Thousands of clients have come to the FASTer Way frustrated, worn out, and flat out hangry. They’ve cut calories, wasted hours at the gym on mind-numbing cardio, and aren’t seeing the results they were promised.
In the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, we are intentional with our nutrition and fitness strategies to burn fat, build lean muscle, and NOT spend hours on a treadmill doing it. FASTer Way to Fat Loss creator and CEO Amanda Tress was recently featured on KTLA to discuss the importance of pairing the science-backed strategy of carb cycling with muscle-building cardio HIIT workouts. Check out the video for the full interview!
Carbs aren’t the enemy. If that surprises you, it’s because we’ve been told for far too long that the only way to burn fat is to eliminate carbs altogether. However, strategically using carbs to fuel your body will improve your overall metabolism and keep those hormones functioning optimally. This is why the FASTer Way to Fat Loss is NOT a low carb diet. While we do have some low carb days in our food cycle, FASTer Way ladies know the joys of regular carb day which comes in the form of our favorite treats!
Carb cycling is an alteration of carbohydrate intake to prevent fat loss plateaus and to keep your metabolism working effectively. Basically, we cycle between low carb days and regular carb days to ensure that our bodies burn fat effectively without causing significant hormonal damage or dips in energy.
Carb cycling has lots of benefits. Here are some of them:
Increased energy levels
A flexible lifestyle that is enjoyable
A nutritional strategy that isn’t too overwhelming or stressful
Strategic Muscle-Building Cardio
While nutrition is the foundation of fat loss, strategic muscle-building cardio will take your results to the next level. In the FASTer Way, we strategically pair our workouts with carb intake. This again turns your body into a fat burner as opposed to a sugar burner, and provides you with enough fuel to keep your energy levels up for tough strength training workouts. We manipulate our carbs to ensure optimal energy levels, while effectively using our glycogen stores to stabilize hormone levels.
When combined with a strategic weight training program, completing cardio in the fasted state will require your body to reach into its fat stores for energy. In addition, a well-planned HIIT workout will not only burn fat while you’re working out, but it will continue burning fat up to 48 hours after your workout!
