5 Reasons Sleep Trumps Exercise For Fat Loss (& Optimal Health)

A shocking new study from the Annals of Internal Medicine shows a common mistake nearly EVERYONE makes in the bedroom is absolutely killing their metabolism.

Not only does this mistake BLOCK your ability to reduce fat, it also gums up your hormones, drives up hunger, ages you rapidly, saps you of energy and damages your mental functioning.

What’s worse, this mistake can force an otherwise “healthy” person to show the same type of insulin resistance and blood sugar problems as a full-on type 2 diabetic!

Unfortunately, most people don’t even KNOW they are making this mistake…and what’s worse, the solution that fixes it in only 15 minutes a week isn’t widely publicized.  More on that in a bit.

3 Tips to Deplete Carbs & Reverse Damage of Food Binge

One of the most common weight loss questions is, “How to get rid of stubborn lower abdominal fat”…or the lower “pooch belly” syndrome.

Unfortunately, most conventional “diet” plans that claim to achieve this goal utilise foods that “switch off” your fat burning genes, which in turn forces your body to burn sugars and carbs, INSTEAD of fat.

In addition, people who follow low carb diets for quick weight loss simply can’t tell if they are losing water and muscle, or burning fat.

Do you know that for EVERY gram of active carbs you consume on a daily basis, your body will hold nearly 3 grams of water?

If you just deplete carbs, the scale might trick you into thinking that you’re losing a lot of weight — and you are. BUT – it’s water weight, NOT fat.

Sorry. You’re just dropping a bunch of water.

This is why most people who try to cut carbs end up screwing up their metabolism and experiencing rebound weight gain.

But what if you could make most of that water loss to become fat loss instead?

Well, you CAN.

You have to ensure that you deplete carbs with the RIGHT foods, at the RIGHT times, for the RIGHT durations.

And that’s where my friend Shaun Hadsall’s 4 Cycle Fat-Loss provides the perfect solution.

Shaun has created a carb cycling system that breaks down the “science” of burning lower abdomen and belly fat into a simple one week nutrition technique called, The 7 -Day Carb Depletion Diet.

Here are 3 methods Shaun uses to deplete carbs, create a short term LARGE calorie deficit and achieve extreme fat loss WITHOUT damaging your metabolism or suppressing the hormones that burn fat.

1. Do not eat starches or fruits for 3 or 4 consecutive days during the week.

This helps to speed up glycogen depletion and get your metabolism ready for the weekend fun. This amounts to a total of 25-50 impact carbs for the day. Consume protein in every meal to increase satiety and keep your body in an anabolic, high-energy, fat-burning environment.

You program your body to burn a lot more belly fat by using this approach just a few days of the week.

2. Increase your fat intake and double your servings of green cruciferous vegetables on depletion days.

When you reduce carbs, you will require energy from other sources. Both healthy fats and cruciferous vegetables provide you with this needed energy.

Some good sources of healthy fats are fish or krill oil, olive oil, coconut oil, grass fed butter and small amounts of raw nuts. Great choices of cruciferous vegetables include spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus and cabbage.

These provide fiber, vitamins, and minerals necessary to maximize fat loss during carb depletion. It will also help you with appetite control.

In addition, cruciferous vegetables contain a unique compound called DIM that helps to regulate bad estrogen in the body, which will indirectly result in more fat loss.

3. Double your daily water intake on depletion days and the day after a food binge.

While this method isn’t appealing or “sexy”, it works.

Most people are not aware of how effective proper hydration can be for REVERSING the damage of over-eating, beating carb bloat and facilitating other metabolic processes that burn fat.

Remember, if you cheated this past weekend, you’ll be holding almost an extra 3 grams of water for every 1 gram of carb you consumed. So if you had a few slices of pizza, some bread and a bowl of ice cream, you’d have an additional 700-1000 grams of water sitting under your belly skin.

Here are 2 ways on how water can help you look and feel leaner…

1. The more water you consume, the less your body will hold onto. So if you feel like you’re holding water or bloated – drink MORE water.

2. A good rule of thumb is to consume 60 – 70% of your total body weight in ounces of water on your carb deplete days. So if you weigh 150 pounds then you should be aiming for a minimum of 100-120 ounces of water.

Now you can clearly see why a short-term, science based low carb approach can work – big time. But make sure you do NOT abuse the “deplete” day strategies above or they’ll backfire – just like exercise and cheating.

This why Shaun created the 7 Day Carb Depletion Diet. To ensure that you are depleting carbs for quick fat loss the CORRECT way. This is just one of many approaches that is used as a fat burning lifestyle inside his proprietary carb cycling system, The 4 Cycle Solution.

Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter

Are you addicted to peanut butter? Do you find it hard to fit it into your diet since it is high in calories?

Peanuts have a high caloric density due to their high fat content. A serving (2 tablespoons) of regular peanut butter contains about 180-200 calories. Most peanut butter lovers could easily consume more than 2 tablespoons per day because it’s so tasty. Unfortunately, the calories can add up fast and hurt your waistline.

If you are seeking for a low calorie and low fat alternative to regular peanut butter, I suggest giving Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter a try.

Constipation & Bloating: Are You Pooping Wrong?

squatty potty reviews, squat poop

Constipation is one of the causes of abdominal bloating. Not only is bloating a bothersome symptom, it can also affect your quality of life.

I can certainly attest to this as I had suffered from constipation for most of my life. Even regular exercise and increased daily intake of water and fiber (from fruits and vegetables) did not make my bowel movements easier. Elimination was difficult and incomplete, leaving me bloated and uncomfortable. Excessive straining resulted in hemorrhoid.

I’d wake up in the morning with a flat stomach and end the day with a bloated belly. My clothes can fit me on one day but not the next. Having a bloated belly made me look fat!

My misery continued until one day
