10 steps to lose weight quickly! Part 9
Vary your daily carbohydrate ingestion
In this chapter I would like to share with you a very effective diet. The essence of it is to change your calorie and carbohydrate ingestion every day. It is worth using this technique if the pace of losing weight already slowed down extremely. Your diet, lasting 2-3 months now, might have come to a point when results come slower, although you keep your diet. This is a natural process, don’t get frustrated. The hardest part it to lose the last 5-7 kilos of overweight.
Why does losing weight stop at some point?!
I wrote several times that our body is an astonishing „machine”. It always adapts to the changing circumstances. It is just the same with a diet. Let’s say you started your diet with 90 kilos and want to reach 65 kg. You are 73kg now and did not lose a pound since weeks. You do exercises, do not eat snacks, eat small portions of healthy food, but your weight loss just stopped. So, what to do now?
If you did not take fat burning products so far, I would suggest you to try one of them. You still need all your power of will to resist snacks or to eat less? Try Regenon! If you would like your body to burn more calories, I recommend you Adipex or Sibutramine. If you try to use some diet product, then you should forget the fluctuating carbohydrate diet described here for at least 4-6 weeks. Namely you will be able to get rid of many kilos with their help. The advanced diet described in this article should be executed if you only have the last 5-10 kilos of overweight on.
If you already use fat burning or metabolism-enhancement products, then you must cheat your body and start the following tricky diet.
Why is it bad to consume big amounts of carbohydrates?
Carbohydrate is something that your body loves to store. Perhaps you are still able to recall from the things learnt at school what anatomic route food takes down your body. What kind of biochemical processes are needed to get them degraded. But I do not want to attack you with the hard facts here, rather to highlight the important part specific physiological and biochemical processes play in our everyday lives.
Many people share the misbelief that fat only comes from fat, but I have bad news for them: unfortunately mainly carbohydrates get transformed into fat, if a surplus of them is consumed.
As a result of high carbohydrate ingestion, the pancreas starts to produce insulin, which has the understood task of putting glucose into the muscle and fat cells. But, apart from that, it takes part in other routes of metabolism as well. Altogether it can be stated, if speaking of insulin, that it is a hormone in charge of building and storage processes. It makes the liver produce more glycogen and fat acids, the fat acids from the blood get into the fat tissue, where they get transformed and stored. So it can be stated that insulin plays an important role in the development of obesity.
How should I start with the carbohydrate fluctuation diet?
How many calories do you consume daily? If you do not know it exactly, you can find some calculators on the internet that will help you telling it. Just an example, for your help! The daily calorie ingestion of an 80 kilo woman: 2 250 calories, 1 985 calories in case of a 70 kilo woman and 1 780 calories in case of a 60 kilo woman. You have to eat ca. 250 calories more or less with every 10 kilos. This example is not exact at all, as it could be smaller or even bigger, depending on the age, but what I described here is not far from the truth.
Define how many carbohydrates, proteins, fat you need a day. While on a diet, ca. 50-55% of carbohydrates, 30% of protein and 15% of fat is suggested. If looking at the 80 kilo woman, then 1 237 calories of carbohydrates (309 gram carbohydrates), 675 calories proteins (meaning 168 gram proteins) and 337 calories of fat (37,5 gram fat) out of the total 2 250 calories.
Start to consume the right amount of calories (carbohydrate, protein and fat) for 10 days.
Higher carbohydrate day! After 10 days your body got used to the changed circumstances. It is high time to play a trick on it! Just increase the carbohydrate ingestion by 50%. Start to consume more carbohydrates for 3 days, while keeping protein and fat consumption on the same level. That means that you provide your body with more calories.
Less carbohydrate day! After 10 days, decrease your daily carbohydrate ingestion again by 50% for 3 days. Of course the daily amount of fat and proteins is not subject to change in this case. So your daily calorie consumption will increase.
Normal day! Get back for 3 days to the original level of carbohydrate ingestion. Repeat the fourth, fifth and sixth steps cyclically.
I hope that it did not get too complicated.
Here is a concrete example:
80kg, woman. 2250 calories daily. 300 gram of it are carbohydrates.
– She keeps the diet for 10 days, until the body gets used to it. 2250 calories, 300 gram of carbohydrates.
– Then she increases the daily amount of carbohydrates to 450 gram. The ingestion of protein and fat does not change in this case. More carbohydrates by 150 gram and further 600 calories. This way the daily calorie consumption rises to 2 850 calories.
– She decreases the amount of carbohydrates to a daily amount of 150 gram for 3 days. The ingestion of protein and fat does not change in this case. This way the daily calorie consumption falls by 600 calories to 1 650 calories.
– Keeps the normal diet for 3 days with 300 gram of carbohydrates and 2 250 calories.
– Repeat the cycle again.
Why is this method effective?
Because you can easily play a trick on your body with this method. Why it is important?
It is hard to cheat the mechanism that was coded in our genes throughout evolution, a gene that was responsible for survival and did everything to grow energy stocks, namely body fat. If you eat only rarely than your body feels insecure about it, and does not dare burning the food it gets, but rather stores it to get prepared for the next fasting period. Apart from this it slows down the metabolism through decreasing the thyroid functions, and provides calories through sacrificing muscles, in order to lower the calorie needs of the body – falling into step with the occasional nutrition. This can be very well observed in the everyday life as well. If you do eat very rarely, you won’t be hungry any more after a few days – your body slowed down, adapted to the situation. But if you start to eat every two hours, let’s say 6 times a day, then you will notice in a short time that only one single meal left out will cause you incredible hunger. What happens in this case is that your body got used to the regularity, it works and burns on maximum speed, while the metabolism is very fast. This is what we need, 6-8 meals a day. This is a crucial element of a professional diet! Further, if you also fluctuate your calorie and carbohydrate ingestion, the body won’t be able to adapt to it. If you keep a high carbohydrate day, the body will feel like there is no need to store fat, as it gets just enough nutrients. Then after three days there is a BOOMM. Huge stress strikes down. You ingest far less calories and carbohydrates. As a defensive action it reaches out for the fat stocks and burns it to get energy out of it. In another 3 days you increase the amount of calories again, so your body will get relaxed again, and does not slow down the metabolism. Weight loss will not stop this way.
