The 4 Cycle Solution is a precision-based, dieting focused program. The human body has an ability referred to as adaptive response and this program’s theory works on resetting it. The adaptive response means that your body adapts to the changes to you do it. So if you reduce your caloric intake, your body stores more fat as a counter measure. Your body basically thinks you are starving. If you have tried dieting and ended losing a few pounds and then stalling or even gaining more wait, this is probably one of the reasons why that happened. This program works by resetting the metabolic rate allowing your body to burn through the fat that’s been stored. This allows you to burn fat faster and your metabolic rate will go up allowing you to incorporate higher calorie foods as you progress with the program.
Product Details and Features
The program comes as package that can be bought off the 4 Cycle Solution website that contains the 4 Cycles Solution in eBook format. It is also comes with a video version of the program as well as 4 other guides to help you through your weight loss journey. As the name suggests, the 4 Cycle Fat Loss Solution is broken into four phases. The cycles have to be followed in the correct order but you can repeat the whole program over and over until you reach your ideal weight or dimensions. The four cycles are:
- 7 Day Carb Depletion – This is the first cycle of the program and starts by prepping your body for the changes that are about to come. When we don’t burn the carbohydrates we consume, they are stored as glycogen which will overtime be converted into body fat. Step one of this program is empty your carbohydrate stores and this will force your body to turn to burning body fat for energy. This cycle lasts only a week and any longer can have a negative effect on your body. The meals in this cycle are low carb, high protein and high veg. There is also a workout component involved in this cycle.
- Macro Patterning - In this cycle you re-introduce carbs in your eating regime since your body is now using body fat as its energy source. This tried and proven method was developed by weight-loss guru, Wendy Chant. It covers the right preparation, combination and timing of carb based meals. It will also optimize your hormones to speed up maximum fat loss. The beauty of Macro Patterning’ is that you don’t experience the muscle loss that is known to happen when you follow a low-carb diet.
- Accelerated Fat Loss – This cycle is designed to counter the adaptive response that body will start to experience. This cycle concentrates on working the blood sugar, glycogen, calories and nitrogen levels. It beats the weight loss stagnation and weight gain some people experience when they diet.
- The Diet Break – This is the final cycle and you finally have a get a reprieve from the strict dieting. Basically, you get to gradually return to your regular diet without packing on the pounds. It allows you up your caloric intake back to normal without any adverse effects. This means that you will be able to restart the program if you haven’t reached your desired weight goal. It lasts for 2 weeks. It even allows you to incorporate small amounts of alcohol which was completely cut in the first three cycles.
