5 Reasons You Aren’t Losing Belly Fat
When you set out to live a healthier, better life, part of your goal was to shed that belly fat that has plagued you all these years. However, try as you may, it sticks around like a bad habit. While extra belly fat is a deterrent to your self-confidence, it comes with an array of serious health dangers as well. From increased risk for cancer to heart disease to diabetes, unwanted belly bulge puts your life at risk every day.
If you’ve been struggling to kiss it goodbye, it may be for one of these five reasons.

Reason #1: Your Mediocre Workout

As long as you can remember, medical experts have recommended you get at least 30 minutes of exercise a few days a week. And for good reason. Much of the industrialized world has cut movement out of their lives in many ways, making it necessary to hit the gym in order to stay fit. However, if you think 30 minutes of light jogging on the treadmill three days a week is going to get rid of that belly fat, think again. To burn the flab, you’ll need to add strength training to your routine. Doing this will add muscle to your frame, which will help burn more pounds of fat. It will also put your muscles where they belong, which helps your belly look flatter.

Reason #2: Your Fork

Getting rid of belly fat can’t only be done in the gym. It requires a lifestyle change that includes being very cautious of what you put in your mouth. That means cutting out the processed foods, saturated fats, and whatever else is likely to cause fat to cling to your midsection. In case you’re curious, that includes too much healthy food also. Remember: everything has calories, and if your body doesn’t use it, it’s got to go somewhere, and your waistline is a likely candidate. But your fork isn’t the only thing that matters. Not drinking enough water is a sure recipe for belly fat. After all, there’s a reason a pudgy front is called a beer belly.

Reason #3: Your Stress Levels

When you feel stressed, it’s because something in your life is going on and you simply can’t let go of it until it’s resolved. Unfortunately, when you don’t let go of stress, fat doesn’t let go of you. It’s due to the chemical cortisol, which is released by your body when you’re facing stress. Harmless as a hormone may seem, this one kicks your appetite into gear and may even make it harder for your body to shed fat. So relax and help your waistline slim down.

Reason #4: Your Sleep Habits

Going to sleep is not exciting. Doing it feels like you’re doing nothing. But when you’re in the battle against the belly bulge, getting quality sleep every night is key. How important is it? When researchers concluded 16 years of research into the health of nearly 70,000 women, they saw that the women who slept five or fewer hours every night were at a 30-percent increased risk for gaining 30 pounds than those who got seven hours of shuteye on a nightly basis.

Reason #5: You’re Aging

This one is the hardest to accept, because there is nothing you can do to avoid getting older. With age, your metabolism drops, making it harder to burn off calories while at rest, but your appetite may not take a plunge. Making weight gain even more likely is the drop in estrogen and progesterone in women and testosterone in men. But don’t think aging means you have to simply accept weight gain.

By sleeping well, eating healthily, working out right, and cutting out stress, you can beat the odds and lose the belly fat that has taunted you, no matter your age. And I’m here to help. Call or email today to get started on an exercise program that will rid you of your belly fat once and for all. I’m here for you.

Picture This
Having trouble with motivation? Try this technique:

  1. Go through your photo albums and find a picture of yourself in your best shape ever. It may be a photo from your college or even high school days.
  2. Now go through your photos and find a picture of yourself in your worst shape ever. You may have to go through old shoe boxes of photos, since this photo may not have made it into your photo albums.
  3. Place the two photos side by side. You at your fittest; you at your fattest. Study the photos. Remember what it felt like to be in great shape. Remember what it felt like to be in terrible shape (you may be living that right now).
  4. Make a decision. Do you want to continue living your life in bad shape? Or will you shake off past failures and do what it takes to achieve the body you once had?

Share your two photos with me. Show me the great body that you once had and together we will get that body back.

IGNORE Dr. Oz .. seriously shut your brain off when he gives advice

The other day I was watching the show and as soon as he recommended 2 fat storing “fat loss foods” I changed the channel. 

==> 28 Day Transformation Challenge <==

First he recommended Liquid amino acids made from soy AND THEN he recommended Agave nectar.
First of all, almost every soy product you have access to in the grocery stores and even health food stores comes from Raw Soy, not fermented. 

Over 80% of all soy production in the US have been genetically modified – which drastically reduces the health benefits and make them bad for you. 

And raw soy is extremely high in toxins, it promotes estrogen production and limits your bodies ability to absorb essential minerals. 

In short, Raw Soy is Bad for You! And will cause your body to store fat rather than burn it. 


Then the Agave Nectar, which you hear about ALL THE TIME in marketing – as supposedly an effective and healthy fat burner. 

In it’s pure form it can be effective for burning fat – but just like soy, the majority of Agave products you can buy are heavily processed and contain a TON of sugar. 

You probably already know, sugar is the enemy of Fat Loss. 

I get frustrated when I see huge names like Dr. Oz giving suck Shitty advice. But he’s paid to do it, even if it hurts his viewers rather than helps them.

Rock on!!


You have to start making friends with Leptin, except Leptins not a person, it’s a hormone in your body that has VETO on whether or not your dropping body fat or not.

Your Leptin levels have to be at high levels in your body in order for you to maintain FAST fat loss results without hitting your muscle stores and hitting a plateau. You want to be consistently losing fat without muscle week in and week out and you want to avoid the annoying “plateau”.

So what does this have to do with cheating and munching on your favorite foods like icecream and pizza you ask?

Weeelll, when you start a diet your body’s Leptin levels are usually high but after a time, sometimes as little as a week your Leptin levels drop drastically and so does your fat loss.


And that’s where cheating comes in!!

Carb-Loading is the best way to keep Leptin up. That’s why I always say cheat for 20% of your meals each week and be AWESOME the rest of the week.

For the 20% cheat, it’s best to group those meals over a 1 or 2 day period so if you’re eating 4 meals a day thats 28 meals a week. 20% of that is 5.6 meals that you can cheat with .. HOORAAHHHH!!!

Another way to keep your leptin levels up is to strategically increase the amount of carbs you’re eating each day after your carb load. It’s a little more difficult and you can’t carb load 20% when doing this but it’s VERY effective when done right.

An example of this is to have carbs for breakfast on day 1 after cheat day, then breakfast and lunch on day 2, and then no carbs on day 3. There are lots of different variations for that and they play tightly with how many days and which days of the week you’re working out.

So here’s what you have to take away from this:
Don’t let your Leptin levels drop, do that by dieting for a period and then cheating like crazy 1 day a week or for half days 2 days a week. Something to look forward to eh 🙂


Rock on!!


Give it a go and tell me what you think 🙂



Rock on!!
