How To Lose 5 Pounds in 1 Week – Get The Free Diet Along With Exercises That Burn Fat

First of all let’s agree on one thing, losing 5 pounds in a week is not the same as losing 10 pounds in 2 weeks. If you go on a diet that is designed to make you lose 5 pounds in week you will lose water and muscle mass, only a minor part of the 5 pounds is fat (and that is what you really want to get rid of, right?).

The new calorie shifting diet is something else. It claims that it could make you lose up to 9 pounds in just 11 short days and you could go on this diet again if you eat normally for three days. It is not a diet where you exclude any of the important nutrients or food groups, and you don’t have to starve yourself.

We have all heard about those low-calorie diets that have worked wonders for so many other people, most often to a friend of a friend. The truth about low calorie diets is that once you make a major cutback on calories you will lose weight…for a couple of days. After those days your body adjusts its metabolism to fit the calorie intake. This means that you will be running on fumes. This is what is called tormenting yourself, you feel like crap, you get angry over nothing and so on. Still you don’t lose more than a couple of pounds in the first days! Of course if you were to eat 400 calories per day for 6 months you would see some difference. But I wouldn’t want to be your spouse during these months.

Let’s have a quick review of what t is we try to accomplish. To lose fat there are several important steps that needs to follow one another in order to take the fat from a fat cell into the cell of the muscles and burn it. Firstly, the fat cell have to release the fat (in form of fatty acids), secondly, the fat has to be transported to the target cell, thirdly the fat has to be absorbed into the muscle cell and burnt for fuel by the mitochondria (the power plant in the cell). We don’t need to be more specific than that.

Ok, now it is time to exercise! If you exercise you increase the energy consumption in the muscle cell (the mitochondrias scream for more). At the same time you increase you actual muscle mass, meaning that there are more mitochondria wanting to burn fat. Also in an exercised muscle there is a higher metabolism so once you start and are persistent in exercising your muscle will burn more fat to stay fit.
The three steps for fat to be used as fuels could also be targeted with a healthy diet. This will release more of the fat into your circulation and the more fat there is, the more will get absorbed by the muscles.

Now, in the calorie shifting diet the foods and nutrients is compiled to do just this. It releases more fat from your cell, and, if you drink like you should, the fatty acids are transported to the target cell with no problem and the diet makes the mitochondrias begging for more fat to burn. It really is as easy as that.

By the way, it is not just the muscles that burn fat, the liver is also an excellent target because it is able to burn fat for no cause. Imagine that, burning fat without a cause…This has to be targeted too, and of course it is. This is a part of the diet and this will make you burn fat even when you sleep.

The other organ that uses a lot of energy is the brain. The brain prefers carbohydrates (glucose) for energy, and under normal circumstances the carbohydrates are the fuel. The brain consumes up to a quarter pound of carbohydrates per day. If you lack the carbohydrates the brain will use ketones for fuel. The brain doesn’t like this and will not perform as well but hey, we want to lose weight right? This last part is a no-no to me, I want to be alert and feel good and that is why I stay away from low-carb diets like the Atkins diet.

Other organs like the kidneys, splen and so on uses almost no energy at all. But a healthy diet will keep those organs healthy and strong.

Jennifer Olsen was a master of failing at different diets. She understood that there were more to losing weight then just going on a diet. Today she has lost nearly 50 pounds with the calorie-shifting diet and meanwhile she has finished reading ‘Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle’ and she is implementing what she learned into daily activities.

She made a mini-site that gives examples of diets, complete fast weight loss diets and reviews of books that helped her stop living the unhealthy life and turning around into a more healthy life-style.
