5 Weird Tricks to Burn Fat Without Trying

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Matt Clark, co-creator of "The Source Diet". Matt and his partners have helped over 50,000 people improve their health through incredibly effective programs unlike anything else. Through working with so many people face-to-face in a clinic setting, Matt and his partners have discovered some really powerful TRUTHS about burning fat quickly and safely. Here’s what he told me:

The Source Diet

Burning belly fat is not complicated. That is why I have boiled down 5 surprising, yet easy-to-follow principles for you to making burning belly fat a piece of cake!

1. Build more muscle:

For every extra pound of muscle you put on, your body uses extra calories each day. This means that if you add 10 pounds of muscle, you’ll be burning tons of extra calories each day. Before, that extra sandwich or snack might have been making you slowly get fatter each day. Now, you may actually be LOSING weight eating the exact same amount because your body is burning more fat by itself. Note: Adding muscle doesn’t mean you have to add bulk or size, it can simply mean that you are turning fat into muscle. So, hop off that eliptical machine and hit the weights!

2. Use a small calorie deficit:

If you want to lose weight, don’t try to cut your calories in half overnight. Take a small – about 300 calories- amount off your daily intake and eat at that level for about 6-12 weeks. Then, adjust as necessary.

3. Don’t skip meals:

Talk to someone in great shape and you will find that he or she never skips meals. People with plenty of healthy lean (and attractive) muscle (see #1) need to eat consistently to maintain their cellulite and flab-free bodies. You especially should always eat breakfast and always eat a protein-rich snack within an hour of working out.

4. Use exercise rather than dieting to burn belly fat:

Rather than focusing on how much you can drop your calories, increase the number of calories you burn by increasing the intensity of your workouts and frequency. But, make sure in between workouts you are eating healthy, nutrient-dense foods. (i.e. this doesn’t mean you should workout all the time and then pig out on junk food)

5. Make your goal weight loss 1-2 pounds per week:

Rather than swinging for the fences and trying to lose 10 pounds in a week with a crash diet, use moderate weight loss goals for the best long-term results. But, you might actually lose more than 1-2 pounds of FAT per week if you are building muscle at the same time. This will improve your body composition and actually help you “lose inches” even though your weight may not be dropping fast.

I highly recommend you watch Matt’s presentation on losing belly fat in which he reveals this one thing that all other diets ignore (which is why most diets DON’T WORK). Check it out here now: http://scrnch.me/38qhs

15 Simple Rules For Easy Fat Loss

DEADLY Fats vs. Fat-Burning Fats?

Below is an article contributed by Mike Clark, Ph.D., co-creator of "The Source Diet" check it out at  http://scrnch.me/38qhs. I thought this was a very important topic to share with you because this information could save your life (or, at least get your body beach-ready).

The Source Diet

While we all know that there is no magic formula for foods we can take that will help us finally lose that unwanted weight, there are some foods we can try to add to our diets as well as foods we can surely do without. You can try all sorts of diets, gain more weight back, get tired and start craving your old junk foods again, throw your hands up in the air and give up altogether in despair, or you can try to learn and research which foods are not only good for you, but help you maintain your newfound weight.

You will be pleasantly surprised and amazed at the results you can accomplish for your body just by following a few simple basic rules. The first obvious concern to anyone who is interested in going on a diet is fats. What fats am I eating? What fats are bad for me and what fats, if any, are good and beneficial? Yes, there are good and bad fats. You want to avoid trans fats and saturated fats. The amounts of each fat are usually clearly stated on the nutrition facts panel on each food product that you buy at the supermarket. If you are not in the habit of looking over the nutrition facts panel, now is a good time to start. There is no need to obsessively count calories, but it is helpful to start paying attention to your fats.

All trans fats should be avoided entirely, as they are detrimental to your health. You want to avoid taking any bit in at all, as much as you can. Most edible products that you buy already say 0 trans fats on there so it should be fine, however, you want to read the box and pay attention to that to make sure it always says 0 before you buy. Saturated fats are a little bit easier to handle as you can avoid them, but the label does not necessarily need to read 0. It is still highly recommended that you take in as little saturated fats as you can. Once again, the label does not need to read 0 saturated fats, but it should read as close to that as possible. Saturated fats are not as deadly as trans fats, but definitely should be consumed in minimal amounts.

Want to know another secret to burning fat automatically using a strange, but incredibly healthy technique called the 12 Hour Fast?

- 1/4 cup oat bran
- 1/4 cup of wheat germ

Lose Weight While You Sleep in 3 Easy Steps?

For most women, losing weight while you sleep simply sounds too good to be true. It’s like the salesman promising something for nothing. The whole world is trained to think that in order to lose weight, you have to workout a lot and eat restrictive diets. So how can it be possible to lose weight – Without seeming to do anything?

In a groundbreaking study, Dr. Walter Moraes conducted a study with 14 carefully monitored patients. The patients were placed on special beds that allowed Dr. Moraes to measure their body weight down to the gram on a minute by minute basis.

His findings? His patients lost about a quarter of a pound every hour. During waking hours, his patients lost less than one third of that weight while lying in a bed. In other words, you can actually lose quite a lot of weight by utilizing your resting body’s metabolism while sleeping.

Your brain uses 25% of all your body’s calories. While it might makes sense to think that since your body’s resting, you’re not losing weight, the opposite is actually true. Your brain is very active during REM sleep and burns a lot of calories. The rest of your body, though inactive, still uses energy while you sleep.

So how can you increase the amount of calories you burn while you’re sleeping and turn this into a bone fide technique for weight loss? Just follow these three simple steps.

Step #1: Exercise Lightly During the Day

Exercise, even light exercise, helps speed up your body’s metabolism. You don’t need to do 10 laps around the block every day, but just a lap or two could really help boost your metabolism.

In addition to making a difference for your metabolism, light exercise will also help you fall asleep at night.

Step #2: Eat Small Meals More Often

Instead of eating a big meal at breakfast, lunch and dinner, try to eat a small portion of food every 2 hours or so.

When you eat a gigantic portion of food, your body’s metabolism slows to a crawl. You feel sluggish, and for good reason. You’ve essentially overloaded your body’s capacity to take in new food, or new energy.

Instead, when you eat small meals, you train your body to sustain a higher level of metabolism. This will carry over to your resting metabolic rate.

Step #3: Get 8 Hours of Sleep

While the study of losing weight while sleeping is still relatively new, results have shown that people who get a full night’s sleep get much better results than those who aren’t getting enough.

Get more sleep. It feels good and it helps you lose weight.

Losing weight and looking sexy does not need to be a hair pulling difficult task. For even more ways to lose weight and look sexy quickly, take a look at Lauren Eastwood’s “Look 20 Pounds Thinner Instantly.” It’s perhaps the best book in the world on the subject of how to look slim quickly.

Look 20 Pounds Thinner: Overhyped or the Real Deal?

If you’ve heard about “Look 20 Pounds Thinner” but wanted to do a bit of research before making your decision, you’ve come to the right place. “Look 20 Pounds Thinner” is a very unique eBook written by a very unique woman, presenting some very unique information.

The idea behind “Look 20 Pounds Thinner” is that any woman, no matter what your diet or exercise habits look like today, can look thinner instantly. Even if you purchase the eBook in the afternoon, by the time you go out to a party at night, you can already implement a lot of the tips in the book and immediately see a real difference.

The Substance Behind the Excitement

Yes, it’s true: There’s a lot of excitement behind the product. It can be hard to see what’s really substance and what’s just hype. Unlike many other diet products, this book really does live up to its claims.

The book doesn’t claim to make you toned like an athlete overnight. Instead, it promises to make you look 20 pounds thinner very quickly. The book definitely lives up to that promise.

One of the best ways to see this for yourself is to take a before and after picture. Just take a picture of yourself in the mirror from a few different angles before you implement the tips in the book. Then take a few pictures afterwards. The difference will be very noticeable.

The substance of the book focuses on many different areas. You’ll learn how to make your skin look sexy. You’ll learn how to avoid bad hair days and how to use your hair to accentuate your figure. You’ll learn how to wear only clothes that make you look slim. You’ll even learn little-known ways to instantly lose weight, including how to lose up to 20 pounds of water weight in less than a week.

The book is jam packed with tips like this. Implementing these tips could take a little getting used to. You might have to throw out clothes that you’ve had in your closet for a while, or you might have to change some of your shower habits. But the end results will be worth it – And the proof will be in the mirror.

Is This Book Really Different?

It’s no secret that the diet industry is overhyped. Every day there’s a new diet fad or a new magic pill on the market. Is this book really that different?

The answer is “yes,” but not for the reasons you think. Though this book will teach you a variety of techniques to lose weight quickly, at its core it’s not a diet book. It’s a book filled with all the tricks and secrets that “sexy women” know that most other women simply were never taught.

It’s a completely different kind of book. Though there is a lot of excitement around the book, the final verdict is that the book absolutely lives up to the hype – In fact, it may even surpass it.

Ana-Metabolic Adaptation: 3 Easy Tips To Help You Avoid

Do you know what the "Ana-Metabolic Adaptation" phenomenon is?

Well, in layman terms this is basically the ability your body has to adapt to certain foods that are consumed over and over again on a regular basis.

To give you an example:

If you eat pretty much the same type of foods day in and day out, your body will get used to them and it will consequently slow down your metabolism.

Now this SUCKS because a slow metabolism means you'll lose lean muscle and gain bodyfat...

The exact OPPOSITE of what we actually want to do!

So here are 3 easy tips that you can start using right away to help avoid this dreaded "Ana-metabolic Adaptation" from ever occurring in your body...

--------------------------------------

#1: Vary Your Macro-Nutrient Sources!

It is absolutely critical that you frequently rotate your food choices. For example, do not rely on chicken breasts, canned tuna, and protein shakes as your ONLY protein sources.

Make sure to get a wide variety of protein from other food sources such as lean cuts of beef, lamb, pork, wild game, etc. Include all kinds of fish and seafood in your nutrition program. Also make sure to include eggs / egg whites and dairy products to get a wide spectrum of high quality protein sources.

--------------------------------------

#2: Use Spices!

Not only will spices add taste, flavor, and excitement to your meals. But the latest research has revealed that cooking with spices like Cinnamon, Garlic, and Ginger can jack up your metabolism, control your blood sugar, and improve your insulin resistance.

All of these things will help you strip away those excess pounds of stubborn blubber while ensuring that the calories you eat get shuttled towards building lean rock hard muscle mass!

--------------------------------------

#3: Strategically Time Your Nutrient Intake!

It is a proven fact that consuming the right nutrients at the right times, can more then DOUBLE the Anabolic and Metabolic response you get from the foods you eat.

Basically it's not just "What You Eat", but "When You Eat It" that has a HUGE impact on your muscle building & fatloss results!

Now I can't go into a whole lot of detail about all the specific times in this short e-mail, but I will say this... First thing in the morning when you wake up and right after your workouts 
are 2 of the most critical times of the day when you NEED to consume high quality muscle building nutrition.

--------------------------------------

So there are 3 killer tips that you can use to keep your Muscle-Building and Fat-Burning hormones running at their full optimal Anabolic and Metabolic capacity!

And if you'd like to beat this process and get access to the Best tool for it, the new edition of the best-selling cookbook Anabolic Cooking is on sale this week.

5 Weight Loss Tactics That Don't Work

Learning to lose weight is as much about avoiding bad advice as it is about finding good advice. There’s a lot of information in the weight loss industry that simply isn’t true. Following that advice not only won’t deliver results, but can actually harm your progress and your body.

Here are five of the most common weight loss tactics that don’t work. Avoid these tactics at all costs.

#1: Weight Loss Through Calorie Restrictions

Any diet that advocates going much below 2,000 calories a day (less for women) is going to cause your body more harm than good. When you go below about 2,000 calories a day, your body kicks into “starvation mode.”

Your body loses weight, but it does so by burning tissue rather than fat. Fat cells will shrink in size, but not in quantity. The moment you start eating normally again, they’ll expand back to their prior size.

It’s harmful to your body and it doesn’t work. This is what causes the weight “yo-yo” effect.

#2: Processed “Healthy Foods”

Are you eating foods that are labeled as healthy but are made in a factory? Foods like “Vitamin C Enriched Cereals” or Gowalla bars may look very healthy on the surface, yet still contain many unhealthy elements.

For example, enriched cereals have just about no nutritional value. All the nutrition in the cereal is sprayed on during the manufacturing process. Numerous studies have found that these kind of artificial vitamins are very difficult for the body to process.

If you’re going to eat healthy foods, go for organic whole foods rather than processed foods.

#3: Diet Sodas

Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi and the like are marketed as zero calories. Unfortunately, studies show that people who drink diet coke still gain more weight than those who don’t. The theory is that people use the “zero calories” label as an excuse to gorge on other foods.

Whatever the case may be, there is ample evidence that suggests that drinking diet sodas is simply not an effective weight loss tactic in the long run.

#4: Complete Elimination of Fats

Dieters often make fat the enemy in their diets. This is a bad approach.

While getting rid of fats from junk food, fast food and fried foods is certainly a great idea, eliminating all fats is dangerous and unhealthy. Fats from olive oils, avocados and nuts helps give you healthier skin, shinier hair and a better functioning body overall.

#5: Haphazard Dieting

If you’re jumping from diet to diet, chances are you won’t see any real results. The best way to really change your life with dieting is to pick one method and stick to it until you start seeing a difference.

One of the best books on how to lose weight quickly and how to look slim and sexy without difficult dieting is Lauren Eastwood’s “Look 20 Pounds Thinner Instantly” eBook. The book is written for people who want to look sexy and turn heads, without running 2 hours of cardio a day.

But have you thought of making porridge, a big breakfast layer bake, a tasty breakfast burger or some salmon cakes?

What about some roasted muesli, a packed filled omelet, or a treat like strawberries and cream pancakes and banana date bread?

Are your taste buds starting to get excited? Did you think you had all these options to choose from for breakfast?

I bet you didn’t!

You can find all of the above recipes in the Easy Breakfast Bites eCookbook.

Paleo Diet Foods

The Paleo Diet is a lifestyle change that involves cutting out all unnatural foods from our diets. With the Paleo Diet, it’s imperative that a person totally abstains from additives, reduces grains, totally cuts out sugar and dairy, and increasing the amounts of vegetables and organic meats. This change in diet will allow your body to work optimally and in peak form.

Reducing Additives
The first thing a person must do when they decide to undertake the Paleo Diet is to totally remove all preservatives, additives, and other unnatural substances from the foods they eat. In the store, you’ll find many prepackaged foods, and most of these involve high amounts of salts and other preservatives. Your body isn’t designed for this type of unnatural additives in your food, and by totally cutting out these substances, your body will stop wasting its resources on digesting things it’s not designed to process.

Reducing Grains
Grains are another way we’re sabotaging our weight. For much of human history, grains haven’t been a large part of the human diet. The reason for this is varied, but includes the fact that for the most part grains weren’t available to many people until the agricultural age. And, by that time, our bodies had already created a system of disgestive health built around fruits, vegetables, nuts, and other things growing readily. This hunter-gatherer diet is how we’re supposed to eat.

Increasing Organic Meats
Like humans, the animals are being fed grains left and right. And, like humans, grains aren’t a common source of food for animals in the wild. In fact, grains are used in the industry to fatten the animals, much like they work for you too. So, refrain from eating grain-fed animals, and stick with organic meats. These organic meats will provide your necessary protein, while keeping those pesky chemicals and additives out of your body.

Cutting Out Sugar
Sugar is an enemy to your waistline, we all know that.  Sugar cane isn’t meant for human consumption, but because it tastes so good we use it in many food dishes in addition to our beverages. We just don’t need to put sugar into our bodies. There are good sugars, and they can be found in fruits. We still need to limit the total intake of sugar, but these sugars are made for our bodies and are therefore more digestible.

Cutting Out Dairy
Humans are the only species on the planet that drink milk after infancy. In fact, most people are lactose intolerant. Cutting out dairy is an important part of the paleo diet, because our bodies aren’t able to digest it, and that’s the cornerstone of the regimen.

By incorporating these simple strategies into your diet, you’ll have the ability to eat as much as you want, as often as you want. No longer will you be stuck counting calories or working out for hours trying to overcome the brownie you ate during lunch. Instead, you’ll find that you’ll be thinner, stronger, and healthier than you’ve ever been before.

5 Facts You Must Know to Get Rid of Cellulite

Ask any woman on the street what the definition of "cellulite" is and you'll get a strange variety of answers. This is no surprise as there actually is no such thing as cellulite. The word was made up several decades ago, in a European beauty spa, to DESCRIBE the bumpy and dimpled appearance of skin in the lower body trouble zones of the female body.

The beauty spas then started cashing in big-time by marketing "beauty" services and products to get rid of "cellulite". And, like most women who've been challenged by this issue, all of those passive and superficial beauty treatments do not get rid of the bumps and dimples on her buns, legs and thighs.

In order to get the body enhancements and sexy improvements that she desires - there are 5 key facts you must know first. Here they are:

1: You cannot get rid of cellulite by rubbing a moisturizing lotion or skin cream on trouble zones and problem spots.

Despite the fact that there are dozens of supposed 'cellulite reduction creams' on the market - there is no possible way for any one of them, no matter how expensive, to get rid of your cellulite. Cellulite is not a skin problem. Its an underlying structural issue, that can only be corrected by firming the muscles directly beneath your cellulite trouble spots.

2: Risky and expensive 'medi-spa treatments' can only reduce your bank account - not your cellulite problems.

Painful, dangerous and uncomfortable services ranging from endermologie to body-wrapping have been proven totally ineffective when it comes to cellulite reduction. However, advertising and marketing loopholes allow these services to be cleverly marketed to desperate women who are at wits end with the unattractive dimples and bumps on the lower-body problem areas.

3: The lumps, bumps and dimples, known as cellulite are not 'genetic' and you are NOT stuck with them forever if you have them.

These two ridiculous myths are often passed around by 'neighborhood know-it-alls' - and many women actually believe these 2 myths - especially if they haven't found the right way to get rid of the cellulite. What's even more alarming are the number of doctors who also believe in and foster these 2 demoralizing falsehoods.

Yes - it is common to see a mother and daughter, both with the lower-body "orange peel" look, BUT this doesn't mean cellulite is genetic - it simply means both women have not found a way to lift, tone and firm the muscle layers under the bumpy skin.

4: You can get rid of cellulite, regardless of your age - or when you began to notice it.

Since cellulite is a structural issue (muscle) - it can be corrected with simple and unique exercises which target the cellulite areas.

These types of moves can be followed by any woman, regardless of her age or fitness level. And it doesn't matter if the cellulite started in the early teen years - or after pregnancy - or after menopause - it's still a structural issue that results from soft, un-toned muscles underneath the bumpy, dimpled skin.

5: The only proven way to permanently get rid of cellulite is through a series of specifically targeted, cellulite reduction exercises which focus on lifting, shaping and toning the muscle layers so they push outward against the skin - to bring back the smooth and even appearance.

But you wont learn about these in the gym or your local health club. These exercises are not done with typical weights and machine type exercises. Most trainers don't even know about this type of targeted exercise method.

It's important to note: A woman's lower body has over 90 individual muscles. Picture your legs, butt, hips and thighs consisting of over 90 muscles. That's where the magic happens in regards to true cellulite reduction in the trouble spots and problem areas...

Despite what most people have been led to believe, there is a critical difference between a 'general workout program' - and a laser-focused, cellulite reduction routine. The sweetest benefit of this is; you do not need access to a health club or fitness center.

But rather - these are simple, unique moves she can start doing today, right in the privacy of her own home. And if she starts this type of targeted muscle stimulation method today - she will start feeling results within 2 weeks and seeing results within 3 to 4 weeks.

Burning Fat with Finishers

How to Get Shredded with Finishers
Mike Whitfield, CTT
Author, 3-Minute Bodyweight Finishers
http://scrnch.me/bwspecial

We've all been there... PANIC mode. You panic because of one of two things:

1. You need to drop fat fast
2. You have hit a plateau

There's a method you need to implement

IMMEDIATELY, and that's using metabolic resistance training COMBINED with metabolic finishers.

As a matter of fact, I've created

ZERO equipment workouts using these two powerful fat-burning methods.

AND... these two methods combined are even more efficient and powerful than long, boring cardio and even intervals.

But let me warn you, they are challenging.

I throw everything in these programs, including metabolic resistance training supersets AND circuits, metabolic conditioning circuits and of course, metabolic finishers, which will torch even the most stubborn fat.

You'll love the 3-minute BODYWEIGHT finishers that you can tag onto ANY workout to burn more fat in less time and basically smack a plateau in the face, including the gauntlet style.

The Gauntlet  style finishers are the brutal method of choosing one exercise as  the "gauntlet"... like this one:

Single Leg Burpees (5/side)
Goblet Switch Lunge (10/side)
Single Leg Burpees (5/side)
Decline Close-Grip Pushups (15)
Single Leg Burpees (5/side)

And that one is not even in ANY of the manuals. If you listen carefully, you actually HEAR the fat burning... or it's bacon.

Either way, it's an awesome way to end your workout without ANY cardio or intervals.

So, to use this powerful method, you need the "Bodyweight Torch" MRT workout and then follow it with the finisher that is in the manual, OR ...

... you can create your OWN grand finale using any of the 3-minute Bodyweight Metabolic Finishers in the bonus manual.

And don't worry, if you're a fan of interval training, you can attempt any of the Cardio Addiction Finishers (yet another bonus manual). That's the crazy, yet effective method of combining metabolic finishers AND intervals like:

"The Metabolic Ride"
"Bulgarian Cardio"
"Lunge and Lungs 2.0"

That's how you'll let go of the PANIC button. Use a combination of metabolic resistance training, metabolic conditioning circuits and metabolic finishers...

... all with ZERO equipment.

How Do I Really Lose Fat?

By Lee Johnstone, Personal trainer and weight loss expert. Co-creator of ‘The Fittime 12 Week Challenge’

If you are like most people out there, you are probably confused about one important question- “How do I really lose fat? Like most people you have probably tried all the usual methods to lose weight...exercise, diets, pills and shakes, info–mercial fat blaster 2000’s. Sound familiar? This cycle of attempted fat loss is one that will never end. Everybody out there is telling you that they have the quick and easy answer to fat loss.

Lose The Belly Once and For All

Exercise is important, not only for fat loss but also for our health. But what most people don’t realize is that an unstructured exercise routine is a huge waste of time! Why? Because if you are not meeting the specific requirements needed to achieve fat loss from an exercise program, all that hard work if for nothing! Add to this that if the foods you are eating are not the right foods, you may actually be putting on more fat!

Fad diets can be treacherous because they will usually give you noticeable, initial weight loss. But as the weight lost is a combination of fat and muscle, your metabolism actually becomes shocked into storing more fat! You get the urge to ‘binge’ because your body is telling you it isn’t getting the goodness from the food you are eating and it needs important nutrients to survive. This binging then leads to weight gain, more of which is fat than anything else because your metabolism is moving like a slug.

The cycle continues with Weight loss pills as they are designed to speed up your metabolism unnaturally and can be dangerous, especially if used over a long period of time.

You can see how this ‘fat loss loop’ can trap you and leave you feeling as though real weight loss is hopeless.

The truth is that real weight loss is very much achievable. But the first thing you must do is get out of ‘the fat loss loop’. Healthy, real and permanent weight loss depends on 3 key factors and they are: You need to perform brief, specific and well structured exercise. You need to eat the right foods that support your exercise routine and finally you must give yourself the time and willingness to say “This is it! I deserve to lose the fat once and for all!’

These principals are the very principals I live by and I try to instill these principals in those I have the amazing opportunity to help achieve real and permanent fat loss. These people are reaping the life long benefits of a healthy lifestyle…are you?

Lee Johnstone has been a personal trainer for more than 10 years and is a notable fitness and weight loss author and co-founder of The Fittime 12 Week Challenge. Lee created the 12 week challenge as the fastest way to permanent fat loss and to put an end to unreal and unsafe weight loss methods.

If you are wanting to get out of the ‘fat loss loop’ once and for all and you are thinking about taking the Fittime 12 Week Challenge, it may be helpful to read the testimonials of others who were in similar situations to you who have completed the 12 week challenge and have now changed their bodies, their health and their lives.

Paleo Diet 101

Everywhere you look, you’ll find foods loaded with preservatives, fillers, chemicals and other substances. Even though they may taste good, these additives are not only unnatural, but they’re detrimental to our waistline. With each additive and preservative that you put into your body, you’re wreaking havoc on your natural metabolic system, making it difficult for your body to maintain a healthy body weight.

In order to permanently lose weight you must create an environment for your body to thrive. And, in order to do this you must feed your body correctly. It’s not about limiting your caloric intake – in fact, if you’re eating correctly, you won’t have to ever count calories again.

With the Paleo Diet, you give your body the tools it needs to create a healthy body. In addition to ridding the body of preservatives, chemicals, and other additives, the Paleo diet also changes up your daily consumption.

The Food and Drug Administration has, for years, touted that a person needs 60 percent of their diet made up of grains. The Paleo Diet, however, recognizes that throughout history, mankind hasn’t had wide access to grains. In fact, the human diet has been mostly made up of fruits, vegetables, and meats – and not so much grains.  Let’s face it - our stomachs aren’t designed to properly digest grains. Therefore, limit your consumption of grains, and instead get your carbohydrates into your system through vegetables – a common form of nutrients for humans for millennia.

In addition to limiting the grain, when you’re on the Paleo Diet you’ll also limit your dairy intake. As you’re probably aware, most of the world is lactose intolerant in some form. If you think about it, no animal on the planet drinks milk past childhood… so why would we? Our bodies aren’t designed for dairy consumption, so by limiting the dairy intake you’re allowing your body to do the work it was designed to do – without making it work overtime by making it digest food that doesn’t work with your system.

Now that you’ve cut out all the things in your diet that is hard on your body – preservatives, grains, additives, and other chemicals, you’ll be able eat the way your body is designed to. And, by eating what your body is designed to eat, you’ll be able to eat frequently and until you’re totally full. You can eat practically all you want, whenever you want, without worrying about gaining weight or ruining your diet.

As you can see, with the Paleo diet, you’ll be free from the confines of a typical diet. By limiting your intake of chemicals, preservatives, additives, you’ll ensure that you’re only giving your body natural nutrients. In addition, when you limit your intake of grains and dairy, your body will be able to easily digest the foods you put into your body. When you do these things, your body’s metabolism will increase dramatically, allowing you to stop counting calories and begin eating healthy and until you’re full. This is the very best way to lose weight – absolutely all-natural and guilt free.

Am I Losing Weight But Not Losing Fat?

By Lee Johnstone, Personal trainer and weight loss expert. Co-creator of ‘The Fittime 12 Week Challenge’

How many times have you heard someone say “I want to lose 10 kilo’s before summer” or “I need to drop 5 pounds to squeeze into these jeans.” Everyone is fixated with losing weight as the be all and end all when it comes to looking and feeling good. But in reality this is not the case. What they are really saying is “I want to look good for summer” and “I want to look fantastic in these jeans.’ The truth is that it is not the amount of weight that they drop that will allow them to do either of these things. If it was weight alone that they needed to drop they could simply stop drinking water for 3 or 4 days. That would allow them to drop 2-3 kilo’s just like that but it would not help them attain their goal which was to look and feel good. The fat would not have changed; it would still be there…all they would have succeeded in doing is dehydrating themselves which, as we all know is not a healthy thing at all. They would feel miserable and be just as fat as they were before they stopped drinking.

Lose The Belly Once and For All

So if it is not weight that they really want to lose then what is it? The answer is fat! We live in an age where looks and weight seem to matter more than ever before and the marketing companies and the media know this now more than ever before.  We are told that scale weight is more important than anything else, it’s more important than the way we look and even more important than the way we feel.

Why are we told this? Well the answer is simple. So called ‘quick fix’ weight loss solutions like fat loss pills, fad diets and low carb shakes need you to believe that the most important thing for you to care about is the number you see on the scales. They dehydrate, and under nourish you and even cause your body to attack it’s own muscle stores. They do anything to get the end result- quick weight loss, not quick fat loss and to make things worse, stop taking the pills, shakes or the diet and even more fat piles back on. This unhealthy process is what I call the ‘fat loss loop’.

Think about this for a minute. What is it that you really want. To lose weight or to lose fat? The answer is obvious. Losing fat WILL make you look great for summer and fantastic in those jeans!

One thing I try to instill in those that I have helped achieve real and permanent fat loss when they take my 12 week challenge is this: ‘Don’t worry what the scales say. Look in the mirror, it never lies. If you are looking good and feeling great, why worry what the scales say…after all it’s just a number’.

Lee Johnstone has been a personal trainer for more than 10 years and is a notable fitness and weight loss author and co-founder of The Fittime 12 Week Challenge. Lee created the 12 week challenge as the fastest way to permanent fat loss and to put an end to unreal and unsafe weight loss methods.

Can’t Burn the Fat? Maybe your Metabolism has stalled?

By Lee Johnstone, Personal trainer and weight loss expert. Co-creator of ‘The Fittime 12 Week Challenge’

Are you one of those people who claim that they just can’t lose weight no matter how hard they try? Do you say, this is just who I am, I was born to be fat?

Lose The Belly Once and For All

Well, I want to tell you that this is most definitely not the case. Now, I’m not trying to be smug or a smart aleck, but the truth really is that everybody can get into shape and everybody CAN shed their unwanted fat. You see, it is quite possible that somewhere along the way something may have happened that has caused your metabolism to turn into a slug. You may not have recognized it and it certainly isn’t your fault for not recognizing it. Maybe you live a sedentary lifestyle? Maybe you eat too much or too little or maybe not often enough? Maybe you eat the wrong kinds of food? Most likely it is a combination of a few things and if it is a combination of a few things then you can see how hard it is to actually pinpoint what is causing it.

Now I know some of you are probably thinking that I don’t know what I’m talking about, you’re probably thinking “What does he know? I am in the gym 5 days a week, busting my ass to lose the fat, so don’t tell me I live a sedentary lifestyle!” This might well be the case but like I said it is more likely a combination of things that is keeping your metabolism running slow and causing you to store more fat.

I see many people who work very hard perhaps too hard in the gym, struggling for little to no results.

I also see many people who eat well, salads, whole grains, lean meats but again do not lose weight. Why is this?

The answer is very simple. You see, a very select few know how to achieve real and permanent weight loss whether they have learnt it or simply stumbled upon it. It doesn’t make a difference. They may not know they are doing it but they are doing it. You know who these people are. They are the ones that seem to always be in great shape no matter what. The truth is that a short term solution to weight loss and fitness does not exist despite what the diet and supplement companies will tell you.

So how can you become one of the select few? Well, a lot easier than most will tell you.  You need to kick start your metabolism. You need to shock it into fat burning action with short, intense exercise and a healthy eating plan that supports your lifestyle. Your focus needs to be towards permanent change, both in your appearance and your health.  Everybody has the ability to lose fat, get fit and feel great. If you can’t then what you are doing to achieve these things simply isn’t working is it?

Cardio For Fat Loss And Fitness: Is It A Waste Of Time?

By Lee Johnstone, Personal trainer and weight loss expert. Co-creator of ‘The Fittime 12 Week Challenge’

Have you been told that cardio is the be all and end all to melting unwanted fat and weight loss? Well, you are not alone; most people have had the wool pulled over their eyes with this little fat loss lie. Cardio does play its part and is an important component of a real weight loss solution but the part it plays is a lot different than you might think.

Lose The Belly Once and For All

Ever heard someone say or have you ever said something like “I had a burger and fries for lunch, better do some cardio at the gym tonight!”? Most people think that they need to burn the calories of the meal they just ate by burning calories on the treadmill or bike or whatever equipment they use for their cardio sessions. The truth is, that the amount of calories an average person will burn even during an intense cardio session, will do very little to impact the amount of calories they consume every day, add to this the fact that they probably don’t do cardio every day either.

So what am I saying…do more cardio? Certainly not. What I am saying is this: Regular cardio exercise is very important for the health of the heart and lungs and it is also a great way to fire up your metabolism for fat burning but when it comes to burning a significant amount of calories for you to lose fat…it doesn’t deliver! Take this example: Michelle eats a burger and fries for lunch. Her meal has about 1000 calories (4000 kilojoules). Even if Michelle jumps on the exercise bike that evening at the gym and goes harder than she has probably ever gone before, she would need to exercise for at least 1 hour just to burn off that one meal!!! And I mean she would have to go flat out from start to finish!!!

Plus, even if Michelle was super woman and actually managed to burn off the calories she consumed at lunch, what about the other meals she ate during the day? And even if by some super human miracle, she could keep exercising and burn off these calories too, she would only then have burnt off enough calories to be even for the day! In other words, she would have to keep exercising and burn off even more calories if she wanted to lose weight!

So now you can see that if the only thing you are doing to achieve real and permanent fat loss is cardio, you are wasting your time-Big Time!

So, why do cardio then? Well like I said earlier, cardio is great for your health and also it gives your metabolism a real fat burning boost, but there are certain, special methods that I teach my clients that are definitely better for achieving both these effects.

When you think about it, why would you want to keep wasting your time with a workout that probably isn’t working? For real and permanent fat loss, cardio must be part of a total approach that includes certain resistance exercises as well as a healthy eating plan that supports your lifestyle. One that is high in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that support healthy weight loss.

The right combination of these things is the only way to succeed long term in the fight against the fat!

How to lose weight faster with fiber

Fire Up Your Metabolism For Fat Burning

By Lee Johnstone, Personal trainer and weight loss expert. Co-creator of ‘The Fittime 12 Week Challenge’

If you walk into a gym anywhere in the world, you will see the same thing- most of the women doing loads and loads of cardio and the men lifting loads and loads of weights. The reason for this is the stereotype of what the opposite sex finds ‘attractive.’ Typically, what men find attractive is a lean, shapely woman not a muscly one. And for women, it’s usually the opposite. They want a man that is chiseled and defined. So it makes sense that women do cardio to lose fat and men lift weights to build muscle. Seems logical but this is actually the reason why so many people, both men and women will never, ever attain their ideal body. Let me explain why.

Lose The Belly Once and For All

Men shy away from cardio as it wastes time that they should be spending lifting weights. Everyone knows that if you want to build muscle you need to lift weights-and eat. Eat a lot of protein and eat a lot of calories. This is great for building muscle but this is also great for building fat! This causes their metabolism to stall. Many men I help to get the body of their dreams come to me and say “I want chiseled arms or I want six pack abs.” They have trained in the gym for years but don’t know how to go about getting these things. They are already big enough from all their weight lifting. The muscle they want, they have actually had for years, they just never knew it because it was hidden under a layer of fat. Cardio exercise speeds up your metabolism and helps to burn off the excess fat.

Women, on the other hand, have the opposite problem. Both women and men have very different genetic structure. The hormone testosterone is largely responsible for muscle growth and the fact is that females in general, produce far less of this hormone than males do. Muscle needs to burn calories to exist. So the more muscle you have, the more fat forming calories you will burn, even when you are watching tv, you will burn more calories if you have more muscle. So females who have a well structured resistance exercise routine will benefit enormously from adding a little muscle. It will help to burn away the fat and replace it with a toned, shapely look. Exactly what most women want right?

So to achieve the body you want, you need a well rounded approach to fitness. Both men and women need to shock their metabolism into action with brief, specific and well structured exercise-both cardio and resistance but there is one more aspect to it. Possibly the most important aspect to fat loss and total body transformation…and that is the food you eat!  If the foods you are eating are not supporting you lifestyle then sorry to tell you but any amount of time you spend in the gym is a waste of time. Are you getting the results you want? If not maybe your exercise and eating plan are not up to scratch?
