Weight Loss Roundup
A year ago on this blog, I was talking about vegan protein sources, vegetarian fitness, night time eating and how it applies to weight loss goals and changes in your diet to make it better.
Here are the posts from last year at this time:Vegetarian Fitness
Being a vegetarian requires a full understanding of the role nutrition plays in achieving your fitness goals.
There is a direct relationship between nutrition and physical performance in workouts or sports. Hard physical activity requires an increase in nutritionally dense calories and also due to sweating a higher fluid intake. Therefore you need to carefully plan what you eat and drink.Vegan nutrition

- guest post by Tom Venuto
Eat breakfast like a king, eat lunch like a prince and eat dinner like a pauper.
This maxim can be attributed to nutrition writer Adelle Davis, and since her passing in 1974, the advice to eat less at night to help with fat loss has lived on and continued to circulate in many different incarnations. This includes suggestions such as:
"Dont eat a lot before bedtime"
"Don't eat midnight snacks"
"Don't eat anything after 7pm"
"Don't eat any carbs at night"
"Don't eat any carbs after 3 pm"
and so on.

Hoodia, the appetite and thirst suppressant of the South African aborigines has been tested as a dietary aid for persons wanting to stay on a weight loss diet plan. The natural supplement has been proven to help individuals eat less in a natural and safe manner. However, like any diet aid, Hoodia suppressive qualities will only be truly beneficial if a healthy diet is also implemented.
While I don't outright suggest that Hoodia is required for weight loss, I get a lot of questions about appetite suppressants and if hoodia is safe or not. I did some digging (a lot of digging) and wrote my thoughts on hoodiaAbout the photo:
I interviewed Bill Pearl on the premier edition of my internet radio show back in 2003. Bill is a 5 time Mr Universe and trains every day at 4:00 am even into his seventies. Bill has been vegetarian for over 35 years and looks just fine if you ask me. The top 5 interviews from my radio show are available at Fat Loss Insider Secrets

5 Whole Food Soup and Stew Recipes
Gone are the days of dieting for weight loss, in is the smart way to get results – eat higher quality food full of nutrients, fiber, protein and carbohydrates. Cutting calories doesn’t necessarily cut it anymore. Instead of starving your body, feed your body to a healthy slenderness.
If you’re new to whole foods, some recipes would certainly help in getting your started.
Soups are great meals to prepare in the cold winter months and can be easily packaged to take to work with you for a healthy meal.
Here are 5 whole food soup recipes
you can create at home to provide essential nutrition for your weight loss program
Black Bean Soup - When it comes to three basic categories of nourishment - protein, fiber and anti-oxidant related substances - few foods have as solid a nutritional profile as black beans.
African Peanut Stew – Featuring Chickpeas (Garbonzo Beans). A prominent ingredient in Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and East Indian dishes such as minestrones, hummus, and falafel, whole Chickpeas have a mild yet hearty flavor and keep their unique round shape when cooked. In addition to being a good source of protein and calcium, Chickpeas are especially high in iron.
Barley And Lentil Soup - Lentils are a delicious and nutritious food — high in protein, minerals, and fiber — that can be easily used as a substitute for other staples such as meat, pasta, or potatoes in soups and stews. Unlike dried beans, they require no soaking and cook relatively quickly.
Pumpkin Butternut Squash Curry Soup - Butternut squash is a winter squash with a sweet nutty taste that can be steamed, roasted, pureed or mashed and used in any type of recipe. This Pumpkin Butternut Squash Soup is just right for the cold weather as the ginger gives it a bit of a kick.
Broccoli Lentil Soup With Roasted Pepper Coulis - The lentil is a brushy annual plant of the legume family, grown for its lens-shaped seeds. With 26% protein, lentil is the vegetable with the highest level of protein other than soybeans, and because of this it is a very important part of the diet in many parts of the world, and especially South Asia.
Technically, these are soup recipes and stew recipes, but I’m sure you’ll love them anyway.

Beginner Weight Training Program
I sent out an email to my subscribers asking for their opinion about what it is they wanted to learn more about.
It was overwhelmingly in favor of these top 6 items
1. Weight Loss Information
2. Weight Loss Tips
3. Fitness and Exercise Information
4. Exercise and Fitness Tips
5. Natural Health Information
6. Whole Food Recipes and Cooking Tips
Well, I’m happy to see those results because they’re all related. Natural health principle’s including whole foods, improving digestion and elimination, reducing stress and becoming more active in both weight bearing exercise as well as cardiovascular exercise all result in a healthy lean body.
Cleansing and Detoxification came in #7 on the list and will be a primary focus of my new book Fat Loss Fundamentals.
Of the 25 questions I asked, it’s #8 that is why I’m writing this post.
I’ve recently come across a great resource that I’d like to offer you for free.
There is no investment except for that of your time, which is required but I think you'll agree that anything valuable is worth your time and effort and than includes the body you want.
If it's a fit, lean, healthy body, then this is for you
When people first approach me and ask me for assistance in their weight or health and want to know what to do about it, I usually reply with a question:
"What do YOU think you need to do?"
Most people already know the answer.
It’s a change in lifestyle including beginning an exercise program and a change in eating habits from processed foods to whole foods.
In the survey I included a question asking about what sort of exercise and fitness
information my subscribers wanted.
I had no idea where they were at in their weight training program,so I asked.
I asked three specific questions ...
- Exercise programs and examples for beginners?
- Exercise programs and examples for intermediate?
- Exercise programs and examples for advanced?
The 8th most important thing they wanted to know about, of 25 questions asked was
Beginner Weight Training Exercise Program and ExamplesWhat if I told you that I could offer you a 7 day intro to a beginner weight training program, with no catches, that you can repeat at no cost and zero risk?
What if the 7 day course included pictures and videos of the 15 exercises, showing you how to perform them?What if the 7 day course included ready to print workout journals that you can use over and over again at no cost?
What if this zero cost 7 day intro came with a shopping list taking you by the hand and guiding you through the best proteins, carbohydrates, fruits, veggies and fats for you to stock your cupboards with?
If you had access to the exercise videos, the exercise logs, the shopping list listing all the fruits, veggies, fats and proteins, would you make use of it?
My friend Rich Tweten
is a personal trainer from Vancouver who
took his No Fat Lies 90 Day Rapid and Permanent Fat Loss Solution
program and paired it down to the very basics for this FREE 7 day introduction
so that you could take action and get started
You’ve heard me talking about the movie The Secret a lot.
Not only have I seen it numerous times, but I’ve worked personally with at least 2 of the teachers. I even ran a contest giving away 4 copies of the book "the Attractor Factor" by one of the teachers, Joe Vitale.
The secret to "The Secret" is taking action.
You put out your intention to the Universe, God, whatever you want to call it, then when presented with an opportunity, your only duty is to Jump, to take action!
Well, you asked for beginner weight training
information and now you’ve got the opportunity.
I just want to repeat it again, that there is "no charge
Rich has coached many clients including Kristen Daltan who starred in Stephen King’s "the dead zone" and played Jack Nicholson’s "girl" in the 2006 movie "The Departed" which won an oscar for Best Picture and writes a column for Fitness Experts, a fitness magazine distributed across Canada.
In short, he knows his stuff and is completely dedicated to his clients getting results.
Let me summarize what it is you’re getting in this beginner weight training program
- 15 videos showing the exercises and how to perform them
- Exercise Journals - Ready to print and use over and over
- Examples workouts
- The Ultimate shopping list
- Three 20 minute cardio burn workouts
That’s 7 days of workouts all at zero cost.
Wait, 3 days of weight training and 3 days of cardio burn workouts does not equal 7 days of workouts.
What’s up with that?
The 7th day is a secret. You’ll have to get the course to find out what happens on the 7th day, but let me say this:
If you’re subscribed to my blog, you’ll have heard that Jessie began a 6 day a week weight training and cardio program from scratch knowing nothing about exercise, food or the gym. In fact, she was afraid of the gym, but she busted through that fear because she knew she had to take action.
She took her 4 kids for a day trip to two local gyms and then bought a membership.
She’s dropping between 2 and 4 pounds a week steady, week in and week out and writing about her experience on my blog.
If Jessie can do this with 4 kids, what’s stopping you?
You’ve asked for this and now you’ve got your opportunity to take action
There is NOTHING stopping you.
It's all FREE.
If this is what you want, then this is time to take action on it and get started.

One of my favorite quotes is by Johan Von Goeth 1749 – 1832
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative (and creation). There is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can,.... begin it! Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.Take Action - Get The 90 Day No Fat Lies Intro Weight Training Program For Free
PS. a subscriber recently asked me a question about why I haven’t written my own book yet and about being able to trust the people I refer. I would not refer them if I didn’t know them, their integrity or their ability to put forth a product that they stand behind and that I know works. You’re trusting me and I’m not about to blow that trust by offering a shit product.
My passion is natural health and fitness. I love working out and I see it’s incredible importance in getting the body you truly desire. I'm not passionate about writing about it however, so that’s where Rich comes in. He’s passionate about it and I don’t have to re-invent the wheel. Get the 7 day primer . Take action
PPS: Rich’s 7 Day Beginner Workout Primer is almost exactly the same routine I began with myself after I lost 300 pounds, but I had to create my own journals rather than having them pre-made for me like Rich doesGet The Program Here

Can You Drink And Still Lose Fat?
Ask any fitness expert about the effect of alcohol on weight loss and you’ll quickly have them quip back to you that yes, if you drink alcohol you will gain fat
. A lot of men are proud of their beer belly, shaking them at football games, painting them with the letters of their favorite ball teams and flaunting them in the faces of many a spectator.
That said, the other side of the coin is true as well.
Many men are trying to lose their beer belly, have quit drinking and train hard with weights and include cardiovascular activities like walking, running, biking or swimming into their training program, resigning themselves to a life of sobriety in order to have their dream body.
The latest science seems to show that it’s not the case. You may just be able to drink in moderation and still achieve your dream body. The alcohol and weight loss question has been put to rest by Tom Venuto in this article Alcohol and Weight Loss
– Why Some People Can Drink Alcohol Without Getting Fat
. Tom lays out the science behind this study and includes 7 tips on how to drink while living a fitness lifestyle

I totally agree with the 5 to 6 small meals a day along with an increase in cardio and weight training as being the best way to burn fat. The idea is to increase metabolism through regular eating every 3 to 4 hours along with an increase in exercise.

The Best Thing About Weight Loss
I wrote an article about two years ago and it's time to bring attention to it again. Anthony had his diet pimped by me and he's about to get started. He's getting married in a few days and pimping his diet was my wedding gift to him. Anthony is starting at 405 pounds. His chosen cardio method is biking and he's from Florida. Anthony is calling his weight loss story
"Let My New Life Begin"
We're tracking the whole thing in the weight loss forum
under the Pimp My Diet
So here's a snippet from the article I wrote two years ago called "The Number One Best Thing About Burning Fat
There are a lot of other things people just don’t consider when entering into a fat loss program like Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle so I want to list a few things that I’ve been thinking about over the past few days in regards to this.
- Laundry - With doing all the extra cardio along with weight training, I’m finding that I have to wash clothes a lot more often. I only have a limited amount of assigned “workout” clothes and I am going through them faster than before so have to wash more often.
- Cooking - Preparing so much food takes time and if you don’t have a system, it may seem like you’re always cooking. I prepare enough food for a few days in advance by spending some time in the evening cooking a bunch of chicken and rice. If I know I’m going to be out all day the next day, I prepare my meals in advance so that I can just pack it into a cooler the next morning and I’m safely staying within my planned caloric needs for the day.
- Tupperware - I’m noticing that I have to have more Tupperware not only to store the prepared food, but to pack it along. Baggies too. Ziplock baggies of various sizes to hold my veggies and wraps
- Math - I hated math in high school and now I’m having to calculate my day’s food broken down into the six meals per day that I need. I have to calculate my post workout meal first and then plan the rest of the meals around what’s left for protein, carbs and fats. It’s well worth the effort though and now I have a system for that too. Once I’ve found the exact calories that I need for me right now, I’m simply creating a day’s meal plan and then keeping it in a binder. When that specific day rolls around again, I just bring out that day’s meal plan and go from there. There’s a lot to be said for eating the same thing over and over.
I vary it, but still based on the days’ plan. I have a few sets of these now because re-feed days are different. I have Low Carb days (LCD) and Very Low Carb Days (VLCD) and then re-feed days. Learn all about this and how it can maximize your fat loss success by getting Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle.
There are a lot of things that you have to be aware of when embarking on a journey such as this, so be prepared for the best.
and, a new quote I recently read in a book by Bijan entitled "Effortless Prosperity" is "Everything that CAN go right WILL go right". I love it

Natural Hormone Enhancement Carb Cycling Weight Loss Program
After 7 days
of eating nothing but protein and fat (zero carbs), I'm starting my first two days of my carb cycle.
I've followed Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle
for a few years now and I've wanted to try this Natural Hormonal Enhancement
program by Rob Faigin for about a year. Wanted to start it last year but due to my traveling, it was just impossible to begin.
The first 7 days on the NHE program require you to reset your system from sugar burner to fat burner. This is done by completely limiting carbs to less than 20g per day. I took the plunge and just did zero carbs. With the exception of some hidden carbs in say mustard and Franks Red Hot sauce, I think I got away with it. Franks Red Hot sauce says there is 0 carbs in a tablespoon, so I'm going with it.
For the past 7 days, I've eaten only egg whites, whole eggs, whey protein, Chicken, smokies, steak and Udo's Oil for good fats.
Now the carb cycling begins.
The idea is to have two cycles, one 4 day and one 3 day. During the cycles, I'm only eating protein and fat, and less that 60g of carbs. I'm going to see if I can get it as low as possible, say less than 20g of carbs per day. Then on the end day of the cycle, the last meal is comprised of minor amounts of protein and fat but HUGE amounts of carbs to restore glycogen levels. My plan is to use whole grain brown rice as my carb of choice. Rob says there is no need to count calories on this program however knowing grams of carbs, protein and fats would be a good idea.
Cruciferous vegetables are free and are not counted at all towards carbs because of their thermogenics impact and lack of an insulin response, so I'm sticking with Cauliflower as I just love it.. raw, steamed, however. Cauliflower also has the ability to lower estrogen levels thereby changing the Testosterone / Estrogen balance in favor of Testosterone.
After these past 7 days with no carbs, I have no cravings, but I do want an apple. I'm not craving the apple, but I would like to experience one again pretty soon. I love apples. Low GI, High Fiber, Thermogenic, taste good and they come in a convenient package.
I know that I'm a fat burner, but wanted to go through the process from start to finish as an example. I function better on protein and fat than I do on carbs anyway. I called a very famous friend of mine as I remember him telling me how he dropped all his weight eating protein, fat and saturated fat. He had told me that his cholesterol levels dropped to normal or better than normal range as well. We've decided to do a mutual interview on the subject which will be posted when the time comes. When I called him to ask him about what it was he did (as I had just my memory to go on), he agreed that my memory was correct. He gave me an example of what he had to eat today. He said that on his way home from the gym, he stopped at McDonalds for two Quarter Pounders with Cheese and two chicken sandwiches'. He removed the bun and the sauces and ate the veggies, meat and cheese. That was his food for the day.
According to Rob Faigen, his Natural Hormone Enhancement program is based on how we used to eat thousands of years ago before the "grain" movement (10,000 years ago) and before the industrial revolution which included the processing of foods.
Eat more like hunter gathers and our hormones will not only be stable, but we'll be in a hormonally enhanced state whereby ALWAYS burning fat for energy, having a great immune system, proper cholesterol levels and the ever elusive Anti- Aging miracle formula. I'm paraphrasing of course, but his book NHE lays out all the foundations for this sound science. With our hormones running at optimal levels, Human Growth Hormone, Testosterone, Glucagon and Insulin will all be maximizing muscle growth as well. Rob says that it's possible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. He has two programs within his book, 1 for those who want to maximize fat loss and a 2nd for bodybuilders who want to maximize muscle growth.
For the record, this is not a "no carbs diet". It's inteligently cycling of carbs. How I do it as a bodybuilder may be differnt from the program outlines for the general public. I do eat carbs. I just eat them in a specific maner at a specific time. More on that in later posts here and on my other blog.
It makes sense to me and I'm going to try it. I'll let you know how it goes as I'll probably be sticking with this one for the rest of my life.

Hoodia And A Good Diet
By Rob CooperHoodia
, the appetite and thirst suppressant of the South African aborigines has been tested as a dietary aid for persons wanting to stay on a weight loss diet plan. The natural supplement
has been proven to help individuals eat less in a natural and safe manner. However, like any diet aid, Hoodia suppressive qualities will only be truly beneficial if a healthy diet is also implemented.Genuine Hoodia
has been a lifesaver for natives traversing the desert. Facing scorching heat and having little food, Hoodia
helped people survive extreme conditions. The properties of a seemingly plain cactus are amazing. Thus, in the 1960’s scientists in Africa decide to attempt extracting the lifesaving properties, to help save the lives of obese
individuals having difficulty maintaining a healthy diet, and sticking to a weight loss program.
Successful, the diet aid still has one negative flaw. Since Hoodia suppresses both appetite and thirst, dieters must be careful to maintain healthy eating habits. As per trial results, a 100% Hoodia supplement
can influence appetite for the day. During regular mealtimes, an individual may not feel like eating a meal, preferring to skip eating altogether. Health care professionals will admonish patients to eat regularly. While avoiding meals seems like a good idea at the time, the body may go into starvation mode.
In starvation mode, the body assumes adequate food is not available, and metabolism slows down to preserve what the body has in store. Thus, an individual on a weight loss program will have an increasingly difficult time losing the weight in a healthy manner. Also, if the body is starved, as soon as a person begins eating regularly, lost weight will likely return. Basically, "slow and steady wins the race" also applies to healthy dieting. Also, lifestyle changes will result in maintaining a healthy weight and not suffering frustrating fluctuations. So, Hoodia
consumers must eat a well balanced diet.
To maintain a health diet, individuals should consume at least 3 ounces of whole grains per day. Health researchers have discovered the necessity of adequate fiber for proper digestion. Oatmeal
is a good choice. In fact, lack of sufficient fiber may result in poor health including higher cholesterol
, and the possibility of developing certain types of cancer
. Thus, whole grain breads, crackers, or cereals are essential to good health. Wheat free is best as most people have wheat intolerances.
Fruit is also an important element in a healthy diet. The recommended daily allowance is 3-5 servings. However, a person’s idea of proper serving sizes, and the actual amount needed per day, is usually larger than the actual requirements. Therefore, check with a physician to find out the exact amount needed for good nutrition. Also, fresh fruit, rather than juices are recommended. Fruit juices often have added sugars and preservatives. Fresh is always best. Harvey Diamond of Fit For Life fame recommends fresh fruit juices daily. For a great resource, listen to my Harvey Diamond interview
I did in 2005.
Many individuals do not consume enough fresh vegetables to satisfy the body’s needs for certain vitamins and minerals. Unless the habit is developed early in childhood and veggies are consistently included in meals, most people generally choose sweet and starchy foods.
Frankly, vegetarians usually have lower cholesterol
levels, are less likely to be overweight, and consume enough vegetables for a healthy diet. While canned vegetables are more convenient for preparation, fresh vegetables are preferable. Also, uncooked carrots and beans, among other selections, retain the full amount of vitamins and minerals. During the cooking process, especially if boiled, vegetables tend to lose nutritional values. If cooked vegetables are desired, steaming is a much better method for sustaining taste and healthy qualities.
Last in the food pyramid are proteins. Many people usually eat too much red meat, not enough fish, and very little beans. In actuality, the opposite should be true. Legumes and fish are far healthier, especially for cardiovascular health, than red meats. Nevertheless, proteins are a necessary element of a diet
. Muscles need protein.
A proper diet is essential to good health, even if Hoodia suppresses the appetite. Also, drinking enough water for proper hydration is important. Consider the fact that the body is 80% water. Dehydration will negatively affect the skin, internal organs, and the muscles. So, even if Hoodia keeps the individual from becoming thirsty, keep a water bottle handy and liquidate the body’s assets.
If Hoodia helps people maintain a healthier diet and realize a proper weight, yeah! Changing eating habits can be extremely difficult, and many well-meaning dieters often give up in frustration, feeling deprived and hopeless. Any healthy diet aid is a Godsend. However, consumers need to take Hoodia responsibly, remembering to eat properly, and drinking enough to sustain a healthy body.

Harvey Diamond, Fit For Life co Author Live Interview
, the fellow who was responsible for the start of my 300 pound weight loss agreed to do an interview with me and we completed it on Monday morning. Most of my interviews are one hour long, but Harvey Diamond
agreed to go on for another half and hour so he could completely answer subscribers questions and cover the material having to do with food combining and freedom from pain.
Harvey and I spoke about food combining
(natural hygiene) which was first written about in Fit For Life back in the 80’s. We discussed the effects it has had on his health and the many others who’ve read his books Fit For Life, Fit For Life 2, the Fit For Life Solution and his latest Living Without Pain. We talked about some myths regarding consuming fruit properly, eating nothing but fruit for the first four hours of your day, the importance of strengthening of the immune system and even how bodybuilders can build quality muscle on a vegetarian diet.Harvey Diamond
taught me about food combining
and about how the body uses food. I had no idea at the time that we could change how we ate and affect how we felt and the results we got. I find that I quote Harvey all the time and it’s just become a part of me.
Because of Harvey Diamond
, I quit smoking, quit drinking coffee, began juicing, began walking and basically turned my life around.
The interview will be available on my Former Fat Guy show website which will be available in the next few weeks.
