How to Lose Weight Forever (UP TO 50 LBS FAT!)

How to Lose Weight Forever (UP TO 50 LBS FAT!)


I’ve got to say, Jeff’s been really, really
focused and dialed in for the last year. He’s been training harder than I’ve ever seen. Honestly, I wish I knew what he was doing
it for. Jessie. You want some of this? It’s really good. I should have known. What’s up, guys? Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.com. Finally, 364 days. I made it. I got my carrot cake. I have my cheat meal. Now today I’m going to show you how my cheat
meal – my one cheat meal a year – is exactly what you’re going to need in order to lose,
not 5lbs of fat, but 50lbs of fat. But stick with me. Stick with me because it’s going to be a lot
more doable than you think. You see, that video that I did make about
how to lose 5lbs of fat, you should have learned quickly that nutrition will dictate the body
fat levels that you have, and carry, year round. There’s no secret exercise. There’s no amount of reps that you do of that
secret exercise that can overcome a bad diet. But beyond that, when you need to lose more
than that, when you need to lose up to 50lbs of fat, what is it that you need to do? Well, let’s start where you think I would
start. That is, you’ve got to eat 5oz of broccoli
in the morning, you have to eat maybe 10oz of asparagus for lunch, and you have to eat
a little bit of iceberg lettuce for dinner. Guys, forget all that nonsense. That is not what you’re looking for. That is not what you need to hear. I promise you, I’m going to give you exactly
what you need to hear, and you have to believe me that it is the truth that you need to hear. No recommendation of how to eat like a rabbit
– that’s not what you’re going to need to have in order to be successful because those,
whatever I would tell you to eat, is going to be drastically different than one of my
athletes I’m training. What they would eat in a day to keep them
ripped and lean all year could make you fat. Their activity levels are different, their
dimensions are different, the levels of muscularity are different. We have to give you a strategy, a real world,
real strategy, a no BS strategy that will work for you year round. That’s what I talk about here, on this channel. It’s always been about, not just losing weight,
being lean; it’s about keeping it year round. Guys, I could stand up here – just because
I have a shirt on doesn’t mean I can’t show what I have 365 days a year. Everybody that uses our programs can do the
same damned thing. They don’t just lose weight. They keep it off. They don’t just gain muscle. They keep it. That’s what I think is a huge difference behind
what we do. That’s what I will always preach to you. So what is that truth? What is the real thing you should be seeking? It’s the fact that my cheat meal doesn’t feel
like a cheat meal because once you determine that you actually enjoy the way you’re eating,
then there’s no such thing as a cheat meal. Think about it. the cheat meal mentality is derived from the
fact that you’re cheating away from the thing that you don’t like doing and most of us
are stuck in some eating plan that we don’t like doing. The foods that we’re eating at the moment
are the things that we’re compromising on, that we’re depriving ourselves of, which makes
the cheating stuff more appealing. So what I’m telling you is: stop doing that
to yourself. Stop making yourself feel like you’re craving
the cheat meals because you hate the shit that you’re eating on a daily basis. I never do that. I’ve never done that in my entire life. What I’ve identified, and what I want you
to do is identify meals you actually like. Take meals, start at breakfast. Maybe it’s bacon, egg, and cheese. Maybe it’s a bowl of oatmeal with walnuts,
and brown sugar, and whipped cream. Whatever it is that you like – actually
like – and if you don’t know how to review them yourselves for the nutritional content
– in other words, is it a nutritional meal? Is it nutritious? Is it worth a damn? Especially, does it align with your goals
of building muscle and burning fat? If you don’t know how to do that ask a friend,
or ask somebody else that can do it, or look it up online. You’re going to be able to find the information
about whether that’s a good meal, or not. Once you’ve identified that meal, and it’s
a good one – because there’s always going to be meals that you enjoy eating, I promise
you that – don’t think that you’re only meal option are boiled carrots and steamed
broccoli, and chicken with no flavor. That is so gone. That mentality is so old. That is gone with the Arnold era. You don’t have to do that to even be contest
ready. Some guys would say “Oh, Jeff! You should compete.” Not interested, believe me. But I do carry low enough body fat levels
that I can allow myself to look a certain way, and I don’t deprive myself. Every, single night. Here’s the truth: I eat frozen yogurt every
night. A bowl of frozen yogurt, probably about that
big, with whipped cream on top. I eat carbs like they’re going out of style. I eat pasta, I eat potatoes, I eat big portions
of rice. I don’t really worry about how much I’m
eating. I eat foods that I enjoy and when I do that
– and when you do that – then all of a sudden this ‘cheat’ mentality doesn’t exist. So what happens with the carrot cake? Is that my cheat meal? No, guys. It’s what I choose to eat. When you stop looking at it as this dichotomy
between bad stuff and good stuff, or things I don’t like, and things I want to have;
then all of sudden it doesn’t become anything other than “I just choose to have that.” And I choose to have that on my birthday. Now, could I eat it – I could eat it every
week. I promise you I could eat it every week and
still look the same here. I just don’t choose to do that. I actually enjoy the other foods more. And I feel that the other foods align myself
a little bit better with the goals I’m trying to achieve. You could do the same thing. but the point is this: the sooner you stop
thinking “cheat meals”, the sooner you start thinking “I’m going to choose to have this
because I want to have it”, and the sooner you identify things that you like, that you
can live on, then this is all going to be so damned easy. I promise you. As a matter of fact, when you do make these
changes you’re going to see these changes stick around for the long term. Not just for this little period of time. Not so I could go make a YouTube video, or
cluster a bunch of YouTube videos together where I looked lean and then stop making them
for a few months. None of that. I would be able to stand here, for you guys,
as a leading example of how it’s done, and that you can see that, too. Guess who else is actually doing it? I showed Jessie up here. He’s not doing anything magical. I’m not reserving the tricks for him and keeping
them away from you guys. He’s doing the same damned thing. He’s completely changed the way he eats. It’s become a lifestyle for him. It’s really, really simple. Now I’ll leave you with one last note. If you are the guy who intends to continue
to do what I’m telling you not to do, at least do this. I’m going to give you a tip, too. An actionable tip. If you’re going to have this mentality of
the ‘cheat’ stuff, or the good stuff versus the stuff that’s your diet stuff that you’re
temporarily doing, at least do this: don’t pair two bad ones in a row. Start by doing that. Try to make a good choice, and then your bad
choice. A good choice, and then a bad choice and evaluate
what that does. If you have 50lbs of fat to lose it might
get you down to 35lbs of fat to lose. Just that one change. Now, as you see that happening, you’re getting
encouraged by those results, now say “Well, what if I just string two good meals together,
and then a bad one? And then two, and then a bad one? And then two?” And you drop back down. All of a sudden you’re down 25lbs of fat. Let that be the inspiration for you to start
realizing that the more good choices you make – and I mean good choices that you like
– then the more success is going to be in your future. And the long term success is going to be in
your future, and that’s what it’s all about. Guys, if you’re looking for a plan that lays
it all out, the same thing – no secrets, nothing different, it’s what I do, and it’s
what all the guy son our program do, and it’s how they get success and keep it off – we
lay it all out for you meal by meal, day by day. By the way, I’ll leave you with one other
thing, too. I hear this all the time. “Jeff, intermittent fasting! That’s the way to go!” Maybe it is. Maybe it is for you, but that doesn’t change
any of what I just said. All that’s doing is changing the window in
which you’re eating, but it doesn’t change how you look at food. Think about how you’re eating in that period. Make the choices based on finding food that
fuels you and that you enjoy, and stop thinking about “Oh, I’m going to cheat now.” No. Don’t do that. Don’t do that to yourself. Change your mentality and you’ll change the
way you look, I promise you, year round. The ATHLEANX Factor Meal plan is in our ATHLEANX

helpful and truthful – I’ll always give you the truth guys, you know that, in a helpful,
honest “this is what you need to do” truth – make sure you leave your thumbs up below. Let me know what else you want me to cover
here, in these videos, and I promise you I’ll do my best to do that in the days and weeks

  1. I seriously could not wait around to test the weight loss plan “Yamzοkο Weebly” (Google it). This has given me pleasure. I recommend you to Google this plan as well. My friend has reduced 10 lbs by now because of this fat loss plan. .

  2. Thank u Jeff. I am from Brazil and right now the dollar is too expensive here. But in the near future I find a way to get your program. Love your dedication. God blesses you.

  3. I haven't eaten sweets or fried food for a year now and I still have lower belly fat. I also workout 4 times a week and use sixpack promise app for a year! What am I doing wrong? I can't seem to get rid of the fat on that area…

  4. Take the path of least resistance, eat healthy food that you actually like. If you hate what you're eating, you're not going to make it.

  5. So I want to lose weight and that’s it for right now. I want to be very strong but right now I am fat and I’ve got big man boobs and a huge stomach and I want to deal with that first. So first I am going to be thinking of a workout routine and then think of a diet plan. I am having a big problem with that more because I’m 18 and I live with my parents and I have told them that I want to lose weight and they just don’t care. They have Bought many sugary things and just terrible food. They bought 2 boxes of ready to bake brownies one day, 2 boxes of chocolate muffins the very next day, cake the next day and that was for my graduation so that was ok for me but still, and then ice cream the next day. And everytime they got something desserty I would “yell” at them telling them that they should not be buying all of these sweets not only for me but for them too. So that’s a problem I’m having but once I figure out the diet plan I am usually able to stick with it and then workout 5 times a week. Mostly aerobic exercises

  6. sorry for that i watched the video twice and i really do not understand your first tip. Is it to change your mindset and the way you think about food?

  7. Great video I go by the 80/20 rule. As long as I make healthy choices 80% of the time, I am happy with it and don't feel guilty about the tasty unhealthy choices I make 20% of the time. Just this alone has changed my relationship with food so much and I often go lower than 20% with unhealthy choices.

  8. I lost the most weight just eating healthy stuff I like. Everyone acted like it was some sort of secret trick, no, eat good stuff you like! Even now. I don't count calories, I eat good stuff till I'm full when I'm hungry.

  9. This is the ONLY fitness you tube channel to watch if you want honest, proven information (FOR FREE) that you can take to the gym! Thank you Jeff for provided such an excellent resource!

  10. I have lost 80lbs. I fast 16 hours and prefer to eat food on my blood type only. I love carrot cake, plums,bananas, and strawberries and walnuts, and green beans, and wild caught fish. So I will eat my favorites and see what happens. I will just eat of my favorites for fruit, sometime just smaller amounts😊

  11. Lol I've realized that I may never be able to give up bad choices so I just try to make as less bad choices as I can.

  12. Soo mostly what I eat everyday is eggs, toast(sumtimes) for breakfast and milk with coffe and 3 spoons of suger :/. Then till 7 I don’t eat much of anything except sum water and something milk and coffe. For dinner I usually eat rice tomato’s with salt some kind of meat and yea then more of the coffe and milk. LOL I’m addicted:(. If your wondering I’m Cuban so that’s what my family mostly eats for diner and lunch. U don’t really have that much food in my house … yet I’m still fat.. I just wanna know if that’s any good I also sumtimes workout with weights or hit for 30 mins

  13. I have tried every fat loss guide and this plan to lose weight “Yamzοkο Weebly” (Google it) is the one that is effective for me combined with their own products to burn fat. Even I am not consuming much as I used to be, I still don’t really feel jittery or sense a crash I have burn about 15 lbs since applying this product. .

  14. my wife keeps bringing home dark chocolate and halva, roasted nuts, loads of cheese….and all that shit is just so tempting to me. i can stay away for like 3-4 days and then I think I have been good and I will have some…..but always ends up me over eating. i have talked with her many times, but she just keeps bringing it home and says I am weak.

  15. When I am on diet my whole family will eat rubbish and when I quit dieting they will start dieting😑

  16. I went to a cookout and a birthday party over the course of the last two weeks. I had birthday cake and burgers and hot dogs and ribs and fried chicken and pizza and I felt like it didn’t effect me because I did everything else right, namely, my nutrition and workouts, other than those two meals (I also didn’t have huge portions during those cheat meals).

  17. Another great video. Enjoy what you eat and try to make it healthy. It is your choice. Why workout to lose weight only to ruin all that by eating poorly.

  18. I`ve been making use of this weight loss program “Yamzοkο Weebly” (Google it) for some weeks at this point and until now I love them! They offer me plenty of strength and also reduce my desire for food, however I don`t quit whenever they wear off which I really like, and they also don`t make me jittery. I did nothing special on my very own diet regime and i also still manage to get rid of my unwanted weight to 7 lbs. .

  19. I'm currently making a lot of health changes in my lifestyle and I must have watched a million BS fitness videos (had no idea of the whole internet fitness industry…I'm an old…sry) this friggin channel is so amazing. I was ready to give up and pull out an 80s Joe Weider book I have somewhere in the basement before I found this WEALTH of sensible knowledge. Just a long winded thanks as I go through the back catalog Jeff and crew. Sincerely.

  20. Hmm, if I lose 50 pounds of fat I’d probably die weighing in under 100 pounds being 21. Don’t always listen to Jeff.

  21. What alot of people dont realize is calories are calories regardless of what you're eating. You can eat 3000 calories worth of chicken,broccoli,and rice everyday and not lose as much weight as you would eating 2000 calories of taco bell. If you have high intensity exercise with those 2000 calories you will still lose weight. Because at the end of the day, calories are still calories.

  22. This guy is great, I lost more than 50 pounds, in a year! I started at 91kg in June 2018 and today I weigh 64kg! It all because of you Sir!!

  23. When i had revealed this fat loss program “Yamzοkο Weebly” through Google, I felt thrilled to give it a try right away. I was certainly excited. My friend shed 10 pounds immediately after this specific weight loss program, I actually propose you search Google to find out how. .

  24. Jeff I can't remember what the exercise was called but it was having your back to a chair and your hands on the seat. Then making the motion up and down with your arms. I'm not doing that exercise with the chair, however I'm building a house and I am standing between two sheets of plywood using them as a form to build a rammed Earth home. To get out of the form I've been making almost the same motion as the exercise you describe NOT TO DO if you have torn rotor cup. I just wanted to back you up and say that you were right. It's been grinding away at the inside of my left rotor cup and is very sore now. I remembered the episode and I have quit doing so is there another exercise that I can do to help build it back?
    All of us men with this problem should heed to his wisdom!!! Thank you for your videos… I was skin and bone and now once again my arms look near what they were when I was a young man I am now 66 years old

  25. Hi Jeff! I have been following your channel for a few months now as I had started working in a hospital with a sedentary setting. Fortunately the PT unit downstairs had been kind enough to let me use their workout equipment during lunch break! Is there a good routine you'd recommend for legs using low weights? I also wanted to know what your thoughts are for a "safe" average fat intake is for women in their 20s.

    I've come a long way since I have started lifting weights at 15, and I can proudly say this is my 5th year going on, as I have figured out my clean eating lifestyle I can also stick with! Thanks for all of the advice and support.

  26. I’ve tried dieting and eating healthy and the gym but it’s given me little results idk what else to do. Any suggestions?

  27. Jeff you seriously have inspired me….i put on some weight after a back surgery….i have 6 ruptured discs and 2 compression fractures…..so its hard for me to weight train i make due with what i can…..but i wanted to email you to ask your opinion as a physical therapist and trainer as to what your advice would be…..because i need to shed a good 60 lbs

  28. I lost 48 pounds in 20 weeks and going. I simply cut out sugar, junk and fast food. I also walk alot. Haven't even hit the weights yet and fat melted off of me

  29. meals I truly enjoy, not sure if they’re any good:

    -whole milk plain greek yogurt, some chia seeds, plenty of blueberries and raw honey (optional)
    -microwave oatmeal, peanut butter (my grocery store has a machine that grounds it), 75% dark chocolate chips (baking isle/optional)
    -canned chunk tuna in water not oil, walnuts, flax seed, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, onion, regular mayonnaise, pepper on wheat toast (sometimes i’ll do one slice) i’d like to try ezekiel bread
    -chicken breast broken into thick stands (if you’re in a time pinch maybe just get a Rotisserie chicken and peel the skin off?) lemon pepper seasoning, half a potatoes with skin, peas
    -steak, Puréed sweet potato with cinnamon and walnuts, half a baked onion in olive oil and seasoning

    I’m a work in progress. Hope these work for you

  30. I really like your philosophy, it mirrors the one I've been trying to implement of enjoying what you do instead of planning to deprive yourself cuz from personal experience, you always end up worse than where you started off. Nice to have my feeling backed up by someone who obviously knows what they're talking about.

  31. Jeff, I did everything I was supposed to no bad stuff and worked out and I only 1lb 6 oz. To me that don't sound good but maybe I'm wrong. Please advise.

  32. Enjoy your life, i agree jeff… torturing yourself when you cant handle the situation… mean yoh not smart… eat what you like, and diet!!!

  33. Guys, if you love to eat junk food and fast food then you probably have serious issues. He forgot to mention that but just saying for the trolls.
