‘Weird’ fitness contest results

Almost everyone knows about the biggest loser - that reality show/ weight loss contest on TV where overweight people people drop ridiculous amounts of weight – like 15 or 20 lbs in a week, and 150 or 200 lbs by the time the show is over.

Earlier this year, Tom Venuto and the guys at over at the Burn the Fat websites completed their first ever body transformation challenge contest.

But their contest was NOTHING like the biggest loser.

In fact, Josh Ketter, the overall men’s winner, and Ryan Cochrane, one of the finalists, only lost a pound.

Now, you must be thinking, “what the heck kind of weird body transformation contest were they running where the winner and the finalists only drop a pound?

Well, it would seem weird if you thought that success at body transformation meant dropping weight on the scale.

But did you ever stop to think about the difference between fat weight and muscle weight?

Think about it – if those contestants on the biggest loser gain muscle – they get penalized, right?

Shouldn’t contestants be REWARDED for gaining muscle as well as burning fat?

That’s the problem with weight loss contests today and with a lot of popular diet and fitness programs – they’re obsessed with scale weight but they don’t pay any attention to body composition (the fat-to-muscle ratio).

Of course, some of the contestants in that contest did drop a lot of fat – 15, 20, even 25 lbs in only 50 days. But the person who dropped the most pounds was NOT necessarily voted as the winner.

The winners were chosen because they made tremendous improvements in their body composition, even though their scale weight didn’t change that much.

Josh lost 8 pounds of fat and gained 7 pounds of muscle in just 50 days.  He only lost a pound on the scale because the muscle weight replaced the fat weight.

Ryan Cochrane lost 8 pounds of fat while gaining 7.7 lbs of muscle in 50 days. His weight hardly changed.

Sarah Kensington actually GAINED a pound, from 119 to 120 but her body fat decreased from 19% to a ripped 12.6%. That's a 7.9 pound GAIN in lean body mass and a 7 pound loss of body fat – remarkable for a MAN, almost unheard of for a woman!

You could see from their before and after photos that even though their weight changed by less than a pound, they TOTALLY TRANSFORMED THEIR BODIES!

How?  They gained muscle and lost fat at the same time!

Maybe you’re thinking, “wait a minute, I thought it was impossible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time? Don’t you need a calorie deficit to burn fat and a calorie surplus to build muscle?”

Well, yes and no. Calories do matter, but according to fat loss expert Tom Venuto, the guy who sponsored the recent body transformation contest, it’s much more complicated than that because of things like hormonal fluctuations and “energy partitioning.”

It was these “unusual” contest results that prompted Tom to dig into the scientific research on concurrent muscle gain and fat loss and create a new program around it that he calls:

“THE HOLY GRAIL BODY TRANSFORMATION SYSTEM: How to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time”

The program was just released at:


It’s refreshing that Tom does not B.S. you about about the kind of results you can get. In fact, he clearly states that losing fat while simultaneously gaining muscle is the most difficult goal to achieve.

That’s why people call it the “holy grail”; because it’s so elusive.

But “difficult” doesn’t mean “impossible.” It’s totally possible to lose fat while gaining muscle at the same time, if you have the right plan.

You may have heard this subject debated before on blogs or discussion forums. Those debates probably left you confused and not sure what to believe either.

This new “Holy Grail” program sets the record straight


It’s impressively referenced with peer-reviewed research and frankly, it just makes sense.

Most people are skeptical about this at first. But when you see BOTH; real-world case studies AND the scientific proof, it makes you want to stop and take a look.

Gaining Muscle and Losing Fat At The Same Time: Is It Possible

By Tom Venuto

“How can I gain muscle and lose fat at the same time?” That’s right up there with “How do I get six pack abs” as one of the most frequently asked fitness questions of all time. The problem is, when you ask it, you get all kinds of conflicting answers – even from experts who are supposed to know these things. So what’s the deal? Is it really possible to lose fat and build muscle simultaneously?

Short answer: Yes it’s possible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.

Long answer: It’s difficult and it’s complicated, unless you really know what you’re doing. Allow me to explain….

First we have the issue of whether you really lose fat and gain muscle at the “same time.”

Well, yes, if your definition of the “same time” is say, a month or 12 weeks. But in that case, you’re probably not gaining muscle at the “same time” literally speaking, as in, right now this very moment you are reading this, or 7 days a week, 24 hours a day for months in a row.

The best explanation for what’s really happening is that you alternate between periods of caloric surplus (anabolism) and caloric deficit (catabolism) and the net result is a gain in muscle and a loss in body fat.

You see, if you stay in a calorie surplus, it’s the body’s natural tendency for body fat and lean body mass to go up together. And if you stay in a calorie deficit, it’s your body’s natural tendency for body fat and lean body mass to go down together.

There may be exceptions, but the general rule is that it is usually very difficult to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time – the mechanisms are mostly antagonistic to one another. When big increases in muscle and big decreases in fat are seen at the same time, it’s almost always the result of “unusual conditions” – I call them X factors.

The 4 X-Factors

The first X-factor is “training age” . Ever hear of “newbie gains?” The less trained your body is and the further you are from your genetic potential, the easier it is to gain muscle. The reverse is also true – an advanced bodybuilder with 20 years experience would be thrilled just to gain a few pounds of solid dry muscle in a year!

The second x factor is muscle memory. It’s easier to regain muscle you’ve lost than it is to gain new muscle in the first place (ergo, the fat out of shape semi retired bodybuilder who starts training again and blows up and gets ripped “overnight”).

The third X factor is genetics (or somatotype). Ever heard of the “genetic freak?” That’s the dude who sprouts muscle like weeds even when he’s on the “50-50 diet” (50% McDonald’s and 50% pizza)… and he never gets fat. (That dude chose the right parents!)

The fourth X factor is drugs. It would stun (or sadden) you if you knew how many people take performance and physique-enhancing drugs. I’m not just talking about pro bodybuilders, I’m talking about “Joe six pack” in the gym – not to mention those fitness models you idolize in the magazines. How did some of them get large muscle gains with concurrent fat loss? Chemicals.

I’m not a gambling man, but I’ll place a wager on this any day: I’ll bet that in 99% of the cases of large muscle gains with concurrent large fat losses, one or more of these x factors were present.

That’s not all! There are actually 5 more X factors related to your body composition and diet status (the X2 factors). I talk about those in my new program, the Holy Grail Body Transformation System. More on that later.

So you’re not a beginner, you don’t take roids, you’re not a genetic freak and you have no muscle memory to take advantage of. Are you S.O.L? Well, I do want you to be realistic about your goals, but…

There IS a way for the average person to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.

The Secret: You have to change your “temporal perspective!”

Traditionally nutritionists and fitness pros have only looked at calorie balance in terms of 24 hour periods. At midnight, you could tally up the calories like a shopkeeper closing out his register, and if the balance were positive, you’d say you were in a surplus for the day. If the balance were negative, you’d say you were in a deficit for the day.

But it’s entirely possible that you might pass through periods of “within-day” surplus where you were in a highly anabolic state (for example, you eat the biggest, highest carb meal of the day after your workout), and you were in a deficit the rest of the day.

Furthermore, exercise changes everything. certain types of training will alter your hormones and physiological response to how you handle calories and nutrients.

If you did intense weight training, and you timed your nutrient intake just right, isn’t it possible that you could gain a small amount of muscle during those anabolic hours, while losing fat the rest of the day? Granted it might only be grams or ounces – but what if you kept that up for a week? A month? Three months?

As you pan out and look at the bigger picture, what if most days of the week you were in a deficit for the entire day, and on some days of the week you were in a surplus? If so, then isn’t it possible that over the course of the week, you’d have a small net gain of muscle and loss of body fat as a result of the caloric fluctuation?

These within-day and within-week phases are what I refer to in my new body transformation program as nutritional microcycles and mesocycles. If you also had a primary goal with a longer term focus of several months, say 12 weeks or 16 weeks, that would be a nutritional macrocycle.

What I’ve just described is nutritional periodization. Some people call it cyclical dieting. It’s where you manipulate your calories (primarily by fluctuating carbohydrate intake, hence “carb cycling”) in order to intentionally zig zag your way through periods of surplus and deficit.

The end result: muscle gain and fat loss during the same time period!

I know that someone out there is having a hissy fit because I’ve only talked about calories: deficits and surpluses. Rightfully so. Calories matter but there’s more to it than calories – most importantly, hormones and “nutrient partitioning.”

If you’re in a calorie deficit you are going to pull energy from your body. The question is: From WHERE? If your hormones are out of whack because you’re eating crap and you’re living an unhealthy lifestyle, you could lose more muscle than fat in a deficit and gain almost pure fat, not muscle, in a surplus!

But WHAT IF you could manipulate within day energy balance, use nutritional periodization AND control your hormones with food and lifestyle strategies?

NOW we are seeing how concurrent muscle gain and fat loss are starting to look possible!

Make no mistake – concurrent muscle gain and fat loss is a difficult goal to achieve. It’s the “Holy Grail of Fitness Goals.” The good news: difficult does not mean impossible. Or as George Santayana said, “The difficult is that which can be done immediately, the impossible, that which takes a little longer.”

If you’d like to learn more about losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time, I just recorded a fantastic introduction to the subject in a one hour interview and you can get it for free as a gift from my new website because I want to get the word out about my brand new  Holy Grail Body Transformation System.

In my new program, you’ll hear all the details about nutritional periodization, cyclical dieting, hormonal manipulation, within day energy balance, nutrient partitioning, AND the all the X factors, including the 5 “X2-Factors” – which are the keys to gaining muscle and losing fat at the same time.

You’ll also get my new “TNB” training system, which was originally published as a workout in Men’s Fitness magazine. Then I expanded it into a total program that has never been seen before except in my member’s only inner circle.

My new free report that you can download now in MP3 and PDF (transcript) is available for a limited time this week over at The Holy Grail website. It’s a great introduction to the program and you’ll pick up some great tips just from this free report alone.

3 Problems with Interval Training

By Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

Interval training is not as good as *they* make it out to be.


By *they*, I mean the inexperienced personal trainers and generic fitness magazines who aren't sure what they are talking about. In fact, the advice they'll give you can cause a LOT of problems with your interval training -- including the BIG 3 I'm about to share with you...

After all, you're probably already doing some form of interval training, but what kind of RESULTS are you getting?

Are you truly enjoying your workouts?

When is the last time you did an interval training workout where you thought 'Wow, that was really fun!'?

Trust me, you CAN have fun, fast, proven, and powerful interval training workouts. I'll show you how in a second, but first...

The 3 Problems With Interval Training

1) Intervals can stop working if you do the same workout over & over

Yes, you MUST switch up your interval training every 4-6 weeks.

If you continue to do the same interval workout, you're results will slow down.

So if you're doing intervals and you're stuck at a fat loss plateau, then it is time for a new interval workout.

2) Intervals can be dangerous if you don't know what you are doing

Jumping into an advanced interval program on the treadmill or with kettlebells is a bad idea. That's why you need to start safely.

However, most people don't realize that even beginners can do interval training if they get a professionally designed program.

Fortunately, there are beginner interval workouts in my new manual.

3) You don't know what else to do for intervals

Okay, great, now you know that you need to do a different interval program every 4 weeks, but what are you to do?

Well, the great news is that there are dozens and dozens of ways to do intervals. You can do the 30-60 method, Adrenaline intervals, Tabata intervals, and even aerobic intervals (perfect for runners who want fat loss).

There is absolutely no reason you should ever be bored of interval training or wondering what type of intervals you should do next.

BUT WAIT...One more problem: You don't have any fancy equipment!

Most people think you need a treadmill or bike to do interval workouts, but that can't be further from the truth.

In the 31 Interval Training Workouts manual, you'll discover how to do intervals with kettlebells, hill sprints, and even bodyweight exercises (including a NEW bodyweight cardio 5x5 circuit).

In fact, I've spent this summer in my "Turbulence Training lab" creating the Ultimate Interval Training Guide, featuring over 31 different interval workouts and replacements...

...including NO-equipment bodyweight cardio circuits, kettlebell intervals and "ladders", hill sprint workouts, and much, much more.

The new TT 31 Interval Training Workouts Manual solves all of the BIG 5 problems with interval training and gives you the much needed variety for your fat burning workouts.

But the only way to get these 31 NEW workouts is by taking advantage of a 50% off sale this week ONLY here.


With these workouts you'll have the exact prescription for fast fat loss from intervals. No more of that generic "get on the treadmill and then go fast and then go slow" advice you get from uneducated members at the gym or at work.

This is the real deal.

You'll soon be boosting your metabolism with proven, powerful interval training workouts from one of the first trainers to introduce fat loss intervals to the world.

I've been using and preaching intervals for over 13 years now, and having trained thousand of clients - in person and online - I know exactly what works.

Fixing intervals to help you lose fat fast. Get all of those new interval workouts here.


Looking forward to your success story!

(But hurry, this offer is only available until Friday.)

Cardio or Weights?

Which do you prefer?

The majority of women polled on popular online fitness websites choose....Cardio!

Why the preference for Cardio if the body shaping, toning and firming results are not achieved?

1. It's EASY

How much effort and thought do you have to put into getting on a treadmill for 30-60-90 minutes? You can chat with your friends, read a magazine or even watch TV.

2. Immediate Feedback

This is in regards to the traditional cardio machines. How many of you hop on the treadmill with the goal of burning "X" amount of calories? It is extremely comforting to "see" you are making progress.....however, this is misleading feedback.

Fat loss is about how many calories your body burns 24-7 (a higher metabolism means more fat loss) - not how many calories you burn per workout. Women get caught up in thinking .....the more calories I burn, the better or faster results I will achieve.

Not the direction you want to go in.

First, cardio does nothing to increase your metabolism for the next 24 hours - in fact your metabolism returns to normal shortly after you finish.

Plus, if your goal is to burn as many calories as possible, it is likely you are spending a tremendous amount of time "doing" cardio - once you are good at going past 30 minutes, you are in the DANGER zone when it comes to preserving your lean muscle.

You see, the longer you "do" cardio, the more your body dips into the protein in your muscle to give you the energy to keep going.

This is one of the reasons why many women increase the amount of time spent "doing" cardio - for with a slower metabolism, results stall, leading to thoughts of having to
exercise more to keep get back to seeing results!

I hope you can see that this is a dead end road.

3. Fear of Weights

Top two comments I hear in regards to weights....

"I don't want to bulk up"

"It's just too complicated"

Well as many of you already know from following me and what I write ~ women just cannot get big from lifting weights.

Our hormones limit us to simply increase strength and tone/firmness when it comes to muscle gains.

Adding muscle to your body has a HOST of fat burning, skinny jean-wearing and  health benefits.

Strength training does not have to be complicated, boring or feel unproductive.

First of all, the women who are stating that they do not feel productive after a resistance training workout are really missing some key factors.

When you follow a short burst resistance training plan, there is nothing more invigorating, satisfying or leaves you feeling confidently accomplished - would you agree Fit Yummy Mummy's?

Second, if resistance training feels appears to be too complicated - time to switch up your plan.

The Fit Yummy Mummy design simplifies your workout so you are finished in a mere 15 minutes - not a whole lot of complicated moves in this style of workout.

Plus it is FUN to move your Body and see the increase in strength....not just during your workout, but in Everyday Life!

4. "But Cardio worked ....when I was younger...."

I know it did for me and thousands of other women who used to be able to jump on a treadmill for 20-30-60 minutes a couple times a week and Wa- Lah! Instant results!

Many of the enthusiastic pro-cardio comments may very well be from women in their early 20's.

Human nature leads us to stick with what we know....because it is easy.

However, as your body adapts and as time passes – creating a host or hormonal changes as well - the same routine just will not cut it like it used to.

Remember the comment above: I love the feeling when doing cardio, strength training is just hard work.

I have to break it to you..... Easy does not get results.

Lose fat & gain muscle at the same time?

This brand new "Body Re-composition" report is amazing:

It's by Tom Venuto and it shows you a scientifically proven system to achieve the "Holy Grail" of fitness goals:

Gaining Muscle and losing fat - AT THE SAME TIME!

Yes that sounds pretty hypey, but it's true, and as soon as you see this report, you'll 'get it'

The report is f-re-e and you can download it as a PDF and read it, or download it as an MP3 and listen to it.

Cool eh? - the MP3 alone is worth $47 - but it's getting taken down soon, so grab it now while you still can:

There's an opt-in (email subscribe) form on this page:

After you opt in, you'll get Tom's PDF or MP3 report, "The Holy Grail Revealed" which teaches you how to gain muscle and lose body fat at the same time.

Then you'll get 3 MORE special reports which will be published in the next couple of weeks that teach you:

* How to gain muscle without gaining an ounce of fat (say goodbye to "bulking" and hello to "lean muscle gains")

* How to lose fat without losing any of your precious hard-earned muscle (the end of "ripped, but skinny")

* Why most people fail when they try to achieve these elusive goals (Body re-composition mistakes).


* real world success stories from real people who packed on muscle while losing fat at the same time... the proof is in the pudding. See it with your own eyes.


This is info that Tom has only released to his customers and Inner Circle members before.

The report is EXCELLENT, but I have to warn you that this entire subject is pretty controversial. 

However, Venuto is one of the most reputable experts online in the way he walks the walk (the guy is built!), and gives the science to back up his info...

It's pretty unusual that a successful natural bodybuilder gives away his secrets like this, but even more unusual to hear a smart bodybuilder teach his secrets, show you the
scientific proof of how its done...

AND... Show you the real-world before and after case studies proving that even ordinary people can do it too.

Get your "Holy Grail" report before he takes it down:


Arthur M.

PS I hope I didn't scare you off with the "warning." This report is really good, it's just that the subject in this report has always been a little controversial... (it's no big deal, but what's in this report should make for some interesting blog conversations!)

Top 10 Transformation Contest Tips

By Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

If you want to lose fat and gain lean, sculpted muscle at the same time, there is nothing better to get you motivated and committed than a 12-week Transformation Contest.

Not only can you dramatically change your body, but you can also win $1000 just for losing belly fat. At least, you can when you join the Turbulence Training Transformation Contest.

And so here are the top 10 tips to help you maximize your results.

10. Clean out your pantry.

Listen, one of the best fat loss tips is simply, "If you don't have it in the house, you won't eat it!"

So get rid of as much junk food as you can - and avoid bringing more into the house. Simply cutting back on junk can help you lose fat fast.

9. Get social support.

Scientific research proves that you will lose more fat if you have social support, both in "real life" and on the internet. So hook up with friends who are going to help you reach your goal.

Online, I recommend getting started with Turbulence Training and using the Turbulence Training forum to connect with people like you who want to lose fat.

8. Use a food journal.

Write down what you eat. This is another research proven tip to help you lose fat faster. Write down everything you eat. It will help you eat better.

7. Take before photos.

Yes, it's not a lot of fun to look at your before photos now, but when you are done your transformation, you'll be glad you have the photos to compare. Plus, you'll need those to win the TT Contest.

6. Fix your mindset.

No matter what you struggle with, you must switch your mindset to be a successful transformation. You must go from a person who "can't resist cookies" to the type of person that "doesn't eat cookies unless they are part of a planned reward meal". That is how you win transformation contests!

5. You must be in the correct state of change.

The truth is that even the best transformation contest winners don't lose 30 pounds of fat on their first try. They start, they stop. They begin, they give up.

It happens. And it's okay.

But when they get in the right state of change, that is when they finally breakthrough and transform! And that's where you have to be.

4. Use a PROVEN, structured, short burst workout program.

Research shows that resistance training and interval training can help you gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. Plus, you can burn belly fat AND boost your post-exercise metabolism. You MUST use this type of workout for guaranteed results.

3. Stop doing slow boring cardio and switch to interval training.

Research shows that it takes up to 50 hours of cardio just to lose one pound of bodyweight.

Who has that kind of time? No one!

But other research studies show that interval training burns belly fat while slow cardio doesn't. So skip the insanely boring cardio and start getting results with interval training (as you'll find in the Turbulence Training workouts).

2. Plan, shop, and prepare your food.

Take an hour or two on the weekend to go to the grocery store and buy all the whole, natural foods you need for the week ahead. Go home and prepare as many lunches and snacks as possible so you have the right food to eat while at work. This is a proven strategy to help you lose fat and avoid temptation!

1. Get Turbulence Training. It's the proven, step-by-step guide to transforming your body and your life.

If you've ever wanted to do this for yourself - if you deserve it - and I know you do, then NOW is the time to get started with the best fat burning workout in the world.


Looking forward to your success story!

The secret behind “naturally” skinny people

If you’ve ever cursed those “genetic freaks” who seem to eat whatever they want and never gain an ounce...

...while you do everything right and still struggle to get rid of the fat around your belly, hips, neck, or thighs...

... then you’re about to discover their *dirty little secret.*

And the amazing part is... those “metabolic lottery winners” often don’t even know what they’re doing right to stay so thin.

But, fitness expert, Tom Venuto, has figured out a way you can kick your metabolism into high-gear and burn fat like a natural athlete...

... no matter where you are starting from right now.

Discovering your unique body type...

The key is eating and exercising for your specific body type.

There are 3 major body types, but very few of us are an “exact match” for any one of them. Instead, you are most likely a combination of all 3 known body types.

One of my favorite things about Tom’s program is he’s made it very easy to identify your specific body type. And then develop a simple plan that will works for you.

That’s huge because...

The “One Size Fits All” diet plan is lie!

Did you know there are over 50,000 diet books listed on Amazon? Yet, none of them can work for every body type.

Tom is living proof that his system works where standard diet plans fail.

See, even though he is a 7-time Natural bodybuilding champion...

Tom actually had a beer belly in college.

Then, he switched his major to exercise science and went on a personal mission to uncover the truth about why some people struggled with fat like he did...

...  while others practically live at the drive-thru window and still have six-pack abs.

When he discovered the body typing secret of a Harvard professor over 80 years ago... and combined it with what he was learning in his own studies...

... he went from being called “fat boy” to taking second in his very first bodybuilding championship just a few months later.

Since then, Tom has spent the last 20 years helping over two hundred thousand people of all body types torch their fat and finally achieve the body of their dreams without having to fight their genetics.

In fact, he was recently featured in Oprah magazine who said “Venuto is honest...” about what it takes to “drop a significant number of pounds.”

And the best part is... on Tom’s plan, you’ll never go hungry.

Eat more to burn more fat...

In fact, starving yourself is about the worst thing you can do to burn fat. That’s true no matter which body type you are.

The reason is, when you rob your body of the calories it needs to function, your body starts storing fat and losing muscle...

... leading to what Tom calls...

“Skinny Fat Syndrome.”

That’s where you lose weight, but your body looks and feels like mush. Not very flattering.

And even worse, your metabolism grinds to a halt.

Tom’s program is the opposite of this.  You are actually going to gain lean muscle while losing fat. And the result is the kind of, “look” you probably thought you never could achieve.

Anyway, if you have been confused by exactly what to do, especially the “what to eat” part and are still struggling with your weight – then I think trying out Tom’s program just makes sense.

He is one of the few guys out there who really cares and knows what he is talking about.

For a short time, Tom is giving away the secret behind his best selling system in this video presentation for nothing.

All you have to do is click and watch.

Let me know what you think!


Arthur M.

P.S.  One thing I forgot to mention is that Tom’s program has been online for over 8 years now and he developed it over 14 years before that. So it’s got a 22 year track record. And the stories from people are simply incredible.  Here is just one:

“When I started I weighed 246 pounds. Today I'm 172. My body fat was pushing 30% and now it's 8% to 9%. My waist was 40 inches and now it's 31. My cholesterol today is around 143. My blood pressure was 145/90, which is mild hypertension, and is now 118/60. My pulse was 81 and my resting heart rate today is around 48. I haven't had any illnesses in the last three years and I feel great."
Bob Phifer, Age 50

"Tom, I purchased your plan last year, and as of today I have lost 40 lbs, I went from a size 18 to a size 10. My daughter got married this past weekend and I was amazed that I reached my goal of wearing a size 10 to her wedding. I am a nurse, my patients all ask me what my secret is and I tell them, "Burn The Fat." I have even had a few patients ask me where "that other nurse" is, because I lost so much fat, they don't even recognize me!

5 Research-Proven Belly Fat Burning Tips

By Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

Today I'm going to give you five RESEARCH-PROVEN methods to help you lose fat 24/7/365.

Alright, let's do this.

Proven Fact #1 - Eat More Fruits & Vegetables

Subjects on a low-fat diet that ate more fruits and vegetables lost more fat than another group on only the low-fat diet.

After 1-year, the low-fat, fruits and vegetables group (LF-FV) lost more weight than another group of woman on the low-fat (LF) diet only. Why?

Because the LF-FV group reported being less hungry, thanks to being able to eat more food than the LF group.

Here's the reference:
Amer. J. Clin. Nutr. 85: 1465-1477, 2007.

So eat nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables to fill you up. Time to enjoy peaches, watermelon, apples, melons, and berries. Don't let any "guru" tell you that fruit is bad, that's nonsense!

2) Drop the Cardio and Use TT-Approved Interval Training

Our research friends in Australia have found interval training to be the solution to stomach fat.

According to Professor Steve Boutcher, an Australian expert on interval training, "high intensity intermittent exercise may result in greater fat loss in the abdomen".

That means that unlike doing hundreds of crunches, interval training can work to burn belly fat over everything else. And that's why the Turbulence Training for Abs workouts use intervals, not cardio.

3) Okay, There is ONE Type of Cardio That Can Help

In another study, researchers compared high-intensity cardio against low-intensity cardio. Both groups burned the same amount of calories in their workouts (400), but the high-intensity group exercised less.


The subjects in the Low-Intensity Exercise group did not lose fat. So "Boooo!" to low-intensity cardio.

On the other hand, the HIC (high-intensity cardio) group lost a significant amount of abdominal fat.

Once again, research shows that exercising harder results in more belly fat loss in less time. And in fact, slow cardio does NOTHING for fat loss.

Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2008 Oct 8. Effect of Exercise Training Intensity on Abdominal Visceral Fat and Body Composition.

So if you insist on doing cardio, I will allow you to do one extra high-intensity cardio session per week in addition to your three Turbulence Training for Abs workouts per week.

4) Burn More Calories AFTER Exercise with Supersets

The latest research shows that superset training - the type of resistance training used in Turbulence Training for Abs - boosts metabolism more than traditional straight set training.

J Str Cond Res 24:4 2010.

Sure, Turbulence Training was 10 years ahead of this research, but it is always nice to have more scientific proof that the Turbulence Training for Abs workouts are the best way to train for fat loss!

5) Stick with Lower Reps in Your Workouts for Calorie Burning This is from one of the first studies I used to formulate Turbulence Training. In the study, researchers had women do two workouts. One workout was done with light weights and high reps, and the other workout was done with heavier weights and 8 reps per set (this group was called high-intensity).

The study found that the high intensity group burned more calories AFTER exercise and therefore the scientists recommend high intensity resistance training rather than low-intensity high rep lifting.

A Comparison  Of Two Different Resistance Training Intensities On Exercise Energy Expenditure And Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption. Thornton, K, Potteiger, JA. Medicine and Sciencein Sports and Exercise, Volume 33(5) Supplement 1, 2001, p S73.

So there you go...I use ALL five of these RESEARCH-PROVEN methods in the TT for Abs follow-along DVD workouts that I've created for you.

And they are on sale for 3 days ONLY this week. But hurry, the sale ends on Thursday night.

What's your goal for the rest of the summer?

hat's your goal for the rest of the summer?

I know quite a few people who reached their low body fat goal - some even achieved their lifelong dream of seeing six pack abs...

Now they want to gain some muscle, but they're scared of gaining back the fat along with the muscle (which is very common... so it's not an unwarranted fear)

If you want to:

* Gain muscle WITHOUT getting fat (NO "bulking up" - just lean gains)

* Lose fat without losing muscle (FORGET the "lean but bean pole" look)

* Or even gain muscle and lose fat at the same time (The "holy grail" of all fitness goals!)
