The video above explains the Venus Factor diet program, designed especially for women. It is very easy to implement and is not actually a ‘program’, but a very simple strategy for fast weight loss. The little tricks and guidelines in the program can help anyone lose as much weight as they want/need to, regardless if it’s just a few pounds to reveal your abs, or 50+ pounds. In my experience, this is one of very few diets that does not have the ‘rubber-band’ effect and produces very steady, fast and plateau-free results. Although the program is not free, you can try it and always get your money back if you are not satisfied with the result. I’ve personally invested in a ton of diet programs over the years and the Venus Factor is one of the few (sadly) programs that has definitely not disappointed me. I recommend it to all clients who are looking to lose weight and have ‘extracted’ a lot of principles from it (being the nerd that I am) that work very well on their own, like increasing your protein intake, boosting leptin and avoiding rebound weight gain by using metabolic override.
Why does this diet work so well for us women?
We do have some key metabolic differences from men. Although men can lose weight just by restricting calories or intermittent fasting, we have a lot of trouble with this and even a slight caloric restriction can put our bodies into ‘starvation mode’, making us ultimately gain even more fat. Although this can be avoided by increasing your protein intake, there are still a lot of ‘tricks’ that you can use in order to take advantage of your metabolism, all incorporated in this simple diet. Not a lot of people know this, but women actually have a much higher potential for burning fat and can burn fat almost 4 times faster than men. Unfortunately, you will rarely see a diet program that takes advantage of this fact and still focuses on restricting calories and exercising, without any regard for the few key principles, required to achieve a fast weight loss that doesn’t plateau after the first week.
Another major reason why the program produces such fast results in everyone is that it does not require willpower or motivation to implement – a starvation diet or a diet that limits your eating to a great extent will always require you to exert willpower and effort in order to keep sticking to it. This is usually why it fails.
The Dangerous Path of Following an Ineffective Diet
Most people think that if they try a diet and it doesn’t work, there’s no harm done – they just wasted a bit of time. Unfortunately, this is not true. I have seen countless people give up and really convince themselves that it’s their genetics that are holding them back, just because they have tried too many ineffective and not-working diets. Once you have tried a few diets and gotten no results form them, you are very unlikely to put a 100% in the next diet you try. It’s a very dangerous downwards spiral. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen someone who is convinced that it’s their genetics that are stopping them lose 20, 30 or 50 pounds in a staggering amount of time, just by sticking to an effective diet. Genetics will make you gain unwanted fat, but they have no power to stop you from losing all of it, once you are eating right.
Hard is Not Always Effective
Many people think that a diet works, just because it is hard and difficult to follow. This is completely false. If you were to not eat anything for a month, you will quickly gain all the lost weight plus a lot more as soon as you start eating again. On the other hand, once you cleanse your liver and start eating in a way that enables your body to get rid of the excess fat, the results will be much faster than starving and will stick. The no-think diet is a very good example of a diet that does not require any willpower or ‘motivation’ to follow, yet delivers extremely fast and noticeable results. The same applies to working out and exercising – extremely exhausting and calorie-consuming workouts rarely lead to very fast weight loss an can actually have the opposite effect.
Well, that’s about it! Make sure you are sticking to a good and effective diet that is proven to work!
