I just returned from a 3 week trip to South America and met several
bodybuilders there. One guy had just recently won 1st place in the
middleweight division of a regional natural bodybuilding contest. When I
meet successful bodybuilders like this I automatically go into "interview
mode" and try to pump them for as much information as possible.
I find it interesting that in a country where the dietary staples are
beans and rice and many different (and delicious!) fruits, these
bodybuilders are eating very little of that stuff. I hope I don't sound
like a broken record here, but all the guys "in the know" are limiting
carbs and eating plenty of protein like chicken, beef, and eggs to lose
bodyfat while maintaining muscle mass.
5 GREAT WAYS TO BURN MORE FAT TODAY!
1. Cut back on your carbohydrate intake and do not eat carbohydrates
before bed...and NEVER eat poor quality carbohydrates.
Poor quality carbohydrates are those that contain sugar or are highly
processed. These would include most breakfast cereals, breads, snack
foods, candies, and even fruits and juices. Eating these foods immediately
prior to bedtime will likely result in increased fat deposit and will
prevent your body from maintaining a successful fat-burning mode.
2. Increase your muscle mass!
The more lean muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn even
at rest. Muscle is extremely active metabolically. Do some resistance
training, add some muscle, and crank up that metabolism.
3. Never let yourself get too hungry, or too stuffed.
It really is all about moderation. Time your meals so that you eat before
you are starving . . . doing this one simple thing will cause you to
almost always eat less. When you do eat, stop when you're satisfied, not
when you are so stuffed you cannot even get down another bite.
4. Eat more high fiber foods.
Most of us do not get enough fiber in our daily diets, and thatís just a
shame. Fiber not only promotes overall general health, but also can
significantly aid in your fat-burning efforts. Leafy greens and salads are
ideal sources of fiber.
5. Use a thermogenic supplement.
Monday through Friday I use a thermogenic supplement 2 to 3
times a day. Then I cycle off of it on the weekend. There are several
good thermogenic supplements on the market but I had great results
with Herbal Genesis, it's PROVEN to accelerate fat loss while
preserving muscle tissue. Plus, it has a special ingredient that
activate those stubborn A2 receptors located, in men...the love
handles, and in women...the hips, thighs, and buttocks.

lowering body fat. They've worked very well for me and I sincerely hope
they work for you, too.
