Although many reviewers have described Joel Marion’s Xtreme Fat Loss Diet as a weight loss program which is designed to be used by the masses interested in losing weight, this may not be applicable in all instances. Its actual design was meant to address certain specific deficiencies in other programs which touted rapid weight loss achievements at the expense of muscle loss. In order to lose weight rapidly and healthfully (i.e. without sacrificing muscle mass) certain criteria must be met so as not to discourage the body’s metabolism from eventually sabotaging the weight that was lost, thus gaining it all back.
The Xtreme Fat Loss Diet is made up of a five-day cycle of diet and exercise which is repeated five times in succession for a total of 25 days altogether. Each of the five days in the cycle is designed to use a unique combination of special fat loss workout techniques and altered eating patterns that help the body boost its metabolism and fat burning hormones, which allows the body to speed up its natural fat burning rate. This has all been determined to be effective based on scientific research and a practical application of the program itself.
This kind of program is optimally utilized by people who either want or need to target the loss of body fat in certain areas of the body, and to accomplish this in the fastest way possible. In this sense, then, the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet is designed for people who are interested in sculpting their body to look a certain way.
Professional models and body builders, in particular, have benefited from using this fat loss program. But then, they are used to working hard for what they achieve in the way of sculpting their bodies, and won’t shy away from the extreme aspects of the program. Others, however, may find these methods to be more extreme than they bargained for.
Casual weight loss seekers should be aware that the suggested workouts themselves will likely be quite challenging in the beginning, as they will entail exercises the intensity of which one may not be used to undergoing. Those who are not prepared to work hard going in should not even consider this program. The workouts are, for the most part, a mandatory part of the plan in order to produce the results it claims to produce.
For those who are able and determined to undergo a program of this extreme, the genius of the plan lies in the synergistic way that the nutritional methods work in conjunction with the workouts. By keeping the body off balance and not able to predict a regular eating pattern, the dietary part of the plan has participants changing between a moderate carb day, a cheat day, a protein day, and a shake day throughout the five-day cycle.
The amount of caloric intake is varied each day to take advantage of the fat burning workouts scheduled for that day. This is why it’s so important to follow through with the exercise portion of the program. It’s designed to maximize the speed of the weight loss effect.
To be fair, Joel claims that some of his friends have use the diet portion of the plan while only instituting a “moderate” level of exercise, and were able to lose as much as twenty pounds in 25 days. Maybe that’s possible for some people; then again, maybe not for everyone. I’m just reporting what Joel himself has claimed. The proof, though, is in the pudding: will it work for you?
What’s good about Joel’s offer is that he gives prospects the option to try the program out first before they pay the full price. Through a special offer, he allows people to download the information for a nominal fee ($5), apply the information, then decide after they’ve used it whether or not it is worth the entire price. That’s a pretty bold stance to take, and may be well worth looking into.
