Q: While multiple factors contribute to weight-loss success, what would you say is the all-time best way to lose weight fast?

A: There is definitely a way to lose weight faster than you are now. The No. 1 trick for fast weight loss is to engage in activities that burn the maximum amount of calories for the greatest amount of time. There are many day-to-day activities that burn calories (walking, gardening, household chores), but they don't meet the mark for burning the maximum amount of calories. What does? Weight training. Lifting weights helps you build lean muscle mass, which ultimately burns more calories-even when you're sitting in front of the computer!

For every additional pound of lean muscle mass you add to your frame, you will burn about 35 to 50 additional calories per day, according to researchers at Tufts University. That adds up to about 1,500 extra calories burned per month or 18,000 calories per year (5 lbs of body fat!) while resting.

Not only will weight training help you build lean muscle, but done with the proper intensity, it can raise the rate at which your body burns calories (your resting metabolic rate) for up to 48 hours after you leave the gym, resulting in even more fat loss.

It's been a year since my husband practically threw me away like GARBAGE for being too fat and disgusting, as he called me.And that’s when I decided I’d had enough… No matter what it took I was going to look great! The first thing I wanted to do was to get rid of cellulite. After much trial and error, I finally found a program that taught me the correct body movements to stimulate all 90 muscles of my lower body and the right way to optimize my hormones through nutrient balance. The end result is astonishing. Cellulite is gone.The firmness and tightness of my body is something I've never felt before.I feel proud of myself. And so can you...

Since I turned 40 it has been increasing harder to lose weight. I have tried every diet, watch what I ate etc., nothing worked. One day my husband came home and told me about this system, I thought why not. Three months later I lost 34 pounds and 3 sizes. Now that I’m on the maintenance part of the system I lost a total of 38 pounds and now down 4 sizes…. This system works. It really had me change my eating habits. I have learned valuable nutritional information to ensure I keep the weight off and look great. Three months later I lost 34 pounds and 3 sizes, just following this system: >> leanbellybreakthrough1 .club << Google it
