Today we'll look at some nutrition mistakes people make with their fat burning.
Big FAT Mistake 2 - Follow a low fat, low calorie diet...and don't drink any water
You want to lose weight so you should eat a lot less right? I've got some news for you...The less you eat, the lower your metabolism will go, which is optimal for storing body fat.
Fat Gaining Recommendation: Keep your calories very low and deprive your body. Keep your calories around 1000-1200 per day (which is starving) and don't eat more than 15 to 20 grams of fat per day. You want your body to think it's starving so it'll hold on to body fat at all costs.
Also, don't drink any water. Drink juice instead; it'll work wonders for expanding your waistline. Why it works to store body fat: Every time you eat, your metabolism goes up. This isn't good when you're trying to store fat. Eating enough food will fuel fat burning, the opposite of what we want. You want your body to be in fat storing mode, which is best accomplished by depriving it.
Also, count your fat grams and keep your dietary fat levels low. This will teach your body to hold on to fat, another excellent method for putting on that extra adipose tissue (body fat)! And drinking water will only cause you to drop any excess water you're holding, therefore keep the water consumption low to keep you fat and bloated!
Big FAT Mistake 3 - Avoid Weight Training At All Costs
Increasing your lean body mass is the best way to increase your metabolism to burn fat. So stay away from any weight training!
Fat Gaining Recommendation: Don't touch the weights in the gym. Or, if you do, only lift ones that are small enough not to build any muscle (you know the ones - the little pink dumbbells in the ladies-only room).
Why it works to store fat: The goal is to keep your metabolism as low as possible to turn your body into a fat storing machine. Any lean muscle would be bad news when you're trying to gain fat because it would increase your metabolism and cause you to burn more calories!
Also, weight training (especially Afterburn Training) will raise your metabolism for the next 24 to 48 hours, which will never work to get that body fat up!
