3 Reasons You’re NOT Burning Fat All Day

If your goal is to lose fat as fast as humanly possible, you NEED to be maximizing every minute of every day.  After all, when your body is actively burning fat for 10 hours each day, you’re going to get much faster results than if it were only burning fat for five.

But what if you could burn fat twenty-four hours a day…every day?

Do you realize how much faster you’d progress?  How much more quickly the fat would melt away?  How much more rapidly you’d have the body you want?

That’s right, A LOT faster.

Unfortunately, the harsh reality is this:  While you can indeed burn fat 24 hours a day, you’re probably not even close. On the other hand, the fortunate reality is that it’s not your fault.Yes, there are a number of things the mainstream media has taught us about fat loss that is, quite frankly, completely wrong, and then plenty of other “hidden discoveries” you simply aren’t aware of…all of which are holding you back from experiencing the fastest results.

Do you want to know why most people aren’t even close to burning fat 24 hours a day?  Here are the top 3 reasons:

  1. You’re not addressing your hormones. 

Most weight loss programs simply look at calories.  Eat less than you burn and you’ll have the body of your dreams in no time!

If only it were that simple…..cutting back on the amount of food and starting to exercise will leave you fatter in the end.

The truth is, if your fat loss program is not specifically addressing your internal hormonal environment through nutrient timing, food combining, and planned to overfeed the amount of fat you’re able to burn will be FAR from optimized and you pretty much have zero chance of actively burning fat for more than a few hours a day.

Why?  Because your hormones virtually control everything when it comes to fat burning.

Take care of your hormones and they will take care of you…fat burning for days, hours on end.  Neglect them, on the other hand, and you can pretty much forget about burning fat at all, let alone around the clock.

Again, the three best ways to keep your hormones happy and your body in a fat burning state at all times is through nutrient timing, food combining, and planned to overfeed.  For those of you who are already members of The Fat Loss Dr family, this should sound very familiar.

  1. You’re not performing an exercise that truly boosts your metabolism.

Did you know that certain types of exercise have been shown to dramatically increase metabolism?  And by dramatically I mean for up to 48 hours straight.

Geeeeeeeeeeeez…..48 hours!!!!!

That said, the type of exercise that yields this kind of benefit is NOT the type of exercise you commonly see being performed for fat loss in gyms all around the world.

You see, if you’re doing traditional slow-go cardio or high repetition, lightweight resistance training, you are leaving each session with virtually no positive effect on your metabolism.

Sure, you’ll burn a few calories during the session, but even 45 minutes on a treadmill only burns about 500 calories, or a massive 64g of fat (and that’s assuming that all 500 calories being burned are coming directly from stored fat, which they aren’t).  Multiply that by 3 sessions a week and you’ve burned a little over 200g of fat…..see why you are not getting the results from your workout!!!!!

At that rate, it will take you FOUR MONTHS to lose 2.5kgs of flab…and that’s what you get in exchange for putting in your valuable time at the gym three days a week.

And above all that, traditional exercise provides virtually NO prolonged elevation in metabolism.  In fact, with slow-go cardio, metabolism returns to baseline almost IMMEDIATELY following the exercise session.

If you truly want the time you spend exercising to have a lasting effect on your metabolism (and your waistline), you absolutely must be performing total body resistance training with incomplete recovery.  Once again, those of you who are already VIP members on my website and doing my workouts will know exactly what I am talking about.

  1. You’re not doing anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No matter how good a fat loss program is, it’s not worth anything if you’re not doing it.  Now it is time for a serious reality check.  Why?  Because you KNOW this is your biggest problem…and you’re not alone.

You see, the cold hard truth is that less than 10% of people who begin a fat loss program actually follow through with it for any length of time. You start off with a bang from Monday to Wednesday, then by Thursday you start slacking in the gym and on your diet, by Friday your almost in weekend mode, and then the weekend arrives and you fall off the bus completely. Then next Monday comes around and you start the cycle all over again.

CONQUER YOUR WEEKENDS OR REMAIN THE SAME!!!!

This is the #1 reason you are training to maintain, YOU HAVE TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS, otherwise, you will NEVER reach your fitness goals. So best you harden the f*%k up, take charge of your life and especially your weekends and start getting the results you deserve.
