Seriously, the most important part of the process is arming yourself with the CORRECT knowledge. If you know how your body works…why it stores belly flab…what actually causes it to burn off…you’re a whole lot better off.
Now, I know there is a ton of information out there and it’s confusing the heck out of you. I know a lot of people tell you different things and it can be very frustrating , but if you follow these simple rules and burn them into your brain things will be a lot different.
Anyway, let’s get to today’s easy lesson. Check this out:
– Increased Protein intake triggers the hormone Glucagon.
– This, in turn, prevents the spiking of your Insulin (which is also a hormone) levels.
– Which simply means you minimize the chance of storing blood sugar as fat.
When you only eat carbs your Insulin levels go through the roof. And all that blood sugar (that’s what the carbs turn into after you’ve eaten them) which isn’t needed by your body MUST go somewhere. Yup, it goes to your belly; or your butt; or your hips; or your thighs…
The best part is, it’s not very hard to consume more protein. In fact, it’s pretty darn easy. A high quality protein powder will do just the trick.
My partners at Prograde Nutrition have launched their new Prograde Protein powder. It tastes great AND it does NOT use any artificial sweeteners. It’s naturally flavored with Stevia.

In other words, eat more protein and you bust the belly flab. Sure, there’s more to it than that, but that is the crux of it. And so long as you understand the basics you can KEEP the belly flab from coming back.
