When you’re leptin-resistant, your body no longer hears its own signals to stop eating, burn fat, or pass up sugary foods. As a result, you feel hungry, crave sweets, and your body continues to store fat even though it already has more than enough. When your body routinely stores this excess as visceral fat, you increase your risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, vascular disease, atherosclerosis (hardening of your arteries), and an increased thickness in the walls of your heart.

What’s up Mike, hope all is well with you. So I bulked for 6 months gained about 18 pounds went from 10%-16% 175 pounds to 193 pounds. I have been cutting started at 193pounds now for a while I’m in my 14th week of my cut I’m sitting at about 178pounds. My BF% now is about 9-10% and I’m still losing about a pound a week and I feel good, I use IF daily for about 16 hours a day and everything feels like it is still on track, but I still have a little bit of hip fat to loose before I’m to the shredded point. I started my cut at about 2,200 cals and I have since dropped them for the past month down to about 1900-2000. My question to you is should I start to reverse diet my calories up 100 per week to get back to maintenance? If so should I definitely be able to lean up some more while bringing the cals back up since I will still be in a deficit for at least another month before I hit TDEE right? My goal is to get around 7-8% then start to bulk again. What route do you think I need to go? Thanks, have a good day.
“You need to exercise at full intensity because the end goal is to burn more calories, and high intensity exercise does just that,” said Natalie Jill, a San Diego, California-based certified personal trainer.
Correct shin splints. If you get painful shin splints (pain along the front of your shins when you run), you may be over-pronating (landing with most of your weight on the outer side of your foot). There are shoes designed specifically to help alleviate this.
Hi Mike. I recently had my body fat reading taken at a UFC Gym (chain) and the reading was much higher than I expected. 16%. The caliper readings have me around 12-13 I believe. It seems like a sales scam to stretch out the number of ‘sessions’ I would need to reach my % goal. Keep in mind fat loss wasn’t even why I was meeting with this trainer–it’s for Muay Thai. Any ways I don’t want to be naive and not consider the reading. I’m posting a few pics here (shadow and light) and I’d like your opinion—do you think 16% is a possibility? Thanks. MFL member.

Every day, we only ate what the meal plans of the lean belly breakthrough guide told us to eat. We did not cut any corners! After breakfast, we did the one minute power workout, and we repeated it after lunch. You can do more if you want – the more you do, the more fat you’ll burn.
However, since in some cases part of the resulting weight loss may be replaced with muscle gain, depending on how much exercise you incorporate, just measuring your total may not reveal the exact outcomes.
Hey Mike! Great articles and I think I will buy your book. But I’m confused on something. I have a very, very slow metabolism and read your article “How to Speed Up Your Metabolism” on muscle for life. So, I know I need to keep the metabolism up and up my calories. But your sample meal plan listed here (which is 140 g breakfast, salad, whey, dinner, and some protein) is really, really light. I’m guessing this is 1,500 calories, if that, which is highly restrictive. How do you reconcile the two articles? And since I’m a hair shy of 6′ and 200 lbs 20% bf, is 1,500 cal the right fat loss calorie target for me?

The transversus abdominal muscles are located at your sides, below the obliques. Often called “lower abs,” these are the muscles that women who are trying to lose their belly after pregnancy should concentrate on. Exercises that call for raising the legs instead of the upper body are effective at strengthening the transversus.
All trans fats should be avoided, but contrary to popular advice, saturated fats are a key component of a healthy diet that will promote weight loss. Most people need as much as 50-85 percent of your daily calories in the form of healthy fat for optimal health.
3. Tabata: Tabata is another form of interval training and involves 8 rounds of 20 seconds exercise followed by 10 seconds rest. Sounds easy enough but exercise should be done at a high intensity. This exercise can be done using rowing machines, dumbbells or thrusters. This is a tough exercise and is best for those who have very less time in their hands.
