The best way to lose weight fast and keep it off is to find a program that not only promotes fat loss, but doesn’t decrease muscle mass at the same time.
The fastest way to lose weight is to live off of your own body’s fat.
The body uses energy from three different areas: glycogen/carbohydrates, fats and protein. The body takes energy first from the carbohydrates reserve then turns to protein and fat for needed energy. Your body has about a 3 day storage of carbohydrates. If you keep that reserve depleted, your body will go straight to the fat and protein.
If you are consuming sugar, your body will use that first, then go to storage. As long as you are eating sugar, you are not burning fat. Your diet needs to reduce carbs/sugar to a level that will compel the body to go after alternate energy storage. Ideally, fat storage will be used as the primary energy source.
You want to be careful not to have your body go after your muscle. It is important to increase your protein intake to a high-grade bioavailable protein to reduce the risk of muscle depletion while trying to lose weight. It is recommended during weight loss that you consume .5 – 1 gram of protein for every pound you weight. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you will want to consume 75 to 150 grams of protein to protect your muscle mass.
70% protein, 15% fat, 15% carbohydrates
