How To Lose Weight And Learn The Truth About Six Pack Abs

How To Lose Weight And Learn The Truth About Six Pack Abs
by Yomi A

It is a known fact that almost everyone would like to get rid of belly fat. It is the goal of many people to replace their belly fat with solid six-pack abs.

Of course, there are many so called experts on the internet who try to impress people and claim they have the secrets to developing a killer six pack. The real trick is being able to find good, solid advice that actually works.

There are some important facts you should consider in order to develop a six-pack ab. Knowing the right exercises to perform and understanding your food intake is very important.

Developing the six-pack abdominals you are longing to get takes more than just performing long, slow distance running or doing hundreds of crunches. A book called the truth about six-pack abs explains how some of these misunderstandings and misconceptions can be easily accepted by people who think that is the way to get six pack abs.

People think doing a lot of repetitive cardio is the best way to lose body fat. Actually performing short explosives exercises that can elevate your heart rate quickly have shown to be more effective and take less time to perform.

There are a lot of sports supplements that claim to help you lose weight and are consider “fat burners”. These supplements do far from what they claim, are unnecessary and wastes your money in the long run. When you read the truth about six pack abs you learn that these products have been found to offer no long lasting results, and only provide a short fat loss duration if any at all.

Another big misconception is that people need to invest in the latest abdominal gadgets that are seen in the magazines and on the infomercials. Things such as the ab-belt, the ab-rocket and other gimmicks do not offer a long-term solution for your ab training.

If you want to know the real facts about building and keeping six pack abdominal muscles, then you should read “The truth about six pack abs” program. A fitness professional has complied the program from his own research. On top of that he has personally used these techniques and methods with a lot of his own clients. This is something I recommend you look into if you are serious about losing weight around your stomach area and seek to get six pack abs.

The Latest Nutrition Info

The Latest Nutrition Info

Big News! Craig Ballantyne has added a brand new set of
Turbulence Training Fat Loss Nutrition Guidelines to the TT
package. This new report comes from nutrition expert, Dr. Chris
Mohr, Ph.D. Today we want to introduce Chris to you, and get him to answer some tough fat loss nutrition questions.So first, Dr. Mohr’s credentials…

Dr. Chris Mohr is a consultant to a number of media outlets and
corporations including the Discovery Health Channel, Clif Bar, Fit Fuel, and Labrada Nutrition. He has authored or co-authored several textbooks and has written nearly 500 articles.

Dr. Mohr has bachelors and masters degrees in Nutrition, from Penn State University and the University of Massachusetts, respectively. He received his PhD in exercise physiology from the University of Pittsburgh and is also a registered dietitian.

Through his company, Mohr Results, Dr. Mohr offers consultations, provides corporate seminars, and will soon be providing nutrition services for trainers.

Now, before we get to the interview with Dr. Mohr, I have something to admit:

Nutrition is more important than training.

There, I said it. In fact, I’ve admitted it all along. It doesn’t
matter how good the Turbulence Training workouts are, you won’t get maximum results without the right nutrition.

And that’s why I’ve gone to Dr. Mohr to get his advanced fat loss tips.
CB: For fat loss, what kind of shake is best after weights? Do we
need high-carb, sugar shakes?

CM:
I still think this is an important meal to get some carbohydrates
in to fuel you for your next workouts, since carbohydrate intake is likely low throughout the remainder of the day.

Even during a fat loss phase, I recommend folks get at least a 1:1 ratio of carbs:protein.
CB: But what about sugar specifically? If a client is 35, 5’10”, and 21% body fat, does he need sugar in his post-workout drink?

CM:
I do still think simple carbs are important during this recovery
period.

Carbs don’t have to be the enemy—if the rest of your carb intake is mainly veggies, the post workout simple carbs will be a Godsend.

You’ll suck that right up, you’ll feel stronger, and have better
subsequent workouts. You should be training hard enough to be able to lose the fat…it’s not all about the carbs.

I would go 1:1 ratio of carbs:protein…around 30:30 of a
combination of malto/glucose/sucrose or any high GI ingredients with a whey isolate and/or hydrosylate.
CB: Does post-workout nutrition change for interval training?

CM:
I believe it does, because while you’re exercising at a
high-intensity, the amount of glycogen depletion and protein
degradation that’s going on is lower than with a longer duration,
intense weight workout.

It is still an important time for feeding (after exercise), but I
wouldn’t recommend the same high intake of carbs:protein as I would after a tough weight workout.

Like before, go with the 1:1 ratio of carbs:protein – that is, of
course, unless you were just out there doing intervals for an hour (but then you’d basically be superhuman).
CB: What are your thoughts on eating before bed?

CM:
This is a time I like a protein and fat meal, to help slow the
digestion of those nutrients during a time when it’s likely you
will be breaking down some muscle tissue.

I am “ok” with some carbs, but if you do eat them, focus on veggies or something similar and don’t sit down to a Thanksgiving meal and then immediately close your eyes.
CB: Everyone seems to know the general protein rule for gaining muscle (1g per pound bodyweight), but how much protein do we need when trying to lose fat?

CM:
This is suffice for losing fat as well. Maintaining this intake,
with a moderate fat intake as well, will help provide the necessary nutrients since you want to lose as much fat as possible, yet maintain as much lean body mass as possible.

You can’t get around the fact that weight loss does take some
reduction in calorie intake (or very high amount of calorie
expenditure), so focus your intake on lean proteins, healthy fats,
and always think fiber, not carbs.
CB: Give us one of your “secret” advanced fat loss nutrition tips…please!

CM:
Losing fat without the addition of intervals is like riding a bike
through sand – sure it will work, but your progress won’t be nearly as fast.

Replace all simple carbohydrates with their high-fiber
counterparts, and make sure you’re eating at least one vegetable each and every meal.
CB: What do you think of “calorie cycling” diets – where you drop your calories for a couple of days, then bump them up, etc. Is there any research to support this approach?

CM:
To my knowledge it’s all anecdotal.

Theoretically, it seems as if it may work; however, it would be
near impossible to design a well controlled study to test the
theory.

With that said, it’s hard to make specific recommendations because there’s nothing to base it off of.
CB: And let’s finish off with your thoughts on fish oil – dosage,
quality, etc.

CM:
They kick ass—general health, 2-4 g/day. Elevated TG I would go higher, increasing in a stepwise manner, up to 8g or so (not a
blanket statement, but individualized). Always speak with MD first since it does decrease clotting time…contraindicated if on blood thinning medications.

Preliminary research with weight loss shows it’s promising—2-3 studies to my knowledge. I do believe higher quality fish oils are important. Fish oil shouldn’t give you fishy burps or taste fishy at all.

Two favorites are Nordic Naturals and Carlson. Fish oils are
screened very well for mercury and other contaminants, particularly ones like NN and Carlson.


CB: Thanks Chris. This is great. I look forward to adding your nutrition knowledge to my Turbulence Training workouts…I guarantee that this combination will help everyone lose fat and gain muscle.

More nutrition interviews with Dr. Mohr are on the way.

If you have any other questions, just let me know.

Sincerely,

Craig Ballantyne

My Diet Secret

My Diet Secret

By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

I’m not a “low-carb guy” by any means, but I have found something that works wonders for fat loss. And it does involve cutting back on whole-grains.

Back in December, I substituted more fruits and vegetables for any whole-grains in my diet, and I was as lean as I’ve been in years with this approach. So if you’re trying to lose fat and look better than ever this summer, try this approach.

Here are some easy changes to make.

a) Instead of having toast for breakfast, have an apple.

b) Usually have a side of rice at lunch? Have 1 cup of broccoli.

c) Typically have a bowl of cereal at night? Have an orange and an ounce of pecans (or walnuts or almonds), instead.

Think I’m out to lunch?

Check this study …

(For science nerds like me, here’s the reference: Amer. J. Clin.
Nutr. 85: 1465-1477, 2007.)

Woman on a low-fat diet that ate more fruits and vegetables lost
more fat than another group of woman on only the low-fat diet.

After 1-year, the low-fat, fruits and vegetables group (LF-FV) lost more weight than another group of woman on the low-fat (LF) diet only.

Why?

The LF-FV group reported being less hungry, thanks to being able to eat more food than the LF group.

So you’ll eat fewer calories if you are filling up on fruits and
vegetables, while keeping un-necessary fat out of the diet.

And isn’t the summer a great time to implement this program? With watermelon, berries, apples, and cherries all in great abundance, you can satisfy your sweet tooth naturally, while burning fat with the Turbulence Training fat loss workouts at home.
