Research shows that Green Tea Extract (GTE) accelerates fat incineration — specifically from the abdominal area — and induces a barrage of potent health benefits. It’s a MUST take for living lean.
While one goal of weight lifting is to buff up, most people who train religiously acknowledge that the benefits go far beyond muscular growth. Here are 18 reasons why you NEED to lift weights — right now.
Cellulite is one of the most frustrating aesthetic puzzles for women of all ages and sizes. Women in their 20’s get cellulite ALL the time–just look at Lauren Conrad, Tara Reid, and Mischa Barton. All three are gorgeous and in incredible shape (or were, Tara Reid’s kind of gone downhill a bit lately), yet cellulite manages to plaster their backsides like stucco paint. What gives?
Weight loss is NOT just about calories in vs. calories out. If you’ve been “dieting”–but haven’t seen the weight loss to show for it–fixing your diet to manipulate insulin levels and control blood sugar is most likely your golden ticket to a lean, phenomenal body.

Burning fat is all about pumping up the intensity…TURBO intensity. Well guess what? That’s exactly what you’re getting from this high-powered, metabolism-boosting, full-body workout. Do this workout 3x per week, plus a day of cardio in between each workout, and you’ll transform your body into a full-fledged fat-burning furnace (not to mention you’ll pack on solid new muscle too). That’s right–you’ll eviscerate stubborn body fat around the clock to the point where it begins to melt off, revealing your gorgeous, cut-up musculature below. Commence ripped-ness. The Workout Rest 30 seconds between each set. Shorter rest = higher intensity. It’s intense–make sure your body and heart is able to handle each exercise. If you feel lightheaded stop. Do this workout 3x per week and take at least 1 day in between each fat-blasting workout. Do traditional cardio 2x per week....
*Please refer to our updated article on protein and top protein sources (4/2014). I’m a HUGE proponent of getting a lot of protein in the diet, and it’s not all about building huge, beefy muscles (although it helps a lot if that’s what you’re going for). Put plain and simply, protein is the “leanness” nutrient. It helps pack on toned-up, rock hard new muscle, preserves the muscle that the body (and you) busted its ass to build up, and elevates the body’s metabolism, burning extra calories than normal and shredding off nasty body fat/cellulite. I’ll be blunt — becoming lean, toned, and ripped up requires two simple steps: 1. building muscle tone & 2. shredding body fat. Eating protein constantly throughout the day does both simultaneously. Here’s how: Building muscle tone. In the world of sports nutrition there’s a...
Protein powder’s pretty much a must-use if you’re at all concerned with building muscle or maintaining the muscle you already have. Honestly, I even recommend drinking protein shakes if building muscle isn’t your concern…it’s that effective at burning fat.
