  6. 6. Before We Get Started, Read This First!For hundreds of years, men and women have sought to improve their physicalappearance and health. In the last century, scientific study and experimentation revealedan amazing amount of information about the human body and how it reacts to variousforms of exercise and nutritional strategies. Even with these advancements, there existsa large amount of confusion regarding the best and most efficient way to lose weight andachieve a better body.Ask ten trainers at ten different gyms to give you a workout and nutrition plan and you’llget just as many different answers. Go to those same gyms and see that most membersdon’t improve one bit from week to week, month to month, and year to year. I, like hordesof others on this planet, was confused too.Much of this confusion is due to misinformation spread by outdated research, themisunderstanding of how to properly eat or exercise, or the latest fad diet or crazysupplement company trying to sell you their latest ‘magic bean’ fat loss pill or miraclepotion.So, I began a quest to find the answers that would yield the best fat burning and weightloss results in the shortest possible time. Answers that would reveal what a confusing,ineffective sham the diet industry really is.Finally, after years of trial and error, I realized the core truths that will let anyonemaximize their own genetic potential to burn fat, get a flat belly, and achieve lifelonghealth...all while making only small changes in what they eat and spending only minutesper week exercising. But I also learned the saddening reality that most people just didn’t
  7. 7. believe me when I told them. They thought it couldn’t be this simple. Some had evenheard a few of these methods themselves, but dismissed them because they weren’tpresented as ‘miracles’ the weight loss and fitness industry has been pushing on themfor years.Please understand that I am not claiming to have invented anything completelynew here. I’m not a celebrity nutritionist, or a useless diet ‘guru’.The techniques and principles I detail in this book are a collection of information andtechniques I and countless others have found to be the most effective and efficientmethods to achieving maximum weight loss, fitness and health...in minimum time.And the bottom line is: these techniques actually work! Not just for me or my wife or myfriends, but for pretty well everyone who has put them into practice correctly, evidencedprimarily by the glowing comments and testimonials I receive every week from thethousands of readers of this book worldwide. For some, the Flat Belly Bible has trulychanged their lives, and that is something I am extremely proud of.The information you’re about to read is presented in as simple a manner as possible.This was done so you can benefit and start implementing these powerful fat loss andhealth improvement strategies quickly. For some readers the concepts I discuss will belife changing, as they are simple, easy to follow and stick to.The Flat Belly Bible has been conceived out of a need to help people avoid the costly,complicated and frustrating pitfalls that the mainstream diet industry offers.This books aim is simple - to give honest, simple, straightforward advice that whenimplemented, will enable you to take control of your weight, burn the excess fat and get a
  8. 8. flat belly. You will also improve your overall health dramatically as a result.You won’t have to completely change your life and start living in a gym or only eatinglettuce or buy expensive needless “diet” pills, you won’t have to reduce your calorieintake to 500 a day or anything else ridiculous.But...you are going to have to change things a little - watch what you eat, do a littleexercise - the Flat Belly Bible is designed to be simple, and the principles contained inthis book are simple but effective.You don’t have to follow everything to the letter - even just changing your eating habitswill have significant benefits, as will just doing some basic exercise while you’re stilleating junk food.But I’d like you to try a bit of everything - when the four Flat Belly ‘Pillars of Wisdom’ areimplemented and used together - that is when you will see maximum weight loss and fatburning, and therefore fast results. For instance, shortly you’ll learn why the number oneway to burn fat 24 hours a day is to increase your metabolic rate through food andexercise.In addition, I want you to understand right now that these fat loss and fitness techniqueswork for both men and women, young and old.I’ve seen far too many women and older persons miss out on healthy and lean bodyquickly because they thought they were too old and would hurt themselves, or thatweight training is only for men. I’ll prove to you why nothing could be further from thetruth a little bit later in this book.Also, please do not make the mistake that you’ll get nothing out of the exercise routines
  9. 9. in this book if you don’t have access to a large commercial gym. You can do most of theexercises suggested in your own home with little to no equipment.If you don’t have any equipment at all, you can still perform the flat Belly Bible routineswith some bodyweight only exercises (I’ll explain more on how to do this later). So pleasedon’t make the mistake of thinking you can’t get anything out of the routines withoutequipment...because you can!Lastly, I would recommend that you undergo a full physical examination from your doctorbefore beginning any exercise or nutrition program. One of the main but often overlookedreasons for this is because illness of any type will greatly reduce the effectiveness ofyour body’s response to any fat loss or fitness method.When you’re sick, have hormonal imbalances, or are recovering from an illness, it’s notas though the body can forget about that and start burning fat maximally. Your body willmake it a priority to devote all its resources to fixing what ails you...burning more fat isnot the first thing on its list. So please, make sure you are in good health prior to startingwith the Flat Belly Bible.I ask that you’ll read what follows with an open mind and a thirst for unlocking yourphysical potential fast. If you combine an unparalleled desire and the right mindset withthe knowledge contained within this book, the results should literally astound you, andwill continue to do so for the rest of your life.To start off, we’re going to take a look at the state of things. The obesity epidemicthat is upon us, why we’re getting fatter, why we need to lose weight and gethealthier - and how we can succeed easily without spending fortunes on uselessdiet pills and ‘miracle’ fitness equipment.
  10. 10. NOW, GET READY TO CHANGE YOUR BODY...AND YOUR LIFE!Obesity EpidemicWhen someone is overweight, their weight exceeds the normal standards for people oftheir height and age. However, because everyone’s weight must include their bones,muscles, fat and water content, it is possible for someone to be overweight without beingobese. For example, a professional athlete or bodybuilder may well be overweight, butbecause the majority of the ‘excess’ weight that they are carrying is muscle tissue, theyare not obese. Nevertheless, in the majority of cases, being overweight does equate tocarrying too much body fat and often progresses to become clinical obesity.There are several ways of defining obesity, but the most common is by reference to whatis known as ‘Body Mass Index’ (BMI) which is a mathematical formula that generates anumerical BMI based on an individual’s weight in kilograms divided by their height inmeters squared. Hence, the mathematical formula for BMI is kg/m2.These figures can be converted into imperial measures (pounds and inches), butbecause the formula for doing so is somewhat complex, you should use this easy readycalculator to calculate your own ‘Body Mass Index’:So, now you have a BMI figure, what does it mean? From the same web site, you can
  11. 11. see the relationship between your clinical weight classification and the increased risk ofdeveloping weight related illnesses and disease:Is the problem really as bad as it appears?I would suspect that there are very few people who watch TV or read a newspaper thatare not already aware that the problem of obesity is exploding on an international scale.Consider the following map taken from the ‘Centers for Disease Prevention and Control’(CDC) website, detailing a 2011 study on obesity levels in the USA. • More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) are obese. • Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, are some of the leading causes of preventable death. • In 2008, medical costs associated with obesity were estimated at $147 billion; the
  12. 12. medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.Its pretty safe to assume that all these statistics have only gotten worse since they werepublished. Go back just 25 years and there was no state in the USA where morethan 14% of adults were obese. From the 2011 study, the picture is lookingconsiderably less encouraging:Now, there is not a single state where the rate of adult obesity is less than 15-20%, andthere are many who are already in the 30% to 35% adult obesity ‘band’.Could anybody need any more proof that obesity is tantamount to an epidemic?I’m not telling you this try to scare you, because if you are seriously overweight or obese,you already know that you need to do something sooner rather than later. However, justrealize that you are not alone in your current predicament, but that you are probablyunusual in seeking an answer for your problem. The time to act is now!
  13. 13. What Causes Body Fat?We eat more calories than our body needs in a day, so the excess gets stored as fat. Ourhuman bodies are designed in such a way that when in times it was harder to get food,our bodies could be prepared by having stored extra calories in times of plenty in theform of fat. Now, with the ease with which we get food, a lot of people tend to overeat,and this is a severe problem that causes a huge number of people to become overweightor obese.Genetics play a factor as well by setting basic parameters on the metabolic efficiency ofyour body. People who are overweight many times have very efficient metabolisms,meaning their body needs less calories per day than others to operate, and they storethe excess calories as fat. Also you have a greater risk of being obese if one of yourparents are and an even greater risk if both parents are.Your metabolic rate. Besides genetics, your metabolic rate depends on how active youare. It is said that every ten years past our mid-twenties we lose about 10% of ourmetabolic rate. This probably does not have to do completely with age, however, butinstead with how active we are.The more active we are, the more muscle mass we can retain, or even build, and in turnthe more fit we are because muscle tissue is metabolically active whereas fat is not. Onthe other hand, if we lead a basically sedentary life, we are much more likely to be ableto gain weight as we lose muscle mass.Eating patterns. People’s eating habits make a huge difference in determining theirweight. When foods high in fat or sugars are favored, this of course can cause much
  14. 14. weight gain. Also, how you serve the food, i.e. do you put the portions on everyone’splate or do you bring it all to the table and serve it the food family style where everyonecan take as much as they want? Portion size is one of the main reasons people eat toomuch. Also, how have you learned to eat? If you are a fast eater, you may not evenrealize the cues your stomach gives you that it is full.Larger portion sizes. Over time, larger portions of food have become the norm, especiallyat many restaurants. Weight has also gone up because of this.Exercise or the lack thereof. Exercise is essential to a healthy lifestyle and to maintaininga healthy weight. When you exercise, especially when you include strength training inyour workouts, you gain muscle mass and raise your metabolism and in turn the musclehelps to burn more fat. In turn, you will weigh less and you will look leaner and firmerbecause muscle takes up less space than fat. Plus, strength training helps reduce therisk of accidental injury, improves your bone density, helps with digestion and helps inlowering your blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels.As you can see, even if your genes make it easier to gain weight than other people, dietand exercise are the two main factors that affect your health and weight. Regularexercise is essential to getting to and maintaining a healthy weight – and so is what youeat, how you eat and how much you eat. • Learn portion control. This is usually a huge factor for most people, and they do not realize how much they are actually eating. A portion of food the size of your fist is generally all that should be eaten at one time, because that is the size of your stomach as well. • Eating several small meals a day, rather than two or three big ones, will help you to be able to eat less and also not be hungry in the early days of forming this habit. Another vitally important thing is to never skip breakfast, as this sets up your
  15. 15. metabolism for the day. If you don’t eat breakfast, your body will go into defense mode and store more fat because it will think you are starving. • Try slowing down your eating as well if you have the habit of eating fast. This way you can feel the signals from your stomach when you have had enough, before you stuff yourself full. When you have done that, you know for sure you have eaten too much. In reality, on a scale of 1-10 of fullness, we should feel right in the middle, around a 5, when we are done eating. It takes some practice, but you can learn this trick and you will feel so much better knowing you did not stuff yourself to the maximum capacity.Another thing to watch of course is your intake of fatty and sugary foods. We all neednutrients, including healthy fats, to keep us balanced, but eating a lot of junk food andsugary drinks will attribute greatly to us gaining more weight. Processed foods don’tgenerally have a lot of nutrients in them, or any at all, and they are high in salt, sugar,and unhealthy fats.In today’s busy lifestyles, we may not realize how often we are eating these foods. If youare one who is always ordering out for work, or going out to dinner as well, this is notgoing to keep you healthy because you do not have the control as to what is being put inyour food (except special ordering at a restaurant) and it is much harder to make sureyou are eating the right kinds of things and getting all of your nutrients. Going out to eatis fine every once in a while, but be sensible in what you are choosing, and you don’thave to clear your plate of the large servings you will most likely be given.Health Dangers of Being OverweightWeighing too much may increase your risk for developing many health problems. If youare overweight or obese, you may be at risk for:
  16. 16. • type 2 diabetes • coronary heart disease and stroke • metabolic syndrome • certain types of cancer • sleep apnea • osteoarthritis • gallbladder disease • fatty liver disease • pregnancy complicationsYou may be able to lower your health risks by losing weight, doing regular physicalactivity, and eating healthfully. The health warnings are stark. If you’re overweight, you’reat similar risk to a smoker of developing a life threatening or fatal illness or disease.Don’t delay any longer, you’ve taken the first step towards losing weight and improvingyour health simply by buying this book. Keep reading and get started today.What the Diet Industry Doesn’t Want You to KnowThere are several things that the weight loss industry is not telling you – nor do they wantyou to know.Their business is booming thanks to all the fads, gadgets and pills out there that they areselling to people desperate to lose weight. Unfortunately, the only thing in most casesthat is getting lighter is peoples’ wallets.There are literally hundreds of diet industry scams. From all natural pills that do nothingaside from rob your bank account, to ridiculous slimming waist bands, foot patches andstuff you sprinkle on your food (magic pixie dust?) the diet industry is always coming up
  17. 17. with new miracle fat loss ideas to sell to you.The simple fact is that all of these products have a couple of things in common - they’revery well-marketed, they’re expensive and they really don’t work. Most diet products arenothing short of a scam - you’ve probably seen all the ads for Acai berry, colon cleansers,green coffee bean and many others.Even the more mainstream diet books make ridiculous claims about how you’ll lose 50lbsin a week, just while you sit on the couch reading the book. Most of these things simplydo not work, and only a tiny percentage of people buying into one of them manage tolose the weight and an even tinier percentage actually keep it off.Some of These Industry Secrets Include:Most weight loss product ads deceive the buyer. A majority of the weight loss productsyou hear about on the radio and see on infomercials don’t even do what they claim to.Even so, consumers are lured into buying these products with promises like “Lose theweight and keep it off”, “Eat whatever you want” and “no diet or exercise required”.Basically, if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is.Just because they say it’s “scientifically proven” or “doctor-endorsed” doesn’t mean itworks. These claims are typical as well, but they never tell you anything about where thestudies were made or by who so that you can check out the validity for yourself.And what does it really mean anyway? Often these so-called health professionals have afinancial interest in the product, and probably did not review the scientific evidence. If itwas reviewed, they may not have even used acceptable review standards. Why wouldyou want to risk your health on such a thing?
  18. 18. • Just because the government allows a product to be on the market does not mean it is safe for consumers or that it does what it claims. There is a huge misconception that the government would not allow a product on the market if it could potentially be harmful to you. People tend to think that the government has to pre-approve them first, but many times that is not the case. • Products toted as ‘natural’ or ‘herbal’ are not guaranteed safe. People also assume that just because a product is made of natural ingredients means it must be safe as well. But until the FDA receives evidence that a product is harmful, the companies are free to put their products on the market. • Not everything you hear is true, and you shouldn’t believe it. There are plenty of products that claim to do things that they just do not, and you should steer away from products making high and lofty claims. • Don’t buy into the claims of fad diets, either. Anything that requires sudden and radical changes to your eating patterns is very difficult to sustain over time. They will send you into a quick cycle of weight loss which is always followed by a rebound period where you gain the weight back and then some in certain instances once you’re normal eating resumes. • Plus, the next time you try to take the weight off, it makes it all that much more difficult. There are no health benefits to these diets, and if any one of them worked, do you really think there would be the need for new ones?You also can not count on the money back guarantee. You have about as good of achance on getting your money back as having the product actually do what it claims to.There is also no quick fix or magic pill that will help you to finally lose weight. If theproduct is making such claims, you can just about guarantee that they won’t work.
  19. 19. Unfortunately at our expense, the weight-loss industry is booming with its mass-marketing of bogus ineffective, instant-results, fat-loss products. People pour tens ofmillions of dollars into this industry thinking they will get the results advertised. But truthbe told, there is no such thing as instant results nor do these diet fads truly work.Only one thing works in life and that is hard-work! But its not anywhere near as hard asyou think. Its a case of seeing through hype and forcing yourself to accept reality as it isand to then go forward with a positive attitude and make an effort.A simple diet and a bit of exercise can net you unbelievable results! Most people tend toquit when they dont see results right away but it takes time for results to happen asnothing is immediate.This is where willpower is required, to help you stay on track. If you can stay focused onyour goal to lose weight and get in shape, you will succeed.The Flat Belly Bible is laid out to help you achieve those goals. Simply keep youreyes on the prize, stay focused, maintain a positive attitude and watch the weightcome off! To Read More, Click Here Now!
