Efficient Ways To Get Fat And Stay Fat - Part 2

As promised, here is part 2. Enjoy!!

5. Lift light weights – Well, if you are going to lift weights. Make sure you lift light weights so that you don’t add any muscle. Because as you know now, muscle burns fat and we need to hold on to that fat.

Fat Burning Solution: I have written this before. Why would you lift a weight 10 times, when you could actually lift it 20 times? How does that make sense???? Welcome to the logic train………CHOO CHOO!!

6. Eat more sugar and starchy carbohydrates – Make sure to consume the larger percentage of your calories from sugar and starchy carbohydrates (rice, pasta, etc). This way your insulin levels sore and send your blood sugar into a whirlwind. Not only will you help hold on to fat but you might even score some diabetes!

Fat Burning Solution: Try to have things like rice, pasta and potatoes post workout only. All other times, get your carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables. Remember to consume a lean protein every time you eat. Although “calories in versus calories out” is a must in losing fat, it’s not just about the calories. Not everybody tolerates carbohydrates the same. Also, gluten (wheat and other grains containing gluten) is a large food allergen for many and has been linked to irritable bowel syndrome, heart disease and more. *Poor choices if you are looking to lose fat.*

7. Don’t change your workout program – Who wants results?? Results are for losers!! Keep doing the same workout program you have been doing Richard Simmons shorts were “IN”. If you keep on the same program, your body will adapt to the demands that you have placed on it. This way you will burn fewer calories during your workout because your body is used to it. Perfect for the goal of fat storing.

Fat Burning Solution: Insanity is defined as, “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”. Sorry but someone had to say it :)

8. Skip breakfast - Ahhhh. Perfect. Nothing beats topping an 8-10 fast by……….fasting even longer. This is a fantastic way to kill your metabolism, lose muscle and store fat. Really try to push it. To maximize your fat storing results, try not to eat until noon. *Me skipping breakfast.....seriously, ask my wife.*

Fat Burning Solution: Have you ever thought about what “breakfast” means? Break the fast!! You have been fasting all night. It is of the most importance that you consume something right away! The Golden Rule is, eat within 15 minutes of waking up. If you have some time, make a veggie omelet. If you are running behind try 2 scoops of protein, a hand full of frozen blueberries, and 1-2 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds. Blend it up and go.
