The 4 Cycle Fat Loss Solution by Shaun Hadsall is a program designed to help you lose fat as fast and as effortlessly as possible. The 4 cycles of the system are:
Cycle 1: 7 Day Carb Depletion Diet
Carb are either burned for energy or stored in the muscles as glycogen. In rare cases they may even convert to fat through a process called de novo lipogenesis. This happens if you eat large amounts of carbs or if you lead a very sedentary lifestyle that prevents you from burning carbs for energy. The 7 Day Carb Depletion Diet will help you empty your glycogen stores, which will force the body to start draining energy from body fat. The only problem with the carb depletion diet is that after a while this eating regime can greatly suppress your thyroid hormones and leptin levels. For this reason this phase lasts for only a week. During this cycle you are going to be eating meals rich in protein, vegetables and healthy fats, but very little starch at the end of the week and no alcohol. Even though fats are allowed, it would be a good idea to limit your intake of nuts and nut butter, due to their calorie density.
Cycle 2: Macro-Patterning
In this phase you are going to re-introduce carbs in your eating regime, but you will be taught the right way to prepare them, combine them and time them, so as to optimize your hormones and maximize fat loss. Macro-Patterning will prevent the muscle loss that would occur, if you followed a low-carb diet for an extended period of time.
Cycle 3: Accelerated Fat Loss
This phase has 3 high-carb days, which will regulate your metabolic rate. This cycle manipulated glycogen, blood sugar, nitrogen levels and calories.
Cycle 4: The Diet Break
In this cycle, which lasts for 2 weeks, you will finally have a break from the diet. This means that you will be able to increase your calorie intake and start drinking alcohol again in small amounts.
