3 Steps to Sugar, Carb and Acid freedom
As a ‘normal’ Western Diet human, my years of processed foods, poor exercise levels, and “normal” western eating patterns literally programmed my body to burn NOTHING but calories and sugars from the foods I consume each day INSTEAD of burning off body fat that’s stored on your body.
The most popular exercise programs take way too much time and use old-school methods that cause you to crave more carbs and calories – especially calories from sugar – FORCING your body to burn sugars and waste away nothing but stored energy. Look around at gym and see how many members are scoffing energy drinks.
In this state, every time I eat and exercise, my body is busy fighting a losing battle. The eating and the exercising doesn’t have to change: my metabolism has to change.
Fortunately, I’ve discovered a way to reset my body’s fat burning switch so that my body burns fat FIRST every time I move and exercise.
It’s a super simple 3-step metabolic primer from weight loss guru Shaun Hadsall that seems to turn off your body’s “addiction” to burning sugars, while making your most stubborn fat your “go to” energy source in LESS that one week’s time.
1: Try consuming zero starches or fruits for 3 or 4 days in a row during the week.
We are doing this to accelerate depletion of glycogen energy stores and start your body burning mostly fat again. Consume protein in every meal to help increase satiety and keep your body in an anabolic high-energy fat-burning environment.
You can burn a ton more belly fat by using this approach just a few days of the week.
2: Increase your fat intake and double (at least) your servings of green cruciferous veggies on deplete days.
When you lower carbs for a few days you’ll need energy from other sources. Friendly ‘good’ fats and cruciferous veggies should be first choice to help provide this needed energy.
Try extra fish or krill oil, olive oil, coconut oil and raw nuts to increase your fat intake — And spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, arugula, green beans, brussels sprouts and cabbage – all great choices for your veggies.
We are trying to provide all the fiber, vitamins, and minerals necessary to maximize fat-loss during a lower carb phase. And we should experience a BIG DECREASE yin cravings .
3: Double your daily good water intake, while depleting carbs.
Almost everyone underestimates the effectiveness of proper hydration for UNDOING the damage of over-eating, getting rid of excess water retention, and supporting other metabolic processes that burn fat. Of course in my case I supercharge this process by only drinking ultra pure alkaline hydrogen rich water from my own invention, the UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream.
Don’t foregt! If you had high carb meals in the last 2 days you’ll be holding almost an extra 3 grams of water for every gram of carb you consumed. So if you carbed up over the weekend, we’re talking an extra 700 to 1000 grams of water sloshing around between cells!.
Here’s a good rule of thumb. Consume 5% of your total body weight in ounces of water on your carb deplete days. So if you weigh 70kg then you should be shooting for 3.5 litres of water minimum.
Hey, do yourself a favour. Chart it, journal it, log it.. but any way you do it, record it! After 3 or 4 days of using this strategy, your body and hormones will be PRIMED to burn PURE fat when you exercise. And it’s very possible that if you didn’t record your progress, you won’t even realise. That’s the power of our mind’s ability to resists change!
And remember.. this all depends on a good exercise strategy continuing, because that’s what is burning energy and forcing you to change over the a fat burning metabolism.
