5 Surprising Things That Make You Leaner

by Maria on January 1, 2010

TIP 1 Drop the Starch
Starches, such as potatoes, rice, oats, some vegetables etc. are often considered “healthy”.
However, if you overdo them, they can also pack on stomach body fat.
As you may know from one of my previous posts, Jon Benson’s “Every Other Day Diet” System (EODD) actually encourages you to eat starches and even sweets several days a week to get rid of excess weight.
Well… how does THAT work?
You can get by with eating starches… at least on specific days at specific times. Weekly approach to foods rather than a daily approach is essential. This keeps your metabolism guessing and fat burning is more powerful.
But if you’re not going to do EODD, then you’ll have to cut starches out entirely for 4-8 weeks and then slowly add them back a few days a week. The EODD method is much more effective (and fun), but this will point you in the right direction.
TIP 2 Drop the Sodas
A recent study revealed that people who drank diet-sodas actually increased body fat when compared to those who drank sugar-sodas. The truth is, your body cannot be fooled by chemicals. What you need to be drinking is a quart of pure water per 50 lbs of bodyweight a day.
You can make wonderful lemonade by mixing water with lemon and a bit of Stevia (a herbal sweetener).
TIP 3 Stay Hungry
Jon Benson wants you to stay a bit hungry before you go to bed.
Check with your doctor, and if he/she approves of 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, one egg with half the yolk (toss the other half) will keep you full for at least an hour.
TIP 4 Cardio Clarity
It is Jon Benson’s understanding that 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). That burns off about 400 calories an hour.
TIP 5 Get Raw At Night
Raw vegetables with your last meal and as a snack will really help your fat burning along. Try starting with red peppers because they’re sweet. You you’ll eat virtually every veggie raw at night without thinking about it.

P.S. Jon is still giving away “Radical Fat loss 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 Fat loss Blueprint” for almost 100 bucks off… the video and details are here.

What does work is 9-15 early morning fasting cardio. Jon Benson explains that in the 7 Minute Body books, available only with the EODD.
