We tend to use the term “weight loss” generally when we go on a diet. And while some are content with simply watching the numbers of the scale go down, it is important that you focus solely on losing fat rather than precious, lean body mass.
If you want to simply lose weight…and you don’t care where the weight comes from (body fat, bones, muscle, organs, etc.) then the fastest way to accomplish that is through dietary fasting (not eating anything). Fasting is the fastest way to lose weight…but it comes with a hefty price, up to and including death.
After about a day of fasting, your body is getting 80-90% of its energy from its own body fat, which is a very good thing.
However, when the body goes several hours without protein (amino acids needed to sustain life), it begins to attack its own protein stores. Sooner or later, lean body mass is attacked to a point where you are unable to move and your organs malfunction, which will later result in your death.
The fact is, there are certain diets out there that have great success in helping people achieve weight loss with studies to prove it—however, by the way those diets are structured, a large portion of the weight that are lost is not body fat, but instead, lean body mass. Lean body mass is basically everything that is not body fat. This includes skeletal muscle, organs and bones. Remember, a decrease in lean body mass equates to a slower running metabolism. A slow metabolism will make it harder to lose weight and easier for you to put weight back on once it’s lost. The 3 Week Diet is designed to not only keep your metabolism churning along, but also works to reset and increase its ability so that you are constantly running at your body’s maximum potential.
