7 Fat Loss Myths Shattered

7 Fat Loss Myths Shattered

There are certain fat loss myths that people have been taught that are dead wrong. Even myself, until very recently, believed many of these to be facts that were set in stone.

Not anymore.

Some of these 7 fat loss myths may go against everything you’ve been taught to believe about fat loss. However, sometimes going against convention is exactly what you need to do to get spectacular results!

Let’s begin…

MYTH #1: Successfully losing fat always means losing some muscle mass as well.

FACT: It is possible to actually GAIN muscle while losing fat, not just in beginners but even in advanced trainers. All it takes is the right program of training and nutrition.

MYTH #2: Gaining muscle requires additional calories from food, therefore it’s impossible to gain muscle under reduced-calorie conditions.

FACT: Under the right dietary and training conditions, your body can actually use your own bodyfat to provide energy for building muscle, practically doubling the speed of fat loss.

MYTH #3: You must choose a consistently-strict diet of either low-carb or low-fat foods to lose fat rapidly.

FACT: Low-carb diets work. Low-fat diets work. But neither works forever. You can take the best features of both and combine them to actually FEED off each other with NO plateaus EVER.

MYTH #4: To lose fat with weight training, you must use high-reps with light weights.

FACT: This is another one of those eye-rolling fat loss myths. Training with high reps and isolation exercises for fat loss is a waste of time and energy. It will practically guarantee that you won’t lose fat quickly.

MYTH #5: You need to take fat-burning pills or supplements to maximize fat loss.

FACT: Your own natural metabolism is FAR more powerful for burning fat than any fat-loss pills or potions you could EVER take IF you know how to stimulate it properly.

MYTH #6: Gradually reducing your caloric intake over time is the best way to ensure steady fat loss.

FACT: Consistently reducing your caloric intake is a great way to lose muscle mass.  Precise manipulation of the nutrients in your diet can have extraordinary anabolic (muscle-building) and lipolytic (fat-burning) hormonal effects on your body. It’s all a matter of what you eat and when you eat it.

MYTH #7: When you come off a fat-loss diet, there will always be some rebound weight gain.

FACT: When the metabolism is properly stimulated and the right combination of nutrients is eaten, rebound weight gain can not only be eliminated, it can be reversed. With the proper training and nutrition plan, you can actually CONTINUE to lose fat even when you go back to normal training and eating.

Side-Step the Fat Loss Myths and Start LOSING Fat

Sound interesting? I thought so. I created a fat-loss program that shattered many of what I previously thought were “facts” and turned them into myths. It was a real eye-opener for me, too!

You see, over my many years of training, I had never once found a fat-loss program that allowed me to even keep, much less GAIN muscle while dieting. They were just a pack of fat loss myths.  I ALWAYS ended up smaller, weaker and depressed from having lost so much of my hard-earned muscle.

Sure, I lost some fat, but I had to go right back to higher-calorie eating in order to regain the muscle that I lost. This left me right back at square one.  I had more more muscle.  That problem is a thing of the past!

My Revelation

The name of my program is “Metabolic Surge – Rapid Fat Loss”. It’s named for its ability to push your metabolism far beyond where it’s been before and take FULL advantage of the true power of your body’s own natural processes.

Check out my own experiences with the program…

“For the last several years, I’ve experimented with various training and nutritional theories, techniques and practices all with one very desirable goal in mind.  The results were burning maximum fat while keeping maximum muscle.”

“The results of my research were far beyond my expectations! I have created a training and nutritional program that not only harnesses and applies the awesome power of your natural metabolism and natural fat-burning and muscle-building hormones. It actually takes these processes and makes them FEED on each other to amplify their effects on your body!”

“The bottom line is, I have created a program that will allow you to actually BUILD muscle while burning large amounts of fat. I’ve never, on any other program, experienced results anywhere close to what I got from just one, short 36-day cycle of this groundbreaking program.”

Let Me Put it This Way

“Let me put it this way…I started the program weighing 207 pounds. I finished the program 36 days later weighing 207 pounds. Why is this a good thing? Because I LOST 3 INCHES from my waist while doing it!”

“Not only did I burn almost 10 pounds of fat in 36 days, I gained almost 10 pounds of muscle AND even increased my strength significantly. Ever done that on a fat-loss program before? Me neither. It’s downright extraordinary for an advanced trainer to accomplish results like these.”

“If you’re primarily interested in weight loss, however, don’t let my results throw you off. I’m certainly not saying you’re not going to lose weight when you do this program. Far from it!”

“You will lose a tremendous amount of fat while KEEPING your muscle mass. It won’t be water or muscle that you lose but FAT, which is exactly what you want to lose when you’re losing weight.”

“The numbers on your scale could very well drop like a stone, depending on how much fat you’ve got to lose and how much muscle mass you carry. For myself, I ended up at the exact same weight and I was ecstatic! This is a system that is guaranteed to reshape your body extremely rapidly.”


“This program is also very special in that, when finished, I did NOT experience any rebound weight gain at all as with many other programs, even after losing so much fat so rapidly. To be honest, I actually continued to lose even after I finished the program! My metabolism was just cranking so fast at that point. Even when I went back to regular eating, my body still continued to burn fat.”

“Please note, this program is not for the person who is looking to coast through and get results. The training is demanding. But if you’re already training hard and not getting the results you want, this program is EXACTLY what you need. Every ounce of effort that you put in will be rewarded with results.”

This is truly one of the most effective training programs you can do if you’re looking to burn lots of fat while keeping and even building muscle mass. You know from experience that I’m not one to mess around with ineffective information. I strongly urge you to have a closer look at what this program can do for you.

The worst thing that can happen to you in your training is absolutely nothing. Why not take a plan that is guaranteed to work and make the next 36 days the most productive of your life!  Reverse the fat loss myths and make a fat burning program work in your favor for a change.
