Booklet is not an exaggeration and this is fairly short, kind of in the spirit of Dan Duchaine’s old stuff. I’ve titled it The Stubborn Fat Solution Patch 1.1 (because I am a nerd) although I also considered an even worse title.
Now, in the original Stubborn Fat Solution I discussed every possible topic regarding fat and stubborn fat in fairly extended (some would say excruciating) detail along with giving dietary, supplement and training protocols made to specifically deal with the problem of stubborn fat (men’s low-ab and back fat, women’s hip and thigh fat).
However there was one section that I sort of glossed over, mainly due to a dearth of research and general inability to do anything with it. That section dealt with Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP), a hormone released (oddly) from the heart that had been found to represent an entirely new fat mobilizing pathway.
I mentioned it for completeness, but because I hadn’t found any particularly useful way of manipulating it, I didn’t do more than that. A bit later, I’d come across research showing that ANP could be manipulated but it was a drug based solution. This project was actually started years ago but I put it away for some reason. I’m glad that I did.
This year (2015), I started rewriting one of my books and then that project took on a life of it’s own. But in the process of researching, I came across new literature on ANP that made me want to visit this previously unfinished project.
That’s why I’m glad I didn’t finish it originally; most of the cool research has only come out recently and I’m far better able to discuss the topic as well as how we can put this to use.
