Today we kick off a new series designed to help you get the most weight loss out of the use of diet pills. (A word on site updates – we are prepping a lot of new tools and material for the next month, so for now, we will update the site on Tuesday and Friday)

With a longevity focus you don’t use diet pills in the same way you would with a weight loss focus.  This is a good thing since the reason for the longevity focus is to avoid what you don’t want – short term weight loss that causes long term weight loss problems.

I’m not against diet pills. They are fantastic tools for weight loss.  I’m against their improper use.

The improper use of diet pills can be very harmful to your long term weight loss. What you really need to know is this…

What type of pill do you need for your weight loss circumstances?

When to use diet pills for weight loss and when not to use them..

How to use diet pills in conjunction with diet and exercise to get the best weight loss results.

So let’s get started. First, let’s look at what type of pill do you need for your weight loss circumstances.

Today we will look at the first 2 scenarios and what mix of ingredients fits your situation best.

SCENARIO 1: Your have a hectic schedule, you have not been exercising, you want to lose 5 to 20 pounds rapidly.
Before I tell you how to go about this, let me first say starting your weight loss with a diet pill is not ideal. That being said, the real driver here is your schedule. We can get the fat off, but eventually you need to get into longevity-based fitness (shameless book plug: The LookCut Way is coming very soon)

Recommended diet pill: Your best bet is a good thermogenic. While the current fad is to medicate hunger, (which I don't think is a good idea) your hectic schedule will actually help us in that regard. With a few dietary changes,  the trick is to let your task driven, busy schedule work as an asset instead of a weight loss liability.

What I am going to have you do is make a few dietary mods and do 8 weeks of an ephedrine alternative type pill.

A thermogenic diet pill looks to increase your metabolic rate. You have an 8 week window to get the most out of this before you need to go off of it entirely. What you will want is something that mimics the ECA (ephedra, caffeine, aspirin) stack.

Primary recommended ingredients: Synephrine (or equivalent), Caffeine, White willow

Recommended secondary ingredients: Octopamine, evodiamine, vinpocetine, 5-htp.

Recommended additional supplements: L-carnitine, coq10, and a good essential fat product

Dietary Modifications: Do 4 basic dietary modifications. These will have a tremendous impact.

Don’t eat ANY processed carbs. If you can’t pick it off of a tree, plant or shrub, don’t eat it. The one exception is Ezekiel bread.  In particular, stay off of sugar drinks.  These things make weight loss literally IMPOSSIBLE.

Eat at least 4 to 5 meals per day. Figure a way. If you need a meal replacement, do it. If you need a meal delivery service, do it. 4 to 5 meals per day. More meals equals more weight loss, as long as you don't eat beyond your base metabolic requirement.

Eat 2 – 3 lunches per week where your substitute essential fats for carbs. My #1 pick is Udo’s oil. Second is extra virgin olive oil. 3rd is Essential Lipids we sell in the store. (For practicality sake, you might need essential lipids in combo with olive oil or udo’s). This is huge. What you will do is substitute 1 teaspoon of these oils for what you would have eaten in carbs. You will eat some kind of protein with this. Practical examples – a chicken breast with 1 teaspoon olive oil, 2 eggs with 1 teaspoon udo’s mixed in, Tofu with extra virgin olive oil…you get the idea.

Don’t overeat.  Don’t overeat at any given meal. Don’t overeat for the day. Stay within 100% of your base metabolism.

Also, don’t medicate hunger. The extra fats and lack of super sugars will take care of part of the hunger signaling. The roughage and volume from natural carbs will do the rest. Do this exactly as I lay out here along with your thermogenic supplement for 8 weeks and your weight loss results should be satisfactory. I recommend Cellucor D4 extreme as your thermogenic. It’s the one I use and outside of pure ephedra, which is not legal for weight loss, it’s as good as any weight loss thermogenic you can find.
SCENARIO 2: You have been dieting and exercising for a while and you are stuck at a plateau. You had good results for a while but now you can’t seem to budge the needle of your weight loss.

Recommended Diet Pill:
You need something with cAMP and Green Tea in it. cAMP is Cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate.   Intracellular cAMP levels are a key signaling mechanism for 3 types of very important fat receptors (beta1AR, beta2ar, beta3ar) In other words, cAMP levels are related to burning stubborn fat.  If you have not been on a thermogenic for at least 2 months, you can look at a thermogenic with cAMP in it. If you have, you need to get off of the thermogenics and focus on just cAMP and Green Tea and increasing your circulating fats to kick start the weight loss again.

Additional Supplements: A good efa, L-carnitine, coq10.

Dietary Mods:
You need to increase the fats circulating in your blood. This is also a key trigger in the weight loss process. You need at least 2 days a week for 3 weeks where you limit carbs to 10% of your diet. You will have 40 to 50 percent of your energy intake come from essential fats – omega 3, 6, 9, extra virgin olive oil, avocado, apple butter. The increased fats will stimulate more weight loss.  This is hard to do practically speaking, but if you have made it this far, it’s worth the extra effort for the extra weight loss.
