Step 1 Some Essential Tools (recommend read first)

How can you lose weight fast? This article from Authority Nutrition offers “science based” answers:

How to Lose Weight Fast: 3 Simple Steps, Based on Science

You can read it if you like, but I’ll cover EET’s opinion of the 3 simple steps (4 actually) here and why they are not required or even recommended as part of EET’s Crash Diet.

Step 1 Cut Back On Sugars and Starches

Why not a requirement/recommendation on EET’s Crash Diet?

  1. It’s not absolutely necessary to safely lose weight fast.
  2. Most people love sugars and starches and that all but guarantees that any fast weight loss achieved using this method will be gained back and then some.

Step 2 Eat Protein Fat and Vegetables

Why not a requirement/recommendation on EET’s Crash Diet?

  1. You’re going to eat sugar’s and starches (carbs) sooner or later. Therefore eating fat will make you fat
  2. There is no chance of successful fast weight loss that can last eating foods you don’t enjoy, so enjoyment level of any foods on your diet must to be the focus.
  3. Step 2, as written, is a demand to eat these types of foods. Demands always fail in diets. Always.

Step 3 Lift Weights 3 Times Per Week

Why not a requirement/recommendation on EET’s Crash Diet? Here’s a partial list….

  1. Again, we’re talking about losing weight fast and keeping it off. This Step is laughable for 90+% of the population who have no interest in weight lifting or actually hate it.
  2. There’s a great deal of evidence that indicates strength training, while offering many positive benefits, will have just as much chance of creating weight gain as weight loss, both short and longer term.
  3. EET would never force exercise a certain number of days per week
  4. EET would never forced a particular method of exercise
  5. There’s a higher risk of injury weight lifting than with many other forms of effective exercise
  6. EET would never recommend a blanket limit to the number of days you’ll consider exercising.

Step 4 Do A Carb Re-Feed Once A Week

Why not a requirement/recommendation on EET’s Crash Diet?

  1. This sets you up to enjoy your life more on “re-feed” (aka Binge) days than on days you’re focused on weight loss. A strategy with a nearly 100% failure rate for the population at large.
  2. Using terms like “off” days and “cheat” days (both of which are used in the article) are very harmful psychologically as they imply there are good and bad, healthy and unhealthy ways to eat, and that’s simply not true.
  3. This is definitely not a solution for lasting weight loss but it’s also hardly a recipe for fast weight loss either as you might regain everything you’ve lost each refeed day.
  4. The clear implication of refeed days is you are going to stick with your fast weight loss diet for weeks, months or longer. That it’s possible to make this approach your “lifestyle” with a weekly refeed day. That is inconsistent with well established science by any definition, especially for obese people with BMI > 25.
  5. Refeed days are either frustrating in they must be carefully managed, or stressful when they get out of control. At their worst, they can results in illness (acid reflux, IBS) or eating disorders (Binge Eating, Bulemia).

There you have it. EET doesn’t require a single concept that experts claim is necessary for fast weight loss. We told you our Crash Diet is different. Study EET’s Crash Diet Steps 1 and 2 if you’re serious about successful crash dieting for lasting results.
