Burn the Fat - A Very Successful Week of Fat Burning

Well it was a very successful week for me on this Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle program.
After two weeks of getting my calorie requirements tweaked for fat loss based on my activity level, I seem to have hit the magic number.

During week two, I gained 1 pound of lean muscle while during this past week, week 3, I dropped 2.5% body fat and 6 pounds of fat while gaining 1 more pound of muscle in the process.

I had the week off from weight training in what my trainer calls a “transition” week between programs. I took the opportunity to do a bunch of extra cardio which resulted in 14 hours worth. I did 1 hour of HIIT in the am before breakfast (see this article on morning cardio) and then another 1 hour of HIIT in the evening.

Worked in one cheat meal of pizza , ok, pizza and a half. I almost never do pizza, but once or twice a year and all the variables happened to coincide so I did it. The variables were it being a re-feed day and it fell on a weekend. For more about what a re-feed day is and learning your caloric needs for your bodytype, have a look at Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle.
