Although you’re training hard every day, following an exhausting program, lifting pounds and pounds of weights, spilling a sea of sweat with cardio, you still can’t seem to lose enough fat and gain sufficient muscle. The explanation is probably simple, and hidden in plain sight. You’re probably not eating healthy.
Heavy workouts might be crucial for gaining muscles, but they all come to naught, failing to provide the lean muscle you dream of, if you don’t back them up with a proper diet. Even though you work out hard every day for 1 to 2 hours, there are still 22 more hours of the day where you can ruin all that you’ve invested in the gym in just one moment of weakness.
It takes a handful of chips, one beer or burger for lunch for your house of muscle-cards to collapse in an instance. Dieting is very important when losing fat. It is the pillar on which your workout plan lies, the basis for achieving a hard body.
Take a look at this video presented by Elliott Hulse. He offers an extreme fat loss trick, which will help you in burning fat faster. You’ll find out that you need not turn to artificial fat burners to eliminate the last stubborn patch of fat on your abdomen or chests. The trick is natural, and easily available.
The extreme fat loss diet
This is actually a 7 day, 3 phase cycle or an extreme diet of a sort, where you cycle your fat and water intake. Two constant things that you follow throughout the cycle are the protein amount and the broccoli intake.
1. The first three days you’re going to eat protein from the driest and purest protein sources – turkey breast and tuna. You’ll increase your water intake to 2 gallons a day. You are also allowed to eat unlimited amounts of cruciferous vegetables (with broccoli being one of the best ones).
2. The second block of 3 days you’re going to lower the water intake to a gallon a day. Instead of low fat protein you’re going to include higher fat protein like buffalo meat, chicken meat etc. The intake of broccoli should stay the same during this period.
3. After the second phase, there is a day where you eat carbs liberally. You also reduce your water intake to half a gallon a day.
You do the cycle for 14 days in total and no longer than that.
Broccoli benefits during the extreme diet cycle
Broccoli contains phytochemicals called indoles, which play a role in estrogen metabolism. Indoles convert excess estrogen into a safer form, which significantly reduces the risk of estrogen-linked cancers, such as breast cancer and prostate cancer.
At the same time this “suppression” of estrogen will help in keeping testosterone levels high and steady.
A study found that diets high in indole-3-carbinol, a component of cruciferous vegetables, decreases the excretion of estradiol (one of the most important estrogen hormones) in men by up to 50 percent.
