Course Description

This course is for those who are interested in making their weight loss goals a reality but have no idea where to begin.

If you need to lose weight, and don't have any experience of doing this challenging task, you'll learn by understanding the fundamental concepts of fat loss, and then putting together the only plan you'll need to lose fat in the easy-to-follow lessons in this course.

Create A Plan, Set A Due Date, No Exercise Is Necessary

  • Learn The Why Behind Fat Loss Success Stories
  • Set Up A Comprehensive Plan You Can Follow
  • Make Fat Loss Easy By Creating Habits

Weight Loss Will Change Your Life Forever

You'll jump right into this course by learning the fat fundamentals, bonus tricks to attack fat, and get your fat burning to fall off before you know it.

Too many people make the mistake of jumping into weight loss expecting that they can rough through on will power alone. There's a reason why most diets are broken at night.

In this course you'll learn methods to leverage your body and your mind to work for you. If your body could take more calories to metabolize and digest a food, why would you eat that food?

Contents and Overview

After a brief introduction to energy's important role in fat loss, you'll learn what makes a good calorie so you can choose the right food to eat to keep you full while losing fat at the same time.

You'll then tackle energy management by means of freestlying, or skeleton planning. You'll get to know the value of using calories and kinds of calories, as well as how easy they are to work with.

Once your RMR and lifestyle energy are calculated, you'll add tricks used from the megabooster section to provide a strong parachute to your goal weight.

Example plans, and set up are spread throughout the course along with the choice to stick to a freestyle plan where you can choose to lose fat by understanding the fundamentals I will teach you.

I back up what I say with facts, studies, and results that have been gaining traction in the fitness community as fat loss needs become greater in the industry with more people desiring weight loss.

By the time you complete this course, you'll have gone from a complete novice on fat loss, energy, and their relationship to a results-based informed train on its track to a weight loss goal with a plan to keep them on track along with a habit creation schedule.

You'll be getting additional content as I continue to add to this course, and answer any questions that you may message me with, or post in the discussion section of this course.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for weight loss beginners that have no prior experience losing fat consistently according to their goals.
  • Unless you consider yourself an expert in fat loss, or have lost large amounts of fat over a relatively short period of time, this course is for you.

You require energy to stay alive. You use energy every day. Logically, you'd run out of energy at some point if it were not replenished. This is where food comes in. Get ready to change your mindset about food as I explain key concepts about nutrition you may never have heard before.

Where does the extra energy go? Or in other words, if I eat more calories than I use to live, plus the calories I use to do what I do every day, what happens? Get ready to learn how your body stores that before it starts storing those excess calories (energy) into fat.

If you want to feel great, and lose fat then this lecture is extremely important because it is a gamechanger.

Calories Aren't Created Equal

Eating 6 - 8 meals is a nuisance, and unrealistic for most people, and studies have shown that they don't effect the metabolism as much as popular media outlets rave that they do. Keep eating 3 meals a day with a smile on your face while I explain what eating schedules work.

If protein is the cornerstone to your diet, then water is the foundation.

Learn why the turn to water can be your biggest unfair advantage in the war against fat.

Just Add Water

Adding spices such as turmeric, and cayenne pepper to your diet can turn the theory of "eating to lose weight" into a reality as fast as lightning. Feel the heat, and bite the bullet as I explain a powerful mega booster that will knock your socks off.

The knowledge of the resting metabolic rate was one of the first pieces to the puzzle I learned to unlock the secret of easy fat loss. I am the kind of person that loves seeing the numbers, and predicting results and if you are too, then get ready to learn an extremely powerful tool for losing fat, and keeping track of your energy.

Resting Metabolic Rate

Resting metabolic rate only takes into account the how much calories you burn just for existing. However, unless you're in some extremely rare and unusual circumstance, you do things during the time you have each day. Learn to take this into account, and pile this up with your RMR to have a big picture look on your calorie expenditure.

How A Professor Lost Pounds Eating Twinkies

Any goal, and by extension, any diet plan begins with the end in mind. Planners start with the outcome first, and the rest then is filled out according to that desired outcome. I put outcomes into perspective, and begin the planning portion of this course in this lecture.

What Do You Want To Look Like?

The second step to any good plan is setting an end date, or a "due date" for whatever outcome you have chosen for yourself. It's imperative that you choose the right timing because an end date that is too soon can be extremely difficult, or virtually impossible while an end date that is too far away can leave you exhausted, bored, and can you see you fall off your plan.

Timing Is Essential

Essential to your goal, learn the fundamental concepts of desired pounds off into needed calories lost and discover how a for-sure diet is actually very simple.

Convert Pounds To Calories

No one has ever lost fat by making isolated decisions about each food choice and why every time they went to eat. Their diet would break within a couple weeks or less! Habits are what make extremely difficult things actually seem like a stroll in the park.

Why Do Habits Matter?

Habit creation is very difficult unless you're lucky and you were somehow born with great habits, and few bad habits. I've never met anyone so lucky. But you're in luck because once you simply hear of this simple concept, your thought on habit creation will change. Learn why habit creation is simple, and use this new skill to implement the plan you created to lose fat.
