3 Lean Body Fat Loss Tips

By Mike Navin, CSCS
30-minuteworkout.com

Who in the world ISN'T looking for ways to burn body fat? Whether you're just starting out looking to lose some weight and get in shape, or you've been on that quest for the elusive six pack abs for the last five years, these three tips can help you get closer to your goal of a lean body.

30 Minute Workout

1) Stop With The Isolation Exercises

An isolation exercise is where you're only moving one of your joints at a time. Examples of these are bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, leg curls and extensions and calf raises. If your goal is to lose body fat, these exercises are useless. You need to focus on doing exercises that use multiple joints during the movement. Exercises that fall into this category are squats, lunges, pushups, rows, shoulder presses, chinups, and deadlifts. When you do these kinds of exercises, it causes more "damage" to larger sections of your body that are going to need "repair" after you're done with your training for that session. This means that during that repair process, your body is going to have to continue to burn calories to fix the damage. If all you're doing is bicep curl after bicep curl, you're not causing that much damage and it's not going to take that many calories to repair that small of a muscle compared to the sizes of the larger muscles such as your back, chest, shoulders, and upper legs.

2) Stop Obsessing Over Food

There's a lot of information out there about what foods to eat, not eat, how much to eat, and when to eat when it comes to fat loss so give this a try as it's very very simple: Eat like people ate 20,000 years ago. Only eat twice a day and eat as much as you want of lean meats, vegetables (except potatoes), any possible fruit you can find, nuts, and various oils (walnut, olive, and canola) and non-salt spices. Stay away from dairy, beans, wheat products (pasta, bread, rice, etc), NO ADDED SALT OR SUGAR, no bacon or sausage, and obviously, no junk food.

3) Do Interval Training

Interval training is where you warm up for a short period of time, and then you do an all out sprint for a period of time, and then you slow back down and recover for a period of time, and then go to an all out sprint again, followed by a recovery period again. Try doing this: Warm up for 3 minutes, then sprint all out for 30 seconds, then slow down for 90 seconds, and then repeat the sprint for 30 seconds again. Keep doing this until you've done 8-12 of the all out sprints. These are great workouts and it follows the same concept as number one above in that it takes more time to "repair" the damage after the workout thus, you continue to burn calories making those repairs for hours, if not days after you've completed the workout.

Take a read of what others are saying about these workouts:

"I lost fat and inches all over, my waist, hips, thighs, abs; all the areas that I wanted to and I have also tightened & toned my entire body. The classes have also increased my endurance level and turned up my metabolism. Very, very pleased with the results. Fantastic! I was surprised by how QUICKLY I saw the benefits. The classes are difficult and I expected to see results, but the results came very quickly! I would recommend this class to anyone who is serious about turning their body into a lean, mean fat burning machine!"

Hidden Reasons Why You Can’t Lose Weight

Are you finding that you can't lose weight, no matter how much you diet or exercise? For some people, there are legitimate medical conditions like thyroid problems causing this to happen. Others may simply need to make lifestyle changes to exercise more or eat different foods. Here are a few things to look for if you are having trouble losing weight.

The first thing you should do is consult your doctor for a full physical to rule out any obvious medical issues. Thyroid problems are the most common reason for the inability to lose weight, but there are a number of other less frequent conditions that can also cause the problem. A lack of iodine in the diet may be the source of some thyroid problems. Your physician can perform a urine test to check this if it appears to be a problem for you. Some signs of iodine deficiency include physical and mental sluggishness, skin or hair problems, and increased sensitivity to temperature.

If your doctor gives you a clean bill of health and cannot find any medical problem for why you can't lose weight, your lifestyle is the next place to look. Many people fall into habits with their consumption and will eat unhealthy foods without realizing it or even intending to do so. Make sure you are eating enough protein and not too many carbohydrates. Excessive sugars and grains are easily converted to fat in the body and should be restricted to a small portion of your overall diet.

Simply writing down the foods you eat and the time you ate them will help you analyze your daily routine and see if there are any obvious problem areas. For example, you may find that you frequently eat an unhealthy fast food lunch at work because you are busy or it is more convenient. This can easily be fixed by spending some time in the morning preparing your own healthy lunch for the day, but may slip by unnoticed if you are eating healthy dinners and exercising after work.

Your body composition may also be the reason you can't lose weight. Muscle cells burn far more energy while at rest than fat cells. If you do not have much muscle, your body may be able to maintain its current weight even when you do not eat very many calories. This leads to starvation diets, which only make the problem worse as the body compensates for the lack of nourishment. Many people get stuck in this cycle and do not realize that the only way out is to eat more food, not less.

Drop 4% body fat in 23 days (step-by-step what to do)

As we close in on the final hours of Mike's less than 20 bucks Birthday sale for his best selling Fat Burning Kitchen program, I wanted to make sure you knew he is ALSO including the step by step blueprint he used to drop 4% body fat in just 23 days with the package for freee.

This is the LAST thing you need

The last thing you need to do is follow another diet. You need to follow another crazy diet like the US needs another debt crisis.

I mean, you’d think that with the thousands of different diets on the market that we would be seeing less obesity and disease…BUT we’re not!

In fact, the latest Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index (conducted in 2010), revealed that 63.1% of adults in the U.S. were either overweight or obese in 2009 (up from from 62.2% in 2008).

So what gives?

Why are we still fatter and sicker than ever, in spite of all the diets and weight loss gimmicks on the market?

According to our good friend and holistic nutritionist, Yuri Elkaim, the problem resides in the fact that most diets:

* Are not sustainable,

* Assume that everyone can follow one approach,

* Negatively impact your health (some are better than others), and

* Don’t actually educate you about HOW and WHY your body creates disease or stays healthy.

And let’s not forget the uphill battle you are fighting against the food industry, which is hell-bent on keeping you fat and sick.

So if you’re NOT eating as healthy as you’d like…if you’re not as slim as you’d like to be…if you’re worried about your health, then let me ask this…

How could it possibly be your fault?

The odds are stacked so high against you, you’re almost doomed to fail.

And that’s why we continue to see hundreds of new “quick fix” diets emerge every year – to prey on the weak and vulnerable.

That’s why I can’t recommend you jump onto yet another fad diet. Instead, here’s what I recommend you do…

==> Join Super Nutrition Academy

There is nothing like this anywhere.

Actually, that’s not quite true.

You COULD pay upwards of $5,000/year to go back to school and study holistic nutrition…

Or, you COULD spend more than 13 years working with over 50,000 people…

Or, you COULD spend an additional 1,040 hours researching the latest nutrition studies and textbooks for all the answers to your health and diet concerns.

Sure you could do all that. It’s kind of crazy…but you could.

But it probably makes more sense to benefit from Yuri’s expertise (having done all of the above) and learn everything you to need to master your health and your diet by enrolling in…

==> Super Nutrition Academy (LAST DAY for 40% OFF)

You don’t have to have a degree or background in science or nutrition to benefit. Yuri’s made it as simple as possible to understand the complex relationships between food and your health.

After just a few lessons, you’ll be more motivated (and equipped) than ever to eat healthier and finally stay committed to your health goals.

You can do this!

==> Get started NOW

Arthur M.

PS. I’m sure you can find just 1 hour per week to mastering your health, can’t you?

Otherwise, you can look forward to joining the 66% of the population that is settling for being FAT and SICK and who refuse to divert their attention from watching trashy TV to learning more about their health.

You aren’t like them, are you?

3 Diet Lies You Need to Know About…

Over the last 2 months, I have had my mind completely blown when it comes to finally learning the truth about nutrition and how to improve my health…

And without all the confusion and frustration that literally paralyzed me from taking action, beforehand.

For instance, I discovered that 30% of sugar is converted as fat and that post-workout protein intake has NO influence on muscle growth. And this is all backed by plenty science – not just by the latest study.

Taking action on what I’ve learned so far, I’ve been able to reduce my cravings for sugar and dramatically improve my energy levels.

And I guess I forgot to mention that I’m also following a simple 10-minute daily routine that is helping me condition NEW health habits. It’s great.

So What Is This All About?

This all has to do with something I’m very passionate about…

Easy-to-understand and powerful education.

And that’s exactly what I’ve benefited from in the brand new Super Nutrition Academy.

This isn’t another diet that leaves you stranded once you’re done with it. Not by a long shot.

Super Nutrition Academy is all about educating you about the fundamentals of nutrition and health so that you can finally master your diet and health.

It makes the complex relationship between food and your body simple and fun to understand.

And the best part is that each training video/lesson takes up no more than an hour of my time and is very easy to understand, especially if you don’t have a background in science,
nutrition, or health.

I can tell you this…

Super Nutrition Academy is massively different from anything you’ve ever seen with respect to diet and health.

In fact, there’s nothing like it.

I promise you will be hearing about this for years to come, but now it is in the realm of the “early adopters.”

This is because the results are tangible, long-lasting, and mastering your diet and health is actually EASIER to do than what you may have been led to believe. I can attest to that.

=> Learn From The Best

Yuri Elkaim, a world-renowned holistic nutrition and fitness trainer who is endorsed by the Four Seasons Hotels and the University of Toronto, is the “professor” of and mastermind behind Super Nutrition Academy.

With this Academy, Yuri has put together a 12-month “health mastery” program covering all aspects of your diet and health.

As you’ll see, the results are simply outstanding.

Today is the first time he has released his program to the general public, and if you are interested in doing things that work instead of relying on old myths and the next fad diet, I strongly recommend you learn more below:

=> Learn More About Super Nutrition Academy HERE

Once you begin learning, you might get a little angry with the stuff you thought was supposed to work.

For example, did you know:

Dietary cholesterol has little to no impact on heart disease. And in fact, sugar intake is a greater risk factor for heart and arterial disease!

Or how about the fact that not all omega-3 fats are created equal. I learned that less than 1% of omega-3s from plant sources are actually converted into DHA – the ultimate fatty acid that builds our brain and nervous system.

Boy was I wasting my money on flax and hempseed oil. But not anymore.

And that’s scratching the surface.

Yuri has done an incredible job educating us on the most important nutrition topics and while making it easy to “digest” (no pun intended).

SEE FOR YOURSELF HERE

I could go into more detail because I have a preview copy, but that would not be fair to Yuri who has spent over 1,050 hours of research (and that’s above his 5 years of university education and 13 years experience working with more than 50,000 people) compiling and creating this program.

So, if you are into learning the most current information that will help you master your diet and health, I strongly recommend you join his program while it is in pre-release. He is offering all kinds of incentives and discounts that will not be around later.

Arthur M.

Why Cardio Doesn't Burn Fat

By Mike Navin, CSCS
30-minuteworkout.com

It never fails. Everytime you walk into the gym, you see the same people on the treadmill running like hamsters for 60 minutes. If you're wondering whether there's a way to get better results than doing that over and over again AND cut the amount of time that you're doing it by half, then you're in luck.

Interval training is where you warm up for a short period of time, and then you do an all out sprint for a period of time, and then you slow back down and recover for a period of time, and then go to an all out sprint again, followed by a recovery period again. You can use a number of different modalities for this: sprints on a treadmill, on a stationary bike resistance is more important that speed), or my favorite: hill sprints.

When comparing slow steady state cardio to interval training, studies show that overall steady state cardio burns more fat calories as a percentage of total calories during the workout. But, interval training burns more fat calories and total calories during the workout. Let me give you an example.

30 Minute Workout

Let's say you burn 200 calories over 30 minutes of a slow steady state cardio session. Out of that 200 calories, 120 were fat calories burned. So as a percentage, 60 percent of the calories burned came from fat calories. When looking at intervals, you did the same amount of time (30 minutes) but burned 300 calories, but only 50% of that was from fat. But you burned 100 more calories using the intervals and you ended up burning 150 fat calories during that session.

There's even more. When you do intervals, you are forced to use the muscle fibers that are there for strength and power. When these muscle fibers are damaged, it takes a lot more time and energy to repair them. With slow steady state cardio, there's damage to the endurance muscle fibers but, it doesn't take much for the body to repair those.

Due to the amount of energy that is needed to repair the strength and power muscle fibers, your body has to continue for hours (if not days) burning calories to repair those muscle fibers. So even 24 hours after the interval workout, you could still be burning calories, whereas the recovery from slow steady state cardio is pretty much complete only after a couple of hours.

Overall, for fat loss, interval training is the way to go. It might not be easy (but the things you want the most in life tend not to be) but the returns are phenomenal compared to slow steady state cardio.

Bottom line, use interval training to burn that body fat and you'll see better, quicker and more efficient results rather than doing slow steady state cardio.

Take a read of what others are saying about the workouts:

I have been taking kick-boxing with Mike for about a year and was ready to move up to the next level and add a different element to my exercise routine. After experiencing the "trial" camp I knew it wouldn't be easy, especially with an injured shoulder, but you get enough options to work at your own fitness level. I have truly been amazed at how strong my core has become. I was recently on vacation and was able to traverse trails marked strenuous with no difficulty. I have also regained more use of my arm than I thought possible. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone at any age who is looking for a workout that will produce great results.

3 reasons you can’t lose weight and get healthy

It’s a fact…the $40 billion diet and weight loss industry is out to get you!

What are you doing to protect yourself?

How many more fat diets, books, and narrow-minded nutrition experts will it take until someone puts an end to all the MADNESS?

We buy books and magazines that offer conflicting insights into why we overeat and what is and isn’t healthy.

There are publications that promote easy weight loss by eating a lion’s share of protein and acai berry pills that promise a flat stomach without changing your diet.

And to add to the confusion and despair…

There are self-proclaimed experts who tell us that fruit is bad, others say fruit is good. Dietitians recommend white bread for hospital patients, diet coke for diabetics, and pasta as a “good” carb.

Our national “food guide/pyramid” tells us that processed and fortified foods (like soy and tofu) should make up a large portion of our dietary intake, especially if we’re vegetarian.

All of this created what our friend and holistic nutritionist, Yuri Elkaim, has coined the “Information Overload-Confusion-Frustration TRIAD”.

If you’re fed up with not knowing the answers to your health questions and want to finally be in control of your health (and the foods you eat), then now is your chance to do so by enrolling in Yuri’s new Super Nutrition Academy.

==> CLICK HERE for peace of mind and the best health ever. Enroll now for 40% OFF

Not only will you acquire more nutrition knowledge than your doctor, but perhaps more important, Super Nutrition Academy will help you develop 12 powerful health habits that will ensure that you apply the healthiest diet and lifestyle habits into your life.

After all, knowledge is great but APPLIED knowledge is POWER.

You get both.

Arthur M.

PS. If you’ve struggled to lose weight, eat healthy consistently, or to achieve any other health goal in the past this will help. It’s not another diet that gives you “here today, gone tomorrow” results.

This is about mastering your health by truly understanding the fundamentals of nutrition and creating the dietary habits that will lead to lasting change.

What you don’t know is really hurting your body and your health. It’s time to put an end to that along with all the confusion and information overload.

All-Natural Peanut Butter NOT Healthy?

I'm a little late getting this out to you, but fortunately, this should be landing in your inbox, as they say, "right on time".

Here's the deal:

Many of you already know my good friend Mike "The Truth" Geary.

Truth About Six Pack Abs

Well, Mike just turned 36, and to celebrate he's placed his ultimate "belly fat be gone" nutrition resource, The Fat Burning Kitchen, on sale through Friday...

For less than 20 bucks.

The guy has run ONE sale since I've known him, so for whatever reason he must think this 36 is pretty special. Either way, you win:

==> Fat Burning Kitchen Birthday Sale

In it, Mike shares the shocking truth about the "healthy" foods in your home that are without a doubt KEEPING you fat, or at least substantially slowing your progress:

Stuff like:

*Whole Wheat Breads & Crackers
*"All Natural" Peanut Butter
*Canola Oil
*ALL Soy products
*Salmon & Tilapia
*Most store-bought Nuts
*Protein Bars
*Low-fat "packaged" foods
*Low-carb "packaged" foods
*Anything made by "company X" sold in the freezer section

And a LOT more.

He then goes on to teach you how to literally transform your diet from fat-storing to fat-burning in 24 hours by simply swapping out "bad" choices (that you've been deceived into believing are "healthy") for secret "ninja" foods with fat burning power that you didn't even know about.

Like:

*3 kinds of veggies that have been shown to directly combat abdominal/belly fat

*Chocolate (and how it can PREVENT "sweet" cravings)

*A certain type of saturated fat that actually lowers cholesterol and stimulates metabolism

*1 unique spice that controls insulin levels and leads to a leaner mid-section

*An "unusual" burger (yes, it's beef) that BURNS fat

And too many others to even list.

==> Fat Burning Kitchen Birthday Sale

Bottom line: In FBK, Mike teaches you ALL the foods that directly combat abdominal fat while ridding your kitchen of all the garbage "health" foods that are without a doubt sabotaging your fat loss efforts.

If you're serious about educating yourself and arming yourself with as much fat loss nutrition information as humanly possible,I'd definitely add Mike's program to your nutrition library before the sale ends tomorrow.

You WILL learn plenty of new information (not a bunch of crap that you've already heard before).

To your success,

Arthur M.

P.S. Even if you're not interested in any of the other info, I almost forgot to mention that Mike is including a bonus as part of the sale that details every single "nitty gritty" detail about how he managed to go from from 10.2% to 6.9% body fat in just 23 days flat.

I'm talking meal composition, meal timing, macronutrient ratios, and everything else in between. This bonus is full of truly advanced information that is worth at least 5 times the amount of the entire package alone.

==> Everything for less than $20

Go rock it, my friend.

How to Get Faster Results with Ab Workout Finishers

A friend of mine recently surprised me by saying, "I just worked out, but I'm going to come back later today and do my cardio because I have to lose fat faster".

She confided in me that she was wanting to drop some weight, especially in her belly,  before "lake season" got here, because she's a big fan of going out on her friends' boat during the spring and summer.

I then told her that she didn't have to come back to do any cardio. In fact, I said, "You know, you can get faster results with a couple of tweaks and getting here a few minutes sooner ... all without having to do any cardio".

You should have seen the look on her face. She was puzzled.

Then it hit her.  She knew where I was heading.  "You're going to talk about metabolic finishers, aren't you?".  I replied with, "well, duh".  But I also told her I would look at her program and tweak it a little bit to improve her results.

There wasn't any big overhaul needed... just some adjustments.  I would hate for her to have to learn a whole new program.  That can be intimidating.  I also wanted to adjust it to where she can focus on her belly fat, which she was concerned about. She just needed ab workout finishers.

Fix the Warm-up

The first thing I asked her about was the way she warmed up. Unfortunately, she did what most people do, which was hop on the treadmill for 5-10 minutes watching MTV's Cribs.  You're not missing anything.  It's a mansion.  There's a bulldog.  There's a pool.  The countertops are made of gold and the fridge blends in because it has cabinet doors, too.  The end.

I told her to put in bodyweight exercises that will better prepare her body for the workout.  We plugged in Prisoner Squats, Arm Crosses, Pushups, Planks and more.  This will improve her workout performance, and due to that, she will burn more calories.  The warm-up was fixed.

Minor Tweak to Some Exercises

She actually had a pretty good program going for her.  We just made some exercises a little tougher.  We replaced the DB Squat with the DB Split Squat. I like elevating exercises to single limb movements.  They can be an effective change for fat loss.  Another thing we looked at was her Incline DB Chest Press.  She was amazed at the difference it made when doing a 1-Arm DB Incline Chest Press.  She never knew she could feel her abs work when performing a chest exercise.

Now the ab exercises - they were pretty rough...the sit-up machine and DB Side Bends.  I replaced those with Stability Ball Rollouts and Side Planks w/ Leg Raises.  That would be a big boost to her ab exercises, working her core more effectively, all without hurting her back like machines and DB Side Bends can.

The Finish for Better Results

Knowing she was concerned about her belly fat, I told her to knock out the cardio.  She was bummed to find out that excessive use of cardio increases your appetite.  That explained some of the cravings and munchies she was having.  I told her to incorporate some metabolic ab finishers after her strength session, which is a combination of intervals without cardio equipment and effective ab training to shed belly fat and increase your metabolic rate.  I had her try this one:

The Swingin' Core Ab Finisher

Do the following superset 5 times, resting for 30 seconds between supersets

KB/DB Swings (20)
Alligator Crawl (20 seconds)

Heart rate up?  Check.  Working the abs and blasting belly fat? Check. Using incomplete recovery for optimal results?  Check. Elevating metabolism so she'll rock the 2-piece?  Check.

That's the idea behind an ab finisher - to get the calorie-burning benefits of a finisher, along with placing in the latest proven ab exercises to trim the waist.  And needless to say, she was  pleased to find out that she didn't have to perform any "2-a-days" by coming back later in the day and performing cardio.

I told her by using a combination of a good diet, a solid workout program and using these metabolic ab finishers, she would be all set when it comes time to hit the lake on the boat.  By using finishers, she got to save time and spend more time in the waves drinking a cold one (bottled water... what were you thinking?). MW ABFS Group2 2 300x174 Faster Results with Ab Workout Finishers

If you're using metabolic resistance training and you make these few tweaks to your favorite workout program, you will get faster results.  It's actually a pretty easy tweak if you think about it. Simply leave work about 10 minutes earlier or skip hitting that snooze button.  Boom?  Boom.

Tips For You On A Diet For Lowering High Cholesterol And Losing Weight

If you have high cholesterol it is important to get yourself on a diet for lowering cholesterol and losing weight. Many Americans worry about their cholesterol levels, especially those who are over weight. In most cases the first step in resolving your high cholesterol and shedding those extra pounds; is changing your diet. You will discover some pretty convincing evidence, in this article, which will convince you, to improve your health by losing weight and lowering your cholesterol.

A recent study completed by The School of Medicine at Stanford University showed that with both diet and exercise, you can significantly reduce your cholesterol and get rid of the extra weight. The study was done with over 300 men and women with high cholesterol. In order to control the groups the first group was put on a low fat diet. Then the second was put on the same diet with an exercise program.

After a year the group with both diet and exercise had lower cholesterol. The group that didn't incorporate exercise didn't have a loss as significant as the first group.

Eating a low cholesterol diet has shown to lower cholesterol by 8% to 20%. There are a few low cholesterol diets that have proven to work well. These diets include; the Dash Diet, The South Beach Diet, The Ultra Metabolism Diet, and The Weight Watchers Diet. Every one of these diets has online programs or books to guide you through the diet with menu plans and instructions.

As an addition to your low cholesterol diet you should make sure to eat plenty of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is used to fix natural cracks and fractures in your arteries. If you don't get enough Vitamin C your body will substitute it with cholesterol. If you make sure to get enough of the vitamin as part of your low cholesterol diet, your liver will not be forced to produce excess cholesterol.

In another study done, with sixty heart bypass surgery patients, it was shown that eating grapefruit everyday lowers your cholesterol. The study had the patients divided into three groups. One group was given red grapefruit. One group was given white grapefruit.

However the last group was not given any grapefruit and had no diet restrictions. The study showed that the groups that ate grapefruit regularly as part of a low cholesterol diet showed a significant drop in cholesterol. Whereas the group without restrictions, which didn't eat any grapefruit, didn't show any drop in cholesterol.

Additional studies have shown that women that have eaten five to six smaller meals had lower cholesterol and better weight control; than those that ate fewer larger meals. If you eat many small meals with a low cholesterol diet and fewer calories you will be able to lower your cholesterol by about 5% and drop your weight.

There is no question, having high cholesterol and being over weight, is very dangerous to your health. However, if you suffer from being over weight and high cholesterol there are some simple things you can do to lower both your weight and high cholesterol level.

As the above information indicated it doesn't have to be complicated. Simply get yourself on a diet for lowering high cholesterol, combine it with a good exercise program and you are on your way to better health.

The Truth About BMI Body Fat And Health

Though one of the most popular tools used today to determine whether someone is at a healthy weight or not is the BMI, body fat and lean muscle tissue don't figure into the equation. This has led many experts to discount BMI as an archaic measurement that isn't accurate for many people. What is BMI, and why is it a good measure for some, maybe, and completely wrong for others?

BMI, or body mass index, was created in the early 1800s by Adolphe Quetelet. Because of that, it's sometimes called the Quetelet index. It's nothing more than a way of comparing a person's weight to his or her height, and determining if his or her weight falls into a healthy and normal range. The BMI is still used today pretty much as it was when Quetelet invented it.

The formula for figuring BMI (body fat, bone and frame size, muscle and body type aren't included in that) is this: Take your height in meters squared (your height times itself) and divide your weight in kilograms by that number. For example, if I'm 5 feet tall, that's about 1.5 meters. To square that number, take 1.5 times 1.5. The result of that is 2.5. So if I weigh 120 pounds, that's about 54.5 kilograms. Divide 54.5 by 2.5 and I get 21.8 as my BMI. The normal weight range is from 18.5 to 24.9, so 21.8 is classified as a normal weight. Underweight is considered 18.5 and below, while overweight people will calculate a BMI of 25 to 29.9. A BMI of 30 or greater indicates obesity.

BMI, body fat and general health can all be used as signs of how fit a person is. But where general health is pretty self-explanatory and the percentage of body fat clearly shows whether a person gets enough exercise or not, BMI is a bit trickier.

People with a lot of muscle don't show accurate BMI readings. Because muscle weighs so much heaver than fat but takes up less space, a relatively small statured person can carry a lot of muscle weight without looking huge. BMI doesn't take that into account. Football players, professional wrestlers, bodybuilders, and virtually any athlete who has a lot of muscle is going to measure as overweight and even obese according to the BMI. So it's not accurate for them. Is it accurate for everyone else?

The answer to that is yes, and no. It depends on you. The BMI typically doesn't show an accurate result for children. And extremely tall or large-framed people will show overweight or obese classifications more easily because of the extra weight from their bones and muscles. So for very short, tall or muscular people, the BMI appears to not be a good tool.

There's also no distinguishing between men and women in the BMI. Body fat is more natural for women who are supposed to have more than men, so some sort of distinction in the measurement of the sexes would help the BMI's accuracy.

Important Tips For Rapid Weight Loss

Our society is full of images of thin, sexy people – it's no wonder that everyone is always on the hunt for tips for rapid weight loss. People of average weight, even people who are thin by any standards often obsess about their weight, and try every "get think quick" offer that comes their way. Of course, it's never that easy. There's no one path to rapid weight loss – everyone has to find his or her own road to Thinsville.

That's not to say that there isn't some common wisdom that can help almost anyone lose weight! We're not talking about the best exercise equipment to cram into your garage, or the most effective diet pills on the market here. This is about using your most important muscle – your brain – to help you lose weight. The easiest way to lose weight is to understand how weight loss works. Here are a few pointers.

Set Realistic Goals! Any nutritionist, personal trainer, or doctor will tell you the same thing. The biggest mistake a lot of people make when setting out to lose weight is to set their expectations too high. New Year's rolls around, and people rush to the gym saying "I'm going to lose 30 pounds by April!" April 1st rolls around, and having lost just 5 pounds, people give up hope.

Don't set yourself up for disappoint by setting goals you simply can't attain. Start by committing to lose a small amount of weight, and work your way up. Similarly, while dedication is greatest asset, don't work yourself too hard or crash diet. This breeds an "all-or-nothing" mentality – you break your diet for a day and then just say, "What the heck!" and gorge yourself on food. Believe it or not, maintaining a good diet and exercise routine only gets easier over time, so just stick with it.

Do Your Research! This is one of the most important tips for weight loss. There are what seems like billions of weight loss programs available these days. Some of them work, but most of them are shams. Make sure you know what you're getting into before you buy any product, including diet handbooks, exercise machines, or diet pills. While the biggest risk is that might not do anything, some of these products are even unsafe. Check reviews and testimonials to be sure that what you're trying is worth your time and money.

There's something else that you should research if you want to lose weight – and that's how your body works. The body is a very complex machine, and there are a lot of factors that can affect your ability to lose weight. Make sure you understand how to exercise – the different between cardio and strength training, aerobic and anaerobic, and how much of each you should be doing. Also, learn about how foods and vitamins affect your body. With these tips for weight loss, you'll be on the road to a thinner you in no time.

Whole Wheat and Your Body – The Effects

Brown bread vs white bread.  Which one will help you shed the fat?

The answer…

Neither.

In terms of fat loss, neither white nor brown bread will help you shed fat. 

Here’s why: When your body processes whole wheat it causes a rise in blood sugar levels resulting in a higher production of insulin. And when your body produces insulin not only do you store more fat but you also get hungry faster and crave more food.

At the end of the day, they are both starchy carbs that won’t do you a lot of good as far getting rid of the fat around your belly.

Jake explains the process much better in his presentation that you can watch below:

Jake’s presentation is probably the best source of honest fat loss information you will find online.  So if you want a slim toned belly, this is a MUST watch video.

Say Good-Bye To Crunches

By Mike Navin, CSCS
30-minuteworkout.com

Admit it. You look at those abs on that male Adonis or female Goddess on the beach and think "Wow. I really wish I had a set of those." You're not alone. For the most part, people view the elusive six-pack as the gold standard of looking fit.

Want to know one way you're not going to get them? Doing crunches.

First, do you know any movement (well, almost any movement) that you do on a daily basis that looks like a crunch? For the most part, no.

Second, you use your abs in more ways that what you think. Go ahead and squat down. Guess what? You were just using your abs. You'd have to contract your abs when you lower yourself or, you'd fall over and hit your head.

When you do pushups, you have to contract those abs in order to hold your body in a straight line. Stand up from sitting down and again, the abs have to work in order to stabilize your body.

Let's not forget that as much as we want that six-pack for aesthetic reasons, more importantly we should want it to have a healthy midsection and to help support the spine. This is going to go along way in helping prevent other injuries to areas of your upper and lower extremities.

30 Minute Workout

So what are some exercises that you can do for the abs that aren't crunches?

One of the best exercises is called a Plank. Get down into a pushup position but rest yourself on your forearms and your toes instead of your hands and your toes. Keep your body in a straight line. No slouching, and no sticking your butt up in the air. Hold that position for 30-60 seconds.

If you want to make it harder, rest your arms on a stability ball.

A second exercise is a Side Plank. It's the same concept as the Plank, but you're going to turn your body to the side and rest yourself on your forearm (which is facing straight ahead of you) and on the side of your foot, with the other foot resting on top of the foot that is on the ground. Like the Plank, you need to keep your body in a straight line from your foot to your forearm with no slouching.

Lastly, remember, you're not going to see those abs unless you burn that fat that is covering it up. Which means, you need to get your eating in order, do interval training, and follow an overall fat burning workout.

The 30-Minute Workout offers all of that with 90 day workout plans (with no crunches…) that have different versions no matter if you've never trained in your life, have been training a few months, or have been training for 20 years.

Take a read of what others are saying about the workouts:

"I was nervous that I would not be able to do a lot of the exercises due to a particular knee injury (I was wrong!). I could feel myself becoming stronger as the classes continued, being able to hold certain moves longer, being able to push myself further, visible muscle tone in my quads and abs and arms also! Quite pleasantly surprised!! I would recommend it to anyone who is open minded to exercise, someone who wants to do a different type of workout, and is ready for results! I like the fact that Mike shows you different 'levels' of certain exercises you can do, so a lot of different fitness levels can participate."

Recipes For Detox Diet Clean Out Your Body

Detoxification is not just for the movie stars who abuse painkillers anymore. New evidence has shown that just about everyone needs detox – not for drug use, but to clean out the colon, blood system, liver, and other organs that have been building up potentially toxic amounts of unhealthy matter over the years. Lots of people are jumping on the detox diet bandwagon, and for good reason, too.

With all the preservatives, hormones, air pollutants, pesticides, and even fat (think fast food) that gets into our bodies every day, it just makes sense to clean the temple from time to time. You wouldn't go without cleaning the house for very long, and you shouldn't go very long without cleaning out the body, either.

Here are three delicious recipes for detox diets. Give them a try if you want to help cleanse your system and/or lose some weight:

1) Veggie Broth

• A head of fresh broccoli
• A cup of fresh spinach leaves
• A of celery
• A pot full of distilled water

Simply cut up the vegetables into very small pieces. Put them in the pot of water, cover, and bring them to a full boil. Then, reduce the heat to a simmer and let all those nutrients seep out of those vegetables into the water. After about thirty minutes, drain the mixture. Discard the vegetables, and drink the broth. Yummy and a good colon cleanser!

2) Tomato-based Hearty Detox Soup

• A pot of purified water
• A head of green cabbage
• Two medium green bell peppers (or one large and one small)
• An onion
• Three stalks of celery
• Three carrots
• One-third to one-half of a pound of fresh or frozen green beans
• One or two cans of diced tomatoes or tomato sauce

Slice the cabbage into strips. Chop the peppers into bite-size pieces or smaller if you prefer. Cut up the onion, celery, and carrots into pieces of the same size. Prepare the green beans.

Some folks will say to ad the ingredients to the water a little at a time, beginning with the "hardest" vegetables first. I find that unnecessary. Just throw all the vegetables into the pot of water, cover, and bring to a boil. Then, lower the heat and allow the soup to simmer for several hours. Enjoy!
3) Lemon and Citrus "Tea" Detox Recipes

Lemon is quickly becoming a popular detox ingredient, probably because of its high citric acid content, vitamin C density, and abundance of bioflavonoids. Besides for all these benefits, there is something that is generally pleasing about the lemon, don't you think? Lemon furniture polish still b rings back childhood memories of helping my mom dust the living room furniture, my dishwashing detergent is lemon-scented, and lemonade on a hot day – are you kidding? It gets no better than that.

• A glass of grapefruit juice
• The juice of one large lemon
• Two teaspoons of olive oil
• One to two teaspoons of flaxseed oil
• Optional – a clove of crushed garlic
• Optional – split the juices to half a glass of grapefruit and half glass of orange
• A scoop of your favorite protein powder from the nutrition store

Simply combine the above ingredients in your blender and drink. Try to drink it on an empty stomach; perhaps the first thing in the morning, and be prepared to be cleaned out.

Recipes for detox diets are a sure and fast way to help clean your digestive system out as a whole. However, it is important for you to follow the directions carefully and only use for the length of time that is appropriate.

Shocking Fat Loss Workout Review

You won't see any other fitness expert put their reputation on the line like this.

Today, Craig Ballantyne is giving you the eagerly awaited, no-holds barred review of the 2011 roster of Turbulence Training Workouts. He points out all of his mistakes in this completely transparent evaluation of his TT monthly workouts.

Not every workout passed with flying colors, but there were a few big and pleasant surprises from last year's roster - plus a few totally LEGENDARY workouts.

Now you might find this a little shocking. Why would an expert point out his flaws?

Well, because it is Craig's moral responsibility to come through for you, my friends, and even my family members who use these workouts for their health and physical transformations.

He also owes it to himself. Just as Dr. Evil didn't go to Evil School for 6 years to NOT be called Dr., Craig didn't go through 4 years of Kinesiology, 2 years of a Master's Degree in Exercise Physiology, and over a dozen years of training clients to NOT be the very best that he could be at helping YOU get results through fast, fun, effective workouts.

It is his reputation - and pride - on the line with each and every monthly TT workout, and this Report Card puts him in his place.

Last but not least, if the roles were reversed, he'd appreciate companies who he bought from doing the same for us, being honest and open about what their best products were and which ones aren't so hot. It's only right. Over to Craig...

The TT Workout Review - By Craig Ballantyne, CTT

The Grade of each workout is based on customer feedback, my opinion of the program, my expectations for the program, and how many Transformation Contest winners used the workout.

Here's the TT Report Card.

Jan. 2011 - TT 2K11 - Grade A

Each January I put together the latest "Flagship" version of Turbulence Training and give it the TT 2K moniker (simply representing the year it was created). Two of my first, and BEST programs ever are the TT 2K3 and TT 2K4 programs from the main Turbulence Training for Fat Loss manual that almost every TT reader has.

TT 2K11 is not just a compilation of what worked best for TT readers in 2010, but also what has worked for me in my own personal workouts. This first workout of the year is the benchmark Grade A for all that follow.

Feb. 2011 - TT Ballantyne's Day Muscle Massacre - Grade A-

After October 2010's "TT Resistance Evil", my evil twin bru Braigz CallEntyne came back from the dead to bring you the Ballantyne's Day Muscle Massacre workout. This is an advanced workout featuring the 'Monster' circuit where you hit squats, deadlifts, AND bench press. Get ready to be sore. But love it at the SAME time. Again, NOT for beginners...so more accurately, I'd give it an F for beginners and an A+ for advanced.

Bonus March 2011 - Beginner Total Torso Training 2K11 - Grade C

This is the second ultra-beginner Total Torso Training workout I created (following January 2010's TTT workout). It's not bad, but not great. A good place for an obese person to start, but nothing to get excited about. Then again, it was just a bonus workout, so it didn't have all the 'pressure' of pleasing all TT members.

March 2011 - TT Switch - Grade B-

Personally, I think this is a great workout, but my opinion is not been shared by the majority of TT readers. No matter how much I promote this to TT members as a great program, few take me up on the chance to use this workout. Heck, I think that the cover alone deserve an A+. But alas, it earns a tentative B-, to be revisited if I can get a few more TT members to try out this unique program. It's so named because it switches up the traditional TT workout order. Also, despite the low rating it's not going to stop me from creating a TT Switch 2K12. Watch for this new and improved version for all TT members soon.

April 2011 - TT SuperChargerz Workout - Grade A

How can I give a collaboration with John "Roman" Romaniello anything less than a grade A? This was the fourth workout that Roman and I worked on together (along with three Clash of the Titans programs) and all of them have rocked. In fact, Clash of the Titans 1 is one of the most popular TT programs ever. If you're looking to get rid of the final 5, 10, 15 pounds with 4 advanced workouts per week to ignite your fat burning, this is one of your best bets.

May 2011 - TT Metabolic Resistance Training - Grade A+ (Legendary Status)

Each year this is ONE workout that changes the game in Turbulence Training. In 2009 it was TT for Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks. In 2010, it was TT Bodyweight Cardio 3, and in 2011 without a doubt the game-changer was TT Metabolic Resistance Training. It's tough, it's unique, and it's just downright awesome.

I had a lot of fun putting this 4-day per week program together, and TT users have had even more fun doing the workout. It combines two MRT days with two Metabolic Conditioning days for amazing fat burning results. This is easily the third best-selling TT program in history behind the original Turbulence Training for Fat Loss and TT 6-Month Deluxe Bodyweight Manual. Look for more TT MRT programs in 2012 (including the recently released TT Muscle-Metabolic Resistance Training).

June 2011 - TT for Meatheads Lucky #7 - Grade B

You don't know how much it hurts me to give a TT Meatheads program a B grade, but that's what it honestly deserves. Why the B grade? Because looking back, I know this program was rushed. It could have been another Grade A Meathead program if I just had a few weeks more to get TT Meathead Mike ready for his Vegas vacation. But that said, this program will still help you Get Muscle. Get Sexy. And Get Lucky.

July 2011 - TT Buff Guys and Hot Gals - Grade B

Aargh, I just cannot seem to improve the original TT for Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks program (February 2009) as much as I try. This was my 4th attempt, and despite being just as good, if not better, than TT Transformation I through III, this program still doesn't outshine the original from this category.

The TT for Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks remains the most popular program among TT Transformation Contest winners AND is the program that almost all TT members go to when they want to get as lean as possible.

Don't get me wrong, this workout still rocks, but I can't give it a Grade A because the original program set such a high benchmark. In any other category it would be at least an A-, if not  a regular Grade A program, but not when compared to TT BDHC

August 2011 - TT for Abs 2K11 - Grade C (Biggest Letdown)

My biggest disappointment of the year. Back in September 2007 I created a legendary program called, TT for Abs. I remember an ex-girlfriend yelling at me for the soreness inflicted upon her abs by that program - but snuggles, as my friend Roman would say, for the changes it gave to her body.

I was hoping for the same results with this program, but alas, no snuggles. Feedback has been sparse from TT Members and no TT Transformation Contest winners have used this program to claim their $1000 grand prize. Despite what I thought were some really cool unique ab exercises, it looks like TT members do not agree with me, and it's back to the old drawring board.

If you disagree with other TT members and agree with me instead, please let me know and maybe this program will get upgraded to a B or B+.

September 2011 - TT Super 6's - Grade A (Surprise of the Year)

Your feedback to this workout made my year. I was shocked at how many TT readers were overjoyed to finally have a 6-day per week program featuring six short workouts. If you only have 20-30 minutes each day to workout, this program is for you.  Looking forward to bringing you TT Super 6's 2K12 this year.

October 2011 - TT Metabolic Finishers - Grade A-

The only factor that brings this program down is the post-TT MRT hangover. That workout was an extremely tough act to follow in the MRT category, but these workouts will kick your butt and leave your muscles burning for hours afterward...all in a good way. If you love workout finishers and metabolic resistance training, then this workout might even register an A+ on your personal scale. Please let me know what you think of it.

November 2011 - TT Bodyweight Cardio 400 - Grade B+

Another program with a hard act to follow, the TT BWC 400 falls under the shadow of the TT BWC 3 from June 2010. While it still contains a new version of my trademarked 5 rounds of 5 circuit, plus a variety of other bodyweight only (no-equipment) workouts, it still wasn't enough to earn A+ status. But if you want to replace boring cardio AND even interval training with bodyweight-only exercises, then this is your solution.

December 2011 - TT 15-Minute MRT - Grade B+

The only reason this doesn't get a Grade A is because all of these sessions are only 15 minutes long. I suppose that could be a very good reasons for giving it an A+ grade, but I know many TT members want slightly longer workouts. And yes, you won't get super-maximum results in just 15 minutes. BUT...this is a perfect A+ for those who have super-crazy-busy schedules, or if you just happen to have an extremely busy month coming up.

So there you go.

Each year I write one program that becomes LEGEND. This year it was the TT Metabolic Resistance Training program.

Each year has one workout that is an incredibly pleasant surprise. In 2011 it was TT Super 6's (you just LOVED the six short workouts per week).

And each year one program fails to meet my expectations. Unfortunately, this year it was the TT for Abs 2K11 workout.

I promise I will do better in 2012. In fact, so far this year, in 2012, I'm five-for-five with ALL of the workouts I've created so far earning at least an A, and a couple of A+'s. Look for more great TT programs coming very, very soon.
