You can activate your fat-burning hormones and help with your weight loss program. The routine is quite simple. Restrict all of your sugar intake, have a regulated healthy diet, and workout. You can start off with low-intensity light-weight training or fast on juices to help burn the unwanted fat faster.

Remove all foods high in sugar; starchy veggies; and half of your carbs, especially grains and rice; and then workout with light weights for 30 minutes every other day. Your body will build new muscles from the protein and burn fat for energy for the next 12–48 hours after the workout.

Here is my challenging but effective 3-step fat-burning approach:

1. STOP Consuming ALL Sugar!

  • No starchy veggies
  • No fruit juice at all and only fruits low in sugar like apples
  • No sweets of any kind or products with any type of sugar or sweetener (OK, some stevia and a little honey is fine.)
  • No alcohol, cookies, candy, cereals, processed foods with added sugar, etc. – nothing with sugar

Why? Because if your body has simple carbohydrates, it will just use the calories or energy from this source and not bother burning any existing fat reserves.

Note: Don’t bother with the further steps until you have completed step 1.

2. Eat A Lot Of Vegetables With Beans

  • Have greens for breakfast (fried or steamed is fine, even juiced is OK).
  • Have large salads for lunch and dinner (follow individual body-type recommendations).

Half your plate in each meal should be made of vegetables!

Prefer raw vegetables and steamed cruciferous vegetables. It takes more calories or energy to digest raw vegetables. Their high fiber content makes them very cleansing, thus making them perfect for weight loss. So eat LOTS of greens.

Juicing vegetables every day helps, but it is not as cleansing as fresh veggies.

Suggested Veggies

If you have blood-sugar issues, focus on dark greens. Celery, kale, parsley, and spinach are the best.

For a heavier juice with more protein, add asparagus, string beans, and cauliflower. To sweeten it up, use limes and not carrots, beets, or apples. To replace a meal, just add about 6 tbsp of hemp seeds and a couple tsp of freshly ground flax seeds.

Use only vegetable protein, reduce carbohydrates, and add healthy oil/fat.

  • Stop all animal protein and replace with legumes – beans (kapha and pitta types) and lentils (vata type).
  • Use coconut oil instead of butter and sunflower oil instead of olive oil.
  • Gradually reduce carbohydrates such as rice and other whole grains to half servings (1/2 of a fist size).

Prefer meals of beans or lentils with lots of veggies and a small portion of whole grains with a little oil.

Your body needs protein to build new muscle and tissue as a result of the light-weight training. Both protein and oil (fat) are very satisfying for the body and take away cravings. Remember, there must be some oil and a good portion protein with each meal. Otherwise, you will become nutritionally deficient and will start craving more carbs, and we know that leads to fast weight gain!

3. Eat Less And Stick To A Tight Eating Schedule

  • Never eat after 7 pm, not even fruit. Try to eat earlier at around 4 or 5 pm.
  • Drink only water with lemon or herbal teas between meals and not fruit juices.
  • Eat 3 small meals a day or just 2 meals, or just have a salad for dinner. In other words, EAT LESS!

The body burns fat between meals, so the longer you can make the space between meals, the more fat you will burn. But don’t skip meals, not even breakfast.

Take a late breakfast and early dinner or skip dinner once in a while. No matter what, don’t start snacking on “healthy” snacks. You need to cook and prepare 2 or 3 complete meals each day.

Also, don’t start juicing every meal; use a plate. Cook, prepare, sit down, eat slowly, and when you start to feel full, stop.

You may have to work at this for a few weeks or even a month.

4. Add Some Light Weight Training And/Or Juice Fasting

Do this for 30 mins every other day.

  • Take up 10 minutes of solid cardio first, like running in place or biking to break a sweat, and get your heart rate up.
  • Do at least two sets each and rest 1–2 minutes in between the sets.
  • Each set should be until you have some muscle strain (work up to it).
  • Do some cardio to warm up and cool down, but focus on the weight training to build muscle.

You don’t need a gym to to do this. Just run in place, use a step, or go up stairs. Then, lift some weights and work those muscles.

A juice fast will further force the body to lose more weight if this type of therapy is suitable or necessary.

If you cannot work out every day, the next option is to take up juice fasts and eat only 2 meals a day. Make your choice – workout or eat a lot less.

This is the final focus of my weight-loss program since good eating habits, food combining, and meal planning should be done first. Additionally, a colon cleanse and liver detoxification are absolutely necessary to successfully lose weight and naturally keep it off.

Good digestion and being able to restrict food intake is important. Also, a person should be nutritionally sound without nutritional deficiencies and have good energy levels before following this program.

Hey Bro, why only vegetable protien, why not animal protien you didn't give any reason for that and why not eatinh after 7 this is also baseless.

Pathetic. Eating less is worst way of losing weight. It doesn't take away of tendency to regain weight. Effective way is to add-on muscles to increase your calorie burning. One more thing, brain is smarter than what you think. If anything is deficit for some time then brain will start preserving it. Eating less will trigger trauma for brain and you may end up getting lethargic. Effective way is to cheat the brain by eating smarty and then burning super smartly. I reject your steps big time.

Corn, peas, parsnips, potatoes, pumpkin, squash, zucchini and yams are all examples of starchy vegetables. Non-starchy vegetables are typically flowering parts of the plant. Lettuce, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, spinach, mushrooms, onions, peppers and tomatoes are all considered non-starchy vegetables.

There's a lot of truth in this article however I think it's extremely strict! Sugar intake must definitely be under control in order to lose weight and stay healthy but don't forget your brain needs food too! Fruits do not make me fat, not sure about other people. And it's unhealthy to starve yourself, so eat when you're hungry people!! not 2x a day. Eat a bit of everything is what i would say just choose unprocessed good quality food. Plus weight goes when you're relaxed and happy not overly concerned about it all the time! Peace and love!

This is absolutely sustainable. The article doesn't mention it, but once your body receives actual nutrition and exercise, that's all it starts to want. And will reject the crap we try to feed it. It becomes common sense and you look forward to the exercise. This lifestyle will improve your mental, physical, and emotional capacities. It truly is the best lifestyle and absolutely not a diet.

Your plans are far more difficult to do. We cannot wait for government to control what we eat. We have the responsibility to vhoose whar we eat. And the post is dead on. Its a change...an adjustment. But its worth the discomfort because it will absolutely work. And it is a lifestyle not a diet.

Uuuhhhh this is true but not realistic for most, a bit too excessive of a leap i think, most people with weight issues are going to be like ..."oh yeah sure let me just do that right now" My 3 steps would be: Hold the government responsible for alliwing food to be poisoned. Get them to change the regulations by eliminating toxins, chemicals and excessive sugars, carbs, salts etc. Now eat the new clean food that nourishes your body, feel happier healthier and lose weight ... The end. See my plans simple too! \U0001f611

Do as heavy weights 3 x times a week as you can...more muscle means u burn more fat...all cleanses n detox r BS...that is the job of your liver n colon naturally...no fruit juicing ever..eat whole fruit sparingly, ...but none for an hour after excercise... 3 cups of black coffee... 1 before training...google weight training n Dr. Mercola... the older u get the more important it is...interval training...90% diet 10 excercise...the two together always
