6 Pack in 7 Fat Loss Phase

Get ready to kick your fat loss into its final high gear phase.  You’ve done the work, and now you are going to kill this phase like the rock star I know you are!

FIRST: Complete the 6 Pack in 7 Fat Loss Phase assessment

SECOND: Record your measurements

THIRD: Pre plan your macros.  Look for high protein, moderate fat, and low carb options. Strive for 50% protein, 40% fat and 10% carbs.

FOURTH: We are looking to complete no more than 5 days of light to moderate cardio.  We will engage in sprints, long runs, HIIT, and hill repeats. I caution you to listen to your body.  For those of us that require higher carbs to feel energy, you may feel significantly depleted during this phase (especially the first 3 days).  Listen to your body and do not over exhaust yourself. We want to keep our cortisol levels down. We do not want to over train. It will not help your fat loss, but rather hinder it.  Below you will find example cardio workouts. Feel free to be creative and enjoy long runs/walks while you listen to your body.

1 DAY FAST FOOD GUIDELINES

You will consume nothing but water or herbal teas. If you are taking any supplements give your body a break for the day.

HOW TO DO IT: FAST

Your timer started immediately after your dinner last night. For example if you stopped eating dinner at 7, your fast started then. Drink lots of water or herbal tea when you feel hungry (can add lemon to water). Once you reach 7 pm, you’ve made it 24 hours. Have a smoothie or smaller meal to break your fast.
