Fat Loss

Everyone knows that in order to lose that pesky lard you have to get yourself into a caloric deficit, i.e. expend more energy then what you put in your mouth. Sounds pretty easy, right? Well, if it was we’d all be lean.

Unfortunately, your body is pretty smart and gets rather comfortable with the way you are. This means you have a bit of a battle on your hands. It is not as straight forward as eating less and exercising yourself stupid.

Your body will first look for energy in the form of carbohydrate which happens to be stored in the muscle tissue and is generally used during exercise.

When that is gone it will go to the muscle tissue itself i.e. the good stuff. This is the last thing you want to happen. You want the body to get hold of the bad stuff and start burning it and leave the good stuff alone !

To do this you have to reduce muscle glycogen by reducing your caloric intake while at the same time perform intense exercise program forcing your body to turn to the fat cells for fuel.

The other important factor is the type of exercise you do and how you do it. You already know from the above that your body is pretty clever in getting away with whatever it can get away with. If it can just cruise along it will. In other words if you go for a jog day after day doing the same routine it will figure out soon enough what you are up to and it will adapt. So unless you run longer and longer distance or faster and faster (or both) which is simply unsustainable you are going to become very efficient (or very dead) in that activity hence burning less and less fat.

If, on the other hand,  you get a bit sneaky and trick your system so it does not know what is coming next, you will get far better results. In other words, you have to keep your body guessing so it cannot adapt to your training.

Programs are designed with all of the above in mind, including hormonal response you are likely to get from different methods of training. For example, an exercise performed in a  particular way will spike your testosterone while the same exercise performed differently will be aimed at increasing growth hormone and reduce the stress hormone cortisol.

You can expect fat loss of 0.5 to 1.5kg per week. There are also rapid fat loss programs that can bring greater results but I do not recommend them for more then 2 weeks.
