Hi Mike – quick question from the UK! I’m a busy mum and although I’ve tried, I just can’t fit in doing a training session first thing before getting kids ready and getting to work – plus my gym doesn’t open until 4pm! I’m training at the earliest of 6pm at night – if I have breakfast around 7am, small snack at 10am and lunch before 1pm and nothing else before training, would this count as being fasted? I’ve been having a small snack (cottage cheese for example) at around 4pm – I’ve lost quite a few inches in 8 weeks so things are moving in the right direction but my mummy tummy lower abs isn’t shifting. I know it’s early days and this time I’m determined to do this properly and not yo-yo from being skinny fat. I don’t want to lose motivation thinking that I’m doing something wrong as I’ve stuck to my diet plan for the entire 8 weeks with no cheating which is a first for me. I’m getting better at hiits and feel an improvement in my fitness and I’m moving up the weights, so I think I’m doing ok. But now I’m concerned so I’d really appreciate your opinion if I need to change things around.
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.
There is so much content and so many rituals and knowledge to gain from this program. So naturally, there is a lot of reading that has to be done with the Lean Belly Breakthrough. However, there are some videos that are included, which always helps and the manuals are very easy-to- read. Not only that, but the content is engaging. So, you never really feel like it’s a chore to read them.
Hi Mike. I really like all your articles. Thank you! I’m planning to follow your routine and take the 3 supplements you recommended. However, I’m so confused about the dosage. I read from the labels that the serving size is 4 capsules for both forge and phoenix. According to your routine, that would be 8 capsules for each supplement per day. Isn’t it much? I’m 180 lbs btw. I’d appreciate if you could give me some pointers. All the best!
Lean Belly Breakthrough seems to be working for me but I have to agree that the way Bruce sells the plan is really bad. His news letters also link to others selling related product using the same long video selling method. This makes it look like a scam just to get as much money out of people as possible.
Listen to your mum – dieting is faddish. Instead, improve the “quite” to “all” healthy and eat only nutritionally balanced, healthy foods. Cut out all sweets and junk foods, apart from an occasional treat, as humans would have always done till recent times. The exercise is important, and include plenty of stealth exercise, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator and cycling to the shops instead of driving, etc.
The author of the Lean Belly Breakthrough is Bruce Krahn. He is a personal trainer and he has worked with over 100 clients, including celebrities such as Nelly Furtado and Criss Angel. He has also been featured in a lot of health and fitness magazines including Men’s Exercise, Best Health and the Toronto Star.
Many studies have shown that fat around the midsection can be incredibly dangerous for your health and can increase your risk of cancer, diabetes, heart problems and much more. The problem is that belly fat is a much more dangerous type of fat than the subcutaneous fat padding that you have around your entire body. Instead, it is visceral fat that lies deep within your midsection and surrounds your internal organs. If someone has 50 pounds of body fat that is spread all over their body, they will be much less at risk than someone who carries all of their excess fat in their stomach.
Another example of a functional exercise would be to work with a stability ball, as your body will have to engage a wide range of core muscles to stabilize itself on the ball. Keep in mind, however, that in order to really get “six-pack” abs, you have to shed fat. Men need to get their body fat down to about six percent, and women around nine percent in order to achieve a classic six-pack look.
Thanks for the detailed review and tips in this article. I’m still early in the program and I’ve tried out the “2 minute ritual” thingy so far. TBH, I haven’t read all the guides yet. So far, I’ve lost 3 lbs in a week and feel great. Fingers crossed – I need to leave on a family vacation to Hawaii in a few weeks. Hoping to tone down about 9lbs by then.
