3 Fat Loss Secrets From Bally the Dog

Woof Woof!

Bally the Dog here, and since my Human is away on holiday, I thought I'd email you with 3 fitness tips to help you lose fat.

After all, I finally figured out how to use the "Human's" computer, but if you see any spelling mistakes, please furgive me, but my big paws aren't meant for these small computerz.

Oh, and if you're a cat, please stop reading. Because I don't like you and I will chase you down if I find out you are reading this.

Okay, woof woof?


Here we go...

Tip #1 - Get your exercise in the morning

After my morning walk, I usually get a rawhide treat, and then I just lie on the ground waiting for my next walk. And while I do that, I get to listen to my Human do fitness interviews for magazines and radio stations...

...and he keeps on saying:

"It doesn't matter when you exercise for fat loss, all that matters is that you are consistent. And when you exercise first thing in the morning, that means you will be more consistent. And being consistent is one of the most important things in your fat loss program."

Woof, woof, maybe that's why I get a long walk and some sprints first thing in the morning? Bark bark!

That is probably why the vet once said to my human, "Wow, your dog has six pack abs!"

Woof woof!

So if you are struggling to be consistent, get up a little earlier and do your workout before life/work/family gets in the way and stops you from getting your workout.


Tip #2 - Eat 3 medium sized meals and some very healthy snacks

Since I'm a dog, I'll eat just about anything. And that is good news, because that means I love to snack on apples, blueberries, broccoli, red peppers, and bananas.

Woof, I probably eat more fruits and vegetables than most humans, not including my Human. He eats a lot of fruits and vegetables every day, even while traveling.

And he has six pack abs too. Woof, woof, woof.

Tip #3 - Stay active on your off days with fun & playful activity

Even though I'm almost 5 human years old, I still get anxious when my Human leaves me alone at home and goes to the gym.

Woof, woof, woof! Bark, bark, bark! Whine. Bark Bark! WOOF!

I am sure am glad that he only goes 3-4 times per week, instead of 6-7 times per week like some folks.

On his days off, we go to the beach and parks and have fun. No long, slow, boring cardio for him. I won't allow it.

Grrrrrrrrr. That's what I say to cardio machines. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I'd rather chase squirrels any day than get on a treadmill or one of those silly elliptical machines.

So bottom line:

1) Do short, burst workouts CONSISTENTLY.

2) Eat 3 mid-size meals and lots of whole, natural food snacks in between meals.

3) Train 3-4 times per week and stay active on your off-days.


It's that simple.

Let me know what you think.

Bark Bark!

Your favorite doggy,

RE: Faster fat burning/muscle-shaping with HDT Workouts

I got this email today from Jon Benson.


All this past week I've been telling you about this:  <

This is all about how shorter workouts (7-14 minutes) are better for fatloss AND muscle gain than longer workouts.

Naturally this freaks a lot of people out.

When they see me they assume I train for hours a day.

Wrong. I work out about 3 hours a week total in the gym when I'm not preparing for a photoshoot. When I am I increase the cardio... that's it.

However, I spend HALF the year training about 1.5 hours a week in the gym using my 7 Minute Muscle workouts.

I like training longer, so I mix it up... but the results I get from 7 Minute Muscle are equal OR better than longer workouts so this next year I plan to train using 'nothing' but 7MM.

More here:  <

I've been getting swamped with questions about one thing in particular:

    WHY are shorter workouts better for fatloss?

The secret behind this is a trademarked term (by me... : )

     "Hyper-Density Training"

HDT is the most unique form of density training there is.

Density training is basically more work in less time.

This creates the demand for more energy.

More energy spent = greater fatloss.

More energy demanded = more lean muscle.

     All of this in 7-14 minutes per day.

     3-5 days per week.

I made a new website about HDT to explain it.

Go here now...

this comes down in a few days:  <---about HDT

P.S.  HDT works for everyone, even those who workout in their home without weights.

Just by going to the new page you'll learn how to use the principles behind HDT (freee) to help you with your workouts...

... and you can also get the "last-call" for my System that covers HDT and brevity training in detail...

... for a massive discount...

How To Turn On The Fat-Burning Gene

You may have this gene.

It may be turned "off" right now... in fact it probably is.

There's a problem with that:

     This gene helps you melt off body fat.

It would be pretty nice to turn that sucker on, right?

Here's an article on...

1. What SIRT1 is;
2. How you can "turn it on"
3. How to keep it on

     What Is SIRT1?

Simply put, SIRT1 is a "rescue gene". This gene is activated during times of fasting to, for a very SHORT period of time, access more stored bodyfat.

That's a good thing.

The problems are...

1. Fasting is not good for the metabolism if done for more than a day;

2. This trick doesn't work well over the long-run.

SIRT1 is practically dormant in most people as we have a surplus of food. We consume, on average, about 30% more food than our bodies require every single day.

It's no wonder this gene went to sleep...

... and it's time you wake it up.

     How To Turn On SIRT1

As mentioned above, fasting for a day will activate SIRT1 if practiced for a few weeks. So you eat one day, fast the next, and keep this up for 1-2 weeks.

But... let's face it. Most of us do not like the idea of NOT eating for a full day.

So I have two alternatives that work just as well to activate SIRT1 and NOT shut down your metabolism over the long-haul (as weekly fasting like this can do.)

TIP 1:  Do a fruit fast instead.

If you want to try a fruit fast every other day you can do so. This is much healthier and much easier on the body than an all-out fast.

However, for some people the sugar in fruit can trigger over-eating... and we don't want that.

TIP 2:  Stagger your calories

Jon Benson teaches you this trick here: <-- Turn On Your Fatburning Gene <---

But he takes it a step further:  He lets you in on how you can stagger your "macronutrients" and your calories without having to think too much about it.

He calls this his "Favorite Foods Plan" because it demands you consume high-calorie foods that you enjoy at specific times on specific days.

The other days are low in calories, higher in lean protein, but still contain real food.

Fasting is not necessary. The "starvation" switch that triggers SIRT1 has been shown to be triggered after only a day or two of low-calorie eating.

You just can't do that very long without higher- calorie days... and THAT is the nifty trick you need to learn.

Jon wrote the book on the subject... literally. : ) <-- Turn On Your Fatburning Gene <--- the guide to fat loss

     How Do You Keep SIRT1 "On"?

Simple:  You stay on this cycle-your-calories diet plan... yep. That's necessary. This is for LIFETIME fat loss... not a crash diet plan... they never, EVER get you what you want.

You want to be lean for life... no exceptions.

So to do that you need all the genetic help you can get.... and SIRT1 is part of that plan.

Turn it on today.

Do You Want a Firm Butt & Lean Legs?

Want to know the best exercises to firm up your butt? Want the best interval training programs to burn fat from your legs?

Good, because I've got them here for you today! All thanks to Women's Health magazine contributor, Craig Ballantyne (he's also designed workouts for Shape, Prevention, and Muscle n Fitness Hers).

Back in 2004 Craig created a program called "Booty for Life" for a personal client. And while that program was awesome, he spent an entire week last month improving the workouts AND adding a brand new 4-week fat burning, butt-firming phase to the program...

...and he renamed it, "Booty for Wife (& all the single ladies!)".

Why did he rename and redo the program?

Well, the original name was bit of a joke, and it was a little too close to "Body for Life", and Craig didn't want anyone (i.e. Bill Phillips) to get upset when his Booty program got really popular.

So he made a simple little name he just has to hope that Beyonce doesn't sue him!

But seriously, and more importantly, Craig updated the original program and added 3 new workouts & some booty-building exercises to the plan, including:

- Lateral lunges
- 1-leg bodyweight deadlifts
- dumbbell lunges
- kettlebell swings
- dumbbell deep step-ups
- 1-leg bodyweight bench squats

Those go with all of the other booty exercises in the program, including split squats, 1-leg hip extensions, regular step-ups, and reverse lunges.

And Craig subbed in more bodyweight exercises so you don't need to use dumbbells as much for the rest of the workouts. Some of the new exercises you'll get are:

- Stability Ball Cross-Body Mountain Climber (great for abs/obliques) - Close-Grip 3/4 Rep Pushups (awesome for sculpting your triceps) - Stability Ball Pike (for hard-core abs)

Plus, you'll get SIX different fat burning interval training programs, and interval training has been shown to reduce thigh fat in research studies.

Whew. There's a lot in there for you, and to celebrate the re-release of Booty for Wife, I've asked Craig to put together an amazing special offer just for you.

You'll get all of these for free...

1) The TT Booty for Wife (& all the single ladies) 12-Week Program
2) The TT Female Bodysculpting 4-Week Workout
3) 30-Days in the TT Member's Website & Forum
4) The TT for Hot Chicks 4-Week Workout
5) The NEW "TT Bodyweight Cardio 3" Workout

...when you get your half-price copy of the Turbulence Training for Fat Loss Program for only $19.95.

(That's $10 less than if you were to buy Booty for Wife on its own!)

So you could get Booty for Wife for $29.95 or you could get Booty for Wife plus Turbulence Training plus all of those other bonuses all for only $19.95.

I think that's an easy choice, don't you?

Click here to get this amazing special offer today:


Plenty of time to sculpt that booty before you hit the beach on your next holiday.

By the way, just listen to this incredible feedback on the program:

"I just finished section 2 of the Booty for Wife series. I feel strong and super fit and I've gotten so many compliments lately that I know it has to be the program! I start the 3rd section tomorrow and it looks tough and I can't wait. I know that in 4 weeks I'm going to be amazed at myself. And, I am so looking forward to doing the chin ups. I hoping I can do at least one to start and by 4 weeks I want to be doing 5 or more. This is a really great 3 month program and if you haven't tried it you really should."
- Debbie D., TT Member

To Your Success,

Arthur M.

P.S. Hurry, offer ends Thursday, August 12th at 11:59pm.

5 things you must know to burn fat!

Are you like most of us and struggle with the ongoing battle of fighting the fat and the unhappy feelings that go along with little to no success? Maybe you struggle a little or a lot. Maybe there are certain spots you want to work on that seem a little bigger than you'd like. We all have these feelings that we wish would go away.

We all can't stand it when we see ourselves grow out of our favorite pair of jeans only to have to buy a bigger size.

Are you tired of trying to find the solution to burning your unwanted fat? Nothing seems to work and you keep hoping the next fad diet or gizmo is going to be the end all solution. You quickly realize that it has been a huge waste of time and you end up right back where you started.

You may have come to the conclusion that there is no solution and have decided to throw in the towel.

Before you do that, let me show you 5 very important tips you need to know to start burning the fat!

1. You may have heard people say you don't have the right genetics to lose weight. This is not true and you can burn fat and get that flat stomach you always wanted.

2. "Fad" diets don't work! They change daily and can actually be harmful to your body and your desire to lose the weight.

3. Always feeling like you are on a diet is the best way to destroy any hopes of dropping those unwanted pounds and becoming a healthier person.

4. You may be eating foods that you think are healthy but could actually be packing the fat on and keeping you from your fat loss goals.

5. Motivation is a huge key to burning fat! And if you have no motivation and feel like you keep hitting a dead end when it comes to losing weight and getting that body you want, don't worry there is an answer for you!

Does any of this make sense?

Well it did to a Virginia man who lost 65 pounds using these tips and more. Check it out the photos here at this website.

The crazy thing is that he also used a strange weight loss plan to turn his body into a fat burning machine.

He went against everything that the weight loss "experts" have been trying to sell us for years. And it made all the difference!

I don't have enough time to go into detail and post everything about it here in this email...

but you can check it out for yourself and learn everything you ever needed to start burning the fat today! Check it out...

Take Care!

Bodyweight Cardio for Fat Loss?

What the heck is Bodyweight Cardio?

It's a fun fat burning workout program that you can do at the park or in the comfort of your own home without equipment.

If you're sick and tired of boring cardio, or if you've even had enough of traditional interval training, these new bodyweight circuit programs can be used to replace both of those fat burning workout methods.

You can also replace your entire workout program with the bodyweight cardio program, because it combines bodyweight strength training with muscle endurance to give you a complete lean body workout.

After all, it often feels like there just aren't enough hours in the day. Between work, family, appointments, and unexpected time-zappers, it's hard finding time to squeeze in a quality workout.

And it's even more difficult to workout when it involves navigating through rush hour traffic, dealing with annoying people and dirty machines in the gym, and following a program that isn't making even the slightest dent in your belly fat.

It's frustrating, exhausting, and most importantly, wastes your precious time!

What you need is a fat burning workout that you can do ANYWHERE - including the park, your backyard or even in a hotel room. With your busy lifestyle, you need a no-equipment workout that will help you burn fat as fast as interval training on a treadmill.

Fortunately, I've discovered the perfect program...

Turbulence Training Bodyweight Cardio 3

This no-equipment, anywhere, anytime workout system has already helped thousands of other men and women to burn fat and sculpt their bodies.

In this program, you'll get:

- 4 challenging, ZERO equipment workouts that will tone your body in ALL the right places

- NEW exercises GUARANTEED to burn more calories all day long

- Fun workouts you can get done quickly

- Fat-blasting workouts you can SUBSTITUTE for interval training and cardio workouts (No treadmill? No problem!)

- PLUS, you'll get the never-seen-before 5-Round "fat burning fight" workout that will ignite your fat-burning hormones

One of the most critical elements to your fat loss success is finding a workout program that fits into your lifestyle, and with the flexibility of Turbulence Training Bodyweight Cardio 3, things just got a whole lot easier.
