First, the Basics

Fact: 95% of all the people who go on a conventional diet gain back all the weight they lost. Some even end up fatter. They didn’t know that most weight loss diets end up “cannibalizing” their own muscle and slowing down their metabolism. If you’ve ever hit a “plateau” in you diet, that’s what happened. Trying to trick your body into burning body fat without eating fat burner food and working with your metabolism is a recipe for failure.

Many of the people who’ve “hit the wall” when trying to lose body fat turn to drugs or supplements to get past the plateau. Drugs have side effects and “97% of all supplements are a total waste of money”, according to one expert. Trying to fool a metabolic and hormonal system that’s the result of thousands of years of evolution is pointless. You need to work with it, not against it. You can learn to focus on the food you eat, when you eat it and what else is needed.

Simply put, fat burner food burns more calories than it supplies when you digest it. It heats up your body’s furnace (increases your metabolism) so it burns more fuel (calories). In fact, just by drinking ice cold water, you turn up your body’s heat engine and burn calories just to re-warm yourself. I learned that trick years ago, working in a cold environment. Ice cold water will warm you up faster than hot coffee or a shot of brandy!

To jump start any diet, try drinking at least 8 glasses of ice-cold water a day. Your body's own "thermostat" will turn up your furnace to rewarm you and burn calories with no extra effort. No drugs, no supplements -- just ice-cold water!

When you learn which foods burn fat and which foods turn to fat (did you know, one expert claims lettuce is fattening!), losing body fat becomes easy and effortless. All you have to do is stick to your plan, do regular cardio exercise and get the right amount of sleep. Your body will take care of the rest!
