Understanding Fast Weight Loss: Exercise or Diet First?
Article by Aaron Patterson
If you’re looking for fast weight loss through exercise, you may not find it. While incorporating exercise into your lifestyle is a great way to lose weight and keep it off over the long term, it takes time for exercise to change your body in the ways that stimulate fat loss. Over time, exercise will increase your muscle mass and will speed up your metabolism-both ways to help you lose weight, but not immediate changes.
Diet changes can actually cause the metabolism to change more rapidly. As a matter of instinct, the body usually reacts quickly to changes in the amount of food you consume, and changes your metabolism. This reaction was designed by evolution to insure that when our ancestors couldn’t find food, the body would conserve energy so that they didn’t starve. On the other hand, when we found food and ate it quickly, the body would start burning calories faster to give us more energy to go back out and hunt again!
In modern times, most of us aren’t facing food shortage problems. But we can use this evolutionary mechanism to accelerate our weight loss faster than almost any other method. A scientifically designed technique called calorie cycling is the most effective way to do it, by varying the sizes of the meals you eat. You don’t have to restrict yourself to a bunch of foods you don’t like to accomplish it, either-for the most part, the same foods you eat every day can be incorporated into a calorie cycling diet.
The best calorie cycling solution on the market is the FatLoss4Idiots diet. FatLoss4Idiots allows you to create custom meal plans based on the foods you like, and structures your meals around calorie cycling principles so that they cause you to lose weight. I recently posted a FatLoss4Idiots review to my dieting advice Web site and the response has been phenomenal. People are losing 9 pounds in 11 days as the program advertises, or more! FatLoss4Idiots is worth taking a look at for anyone whose goal is fast weight loss-exercise or no.
