What you need to know about this fat-loss ‘trick’
This is one of the coolest tricks, I learned from the amazing 2-week diet plan by Brian Flatt(explained in this video). Here’s all there is to this trick:
- Prepare a high-protein breakfast that includes lemon juice and eat it
- Don’t eat carbohydrates with the breakfast, and also don’t eat any for the next few hours. The longer, the better!
Just make your breakfast a high-protein one (combined with a citrus fruit) and then avoid consuming a lot of carbohydrates (bread, pasta, rice, basically all grains and sugars) for the next few hours. This keeps your glycogen stores in the liver empty and you will notice the fat just melt! This trick on it’s own will not get you in amazing shape, but it’s a good starting point for anyone looking to get the fat-loss ball rolling! Once you see some results you then get motivated, which makes following a complete rapid fat-loss system, like the 2-week diet effortless.
A big advantage of the high-protein is that if keeps you full for much longer, compared to a carb-heavy one. Even cereals promoted as having a “low glycemic index” will create blood sugar ups and downs that will make you very hungry within 2 hours of eating them. So, not only are we eating an effective fat-loss breakfast, but we’re also ensuring that we won’t be very hungry for the next 3+ hours of the day!
But a high-protein breakfast is not all we’re doing here! We’re also adding some citrus fruit to make things even better! Eggs go very well with lemon juice and so does fish, if you’re willing to go through the trouble of preparing fish for breakfast. Eggs are much easier to make.
We have all heard that drinking vinegar of lemon juice will promote fat loss. This is due to many mechanisms, including Ph, detoxification and the way the liver processes fat. Drinking vinegar or lemon juice with a carbohydrate-rich meal will slow down the absorption of the carbs a lot and will put less fat on your body, then the same meal consumed without the acidic drink. It’s not fully understood how citrus fruits, combined with a low-carb and high-protein meal promote fat loss, but what’s important is that it works!
People traditionally ate protien for breakfast. Think about it – eggs and bacon, boiled eggs, were the most famous breakfast meals until a few years ago.
Eggs are a classic breakfast and have been such for hundreds of years. Only recently, people began eating carb-heavy oats and various breakfast cereals for breakfast, and the results are in – people have more problems with excessive body fat than ever! Of course, this is only one factor, but regardless, it’s an important one.
So, give this simple breakfast a try for a week or two and see how it goes!
