If you seek to lose fat, here is what you need to know:
1. Quantity Matters (How Much You Eat)
It is an incontrovertible fact of nature, the law of thermodynamics. It cannot be ignored, overruled, or negotiated. It is as undeniable and eternal as gravity; and to think you’ll lose weight without an energy deficit is as silly as to jump in the air, flap your arms, and expect to fly.
2. Quality Matters (What You Eat)
No one can deny, certainly not I, the effect that eating poisonous food has on your body—particularly, the effect it has on your hormones. What you eat either nourishes you deeply and seeks to restore balance, or it harms you subtly at the cellular level and sooner or later forms a level-4 metabolic shit storm.
3. The Intensity of Movement Matters
To maximize fat loss you need to explore all the various intensities of movement and exercise—high, medium, and low. The best ranges, particularly for fat loss, are the high and the low ends. The medium, too, still has a useful purpose—but if fat loss is what you seek then focus on the two furthest ends of the spectrum. Think sprinting and brisk walking.
4. The Frequency of Movement Matters
As a rule, it is generally better to move more frequently than you eat. But the frequency of a movement should also be the inverse of its intensity. That is, the more intense an endeavor, as a rule, the less frequently you should entertain it, as well the other way around. For example, sprint every now and then (1-2x week), but brisk walk as much as possible (everyday).
[You could also say this about food, really… As the frequency at which you eat a food should be the inverse of its intensity as well. That is, if a food is more energy dense, eat it less often (think sweet potato, and sweet fruits). If it is less energy dense, eat it more often (think spinach, kale, broccoli).
Now, let’s see if I can’t trim some of the fat off this post…
The Lean Version: Eat meat, leaves, and berries, and sometimes fast; lift heavy, sprint; go for a walk.

PS – Big things and changes coming to the Inner Circle next month, including my One Meal a Deal program. This is going to be radically different, with the tweaks I’ve made. Not for the faint of heart, or people who can’t stand the taste of spirulina–but disgustingly effective.
