Outsmart Sneaky Sugars to Lose Fat Fast!

If you're eating healthy, but just can't seem to lose weight, you're not alone. Sugar is the single biggest needle mover when it comes to your health and the number on the scale, but sugar hides in places you'd never expect: whole foods, diet foods, packaged foods, dressings . . . even sugar substitutes. And it's not enough to cut out or cut back on sugar-you have to cut out the right kinds of sugar.
In this groundbreaking book, New York Times bestselling author JJ Virgin explains the powerful concept of Sugar Impact: how different sugars react differently in the body. High Sugar Impact foods cause weight gain, energy crashes, and inflammation. Low Sugar Impact foods fuel your body for prolonged energy and promote fat burning. This eye-opening book pinpoints the most damaging sugars that we eat every day-without even realizing it-in common foods like skim milk, diet soda, whole-grain bread, and "healthy" sweeteners like agave.
By swapping high Sugar Impact foods for low Sugar Impact foods you will shed fat fast-up to 10 pounds in 2 weeks!-and transform your body and your health for good. Best of all, you don't need to eliminate sugar completely or count calories. Prepare to:
  • Lose the bloat
  • Target belly fat
  • Rev your metabolism
  • Cut cravings
  • Become a fat burner, not a sugar burner
  • Lose fat fast-and forever!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

acids from your fat storage (something called lipolysis). So the buzz and energy you get from caffeine, or that you used to get before you needed it just to feel normal, is due both to the shot of adrenaline and these fatty acids floating around serving up energy to burn. So it’s no surprise that most research points to evidence that our beloved, humble coffee is linked to lower weight. But what’s really interesting is that studies show in the long run caffeine actually improves your insulin

in salad dressings, sauces, dips, and marinades. It can have as many as four times the number of calories in a cup as regular cider vinegar! So proceed with caution, whether you’re using balsamic vinegar or its kissing cousin balsamic vinaigrette, which, as a salad dressing, can have added sugar, oil, and seasonings. TOMATOES—NOT JUST FOR RATING MOVIES Tomatoes seem like they’re more at home in the veggie bin, though technically they’re a fruit. But whether you say to-may-toe or to-mah-toe,

of berries to your shake Swap your quinoa for quinoa pasta Have a glass of dry red wine with dinner EXAMPLE 2: Have guacamole with bean chips for a snack Toss an orange in your shake (vanilla + orange—think 50/50 bar!) Trade your legumes for a sweet potato Add one high-SI serving at the end of the week and deploy the three-bite rule (take three polite bites—bites you’d be comfortable having if you were being watched on national live TV—and put the fork down!) At the end of the week,

improve. The easiest way to do that is to throw on some kind of tracking device, which can be as low-tech as a simple $20 pedometer or as high-tech as a Fitbit. All you need to know is how many steps you actually take each day. Count them every day for a week, add them up, divide by 7, and you have your average steps per day. Add 10% to your total, and that will be your new goal each week. If you were averaging 4,000 steps a day, add 400 to it for a target of 4,400 for the week. The following

week, the goal will be 4,840. This way you don’t even notice the extra effort, but your body will! Do that until you’re hitting at least 6,000 steps a day. The more the merrier, so don’t hold back. Once you’re moving more, up the intensity. I like to say burst to blast fat! Four minutes of bursting, or high-intensity interval training, is worth 20 minutes of regular aerobic training. You can get a beach body in just 15 minutes, three times a week. Researchers at the University of New South Wales
