Fwd: Tom Venuto a Fool?

hey - I've got something AMAZING for you!

Earlier today I saw Tom Venuto send the email below out to his list and I was blown away by the "April Fool's Offer" he made to his people!

I was so impressed by it I emailed Tom and asked him for permission to pass this along to YOU!

Check out the email below from Tom and I hope its of value to you.

I personally think you'd be a 'fool' NOT to take him up on it... ;-) 


PS - Here's the email from Tom:

10 At-Home Fat Burning Workouts

By Craig Ballantyne

If you want to get back in shape fast, then you need short, burst workouts that you can do at home - so you don't miss a workout on your busy schedule.

Fortunately, you can get great workouts even if you only have 15 minutes to exercise at home a few days per week.

That's the great news about short, burst workouts...a little bit of effort now has been proven by scientists to be just as effective - and even better - for fat loss and fitness results.

Here are just a few at-home workout ideas to get you started:

1. Use the first superset of your favorite Turbulence Training workout and do as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes. Why? Because the first superset always contains the most effective exercises.

2. "30 seconds on, 30 seconds off" doing kettlebell swings

3. Burpees

4. Kettlebell Exercises Paired With TRX Exercises (although this involves owning a LOT of equipment and having a lot of space)

5. TT Bodyweight Cardio Workouts (that don't require any equipment at all)

6. Intervals supersetted with ab exercises like planks or side planks (which are made harder by the high breathing rate)

7. Bodyweight Challenges - Like the Bodyweight Cardio 1000 (Challenge type workouts get you hooked on exercise and prevent you from skipping workouts)

8. DB-BW Fusion Workouts - Pair a dumbbell exercise and bodyweight exercise together in a superset and go back and forth as many times as possible in 10 minutes.

9. Hybrid Triset Workouts - 3 exercises performed in a tri-set, using one dumbbell exercise, one bodyweight exercise, and one kettlebell or stability ball exercise. Requires just a little equipment, but work great!

10. Adrenaline Circuits - Combining bodyweight exercises and short, burst adrenaline style interval training methods. (Adrenaline intervals are covered in the 31 Interval Workouts manual.)

What Causes Belly Fat (And What To Do About It)

by Jeff Anderson

What causes belly fat often depends on a variety of factors including a person’s diet, level of activity, body type, genetics, and hormonal balance.  Belly fat, or abdominal obesity, is more than a cosmetic challenge; it can seriously challenge your health as well.  This is often the reason that people target it and work hard to get rid of it.

Regardless of what causes belly fat, it’s a pretty good clue that you may have increased inflammation throughout the body.  This can create problems anywhere in your body, not just for your belly.  Fat in the abdominal area is additionally a concern for individuals who may develop high blood pressure as well as an increased risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease due to excess belly fat.

What Kind of Belly Fat Do You Have?

There are actually different kinds of fat on the human body.  Intramuscular fat is what runs throughout your muscle tissue.  It is a lot like the marbling in a steak.  Then we have subcutaneous fat.  This is the belly fat that lies directly beneath you skin and is the kind of fat that people think they’re working hard to get rid of.  Next, we have the visceral fat.  This fat is the dangerous kind that’s both in and around your organs and behind the muscular wall.  When looking at what causes belly fat, we find that it’s mostly visceral fat.

Weight Loss Tips To Get Rid of Belly Fat:

Many people hit the gym in order to get enough exercise to get rid of belly fat once and for all, but what they don’t realize is that they’re mainly targeting the subcutaneous fat, not the visceral fat.  Visceral fat, that hidden cause of belly fat, is best fought with your diet.

From a diet perspective, belly fat is usually caused by eating too may carbs.  Therefore, you have to cut back and limit the number of carbohydrates you consume.  Believe it or not, you don’t have to be very drastic with your carbohydrate limits.  Most people that want to fight visceral fat should keep their carbohydrate consumption below 200 grams a day.

You have to pay attention to the type of carbohydrates you consume.  If you consume high glycemic carbs, those from high sugar or processed foods, your insulin levels will spike, resulting in belly fat.  You should eat foods with low glycemic carbs or complex carbohydrates.  Stick with fresh vegetables, whole grains, whole grain bread and whole grain rice.  Low glycemic carbohydrates are released slowly into your bloodstream without causing your insulin levels to spike.

Belly Fat Tip To Get Rid Of Your Gut

One great tip that has worked extremely well for many of my clients that are trying to get rid of excess belly fat is timing when carbohydrates are consumed.  It’s best to eat high carbohydrate foods early in the day because this is when your metabolism is the highest.  As the day progresses, your metabolism begins to slow down.  During the late afternoon and evening your metabolism has slowed to a point of not efficiently burning excess carbohydrates.  Carbs that aren’t burned are stored as belly fat.  As you can see, it makes perfect sense to reduce your carbohydrate consumption in the evening.

This one tip will help you eliminate one of the biggest obstacles of losing your belly fat.  But if you’re serious about discovering the secret for how to lose weight fast, then you’ll find some more advanced fat-burning tips at as well as a complete fat-burning program that covers everything from diet to exercise and even how to balance hormones that are holding you back from losing!

It’s Dina, and I have a question for you…

Over the last several weeks we’ve been talking about some really important health, nutrition and weight loss issues in the Asian Diet Revolution.

All it’s going to take is 60 days. That’s it. Just 60 short days before you’ll begin to see — AND FEEL — a huge difference in your appearance, your health and your vitality.

Now here’s my question: Have you started on the Asian Diet Revolution? If so, PLEASE send me your results! I’d love to hear from you, and might even feature you on my website. (Why not, you deserve bragging rights!)

But if you haven’t started yet – what’s stopping you? You know, there’s a very complex formula economists use when talking about setting goals and seeing results. Here it is:

How to lose your most STUBBORN fat

Over the past few weeks you've probably heard A LOT about my good friend and fat loss "guru" John Romaniello's brand new fat-busting program, Final Phase Fat Loss.

Well, I've got some great news for you -- as of today, March 15th, the Final Phase Fat Loss exclusive 52% OFF pre-sale is OPEN, and YOU are invited via this special link: <------- Your exclusive 52% off invitation

Several IMPORTANT things to be aware of:

1. This program is NOT for everybody:

Truth is, if you're a total beginner, this is probably not the best workout to start off with. These workouts are HARD (but brutally effective -- in fact, FPFL is the exact training regimen that John uses to get his clients down to SINGLE DIGIT body fat).

So, if you haven't been exercising for a long while, Final Phase Fat Loss probably isn't for you.

But this program definitely IS for you if you fall into one of these 3 categories:

**You're struggling to lose the last 10-15 lbs of stubborn fat (if this is you, you simply won't find a better program to achieve this goal, period)

**You've lost "some" weight, but have hit a plateau (this is THE program to "revive" your fat loss)

**You suffer from regional "problem area" fat storage located on your

a) butt/hips/thighs (women) or if you're a guy, the dreaded "man boobs",
b) love handles, or
c) stomach/belly

FPFL includes workouts to specifically target all three of these problem areas through strategic hormonal manipulation

2. VERY IMPORTANT (TODAY ONLY) - In addition to getting a whopping 52% OFF, anyone who order on Day 1 (that's today) is going to get HUGE fast-action bonus:

The Bonus - You see, later this year our other good friend and nutrition author Joel Marion is releasing a brand new diet product called The Big Breakfast Diet, but check this out...

For any and EVERYONE who orders FPFL 2.0 on Day 1, you're going get the "Beta" version of the The Big Breakfast Diet months before the program even releases...

...100% FREE as a fast-action bonus!

That's TWO killer fat loss programs for the price of...ONE HALF.

But the Big Breakfast Diet bonus is only for those who act quickly and pick up their copy today: <------- 52% off the Big Breakfast Diet F.REE (today only)

And at 52% OFF, it's less than the cost of a single personal training session: <------- 52% off + the Big Breakfast Diet F.REE (today only)

To your fat loss success,

Get Your Swimsuit Figure By Eating Healthy

Getting ready to hit the beach? You want a good swimsuit figure but you don’t get a swimsuit body overnight. It takes time. The good news is, if you start now, you will be well on your way to a great body by the time you hit the beach.

Start by keeping a picture of your dream swimsuit nearby to help keep you motivated to eat healthier. Don’t be hasty and go out and purchase your swimsuit before you get into shape. Wait until you feel good about yourself and the work you've done to tone up. Then shop to your heart’s content. The bonus is the closer you get to summer the more sales you'll find!

Eating for your summer body is not about starvation. For someone to stick to a new way of eating, it has to become a lifestyle change. This means that your diet has to provide both healthy foods and a few pleasures to keep you interested.

Increase your whole grains. Grains contain a lot of fiber. Fiber keeps the digestive system working properly. No one wants to be bloated in their new swimsuit! Fiber grabs onto fat while it gets digested. Fiber also keeps you feeling fuller longer so you don’t overeat.

Drink your water. Water is crucial in everyone's diet. It keeps the human machine in proper working order. Water cleanses the inside of toxins that can harm the body and make it harder to lose weight.

Eat more often. To get the best your body has to offer, you need to feed it the good stuff a little at a time, all day long. Consider more fruits, vegetables, lean meat, fish and dairy. Eat whole fresh foods to get the best nutritional value and fiber. Avoid highly processed foods which miss many of the nutrients your body needs. More frequent lighter meals also increases your metabolism.

Limit the sweets. Empty calories add fat and will sabotage your efforts to lose weight and look great. If you must have something sweet, try having one small piece of dark chocolate or a bowl of frozen yogurt. Even a fruit parfait or a smoothie will tame that sweet tooth without any damage to all your healthy eating.

Get sleep. Without proper rest, the body can’t repair itself and get you ready for the next day. Stress is also more of an issue and that can lead to increased levels of cortisol in your system. This hormone is your enemy if you want to lose belly fat.

Remember, there are no quick fixes to weight loss. Choose a healthy lifestyle that includes good food, exercise, and plenty of rest and your fitness will last far beyond one swimsuit season – your good health will last a lifetime.

5 Proven Nutrition SWITCHES for Faster Fat Loss

By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

Every day in March, I've committed to sharing a Training and Nutrition "SWITCH" to help you lose fat. Here are 5 of the most popular nutrition switches I've posted so far:

Nutrition SWITCH #1 - No More Dessert for Breakfast

If you want to lose fat, stop eating dessert for breakfast.

Let's be honest, most of what people eat for breakfast would qualify as dessert if served at any other time of day. So stop with sugary cereals, muffins (let's be honest, we all know that muffins = cake), granola bars, and bagels.

Nutrition SWITCH #2 - Switch Your Eating Schedule

If you find that you often "binge snack" at night, try having a bigger late afternoon healthy snack, and then having a later healthy dinner.

There's no magic to not eating after a certain time. I often eat a big healthy dinner and go to sleep within 30 minutes. That won't make you fat. Eating a pint of ice cream & bag of chips every night while you watch TV makes you fat.

Nutrition SWITCH #3 - Minimize the Junk

Your house doesn't need to be stocked like the local 7-11. Keep the minimum amount of treats at home to avoid mutiny and keep treats out of sight & hard to access.

Make healthy foods (giant bowls of fresh fruit) visible and places encouraging notes to eat the fruit in the kitchen.

Put ready-to-eat produce in most visible part of the fridge & hide junk in the back. All research proven to increase healthy food consumption. And when it's your time for a
cheat meal, you can enjoy it guilt-free.

Nutrition SWITCH #4 - Go From Processed to Natural

When possible, switch out all processed or "modified" carbohydrates and replace it with a fruit, vegetable, or nut.

For example, instead of toast with eggs, have an apple and add spinach to the eggs. Instead of a processed carbohydrate with your morning coffee, have 1oz of raw nuts (almonds or walnuts). With steak, eat broccoli, not mashed potatoes or French fries.

Nutrition SWITCH #5 - Cut the Sugar From Your Post-Workout Drink

If you're focused specifically on fat loss, you do NOT need to add sugar (or any variations of sugar) to your after training drink.

I interviewed top nutritionists about this in 2010, and they all agreed that for fat loss, you don't need to force post-workout sugar into your body. So take it out.

BONUS Nutrition SWITCH - Become Your Own Nutrition Expert

Stop getting fooled by fad diets. Become an expert yourself by going through a 2-week "intensive nutrition course".

Here's how:

Eat a wide variety of food for 2 weeks and record all of your meals. You'll quickly know the calorie counts of all foods and proper serving sizes AND most importantly, what
works for YOU. Very simple. Very effective.

Research proven tips to help you eat better.

If you want to Lose Fat – Stop the CONFUSION Right Now!

If you’ve ever spent even 2 minutes on the internet, it’s pretty clear that there is no shortage of weight loss, fat loss, and diet advice out in the world today.

In a way, this is kind of a good thing. If someone is motivated to lose weight and change the direction of their health, they’ve got a ton of wonderful information at their fingertips.

But, in a way, this is a very BAD thing as well, because based on what I’ve seen on a lot of weight loss and diet sites, the information is inaccurate, not scientifically based, and, in some cases, could even be detrimental to someone’s health. That is usually where the confusion begins…and for some…the INSANITY!

If you’re not a nutrition and exercise expert yourself, how are you supposed to differentiate the good from the bad?

Well, I’ve got some pretty great news for you today. Not only have I found a great resource for you…jam packed with real, useful, accurate and easy to understand information…it also happens to be F*ree!

That’s right. The following 20 minute video I’m about to share with you contains a ton of great fat burning information you can put to use right away. Actually, I’ve even had some people tell me that by just using the principles contained in this video, they were able to easily lose their first 10 lbs. How great is that?

You too can watch this F-R-E-E video by clicking the link below:





If you want to know…

• Which foods you may think are helping you lose weight (but are actually causing you to gain weight)
• Which Carbs, Proteins, and Fats are the best to eat for maximum fat loss
• How to regulate specific hormones to cause fat burning in your body
• Exactly which strategies will never work when it comes to weight loss

Then this video is for you!





I know you’ll enjoy the information as much as I did.

Is your stomach in knots?

Here is another email I received from the author of Asian Diet Revolution. Dina has some good advice for a condition common to most of us so I’m passing it on to you.


Dina here… Is your stomach in knots?

I’m not talking about the current world situation. (Though if the truth be told, it’s rather hard not to go slightly nuts thinking about all that’s happening!)

I’m talking about after you eat – does it sometimes feel like you’ve swallowed a rather nasty baseball, with it just sitting there – causing bloating and pain?

If you listen to all the commercials on TV, they’ll have you believing this is normal, and all you need are one of those fancy purple pills.

Uh uh. That’s probably one of the worst things you can do.

Here’s why your food is probably going undigested:

– You’re swallowing without thoroughly chewing. Chewing your food is important for 3 reasons: 1st – it breaks down what you’re eating into smaller pieces. 2nd – the ptyalin in your mouth (an enzyme) starts the digestion process and readies the food for your stomach, and 3rd – it’s by chewing we get to taste & enjoy what we eat!

– If you’re eating processed food, the gunk you swallow is far harder to break down and assimilate.

– If foods like vegetables are overly cooked (such as cabbage) the heat will actually deactivate the essential enzymes within the plant itself. (That’s why cooked cabbage can cause severe bloating, but coleslaw almost never does!)

And here’s a surprising reason:

– Your stomach is not producing ENOUGH acid! That’s right – most heartburn and poor digestion doesn’t stem from too much acid, but too little.

By taking pills neutralizing stomach acid, you’re actually putting the body into panic mode – it senses the acid is going fast, and goes into overdrive to produce even more.

Here’s a little secret my Mom (a 5 star chef by the way!) taught me. If you feel bloated or have that acidy, lumpy feeling after eating – place a tablespoon or so of apple cider vinegar in a small glass of lukewarm water and drink it down.

Your stomach will do a small somersault or two – then you’ll immediately feel a whole lot better! You’ve given your body what is was looking for, and not some chemical panacea.

For more tips about proper nutrition and healthy eating, why not get a copy of my Asian Diet Revolution?

It’s filled with fascinating facts, plus pages of really yummy recipes.

To a much healthier you,

Dina Zain Smith

P.S. When sitting down to eat with the family, make it a point to leave the problems of the day behind you. Few things can ruin even the tastiest meal than discord and tension at the dinner table. To be well, you have to eat well, and to eat well you have to feel well!

Dina’s book is full of important insights about what we eat and I recommend  this as mandatory reading for anyone concerned about their health.

My best wishes for your health,

Arthur M.

Best Exercises for Fat Loss

In the 80's and 90's workout magazines that I read, fat loss workouts recommended isolation exercises, like the leg extension machine and the chest-fly machine as being best for helping your sculpt your body. But we've come a long way since then...

Today I want to show you how to choose the best exercises, and even the right exercise order, to get the most fat loss and body-sculpting in the least amount of time.

Let's start with some simple rules on how to pick the exercises.

1. Exercises should always work multiple muscle groups.
2. Exercises should be done standing, whenever possible.
3. Exercises should be effective for fat loss even if only the bodyweight version is used (i.e. squats).
4. The hardest (most intense) exercises should always be first.

Before I explain the rules in detail, let's first cover the warm-up.

Every Turbulence Training workout starts with a general warm-up. By now, you should know that I don't like the traditional 5-minute cardio workout (excluding those who need it for injury purposes, according to their health care professional).

The purpose of the warm-up is to specifically prepare your muscles for action. Walking on a treadmill for 5 minutes does little in terms of preparing your body for strength training. Therefore, I start every workout with a general, total body circuit.

When putting together total-body workouts and warm-ups, I think about 4 "hot zones" on the body. And I have to address all four hot zones with exercises in the warm-up. The hot zones are:

a) Back of Legs
b) Upper Back
c) Chest
d) Abdominals

Why do I only worry about the back of legs? Because almost all multi-joint movements that train the back of the legs will also stress the quadriceps, even if only in a static contraction.

Take for example, this general warm-up (to be used in place of the treadmill):

A) Y-Squat (hold your hands over your head in a "Y" formation) – 15 reps
B) Close-grip Pushups (kneeling or advanced) - 8 reps
C) Stick-up - 8 reps

Hopefully you can see how that hits all 4 hot zones through dynamic and static contractions. If you don't, let me know.

Ok, now we are ready to move on to the meat of the workout.

As stated above in the rules, we must pick our hardest, most intense exercises first, and perform them in sets of low reps.

Here's a Turbulence Training bodyweight-only, body-sculpting workout routine that I've designed to show you the correct exercise order, and the types of exercise that are best for changing your body.

I'll be using this exact workout with one of my high-profile movie stars this afternoon. She needs to keep her body sculpted without bulking up. But she still needs to be strong, lean, and athletic for her fight scenes in the movie she is filming.

1A) Split Squat (8 reps) [Advanced use the Bulgarian Split Squat]
1B) Elevated Pushup (8 reps per side) [Kneeling or Advanced)
2A) Step-up (12 reps)
2B) Bodyweight Row (8 reps) (Beginner or Advanced)
3A) Stability Ball Jackknife (15 reps)
3B) Back Extension on Ball (15 reps)

Each superset (i.e. 1A & 1B) is done 3 times with no rest between exercises A and B, but with a 30 seconds rest after B, before you repeat the superset.

Following the strength portion of the workout, complete the workout with Interval Training.

Each exercise uses multiple muscle groups, so that more calories will be burned during and after exercise.

We also design each superset to use two intense, non-competing exercises. We use low reps where possible. We train for strength at the start of the workout when we are fresh.

What do I mean by non-competing?

That means, you should be able to perform the two exercises back to back with minimal fatiguing effects from the prior exercise. You have to pair exercises that don't use the same muscle groups.

The rules of exercise selection and exercise order will allow you to get lean, boost your metabolism, and to train with a high-intensity throughout the entire workout.

So when I put the exercises together, it is all about putting them in the right order to get you lean.

Lose Belly Fat - How To Lose Belly Fat

By Vince DelMonte

Almost everyone wants to lose some excess fat on their body somewhere. For the vast majority, they're looking to lose belly fat and they want to lose belly fat fast! Whether you want to admit it or not, most of us spend far too many months of the year overeating and then scramble at the first sign of warm weather in order to remove what's accumulated over the time. Unfortunately, if you're trying to learn how to lose belly fat, it's not exactly a quick fix.

The problem most individuals run into is they overlook how difficult it can be to lose belly fat off their body. If the truth be told, a fat belly is probably one of the hardest areas to successfully remove because it's made up what is known as 'stubborn' fat.

You're body is actually physiologically slightly different when it comes to fat around the abdominal region. What's the reason for this? Primarily, it's the first place we tend to store fat and where body fat is needed for protection the most - to protect the organs and internal structures.

As such, your fat belly is going to do everything it can to hold onto it. Not a good situation in your quest to lose belly fat.

In order to outsmart this, you're going to have to work really hard. That's not to say it can't be done - it most certainly can, you just have to have realistic expectations about the time line you will achieve this goal over and how much effort you'll have to put in.

First things first, lets talk about exercise to lose belly fat. First, hit the weights. When lifting, be sure you are lifting as heavy as you possibly can, as this is what will ramp up your metabolism the highest. You want to shoot for the 6-10 rep range, as this is most appropriate for metabolic effects.

Second, get that cardio up there. Don't do hours on end though, focus on doing sprints. In fact, better yet is to sprint first, then do more steady state cardio afterwards. This will help to release the fatty acids from the tissue (mobilize them) and then burn them off during the steady state cardio. This type of set-up can be far more effective at getting that stubborn fat off your body than doing a typical cardio session is.

Lastly, check over that belly fat diet. Too many fat or carbohydrates calories will slow your progress, while protein, generally speaking will help due to the fact the body burns more calories just digesting it.

This can be taken too far though - there is no need to exceed 1.5 grams per pound of body weight, but keeping it up around that level is your best approach. Then, fill in the remainder of your calories with carbohydrates around the workout period and fat during the other times.

As long as you are patient with the process and continually push yourself in the gym, there is no reason why within time, you can't be sporting your own set of six-pack abs.

It’s worse than I thought

This is one email I hope you’ll read from beginning to end. It’s that important.

You know I’m a cheerleader for natural, unprocessed food – and it’s one of the cornerstones of Dina’s Asian Diet Revolution.

You also know I’m dead set against eating ANY GMO (Genetically Modified) foods, just as Dina says in her book.

But I just came across a chilling statistic, and here it is:

*** “7 out of every 10 processed food items are already genetically modified, and it’s only going to get worse.” ***

Think of it… all those pre-packaged meals, stuff in cans, stuff in boxes… all swimming in GMO altered “food.” (I put “food” in quotes because I truly believe it’s not food, but a biologically poisoned time bomb.)

GMO’s exist because they are supposedly more resistant to disease, and can thrive when sprayed with certain glyphosate-based pesticides that destroy competing weeds.

One problem: The glyphosate used in the pesticides enters the GMO plant itself – and when that plant is eaten – some of it enters you.

What so bad about glyphosates? I won’t even go into how this substance binds with minerals in the soil, robbing plants from crucial nutrients, such as iron, zinc, copper, manganese, magnesium, calcium, boron.

The really scary thing is that glyphosates have been linked to cell, membrane and DNA damage. Lab rats fed glyphosate suffered a 50% mortality rate!

Believe what you will, but the bottom line for me is this: GMO produce is not safe, no matter what anyone says. I have no doubts that in the coming years, we’re going to see diseases and ailments never before encountered in human history.

Do yourself a favor. Get Dina’s book, In it she lists the actual GMO foods you should avoid at all costs. Then go through your pantry and do some serious housecleaning.

It’s your very wellbeing we’re taking about, and the well being of your family.

To a much healthier you,

Arthur M.

P.S. It’s almost as if nature itself has started taking her revenge. The glyphosates that are supposed to be killing all the weeds? They’ve given rise to what are called “super weeds” – plants so resistant they soon overtake competing crops, and virtually laugh in the face of more pesticides.

Weight Loss Tips - Effective Weight Loss Tips to Help You Succeed

By Vince DelMonte

In today's world, almost everywhere you look people are looking for weight loss tips. Weight loss has become the primary objective of those who are going to the gym. They want to lose weight and they want it NOW. Luckily, there are some weight loss tips that will make this process a great deal easier, ensuring that you can succeed without feeling like you're putting your body through torture.

Calorie Intake

The first couple quick weight loss tips are number one, be sure that your calorie intake is not too extreme. Think about it. Put yourself on a starvation diet and you are just asking for a rebound binge. Sure, you may have great will power and will be able to withhold for a few days, but you will soon cave and when you do, chances are you'll eat a vast quantity of food in response to starving for so long.

If your caloric intake is too low to begin then where will you go when you hit a plateau? For example, a male will be far more successful starting with 2800 calories and dropping 200 calories every 2 weeks as he evaluates his progress instead of starting at 2000 calories and only having one direction to go - starvation which will eventually turn off his metabolism and stall his weight loss progress.

Gradual Progression

Secondly, keep in mind current "nutrition level." Do you really need a bodybuilder pre-contest diet or do you just need to start with the basics? If you begin with a meal plan that is too extreme then you will not be able to follow it and regardless of how well the diet is designed, if you aren't able to stick with it, it isn't going to work very well. My favorite line of mine is, "The best diet that works is the one that you follow." Adopting a more gradual nutrition approach, just like your training, would help with your adherence levels, which would then translate to you being better able to maintain it. One of the best weight loss tips I gave a client who was eating 2 double cheese burgers a day was to start eating one double cheese burger! Why didn't I recommend he eat a steamed chicken breast instead since that is the superior choice? The steamed chicken breast, obviously the mores superior choice would be too much of a change and not create adherence and eventually failure.

Celebrate With a 10% Meal

Another few fast weight loss tips are that you should always be incorporate a "victory meal" to reflect your accomplishment and progress. If you have gone a few weeks without any cheat meals and are dropping consistently then kick back and have a beer or do something that is "rewarding" - just don't get too carried away and don't get back on track. You won't sabotage weeks of dieting with one "victory meal" as long as you don't adopt a mindset that this celebration represents an "ending." The key is to not get carried away and to use this as a reward, refocus and get ready for another 4-8 weeks of hard training and dieting. Consider a "celebration meal" every few weeks and then get back on track!

Smart Exercise Program

Next up, when selecting the exercise program you'll go on, again, be sure not to choose something that's overly extreme. Too much cardio can actually hinder your results, so you'll want to avoid that as much as possible. Three to four sessions a week along with a properly planned out diet should be plenty to get you seeing results. If you are having to do hours a day in order to just lose a pound, something else is off with either your diet (most likely) or your weight training program.

Clear The Clutter

Finally, the last quick weight loss tip to keep in mind is that before starting any diet program, you should rid the house of any foods that could be problematic. If the food is not readily available, it makes it sort of hard to eat it. Consider you home a "haven" and that it's one thing to have slip ups occur outside of your home but not inside of your home where you can control what is coming in and out. Sabotaging your own weight loss success, in your own home, is embarrassing.

By clearing yourself of the problem foods before you start, you overcome a huge obstacle already.

Replace these 'bad' foods with ones that are much healthier and will still taste good, so when you do get hungry, they are what you reach for rather than the old foods which caused your weight gain in the first place.

Weight Loss Programs - Finding A Weight Loss Program That Works

By Vince DelMonte

If you're currently on the search for weight loss programs, you'll need to consider a variety of things. All weight loss programs are not created equally; some will have a much higher rate of success than others.

Knowing exactly what to look for when searching for weight loss exercise programs will help enable you to make a decision that will get you the results you're looking for.

First, if you're like many people, you probably want a free weight loss program. The thing to keep in mind though is that these are free for a reason. They are targeted towards the general public and as such, give such broad suggestions that while it may work for one person, it will not work for you. For example, if you are a 200 pound man and the free weight loss programs you are finding are more geared towards a 140 pound woman; you can see why this would obviously be problematic.

The first thing to ask yourself when you see a weight loss diet program is how personalized is it. I'm sure you've heard the saying that "General programs produce general results," which is very true. The more personalized and targeted the solution is to your individual situation, the higher your chance of consistent weight loss.

Next, ask whether it allows for enough calories to keep you from completely starving. While it may be tempting to try a very low calorie approach to get the weight loss process over and done with, usually these end up backfiring on you, leaving you gaining more weight back after you go off them than you had when you first started. Your goal is to burn the fat, not starve the fat and the majority of weight loss programs force your metabolism to shut down which leads to muscle loss - a doubled edged sword contributing to greater fat storage on your body.

Another component that you'll want to factor in is exercise. A good weight loss exercise program will combine both cardiovascular training along with weight training. Those weight loss exercise programs that have you doing hours of cardio on end are not going to be all that beneficial at retaining your lean muscle tissue mass, nor time efficiency. Since, your lean muscle tissue is what keeps your metabolism the highest; it's what you really want to focus on the most. Neglecting this aspect of your workout is a huge mistake and does not maximize the 24 hours in a day you have to burn fat.

Finally, keep in mind that any weight loss program you go on you should be maintainable in the long run. A program that you're only able to maintain in the very short term is likely to not be overly beneficial as if lifestyle changes are not made with regards to how you're eating; chances are that the weight will be back at some point in the near future. Your ultimate goal is a lifestyle change, not a temporary change.

So, if you want to get on a weight loss program that works, be sure to check out Your Six-Pack Quest. As you'll discover when you sign up for this plan you'll get 9 balanced meal plans, 84 days each, ranging from 1200 to 2800 calories. You have literally zero guess work because these plans include grocery lists, a wide variety of meals, tasty meals, and exact times to eat. Follow the plans to the letter and you'll have a ripped and sexy six pack 6 months tops.
