This is a bit of a loaded question, much like how long does it take to become a millionaire? No one can give you an exact answer, but you can get a good idea of what it takes by looking at what we’ve discovered below!
Believe or not must of us are not optimized to burn fat. Through our diets, we have caused our bodies to become adapted to have preference to burn sugar over fat. In order to change this, you need to adjust your macros(Fat, Protein and Carbohydrates), to be conducive to using fat as a source of fuel over sugar.
How do we do this? Simple.
Imagine most of your daily caloric intake consisted of carbohydrates. These get broken down into sugar and used as fast fuel by our bodies. Fat on the other hand, takes a bit longer to be processed by the body. When the energy from fat becomes available, we no longer need it and it gets stored.
In order to turn this upside down we need to do one simple thing….
By having less carbs available to your body, it has to look elsewhere for energy. Hello fat!
You body now starts wanting to use fat for fuel instead of sugar. This is the ideal scenario. Once your body is in this fat burning mode you are able to start burning the fat stores off your body. This is a period known as results city. Or happy fun time for dieters.
The pounds begin to melt off of your body and you get the positive feedback you need to continue with this diet.
If you take the process seriously and take control of your diet, you can begin to burn fat in as little as one week. You will likely go through phases of rapid weight loss followed by a plateau, and then back to rapid weight loss.
Don’t get discouraged. This process will continue to repeat until you reach your goals.
So how long does it take?
Short answer: It can start in as little as one week and continue for as long as you want. Just remember to stick with the program. You will be happy you did.
