Using the Accelerated Fat Loss Cycle to
Crack the Fat Loss Code
The Accelerated Fat Loss Cycle (AFL) is specifically set up to overcome every type of
adaptive response the body has to stop you from losing weight.

To refresh your memory, your body is not designed for fat loss. As soon as you start
manipulating calories by increasing or decreasing food intake, your body responds by
trying to adapt and fight against fat-loss.

Think of fat like your bodys insurance policy for survival. It wants to hang on to as
much fat as it can to insure it has everything it needs just in case.

So your body does its job by making a series of complicated calculations to balance its
energy resources and the performance of its various functions 24/7.

And in order for your body to perform these functions, it must adapt.

So this cycle takes into account the five ways your body uses adaptation to be more
efficient. Here is a breakdown of how we'll address these five adaptive responses:

1. Manipulate glycogen in new ways that your body has never experienced.

You should know by now that you deplete carbs in this program to force your body to
find fat stores when it needs energy. Remember, long-term use of carb depletion
actually hinders fat loss because of the overall reduction in metabolic rate and
hormone outputsuch as thyroid (T3 to T4 conversion), leptin sensitivity and growth
hormone factors

All of which help your body burn fat.

So in order to overcome these various adaptations youll be using 3 higher carb days
within your week; a mid-week carb load (re-feed), a cheat day, and a baseline day.

This will help balance things out physically and psychologically. It will also make it a
lot easier to adhere to.

2. Manipulate blood sugar levels by strategically patterning your macro-


nutrients.

Its pretty common knowledge that increased blood sugar levels promote fat storage;
balanced levels make your body capable of using more stored fatty acids as a
source of energy.

More fibrous carbohydrates and fewer days of sugar based carb consumption will
promote more balanced blood sugar levels.

The Accelerated Fat Loss Cycle has specific days where youll intentionally take in
more low-glycemic carbs.

Most diets today use only low-glycemic foods. Such diets are hard to live with over
the long term, and most people eventually abandon these types of plans.

But doing it a few days of the week? No problem man.

3. Manipulate nitrogen balance and stimulate lean muscle.

Protein is the only macronutrient that maintains and releases nitrogen to keep your
muscles healthy. When you don't consume enough protein each day, muscle
becomes unhealthy and a negative nitrogen balance is present.

When this happens, your body sees such muscle as a liability and uses the
unhealthy muscle tissue instead of fatty acids as a source of energy.

The answer to this is simple.

Consume protein throughout the day to keep your muscles healthy and maintain a
positive nitrogen balance. This is a very important part of this particular cycle.

4. Manipulate and cycle calorie intake.

Calorie reduction is obviously one of the easiest ways to force an energy deficit that
leads to fatty acids being used as energy.

Cycle 3 uses calorie restriction strategically, on specific days, because your body
quickly "senses" calorie reduction. You should know by now that if you follow a
reduced-calorie diet continually, your body will have no other choice but to conserve
energy and reduce its metabolic rate.

This cycle is strategically set up to overcome and prevent metabolic slow down.

5. Overcome and manipulate your body's need for constant and continual
energy.

When your body doesn't have an ongoing feeding pattern, sometimes it will
assume the last meal you gave it is the last meal it will get.

So your eating patterns determine how and if your body uses the food you take in
immediately or whether it stores it for later use.

The structure of your meal patterning is one of the major keys to success with this
cycle and plan.

Youll also manipulate meal portions to stimulate your metabolic rate with hyper-
caloric eating.

2012 4cyclefatloss.com All right reserved. 5


When you follow diet or meal plans in which you constantly consume five or six
small meals a day, your body gets used to the amount of fuel intake, adapts, and
slows your metabolism.

This makes almost all diets ineffective. This plan overcomes this by adding in cheat
days and re-feeds on specific days to keep your body burning fat and to keep you
from going insane. :)

This unique food plan cycle works best if you follow it for no more than 14 days; it
is not meant to be used forever.

Its one of the most powerful sequences of patterning macro-nutrients to get you
"unstuck" from a diet plateau and works especially well if you have dieted a lot
throughout the years.

It will also spark your metabolic rate when you follow it properly.

The AFL is the first and only plan that considers every one of the body's adaptive
means and, best of all, overcomes them to help you crack the fat-loss code.

Don't be afraid to try new things. This plan encourages and even demands your
body change, so you might as well go for it and give it your all.

You can do it!

The AFL guidelines are a bit more detailed and specific than those for the two previous
meal cycles. I've given you the basic dos and don'ts, then broken out guidelines that will
increase your results for specific days.

Rules and Guidelines


ACCELERATED FAT LOSS CYCLE
Weeks 5 - 6
1. Stay hydrated. Drink eight to ten glasses of water daily. Men: 120 ounces Women: 70 to
80 ounces.

2. You must eat proteins at every meal except the following:

Protein is not required at all on cheat days, but its recommended.

On fats-up days, eat protein at every meal except for "fat snacks."

3. Eat only proteins and carbs from AFL food list unless its a cheat meal.

4. Follow your food TYPE for each meal of each day from the approved food lists below.

5. Continue exercising five to six days of the week.

6. Continue to journal your food. It works.

2012 4cyclefatloss.com All right reserved. 8


Fats-Up/Carbs-Zero Day
1. Keep portion sizes smaller than you're used to.

2. Eat at least five meals per day.

3. Try to eat every three hours.

4. You may (and should) eat red meat. Try to use grass fed and hormone free.

5. Eat a fat snack between breakfast and lunch and between lunch and dinner.

6. Limit yourself to 1 cup of vegetables at lunch and dinner.

7. Eat only fats and vegetables from the AFL food list.

Fats-Down/Carbs-Down Day
1. Keep portion sizes smaller than you're used to.

2. Eat at least five meals per day.

3. Eat every two to three hours.

4. Keep your fat intake to a minimum and avoid all saturated fats.

5. You may have only supplemental fats, such as essential fatty acid supplements or
flaxseed oil.

6. Limit yourself to 1 cup of vegetables at lunch and dinner.

7. Do not eat red meat or whole eggs (fat down).

8. Eat only fats and vegetables from the AFL food list.

2012 4cyclefatloss.com All right reserved. 9


Fats-Down/Carbs-Baseline Day
1. On Wednesday, eat at least four meals; five meals are ideal. Eat every three to four
hours, and be sure meals have typical portion sizes.

2. On Sunday, eat at least three meals and consume larger portions (vacation meal size).

3. Eat starchy carbs from the approved food list below.

4. Women may have one serving of starchy carbs at two different meals. Make sure to
move your starch to the meal after your workout if youre exercising. Consume before
3pm if not exercising.

5. Men may have one serving of starchy carbs at three different meals.

6. You may substitute a fruit for a starch for 1 meal on this day.

Cheat Days
1. Eat whatever you want in any amount.

2. You can fill up and satisfy yourself, but dont binge or stuff.

3. If you consume alcohol on this day - make sure you do it AFTER a few cheat meals,
otherwise you could sabotage the hormonal effect of the cheat day.

A Quick Warning About Cheat Days


Cheat days and cheat meals should only be used to accomplish specific physical and
psychological functions directly related to fat-loss goals

So Ill only say this once. IF you binge or stuff all day long on cheat days (trust meIve
had my moments), youll create a downward spiral and completely sabotage your fat loss
goals.

2012 4cyclefatloss.com All right reserved. 10


Important Tips and Tricks to Maximize the
Results of Your Cheat Days
Try to avoid a lot of alcohol when cheating. This can mess up the metabolic
and hormonal effect youre trying to accomplish.

Try to avoid a lot of deep fried foods and high fructose corn syrup. Deep
fried foods are basically void of any nutritional value and therefore dont
provide any metabolic or hormonal benefits for the cheat. HFCS has been
shown to potentially block or negatively impact leptin levels.

Again, its a cheat day so you dont have to get anal, but little tricks like
this can really help.

Dont weigh yourself for at least 2 to 3 days after your cheat day. This is HUGE,
because it will keep you psychologically in the right spot because when you cheat
right, almost all the weight youve gained is just water weight from extra carbs.

Remember, for EVERY gram of carb you consume your body holds nearly
3 grams of water. Now you can see why youll gain some water weight after
cheating. Its just a natural part of the process.

You should be one to three pounds lighter a few days after you cheat day
if youre doing things properly and using the next trick

Plan for extra water the day after a cheat day.

Remember the extra water your body will carry (from all the carbs) the next day.
Thats why you hear people always talking about carb-bloat the day after cheating.
And the more water you give your body, the less it will HOLD onto.

Water is great damage control to get you back on track.
