7 Simple Rules For What You Should Be Eating Right Now

By Nick Nilsson

What you eat on a daily basis determines just about everything you can possibly imagine that goes with your body...your health, mental energy, body composition, athletic performance...you name it and what you eat has an impact on it.

These 7 simple rules are here to give you a little nudge in the right direction and make things a little easier for you in your own daily choices.

Rule #1 - If your great-grandmother wouldn't recognize it, don't eat very much of it
Many of the highly-processed pseudo-foods weren't around 50 years ago. Food was more "real" back then and it's an ideal you should strive for now. This basically means choose foods that are less processed and closer to their natural state. Notice I didn't say "don't eat it"...which leads me to Rule #2...

Rule #2 - No food ultimatums
The moment you say "I will never have pizza again," you will immediately start thinking about how much you miss having pizza, even if you hardly eat pizza to begin with. It's like telling somebody not to think about elephants...you just did it, didn't you :). Same idea with food. That's why I never tell myself I can never have something...if I've got a specific goal and that food won't help me achieve it, I just say it's not on my list right now and I can have it later. No big deal.

Rule #3 - Don't keep junk in the house
And don't tell me you need to have junk food and sweets in the house "for the kids." If it's really for the kids, lock it up in a closet and give your kids the keys so you can't get at any of it then tell me if it's for the kids. Here's the other thing...your kids don't need that junk either!

Anyway, off on a tangent there - that's one excuse that gets me really whipped up. Bottom line is this...if you don't have it in the house, it takes a lot more effort to eat it. If it's in the house, it'll get eaten. If it's not, it won't. Simple.

Rule #4 - Multi-course meals will wipe out your digestion
The more different foods you eat in one meal, the harder it will be for your body to digest it all. Different foods and nutrients require different enzymes to digest...by combining too many foods in one meal, you will overload your digestive system and make it less efficient. If you frequently have digestive issues when you eat, try something radical and eat just one food per meal and see what happens. This is especially true of fruit and dairy. Fruit is best eaten separately and by itself.

Rule #5 - You don't have to eat 6 meals a day
That "small, frequent meals" rule you may be familiar with is actually based on a study that showed a very small increase in metabolic rate when a person eats a meal. This evolved into the idea that eating a bunch of small meals helps increase fat loss and nutrient utilization.

Naturally, this was immediately seized upon my supplement manufacturers who promoted the idea that you can't possibly eat FOOD that many times a day, so you should take our meal replacement supplement for those extra 3 meals.

Here's the thing...no study has ever confirmed that it's more efficient to eat 6 small meals as opposed to 3 big meals (or even 2!) in terms of body composition results. ZERO. Think about this...if you're constantly supplying your body with food, why would it need to burn bodyfat for energy then?

Rule #6 - Try to eat organic whenever possible
It's true...eating healthy can actually be pretty expensive. Unhealthy foods are generally cheaper because they can be manufactured in large quantities. Healthy foods are more expensive because they are more labor-intensive.

The payoff is that you won't die as soon when you eat healthy foods as opposed to unhealthy foods. I know that's putting it bluntly, but it's true. And you won't suffer from all the food-related diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes and MANY others (honestly, the vast majority of diseases and conditions being treated by doctors today are entirely avoidable with a good diet).

So when it comes to eating organic, just do the best you can. Get it when you can and realize this...when a food is of higher quality, it's more digestible and you're going to get more nutrition out of it and you can eat smaller servings (at least that's what I keep telling myself when I eat grass-fed beef...DANG is that tasty...it's hard not to eat twice as much of it).

Rule #7 - Take supplements intelligently
I judge supplements primarily on their nutritional value, not for how many bolts of lightning appear in their magazine ads. The majority of the supplements I take are there to help support my nutritional state, not to muck with my physiology.

I take a multivitamin, protein, vitamin C, vitamin D3 (for immune system function - VERY important in the winter!), magnesium, krill oil, fish oil, BCAA's, K2, calcium, and a few other things, depending on my current goals. All that exotic garbage you see ads for in the magazines is mainly just that...exotic garbage. You don't need it.


These 7 rules are just a starting point...the key thing to remember is that good nutrition doesn't have to be complicated. If you know and follow some simple rules, you can eat healthy and nutritious food without worry and get the results you're looking for!

Lose Weight While Sleeping?

There is some breakthrough research coming out about fat loss.. and this one really has us excited.

Based on the results.. the respiratory rate INCREASED during exercise AND when resting. That means, the subjects burned more calories not only during exercise - they also burned more calories when they were RESTING.

Check out the ingredient responsible for the incredible results here

Eat Less Sugar

Sugar. Even the word sounds sweet.

Did you know that by some experts’ count, we are all eating the equivalent of 160 pounds of sugar each year! And that that sugar is one of the worst ingredients - some say poison - you can put into your body?

If you crave chocolate, or cake, or any other sweet stuff, the fact is, like most people, you’re probably addicted to sugar. Of all bad habits, it’s one of the worst. In fact, this is one bad habit that can poison your entire life.

But you can change that. Because like smoking, you can break bad habits - and addictions. The choice is yours.

Step 1: You Decide
The first step, then, is choosing to trade your bad habits for good ones. Out with the bad sugary foods,and in with the healthy. It’s as easy as that! With this one step, you can change your entire future.

Once you’ve made up your mind, the next step is to look around and evaluate the foods you’re putting into your body. Why are you eating them? Are you getting any nutrition from them? There’s a lot of learning and taking stock ahead. This won’t be easy.

Changing your beliefs and attitudes about yourself and your eating is one of the most difficult challenges you will ever face. But it can be done with good old-fashioned stick-to-it determination, effort, and education. Many people just like you have kicked the sugar habit. I know it can be done - I’ve helped people do it. Not only did they get a new outlook on life, they lost weight in the process!

Recipe for Success
If you’re to be successful at breaking the sugar habit, then it’s important to understand how sugar affects your body. And how healthy food - your new, good habit - can give your body the nutrients it craves. Once you learn that, you will never again want to put poison into your body.

Is It Time For A Personal Trainer?

Fitness experts and enthusiasts predict that 2012 will be the year of the personal trainer. More and more people are trying to lose weight and get in shape. An expert can help you reach your goals. Additionally, personal trainers can specialize to help specific groups of people reach their goals. If you’re striving to lose weight, get in shape, and improve your life then it may be time for a personal trainer.

Reasons to Hire a Personal Trainer
There are many benefits to hiring a personal trainer. They can help motivate you. They may have specialized knowledge or they may be able to help you reach specific goals. Additionally, a personal trainer may be able to help you focus in on proper form and technique. This helps you prevent injury and get the most benefit from any exercise or movement.

Specialty Needs
If you have specialty needs then a personal trainer is an exceptional idea. For example, children and senior citizens both benefit from specialty fitness knowledge. Pregnant women do too. But you don’t have to be going through a life stage to have a specialty need.

For example, if you’re training for a competitive event or milestone a personal trainer can help you maximize your workouts for maximum benefit.

Optimal Weight Loss
A personal trainer can provide you with the instruction and guidance you need to achieve your weight loss goals more quickly. Instead of guessing about what to do and how to workout, a trainer can tell you. You skip the mistakes and get right to the success. Additionally, many personal trainers are also certified nutritionists. They know how to fuel your body properly.

Motivation Galore
If you’ve reached a plateau then a personal trainer can help you push beyond it. And if you’re just not feeling it, and everyone goes through those periods, then a personal trainer can help you feel recharged and reinvigorated. Of course the right personal trainer makes all the difference.

How to Find The Right Trainer for Your Needs
Many gyms offer personal trainers on an hourly basis. You can also find specialty trainers in your area simply by doing a quick online search. Ask friends and family members too.

Spend time searching for someone you trust. Make sure they have the proper certification and are CPR certified. Give them a “test run” to make sure you’re compatible. Personal trainers are people too. They have their own ideas, methods, and personalities. Find one that fits your needs for the best results.

Fat Burning Chicken Nuggets?

Here is a very simple recipe that will make any meal plan a lot easier to follow!

It’s super easy to prepare. It will take you about 2-3 minutes to prepare and only requires 15 minutes of baking time.

On again I took it from my good friend Dave Ruel’s Anabolic Cooking Cookbook that is on sale this week for the release of it’s brand new edition:

The Best Bodybuiding and Fitness Cookbook <= at more than half off

But be careful, just like some of his other recipes, these nuggets are highly addictive, and their flavor will put to shame these greasy disgusting McDonald’s ultra fat nugget!

Here’s the recipe!

Makes 6 Servings


- 3 x 6oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup oat bran
- 1/4 cup of wheat germ
- 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1/4 cup ground almonds
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
- Garlic powder (pinch)
- 1/2 cup water or low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 large egg white


1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F. Prepare baking sheet by lining with parchment paper or coating lightly with best-quality olive oil.
2. Cut chicken breasts into nugget-sized pieces, about 1.5 inches square. Set aside.
3. Next, combine all dry ingredients in a large container with a tightly fitting lid. Shake well. This is your coating mixture.
4. Combine water and egg in a medium bowl. Dip each piece in the water/egg-white mixture. Then dip each piece in the coating mixture. Make sure each piece is well coated.
5. Place on the baking sheet. When all of your chicken has been coated and your baking sheet is full, place in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden.

Low Carb Weight Loss With The South Beach Diet

The South Beach Diet (TM) is a method of low carb weight loss developed after Dr Atkins popularized low carbohydrate dieting with his Atkins Diet. Dr Atkins' original plan was criticized for containing too much saturated fat and not enough vegetables. Although Dr Atkins responded to this by producing a revised version of his diet in 'Dr Atkins' New Diet Revolution', this also paved the way for other versions of low carb weight loss plans to spring up. The most popular of these for many years was the South Beach Diet.

South Beach follows the same structure as the Atkins diet with a two-week induction phase followed by an ongoing weight loss phase and finally, maintenance. However, the foods allowed in the different phases are not all the same.

The South Beach diet is based on the glycemic index of foods. This is a measure of how fast the food converts to glucose in our digestive system. Sugar and refined flour convert very fast so they are high on the glycemic index and not allowed on the South Beach low carb weight loss plan. Middle range foods are restricted and may not be allowed in the first two weeks of the plan.

So what can you eat during phase 1 of the South Beach low carb weight loss program? Lean beef, chicken and turkey breast are allowed in unlimited quantities, but fatty meats and skin are not allowed, to reduce the amount of saturated fat.

However, you can have healthy oils including olive oil and mayonnaise. You can also eat non-starchy vegetables, peas and beans, seafood, eggs, low fat cheese and a small amount of nuts. With this range of foods, the South Beach diet is probably the best low carb weight loss plan for vegetarians.

Foods not allowed during induction include regular cheese, sugar, potatoes, rice, pasta, alcohol, fruits and starchy vegetables. Most of these are added back in limited quantities in phase 2.

One of the best things about a low carb weight loss diet is that you can eat as much of the unlimited foods as you want. Unlike calorie controlled diets, you should never feel hungry, even in phase 1 of the program. You get to eat five times a day, with three meals and two snacks.

You may have some cravings for particular foods but these will pass after a few days. You will find it easier if you are able to clear your kitchen of the foods that you should not be eating. If others in your household still want high carb foods and snacks, keep them in a special place where you do not go.

So how much weight can you expect to lose on the South Beach diet? A lot depends on you, but people have had losses of up to 15 pounds in the two weeks of phase 1, followed by steady losses of up to 2 pounds per week on average after that.

As with all diets, your losses in the first phase will depend on what you have been eating before. If you have been following a very unhealthy diet with a lot of sugar, salt and alcohol, your body probably has a lot of retained water that will be lost quickly in the first 7-10 days of the diet, so the scales will show a big loss.

But if you have been following a healthy diet before, your losses will be less, because your body does not have that retained water to lose. If you understand this, you will not be disappointed if your loss is less than other people's. A low carb weight loss plan could still be just as effective for you in the long term.


South Beach Diet is a very popular with people who want to lose weight, but not have to count carbohydrates, fat grams, and every thing else!

How to Stop Overeating

Please read this whole post as you are about to find out about a tool that is proven to help you defeat the battle of the bulge.

But first, if you have a weight problem and do NOT think it is because you are eating too much....

Then you either need to see a doctor or you may have to do a reality check. Unless you have a medical condition, overeating is THE CAUSE of a flabby midsection.  You can
verify this with any health professional.

So what is this tool?

Well, it isn't just another miracle pill or a workout you will never do! This tool actually works with your brain, making it easy to make the right food choices and actually get motivated to exercise.

And yes, stop overeating.

The results are that in an independent test of this specific tool, 92% of the subjects were able reduce their weight the natural way. Here is an example from Ann Carlo of Sag Harbor New York:
''This is fabulous. Thought I forgot all about it yesterday, until I realized that I ate breakfast (which I rarely do), drank a lot of water, had a veggie dinner and DIDN'T EAT ANY SUGAR . . . A MIRACLE! Can't convince me that this system does not operate on some level . . . even though you're not always conscious of it at the time.''
A Proven Way To End Overeating
The tool is clinical hypnosis in the form of a 4-CD set created by a major league psychologist, Dr. Roberta Temes.

These are the same sessions she uses with celebrities and other VIP New York clients that allow them to almost effortlessly make the right eating and exercise choices without the struggle.

Although she has worked with some celebrities we cannot name, she also has also been able to help normal people finally gain control over cravings they never believed they would overcome.

Here is what Syndi Ellison, The Advertising and Finance Manager for Washington State Magazine had to say about the program,
'I am now down 20 pounds and still have not had any problems with stress eating (my lifetime habit is to overeat). I am also walking close to 5,000 steps per day now (a little over 2.5 miles) and into a size 16 from a 20/22 and people are finally beginning to notice. I personally thank you for your program even though I don't understand how it works. I am starting to like who I see in the mirror.''
Beware of unqualified programs.

Dr. Temes is on the Department of Psychiatry at the SUNY Health Science Center Medical School so everything she does is based on research and not ''pop'' psychology.  This is why it is the first hypnosis program we have ever recommended.

Here are some of the amazing things that will happen to you when you go through Dr. Temes seven session program:

*     Cravings will be reduced instantaneously, allowing you to stop binging before you start
*     New neural pathways will be created that empower you to replace unhealthy eating habits with healthy ones
*     Experience effortless motivation without relying on willpower
*     Your desire for sodas will be eliminated and replaced with a craving for WATER!
*     Pounds will melt away as you automatically eat the right foods and right portions, while making exercise a part of your every day routine.

And that's just a tiny fraction of what will happen when you experience this 7 session audio program.

The best part about this program is that it uses hypnosis, so there are no guide books or things you are supposed to do later.  All you do is spend 15 minutes a day listening to the sessions and the changes start to happen.

Most people notice a dramatic change within just 7 days!

Because we have had a great experience with this program and because it is so important to your health that you are able to stop the self sabotage, we have negotiated a great way for you to try the program.

Normally just one appointment with Dr. Temes would be over $300, but with this set you receive seven valuable sessions (over $2,000 in office visit time) for less than $100 that you can use in the privacy of your own home.

And just for you they are going to add $75 of really useful bonuses.

And truly unique is that they give you a full ONE YEAR SUCCESS guarantee, so there really is no risk.

Take Back Control Today  <== Click Here

This is truly a no brainer.

Arthur M.

P.S.  Some important notes:

*This program is ''eating plan'' agnostic - you choose the plan.  Over 20% of the people on the program use it to stay on a plan given to them by a dietician.

*You can use this program in the privacy of your own home.  Seven sessions that you can use over and over again

*This program, especially for you, is just under $100 - this is $250 less than just one session with Dr. Temes in person.

Want to Lose Maximum Fat While Keeping and Even BUILDING Muscle?

I've got 7 things to tell you that will change the way you look at fat loss forever.

1. It IS possible to gain muscle while losing fat, even in advanced trainers.

2. Under the right dietary and training conditions, your body can actually use your own bodyfat to provide energy for building muscle, practically doubling the speed of fat loss.

3. Low-carb diets work. Low-fat diets work. But neither works forever. You can take the best features of both and combine them to actually FEED off each other with NO plateaus EVER.

4. Training with high reps and isolation exercises for fat loss is a waste of time and energy. It will practically guarantee that you lose muscle.

5. Your own natural metabolism is FAR more powerful for burning fat than any fat-loss pills or potions you could ever take IF you know how to stimulate it properly.

6. Precise manipulation of the nutrients in your diet (protein, fat and carbs) can have extraordinary muscle-building and fat-burning hormonal effects on your body.

7. Rebound weight gain when coming off a diet does NOT have to happen. With the right program, you can actually continue to lose fat even after you're done. There is no rebound, just more results!

Is Your Next Diet Coach At Your Supermarket?

There is an increasing awareness around the country about diet and nutrition. Perhaps it is due to television talk shows or maybe it has something to do with the obesity epidemic. Regardless, more and more businesses are stepping up and offering solutions. One example is the supermarket industry.

Many grocery stores are offering health advice and services. Across supermarket chains both big and small, and even in the mom and pop markets, you’ll find services and features to help customers eat healthier and lose weight.

What’s Available?
There are actually a wide variety of services now available at many grocery stores and supermarkets. They range from dieticians to points systems so consumers can make smart food buying decisions.

Many stores now offer consultations with nutritionists and dieticians. For example, King Soopers, part of the Kroger chain, offers dieticians you can consult with via email or over the phone. A dietician is a nutrition specialist. Most dieticians have a degree in nutrition and this is important.

Dieticians aren’t regulated so make sure any dietician that you seek advice from is qualified to give it. On the King Soopers website they provide biographies and education for their dieticians so you can be sure you’re speaking to a qualified professional. If you’re using another service, ask about their education.

Points and Rating Systems
Other supermarkets and grocery store chains have points systems. They assign point so various foods and the information is listed next to the price on the shelf. For example, a box of whole wheat pasta may be an 86 and a box of semolina pasta may be a 40. The higher the number the more nutritional value the food has. It makes it easy for consumers to make good buying decisions.

Data and Information
In many stores you can also find small medical centers. They’re often unsupervised so you’re on your own to use the equipment but it’s often easy to use. You can learn your:
• Blood Pressure
• Heart rate
• Weight
• Body composition (Body Fat Analysis)
• Body mass index (BMI)

That’s all helpful information in the quest to lose weight and get healthy.

Menu Planning and Tips
Many other stores offer information both online and in the store to help you plan and cook healthier meals. You’ll find information on:

* How to stock a healthier pantry
* How to cook with whole grains
* How to take healthier lunches to work
* How to get your kids to eat more vegetables.
* And of course many stores now have newsletters with healthy recipes and meal ideas.

How Can You take Advantage of it?
Visit your local supermarket and investigate what they have to offer. You may be surprised. Also check out their online services. You may find that your supermarket offers everything you need to start a diet and lose weight.

A Fat-Loss Program That Actually Allows You To Build Strength AND Muscle? How Is That Possible?

It's possible with a scientifically-designed program that harnesses and applies the real power of your own natural metabolism.

By exploiting your body's natural reactions, the right program not only maximizes the positive fat-burning and muscle-building effects of Growth Hormone, it also maximizes the anabolic effects of Insulin while minimizing Insulin's possible negative impact on fat burning.

It's a combination that has the potential to transform your body in a remarkably short period of time!

The Pros and Cons of Diet Delivery Services

Does the idea of having someone cook for you sound like a dream come true? What about if that personal chef could also help you lose weight? Well, your dreams may have come true. More and more people are turning to Diet Delivery Services. They’re businesses that deliver cooked meals to your door. Each meal is designed to be low calorie, low fat, and includes all of the nutritional information you need.

Sounds wonderful right? It can be. However, diet delivery services aren’t for everyone. Before you run out and sign up, consider the pros and cons:

Diet Deliver Service Cons
Expensive - The most significant downside of a diet delivery service may be the cost. This is particularly true if you’re a savvy shopper, clip coupons, and know how to save at the grocery store. When you compare your weekly grocery bill to the cost of weekly delivered meals there’s probably going to be a significant cost increase.

Trust – You’ll need to have a certain amount of faith in the diet delivery service. You have to trust that the nutritional information published with the meal is correct.

Portion Size – With some services the portion size can be very small. If you’re hungry when you finish and have to cook something yourself, you’re losing some of the value of the service.

Taste – You may not like the taste of the pre-cooked meals and the meals can get boring if the service doesn’t have a lot of variety. Additionally, the meals are often frozen. If you prefer fresh meals then it may not be for you.
Habits – Once you lose the weight you’re probably going to stop the service. This means you may gain the weight back unless you’ve learned new habits.

Timing – It can be difficult if you work outside of the home to be available when the meals are delivered.

Diet Delivery Service Pros
Convenience – There’s really nothing more convenient than having prepared meals delivered to your door. No grocery shopping, meal planning, or cooking required.

Dieting Ease – If you don’t have to calculate the calorie count for every meal, it’s already done for you, then you’re ahead of the game. You can easily calculate how many calories you’ve consumed each day and stay on track to reach your diet goals.

Variety – If your personal cooking repertoire is limited, a meal delivery service may offer more variety.

Finally, some meal delivery services do deliver freshly made meals with fresh fruits, vegetables, and even local produce. These meals can be delicious and nutritious. With a diet delivery service convenience is the name of the game. Search for services in your area that offer the features you need. It may be the weight loss solution you’ve been looking for.

I'm Going To Tell You 7 Things That Will Change The Way You Look At Fat Loss Forever

There are certain things about fat loss that people have been taught to believe as fact which are, in reality, dead wrong. Even myself, until very recently, believed many of these to be facts that were set in stone.

Not anymore.

As a word of caution, some of these 7 things that I'm going to tell you about may go against everything you've been taught to believe about fat loss. However, sometimes going against convention is exactly what you need to do to get spectacular results!

Let's begin...


MYTH #1: Successfully losing fat always means losing some muscle mass as well.

FACT: It is possible to actually GAIN muscle while losing fat, not just in beginners but even in advanced trainers. All it takes is the right program of training and nutrition.


MYTH #2: Gaining muscle requires additional calories from food, therefore it's impossible to gain muscle under reduced-calorie conditions.

FACT: Under the right dietary and training conditions, your body can actually use your own bodyfat to provide energy for building muscle, practically doubling the speed of fat loss.


MYTH #3: You must choose a consistently-strict diet of either low-carb or low-fat foods to lose fat rapidly.

FACT: Low-carb diets work. Low-fat diets work. But neither works forever. You can take the best features of both and combine them to actually FEED off each other with NO plateaus EVER.


MYTH #4: To lose fat with weight training, you must use high-reps with light weights.

FACT: Training with high reps and isolation exercises for fat loss is a waste of time and energy. It will practically guarantee that you lose muscle.


MYTH #5: You need to take fat-burning pills or supplements to maximize fat loss.

FACT: Your own natural metabolism is FAR more powerful for burning fat than any fat-loss pills or potions you could ever take IF you know how to stimulate it properly.


MYTH #6: Gradually reducing your caloric intake over time is the best way to ensure steady fat loss.

FACT: Consistently reducing your caloric intake is a great way to lose muscle mass. However, precise manipulation of the nutrients in your diet (protein, fat and carbs) can have extraordinary anabolic (muscle-building) and lipolytic (fat-burning) hormonal effects on your body. It's all a matter of what you eat and when you eat it.


MYTH #7: When you come off a fat-loss diet, there will always be some rebound weight gain.

FACT: When the metabolism is properly stimulated and the right combination of nutrients is eaten, rebound weight gain can not only be eliminated, it can be reversed. With the proper training and nutrition plan, you can actually CONTINUE to lose fat even when you go back to normal training and eating.


Sound interesting? I thought so. When I read about a fat-loss program that shattered many of what I previously thought were "facts" and turned them into myths, it was a real eye-opener for me, too!

You see, over my many years of training, I had never once found a fat-loss program that allowed me to even keep, much less GAIN muscle while dieting. I ALWAYS ended up smaller, weaker and depressed from having lost so much of my hard-earned muscle (sound familiar to you?).

Sure, I lost some fat, but I had to go right back to higher-calorie eating in order to regain the muscle that I lost. This left me right back at square one - I had more more muscle again but I still had more fat as well.

That problem is a thing of the past!

The name of the new program that I've discovered is "Metabolic Surge - Rapid Fat Loss." It's named for its ability to push your metabolism far beyond where it's been before and take FULL advantage of the true power of your body's own natural processes.

Read more about this groundbreaking program from the words of the author of the program, Nick Nilsson:


"For years, I've experimented with various training and nutritional theories, techniques and practices all with one very desirable goal in mind: burning maximum fat while keeping maximum muscle."

"The results of my research were far beyond my expectations! I have created a training and nutritional program that not only harnesses and applies the awesome power of your natural metabolism and natural fat-burning and muscle-building hormones, it actually takes these processes and makes them FEED on each other to amplify their effects on your body!"

"The bottom line is, I have created a program that will allow you to actually BUILD muscle while burning large amounts of fat. I've never, on any other program, experienced results anywhere close to what I got from just one, short 36-day cycle of this groundbreaking program."

"Let me put it this way...I started the program weighing 207 pounds. I finished the program 36 days later weighing 207 pounds. Why is this a good thing? Because I LOST 3 INCHES from my waist while doing it!"

"Not only did I burn almost 10 pounds of fat in 36 days, I gained almost 10 pounds of muscle AND even increased my strength significantly. Ever done that on a fat-loss program before? Me neither. It's downright extraordinary for an advanced trainer to accomplish results like these."

"If you're primarily interested in weight loss, however, don't let my results throw you off. I'm certainly not saying you're not going to lose weight when you do this program. Far from it!"

"You will lose a tremendous amount of fat while KEEPING your muscle mass. It won't be water or muscle that you lose but FAT, which is exactly what you want to lose when you're losing weight."

"The numbers on your scale could very well drop like a stone, depending on how much fat you've got to lose and how much muscle mass you carry. For myself, I ended up at the exact same weight and I was ecstatic! This is a system that is guaranteed to reshape your body extremely rapidly."

"This program is also very special in that, when finished, I did NOT experience any rebound weight gain at all as with many other programs, even after losing so much fat so rapidly. To be honest, I actually continued to lose even after I finished the program! My metabolism was just cranking so fast at that point, even when I went back to regular eating, my body still continued to burn fat."

"Please note, however, this program is not for the person who is looking to coast through and get results. The training is demanding. But if you're already training hard and not getting the results you want, this program is EXACTLY what you need. Every ounce of effort that you put in will be rewarded with results."


This is truly one of the most effective training programs you can do if you're looking to burn lots of fat while keeping and even building muscle mass. You know from experience that I'm not one to mess around with ineffective information. I strongly urge you to have a closer look at what this program can do for you.

Click this link right now to learn how you can use the "Metabolic Surge" program to rapidly burn fat and build muscle at the very same time:


Take it from me...the worst thing that can happen to you in your training is absolutely nothing. Why not take a plan that is guaranteed to work and make the next 36 days the most productive of your life!


Yours very truly,

Arthur M.

Metabolic Surge on sale for an incredible 50% off the regular price!  He's only leaving this sale up until Friday, Jan 20th at midnight, though, so be sure to grab your copy before the price goes back up!

Low Carb Dieting The Atkins Way

The Atkins diet (TM) is the best known form of low carb dieting. First published by Dr Robert Atkins in the 1970s, it is neither the newest nor the first low carb dieting plan, but it is very well established. Because of this, you can find a wide range of recipe books based on the plan as well as plenty of free recipes online. There have also been plenty of studies about the Atkins diet and it is better accepted by health professionals than many newer diets.

If you are thinking of following the Atkins diet you will need a copy of 'Dr Atkins' New Diet Revolution'. This is the revised version of his diet which includes more vegetables and is generally felt to be a healthier diet to follow than his first plan, so be sure to buy the book that includes the word 'New' in the title.

Atkins and other low carb dieting plans work by keeping your carbohydrate consumption low enough that you enter 'ketosis' or 'lipolysis'. This is a natural condition of the body designed to deal with times when carbohydrate foods are scarce.

Many body functions require glucose for energy, and normally this is taken from the carbohydrate foods that we consume. But if the body is not getting enough of these, it can switch to using fat for energy. In this state it will use both the fat that we consume and the fat that is stored in the body, so we lose weight.

Unlike some other low carb dieting plans, the Atkins diet does not restrict fat consumption. This is because the switch to lipolysis depends on the body having plenty of fat in the diet as well as using stored fat. Also, fat is a substance that makes us feel full for a long time after eating. In fact, Dr Atkins included a rule that says you must not go more than 6 hours between meals, simply because his first patients found they were not hungry, and were not eating enough.

So what are the rules of the Atkins way of low carb dieting? Well, there are three stages. The first and best known is induction, in which you are restricted to a maximum of 20 grams of carbohydrate.

Some people assume that this means that you can have 20 grams of pasta a day, but that is not the case at all. Almost all foods contain carbohydrate, except for meat, fish and oils. So if you are counting the carbs in your food, you need to do it by using an online diet tracking program such as fitday.com.

For those who do not want to weigh and record everything that they eat, Dr Atkins gives you a list of foods that you can eat freely (e.g. meat, fish, oils) plus foods of which you can eat a certain amount each day (e.g. milk and dairy products, avocado). In addition you get to eat up to 3 cups of vegetables a day, which you take from certain lists. These do not include starchy vegetables like carrots and potatoes, which are not allowed on induction.

If this sounds restrictive, do not worry. You only follow induction for 2 weeks to kick start your weight loss. Then in phase 2 you will gradually increase your carbohydrate intake and at the same time, reintroduce some of the foods that were not allowed during induction. This means more vegetables, including some beans and starchy vegetables in small quantities; more dairy products; nuts, fruits, whole grains and even alcohol.

Phase 3 of the Atkins low carb dieting plan is maintenance for when you have achieved or almost achieved your desired weight loss.

A sure fire way to help you burn unwanted belly fat

The Kettlebell Swing: One Exercise To Rule Them All
By: Chris Lopez, CSCS, RKC, CTT
Author, The TT Kettlebell Revolution

With the recent results of this study...

J Strength Cond Res. 2011 Dec 28.
Lake JP, Lauder MA.

...Which proved that a simple exercise like kettlebell swings can be just as, if not more effective for your body that performing a barbell squat, many exercisers are now becoming more and more curious about kettlebell training and how effective it can be when it comes to losing fat and gaining muscle.

Kettlebell Swings provide a healthy alternative to squatting. Healthier because of the decreased impact they have on your joints AND the almost ZERO compression factor that kettlebell swings have on your spine.

This means that 1) Exercisers can swing a kettlebell safely without the fear of hurting their already sensitive joints and 2) Exercisers can safely use a kettlebell swing as a means to strengthen their glutes, hamstrings and abs without the fear that they may cause injury to themselves.

Kettlebell Swings 101

With Kettlebell Swings being the most popular of all the kettlebell exercises - and the one that seems to have the most benefit - here's how the swing exercise breaks down into 3 easy steps...

1) The HIKE PASS.  Start with the kettlebell on the ground a few inches away from your feet.  You should make sure that your toes are just slightly flared are your weight is evenly distributed through your feet.  Now, bending at your hip and arching your back while pushing your rear end back and slightly bending your knees, reach forward and grab the kettlebell.

You want to imagine that you're an (American) Football Player about to "hike pass" the ball to the quarterback behind you.

As you grab the kettlebell, make sure that your shoulders "stay in their sockets".  That is, make sure that your shoulders stay down and back and that they don't shrug up to where your ears are.

Now, to start the Kettlebell Swing exercise, throw the kettlebell between your knees while maintaining your arched back.

2) The HIP HINGE.  As the kettlebell is "thrown" between your knees, it is very important to maintain an arched back and to stay flexed at the hips.  Hingeing at the hips is what creates momentum that allows you to generate power when you explode forward.

As the kettlebell reaches its furthest distance between your knees, start the upswing by standing up straight, keeping the arch in your back, BUT squeezing your glutes in the process.

You are not trying to lift the kettlebell with your arms, but instead, create "float" in the bell where your arms are just along for the ride.

This float is created by the hingeing and the forceful straightening of the hips.

If you do this right, you'll need no upper body effort whatsoever because your powerful hips with take care of "carrying" the kettlebell through the entire exercise.

3) The ROOT.  The top position or "the finish" of the kettlebell swing requires that you stand-up completely straight with your shoulders relaxed, your butt squeezed and your abs tight.

It's tempting to lean back at the top of the exercise, but keep in mind that this is the wrong approach.

Instead, you want to think of driving your energy through 2 places:

1) Through the floor as you ROOT yourself into the ground.  If you actually get "tuned in" to your swing you can literally feel the ground give you energy back. 

And 2) Direct your energy through the kettlebell out to the horizon.  That is, feel the bell spring forward and imagine launching it towards the horizon in front of you (obviously don't let go of the kettlebell though!).

With the ROOT, you are creating a perfect 90-degree right angle between your arms and the rest of your body.

To continue the swing exercise, you are now just combining Steps 2 and 3 continuously for the required reps.

Remember to forcefully drive your hips back to the Hip Hinge position and make sure that you are keeping the arch in your back and only slightly bending your knees (it's NOT a squat, after all) and then squeezing your glutes and keeping your abs tight and your arms relaxed as you ROOT yourself into the ground.

Mastering the kettlebell swing is a versatile addition to your exercise arsenal and is a sure fire way to help you burn unwanted belly fat and build rock hard muscle.

Can Antibiotics Cause Weight Gain?

Can Antibiotics Cause Weight Gain?

Why Eating The Right Carbs Will Help You To Stay Slim

For more than two decades people have been taught that eating carbs makes you fat. However, a study conducted by University of Colorado in Denver and international agencies has found that carbohydrates can actually help you stay, or get, skinny.

In the study, they found that people who ate carbs were actually skinnier than people who didn’t eat carbs. They studied more than four thousand people. The results were astounding. Now before you get excited and run to the bagel store it’s important to know that there’s a difference between bagel type carbs and the carbs that will help you stay slim.

Resistant Starch
The carbs that help you stay skinny are called resistant starch carbohydrates. Resistant starches are carbohydrates that are a bit more challenging for your body to break down. White flour found in cookies and bagels isn’t difficult at all for your body to break down. However, whole grains and many fruits and vegetables are. For example, beans, bananas, potatoes, whole grain bread and even pasta are good for you because they contain resistant starch.

How Does Resistant Starch Help You Lose Weight?
Resistant Starch helps you lose weight in a number of ways. The first and perhaps most easily noticeable is that it fills you up. When you eat resistant starch you feel full. Think about the difference between eating a muffin and eating a bowl of oatmeal, especially steel cut oats. And you feel full for longer. This is because it takes resistant starches longer to digest and enter your blood stream.

Resistant starches burn slowly. They help optimize your blood sugar levels too. This means a regulated metabolism, fewer cravings, and more energy. They also noticed that resistant carbs helped reduce belly fat and helped people increase muscle mass. Muscle burns fat faster than fat. They also reduce bloat. Resistant starch digests slowly and helps to keep your colon clean. They’re great for digestive health.

All in all, carbohydrates are a great way to lose weight. The key is to make sure you’re eating the right carbs. Look for whole grains, beans, potatoes and products made from whole grains. Whole grain bread, cereal, and even whole grain pasta can help you lose weight. Of course don’t forget about fruits and vegetables too. They’re packed with fiber, carbohydrates and nutrients you need to get healthy and lose weight.

5 Weird Ways To Lose Weight

We are still at the very beginning of 2012 - and NOW is the time to keep losing that extra weight you always wanted to.

The team at Prograde has come up with not 1, not 2 -- but 5 "weird" ways to lose weight. Check it out now.

5 Weird Ways to Lose Weight

Exercise and Weight Loss Lesson of the Week: You Might Gain Weight...Temporarily

Exercise and Weight Loss Lesson of the Week: You Might Gain Weight...Temporarily:

If someone suggested you might actually gain weight when starting an exercise program, what would you do? Scream? Cry? Quit? All of the above?

Unfortunately, temporary weight gain (yes, temporary) is common during the first few weeks of exercise, especially if you're doing strength training. The thing is, there are secret things happening inside your muscles and cells when you start exercising, things that are good, even though they can make you think you're not making progress.

I talk about some of these culprits in my article, I just started exercising...why am I gaining weight? One reason, of course, could be that you're eating too much. We do sometimes compensate for exercise by eating more calories or we follow the rule that exercising means we can eat anything we want and that could lead to weight gain.

However, if you're watching your calories and are pretty sure you're burning more than you're eating, that weight gain isn't fat. It's likely a combination of things - Putting on more muscle faster than you're losing fat and/or water retention, which may be part of the body's healing process as well as a way to get fuel (mostly glycogen, which is stored in the cells along with extra water) more efficiently to the body.

The important point is that there could be a little temporary weight gain as your body responds to your new workout program, but it doesn't mean you're doing something wrong. The key is to assess your situation to make sure you're not eating to much or that you're not losing inches, even if your weight is going up or staying the same, which is a sign of progress. Give your body time to respond to what you're doing and if you don't see a change within a few more weeks or, worse, your weight is going up without explanation, see your doctor to rule out any medical conditions.

Thinking about your own weight loss (or gain) experiences, did you ever gain weight unexpectedly? How did you deal with it? Were you able to keep going and eventually see some changes? Leave a comment and tell us about your experiences.

How To Add Strength Training To Your Fitness Routine

Strength training offers a number of significant benefits. It helps your bones and muscles stay strong. It prevents disease and helps you develop better body mechanics. Muscles look sexy too. However, the most important reason to add strength training to your fitness routine may be because it helps you lose more weight.

Gym or at Home?
The first question to answer is do you want to go to the gym or work out at home? If you’re using weights, it is recommended that you first make sure you’re lifting them properly. Improper form can cause serious damage and injury. You don’t have to use weights to strength train. You can use the weight of your body and objects around the house as well.

Split Routine
The next step is to create a strength training plan. Ideally, you’re adding it to an existing routine. That means you’ll want to break up your strength training into smaller segments. For example one day you can work on your upper body. The next day you can focus on your lower body. You might spend another day targeting your core muscles.

Finding Exercises
Most people already know the basics. You’re familiar with a push up and a sit up. These are strength training exercises that you can begin with at home. However, you’ll probably advance beyond these basics pretty quickly. There are many videos, DVDs, and books you can use to help you create your exercise training plan.

If you’re planning on heading to the gym to use the weights or buying weights for home use, be sure to get a quick education on how to use the machines and proper form. Working out with the proper for will help you get faster and better results. It also helps prevent injury.

Start Small
It’s okay to start small, especially when you’re adding a new fitness program or routine. Consider ending your workout with five minutes of strength training. Experts recommend strength training after your muscles are warmed up. You may want to walk for a few minutes before you train.

Additionally, you’ll probably start with your body weight or with light weights. Experts recommend being able to do eight to ten repetitions and three sets. If you can’t complete the sets then you may be using too much weight. As your strength increases so too will your confidence. You’ll begin to see your body change. It’s a wonderful thing!

Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery is a drastic treatment to take so you need to make sure it’s right for you. You need to know the different options out there when it comes to weight loss surgery too as well as the pros and cons of it. So, let’s take a look at all these things.

1. Lap-Band

The lap band surgery option is known as a restrictive surgery and the band can be adjusted. What happens during this surgery is a doctor will go in and place a silicon ring around the top of the stomach. There will be a small pouch above the ring that gets left for the food to go into. What happens is that because that pouch is so small it fills up quickly making the person feel full quickly. The food works its way, slowly, into the main stomach eventually.

It’s normal that every once in awhile the doctor will have you come in for a procedure where saline is injected into the ring. The purpose for this is to inflate the ring, decreasing how much the pouch can hold even more. If need be, the opposite can be done too.


* It’s adjustable meaning that saline (fluid) can either be removed or injected into the ring.
* The digestive process is not compromised; food is digested "the usual way."

* The procedure is very invasive because it’s done laproscopically.


*If the band/ring twists, more surgery may be required.

* Slow weight loss results.

* You will have to have several follow-up visits with your doctor.

2. Gastric Bypass

The gastric bypass is known as malabsorptive. This is a drastic surgery. The process for this surgery is where a pouch is created at the top of the stomach. This pouch is created by using staples unlike the above surgery where a ring is used. Once the pouch is created the small intestine (a part of it) is actually re-routed so it connects to this pouch. This creates a smaller stomach.

Where does the term bypass come into play? It’s called bypass because that’s exactly what the food is doing. It’s bypassing the rest of the stomach and the original small intestine connection.


* Quick, significant and permanent weight loss results.

* Mild side effects, such as heartburn, tend to be resolved easily.


* Patients are usually required to take several supplements so they don’t go through nutritional deficiency.

*Dumping syndrome – I’m sure you can figure out on your own what dumping refers to!

* Cancer and other serious health problems can go undetected because it’s harder for doctors to see the intestine and stomach via endoscopy.

These are the two main weight loss surgeries. While weight loss surgery can help with weight gain associated with emotional overeating, it doesn’t help resolve the underlying emotional issues that cause you to overeat. If you do opt for weight loss surgery, find a place that does it as a whole person treatment plan. Meaning, they require you to go through extensive counseling and therapy before the surgery (or even after the surgery).

What is Resistant Starch and How Does it Help You Lose Weight?

Carb lovers rejoice. Recent studies have shown that carbohydrates actually help people lose weight and keep it off. Now, before you go grab a guilt free bagel or a muffin it’s important to know that there are specific carbohydrates that help you lose weight. They’re called starch resistant carbs.

How Much is Okay?
Too much of anything isn’t great. However, experts recommend having two servings of starch resistant carbs per meal during at least two meals per day. Getting them into your diet isn’t as difficult as you might think. Replace your starchy carbs with starch resistant carbs in your pantry. Begin making a whole grain side dish for each meal. Add beans and other legumes to your daily diet too.

How Do Starch Resistant Carbs Help You Lose Weight?
