Weight loss is one of the most googled words on the planet. Weight loss has been featured on TV shows like, “The Biggest Loser” where the idea of losing overall weight is the focus. Millions of people have gone all-in on weight loss programs to lose weight. Unfortunately for many, they don’t get the look they desire, and a majority of people actually putting the weight back on – or end up heavier than ever before. The reason a majority of people who use weight loss plans to lose weight are never able to permanently keep the weight off is because they focus weight… not fat!
The Scale Can Be Your Worst Enemy
One of the biggest ways you can sabotage your goals to enhance your physique is to measure your progress with numbers on a scale. A weight scale only shows your overall weight and does not show the ratio of muscle loss and fat loss. Many weight loss programs involve a lot of cardiovascular exercise and low caloric diets that reduce muscle mass as well as fat. This can create a smaller, “skinny fat” version of yourself instead of shaping your physique. In order to shape, firm, and reduce the overall size of your body you must maintain and or gain lean muscle mass. Increasing the amount of lean muscle mass in your body drastically increases your body’s ability to burn calories and shrink your waist, butt, and thighs.
Let’s look at Apex client Tami Bates.
When Tami Bates first came to Apex she had been on a slew of weight loss yo-yo diets and programs. No matter what she did, she could never maintain her physique. She made it known to us that she was not going to give up drinking wine and eating loose on the weekends – since she and her husband spent time together enjoying their boat with their friends at the end of each week. When Tami First came to Apex she weighed 137 pounds. What’s important to know is of Tami’s 137 pounds, 86 pounds were muscle and 51 pounds were fat. Tami partook in an Apex regimen with a personal trainer, certified in Apex’s proprietary Bionetic muscle building methods. This program was 3 times per week at Apex and she followed an Apex meal plan where her macronutrients during the week were geared toward meeting the current metrics of her body. Tami followed this protocol during the week and allowed herself to eat and drink whatever she wanted on the weekends. In 77 days, Tami’s DEXA scans showed that she had lost over 20 pounds of fat and gained 10 pounds of lean muscle. The increase in lean muscle more than doubled the number of calories her body burned naturally in a day and drastically tightened the shape of her physique. Tami lost 3 inches off her waist, 3 inches off her butt and hips, and 2 inches off each thigh.
Tami has used the fat loss and muscle gain tools she learned at Apex to maintain her physique while eating and drinking whatever she wants on the weekends. Learning the proprietary Bionetic mechanical loading techniques of Apex has helped her maintain her lean muscle mass and keeping her fat burning furnace high.
