This is Step 1 of his now famous "5 Steps" -- and it scares a lot of people.
Why? Well, I think it's because most of us have never done it. The thought of going without food seems quite foreign, yet we are willing to starve ourselves indefinitely with our dieting.
However, fasting is a crucial part of prepping your system for fat loss and hormonal restoration.
Now, here's the good news --
He has found an alternative.
You'll have to follow the rest of the Steps in his best-selling book of course, but this can replace Step 1 if you really are against fasting.
- - The Modified Toxin-Free Fast - -
Jon's not a vegetarian. However, he has been on what amounts to an "ovo-lacto" toxin-free nutrition plan several times.
That means he consumes no meat, but does eat organic dairy and organic eggs.
The purpose of this system of "toxin fasting" is, well, just that -- let your body clean itself out by removing toxins that are found in all meats.
Unless you're eating farm-raised, grass-fed beef and chicken, you have a lot of hormones and toxins in your food. Sorry, but that's the way it is.
However, using a few supplements and the rest of his "Simply Eat!" steps, you can "eat and fast" at the same time.
The "fast" is from toxins, not from food.
There is a highly specific way to do this. Most vegetarian diets are far too high in carbs and far too low in healthy fats. Jon's cured that using just FOUR RECIPES, along with fruit and veggies to snack on. You have all you need for the ten days he recommends.
Ten days to a less toxic body, and you can eat all you want. How's that for a win-win?
Plus you'll feel amazing.
Here's his 72-hour offer --
Pick up "Simply Eat!" right now if you haven't done so already --
For everyone who has a copy of his book on or before THIS SUNDAY AT MIDNIGHT, Jon will email you a freee copy of the dietary he is using for his Toxin Fast, along with the supplements (only a few) that he highly recommends.
(Note -- Jon does not sell supplements. These are only professional recommendations.)
He'll also include the FOUR DETOX recipes he uses. They all taste absolutely amazing. That's all you need -- the rest of the plan centers around single-ingredient foods.
Go for it -- I am!
P.S. Jon is serious about Sunday midnight. Considering "Simply Eat!" is only $15.15 for another few weeks, which is less than most of you spend on TWO meals, it's a complete no-brainer offer.

Do Diet Sodas Make You Fat?
by Jon Benson
I stumbled across this study today and, to be honest, the results did not surprise me. As a "diet sodaholic", something I still struggle with from time to time, I can testify that diet sodas will make you fat.
This study does not cover the metabolic reasons why, so let me give you just a few. First, the body is not easily fooled. Artificial "anything", especially sweeteners, can trigger the exact hormonal mechanisms as the real deal. In this case, the hormone insulin is often spiked by aspartame and Splenda. This leads to a greater amount of fat being stored.
That's not all. The resulting biochemical reactions stimulates appetite. Just as any spike in insulin (or in adrenaline from caffeine) can do, these reactions will cause you to desire more food. They also blunt the appetite mechanisms that signal the brain that you are full. In short, you eat more food than you normally would.
I have seen this in myself first-hand and I discuss it in detail in my book. No doubt about it -- if you want to get leaner, can the sodas. Diet, non-diet, and anything in-between. Water is your best bet, just as this study concludes.
FROM: San Antonio Express-News
The prevalence of obesity has reached epidemic proportions and many Americans are making efforts to side-step extra calories. They are turning to diet soft drinks -- Diet Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper and Sprite -- as their beverage of choice.
But is this a wise health choice?
Perhaps not, for according to a study by researchers at the University of Texas San Antonio, middle-aged adults who drink diet soft drinks may be drastically increasing their risks of gaining weight later on.
Diet Soda Discovery
The study monitored the weight and soda-drinking habits of more than 600 normal-weight patients aged 25-64. When researchers followed up on the patients some eight years later, they discovered:
- - Participants were 65 percent more likely to be overweight if they consumed one diet soda a day compared to if they drank none.
- - Two or more low- or no-calorie soft drinks raised the odds of becoming obese or overweight even higher.
-- Those who drank diet soda had a greater chance of becoming overweight than participants who drank regular soda.
The solution? Simply drink more water!

All About Abs - Ab Training
Exercises for Variety and Development Step by Step Abdominal Training Explained
Concept #1: How Many Times Per Week to Train Abs
Do you remember hearing somewhere that in order to get the abdominals you want; you've got to train them everyday? I know I heard that from several sources. None of those sources had super ripped abs.
Fact: Many of the people who DO have ripped abs train them 1-3 times per week.
Train your abs 1-3 times per week. I would recommend training them after a smaller body part workout like chest and biceps and abs, or shoulder, triceps and abs. You can do them on your off days as well. Try to avoid doing them with legs as it's a major body part. Try to avoid doing them first as you'll need your stabilizers to be 100% when they are used in other compound exercises.
You probably already know this... your abs can be trained a bit more frequently then most other muscle groups because of two factors:
1. The muscle density is different allowing for different recovery time
2. 99.9% of programs do not encourage you to train abs to muscular failure
You don't want to train abs to muscular failure for the purpose of this guide.
Concept #2: How Many Exercises Per Session

What the heck is the problem with all these diet books, anyway?
I can think of five books that are current best-sellers, each promoting a special diet, and each contradicting the other four books.
What's a health conscious person to do?
I am always looking for a good way to simplify my food plan, burn more body fat, and still have a life outside the kitchen and gym.
This is a challenge any dieter faces...until now.
There is a great little "5 Step Handbook" you can pick up that literally works with any diet on earth.
And it will work for YOU.
You will discover how to make eating for health and fat-loss easier --and much more effective at the same time. Go see -- 5 Step Handbook
Just think -- 5 simple steps can literally work for anyone, from vegans to meat-eaters and everyone in-between.
How is this possible?
The author read over 500 books in his career on the subject of fat-burning. He worked with thousands of people as a nutritionist and fat-loss expert.
From all that, he narrowed it down to 5 fool-proof steps that you can apply with his eating system (or any other) to get the results you are after.
These 5 Steps are what every successful food program have in common. Every single one.
These insider secrets were enough to inspire me to help spread the news. I love them.
Go see - 5 Step Handbook

The Quick and Easy Way to Tone Up Your Abs - Part 2
By Marc David
All About Abs - Nutrition
First Class Eating Habits = First Class Abs 90% of Ripped Ab Gurus Have Fantastic Nutritional Habits
Why Nutrition is 90% or More of Your Success
Let me explain this particular concept as it seems that the current direction is to buy fat burning pills, ab machines and do daily training. The problem is with all that training and other facts is they will never have as much influence on the layer of fat covering your abdominals as a good metabolic meal will that helps your body burn away fat every day.
Turning your body into a fat burning furnace should be your #1 priority.
Eating 5-7 meals per day is critical in order to make your body a calorie burning machine; you must supply it with 5-7 small but frequent meals. The reason you do this is because you will be continually burning calories to utilize the food. Be cautious of portion size. Eat too much of anything and you’ll never see those abs!
The more meals you have, the more your body must use energy to burn it. It’s like a furnace. You will RAISE your metabolism simply by eating more frequently.
You see if your nutrition isn’t nearly perfect, your body will always store some fat. And that fat will most likely be kept in the abdominal region. The only way to get to the sub-10% body fat region is with rock-solid nutrition. Countless people cannot do this. Their eating habits are never correct, they don’t track what they eat and they do not have the discipline necessary to eat correctly all of the time (with some cheat meals in there of course). The group of people who can do that are competitive bodybuilders.
Does this mean you can’t do it? Heck no! You just need to be acutely aware that having a ripped abdominal region is about a low percentage of body fat. To get that low, your nutrition needs to be impeccable. The more disciplined you are, the more fat you’ll burn and the more muscle you’ll keep. The lower your body fat becomes, the more your abs will show.
It’s just that simple but it’s not that easy. In the next few steps, you are going to learn exactly what you need to do in order to turn your body into a fat burning machine.
