forgot what you thought you knew?

Burning Furnace Diet

Over the past few weeks we've been accepting quite a few new
students of my Fat Burning Furnace method.

We've finally caught up with most of our existing student's
questions, so we've begun accepting a flood of new students
looking to get lean, strong, and healthy in just a few
minutes each week.

You may be wondering why we are so flooded with questions
from new students, since I designed the Fat Burning Furnace
method to be as easy to understand and implement as humanly

Following the guidlines and roadmap I've laid out isn't very
difficult, in fact it's one of the easiest to understand
group of princples and systems available.

Still, there are some new students that come back to us
after a few weeks complaining that they're not seeing the
results they'd like. Yes, that's right. Not every single
person who becomes a FBF student sees the results they'd
like. Why?

Burning Furnace Diet

Because they're not following the FBF method! One student
asked me what they were doing wrong with their workouts.

I took a look at what they were doing and saw that it was
missing 2 of the three vital princples for success in fat
loss exercise. These are all laid out simply and repeated
several times in the FBF system, but they seemed to have
escaped this student entirely.

Sure, they bought the system, download the materials, maybe
even read through them. But then something bad happened.

Instead of accepting the concepts and principles in the FBF
system and giving them an honest effort, they allow their
pre-conceived notions about fat loss, health, and fitness to
create a barrier as they go through the material in the

So when they being to implement some of the techniques, they
modify them based on their past experience, or ignore some

While this may work for someone who knows a good deal about
this stuff already, it's not OK for most people expecting to
get maximum results.

Why is that? The concepts and secrets I teach are in many
ways so "against the grain" of what's commonly recommended
or what exists in most people's frame of reference on how to
get lean, strong, and healthy, that they're just going to
get mixed results.

What I want to impress upon you is this. When you download
and start reading my Fat Burning Furnace eBook, you have to
forget what you thought you knew about health and fitness
for a moment. Read through the secrets and concepts like a
child who is taking their first steps.

Those that do this are the ones who see immediate and
continuous improvement.

Hey, I used to think I knew alot about this stuff a few
years back when I was experiementing with various popular
routines and methods.

That was until I found the secrets and principles that I use
today to stay in top shape year round in just mintues per
week and without starving myself, counting calories, or any
of that other crap that will either not work or drive you
mad in the process.

By the way, if you haven't yet read my Fat Burning Furnace
guide, you need to go and do that right now.

I lost over 40 pounds of fat, totally reshaped my body,
boosted my energy and health immensely...and I did in just a
few months with workouts that last just 15-20 minutes
performed 2-3 times each week.

It took me years to learn all of the secrets I use...but you
can download my system right now and discover them for
yourself in just a few minutes here:

Watching carbs?

Burning Furnace Diet

I was shopping at my favorite healthy foods market the other
day and overheard a couple of ladies talking about a
particular packaged food product.

They were discussing the ingredients and then one of them
says something like "well it only has 10 NET CARBS, looks
good to me!".

Let me tell you, "Net Carbs" are one of the BIGGEST LIES
pushed on you by the food industry these days!

Here's what "Net Carbs" are supposed to be, what they really
are, and how to avoid falling for this SCAM that's keeping
you fatter...


The food industry likes to create fancy sounding 'buzzwords'
that grab your attention...then market all of their products
to you this way.

You know a little a while ago the diet trend switched from
low fat diets to low carb diets. Well, the food industry
giants were well aware of this and figured out a tricky
little way of telling you their products have less carbs
than they actually do!

Dozens of products on the shelves now are labeled with 'Net
Carbs' or 'Impact Carbs'. Again, these terms sound
official, but they're just made up marketing lingo from the
food industry.


The US FDA calculates carbohydrate content for any food by
subtracting grams of protein, fat, water, and ash from the
total weight of the food.

The number is then listed on the food label as total
carbohydrates. (this we can trust)

Food Manufacturers, however, calculate 'Net Carbs' by taking
total carbohydrates and subtracting fiber, glycerin, and
sugar alcohols (all forms of carbohydrates).

This 'calculation' makes it seem there are less
carbohydrates in their products, and suggests that the
products don't raise blood sugar and fat storing even though
they do!


'Net Carb' and 'Impact Carb' labeling has expanded to
hundreds of other foods and will make you think you are
eating fewer carbs and calories than you actually are.

Yeah, I would be ticked off too!

We should be cutting back or eliminating processed carbs
like added sugars (fructose), and stuff like cookies, cakes,
breads and pastas from refined flowers...BUT...

These unscrupulous food industry marketers would have you
believe that THEIR cookies and cakes, etc. are just fine and
dandy...that they are different because they have less 'Net

And now you know...well, that this is just a bunch of B.S.!

Alright, rant over... I hope this will help steer you clear
of some of the false buzzwords out there in your efforts to
live lean.

these 3 vegetables fight your belly fat..

Of course you know vegetables are good for you and help you
get and stay lean, but I'll bet you didn't know that there
is a specific type of vegetable that contains very specific
nutrients that actually help to fight against your stomach

Am I right? I thought so!

Let me explain what they are and how you can use them right

Burning Furnace Diet

Now here's how this whole 'belly fat blasting vegetables'
thing works:

There are certain chemicals in our food supply and our
environment, such as pesticides, herbicides, and certain
petrochemicals from household cleaners, cosmetics, etc. that
can act as xenoestrogens.

Xenoestrogens have an estrogenic effect which can wreak
havoc in your body, causing hormone balance disruptions for
both women and men.

This estrogenic effect that you are exposed to every day can
stimulate your body to store belly fat, along with many
other problems.

So here's where these specific vegetables come in handy...

Certain vegetables known as "Cruciferous" vegetables contain
unique phytonutrients such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C) that
help to fight against these estrogenic compounds-

-What are these vegetables?

That's the best part!

Broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage are
just a few...all readily available at most every grocery

And by fighting against these belly fat stimulating
estrogenic chemicals, these super veggies will help you win
the battle against stomach fat!

Alright, so get out there and eat your cruciferous
veggies...and tell your friends and family who how they too
can keep the belly fat away with these powerful

You are an Idiot!!!!!

Well, it's happened again. I've been taken to task by one
of my readers...called out, as it were, for recommending
that you shouldn't focus solely on animal products as your
main source of protein-

-not only that, but he actually called me an 'idiot' on
several popular health and fitness forums...

...check it out...

...Rob, that is BS. Animal proteins are known to have the
MOST satiating effect on a person, and you're gonna say
other wise? Are you actually gonna tell people to consume
most of their protein from incomplete plant sources with LOW
bioavailability? Wow. I loved what you have always written
about, until now.

And only 0.5g of protein per pound of body weight? Maybe
that's a good amount just for survival, but if you're trying
to gain muscle, then you'll need at least 1g per pound of
body weight.

Burning Furnace Diet

Sorry, it's a time-tested truth among bodybuilders, and I
can't believe it you are not only telling them they only
need 0.5g but you're telling them to go incomplete plant
protein style on top of that! You should read a little about
bodybuilding nutrition, before you go and give advice.

Yikes! Here's a guy with a STRONG opinion, eh? Well, let's
see if we can calm him down and help him burn off that thick
layer of bodyfat that he might still be trying to lose...

...First off, I am well aware of bodybuilding nutrition.
Successful bodybuilders are more often the result of
possessing out of this world genetics for building muscle
(long muscle bellies, etc.) and/or the use of various
performance enhancing drugs-

-If you don't understand this, you haven't been around
bodybuilders enough.

I had followed a so called "bodybuilder's diet" (for about
10 years) with loads of animal protein and most of what I
got was a bigger and fatter body. No one could even tell I
worked out at all...

...I was just another 'fat guy'!

But the point of my message here is not how to become a
successful most people are simply not
interested slipping into a speedo, spraying their body with
bronzers, and parading around on stage hoping their pecs
look more shapely to a group of judges.

In addition, nowhere do I recommend to not eat any animal
protein...that is just unrealistic. Hey, I like eating a
great tasting chicken breast or grass fed buffalo burger
just like the next guy...but-

-I AM making the r.ecommendation that you need to understand
that too much animal protein, from a nutrient standpoint,
often causes you to take in more calories overall as you
body will continue to seek out required nutrients that can't
be found in a slice of turkey.

This is an empowering principle that has helped many of my
readers to lose more fat faster.

Most people do not understand the real importance of plant
based foods in fueling the body (and all the nutrients that
come along with that).

Most people are hung up on animal proteins as the focal
point of every meal they eat. In order to get people to
understand that there is more to eating healthy than eating
chicken breasts, it is often required to over-emphasize the
importance of plant proteins...

..It was discovered almost 20 years ago that amino acids
obtained from food combine with amino acids n.aturally made
in the body.

Adequate amounts of amino acids will be obtained if eating
low amounts of animal products c.ombined with plant proteins
from unrefined grains, legumes, seeds, nuts and vegetables
eaten on a daily basis.

Regarding building I look like I had trouble
building muscle on a diet lower in animal proteins while
working out just twice a week for about 15 minutes per

Take a look at my before ph.oto on my website and you'll see
the result of my heavy reliance on large amounts of animal
proteins and 5-6 days a week of misguided workouts in the
gym.(If you haven't seen my before and after pics on my
website, go ahead and check it out).

I don't get any of those "fat guy" comments anymore...

Yeah, the total absence of animal proteins may inhibit
muscle growth slightly, but as I said, I am not recommending
no animal protein. I am leaner and stronger than I've ever
been in my life, versus the 10 or so years when I used to
eat a "bodybuilder's diet" as 252 pounds of walking blubber.

fat burning lesson from a couple of "Italian" guys?

Burning Furnace Diet

Due to the fact that many of my fat burning and fitness
secrets go against the grain of what most people are doing
these days, you can imagine I receive quite an array of
emails from doubters and skeptics.

In fact, I just got another one yesterday which basically
said, "hey, if your system is so good, why isn't e.veryone
doing it?".

They went on to say that they weren't going to become a
student until everybody else around them knew about my Fat
Burning Furnace system and she 'saw it on Op rah'. 'Saw it
on O.prah', I love that.

Well, you know what? I told this reader that she'll
probably never end up becoming a student because the methods
I teach are probably not going to become the norm in today's
fitness industry. Why?

Because the exercise secrets I teach only require 2-3 weekly
workouts of 20 minutes on average. This is not something a
gym or fitness center wants to tell their members. They
would much rather have them living there, 4,5,6 or even 7
days a week.

And the nutrition, mental, and behavior secrets I teach my
students don't make the 'get it all in a bottle' supplement
industry too happy either. That's because I teach reality
and what works n.aturally

I also told this reader to look back in history...typically
the best ideas take a long time to come to the forefront, if
ever. Perhaps the best two examples come from a couple of
Italian guys. No, it's not Mario or Luigi. I'm talking
about Columbus and Galileo.

Columbus proved that the world was indeed round and not flat
as was the commonly held belief at the time. And Galileo
showed that the earth revolved around the sun, not the other
way around, and was punished by the Roman Inquisition for

Others who supported his ideas were literally 'burned at the
stake' for having the same view. (Forgive me for the
rudimentary history lesson ;-))

Hey, if you're not already an FBF student and you want to
wait till you see me on O.prah to become a one, that's fine.
But you'll be missing out on the most efficient way to
getting and staying lean,strong,and healthy that I've ever
come across in my 10+ years of experimentation and research.

And while my company grows, I won't be able to work as
closely with each new student. So for now you really do
have a unique chance to get personal attention from me and
my Fat Burning Furnace team.

I'm not saying I'm Columbus or even Galileo, but I am half
Italian. So please, I beg you, if you aren't already a FBF
student don't decide to become one just yet, don't burn me
at the stake.

If you haven't read my Fat Burning Furnace guide yet, then
you need to go and do that right now.

One size fits all?

Burning Furnace Diet

Whenever I take on a new Fat Burning Furnace reader or
student, I'm often reminded of this basic principle of
health and fitness that most people overlook.

And that is, we're all the same, but we're all different.
How does that apply to getting lean, strong, and healthy,
and why is it important to understand?

It's true that we all have unique differences from one
another. I'm talking specifically about our metabolic rates
and our ability to lose fat or gain muscle.

We all achieve these things at different rates and have
different limits based our genetic programming.

Based on this, many in the fitness world would recommend a
totally different program or system for everybody. In fact,
there are a lot of programs out there that base their entire
systems on these differences alone.

But this is a mistake in my estimation. Why?

Besides being different, basic physiology tells us we are
also all essential the same...the chemical reactions that
take place within me take place in you, your neighbor, and
someone you've never met.

That means we respond very similarly to various stressors
like exercise, and to various nutritional elements as well.

The process of getting a suntan should help illuminate this
concept. While we all vary in terms of the rate at which we
can develop a tan, and ultimately how dark that tan will be,
we still require the same presence of intense sunlight to
get that tan.

(Yes, I know you can go to a tanning salon, but you get my
point). And we also require time away from that sunlight as
our bodies go through the same chemical process to build the

With these physiologic similarities in mind, we should
realize it is possible to create a baseline set of fat loss
and fitness rules and principles that we can adhere to that
will work for most everybody.

We can then adjust accordingly, based on that person's
ability to handle intense exercise, motivation level,
n.atural metabolic rate and so on.

But the differences are not to the extreme amounts that many
would have you believe. While continually working with new
and existing Fat Burning Furnace students, it's relatively
easy to adjust the baseline programs once they get started.

Some don't need any adjustment at all, while others improve
their success by tweaking their programs up or down a few

So, yeah, we're all different. But we're all human too.
Knowledge of this basic concept in health and fitness can
save you from years and years of wasted effort in the
"everybody's different" based fitness & diet routines.

If you haven't read my Fat Burning Furnace guide yet, then
you need to go and do that right now.

Will late nite eating make you fatter..

Okay, this is a little twist on the common 'eating late'
question, but can be answered in a similar fashion:

Burning Furnace Diet

First off, if we're talking about a late night meal that is
immediately after a workout (like in our reader's situation
above), there is nothing to worry about.

The most important meal of a workout day is the post workout
meal, as your body is primed to suck up every nutrient you
give it so it can begin the growth and repair process...


-this meal also teaches your body to store food as glycogen
in the muscles rather than as body fat.

So, eating a post workout meal late a night will actually
speed up your rate of fat burning.

Now, what about a regular old meal late at night?

Well, here's the skinny on this now age old question:

The best way to fuel your body for fat loss is to eat
smaller meals more frequently. And when this is done
properly, you almost always end up eating maybe an hour or
two before bedtime.

And this is OK. (You don't want to eat right before bed
because this will usually keep you awake longer anyway as
you body metabolizes the food you just ate!)

But, you do want to watch out and make sure this late night
meal doesn't include many carbohydrates.

Carbs are our fuel source, and we don't need many of them to
fuel us while we are

...try and keep that hour or two before bed meal higher on
the protein/healthy fat side of things.

Another thing to keep in mind is that this late night meal
must be part of your overall daily caloric intake. In other
words, it can't be an "added on" meal just because you're
hungry late at night.

Any surplus of calories will end up stored as fat, so as
long as your late night meal is higher in protein & heathy
fats vs. carbs, and one of your regularly scheduled meals or
snacks, you are good to go.

Also know that not eating for 4 hours or so before bed can
actually make it harder for you to build or even maintain
fat burning lean muscle eating before bed (when
done properly as described above) is actually one of the
best things you could do for overall fat loss.

Slow Down...

If you've followed my newsletter a while, or are an FBF
student, you know that slowing down your exercise will
actually speed up your phat loss and fitness results...

Burning Furnace Diet

...AND did you also know that slowing down how you eat will
also speed up your phat loss? Yeah, it's true! Check it

Research has shown again and again that the longer a food
stays in your mouth, the more quickly your taste buds will
get tired of the flavor...which in turn makes you satisfied
with eating less of it!

Go ahead and use a smaller fork and take smaller bites to
push this effect to the max...

When you start applying this to all of your daily meals and
snacks, you'll automatically eat less without really
noticing, which can lead to faster fat, you'll
actually get ot enjoy the tastes of your food a lot more
than if you eat rapidly like most folks do these

Alright, I've gotta go, so enjoy the call and I'll be back

Why am I Fat!!

Let's face it.

If you looked and felt your best... you wouldn't be reading this.

You're here because you carry around an extra 15... 30 or even 60 pounds of ugly fat.

And you're tired of it.

Maybe you packed it on over the last 20 years... maybe it's all new weight.

It doesn't matter. Either way, you hate what you see when you look at yourself in the mirror...

Or worse. You don't even look in mirrors anymore.

I wish I could find something that worked for me

Burning Furnace Diet

A few years ago I had a pal who always struggled with his
weight and would try just about every fad diet or latest
exercise gimmick under the sun to remedy his troubles. He
was a low carber for a while.

Then he was doing Tae Bo when that was big. Next he tried
restricting other essential foods in the hope of burning off
body fat. And a few months later, he was back to the low
carb routine, but this time almost no carbs.

You know the story...he would tell me he'd been losing
weight on his new diet and was all excited about it. Then a
few weeks later when his body just couldn't stand the
restrictions and unusual eating habits, he'd be forced to go
off that diet.

Then one day while we were at lunch he was lamenting about
the fact that he'd gained the weight he'd lost back rather
quickly since going off his latest diet. So he was going to
go back on the low carb strategy once again. Coincidentally,
it was around this time that I was assembling all of the
research and experimentation I had been doing on the Fat
Burning Furnace system.

So I brought up the fact that I had uncovered some a.mazing
techniques that allowed me to lose 40+ pounds of fat and
develop a lean, muscular and healthy body. I explained that

I could help with his situation and how easy it would be to
implement. And that's when I heard it. "I wish I could find
something that worked for me", he said. After that he
promptly placed his order with the waitress for a "low carb"
meal. 15 h.ot wings.

A path to success was literally staring him in the face, but
all he could say was that he wished he could find something
that worked for him...and gobble down 15 h.ot wings. I
began to help him each day by feeding him some of my FBF
secrets...but you know what? He didn't use any of them. He
didn't change a darn thing.

I realized a long time ago that even if you put the right
information in the palm of someone's hand, it's ultimately
up to them to take action and get to the doing part of it.
And most people don't take action...most people don't get to
the doing part. My pal sure didn't.

Burning Furnace Diet

I also realized that getting and staying lean, strong, and
healthy for life requires more than just a few tricks or
tips. What is really required is a changing of what's at the
core of one's struggles with their health and fitness.

And in most cases at that core is the person's basic
lifestyle. How they eat, sleep, exercise, etc. I'm talking
about the core values of how they live. This is very, very,
very different from going on a diet or trying the latest
aerobic exercise craze.

If you take the steps to create a new lifestyle in the place
of your old one, you're solving problems at the source,
which is essential if you want lasting and powerful results.
But again, you have to get to the doing part of it.

As I've said many times before, if you don't change what
you're doing today, you absolutely will not change your
tomorrow. My Fat Burning Furnace techniques and secrets
help you to do that.

If you haven't read my Fat Burning Furnace guide yet, then
