Reverse Dieting 101: How to Increase Your Metabolism & Eat More Food


Do you need help to stick to your healthy eating plan long enough to lose weight? Or, if you're like me, you feel like you need a little wiggle room in your diet to enjoy some of your favorite foods occasionally without worrying about weight gain? Diet burnout is real, and this reverse dieting technique can help.

Reverse dieting shows you how to eat more of the foods you love without gaining weight. There are a few specific things you need to do to be successful when it comes to preventing weight gain on your not-so-healthy eating days, starting with managing blood sugar levels, which is key to blocking weight gain and cravings, making it easier to control your hunger, leading to eating less without trying.

You can incorporate this technique for 48 hours or four days. It's up to you. Your body will let you know how many days you need to eat clean and how many you can “UPZIG” or increase calories before you start gaining weight.

Reverse Dieting: What is It?

A reverse diet is when you increase calories after prolonged caloric restriction. 

If you suddenly increase your calories after dieting without incorporating a reverse dieting approach or taking specific precautionary measures, your body will store the excess calories as fat and fluid retention reactively in an attempt to hold onto as much energy (excess calories) as possible to protect itself.

Why Reverse Diet?

  • You don't want to gain weight.
  • You want to maintain your weight loss / current weight while eating or including more food in your diet.
  • You want to keep your metabolism boosted and working as efficiently as possible.
  • You're tired of fighting with food and feeling hungry all the time and need a mental break.
  • Your weight loss has stalled, and you need to saturate your body with nutrients to repair your metabolism.
  • You need some wiggle room with your eating for vacations, holidays, eating out, etc.

How We Suggest Doing It

  1. Weigh yourself before you start to monitor how your body reacts when adding food. You can also take a 'before' photo for a comprehensive method. Not all weight gain is bad. Gaining lean muscle improves how you look in the mirror. Taking photos allows you to compare.
  2. Continue to replace two meals (your choice of which ones) with a LynFit Natural Whey Protein Shake to boost metabolism 25% and keep cortisol, ghrelin (hunger-stimulating hormones), and blood sugar in check. 
  3. Do not stop taking Keto Carb Edge, Cutting Edge, or Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore. Your body needs them now more than ever. They manage blood sugar and prevent the formation of new fat cells and cholesterol build-up that slows your metabolic rate. The natural botanicals and fiber blend of white kidney bean and raspberry ketones act as a safety net protecting you by blocking 65% of the unwanted carbs, sugars, and fats from being absorbed naturally without gastric distress for maximum strength blood sugar control.
  4. Increase your calories in the form of carbohydrates (preferably good carbs), aiming to increase 100+ calories to recondition your metabolism and avoid over-consuming, which leads to weight gain. Clean carbs are ideal, but what's important is the pre-planned, controlled caloric increase, not perfection. 
  5. Eat at this level for a few days or up to about two weeks. Access your progress by weighing yourself again or taking another photo, or how you look in the mirror.
  6. If your weight and body fat remain unchanged, slowly increase by another 100 calories for the next two weeks.
  7. Continue this process until you have reached a level of food consumption that makes you happy and satisfied, your weight stabilizes, and your metabolic markers remain healthy. What are metabolic markers? Blood sugar (including A1C), cholesterol, and triglycerides. Cortisol and hunger hormones count too.

Your main goal should always be to maintain a healthy weight/waist loss, which means continuing to include the healthier habits that helped you lose weight, including the nutritional supplements you used to lose weight and improve your health.

At LynFit Nutrition®, we build faster metabolisms naturally by nourishing the body with the proper amount of the specific nutrients it needs to function optimally. Every nutritional supplement we make is made of clean, pure, potent natural ingredients that will not block fat-burning or weight loss, like typical vitamins, minerals, collagens, green powders, protein powders, or gummies.

Each LynFit supplement works when used by itself. However, stacking them provides advanced optimal nutrition, multiplying the results, making it easier to reach your goals healthfully. Choose what's best for you, and if you're new to using professional-strength quality supplements, start slow and add additional nutritional supplements when and as needed.

We strongly suggest that you STOP taking all other nutritional supplements approximately three days prior to taking LynFit supplements to avoid overdosing on certain nutrients by taking too many at once. Our products are perfectly balanced to include the precise nutrients in the specific amounts your body needs, which is also the secret to our success.
