3 “Rebel” Fat loss Tricks

by Maria on January 10, 2010

Do you want to dive into life? Be the greatest “you” possible?

Then be a bit of a rebel.

Here’s some “rebel tips” for fat loss I think you’ll enjoy…

REBEL TIP 1: Flip the Food Pyramid Upside-down

The Food Pyramid is an utter joke! The USDA wants you to eat MORE starch than vegetables? More bread than fruits, lean meats, and hormone-producing fats? And nuts are nowhere near the foundation…

Be a rebel and flip the Food Pyramid upside-down, which would look like this:

40% of your cals from healthy fats 30% of your cals from protein 30% of your cals from carbs

REBEL TIP 2 : Cardio Is Not Smart

Cardio (unless you are into endurance sports) is a waste of energy. It increases your carbohydrate cravings. Cardio at slow pace burns mostly SUGAR, not body fat.

Finally, cardio is nowhere near as efficient as resistance training at dissolving body fat… and certainly not even CLOSE to resistance training when it comes to shaping lean muscle.

Now, I  do have a rebel cardio trick… and it takes 9-15 minutes 2-3 times a week to perform. And you get ALL the benefits heart-wise of long-session cardio. I got the tip from fitness guru Jon Benson.

Combine it with some brisk walking and an overall fitness plan and – no more body fat.

Here’s what is cool: Jon put his new in-home version of this resistance-based workout online for a few days at a major discount… Find out more here.

This is completely illustrated with photos too… and you do not need anything but resistance bands and perhaps some cheap dumbbells to do this in-home. Or you can use the gym-based workouts (included with videos.)

Train like this just 3-5 days a week and you can kiss long, boring cardio goodbye.

REBEL TIP 3: Do Not Overwork Your Abs

Most people do endless sets of crunches, leg raises, and sit-ups… all geared toward seeing those toned abs they want.

Guess what? Waste of time.

The truth is: Ab ‘muscles’ are easy to build. It only takes about 3 minutes 2-3 times a week… that’s it.

(Note: Jon included my “3 Minute Abs” in the fitness book I just told you about… it’s only for those who get Every Other Day Diet though…)

The muscles are not what make your stomach flatter… it’s the nutrition plan folks.

You’re just building muscle underneath layers of body fat… not good.

Bottom line: Rely on resistance training and Jon’s special “favourite foods diet plan” to get and stay lean.

So be a rebel.

Trust me: You’ll be a leader in every sense of the word if you do.

Yours in fitness,
