Stubborn Fat Solution Patch 1.1

Stubborn Fat Solution Patch1.1 Cover

Stubborn Fat Solution Patch1.1 CoverSo last week, I mentioned that I had actually started (gasp) writing again and that, out of a larger project, I had revisited an old project and finished a small booklet.

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.


New Product Bundles

Just for ease of use, I wanted to collect all of the new product bundles (and my new book) onto one page so folks can have an easier time finding it.  I’ve also got some new Affiliate Opportunities (through Clickbank) described at the bottom of the page.


The Complete Rapid Fat Loss Bundle
If you hadn’t guessed by the title, those two books are The Rapid Fat Loss Handbook and my Guide to Flexible Dieting.  The combination of the two provides a one-two punch to first take off the weight quickly (which research shows that, if done properly, is actually superior to slower approaches) and then keep it off.  Of course, Rapid Fat Loss always incorporated Flexible Dieting principles but the information in Rapid Fat Loss was expanded greatly in A Guide to Flexible Dieting.  Here are some pretty pictures and more about the products.

The Rapid Fat Loss Handbook – This is the core diet and exercise program manual detailing the background diet along with everything you need do know to implement it. The book is packed with information on general nutrition and fat loss along with complete instructions on how to follow the diet, when to take breaks, how to move to maintenance when the diet is over along with many other topics.

An Online Calculator (w/instructional PDF): This calculator will take your current stats and generate a sample diet along with some sample meals automatically. This makes setting up the Rapid Fat Loss diet a breeze. It can also be used to set up the Extreme Rapid Fat Loss approach (described below).

The Home Exercise Handbook – Showing you basic exercises that can be done at home with no equipment (at most you’ll need two empty milk jugs filled with water or sand). The book discusses the basics of exercise and gives sample programs along with exercises ranging from beginner to intermediate to advanced.


New Ultimate Diet 2.0 and Stubborn Fat Loss Solution Package

So since I seem intent on making the Two-A-Day Training for the Weight Room Series take a month to complete (even longer than usual for a series this short), I’m now going to tell you about a new combination product of mine.  I call it the Ultimate Leanness Package and it includes two of my books aimed at helping folks reach the lowest levels of human leanness.   What can I say, I have bills to pay.  Lol.


Updated Resources Page

So folks often ask me what kinds of things I personally use or recommend.  And while I’ve had my resources page hidden somewhere on my site, it’s needed a long overdue update.  One site had changed and one no longer existed.  And since I actually had a reason to update it (a new addition, right at the top), I wanted to put it in front of everybody’s face.

Basically, the stuff on this page is stuff I personally vouch for.  I don’t get kickbacks or affiliate payouts from ANY of it (I occasionally get a free sample but that’s about it).  Basically I don’t make money if you check out these companies.  They are on here because I believe in them.  So go give them your money.


One question I get asked fairly often is what resources I think highly of or believe in myself.  Both in terms of my own reading and learning materials or what products I actually use.  On this page, I’ve listed products that I personally either use (in terms of some of the supplement companies I buy from), read (websites, etc.) or simply think are good enough products to highly recommend.

Mind you, such lists as these are never complete and I will be adding to this list over time/as I find new resources or simply remember old good ones that I forgot to put up here.

Dr. Drew Pinsky and Mike Catherwood Podcast

Last week, I had the absolute honor of doing a podcast with one of my long-term heroes, Dr. Drew Pinsky of Loveline Fame.  I’ve been listening to Dr. Drew since I was in college, as far back as 1990 and can’t even begin to express how much I’ve learned from him over the past 20 years.

Having the opportunity to be on his show (with his current co-host Mike Catherwood) was an experience I can’t even begin to describe.  Both Dr. Drew and Mike are lifters themselves (into pushing heavy iron) and I tried to keep my drooling fanboyness to a minimum (only a few minutes) so that we could actually discuss stuff.   I probably could have gushed about Dr. Drew and how much I’ve learned from him for the entire hour given the chance.

We mainly just talked about some general stuff related to training and diet (with a brief touch on the anti-aging stuff; not my area of expertise) and I don’t know that regular readers will hear anything that they haven’t heard before.  It was still a great talk and I thank both Dr. Drew and Mike for the opportunity to be on the show.  They talked about having me back to, as Dr. Drew put it ‘get into the weeds’ about details and I can’t wait.

In any case, the podcast is now finally available for listen/download here.

It should also be available on Itunes in the podcast section but I don’t think I can link out to that.

I want to thank both Mike Catherwood and Dr. Drew for the opportunity to be on the show.   And, more generally I’d thank Dr. Drew for being a voice of reason and fact in a world beset by bullshit.  He’s out there making a difference, trying to help people by providing good information in a factual and understandable way.  Somehow, I can get behind that.
