Best Way to Lose Weight: 5 Secrets to Weight Loss

There has been much debate as to what the best ways are to lose weight. Nutrition and diet specialists always tend to place their main emphasis on counting calories, or certain foods, or “magic” nutrients that claim to help you lose weight.

In reality, the key to losing weight is to use a holistic approach that emphasizes the proper diet, the right amount of exercise and rest.

With that being said, here are my top 5 secrets that will help you to lose weight fast:

Cortisol - The Reason You Are Overweight!

1. Control Your Cortisol Levels

If there is one thing I would like for my readers to understand about weight loss, then it would have to be the effect that cortisol has on fat loss and muscle. The reason I feel that this is the #1 weight loss secret is because this is a subject that is seldom discussed.

Cortisol is a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands in response to stress. When it is elevated, your body will do the complete opposite of what you would like it to do. Your body will actually store fat and eat muscle tissue at the same time (thus lowering your metabolism and preventing your ability to get in shape).

Some of the top reasons your cortisol levels will rise are:

1. An improper diet that does not have the right macronutrient ratios and that is too low in calories.
2. Too much exercise (yep, you heard it right!)
3. Emotional stress.
4. Not getting enough sleep.
5. Not being properly hydrated.

If that is not enough for you, when cortisol levels rise, it increases your chances of having high cholesterol, hardened arteries, heart disease and will even affect your immune system adversely.

Also, too much cortisol wreaks havoc in your body’s ability to process insulin and carbohydrates. As a result, you will suffer from tons of cravings and will be more susceptible to storing carbohydrates as fat instead of using them for energy.

To find out ways to control this hormone, take a look at my Fat Extinction Program where I reveal 5 tricks to keeping your cortisol levels right where they need to be in order to achieve the accelerated weight loss you deserve and permanent fat extinction.

2. Don’t Forget Your Macronutrients

Ah yes….we cannot forget those macronutrients (carbs, proteins and fats). Without them you are like a ship without a sail when it comes to achieving your weight loss goals! You see, all 3 macronutrients, not just 1 or 2, are needed for survival. Also, while many people do follow weight loss diets that contain the 3 macronutrients, they fail to eat them in the right ratios and at the right times of the day.

This is one of the reasons why people do not get the weight loss results they deserve. They spend all of their hard earned money following fad diets and while their heart is on the right track, the system being used is flawed and thus they fail to achieve permanent success. If you are ever going to lose that unwanted belly fat, you must eat the right macronutrients at the right times of the day. If you do not, don’t expect to change much.

If you feel like making some changes to your diet and want to blast away at that belly fat, all you need to do is follow a few simply techniques I have developed in the Fat Extinction Program to be on the track for weight loss success!

Best Ways to Lose Weight: The Right Exercises

3. Apply the Right Exercise Techniques

It amazes me how so many people think that exercising is boring. They think that you need to do the same exercises every time you exercise in order to achieve their weight loss goals. I am so sorry but I have some “Breaking News”: These People Are Dead Wrong! As you will see in my Fat Extinction Program, exercise can and SHOULD be different each time.

By adding variety to your exercise program, it will not only allow you to keep things fun and exciting but also give you better fat loss results! Also, if you use periodization principles (the logical manipulation of sets, reps and rest in between sets) and apply them correctly as done in my Fat Extinction Program, you can easily triple your results!

Going back to the subject of variety, it is perfectly fine to walk on a treadmill one day and walk outside the other. We are all very busy and as long as you get some form of exercise in while following the parameters specified in the program, you will be just golden.

Best Ways to Lose Weight - Sleep

4. Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite

While you definitely should not let the bed bugs bite, you should definitely be getting your sleep. Sleep is not only important for recovery, but it also helps to keep you anabolic as during sleep your body produces a ton of anabolic hormones like testosterone and growth hormone. As a result of staying anabolic, you are able to increase your metabolism, blast away your belly fat and have a leaner physique!

To add to the list of why sleeping is so important, another concern with a lack of sleep is that your cortisol skyrockets when you do not sleep! (Please refer back to Secret #1). In addition, your immune system function will get compromised and thus, you will be more susceptible to getting a cold or infection. And obviously, lack of sleep leads to fatigue, depression, lack of focus and irritability.

Best Ways to Lose Weight - Water

5. Drink Plenty of Water

Water composes about 65% of the human body. It is needed in order for our body to survive. Water, believe it or not, helps to prevent over eating especially when you are feeling hungry for a late night snack. I only drink water for the most part, but every now and then I’ll sneak in a Crystal Light but I don’t overdo it since plain water works best (crystal light does have some artificial sweeteners).

Realize that by applying these tactics to your daily lifestyle you will be well on your way to increasing your metabolism and blasting away that unwanted belly fat.
