Fitness Begins in the Kitchen

Lose Belly Fat

Lose up to 9 lbs. in one week

With my online program you will be equipped with all of the tools needed to help you eat right and melt belly fat. My program use the newest science of Sugar Calories — the only calories that truly count — to help you lose belly fat each week.

Screen Shot 2014-08-22 at 2.09.24 PMEverything you’ve been taught in the past about calories has been WRONG. Thinking of all calories as equal will lead to failure every time. The secret to true, lasting weight loss comes from avoiding HIDDEN SUGAR CALORIES. Why? Because sugar stimulates the weight gain hormone, insulin. By keeping insulin levels low, you guarantee weight loss.

However, we now have a new understanding of what “sugar” is, and it may seem shocking. We are all aware that sugar lies in candy, soda, and cookies, but it has also been hiding in CARBOHYDRATES.Screen Shot 2014-08-22 at 3.33.44 PM

Carbs are molecularly structured as sugar and break down the same in our bodies; therefore, it is important we consider carbs as sugar when trying to keep insulin in check and lose weight.

To ensure your success each week, I offer menus and meal planners, as well as a food list and recipes to make your own meal plans. There are 3 different styles of eating that I provide. For rapid results, and the program I highly recommend to help you lose up to 9 lbs. in one week, follow The 100™. However, if you are looking for options with higher Sugar Calorie limits that still help you stay healthy and lose belly fat, I also offer Happy Hormones, Slim Belly™ and The Belly Fat Cure™.

As a bonus, I also provide you with positive, motivational thoughts to keep you on track. In order to be successful on any plan, you need the right mindset. That is why I have compiled some of the best tips and inspiration to keep you going.

Burn even more belly fat

The most effective exercise program to lose fat quickly!

Instead of learning all new movements, steps, and routines to follow an exercise routine, Just Two Moves is fun, easy and simple, yet extremely effective at burning fat during the workout and more importantly days after your workout. Just TWO Moves and you are done!

More effective than hitting the gym for hours or even your favorite cardio machine…

Just Two Moves™ is a sequence of two exercises performed at an intensity level that’s high enough to efficiently unlock belly fat without dedicating time and energy attempting to burn off more calories. Just Two Moves™ activates catecholamines that produce adrenaline as well as other hormones, that tells your body to use stored fat around your abdomen as energy during and after the 20 minute workout. You also create EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption) and means that you consume a great deal more oxygen recovering from the exercise than you would if you’d just done an average, medium-intensity workout—even if that workout was 10 times as long! You’ll be burning up to nine times more fat while sitting down to lunch that day, and even while you’re sleeping.

Introducing the most intense 8 seconds of your day.

To temporarily stress your body enough to tap into fat-burning catecholamines—especially in just 20 short minutes!– requires you bringing your total energy and intensity to the 8 seconds of your active move, which is designed to be a full-body move that gets your heart rate up. This is the move that allows our bodies to tap into our fat storage for fuel. The beauty in this program is that you will be strength training for the 12 seconds during the cycle to help you preserve lean muscle at the same time you drop belly fat, all just 20 minutes, 3 times a week!
