Want to know what protein sparing modified fasting is, why people do it, and whether or not you should try it? Keep listening.
You probably know trying to lose weight too fast is a mistake.
You’re going to run into the hurdles of extreme hunger, lethargy, irritability, and the metabolic hobgoblins attendant to all crash diets.
Plus, you’re walking a tightrope where one misstep could lead to a binge that wipes out your progress.
That said, there are advantages to losing fat as fast as possible.
You see results faster in the mirror, you don’t have to diet for as long, and you can get back to building muscle and getting stronger sooner.
If you want to lose fat as fast as possible, though, you need to do it the right way.
The worst thing you can do is follow some half-baked diet like water fasting, the military diet, or a detox diet, which are just forms of reckless calorie restriction in disguise.
Instead, you should follow an evidence-based, structured, effective crash diet that helps you lose fat as fast as possible without losing much muscle.
And the only diet that checks those boxes is known as a protein sparing modified fast (PSMF).
If you want to learn what a PSMF is, why it’s so effective, how it compares to other crash diets, and how to use it to lose fat as fast as possible, keep listening.
