WEEK 11 Eat – Long term dieting

Key points:

  • Overall goal is to lose body fat and boost metabolism
  • You cannot diet forever or your metabolism will slow to a crawl and you will be unable to lose more body fat
  • At this point we have to switch approach:
    • Increase calories and go back towards maintenance
    • Continue with weight training 3-4 times per week
    • By doing this we aim to lose more fat or maintain current body fat percentage
  • This approach will boost metabolism for another fat loss phase
  • It’s important to stay in a metabolism boosting phase long enough for your metabolism to increase
  • The longer you stay in this phase, the better the next fat loss phase will be
