They talk about increasing fat oxidation rates, preserving lean mass, supporting the thyroid, inducing thermogenesis, inhibiting enzymes related to fat storage, inducing enzymes that cause fat loss, manipulating hormone and neurotransmitter levels, reducing water retention, improving nutrient partitioning, and more.
With this program, you will discover two exemplary features, which you can see at the moment when you look in the mirror, which will immediately tell you if you are at risk of having a fatal heart attack.
Target stress. Stress causes an increase in cortisol, a hormone causes the body to store extra fat, particularly in the midsection. Stress can also cause emotional eating, or eating for comfort rather than out of hunger.
With age, your body chemistry changes, and many of those changes make it increasingly difficult to lose weight. For example, around the age of 30, your human growth hormone (HGH) level begins to drop off, and HGH helps with both fat metabolism and muscle building. And, as noted in the featured article:
2. Without moving your hips or shoulders, open your raised leg to the right and raised arm to the left. Now, concentrating on your abs, return your raised leg and arm to the center. Do 10–12 reps, then switch sides and repeat.
What about Green tea? Does it really help in reducing the body fat somehow? I drink about 5-6 cups of green tea everyday and have a maximum of 1000 calories per day. I try to avoid carbs as much as i can and i have a fasted HIIT every morning. I’ve been doing this for a month now but there hasnt been any significant change in my weight loss, even though my face has gotten thinner and so have my lower limbs but that belly fat is definitely not going away easy. I’m a 21 year old female, 5’4 and 132 pounds and my target is 120 pounds.
Not only that, it’s dangerous for your health as well. The visceral fat (also known as the fat around your abdomen) can cause many health issues including diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and even cancer.

Are you finding it difficult to fit into your little black number? Is belly fat giving you sleepless nights? If your answer is yes, you need to make some lifestyle changes to get the figure of your dreams. No doubt, belly fat looks aesthetically displeasing. It can assume serious proportions and affect long term health, if not curbed at the right time.
Most people are not aware that leptin plays an enormously important role in the development of obesity. Leptin is a hormone produced by your fat cells that is just as important as insulin in determining your risk for type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. It also impacts how much you eat and how much fat you burn, and leptin resistance specifically causes your body to produce and accumulate visceral fat around your midline. So how do you become leptin resistant? In short, by:
3. Exercise Ball Crunch. This is one of the most effective ways to strengthen and flatten abs. Studies show this exercise is 40% more effective than regular ab crunches as it targets smaller muscles for flat toned abs including the oblique’s for a small waist and the outermost muscles that your typical ab crunch may miss. To begin, lie down on the ball positioning it under the lower back. Place arms behind your head. Tighten your abs as you lift your torso off the ball while keeping the ball stable. Lower back down and repeat 15 times with 1-3 sets.
Losing belly fat is important to your health. The American Heart Association reports that men with a waist size over 40 inches and women with a waist size over 35 inches should take immediate steps to lose weight in order to reduce the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other chronic conditions. Even if you are not in the “danger” range of waist size, belly fat is unsightly and makes you appear unfit. While many supplements and fad diets promise fast, easy ways to create a slimmer midsection, natural approaches may be safer and more successful.
The Lean Belly Breakthrough features an exercise routine of 5 videos for workouts that only last for 2 minutes each. This means that you will be spending only about 10 minutes every day on your workouts which should definitely be very easy to deal with.
Luckily, exercise can help spur things along when it comes to that pesky stomach fat. “Visceral fat responds well when… [you] start exercising and watching your calories and what you eat,” Harris-Pincus says. And while endless crunches aren’t your ticket to a flat stomach, it is still important to train your ab muscles. “Everything radiates from the center of your body – your balance, your posture, your functional movement,” says Joe Ardito, founder of Fit Crush NYC. “You can perform better when you have a strong core.”
Real peanut butter is made with two ingredients: peanuts, and maybe some salt. You already know that peanuts give you belly-slimming monounsaturated fats, tummy-filling fiber, and metabolism-boosting protein. But peanuts have a hidden weapon in their weight-loss utility belt: Genistein, a compound that acts directly on the genes for obesity, helping to turn them down and reduce your body’s ability to store fat. (Beans and lentils have the same magic ingredient, albeit in slightly less delicious form.) But be careful of the brand you buy: if you see ingredients like sugar, palm oil, or anything you can’t pronounce, put it back. They’ll undermine any good the peanuts might do.
Sophia and I may have accompanied Kiki on her journey, but we are fit and slim and can only judge the food. Healthy eating is one of our passions, and we like the meal plan in this program. This is how it should be done: healthy food, good nutrition, and delicious recipes are the key to a great figure. Most people don’t know how great healthy food can be if you use great recipes.
When you are trying to lose belly fat, it could be a good idea to take a supplement of Omega 3. Not only will it help you to lose weight, but taking an Omega 3 supplement will help you to increase circulation. This is a great way to lose extra fat, and will even help you to get rid of cellulite.
While i do see that i have lost weight from 142 lbs to 136 lbs and my other parts of the body shaping up, i do not see the stubborn fat around my belly going away.. I workout for about 6 days a week which includes 1 day of 30 mins HIIT. Please suggest if this plan that i am following is sufficient or i need to do anything more ?
Interval Exercise – Interval exercise is great for reducing belly fat, small bursts of hard core exercise peppered in with low intensity exercise will keep your body guessing, raise your heart rate burning more calories, and increase fat burning in a big way!
For instance, bad cholesterol is eliminated to a great degree as well as triglycerides which lead to heart diseases. And the absence of bad cholesterol which normally clogs arteries will reduce your risk of heart disease.
I am 5’1 woman weighing in at a hefty 121 pounds, haha! I simply hate to count calories. I lift weights, do HIIT and eat a strict clean, no BS (bread, sugar) diet. Do I HAVE to count calories to be deficient? I tried calorie counting apps and they are daunting! Is there a simpler way to say ‘eat this for breakfast’ ‘eat this for lunch’? I can’t get into the %percentage% garble that goes on. But, I want a leaner, cut look! I am starting to see abdominal muscles and biceps popping out. But- a stall is happening on the horizon!
Hey Mike, great info in all your posts! I’m on a cut now and just picked up both Phoenix and Forge. You mention on your cut phase you take 1 serving of each both pre-workout and pre-evening cardio. At 6’4, 225#, 18%BF, does that mean to match your plan I would take 8-9 Forge Caps morning as well as 8-9 Forge caps evening in fasted states? Thanks in advance!
Bruce is the nickname of the man who is responsible for this program. He is a celebrity fitness instructor and health expert who has been involved in nutrition and weight loss niches for decades. According to him, to maintain balanced weight is about regaining balance and find that happy medium to be success at it.
For example, dangerous visceral fat — the type of deep fat that tends to accumulate near your belly, surrounding your vital organs — raises the risk for serious conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and many others. According to a report published in the Lancet, as of 2005, globally “Excess body weight was the sixth most important risk factor contributing to the overall burden of disease worldwide.” (1) The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that in 2005 approximately 1.6 billion people worldwide were overweight and that at least 400 million adults were obese.
You’ve read that interval training or other cardio exercises can help reduce body fat and that strength training can as well, so it makes sense that including both in your weekly routine would help reduce belly fat even more.
Hey! I took some time and went through the videos. Honestly, he seems to make a pretty easy subject more convoluted than it needs to be. The simple fact is restrict calories and you will lose weight. You adrenals are probably fine.
For some populations, trouble affording healthy food. It’s been found that individuals from disadvantaged communities seem to have greater risks for obesity than more affluent individuals of the same age.
To break it down, I work out 7 days a week, lifting every other day. On the days I don’t lift, I do core exercises. The cardio is interval training at least 3 times a week, and the total cardio time is always at least 40 minutes.
Eat more monounsaturated fats, easily remembered as MUFAS, found in nuts, olive oil and seeds. Other fat burners include avocados, green tea and whole grains. Put them on your grocery list, and keep your fridge full and your body running on these healthy sources of energy. Your trimmer tummy will thank you.
Thanks for the article! Great read, as usual 🙂 what are your thoughts on Effedra? It’s been really popular in my gym as of late. I’m kind of skeptical. Does it work as good as people say? Would it interfere with Forge?
One study confirmed this by following exercisers who did three days of strength training and three days of cardio a week. When comparing this group to the cardio-only group, researchers found that the combined group reduced more belly fat and increased their lean muscle tissue.
