Loose Fat & Gain Muscle Naturally
Almost every athlete, weekend warrior, or​ gym regular wants to​ build bigger muscles while losing body fat at​ the same time. This can be a​ challenging task because the traditionalists will tell you that one must sacrifice either definition or​ gains in​ muscle.
While it’s easier to​ focus on one or​ the other there are a​ few tricks you can use that will have you on the right track in​ no time.
First things first… The Traditional Approach
To gain muscle a​ person has to​ consume more food, protein, carbs, fats, nutrients, and vitamins than they need to​ get bigger and less overall calories if​ they wish to​ get leaner.
This of​ course is​ the main reason bodybuilders tend to​ Bulk Up in​ the offseason.
This means the individual will eat loads of​ calories in​ the hopes of​ gaining more muscle mass. The extra muscle gain is​ achievable but the individual also will experience a​ significant gain of​ fat in​ the process, oftentimes more than the muscle gains.
After the Bulking Up period the individual will usually want to​ rip up for summer or​ for a​ contest. Then they usually have to​ subject themselves to​ a​ rigorous training and restrictive diet for 36 months to​ get they’re body fat levels where the muscles are clearly defined.
The continual up and down YoYo in​ weight gain plays havoc with the physical body not too mention the psyche of​ the individual. This generally accepted practice in​ bodybuilding has also led to​ the widespread use of​ ​Drug​s used by many athletes to​ bulk up or​ to​ get ripped.
Bodybuilding Traditionalists Dirty Secret
 
The Truth of​ the matter is​ the editors and writers for the big magazines won’t tell you is​ the widespread use of​ performance enhancing ​Drug​s by the top amateur and professional athletes who use an array of​ pharmaceuticals to​ build and maintain their muscles while dieting.
It’s Dirty Secrets like this that lead the unsuspecting population to​ question why their programs don’t work, or​ why they are not so genetically gifted. Traditional methods have created a​ tradition of​ ​Drug​s going all the way back into the 50’s. The problem has gotten worse not better.
Bottom line these ​Drug​s are dangerous have consequences, and can leave you and your body in​ a​ lot further away from your goals in​ the long run. Stay away from them!
Unfortunately, the pressure to​ be in​ shape and to​ become the next Ronnie Coleman has trickled down even to​ the regular Joe in​ the gym who wants to​ look good in​ a​ pair of​ Calvin Klein’s, and now you have guys and girls walking into gyms for the first time asking what the should be on.
This abuse of​ ​Drug​s has led to​ the overall dysfunction of​ the bodybuilding community on multiple levels mentally, physically and psychologically. What’s weird is​ the ​Drug​ Program today is​ so commonplace it​ has become traditional thinking as​ opposed to​ natural bodybuilding principles which are good healthy food, rigorous training of​ the mind and body, and an overall expression of​ health and vitality.
It’s time for a​ new way because the old mentality of​ traditional bodybuilding is​ over.
Gimme a​ Break From Tradition Thinking!
Fortunately, there is​ a​ better way to​ gain muscle and to​ lose body fat at​ the same time. Its called the Cycle Diet and it​ is​ fast becoming the most popular way to​ stay lean year round while continually gaining muscle. Lets examine first how the cycle diet works and then how you can incorporate it​ into your training routine.
Every bodybuilder who maintains there body fat levels below 7 percent knows as​ soon as​ they start eating the first few days of​ high calories their body explodes with new growth before any body fat gains occur.
 
The reason for this is​ the body is​ in​ a​ supercompensation state and initially stores the extra calories as​ glycogen in​ organs such as​ the liver as​ well as​ intramuscularly. Fats are also stored intramuscularly as​ well as​ protein is​ utilized for the growth and repair of​ muscles.
This supercompensation state only lasts for maybe 24 hours before the body starts to​ shuttle the extra calories into fat cells. But before that occurs there is​ a​ window of​ explosive growth available waiting to​ be tapped into and here is​ how you can do it.
Bodybuilding Legend Scott Abel Cracks The Code
The entire process was initially developed and coined the Cycle Diet by legendary trainer Scott Abel. I ​ believe that anyone interested in​ the deeper metabolic science behind the diet order one of​ Scott’s DVD’s as​ it’s well worth the money. Scott’s a​ brilliant innovator that has contributed more to​ the science of​ bodybuilding than any other person in​ the last 50 years and he has had a​ profound influence on my own training.
I have created a​ variation of​ Scotts Cycle Diet geared specifically for natural trainees. While I ​ feel Scott’s breakthrough and the science behind it​ is​ sheer brilliance his protocol does have some challenges for natural athletes as​ well as​ for individuals who may be enzyme deficient already.
I strongly recommend picking up a​ copy of​ enzyme pioneer Dr. Howell and his book Enzyme Nutrition for details on how rampant enzyme deficiency is​ in​ the population at​ large.
The 2 Main Challenges of​ The Traditional Cycle Diet
The first problem is​ Metabolic Damage from Enzyme deficiency. While the cycle diet works for months even years there is​ an ‘unseen cost. Over the long haul the Enzymatic cost of​ eating so much enzyme deficient foods and the potential damage and loss of​ metabolic enzymes. This can lead to​ training lethargy, poor recovery, early aging, and injuries.
The second cost is​ the longterm effects of​ this type of​ eating stress on the digestive tract, which can lead to​ thick deposits of​ mucoid plaque. This plaque is​ a​ breading ground for unhealthy bacteria to​ proliferate, which generate toxins that can lead to​ major health complications down the road.
This protocol allows you to​ build muscle while losing body fat as​ well as​ keeping your body free of​ toxic buildup.
Here is​ how it​ works.
First, you need to​ get your body fat levels below 7 percent for the maximum benefit of​ the protocol. The cool thing is​ once you get down to​ this level you can maintain this body fat level year round. if​ you are unsure how to​ get ripped you will want to​ follow one of​ my cutting up training and dietary protocols. it​ usually takes between 1220 weeks to​ hit single digits for anyone under 30 percent body fat. I ​ use the percentage a​ week method to​ determine how long it​ will take you to​ get in​ the single digit zone.
Second you need to​ be training a​ minimum of​ 5 days per week. in​ other words you need to​ be an intermediate or​ advanced trainee capable of​ handling significant volume and intensity in​ your training.
Third you need to​ keep your calorie intake about 5001000 calories below expenditure daily. if​ you are following one of​ my fiveday training programs simply multiply your Lean Body Mass LBM by 12. Whatever the total is, use that number as​ you’re starting caloric intake.
Of course this should be divided up into 5 meals of​ the right combinations of​ protein, carbs, fats and nutrients. For more information see my article on Getting Ripped Without Getting Ripped Off
I also suggest that you follow a​ 5 day Body Part per day program such as​ the ones on my website. Once you have your workout program and your dietary intake down you are ready to​ go for the Ultimate Natural Training Cycle. Virtually anyone who follows the system will be as​ ripped as​ they want to​ be in​ less than 6 months but before we get ahead of​ ourselves we must first begin by…
Priming The Pump
Now for the first 3 days of​ your training you will keep your caloric intake in​ the calculated range all on training days. On your first rest day, which usually will occur on the 4th day you will perform one of​ the juice fasts I ​ recommend for the whole day.
 
Consume as​ much juice as​ you like on the fast day and be sure to​ take some fiber to​ help remove accumulated mucoid plaque in​ the digestive tract. There are many herbs that can aid in​ the process as​ well which we outline at the freaky insider forums. I ​ call this cleaning out the intestinal tract Priming the Pump.
 
Keep in​ mind that only natural juices, preferably organic are used on the juice fast day free of​ sugars, additives, preservatives, sweeteners or​ anything else. I ​ recommend the Jack Lalanne power juicer to​ make your own fresh super juices. Intermediate and advanced athletes may wish to​ use one of​ my more aggressive cleansing fasts for even better results.
 
On the 5th and 6th days of​ the week you will resume your training and diet schedule, with the concurrent calorie deficit. This is​ really important as​ maintaining a​ strict control over calorie totals on the training days is​ essential to​ make the program work. That means no cheats, treats, or​ deviations from your diet.
On the 7th day, which should be an off day from training as​ well, EAT WHATEVER YOU WANT.
Is This 7th Heaven?
 
Thats right all the things that you would like load up on them. Its a​ good idea to​ schedule social occasions or​ interactions on that day, so you can eat Grandmas apple pie, or​ have some pizza and ice cream with the guys during the big game. It’s best to​ schedule the High Calorie day on a​ rest day and be sure to​ consume as​ many calories as​ you can.
 
Keep in​ mind that you start in​ the morning of​ your rest day and you stop in​ the evening. So you keep the time frame down to​ about 18 hours, as​ this will ensure no fat will be gained.
 
It is​ a​ good idea to​ start with fats in​ the morning first so that you dont experience too much digestive discomfort. Its also a​ good idea to​ double or​ triple your enzyme intake for the high calorie day as​ well as​ on the juice fast day for maximum absorption of​ nutrients.

Why The Cycle Diet Works
The Cycle diet works because of​ the 3 basic reasons
1Short time frame of​ high calorie consumption
2The initial caloric deficient state sets up a​ super compensation state
3A rigorous training schedule which creates stimulus for fat loss and muscle gain
The bottom line is​ once you get the protocol down to​ suit your own metabolism its pretty much impossible for your body to​ add body fat.
The cascade of​ anabolic hormones during the brief high calorie intake will be used to​ fill up energy stores and build more muscle. This is​ the ideal condition for growth of​ muscle tissues to​ occur. Many athletes are shocked by the giant leaps in​ muscle size, leanness, and muscularity that occur while on the cycle diet for a​ few months.
Fine Tuning The Process
You will need to​ finetune the process over time but its pretty simple once you get the routine down. Best of​ all you dont have to​ restrict calories for long periods of​ time. Once every week you get a​ break and the juice fast day helps clear out any plaque built up form the high calorie day.
Most athletes find the cycle diet much easier and more a​ more fun way to​ stay in​ shape all year. What’s even better that Natural Athletes everywhere can build can build mass while staying lean year round and stay healthy. No harmful chemicals or​ ​Drug​s needed.
Who said you cant have your cake and eat it​ too!
