Fat Burning Secrets of Bodybuilders

Eat Right And Burn Fat Faster

Yes, it is obvious that you need to eat right if you want to lose weight.  There are actually a lot of different strategies to eating right.  Some may not work so great for you and others will work amazingly well.

The key with trying different diet and weight loss strategies is to give them an honest try.  Following a weight loss strategy for just 3 days is not giving it an honest 100% try.

Stick with something for 3-4 weeks and then evaluate it to see whether it is right for you.  If it works then keep going with it and maybe even tweak it to try and make it even more powerful for you.  If it isn’t helping you burn the fat you want to lose then scrap it and try another strategy.  Just make sure you try it for 3-4 weeks before scrapping it.

Here are some strategies that have worked well for millions of people and hopefully one or a few of them will work amazingly well for you as well.  There is no law that says you can’t incorporate more than 1 of these strategies.

1.  Cheat Day

Cheat days are popular with many weight loss programs for a few reasons.  Mentally it gives you a break or a reprieve from the strictness you have been following and trying to attain.  It allows you to enjoy some of the indulgences you have been avoiding.

Physically a cheat day allows your body to reset your leptin levels which is a critical hormone you want to control during weight loss.  When you diet or eat strict whether that be low calories or low in one type of nutrient your body will start to deplete your leptin levels.  When this happens your brain gets a signal that you are starving yourself so it starts manipulating other hormones to slow down the metabolism and store more calories as fat to be used later.

A cheat day for those who are following a strict diet is beneficial to regulating your hormone leptin and keep the fat burning process turned on.  A cheat day is good to incorporate once every 4- 5 days.

2.  Extreme short term dieting

This is when you significantly cut your calories for 1-2 days so that your body has to use the stored calories known as fat in your body.  It also forces your body to better utilize the blood sugars and stored glycogen in your body for energy as well.  When following something like this you may only eat 800-1200 calories in a day for 1-2 days.

Then you will go back to your normal caloric level that is right for you to lose weight.

When you are eating such low calories on these 1-2 days it is suggested that you also consume some branched chain amino acids to help your body maintain your muscle mass and provide specific amino acids that will fuel your body on these severely low calorie days.  It is suggested that you consume 4-6 grams of a BCAA supplement between meals.  So this could be mid-morning, mid-afternoon and before you go to bed.  On these days you would consume around 15 grams total of a BCAA supplement.

This can be a very effective way to lose weight quickly especially in the beginning of a program.
