The term ‘how to lose belly fat’ is a hot topic and here’s why: we all store fat on our bellies and it sucks.
But it’s for a good reason. As humans, we evolved over a period of time where there were periods of feasting and periods of fasting. This meant that in order to survive, we had to be really good at storing energy, otherwise we’d die. Fat is stored on our bodies (and bellies) because of an intake that exceeds our output.
That simply means when we take in more energy through food than we are burning, it’s going to be stored for later. Basically, we store fat because it’s an evolutionary advantage for survival.

At the end, I’ve included some guides (pulled directly from my 4D Fat Loss Course) to help you make better decisions with your drinking and dieting efforts this year. [Read more…]
A reader wrote to me because he heard eating fat in a post workout meal was bad and wondered if the post-workout meal should be fat-free.
This is a great question because it’s something that’s been talked about for years and for the longest time, the suggestion was to limit fat intake post training to allow for a quicker absorption of nutrients.
While this advice is not necessarily bad, it’s not the most up-to-date, and it might not be that practical for some people who can’t eat as frequently, or make a quick low-fat meal after their training sessions.
To better understand this idea, let’s look at digestion. [Read more…]
