Wanted to say, I joined this program on your say so. I am 72 and was both curious and skeptical. Must admit I am now a enthusiastic convert. The program is completely doable, portable, and possible to do at home. The beginner exercise program was manageable for me, and I worked out in my small condo with no equipment other than hand weights. Daily accountability is another appreciated key to this program. I am in my last week of round 1. I am eating better, sleeping better, and down both pounds and inches. Money well spent. Thanks for sharing this with us.
I must thank you for telling us about the Faster way to Fat loss program. I watched your positive results and finally took the plunge and will now begin week 3. The eating program is great, and I was so surprised that the fasting isn’t a big deal. I don’t feel as obsessed about food.

FASTer Way to Fat Loss is extremely easy to follow and lays everything out step by step. during the 6-week program, you receive a full program guide complete with daily workouts, nutritional guidelines, webinars, meal plan information and access to a Facebook group where all of your questions are answered.
FASTer Way to Fat Loss teaches how to fuel our bodies, so we become fat-burning machines. here are the key components that teach the best way to lose weight fast:
carb cycling simply means some days you eat low carb and other days you eat moderate carbs. this ensures that you will burn fat effectively without causing hormonal damage or dips in energy.
for example, on low carb days, i eat 50 grams or less of net carbs. net carbs are carbs minus fiber.
on regular macro days, i eat 205 carbs. this feels like a ton of food for someone who has been eating low carb for so long. some days i have trouble eating enough.
macronutrients are protein, carbs, and fat.
simply use the free version of My Fitness Pal to record your daily intake of macros. whenever you eat something, log it into My Fitness Pal. in the beginning, it helps to plan out your meals, so you aren’t scrambling at the last minute to fit in the right macros.
it’s not that hard i promise. and you’ll be assigned a coach that can answer any and all questions you may have during the 6-week program.
intermittent fasting is an important component of the Faster Way to Fat Loss. which means you stay in a fasted state for 16 hours. this may sound daunting, but it is doable, and you will get used to it. typically, i stop eating around 7 PM and don’t eat again until 11 AM. you can ease into this and slowly work up to it if that helps.
it’s funny, now that I have been doing it for so long, i no longer crave food at night. i don’t even think about it anymore. that’s a huge win for me.
intermittent fasting turns your body into a fat burner. it allows the body to utilize fat as its main source of energy and can help to change your overall body composition.
this program is based on eating whole, clean foods, and it’s something i can do for life. it is a gluten-free and dairy-free program, but I know folks who have had success without being dairy-free. and you can drink wine as long as it fits into your macros. eating well and not starving myself makes my body happy. and it’s the best way to lose weight fast, which can be a challenge once we hit menopause and beyond.
for the past fifty years, we’ve been told to cut calories and exercise more. right?! wrong. while exercise is key to staying active our diet is the most important factor to aging well. if you want to lose belly fat over 50 there are a few things to consider. first, balance your macros. many of you might be wondering what macros are. they’re better known as carbohydrates, protein, and fat. we need all three in our diet. carbohydrates provide fuel, the energy for your body and brain. it’s found in all plant foods, like grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes, and also milk and yogurt. but i typically stay away from grains and get my carbs by eating fruit, veggies, and legumes. protein helps to build and repair your muscles, organs, skin, blood, and different chemicals, like hormones, in your body. it’s found in meat, poultry, fish, legumes, dairy, tofu, and eggs, and in smaller amounts in nuts, seeds, and whole grains. fat insulates and protects your bones and organs, acts as a backup fuel for energy, and helps in brain development. healthy, unsaturated fats are found in olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish, like salmon, sardines, and mackerel. unhealthy saturated fats are found in high-fat beef, pork, butter, full-fat dairy, and processed foods, like cookies and donuts. these days i definitely stay away from processed foods as they are high in sugar. consuming too much sugar increases weight gain and leads to belly fat.
