Omega-3 must be consumed through food or supplements, since the body cannot produce it by itself. High blood sugar produces insulin which makes it harder to burn fat, and according to the National Institute of Health, fish oils decrease blood sugar levels.
A study in Denmark showed that protein, particularly animal protein, was linked to significantly reduced risk of belly fat gain over a 5 year period. In a recent study, participants who combined a daily habit of 4-5 cups of green tea with a 25-minute sweat session, lost 2 more pounds than the non tea-drinking exercisers. It is scientifically showed that moderate amount of dark chocolate can reduce overall body fat. Long periods of sleep deprivation may cause several changes in hormonal release and metabolism, particularly increased hunger and appetite. I had MuscleNow for a couple of years sitting up on a shelf and collecting dust for most of that time. The results I have experienced really have proven to me the total effectiveness of the MuscleNow product!
I was a three-sport athlete on my way to a Division one school until I blew out my knee in the summer of my senior year, which resulted in seven knee surgeries, including Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and Lateral Meniscus reconstruction, infections, two torn tendons and right femoral nerve damage. Three years ago I was involved in a major car accident, which resulted in a herniated disc and annular tear in my back, but I found my way back to Fat Vanish regardless.
Because of the Fat Vanish Program, I not only am far healthier, but I also reversed my most recent health issue of High Blood Pressure, chronic anemia and a high glucose level (Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and Cancer run in my family.) Best of all, I have no High Blood Pressure and my anemia and allergies are almost non-existent.
With the grace of God, I followed Fat Vanish consistently, and have seen my body go from Flab to Fab!
I am Emma Powdrill, a freelance writer residing in the United Kingdom, and as the world's popularity soars into an overweight frenzy, we decided to try out some popular diets that claim to help you shed some unruly pounds.
One of the ones we decided to test was the Fat Vanish program written by Francesco Castano. No matter what I tried, I just couldn't lose the excess weight I had gained during my 3 pregnancies, so I was happy to be a tester for this particular diet. We put Amanda on the Fat Vanish program for 3 months, with thanks to the author who kindly donated the plan for our experiment. Although once Amanda started, she soon found the program really easy and was able to stick to it, even with her busy schedule as a mother of 3.
Amanda managed to lose an incredible 3 and a half stones (49 pounds) in the 3 months and is now a svelte size 12!
I have never felt sexier and healthier; I am so glad I took on the challenge offered to me. My full name is Alen Esmaelian and I live in Southern California in the city of Reseda, and I am 23 years old. I was the type of person that looked kind of muscular and big with my shirt on, but off, I just looked plain fat and sloppy.
I think I will stick with the fat loss program just a while longer so that I can achieve more definition, especially in the abdomen region.
I worked out with three trainers before and had tried many different theories, methods, and supplements. Once again, I would like to thank you again for your work, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to learn from you. Well to start I am a 27 year old male and have been slightly overweight or FAT if you prefer since I can remember. And what's the best of it, I benefit from a lot of your advises also in other areas of my life! After ten years of working out regularly and seeing less than satisfactory results, I spent three and half years devoting little time to fitness and put on fifty pounds of fat. I eventually become disgusted with the amount of body fat that I had gained and decided to give body building another shot. After these 9 weeks, I have received compliments from all of my friends and family and have even gotten paid from MuscleNow for friends that purchased the system because of the results that they noticed on my body. Thank you for the encouragement and for the incredibly effective system that you have provided.
After not even one year on your program I have increased my strength on all lifts by at least 50% and have lost over 13% body fat! I also want to note that these numbers do not fully do justice to my progress because I spent about 4 months on muscle building where I neglected my cardio (I now realize that was a huge mistake) and increased my caloric intake much too fast which put my measurements back where I had started after I had dropped 25lbs and lost 5 inches on my waist.
I am getting tired of dealing with the inconveniences that go along with my membership at my local gym, and I wanted to make sure that I found a piece of equipment that is smooth and will not sacrifice the results I have been able to achieve at my local gym. I received all of the pieces to my home gym (except one) and am really enjoying working out at home. Thank you so much Francesco, I feel like a new man and a new man that's getting younger and stronger by the day, what a great program You have really made a big difference in my training and I'm seeing the results quicker than I would have ever thought possible for someone 54 years old. All I have to provide is the body and the time and effort, the program is flawless, your money back gaurantee is safe, anyone who works the plan will get the results. After several years of enjoying the wonderful gain I had made in my physical health and in particular, the loss of all that weight and the great gains I had made on the MuscleNow program.
I had come to the point that I couldn't fit my clothes any longer due to the lack of structured eating and workout.
I am adding my email address here so that anyone even thinking about improving their life through better health, more vigor, and just plain looking better. The skinny friend who needed to gain muscle did and the others who needed to lose fat have dropped down to 9% body fat from approximately 22% body fat. The incredible thing about it is he did all of this while living abroad and didn't have a lot of access to weights so he improvised with his body weight and filling up bags with water, etc. I first saw Francesco’s website in 2001 and I wish I would have taken him up on his offer then because MuscleNOW is truly the program that I had been searching for ever since I walked into a gym at the age of 16. Once I was cleared to go again I emailed Francesco immediately and he modified the program to help ease my way back into the gym. Right now, I look the best I have, in my entire life, thanks to your program, and my determination. And the real fun thing is, I lost the first 40 lbs, without even doing cardio and only kinda half-heartedly working out. Hello, so far I've been following your program for 6 weeks and I've already lost 5 inches from my stomach, it's great.
First of all I want to thank you for your patience, support, advice and knowledge, you've been always there answering my questions. I would like to thank you very much for your wonderful program, all I have to say is you are the man.
PS: You can post my e-mail address, no problem with that, I'll do anything in order to support your program and help people in need of a good source of fat loss and muscle building knowledge.
I've purchased many different workout regimens and diet plans in the past, however, NONE of my previous purchases let achieve quite what I wanted.
I will also send you my gains in weight lifting - although I do not lift nearly as much as some of your other clients, I have increased even over this week and a half - for example - I have gone from using 45 lbs dumbells to 60 lb in my flat bench presses. I am a teacher and needed to buy some clothes for work - I am suddenly very hard to fit for sport coats - fit tight in the chest and arms and loose everywhere else - decided to wait before buying anything like that - but fit into most anything else though. Until just before my 50th birthday, I probably would’ve been voted the guy least likely to ever set foot in a gym. But reaching the half-century mark was a wake-up call, so I decided I’d better join a gym and get in shape. Then a trip to buy a suit led to a surprise when the tailor needed to let out the waist an inch and a half.
How is it going, I have been on your program for a few months and have seen tremendous results.
Since I have been on your program I have lost 9 inches of fat from around my waist, and I have increased the size of my chest, arms and legs with new muscle.
I never realized how important diet was or for that matter the proper training techniques you have taught me. However, by tuning into your body’s natural eat and sleep schedules, you can say good-bye to that stubborn belly fat. Eat halibut, walnuts, flax seeds, sardines, salmon, and brussels sprouts to get your daily intake of omega-3’s.
Increasing protein intake increases your metabolism as well as helping to maintain muscle mass.
When you consume protein, your body burns more calories than when you digest fats or carbs. Green tea contains compounds called catechins that “blast” adipose tissue by reviving the metabolism, increasing the release of fat from fat cells, and then accelerating the liver’s fat burning capacity. This is due to the flavonoids it contains, which are heart-healthy compounds that have important antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a big mistake to believe that we burn more calories while awake, for the reality is that the metabolic rate is down-regulated when you sleep less. I'll admit that I pulled it down off the shelf and put it to use on a few sporadic occasions with fantastic short term results, but then got tired of being disciplined and put it back for another day. It is the story of an average guy with a wife, kids, job, taking his obese and way out of shape body and turning it into that of a greek god, or at least as close as he can get in 4 months time.
I hope you get a chance to see my results so that they can inspire you to do what I did, which was to get off the couch and get to work! My most recent surgery just occurred last month, for reconstruction of my Left Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and I am still on Fatvanish keeping the weight off.
I was doing great on the Fat Vanish Life change until I had a major life hiccup and fell into some depression after a bad break-up. I restarted on the Fat Vanish program, at the time weighing a hefty 225lbs with a 45 inch waist. I have a very busy lifestyle caring for my family and needed something that was easy to follow, this seemed like just the remedy," says Amanda.
I would first like to start off by saying that your program has made a huge difference in my life this past year. So I decided to go on your fat loss program, and as a result of the rapid results I stayed on it until this day. I had just finished six weeks of the fat loss phase and have begun a new cycle of the muscle building phase.
I am sure that this is only the beginning and I will experience something similarly or even more amazing as I progress by following your program. In the past I had tried the latest high protein diet with not much success, I also tried the protein drinks, and the good old starvation diet. Well here I sit typing this and its been a little over 2 months and I now weigh 180 pounds that's a 50, that's right 50 pound loss and I feel great!! I read it almost in one breath, transferred program in excel, filled up the fridge with healthy food and started to work out and eat as written in your MuscleNow program.
I had tried spending two hours a day in the gym, several different diets, and countless supplements that promised to help me reach my muscle building goals. Everything is explained in a common sense fashion and can be understood by people looking to begin changing their bodies. Listening to doctors who wanted to give me pain pills and then operate on my spine was pretty detrimental to my health. If they ask for their money back it's their personal failure not your programs failure, you've done just what you promised, provided the needed diet and exercise program.
A couple of years ago I had a pretty serious health problem that required some pretty strong medications that really depleted my body in some very unpleasant ways. I asked my wife if she would try working out with me and eating the right way as Francesco had taught me to do.
Just as I told years ago, you have changed my life forever, and now that includes my wife's life as well. MuscleNow has given me the body and strength I have always desired and I finally feel great about myself. In 2007 I finally ordered the program and in my first three months achieved fantastic results.
My weight is now 170 lbs., for a total weight loss of 99 lbs since beginning your program!! I have seen awesome results i went from 207 to 164 in weight my waist from 36 to 31 in about 2 - 3 months. I've lost a total of over 60 lbs last year and this last 6 months, I have been building muscle. I mean, I worked out 5 days a week, as per your plan, but I never increased weight on anything, I just lifted the same amount of weight for a whole year. For the first month or two, I continued to think that I got ripped off, even though I did lose like 5 lbs. But, it is really ultimately up to the person reading it, to have the commitment and desire to change. Some would help me bulk up but not really lose fat, some would help me tone but end up costly me muscle.
Hold on, I thought, I’m going to the gym five days a week and he has to make the waistband larger?
I’d seen lots of other sites making promises, but something about his approach seemed genuine. He even builds flexibility into every area-- cardio, diet and strength training, so most people should be able to get what they need. I think that means you can’t build massive amounts of muscle while losing fat, but if your goal, like mine, is to tone up, then muscle and fat loss seem to go together nicely. The best part of the whole program is, if I have a question I can email you and usually get an answer in 24 hours. The key to losing weight and keeping it off is to learn the little tips that make losing weight easy.Everyone wishes to have slim waist line as well as for that they want to drop weight. Yet, there are scientifically proven ways to eliminate belly fat with not a single exercise!
I'm still getting compliments from the appearance changes that I've achieved with MuscleNow.
It finally took my deciding to make a documentary about health and fitness to really put MuscleNow to the test, and let me tell you, IT IS FANTASTIC!
I am proud to say that by changing my lifestyle to match the Fat Vanish recommendations, I lost 93 lbs and now have a 25-inch waist. Our tester Amanda Delallio is an average UK housewife whose weight soared after the birth of her 3 children. I originally purchased your program three years ago and after so many failed attempts, I was finally able to put all of your principles to use this past year. While my chest, arms and legs became massive and solid, I ended up with a 37" stomach.
After reading the material, I have been feeling that you, a sagacious and earnest trainer, have been always with me to motivate my workout. My body fat level kept lowering and I have finally achieved a level of definition, especially on my abs and arms, of which I have never dreamt before. I had to go clothes shopping and everything, My mother told me she hasn't seen me this thin since I was six! I will keep you posted with new photos of mine!:D Thank you again for all motivating words in your email. While I saw modest results from my efforts, I didn't feel that the return was adequate for the amount of time, money, and effort I was spending to achieve my desired physical improvements.
While I did actually lose about 30 pounds, I lost quite a bit of muscle in the process as well due to a lack of nutrition. While I had to make some changes in my schedule, diet and workout routine, the changes weren't overwhelming and after two weeks, I was following the program with ease. After following the fat loss phase for 9 weeks, I have lost 5 inches from my waist and can finally show off the six pack that I haven't had in over 6 years. The price of this program is a bargain to achieve the kind of life changing results that you will undoubtedly see if you follow the system as it is described. I've lost 117 pounds in 7 months now, I've lost at least 18" off my waist, I'm back to sleeping in a bed (before your program, I was sleeping in a recliner because my lower back won't let me lay in a bed). I read your web page and decided to go back to lifting weights, I hadn't lifted in at least twenty five years, but knew it was worth a try instead of surgery. I am more than happy with the results so far and can hardly wait to see my next set of pictures. I tripled my strength during the first cycle and my wife had the most amazing gains I have ever seen in ANYONE, man or woman. Within three months, once again I had great results and slimmed down to a size that was adequate for me to once again begin muscle building. The best part of the program for me is that Francesco gives free lifetime personal training via email. In a few more months I am going to compete in a bodybuilding competion, its great, I am so happy. I even had my mom just try the dieting part, without any working out, whatsoever, and she has lost 40 lbs. I know I should just listen to you and your advice, but I had to buy into the hype and learn the hard way.
I've been working out for about 15 years now and don't really have a problem putting on muscle but staying lean has always haunted me (never had more then a 4-pack). I wasn’t trying to get bulked and bigger really, just wanted to stay healthy and look more toned.
It wasn’t cheap, but with a money back guarantee, I decided there was very little risk, so I signed on. Before I got your program I was spending over $200.00 a month on weight gainers and other supplements in order to try and gain weight.
I am now on a path of fitness that will get me to that perfect vision of fitness that we all want to have! I started to gain weight because of not being on a sports team and not being active or taking care of my body, adding a total of 30 lbs in college. From a holistic medical standpoint, I also experienced side effects that were related to toxication of liver and kidney, and had a compromised immune system.
The program has not only changed my physique, and has encouraged me to keep attaining an increasingly higher and practical goal with patience and perseverance. And everyone else I run into can't believe it either, I am always getting compliments and everyone wants to know how I did it and I tell then all about the program and where to get it!
I even got enlarged the part about consistency and stick it to the wall in my working studio. I was searching the internet for a way to get back on track with gaining muscle while not putting on too much fat in the process.
While the program offers a fat loss and muscle building phase, I decided to follow the fat loss program since I still had some unwanted body fat that I wanted to get rid of. If you would have told me that such incredible results could be gained in just 9 weeks, I would have thought that you were crazy.
Yesterday I did 315 on the dead lift for the first time in probably thirty years, what a great feeling.
It's not easy and you have to do it for yourself from yourself, no one can give you the motivation it's got to come from you. Much to my great pleasure she not only tried it but she tried it with such vigor that I had to contact Francesco about SLOWING her muscle gain. Some were very over weight and needed to drop fat, and others were very skinny and needed muscle. Thanks to MuscleNOW, I was able to reach my long-term goal earlier this year of reaching my first year college body fat measurement of 13% (I was at 20% when I started)! For the most part it made the numbers on the scale go up, but it also brought my waist size to 40 inches. Losing weight can sometimes be easy if you follow simple tips, as long as done consistently. I've personally had alot of trainer's in my life (spending about $200 apiece) and have never gotten the gains in strength, health, and most importantly pride that I have with your programs. I can't thank you enough for what you have done to help me live healthier and happier (self-esteem). I found that a lot of steroid users who recommended ways to administer these products and workout programs were highly uneducated and misinformed. I had to have read the site on five or six different occasions and I finally decided I would try it.
I stumbled upon MuscleNow and after seeing the testimonials paired with the 90 day money back guarantee, I decided that I had nothing to lose and purchased the system. I achieved better results in 9 weeks than what I had achieved over the past year of working out and dieting. I feel that your brother was able to get us an exquisite deal on the equipment and I have no regrets regarding this purchase. You provide the plan that saves a lot of heartache and pain trying to find something that works. My wife took the the program with such determination that she was doing her sets to failure and fast reps, eating exactly what we were supposed to and making changes so fast I was amazed. I can not tell you how wonderful it is to have your mate sending the time and energy with you to improve yourselves and literally increase the years we will have to spend together. I was even able to lose a little bit more off the waist, even though I went on the muscle building portion of his program and am now able to fit into size 32 jeans! I have probably emailed Francesco more than he would like and never once did I ever receive any rude emails or bad service. What's more amazing is that I'm partially disabled with Muscular Dystrophy and diabetes, and your program has helped me to achieve amazing results despite my condition. At this particular time I was taking Muscle Milk (banana flavor) and thought that I was muscular (aka power lifter). By the time I had completed the first cycle, my weight had dropped to 147 lb and my waist to 28".
The result was that my body would entail an increasing dosage of these products and supplements, whereas the accompanying training was often so strenuous that attending a gym had gradually become a burden. It has certainly boosted up my immune system, and I would not hesitate to admit that it has even increased my hormonal level in a positive, constructive, and natural way. I must admit I was very skeptical, but I agreed the money back guarantee could not be beat. Now I'm at the point where I don't know if I need to lose more or what, I never thought I would have that problem, although I still need to do some additional toning etc..!!
If the muscle building phase works as effectively as the fat loss, I can't wait to see the transformation that will take place in a few weeks when I switch to muscle building.
I thought I knew what I was doing when it came to weight lifting, but you put it all together with a diet and detailed plans that work if I just put it into practice. The problem was that after the chemo I started feeling better, but I was as weak as a baby and it was a slow road to get back to the point that I could even think about returning to the program, I was playing catch up with all the things I had to let go for the two years I was so ill.
I am even planning on going back to college again, to get a second degree in Exercise Science, to become a personal trainer! I could start to see the all the muscle strands in my shoulders and arms flexing and twitching even when on my off days. You are correct (in MuscleNow you addressed this) once you get by the paranoia of gaining a little weight you will achieve more results. My chest and biceps, however, have grown an inch respectively, looking firmer and bigger as the fat level assuaged. I have also noticed a very affirmative energy within me that helps my life and creative work in general. So I received the program and I began implementing the information from the program around two months ago.
So to make a very long story short, the program is great, Francesco is a huge help with any questions and the first step is to order it and find out for yourself, if you follow the program you will lose that unwanted weight and you will feel better. Your workout routines and diet have made this possible for me in such a short period of time.
Once I got to 165 my lack patience got the better of me and prevented me from achieving more success. Needless to say, the cost of purchasing these supplements made one wonder if bodybuilding was equivalent to creating debts. Today, I went to my doctor, and he asked me about my weight, and I told him that I've lost 70 lbs.
After all, I’d suffered a nasty partial biceps tear from doing heavy bicep curls as my first exercise time after time, without even a warmup. By following the system and implementing all of the information I received, the weight literally started vanishing! That has made this all work, you've answered everything I've asked and it's pointed me in the right direction. I’m the biggest skeptic, but after having hit a plateau early in my training career, I needed help.
By that I mean pizza, cake, milkshakes, and eating at fast food restaurants on a daily basis. I purchased the FatVanish for my fiancée (whom has also gotten great results) and decided to start back on the MuscleNow track. I hope we can meet some day when I've gotten to the maintenance level and I can show you just how much your program has done for me. I finally found it and now I am going to use Francesco's program to take my physique to new heights. About 2 months ago, before I increased my calories to gain some muscle, I was down to 189 lbs.
Whenever I ran into people that said this I informed them of what plan I was on and told them a little bit about it. I still have a way to go to achieve my ideal physique, but now I am sure it will be possible with MuscleNOW! I can already see it in my minds eye, now it's just a matter of staying consistent till it's in the flesh.
I only gained 5 total pounds but if you take those numbers, I lost about 12-13 lb of fat and gained around 16-17 lbs of muscle. Here are some ways to weakening without dieting;Drink M ore WaterDrinking water will help you to shed your overweight. After the second week on the plan my pants started to loosen up and I was starting to get a real good feeling about this. His eyes bulged, and he said "Never before have I seen such an impressive biceps muscle on a Muscular Dystrophy Patient! I finally realized that the fat was not going to come off and stay off unless I made a lifestyle change. If you follow EVERYTHING he tells you to do, from the diet to the workout to the intensity, the results are AMAZING! Water hydrates body and offers energy through reducing muscle pain during physical activity. I want to thank my brother Phil (uses MuscleNow also) whom I talked to before starting (for inspiration) because I felt I was too far gone (aka FAT). Schedule Your Meals20 minutes after the alarm in your watch or cell phone, install and revel in a meal eat slowly during this time. We can not recognize the feeling of being full right after eating because chewing speed directly affects the hormones responsible for sensing fullness level. Greater variety tricks people into consuming more food and eating more vegetables and fruit is a great way to lose weight. And season with fresh lemon juice and herbs rather than drowning their goodness in high-fat sauces or dressings.Weight Loss IdeasChoose Whole GrainsWhole grains such as brown rice, barley, oats, buckwheat, and wheat grains also belong in your stealthy weight loss strategy. Whole grains are now in many products including waffles, pizza crust, English muffins, pasta, and soft white whole-wheat bread.Choose Green TeaDrinking green tea can also be a good weight loss strategy. Some studies claim that it can rev up the body’s calorie-burning engine temporarily, possibly with the action of phytochemicals called catechins.
