2. Many believe that drinking of beer is sure the reason of beer belly growing. But a “beer belly” doesn’t grow after drinking beer. In result of the conducted researches it was established that belly fat and beer have no relationship to each other. When you drink alcohol and eat large portions of food, which contains a large amount of calories, this stimulates the accumulation of excess mass in the abdomen. But why does the belly in men begin to appear from drinking beer? It’s very simple ― from drinking alcohol appetite increases, as well as the influence of hormones. Hormones respond for the regulation of satiety, and when drinking alcohol people always eat a lot of food and body gets extra calories. You must always control yourself from eating too much food, as otherwise it will lead to weight gain. By the way, if you want to quickly lose fat in the abdominal area, then be sure to download the book “Lean Belly Breakthrough”. A good friend of mine got his body in a proper shape for only 5 weeks.

Hi Mike, I’ve been following your book, “Thinner leaner stronger”. As you recommended from the book, I’ve been eating 30~40g of protein(whey powder) and 40~50g carbs before and after workout. After reading this article, I’m not sure what to follow. Should I change plan to fasted workout and skip protein & carbs intake before workout?( I would still eat them at another time to keep my micros intake goal.) I can only workout at night around 10pm. In this case, which workout is better, fasted or fed? If I do fasted with all the supplements, would it keep me up all night? I always appreciate your help.

Bench 155, OHP 105, Deadlift 235, Squat 150 for 7 reps. Definitely feel skinny fat and not sure if I’m doing things right.

Can you comment on Phoenix and forskolin? The study you reference in your write-up used a 250mg of 10% forskolin extract twice a day, which would equal 50mg- the dose in your product. However, your product does not list an extract percentage. Most forskolin products will show the dose and extract. Sabinsa provides 98%, 95%, 40%, 20%, and 10% standarized extracts of coleus forskohlii. I was curious what your extract percentage was and Karim from Legion responded that he had to contact the manufacturer because he was unsure.

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.
