Fast Fat Loss

Fast fat loss is something almost all of us would love to have when we are trying to lose weight.  In fact, burning fat is the primary target of this weight loss program.

However, losing weight rapidly is nearly impossible to accomplish safely and effectively (meaning being able to keep it off) without starvation or those nasty weight loss supplements that are on the market.

Still, there are a few ways to lose fat as quickly as you possibly can. 


Fast Fat Loss Refresher

As I discussed on the previous page, losing weight (and therefor fat) rapidly is a dangerous proposition at its worst.  At its best, it can be done, but will almost surely lead to you re-gaining the weight.  In fact, when re-gaining weight, it is quite common to gain more than you lost initially.

The reality is that you have the control over the speed with which you lose the weight.  It is all about how closely you follow this weight loss program.  Following all the advise in this website to the letter will give you the best chance at fast fat loss that can also be kept off.  Deviation from the plan, which most of us do from time to time, will increase the time it takes to burn of that fat.

Fat Loss Refinements

Even though you are following the program to the letter, there are some refinements you can make to gain a little extra ground on your fat loss efforts.  Here are a few that have worked for me:

  1. Fast for 12 hours each day - Do this for two weeks to "wake up" your system.  Now this sounds difficult, but it really isn't.  Say your 5th meal of the day is at 7:00 p.m.  To get a 12-hour fast, don't eat meal #1 tomorrow until after 7:00 a.m.  You will sleep for eight of the 12 hours.  It's amazing how this jump starts your fat loss.
  2. Extra servings of vegetables - On my Fruits and Veggies page I describe how vegetables help fill you up, slow down carbohydrate digestion and naturally cleanse your digestive tract.   Bump up your vegetable content at your three main meals to enhance this process.
  3. Change up your workout - Since you will be eating more vegetables for a couple weeks, you will likely go into a caloric deficit (burning more than you are consuming by a larger than normal margin).  By doing so, you may lose a little energy.  Instead of throwing heavy weights, do what I suggest on my Speed Workout page.  Reduce the amount of weight and increase the number of reps that you perform in each set.  Go to 15 - 20 or even 25 reps per set and reduce the rest between sets to no more than 30 seconds.  This will put your cardiovascular system into overdrive and your body will focus on burning fat for the extra energy you need.  Stick with your compound movements (it uses more muscle groups per exercise).  Be sure to get a good dose of whey protein to fuel your muscles after lifting, too.

If you are looking for fast fat loss, be reasonable in your expectations.  Nothing safe and permanent happens over night.  Stick to the program and use the three refinements I discuss above to get a little extra out of your fat loss.
