The Right Amount: Researchers have found that 1.2-1.6 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day is optimal in promoting sustained weight loss (3). To reach this level, a typical woman needs approximately 90-120 grams of protein per day while a typical man needs approximately 105-140 grams per day.
With swimming, you get the benefits of cardio – from losing weight to toning your body – all at the same time! The strokes you choose should be up-tempo and strenuous in order to help you burn more calories. You can start by going for a swim once or twice every week.
Belly fat is associated with many health issues and diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. Specifically it’s the deepest layer of belly fat that poses health risks. That’s because these “visceral” fat cells actually produce hormones and other substances that can affect your health. There are many dangerous and ineffective gimmicks about how to lose belly fat. While there is no “magic bullet” that will target abdominal fat in particular, this article will explain what causes an expanding waistline and how you can make that spare tire go away.
Even most personal trainers and athletes agree that the quality of your diet is the No. 1 factor to address in order to lose belly fat. Once you improve your eating habits, ab workouts and core exercises are like the icing on the cake. Doing about 2–4 ab workouts weekly can strengthen and define your midsection while you also work on losing body fat all over through improving your diet, sleep and stress.
It’s quite commendable that this program uses a combination of natural foods to reverse most of the damage that has been caused on your body due to unhealthy living. It helps deal with the root of the problem by getting rid of deadly belly fat that is the source of most heart diseases since it plays a big role in clogging your arteries. In the same way, it helps to enhance your insulin levels to solve your diabetes problem quickly. So you shouldn’t expect a recurrence of any of these diseases.
Processed Food – First off, all that processed food will only pack on belly fat and make you unhealthy. Try to remove all the prepackaged, preservative filled junk from your diet and replace it with whole foods. (11)
The material certainly has a lot of good information. BUT… The promo text specifically says “This program actually forces us to cheat on the weekend”, and “We are even eating bread, pasta and other carbs” – that simply isn’t true about the program; it’s 7 days a week from a restricted food list. ALSO, it says “We then pick the foods we like from the list and eat as much as we want” – not true, the program is a permanent 1800 calorie per day restriction. FINALLY, repeated promotion of “This Shockingly Effective, Fast And Simple 2-Minute Ritual ” – there’s no 2 minute ritual, there are 7 rituals which are more like daily habits one needs to form, and #6 is “Perform each of the following 2 minute exercises daily”, and there are 5 of them, plus meditation and stretching. 2 minute daily ritual is simply a LIE.

I’m not disputing that genetics are important. Metabolisms can differ a bit, and body fat, lean mass, etc. have an effect, as well. Plus, some people’s metabolisms are generally more adaptive. Some people are insulin resistant, but the vast majority will do better with more carbs if they’re lifting weights. Of course, some people respond better to training, as well. The fact remains that you have to consume fewer calories than you burn in order to lose weight.
Eat Healthier. Apply the 8 nutrition rules. Eat breakfast. Eat every 3 hours. Proteins, veggies & fruits with each meal. Carbs post workout only. 2 cups of water with each meal. Whole foods 90% of the time.
Sugar and Sugar Substitutes – Yep, all of it! Try to get your sweet fix from nature, fruit (especially the belly fat burning fruits outlined above) is a great alternative to traditional sugar, which will only turn into more fat. Even worse, fake sugar will make you sick and tell your body to hold onto fat. (12)

Hello- I purchased Lean Belly Breakthrough and had some questions regarding getting started. I contacted Bruce and he actually responded to my email personally. This was a pleasant surprise. I am enjoying the program so far.
You can also try some of more exotic whole grains. Instead of your usual rice, try quinoa or add some wheat berries to your salad. You can learn more about whole grain options with these resources:
What is this approach we are speaking of? It is a 2 minute ritual that Dr. Heinrick demonstrated to Krahn on his father-in-law after he had suffered a major heart attack. According to Krahn, this resulted in a loss of 9 pounds of belly fat in 3 days and thirty pounds in one month. After testing the program we can tell you that these results are quite exaggerated (for marketing purposes, obviously), but the truth is that our friend Kiki did get decent results thanks to this program, which is great given how easy it is to apply.
It’s true that your immune system won’t be quite as resilient when you’re in a calorie deficit. However, you can mitigate the damage by making sure the vast majority of your calories are coming from nutrient-dense foods, taking a multivitamin, reducing stress where possible, etc. If you ALWAYS get sick when you cut, you might be lowering calories too much, exercising too much, or not sleeping enough. Check this out:
The most important thing you need to do is to program yourself mentally. Don’t use a scale to measure your progress. If you work out with weights, you may gain a few pounds while losing inches around the waist. Instead, use that pair of jeans that you want to fit into again, or a pair that fits you now. You’ll see a slight change every few weeks, and that should give you confidence.
Ramp up the cardio. Do aerobic exercises which get your heart pumping, burn calories quickly and facilitate fat loss all over the body, including your belly. You can’t “spot-burn” belly fat, but it’s usually the first to burn off when you exercise, regardless of body shape or size.
However, aging also plays a role. Muscle mass might diminish slightly with age, while fat increases. Loss of muscle mass also decreases the rate at which your body uses calories, which can make it more challenging to maintain a healthy weight.
2. Sweep: Start with basic abs tuck (standing crunch). For that you have to lift one knee using the abs, and bend the other knee to sit slightly on the ground. Bring the rib cage to the bellybutton so that the spine is in C-curve position. Simultaneously, squeeze the oblique on one side to crunch while reaching down for the opposite foot.
