There are probably more fad diets out there than there are people
looking to lose a little body fat, and unfortunately nearly as many
diet pills and fat loss supplements too. Into that overcrowded space
I'm going to give you a few simple guidelines combined with Adapt
Nutrition Adaptolean, a high potency fat burner supplement, which
pretty much guarantee results similar to those I've seen over and over
again during the last 12 months.
The reason I've picked Adaptolean to enhance the effects of these fat loss guidelines is that it supports mental activity and physical energy during periods of low calorie consumption, but also increases metabolic rate and dampens down hunger pangs better than pretty much any other supplement I've come across. Having said that, these guidelines will work with many other fat loss supplements, and I'd be happy to suggest changes if you wanted to work with another product, or even if you wanted to follow the guidelines without using a supplement at all.
I'm going to keep this article simple and straight to the point so that its practical and usable. If you want the science behind it, or you want the 'whys' you'll find it in other articles on our website. The objective here is to give you something you can use to help permanently lose body fat. Ok, lets kick the guidelines off then.....
Putting a diet together to add muscular bodyweight is a lot easier with access to weight gain supplements like Applied Nutrition Critical Mass, but its still easier to get it totally wrong than it is to get it totally right. But like most things, with knowledge and a little bit of preparation, its amazing how good a result anyone can achieve with surprisingly little effort.
The starting point is to get a baseline for your mass gaining calorie needs. To begin pick a number between 0 and 10 to indicate your normal daily activity level (exclude exercise) with 0 being totally inactive (lying down), 3 a typical office job, 6 a moderate activity job being on your feet most of the day, and 10 a hard physical activity being on your feet all day, rushing about, and handling heavy items or hard manual labour.

Its been part of nutritional folklore for generations. When it comes to fruit and vegetable you need to "get your five a day" to make sure you get adequate vitamins and minerals. But how relevant is this mantra today, and is it the yardstick we should use for a healthy diet.
The sad truth is that todays fruit and veg is far lower in nutrients than it was just a few decades ago, and this trend is continuing year on year. The main culprit is soil depletion, a result of modern farming techniques where intensive agricultural methods have stripped ever more nutrients from the soil in which are food is grown. This is compounded by technologies to create larger, faster growing crops that create bigger yields for the farmers, but which have less ability to store nutrients.

I've spent almost 30 years discussing nutrition programs with people who are looking to lose body fat, gain body weight or build muscle, and its given me some great insights. Not into nutrition, that's really simple, actually it's even easier than simple. No, the insights I've gained are into the thinking processes that make something simple seem almost impossible, and how to change this thinking so that just about anyone can achieve their goals.
So, in the spirit of keeping this simple, I'm going to keep this article short and sweet and set it out under a few key bullet points.
The modern diets of Western populations are becoming disturbingly poor. This has, of course, been a problem that's dramatically became worse over recent years, but as fitness and performance athletes, it's no excuse for us.
The problem with most modern diets is they're leading to adverse cardiovascular health, heart disease, diabetes, sluggishness, obesity, and poor mood and energy, despite the substantial increase in calories!
Rectifying these problems is surprisingly pretty easy. By returning to a diet that mimics our ancestors evolutionary ways, we can supercharge our health and performance. Here are 8 ways to do exactly that.
And, remember, when all else fails, follow this motto: If you can catch it, kill it, or its found in nature, then its probably good for you to eat!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Its here again. Boy, that was fast. Its Christmas and New Year and its more than the geese that are getting fat. Most people relax off their training and their diet goes completely to pot at Christmas. And why not. Sometimes in life you have to stop and smell the roses right? Of course you do. Sit back, relax, review the last year and enjoy yourself for a couple of weeks. Lay off the hardcore intensity. Eat turkey sandwhiches and drink mulled wine. Enjoy life from an entirely different perspective. Then once you have done all that, get yourself back in the driving seat because it's time to think about the year ahead.

For late September, it's pretty warm right now in the UK. We're apparently having an "Indian Summer" I'm told. But in around two weeks time, we'll be back in familiar territory; freezing our assess off and using it as an excuse to get fat, all in the name of "Bulking".
If you followed our previous roundtable, you'll realise that I not only dissaprove of this conventional method of adding muscle but also remonstrate against. My explanation is quite simple: you spend far too much time cutting the excess off and losing muscle when you want to get in shape, and are also at a disadvantage for losing strength, and, well, looking like crap.
On a brighter note, I do have what I consider to be pretty useful advice for an "Anabolic Winter". It's the bodybuilders version of a "White Christmas", and it's a time when many of us are seriously trying to put some hard graft in the gym in return for new muscle tissue. Here are my solutions to make this a successful period of lean muscle mass accumulation, and not one of fat accumulation!
