5 Surprising Things That Make You Leaner
Want to be leaner?
Good deal... here's 5 tips that will help you along...
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, my "Every Other Day Diet" System (EODD) actually
encourages you to eat starches and even sweets several days a week
to get rid of excess bodyweight:
Well... how does THAT work?
Simple: Timing is everything.
And it takes 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.
But if you're not going to do EODD, then you'll have to wing it.
And the best way to wing it is to simply cut starches out entirely
for 4-8 weeks. Then slowly add them back a few days per week.
This is no where near as effective (or as fun) as the EODD method,
but it will get you pointed in the right direction.
Can The Sodas
Why diet-sodas? A recent study revealed that people who drank
diet-sodas actually increased bodyfat when compared to those who
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.
Try mixing water with lemon and a bit of Stevia (an herbal
sweetener) and make lemonade. It's wonderful!
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.
For your workouts, I have a great solution. If you pick up EODD
you'll get a limited shot at "7 Minute Body"... Jon Benson's
combination of "7 Minute Muscle" and "The 7 Minute In-Home Workout"
in one book... and for more than half off... but that's a very
limited deal. Gotta have EODD... you'll need them both...
You see, progression -- "forced" progression -- is the best way to
stay hungry. 7 Minute Body forces you to progress without thinking
about it. Progression is built into the System.
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 you full for an hour at least.
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. Jon Benson explains GXP (Modified) in the 7 Minute
Body book, available only if you pick up EODD, and you can get it
at more than half off:
Get Raw At Night
Raw veggies with your last meal and as a snack will really help
your fatburning along. Try starting with red peppers because
they're sweet. You you'll eat virtually every veggie raw at night
without thinking about it. Give this a shot. The fatloss is well
P.S. Jon is still giving away "Radical Fatloss Blueprint" along
with EODD for a few more days. And I'm giving a lucky few the
chance to pick up the Supplement-Kit that comes with Radical
Fatloss for almost 100 bucks off... the video and details are here:
Sorry... EODD Readers Only.... so pick it up today.
