The majority of both male and female “dieters” believe that to lose weight they need to trim back on their favourite foods and hit the gym at least every other day.
Although this works for a small percentage of health conscious dedicated individuals for us mere mortals weight loss seems to be a bit trickier.
Many people who try the latest diets experience little to no results because it takes a saint to follow the strict guidelines or at least a personal trainer and a Hollywood lifestyle.
There is goods news though for those of us who can’t just stop eating and aren’t willing to turn into gym freaks.
The Great Hollywood Secret
The latest “reveal” by a top celebrity trainer indicates that there is actually an easier way to achieve your weight loss goals that does not involve starving yourself on celery sticks or living at the gym.
It seems celebrities have known this little secret for years and it is only now that we are hearing about it.
What is this juicy celebrity weight loss secret?
Well, it’s all about working out which foods you should avoid based on your body type and how specific foods change their relationship to you and your body as you age.
It seems that some foods cause certain body types to gain weight while those same foods actually help other body types to burn fat.
It is no wonder some people achieve amazing results on certain diets while others actually gain weight.
Generic Diets Do Not Work
This is why following a generic diet or weight loss program, or even using a weight loss app rarely works for the majority of people.
Their body’s simply cannot handle the food they are eating in an efficient way and thus they fail to lose weight, get frustrated or even gain more weight.
However, when you identify the foods that encourage your body to store fat and reduce your consumption of them while at the same time identifying those foods that cause you to burn fat, losing body fat and lowering your weight becomes child’s play.
Eating Chocolate to Lose Weight
Are you aware that at certain times during a weight loss regime it is actually beneficial to chomp down some fatty, high carb yummy treats?Have you ever been on a weight loss program, diet or exercise program and reached a plateau? No matter what you did you just couldn’t lose any more weight even though you may have stopped eating altogether?
Do you know that at these times eating a high calorie, high carb fat-filled tasty treat will actually kick your metabolism into overdrive so you start burning fat again at an accelerated rate?
This is an established scientific fact that you can verify in your own life by trying it.
You can thank me later.
What is the Quickest Way to Lose Weight?
Just as everyone on Earth has a unique personality with unique interests and tastes not everyone has the same body type or deals with nutrition and calorie intake in the same way.
I mean it stands to reason that if you do not have the same outer body type as your skinny neighbor with the chicken neck and pencil physique then you will not have the same internal ways of dealing with the food you consume.
This is one of the major reasons for the failure experienced by people who follow generic diets; you know those diets that promise easy ways to lose weight by cutting carbs, eliminating fat, doing specific exercises or by drinking specific concoctions made from less than delectable ingredients.
Fad Diets Don’t Work
Fad diets do not work because they are generic in nature.
You need a customized weight loss plan based on your specific age and your personal body type.
Fast Diets that Work are Based on Body Type & Age
According to celebrity trainer Kyle Leon generic weight loss plans are doomed to failure because each of us need a customized approach to diet and exercise.
We have already established that there are people who actually spend hours at the gym or starve themselves but find that they put on weight instead of losing it simply because they are eating the wrong types of foods for their body type.
But this is only half the story.
You also need to change how you eat dependent on your age.
So the real key to losing weight, while still being able to eat decent size meals, lies in identifying your specific body type and also modifying how you eat certain food stuffs based on your age.
I am sure you have already heard of the 3 basic body types; Endomorph, Mesomorph and Ectomorph. But did you realise that these body types not only look different but also process food differently?
Although men and women are quite clearly different in many respects they actually gain and lose weight in similar ways based on the body type group they belong to rather than their sex.
The way a person processes protein, carbohydrates and how that person burns calories greatly depends on their body type.
Not all body types respond well to excess exercise, starvation diets or even low fat eating.
In fact people who belong to certain body types will find that they actually put on weight when they reduce their calorie intake!
Does any of this sound familiar?
For example, did you know that if you are a mesomorph then you it is good for you to eat larger quantities of carbs and fat than other body types as long as you get a moderate amount of exercise everyday because your body type thrives on energy-giving foods?
Effects of Age
Age has a huge affect on how your body handles certain food types. Your age determines, to a large extent, whether these food types are stored as fat, burned as energy or eliminated as waste.
One of the biggest and quickest ways to lose weight in the fastest possible way, regardless of age or body type, is to reduce the amount of carbs you are eating and replace them with protein and fiber.
As you age your body finds it harder to process complicated carbohydrates and instead stores them as fat.
Many people witness this phenomenon as they get older and put it down to a slowing of their metabolism and believe that they must eat less food or strive to eliminate fat from their diet. However, this is not the case.
By simply reducing the amount high carb foods you eat and replacing those food stuffs with food high in protein or fiber (or high in both) you can actually eat more and still lose weight.
Are There Really Easy Ways to Lose Weight?
The short answer is no.
The long answer is a little more complicated.
Let’s face face it guys and gals if there where a pill, potion or magic formula that could make you shed excess fat with no effort at all the diet industry would squash it quicker than the human eye (Kong Kong Fuey reference for those that remember him).
The diet and weight loss industry make billions of dollars every year by keeping people fat. They don;t want you to be slim. Slim people don’t buy weight loss products!
You do need to put in some effort if you want to reach your weight loss goals even if that just involves changing the foods stuff that you eat. But be clear, you need to do something there is no such thing as a magic weight loss bullet!
However, if you change your eating habits and start eating for your age and body type then you can continue enjoying food without having to join a gym or cut down excessively on your portion sizes and without having to keep the diet industry in profit.
