Overall, the Lean Belly Breakthrough program seems to be a great option for older individuals who have trouble getting rid of dangerous belly fat and are suffering from different diseases because of it.

Pulses — the dry edible seeds of beans, lentils, chickpeas and peas — are everywhere these days, and we couldn’t be happier about it. They’re filled with fiber and plant-based protein, plus minerals and B-vitamins. Overall, pulses reduce bloat by aiding your nervous and muscular systems, helping you build lean body mass.
So while we’re at the topic of carbs, don’t fall into the trap of low carb diets. Not only will you not have the energy to get through your day, you’ll experience dizziness, higher anxiety and sharp mood swings. Instead, low-glycemic carbs stabilize your blood sugar levels actually helping you lose weight, so stick with low-glycemic carbs and try to eat as many veggies as you can 😉
Kneel in front of a stability ball, draping your abs and hips over the ball. Place your hands on the ground in front of you and walk them out until the ball rolls beneath your thighs (as shown above).
Let’s face it: that marshmallowy middle you’re sporting didn’t get there overnight. Stressful days at the office, indulging in one-too-many cheat meals, or finding excuses to skip a day, week, or month’s worth of workouts are all making it easy to pack on the pounds and making it difficult to get them off.
From the sound of it, you might think leaky gut only affects the digestive system, but in reality it can affect more. Because Leaky Gut is so common, and such an enigma, I’m offering a free webinar on all things leaky gut. Click here to learn more about the webinar.
In an ideal world, we would be able to target the exact part of our body we want to burn calories from—but that’s just not how it works. Luckily, there are a few exercises that are especially effective at burning fat from the belly area and from the rest of your body.
The Right Time: Evenly distributing your protein intake throughout the day, otherwise known as protein pacing, has been shown to support fat loss and improve muscle strength and growth. Depending on your specific protein needs, you should aim to get 20-30 grams of protein in each meal, spaced over four to six small meals a day (7).
Hey Tom, congrats on the weight loss so far! As long as you remain in a calorie deficit, the beer gut will eventually disappear. Fat will come off different parts of your body at different rates, so don’t get discouraged! it’s down to your particular body, and how it likes to store fat.
Also, think about how you can add more walking to your day. Park farther from your destination and walk the rest of the way, take the stairs instead of the elevator, and stand while you talk on the phone.

Stand holding ball overhead, elbows bent and out to sides, and feet shoulder-width apart. Lift right knee to side; pull right elbow down to meet it. Return to starting position; repeat on other side. Bounce ball for 1 minute. Repeat sequence 3 more times.
Many get confused if they are thirsty, tired, or hungry, and end up nibbling sugary or fatty food. Always carry a water bottle, and make sure you keep sipping water throughout the day. One needs to drink six to eight glasses of water, though this depends on your weight and lifestyle. Calculate accordingly, and make sure you consume enough water.
Alcohol of all types is full of sugar, and sugar leads to fat. If you’ve managed to cut the sugar out of your life but still indulge in regular alcoholic beverages, you could be sabotaging yourself and not even know it. You may see a study now and then that says one alcoholic drink a day is good for the body because it helps you relax, or it thins the blood. But what those studies don’t talk about is the cumulative effect that has on the body, and whether or not you’d be better off in the stomach area by not having that drink each day.
One of the best pros about the Lean Belly Breakthrough program is that it can save your life, just like it did for the creator’s Dad. More specifically though, I really like how this program isn’t just about losing weight. It’s about transforming, not only your body, but also your entire health to live a better, stronger and longer life.
Want to know how to lose belly fat? For improved fat loss efforts, it’s time to introduce your body to intermittent fasting, which is best approached as a shift in lifestyle and eating patterns, not a diet. There’s no need to count calories or measure grams. Simply focus on extending the duration of time between eating the healthy foods you already eat, with a particular emphasis on healthy fats and proteins.
This is ratio of weight in kilograms to the square of height in meters. This parameter helps doctors judge whether the person will suffer from heart disease or strokes. Those having a BMI of 25-29.9 are considered overweight and those with a BMI of 30 are considered obese. However, this parameter is not always accurate in measuring belly fat. In fact, you can measure your belly fat with a measuring tape in front of the mirror, and set your own targets to reduce belly fat. Looking at the mirror and checking regularly will motivate you to lose the unhealthy fat lining your abdomen.
Natural sugar is not added and is contained naturally in foods. For example, fruit has some sugar, but it’s natural sugar. Foods with natural sugar are much better choices as they generally have more essential nutrients.
I’m pretty sure it’s accurate because I’ve had my bf measured by a trainer at my gym. I read your article and had bought caliper to do the skinfold myself but I was just doing something wrong cause the numbers I was getting were off. So I had the trainer do each test twice, with different tools. He did the tape measure, skinfold and InBody, and they were pretty much the same. The first test I had gone down to 15% (thanks to TLS) and then the second time I had him test me I was at 16%. Wasn’t a huge drop because I was starting from 18-19%. I actually did experience that a long time ago with the very low bf. My goal isn’t to go lower, I know it’s not practical or healthy, I just want “permanent great abs” and I just can’t seem to get the abs to “pop” and stay lean and tight year-round. It’s been my sticking point. My arms are getting nice muscle and definition. Legs and rear are getting there too, though a little slower. So overall, I can’t complain, loving the results, but these abs are driving me nuts.
To address your sleep problems, I recommend beginning by realigning your circadian rhythms to the natural rhythm of daylight and nightfall. Without this synchronization, aspects of your waking/sleeping system will be working at the wrong time, making it difficult to sleep at night, while increasing daytime sleepiness. For an in-depth explanation of how this works, and why it’s so critical for your overall health, please see my interview with researcher Dan Pardi. Three key factors to keep in mind are as follows:
The Lean Belly Breakthrough Diet was created by Bruce Krahn and is a program seeking to break through the amount of fat a person has built up over the course of many years. Bruce is a celebrity fitness instructor who has been around nutrition and weight loss for many years. According to him, it’s all about regaining balance and finding that happy medium to maintain your new weight.* The program claims it will help you lose and regain health and wellness, which was not possible due to the lack of balance currently the customer may be facing in their weight loss journey.
“Reducing belly fat takes a combination approach of a low-calorie diet that is high in fiber and low in carbohydrates and sugar along with cardiovascular and weight training,” Kashyap said. “If you are willing to do the work, you can move past genetics and lose it.”
If you are in the habit of living your life with minimal engagement in physical activity then you need to stop. Exercise or an active lifestyle has a way of increasing your metabolism by a great degree. Something that will go a long way in helping your body when it comes to burning fat. Therefore, failure to factor in physical activity in your daily life might be what is causing you that annoying belly fat.
Women who wake up and go to bed at the same time each evening have lower levels of body fat, according to a recent Brigham Young University study. Chaotic sleep habits cause your internal clock to go haywire, which in turn causes your body to secrete fat-storing hormones like cortisol. (Avoid these 10 more unhealthy weekend habits that set you up for a less-than-stellar week.)
It’s based on science. How would you explain overweight people who eat less than someone who is skinny and has a high metabolism? Genetic studies are based on science. I think that because you’re fit – you’ve learned to find the way your body loses fat and gains muscle. I have friends and coworkers that train and diet like dogs. They torture themselves and still cannot lose weight. I know that some people use carbs differently – some can switch from carb to fat burning more easily, some utilize fast twitch or slow twitch muscle fibers more easy and can therefore gain muscle and clear themselves of lactate more quickly. I have a combo of both, so I can use that. Some metabolize caffeine slower – and stay even while others crash after 1/2 hr of drinking it. It’s all to do with your alleles. PM me if anyone wants more info.
Start by cutting back on ultra-processed foods, bubbly drinks, gum, and sugary beverages. While no single food can “spot train” belly fat, some smart swaps can ease bloating, improve gut health (eliminating cramps and gas!), and help you feel less puffy. Fill up on these foods instead…
Many compounds are known to reduce hunger and others are known to increase the sensation of fullness you get from a meal. When a combination of proven molecules is used effectively, you can successfully reduce hunger and cravings and derive the maximum benefits from your diet.
You may have an apple-shaped or a pear-shaped body structure. Accumulation of fat occurs differently for different people, it actually depends on the body structure. For those whose bodies are pear-shaped, the fat tends to accumulate in the lower part of the body, like the buttocks. But for those whose bodies are apple-shaped, your body tends to store fat around the middle section, thus resulting in fat accumulation around the belly. You must know that there are two types of belly fat – visceral, which accumulates around the abdominal organs, and subcutaneous, which occurs between the skin and abdominal wall.
Lie on your right side with forearm directly under shoulder, hand perpendicular to your body, and legs stacked. Engage your abs and the right side of your waist, lifting your hips so your body forms a straight line from head to feet.

Hey Mike, actually I have one more question. I’ve read that you need to eat carbs to “fuel the fire” to burn fat. But I seem to have a lot of carb sensitivities and bloat very easily, even with brown rice. I read your article “How to get rid of that damn bloated stomach”. So, do I need to eat carbs to cut, and how much do you recommend per day? Thank you!! 🙂
