The Master Cleanse is a fast way to lose weight. The problem that most people who do the cleanse experience is their weight loss stops or they hit a weight loss plateau within a few weeks.
There are ways to keep losing weight after working through a Master Cleanse and this article will show you how to use a day of overeating, brief exercise, and a simple natural ingredient to get your body back in fat burning mode.
3 Simple Tricks to Keep Losing Weight After Master Cleanse
These tricks are used to combat the drop in a hormone called leptin that results when you take in fewer calories during a diet such as the Master Cleanse diet.
Your body does not look at fat the same way you do. In fact, your body likes fat and tries to protect your fat stores to protect against starvation. If you drastically reduce your calorie intake on a diet such as the Master Cleanse, your body sees this as a danger and slams the brakes on your fat-burning hormones.
The key fat-burning hormone of your body is called leptin and this hormone controls all of the other weight loss hormones in your body. Leptin’s main job is to protect you from starving so when your calories drop, so does your leptin level. In fact, leptin can drop as much as 50% after one week on the Master Cleanse diet. That means your body is only operating at half of its fat burning potential.
If leptin is low you can struggle to even lose one pound. The solution is to convince your body that it is not starving and needs to keep leptin high.
Here is how to keep leptin high and keep burning fat:
1. Overfeed one day a week. In other words, you want to cheat on your diet one day each week. Research has shown that one day of overfeeding is enough to restore fat-burning leptin levels to their near normal levels.
Of course, if you over do your cheat day or drag your cheat day into two or more days, your body will convert the extra calories to fat. But, if you take one day a week out of your diet to add an additional 1,000 calories or more you will reap the benefits of higher leptin levels without giving your body time to lay down fat.
2. High Intensity Interval Training. Exercise will improve your body’s leptin sensitivity. In other words, your body will be able to use all of the leptin your body has to offer. And, the improvement in leptin sensitivity is dramatic. When you utilize high intensity interval training you alternate between brief periods of high intensity exercise and periods of low intensity exercise.
For example, if you are on a treadmill you can walk to warm-up for a few minutes then alternated between a minute of walking, a minute of jogging, and a minute of running. Do this for about 20 minutes and you have completed a fat-burning exercise routine that will benefit you all day long.
3. Take Irvingia Gabonensis. This compound is extracted from the African mango seed and is the ideal ingredient to boost leptin sensitivity. Irvingia has been shown in research to have a dramatic effect on weight loss.
For example, A research study on over 100 otherwise-healthy overweight individuals showed that those who received 150 mg of Irvingia extract twice daily prior to meals over a 10 week period lost an average of 28 pounds. These same individuals also shed 6.7 inches from their waistlines. And I should mention that these astonishing results were achieved with no other changes to their diet or exercise routine.
If you have been on the Master Cleanse diet and you do not want to waste the results you have worked so hard for, then you need to follow these three tips to keep losing weight after the Master Cleanse ends. First, add a cheat day to your diet week. Second, add some high intensity interval training to your week. And lastly, take Irvingia Gabonensis to boost leptin sensitivity and keep the pounds coming off.
