"How To Lose Weight Fast"

"Nobody, At Any Level, Should Be Allowed To Have
 Anything To Do With Healthy Weight Loss Until They 
Have Read This Page Seven Times"

Scientifically proven evidence showing you how to lose weight fast by simply consuming 4 simple ingredients.

>>> Proven to boost your metabolism and start melting the fat immediately.
>>>Real-world calorie burning methods — no goofy techniques.
>>> No undesirable side effects
>>>”Substantial” changes in body weight
>>>Reduces Your appetite for foods
>>> Naturally “exercise” your metabolism without actually exercising.

    Seriously, no exercise is required to lose weight using this method – unless you want to burn MORE FAT OFF FASTER!

Everyone’s Talking About The Same Thing.

“Slim down”, “lean up”, “drop a few pounds” –whichever words you use to talk about losing weight, you’re ultimately describing the same thing: reducing body fat.

Your body can be divided into two tissue compartments: fat mass and lean mass. Fat mass includes body fat, also known as adipose tissue. Lean mass includes skeletal muscle.

Few of us want to lose muscle when we lose weight. If anything, we’re in a constant struggle to hold on to it as we age.
Body fat, in contrast, is something we strive to get rid of.

Besides affecting how you look in a swimsuit and your level of comfort in front of cameras, body fat impacts your so-called “metabolic health” and, in turn, your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases.

How to lose weight fast!

>>>>>Imagine that you’re standing around at work or seated in a classroom taking notes. Or, maybe you’re driving to your child’s first t-ball game of the season. 

What you’re NOT doing is sweating or gasping for air. 

Yet your metabolism is “exercising”: It’s burning more calories than it normally does at rest, and that means more fat loss. 

How many more calories is it burning? By the start of the next day, it will be as many as an athlete might burn by running at over 9 miles per hour on a treadmill for nearly 10 minutes straight (~19 calories per minute). 

And it's all because of one ingredient tucked inside a natural product that’s available from any supermarket and is said to be second only to water in terms of its worldwide consumption1.

Here’s another supermarket wonder. This naturally-occurring amino acid has the potential to reduce your caloric intake by as much as 8%. In one study2, subjects who took it ate almost 100 fewer calories.

No undesirable side effects.

It simply reduced their appetite for food. Needless to say, avoiding overeating is a critical component of losing body fat and the one many of us find the most difficult to accomplish.

Let’s add a third to the mix. When subjects took a single dose of this popular ingredient, their calorie-burning rate was boosted by as much as 4% for the next two and a half hours, a change that could lead to “substantial” changes in body weight, according to the scientists who conducted the study3.

This May Be The Most Important Secret.

Perhaps the most important secret to losing body fat is “exercising” your metabolism. Physical activities like walking, lifting weights, swimming and the like can push your metabolism to work harder and thereby burn more calories.

And increasing your calorie-burning rate (a.k.a. metabolic rate) is the first step towards achieving negative fat balance, a technical term for the state of affairs in which your body is burning more fat than it’s storing.

No matter how hard you work out or how healthy you eat, if you’re not in negative fat balance, then you’re not losing body fat.

Of course, at some point during the day most of us have to stop exercising in the conventional sense of the word and make a living. The moment you do that (or consume a meal), your calorie-burning rate plummets and it becomes far more difficult to achieve negative fat balance.

This presents a problem: Similar to how you gain body fat when you remain in positive fat balance for a long period of time, losing fat requires that you remain in negative fat balance for a long period of time.  

For most mortals, working out all day isn’t an option.

Fortunately, there are natural products capable of keeping your metabolism “exercising” at rest, thereby elevating your calorie-burning rate and making it easier to achieve negative fat balance.

Four of the most studied of these products are coffee, hot red pepper, cinnamon and green tea. We’ve all passed by them in the supermarket.

Few of us, however, are aware of the metabolic properties displayed by particular ingredients found inside each, and how these properties may help you simplify the process of losing body fat. Below is just a small sample of what human studies (no furry animals) have reported:

•    A single 50-mg dose of caffeine, equivalent to a little over ½ a cup of coffee, was found to increase the calorie-burning rate of healthy male subjects by 6%2.*
•    Women given a meal containing capsaicin, the compound responsible for the painful experience of eating hot red pepper, experienced an increase in calorie-burning rate of 10% after the meal4.*
•    Pre-diabetic subjects given a cinnamon extract reduced their body fat by 0.7% and increased their lean mass by 1.1%. No such changes were observed in subjects receiving a placebo5.*
•    Men and women given a green tea extract increased their calorie-burning rate by 3.5%6.*
•    Green tea: The results of this study are more impressive. Subjects who took the extract received a daily dose equivalent to 3-4 cups of brewed green tea8.

Their calorie-burning rate rose by 3.5%, not just for an hour or two, but for twenty-four hours.*

This meant they burned anywhere from 63.5-200 additional Calories a day (average 78.3 Calories).

Burning Calories In The “Real World”

A considerable amount of scientific research suggests that key ingredients in coffee (caffeine), hot red pepper (capsaicin), cinnamon (polyphenols) and green tea (catechins) have a modest ability to increase your calorie-burning rate or in some other way assist with weight loss and protection against obesity.*

  Here are a couple of examples.

As scientists who have studied capsaicin point out, most Westerners would find it very difficult if not impossible to get enough of his compound from the diet (e.g. as by adding hot red pepper to meals) to achieve a fat-reducing effect9. It’s just too painful.
Studies on cinnamon, for example, have used the equivalent of anywhere from 1-10 g of cinnamon powder, quantities not ordinarily used in food. While it may be possible to get enough cinnamon from the diet to lose body fat, USDA scientist Dr. Richard Anderson (Ph.D.) explains that cinnamon obtained this way may be “inactivated” by polyphenol-binding proteins secreted by your salivary glands10.

Others, like Dr. Andrew Blannin (Ph.D.) think that it would be extremely hard to consume enough cinnamon to produce improvements in insulin sensitivity without taking supplements11.*

In light of everything we’ve discussed, it could be argued that the most sensible approach is to take just enough of each ingredient to produce a small calorie-burning effect so that the overall effect is that much greater.

Unfortunately, based on studies like those referred to here, putting such a “team approach” into practice by relying on the diet only could amount to drinking 3-4 cups of green tea, adding hot red peppers to several meals and swallowing 10 g of cinnamon, all followed by at least one, if not 2, 3, 4 or more, cups of black coffee.

If that doesn’t sound delicious, then we don’t know what does. There’s got to be a simpler way.

The increase in fat-burning (subjects burned more calories from fat) associated with tyrosine ingestion was statistically significant, on the other hand, albeit small.]

    how long should I take prograde metabolism?  And if I stop take it, will all body fat come back, even if I do exercise?
    thank you

    You can take it as long as necessary to lose the amount of weight you want to lose. If you continue with healthy eating habits and proper exercise your fat will not come back even after taking Metabolism.
