The Venus Factor “Reverse Taper Protocol” is a dieting system that is designed in such a way that as you lose weight, the more that you will be able to eat.
It is a very ingenious diet that for 1. Will keep your weight off once you have lost it, and 2. It makes losing weight a lot easier for you. I know it is a paradox, but if you read the following article, it will all become clear and make some sense.
The energy that we use in our bodies is measured in calories. They aren’t physical things that you can see or touch, they are just a way to measure our energy usage, like a centimetre is used to measure length.
The last thing any woman dieter wants is for the weight that has been lost, to be put back on again. The “Reverse Taper Protocol” diet is the complete reverse of other dietary programs in the way that it addresses the problem. As the diet, (12 weeks), comes to a conclusion, you will be eating more calories so that eat the end of the diet, you will be eating at maintenance. That is the amount of calories that you should eat to keep your bodyweight level.
The calories that our bodies need in order to burn to create energy come from two sources.
1. The food that we eat
2. Stored energy in our bodies, usually adipose tissue but sometimes from other tissue.
When we go on a diet, our bodies don’t receive the required amount of calories that they need from the food that we eat, so it starts to use the calories that are stored in our bodies, usually in the fat cells, to make up the calorie shortfall that our bodies use.
The amount of adipose tissue that you have left to lose is related to with the amount of calorie shortage that you must undergo. In other words, if you have a high percentage of adipose tissue, then your calorie intake should be smaller and when you have lost weight and your bodyfat levels are low, your calorie intake must be higher.
There is a formula that the “Virtual Nutritionist” uses that works out the amount of calories that you can eat based on the percentage of adipose tissue that you have.
As an example, say if your daily maintenance calories were 2,000 calories. That is what you can eat for a woman of your height and age every day, that will keep your body at the perfect shape. The “Virtual Nutritionist” works this out for you.
If at the start of your diet your bodyfat percentage was at 40%, you would need to eat less because the bodyfat energy would make up the calorific difference. So maybe, you would need to eat 1,000 calories and your adipose tissue would be used by your body to make up the other 1,000 calories. After 6 weeks your bodyfat percentage went down to 30%, you could eat 1,400 calories and your adipose tissue would make up the other 600 calories. After the 12 weeks, your bodyfat percentage went down to 20%, and you would be eating the full maintenance 2,000 calories per day because your body wouldn’t be using any more of your adipose tissue and you would be at your ideal Venus shape.
One very important thing that the “Reverse Taper Protocol” diet does is keep to the “Optimum Rate of Weight Loss (ORWL)”. If too much calorie deficit occurs, or too many calories are forfeited every day, the body will take calories from other parts of the body, such as the muscles, vital organs or from the blood sugar. It is impossible, without drugs to lose more fat than is achievable. There is a fat loss limit.
If weight loss occurs at too fast a rate, leptin levels drop too much and then the dreaded rebound weight increases will occur. The “Reverse Taper Protocol” overcomes this issue.
Here is a quick summary.
• Synchronises the amount of calories that you should eat to the size of your stored adipose tissue.
• Does away with the exhausted and sluggish emotional states that usually come with crash dieting.
• Removes the threat of gorging and rampant cheat days.
• Safeguards that all the weight that you get rid of is adipose tissue and not from other body tissue.
• Educates you on the way to eat to sustain your new-found, trim body.
• Eradicates the possibility for a massive rebound weight increase.
