Get Leaner While Others Pack On Holiday Pounds?

Tweet
A few days ago, fat loss author/expert Tom Venuto issued a bold challenge to hundreds of thousands of people... Basically, he "called them out," but in a motivating sort of way, that is. Tom was making an announcement about a new type of fitness transformation challenge contest that will run - get this - through ALL the holidays: Thanksgiving (US), Christmas and New Years. He actually suggested that now is the BEST time to transform your body and that procrastinating until New Year's is a pointless waste of time. If you wanted a better body, why wait, right? He also said that he thinks its downright...

The #1 Difference Between Free and Paid Information. It’s Not Just the Price.

Tweet
Time and time again I see the discussion about free content, free bodybuilding forums, free meal plans, and how you can learn everything you need to know about building muscle or burning fat without paying a dime. In most cases, people are missing the boat on the most important point. When it comes to free, it’s not the price that's crucial. Most people think if you offer someone a free service, they'll take it because the price is zero, right? Well, not exactly. In the real world, there’s another equally important concept: time.   It can be defined by the number of...

“OPERATION MOTIVATION” – too good to miss

Tweet
If you've been with us for very long, you've noticed that I am not the bandwagon type when it comes to recommending products. It's not just because I am picky about what I approve, it's because I've reviewed many programs and systems that just don't hold enough true value. This is one opportunity that I am fully behind and strongly support. This is the solution for anyone, male or female, who has ever fallen off the workout wagon or succumbed to diet relapse, binges or just too much over-indulgence. It's called, "OPERATION MOTIVATION", a simple system that gives...

Hydroxycut Weight Loss Pill Victim of FDA Recall

Tweet
There's mixed feelings on this one from bodybuilders and regular people who've used Hydroxycut without incident.  But here's another slam the ever popular weight loss pill, Hydroxycut.  It gets another recall. U.S. government health officials are warning dieters and body builders to immediately stop using Hydroxycut, a diet supplement made in Canada that has been linked to serious liver damage and at least one death.

Grapefruit Diet

Tweet
At some point, you've probably heard that some type of fruit can help you lose weight.  From bananas, to cherries, apples and oranges, there's always something.  But now my family is bugging me about... The Grapefruit Diet! This is going to be SHORT so here goes. It's a myth that there's some special enzyme in a grapefruit that helps digest or burn fat and can lead to increased weight loss.  While there's no fat burning substance per se, the grapefuit is low in calories (40 in a medium sized fruit) and filling. Low calories... filling... should sound familar. You'll expereince the same...

Lose Belly Fat with Green Tea?

Tweet
There's been many debates on the magic effects of green tea and weight loss but hardly anybody argues the benefits of drinking some green tea.  However, a February 2009 an abstract study published in The Journal of Nutrition, supports the weight loss concept specific to the subcutaneous abdominal fat area (calorie deficit + exercise) and shows that belly fat may be the first to go! I always recall Dr. Chis Mohr saying "that one study doesn't prove anything and an abstract proves even less!" Researchers took 132 "obese" adults.  They all consumed roughly the same amount of calories and participated in 180...

Thank You for the Weight Loss Mind Map

Tweet
I'd like to share an e-mail I received from Kevin Kimmel about the weight loss mind map. "Today whilst on the Sounder Commuter train from Tukwila to Seattle I started to listen to your podcast.  When I saw the title on weight loss I decided to start with that one first, I have so far listened to it three times today.  Three months ago I went to the doctor and found out that I was a diabetic (blood sugar at 267), which is understandable since I weighed in at 442 pounds (5"9') with family history of diabetes.  My doctor said that...

How To Lose 20 Pounds Really, Really Fast

Tweet
After the latest comment wars on the Flat Belly Diet,  I stated that weight loss is irrelevant without a frame of reference.  This generated some feedback from people who wanted to be encouraged about their weight loss no matter what it was (water, fat or muscle).   I stand by that going by the numbers on a scale is the wrong way to go about it.  Maybe this guest article will make the point I was attempting to get across. This article was submitted by Tom Venuto, author of Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle (rss feed). See Burn the Fat...
