Mike, your articles and site reads a bit like an infomercial, which almost caused me to skip it. Glad I didn’t because it was actually very good and informed advice with a strong scientific foundation. I’m assuming that you have marketing reasons for the way you structure the site, but it has a tendency to turn off people who are suspicious of gimmicks and fads. It’s a bad presentation of excellent information in my opinion because it triggers all kinds of instinctive alarm bells. Still, it’s convinced me to take a look at your books and do some more research on your supplements.
However, it’s worth saying that the best possible training plan probably combines a variety of exercises. In one study of teenagers, it was proved that a combination of weight training and aerobic exercise was the most beneficial – which means that barbell curls alone aren’t the answer.
Dr. Oz tackles your all-time biggest complaint about your body after 40: belly fat. Here are 5 easy steps to conquer that unwanted gut, followed by 3 breakthrough superfoods to also help you whittle it away once and for all.
Whether you’re headed to the beach, prepping for a special occasion or just want to jump-start a healthier lifestyle, you can set the foundation for belly fat loss in a week. And while you likely won’t reach your final weight loss goals in a week — unless you’re only looking to lose a pound or two — you might be able to see minor differences and burn some initial belly fat. However, the results from diet and exercise modifications can keep you motivated to stick to longer term goals, and they’ll set you on a road to success — without the high risk of weight regain associated with fad crash diets.
I know it is difficult to answer “exact science” questions about my body, but how long does it take you to enter a fasted state after a meal? Scenario: my gym doesn’t open until 05:30 and I work from 6am-2pm, so I work out after work. Id rather not fast for 10+ hrs, so assuming moderate size meals…when should you stop eating to train fasted?
I am a female at about 16% body fat and I just ordered your forge but I have a very hard time putting on muscle, I want to get the very last bit of fat on my low abs gone but I don’t want to lose muscle, should I take forge and do fasted cardio? Or just do some hiit and one liss training per week?
Fluids are essential for a healthy body. Especially when it comes to bloating, hydrating really helps. And what better fluid can there be than water? Drink at least 8 glasses of water to get a healthy bloat-free body to substitute those sugary drinks.
A serving of healthy unsaturated fat, such as 3 ounces of fatty fish, an ounce of walnuts or a tablespoon of olive oil provides critical nutrients essential to heart and bone health. A study published in a 2014 issue of Diabetes discovered that overeating saturated fats caused more visceral fat development that eating too much unsaturated fat.
You may face a number of stresses in your 50s: kids in college, aging parents and changes in your career. Chronic stress leads to the secretion of cortisol, a hormone that makes you crave high-fat, high-sugar foods. The cortisol also encourages fat to settle in your middle. Make an effort to adopt stress-reducing strategies, such as yoga and meditation. A small study published in a 2012 issue of Menopause found that women over the age of 50 who added yoga to their weekly routine lost more belly fat, as well as experienced improvements in other health markers, than those who did not.
I followed TLS and went from 27% to 23% body fat (weight training 4x a week and cardio 2-3x a week) in 6 weeks. However, I have been stuck at 22-23% for 6 weeks. I am only 5’3″ and am down to 115 and further dropping my caloric intake feels like I am not getting enough energy for training. I have read that I need to stop cutting and focus on adding more muscle first – so reverse diet up to TDEE. I know your advice for women is to cut down to 20% before starting to bulk. Do you think since I’ve been stuck for 6 weeks, I should start to reverse diet to TDEE and see what happens? Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
Two questions Mike… 1) I was following this diet of 20% deficit (or close to it as I thought) for about 2 months. Did my metabolism suffer as a result? 2) Why do some suggest to breakdown macros into 1-1.5 P g/lb, .5 F g/lb , remaining cals from carbs??

This is excellent for getting a flat stomach fast. You can do this crunch by lying face-up on a stability ball with your back and head pressed onto the ball. Keep your feet together on the floor and hold a 5- to 10 pound dumbbell in your hands against your chest. Now, tighten your abs and crunch up with your shoulders off the ball. Raise your hands up, trying to reach up to the sky. Repeat.
Great article! I am very, very frustrated with my belly fat. I’m a 22-year-old female, and I started heavy lifting a year ago at 5’11” and 160 pounds. I used to be a strict cardio person- and I still do a lot of cardio (a few months ago I ran a half-marathon). However, in the past few weeks I’ve started doing more intense interval workouts in an attempt to lose this fat. With the lifting, the intervals, and a relatively healthy diet, I still have a good amount of pinchable fat on my stomach that makes me forget all the progress I’ve made in my legs and arms from lifting. I am exactly the same weight I was a year ago.

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
Stress. When you’re frazzled — and what modern woman isn’t? — your brain increases the production of certain hunger hormones, making you more likely to binge, especially on high-carb, high-fat comfort foods.
By eating small meals more frequently during the day, not only you make it easier for your stomach to digest, your body keeps working to process that food. This means that it keeps burning calories all day long.
It’s not really necessary to exercise to lose belly fat, but it certainly doesn’t help. What about walking? It’s less impacting than running, better for your knees, and you can put on some good music or walk with a friends and actually have a great time.
As a woman progresses in her later years, aka her menopause years, she loses estrogen. One frustrating consequence of this lost estrogen is that the normal contours of her body change. What she now finds that instead of weight settling on her hips, it goes to straight to her belly.
