Top 3 key points?
I'm sure as it is a goal for many, a thread with everyone's 2-3 top tips would be awesome.
Obviously everyones body is different, just interesting to hear everyones pov, instead of having to search 'x' amount of questions
I'm sure it has been questioned before, hack away
Won't work for everyone, and there's a trend of stalled results or reduced performance after the first six weeks or so, but if you want fast results, that seems to work pretty well for most people.
Right now I am doing the following:
I'm on day 2, but I already feel a bit leaner. I'm pretty sure this regime is optimal for fat loss in the shortest amount of time.
In order of importance
Low Carb, Grain Eliminated Diet (Doesn't have to be fully paleo, but you can't go wrong there)
Reduce Stress (this includes getting proper sleep, no chronic cardio, go for long relaxing walks in the woods, anything that raises cortosol for extended periods is bad)
High Intensity Interval Training (not the Crossfit way where you doing something everyday. Maybe 1 or 2 times a week do some sprints, lift some heavy weights)
1.Low ultra sensitive CRP
2.Low cortisol level
3.Brain and Heart exercise.........
Brain function makes up close to 20% of RMR. Next is the heart, which is beating all the time and accounts for another 15-20%. The liver, which also functions at rest, contributes another 15-20%. Then you have the kidneys and lungs and other tissues, so what remains is muscle, contributing only 20-25% of total resting metabolism. Lifting heavy weights gets you many things but lean is not one of them.
