She visited The Couch to fill us in on three simple steps to follow for two weeks for ultimate weight loss. You can do anything for two weeks, right?

Step 1: Displace calories and boost your metabolism as soon as you wake up every day drinking a complete protein shake.

Drinking a protein shake within 30 minutes of waking up stops cortisol from rising, making it easier to melt the fat you’re storing around your mid section. This step also makes it easy to lower calories while providing solid nutrition so you don’t have to make any decisions, no cooking and you start losing weight right away while you’re learning how to eat for weight loss.

Step 2: Exercise daily in a metabolic fashion to boost your metabolism.

This helps you burn more fat and calories all day long without stimulating your appetite.Metabolic workouts combine a precise weight training routine that works your whole body in 30-40 minutes without resting along with a cardio activity like walking on a treadmill or biking.

Step 3: Eat at specific times to create a Metabolic Fast each night.

If you begin eating at 5 a.m. be sure stop eating at 5 p.m. Basically, you’re eating every 3 hours getting all of your meals in a 12 hour window of time. This provides a 12 hour fast each night to maximize your metabolism. Its the best way to melt ab fat because it lowers blood sugar and forces your body to burn fat for fuel.
