When Bruce Krahn’s father-in-law suffered a major heart attack on an airplane, Dr. Heinrick recommended he try the 2-minute ritual. According to Krahn, his father-in-law lost 9 pounds of belly fat in 3 days, and 30 pounds in a month. The Lean Belly Breakthrough program was created by Bruce Krahn and Dr. Heinrick based on these results.
Hey Julia, losing weight is simply a matter of being in a calorie deficit. The 5:2 diet is pretty similar to some alternate-day fast protocols. From what I understand, it’s 2 days a week of extremely low calories, and then 5 days at maintenance calories. As long as you eat at your actual maintenance during the 5 days, and don’t binge, you should be in a deficit for the week and lose weight over time. If that works for you, that’s great. Most people would choose a more traditional approach pf being in a 20-25% deficit every day instead.
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 seems that Bruce already knows what works and what doesn’t, and in his program he offers scientifically proven meal plans and workout strategies that would help you shed unwanted fat, develop lean muscles, and enhance your flexibility in a fast and safe manner.
However, we won’t say that Lean Belly Breakthrough is one of these programs. Bruce Krahn teaches different techniques that were designed to provide long-term results, and based on our research, it seems that there are many medical articles and studies that prove Dr. Heinrick’s “internal irritation” theory about belly fat storage.
I spent a year in personal training after some bad life stuff had me at my heaviest. I went from 147-135, however I took my body fat % from 38% to 30% in that year. So while It doesn’t look like I lost much weight, I converted a lot of fat to muscle. I am now in the dreaded belly fat stage. Everything else has come along nicely and it’s made the belly fat even more obvious. For the past 6 months I have been stuck, hovering between 134-137lbs with my % hovering between 30-31%. I’m doing most of the stuff here you suggest, but now I’m wondering if maybe I am doing too much cardio? I tend to (according to the machine) burn 500 calories in about 30 mintues on a precore 3 times a week. I also swim, and walk a lot. I did a big calorie deficit and have been eating between 1000-1100 a day with high protein. I’m always burning more than I eat. I did in desperation try a few diets like paleo or gluten free for a few months at a time but they didn’t make a difference.

You don’t need more than 1 to 1.2 grams of protein per pound of body weight to maintain lean mass so long as your calorie deficit isn’t too large and you’re weightlifting at least a few times per week (and training your entire body).
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.
