The best way to lose 5 pounds of body fat is a question that I get almost every day. People want to know if burpees are the best exercise for getting the job done. Others want to know if battle ropes or even jump rope are better at burning calories and burning fat. While all of them are at the top of the list for the most calories burned on a minute per minute basis, they still are not the best way to lose five pounds of body fat the fastest.

In this video, I show you how you can never outtrain a bad diet. If you refuse to pay attention to the quality of your nutrition and the foods you put in your mouth you are never going to have the low levels of body fat that you desire long term. Sure, anyone can follow a short term diet that allows them to lose fat for a few weeks however if you can’t keep it up then you will never be satisfied with your body fat levels over the course of the year.

Mistakenly, people look to exercises as the best way to drop body fat. While you definitely need to train, achieving fat loss is and always will be better accomplished via the right nutrition plan. This goes back to the comment about never being able to outtrain a bad diet. You simply cannot make up enough calorie burn via exercise (even the most intense) to overcome bad food choices. For instance, our very own Jesse is a big sugar fanatic and a worshiper of gummy bears. Just 17 measly gummy bears has 150 calories. Even if Jesse were to do 10 minutes straight of high effort high intensity burpees, he would only burn 120 calories and he would lose that battle with a net calorie gain of 30.

Now Jesse, being a hardgainer, is not concerned at the moment with his body fat levels. He was the only one wiling to do the burpees while I talked during the video being the good sport that he is. If you are looking to burn 5 lbs of fat however, you need to be sure that you are paying attention to what really matters. Your nutrition will always be at the top of the priority list for getting that job done.

Now, does that mean that conditioning exercises like burpees, jump rope, battle ropes and split squat jumps don’t have a place in your workout program if you need to lose fat? Not at all. In fact, with a good nutrition approach in place these exercises become even more effective since they compliment the losses that you are already making because of your improved diet. Not just that, each of these exercises helps to improve your stamina, work capacity, endurance, power endurance and your heart.

If you are looking for a way to improve your nutrition and get it locked in almost effortlessly 365 days a year, then head to and get one of the ATHLEAN-X Training Systems that best fits your goals. If pure fat loss is at the top of your list then you should opt for Max Shred. If, like Jesse, muscle gain is your priority but you don’t want to gain fat in the process then look for the Max Size program.

  6. Me: Feels inspired to start a better diet
    Inner Me: Ehh But it would be rude to just ignore the pepperoni pizza mom and dad just ordered for you…

  7. Eating healthy wouldn’t be so hard if pizza, brownies, and Dr. Pepper didn’t taste so good.

    I’ve been consistently losing 10lbs a month for the past 7 months. I still have another 70lbs to go, but I wanted to thank Jeff for motivating me enough to get started on this path.

    I saw a comment yesterday
    “A year from today you will wish you started today”

    It’s really not hard to eat healthy, just go for protein, which circumstantially is the best tasting food.

  13. German Mann der entthront

    @courtnry salamone That’s probably about all I can do #fatass

  14. Tyrone Catkiller Kang judging by the things on your account I don’t need a straight for ward answer anymore have a good day, also here’s this 209.205.120.223 maybe you’ll rethink your words

  15. @By Any Means Necessary my advice, eat meat, and vegtables mostly, you should not be hungry, but dont overeat either, 1h later lets say that you’re hungry again eat an apple, make sure to run and do high intensity exersies then your body will change.
    Absolutly avoid any junk food, that tip is more important than the rest of the diet.
    Now if you want to lose weight lose 0.5-1 kg max a week any more and you’ll feel weakness, and your body will end up trying to store fat as a compensation after uou stop losing weight. If you have any other questions ask up

  16. Ismail Ghedamsi

    @zerocal76 What you say it’s not true because the first time you eat pizza it’s already taste good

  17. @Ismail Ghedamsi you’re right, pizza tastes good there’s a big difference between wanting to eat pizza and “needing” to eat it. Ppl who become addicted to eating junk food like pizza don’t even realize they are addicted and their want becomes a need. They subconsciously Need to eat it and they give in to the craving time after time. If it didn’t feel like a need, they’d easily choose something healthier but they cannot.

  18. @Anna Kessler i am not talking about the calorie burning that happens by existing, the one that happens by heating up your body

  19. I always thought of that when I quit but I’ve been going for 3 day now I’m not quitting this time

  20. @29-0 Then you have extremely gifted genetics I think lol Because for me, if I eat clean and train I put on healthy weight relatively steadily however if I eat 1 chocolate bar a day I’ll put on unhealthy weight relatively quickly too.
