1 chemical that might be making you gain fat

See this 27-Second Daily Fat-Burning Trick

As you know from my past newsletters, I try to cover every topic that may be holding you back from getting the body you want... sometimes it's nutrition and superfoods, sometimes exercise-related topics, sometimes motivation. But...

Today, I want to point out a specific factor that many people are overlooking, and it could be FORCING your body to hold onto stubborn bodyfat...

-This is not about calories or carbs
-This is not about a specific workout
-This is not about a supplement or newfangled gimmickdiet's about something called Neuropeptide Y (NPY)

A 1995 study found that 1 of the 4 major underlying factors causing obesity was high levels of NPY. It also found that NPY can stimulate your body to increase cravings and appetite, hence further contributing to weight gain.

NPY can even stimulate your body to increase the size AND number of fat cells... Now that's scary!

So what triggers your body to produce NPY, hence making you fatter?


I know, I've heard the lecture about stress a gazillion times by now...

and I've talked in my newsletters in the past and in my book about possible ways to help you reduce stress to help reduce the nasty chemical reactions inside your body that stress causes.

But today I have a really unique way that's very powerful in battling stress and helping you to lose excess body fat caused by stress and NPY...

it's actually an audio technique, and I even started using this myself about 2 years ago.

It's a CD that uses a technology called "Holosync", and it can help you to induce stress-busting meditation levels similar to that of a Zen Monk... but without the typical time commitment of normal meditation.

You can get a Free demo CD of this technology at this page

I don't get a dime by recommending this... it's just something that I've used myself, and I think it's a fairly fascinating technology. I talked directly with the company to make sure they were cool with me recommending this in my newsletter.

They were obviously excited to have me recommend their audio CDs, and they even went ahead and set up that page for you to get a free demo to try it out.

Besides reducing stress and levels of NPY, and hence, helping you to get leaner... the Holosync audio technology can also:
  • Improve your creativity, intelligence, and mental functioning
  • It creates healing of emotional traumas and self-imposed limitations forever, even for people who have been unsuccessful with other methods
  • It can actually slow the aging process by stimulating the production of many neurochemicals and other substances in the body that are associated with longevity, well-being, and better health
  • It can dramatically raise your threshold for stress and cause stress-induced dysfunctional feelings and behaviors (including anger, depression, fear, anxiety, substance abuse, and many others) to fall away
  • It can increase your self-awareness, inner peace, and happiness, as well as your ability to connect with other people and create successful relationships
Sounds pretty exciting huh! It's not surprising since we already know that all success in every area of life originates in your brain, and that includes getting your best body.

Chocolate and red wine without the calories?

There's been a lot of hype over the past couple years about foods such as chocolate, red wine, and green tea and the antioxidant and anti-aging benefits of all 3 of them.

However, there are detriments too as chocolate is very calorically dense, and red wine contains the alcohol as well as a fair dose of calories itself. I can't say there's any detriments to unsweetened green tea.

The solution to these detriments is usually simply to eat chocolate and drink red wine in small doses. I've always said that one of my tricks to controlling my sweet tooth is to have 1 small square of super-dark chocolate after my meals.

I also usually try to stick to only 1-2 glasses of wine just a couple times a week.

However, by sticking to small doses, you minimize the benefits of the powerful antioxidants in red wine and chocolate.


Chocolate & Red Wine Benefits WITHOUT the Calories & Alcohol?

What if there was a way to get MUCH higher doses of the active antioxidants in chocolate and red wine, but without the calories and alcohol?

One problem I've always read about with the research behind resveratrol is that you'd have to drink gallons upon gallons of red wine daily to get enough resveratrol to have significant benefits. This amount of alcohol would obviously kill someone, plus be a boatload of calories.

Turns out there IS a way to benefit from high doses of the active ingredients in chocolate and red wine but without the calories and alcohol!

As you know from most of my past writings, I'm VERY skeptical about most supplements, and there are only a few that I actually take myself and recommend to my readers.

My friend Buck (no, not Uncle Buck!) owns a very reputable supplement company... and YES, Buck IS a good friend of mine... we became good friends on a couple adventure trips I've gone with him over the past 2 years.

When I recommend a product from another company, and I say that they are a friend of mine, I actually DO mean it. After all, I usually only recommend products from people I know and trust, or that I've used myself and had a good experience with.

Well, Buck has a great product that uses a blend of resveratrol (the equivalent resveratrol per serving of approx 50 Liters of Pinot Noir!), a cocoa extract, a green tea extract, as well as L-carnosine, alpha lipoic acid, and a few others...

check it out --

Now although I've talked trash in the past about so many of these bogus supplement companies that are using this type of "free trial" model (many of them are very shady companies that aren't honest about their label claims), I do know personally that Buck's company is honest and will take care of you.

You can opt to take the trial and get on a monthly shipping plan, or you can opt to just purchase a few bottles up front and see how you like them.

Personally, I got a 6-month supply to stock up and I've been using them daily for about 2 months now.
