As humans, we love things that make our live's easier.
I mean, how cool is it that with an app you can have an Uber with you in 3 minutes?
Or Amazon Prime? Amazon can now have packages to you the SAME DAY you order them!
That's nuts. I remember as a kid ordering DVDs and sometimes having to wait for over a week!
Also, think of the medical world. In certain situations, you can pop a pill in your mouth and all the pain will magically all go away.
Unfortunately, quick fixes don't apply to fat loss or your overall health
There are no quick fixes
Which can be a bitter pill to swallow
As much as the supplement companies will try and tell you there are no magic pills that will help you to lose weight
These supplement companies literally prey on people who are confused, desperate and therefore vulnerable
Dietary supplements are a $37 billion-a-year business in the U.S!! That's staggering!
I'm afraid you can't just pop a pill in your mouth or drink a special juice and expect to watch the fat magically melt off
Fat loss takes consistency, patience and willpower. Not a pill. Not a "Skinny coffee". And definitely not a juice claiming to double your metabolism!
To lose weight you only need to do one thing;
Burn more energy than you eat in a day.
(You can learn more about loosing weight in my post How to get fat and how not to!)
Which is genuinely really simple, it's just pretty hard work sometimes!
Which people aren't fans of.
There is no alternative to hard work. If you really want to get in great shape you have to exercise and you have to eat sensibly
You can't ignore both of these aspects and solve it with an expensive pill
There are also no shortcuts when it comes to training
Those 7 minute workout DVDs ex-Hollyoak stars bring out are a con
You'll see a before photo of them on a beach looking all jiggly and then a super edited after photo of them with a 6 pack.
The super strict diet that got them those results they don't show you! Because that won't sell. A simple solution to your fat loss problems will sell. Like a 7 minute workout;
"Amazing! So I can eat whatever I want, workout for 7 mins a few times a week and get a 6 pack!"
It's a con.
Getting in amazing shape and living a healthy lifestyle isn't as "sexy" as these money making brands want you to think. They're almost keeping you at arms-length from the truth so you can continue being confused and they can continue making billions every year.
I'm going to show you the very basics you need to get lean.
It doesn't matter who you are, what your body type is and how slow you think your metabolism is.
These guidelines work and every fitness plan in the world will incorporate some variation of these rules
So listen up, don't waste any more money and decide if you're actually prepared to work hard to get the results you want
Because if you do, this is all you need to know:
Ben's 5 sexy rules for getting lean
Drink 2L of fat loss juice every day (also known as water)
Eat 5 vegetables a day
Eat 3 meals a day and have protein with every meal
Perform resistance training 3 x a week for 45 minutes
Only eat raw vegetables in between meals
If you're reading that and curling your nose up, I'm afraid there's no way around it.
That's what it takes to get the results you're looking for
Hard work and consistency!
