7 Weight Loss Tips for 7-day Fat Loss Plan

Here's your 7-day fat loss plan


Day 1


In today's Turbulence Training workout, choose an alternative form of interval cardio for this workout.


For example, if you are a beginner, and you have been doing only walking for cardio, try and use the elliptical machine or stairmaster today. This is called cross-training and helps avoid overuse injuries caused by doing the same thing over and over again when you aren't prepared for it. If you are advanced, try some of the bodyweight circuits in place of running or cycling intervals.


To do bodyweight circuits, pick 3 lower body and 3 upper body exercises, and alternate between them. Do 10 reps of a lower body

exercise, then 10 reps of an upper body exercise, and so on.


Go through the 6 exercise circuit 3 times for a 15 minute session.




Day 2


Between Turbulence Training workouts, take a day off from the gym.


On your off days, your exercise requirement is just 30 minutes of fun activity. It can be traditional cardio, sports, or bodyweight exercise.


In addition, you need to clean out cupboards. Do NOT be afraid to throw out food - if it's garbage food, it's better in the trashbin
than in your fat cells.


After you have cleaned out your pantry, prepare a healthy shopping list. Complete a 7-day food entry and identify your trouble spots. Then organize your shopping list to provide solutions to your eating problems.




Day 3


Back to your regularly scheduled Turbulence Training workout.


Since we've been inspired by the 300 Movie Workout lately, I want you to make a small change to your workout today and reduce the rest intervals between sets. For today only, take no more than 30 seconds rest between exercises. Get your workout done in record time.


Do a full warm-up before training though, of course!

Day 4


Another off-day from the gym (whether you train at a mega-gym or in the comfort of your own home gym). Choose an activity and have at least 30 minutes of fun. Yoga is great as well, to help reduce work-related stress.


In addition, let's make one more nutrition change. Today, I want you to eat one new fruit and one new vegetable. If you aren't already eating grapefruit, try one today and see how it helps fill you up because it contains a lot of soluble fiber called pectin.


Add a new vegetable, such as steamed asparagus or broccoli to your dinner.




Day 5

Do your last Turbulence Training workout of the week today. I always like to slip in an extra superset on the last workout of the week. Pick your favorite biceps and triceps exercises and do them back to back for 3 supersets of 8 reps each.


Inject even more fun into your training & reward yourself for all of your hard work.




Day 6


For most of you, this will be the weekend. That means you should have extra time to check in with your social support group.


So why not meet up with a friend that is also trying to lose fat and/or build muscle and talk about what is working for you and where you are struggling. Essentially, its your fat loss mastermind group!


As part of your meeting, choose a fun activity that you both want to do for at least 30 minutes. Make this activity-based meeting a
regular habit on the weekend.




Day 7

Get an early start on the day with 30 minutes of a fun activity - and yes, walking around shopping can count towards your 30 minutes of activity - and then prepare your meals for the rest of the week.


Plan, shop, & prepare for the week ahead. Make sure to include 1 new fruit and 1 new vegetable on your grocery list.


Getting this done early allows you to spend the rest of the day outdoors, or going to church and socializing with friends after, or
spending the better part of the day with your family.


Remember that Turbulence Training is all about creating the optimal fat loss lifestyle - giving you more fat loss results in less workout time while freeing up your life to spend doing the things you love with the people you love in the body that you love!


Have a great week!
