The following is a guest post by Nate Green, who works with Dr. John Berardi, nutritional advisor to athletes like UFC champion Georges St. Pierre (GSP).

This is the first of two blog posts entailing extreme physical experiments. Absolutely no performance enhancing drugs of any kind were used.

Part 1 this post details exactly how topfighters like Georges St. Pierre rapidly lose 20-30 pounds for weigh-ins. To refine the method, Nate performed this on himself, losing 20 pounds in 5 days. The unique part: Dr. Berardi and team measured key variables throughout the entire process, including the last rehydration phase. As Berardi put it:

We used GSPs exact protocol with him [Nate]. The idea was that by doing this with a guy who didnt actually have to compete the next day, we could measure all sorts of performance variables that youd never get with an athlete about to fight.

Part 2 the next post will share how Nate used intermittent fasting and strategically planned eating to gain 20 pounds in 28 days, emulating a fighter who wants (or needs) to move up a weight class in competition.

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)fighters put it all out in the open for the world to see: they kick, punch, laugh, cry, and bleed in front of thousands of arena fans and millions more watching at home.

But even if youre a hardcorefan who knows all the stats, theres something behind the scenes that youve probably never seen in full: world-class weight manipulation

Done right, it can significantly increase a fighters chances of winning. An athlete will artificially lower his weight for pre-fight weigh-ins, then show up to the actual fight 10, 20, or even 30 pounds heavier than his opponent. Its a game changer.

Done wrong, it can make even the toughest guy lose his edge and probably the fight. Theres serious risk of organ failure if done haphazardly.

When starting a weight loss program, many people aren't concerned enough about losing weight safely.

The main thing you need to do is work with your body and not against it. If you follow the advice on this page, you will be doing just that!

Eat a well balanced diet, but avoid the short term "lose weight fast" diets.

The term eat a balanced diet simply means eat healthier foods and eat enough calories on a daily basis. It's not really a diet in that sense but just a way of eating.

The diets you should avoid are the short term rapid weight loss schemes. Most of these diets diets are based on calorie deprivation, which may help you lose weight, but it's certainly not a safe way to go.

Eating too few calories triggers a number of negative physiological reactions that result in muscle loss. So a lot of the weight you lose from low calorie dieting is water, muscle, and some fat. 🙁 Boooooo, that bites!

You don't want to lose your muscles!

Loss of muscle is to be avoided at all costs. It causes your metabolism to slow down. Thats a major reason why dieters never keep the weight off 95% of desperate dieters typically gain it all back. 🙁

So..

This leads us perfectly to the next tip on how to lose fat and weight safely

Bernie Salazar, who you might know as The Biggest Loser season five at-home winner and fan favorite, knows firsthand how to lose weight safely. He follows two rules to stay on track and maintain his weight loss. First, snack the smart way.

"You dont have to give up snacking, just choose healthy foods that help you feel more satisfied," he says. "For example, for 100 calories, enjoy six whole cups of Orville Redenbachers SmartPop!" Thats like eating just 14 almonds.

Also; if you have a bit of a sweet tooth and crave sugar, eat fruit, Salazar adds.

Salazar's second rule to stay motivated to lose weight is to have fun with your workouts.

"A very small percentage of individuals absolutely love to work out, but everyone enjoys playing and having fun," Salazar says. "By identifying physical activities that you love to do, you will be more likely to enjoy the time you spend being active and be more consistent with integrating it into your daily life."

Welcome! If you want to lose weight, gain muscle, increase energy levels or just generally look and feel healthier you've come to the right place.

Here's where to start:

Thanks for visiting!

Losing weight is insufficient terminology. Its too vague, too unspecific. When a person sets out to lose weight, just what are they trying to lose? Bone density? Muscle mass? Organ weight? Of course not theyre generally looking to lose adipose tissue. People want to burn body fat, and they want to do it without negatively impacting the more beneficial sources of (corporeal) gravitas. Simply put, you want to lose fat, not muscle. The only problem is that the popular methods for shedding weight often result in excessive (but really, any amount is excessive) muscle loss, too. Im talking, of course, about precisely the practices I rail against in the Primal Blueprint Chronic Cardio, ultra low-cal/low-fat ascetic dieting, and other trappings of Conventional Fitness Wisdom. Granted, adhering to any, individually or in concert, will probably help you lose weight, but a ton of it will come from your lean mass (not to mention bones and organs). That said, if youre going for skinny-fat chic or the waiflike, undernourished look, feel free to run fifteen miles a day and live off canned tuna and rice cakes. The scale will drop, and you wont be weighed down by that pesky musculature any longer.

But you dont want that (do you?). You want a strong, lean body. You want to maintain your agility, your power, your strength, and your agreeable appearance. You want to burn fat while maintaining (or even building upon) your existing muscle. Heck, if youre mostly interested in burning fat, you need the muscle. Muscle is a hungry, wasteful thing. It craves protein and fat to run effectively, along with a bit of glycogen every now and then to fuel up. Next to the organs and the brain, your muscle mass is one of the biggest consumers of energy in the body, and the more you have, the better your fat loss. Its a delicious cycle the right kind of exercise spares muscle and burns fat, and more muscle with reduced body fat allows you to do the right kind of exercise.

To make sure youre losing the right kind of weight, you have to chart your progress. Its a little more complicated than just watching your total weight, though. In fact, you dont even really need the scale anymore. Well, you can keep it around, but dont get too comfortable; your meetings will be fleeting and infrequent from here on out. Spend a little quality time alone, if you must. Get your fill of each other, because youre going to be using an entirely different set of barometers to monitor your weight loss: eyes, ears, belts, and weights.

Check yourself out. Dont hover in front of the mirror, though. Strip down to the bare essentials and take full body snapshots, making sure to space them out every few days. A lot of people tend to obsess over minor daily fluctuations, but youre not going to see a whole lot of visual differences that quickly. Five days, six days, or definitely a week, however, can be enough time to notice a difference in a direct comparison. Look out for misshapen lumps, sagging chests, flabby underarms all signs that youre losing muscle and maintaining fat.

If youre doing it right, you should be getting noticed. Whether its a significant other, a co-worker, or friends, people will compliment you. Heed their words. When people say, Youve lost weight! (and theyre not your grandmother clicking her tongue in disapproval) and, You look stronger and healthier! it means youre on the right track. Take it as a sign.

Losing fat and maintaining muscle means dropping pants sizes. Using an extra notch on the belt is good. Having to buy an entirely new belt is better. Using a hole punch to create new holes because you cant afford a new belt is pretty bad but at least youre still losing fat.

The best way to ensure youre maintaining muscle mass is to chart your progress in the weight room. Muscle loss is accompanied by a reduction in strength, so if you find yourself failing to hit the marks you used to destroy with ease, youre probably eating muscle. Its a bad sign if youre dropping weight and doing fewer pull-ups than before.

I was a bit loath to write this series of articles because I despise most things connected with the idea of rapid weight loss.

Wild promises of losing upwards of 1 pound per day, and the extreme weight loss measures that go with them, are a big reason why many people ultimately fail to achieve and maintain their weight loss goals.

The reality is you have to look at getting and staying fit as a LIFESTYLE change, not a quick fix.

Chasing quick fixes leads to yo-yo dieting, which doesnt necessarily physically impair future weight loss efforts, but sure is psychologically defeating.

Proper weight loss, however, is slow and steady, never leaves you feeling starved or run down, and even allows for building muscle and strength.This is, by far, the best way to go about losing weight.

So, with that said, lets get to why Iamwriting this article series.

Im writing these articles to help people that are desperately seeking rapid weight loss, and are willing to just about do anything to get there.

Common reasons for this are things like

Whatever your reason for wanting to lose weight fast, in this three-part article series, youre going to learn how to safely, healthily, and rapidlylose weightup to 15-20 pounds in one monthWITHOUT sacrificing a bunch of muscle or your metabolism, or any other aspect of your health.

The Motivation To Lose Weight

By Joshua Wayne, MA

We all know diets work. Every book, article, regimen, fitness plan, you name it works as long as you actually do it. Getting the motivation to follow through is arguably the most important part of losing weight. The information will always be there, but the motivation....that's the elusive piece of the puzzle, the thing that everyone wants and few of us have. How do you get the motivation to get started, stay on track, and most importantly, to get where you want to go?

How To Get To The Core Of Weight Loss Motivation

We get emails from people in everyday sharing their frustrations and challenges with weight loss. About 60% of them say they lack the motivation to stick with their weight loss program. They report that they do well for awhile and lose some weight, but inevitably fall off track- whether due to a loss of focus or some other kind of self-sabotage.

As a Personal Development Coach specializing in weight loss, and who was originally trained as a psychotherapist, it's very easy for me to give them advice, but as I sat down to write this article, I thought it might be nice to really start at the most basic, fundamental level of understanding motivation, and to then work up from there.

So armed with my trusty Mozilla Firefox I did a quick Google search for a basic definition of the word. Here is the first thing that Google gave me to consider (it came from an online dictionary associated with Princeton University):

"the psychological feature that arouses an organism to action toward a desired goal; the reason for the action; that which gives purpose and the condition of being motivated."

So let's pull some key words from that definition and see if we can come up with a useful way to apply the concept to weight loss.

Action Toward a Desired Goal:

After going through a cesarean section, be aware that your body went through a different experience than the mom who gave birth vaginally, which means you recovery will be different.

But, alas, you are not alone! For me the biggest hurdle of recovery was the extra weight gain following the surgery, shares Kira Kroboth, new mom from Raleigh, NC. It was a complete shock to me the amount of fluid you retain in the weeks after the c-section. This felt beyond unfair.

And, dont make the mistake of comparing yourself with Hollywood moms. The crazy diets and strenuous exercise routines they often dive into after giving birth are not recommended by most doctors.

When to get started Now that you have your sights set on the finish line, make sure that you are ready to head out of the starting gate. Most physicians recommend that you wait until your 6-week postpartum appointment before giving the green light to begin exercising. Dieting is also a no-no before your 6-week mark, especially while breastfeeding.

With a vaginal delivery, many women are able to begin light exercise, like walking or stretching, days after giving birth. Once you hit your check up and your doctor gives you the thumbs up, resuming normal activities is usually safe.

On the other hand, a c-section is major surgery, so recovery time and what you can do will take a little more patience. After a c-section, most moms are off of their pain meds and doing pretty well by their 2-week post-op appointment, advises Gina Dado, MD, anOB/GYN with Arizona OBGYN Affiliates, Paradise Valley Branch in Scottsdale, AZ.

Not until 6 weeks post c-section will they be off of all restrictions and can resume exercise and intercourse. It takes many months, however, for their incisions to remodel and their abdomen to shrink after a pregnancy, so they should be patient at getting their bodies back.

Mind and body Regardless of how you delivered your bundle of joy, moms of both delivery methods are advised to begin a light walking routine to increase your stamina and boost your spirits.
