Craving something sweet? This fruit — along with colorful radishes, tomatoes, and carrots — contains arabinogalactans, a plant-based fiber and prebiotic that feeds the friendly bacteria that help your metabolism function optimally. The fiber also kills E. coli and klebsiella — two types of bad bacteria associated with carrying excess weight, Kellman says. Chop kiwi into grilled chicken salads or purée into smoothies for a colorful and sweet kick.
Hey. I’m 15 and 210 pounds. I used to play baseball, but I quit. My knees got all bad and since then I’ve gained. Is there anything I can do? Would this apply to me? If not, is there an alternative? I’d prefer not to use the powder, you know, parents and such. Thank you, I’m in real need of a confidence boost.
Set a goal first, like one or two pounds per week. Eat more in the morning than in the afternoon and evening. Drink a glass of water before eating so you feel full faster. Also, try exercising before you eat in the morning.
hey @michael_matthews:disqus Really hoping you could help with my confusion regarding some supps i bought & the doses. I’m at around 135 pounds now, i’m very short actually. And I figured i should take 2grms. of HMB and around 5mg of yohimbine HCL preworkout. Are those doses ok? Also, how long before the workout should i take them? I was thinking i should take them like 45 min before i do fasted HIIT. Is that ok? I also wanted to know your opinion on taking that with a l-carnitine supp as well, will that break the fasted state by any chance?
You have to prevent your body from getting used to any fixed workout routine. Hence, you can switch occasionally. Try running for a change. It is an effective way to keep your heart rate up, burn calories, and lose belly fat.
Increase your daily activity levels. Lifestyle activities are a great way to add more exercise to your day. Being more active throughout the day has been shown to have similar benefits to 150 minutes of planned cardio each week.
Meditation and moments of peace with calm breathing throughout the day are important; as is smiling and occasional belly laughs. Have happy/smile triggers; pulling up to a stop sign, the phone rings, see a pretty girl . . . .
Stack the snacks. Eat small portions of healthy snacks three times a day. In research from Georgia State University, athletes who followed this pattern burned more fat and calories than those who waited for long periods to eat.

Hey Mike! You say fasted state is reached within 2-6 hours after you ate (depending on how much you ate). So how do you know if you’re in a fasted state? I have no idea how to check my insulin levels 🙂

If your weightlifting session lasts about 45 to 60 minutes and HIIT session lasts 25 minutes how do you make 4 to 5 hours of weightlifting and 1.5 to 2 hours of HIIT cardio per week? Don’t you have at least one day break in between?
Measure your waistline using a tape. Do this at the level of your navel. You should breathe normally when you are taking the measurement. If your waist size is more than 34 inches, then you are at a risk of catching chronic heart disease.
This is the one exception to the stick-to-water-only rule: Just as a coffee run makes your morning at work more productive, a pre-exercise cup of java with a splash of skim milk (about 11 calories) or black (just 5 calories) will energize your workout, explains Dr. Klauer. “You’ll burn more calories without realizing you’re pushing yourself harder.”

Beer drinkers always have a pear shape: belly fat & man boobs – especially as they get older. Alcohol also stresses your liver which has to overwork to clear the toxins. This can get in the way of building muscles.
High-protein breakfasts, especially ones that include eggs, have been linked to weight loss, reducing belly fat in the process. Add eggs to salads, stir-frys and sautés, or pair them with 100% whole-grain toast and veggies for a hearty breakfast.
In 2015, over 66 million Americans, or 25 percent of U.S. adults, have reported binge drinking at some point during the year. This is quite alarming, as alcohol has been found to be a significant factor in added abdominal fat.
Researchers at the Biomechanics Lab at San Diego State University took a look at some popular abdominal exercises and ranked them. Results of the study revealed that exercises that require constant abdominal stabilization and body rotation resulted in the most muscle activity in the abdomen.
Spider crunches for that desirable abs. For spider crunches, start in a push-up position. Now, lift your left leg and bring it close to your left arm. Return to the starting position and repeat with right leg.
Scientists have discovered that the number of fat cells you will develop depends entirely on your genes. If your parents or grandparents had excess belly fat, you too might have the same. Yes, it is true that genetics is a determinant of how the fat is distributed.
Sugar is one thing you should greatly reduce, if not omit from your daily platter. There are many sources of hidden sugar, so it’s a good idea to reduce sugar. Use alternatives like honey, palm sugar, and licorice extract.
Keep anything that stresses you away from where you sleep as much as is practically possible. Keep your work space and bedroom separate. Resolve to leave your worries behind as soon as you step into your bedroom.
Reducing carbs is okay for some short periods, but the classic low carb diet doesn’t work, trust me. You may lose fat at the beginning, but it’s proven that people on a low carb diet gained fat again immediately after.
Hey Mike, I’ve been following the protocol you outlined here for a couple of weeks now but am seeing little-to-no results. I’m wondering if it has to do with what I’m eating after my training/my training schedule. It looks like this:
Choose vigorous exercise. When it comes to burning body fat, not every exercise is created equal. For the next 2 weeks, choose high-intensity workouts like running, swimming laps, road cycling, rowing or boot camp over easy to moderate exercise.
hey mike, i have been training since 95′ and am in pretty good shape. weight train 5-6 days and cardio 2-5 days a week. my diet is good and 90% clean. i seem to be in a rut. i have never counted calories and this is probably my downfall.
Hidden or not, visceral fat does a real number on your health because of where it sits in the body. With fat, as with real estate, it’s all about location, and each fat “depot” has a highly specialized function. “We used to think all fat was created equal, that it was just a storage bin for excess calories,” says Elizabeth Ricanati, MD, a consultant to the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic. “But that’s not true.”
