your diet from becoming boring.

If all you’re eating all day long is chicken breast and broccoli, it won’t be long before you start cheating or give up all together. As you begin on this low carb diet, your body will begin to use up all the glucose present in the bloodstream for fuel. After that, it’ll turn to muscle glycogen, which is the storage form of carbohydrates in the muscle tissue. Once that has been depleted, you body will have no other option but to tap into your fat stores. Most people who consume a higher carbohydrate intake will always keep refilling their muscle glycogen levels, hence, their body never gets to that level of fat burning. On this program, we’ll ensure you do.

The 15-Day Diet Plan for Meat Lovers 

This diet plan is based around the Di.et recommendation of 1000 calories for women and 1200 calories for men. This plan assumes that you are exercising in late afternoon/early evening and schedules your pre and post workout meals around that time. If you are exercising in the morning, simply shift these meals around to that time instead, moving your other meals accordingly. The plan is flexible, so adjust it to meet your schedule! On non-workout days, you’ll be fasting. When short term fasting for the day, you are permitted to drink water (very important!), black coffee, herbal teas as well as low sodium bone or vegetable broth if you prefer.
