Boost Your Metabolism by Holiday Feasting?

With Thanksgiving feasts and other holiday gatherings coming up soon, you might think that you have to surrender your body to automatically gaining LOADS of body fat this holiday season.

But alas... you'd be mistaken!

In fact, there is a scientifically proven way to manipulate your hormonal response to these holiday feasts to actually get LEANER this holiday season and INCREASE your metabolic rate (if you follow some specific techniques...otherwise, you'll just gain fat like usual)

This concept is the entire basis of my colleague Joel Marion's Cheat Your Way Thin System - Holiday Edition

For Thanksgiving and the rest of this holiday season, the truth is that you DON'T have to give up your desserts, your glorious stuffing and mashed potatoes, your delicious pumpkin pie and ice cream, your holiday egg nog, and all of the other party treats you'll be tempted with...

(I know I certainly don't give any of that up...and I'm one of the strictest nutrition professionals around!)

However, it's vitally important that you know EXACTLY how to manage this aspect of overeating on the specific days that you have gatherings (along with the proper way to combine this with strategic exercise) during this holiday season to actually give you an advantage in firing up your metabolism and maximizing the correct hormones to get you LEANER instead of fatter during this holiday season.

Make sure to read the page below ASAP, because Joel has some killer bonuses and coaching sessions available for you if you take action on the first day of this launch (that's today!)

Boost your metabolism and get LEANER by strategic feasting

And enjoy that turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pumpkin pie!

Burns more calories than jogging?

You probably have heard by now that jogging is one of the WORST forms of exercise you can do.

Sure, if you enjoy it as a relaxing hobby and it helps reduce your stress levels, then go for it.  But please be aware that jogging does more damage to your joints than almost ANY other form of exercise out there.

In addition, jogging does almost NOTHING to actually increase your metabolism via the "afterburn" effect of a workout.  On the other hand, more effective methods of training such as interval training, weight training, bodyweight resistance drills, sprinting, jump rope, etc are MUCH more effective at burning more calories AFTER your workout... giving you a metabolism boost for up to 24 hrs or more after your exercise session.

This is the KEY to truly burning more fat and boosting your metabolism...the afterburn effect, as opposed to how many calories you burn during your workout.

Amazing hiking and pictures of Loreto Mexico

I've been in Loreto, Mexico this week on a combination business/pleasure trip, and along with some business discussions with the one and only Dr. Kareem (the inventor of the Double Edge Fat Loss System), we've done a bunch of fun activities like climbing a small but vertical peak with a cliff that overlooked the ocean, did 2 great scuba dives yesterday seeing some amazing marine wildlife and underwater cliffs, and also did what I would say is the best hike I've ever been on in my life!

I wanted to show you some pics from this one particular hike because it was so incredible, and it was also an extremely fun and challenging hike that involved almost as much climbing as actual hiking, involved some bouldering, and even some climbing through several caves to get where we needed to go!

Remember that I live in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains and do a lot of hiking and mountain biking, so finding a hike that can impress me more than colorado takes a lot.

But this hike/climb in Loreto, MX was unlike any hike I've done in the states... it was also an awesome workout, had very unique and beautiful desert/canyon/arroyo scenery, and like I said, also involved almost as much climbing up cliffs, boulders, and caves, as it did normal hiking.

Here are some pics from our hike/climb:

Going through the canyon with Dr Kareem, his wife Karen, and me and Nayri

This was a different hike that we did to the top of a small peak that overlooked the Sea of Cortez.  beautiful!

still going up!

here's a crazy tarantula that we saw while hiking the canyon... yes, this thing was about the size of my hand!  a little freaky.

here's Karen coming out of one of the caves we had to climb up and through to continue on our canyon trail.

a look back down part of the canyon we had hiked up. Notice the Sea of Cortez in the background.

more scenery from inside the Baja desert canyon

these are some of the massive boulders that we had to climb over.

And our reward for the hard hiking... some margaritas later that evening overlooking the ocean!!

Hope you enjoyed the pics.

A trick to prevent a hangover

How to Prevent a Hangover

I was at a Halloween party last night with some friends having a few drinks, and the topic of hangovers came up (along with a few laughs about the movie, The Hangover). Now personally, I never really get hangovers, even if I have a few too many, so I haven't tried this myself...

but 2 of my friends specifically said that they used to get hangovers after a night of drinking, but now they take something called VGF25+ (a whole foods based vitamin, which the name stands for 25 veggies, greens, and fruits) and this somehow prevents the hangover, they believe.

They told me that what they do is take one of the VGF25+ caps before they go to bed with some water after a night of drinking, and they haven't had a hangover since they've been doing this. Again, I haven't tried this myself, but you can grab some VGF25+ here and try it as a hangover preventative for yourself.

Also, if you missed it a couple weeks ago, I published an article about the whole topic of drinking and some specific tips to balance this aspect of your life and stay lean if you choose to partake in some social drinking. A lot of people struggle with packing on lbs from alcohol, but I also know that most people don't want to fully give up social drinking altogether.

So I give 7 specific tips in this article below about how to prevent packing on the blubber and still enjoy a little bit of social drinking in moderation.
