The Reverse Taper Diet By Brad Pilon


As you may already know Brad Pilon and John Barban’s Reverse Taper Diet is based on the theory of fat availability. In this post, we are going to explain a few things about fat availability.

What is fat availability?

To put it simply, there is a maximum amount of fat that your body can burn every day. The more pounds of fat you carry, the faster you can lose fat. The thinner you are, the less fat you can lose every day. In fact, there is even some research that proves this point.

So, what is the optimal way to diet?

First, let’s take a look at the wrong way to diet.

The typical scenario is the following:

You start a new diet and at first everything is fine. You lose some weight, maybe 3-4 pounds or more in the first few weeks. But after this initial surge, you usually experience a weight-loss plateau or you may even put some weight back on. Then, you decide to eat even fewer calories, so as to jumpstart your weight loss. But, nothing happens. At this point, most dieters start to believe that there is something wrong with their body. Maybe they are in “starvation mode” or their metabolism is crashing or maybe they have thyroid problems. However, in most cases, there is nothing wrong with their bodies.

Slow weight loss is completely natural. Body fat is simply stored energy. When you eat fewer calories than your body needs, the body tries to cover the deficit by “drilling” calories from your body fat. But, what happens if your body fat is low? In this case, your body will have hard time keeping up with the deficit and you will end up feeling tired and lethargic, and possibly even lose muscle mass.

The correct way to diet is to create a larger calorie deficit at the beginning and a smaller calorie deficit as you get leaner.

Reverse Taper Diet Review


The Reverse Taper Diet is a protocol created by nutrition experts John Barban and Brad Pilon. The system comes in two versions: the Venus Index Taper diet for women and the Adonis Index Diet Taper diet for men.

The Reverse Taper Diet protocol is based on the theory of the availability of fat and the optimization of calories. According to these theories, the thinner you are, the less fat you can burn in a day. The problem is that the majority of dieters usually eat slightly below maintenance at the start of their diet and end up starving themselves to lose the last few pounds. This diet approach will only make you feel tired, lethargic and miserable and can also lead to loss of lean body mass. The theory of fat availability states that if there is not enough fat left on the body, you can’t expect rapid weight loss. So, the real reason why you usually experience weight loss plateaus at the final stages of your transformation may not be the dreaded “starvation mode” or the “destruction of your metabolism”. You may simply have hit the ceiling of your fat burning capacity and forcing your body to oxidize more fat than it’s capable of, will get you nowhere. The secret of losing weight permanently and easily is to actually increase your caloric intake, when you get closer to your ideal weight.

The reverse taper diet protocol consists of an ebook that contains 73 pages and explains these theories in every detail. In this ebook you are going to find out how much fat you can expect to lose according to your body measurements, the way to track your progress, the influence of water on your body weight and the correct way to maintain your lean body mass during caloric restriction. Don’t expect to find any meal plans in this ebook. Weight loss doesn’t depend on the type of foods you eat. It’s simply a matter of creating a calorie deficit.

The second and most important part of the protocol is the Reverse Taper Diet Calculator Software. This software can show you exactly how many calories you should eat so as to maximize fat loss and minimize muscle loss. The only thing you need to do is to input the following data into the calculator: your weight, height, measurement of waist, shoulder and your age. Then the software will tell you:

  •     Your perfect waist circumference
  •     Your ideal shoulder
  •     The amount of calories calories to eat per day
  •     The maximum fat loss per week  
  •     Your perfect weight
  •     The maximum duration for every fast
  •     The range of daily water weight variations


There are 2 different pieces of software for men and women and each one uses a completely different algorithm.

This is a very useful and valuable diet system that can work for everyone.
