Scott, do we need to give up sugar forever if I want to get really lean? I understand that using a zero-carb intake helps with fat burning. However, I have also heard you explain on your videos that certain carbs at the correct times are important for body fat loss as well. ~ Janet and Roy
You can include some desserts without trans fats or preservatives into your Day 22 Carb Load Choices and earn great rates of fat burning. Over the last few years Dr. Eric Serrano MD and I have experimented with countless Day 22 Carb Load combinations with clients to identify new areas of opportunity. The key to success is providing the carbohydrate following 21 Days of 0-carb intake to provide strategic variety for the system. The absence of carbohydrate for 21 Days changes how the metabolism, hormones, muscles and other factors respond to carbohydrate.

Macronutrient Cycling Breaks Metabolic Staleness
Eating the same foods, macronutrient percentages, and meal timing creates staleness pretty quickly which is why most people fail to reach significant fat loss goals. The 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition Plan followed by the Day 22 Carb Load provides the strategic variety necessary to maximize fat burning through several proven pathways. Repeating that cycle four times for a total of 88 days is extremely powerful for fat burning by consistently sending the right body transformation signals to the brain.
A Great Compliance Device
We learned from successful fat loss clients that including a dessert session on the Day 22 Carb Load serves a very powerful compliance device for all other days. In fact it helped many clients be 100% MR compliant during the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse with 0-carbohydrates outside of green vegetables as they looked forward to the Day 22 Carb Load. Of course consistent fat loss progress with high energy as well as easy execution drives great motivation for continued success.
Exercise creates great conditions to drive the right carb sources into hungry muscles to replenish glycogen.
Put the Carbs Into Muscles
Weight training on the Day 22 Carb Load creates metabolic and hormonal conditions that are ideal for carbohydrate consumption especially during the meal following exercise. Muscle glycogen is a stored carbohydrate which is depleted during the 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Nutrition Plan. As a result there is ample space for the muscles to store new carbohydrate consumed instead of spilling over into fat cells to create new body fat.
Dietary Fats and Proteins
Leaner protein choices such as wild caught fish/seafood, free range chicken/eggs are ideal on the Day 22 Carb Load. Go for monounsaturated dietary fats such as extra virgin olive oil from a dark bottle and guacamole. Many clients enjoy a dinner following a Cluster 6 Pause weight training including wild caught shrimp cooked in olive oil, guacamole and rice with butter.
Now is the perfect time to dial in your rapid fat loss nutrition plan as there are fewer distractions with eating out, traveling, social events and commuting. Take full advantage of any extra time and eating at home to make excellent food choices while using the correct strategies.
