response is the fat-loss code you need to crack so you can lose weight and keep it off for good. Like any code, the 'fat-loss code' solves a mystery — in this case, the mystery of why you can restrict calories, lose weight, and then hit the dreaded diet plateau.
"So cracking the fat-loss code is about understanding the body's adaptive response."
The Fat-Loss Code
• You’ve got a body whose job is to survive.
• You’ve got food coming in: intake.
• You’ve got energy being used: expenditure.
• You’ve got a “survival machine” analyzing the fuel coming in every 72 hours.
• You’ve got the same survival machine processing the energy going out every 48 hours.
• You’ve got a point of adaptation where the body analyzes the 72/48 fat-loss code and realizes how much to spend with what’s come in.
• And you? You’ve got a nasty dieter’s plateau just waiting to be conquered!
Chant notes, "As a result of these very powerful elements, cracking the fat-loss code is a scientific process of macro-patterning during a proven eight-week period specifically designed to counteract the body’s inherent adaptive response."
Macro-patterning? Chant says that's the manipulation of the energy you take in via protein, fat and carbs.
With her plan, you can eat all foods, but you need to develop an understanding of how your body uses the energy from food.
"The body uses energy logically," Chant says. "It uses carbs as its main source.
"The three sources of energy are the food you eat, the energy readily available in your muscles, and the energy stored in fat cells."
Chant says fad diets are doomed for failure because they keep you on the same eating regimen and that allows your body to adjust and stop burning fat as efficiently.
"Every 72 hours the body figures out what is coming in," she says. "You never want three days the same because it's the design of the body to keep and hold."
So while you'll enjoy carb-heavy foods one day, you'll follow up with a carb-light day. You'll end up eating all the foods you love, but in a manner more conducive to fat burning.
"Fat loss is biological and chemical," Chant says. "You are better off having 7 cookies on one day than to have one cookie a day for 7 days."
Crack The Fat-Loss Code will train you to create a science-based eating plan that works for you. Once you work your way through the first right weeks, you'll be ready to go forth with the proven eating habits that lead to weight loss and -- eventually -- weight maintenance for life.
