Are you looking for a weight loss strategy that works for YOU? I have been “working on” losing weight for 30+ years and have been successful many times. Problem is, the success doesn't last as I always go back to old habits that allow the weight to come back over time…until now!
First things first, I am NOT a doctor, so I am only giving you my experience on a weight loss strategy that works for ME. I have developed it based on many years of testing and refining how I go about the fat burning journey with my particular body. In the video and paragraphs below, I give you exactly how I have lost the weight and kept it off!
Weight Loss Strategy That Works!
For me, weight loss has always had a direct correlation to carbohydrates and exercise. You see, I am a carbohydrate addict. My body has become addicted to simple carbohydrates due to the fact that I grew up on large amounts of carbs and took that addiction into adulthood. The following weight loss strategy encompasses the carbohydrate, exercise, and supplementation factors;
Carbohydrates: The carbohydrates, in my opinion, are the biggest factor in burning fat. There is a process in the body called Ketosis, which is the burning of fat in the body. When our bodies are burning fat efficiently, we drop, what is called, Ketones. When Ketones are present in urine, it means that we are burning fat. This only occurs when the body decides to burn fat rather than carbs or muscle.
What blocks the body from burning fat, is the presence of carbohydrates. When we eat too many carbs, our body uses those simple sugars to fuel the body and we never get to a fat burning stage. Therefore, one would think that if we limit carbs, that we would get into Ketosis and have the ability to burn that fat. The problem is, most people reduce their overall carb intake, but still eat carbs as part of ALL meals. What happens is that the body still uses the carbs to supply the energy.
What I started doing, about a year and a half ago, was ONLY having carbohydrates at night (having them in the morning would be better, but I like to have my “carrot” at the end of the day)!
My weight loss strategy, in terms of carbohydrates, is to have ONE meal that has my carbs. All day long, I eat protein through protein powder, eggs, cheese, meat, etc. What this does is push my body into burning fat as, by the time 5 pm rolls around, I am into Ketosis.
How to check for Ketosis? You can check if you are in Ketosis by going to Target and getting Ketone Strips. You urinate on them and it will tell you if Ketones are present.
Essentially, what I am doing is forcing my body into Ketosis by eliminating carbs during the day. Then, at dinner (and a little snack after), I eat my carbs! This, in my opinion, is a huge reason why I have been able to lose the weight AND keep it off because this is a lifestyle change as I plan on continuing to limit carbs for the rest of my life. I just don't have the metabolic rate to be able to eat carbs consistently at each meal!
Exercise: Secondly, EXERCISE! If you do not exercise, the chances of you losing the weight you want, is slim to none! I played college football, so have maintained a exercise regime that is one for a collegiate athlete. Thing is, I am no longer a college football player, but a 44 year old man! I have been doing cardio for 25 years the same way, 1 hour per day of cardio and each muscle group lifted, one time per week. Point being is; my body got used to what I was doing for so long and it was no longer effective.
In walks HOT YOGA! Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “Hot yoga! What?”. YES! It is, by far, the best workout I have ever had. It is about consistency and the sweat, and I can tell you, there is nothing more cleansing than getting all lathered up in a Hot Yoga session! Add on one session of TRX per week and, BOOM, we have a low impact, calorie burning, muscle building, exercise regime!
Regardless of whether you do Hot Yoga or something else, you need to be doing something! If you have bad joints, then go for a walk, but you have to increase the amount of calories burned in order to burn that nasty fat.
Weight Loss Supplementation: The third, and just as important, is supplementation. The two products that I use are; Termo Te and Te No Carb (both videos below). There are natural components, found on this earth, that may help with the burning of fat and ability to block carbohydrates from turning into fat. Both of these products are designed to possibly help in both areas. For me, these two products are a staple of my weight loss program.

You are probably wondering how much weight I have lost. Great question! From January of 2015 until now, I have lost around 70 pounds of fat and have put on around 20 pounds of muscle!
Again, this weight loss strategy is what has worked FOR ME. We are all built very differently, but if you have tried and tried and have been unable to keep the weight off, you may want to give this strategy a try. Don't forget to add in Termo Te and Te No Carb, from Fuxion Biotech, for that extra help.
