Have you ever felt like you’ve been dieting for a while but aren’t seeing the results you expected? Or that you’re training 4-5 times per week but you’ve still got that belly pooch?
If so, I want to let you in on a little secret.
The stress of dieting and exercising intensely can actually be holding you back from achieving your fitness goals.
That’s because long periods of intense training or prolonged dieting increase your stress levels. Stress triggers your body’s cortisol response which, in turn, causes your body to conserve calories rather than burn stored fat. This process actually leads your body to hold onto fat instead of burning it for energy.
How to Double Your Rate of Fat Loss
Therefore, to double your fat loss rate, you first have to reduce your long-term cortisol exposure by taking time off from intense exercise, eating more, and relaxing. Didn’t expect that answer, did you?
I’ve actually seen this process play out personally over the last few weeks. I’ve lost body fat and increased my muscle mass even though I haven’t been particularly meticulous about my nutrition or training. (On vacation last weekend with my wife’s family, I literally ate 4 chicken-fried chicken breasts…and they were so good.)
In fact, the holidays or any time that you’re out of your normal routine can be a great time to BURN MORE FAT and set yourself up for a faster metabolism in the future.
I know this sounds crazy, but it’s highly related to the amount of stress you’re experiencing. More specifically, if you’re not seeing results, it’s likely that the inputs you’re giving your body don’t match the outputs you’re expecting from your body. For example, your recovery period HAS TO match the level of your inputs or your body will always be in survival, hold-on-to-every-fat-cell-for-energy mode!
That’s why on this week’s episode of the Million Dollar Body podcast, I’m going to tell you exactly what inputs you need to get the outputs you want. Plus, you’ll learn how you can double your rate of fat loss, especially if you’ve been doing overtime in the diet and exercise arena and haven’t been seeing results.
- What happens to your metabolism (and your testosterone levels) when you’re overly focused on training or restrictive dieting
- The science behind taking a break for a specific amount of time and how it actually sets you up to burn more fat later
- What you should be wary of with this method and who should and should NOT try it
I literally would have paid thousands of dollars for this information years ago. And, I’m giving it all to you today for free. Our bodies work in a certain way, and once you know the secret, you can unlock the fat loss you’ve been looking for at double the rate (while doing less!).
If you’re ready to know the ins and outs of this fat-burning process, this podcast is for you!
