Are you frustrated by belly fat?
Imagine being able to cinch up your belt by 6 to 7 inches in just a few weeks. How many notches would that be? 3, 5, 6?
Unlike other diet companies, we value honesty and transparency. We’re not afraid to post up real results.
Our most recent case study involved 10 men who tested RECON, our newest meal plan created exclusively for men. After just eight weeks, the men lost an average of 33.78 pounds.
Our meal programs, guidelines, and exercise recommendations are the culmination of many studies done over the years.
Take for example last year’s Altered! study in which 6 brides-to-be lost a combined weight of 196.2 pounds in 10 weeks.
That’s an average of 32.7 pounds. And they each lost an average of 7.7 inches from their waistbands!
We see this all the time with our foods. This is “normal” to us. The frustrating thing is that everyone has been taught that results like these are too good to be true.
That has led to some big social media sites to tell us that we can’t talk about our real results.
So we are going to challenge the status quo.
We are bringing you Altered! again this year, but this time as a series of reality webisodes that you can watch.
You will be able to see first-hand how 4 brides-to-be and even their moms lose weight, flatten their bellies and look great on their big day.
Every tip, trick, and shortcut they use to maximize their programs will be revealed to you in the series.
(In fact, read on for a few tips you can use to burn extra belly fat…)
Here’s one of this Year’s Altered! flat-belly bikini bets: Victoria.
What will happen to her belly over the course of Altered!?
There is only one way to find out what Victoria’s secret is by signing up to be the first to see her results.
One of the things you will LOVE about this year’s Altered! study is that the mothers of the brides are also participating. You can read their bios here!
In the webisodes, we will show you exactly what to do …and what to avoid so you can lose belly fat –at any age.
We’re here to show you the truth about losing weight with Personal Trainer Food. So be sure to get the inside scoop: sign up to get your exclusive access.
In the meantime, get started on your six-pack today with 7 science-based flat-belly tricks from our Altered! ladies…
#1 Avoid This Poison
We all know that High Fructose Corn Syrup is bad for you. The reason is because the only organ in your body that can digest fructose is your liver.
Fructose in any form is a poison to your liver and in large quantities causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
In the mirror, a diet high in fructose manifests itself as belly fat, a sign of insulin resistance and metabolic disease.
If you are carrying any excess weight, reducing all fructose, including from fruits will help you lose weight, especially belly fat.
#2 Eat Eggs to Lose Faster
Eating eggs instead of cereal, oatmeal or a bagels for breakfast can be a big advantage to losing weight from around your belly.
Studies have compared groups of people ate an egg breakfast of 340 calories versus a bagel breakfast of 340 calories.
After 8 weeks, the egg breakfast people had an 83% greater reduction in their waistline than the bagel eaters.
Eggs also contain choline which turns off fat-storing genes.
#3 Amp Up On Green
Dark leafy greens are unlimited on our program for a very good reason.
There is no argument that these are some of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat.
Leafy greens are packed with important vitamins, minerals, and fiber that will help your body burn tummy fat.
They also fill you up without adding excess starches to your program.

#4 Sip on These Beverages
Good news if you love caffeinated beverages!
Coffee, black tea, and green tea have been shown to increase your body’s ability to burn fat.
Even more good news: a cup of coffee a day could help you also keep your weight losses over the long term while at the same time decreasing your diabetes risk.
#5 Add Some Spice to Your Life
Fresh or dried spices such as pepper, cinnamon, ginger or garlic have long been used for their medicinal qualities.
Research is just now uncovering the reasons why. Spices contain powerful compounds that can help heal and support your body while you lose weight.
Many have been shown to help with weight loss while reducing metabolic syndrome which means they can help you lose belly fat.
Our vegetable blends are perfect canvases for your favorite spice, and our Sweet Garlic Butter Sauce is a splendid complement!
#6 Get Your Vitamin ZZZZZZ…
It’s common for us to run around sleep-deprived. But making sure you get enough sleep can massively help get you to your goal weight.
When you are lacking in ZZZZs, it throws your fat-burning mechanism out of whack.
Cortisol levels go up, priming your body for belly fat storage. Ghrelin levels also go up. When that happens, you start craving sugar. Sleep deprivation and obesity magnify each other’s negative effects in a vicious cycle.
Break the cycle and get to bed early tonight!
#7 Quality Over Quantity
Many people are skeptical when we tell them that yes, you can lose weight by just walking 20 minutes a day.
There is little correlation between the length of your exercise session and the amount of fat you lose. It’s been shown 30 minutes of walking give about the same benefit as 60 minutes!
Contrary to what gym rats tell you, walking every day helps support your weight loss efforts now and will maintain your lean, flat belly over the long term.
And here’s a smart trick: you can use all the time you would otherwise spend getting to the gym to get more fat-burning sleep!
Still skeptical? Sign up to watch our Altered ladies eat right and walk the fat off their bellies …and everywhere else!
