Frequently Asked Questions

Q: CAN DRINKING WATER HELP ME LOSE BODY FAT?

It's widely known that drinking room temperature to warm water can hydrate you more efficiently than ice cold water. But did you know that by drinking ice cold water you can actually burn more calories.

Q: HOW SHOULD I SPACE MY SNACKS AND SUPPLEMENTATION?

it is essential that we keep our snacks within a three hour time frame to keep our metabolism high enough to burn excess calories.

Q: IF I DO SIT UPS OR ABDOMINAL CRUNCHES EVERY DAY, WILL I GET A SIX PACK?

No, doing sit-ups or crunches alone will not give you a six pack. Chances are you already have a six pack; it's just covered with a layer of fat. Cardio combined with a good healthy nutritional intake (as outlined over these chapters) and selective abdominal exercises (2-3 times per week) will give you a six pack.

Q: BEING A FEMALE, IF I WAS TO START WEIGHT TRAINING WOULD I BULK UP AND GROW BIG MUSCLES?

No, females do not have the amount of testosterone necessary to build "big" muscles quickly like men unless they are following a proper exercise and nutritional regime customized for muscle gain.

Q: WHEN I FINISH THE PROGRAM AM I GOING TO PUT BACK THE BODY FAT I LOST AND LOSE THE MUSCLE?

No, providing you do at least one whole body work out once per week and maintain a healthy eating plan and eradicating carbohydrates in your last meal.

Q: IF I'M SWEATING DOES THAT MEAN I'M BURNING FAT?

No not necessarily. Sweating is the body's natural cooling system that regulates your temperature. You have probably noticed well conditioned people and athletes often sweat a lot and they probably don't have much body fat, but the real reason is that their body is conditioned more to regulate heat. Other contributing factors of sweating include levels of hydration in the body, foods eaten before exercise, body fat levels and the temperature and level of humidity in the surrounding environment.

Q: IF IT IS FAT FREE CAN I EAT AS MUCH OF IT AS I WANT?

No, fat free products have mostly been filled with some sort of sugar to give you the sweeter taste than the full fat version. The majority of the time, the fat free option will also carry calories, just from a different ingredient and if your peddling away on your bike or stepper thinking you are burning fat, the ugly truth is, is that you are probably burning off the calories in that fat free product instead.
