The Zig Zag diet is determined by following a simple formula. Take the number of calories you should be eating to maintain your weight using a calculator such as that provided by the site Free Dieting. Next, determine your weight-loss goal. A pound of fat requires a weekly caloric deficit of approximately 3500 calories. Using a traditional diet plan, this means eating about 500 fewer calories per day. Using calorie cycling, you will stagger the deficit across seven days, with some days having a higher caloric deficit than others.
You can choose to fluctuate your calorie-deficit days with your high-calorie days any way that works for your lifestyle. For example, you may choose to stagger high-calorie days and low-calorie days so that every second day your caloric intake shifts into high gear. Alternatively you can choose to incorporate two "cheat days" spread apart during the week to jolt your metabolism. If you find figuring this out on your own to be a cumbersome task, you can use an online tool such as the one provided at the Free Dieting site.
There are many individuals within the fitness and weightlifting field who swear by this approach to weight loss and fitness. The theory behind this approach is simple: Your body is prone to homeostasis. The human body is a wondrous thing that will adapt to a diet, the theory being that this is what stalls weight loss for many people who follow low-calorie diets. When you decrease your calories for a low-calorie diet, your body produces hormones to regulate metabolism and lipid oxidation; this process then slows how efficiently your body burns calories. Calorie cycling helps you to avoid this pitfall, tricking your body into staying away from a homeostatic state.
There are many fitness professionals and weightlifters who swear by this approach, providing anecdotal evidence of its success. A study in the September 2010 issue of the "Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition" reports that diet cycling, along with an exercise program, may be an effective way to lose weight. Always check with your physician before starting any new diet or weight-loss plan.


The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling down period in
between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90 second cool down in between
each outburst.
This is the fastest way to lose fat and build muscle in the body. Peak 8 actually stimulates the growth hormone in
the body. I encourage you to visit Dr Mercola’s site to learn more about Peak 8 fitness because I personally feel that
it is one of the best ways to exercise, especially considering the speed at which you can lose fat and build muscle.
I highly recommend you read this article and watch the videos on the page. It will give you all the information you
need to know about Peak 8 – Flood Your Body With This “Youth Hormone” In Just 20 Minutes
What you eat after Peak 8 training does matter
It’s recommended that you do not eat sugar or carbohydrate for 2 hours after the Peak 8 exercise because these
foods can impact the release of the growth hormone in the body. The links are http://www.youtube.com/watch?

Figure your heart rate by this formula
220 minus your age gives you your maximum heart rate. You should try to get your heart rate between 65% and 85% of your maximum heart rate.
You burn 30 percent more fat from doing cardio after a weights session as opposed to cardio on its own.
You can't lose weight by just doing exercise! you need to diet!!
Get the OK from your doctor!!!

Hi.  I am a try-it-all person when it comes to weight loss.  I do early morning walks and night time jogging.  But I don't deny it that I couple my physical activities with a natural weight loss system called Nidora.  It was just given to me by a friend because you cannot buy it in the Philippines.  It's appetite-suppressant so I get to eat strictly 3 meals a day, no in-betweens.

Frist try some exercise and control the food intake. If you not satisfied with that consult a doctor and take some weight loss pills. Whatever you take check the drug carefully.
