Hi Folks,
Wanted to share some easy Fat loss tips that don’t require a lot of time or energy

for us Uber busy folks.

Want to be leaner?

Good deal… here’s some tips that have helped me and hope they will help you along too …

Ditch The Starch

Starches, such as rice, potatoes, some veggies, oats, etc. are
often considered “health foods.”

While they can be healthy, they can also pack on stomach bodyfat
like crazy if you overdo them.

As you may know, I’ve actually encouraged

you to eat starches and even sweets several days a week
to get rid of excess weight, through using them immediately after a

workout. Since that is the most ideal time your body will use them

for your muscles instead of fat storage.

 

Simple:  Timing is everything.

And we take a “weekly” approach to foods rather than a daily
approach. This keeps your metabolism guessing. If your body cannot
figure out what you’re up to, fatburning is that much more
powerful. And you can get by with eating starches… at least a
specific times on specific days.

This is will get you pointed in the right direction.

Can The Sodas

This one is really hard for me. I’ve been hooked on diet-soda on
and off for years. When I go to get into top shape (like I am now)
I have to get rid of the diet-sodas… yes, DIET-sodas. Need I say
“real” sodas too? They are loaded with sugar.

Why diet-sodas? A recent study revealed that people who drank
diet-sodas actually increased bodyfat when compared to those who
drank sugar-sodas. What the… ??

Yep. Your body cannot be fooled by aspartame and chemicals. Sorry,
but that’s the truth.

Here’s a personal story:  When I cut out the diet-sodas my bodyfat
drops like a rock in a pond of clear water.

And that’s what you need to be drinking:  A quart of pure water per
50 lbs of bodyweight a day.

I mix it with lemon and a bit of Stevia (an herbal sweetener) and
make lemonade. It’s wonderful!

Stay Hungry

Arnold’s first movie was “Stay Hungry” (well, after “Pumping Iron”
that is). You cannot rest on your butt and stay hungry. You cannot
think you’ve “arrived” and stay hungry.

It takes a special person to be hungry… and an even greater one
to stay that way.

I want you to stay hungry in two ways:  In how you workout and
literally… stay a bit hungry before you go to bed. Not
“starving”… just a bit hungry.

You see, progression — “forced” progression — is the best way to
stay hungry.
One way with resistance training is to use a  heavy resistance that you can do only

eight reps , then next set do twelve reps with a slightly lighter weight , then next back to the eight

After for example three cycles of this those eight reps will feel more like 3 to 5.

IMPORTANT: Form !!  NEVER be sloppy to get results. It only will lead to injury.

As far as staying hungry at night? Check with your doctor and if
he/she okays it take 500mg of potassium and 1000mg of
magnesium/calcium a few hours prior to bed. This helps with the
hunger pangs. Also, keep hard-boiled eggs in the fridge. If you get
really hungry, eat one with half the yolk (toss the other half.) It
keeps me full for an hour at least.

Cardio Clarity

Hours and hours of cardio a day is not the answer. However, you can
do “light” cardio (i.e. brisk walking, or riding the bike at 60% of
your max) just to burn off calories. That’s okay… and personally
I don’t find it that boring if I’m watching a TV show. It does not
interfere with my main fatloss exercise (weight training… YES!)
and it burns off about 400 calories an hour.

What does work is early morning fasting cardio… but you only need
9-15 minutes. Gradually start with 30 seconds intense, 3o seconds rest, while

building to more intense cycles and very gradually reducing the low intensity cycles.

Get Raw At Night

Raw veggies with your last meal and as a snack will really help
your fatburning along. I started with red peppers because they’re
sweet. Now I eat virtually every veggie raw at night without
thinking about it. Give this a shot. The fatloss is well worth it.

Hope these simple tips help you on your journey to Boundryless Health and Happiness too !!
