Quick Fact: Certain toxins in your food can affect the way you process fat. This includes: pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, plastics and solvents.

Most people think like this guy who says, “All you have to do is eat right and exercise. You don’t need a lot of scientific data to make it work.”

That’s partially true. If you don’t get any sleep, it won’t matter how much you exercise or eat right, you still won’t lose the weight and you certainly won’t keep it off.

If you weigh yourself after exercising you won’t see a difference on the scale. But, once you wake up in the morning in weigh yourself, you will see a difference. Why is that?

Exercise triggers the fat burning hormone which only work while you are in a deep sleep cycle.

You have to get at least 7 hours of sleep.


What Types of Food Will Help You Sleep Better?

As you get older you get less and less sleep. What you want to do is saturate your body with potassium that is naturally in foods, this will relax you.

Without potassium you’re going to be on edge, people are going to irritate you, you’re going to be nervous and restless. Foods like kale would do great to help you sleep.


How to Stick to the Weight Loss Program?

If you tell someone what to do without giving them any background, it’s tough. If the person gets the right plan they will stick with it. But, if they get the wrong plan that doesn’t work they will start losing willpower and quit.

It’s tough to stick to a program where you are getting information on what to do but you are not getting the data on why you need to do it. This is one of the reasons why it’s good to first know your body type and find out what type of exercise and food you need for that body type to get healthy and lose weight.

This system will help you stay on your weight loss program because you will see results.


How to Get Rid of Belly Fat?

To get your belly flat you have to get to the thing that is causing it. It’s not the lack of abdominal muscle, it is a hormone called cortisol - it’s too high and it’s a stress hormone.

You will have to do what you can to lower your stress level like sleeping, eating certain foods and exercise for your body type.
