Maybe I'm being impatient because it has only been a week, but I'm paranoid about losing muscle because I always felt that I was one of those "skinny fat people" you talk about and I've lost muscle before doing crash diets. I bought your Burn the Fat, Feed the muscle program and I'm doing it right this time - all by the book. Generally you shouldn't worry too much about one week's results, even if there's a significant fluctuation (in the wrong direction). First, keep in mind it's unlikely that you will lose a pound in a week and lose 0% fat, and therefore assume you lost 100% muscle. There's margin for error in calipers and your water weight can fluctuate greatly in either direction, masking body composition change. One of the best new terms I've heard added to the body composition vernacular in recent years comes from Alan Aragon. Given the fact that your bodyweight and your LBM can fluctuate up and down so much in the short term based on inconsequential changes, you should pay much more attention to the trend over time than short term dips or valleys. This of course requires that you use the Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle technique of weekly progress charting (discussed in chapter 4). I am however, very much in favor of gathering weekly feedback and making quick course corrections. If all signs point toward confirming muscle loss, you might make a program adjustment (nutrition and or training) after just one week even if it's precautionary. While I agree that we shouldn't panic about temporary fluctuations, I disagree with that premise about body comp testing less frequently. Wouldn't it have been easier to keep a close eye on progress more often and change course before getting too far off track?

Tom Venuto is the author of the #1 best seller, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle: Fat Burning Secrets of the World's Best Bodybuilders and Fitness Models. All nuts do contain some amount of the omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid, but most only contain trace amounts. This very slow-digesting carb keeps blood sugar and insulin levels low, so fat burning can stay high.
In fact, research has shown that athletes who consume slow-digesting carbs in the morning burn more fat throughout the entire day and during workouts than those consuming fast-digesting carbs. The mono-unsaturated fats found in avocados are burned readily for fuel during exercise and actually encourage fat burning. Avocados also contain a very interesting carb called mannoheptulose, a sugar that actually blunts insulin release and enhances calcium absorption, both of which are critical for encouraging fat loss. This way you know you're getting a direct supply of the fats that turn on fat burning and block fat storage.
Soybeans are the direct origin of soy protein, which has been shown to build muscle as efficiently as other forms of protein like whey and beef.
Soy has also been shown to aid fat loss, possibly by decreasing appetite and calorie intake. It has been estimated that drinking about 2 cups of cold water before breakfast, lunch and dinner every day for a year can burn 17,400 extra calories, which translates into a little more than 5 pounds of bodyfat! A study from the Scripps Clinic (San Diego, California) reported that subjects eating half of a grapefruit or drinking 8 oz of grapefruit juice three times a day while maintaining their normal diet lost an average of 4 pounds over 12 weeks - and some lost more than 10 pounds without even dieting! Results were likely due to grapefruit's ability to reduce insulin levels and to a chemical in grapefruit known as naringin, which prevents fat from being stored in the body. Research supports the notion that those who start their day with eggs not only eat fewer calories throughout the day, but also lose significantly more bodyfat. Hot peppers contain the active ingredient capsaicin, a chemical that can enhance calorie burning at rest as well as reduce hunger and food intake.
This fibrous carb doesn't provide many net carbs or calories, but it can make you feel full - one reason why it's a great food for getting lean.


Not only do they lower levels of the "bad" type of cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health, but they're also more likely to be burned as fuel, which means they're less likely to be sticking around your midsection. So for a 110-pound woman, total daily calories would be approximately 1,320; for a 150-pound woman, about 1,800.
For those of us that want physique excellence and are striving for our best body, that information won’t cut it.
Most people talk about burning body fat as a simple thing but it really means that the body is working harder and producing more ATP.  Our body always uses ATP for energy but the degree of ATP depends on food intake, training, hormones and other factors. Now various factors effect blood flow such as hormones, aerobic exercise in longer time periods, body temperature. Fat is bulky and lumpy so if you carry an extra five pounds of fat, you'll be lumpier than with five pounds more muscle. A woman weighing 150 pounds with 19% fat will look much smaller (and be much healthier) than a woman at 150 pounds with 35% fat.
All content on this website is for informational purposes only and should not be considered to be a specific diagnosis or treatment plan for any individual situation. You could speed up fat loss with a larger deficit, but you'll want to be sure your weight loss is fat before doing so.
On a Fitcast show podcast, he made a distinction between "essential lean body mass" and "nonessential lean body mass." I thought that was a brilliant way to express this difference between muscle tissue and other miscellaneous lean body mass. For example, if your progress chart shows two, three or more weeks in a row with loss of lean body mass you can feel fairly safe in assuming that some of that is loss of muscle and corrective action should be taken. After just one week, you would still be prudent to ask yourself whether you think that measurement and assessment (lost lbm) is correct, based on everything else you see going on - such as how you look in the mirror, your strength level, etc. I know trainers who insist that weekly body composition testing is too often because body composition doesn't change that much in a week. I believe in getting frequent feedback and making frequent course corrections when necessary. He checks his instrumentation constantly en route, and though he is actually veering off course all the time, he makes constant course corrections, eventually arriving in LA as if he went in a straight line (in reality he zig-zagged his way there, actually getting where he wanted to go as a result of going off course). I hope you see the obvious relevance of this analogy to your body composition improving endeavors. Tom is a lifetime natural bodybuilder and fat loss expert who achieved an astonishing ripped 3.7% body fat level without drugs or supplements. Unlike flaxseeds, which provide a type of omega-3 that has to be converted into EPA and DHA, salmon provides your body a direct supply of them with no conversion required.
These omega-3 fats have been found to turn on genes that stimulate fat burning and turn off genes that increase fat storage. Keeping insulin levels low and steady is critical for maintaining a fat-burning environment in your body. Avoid these and stick with natural peanut butters that don't add the type of fat you surely want to avoid - trans fats. When trying to lose weight during a rigorous exercise program, a good rule of thumb is to shoot for an intake of about 12 calories per pound of bodyweight. It’s too basic.  We know what good nutrition is but do we really know how body fat is burned? Fat is stored triglyceride and a little water and the process of getting it out of the cell is regulated by a enzyme known as hormone sensitive lipase or HSL. So we see that blood flow is the most important step or else the same fat you just worked so hard to break down will get restored.
This is where the enzyme carnitine will come in to “push” the fat toward the liver or muscle to be used for energy So we see that carnitine enzyme is important so how do we activate it? Use of this website and the information contained herein does not create a doctor-patient relationship.
If not corrected, the course deviation would continue to widen, and just a few hours later, our pilot may wake up and find himself in Alaska! Make sure your weight training program is properly designed to help you get stronger and you are working on increasing your strength.


Be certain that (a) you are not overtraining in duration or intensity, (b) you are allowing adequate recovery time in between workouts (appropriate frequency of training), and (c) you are allowing appropriate recovery for your body (some people can thrive on higher volume, higher frequency training, others cannot).
Studies on concurrent endurance and strength training show that cardio can interfere with strength at levels of more than 3 days a week especially if all the cardio you do is high in intensity. It has been shown not only to help improve performance during strength and anaerobic training, but also to help prevent muscle loss. Low intensity levels and HSL will be impaired greatly, exercise hard with moderate to low carbohydrates and you’ll activate HSL pretty good.
Because muscle is more dense than fat the person with less fat and more muscle will look smaller. Remember with these foods, the less processing the better, and try something new, you may be pleasantly surprised! Always consult with your own doctor in connection with any questions or issues you may have regarding your own health or the health of others. Should I drop my calories further or does it sometimes take more than a week for things to start taking effect? Sure, he could change course in Alaska, but he would have taken a time-consuming and costly detour.
Below 100 grams neuroendocrine abnormalities such as decreased thyroid conversion may occur. However some people - women in particular - avoid serious weight training and almost everyone misses workouts or just goes through the motions from time to time.
The research also showed neuro-endocrine adaptation to calorie restriction and increased hunger which could indicate likelihood to eat ones way out of calorie deficit. However, for maximum fat loss, it's beneficial to include frequent cardio, so this is a conflict of opposing goals. The main hormones are insulin and catecholamines, every other hormone as little to no effect on HSL.
Even the contents of your digestive system will show up as lean body mass in some body composition tests, right? If results aren't forthcoming, you can't afford to not get the most from every workout, let alone miss. If you're doing body weight exercise or non-progressive types of strength training (if you're bopping around in your living room with a DVD "workout"), it's time to step up your game.
If you're getting healthier, leaner, stronger and more muscular consistently, with under 7 hours of sleep, god bless you.
One solution is to keep up the frequent cardio but keep some of it low to moderate in intensity and don't overdo the duration (hours and hours of daily cardio are not needed.
It’s common knowledge that the catecholamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline are powerful fat burning hormones and rise during activity. If you're weak as a kitten because you starved yourself on some insane close-to-zero carb diet, that makes muscle-building training awfully difficult.
Join a serious gym, or put a power rack down in that dark, dingy basement of yours and start lifting some real iron. If you're stressed and you know it, escape the source of the stress or develop coping mechanisms fast or your training will be an uphill battle.
If you can't lose fat with 45-60 minutes per day, there is something horribly wrong with your nutrition).
The main way to activate the carnitine enzyme is to deplete muscle glycogen, so some has to be there. Backing off high volume cardio when fat loss is a primary goal is counter-intuitive, but if there are confirmed losses in LBM, and you've been stressed and overtrained, sometimes it's better to use moderate amounts of cardio and manipulate your nutrition to get the calorie deficit you need.
