The Fat Loss WHOOSH

Ugh. I hate seeing a post like this in the TT Member's
forum, but it reminded me that not everyone loses 2-3
pounds per week like our Transformation Champions.

(But there was good news...eventually our member achieved
the controversial, rapid "Whoosh" fat loss effect.)

Here's what happened...

One member, JDS1971, wrote:

"I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm a 6'0,
207 pound, 40 year old male. Last summer I used TT to go
from 207 to 193, but then I fell off track and gained the
weight back.

"I've started TT and a strict diet again (Jan. 2) but after
3.5 weeks there's been no movement on the scale or in
my measurements."

"I'm really discouraged and thought I was doing everything
right, but not getting the results as before. I'm even
lifting heavier weights than last time."


We don't hear this a lot at TT, but I'll be honest, trouble
cases like this pop-up once in a while.

One member, JudgeBill, made an interesting post that
foreshadowed what was to come next. JB said:

"I tend to go through weight loss bursts - i.e. I'll lose 2-3
pounds in 2 days, and then level out. Not entirely sure what
causes them - it's not always tied to diet perfection. Keep
grinding, and you'll probably wake up at 200 soon."

Those fat loss bursts are known as the WHOOSH effect.

Highly controversial and not truly understood, here's what
my friend and extreme fat loss expert John "Roman"
Romaniello said to me about the WHOOSH.

"Even the toughest fat loss plateaus eventually experience
a 'WHOOSH' effect where your body weight rapidly drops. This
happens because of a strange biological twist of fate in your
fat cells.

"During a regular fat loss program, your fat cells, which
normally do not store water, may take in water as the stored
triglycerides are burned through diet and exercise.

"This gives the appearance of a fat loss plateau...which then
can be broken, rapidly, through a couple of diet tricks. You
then experience extreme rapid fat loss at once - thus known
as the WHOOSH effect."

So if you're struggling, do NOT give up.

You could be one WHOOSH away from rapid results.

And so Roman and I put together 3 workouts that will
give you the WHOOSH.


But back to our TT Member, JDS1971...


Eight days after his initial forum post, JDS was back with
this update:

"Well, had my whoosh effect after the change you suggested.
I lost almost 4lbs since Friday. Persistence pays off! I also
experienced a bit more energy and focus during yesterday's
workout after some of the adjustments."


And that's how it goes...when you make small adjustments in
your diet and training that can trigger the fat loss WHOOSH.

YOU too can experience the WHOOSH effect, no matter much you
are struggling with a fat loss plateau.

Don't give up.

Just make this a small adjustment.

Remember, no matter how much you might be struggling now,
you could literally be just one small change away from a big
WHOOSH fat loss result.

Let me know about your WHOOSH,
