I hear carrot juice slows the metabolism.

Almonds have 22g of carbs for 100g, not the best nut for low carb.

Pecans are a better choice.

A really bad idea. Quick weight loss like that will cause a rebound effect, not to mention other issues. Now, if you are looking for sensible long term weight loss I could make a recommendation, but that's not what you asked for.

True! You'll kill your metabolism after a while doing this.

I will echo what others have said about a fast-weight loss plan - it's stupid. You'll lose mostly water weight and maybe a couple of LBs if you're lucky and when you resume your regular diet you'll gain back 3x as much. I get it... I complete and often times need to lean out quickly for the stage. It's not healthy and it's not sustainable.

There are no such things as fat burners or supplements that actually work. All you're doing is creating expensive pee by taking them.

It goes against all my better judgment as a licensed nutritionist but the only way to lose 10 LBs in a few weeks is to restrict your caloric intake, and I mean restrict hard. Create a calorie deficit of 500-800 calories per day either through exercise or fasting. The weight will come off.

False.

Impossible. It's more likely that you've dehydrated yourself and that's 2 LBs of water weight.
Also - how did you measure this?

There is no actual proven scientific evidence for or against a fasted workout causing anything you said. Please do the research.

Thanks everyone I burned 2 lbs after a 1 hr jog so far. I heard juicing has lots of sugars and isn't too healthy.


No you did not. There's 3,500 calories per lb of body fat. Ergo, you did NOT burn 3,500 calories in only one hour of jogging. What you did was sweat out two pounds of water weight.

Ignore the scale and use a measuring tape. Measurements are a substantially better gauge for weight loss than a scale is. As if you "losing" 2 lbs after a one hour jog doesn't illustrate that well enough.

Not only have I observed this in conditioning camps, the university of Surrey pretty much proved woman burn fat faster eating before workouts, this is because of the biomechanical differences of Male and female bodies and what is stored and reserved.

This isn't necessarily true. What the body burns in these deficits is directly related to input chemicals, lipids etc...while any caloric deficit will loose some weight the specific diet will decide how much fat vs muscle etc, also water retention is very diet based. Salty diets for instance hold excess water.

You may be correct assuming your research is science based and legitimate... not just found on some random health and wellness BS site
What I mean to say, is that people are under the impression that by doing fasted cardio they'll lose a bunch of weight. What they don't realize is that they can lose a bunch of weight doing NO cardio or exercise at all. The difference in the amount of fat actually burned through fasted cardio vs. non-fasted cardio is so minimal it's not even worth the effort! What I recommend to my clients? If you're absolutely starving or lacking the energy to get through your workout - then fuel yourself prior to your workout, being careful to eat accordingly. In other words, if you're going to run you obviously don't want a bunch of heavy, fat laden foods bouncing around in your belly lol! On the flip side, if you feel better fasting before a work out, like I do, then go for it. I never recommend working out as a weight loss method but more as a bonus to a proper weight loss nutrition plan. Just like I never recommend lifting weights to build muscle but I do recommend lifting weights to gain strength, which in turn will build the muscle.

My point of view is more from performance arhletes. So it may not apply as readily to people not active. Workout and diet are hand and hand for health for non active occupations. Strength comes from body weight exercise, power plyometrics, shape from lifting weights, conditioning from cardio/ interval tabata training.

This is how performance athletics sees it. Diet is 1st. From output to recovery it lays the foundation. Garbage in garbage out. One thing we know far intake doesn't equal body fat. Sugar hower does. There is quite a bit of genetics involved which is why modern professional athletes have bloodwork done for their conditioning diets and training.

What you shouldn't do is what is old timers in college wrestling and combat sports do to cut weight and drop 10 lbs of water in 24 hrs. I probably have kidney stones from those 15 years of my life.

I was 214.5 when I started. Now i am at 208. I need to lose 8.5 lbs by the end of the 31st day of October. I've lost 4 lbs in one day. I think it should be easy for me to lose weight since my usual weight is 180 I just been lazy and fast fooding a lot brought me all the way up to 225 the heaviest I've been ever.

Again, you didn't lose body fat, you lost sweat. And urine, and feces. Any calories burned were very minor compared to the weight lost via normal waste shedding. There's your 4 lbs of weight loss. You did not burn 14,000 calories in a single day, man. It's physically impossible. Even Olympic athletes don't burn off that much in a day.

If you can't grasp this, maybe weight loss isn't something you should be dabbling with right now?

Losing water weight is in fact losing body weight. Bloating from diet is adds to weight. The liver also builds fat against terrible diets..as well as various inflammations and water retention from allergenic reactions or bad diets.

100% agree with not doing the old school cut and bulk thing. That's just silly and out-dated.
I don't agree with your point of view on sugars, but we can agree to disagree. Being a professional athlete myself I have to say everything absolutely starts with food! Yes, for the average Joe who just wants to lose weight, cut your calories and do some exercise.... In/Out, that's it!

we pretty much agree. I would have to expand on sugar to explain. Particularly the selective use of carbs for workloads and not cutting out fats from whole foods being of benefit to athletes and people I'm general. As a rule generally it's good to be conscious of processed carbs if you aren't creating an output of energy. Meaning breads etc..The body does not burn fat the same on all diets and health levels. It really isn't quite as simple as calories in and out, and performance athletics where people are shaving inches off has shown a more complex chemistry that follows genetics.

Keto diets for regular people are extreme. It is worth the experiment if you have a medical condition they may benefit. For the rest of society it's probably a bad idea. As a performance athlete maybe it works for your body but most likely you keep to count carbs vs output.

Recovery is interesting. A whole other ball game to consider for performance athletes. Thatining at a 7/10 vs 10/10 and taking a day off etc...this applies to the common folks too. Do a 7/10 effort every day and you will do more work than 3 days of 10/10. With skilled work this makes a huge difference. Learned that the hard way.

Thinking in general paleo terms for your regular staples subsidized with the real world is probably a good way to get people to eat better. Or the no label diet don't eat anything with a label.

I follow CRON. Always have always will.
I think the other plans are garbage for the everyday person. Prepping for a contest/show? whole different ballgame.
