Fat Loss and Weight Lifting Tips (episode 1)
Would you like to know the most effectively way to lose body fat and gain muscle tone at the same time? Well then, keep reading...
In the video I talk about how much should you lift and why lifting is good for you when you are on a calorie deficit for fat loss and the difference between anabolic and catabolic processes in the body:
Maintenance is what your body needs to stay the same and never lose. Anything over that is how you gain weight. Some days you might eat under, and other days over. If it's too much over that is how we gain weight or get frustrated because we stay the same.
For fat loss the trick is to stay at maintenance, but also have most days during the week UNDER maintenance to lose fat. If done consistently this is like paying off a debt. It happens slowly over time, just like paying off a mortgage debt. It is the consistent payments that pay it off.
What matters is the calories at the end of the day in the 24-hour period, extend that out 7 days, 30, 60, and 90 days for results.
Fat loss is catabolic. This is counter-balanced by weight lifting which is anabolic.

Vitamins are LIFE. A little history about vitamins ... vitamin means "life giving". Vita means life, vitality, vivacious. Over time in history people found that these were compounds that gave life to people who had them and death to people who did not have them; lack of thiamine (B1) causes beriberi, lack of vitamin A causes blindness, lack of vitamin C causes scurvy, lack of vitamin D causes Rickets, etc.
The three most important supplements for fat loss and weight lifting are:
1) For both muscle toning and fat loss the important supplements are: Micro-nutrients (vitamins and minerals), probiotics, healthy fats, antioxidants, enzymes, and phytochemicals because these the compounds that make all the digestive and metabolism processes work at their best performance. These are provided Opti-greens 50 products: Opti-greens 50 and the Micro factor vitamin pack.
2) For the best muscle recovery after lifting weights, the body needs a quick absorbing carbohydrate and protein. This is provided by the Post Workout Stack. This benefits anyone because of the anabolic window after lifting weights. This is when your body is primed to receive the fast-acting carbohydrate and protein in those products. This is the one case where whole food cannot do what these isolated products can. More on the post workout stack:
3) FAT LOSS and MUSCLE RECOVERY:The C21 and T21 are the main components of the Royal Queen and King fat loss system for reducing cortisol and helping the thyroid work at its best. The C21 helps the body produce the best REM sleep for muscle recovery and fat loss. The actual Royal Queen and King part of the stack is for appetite suppression and focused energy.The entire combination works in synergy during the full 24 hours.The Royal Queen is designed for women, and the Royal King is designed for men. The Royal Queen stack.
