Are you tired of counting calories to lose weight, only to have the pounds pile back on the minute you slip up? Here’s why you’ve been having trouble: most diets tend to restrict both calories and pleasure. When we are deprived of our favorite foods, we are much more likely to fall off the weight-loss wagon. Fortunately, a solution has arrived. The Metabolic Loophole Diet will provide you with a unique program for weight loss that is safe, effective, and easy to follow. Drawing upon current scientific research, Matthew Ryncarz shows you how to take advantage of a natural loophole in your body’s metabolism—a loophole that will allow you to eat anything you want while dropping pounds, burning fat, and gaining lean muscle. By exploiting the metabolic loophole, Ryncarz lost over one hundred pounds, changing his life. Now, let him help you change yours!

This book is divided into two parts. In Part One, you will learn why we get fat, why we stay fat, and why most diets fail. Part Two introduces you to the Metabolic Loophole Diet. First, Ryncarz acquaints you with the science behind the metabolic loophole, explaining just how you can get away with eating foods other diets forbid. Then he puts this knowledge to work, outlining a comprehensive plan for weight loss. Diet, fasting, exercise, detoxification, and supplemental techniques are all factored into a carefully calibrated schedule that will maximize your ability to burn fat and keep the pounds off.

So stop pursuing difficult, prohibitive diets that do not help you lose weight. With The Metabolic Loophole Diet, you will be able to obtain the lean, muscular body you have always wanted—without sacrificing the foods you love.

Introduction or preface

You may be thinking, what the heck is a metabolic loophole and how can it help me lose weight? In law, a loophole provides a way for the smart attorney to get around a certain problem.

Well, the metabolic loophole provides a way for the smart dieter to get around the normal problems associated with losing weight. With two in three Americans overweight or obese, and one in five Americans on a diet or otherwise trying to drop some pounds, the metabolic loophole could be an amazing solution for many of us—as it has been for me.

My own struggle with weight started when I was a child and continued through young adulthood. For many years, I weighed well over 300 pounds. I tried anything and everything in my efforts to slim down. I was a classic yo-yo dieter: I would lose weight, only to gain it back the moment I slipped up or phased out of the diet. Desperate to find the answers, I pored over every book and scientific study I could get my hands on. Nothing seemed to be effective—that is, until I made the discovery that changed my life.

This book is about that discovery, and how it can and will change your life, if you are willing to make that change. Here, I will introduce you to the revolutionary concept of the metabolic loophole. The metabolic loophole is a special window of opportunity in each and every day that allows you to supercharge your metabolism and turn your body into a fat-burning machine. I will teach you how to use this loophole to your advantage. Under the metabolic loophole diet, you will be able to eat whatever you want while shedding pounds and gaining sleek, lean muscle. My plan will also enable you to systematically create the physique you have always desired.

Let’s face it, we all want to look good in our bathing suits! But perhaps more important, losing weight will allow you to extend your life and avoid the dangerous and costly health problems that are directly associated with that extra weight you may be carrying around.

Here is how the book breaks down. Part I presents you with the cold hard facts surrounding obesity, weight gain, and weight loss. Chapter 1 acquaints you with my story: how I wrestled with my weight for many years before finally developing a weight-loss system that works. Chapters 2 and 3 examine the current state of affairs: why Americans like me get fat—and stay fat—and why most diets do nothing to help us.

Part II provides a clear and simple explanation of the diet with a difference: the metabolic loophole diet. This two-phase diet is based on my many years of diligent research. Chapter 4 explains the central philosophy behind the diet, describing the scientific principles that allow you to lose weight most efficiently. The next chapters show you how these scientific principles are put into practice. Chapter 5 will tell you all you need to know about Phase 1, in which you will reset your metabolism through a ten-day process called recalibration, completely retooling the way your body burns fat. In Chapter 6, you will be introduced to Phase 2 with an explanation of fasting—a far less daunting practice than most imagine. Chapter 7 outlines the dietary rules you will be following: what you should eat and what you should avoid outside the metabolic loophole. Charts that tally the macronutrient contents of many of the most common foods are provided for your convenience in Appendix I. In Chapter 8, I will show you how you will be working out, and what a typical exercise routine looks like under my plan. I have also included a pictorial guide to some of the basic movements that you will use in your workouts. Finally, in Chapter 9, I will tell you about certain supplements and techniques that will enhance the effectiveness of the metabolic loophole diet.

This year, millions of Americans will go on diets. Some will lose weight and keep it off, while most will lose weight only to fail and gain it back. If you think it’s time to end this vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting, you’ve picked up the right book. I firmly believe that the metabolic loophole diet is the last diet you will ever need, and that those following the metabolic loophole diet can have a 100 percent success rate. My plan for weight loss is simple, flexible, and even enjoyable. It costs nothing to start or to maintain; no fancy prepackaged meals or expensive gym memberships are required. All these factors make the metabolic loophole diet incredibly effective and easy to follow in the long-term. You do not have to be overweight forever. This book will give you the knowledge you need to change your body—and your life!
