Layman's Guides to Steroids: Episode III - Return Of The Syringe

If you're serious about building muscle then stop what you're doing and read this.

This is a short but extremely important notice. British bodybuilding and steroid guru Mick Hart will launch his new steroid guide next week, and has started a "priority notification list" where you can go now to get more information.

I suggest you do this for a couple of reasons:

1. He has told me in strict confidence that he will make a special "launch offer" (to those people who get on the priority notification list) that you would be wise not to miss.

2. Mick will send you preview information between now and next week, and knowing Mick, this information in itself will very informative!

Here's the page you need to go to now to get on the priority notification list: Mike's Page

Go do it now and you can listen to an audio interview with Mick talking in more detail about steroids and his new guide.

P.S. We don't recommend or approve of steroid use, but we know there are people that will, so you might as well do it right!

eBook Review: Diet Supplements Revealed

How much money have you wasted on false promises made by weight loss and diet supplement companies? I've spent so much money, it's embarrassing to talk about.

You've seen all the infomercials on late night TV showing how their "magic" pill will melt away fat in no time. Well guess what? Almost all of the supplements you come across in the media are scams!

So, how do you know which (of the few) supplements ACTUALLY WORK? Well, there is a man named Will Brink who is one of the top sports supplement experts in the United States. People such as world famous athletes, Hollywood stars, the SWAT team, and even the Navy Seal special operations teams rely on Will's advice to keep them in tip top shape.

That's all fine and great, but these people have thousands of dollars to pay Will for his advice. Chances are, you don't have those kinds of resources available for "nutritional advice".

The reason I am even bringing this up is, I just found a guide called "Diet Supplements Revealed" that was written by Will Brink. The moment I saw this guide was available, I snatched it up as fast as I could pull the credit card out of my wallet!

I have to tell you, this is "THE GUIDE" you must have if you are interested in reducing your body fat. It has completely unbiased reviews of the weight loss supplements that actually work. I was surprised at how the media uses it's marketing hype to make worthless products look so good. After reading Will's book, I wonder how some of these so called weight loss supplement companies can sleep at night!

There is so much invaluable knowledge in this manual, I can't really do it justice here. You will have to check it out for yourself to truly understand what it takes to finally lose the weight, once and for all.

Will was having a special a couple days ago where he was giving away free consulting through his website. You can ask Will any kind of questions you want, plus he also has a bunch of exercise videos & meal planners developed for you too. If this special is still going on, you better jump on it. If you wanted to chat with Will as one of his regular clients, you would be looking at a few hundred dollars per hour!

Anyway, if you feel it's time to lose your body fat once and for all, reading "Diet Supplements Revealed" is the best possible way to get it done. Click here to learn more about "Diet Supplements Revealed".

eBook Review: Muscle Building Nutrition

Until you learn to eat right, you will have a hard time building lean muscle.

I am constantly reading and learning about the best ways to build lean muscle mass. Education is probably one of the best things you can do to help yourself get the edge when working out in the gym.

This ebook is called "Muscle Building Nutrition" and was written by a man by the name of Will Brink.

Will is a sports nutrition and supplementation expert, not some lazy slob sitting in his basement writing "muscle building" guides. Some of Will's clients include famous athletes and even SWAT team and Navy Seal special operation teams! When Will talks about building muscle, I listen. Plain and simple.

Needless to say, I was on the edge of my seat while reading this guide. The "lean muscle building diet" plan that is spelled out step by step was worth the price of the book by itself. This is the same plan used by professional athletes throughout the world. The only difference is, you don't have to pay thousands of dollars for this plan like the athletes do.

In the second part of the book, Will talks about bodybuilding supplements. I have to admit, I was completely shocked at what he revealed. Thanks to Will, I will save thousands of dollars this year by not wasting money on supplements that flat out don't work. (Will does explain which ones DO WORK, so that is something you won't want to miss).

Last time I checked, Will was offering a special on his website. He was giving away free memberships to his "Inner Ring", which is basically free support and consulting with Will and a bunch of other great freebies. If he is still offering this bonus, then you should signup right away before he stops giving it away.

I can't recommend Will Brink's "Muscle Building Nutrition" book highly enough. Click Here and hurry over to his website to check it out for yourself.

Instant Weight Loss Strategies

Instant Weight Loss Strategies That Anyone Can Use
by Gary Matthews

You've probably heard it a hundred times before but I will say it again, incidental activity is very important in the process of losing weight as you can burn more calories than relying on dietary means alone.

Fat is burned from the body when cells oxidize to release energy in the form of exercise or movement. When the exercise is done slowly to moderately then the majority of energy is taken from the fat stores.

The loss of fat comes from fat cells all over the body, not from one or more specific area's so spot reduction of a certain area is not possible. The main priority of this article is to show you the quickest and safest way to lose fat from the body.

The key to effective aerobic training that burns off the maximum amount of fat is long-term consistency not intensity. It doesn't matter if you run a mile, jog a mile or walk a mile you will burn exactly the same amount of calories.

The best exercise by far for the purpose of fat-loss is fast walking either indoors on the treadmill or outdoors. What many don't know is that walking produces a greater percentage of fat loss as opposed to jogging or running. Other aerobic activities are the treadmill, bike, climber or any other training gear found in or out of the gym.

Walk or exercise until you are mildly puffing and hold that rate until the allotted time. If your aerobic activities leave you panting or breathless, your going too hard, your energy is coming from your carbohydrate reserves and not from your fat stores. Try fast walking for one hour a day every day of the week if you are able.

Here are some of the benefits of Fast Walking.

Why do diets always fail?

Why is it, when you start a new diet, it usually always fails eventually?

Maybe you have a little success at the start and lose a few pounds but it never seems to stay off for long. It seems so unfair. Have you found that?

So why do diets fail?

Do they fail because you lack willpower?
Is it because the diet is flawed and could never work?
Are you unable to change your lifestyle to meet the diet's demands?
Is your teacher or dietician unskilled enough to pass on their expertise?

Actually, the reason diets fail is NONE of the above...

So what is the real reason?

Well, the great news is, I have found an excellent site to finally give you an answer to this burning question. I have to say, this site is just a little bit special and with a very different solution from anything else you may have found before.

I recommend you try out what it says - it may well be what finally makes a difference to your weight - permanently.

Check out the site now and by the time you reach the bottom of the page you will understand why I'm so excited.

Exercising Over The Holidays

Festive Fitness
Nine tricks for fitting in exercise over the holidays

Who has time to exercise during the holidays? You do—and here's how. You don't have to spend an hour at the gym to get a quality workout in. With holiday parties, travel and shopping, your free time is probably at an all-time low. So we've got nine simple tricks that can help keep you active, without driving you to the proverbial holiday nuthouse.

If you can get into the mindset that something is better than nothing, you'll be amazed at the results you can get.

1. Break up your routine. Research has shown that when it comes to lifting weights, a few shorter workouts can be just as effective as one long workout. Look at your normal weight lifting routine and split it up into two or three smaller pieces. Take 10 or 15 minutes, two or three times during the day and fit each piece in. You'll find you'll be able to fill your downtime that you usually waste waiting to do something else, and you'll get the same benefit as you would doing your normal, longer workout.

2. Do a little bit each day. Make it your goal to do something active each day during the month of December. You don't have to feel guilty if you can't exercise as much as you did in September, but you do have to keep your lifestyle active. Find an activity—walking, vacuuming, shopping, shoveling snow—and get it done.

3. Commit to half. You're driving home past the gym. You still have four aunts, two uncles and a hairdresser to shop for—what do you do? Commit to doing half of your normal routine. Get in the gym, change your clothes and start an abbreviated workout. You'll be staying active and odds are, once you're there, you'll stay for longer than you think.

4. Walk when you can't do anything else. Just walk. Walk around the block. Walk in the parking lot. Walk up and down the stairs. Even walking in the mall counts. If you have to call your relatives, then do so on the move. When you are at the end of your rope, just tie a knot and take a walk.

5. Exercise in the mornings if possible. This is one of the more difficult ways to fit in exercise, but it is probably the most rewarding. If you can, try waking up 30 minutes earlier for just one week, and then decide if it's worth it. Exercising during the morning hours is a tough transition, but many people find that once they start exercising early, they never stop. Remember, you're going to have to push yourself during the holiday season. To get the results you want, expect to put in some effort.

6. Use your lunch break for more than eating. Don't spend a whole hour in the break room watching Days of Our Lives. Instead do a couple laps around the parking lot first and then go eat. Even if you only have 10 minutes, get out and move. Again, the theory of "a little is better than nothing" applies here.

7. Up the intensity. You can shorten your workout, but make it more difficult. Lift heavier weights and increase the speed and/or the incline on the treadmill. Forcing your body to work harder for shorter periods of time is a good way to stimulate both muscle growth and fat burning.

8. Accept what's acceptable. Remember, 20 minutes of cardio will do. There's no need to ride the Life Cycle for an entire hour or elliptisize yourself to death. If you're busy during the holidays, shoot for a solid 20-minute workout. You will raise your heart rate long enough to promote fat burning, and you'll still have time to wrap that present for your neice.

Plus, if you miss a few days, it's not a reason to give up for the whole season. You aren't going to lose the gains you worked so hard for by missing just a few days or one week. Get back on the horse (or treadmill) and give it another shot. You know you are going to do well in January, but it's December that can really make the difference.

9. Don't set unrealistic goals. Finally, realize that you just might not be able to do everything you are used to doing. Your exercise goal for December is to keep in the active habit and make sure you don't pile on the pounds before the New Year. Ask yourself, "Is an hour of exercise each night a realistic goal?" Don't set yourself up to fail (or worse yet, to prove that exercising is impossible during the holidays). Be realistic, and you'll be successful.

Are You Eating Too Much Protein?

Discover The Truth About Eating Too Much Protein

Lets face it protein is an essential nutrient, and is vital to your health and is used to build muscles, skin, hair and nails. However, many people put their health at risk by eating too much of it.

The typical American diet already provides plenty of protein and there is no point in adding any more, unlike fat cells, there is no place in the body to store protein so the excess is eliminated or is seen as fat rather than muscle.

So what you need to do is to consume just enough protein to allow your muscles to be healthy, perform work and grow. But how much is just enough?

You only use protein for about 15% of your energy use, the majority of energy comes from fats and carbohydrates.

Exercising doesn't necessarily mean that you require more protein but more carbohydrates to stop your body breaking down protein and using that for energy.

Try to make sure that 70% of your protein comes from sources such as meat, fish, eggs or poultry. The complete protein provided by these foods combines with incomplete protein consumed from other food sources.

So your body makes the best of all the protein that you consume.

If you are consuming too much protein, you are probably consuming too many calories over your maintenance levels and this will show as an increase in your body fat levels.

And with the advent of the latest fad high protein diets, not enough carbohydrates are being consumed so the protein is converted to glucose and not converted into muscle growth.

What is needed for muscle growth is not more protein but high intensity strength training with the required amount of time for rest and recovery between sessions.

Because that major bodybuilding star you saw in the latest magazine requires 300 grams of protein a day doesn't mean that you have to. What he won't tell you is that taking Steroids is behind his muscle gains and not his diet.

High intensity strength training and not food stimulates muscle growth

Consuming excessive amounts of protein is not only bad for your liver and kidneys but also promotes vitamin and mineral deficiencies. It is also linked to osteoporosis and some forms of cancer.

One way to overcome the need to eat large quantities of protein is to increase the consumption of protein in stages until a maximum efficiency point is reached and then to drastically reduce it again.

This obliges the body to over-compensate by increasing the efficiency for the absorption of protein into the body.

An example of a Protein Loading diet is found below.

Are you being troubled by Sinusitis?

Around 30 per cent of the people in the world suffer from
sinus infection each year. How can it be prevented?

It is said that around 30 per cent of all people suffer from sinusitis
or sinus infection at least once each year. Sinuses are little air
pockets inside the skull bones. They are located to either side of
the nose, behind and in between the eyes, in the forehead, and
behind the head. Sinuses contain mucus that drains into the nasal
passageways through pin holes in the sinuses.

A sinus infection happens when the paranasal sinuses on either
side of the nose get inflamed. This happens during a cold or an
allergy attack, when more histamines are produced in the
paranasal sinuses. The inflammation blocks the narrow
passageways, making the mucus collect there. This collected
mucus soon becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. That's how a
sinus infection begins.

The body produces histamines during allergic reactions. Histamines
are neuro-transmitter chemicals. Though histamines are always
present in our body, an allergy attack causes more histamines to
be released at the site of the allergy attack. When a mosquito
bites, for example, histamines are released at the area of the bite
making the skin there turn red and itchy. When histamines are
released, they cause inflammation and constriction of the muscles.

The symptoms of a sinus infection begin with headache, facial pain,
nasal congestion, fever, green or yellow discharge, a heavy face
feeling, etc. The infection usually lasts for three weeks or more.

focus and concentration, improve short term memory, and contain
much less sugars than normal soft drinks.

The Glycemic Index

The Glycemic Index:
Key to Fat Loss Or Just Another Diet Gimmick?
Author: Tom Venuto

The glycemic index (GI) is a scale that measures how quickly carbohydrate foods are broken down into glucose. The original purpose for the glycemic index was to help diabetics keep their blood sugar under control. The glycemic index has recently attracted a lot of attention in the bodybuilding, fitness and weight loss world and has even become the central theme in numerous best-selling diet books as a method to choose the foods that are best for losing body fat.

According to advocates of the glycemic index system, foods that are high on the GI scale such as rice cakes, carrots, potatoes, or grape juice are "unfavorable" and should be avoided because they are absorbed quickly, raise blood sugar rapidly and are therefore more likely to convert to fat or cause health problems. Instead, we are urged to consume carbohydrates that are low on the GI scale as black eye peas, old fashioned oatmeal, peanuts, apples and beans because they do not raise blood sugar as rapidly.

While the GI does have some useful applications, such as the use of high GI foods or drinks for post workout nutrition and the strong emphasis on low GI foods for those with blood sugar regulation problems, there are flaws in strictly using the glycemic index as your only criteria to choose carbs on a fat loss program.
