Can You Lose Belly Fat On The Keto Diet?
In this week's Metabolic News, I share my expertise on fat loss on the keto diet and my humble opinion on these other coronavirus questions. I'll also follow up with answering a couple more questions in my next Metabolic News as well.
If you're like me, and you're tired of getting coronavirus content in your email mailbox, I totally get it. But I also owe it to all of you who have questions to give my take on the research, both as a scientist and from a faith perspective.
The questions have been pouring in, especially when it comes to losing weight and burning fat during this lockdown time. Information is coming out at a rapid pace, and there are some wild claims and recommendations, like take elderberry gummies... seriously? That's the shammy wow ad for today.
Lots of new research is my idea of a great day, so I've been loving lockdown. It allows me time to really submerge myself. Thanks to all the research, we'll be able to focus on something else soon, so keep the faith.
Here are a few questions I'll address today...
“Can you burn off stubborn body fat on the classic keto diet?”
Yes and no. The classic keto diet is too high in fat for most people, especially if you're older than age 30 with a slowing metabolism, and you've been more than 10 pounds overweight, which signifies metabolic changes have occurred. These changes need to be addressed before you lose weight and burn off that stubborn body fat.
The classic higher protein, lower carb methods are too high in fat (sadly, the wrong kind of fat, the saturated kind that’s not good for you), and while reducing bad carbs is always a good thing, eliminating leafy greens is never a healthy move.
Keto works best (in fact, it works 100% of the time) when it’s clean enough. At that point, your body will be primed to burn off excess stored body fat. The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan IS the cleanest form of a keto diet that’s geared for weight loss. I love this and suggest it to my clients because it's the healthiest, and it works 100% every time, as long as you're committed and follow it. Which leads me to my next answer... No, not all keto diets are for weight loss or fat burning.
"Which supplements should I take if I'm trying to lose weight?"
I made that easy for you by putting together the Metabolic Boosting Lose 1 Pound Per Day System for you. It's expertly combined and designed to get your body to burn off even the most stubborn body fat, including belly fat.
You can piece together your own system, but why would you when you can have it done for you, and save money buying it in the System? This is where most people go wrong -- they pick and choose the aspects of weight loss they want to do and avoid the ones they don’t. That's always a diet deal-breaker, so if you're trying to lose weight and you're struggling, this metabolic boosting system is for you. It's designed for maximum weight loss and fat burning results, has a metabolic boosting cleanse and detox built-in to make it easy, and has built-in hunger and changing support to help you navigate these tough times in lockdown.
The Metabolic Meal Plan comes with it and is always a free download for everyone. It tells you what to eat, what not to eat, how much to eat, when to eat, when not to eat, and how much and when to take your supplements. Take screenshots and save it to your phone so you're never without. Print it out so you can create your online shopping lists from it. You'll also want to download the Smoothie and Gourmet Coffee Guide, so you'll know how to prepare the most delicious and nutritious smoothies you've ever had.
Take advantage of this time to read up on what you need to do, and weigh yourself before you begin, so you can track your progress, which will keep you motivated. Commit 100% to the plan, follow it 110%, especially during the first week. Studies show that people who commit 100% and follow the plan the first week, lose the most weight and keep it off. Commit to it on day 1, day 2, day 3, and the next thing you know, you're 100% on plan, the weight is falling off, and your belly begins to vanish! Once you get some momentum, you can continue to build off of it from there.
"Do I need to take supplements when I’m losing weight, and will they protect my health?"
Yes, and yes! Protecting our health is more important than ever before, and people are beginning to realize this now. Not only that, in addition to nourishing our body and protecting health, the smart use of safe, metabolic boosting supplements can also make losing weight faster, easier, and prevent metabolic slowdown.
Most of us do our best to eat as healthy as possible, but sometimes like this lockdown, stressful time, or when we eat out or visit friends, most of us find ourselves in situations where we eat too much fat. That's where LynFit Cutting Edge comes in and is ready to go to work.
Cutting Edge safely and effectively:
- Helps burn off stored body fat (including stubborn belly fat )
- Helps reduce elevated cholesterol and triglycerides
- Supports healthy cholesterol levels
- Blocks the formation of new fat cells (important during the lockdown)
- Promotes liver detoxification and cleansing, which can cure fatty liver issues that can result from a high fat keto (not the kind I recommend, for this very reason, but people still think chicken and turkey breast is fat-free, not realizing it has saturated fat)
Cutting Edge also contains L-Carnitine, which makes sure your stored body fat gets burned off by transporting it to the fat-burning furnace cells. The precision dosages of vitamins and nutrients in Cutting Edge are ten times more effective and essential for a fully functioning metabolism and for getting rid of stubborn body fat, especially in the stomach area, hips, thighs, as well as the back of the arms.
The main function of Cutting Edge and this very specific combination of nutrients is to convince your body to break down and metabolize stored fat, prevent new fat cell formation, and teach your body how to use the fat you have stored as fuel versus storing it.
Many people don't realize that by approaching weight loss from a fat-burning first approach by lowering dietary fat to less than 20 grams per day, and also swapping out processed carbs like pasta, rice, potatoes, and bread for thermogenic vegetables instead, makes losing weight faster and easier, and is guaranteed!
It also helps reduce hunger and cravings, once your body begins to notice that you aren’t overfeeding it anymore. At that point, it goes for the stored fat, if it has the nutrients found in Cutting Edge present (nutrients are metabolic fuel) to help assist by transporting the fat where it needs to go to be burned off. Yes, that is keto, but a healthy version. Don't let that word scare you if you're following the Metabolic Meal Plan because keto is nothing but a fancy term for fat loss state.
This plan makes sure your body stays nourished and gets what it needs to keep your metabolism fully functioning, thanks to the smart use of safe, metabolic boosting supplements. That's why I say YES, YES, YES to taking supplements when trying to lose weight. My answer is especially true if you've been or are more than 10 pounds overweight, you have belly fat, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, or you're hypothyroid. These supplements can and will help you!
They are the same kind of nutrients you take in multivitamins but put together in a way that makes them more efficient. Nutrients, including vitamin c, zinc, and all of the other daily essentials your body needs to stay healthy and help you lose that weight that's been slowing you down and affecting your health.
NOTE: If you have issues with stimulants, these supplements are safe for you; however, when our nutrient levels are depleted, and we begin to restore their levels, some people (the anxious and overstressed) may feel naturally energized. If you're like this (I am), start slower by using (1) Accelerator Advanced in the morning, then add (1) Cutting Edge at lunch, and slowly build-up to the levels you feel safe at. If you're super-stressed, even the slightest increase in healthy nutrients can affect sleep. Make sure to take them early enough (6-7 hours before bedtime) and STOP taking ALL other supplements, including your multivitamin, to avoid taking too much.
Cutting edge also contains thiamine (or vitamin b-1), which helps the body's cells convert carbohydrates into energy. The reason I suggest that you stop all other supplements is that most people don’t recognize this. We synergistically combine the nutrients to work better than the single-nutrient supplements to better metabolize fats, proteins, and carbs. It also helps balance blood sugar, which reduces hunger and cravings and is paramount when it comes to losing weight.
Fat loss isn't all the nutrients in Cutting Edge can do for you. Its health benefits are many, and each nutrient plays a key role in reducing bloat and swelling, tingling and burning sensations in the hands and feet caused by nerves, and also improving muscle tone, which includes heart muscle, improving heart function.
In short, Cutting Edge helps people with stubborn metabolisms lose weight and shed excess body fat fast! It's the best product on the market that's strong enough to be efficient, yet safe enough for the whole family while providing far too many health benefits to mention in a short blog article!
Stay tuned for my next article where I'll answer a couple more questions about living and eating healthy, and how it relates to the coronavirus.
