With a disturbing amount of individuals overweight nowadays, learning how to burn fat and stay in shape is more important than it’s ever been. But the thing is knowing what to do to achieve this can be very confusing. You need to figure out how to exercise. Then, you need to adopt a healthy diet. This sounds simple, but with so much misinformation out there it is actually very confusing for many people.
To fight this, many weight loss authors have published information products that claim to teach you the fastest and easiest way to burn off as much fat as you want. A very popular one is called The Truth About Six Pack Abs (by author Mike Geary) during the many years it has been available, it has constantly grown in popularity. But popularity isn’t always a good indication of quality. In this article, we look at how well the tactics in this ebook work.
Dieting, Truth About Abs style
If you decide to read through The Truth About Abs, you’ll quickly notice that there is a strong emphasis put on eating healthy, whole foods. The book does a great job sorting out the bad foods from the healthy ones. This makes it a great resource for those looking to learn what foods to eat and which ones to avoid entirely.
The author Mike Geary states in his book that the healthier your body is the easier it is to burn off fat. This means that if you have an excess of fat and are having a very hard time getting rid of it, that probably means that your health could be better. He also states that controlling what goes into your body is the fastest way to regain your health and therefore get rid of some extra weight. The more natural and less processed the foods you put into your body are, the healthier you will ultimately be.
In his book The Truth About Abs, Mike debunks a lot of myths surrounding the amounts of macronutrients people should be eating every day (macronutrients are things like carbohydrates, proteins and dietary fats). For example, people who read this book have a much better understanding of dietary fats. The fact is that eating the right healthy fats actually helps to burn off body fat a whole lot faster. This is obviously counter intuitive but Mike Geary explains it in a way that everybody can understand.
Learning to exercise properly
It is true that getting lean and burning off fat can be achieved through dieting alone. However, toning your muscles to give them that defined look does require regular exercise. Eating healthy alone won’t tone your muscles. In this section of his book, Mike does a great job of explaining and clearing up many of the myths that are commonly believed. Reading through this section is a great way to understand what types of exercises to do and which ones to avoid.
According to this section of the book, burning fat and building some muscle mass go hand in hand and the fastest way to build some muscle and get stronger is to perform full body exercises. The advantages these exercises have are many which stands in contrast to other more isolated exercises. Of course, Mike provides a list of which exercises to perform as well as some sample workouts to follow.
The topic of cardio is also explored at great length. Turns out, long boring cardio isn’t even close to being the fastest way to burn off fat and it can even bring your fat burning efforts to a complete stop if it isn’t performed correctly. Of course, used correctly it can help to accelerate the fat burning process but it should never be used as the basis of the exercise regimen.
Finally, Mike Geary explores all the myths surrounding the topic of abdominal exercises. He goes on to explain how even if you do thousands of sit-ups and crunches every day you still won’t get a six pack if there is a layer of fat covering your mid-section. The fat hides the abs no matter how well defined they are.
The principles laid out in Mike Geary’s The Truth About Six Pack Abs have been used by hundreds of people the world over to burn fat and get into the best shape of their lives. The reason is that this book doesn’t center itself on gimmick exercise machines of loophole diets. Instead it is based on sound scientific principles that come from the way humans have evolved over millions of years. This program lays out both how humans were designed to eat and move in a way that optimizes the metabolism. This program works, there is no doubt about it and you’ll even have a hard time finding a better, more effective program out there.
