In this video series, I show you how to lose 24lbs in one day without doing anything dramatic. Just abiding by one simple rule of biology, I lost the weight in no time. In fact, this biological law is the same one everyone has ever used to lose weight.
Most people think about calories. Calories are as good of an explanation for biology as dollars are an explanation for economics. Both calories and currency are used in description of transactions. However, descriptions are not explanations. Someone ate more calories than she burned, and so she has excess energy stored: true. Jeff Bezos saved more dollars than he spent, and so he is the wealthiest man on earth: true. But neither of these transactional descriptions are sufficient explanations. They are true; but they fail to give us any useful information.
Last month I created the following videos to point out both the simplicity of weight loss and the absurdity of getting bent out of shape about fluctuations of 5-10lbs. People will emotionally grapple onto a single pound of weight up or down, or a little unfamiliar tightness in their clothes, and take this as some sort of longterm feedback. That is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS once you even have a modest understanding of how the body works.
In these videos I'm already a little dry. My body weight was between 240 and 245 up until the night before I took the first video. I was down to 235 when filming it, which put a little damper on things, because I was hoping to show a 10-20lb net fluctuation without anything drastic. Nonetheless, as you can see, I show you a 5lb net loss (24lb gross loss) in the matter of hours, doing no exercise and no supplements, and just eating and drinking mostly the way I normally do.
There is no magic.
In the period of time these videos cover, I added about 16lbs of water and over 3lbs of food to my body, but ended up 5lbs lighter. I forgot to mention that I threw back piles of sea salt as well. How exactly, then, did I have a gross total weight loss of 24lbs in 24 hours?
How is this possible?
What is the key?
Suppress insulin. It is, by definition, pro-inflammatory. It grows you. If you're an adult who doesn't train intensely 2-6 hours per day every single day, which tissue do you think is going to grow? People who fail to manage stress have rampant insulin production. People who fail to reduce food adequately have rampant insulin production. People who eat too many carbs for their body mass, activity level, and intensity have rampant insulin production. Insulin grows fat. And having excess body fat increases insulin. It's a vicious cycle. Insulin retains sodium. Volatile insulin prevents fat loss. Volatile insulin prevents weight loss. It makes you hungry. It makes you grow. It makes you consume more energy than you burn. It's a trap which prevents deficit. It prevents loss.
