If you’re not drinking green tea with your workouts, you might be wasting your time at that barre class. A study published in The Journal of Nutrition found that after just two weeks, exercisers who sipped four to five cups of green tea each day and logged 25-minutes at the gym lost more belly fat than their non-tea-drinking counterparts. What makes the drink so powerful? It contains catechins, an antioxidant that hinders the storage of belly fat and aids rapid weight loss. And that’s not the only weight loss elixir out there: Discover more details and drop two sizes with these 4 Teas That Melt Fat Fast.

First of all. Love all your articles; as a guy who has been lifting on and off since age 16 (am 29 now) your “7 years of lifting got me this” picture and the “I changed my reps/volume and here I am 2.5 years later” picture spoke directly to me. That “7 years got me this” picture is me and every non-pro-athlete friend I’ve had (down to the workouts/reps/sets); so the following rep/volume advice was magical for me. Coupled with your cited sources/studies…it was motivational to read a non-bro-science article with the personal pics included; I’m looking forward now to never having an “off” period again.

Hi Mike. Just wanted to say I’m glad I bought your book. Everything is clear and makes sense. I like how you use “science” to clear up all the bs out there. I’ve read and followed nutrition,article after article for the last two years. And it’s great to know getting fit doesn’t have to be a gruelling challenge. I’m glad people like you can help shine the light on things and get people out of these incorrect ways of thinking that food is your enemy. All those awful dieting tv shows saying don’t eat this and don’t eat that. It will make you fat. All that does is stress people into eating more than they need. Because they think it’s too tough to eat sensible. They don’t know that eating for body composition is what really matters. Your cold hard truth of how people need to eat for their goals is not so cold or hard. It’s a miracle for those that need to know they can still be human and eat the foods they love in moderation and still build an impressive physique. Sure. There always has to be a sacrifice in order to get ahead. But using science as you have makes getting there a whole lot easier and understandable and not really feeling the sacrifices at all along the way. Great job on your personal progress. Great job on your educated research. And great job on keeping up with it all and supporting the people who need your help!
Fasts lasting a day or two are unlikely to be dangerous for most healthy adults. But high-risk people, the elderly, anyone with a chronic disease, pregnant women, and children are advised against any type of fasting.
Tuna or to-not? That is the question. As a primo source of protein and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), canned light tuna is one of the best and most affordable fish for weight loss, especially from your belly! One study in the Journal of Lipid Research showed that omega 3 fatty acid supplementation had the profound ability to turn off abdominal fat genes. And while you’ll find two types of fatty acids in cold water fish and fish oils—DHA and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)—researchers say DHA can be 40 to 70 percent more effective than EPA at down-regulating fat genes in the abdomen, preventing belly fat cells from expanding in size. But what about the mercury? Mercury levels in tuna vary by species; generally speaking, the larger and leaner the fish, the higher the mercury level. Bluefin and albacore rank among the most toxic, according to a study in Biology Letters. But canned chunk light tuna, harvested from the smallest fish, is considered a “low mercury fish” and can–and should!–be enjoyed two to three times a week (or up to 12 ounces), according to the FDA’s most recent guidelines.
A palmful of potato chips won’t reduce your risk of certain types of cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and lower blood cholesterol, but research shows that the antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals in produce like a sweet peach, handful of berries, or a bowlful of bok choy may.
If you don’t have a say in the place of eating then make your choices sensibly. If you go to eat Chinese have rice rather than noodles. Order stir fried veggies instead of Manchurian. And control your proportions. Don’t take fried starters. Avoid those thick soups they are no good.
“Pair your treat with something that’s good for you. Want chips? Have a handful with veggies and guacamole, which is packed with good fats. In the mood for chocolate? Partner it with yogurt. That way, you’ll fill up on good stuff so you won’t devour tons of the less-healthy food.”

When it comes to weight loss, most of us are trapped in the vicious cycle of failed diet plans where we start dieting and exercising with great enthusiasm. Suddenly somewhere in the middle of the road we lose interest and determination and give up to the tempting call of butter paneer, biryani, daal makhani and rasmalai.
Our bodies need fat! While foods like avocados or butter might have a high calorie count, they’re filled with healthy fats our bodies crave and need to function properly. Plus, what would you rather eat: butter churned from a cow or a “butter-like substance” created in a lab?
Don’t worry, just by eating healthy by including superfoods and being active you can lose weight. While some superfoods like whole grains and dals are easy to incorporate but some other ones like seeds, millets, quinoa can get tricky.

You know carrots are good for you, but did you know that purple carrots are even better? “Purple carrots contain all of the phytochemicals found in orange carrots, and they also contain anthocyanins, which are potent antioxidants,” says Dr. Robert Rey, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, reality TV star of Dr. 90210, and author of Body by Rey.This sweet, crunchy snack is loaded with powerful anti-aging properties and protects against damage caused by oxidation (free radicals).
While the British Dietetics Association (BDA) promotes safe and sustainable weight loss of between 0.5 to 2lbs a week, dieters on certain weight loss programmes – such as the juicing diet, the GM diet and the New Atkins diet – report extreme weight loss of up to 15lbs in two weeks.
Michael, thank you so much for your articles. I have spent most of the day clicking on the various links in your articles and reading as much as I can. I already have your book Leaner, Stronger, Fitter for women and I am on week 6 of your weight lifting year long plan. I even got my three gym buddies to buy your book and they started this week with me. I also have your Fat Burning stack, but I haven’t started that yet because I am waiting to have my BF% tested via hydrostatic next week. As of my last BF% testing (one year ago) I was at 19% and I am tracking my macros fairly consistent. I would say about 80/20. I struggle to lose my belly and was debating about doing a cut; however, after reading RP’s book I was wondering if it would be better to do a mass/maintenance/cut since I haven’t really been massing prior to starting a cut. Would you recommend someone with my BF% to mass first and then cut or should I just bite the bullet and go ahead and cut since I haven’t done one yet? My goal is not weight loss it is to look lean and get stronger as I work through your one year strength building plan. Thank you.

Most of the dieters lose their reins at the end of the day and stuff themselves at dinner. But a controlled 300 cal dinner can keep things under control. It is best to finish up dinner at 8.30 PM at night because it allows the foods to be properly digested before going to sleep and the body can have a long gap of almost 11 hours before the next meal – breakfast. Some 300 cal dinner options for the 1200 calorie Indian diet are:
Is this Vegetarian GM Diet backed by science? It’s a question most of us ask ourselves. The fiber filled diet ensures that you keep your hunger pangs at bay, for a longer period. Vegetables and fruits are chock-a-block with all kinds of essential vitamins and minerals, and meet the nutritional requirements of the body.
Sample meals include two scrambled eggs at breakfast with sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes and peppers; old-fashioned oatmeal with raspberries and skim milk; a turkey sandwich on whole grain bread with lettuce and tomato; grilled flank steak with brown rice and a green salad; or broiled tilapia with steamed asparagus and quinoa.

Here are some parameters to measure your waistline.
