Today I’m going to share with you the very BEST weight loss diet strategy to easily lose belly fat WITHOUT starving yourself or excessive exercise.
Before I share about the BEST weight loss strategy to lose weight and flatten your belly, there’s no way to Target just the fat from your belly.
We have to burn fat from our whole body to tap into the fat stores around our midsection.
Although exercise can increase the amount of calories that we burn and help us burn a little more fat, the main driver of fat loss is going to be what and when you eat.
So I want to give you the very BEST approach too easily burn fat fast.
As you burn fat from your whole body you’ll definitely notice a difference around your waist and like I said, this eating strategy is very effective for seeing results within a few days.
To effectively burn fat we can’t just concentrate on calories in and calories out. Insulin is a fat storing hormone and it is directly linked to being overweight, hunger and cravings that are hard to control.
If you want to burn fat, the fastest way to do it is by controlling and lowering your insulin levels.
Insulin is released to control your blood sugar by shuttling glucose into your muscles and your liver to be used for energy.
When your insulin levels are high your body cannot burn fat.
In fact, It has no need to burn fat because your body can get plenty of energy from the glucose that’s in your bloodstream that triggered the insulin to be released to begin with.
The worst part is that not only does insulin block fat loss, but it also causes the body to store excess glucose as fat.
However, all hope is not lost! You have another hormone known as glucagon that pretty much has the inverse function.
After depleting stored glucose from your muscles and from your liver your blood sugar will begin to drop.
When your blood sugar drops too low, glucagon can actually raise your blood sugar by converting glycerol in your fat cells into glucose for fuel.
Glucagon also signals the fat cells to release free fatty acids in a process known as lipolysis.
To put it simply, glucagon signals the body to release stored fat to be used as fuel.
There are many studies that compare the effects of these two hormones insulin and glucagon, but my favorite is one of the simplest where a group of researchers studied the effects of these two hormones on rats.
The study was published in the Journal of Comparative and Physiological Psychology.
In this study, half of the rats where injected with insulin and the other half were injected with glucagon. The rats that received the insulin gained body fat and ate more. The rats that received the glucagon lost body fat.
Now nobody’s going to be injecting you with glucagon, but there are ways that you could naturally lower your insulin levels and increase your glucagon levels through diet.
The eating strategy that I’m about to go over do exactly that in the most effective way.
As long as blood sugar is available, your body will preferentially burn that for fuel over fat.
So what is the best way to lower blood sugar in the shortest amount of time? The answer is intermittent fasting!
There is no better way to lower insulin and lower blood sugar levels than not eating at all.
I’m not advocating that you to starve because that usually leads to a binge which leads to a very high spike in blood sugar and insulin storing any kind of fat that you might have lost right back, if not more.
I highly recommend that you try a couple simple fasting approaches such as intermittent fasting which involves a 18 hour fast followed by an 6 Hour feeding window.
An advanced version of fasting would be a 20-hour fast followed by a 4 hour feeding period, this is typically referred to as The Warrior Diet.
Another version of intermittent fasting is doing OMAD or commonly called, “One Meal A Day.” You’ll fast for 23 hours and ONLY eat 1 meal.
After that comes your longer-duration fasts where you don’t eat anything for 2 to 7 days. This is called prolong fasting.
Although I don’t recommend these for beginners, fasting for longer duration’s is scientifically proven to be the most effective way to lower blood sugar and insulin levels while simultaneously increasing glucagon levels.
Meaning, there is no other diet approach out there that will lower your insulin and burn fat quite as much as fasting.
This makes perfect sense because even protein can be converted into glucose and can spike your insulin, but if you eat nothing at all, the only thing that your body has to work off of for energy after depleting your liver and your muscles of glycogen is stored energy in the form of fat.
Again, don’t worry if you’re not willing to not eat for 7 days that’s something that I only recommend to people that have a lot of experience.
You can get similar benefits from a simple intermittent fasting plan that’s quite doable.
Did you know you look 5-7lbs heavier than you really are?…
Most people are carrying around an extra 5-7 pounds that makes them FEEL and LOOK fatter, without actually BEING fatter.
And it means you probably suffer from some gut inflammation that’s pushing against your belly from the inside out and making you look fatter.
… you can fix it by TOMORROW…
