Why the Wrong Diet Can Actually Make You Gain Fat

If you have been doing everything right, but just can’t seem to get rid of the fat around your belly, hips, neck, or thighs – it may not be your fault.

It turns out that in a world of “one size fits all” weight loss plans, actually losing weight on a plan can be somewhat like playing the lottery!

According to fitness expert Tom Venuto, different body types require totally different eating and exercise plans. So what might work for your friend, might not work for you.

Tom’s Story...

Tom, who has been walking around with single digit body fat for the last 20 years, used to have a beer belly when he was in college.  He thought he was doing things right in the gym, but nothing worked to get rid of the fat.

So he decided to major in exercise science and figure this thing out. What he discovered was that there were different body types that all needed different plans.

He figured out what his type was, and the rest is history…

Tom went on to win his first all natural body building championship at the age of 20 and has never been fat again (his body fat was once registered at 3.7%). And since that time he has helped people who never thought it was possible to acquire the body of their dreams without having to fight their genetics. 

In the world of fitness, Tom is known for his no nonsense approach. He doesn’t recommend pills, exotic diets, or anything that would require you to put your life on hold in order to reach your goals.

And you don’t have to have the goal of under 5% body fat! You could use his advice to get there, but his plans are more tailored for the person who just wants to look and feel their best.

What I really like about Tom’s stuff is that it is definitely not about starvation – it is about putting on lean muscle and increasing your metabolism by eating the right foods for you, in the right amounts, with the right exercises for you. 

Are you skinnyfat?

I think Tom created this phrase… Skinnyfat happens when you lose more muscle than fat. So although you are losing weight and you fit in smaller clothes – out of clothes, your appearance is kind of mushy. And even worse, your metabolism grinds to a halt.

This is why yo-yo dieting usually results in a larger waist line.

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”, that 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!

Sincerely,

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!

The Secret Cardio for Fat Loss

Slow boring cardio doesn't work for fat loss, but there is a "Secret Cardio for Fat Loss" that will get you results fast.

And this secret method is called interval training.

Interval training is a research-proven KEY to your fat loss program and health. Researchers are even starting to use intervals with patients recovering from heart disease! So you know that interval training is just going to get more popular.

But a lot of folks worry that intervals can get boring, if you do the same ones over and over again. And that's true.

So here's the deal...If you don't have variety in your program, you are more than likely to end up at a fat loss plateau soon rather than later. Variety is a key for getting continuous fat loss results.

Not only should you have variety within your training week (i.e. alternate between two different interval training workouts, rather than just doing the same interval workout each time), but you should also change these workouts every 4 weeks.

Just like your resistance training, you need to change your interval training program every 4 weeks. To modify your interval training workouts, you can...

- switch exercise methods (and use bodyweight exercises for intervals)
- increase or decrease the length of the interval (while decreasing or increasing the intensity, respectively)
- increase or decrease the number of intervals per workout
- increase or decrease the rest time between intervals

After all, there is NO "best" interval training program - no best "sets and reps" for fat loss.

That's why you need to use variety in your program. (So perhaps the best interval training method is simply the one that changes every 4 weeks.)

If you are thinking that these intervals all sound "too intense" for you, please don't worry. Interval training is all relative.

In fact, a recent study found that coronary-heart disease patients found interval training EASIER than cardio! You don't have to sprint for your life in each type of interval.

Instead, just work at a slightly harder than normal pace. By the end of the interval, you should be getting tired, but you shouldn't be gasping for air. Start conservatively and you will get the hang of it.

For example, if you regularly use level 5 on the stationary bike for 30 minutes continuously, you might try doing a 1 minute interval at level 7. Try that for an interval workout and let me know how it goes.

(NOTE: Talk to your doctor first if you have never done interval training before.)

My favorite intervals for fat loss are between 30-60 seconds. These have been the staple intervals in the Turbulence Training workouts since the first TT workout was designed back in 2001.

But again, you will get your best fat loss results if you vary your interval training workouts - just like you must vary your strength training workouts.

Transform fat to muscle in 49 days

Did you ever wonder how some people get "better than average" fat loss and muscle gains in a ridiculously short amount of time?

A perfect example is those Body Transformation Contest before and after pictures.

Sometimes these transformation winners look so good you scratch your head and wonder whether there might be some photoshop trickery going on there... it has been known to happen.

But the truth is, some people REALLY do achieve remarkable body transformations - fast - and there is NO trickery involved... somehow, they just rocked it!

How do they do it? What's their secret?

Well, best-selling fitness author and fat loss coach Tom Venuto recently posted the results from his mega-successful "Burn The Fat Challenge" contest.

Sure enough, some of the before and after pictures are mind blowing... especially when you consider there are only 49 days between the before and the after...

http://bit.ly/ftNPJs

But more importantly than looking at the photos which are very inspirational and motivating when you see regular people - busy dads and moms in their 40's - WINNING these types of body improvement contests...

The real priceless part, is where Tom de-constructed how they did it and wrote down the 5 common denominators all the winners had in common.

These are the factors that help explain how some people routinely blow past "typical" results (like dropping only a pound or two a week), while others seem to plod along at a snail's pace.

It's enlightening - and very motivational at the same time.

8 Metabolism Boosters for Fat Loss

Your metabolism is your fat loss foundation.

It keeps burning and burning fat 24 hours a day...the only problem is, do you have a fast metabolism? And if not, what can you do about it to boost your metabolism and burn fat to lose weight?

Your metabolism is basically how many calories you burn each day. Children have faster metabolic rates than adults, and we all know about the legendary metabolism's of teenage boys. That's the metabolism you wish you had.

And while it is inevitable that your metabolism decreases with age, it doesn't doom you to gaining weight. It might even decrease 30% over your life, but really, is that any reason to become overweight? No way. Not when you can turn it around with a couple of simple, proven techniques listed below...

Here are 8 possible metabolic boosters and the truth about whether each works.

1) Strength training

Claim: Boosts metabolism up to 10% after a training program

True!

In fact, despite what many men and women think, harder exercise is better for your metabolism. However, please note that 1 pound of muscle does not burn 50 calories per day.

In one study, women received a greater metabolic boost from using 8 repetitions per set rather than traditional high-rep (12 reps) sets. So stick to harder exercises (pushups and more advanced bodyweight exercises) or dumbbell exercises.

2) Breakfast

Claim: Because it stops your "fasting", it can boost metabolism

True? Maybe yes, maybe no. Your metabolism won't go into "starvation mode" without breakfast, but it is associated with successful weight loss. So make it a habit to consume some protein, fiber, & fruit (& even veggies if you can fit them in) at this time. This will keep your appetite in check till your next break or even lunch.

3) Green Tea

Claim: Burns an extra 80 calories per day

True? Not really. It has been shown to burn 80 calories per day in young men on the first day of supplementation, but will this affect last once your body gets used to it? I don't think.

After all, take a look at caffeine. You can find studies that show it increases metabolism as well. But really, is anyone losing fat with caffeine? The revolving doors at Starbucks say "No!".

Coffee is okay in moderate doses, and I recommend Green Tea to everyone, but for health reasons, not for fat loss. The only way you will lose fat with Green Tea is if you replace a 300+-calorie Frappucino with an iced, unsweetened Green Tea. Otherwise, don't count on it for much in terms of metabolism.

4) Fat Burners

Claim: Boost your metabolism big time!

Fat burners are simply caffeine pills with a few other ingredients thrown in. You'll get an increase in mental energy, but that doesn't mean it will significantly boost metabolism or burn fat.

5) Ice Cold Water with Lemon Juice Squeezed into it

Claim: The body will burn calories warming up the water and the lemon juice also burns more fat.

Truth? Nice in theory, short in practice. Nobody is losing fat with ice cold water. If it sounds too good to be true - you know the rest of the story.

6) Eating 6 small meals per day

Claim: Boosts metabolism and can help control cholesterol.

Possibly true. Try and split your meals up into smaller meals that can be eaten over the course of the day. This might be part of the breakfast magic...

7) Protein

Claim: Burns more calories (uses more calories in digestion than carbohydrates or fat).

True, but…

I'm not sure if this is significant, but protein also helps fill you up longer. And that's where the real benefit comes in - preventing overeating. And if you want details, another study showed that animal protein results in more energy burned than vegetable protein.

8] Interval training

Claim: Interval training causes a greater increase in post-exercise metabolism than regular cardio.

I certainly believe it.

And I do know this. A recent study from Australia found that a shorter interval program led to more weight loss than a twice-as-long aerobic training program. This confirms the original interval training study from as far back as 1994 that showed greater results from a shorter interval program when compared to a traditional cardio program.

Bottom line: Intervals work!

So we see that hard work and diligent eating burn more calories and that magic pills and potions don't work.

But that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. My advice? Add strength, intervals, mini-meals, and protein to your weight loss plan and you'll be leaner and warmer thanks to your faster metabolism.

"In November of 2005, I noticed that I had put on a significant amount of weight. I had avoided getting on the scale b/c I was afraid to see how bad the # was. With my job, I had many client dinners frequently and I wasn't taking into the consideration of how much it was impacting my weight.

I was still working out, but didn't have a solid program that I committed to. I went to the gym when I had time. When I finally got on the scale I noticed that my weight hit an all time high of 228lbs!!! Not good, when I know my optimal weight for my frame is 210lbs.

The last 3 months I committed to Turbulence Training and made some modifications to my diet outlined in the TT program. What I realized is that the workouts were more intense, I burned more calories and I made it out of the gym in less time then I previously did. This worked well for my busy schedule and it was simple to commit to this program.

After a 3 month commitment, I am happy to say I am now back at 210lbs and feel better then I have in years. All thanks to the TT program. I have tried many programs and this is the most effective and simple program I have ever used. I recommend to anyone that faces the same busy work/personal life that I do."

Bizarre side-effect of getting TOO lean

The Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM) program has been one of the most popular fat loss programs online for almost 10 years.

Although some people consider BFFM a little intense, this program has earned a reputation for being so effective, that many people achieve six pack abs and very low body
fat for the first time in their lives where other programs had failed them...

But then some "newly ripped" people find themselves with an odd side effect of being TOO lean that they weren't expecting (and sometimes other people notice and give them "flack" for it).

I swear this is a real phenomenon and this question comes up a lot more than you'd think.

Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle author Tom Venuto explains this bizarre side effect in this interesting and entertaining new article, as he answers a reader's question:

Improve Your Diet Instantly With These Healthy Convenience Snacks

Being on the go is no excuse to eat poorly. Having a healthy convenience snack on hand is not only practical, but it keeps you from visiting the snack machine down the hall every fifteen minutes. Let's take a look a ten of the healthiest convenience foods around to keep you active, on the go and, of course, healthy:

1. Natural Nut Clusters
These little nut clusters are full of nutrition and great taste. Available at most stores, and in different nut assortments, nut clusters are naturally made and limit the amount of preservatives needed in the bag. With just the right amount of natural sugars and different nuts, a handful of these snacks will leave you satisfied.

2. Yogurt Raisins
A favorite of grownups and kids alike, yogurt covered raisins hold a host of benefits. The sweet and salty flavors mesh well together and provide a range of antioxidants. Great to grab and go, yogurt covered raisins can provide a healthy snack for anyone with a sweet tooth.

3. Trail Mix
Trail mix is a great source of protein as well as providing your fruit servings for the day. Grabbing a small bag of trail mix will give you the fiber needed to fill your stomach and keep you satisfied between meals. Choose varieties that are heavy on the nut, whole grain, and dried fruit, and light on the chocolate.

4. Protein Shake
Perfect for the morning rush, protein shakes are easy to make and quite versatile. Adding different fruit to the mix can change your drink from a strawberry banana bliss to a peanut butter banana dream. If you are not in the mood to make it yourself, you can always buy them prepackaged and save your energy for peeling the fruit.

5. Dried Fruit
Drying fruit is different than cooking it. When fruit is dried, the nutrients remain intact because it is not heated over 170 degrees. Fruit has plenty of antioxidant properties and amino acids, and when dried, the best parts remain. While you wouldn't want to overload on dried fruit because of the natural sugars that run rampant, a few servings of dried fruit is a healthy way to tide you over until dinner.

6. Bean and Cheese Burrito
While there are plenty of different bean and cheese burritos on the market, all of them are pretty much the same. You can find organic, all natural burritos, but most are fairly healthy; just read the labels. Of course, you can easily wrap up a stash at home and keep them in the freezer for quick snacks, lunches, or dinners.

7. Soups
It is amazing how satisfying soup can be. When choosing a soup to take along, choose the low sodium and low fat varieties. It is also important to stick with clear broths or stocks to cut down on the additives which are needed to keep the milky sauces from expiring. With the reduction in fat, salts, and additives, you will be able to enjoy a great bowl of soup without sacrificing health. Make your own soup simply at home by mixing a can of broth with some vegetables, rice, or pasta. Store in single serving containers in the freezer and you can have a healthy cup of soup in minutes.

8. Veggies and Dip
You can enjoy veggies with lots of yummy dip without sacrificing your good, healthy eating habits. Substituting hummus, baba ganoush or yogurt for the traditional ranch or blue cheese dressing, you will be able to enjoy your favorite veggies without all of the guilt.

9. Food Bars
There are a plethora of food bars to choose from. Lara Bars, Luna Bars, and Clif Bars, are a few well known varieties. Many of them are extremely health-conscious but each has their own market. Once you know what you are trying to accomplish (building muscle, losing fat, eating healthy) you can pick the bar for you and, voila, you have a healthy snack.

10. Oatmeal
Oatmeal is a fantastic snack. Not the instant kind, filled with sugar and artificial flavoring, but the actual kind you make on the stove. Sure, not often considered a convenience food, but when you think about the eight minutes it takes to make instant oatmeal and let it cool and then look at the nine minutes it takes to make regular oatmeal, you can decide the convenience for yourself. You may also just like to nibble on raw oatmeal, or toast it quickly and turn it into a quick granola feast.

No matter what your schedule, you can afford a few minutes each day to eat a healthy snack or two. The nutritional needs of an adult differ from that of a child. These snacks are meant to keep an adult satisfied without adding too many calories, fat, salt, or sugar to their diet. If maintaining a healthy weight is a concern, eating a couple light snacks during the day can help burn fat and keep you from eating larger meals than you have to. Snack smart with these convenient foods and stay healthy and fit.

The Truth About the "NEW" Fat Loss Cardio

Evolution of Fat Loss Cardio

I've been meaning to write this email for a long time. Today I'm going to give you the story of how I solved the problem of getting an efficient and effective fat loss program finished in 45 minutes. Essentially, how I invented Turbulence Training.

And then I'll end with a sample TT workout for you...

But first, let's take a trip down memory lane to the winter of 98-99. I was but a lowly grad student, studying the effects of androstenedione (the supplement taken by the mighty Mark McGwire during his record-breaking home run quest in '98).

In my study (which was published in the Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology for any science nerds like myself out there), we had guys use the supplement and go through a couple of weight training sessions. By February of '99 I was stuck in the lab, analyzing the blood samples using some fancy radio-active isotopes.

And when I say stuck in the lab, I mean STUCK. I'd get there at 7am, and record my last data point at 11pm. Sixteen hours of mad science. And if I wasn't there, I was downstairs in the medical library, studying papers on testosterone and training.

Now coming from a very athletic background, this sedentary lifestyle didn't sit well with me. But there I was, studying for a degree in Exercise Physiology and left with no time for exercise. Or so I thought.

Fortunately, I actually had a 50 minute window once per day of "down-time" while the lab's gamma-counter analyzed blood samples.

That left me 50 minutes to get to the gym (5 minutes across campus) and get a workout in the remaining 40 or so minutes. I knew that if I applied my studies to the workout, I could get maximum results in minimum time.

As a former athlete, I knew that I had to find a way to stay fit and to avoid the fat gain that comes with working long hours in a sedentary environment. And I also had to stay true to the high-school bodybuilder I once was, so there was no way I was willing to sacrifice my muscle to one of those long-cardio, low protein fat-loss plans that were popular at the time.

Instead, I had to draw on my academic studies and my experiences working with athletes as the school's Strength & Conditioning Coach.

I knew that sprint intervals were associated with more fat loss than slow cardio, and I knew that you could also increase aerobic fitness by doing sprints (but you can't increase sprint performance by doing aerobic training).

So clearly, intervals were (and ARE!) superior to long slow cardio.

I had seen first hand the incredible results of sprint intervals in the summer and fall, as the athletes made huge fitness improvements and shed winter fat in a short time using my interval programs. I knew that intervals had to be the next step in the evolution of cardio.

The biggest benefit of intervals? A lot of results in a short amount of time. I knew that I only had 40 minutes to train, and therefore I could only spend 15-20 minutes doing intervals.

Now onto the strength training portion of the workouts. I knew that a high-volume bodybuilding program wasn't going to cut it - I just didn't have time. But in the past year I had read so many lifting studies, that I knew exactly what exercises I needed to do to maximize my lifting time in the gym.

Those exercises were standing, multi-muscle, movements such as squats, presses, rows, power cleans, and plenty of other standing single-leg exercises. I knew those exercises would bring me far more results than those people sitting on machines would ever achieve.

And I also knew that I had to lift heavier than the average Joe or Jane Gym-goer lifts. I just knew that doing lighter weights and high-reps wasn't going to cut it. And a research study from 2001 later showed that I was right - when women did 8 reps per set, they had a significantly greater increase in post-workout metabolism than if they did 15 reps per set.

So I had my plan. Bust my tail over to the gym, through the cold, dreary Canadian winter afternoon, and do a quick but thorough warm-up (specific to my lifts - none of that 5 minutes on the treadmill waste of time).

Once I got through the warm-up, I did as many sets as I could in the remainder of the 20 minutes for strength training.

At that point, I knew that supersets were the only way to go if I wanted to maximize the number of sets I could do...so the non-competing superset of Turbulence Training was put in place.

By non-competing, I mean that the 2 exercises in the superset don't interfere with one another. So you can use upper and lower body exercises together, or pushing and pulling exercises. Just be careful not to use two grip-intensive exercises together in a superset - otherwise, one exercise will suffer, if not both.

And then I followed up the strength training with intervals, as I knew these had to follow the lifting, otherwise it would not be the correct exercise order. Remember, intervals first leads to premature fatigue. Lift first, cardio later. Forget that old wives tale about doing cardio first to burn more fat. That's junk.

You know, I remember the exact day and exact workout that this all came together into the Turbulence Training program. It hit me as I was finishing my intervals. I knew I had found something that was like fat loss magic.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a way to put it in a pill. But I've been able to put it down on paper in all of the TT manuals.

The exact workout I used that day went like this...

Warm-up
1 set of Bodyweight Squats
1 set of pushups
1 set of Squats with the empty bar
1 set of light dumbbell chest presses
1 set of moderate weight barbell squats
1 set of moderate weight dumbbell chest presses

Strength Training Superset #1
Barbell Squats paired with Dumbbell Chest Presses 3 supersets, aiming for 8 reps per side per set

Strength Training Superset #2
DB Rows paired with Barbell Forward Lunges 3 supersets, aiming for 8 reps per set

Stationary Bike Intervals
After a warm-up, I did 6 intervals of 45 seconds work and 45 seconds rest, finishing with a cool-down.

And from that point in time, I've tried to share this and all the other Turbulence Training workouts with as many men and women as possible. The same men and women that I would see day-in and day-out performing the same ineffective slow-cardio fat loss programs, and not making a darn change month after month. And every day they would see me, soaked in sweat, feeling great and looking lean, and finishing another TT workout.

Eventually I noticed these other men and women weren't around as consistently as before, and then soon enough they would drop out completely - after all, they weren't getting results with their slow cardio and aerobics classes (yep, those were still around in '99!).

And so here we are today...thousands of TT users later, with national fitness magazines like Men's Health, Men's Fitness, and Shape spreading the good word about Turbulence Training.

Thousands of TT users, dozens of personal trainers, and even several national fitness magazines all agree with me, Turbulence Training is the #1 way to fast fat loss.

Thanks for being a part of the TT Lifestyle Revolution, and for sharing this new and improved fat loss training and cardio system with the world.

So when you see someone frustrated with their ineffective fat loss program, tell them there is a better way. It's research-based, efficient, and most of all, effective. And yes, it goes against the crowd. But it works.

And it's now better than ever,

PS - Don't know where to start?

If you are a beginner, start by reading Dr. Mohr's nutrition guidelines...eating properly will be the biggest factor in your early success.

Beginners should also start with the Introductory TT workouts to prepare their muscles for the upcoming intense training.

For others, it's best to start with the Intermediate Level TT workouts. If those aren't enough of a challenge, you can move onto the Original TT workout and follow the 16-week advanced program right through.

If at any time you need a break, try the TT Bodyweight 4-week plan.

Increase fat loss with this old bodybuilder's trick

This is a classic fat loss trick of bodybuilders, figure competitors and fitness models... carb cycling.

http://bit.ly/eFUzJo

This is also the way many bodybuilders and physique athletes do "low carb" - raising and lowering carbs in a pre-determined cycle instead of always staying on low carbs:

Why? It supports training better... it's easier to follow... it helps you avoid plateaus and possibly even triggers 'body recomposition' - where you gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.

Here's how it works and what you can expect:

Cardio is a Joke for Fat Loss

Tis' the season for cardio horror stories.

One woman wrote, "I started out doing 5 hours of cardio per week. No results. So I upped it to 7 hours per week. Still nothing. Do you suggest I do more? I'm worried if I use your program, I won't get any results because you don't even have an hour of interval cardio per week. Please help!"

And from a gentleman on the Men's Health forum, "I took up running and didn't take up stretching until it was almost to late and almost destroyed a knee. What happened was that my IT bands got really tight and my inner quads didn't gain any strength so my knee cap got pulled out of place. I had an MRI done on my knee and have found that my knee cap has bruised my femur. "

Cardio horror stories are a dime-a-dozen. So here's the bottom line on cardio...

Long slow aerobic training remains the biggest practical joke in fitness. Marathon running for the average overweight person? Why don't you just tell someone to go play in traffic...oh wait, that's exactly what they are doing - all while crushing their joints with excess weight and repetitive pounding.

If you do long, slow cardio, its only a matter of time before you end up in a physiotherapist's office with all the others that do too much of the same thing...whether its running or spin classes, overuse injuries are far too common in the cardio world.

After all, what's easier to overdo, total body strength training done 3 times per week for 20 minutes, or the same cardio activity done for 6-9 hours per week?

Heck, I once knew a physiotherapist who was so addicted to spin classes that she had overuse injuries that prevented her from walking normally! Physio, heal thyself!

What a joke that cardio is...

But cardio fits our "more is better" mentality, doesn't it? We go right from a 3000 calorie meal at the Outback Steakhouse to our 60 minute cardio confessional sessions on the elliptical. More, more, more, more. And yet get less results?

There is a better way.

Take a peek at the weight room when you are in a gym. Then compare the bodies there to the bodies on the elliptical. You'll find the sculpted, toned physiques lifting dumbells and doing pushups, and the plump, "never changing physiques" spinning their tires over on the cardio equipment.

No matter what the city, no matter where the gym, its the same old story.

Burn fat, get lean, and boost your metabolism with resistance training. Finish with short interval training or even bodyweight circuits (free bonus gift for you) and you're off to the fat burning races.

The One Blood Test Everyone Should Have -- And Few People Get (Video)

What if you learned that, in spite of your doctor declaring you "well" at your last check-up, there is very likely a hidden problem that is slowly eating away at your health and vitality? For some, this problem creates anxiety and depression. For others, sexual problems... or weight gain... or chronic fatigue.

What's really going on? Hormone Imbalances in BOTH Women AND Men. And, doctors aren't checking for it, even though there is a simple blood test that can diagnose and solve the problem.

You can learn more about how hormone imbalances or "runaway hormones" are frequently the undetected cause of depression, mood swings, lost sex drive, weight gain, severe fatigue and much more by watching the video below.

Your Fat Loss Workout Questions Answered

Do you have questions about Turbulence Training? How it works? What's in the workouts? Or even what does it mean? Craig Ballantyne provides the answers yo the Turbulence Training system. Here's the q'n'a...

Q: First, can you tell us the basics about Turbulence Training?

Answer:
Turbulence Training is the result of years of study in the gym and in the research labs and library. From personal experience, I've found the best way to lose fat and get results in the least amount of time is to increase your training intensity.

With the right workout, you can get more fat loss results in less workout time. Period. That is the one and only goal of this training program. A better body in fewer workout sessions, and shorter exercise bouts.

That means:
a) Shorter interval workouts instead of long slow cardio workouts

b) More challenging strength training exercises, such as advanced bodyweight exercises and some traditional strength training free weight exercises

If you have two hours to spend in the gym everyday, you can feel free to stick to the same relatively ineffective and inefficient program of long cardio and light weights. But if you are like most men and women and have 45 minutes (or less) on only three days of the week to workout, then Turbulence Training will work wonders for you.

Male or female, almost everyone I see in traditional fitness centers could benefit from increasing the challenge in their workout. And they can also benefit from getting in and out of the gym faster.

So that's what led me to Turbulence Training. It's simple, no B.S., no-fluff, just-the-basics, results-oriented training. You don't need fancy gym machines or even an expensive gym membership. If you have a bench, a ball and some dumbbells at home, you are set.

Q: Okay so it's a training program that will melt body fat fast, but what makes it so effective?

Answer:
Most people are so darn hung-up on burning a specific number of calories on a cardio machine, that they don't care how long they spend in the gym.

But big deal. If you burn X calories over 30 minutes in the gym doing cardio, but don't boost your post-exercise metabolism, you're wasting the other 23.5 hours to burn a lot more calories.

That's what happens with slow, steady workouts that never change. Sure you burn a few calories in the gym, but there is no "turbulence" on the body to increase your metabolism outside of the gym.

Instead, by using challenging strength training, and choosing intervals over monotonous cardio, research has shown that your post workout metabolism is significantly greater. And an increased metabolism for an entire 24 hour period is what gives people results.

It's like putting money in the bank. It makes you more money even while you sit at home or sleep! That's the power of a more challenging workout.

And Turbulence Training workouts, and other "challenging" workouts are always exponentially more enjoyable than staring at a TV (or worse a wall) when "doing your time" on a cardio machine. You can get this great "metabolic turbulence" in a boot camp, with bodyweight, at home with dumbbells, or even in a busy gym.

Nothing is more effective than Turbulence Training if you only have 45 minutes, three times per week to workout.

=> http://turbulencetraining.rxsportz.com

Q: Can you explain why resistance training and bodyweight exercises are so effective for fat loss?

Answer:
Strength training is just one key for fat loss, it is essential to maximize your metabolism, and it is absolutely, positively paramount to building the best body of your dreams.

For those that doubt, start with bodyweight training. Not only is this method of strength training effective at helping you sculpt your body, but it is also empowering to your self-confidence and 100% applicable to your daily living.

Everything from carrying groceries to "seks" will be easier if you are stronger in the bodyweight exercises. Your mobility and stamina will increase, so that you will be able to carry your children to
bed easier, you will be able to do yardwork with less fatigue, and you'll literally improve your "zest for life" simply from mastering your bodyweight strength.

All of these benefits without touching a single free weight...but if you do go with free weights, you'll take your fitness to an even greater level.

Research from the 2001 meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine showed that female subjects boosted their post-exercise metabolism to a greater level when they did 8 reps per exercise, rather than 12 reps.

So low rep, strength training is best for boosting metabolism. It will get you more results in less time because it will continue to work while you recover. Train hard & train safe!

Medications Doctors Prescribe But You Don't Need (Video)

Doctors are writing tons of prescriptions for medications for Anxiety, Depression and more -- yet for many, the drugs are a waste of money that puts users at needless risk.

Why?

Because the problem is unrelated to the symptoms.

But sadly even their caring and thoughtful doctors don't give the right test to check for it. So, instead, medications are given, yet people don't feel better.

What's really going on...Hormone Imbalances or "runaway hormones" in BOTH Women AND Men.

To Your Healthy Hormones :

Arthur M.

Friday, January 14, 2011

Are you going to let this stop you? (Seriously?)

If I have been too subtle in the past, let me be absolutely clear today:

The time to do something, the time to take action to transform your body, improve your health and energy for your family, and dramatically boost your confidence is NOW.

I am even more passionate about this issue today than ever before, and with good reason.

In the last week I have received personal emails from so many new TT members who are struggling with their weight, looking for miracles, and ready to cave in to long, slow, dreadful cardio workouts...

Everyone around them, from the gym sales people to well meaning friends, and even the "energizer bunny TV exercise gurus" are trying to create fear that "without cardio you can't lose weight".

Baloney.

I'll spare you the details as you've probably heard them before, but the most important fact is that you will not dramatically transform your body and lose fat with long, slow, cardio workouts...you'll lose only your time and money.

And nothing makes me angrier than what I saw at the gym on Saturday, where a trainer was taking a beginner client through an excruciating 90 minute workout - including an hour of slow cardio (could you imagine the gall of the trainer to charge a client to monitor their cardio?!?!).

I almost ripped my workout journal in half from disgust as I listened to myth after myth come out of this trainer's mouth.

"Long slow cardio for at least an hour..."

"Light weights, high reps, for about 30-45 minutes after cardio..."

"Add some more cardio on an empty stomach first thing in the morning..."

ENOUGH!
What is going to take for people to realize that this approach is never going to work for them long-term?

Who has 3 hours per day to go to the gym?

Do they need to lose their family and friends before they realize that there is a much simpler way of changing their body?

As Dave Kekich says in Kekich Credo #84, "Nobody gets old by surprise."

The time to change is NOW.

So what should you do?

1) Get started in the 10th Turbulence Training Transformation Contest.

There is no cost to enter and you can WIN $1000 by losing belly fat.

Here are all of the details to start:

=> http://turbulencetraining.rxsportz.com

(Hurry, last day to enter is Saturday, January 15th.)

And remember: A 12 week transformation is only 0.3% of your life. If you focus on learning about your body for 12 weeks it will allow you to be lean forever.

The TT Transformation is the 0.3% solution you've been looking for.

2) Stick to the basics.

Sure it's easy to get caught up in the latest "weight loss craze", but it is essential for you to never stray too far from the basics.

a) Keep and review your food journal regularly.
b) Use a proven, structured workout program that gets you maximum results in minimum time - you don't even need a gym membership.
c) Surround yourself with social support at home, work, and online.

These are the most important factors in your fat loss success and all of those are covered with Turbulence Training here:

=> http://turbulencetraining.rxsportz.com

3) I want you to put a little urgency into your fat loss program.

IMAGINE: What if you had to lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks or you lost your job, could you do it?

Imagine you had to go to jail if you skipped your workout to sit on the couch instead - would you make that workout?

You just need to find compelling motivation to stick to your plan, so spend some time in reflection on that - and find YOUR REASON.

We have had transformation winners from all ages and all walks of life, including 44 year old Catherine from California, 58 year old Guttorm from Norway, 44 year old Hal from America, and 28 year old Emily living in Spain.

All of our winners have been busy, frustrated, intimidated, and definitely skeptical of what Turbulence Training could do.

But they all had big plans. They conceived and believed that they could make major accomplishments. And they lost 14, 27 and even 34 pounds of fat in just 12 weeks.

Remember...

Nobody gets old by surprise.

Nobody.

No one is in a "perfect environment" to transform their body. We all have stress and time limits. That's why you need a proven plan. Not one "made up" by an inexperienced personal trainer or your well meaning but informed friends.

If our past winners can do it, so can you. If they can find a way, so will you. You could live in Australia, England, Dubai, America, Canada, Argentina, or anywhere else - we all have an equal chance to transform our bodies and our lives.

So those are the 3 main things I want you to change today.

I have a lot of work to do to help you make this your best year ever, and I'm working on new programs that will take you through the contest to give you more results faster than ever.

Feel free to share this message with your friends and family if you think it will help them.

One of my favorite contest winners, Guttorm, actually received Turbulence Training as a gift from his wonderful daughter...and I don't think it is an exaggeration to say that it has changed his life.

Please let me know how Turbulence Training is changing yours.

The #1 Fat Loss Tip Of The Year

By Tom Venuto
BurnTheFat.com

If you stopped me on the street to ask me what my number one fat loss tip for this year is, there are a hundred different directions I could lead you. Of course, there is one strategy that stands out among the others, and in almost all cases, this would be the first thing I suggest. This is the one absolute requirement for weight loss, and it’s something you’ve probably heard of before. However, there’s one critical distinction about this familiar advice that you might not have considered - and this one thing makes all the difference in the world…

Let me quote Melvin Williams, PhD, professor emeritus of exercise science at Old Dominion University and author of the textbook Nutrition for Health, Fitness and Sport (McGraw Hill):

“Human energy systems are governed by the same laws of physics that rule all energy transformations. No substantial evidence is available to disprove the caloric theory. It is still the physical basis for bodyweight control.”

There are a variety of diet programs and weight loss “gurus” who claim that calories don’t count. They insist that if you eat certain foods or avoid certain foods, that’s all you have to do to lose weight. Dozens, maybe hundreds of such diets exist, with certain “magic foods” put up on a pedestal or certain “evil fat-storing foods" banished into the forbidden foods zone.

Other weight loss “experts” invoke the insulin/carbohydrate hypothesis which claims that carbs drive insulin which drives body fat. That’s akin to saying “Carbs are the reason for the obesity crisis today, not excess calories.”

They are all mistaken.

Of course, there IS more to nutrition than calories. Food quality and nutrition content matters for good health. In addition, your food choices can affect your energy intake. We could even point the finger at an excess of refined starches and grains, sugar and soft drinks (carbs!) as major contributing factors to the surplus calories that lead to obesity.

However, that brings us back to excess calories as the pivotal point in the chain of causation, not carbs. A caloric deficit is a required condition for weight loss - even if you opt for the low carb approach - and that’s where your focus should go – on the deficit.

Now, here’s that critical distinction…

You’ve heard it said, “exercise more and eat less” a million times. However, saying “focus on the deficit” is NOT the same thing. If you don’t understand the difference, you could end up spinning your wheels for years.

You could exercise more, but if you compensate by eating more, you cancel your deficit.

You could eat less, but if you compensate by moving less, again you cancel your deficit.

This type of compensation can happen unconsciously, which leads to confusion about why you’re not losing weight or why you’re gaining. That often leads you to make excuses or blame the wrong thing… anything but the calories.

Therefore, “focus on the deficit” more accurately states the most important key to weight loss than “exercise more and eat less.” Make sure you understand this distinction and then follow this advice.

Last but not least, keep in mind that there are a lot of ways to establish a deficit and many of those ways are really dumb. Eating nothing but grapefruits, cabbage, twinkies… but in a deficit?… Dumb!

A calorie deficit is required for fat loss, but once your deficit is established, the composition of your hypo-caloric diet DOES matter. That’s why any good fat loss program starts with calories but doesn’t stop there - you also need to look at protein, essential fats, macronutrients, micronutrients, food quality and how the diet you choose fits into your lifestyle.

Don’t let the simplicity of this idea fool you. This is the #1 key to your successful weight loss this year, and every year: Focus on the deficit!

Train hard and expect success,

Top 5 Fat Loss Myths

There are so many fat loss myths out there in "exercise-land" that I was hired by a fitness magazine to write about one myth each month.

After all, by now you've probably heard that if you don't do 60-minutes of cardio in your fat burning zone on an empty stomach while Venus is in line with Jupiter, you'll never burn fat.

The problem with myths is that not only are they wrong and give false hope to millions of people trying to lose weight, but they also waste your time and mental effort.

I have also seen these myths used as justification for cheating on a diet, watching countless men and women justify their "treats" because they believe they are on some type of magical exercise program or nutrition plan.

I could go on for days about fitness myths, but I cut my list from 30 down to the Top 5 Fat Loss Workout Myths today. I'll save the other 25 for future newsletters.

Myth #1: You have to do cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

Relax. You don't have to hop on the treadmill at 4:30am every morning. Let's allow common sense to dictate when and how you exercise.

If you want to work out first thing in the morning, and I know that is the best time for many TT readers, by all means, go ahead and do it. There's nothing magical about this time - although it is often the only time many of day many people have to themselves.

We need to think "outside of the hour" of exercise and realize that calorie burning and fat burning goes on for 24-hours. Forget about the theories and look at the big picture.

It doesn't matter when you exercise - as long as you exercise intensely and consistently. Focus on relatively high-intensity workouts to increase your metabolism for as many hours after exercise as possible. That is best done with interval training and resistance training.

Myth #2: You have to do your cardio in your "fat burning zone".

Again, nonsense.

While you might burn a larger proportion of total calories as fat when you exercise in your fat burning zone, you burn fewer calories overall by exercising at such a low intensity.

When you increase your workout intensity and get out of your so-called "fat burning zone", you burn more total calories, and as a result, more fat.

In addition, the "fat burning zone" training doesn't put "turbulence" on your muscles...so you don't burn many calories in the post-exercise time period. But with interval training, you burn a significant amount of calories for hours after training, and that leads to more fat loss.

I've worked with hundreds of people that have avoided the fat burning zone while still managing to lose dozens of pounds of fat. The "fat burning zone" is one of the biggest fitness myths of all time.

Myth #3: You have to do cardio for 20 minutes before you burn fat.

When I hear this, I picture a fat-burning switch in my body that turns on only after I've been doing "cardio" for 20 minutes. But what if I only exercise for 19 minutes and 59 seconds? Are you telling me that I won't have burned any fat? That's ridiculous.

What if I did it on an empty stomach in the morning and in my target heart rate zone? (read that one sarcastically!)

I'll say it one last time. We need to be more concerned with our 24-hour metabolism, not how much fat or even how many calories are burned during the workout.

Myth 4: Drinking ice cold water will help you burn calories and lose fat.

Standing in line at the grocery store is a great place to pick up the latest fat loss myths. You'll also find this one all over the Internet.

This myth often comes along with some calculations showing that by drinking 8 glasses of ice-cold water you can burn 70 calories per day. I don't believe that actually holds true in real life. Regardless, drinking cold water is not going to burn any more fat off your body than drinking room temperature water.

Don't get me wrong, I strongly believe you should drink 12 glasses of water per day, but the temperature of your water won't have any effect on your overall fat loss success.

Myth #5: Adding one pound of muscle will burn 50 extra calories each day.

Uh-oh, now I'm cutting down a myth that supports my use of strength training in a fat loss program. But I have an obligation to set the record straight about this extremely prevalent myth (even though I just saw a big name fitness expert perpetuate this myth in a recent article!).

This myth sounds so good. Add a pound of muscle, boost your metabolism 50 calories. That doesn't seem out of line at all.

But do the math for a guy that puts on 30 pounds of muscle. Does his metabolism really increase by 1500 calories? Absolutely not. For an average guy, that would require his resting metabolism to increase from 2500 calories to 4000 calories per day. How would he be able to keep any of that muscle with a metabolism like that? He'd have to eat like a pig forever.

So when you look at the big picture, you can see this little myth start to fall apart.

That's not to say you should stop your strength training, but just don't use this myth as an excuse to cheat on your diet.

Bonus Myth: Negative Calorie Foods Cause You to Lose Weight

According to the "experts", a negative calorie food requires more energy to digest than it provides you when you eat it. And included in the negative calorie food list are apples and bananas.

So by this logic, I would actually starve to death if I had nothing to eat but apples (because I would have a net energy loss from eating a so-called "negative calorie" food).

There is no such thing as a negative calorie food. It's a shame “experts” are out there promoting this stuff, and that so many people fall for it.

Instead, let the common sense fat loss principles apply. It's going to take consistent effort, working hard at your workouts and with your nutrition to get the results you want.

P.S. Here's the truth on fat loss from TT users...

"I Coach busy women with no time to look in the mirror, let alone adopt a whole foods lifestyle or exercise yet already! And yet, your Turbulence strategies show almost everyone that everyone has all of the time they'll ever need to include exercise as a fun, performance-promotion essential to their lives. This program is amazing and plenty challenging because it is simple. Clear but lets no one off the hook. I'm thrilled to say this is a great addition to any woman's arsenal of "what to do."

"I have been in possession of TT for a several weeks now; I absolutely enjoy the program. I can get in to the gym and rip though the supersets work up a great sweat and pump my energy levels up before I even get to the cardio portion of my work-out. I I have recommended this program to both beginner and veteran alike. Since starting TT I have dropped almost 2% of body fat and look forward to making my goal of 10% body fat in no time. This program is absolutely one of the best anywhere on the Web."
