Juicing can help you boost your vegetable intake if you’re having trouble getting enough of them into your diet. By removing processed foods, you automatically cut out most of the refined sugars and carbs (grains) from your diet, along with a whole host of other health-harming chemicals and additives. If you opt for organic, you’ll also automatically avoid hazardous pesticides and herbicides, as well as genetically engineered ingredients
The proof that hormones control fat storing and burning is common knowledge in the medical world and is not controversial. Yes there are hormones that control hunger and feeling full but in the end it’s all about being a fat burner or sugar burner.
Do yourself a favor – pick a couple of these tips and then try and do them religiously for the next seven days. Don’t try and implement ALL these belly fat diet tips at once, because you will get overwhelmed. The trick is to pick just a couple so that you doing them only takes a small change in your daily schedule (and that doesn’t require a lot of time to implement).
You don’t have to do casein no but I do like to have some protein an hour or two before bed because it can help with recovery. A minor point but worth noting. Personally I do low-fat cottage cheese or 0% Greek yogurt.

Increase your level of moderately-intense physical activity. Harvard Health Publications, a service of Harvard Medical School, reports you might require as much as 60 minutes a day to reduce belly fat. The 30 minutes, five days per week, guidelines you probably hear so much about apply to promoting general health and cutting your risk of common health problems — weight loss appears to require more.
In other words, fat releases hormones that vary depending on where the fat is located. You may despise the fat that clings to your thighs, but research suggests that the hormones produced there provide a health benefit. “We don’t know all the details,” says Dr. Smith, “but it is clear that the fat in the hips, and particularly in the thighs, protects against some of the health consequences of obesity, such as diabetes, by producing substances that increase insulin sensitivity.” Visceral fat, on the other hand, is known to produce inflammatory agents that can, over time, increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colorectal cancers.
Hello Mike, good work you are doing, keep it up..I am from India. I got a question. I m lifting weights 3 days a week alternatively with other 3 days in between sprinting either on treadmill or on a hill. Losing weight, currently at 71 kg. My height is 5.8. Question is I am not able to lose those last pounds from my waist. I cant really afford supplement that much, but still I eat around 20 egg whites few yolks each day with good complex carbs and peanut butter for fat……If I have to choose between supplements Yohimbine, CLA or L-carnitine, which one I should go with. I can just afford one for now. What would your best bet be with either of these……….Again your abs look great……..Thanx
I love your book. This is my 1 month transformation. I went from 102kg to 94kg. I lost over 20 pounds in such a short period. I feel like i lost quite some muscle and strenght. I think that the problem lays in body fat percentage. I cant accuretly determine my body fat percentage. What do you think was my body percentage in both pictures. Also will i be able to get that muscle gaster because of muscle memory.
We suggest going with the 40 40 20 split as it ensures ample protein while you are in a caloric deficit. You have a bit of leniency though but during a cut you don’t want to go lower than 1g per lb on protein ideally it would be 1.2g per lb. So you can see with the 40 40 20 split that gets you right at that number. Also 6 HIIT sessions a week is quite a bit. Typically we suggest 3-4 sessions of HIIT.
Hi Mike. My goals are twofold and likely counter-intuitive and counterproductive. I’m a 48 yr old Male. I’ve been middle-long distance running for about two years now. As the weekly runs and distance fluctuate (10-15 miles in winter up to 25-40 per week in the summer) I tend to plateau and put on weight (fat) in the winter. This winter I put on about 8 lbs and decided to re-join the gym, with a goal of gaining some muscle for aesthetics and strength but also understanding that it will aid in fat loss. HOWEVER I also have a goal of running my second full Marathon in about 3 months. PArt of that training will include a couple of long slow runs per week. So for the last 10 weeks i’ve been averaging 4-5 gym workouts (kind of a push/pull/lower rotation) while also running 4 times a week (currently 25-30 miles). I’ve lost about 7 lbs already so assuming a 2lb muscle gain and 9 lbs fat loss (if that’s reasonable) I would like to double that up in the next 2-3 months. Also, I haven’t really changed my calorie intake either way. QUESTION, can i lose fat, gain some muscle, all while training for a marathon??? and if so how? Thanks, Russ

“Although there is no magic cure for getting rid of belly fat, eating adequate protein and cutting down on refined high glycemic carbs can help,” says Martha McKittrick, a New York City-based registered dietitian. “Protein helps keep you feeling full longer and the body burns more calories breaking them down compared with carbs and fat. Lastly, protein doesn’t cause insulin spikes like refined (“white” or sugary) carbs do. High levels of insulin have been linked to more belly fat—and this is especially true as we get older,” warns McKittrick. Swap white toast for greens or fruit salad at brunch, pick Greek yogurt over a bagel for breakfast and when you’re dining out and opt for grilled chicken or fish instead of a pasta dish.
You are already doing good by resisting unnecessary food cravings but a mere treating won’t do any harm. Enjoy a cheat meal once a week, be it creamy pasta, chocolate fudge or anything delightful, it will actually help you speed up your metabolism.
Replace your processed grains with whole grains. However, instead of simply buying whole wheat bread, eat quinoa, oatmeal, apples, bananas, flax and wild rice. These fiber sources appear to help digestion, flush the system and help with fat reduction.
Eat the amount of calories appropriate for your energy needs. The USDA dietary guidelines say women 31 to 50 only require about 1,800 to 2,200 calories daily to fulfill their energy needs, depending on activity level. If you carry extra weight around your belly or elsewhere, you will likely need to reduce this amount to facilitate weight loss. Many Internet sites, such as caloriesperhour.com/index_burn.php, offer free calculators to determine your calorie needs based on several factors, including desired weight and activity level.
But no matter which activity you choose, the best cardio to burn fat is strategic. Either do high-intensity interval training (HIIT), very low-intensity cardio like walking, or ideally, a mix of both.
Calculate your waist-to-hip ratio. Your waist-to-hip ratio — or the circumference of your waist divided by the circumference of your hips — can be a good indicator of whether you need to lose belly fat. Here’s how to get it:
