Motivation to a Healthy Lifestyle

Motivation to a Healthy Lifestyle

 

I didn’t really know how to start this article, or what layout I should use to get my words across in a way that actually works. Regulars to this site will already know that I DID NOT live  a healthy life through my youth, and unfortunately I took that on into my early thirties

It’s only then, that I found my motivation to a healthy lifestyle – I wanted to change for vain reasons to begin with, but all the reasoning took me to the same destination. I was a young father and I needed to change certain habits, and live a much healthier lifestyle.

So this article will be written in a much more laid back fashion than normal – kinda like I’m having a conversation with you in a pub, or a bar, over a few drinks (okay, okay – not exactly healthy I know…but we all need a drink now and again!).  🙂

I’ll be covering the angles I paid most attention to when I was desperately trying to lose weight and get back to a healthier style of life. These may work for some, yet not for others. Overall I’m hoping people can pick and choose what they want out of the article, and use what is useful to them.

 


Change to a Healthy Lifestyle – Why?


Change to a Healthy Lifestyle - Why?

 

So why did I initially want to change to a healthy lifestyle? What were the factors behind me finally waking up and facing the naked truth?

Well…

During my youth I was a pretty lucky guy. I come from a ‘tall’ and ‘slim’ family and I never really had to worry about girls etc – I was pretty popular.

This lucky lifestyle went on into my twenties, and eventually into my early thirties…then I noticed a slight change in the waistline of nearly every pair of jeans I had…something had changed.

Well it certainly had changed. All of a sudden the nights out drowning in tanks of beer and the shitty food I loved so much…had caught up with me. Even my face was starting to show signs of weight here and there.

At first I decided to ignore it all, but I was single (yet again) at the time.

Without warning – the boyish good looks were deserting me and I found it more and more difficult to ‘pull’ girls.

There was no sweeping this under the carpet – I had changed for the worse and it was 100% down to the unhealthy lifestyle I had led since the age of 13. There was nobody to blame but myself.

Simply put – if I didn’t want to ‘expand’ any further I need to wise the f##k up!

So it was all down to vanity at the end of the day, but that doesn’t matter – whatever wakes you up to a healthy lifestyle is fine…as long as it does manage to wake you up!

 


The Path to a Healthy Lifestyle is HARD Work!


The Path to a Healthy Lifestyle is HARD Work!

 

So how did I first go about this big change – what were the first ‘baby steps’ I took towards changing my life for the better, and getting healthier?

Well to me, it was pretty obvious that the first element I had to tackle was my diet – that should be first for 99.9% of you looking to take on a healthier route in life.

My diet was, and had been, shit.

There’s no way I can beat around the bush here – it had been atrociously shit for a couple of decades, and it had contributed largely to my change in appearance.

So I needed to eat in line with what I like(d) to call a ‘boring diet’. I actually managed to do this with little fuss, and I 100% believe that a large majority of you reading this will experience the same ease of changing diet (if you put your mind to it).

But this was just the start, I had a ‘beer belly’ which had started to spread to other areas of my body…I needed to get rid of this asap.

So now comes the hard part…

I knew I had to take on some form of exercise but I hadn’t really exercised in years – a youth of alcohol, bad food and social drug taking will do that to you!

Anyway, I’m a musician by trade, so I figured that I needed to workout to music. Only one problem though – I couldn’t afford a gym membership.

So I opted to go running every morning, and listen to music on my Mp3 player – it worked…but man was it HARD, HARD WORK!

I ached liked I’d never ached before for the first month…and I had to get up and run on aching limbs the following day(s). It was a complete nightmare to begin with, but the music helped me through (and still does to this day).

 


Mental Toughness


I felt at this point in the article, it is important to point out that this was not a smooth ride for me. When we first decide to change our lifestyle for the better we are ALL going to lack what is referred to as metal toughness.

At times I had to force myself out of the door to go for a run in the mornings. It didn’t even matter if it was blowing a gale, pissing down with rain or even snowing – I’d drag my sorry ass through the door…into the car…and drive to my special rural running route.

Ignore what 99.9% of these so-called fitness gurus say – we ARE NOT born with mental toughness when it comes to taking on ANY form of lifestyle change. You have to develop this kind of toughness, and it doesn’t necessarily come easily (to most).

I’m not going to sit here and bang on about how I started to run, then my whole world fell into place, and it’s been sweetness and light ever since!

When I first started out with this it was not easy…and I nearly gave it all in after three weeks of exhaustion and aching limbs.

Mental Toughness

 


Motivation to a Healthy Lifestyle


The main point behind this article was to let everyone that’s new to this, know that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel…and most of us fall at the first hurdle.

I’m NOT a professional motivator…and I’m not even that much of a positive personality.

I just managed to change my lifestyle by persisting with what I started with, regardless of how shitty I felt at the time.

At the end of the day we all design our own motivation…when we hit that initial brick wall and realise things are going to get VERY tough.

Please don’t waste your time listening to these idiots on YouTube, or any other social platform, that preach how easy it is once you’ve got your mind on it etc…

This doesn’t happen in the real world of health and fitness.

If it was easy EVERYONE would be doing it and the planet wouldn’t have a problem with obesity and the diseases linked to it.

If you have recently started out on a healthier lifestyle we would love to hear from you – please leave your story in the comment section below!

 

Healthy Super Bowl Party Snacks

Healthy Super Bowl Party Snacks

 

So it’s Super Bowl Sunday…and the boys are on their way round to take in the beer, commercials, and most importantly, snacks. Imagine what their reaction would be to a layout of healthy Super Bowl party snacks?

Not that impressed at a guess!

But please don’t worry – we are not going all out here and banishing the wings and chilli, this is supposed to be a fun day after all. In this article we will be providing a few ‘healthy’ suggestions for your day of football…and we’re DEFINITELY NOT trying to turn anyone vegan! 🙂

Here are four of my own personal favourites for that big sporting occasion…

 


Snack One: Herb Marinated Chicken Skewers With Harissa


Snack One: Herb Marinated Chicken Skewers With Harissa

Come on – easy-to-assemble chicken skewers…what football fan would turn his/her nose up at these?

After all – football does mean MEAT! 🙂

Simply garnish with rosemary, thyme, oregano, and cumin. Round it all up with a super-spicy harissa sauce. How do we make this sauce?

Simple:

  • Roasted red peppers
  • Chilli
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice
  • And any other spices you feel will take the roof off your mate’s mouth!

 


Snack Two: Crispy Chickpea Bites


Snack Two: Crispy Chickpea Bites

I actually first tried these little taste-blasters during an F.A. Cup final (soccer/football), but they worked for one big sporting event…so I figured they would definitely work for yet another!

Now, it’s important to point out that this snack ONLY works if you manage to get the chickpeas to that real crispy point – anything less is a complete disaster (in my book anyway!). Check out the process below…

  1. Pre-heat a rimmed baking sheet in an oven at 450°F. Pre-heating the baking sheet ensures the chickpeas crisp as soon as they hit the hot pan.
  2. Use a 15.5 oz. can of chickpeas – open, empty/drain and then rinse. You need to make sure that the peas are as dry as possible because any moisture on their outside will cause them to steam when cooking.
  3. When they are as dry as possible, toss the chickpeas with 1 tablespoon olive oil and ¼ teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper. Bring the baking sheet out of the oven, fill it with the peas (make sure they are spread out) and then place back in the oven. Cook for about 25 minutes, and make sure you shake the pan holding the baking sheet halfway through.

Snack Three: Popcorn & Marshmallow Treats


Snack Three: Popcorn & Marshmallow Treats

So we’ve done two savory options – time for something a little bit sweet (like me!)  🙂

Popcorn & Marshmallow bars are simple and perfect for your big day of football. All you need to get started is:

  • Two tablespoons of unsalted butter, plus more for the dish
  • Half a cup of popcorn kernels or one 3.5-ounce package plain microwave popcorn
  • One 10-ounce bag of marshmallows

Simply butter up a baking dish, and then prepare (or pop) the popcorn (directions for this differ – check the packaging).

Grab a saucepan, throw in the butter and the marshmallows and gently heat over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes (make sure you stir as you heat).

Fold in the popcorn until coated then press into the prepared dish. Leave to stand for about quarter of an hour then cut up into separate bars (you’ll manage to get about 20 to 24 bars out of it!).

 


Snack Four: Veggie Buffalo ‘Meatballs’ (With an Awesome Blue Cheese Dip)


Snack Four: Veggie Buffalo 'Meatballs' (With an Awesome Blue Cheese Dip)

Okay – we didn’t want to leave the vegetarians out of the picture, so here we go…

Move aside hot wings, these spicy “meatballs” combine white beans and mushrooms to make a surprisingly tasty veggie snack. Go on – give the meat a day off!

Okay, this one’s not exactly as simple as the three options we’ve covered above, but it is worth it (if you’ve got the time and the talent!). You’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 celery stalk, coarsely chopped
  • 1 (15-ounce) can white beans, rinsed, drained
  • 4 ounces button mushrooms
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup hot pepper sauce, preferably Frank’s
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives, divided

So how do we put all this together?

Set up a rack on the middle shelf of your oven and set to preheat at about 400°F, and cover a rimmed baking sheet with oil.

Mash up the garlic, celery, beans, and mushrooms and pulses in a food processor. Transfer the food processor mix into a large bowl and add egg, panko, and 3/4 tsp. salt – mix it all together.

From here you can begin to roll up ‘meatballs’ by simply using your hands, then place them on the prepared baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for about half an hour – make sure they are nice and firm (and don’t forget to turn them halfway through the cooking process!).

When the balls are baking, cook butter, hot sauce, and maple syrup in a saucepan until the butter is melted down. Stir well until the  mixture is nice and smooth and set to one side.

Whisk sour cream, buttermilk, blue cheese, pepper, 1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. chives, and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. Top with remaining 1 tsp. chives.

When the ‘meatballs’ are ready, transfer them into a suitable bowl and cover with the hot sauce mixture you prepared. Serve with the dip.

So there we have it – four awesome and healthy snacks for your Super Bowl celebration!

The majority of people who begin diet plans and weight loss programs are simply unable to achieve their desired goal due to one reason – they want to see results…and they want to see them FAST!

This means that more often than not, people give up before they see the results they want.

Diets that are set up to decrease your weight by a couple of pounds every week are all good and well – but most people need to see more drastic results in the same time scale (it’s human nature!).

Enter The 3 Week Diet – A plan that not only teaches you what to do for 21 days to lose the weight, but also tells you what to do following the 21 days of the diet so that you can maintain your new slim build.

In this 3 Week Diet review I will discuss how well it works, the features it offers, some minor drawbacks with it, and where to get the best deal when you buy it online.

By the end of this review, you should have a good idea as to whether The 3 Week Diet is the right choice of health and weight loss option for you.

 


The Best Way to Lose Weight in 3 Weeks


The Best Way to Lose Weight in 3 Weeks

 

So how does The 3 Week Diet system work?

As you can see from the image above – this system is made up of four manuals, each working on a specific aspect of the regime that is required in order achieve the proposed results.

The first manual is a basic explanation and introduction to the diet/system. It tells you how the process is going to work for you and discusses the science behind the diet. It also delves into the information regarding nutrition and other background necessities.

The second manual goes into all the details surrounding the diet. Here the information will help you calculate your body fat and then provide you with directions specially tailored to your body type.

The third manual then concentrates on a workout program that you can use to increase the effects of the overall diet system. Each workout will last no more than 20 minutes and needs to be completed at least 3 times a week.

The fourth manual provides critical diet information on the correct mindset – probably the most important factor involved in a successful weight loss program.

It is jam-packed full of tips and guidance to help you to stay motivated and focused on your weight loss goal.

 


The Man Behind The System – Brian Flatt


 

The Man Behind The System - Brian Flatt

 

Brian Flatt, the guy who put together The 3 Week Diet, has been a prominent figure in the diet and fitness industry since 1999. He is a certified personal trainer and a certified sports nutritionist.

His career started in Southern California where he became a successful and well known personal trainer. He then moved on to become a weight loss coach and nutritionist. He now works mainly at his own personal training facility named R.E.V. Fitness.

He developed The 3 Week Diet plan over a several year period – using the techniques he had seen the most success with his clients.

 


Fastest Way to Lose Weight in 3 Weeks


What Will You Gain From This Diet System?

The system claims that you CAN lose up to 23 pounds in the 21 day period of the diet – is this really possible?

Well yes, it certainly is…but it does depend upon the individual taking the challenge on!

You can lose 23 pounds…but you may well lose less than that though; maybe 12 pounds, maybe 6 pounds. The key thing to take away here is that if you follow the system – you WILL lose an amount of weight. But again, you do have to stick to the program if you really want to see results. 

 

Fastest Way to Lose Weight in 3 Weeks

 

As well as losing weight, The 3 Week Diet will also give you the ingredients for the correct mindset for weight loss. The motivational guide really is just that: motivational…

The main reason for diets failing is the individuals involved not having the correct mindset. This system does an excellent job of giving you a positive mindset and even manages to get you excited about the upcoming weight loss journey.

Another overlooked benefit of the system is how it will make you feel – you will feel pretty awesome!

You may not lose the total 23 pounds, but you will lose some weight, and for once you will experience a healthy lifestyle. Nourishing your body with the right foods and being active always make you feel better, leading to more energy and a positive outlook on life.

 


The Good & The Bad


THE PROS:

  • The diet system offers you the possibility of seeing drastic weight loss within a matter of weeks
  • You will learn and experience health benefits that extend beyond weight loss
  • The motivation side of the diet is pretty much second to none – which is a HUGE help in creating the right mindset for successful weight loss
  • The system is affordable when compared to other top weight loss options out there
  • I personally found the information and the education extremely easy to follow, with a step-by-step format
  • The whole package comes with a handy money back guarantee. If you don’t get the results you are looking for – you can simply claim a refund on the product!

THE CONS:

  • This diet plan is not meant for people with certain health issues, Diabetes and high blood pressure in particular. Always check with your doctor if you have any worries about taking on a weight loss program
  • Throughout the education, I didn’t come across any REAL solid proof of the type of scientific information the diet was based on. The ‘science’ Brian Flatt offers has to be taken on face value (we basically have to take his word for it!).

 


Conclusion


For the low price ($47) and the 60 days money back guarantee this really is a no-brainer. If you are willing to put in the work and follow the advice Brian Flatt has put together for you, I am almost 100% positive you’ll be happy with the results you get.

Overall, the 3 Week Diet program appears to be a revolutionary weight loss program in a timely fashion. If you are looking hard for a program to help you lose weight quickly and keep it off, then I would absolutely recommend the 3 Week Diet to you. Remember though, the significance of your results ultimately comes down to how badly you want to lose the weight!

With the help of Brian’s education you will be able to totally transform your body shape and lose weight quickly and easily. This is one of the most effective programs out there and it will offer you results very fast…

Natural Ways to Look Younger Than Your Age

Natural Ways to Look Younger Than Your Age

 

Well – we all have to go through it…yet some handle it a lot better than others…

Growing old.

Do you remember that moment where you caught a quick glimpse of yourself and realised…I’m looking old?

It ain’t the best of feelings, is it?

It can show it’s (unwelcome) face through a number of avenues – maybe you caught a glimpse of a double chin, a couple of wrinkles on the forehead that seemed to come from nowhere…maybe that beer belly has finally developed a mind of it’s own?

At some point in time…we all realise that our youth is now firmly behind us.

In this article we will be taking a look at a few natural ways to look younger than your age that are provided in a guide named Old School New Body. This guide is essentially targeting more seasoned adults – particularly ages 40 and above.

Old School New Body is a effective health and fitness guide that has been put together by a couple who are now in their 50’s – Steve and Becky Holman. It takes the reader through a safe process of getting their body into shape while at the same time, reversing their ageing process.

The product itself is made up of step-by-step guides that will not only help you reduce fat content in your body substantially, but will also help you look a whole lot younger than you did before.

In this Old School New Body review I will discuss how well it works, the features it offers, some minor drawbacks with it, and where to get the best deal when you buy it online.

By the end of this review, you should have a good idea as to whether the Old School New Body system is the right choice of health and weight loss option for you.

 


Tips to Look Younger Than Your Age


Tips to Look Younger Than Your Age

 

Okay, first things first…

Who are the authors of this product and why should we spend our time listening to them?

Well, Steve Holman has been the chief editor at Iron Man, a leading fitness magazine in the US for 25 years. He has also published over 20 books on health and fitness and is regarded as an expert in muscle development and fat burning techniques.

His wife, Becky Holman, is actually one of the most famous success stories of the method Steve uses within the Old School New Body product. She got fed up with her body shape in her mid 40’s and decided to take on her husband’s methods and change her lifestyle…

The girl nailed it!!!

 


What is Steve’s Method?


The Old School New Body System

 

Okay, Steve’s program core functionality is based on the F4X Protocol.

What is the F4X Protocol? (I hear you ask)

Well, this is a specialised health and fitness protocol that was created by over 35 legendary fitness trainers, and works for both men and women. The protocol is divided into three main categories to suit the weight loss and muscle development needs of varying individuals.

Here are the three main categories:

  • The F4X Lean: This part of the system has been put together for people who are quite out of shape, and are maybe lacking in gym experience. The training part of this section is made up of 4 exercises that take about 30 minutes to complete (you are advised to carry out these sessions three times a week). You can use this workout indefinitely.
  • The F4X Shape: If you want to up the intensity, and have a lot more time on your hands – this is the perfect workout section for you! The workouts themselves need to be completed at least three times a week and each session lasts an hour. 
  • The F4X Building Stage: This is the most intense choice aimed at people who are super-serious about buffing up their body (bodybuilders), and are experienced in gym sessions. Workouts are still able to be completed in less than a hour but it is done 4 times a week.

 


The Good & The Bad


 

THE PROS: 

 

  • The workout plans are extremely quick and efficient. The most popular choices, Lean & Shape, only take 30 and 45 minutes to complete.
  • You can get and keep some good results using just 4 exercises, indefinitely!
  • The workouts are actually good for people of all ages – not just the older generation. They are extremely kind to your joints as well (no pain!).
  • The product contains an excellent nutrition plan which is well laid out and should work for everyone.
  • The system comes with a 100% money back guarantee.
  • It’s a proven anti-ageing fitness program which gives you instant results.

 

THE CONS:

 

  • The program is great at giving instant results, but if you want long lasting results you are going to have to show a bit of commitment.
  • There are ‘interviews’ included with the product…but these are a little long winded and pointless (in my humble opinion).

 


Our Final Take on The Old School New Body System


Well, first of all, it’s important to point out that F4X Workout system in Old School New Body is not meant to be a weight loss ‘magic bullet’. Instead, it is scientifically formulated by Holman to slow down the ageing process and get you a fit and healthy figure.

You are going to have to remain committed to the workouts taught and remain motivated throughout the course of the program (which is easier said than done in most cases!).

But…For the low price ($20) and the 60 days money back guarantee this really is a no-brainer. If you are willing to put in the work and follow the advice Steve Holman has put together for you, I am almost 100% positive you’ll be happy with the results you get.

With the help of Steve’s advice you will be able to totally transform your body shape and lose weight quickly and easily. This is one of the most effective programs out there and it will offer you results very fast…

 

 

We hope you enjoyed our article on natural ways to look younger than your age, and the Old School New Body system. If you have any questions about the product or want to leave your own personal review, please leave a comment in the section below.

Mike Geary’s eBook exposes a large amount of the foods you always thought were good for losing weight, but are actually contradicting your weight loss goals. It provides you with the true principals of fat loss and teaches you a host of new tips and tricks that you can implement into your current diet (if you are already on one!).

In this Fat Burning Kitchen review I will discuss how well it works, the features it offers, some minor drawbacks with it, and where to get the best deal when you buy it online.

By the end of this review, you should have a good idea as to whether the Fat Burning Kitchen system is the right choice of weight loss option for you.

 


Mike Geary – Changing Your Eating Habits


So who is this Mike Geary dude, and why should you be listening to the information he’s put out there?

Well, he’s actually been in the health and fitness industry now for just over two decades. He’s a renowned certified personal trainer, nutrition adviser, and he’s released numerous books on fitness.

He’s also a regular writer for popular magazines Oxygen and Muscle & Fitness.

Good Eating Habits to Lose Weight


So, what’s inside the box?

This extremely popular eBook has been put together to provide its readers with a proper step by step guide on changing eating habits to lose weight.

It lets the reader know about the most ‘dangerous’ foods in their current diet, then suggests a selection of options to replace these foods with. These replacement food options usually consist of foods with high fat burning potential, along with a variety of healthy fruits and vegetables.

Readers are also taught how to evaluate numerous foods on a nutritional level, so there is no confusion when it comes to so–called ‘healthy choices’ being dangerous to your diet.

The book also goes one step further in educating the reader in the newly discovered scientific facts behind the reasons why these specific ‘bad choices’ ruin diets.

On a personal level, I was really shocked by the chapter that covered the consumption of whole wheat. Did you know that whole wheat is linked to Alzheimer’s, cancer, and various types of diabetes?

The book also covers actionable steps to slim down and lose weight permanently, and efficiently. You will be taught how to activate your body’s own personal fat eradicating hormones, increase your metabolism, and even repair your digestive system.

 


The Fat Burning Kitchen – A Two Phase System


The Fat Burning Kitchen eBook is 123 pages long, and to make things simple, it is split up into two easy to follow phases.

Phase One concentrates on educating you about harmful ‘healthy options’ out there and why they are bad for you (this was the most shocking part of the book for me!).

Let’s take a closer look at the chapters involved in this first phase of the book…

 

1. Foods Made with Refined Flour and Corn Products

2. Food & Drinks Containing High Fructose Corn Syrup

3. Margarine, Vegetable Oils, Trans Fats, Crisco

4. Artificial Sweeteners – Splenda, NutraSweet, Saccharin

5. Commercial Pasteurized Dairy

6. Commercially Raised Meats; Farm-Raised Fish

7. Soy milk, Tofu, TVP

8. Sports/Energy Drinks

9. Energy Bars

10. Processed Foods, Weight-loss Meals, Diet Snacks, and Diet Desserts

The second phase of The Fat Burning Kitchen eBook concentrates on the correct foods for health and weight loss – the foods you should be using to replace the crappy options highlighted in Phase One!!!

These foods are the best choice for making your body as fit and healthy as possible, while at the same time, enabling you to lose as much weight as possible.

Let’s take a look at the chapters involved in the second phase of The Fat Burning Kitchen…

 

11. High Quality – Protein-Grass Fed Beef or Bison, Wild-Caught Fish, Free-Range Chicken, Whole (Free-Range) Eggs

12. Raw Dairy Milk and Cheese

13. Grass-Fed Dairy Butter, Coconut Oil, Lard

14. Nuts-Almonds, Pecans, Walnuts, Pistachios, Brazil Nuts, Cashews, Macadamia Nuts

15. Avocados

16. Organic Berries

17. Organic Dark Green Leafy Vegetables

18. Healthy Sweeteners: Real Maple Syrup, Raw Honey, Stevia

19. Healthy Real Food Energy Bars

20. Dark Chocolate

21. Herb Teas

22. Items to Keep in Your Kitchen

23. The Transformation Has Begun

 


The Good & The Bad


THE PROS:

 

  • A pretty easy read. I’ve lost track of the amount of times I’ve opened a health and fitness book only to be smothered in a sea of jargon almost instantly. This eBook is penned in a very easy to understand manner.
  • This eBook is written by someone (Mike Geary) who actually practices what they preach and are literally well known for doing so.
  • The book goes to great pains to make sure it prepares you for those ‘down days’ and to help you control your hunger cravings. Diets and health systems are not easy, and we’re only human at the end of the day. We ALL have moments of weakness from time to time!
  • The book doesn’t just concentrate on general weight loss, it also offers numerous tips for overall health improvements.
  • Mike Geary has also included a set of training exercises in the book. Along with healthy eating tips, readers are provided with various fat burning exercises as well.
  • If you’re anything like me, you hate being confronted with a sea of black text to learn from! Thankfully, Geary has opted to include a wide selection of video tutorials that further dive into nutrition.

A couple of months ago I was asked a question in the comment section of a popular article on this site regarding the best spice for weight loss. I replied to the visitor with links to the various articles we have published that covered the subject, but she was wanting more advice on a possible product linked to the subject.

This got me interested, very interested.

After a few days of research I stumbled upon a weight loss system named The Flat Belly Fix that claimed to contain a ‘ancient spice’ that manages to convert bad fat into good fat that actually burns calories.

It’s a system that is put together, and owned by a guy named Todd Lamb, which also claims to offer the following weight loss benefits:

  • Rapid weight loss without side effects
  • Transform your metabolism from sugar burner to fat burner
  • Improve your sex life
  • Improve your hair and skin health
  • Boost your thyroid so you can burn fat faster

It’s a system that is mainly geared towards getting rid of that stubborn stomach fat…which is usually the hardest weight to get rid of when you decide to slim down.

In fact, the program claims that it will help you lose your lower stubborn belly fat in just 21 days!

In this Flat Belly Fix System review I will discuss how well it works, the features it offers, some minor drawbacks with it, and where to get the best deal when you buy it online.

By the end of this review, you should have a good idea as to whether the system is the right choice of weight loss option for you.

 


What is The 21 Day Flat Belly Fix?


The system itself is presented in a downloadable eBook format which comes with entrance to impressive weekly video coaching sessions.

It is one of the few diet and weight loss programs out there at the moment that claims to have an unprecedented 100% rate of success. I’m guessing this figure does not include the individuals who gave up on the diet after a few days of hard work, just the people who stuck to the program properly.

The Flat Belly Fix system insists that it provides it’s members with a powerful secret in weight loss that is quite simple, easy to implement and affordable to everyone. 

What is The 21 Day Flat Belly Fix?

 


Who is Todd Lamb?


So who is this Todd Lamb character, and why is he involved in the weight loss niche?

Well, Todd Lamb is an ex SWAT member that has actually released numerous successful health and fitness products in the past. He has also penned several successful weight loss books.

He decided to create The Flat Belly Fix system after witnessing the depression his wife, a police officer, suffered from after a car accident…which resulted in her putting on a great deal of weight.

The tips and tricks he offers in the system were first stumbled upon when he was devising a system to help his wife get back to her ideal weight.

 


How Does The Flat Belly Fix Work?


Okay, I should start by pointing out that this ‘system’ is slightly different than most modern day weight loss programs, in that it doesn’t really offer a comprehensive program on diet or step by step system.

It’s actually a collection of tricks, tips and strategies that will unable you to lose weight effectively in a short space of time. One of these strategies is based on effective spices and herbs for weight loss.

The program itself has been able to cite a large number of testimonials from customers who give positive reviews on it’s effectiveness. Most of these individuals claim to have lost half to one whole pound on average every day for three weeks.

The Flat Belly Fix aims to help it’s users lose between 10 to 25 pounds within it’s working period (21 days).

The two most interesting modules within the program start with the Slim Belly Sleep Detox program. This interesting technique teaches you a handful of easy routines to go through at bedtime, so that you can actually lose belly weight effectively when you sleep!

Also contained in the program is the special Estrogen Balancing Elixir recipe for women. Todd states that this recipe is the secret behind the success of the program.

I was especially taken by the simple yet effective series of 3 minute long routines that are designed specifically to target the ‘spare tyre’ area of the stomach fat. These short routines are designed to tighten and then tone your stomach as you lose weight.

 


The FULL Program (Including Bonuses)


The FULL Program (Including Bonuses)

 

THE MAIN 21 DAY SYSTEM

The 21 Day System is a great place to start this system if you’re interested in knowing everything there is to know about your health, nutrition, fitness and how this program caters to that.

We recommend going through this main part of the system first because it does a great job of teaching you how to maintain your ideal weight/shape AFTER the program has finished (after 21 days of use).

They do a great job of teaching the member about nutrition and human anatomy, eating schedules, triglycerides, proportions, insulin, and a lot more.

This information is EXTREMELY important as a high percentage of dieters often slip back into bad habits after they have seen success with this sort of system.

 

THE 7 MINUTE FLAT BELLY PROTOCOL

This protocol is the section of the program that contains all of the important exercises, from system tension to isometric holds, fiber activation and more. This setup gives you a different exercise protocol for every day of the week.

It’s important to point out here that you DON’T have to stick to each exercise on each set day of the week. If you dislike one exercise, you can replace it with another exercise you prefer, as long as you are doing one protocol a day.

You are not left in the dark with the protocols, as each one comes with photographs/images to show you how to perform the exercise properly.

Remember: These exercises only take 7 minutes to complete each day, but don’t be lulled into a false sense of security….they do work…and you WILL feel the burn!

 

THE SMOOTHIE RECIPE GUIDE

This section of The Flat Belly Fix provides you with detailed instructions on how to get proper nutrition into your body through simple and tasty smoothies.

Chocolate and avocado, banana nut, chocolate almond…the list goes on and on…

It’s important to point out that most of these ingredients used are taught to you in the first guide of this system (The 21 Day System).

 


Our Final Take On The Flat Belly Fix


For the low price ($37) and the 60 days money back guarantee this really is a no-brainer. It is an effective and useful method that will help you beat that unwanted stomach bulge.

When I was reviewing the system I was more than impressed by the effort that had gone into it’s construction. The depth and scope of the information on offer is excellent and it is backed up by an impressive writing style.

It is incredibly easy to follow through, and you only need 7 minutes a day to complete the exercise regime and a couple more to make the smoothies.

I should point out that these 7 minute exercises are hard work at first, and the first few days you will certainly feel the ‘burn’ before you get used to them.

But remember: it’s that same burn that slices through your stomach fat, giving you the results you crave.

If you’re still concerned as to whether this exercise system is for you (who doesn’t have 7 minutes a day?) or are not sure you’ll like the smoothies (trust me, you will), there is a 60 Day Money Back Guarantee that you can take advantage of.

So, activate it today and discover if this is a system that you’ll be using to finally achieve your weight loss and fitness goals…

Men’s Health Information

Men's Health Information

Since my early thirties, it’s safe to say that I’ve grown up somewhat when it comes to being aware of my own health. I started to get to grips with the subject when I realised that the beer was no longer disappearing in a urinal…but rather gathering around my midsection.

To cut a long story short – I started to change my diet and I began running every day…

Healthy living and cardio!

So, you’re starting to see the picture behind the ‘why I started this site’ – I learned a ton of new information…and I figured others around the same age as me would be searching for the same sort of answers.

This post will be made up of graphical information I gathered last week on the subject of men’s health. I was in the process of looking for a new topic to cover on this site, and during my search I uncovered a few pretty awesome infographics that I’d love to share with you.

Men’s Health Information – Take The Plunge!


Men's Health Information - Take The Plunge!

I thought I should end this post by pointing out that I REALLY know how hard it is for 99.9% of us to change our habits and attempt to lead a healthier life – more often than not it’s down to reasons we have little control over.

Many of us lead extremely busy lives these days – careers tend to take over no matter how trivial the job.

But, if you don’t start somewhere…you won’t start at all.

When I started my cardio regime I was just setting out working online full time – I was my own boss and I had very little money.

I quite literally forced myself to get out and run every morning, no matter what the weather, and I slowly added on distance every day.

I’m afraid I really can’t help you with the nutrition side of things – that’s a mindset you have to create yourself and stick to! 🙂

What are the Health Benefits of Curcumin?

What are the Health Benefits of Curcumin?

I recently got a little ‘caught up’ in an article I was reading on a train journey to London that covered the rise of turmeric in certain health circles. This particular article was concentrating on the spice being added to certain skin care serums (which was a new one on me!).

At the root of the multitude of turmeric benefits is curcumin – a chemical that contains high amounts of special anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants.

So what are the health benefits of curcumin?

How does it manage to turn turmeric into a ‘miracle spice’?

Let’s take a closer look…

The Fat Diminisher System is the complete game changer for men and women when it comes to losing weight – Find out more about this revolutionary product HERE

 


More About Curcumin…


Curcumin is a chemical or curcuminoid that is found inside a selection of plants, it has a vibrant yellowish colour.

It’s primarily found in turmeric, which is a strong medicinal spice that is from the same family as ginger. More often than not, you find turmeric in powder format which is used to give certain foods a good boost in their flavour (it’s a popular spice to add to curry dishes).

 


BIO CURCUMIN BENEFITS


It Can Tackle Inflammation


It Can Tackle Inflammation

Curcumin is known to have the ability of blocking the activity of several enzymes in the body that are well known for causing inflammation situations.

A recent study went as far as saying that aspirin and ibuprofen were nowhere near as effective as curcumin when it came to dulling down inflammation. Therefore, curcumin can be great for improving the symptoms of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and asthma.

 


Great For Skin Health


Great For Skin Health

We covered the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of curcumin above, and it’s these positive properties that makes it a great ingredient for skin creams!

Many tests have concluded that curcumin can neutralize free radicals, which in turn prevent cell damage in the skin and improve the healing time of cuts.

Certain medical professionals now believe that curcumin can relieve the symptoms of psoriasis, scabies and radiation-induced dermatitis.

 


It Regulates Blood Sugar


It Regulates Blood

High blood sugar is serious stuff, and if it’s not handled in the right way, it can swiftly bring on diabetes symptoms which range from fatigue to unintentional weight loss. If this condition is allowed to persist, it can eventually lead to nerve damage and even loss of vision.

A recent study by the International Journal of Endocrinology Metabolism came to the conclusion that curcumin can reduce the symptoms of high blood pressure.

Apparently it can cut down the body’s glucose production, which in turn decreases inflammation, and increases the secretion of insulin from the pancreas.

 


Could it Fight Cancer?


Could it Fight Cancer?

Those of you that are regulars to this site, will already know that what you eat can have a powerful effect on cancer growth within the body.

Did you know that Curcumin is able to have an effect on enzymes which are directly linked to cancer development?

 


It Tackles The Formation of Blood Clots


It Tackles The Formation of Blood Clots

Stroke, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism are all linked to the formation of blood clots and platelet aggregation.

Research suggests that curcumin modifies eicosanoid biosynthesis – this is process that has been directly linked to numerous different forms of inflammation. It can also inhibit platelet aggregation, which again, leads to blood clot formation.

 


A Cholesterol Aid


A Cholesterol Aid

It’s well known that one of the main risk factors for heart disease is higher levels of cholesterol.

The University of Indonesia held a study back in 2008 that came to the conclusion that curcumin reduced levels of both total and bad LDL cholesterol.

 


WARNING – Side Effects


Okay, we’ve covered the health benefits of curcumin, but it’s not all good news…

Below is a list of possible side effects that are linked to regular taking of curcumin:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Low blood sugar
  • Increased risk of bleeding
  • Reduced fertility
  • Increased menstrual flow

A Simple Seaweed Soup Recipe

 

A Simple Seaweed Soup Recipe

For some unknown reason, we tend to get A LOT of interest with the seaweed-based articles we have published here in the past – so we thought we’d ride that wave a bit and offer you a simple seaweed soup recipe that we were introduced to about a month back.

Now, regulars to this site will already know that we only ever showcase newbie-friendly recipes here…because I’m not the greatest cook to walk this planet (Shock! Horror!).

Seaweed Soup Recipes


Why Seaweed?


So, why seaweed?

Why don’t we make a soup outta chicken and be done with it?

Why are we opting to go for this bogey-looking sea material?

Well, apart from the fact that seaweed is pretty darn tasty (when prepared the right way!), it also contains a number of benefits…

  • Seaweed is pretty awesome when it comes to your digestive health. Apparently it can strengthen gut mucus and slow down the digestion process, so the food releases it’s energy at at a much slower pace.
  • It is really low in calories and instead packed with nutrients. We are unable to farm the sea, so seaweed will see a sustained exposure to minerals.
  • Seaweed is known to have heavy-duty detox properties and is great at mopping up certain toxins within your system.
  • It makes a super-magical illness potion. Well, not exactly super-magic…but in Ireland and the Caribbean, seaweed-based drinks are consumed when one is under the weather, and needing a natural ‘pick me up’!

Okay, I could go on and on here…but you kinda get the picture already…

Seaweed pretty much rocks from a health point of view.

Now let’s get back to creating that seaweed soup…

 


Simple Seaweed Soup Recipe


Ingredients For 4 Servings:

Before we start, I should point out that this recipe is set up for Korean-style (brown) seaweed soup. It’s a big thing in Asia as many women believe it is the perfect soup to eat after they have given birth (it’s regarded as a ‘birth food’).

Korean women believe that the seaweed helps them produce quality milk for their newborn babies.

Anyway…

Ingredients For 4 Servings:

  • 30g dried (brown) seaweed
  • 1 dessertspoon of sesame oil
  • 100g very thinly sliced fillet steak
  • Salt
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon very finely chopped garlic
  • 1 1/2 litres (2.5 pints) of cold water

Okay – so you’ve got all the ingredients in order…how do we cook up this bad boy?

Well, it takes no more than 10 minutes to prepare, and is ready in about 30 minutes (those of you that are good at maths will note that this is a 40 minute recipe!).

  1. Soak seaweed in water until it becomes nice and soft, then drain it off and cut up into pieces about 3cm long
  2. In a medium pot, heat sesame oil over medium heat. Add beef, pinch of salt and 1 teaspoon of soy sauce. Fry for one minute.
  3. Add seaweed, remaining soy sauce and stir-fry gently again for another minute.
  4. Pour in enough water to cover ingredients; bring to a boil.
  5. When it is boiling, add garlic and rest of water.
  6. Simmer for half and hour, then serve!
