How To Eat More Food & Lose More Fat

I get asked all the time…
“Brad, how do you eat so much food and still maintain 8% body fat, 365 days per year?”.

Well, on this episode of Live Lean TV, I’m going to share 3 ways to lose fat, the old school way, the traditional way, and then the Supercharged Live Lean Nation way.

Guess what?

I’ve never been on a “diet”.

I’m not blessed with “awesome genetics”.

say hi to my dad

But I follow a lifestyle that allows me to eat a lot of food, and still rock abs 365 days a year. We all know to burn fat you need to be in a caloric deficit. And a caloric deficit is just a fancy word for burning more calories than you’re taking in (energy out is greater than energy in). That’s the simple part. But did you know there are…

Different ways to create a calorie deficit

Here’s a simple example:

Meet Joe Smith…

Joe is a research analyst at a major bank. He made a promise to his wife of 15 years that he is going to lose his unhealthy fat.

To help Joe out, I’m going to show an example of 3 different ways to get to the same 500 calorie deficit. The old school way, the traditional way, and the Supercharged Live Lean Nation way.

Strategy A: Old School Way

No exercise. Just dieting.

– Calories burned from just living: 2,100

– Calories in from food: 1,600

– Caloric deficit: -500 calories

Strategy B: Traditional Way

Traditional low intensity cardio.  Leading to 250 additional calories being burned.

– Calories burned from just living + low intensity workout: 2,350

– Calories in from food: 1,850 (allowing you to eat an additional 250 calories)

– Caloric deficit: -500 calories

Strategy C: Live Lean Nation Approach

Live Lean style workouts. Leading to 650 additional calories being burned.

– Calories burned from just living + Live Lean workout: 2,750

– Calories in from food: 2,250 (allowing you to eat an additional 500 calories)

– Calorie deficit: -500 calories

Look at each strategy carefully…

At the end of the day they are all creating a 500 caloric deficit, however the variables to get there are different.

The Correct Answer

If losing fat was just a numbers game, all three strategies would be equal. However, this is more about science than mathematics. Everything you put in your body (and under some circumstances, what you don’t put in your body) as well as your physical activity creates a hormonal reaction.

Strategy A: is creating a hormonal reaction (slowing metabolism due to low calorie intake) that is working against the body to burn fat.

Strategy B: is creating a slightly better hormonal environment because you are eating more and moving your body a bit more…but…

Strategy C: As you probably guessed, Strategy C is the clear winner.

Why Is Strategy C The Winner?

Your body is smarter than you think. When you drastically decrease the amount of calories you take in, your body gets scared and goes into survival mode. The body doesn’t know when it will be fed again so the body holds on to the fat stores as energy for survival.

When you eat more high protein and healthy fat foods that are lower in sugar, your body releases the fat storage as energy as it knows more food is coming within a few hours.

Bottom line…

If you’re one of those people that’s starving yourself, and a slave to the treadmill for 3 hours a day, you’re essentially becoming a smaller fat person. In other words, the weight you’re losing is probably muscle not fat. This is because your body is holding on to the fat for survival thus leaving muscle to be burned. Not what you want to do as muscle is the key metabolic driver and is what keeps your metabolism going.

So how do you create a caloric deficit without starving yourself?

Eat more of the right types of food + Workout using more of the right types of exercises =  torching fat faster!

When you exercise, you increase your metabolism by building more muscle, you burn more calories, and you elevate the amount of fat burning enzymes in your body.

You’re also keeping your body happy by feeding it an adequate amount of calories (which keeps your body from going into fat survival storage mode) and once again you’re increasing your metabolism. Win-win!

    London England xxx

  2. Hi brad, I normally eat clean but don’t go gym that often. But from know
    I’m going to go gym more so that I can intake more calories. Thanks for the

  3. Is this a serious video? So basically you are saying exercise more, burn
    more calories, so you can eat a little bit more and still lose weight.

    What the fuck man.

  4. By the way Brad I do -one day low carb and one day high carb. Both systems
    are in deficit by 500… With a cheat/re-feed on sat and a Sun fast-day. My
    high carb low fat day is
    143g carbs 40g fat 217g protein – my low carb high fat is:
    27g carbs 67g fat 185g protein_
    I’m looking to loose about 2 pound a week! Would it be better to stay on
    low carb fro 5 days every week rather than alternating?

  5. Hey Brad, I have been following the principals of ESE (Brad Pilon)mixed
    with Intermittent fasting sometimes with carb cycling and sometimes
    without…but doing fast days 2-3 days a week as I change it up…
    (I’m 37, mom of two, 5’6″ and used to be about 15% body fat – now probably
    closer to 20%) . And right when I had finally gotten by body fat where I
    wanted and everything, I developed a cough that left me unable to workout
    the way I had been (20min HIIT and Circuit sessions in AM and PM 5-6 days a
    week) and as a result i lost ALOT of muscle as I was only able to do very
    light workouts and yoga to keep my heart rate down or I would have a cough
    attack. Now about 1.5yrs later they FINALLY have figured out how to get my
    cough under control and I have started back up with my workouts doing at
    least one 20min HIIT session a day and a hour of advanced flow hot yoga
    about 5-6 days a week. So in my attempt to get my body fat back down and
    lean out again I have been doing ESE as I had seen such great results a few
    years back. However now it doesn’t seem to be having any effect on my fat
    loss or weight loss at all….I was wondering if it is possible for the
    body to adapt to it and for it to cease working? I have a horrible
    metabolism to start with and when my muscle mass was higher and my body fat
    lower I was able to eat more freely (but I still follow a gluten free,
    dairy free, soy free, meat free diet due to Hashimotos and Psoriasis and
    gastrointestinal sensitivities….
    I was wondering what your thoughts are? I am so desperately wanting to get
    back to where I was and feeling so defeated….

  6. So your on a caloric deficit 365 days a year? How is it that you build
    muscle? I thought to build muscle and stay lean you had to be ona surplus
    and lift heavy weights…

  7. YEAH, working out is a great factor that influences fatloss. But not the only one.

  8. This isn’t about the topic your talking about, but i was wondering if you
    could help me with this confusion i have. I eat paleo the whole week and
    exercise 70 minutes eat day, I’m in good shape, can i afford to treat my
    self one day of the weekend to a dessert, dinner like Souvlaki and treat
    like whole packet of smith’s chips? please reply! it would help cheers 🙂

  9. Hey Brad,

    First, thanks for the great tips as always!

    What is the workout schedule like in your program? (Length of each workout, and total days per week). Thanks in advance!

    God bless…

  10. Hi, I went over the top with my diet and went as low as eating 1000
    calories for 2 weeks. I can see the results and I’ve lost good amount of
    fat but still want lose more. Is it ok for my body to start eating more
    again with a 500 cal deficit and training everyday?

  11. Brad, you mention in the video that the body goes into survival mode, this
    holding onto fat if you don’t eat enough calories (sure that’s what you
    said!) anyway, so that would suggest intermittent fasting is a big no no,
    but I’m sure I’ve seen a vid by you about your thoughts on it and from time
    to time it’s ok?

    1. Intermittent Fasting is not starving yourself. It’s eating all your calories in your eating window. I follow the 16/8 plan on lifting days and the 18/6 on active rest days. I’ve made nice gains when I’m trying to put on mass and I’ve been able to cut the fat I’ve put on after a bulk with this way of eating. http://www.leangains.com is great site to learn about intermittent fasting. I will warn you that this may or may not be for you. Try it out for a month and see how you like it. If it works for you, GREAT! If not, no big deal. I have found that IF works for me and it is the only way I eat now

  12. Higher intensity is the better because it creates the afterburner effect!
    burning fat outside the gym!

  13. Are you following: A) the old school way B) the traditional way or C) the
    supercharged Live Lean Nation way?
