Killer 7 Minute Ripped Abs Workout — For Women and Men

Killer 7 minute ripped abs workout for women and men that you can modify to get you even better results. Any workout you see is just a template that you can modify to make even more effective for your particular situation.

How to Do Your Own Killer 7 Minute Ripped Abs Workout

There are probably 60 or more exercises you can do to strengthen you abs. You probably already know most of these exercises. Some are variations of the plank, leg raises, sit-ups, crunches, and so on.

Variety: Exercising a muscle in different ways, with different exercises is one way of challenging the muscle to become stronger. So, change up your exercises from time to time to overcome a plateau.

Progression: Like any muscle, your abs respond and grow best when exercised in a progressive way. Progression simply means making the exercise more challenging over a period of time. So, how do you implement progression?

Resistance: You already know about progression in many of the exercises you do. The first way to make an exercise more challenging is to add weight or resistance to the exercise. If you already do sit-ups or crunches well, hold a small weight to your chest. This will challenge your muscles to grow.

Add Reps: Another way to challenge your muscle is to add reps to a set. If you are doing 20 reps per set, try doing 25 reps.

Add Sets: And, of course, the next way is to add sets. If you are doing 5 sets of an exercise, next time to 6 sets.

Add Time Under Load: When you are doing static exercises like planks, you can challenge your muscle by adding time. If you can do a plank for 60 seconds, next time try 90 seconds.

Slower Negatives: You muscles grow by recovering from micro-tears to the muscle tissue. Your muscles are actually damaged when you exercise. During an exercise, your muscles contract or get shorter and then relax or get longer. It’s the relaxing or negative phase that causes the most damage. While exercising you may feel blood coming into your muscles. This “pump” is not muscle growth. Your muscles repair and actually grow during the recovery time between your exercise sessions. By slowing down the relaxing or negative phase of each exercise you will cause the maximum damage and reap the maximum growth.

You now know how to make any workout more effective in building ripped abs. So, let’s start this basic Killer 7 minute ripped abs workout for both women and men.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures – 10% Body Fat Pictures

Body fat percentage pictures help motivate you to reach your goal. See what 10% body fat really looks like.

The American Council on Exercise provides some guidelines on the recommended body fat percentage for both men and women. Their classification of body fat percentages are:

Classifaction Women Men
Essential Fat 10-13% 2-5%
Athelets 14-20% 6-13%
Fitness 21-24% 14-17%
Average 25-31% 18-24%
Obese 32% and higher 25% and higher

These following body fat percentage pictures show primarily what an athletic person could look like. Enjoy and get motivated!

Body Fat Percentage Pictures

Today we’re going to be discussing body fat percentages pictures and look at realistic examples with different people including Conor McGregor, Steve Cook, Jeff Nippard, and many more, including, of course, yours truly. To make this as realistic as possible, I’ve only chosen people who have documented that body class percentages using its DEXA Scan which is supposed to be the most accurate method out there.

So what DEXA scan does it uses x-ray consisting of two different beams where as a higher energy which gets absorbed by bones and soft tissue and the lower intensity one gets only absorbed by soft tissue, which means muscle and fat.

So before we start, again don’t forget to click the notification bell next to the subscribe button, and also put the subscribe button to keep up with all of my videos that are coming. Still do that you will not regret it.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 7% Body Fat

So, the first on the list is going to be Conor McGregor. Love this guy. He’s an Irish MMA fighter and he looked like this at the time of the DEXA scan. And as you can see, he doesn’t look lean. He does look very very athletic. So Conor actually came to 7% body fat, which is extremely lean. And I would have guessed, like 10 percent by that. But apparently I’m wrong.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 6.2% Body Fat

Now let’s talk about one of the most shredded people that I’ve ever seen. His name is Alberto Nunez and he took a DEXA Scan recently. This is a closest that you can possibly look to a Dragonball Z character. I threw that in there just to prove that Goku is in fact Mady. So before the DEXA Scan he did a little bit of a posing update to show people how he looks like. And this guy is insane. He looks like a human roadmap. He’s got veins absolutely everywhere. Even his ass looks like a washboard. So Conor McGregor with 7% body fat; this guy must be like zero point five percent. Right? Wrong. He actually came to six point two percent body fat.

Apparently he’s only got zero point 8 percent less body fat and Conor McGregor which is crazy when you look at the visual comparison. The difference is astonishing. But anyways. let’s look at more examples.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 5.7% Body Fat

Next up is Mischa Janiec, the vegan bodybuilder and considered by many to have one of the best physiques on YouTube. we have the 5.7 huh? Yeah, crazy. He got 5.7 percent body fat. And this footage is shown after the DEXA scan. He is obviously in fantastic shape, very, very lean. But when you compare Mischa to Alberto you would have guessed that Alberto is actually leaner. And also there are other things that we can’t really know, like lighting and pump. So let’s just accept these results for now.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 5.8% Body Fat

So next up is going to be Rob Lipset. fellow Youtuber from Ireland. This guy has a really great physique. So what was his results? “I came in at five point eight percent body fat.” I mean Rob has a fantastic physique, but he scored lower than Alberto Nunez and the same as Mischa. And Rob actually said that he thinks that he is actually higher than when he tested which I agree with. “I would give myself personally about 8%.”

He took a picture of himself shirtless that day, and posted to Instagram with of course half nighty lighting and probably a little sneaky increase in contrast. Yes, we’re all guilty of that. But this is really crazy because DEXA is supposed to be the most accurate, you know, test out there. And compare Rob with Nischa and Alberto. You can clearly see that they are not the same. But a percentage. And since both Robinson and Conor McGregor are from Ireland I’m starting to think that these machines are kind of racist and favor the Irish more than everyone else.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 11.5% Body Fat

Next up is Steve Cook, professional men’s physique competitor. And he got a DEXA can in his offseason. Steve Cook looks extremely shredded most of the time. So I’m surprised he took a DEXA scan when he was in the offseason. And his result came to at 11.5%. And fortunately, like many other physique competitors and bodybuilders, it’s very hard to find footage of them shirtless when they’re not stage ready.

Come on guys, it’s okay. It’s fine to show some love-handle action sometimes. Anyways I did my detective work and I managed to find a picture of him, or two pictures actually, from the same week of the DEXA scan. And these two are it. Obviously going to choose the best angles and lighting, but yeah, As you can see at 11.5% body fat heI still maintains visible abs and vascular arms.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 10.8% Body Fat

Okay guys, get ready. Jaime Alderton is our next case study. He actually did two with DEXA scans. One before in before his contest prep and one right before his contest, I believe. As you can see here on the left, he tested at fifteen percent body fat. Another, right, you can see the end result after all his hard work. He got an astonishing low level of ten point eight percent body fat. So you’re telling me that Jamie Alderton is 11 percent body fat. But look at the pictures that he took when he was contest ready. He looks absolutely insane, extremely dry, deep cuts. This does not make any sense.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 8.2% Body Fat

Another fellow Youtuber his, name is Jeff Nippard. As you can see he has a very full, complete looking physique. And as you can see here in the footage, taken the same day of the test, he is definitely carrying more fat than some of the other examples that I’ve shown. But nevertheless, he took the test and it came to a 8.4 which is a lot leaner than I expected it to be.. To me 8.2% seems a little bit low for him, especially when you’re comparing him to Jaime Alderton.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 8.1% Body Fat

Next up Kinobody is another Youtuber that did a DEXA scan recently. And he is in great shape. But as you can see in this footage, I would have guessed him to 12% body fat to be honest. So let’s see what I got. “it’s an amazing eight point one.” “Eight point one percent. Eight point one. WOW! That’s great.” So this is another example that does not make sense because he is clearly not leaner than Jamie Alderton with a score 3 percent lower.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 17% Body Fat

So it’s now the moment that you’ve been waiting for. My turn to do the DEXA scan. I’ve never a DEXA scan before. This is my first time. So as you can see I just did a little physique update right after I did a huge burger challenge. So I was a little bit loade,d but you can see more or less how I’m looking before getting scaned. I would have guessed that I’m about fourteen percent body fat. Okay, you guys. Ready? Drum roll. Total body, seventeen percent. Yeah. Okay. It’s not okay. Apparently I’m as bad as this G. So after crying a little bit in the bathroom for a few minutes, I came to the conclusion that my muscles are actually not muscles. They are a cluster of hardened fat that look like muscles, but they’re not.

I have a higher body fat percentage than Jamie Alderton before he started his prep. And, also, I am about 10% higher and by effect compared to Kinobody. As you can see right here. I guess I’ll be showing my new raw broccoli diet today.

Body Fat Percentage Pictures 3.9% Body Fat

To finish off, we have a very good example. we have Durianrider who is a part-time cyclist. And did a DEXA scan as well. “A lean 3.9 percent.” Okay. What is going on here? This doesn’t make any sense at all. If he was actually three point nine percent body fat, he will be on the verge of dying. So even if the DEXA scan is the most accurate way to measure body fat, it obviously has some flaws.

How Accurate Are DEXA Scans?

So I was doing some research. I found out that there are three main manufacturers for the DEXA equipment. Depending on where the machine comes from, it may give use different results. And even the same machine that you use may give different results depending on a lot of different factors. A study, for example, shows that one of the most common reasons for the DEXA scan errors is the fat free mass hydration levels. It shows that even a 5% variation in fat free mass hydration can cause a difference of the 3% in body fat results.

So apparently, these DEXA scan machines assume that the non bone and non fat lean tissue mass has a constant hydration level. So instead, I found that a group of people who dehydrated themselves got different levels from the day after when they were completely hydrated. A study done in the University of Hospital in Italy actually found that 90 percent of all the scans had at least one error. But what they do show is that a DEXA scan is actually very, very accurate. But maybe not as accurate as people think. They are to me personally, these numbers do not matter too much. What I feel works best for me is just working out hard, eating a clean diet. And just look at the results in the mirror. So if somebody you know thinks they know everything about body fat percentages, send them this video.

Cause of Obesity and Treatment of Obesity

What is the cause of obesity?

With 70% of Americans overweight, any treatment of obesity that does not address the cause of obesity will fail. Doctors and pharmaceutical companies are often content to treat symptoms.

Dr. Jason Fung presents six talks that help you understand what science has discovered about the real cause of obesity and the successful treatment of obesity.

Welcome to the lecture. This is called the etiology of obesity and this is the first part of my six-part series looking at, basically, what the cause of obesity is. And and then later on we’ll get into what a successfully treatment of obesity looks like.

First Record of the Cause of Obesity

So let me start with a story. This is William Banting. He was a London Undertaker and he lived in the 1796 to 1878 and basically he had become very obese through the years starting in his mid 30s. He had started to gain a few pounds every year until by age 62, he had weighed about 202 pounds which was really quite obese for that time. And not being too happy with that whole situation, he decided that he would do something about it.

So what he did was he went to see some physicians and they gave him some various advice such as increasing the exercise. So living near the Thames, he actually took up rowing. And he decided that he would row every day. The problem was that he said that he developed a very healthy appetite. But in the end, he wasn’t able to lose any weight. So he went to see some other esteemed doctor at the time, and he told him well all you need to do is decrease your caloric intake and you’ll automatically lose weight. But what he found was that he was just tired and hungry. And he still wasn’t able to lose weight.

The Cause of Obesity Found!

So eventually he came to the attention of a French surgeon who told him about a specific diet which involved eating three meals a day of a meat, fish, or game with just very little stale toast or cooked fruit on the side. And what happened was that he avoided very strenuously these fattening carbohydrates which were sugar and starch, the bread, beer, sweet potatoes. And what he found was that he actually was able to lose a significant amount of weight very quickly.

So he published this in a letter called “Letter on Corpulence” published in 1863. And it actually quickly became one of the best-selling diet books of its time. And it’s really considered one of the first diets.

This sort of idea about a treatment of obesity actually persisted for quite a few years.

Early Medicine Knew the Treatment of Obesity

So William Osler who is considered the father of modern medicine. He authored the textbook “The Principles and Practice of Medicine” which was very influential. In it he discusses treatment of obesity. And much of his ideas are similar to Banting. They featured lean beef, veal, mutton, and eggs. That was his opinion. He actually had published a monograph himself on obesity and its treatment. His thought was that what needed to be eaten was fatty foods. Fats are crucial actually, because they increased the satiety and therefore decrease fat accumulation. His idea, of course, was very similar to Banting, that one needed to strenuously avoid the fattening carbohydrate.

Up until the 1950s and 60s, this idea was fairly prevalent. It wasn’t really a secret in any way. If you look at standard textbooks, or even for those addressed to the lay public at the time, such as Dr. Spock’s “Baby and Child Care”, things hadn’t progressed much beyond that. What he noted was that rich desserts, the amount of plain starchy foods taken is what determines, in the case of most people, how much weight they gain or lose.

The Cause of Obesity Well Known

In the British Journal of Nutrition in 1963, Dr. Passmore writes “every woman knows that the carbohydrate is fattening.” That is, this cause of obesity was fairly common knowledge. That is, if you eat fattening carbohydrate, not all carbohydrates, but the starchy foods, the sugary foods, the sweets, they are going to lead you to obesity. That was pretty well the prevalent thinking at his time.

How We Lost the Cause of Obesity

Things started to change in the 1950s and 1960s with the great so-called epidemic of coronary disease. And what this was, was as we industrialized, what we noted was that there was an increasing incidence of coronary disease. So in the 1950s dietary fat increasingly became vilified for its effect on LDL cholesterol. The so called diet heart hypothesis. And by the 1960s, the American Medical Association was insisting that the so called low carbohydrate diets were fad. Of course, they really were anything but a fad, having been used for close to 200 years.

The vitriol was so extreme that John Mayer, who is a prominent nutritionist of his time, actually said that these carbohydrate restricted diets was the equivalent of mass murder. We’re killing people with these, with these reducing diets. The problem was this, of course, that if fat was the problem then you necessarily had to eat a high carbohydrate diet if you’re going to eat low fat. Because fat and protein tend to travel together. However, the fattening carbohydrate could not be healthy in that it’s low fat and unhealthy at the same time. Because it causes obesity.

Now Fats are the Problem!

So in order to resolve this cognitive dissonance, all of a sudden the fattening carbohydrate suddenly turned into the “healthy whole grain”. The fat with its dense calories was simply assumed to cause obesity even though there was really no proof, anecdotal or otherwise. To sustain that the model that we think about obesity, instead of being the fattening carbohydrate model, all a sudden became this calories in calories out model. And that’s where we were in the 1970s.

There was still a significant amount of debate of course, between the dietary fat proponents and the dietary carbohydrate refined carbohydrate camp. And this was settled not by scientific dispute, but really by dictum by government in 1977.

USDS Supports Agriculture with Dietary Guidelines

The US Department of Agriculture published. for the first time. this Dietary Goals for the United States. This was the first time, really, that any government institution had told Americans that they could really improve their health by eliminating or reducing the fat in their diets. This is a copy of the USDA Dietary Guidelines and what you can see very prominently is that you should avoid too much fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol. And what you should eat is actually adequate starch. So instead of avoiding the fatty carbohydrates, you should really eat more.

And this dietary fat controversy turned from a scientific controversy into a political one. It came down really on the side of eating more carbohydrates. This explicitly determined goal was to raise the consumption of carbohydrates until they constituted 55 to 60 percent of calories, and to decrease the fat consumption from approximately 40 percent to 30 percent.

This is what gives us the very familiar food pyramid which is meats at the top with poultry, fish, you know, weekly or even monthly. And at the bottom what you should be eating every single day is bread, pasta, rice, and whole grains.

Lack of Exercise as a Cause of Obesity

Physical activity, of course, is very important. It got to the point in 1995 if you were to look at an American Heart Association diet. But this is what they wrote, “To control the amount and kind of fat diet, saturated fatty acids, and dietary cholesterol, you eat snacks from other food groups, such as low-fat cookies, low-fat crackers, unsalted pretzels, hard candy, gumdrops, sugar, syrup, honey, jam.” In other words, it really didn’t matter how much sugar was in your snack or in your diet. It only mattered how much fat there was.

So things like this, which is candy, is entirely fine to eat as long as you’re cutting the fat. So how did we do? How did we do?

As a nation, well it turns out that we actually did pretty well. If you look at what happened, we made a very conscious effort to eat less fat, less red meat, fewer eggs If you look at the average fat consumption of Americans, it decreased from about 45% of calories to about 35%. If you look at what else we told them to do, so you know, get your blood pressure checked, get your blood pressure treated, to stop smoking, to treat your cholesterol, we did very well as well. So 40% decline in hypertension, 28 percent decline in hypercholesterolemia. So it turns out we did very well.

Public Followed Government’s Advice

So in fact, you can’t really say that the public wasn’t listening to us. In fact, they were had listened to the advice of the time and tried really their very best to comply. And they did.

We told them to eat less fat and eat more carbohydrates. And that is what they did. So if you look at the changes in the U.S. food availability, you can see that butter, eggs and and animal protein, such as meat, significantly decreased from the 1960s to today. And what we ate instead was what we were told to eat: grains and sugars. If you look at the U.S. sugar consumption through the years you can see through the 1800’s there’s a steadily rising increase in the amount of sugar per capita that Americans were eating. This really reflects the increased availability of the sugar. As sugar plantations kind of spread throughout the Caribbean and the U.S. south. By the time you hit the 1920s you can see that there really is not that much more that we are going to eat. And we enter a sort of flat period from the 1920s to about 1977.

By the time they tell us that eating sugar is just fine, you can see that there’s this secondary spike in the amount of sugar that we eat. If you look at grain which is the, the most important of which is wheat, we you can see that in 1950 the per capita consumption was approximately a hundred twenty-five pounds per year and in the 1960s it decreased slightly. In the 1970s, decreased down to a hundred and thirteen. But by 1980 had gone up to 122. By 1990 a hundred and forty one. And two thousand, a hundred and forty six total.

Grain products shows a very similar distribution. And what happened you can see that there had been a very slowly increasing incidence of obesity over the previous years. But when you hit here if there’s a clear tipping point right here in 1977 when they release the first Dietary Guidelines for Americans. You can see that the curve really changes, That is instead of a slowly rising increase in the prevalence of obesity, it takes a very sudden sharp turn for the worse.

Calories-In Calories-Out Cause of Obesity

So this is the way that we understand obesity now. The reason we don’t actually think about what causes obesity is because we actually think that we know what causes it.

And this is what we think: so this is caloric reduction as primary theory that is it’s all about the calories. Sometimes called calories-in calories-out. And what causes obesity? Well it’s clear that you either eat too much or you exercise too little. and really those are personal choices or behaviors. So that is the way that many of us think about obesity as it currently stands.

Assumptions

And there’s a few implicit assumptions in that theory that you may or may not realize. But a calorie, the calorie of sugar, is no different than a calorie of fat. The fat stores are essentially unregulated. That is, it’s simply a dump for excess calories. Of if there’s the imbalance here, it will be simply simply dumped into the body as as fact the intake and the expenditure of calories are under your conscious control. That is, we make all the decisions on how much we eat, how much we exercise. Which sort of ignores the effect of hunger as well as basal metabolic rate.

Dr. Jason Fung goes on to talk about what sciene shows to be the result of various studies trying to support the calories-in, calories-out hypothtesis as well as the studies showing the real cause of obesity.

This is the first of a six-part series in which Dr. Fung describes how you can actually control your weight, lose excess fat and maintain a healthy weight. Watch all six lectures.

My Complete Ab Workout – Rob Riches

British-born cover model, Rob Riches, shows his complete six pack workout to target the entire abdominal section.

The next step up to being able to engage and really develop our lower abdominal structure is to add some gravity. So basically, what is the same as the lying leg raise. I’ve got a height adjustable bench here. Head up at the top, and get my hips down here. Legs at the same movement but now I have a wider range of motion.

I really have to engage, work the lower abs. The same principles apply. Tempo: we’re keeping momentum out of the equation. Here we’re focusing on that deep breathing and contracting out up at the end.

Secondly, form and technique: both my knees and my arm position are fixed. The only parts that are really moving are my hips and the lower abdominals. Think of it like a almost in a cocoon, fetal position. Elbows up on my temple. That keeps my arms fixed and keeps the abdominal muscles, down here, constantly tense which helps add to the intensity of the exercise.

Breathing, again, exhaling as you come up. I really can’t stress the importance, especially as you step up the advancement level, breathing has in actually engaging the abdominals, helping you increase that muscular contraction. Fifteen to thirty reps on here and if you need to take a short break, five seconds, back on and try and complete at least two if not five more reps after that.

Alright, let’s move on now hit the lower and side obliques. Next exercise is the high cable wood chop. This is a classic favorite of mine. And adding that resistance taking it through a constant range of motion really keeps maximal contraction on these internal external obliques, the V sectional apps that we really work by rotating the core. So this is a step up from I think the seated medicine ball rotation where we have a fixed object moving it around the core. This time, again, we’re fixed but we have this constant resistance that’s always the same. Basically, we have no sticking point, which means it’s a lot more fluid, so keeping those muscles engaged.

Okay, the outer arm goes on last. Arms bent. I’ve got a moderate weight on here; it’s not too heavy because really it’s my obliques doing the work and nothing else. Love this exercise. But really, developing the side obliques, I don’t use too much weight. So I focus back on the breathing and the technique and form. Keep my arms as fixed as I can I’m not bending them. My arms aren’t doing this and I’m keeping my hips my waist as fixed as possible. I’m doing this movement which even without any weight as you can see the muscles happen to work. So when I combine breathing back I really get that deep contraction pulling my abdominals in. When you add some resistance like I have done here, that really helped improve their conditioning and helps you get that grainy effect, grainy gropey muscle effect, when you’re low body fat comes throug. That is read cardio and diet come in.

But you’ve got to have have the abdominal structure developed before that can be seen.

Now, I’ve worked one set of the obliques and that will work the opposite direction and switch the handle from high to low. Basically using the same weight but now I’ve got gravity going against me. So, outer hand over on the end same principles apply. Keeping the arms fixed and rotating around my waist. Keeping that fixed as I exhale. Focus on squeezing the muscle at the end. That means slight pause and a break in momentum.

By moving on from the rotational portion of this ab circuit I’m now going to take the cable, put it back up to the top and focus on some high cable pull downs to really start to engage in bringing my intercostals here. And with that slight rotation it’s another dynamic, another factor variable I’m changing in the ABS Orcutt to help increase the intensity and help further condition and train my abs.

It’s going to set up few modifications to this exercise. I’m going to remove the handle and take the weight up. Reasons for that I’m going to hold the ball here where it keeps my wrist elbow and shoulder all in line. Instead of having a handle to pull down on. I’m actually engaging more of my obliques this way. Secondly, because the height of this, if the handle were here I’m not getting full contraction or lengthening of my abs. So by taking the ball up to the top I can get that full range of movement and then about it. The weight increasing the intensity because now I’m only that’s really flexing my ABS. I’m not having to bring that weight outwards away from that gravity.

So same principles technique form breathing control you can see from this exercise just that shortness range of motion from here how much I’m moving I’m not coming all the way down here. The purpose of this exercise is not to flex your body to the side as much as you can it’s again that contraction. With that, breath out. And that slight rotation to get these abdominals. My shoulder is working. See if I would just go up and down engaging but not as much as that twist that elbow comes down and slightly backward. It’s kind of like you’re drawing a J backwards with your elbow. See these pulling. Oh so, if you want to focus on getting that V cut just around the top of the short line, this is a great exercise to be able to build up to and really get these lower muscles working.

Okay, on with the final exercise of this particular app circuit. And for that I’m going to head back over to the decline bench and start to pull in my upper abdominals combined with a lower section again. Now I’m going to bring gravity back into the mix for this final ab exercise of the AB circuit. The reason is now my lower abdominals have to work that much harder to contract and pull my body weight with my torso, shoulders up from that decline position. So I think shoulders and hips, whichever, is going to be lower means that particular portion lower abdominals if the hips are lower than the shoulders, upper abdominals, if the shoulders are lower than the hips.

So we’re just using this adjustable bench to manipulate which part is doing more work really does make a difference how high or low the shoulders are in relation to where the hips, and how the apps that happens contract money about 20 degrees lower than my hips there. Get that little extra movement now that my abs have to be stretched out that tiny bit farther as I go down. It means they’re having to work much harder than if I was just simply laying flat or adding resistance for that same movement. So there’s another tip instead of simply trying to add heavier weight through the exercise think about the range of motion.

How to Burn the Most Fat So You Can See Your Abs


How to Burn the Most Fat So You Can See Your Abs! Want to lose belly fat to see your abs? You must become a fat burner. Here is the key to becoming a fat burner, losing weight, especially abdominal fat.

In this video we’re going to talk about how to burn fat, a very important topic, but a big problem simply because pretty much all the mainstream recommendations for burning fat are completely outdated. In fact, look at the statistics in America: only 2% of the population ever is successful at burning fat, in achieving their weight-loss goals.

An average female spent 17 years dieting. So what does that tell you? They’re operating off of incorrect information.

What I’m going to tell you is based on fact, physiology books, how the body works. There are two main fuel sources in the body. Okay, you have fat and you have stored sugar. There is a third one called muscle, but I’m not going to get into that because you have to be very very sick for your body to start using muscle protein as a fuel source.

We’re going to talk about the two main ones which are fat and sugar. In other words, your body can store sugar (the name of that’s called glycogen) in your liver and your muscles. And that can released in between times where you’re not eating. Okay. Or it can go after the fat.

So the way it works, our fat burning hormones based on what you eat and what you do trigger the fat, and then to release certain enzymes to dissolve that fat, called lipase enzymes. These enzymes that break fats down into ketones. Ketones are the byproduct of fat metabolism and your body can run on these very efficiently, way better actually it’s a better fuel source, it’s a cleaner fuel source. Your body can run on this; even your brain can run on ketones.

Now fat making hormones trigger the storage of sugar and the conversion of the sugar into fat. So that’s how that works. The great majority of people are only burning sugar which is glucose. They’re not burning fat. What occurs is they will lose some temporary water weight and they hit a plateau, thinking that’s actual fat. But if they never actually burn fat, and I can prove that because I have a machine that measures how much fact someone burns, and you can very easily see they lose water weight, and then they plateau.

Insulin has the Strength to Prevent Fat Burning

So, the great majority people burn sugar. They’re not actually burning fat. So in this next section I’m going to tell you about the single control factor that determines whether you’re burning fat or whether you’re burning sugar.

So here it is: the number one controller of whether you burn actual fat or whether you’re burning sugar is this one hormone called insulin. So insulin, even in small amounts, has the strength, the domination, to prevent you from tapping into your fat reserve. So here’s a little graph on how much insulin, or let’s just say when I talk about insulin I’m going to talk about sugar, because sugar triggers insulin. So I could easily say the number one control of whether you burn fat is sugar, or hidden sugars. But I’m just going to call insulin sugar right now. So that sugar is high, let’s say it’s high sugar right here, or high insulin. You’re not going to be able to burn fat.

Your body is running on sugar. So let’s say you eat moderately. Because someone said everything in moderation, you know it still won’t work because insulin has to be zero, or sugar has to be zero, to tap into ketones which are is the byproduct of fat burning, which is ketosis. So in other words, it’s not a graph that’s a gradual graph. You have to make insulin, or so we say sugar, zero before you can burn fat.

Ketosis is Needed to Burn Fat

So now we’re going to talk about this thing called ketosis. Ketosis is what we want to get into. And you may hear some negative things about ketosis because it relates to diabetes. But we’re talking about doing ketosis in a very healthy way. Okay, ketosis is the healthiest thing to do for your blood sugars, for your heart, for your brain, and other conditions like polycystic ovarian syndrome. Really, really important because, think about that condition, persons are usually always insulin resistant. And if they go on this diet they see great improvements. Okay, so we want to get the person in ketosis.

To get in ketosis usually does not happen overnight. It’s easy to tap into the sugar reserve because all you have to do is eat sugar but to get into ketosis it can sometimes take way more than two days. It could take a week, to two weeks, up to a month, and maybe in some situations five or even six weeks before you’re really hardcore into fat burning. Now why is that? Because you’ve been living on sugar your whole life and your system is so inefficient and so used to burning sugar.

You Must be Keto Adapted

To convert over it’s called a keto adaptation. So you’re adapting to burning fat just takes a little bit longer. Don’t worry about it because you can see ketones in your urine within a few days. But the point is, you want to stick with it a little longer. And I think what discourages a lot of people is they think they’re going to burn fat in a day or two. And they get discouraged, and they stop when in fact to adapt your body into a fat-burning it could take up to a month, to possibly six weeks in very extreme cases.

I’m telling you that because it might happen in a week, or maybe a little longer than a week. But just hang in there and stick with it because it will happen. And your body will be burning fat. And a lot of problems will actually go away.

What You Should Eat to See Your Abs

So now let’s talk about what foods that you have to eat to get into ketosis. OK, so here’s here’s what you need to eat. Number one you want to keep your carbohydrates within 5 to 10 percent of the entire amount of calories that you eat in a given day. Now the type of carbohydrates we’re going to recommend are vegetable in nature. So why vegetable even though they have a small amount of carbohydrate? They have a lot of vitamins and minerals that you’re not going to get with protein or fat. So we do want the vegetable carbohydrates here in a good amount. Okay, but the net sugars from that is going to be very, very, very low. If anything, at all.

Okay. 25% of your diet should come in the form of protein. This thing that I’m telling you is not the Atkins diet. Atkins is a lot of protein. Our body is not made out of carbohydrate. Some of her body is protein, but a lot of our body is made out of fat.

And that’s the third one right here. 65 to 80 percent of your calories should be in the form of fat. Now before you freak out, realize that I actually have been in ketosis for quite a while. And I have a lot of clients that also have been in ketosis. And it’s a very healthy thing to do because you feel so good. But, fat is good. It’s going to be in the form of healthy fats. And it’s not going to be absolutely deep-fried, you know anything.

So we want the carbohydrates vegetable, we want the protein so that would kind of come out to about, let’s say, about four to five, maybe six ounces of protein with each meal. Okay. But see most protein comes with fat. So a lot of your protein source actually comes from fat as well. But you do not want to consume the lean proteins, and that is because you need that fat to get your body into ketosis. Eskimos consume blubber and they actually are in a state of ketosis. And they can actually, a lot of them, actually have zero heart problems at all.

And if you’re concerned about increasing your cholesterol, realize this your body makes 2,000 milligrams of cholesterol every single day. Why would your body make that much cholesterol if it didn’t need it? So when you consume more cholesterol or fat your body just makes less. That’s how it works. You need this cholesterol to build the surrounding around on your cells. You need its raw material to build up your hormones, especially stress hormone. So you need it for the lens of the eye and even the brain. A lot of cholesterol is in our brain to help the nerve connectivity.

So your body adapts to that. So we need a lot of it, I mean like one egg would be 300 milligrams. So you have to have like 40 eggs to equal what your body makes every single day. But it adapts, so you eat less your body makes more. You eat more, the body makes less.

So now, 65 to 80 percent of your body should be in the form of fat, so that is the formula To get someone in fat burning. One time in high school I was a wrestler and I tried to gain weight. And so when I did is I decided, well of course, if I wanna gain weight I have to eat fatty foods. I started losing weight the more fat that I ate. And that kind of confused me until later when I got into the physiology of it. I found out that consuming fat is neutral with insulin. Eating fat does not trigger insulin.

Eat to Keep Insulin Very Low

Insulin is the key thing that must be zero. Because once you get your body into fat-burning by doing this, all it’s going to take is a little bit of sugar to totally throw you out of ketosis. Once your body is adapted to it. But you’ll feel much better with your energy, with your cardiovascular, with your endurance. And if you add exercise on top of this, oh my gosh, it’s going to be huge. A lot of professional athletes are going into this as well because they have a lot better performance. And a lot of credible medical doctors are even recommending this as well. So it’s a it’s a new thing. And you know it’s true because it’s the exact opposite of what mainstream is telling you to do. They’re saying have 60% of your diet carbohydrates and have only 5 to 10 percent fat and protein the same. So you know it’s correct. So if you just did the opposite of what everyone tells you to do you’ll come out on top.
