Learn how to lose excess body fat safely, effectively & long term
Hormones & not Calories are the key to FAT LOSS
Did you know that the ONLY organ in your body that controls how much fat you carry is your BRAIN? This is of huge importance and is the primary reason that low calorie diets FAIL long term for most people because when the brain senses food deprivation (calorie restriction) it thinks this is an emergency and will decrease your metabolism along with your fat burning and muscle building hormones almost immediately from the time you restrict your food intake and this can continue for months after you’ve finished your diet ensuring you regain all the weight lost during the diet plus gaining more weight.
Leptin is the hormone that has been shown in carefully controlled human studies to be responsible for body fat levels in humans. Leptin is a hormone that is released by your fat cells and communicates with your brain to achieve a healthy body fat % and to control your appetite and if you consistently restrict food intake, fat mass declines and so does leptin, and this signals the brain to stimulate hunger and make the body use calories more efficiently, in an attempt to regain lost body fat.
There are also multiple factors today that interfere with leptin signalling leading to leptin resistance and this will increase your weight significantly and I’ll explain how to ensure your brain is sensitive to leptin so you can lose excess fat. Also, the function of your thyroid gland which is crucial for fat loss is also linked to how well your leptin hormone is functioning.
Stress, artificial sweeteners, excess salt intake, toxins & lack of sleep can all make you gain weight yet there are ZERO calories in stress, toxins, artificial sweeteners, excess salt intake or sleep deprivation so how can they cause weight gain?
They all interfere with the way hormone’s function and turn on the hormones that store fat and switch off the hormones that burn fat and build muscle.
Your brain is the ONLY organ in your body that controls your weight
Understanding blood chemistry markers can help you significantly to achieve FAT LOSS.
During Phil’s extensive research about fat loss and building muscle, he discovered that there are certain blood and gastrointestinal markers which MUST be in the optimal ranges to create the right environment to build health, build muscle and lose excess fat safely, effectively, and long term.
Phil will reveal these markers and ranges in this Workshop.
When you truly understand how the calorie theory of weight loss was created which was around 150 years you will realise the absolute INSANITY of counting & cutting calories for weight loss.
If you look at the bomb calorimeter pictured this is how the calorie theory of weight loss first calculated. A calorie is a unit that measures energy.
Specifically, 1 calorie is the amount of energy it takes to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celsius in a BOMB CALORIMETER and not in the HUMAN BODY.
Also, there is a significant individual response to food as one of the largest nutritional studies ever conducted found when they give identical twins the same meal with the same calories, they observed very different hormonal responses from the twins when they analysed their bloods and the study concluded “counting calories is a complete waste of time”.
This is how calories are calculated in a bomb calorimeter
Menopause magnifies the role hormones have in weight gain
The menopause magnifies the incredible role that hormones play in obesity when a woman is transitioning from peri menopause through to the menopause there is a significant decline in testosterone, progesterone & oestrogen.
Many women during this period will gain a significant amount of weight without changing their diet, lifestyle, or exercise regime.
Unless these hormones are put back in the optimum ranges through body identical hormones the weight will keep piling on no matter how much they diet or exercise.
From my extensive research the most effective nutrition plan for losing excess body fat and building muscle is a high protein low carbohydrate diet and I will give you all the science on why this is my conclusion after 25 years of research.
There are also certain nutrients that if not supplied to the body, then the body will go into fat storage mode even if energy intake is low and these nutrients are 100% deficient in the people, that I run lab testing on and I will reveal what these nutrients are during this Workshop.
A high protein diet is essential for building muscle & losing fat
This is one of the MOST GROUND BREAKING Workshops on the subject of FAT LOSS with Phil Richards – one of the very few EXPERTS in the WORLD on this subject.
WHY SIGN UP TO THIS WORKSHOP?
Phil Richards has written a highly acclaimed and one of the most comprehensive books ever written on the subject of fat loss. It was published in 2013 and took over 10 years of research whilst Phil was working as a high-performance coach in professional sport to gather all the information necessary for the book which was titled The Science Of Fat Loss.
Since publishing The Science Of Fat Loss book, Phil has written 2 more books on nutrition & fat loss and has created one of the most advanced Online courses in the world on building muscle and losing fat which if in book format would be over 3000 plus pages.
Phil has literally left no stone unturned during his quest to establish the best methods to lose excess body fat safely, effectively & long term.
“Every trainer should read Phil’s Science Of Fat Loss Book it’s awesome.” ~ Dr Eric Serrano (World Leading Hormonal Expert)
