5 Weird Flat Abdominal Fitness Tips

By Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

If you’ve been struggling to get flat, sexy abs and burn belly fat with traditional workouts, then you are going to love these 5 weird abdominal exercise and diet tips.

Over the last 13 years as a trainer and athlete, I’ve been studying every expert and research study I can find about the best way to get flat abs.

Today, you’ll discover 5 weird tips you might not know when it comes to getting a flat stomach and firm abs.

#1 – The best interval training work-to-rest ratio for losing belly fat might be 1-to-1.5.

In an Australian study, researchers found that doing intervals for 8 seconds followed by 12 seconds of rest resulted in significantly more belly fat burning than long slow cardio.

Now I know that 8 seconds on and 12 seconds off sounds a little annoying (just try doing that on a machine), but the good news is that these researchers found that going for 24 seconds followed by a 36 second rest works just as well for boosting fat burning hormones.

#2 – Dr. Chris Mohr’s #1 weird diet tip is…

I just finished up a fat loss nutrition interview with Dr. Mohr and he told me that his simple, yet slightly weird #1 diet tip for fat loss is…

“Get almost all of your carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables.”

I really liked that tip because I’ve been telling people this for years, and it’s part of the Fat Loss Foundation you’ll discover in my Simple Nutrition manual & DVD.

#3 – You need to be able to do a Plank exercise for 2 minutes.

Dr. Stuart McGill, the world’s leading expert on low back health, says in his book that a person with fit abs should be able to do a plank exercise for 2 minutes straight.

If you can’t do the plank for 2 minutes, then you need to lose belly fat and you need to get an abdominal workout DVD program that works your abs properly.

#4 – New research shows that supersets training burns more calories than traditional straight set resistance training.

And that’s exactly what you’ll get in every short, burst exercise workout.

The short, burst superset programs save you time (getting you done in half the time of a traditional resistance workout) while helping you burn more fat.

#5 – To see your abs, a man will need to be close to 10% fat and a woman will need to be at about 16% fat.

Of course, the more muscle you have, the easier it will be too see your abs, so you’ll still be able to see a 4-pack on muscular guys when they have 12-13% fat.

But the bottom line is that you need to use the Simple Nutrition plan combined with the short, burst exercise workouts to burn belly fat to see your sexy abs.

BONUS Tip – A great way to work your abs harder than normal planks is the Stability Ball Plank.

Research reported in Men’s Health magazine reported this exercise to be 30% harder on your abs than a regular plank.

And last Friday I used an interesting technique with this exercise that caused my abs to be sore for days. But that’s another story for another weird abdominal exercise article – coming soon!

Is Fat Burning Kitchen a Scam?

Oh my god! Mike Geary, author of “Fat Burning Kitchen”, is a complete scam artist! A scam is defined as a “fraudulent business scheme.” It’s a business that’s supposed to swindle you out of your money.

With this definition, Mike Geary should be taking your money and running for the hills. Yup, that’s why he has 2 Best-Selling ebooks on the Internet, and that’s why he guarantees an 8 week money back guarantee on all his products.

That’s ridiculous! Everyone knows that if you follow any sort of nutrition program for 8 weeks, you’re bound to get results. And what if after 8 weeks you don’t like the product?

Then what proof do you have that he’ll actually refund your money? You don’t, other than the fact that his transactions are all handled by, which is basically like with better security, more features, and with a great, ten year track record.

In other words, if Mike Geary does refuse to refund your money, then you just contact Clickbank, and they’ll refund it for you. They can, since they’re the ones who handle the cash flow.’s the big boss.

So, yup, Mike Geary is a scam artist. He’s a scam artist because he’s put together a super high quality nutrition product that will help you improve your fitness level and charges just a fraction of the cost it would cost if you hired a nutritionist.

In my opinion, he’s not really scamming the consumer. He’s screwing over the nutritionist who gets paid on an hourly basis to create nutritional programs for you.

And he’s even screwing over companies who try to sell you infomercial products and diet books. He’s also screwing over all those companies that try and sell you weight loss foods. In fact, he calls them out in his eBook, telling you exactly why you should stay away from them.

And he’s also screwing over all those companies that sell diet pills. Because he’s showing you the value of hard work and proper nutrition. He’s giving you a clear cut plan, from beginning to end.

Seriously? Does that sound like a scam artist to you? I think you’re just making an excuse not to start your fitness journey. Stop making excuses and start your fitness journey today.

Pros and Cons of Mike Geary’s Fat Burning Kitchen

The Fat Burning Kitchen is a nutritional eBook written by Mike Geary and Catherine Ebeling. Lets take a look at some some pros and cons of this ebook:

Pro: Easy to Read and Apply

Most eBooks get too scientific, especially nutritional eBooks. The Fat Burning Kitchen is extremely easy to read and implement. Mike goes step by step and tells you exactly what to eat, and what to avoid.

Just take a look at the contents to see how simply this eBook is organized:

  • Chapter 1 – Foods made with refined flour and corn products
  • Chapter 2 – Food and drinks containing high fructose corn syrup
  • Chapter 3 – Margarines, vegetable oils, trans fats, Crisco
  • Chapter 4 – Artificial Sweetners – Splenda, NutraSweet, Saccharin
  • Chapter 5 – Commercial Pasteurized Dairy
  • Chapter 6 – Commercially raised meats; farm-raised fish
  • Chapter 7 – Soymilk, tofu, TVP
  • Chapter 8 – Sports/Energy Drinks
  • Chapter 9 – Energy Bars
  • Chapter 10 – Processed Foods, Weight-loss meals, Diet Snacks, and Diet Desserts
  • Chapter 11 – High quality – protein-grass fed beef or bison, wild caught fish, free-range chicken, whole (free-range) eggs
  • Chapter 12 – Raw dairy milk and cheese
  • Chapter 13 – Grass fed dairy butter, coconut oil, lard
  • Chapter 14 – Nuts-Almonds, pecans, walnuts, pistachios, Brazil nuts, cashews, macadamia nuts
  • Chapter 15 – Avocados
  • Chapter 16 – Organic berries
  • Chapter 17 – Organic dark green leafy vegetables
  • Chapter 18 – Healthy Sweeteners: Real Maple Syrup, Raw honey, Stevia
  • Chapter 19 –  Healthy REAL Food Energy Bars
  • Chapter 20 – Dark Chocolate
  • Chapter 21 – Herb Teas
  • Chapter 22 – Items to Keep in Your Kitchen
  • Chapters 23 – The Transformation Has Begun!

Wow, Mike doesn’t joke around. He tells you everything about everything!

Pro: Exposes certain “Healthy” foods that are really Unhealthy

Food makers seem to be able to do anything they want with very little regulation. There are hundreds of foods that people are consuming regularly that are marketed to you as healthy, but really are not.

Right on the 6th page of the eBook, Mike talks about the processing of foods. Do not skip over this section. You absolutely know how the foods that you eat are being processed and how it effects your body.

Whenever a company tells you something is low-carb, non-fat, low-fat, high protein etc., the food is processed. Our ancestors ate unprocessed foods. We don’t. (Mike will tell you why this is an important distinction).

Con: You May need to Drastically Change your Diet

Most people reading this will be shocked at what they’re eating. I know I was! I thought I ate pretty healthy, but there were a few things I was eating that were absolutely not healthy for me.

For example, the American diet is very heavily based on corn. Corn is a type of grain. Our ancestors whose diets were heavy on grain suffered from high rates of anemia, arthritis, and osteoporosis.

Pro: Written by Two Experts

Another thing I like about this eBook is that it’s written by Mike Geary and Catherine Ebeling. Mike Geary is a world-renowned certified trainer and nutritionist. He is also the author of Truth About Abs (you’ve probably heard of it).

Catherine Ebeling is another certified nutritionist. Obviously not one person knows everything. So, it’s a good idea to team up with someone and create a complete product that answers all of an individual’s questions.

As you can see from the contents posted above, the eBook certainly is packed with a lot of great information. It’s true what they say: two heads are better than one.

Con: Gets Too Scientific…Sometimes

I stated this book was easy to read. It is. But sometimes, actually at a few points, the book gets a bit too scientific. Push yourself through these areas because they are very vital to read.

I suggest reading the entire eBook from front to back, chapter by chapter, line by line. At the end, if there’s something you don’t understand you can always review it.

If there is still something that you need to be cleared up, you can always ask me or shoot an email to Mike. Mike has a great support team ready to answer all your questions.

Pro: You’ll Achieve a leaner and healthier body

It’s not going to be easy, but with Mike’s help you’ll certainly be that much closer to achieving a healthier body. He’s constantly giving you incredible tips throughout the book.

For example, most individuals avoid fats completely when trying to lose weight. The truth is, eating certain fats can actually help you get leaner. Eating the wrong kinds of fats (which most people do) will lead to fat gain, and other health issues.

Another thing people do when trying to lose weight is to switch to artificial sweeteners. These sweeteners can be extremely harmful to the body and have caused numerous side effects (one of the caused excessive urination..what!)

Pro: Includes Video Lessons

The last thing that is so incredible about Mike’s eBook is that he also includes video lessons. Reading something and visually seeing something are two different things.

Mike has teamed up with Isabel (author of The Diet Solution) to give you a series of videos that can be used alongside with the Fat Burning Kitchen. These videos are only for people who purchased the Fat Burning Kitchen.

Overall, Mike’s created an amazing product!

5 Nutrition Tips for Fat Loss

By Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
Author, Turbulence Training

This is always tough to admit, but nutrition is more important than your workouts when it comes to fat loss.

And since diet is more important than exercise, I’ve decided to spend a lot time sharing nutrition tips this week, starting with these 5 diet secrets:

1) Your nutrition program doesn’t have to be extreme.

Hold up on making any extreme diet changes. Make sure the nutrition plan you’ve chosen is sustainable. Simple diet changes go a lot farther than you might think.

Why not just eat more whole, natural foods rather than trying to go on an impossible-to-stick-to ultra-low carb extreme plan?

2) Get the junk out of the house.

If it’s in your house, you’ll eat it…and trust me, this goes for me too. When I visit a relative’s house for holiday, I always eat the treats they have sitting around. That’s why I keep the junk out of  my house.

So whatever your weakness is, keep it out of your home.

Success is that simple.

3) Fill in the “diet-killing” gap.

For some folks, the diet-killing gap is between work and dinner. For others, it’s between dinner and bedtime, but for almost everyone, there is a point in the day when we suffer from mindless eating.

So make sure you have alternatives…as soon as you come home from work, cut up vegetables and dip them into hummus. That will keep you full on a small amount of calories.

After dinner, if you need something sweet, stir up chocolate protein powder into a small bit of plain yogurt. That will satisfy you.

4) Chew your food 5-10 times before swallowing.

Most people eat so fast they only about 1-2 times. You’ll really notice a difference and you’ll slow your eating so you feel full.

5) Have a bowl of broth-based vegetable soup before a meal.

American researcher Barbara Roll has published a lot of studies showing that this will help you reduce the food you eat. Surprisingly, consuming just water doesn’t seem to do the same trick.

So those are just 5 of the diet secrets we have for you this year.

Stay tuned for proven secrets to help you lose fat in 2010.

Craig just came out with an incredible set of 19 DVD’s. These DVD’s are all designed to help you reveal your six pack abs. Yup! It’s the Turbulence Training for Abs DVD set. Click here to learn all about them!

Tom Venuto: How to Workout for True Body Transformation

Click here to check out my review of the Holy Grail Transformation Program.

According to Tom Venuto, it’s absolutely impossible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time RIGHT NOW. You can’t train for a week and put on 2 pounds of muscle and lose 2 pounds of fat within that week.


There is a time for everything. And that is exactly what Tom Venuto talks about in his brand new eBook, “The Holy Grail Body Transformation Program.” You see, gaining muscle mass and losing fat is only possible under certain, critical, optimal circumstances.

If you knew exactly what those circumstances were, you can create a situation where you had complete control over your nutrition and training in a way where it would seem as if you’re actually packing on muscle and losing fat AT THE SAME TIME!

What are these things that you can change and control for greater results? Well, that is exactly what Tom Venuto will reveal to you in his new program. You’re probably wondering why he wrote this eBook if he himself believes that you should focus on one thing at a time – first build muscle mass, then lose fat (or vise versa).

Well, there’s a few reasons why he wrote this program. First of all, he was getting tired of all the claims other fitness professionals were making about gaining muscle and losing fat at the same time.

He wanted to 1) see if there was any actual truth to what they were saying, and 2) if they were lieing to you, he wanted to expose them. It’s important for him to check these guys out because Tom knows that people buying these products are doing so with unrealistic expectations.

Tom covers all this information and more in his brand new eBook, “The Holy Grail Body Transformation Program.” He’s giving this eBook away along with his Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle eBook.

But you must act quickly! You only have until March 5 to grab this free bonus. After March 5, Tom will re-launch the Holy Grail eBook as a separate product for $47!

Lose Stubborn Belly Fat Quickly With Dr. Kareem Samhouri

Hey guys, enjoy this great advice from Dr. Kareem Samhouri:

Losing stubborn belly fat can be challenging if you are not living with the correct lifestyle modifications. Stress management techniques, regular exercise, and a decent diet are necessary strategies to ever achieve the flat stomach and toned abs that you are seeking. Many people realize the importance of exercise, but very few understand the implication of stress on belly fat.

Stress increases production of a hormone called ‘cortisol,’ which results in a deposit of belly fat. This is a primitive reaction of the body as, historically, we used this belly fat deposit for food during long winter months of food deprivation. You see, cold weather and lack of food are two stress-producing stimuli that result in the exact same reaction. For this reason, it is vital that we understand starvation diets and extreme dietary modification works to increase deposits of fat in hard to reach areas. It’s a defense mechanism to ensure we don’t starve.

By regulating the amount of cortisol released in our bodies through stress management techniques we can alter body composition to our advantage. The next time you feel stressed by the thought of work, exercise, home, or what have you, I encourage you to practice deep breathing. The suggestion is to breathe in by sniffing, thereby inducing a diaphragmatic breath, and breathe out slowly while exhaling as if you were blowing through a straw. Pursing your lips, or exhaling like blowing through a straw, results in increased removal of carbon dioxide, as well as increased absorption of oxygen. Naturally, oxygen has an inhibitory affect on our nervous system, allowing us to relax and manage our stress level inappropriately.

Through regular practice of stress management to decrease cortisol levels, combined with a proper exercise and nutrition plan, you can legitimately skyrocket your results in the gym. Unfortunately, most people spend too much time worrying about their body weight, rather than reinforcing their habits by mental exercise as well.

Dr. Kareem Samhouri is coming out with an incredible new product called Double Edged Fat Loss. Click here to Learn More.

The Reviews are In: Tom Venuto’s New Holy Grail Transformation Program

Click here to check out my review of the Holy Grail Transformation Program.

There are already hundreds of individuals who have decided to pursue the Holy Grail. You must make a decision on whether or not you wish to join them. But if you do join them, you must realize that the journey to achieving your goal will be challenging.


Even though body transformation is a tough journey, it will be made easier with the help of Tom Venuto. There are many different things going on with your body that you do not have time to think about as you go about your day.

For example, one of the biggest issues with a fat loss diet is muscle lose. Reducing calories and doing lots of cardio is not only a recipe for fast fat loss, but is also a recipe for quick reduction in muscle.

We all know how important maintaining your muscle mass is while trying to lose fat. In fact, this used to be my biggest issue when trying to improve my body composition.

This is one of the many issues that Tom Venuto addresses in “The Holy Grail Body Transformation Program.” This program was brought on by the problem of focusing on one goal at the same time, the way most people approach body transformation.

Traditionally, you are told to lose fat first, then build up lean muscle mass. However, the nutritional strategies are so different, that you end up losing muscle during your fat loss phase, and gaining fat during your mass gain phase.

He’s giving away his brand new program as a bonus with his Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle eBook.
