When I was in my 20s and early 30s, fat wasn’t an issue, I was still serving in the Royal Marines and I trained hard and ate what I liked and it made no difference to my bodyfat at all. I used a variety of training protocols from endurance work to speed work and HIIT.
However, I was convinced that the answer to losing stubborn fat was Interval Training (also known as HIIT—High Intensity Interval Training) because it worked so well. That was until I found out about an interesting, unique and very much unknown adaptation and discovered that I could, in fact, be VERY WRONG.
Although interval training works and is very effective for people in their 20s and 30s…It could be one of the ROOT causes for weight loss plateaus for people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s because it can cause SEVERE Adrenal Fatigue when it’s abused.
After researching dozens of scientific papers and journals I discovered a different training protocol, something that was a new adaptation from my previous exercise and traditional interval training methods.
It is a secret that’s been well hidden in a scientific private member’s only forum. This research was published in several prestigious scientific journals yet it is relatively unknown and is so effective that I feel it is unfair not to share it with you.
The research concluded there are only 3 metabolic “zones” that people over 40 need to enter, and, when these “zones” are entered IN ORDER, it creates a HUGELY POWERFUL metabolic punch that launches your body’s hormones back to their youthful state and ultimately helping you burn more fat, which becomes inherently more difficult the older you get.
The Three Zones are as follows:
Zone #1: FLATLINES your #1 fat storage hormone
Without entering zone #1 your body will NEVER release stubborn fat. This “primes” your metabolic system to LET GO of “trapped” fat cells in LESS than 5 minutes.
Zone #2: Extracts and “releases” your most stubborn fat cells
By avoiding regular exercise routines and replacing it with simple movement patterns that are specifically designed for your age… you can REAWAKEN your “youth” hormones opening the gateway for your body to release “trapped” fat cells in as little as 20-30 seconds.
Zone #3: STOPS “fat defense”
This is a mechanism by which your body will RESTORE stubborn fat cells that are present in your blood stream.
As long as you follow the first 2 steps properly, the minute your body enters zone 3 your most stubborn fat cells are INCINERATED and permanently removed from your body.
The reason this is so effective for middle aged and older people is because it works in tandem with the dramatic “Hormonal Shift” your body goes through when you’re in your 40s, 50s and 60s.
Here’s some of the simple science behind why this works so well for people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, starting with Zone #1.
Zone #1: PRIMER
In order for your body to LET GO of “trapped” fat cells you must FLATLINE your body’s #1 fat storage hormone – insulin. When insulin is elevated your body simply cannot use stored fat as energy.
It simply primes your hormones so that fat is your FIRST source of energy, instead of being your last.
There are a few different ways you can enter Zone #1
Primer #1: Take a walk! By walking for 5 to 10 minutes before you enter Zone #2 you’ll stabilise insulin allowing your body access to stubborn fat cells.
Primer #2: Fasting. If you eat before exercise you increase insulin, which means your body will be so busy using energy from digesting food (and using the food as fuel) that all your fat cells will be spared INSTEAD of “burned”.
Fasting before you exercise will keep insulin low, allowing your body to release the “youth” hormones responsible for releasing stubborn fat cells.
Primer #3: Avoid eating carbohydrates and sugars by themselves. Whenever you snack on certain ripe fruits, starches, or sugars you send insulin SOARING preventing your body from using fat as a fuel source and can lead you to becoming hypoglycaemic.
When you use one, or all three, of these metabolic “primers” your body will be perfectly poised to enter Zone #2, which EXTRACTS stubborn fat cells so they can be burned off and flushed out of your body.
ZONE #2: RELEASE
Turns Back on Your Youth Hormones to INSTANTLY Release “Trapped” Fat Cells (burns fat for up to 48 hours.)
Zone 2 uses three specific movements strategically designed for people over 40 to turn back ON their Youth Hormones and shrink stubborn fat cells.
MOVEMENT #1: A simple 20-second trick that releases the ONE and ONLY fat loss hormone responsible for breaking apart “trapped” fat cells so they can be burned off and permanently REMOVED from your body—making your belly flatter day by day.
When you were in your 20s and 30s you didn’t need this hormone to lose fat… but now that you’re over 40, this 20-second metabolic trick is your MISSING LINK to faster fat loss… it has also been shown to burn fat and calories for up to 48 hours AFTER using it.
MOVEMENT #2: A simple 30-second movement that increases your “youth hormones” up to 450% making you look years younger in just a few short weeks. This movement will put a spring in your step—increasing your all day energy and accelerating your fat loss even further.
MOVEMENT #3: A 60-second fat burning shortcut that is THE fastest way to drain your body of unwanted energy reserves so you can get leaner—FASTER.
Although it’s typically unheard of—using this movement is the only way to know with certainty that you’ll NEVER hit a weight loss plateau again.
Remember, if you’re over 40 you must exercise LESS. By avoiding regular exercise and replacing it with these 3 simple movement patterns, which are specifically designed for your age… you can Kickstart your “youth” hormones opening the floodgates for your body to release “trapped” fat cells in as little as 20-60 seconds.
However, WITHOUT entering Zone 3 you’ll suffer from “fat defense”; a mechanism by which your body RESTORES stubborn fat cells that are present in your blood stream when you’re in your 40s, 50s, and 60s.
PROBLEM SOLVED: The solution is found below the minute your body enters Zone 3…
ZONE #3: BURN
“Burns Off” and Kicks OUT Over 40 Stubborn Fat Cells (making your body look FLATTER and leaner in only 12 minutes per day!)
Zone 3 is the foundation to ensure ALL 3 zones work together synergistically.
Although Zones one and two are perfectly customised for people over 40 to make their midsection smaller and tighter in only 12 minutes per day… without Zone three they could be nothing but a waste of time.
Here are the 3 secrets you’ll learn to “burn off” and FLUSH OUT stubborn fat cells, permanently REMOVING unwanted fat and toning up your “trouble spots”.
Top Tip #1: The one and only movement that protects and shields your body from “fat defense” by STOPPING your metabolism from restoring stubborn fat cells when you’re in your 40s, 50, or 60s.
Top Tip #2: The long forgotten “old school” trick used by Fitness Models and Professional Bodybuilders to whittle away their last few pounds of stubborn fat making their skin look tighter in their midsection and love handles look tighter.
And it works best if you’re over 40. Because of your current hormonal state, you are more likely to have stubborn fat cells that are “trapped” inside your trouble spots—so they can’t get out.
Top Tip: The 2 minute exercise secret that finishes off burning and removing your body’s over 40 stubborn fat cells so you can SEE your body get flatter and leaner in as little as 7 days from now.
It’s a FACT:
After You Turn 40, Regular Exercise and Cardio Makes You Fat, Tired, Unhappy and Old
1) Regular Exercise SHUTS OFF Your #1 Fat Burning Gland (Thyroid) Making You GAIN Weight Around Your Stomach, Hips, and Thighs
A study published in the prestigious European Journal of Applied Physiology, concluded that regular exercise makes you GAIN weight around your stomach, hips and thighs because it SHUTS OFF your body’s #1 fat burning gland—your thyroid.
2) Regular Exercise INCREASES Your Belly Fat Hormone
A 2011 published study shows that regular exercise increases the stress hormone Cortisol, which is associated with heart disease, cancer and visceral belly fat (the most DEADLY kind of body fat).
3) Regular Exercise INCREASES Cravings and Hunger
A 2008 published study shows that people over 40 who use regular exercise end up eating 100 calories MORE than they just burned off, making it nearly impossible to keep your body in a fat burning calorie deficit.
4) Regular Exercise Makes You Old And Ages Your Body FASTER
A 2010 published study shows that regular exercise will FLOOD your body FULL of free radicals… the molecules that attack your cells, causing rapid aging inside your body, damaging your skin, eventually making you look years older than you should.
I am finalising a brand new program based on these principles which will be available online. There is an early bird offer to kick start the new program so keep your eyes peeled for it to take advantage of this new system and the fantastically reduced early bird price
