3 Weird Memorial Day BBQ Tip

By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES

It's summer time and you know what that means: Barbecues!

There is just something special about hearing the sizzle of the meat…

The taste of roasted veggies…

And, of course, the time spent with family and friends.

But what you may not know is that meat that you are about to serve to your guests may be filled with cancer-causing chemicals….

Grilling Meat and Health
Typically, you think of grilling as a great way to cut down on the fat, and make your meal healthier.

But a recent study shows, when the juices or fat from the meat drips down and hits the hot coals, it produces a chemical – called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).

PAH has been shown to cause cancer and other negative health impacts.

By grilling your meat and letting the juices run free, you run the risk of destroying not only your health - but everyone’s you’re grilling for.

So what can you do?

Here are THREE ways to cut down on dangerous PAH exposure…

1. Wrap It Up
If you want to cut down on PAH exposure, then you should wrap your meat in tinfoil before placing it on the grill.

This will prevent the juices and fat from falling onto the hot coals, and exposing you to this dangerous carcinogen.

Plus, it will create soft and tender meat that EVERYONE will enjoy!

2. Cook MORE Fish
Fish is a perfect food that should be INCREASED in everyone’s diet and cooks much faster than red meat does.

This decreases the amount of PAH that is produced, therefore reducing your overall exposure.

Besides that, fish such as salmon, mackerel, and other fatty fish, contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids – like the kind in EFA Icon Krill oil – that may give you a double shot of health benefits.

3. Cook On the OPPOSITE End
If you really want to reduce PAH exposure, then you should cook with gas.  However, if you MUST cook with charcoal, here is a bit of advice: move all the charcoal to one end and cook your food on the opposite end.

This will allow the juices to fall harmlessly below without hitting the hot coals, therefore cutting down on your exposure to PAH.

Three Ways to Create a Healthy BBQ
Summer time is the perfect time to get outside and BBQ with friends and family.

So be sure to include these THREE tips and significantly reduce your exposure to PAH.

This will keep you and your guests healthier and coming back for more!

3 reasons you’re not losing fat

You already know that you can’t out train a bad diet. That’s why you need a recipe, a plan to dice up your abs so you’ll feel confident to be seen on the beach. And it’s MORE than just a workout plan.

If you just “workout”, you could actually increase your cortisol, which will force your body to store more fat. You don’t want that.

You see it all the time. People work their butts off (figuratively that is, because at the end of the day their flabby butt is still there). They train and wonder ‘why am I not getting lean?’

Let me tell you why…three reasons:

#1 Backward Body Composition

People just like you and I trade fat for muscle as we age. This tanks our metabolism because our muscle is metabolically active while fat is dead ugly weight.

Unfortunately, it’s easier to lose muscle than it is to lose fat. Our bodies PREFER to use lean muscle tissue for energy over our belly fat.

But with a strategic combination of high intensity interval training, strength training and a nutrition plan that works synergistically with these workouts, you can actually force your body to harness belly fat as energy buy putting your metabolism into Afterburn.

#2 Hormone Havoc

Fat storing hormones like cortisol wreak havoc with belly fat and in today’s high stress world this hormone is at an all time high. Hormones that can promote fat burning like growth hormone and testosterone (women should have a healthy level of testosterone as well) decline with age but can be naturally boosted with the right kind of exercise. (This does NOT include things like running on the treadmill that actually increase fat storing hormones like cortisol.)

#3 Poor Eating

No matter what your exercise plan, if you’re not backing it up with solid nutritionally dense food, your plan will fail. And when it comes to eating, failing to plan is planning to fail, especially when your diet is too restrictive.

That’s why my friend, Shawna K who is more ripped and in better shape than most 20-year olds (she’s 50!), included her Challenge Fat Loss Nutrition Tactics along with her Challenge Fat Loss program that uses a brand NEW M2A method.

Other diet plans are too restrictive and don’t allow any wiggle room. Now when you use a combination Shawna’s workouts that manipulate your hormones to promote fat loss and her nutrition tactics to speed up your metabolism, you’ll see rapid results, no matter your age – Shawna is living proof.

Her workouts are only 20 minutes long, which is why they work so well. They promote the “good” hormones, while reducing the fat-storing hormones like cortisol because the workouts are so short.

However, they STILL use a combination of high intensity interval training and strength training. How is this possible? It’s because she uses M2A, which is a new science-based approach that allows you to work out in only 20 minutes but still getting results as if you worked out for 60 minutes.

When you team up M2A (Muscle Metabolism Acceleration) along with her nutrition tactics, you’re in for a total body transformation.

But it won’t be easy…

This is a workout program that will challenge you every step of the way, but in progressive ways. Best of all Shawna is going to be there with you through every exercise, every set, and ever rep right there with you to motivate, coach and guild you along.

You’ll make small manageable changes to your eating plan and you’ll use the M2A system to build lean, athletic muscle and naturally increase fat burning hormones like GH and testosterone and reduce fat storing hormones like cortisol…

… in only 20 minutes per workout!

It’s scientifically based and proven. And this week, you can get all of Shawna’s M2A workouts and her Challenge Fat Loss Nutrition Tactics for half off.

The cure for your slow metabolism

 If you think that all you have to do in order to lose fat is to burn more calories than you consume...
... sorry, you're wrong.
Think about it - if it were that easy, wouldn't we all be walking around with six-pack abs and without the thousands of books on diet and exercise?
And no, you don't have to work out more to burn more fat, that's a lie too. Although on paper, that seems the most obvious thing to do.
In fact, it's why we end up even more frustrated... we work out longer and still... NOTHING.
This is especially true as we age... But because of how our hormones work as we get older, working out longer can actually cause you to STORE more fat.
The "bad guy" hormone is cortisol, a hormone that actually PROMOTES fat storage AND muscle breakdown. And longer workouts create more of this hormone in your body. Now if you're 19 and shredded, you probably don't have a problem with cortisol. But for most of us, those days are gone, and so our workouts need to change.
So if you're not seeing the results in the mirror, it's not your fault. You simply just need to "shift" your hormones into fat burn mode with shorter workouts. But it's not as simple as just cutting your workouts short.
To maximize your fat burning and muscle sparing hormones like growth hormone, you'll need a combination of strength training and "just enough" high intensity interval training (HIIT). Too much of HIIT can have a negative effect, too.  
But when you use the perfect combination of these two approaches, you can actually fix your "slow" metabolism, which is holding you back from finally taking that stubborn layer of fat off. These simple shifts in your workouts can easily double your results.
On that page, you'll also see Shawna Kaminski, who uses these EXACT tricks to have flat, ripped abs and can knock out 25 pull-ups straight.
By the way, Shawna is 51 years old and smoking hot!
You'll also discover her brand new systematic approach to shift your hormones with science-based 20-minute workouts with the PERFECT blend of high intensity interval training and strength training that promotes fast fat loss and NOT cortisol like other programs. It's all a part of her new Challenge Fat Loss program.
And right now, it's HALF off!.
In addition to all of her FOLLOW-ALONG Challenge Fat Loss workout videos, she's also giving you the ultimate 48-hour Challenge Diet. You'll discover exactly what to eat every day to burn the most fat ever in just 14 days.
Here's the best part... you can eat whatever you want on certain days with NO guilt.
But there's a catch...
... her 48-Hour Challenge Diet is only available TODAY when you pick up her Challenge Fat Loss Workouts. Shawna wanted to give the serious action-takers something special on day one of her official launch.
