If you have been following along for some time now, you know that I completed my first round of Faster Way To Fat Loss last March. Since then I have incorporated the FWTFL program into my everyday lifestyle. Immediately after I finished my first round of the program I was hooked. I was eating better, I was working out less, yes LESS and my clothes were fitting better! My shorter workouts were making much more of a difference than my one hour + workouts I had been doing and it’s because all of these workouts are specifically designed to coordinate with your nutrition plan and maximize fat burning + muscle building.
Before I get into the details of this six week fitness and nutrition program, let me give you a little history of why I started it. I have always enjoyed physical activity. Whether it was going to the gym, a trendy workout class or training for a mud run, working out was something I really loved to do. In my mid 20’s I was in the best shape of my life as I was working out 6 days a week and even though I wasn’t really eating that great, my 20 year old self was doing just fine. Well then my 30’s hit and then I became a mama. I could no longer work out 6 days a week and I really had to watch what I ate. I feel like I had to be so strict on what I ate and my workouts I was used to doing were no longer making me feel like they were working. Also, if you know me, you know I love food so being strict on what I ate was making me miserable!
Everything that worked for me before wasn’t working for me anymore and I was getting so discouraged. I began to see people posting about the FWTFL program so I started to look into it. The more I read about it, I saw that it was not a diet plan or just a workout plan but really a program that teaches you to incorporate healthier living into your everyday lifestyle. The workouts are an added bonus but I saw a lot of people sharing their weight loss journey with this program not doing the workouts. I was immediately intrigued. Although I knew I would continue to workout I was shook that these people saw great results without them. Right around this time, my now coach, Cathy Dezorzi , reached out to me about the Faster Way To Fat Loss program and I am so glad she did.
Today I want to sharing everything you need to know about the Faster Way To Fat Loss Program
What Is Faster Way To Fat Loss?
FWTFL is not a quick fix or crash diet. The Faster Way to Fat Loss program is a 6 week program that incorporates intermittent fasting, carb cycling, whole food nutrition and strategic workouts to accelerate fat loss. The program is flexible and they focus on progress over perfection. It is truly meant to become a sustainable lifestyle and that is why it is so successful.
INTERMITTENT FASTING – Intermittent Fasting is basically just a formal eating window. The program recommends an 8 hour eating window and a 16 hour fasting window. The time that you choose for your fasting and eating window is up to you and what works best for your schedule and lifestyle! This is the part of the program I think made the biggest difference for me. Because I am both a night owl and an early bird, I would eat at all hours of the night.
Can you still have your morning coffee? Answering this because it was a deal breaker for me LOL. The answer is yes! If you can, drink it black but if not just keep it under 50 calories. Unsweetened almond or coconut milk or even nut pods are great choices. If you prefer your coffee sweet, they suggest you use liquid stevia to sweeten.
CARB CYCLING – Carb cycling is a strategic method to accelerate fat loss. Your body needs carbs to help fuel your body. Carb cycling between low carb days and regular carb days will help ensure that your body burns fat effectively without causing significant hormonal damage or dips in energy. Carb cycling helps your body store less fat, as well as, helps improve your insulin levels. When you pair intermittent fasting, carb cycling and the workouts included in this program, you can break the typical plateau that so many people hit when they’re trying to lose weight. When we carb cycle we are able to deplete our glycogen stores and our bodies will then burn fat for fuel. The ultimate goal is to convert you from a “sugar burner” to a “pro fat burner”.
WHAT ARE MACROS AND WHY ARE WE COUNTING THEM? – This was probably the most confusing part of all to me LOL. Do not get intimated by this. Basically macros are carbs, proteins and fats. When you’re “counting macros” all you are doing is entering everything you eat into the MyFitnessPal app. Thankfully MyFitnessPal does all of the calculating for you and Cathy is there to make sure you set your goals up correctly. Also, the Facebook group you will be added to when you join is super helpful when you have any questions. Each day you will use the MyFitnessPal app to keep track of your macros. This app will allow you to plan out your daily food intake and then it will calculate your macros for you. Don’t let this overwhelm you, once you get started it will start to make sense.
WORKOUTS – There are three levels of workouts to choose from within the Faster Way to Fat Loss program – low impact, at-home, and gym workouts. They’re mostly a mix of HIIT (high intensity interval training) and strength training. All of these workouts are specifically designed to coordinate with your nutrition plan and maximize fat burning + muscle building.
The workouts are amazing and effective! Some are even only 30 minutes and you will be so sore the next day! You all know that I have been doing Orange Theory and trying out other workouts but friendly reminder that I have been incoporating FWTFL into my lifestyle for almost a year now so I have an idea how to alter my workouts with my macros for the day. If you are doing the FWTFL program for the first time, I would just consult with your coach on any of your exisiting workouts you want to incorporate along with the FWTFL workouts so that she can help you maximize your program. Otherwise for the first six weeks, I would highly suggest you stick with only the workouts in the program to see your maximum results! 🙂
