Live Lean Nation, in today’s episode I’m sharing I’m sharing 3 ways to lose weight this week.
So by now you should know we don’t mess around with fad diets or temporary results.
Or if you’re new to the show, we Live Lean 365 days a year.
Meaning we’re in it for the long game.
We don’t flop around.
We make Lean gains every day.
But occasionally during your Live Lean journey, you may want to kick start your body into high fat burning overdrive, so you can lose weight and shred down quicker for an upcoming event, vacation, or photoshoot.
But this DOES NOT mean you starve yourself by just eating celery and jogging on the treadmill for 6 hours a day.
Not only do we want to burn body fat, we want to emphasize lean muscle this week.
So an all out, how low can you go, drastic calorie reduction is NOT your priority this week.
So to do this safely and improve your look…
Here are 3 ways to lose “weight” this week:
And I’m using quotes around “weight” because, yes you may lose 1-2 lbs of fat this week, but the reason you’ll be feeling lighter and tighter, is because of shedding the water weight.
What I mean by this is simple.
Eliminate all processed food.
This shouldn’t be that challenging, because as a Live Leaner, we tend to only eat processed foods during our well earned cheat meal.
But for this week only, cheat meals are out.
And if you’re not clear on what processed foods are, if it comes in a box, with ingredients you can’t pronounce, it’s not going in your temple this week.
All the foods you will be eating this week will come from the outer aisles of the grocery store. I’m talking about lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, healthy oils, vinegars, and fibrous vegetables.
To stay compliant to this, 99.9% of you will need a meal plan to follow.
Check out our LiveLean20Diet.com system and follow that meal plan to ensure you’re staying compliant to this strategy.
When it comes to your carbohydrates this week, focus only on fibrous vegetables, especially the ones I call water flushing vegetables like asparagus, spinach, and cucumber.
A lot of people don’t know this, but for every gram of carbohydrate you consume, your body stores 3 grams of water under your skin.
This stored water is why you may feel puffy and flabby at times.
So eat more of these water flushing vegetables to help get rid of that stored water, so you can feel lighter and tighter.
And yes, fruit is ok in moderation, but keep it to after your workouts, and try sticking to berries as they’re low glycemic and won’t bloat you.
Remember when we were talking about flushing out that stored water?
I’m about to blow your mind.
By drinking MORE water, it’ll actually help you flush MORE stored water.
Yep, drink more water, flush more water out from under your skin.
Sure you’ll be going to the bathroom more, but it’ll give you a chance to check out your paper thin skin in the mirror and take an ab selfie.
Aim to drink at least, ½ your bodyweight in pounds in ounces of water.
For example, if you weigh 180 pounds.
Drink at least 90 ounces (or 2.6 liters) of water throughout the day.
Get your water jug and keep it filled so you can keep track.
Welcome to the world of 2 a days.
For the next 7 days, I want you hitting the gym with maximum intensity.
That means effort over duration.
We’re focusing on creating as much “Afterburn” as possible to destroy as many calories throughout the day even while you sleep.
In the morning, I want you hitting your sprints.
This means HIIT training.
15-20 minutes of intervals in the morning.
Check out my LiveLeanSprint.com program for exact workouts to shred down faster.
Then in the evening, you hit the gym for an Afterburn style resistance training workout.
Focus on total body, compound exercises like squats, deadlifts, presses, and pull ups.
These metabolic style workouts will not only shred you down, but they’ll also bring out max definition with your muscles.
The workouts found in my LiveLeanAfterburn.com program show you exactly what to do and are perfect for this.
Much better than 3 hours on the boring ass treadmill.
Remember, you’ll be pushing your body to the limits this week, but it’s only short-term.
To get the results faster, you have to put the pedal to the floor this week.
After that, get back to the sustainable lifestyle habits like we talk about every week here on Live Lean TV.
So I hope you loved the tips in this episode, be sure to share this video with your friends, and in the comments, let me know your favorite tips for faster results.
