Is the 1000 Calorie Challenge a program that you should be using? Is it really a good program for you? In this article, I’ll try to answer this question as best as I can.
What Is the 1000 Calorie Challenge?
It’s a program that is designed to help you burn body fat fast by using strategic low calorie eating coupled with intensive workout days (3 times a week and you burn 1000 calories on each workout). There is a double purpose here:
1. You use intensive workouts and some low calorie days to create a big calorie deficit which causes your body to turn to its energy stores for fuel.
2. The low calorie days and the high intensity workout days are scheduled in such a way to cause your body to turn to your fat stores for fuel instead to your muscle tissue.
I won’t go into the science of how this works. It’s alll explained in the program itself with detailed references to the research that corroborates this method. There’s little doubt that the method is based on things that have been proven to work in research. Let’s focus on the result: a rapid and big fat loss.
The 1000 Calorie Challenge is not your ordinary weight loss diet. It’s a no nonsense program that was made to boost your body’s natural ability to burn fat by increasing your metabolism and strategically manipulate your fat burning hormones to go into overdrive.
However, this isn’t something that you get for nothing. You need to work hard for this to happen. The 1000 Calorie workouts are based on circuits: doing a series of strength exercises without any rest in between. During each workout you will work various muscle groups in your body to give it a full workout experience. The workouts are intensive and challenging. You need to be ready for that and willing to put in the effort.
The good news is that the workouts are not long (an hour or less). In addition, the program comes with a complete exercise library manual with detailed explanations and pictures to show you how to perform each exercise in the right form.
The 1000 calorie Challenge is a program that requires commitment and effort on your part but it also delivers results. If you really want to burn off a lot of body fat fast, then this is a program that you should use.
