Does Microwaved Food Harm Your Health?

You may hear debates in the health world about the safety of microwaved food and it's health consequences...

So is microwaved food safe for you and your family, or can it have negative health consequences?  What about the long term health of your kids?

Well, if you think about it from just a simple logical perspective, our food was never meant in nature to be cooked by microwaves, so that will obviously detrimentally affect the chemistry and how it reacts inside your body.

Personally, I tossed my microwave in the garbage about 6 years ago and have never looked back. There's actually no need for it at all.

So today's article takes a look at some of the possible effects of eating microwaved food... this is a MUST read:


(if you read the article carefully, you'll even see that there is a possible link between microwaved food and increased abdominal fat)

Please email this link to all of your friends and family to help them avoid the possible health dangers of eating microwaved food.

The Triple M Method of Fat Loss

I have a REALLY good article for you today from my buddy Dr. K about the "Triple-M Method of Fat Loss".  Make sure to read about the 3M's that he talks about in the article.  It's very important.

Also, Dr K is running a special deal on his Double-Edged Fat Loss Program for 66%-off the regular price here: http://www.DoubleEdgeFatLoss.com

here's today's article by Dr K:

The Triple-M Method For Fat Loss

by Dr. Kareem F. Samhouri, CSCS, HFS
Neuro Metabolic Fat Loss Expert

I dare you.  I double dare you.

There are two competing theories for getting six pack abs and a really lean body.  These are:

1) Workout HARD and diet all the time

2) Workout SMART and eat great food

As you might have guessed, I prefer #2.  There’s a reason why it works better too.  It’s all about choosing the right exercises and the right foods for smart-body success.

By choosing exercises that produce an ‘after-burn effect,’ or EPOC (Exercise Post-Oxygen Consumption), you are essentially choosing the smarter path.  There are 3 main principles that govern what I teach - I like to refer to this as my 3M Method For Rapid Fat Loss:

Multi-Planar Movement + Movement Complexes + Muscle Balancing

Multi-Planar Movement (3D Movement):

Most people exercise in one plane or direction of movement, sometimes two.  For example, people often do pull ups, bicep curls, squats, lunges, etc.  These are all movements that are in the forward/backward plane of movement.  They do not move side to side or with rotation.

Without focusing on workouts that incorporate 3D Movement, it’s impossible not to build muscular imbalances, and your body will see this as artificial.  It will protect you from potential harm, and it will NOT respond by activating more muscles in daily life.  Without this it ultimately becomes more difficult to move towards a leaner body.

Movement Complexes:

Basically, it’s important that you link many exercises together without a rest break.  In doing so, you’re allowing your anaerobic system to become fatigued, while also simultaneously gaining an aerobic effect from your exercise program.  I recommend the following arrangement, all without resting the weight you’re using:

1.  Squat

2.  Push

3.  Lunge

4.  Pull

5.  Plank

The reason that I teach this method of movement complexes is because it alternates ‘pushing’ and ‘pulling’ muscles of both my upper and lower body while also exhausting my entire body before a rest break.  Finally, I always end with a ‘test’ on my core by doing some sort of crazy, super-advanced plank.  This basically tells my whether or not I have enough stability left to keep exercising, and it re-trains my nervous system to recruit centrally before the following Giant Set.

Muscle Balancing:

This is where things get really cool.  Did you know that Time Magazine consistently picks the best looking person in America by symmetry?  It’s true - human beings love symmetry, and your brain knows this.

Symmetry is important for proper nervous system communication from your brain to your muscles & joints.  It is important front to back, side to side, and top to bottom.  In other words, you can’t have a big torso and chicken legs, or your body will tell you to stop growing.  Likewise, you can’t have an enormous right biceps and mini left biceps.  Your brain will tell you to stop growing.

By muscle balancing, you are attempting to communicate with your nervous system and say "I’m ready for more strength."  Until you say so, it just won’t understand you.

Additionally, I like to incorporate Energy System Training.  By utilizing all 3 energy systems (ATP-PC, Anaerobic & Aerobic), you are stimulating a greater metabolic demand from your body with exercise.  This, in turn, results in greater caloric expenditure, and more effort from your body to replenish its energy source.  Each time your body works through this recovery phase, it continues to burn calories long after you leave the gym.

Basically, by working out with my Triple M Method For Rapid Fat Loss, you are going to work all 3 energy systems, automatically, and you are going to burn calories for days to come.  It’s such an amazing feeling the first time that you see these results.

But it’s an even better feeling when you realize that by applying these simple principles, you are actually going to get results faster and faster & faster.  It’s time to end the struggle with extreme dieting.  It’s time to conquer your body once and for all.  It’s time to overcome bad genes and work on a metabolic shift through proper exercise program design and implementation.

It’s time to arm YOU with my Triple-M Method For Rapid Fat Loss...

Get 6-pack abs without useless situps

I introduced you recently to my good friend Dr. Kareem (Dr. K), who is one of the top experts in the industry in Physical Therapy and Kinesiology.

Kareem even came out to visit me in Colorado for several days a couple months ago to hang out and do some skiing and other outdoor fun.

During his stay, I quickly realized that this guy knows more about exercise programming (as well as fixing injuries) than almost anybody I've known in the fitness industry.

I have an article today for you that Dr. K wanted to contribute (also be sure to check out Dr K's surprising story at the bottom)

The Fastest Way To Get A Six Pack Without Doing Any Sit-Ups
by Dr. Kareem F. Samhouri, CSCS, HFS
Metabolic Fat Loss & Fitness Expert

Sit-ups suck.

They're boring, they make it hard to breathe, and they are not nearly intense enough to get a great result. Think about it - when's the last time you couldn't get your 6th rep of a sit up?

They don't work muscular strength. They work muscular endurance (and over-shorten your abs) - most of us need more muscular strength, not endurance.

If muscular endurance were all we needed, then why does everyone on the Cat Walk of treadmills at your local gym look the same month after month after month?

Did you ever think about that before?

The same guys and gals running at 9mph, sweating their last drip of H2O away as they run at a continuous pace for 45 minutes never seem to change shape. They look the same in my gym as they do in yours. That's not because cardio is bad; that's because they have the wrong strategy in mind.

Do you have the right six pack abs strategy in mind?

Let's take Jenny Brown and Eric Foster for example:

Jenny Brown doesn't look very fat, but she's not happy with herself at all.
You see, she's never been really strong, and she's been struggling with her weight for years.

Her family is all heavier than she is. They don't seem to think there's an issue, and they keep eating her favorite foods in front of her. Each time she's tempted, she gets on an Elliptical or Treadmill and tries to 'burn off all the calories.'

In the first 3 weeks of doing this, she actually manages to lose half the weight she's been trying to lose for years - she loses 7.5 pounds - only another 7.5 to go.

3 more weeks go by, and now Jenny gets on the scale again - she weighs an extra pound.

"That's horrible," she thinks, as her pants all of the sudden feel tight and her shoulders slump. Now she decides her chest is saggy too, and she just feels ugly, but she keeps at it.

3 more weeks, down 2 pounds - she's now down 1 pound from her original amazing streak of wt loss.

Only thing, Jenny got fatter. She lost muscle. When we took her body fat measurement, now 9 weeks in, she went up by 2%. It's only a matter of time until Jenny puts all of her weight back on... while continuing to watch what she eats. This is a shame.

Ok, so how about Eric Foster?

Eric Foster is a former athlete, who used to run high school track and field. Since then, work got crazy (and so did drinking on the weekends), and he now weighs an extra 60 pounds.

He exercises for half the time Jenny does, but he basically only warms up,
then interval trains. Then he does a series of carefully planned out giant sets, challenging his body with new exercises every time he works out. Even though he feels uncoordinated half the time, and he isn't lifting all that much weight (in fact, because of his weight issue, he's basically down to mostly bodyweight without having the onset of low back pain.)

3 weeks go by - Eric's down 6 pounds - 54 pounds to go.

"Sweet" he says to himself, "I'm going to hit my goal in another 9 weeks.
I'll be there before summer."

3 more weeks go by, now he's down 12 pounds. "On pace," he says to himself.

3 more weeks go by (now on week 9), and he decides to step on the scale during a flex-break from staring at himself in the mirror.

"Oh my God," he exclaims - "I'm down another 9 pounds - how could this be?"

So Eric flew off to the local gym and had his body fat assessed - down 4%!

I know why Eric's down 9 more pounds & lost 4% body fat. He built muscle. That muscle kicked his metabolism into over drive, and his body started craving more food. He also chose exercises that helped 'organize' his nervous system & recruit more muscle. He fed his body, as most former athletes know to do, and it burned up all the calories and then some.

Eric's muscle raised his metabolism.

The dynamic exercise routine fooled Eric's body into thinking he needed more muscle to cope with "the challenging new environment" he lived in.

Jenny's plain old, boring exercise routine taught her body to cope with this increased demand by lowering her heart rate and blood pressure (both good things, granted) so she could last longer.

Obviously, Eric's body changed more and his program was more effective for fat loss.

The Moral Of The Story:

Eric just needed to know how to speak 'Neuro' and he was all set. Once he wasn't speaking gibberish to his body anymore, and he learned to have a conversation, the work was already done for him.

So what's the purpose of exercising so much if you're not going to look amazing after all that sweat and hard work?

In Double Edged Fat Loss, I teach you how to Exercise Less, Benefit More.

I hope you'll join me below for an Unusual Fat Loss Story as I unveil a story that puts Jenny & Eric's story to shame. As it turned out, it had nothing to do with Eric 'being a boy,' did it?

More antioxidants than coffee?

You may already know that coffee is actually a pretty good source of antioxidants. But did you know that coffee producers routinely throw out one of the MOST nutritious parts of the coffee bean?

You'll see what this is in the article below.

This article below was done by my partners at Prograde Nutrition (and nutrition researcher Jayson Hunter).

I thought it was interesting to note that conventional roasting of coffee destroys some of the important nutrients such as mannans and aribinogalactans.

But you can still benefit from these nutrients, as well as another even more potent source of antioxidants that is part of the coffee plant...


Personally, I only drink coffee once or twice a week, because I don't want to become addicted to the caffeine (instead I choose various teas which have much lower caffeine content), so this is actually how I choose to benefit from some of the most potent antioxidants in coffee (even more antioxidants than several cups of coffee) without getting overdosed on caffeine.

Ok, I've gotta run... off to the gym to get a good workout in now!

My fat burning lunch & crazy workout circuits

I'm writing you today's newsletter from beautiful scenic Telluride, CO.

I've been on a skiing road trip with a couple buddies this week, and right now I'm sitting near a fire in the lodge looking out at some of the most spectacular Rocky mountain views I've ever seen.

Probably the only better views I've ever seen are in Silverton, CO where we're heading later today. Silverton easily has some of the most rugged, extreme, beautiful mountains I've ever seen anywhere in the world (although the views in the Andes of Chile when I was there 2 years ago were pretty impressive too!)

This week has been some extreme workouts for me and my friends as we've been doing some hardcore hikes to 12,000-foot and 13,000-foot peaks and skiing hard at several different mountains in southwest Colorado.

When you're traveling, it's not always easy to find the healthiest meal options, but I try to do my best.

I just finished lunch here in Telluride and it was pretty good, and fairly healthy too:

-A pork tenderloin sandwich (removed the top half of the bun to reduce the refined wheat empty carbs)
-A mixed greens salad with vinegar and olive oil
-An entire avocado (I needed the extra calories and healthy fat from all of this hard exercise this week)
-An unsweetened green-white tea

A pretty healthy and balanced meal considering it's a travel meal.

** Crazy workout circuits:

Normally you would have to enter your email address to get access to these workouts and bonus gifts, but my good friend Dr. K (one of the best up and coming workout experts in this industry and someone who has become of good friend of mine over the past year or two) is generously allowing my readers to access these workout videos at this page below...



I'll be back in a few days with more Lean-Body Secrets. Now it's time to get back to enjoying my skiing trip!
