Research also shows that workouts involving high-intensity interval training (HIIT) can help reduce excess fat around your middle. Besides working your core, try incorporating a day or two of more vigorous exercise into your weekly schedule. (You can start with these three beginner routines.) Keep in mind that you can lower your total body fat percentage even by moving around more at work, according to another study.
Leafy greens like collard greens, watercress, kale, and arugula may not be on your everyday list, but they all contain a compound called sulforaphane. This nutrient has been shown to act directly on the genes that determine “adipocyte differentiation”—basically, turning a stem cell into a fat cell. A healthier intake of the compound means a healthier body weight for you. And just a scant teaspoon of vinaigrette will help your body absorb the fat-soluble nutrients.
From the sound of it, you might think leaky gut only affects the digestive system, but in reality it can affect more. Because Leaky Gut is so common, and such an enigma, I’m offering a free webinar on all things leaky gut. Click here to learn more about the webinar.

All you do is squeeze the lemon into the water, grate some of the zest into the water, and then drink! The best time to drink lemon water is right in the morning before drinking or eating anything else.
I have since read the articles and understand the calorie deficit logic behind the fat loss and have also started my journey. Another question that I have would be when do I stop this calorie deficit routine? I assume it would be after I have attained my fat loss goal but how should I eat and workout after that point onwards?
Meanwhile, 3 weeks into legion supplements (forge, phoenix, pulse) on the BLS workout program and down 2% BF to 16% and hovering at 219-220# – as well as a noticeable difference in the mirror. I’ve run this cycle before on another program (stoppani) and this progress would have taken me 2 months. Thanks again! I’m planning on sticking with a 25-30% deficit on BLS until I’m down to around ~10%, and running a caloric surplus cycle again. Just picked up BBLS and will stick with the BLS program for a few cycles this year then move on to BBLS. Thanks again Mike, you’ve really helped in many ways!
If you’re dehydrated, it can be hard to tell if you’re hungry or just thirsty. If you’re craving a mid-day snack, have a glass of water and wait a few minutes before reassessing how hungry you really are. Water also helps food move through your digestive system, lessening feelings of bloating. It’s a good idea to keep a water bottle with you throughout the day. Add in cucumber slices or fresh fruit to infuse flavor.

The Cure: There is no miracle cure which will reduce your belly fat overnight. And no particular treatment is there targeting only your belly fat. But in a positive note, the normal weight loss programs affects the belly fat faster than the other parts of the body because the type of fat deposited in your belly is metabolically more active and easier to lose. So don’t lose your heart. Gear up and start a strict regime to trim your tummy.
Yoga is equally effective at strengthening your body, especially your abs and back. It improves the posture tremendously to create a taller, leaner appearance. Pilates and many mat-based exercises are also great alternatives. The important thing is that you find an activity you like to do. This will greatly improve your odds of sticking with it.
Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on your weight in relation to your height, and applies to most adult men and women aged 20 and over. For children aged 2 and over, BMI percentile is the best assessment of body fat.
Once you’ve established a regular cardio routine, add two or three weight training sessions on nonconsecutive days to your weekly workouts; everyone naturally gains some fat as they age, but building muscle tone can significantly slow the production of belly fat. In a study conducted at the University of Minnesota, overweight women who did twice-weekly strength training routines that included eight to 10 exercises of major muscle groups, from biceps curls to leg presses, gained 67 percent less visceral fat over two years than women who didn’t do strength training regularly.
Solution? Fasting. You can do a full on fast, or you can just eat two meals a day with snacking between. The important thing is to keep your calorie intake as normal as you can. I am now below my desired weight for height and body frame and the weight loss is identical to the first day of my diet. This is because when you fast, either between meals or for days ( which is totally healthy people been doing it thousands of years ) your metabolism does not slow down.
Thanks for the article! Great read, as usual 🙂 what are your thoughts on Effedra? It’s been really popular in my gym as of late. I’m kind of skeptical. Does it work as good as people say? Would it interfere with Forge?

If you’re trying to banish flab, weight training three times a week for a half hour each session — if you’re a beginner — is ideal, White says. Once your flab is under control, two weight training sessions a week usually will help you maintain tone, he says.
Walk as tall as you can. Do back and leg stretches daily to improve your posture. When you’re driving to work, sit up nice and straight and adjust the rear-view mirror so that you’ll know when you’re slouching. Don’t let your shoulders fall forward when you’re at your desk. You can look a size smaller just by doing these things.
1. Interval Training. While exercising, it is recommended to alternate short bursts of increased activity with small periods of slow activity. For example, intersperse brief episodes of sprinting in between your walking sessions. According to researches, by including interval training in your exercise routine you will be able to burn more calories.
Instead of satisfying your sweet tooth with some refined sugar, turn to berries and enjoy a slimmer waistline in no time. Berries are loaded with antioxidants, which can help reduce inflammation throughout the body, and research from the University of Michigan reveals that rats given a berry-rich diet shaved off a significant proportion of their belly fat when compared to a control group. Berries like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries are also loaded with resveratrol, an antioxidant pigment that has been linked to reductions in belly fat and a reduced risk of dementia, to boot.

Hi Mike, I’ve been a big fan for a while, and I’ve posted before. I’m 47 this month, so, to be honest, I’m a bit scared to even try a bulk because of how difficult it is to lose fat at this point–I do admit my metabolism has evolved in a good way. If you were me, would you continue cutting even more (before even considering a bulk)? Maintain? Or am I lean enough to attempt a reverse diet then clean bulk? If I do a bulk it would be the only/last one, because I almost have the strength and mass I want. I’m 6’0″ 188# right now. Thanks for all your help, and I am currently cutting w/ both the Forge and just added Phoenix.

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.
