I must confess, the following ketogenic diet will work beyond 2019.
Because, when you right the foundation set and formula for healthy weight loss, anything is possible.
Before we get into the exact step-by-step method for losing weight fast, I want to clear up something that many people (even experts) get very wrong.
You CAN lose weight fast and still be healthy and still avoid the dreaded “rebound weight gain.”
The problem is how people are going about “quick weight loss.” I’m here to help you lose weight quickly and make sure you do in a healthy way.
Studies show that when you lose weight fast, you’re more likely to stick with your plan. And I want you to be 100% committed to the NEW YOU!
Why you should you focus on losing weight FAST AND burning FAT, instead of losing weight slowly…
1.) Have you ever heard of anyone dying from losing weight too fast? How about being too overweight?
There are almost 500,000 obesity related deaths in the USA every year. Half a million!
Ever here of someone dying from shedding weight too fast? Nope, me either!
Even people losing weight quickly the unhealthy way aren’t dying.
There is no reason you should be scared of losing weight too fast, especially when you’re following a health and hormone focused ketogenic diet.
2.) Results early on lead to long-term results
Recent studies show that when you lose weight fast, you will keep the weight off, WHEN you do it in a healthy way. On the other hand, calorie restrictive diets have the opposite effect.
When you restrict calories to lose weight, you end up putting the weight back on.
Which is why it’s very important to lose weight quickly the RIGHT way.
3.) It keeps you motivated
On average, dieters will try 2-5 diet plans every year, and less than 1% of people will ever reach their goals.
It is obvious that people want to get results but often lack the motivation to finish what they started.
There is an unfortunately obvious reason for this:
Eating practically nothing, counting calories, stressing about points, and trying to workout for 1 hour a day and still not seeing noticeable results is EXTREMELY frustrating.
This leads to failure, quitting, and the feeling that NOTHING will ever work, so you even start ignoring the good diets.
It’s no wonder only 1% of people complete their diets when they’re putting in all that work for hardly any results.
The studies show that the faster the weight is lost; the more motivation you will have.
Remember, motivation comes from taking ACTION. Ready to take action? Let’s get started…
Here are the 5 steps to losing weight on the ketogenic diet in 2019:
1.) Get Ready For A Total Carb Detox
The most important part of fast (and healthy) weight loss is the part many people miss.
Your body needs a carbohydrate detox. In fact, your body (and hormones) are BEGGING for it…
When the majority of people try to lose weight, they start by counting their calories and eating LESS.
As discussed above, this “slow and steady” approach to weight loss reduces long-term success and is extremely difficult to do when your initial motivation runs out.
That’s why a carb detox is the best and healthiest place to start.
A carb detox (i.e a short ketogenic diet) will naturally cleanse your body, forcing it to get rid of excess water, inflammation, and kickstart natural hormone balance.
A good carb detox will usually result in a 4-7 pound weight drop in the first 7 days.
This also will help to reset your insulin levels and help your body become more sensitive to carbohydrates when you reintroduce them back into your diet.
You will notice that you will probably feel “off” for the first few days. This is a natural part of the carbohydrate detox process.
During a keto diet, this is commonly known as the “keto flu” but, don’t worry it only lasts for 1-3 days.
2.) Eat More Fat, A Little More Protein, And A Lot of Vegetables
Alright, so I’ve convinced you to cut the carbs for awhile. I know it won’t be easy, but nothing worth it ever is, right?
Here’s what you’re going to do, eat, and drink during your carb detox to make it as painless as possible AND to maximize your results.
The goal, after all, is to feel better, look better, and lose as much weight as possible!
During the carbohydrate detox, you will want to consume lots of protein at every meal. Foods like organic chicken, organic eggs, grass-fed beef, and salmon are great sources.
You will always want to cook and cover these foods in lots of high-quality fats like grass-fed butter, extra virgin olive oil and organic coconut oil.
Do not fear fats when losing weight, because they are key to healthy hormone levels and blood flow. Fats are actually what’s going to get you into fat-burning ketosis.
Many women that have gone through my 3-Week Ketogenic Diet have lost over 7 pounds in the first week and many have gone on to lose over 20 pounds in just 3 weeks.
Weight loss varies, but 100% of my customers achieve some desired result: weight loss, inches shed, better sleep, nicer skin, and an overall feeling of accomplishment.
Finally, make sure to include a low carbohydrate source of vegetables at every meal. The best foods are asparagus, broccoli, brussels sprouts, spinach, romaine lettuce, and much more.
3.) Focus on Food Quality, Not Quantity
I always say, instead of suppressing your appetite, SATISFY your appetite. Too many people trying to lose weight are focusing on points, calories, and the scale.
This obviously isn’t working, because if it was, I wouldn’t have to write this article.
100% of the clients who needed to lose over 50 pounds and who weighed 200 pounds or more had hormonal problems that prevented them from losing weight or burning fat.
High cortisol, excess estrogen, low growth hormone, low thyroid, low testosterone, insulin resistance, and many others are likely making weight loss impossible.
The solution? Focus on NOURISHING your body with high quality foods, macronutrients, and hormone-healing meals.
4.) Metabolic Exercise During And/Or After Keto Detox
This is one of the most common mistakes people make when learning how to lose weight fast.
When you start a detox, most people make a very crucial mistake.
They try to add in lots of cardio or long distance running into their workouts in order to burn more calories. Here’s why you SHOULD NOT do this.
You have a limited amount of willpower. Making a massive change in your diet becomes much more burdensome when paired with a grueling workout routine.
You can lose weight without exercising. It has been proven over and over again in the scientific literature that you CAN lose weight without exercise.
Long distance cardio causes increased cravings and depletes glycogen. Long distance cardio is particularly bad because it raises your cortisol levels and will increase cravings from sugar depletion (source, source).
Instead, you want to insert exercise after you are done detoxing.
Once you have started to eat carbohydrates again, this is when you should pick up an exercise regimen. You do this to prevent something called the down-regulation of metabolism.
This is where your body’s metabolism slows in response to the lower amounts of food you are eating. All it takes is a 3x a week exercise regimen to mitigate this (study).
I recommend metabolic resistance training
This form of exercise will help prevent your metabolism from slowing, help you build lean muscle tissue, and burn more calories the SMART way.
I offer a complete metabolic exercise plan with all of my diet programs.
5. Heal Your Digestive System, Detox Your Liver, and Boost Your Thyroid
Optimal digestion and assimilation of food and nutrients is vital for healthy weight loss. The hormones of the digestive tract are responsible for appetite control, food digestion, nutrient absorption, and toxin removal.
Your digestive system is strongly related to your nervous system, which influence your endocrine system (hormones). If you treat your stomach like a garbage disposal for low-quality foods, your hormones will repay you with weight gain.
Overconsumption of inflammatory foods can lead to leaky guy syndrome, IBS, chronic diarrhea, ulcerative colitis, and more food intolerances. An inflamed “gut” makes it nearly impossible to have a flat stomach or engage the muscles consisting of your “core.”
Optimal health and weight loss are not possible without a healthy liver. The liver is the major detoxification organ and also filters most hormones. It is responsible for 75% of T3 conversion (thyroid hormone) and provides energy in the form of glycogen. It also filters excess estrogen.
When the liver is overburdened by excess stress hormones, alcohol, processed foods, artificial sweeteners, HFCS/sugar, and an overall poor quality diet, the 2 phases of detoxification are inhibited.
The thyroid gland produces three hormones: Thyroxine (T4), Triiodothyronine (T3) and Calcitonin. T4 and T3 are what most people think of as “thyroid hormones.” These hormones play a significant role in your metabolism and in energy regulation in the body. Thyroid hormones act on almost every kind of cell in your body to increase cellular activity or metabolism. If there is too much or too little thyroid hormone, the metabolism of your entire body is impacted.
Because the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 control cellular metabolism throughout the body, when there is not enough of them for any reason, this metabolic function slows and becomes impaired.
Since the thyroid gland regulates metabolism, there is a strong correlation between thyroid disease and weight. Weight gain is more severe in people with hypothyroidism due to an excess accumulation of salt and water; weight loss is common in people who have hyperthyroidism.
