3 of the Best Ways to Burn Fat and Get "Toned" Fast

Want to quickly improve the way you look in a safe, healthy way? Below you'll find a few of the best ways to burn fat and tone up your muscles very fast. Enjoy!

1. Get on a starch-free diet.

One of the simplest and healthiest ways to lose body fat quickly while improving the way you look and feel is to stop eating starchy carbs for awhile. Starches contain lots of calories and often have negative effects on your body and fat levels. Simply stop eating starches and you could lose several pounds and inches very quickly. That means no bread, cereals, pastas, potatoes, rice, etc. Focus on lean proteins, unprocessed carbs (especially vegetables and fruits), and healthy oils (eg. olive oil, coconut oil, avocado, etc.).

2. Start drinking LOTS of water.

Try to drink a gallon of water per day in the form of plain water, sugar-free teas (especially green tea), and sparkling water spritzers. Besides killing your hunger while boosting your energy, drinking this much water will speed up your metabolism and help you lose several pounds fast. Your muscles will also be fully hydrated and look more toned.

3. Do full-body circuit training workouts.

2-4 times a week do a short, higher-intensity workout based around full-body circuit training. Focus on light-to-medium free weights and/or bodyweight exercises. Train all your major muscles groups in each workout. This will burn more calories while forcing your body to produce powerful hormones that stimulate the metabolism and increase lean muscle mass 24 hours a day!

Ab Circle Pro Reviews: Does This Ab Gadget Actually Work?

Do you want to burn belly fat, get a flat stomach, and create sexy "six pack" abs in the next few weeks? Well the makers of the new Ab Circle Pro promise you that you can do exactly that if you use their product consistently. This new "infomercial" fitness product is literally exploding in popularity and lots of our readers have been asking for reviews of this new ab gadget. Some have even sent in their own reviews, testimonials, ratings, opinions, and comments. (Don't worry, we'll be posting all of them in the very near future.)

Unlike most ab machines, the Ab Circle Pro doesn't involve laying around on your back, raising your head, shoulders, knees, legs, arms, toes, or any other bodily appendage in an attempt to exercise the abdominal muscles. What it does involve is holding onto a pair of handles, with your knees resting on pads connected to a circular "sliding rail" system. You then swing your legs side to side in a circular motion that, at least theoretically, activates, exercises, and strengthens your abs in a very efficient way while simultaneously giving you a fat-burning cardio workout.

(No, we're not making that up. It really works like that. Check out the video below if you don't believe us!)

Like the relatively new "Ab Coaster", another innovative ab-strengthening machine, the Ab Circle Pro aims to get you up off the floor doing exercises that target the lower abdominal muscles. Fitness trainers and exercise experts have long know that the hanging leg raise is probably the single most effective ab exercise out there. The problem is that hanging from a bar isn't something most people are willing or able to do on a consistent basis. Yes there are all kinds of arms straps, wrist straps, "wings", and other assorted items out there to help, but the fact remains that hanging leg/knee raises are hard to do. Most people want to burn stomach fat and get sexy abs, but they're not willing to do things that are too difficult.

This is why products like the Ab Circle Pro (and the Total Core, Ab Rocket, Ab Coaster, Ab Roller, Ab Lounge, etc.) do so well (at least sales-wise). They turn difficult ab movements like crunches, sit-ups, and leg raises into significantly less difficult, machine-assisted movements. Does the Ab Circle Pro work? Sure, almost definitely... if you use it. In fact we've received quite a few Ab Circle Pro reviews from happy customers who are using the product on a consistent basis and seeing great fat loss and ab-strengthening results.

But, again, it all comes down to whether or not you actually use it. The Ab Circle Pro will do you no good hiding under your bed or stuffed away in the hallway closet. The same can be said for all ab gadgets, fitness machines, and home gyms. Don't be one of those people who buys the Ab Circle, uses it for a week, and then forgets all about it. Let's be certain about one thing: these machines might make exercise easier to do, but it's still exercise. You're not going to magically lose your abdominal fat and get ripped abs just because you decided to pull out your credit card and buy something. You need to actually open the box, unpack it, put the thing together, and get to using it on an almost daily basis.

Don't forget, when you make an exercise easier you almost always also make it less effective. So in the end you'll need to swing those hips and flex those abs on the Ab Circle Pro's "Friction Free Track" quite a lot. Probably at least every other day or so. The people we've heard from who've gotten good results are using it quite often. And, OF COURSE, they're not eating corn chips and drinking a gallon of cola every day. Every single one is eating a clean, healthy diet and doing other forms of effective exercise (like jogging and weight training).

Here's one of the better Ab Circle Pro reviews we've received:

"Hey guys! I thought you might want to share my own ab circle pro review with your readers. I bought mine in May and started using it the first week after it arrived. It's about the 4th or 5th ab machine I've purchased and I have to say that so far I like it alot! At least I actually enjoy using it. I can definitely feel it in by abdominals and obliques when I'm on it. If I listen to some upbeat music I can usually get a pretty decent cardio workout on it. Of course like all the other "exercise" things I've bought you definitely get a little tired of doing the same thing over and over again. But I'm also going to the gym and playing tennis a few times a week so the Ab Circle isn't my only source of exercise! Anyway, after less than a month of using it I give the Ab Circle Pro about a 7 out of 10 stars, which is actually a way better rating than I'd give any of the other ab products I've bought. I'll keep using it and hopefully finally get that flat sexy stomach I've been working toward for a loooong time!"

5 Ways to Lose 15 Pounds in 2-3 Weeks

Here are 10 ways to lose 15 pounds in the next 2 to 3 weeks...

1. Keep it fun. Seriously. It is way easier to lose weight fast if you enjoy the process, instead of trying to force yourself to endure days and weeks of "torture"!

2. Get energized. High energy levels equals faster fat loss, that's all there is to it. Get plenty of sleep and drink lots of pure water every day. Take a healthy energy booster containing green tea extract, natural caffeine, high-dose B vitamins, and preferably yerba mate.

3. Get motivated. Motivated people lose 15 pounds in 2 or 3 weeks. Unmotivated people workout for a couple days, eat a healthy, fat-burning meal every once in awhile, and are lucky to lose 5 pounds in a month. Write down your goal on paper and read it often. Look at photos of lean, fit, and sexy people. Watch motivational videos on Youtube. Do whatever it takes to build and maintain your motivation.

4. Go paleo. If you eat nothing but "paleo" foods, you'll easily lose at least 15 pounds really fast... like within the next 14 days. That means natural, unprocessed, whole foods: lean meats, fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. If you must have starch, choose only beans and legumes. They're so packed with fiber and good carbs that they don't negatively affect your blood sugar and metabolism like grains and potatoes do.

5. Do full-body circuit training. The best exercise for burning fat and losing 15 pounds in 2 weeks is full-body circuit training based around medium weights and/or bodyweight exercises (e.g. pullups, dips, pushups, squats, lunges, etc.). Full-body strength training is a proven fat blaster and metabolism booster. It not only helps you lose weight quickly, it also tones and tightens your muscles fast so you look fitter, leaner, and sexier!

An Easy Way to Lose 10-15 Pounds Really Fast

People are always looking for easy ways to lose weight fast. The truth of the matter is that it's not always necessarily "easy" to lose weight, but it's also not nearly as difficult as most people make it out to be. By using the simple and proven techniques below you can lose 10 to 15 pounds within just a few weeks. Give them a try next time you want to burn off some ugly body fat, tone and tighten your muscles, and basically just look better very quickly!

4 Easy Ways to Lose 10 to 15 Lbs Fast

Eat a Clean, Starch-Free Diet

For the next couple of weeks, cut out all the starchy carbs from your diet. While you're at it, also skip all simple sugars and processed flours (e.g. "white" wheat flour). Eat only lean proteins, fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, and healthy fats/oils (e.g. virgin olive oil). No starches, sugars, or dairy. Definitely no fried foods. By eating like this you will lower and stabilize your blood sugar and insulin levels. You'll also allow your body to detox, rev up its metabolism, burn extra calories efficiently, and lose fat quickly.

Go Raw

Eat LOTS of raw fruits, especially raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Eating large amounts of unprocessed raw foods is a very healthy way to lose 10-15 pounds fast. These foods are packed to the brim with healthy fibers and natural enzymes -- not to mention vitamins and minerals -- that make it much easier to lose fat quickly.

Do Smart Exercise Often

Do some form of higher-intensity, efficient exercise 5 or 6 days a week. Focus on doing short bursts of intense exercise followed by brief rest/recovery periods. This form of "interval training" is one of the best ways to burn fat and speed up your metabolism so that you can lose pounds faster. Every workout should last at least 20 minutes and no longer than 45 minutes. Do both cardio training and full-body strength training to get rid of fat in the fastest and easiest way possible.

Use the Power of Momentum

One of the secrets to achieving fast weight loss results is to build up powerful momentum and keep it going until you've achieved your fat loss goals. Start by creating simple daily lists of "must do" activities related to exercise, diet, and fitness. Create a "Big 3" list of daily activities that will move you toward your weight loss goals quickly. Something like: workout for 25 minutes, eat 6 protein-rich meals, drink 60 ounces of water. Every day that you're able to check off all the items on your Big 3 list will add to your own momentum. Eventually these things will become habits and you'll lose those 10 to 15 pounds very fast!

The Best Way to Lose Body Fat Fast

Looking for the best way to lose body fat fast? Well it's all about boosting your metabolism naturally, eating a clean diet, and burning fat efficiently with smart exercise. You don't need to -- and never should -- starve yourself, overdo it on exercise, and/or take handfuls of expensive (sometimes dangerous) diet pills/fat burners/appetite suppressants/etc.

Here is the best way to lose body fat quickly and in a safe, healthy way...

Strength train -- Regular strength training not only burns lots of fat, it also boosts your metabolism while increasing your overall fitness. It also tightens and tones muscle which can make you look a lot leaner quickly.

Do efficient interval-based cardio -- Interval-based cardio such as HIIT burns A LOT of calories and fat in a short amount of time. It also helps to protect vital lean muscle tissue and a healthy metabolism. Simply put, it's the best type of exercise for losing body fat fast... so do it often!

Eat natural, unprocessed foods -- If you eat mostly whole, natural, unprocessed foods you will lose weight fast and, best of all, you won't have to worry too much about calories. Focus on lean meats, fruits and veggies, nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, and healthy fats from things like avocado, olive oil, unrefined coconut oil, etc.

Limit your carb intake -- Limit your intake of starchy carbs and eliminate all highly-processed carbs, including refined sugars, white flours, etc. Cycle/rotate you intake of healthy starches like baked potatoes and whole grains in a way that confuses the metabolism and keeps it boosted.

Eat often -- Try to eat a small, protein-rich, fiber-rich meal or snack every 2-4 hours. This will keep your metabolism revved up and help you avoid hunger and food cravings.

Plan ahead -- Plan your meals and workouts in advance. Develop habits and get into a fitness routine so that you don't have to think or make tough choices, especially regarding your food and meals.

Keep it simple -- Losing fat fast basically comes down to doing 3 simple things on a consistent basis: full-body strength training, interval-based cardio exercise, and eating a clean, unprocessed diet. Don't complicate the process. Just KISS and you'll be successful!

The Best Way to Lose Stomach Fat Fast

Looking for the best way to lose stomach fat fast? Well it has nothing to do with starving yourself, popping diet pills, or buying expensive exercise equipment. What it does have to do with is eating a clean, healthy, energy-boosting diet and doing smart exercise often. Follow the 3 tips below next time you need to get rid of your stomach fat in a fast, safe, and healthy way...

1. Cut the carbs.

You don't need to cut out all carbohydrates but you do need to cut out the "bad" carbs, especially refined sugars and flours. You should eliminate or at least reduce your intake of all processed carbs, even whole grain products, since most people are able to burn off abdominal fat faster without the negative effects most processed carb foods can have in the body (e.g. raising insulin levels). Finally, you should learn to limit and cycle your intake of starches (potatoes, rice, grains, etc.) so that your metabolism is confused and forced to burn calories at a higher rate.

2. Boost your energy.

More energy equals better fat loss results in less time. Boost your energy naturally by getting plenty of sleep, drinking lots of pure water, eating large amounts of raw/living foods, and consuming natural caffeine, such as green tea and green tea extract. You might also want to start drinking lots of "lemon water" and doing some form of light exercise for a few minutes every morning.

3. Do interval-based workouts.

You should try to do some form of smart, "efficient" exercise at least 4-6 times a week. The best form of exercise to lose stomach fat fast is interval-based exercise, where you do short bursts of higher-intensity activity followed by active recovery periods. This burns calories and belly fat more efficiently, plus it causes powerful hormonal and metabolic changes in the body that allow you to lose pounds and inches even when you're sleeping!

Now you know the best way to lose stomach fat fast. By using the proven diet, exercise, and fitness tips outlined above you should be able to lose several pounds and most of your belly fat within just a few short weeks!

Losing Belly Fat Fast -- 3 of the BEST Tips to Burn Off Your Belly

Looking for some of the best tips for losing belly fat fast and getting a leaner, sexier body in less time? The techniques outlined below can help you get rid of your stubborn abdominal fat quickly, and in a way that boosts your metabolism and makes it easy to continue losing weight for as long as you want. Next time you need to lose some stomach fat give these proven tips a try...

Focus on Clean-Burning Foods

The best diet for losing belly fat fast is one based around natural, unprocessed, "clean burning" whole foods like lean proteins, good carbs (including vegetables, fruits, and beans), and healthy fats (like extra virgin olive oil and avocado). If you get most -- at least 90% -- or your weekly calories from these healthy "fat burning" foods you'll keep your blood sugar and insulin levels in check while giving your body an energy boost. You'll also be able to lose stomach fat very quickly!

Do Smart Exercise Often

Regular exercise is definitely one of the best ways to lose belly fat quickly. Besides burning calories and fat, daily exercise helps to lower stress levels -- meaning that your body produces less cortisol and other bad "belly fat-creating" hormones. Exercise -- especially vigorous, higher-intensity workouts -- also helps you sleep better. Studies show people who get more sleep tend to store less of their body fat in their abdominal area. The best forms of exercise for losing belly fat fast are: HIIT-style cardio, full-body strength training, and playing a sport that requires short bursts of higher-intensity activity (i.e. intervals).

Boost Your Energy

People who have high energy levels have a much better chance at losing their stomach fat quickly. Low energy leads to bad food/diet choices and skipped workouts. Focus on boosting your energy naturally by getting plenty of sleep (most people need at least 7 hours) and drinking lots of water during the day (60 ounces is a good amount to shoot for). Also, eat lots of living raw foods (mainly fruits and vegetables) and try to eat a protein-rich meal, snack, or shake about every 3 hours during the day. Absolutely avoid all refined sugars, flours, and fats. Consider taking a healthy energy supplement containing some form of natural caffeine, such as a green tea extract supplement. A caffeine-shot 30-45 minutes before a workout will help you exercise more intensely and also speed up your metabolism so you burn more fat for energy.

There you go! Now you know 3 of the best techniques for losing belly fat fast. If you use them on a consistent basis you should be able to lose at least 10 pounds of belly fat within the next few weeks. Good luck and getting going!

What Is the Fastest Way to Lose Weight?

It's definitely one of the most common fitness-related questions asked all around the world:

"What is the fastest way to lose weight?"

A very simple question with a relatively complex answer. The bottom line is that everyone is different. Different bodies, different personalities, different motivations. What helps your best friend lose 10 pounds super fast may not help you at all... and vice versa. One of the true "secrets" of fast weight loss is that everyone must figure out what works for them. There simply is no one universal "one size fits all" program, plan, or method that can truly be called "the fastest way to lose weight".

That being said, there are a handful of techniques that have been proven to help just about anyone burn fat and lose pounds in a very fast and relatively healthy way. Below is a simple outline of 3 of the best techniques for losing fat quickly. It's a very effective plan of attack that you can use to get rid of fat, lose inches, burn off your belly fat, tighten and tone your thighs, stomach, hips, arms, etc... and leave you with a boosted metabolism that will make it easier to continue losing weight and/or keep the weight you've already lost off of your body.

3 of the Best Fast Weight Loss Techniques

Laser Focus + High-Energy Action

When it comes to losing weight quickly, nothing is more important than laser-like focus and high-energy action. People who focus all their thoughts and energy on one achievable, short-term goal -- such as losing 10 or 15 pounds in a couple of weeks -- almost always experience tremendous success. Focus leads to better results in less time, it's as simple as that.

High-energy action is the other side of the equation. You must increase your physical and mental energy -- and then take "massive" action on a consistent basis -- in order to lose weight as fast as possible. That means stringing together several days, weeks, and even months of healthy eating and effective exercise in a way that leads to rapid fat loss.

The quickest and most-proven way to increase both focus and mental energy is to create a detailed goal statement that you read to yourself every day. Spend several minutes a day visualizing yourself having achieved your goal. Everyone time you find yourself becoming unfocused or "getting off track" go find a quiet spot and spend a few moments visualizing how great you'll look and feel once you've lost that ugly, stubborn, and dangerous weight.

Super Clean Diet

If there is truly a single fastest way to lose weight it would have to be eating a super clean diet based around lean proteins, "good" carbs, and healthy fats. Very clean eating leads to faster and easier weight loss 99% of the time. Almost all fitness experts agree: diet is at least 75% of the solution in all healthy weight loss programs. If you consistently eat a very clean, well-planned diet you will lose weight very quickly, no doubt about it.

For most people, the best diet for losing body fat fast is a low-carb -- or at least "lower-carb" -- eating plan with meals and snacks based around lean proteins, lots of fibrous carbs (e.g. vegetables, fruits, and beans), and decent amounts of healthy fats (e.g. virgin olive oil, natural peanut butter, avocado, etc.). All simple sugars, refined flours, and "bad" fats must be avoided completely (except for planned "cheat" meals, if you include them in your program). Most processed carbohydrates should be avoided. Healthy high-fiber starchy carbs (such as baked potatoes, oatmeal, and whole grains) should be limited and rotated or cycled in a way that "confuses" your metabolism in a way that keeps it elevated and burning calories 24 hours a day.

Ultra-Efficient Exercise

Efficient exercise, done on a regular basis, is definitely one of the fastest ways to burn fat and lose weight. The most-efficient and possibly "best" all-around form of exercise is interval-based exercise (sometimes called "variable-intensity" exercise). Interval exercise causes your body to burn more fat for energy than regular steady-intensity. On top of that, it creates powerful hormonal and metabolic changes in the body that protect vital lean muscle tissue while dramatically boosting the metabolism for many hours after you've completed a workout. If you really want to get rid of body fat, lose pounds, and create a lean and sexy body fast, make interval-based exercise a foundation of your fast weight loss program!

Ab Circle Pro: That Circle Ab Machine

Today a female friend asked me for my opinion on "that circle ab machine" she's been seeing on TV. I immediately realized that she was asking about the Ab Circle Pro, which has quickly become one of the top-selling fitness products in the US. She said that she wants to lose some belly fat, tone her muscles (especially those thighs), and get her abs in shape for summer. She also asked about the Ab Coaster Pro and the Ab Roller Pro, neither of which I had even heard of until today.

I told her that, since I haven't actually tried any of those new abdominal machines yet -- and had very little knowledge about the Ab Circle Pro, much less the other two -- I couldn't provide an honest answer. The handful of reviews I've seen and heard for the Ab Circle seem to paint a similar picture: it provides a decent abdominal workout and a good low-intensity cardio workout, but it costs a lot, leaves you with "knee burns", and is easy to get bored with.

Personally, the boredom part seems obvious to me. While it's true that some machines make exercise more fun, the vast majority of them simply make you do the same boring movement over and over again like a hamster on a wheel. That's one of the main reasons why I avoid most exercise/fitness machines and focus instead on different types of "free-form" exercise (like bodyweight movements and free weight exercises). That being said, I really don't know how the Ab Circle Pro and its repetitive movements feel to someone using the thing on a regular basis. Shoot, maybe it really is like a "treadmill for the abs" and feels great when you're on the thing!

Here's what I do know: all ab machines, and 95% of fitness/exercise gadgets for that matter, are designed to leave you wanting more. What I mean by that is that, in reality, those thousands of late-night infomercial fitness and weight loss products aren't really designed to be super-effective. If any one of them was actually that great and helped the average person lose weight, get toned, build muscle, get six pack abs, etc. then people wouldn't need to buy anything else. Then the companies that make these products would stop making money and cease to exist. The goal is always to offer a relatively inexpensive, easy-to-use product that provides -- or at least has the potential to provide -- some sort of tangible fitness benefit, but is easy to get bored/frustrated with quickly and slide under the bed, out of site, so that it's easy to forget you never really used it and really wasted your money.... :-)

Anyway.... I felt bad that I wasn't able to help my friend with a real review or even a simple rating of the Ab Circle Pro. If you've used this "circle ab machine" and want to help us out, please leave your reviews, ratings, testimonials, comments, opinions, etc. in the area below. Thanks!

Lose 15-20 Pounds Fast -- A Simple, Healthy, and Easy Way

Looking for simple, easy, and healthy way to lose 15 to 20 pounds fast? Use the tips below and you could easily lose several pounds of body fat in the next couple of weeks....

Cut out the Bad Carbs -- Most people can lose 10 or 15 lbs very quickly, simply by removing all the "bad" carbs from their diet. Start by cutting out all processed carbohydrates, especially refined sugars and flours, but also including grain products (bread, cereal, pasta, etc.). Next cut out all starchy carbs, including potatoes and rice, for the time being. After you've lost those first 15 pounds or so you can begin to cycle/rotate starches back into your diet.

Eat a Clean-Burning Paleo Diet -- Get most of your weekly calories from healthy paleo foods: lean proteins, eggs, fish, veggies, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Eat one cheat meal a week -- or one entire cheat day every 10 days -- to reward yourself and to confuse your metabolism so it doesn't adapt and slow down.

Fight Hunger With Fiber, Fats, and Protein -- Controlling your appetite and fighting off hunger/food cravings is vital if you want to lose 15 to 20 pounds fast. You can do that by eating lots of foods high in fiber, healthy fats, and/or lean protein. Some good examples of hunger-killing, fat-burning foods: natural peanut butter, nuts and seeds, raw fruits and vegetables, beans, legumes, and beef jerky. Always have some sort of healthy snack on hand and try to eat a small meal or snack every 2-3 hours.

Do Short Intense Workouts Often -- The best kind of exercise to burn fat fast and lose pounds easily is higher-intensity, interval-based exercise, such as HIIT. Interval workouts are actually much easier than long, slow, and boring "cardio" workouts, such as jogging. Intervals not only burn fat and calories, they also cause your body to pump out powerful fat-burning/muscle-building hormones that make it MUCH easier to lose those 15 to 20 pounds in a short amount of time!

Use the power of raw foods -- Eat lots of high-fiber raw foods every day. Also consider doing short 1-3 day raw juice fasts and/or raw food diets. Raw fruits and vegetables are packed with fat-burning nutrients and they help to detox your body while allowing you to lose pounds quickly.

Do interval-based exercise -- The best form of exercise for losing fat in a safe, healthy, and fast way is interval exercise. This ultra-effective form of exercise burns tons of fat and calories while causing powerful metabolic changes in the body that allow you to continue burning fat for several hours after you've completed a workout!

There you go: a few of the absolute best tips for fast, safe, and healthy weight loss. If you want to lose up to 10 pounds safely in the next couple of weeks, just give them a try. You'll end up with a faster metabolism and a leaner, fitter, and sexier body. Good luck!

Is the Ab Circle Pro for Real?

I've been seeing the ads and commercials for the "Ab Circle Pro" everywhere lately. At first glance it seemed like just another infomercial ab gadget offering promises of a fitness model's body and "six pack" abdominal muscles in just a few weeks. But this thing is definitely a little strange... er, I mean, "unique". Anyone who's seen the Ab Circle Pro commercials knows what I'm talking about.

There really isn't anything else like it out there. You sit on the thing on your knees and swing your hips around in a circular motion, apparently working your abdominals and leg muscles while also getting a fat-burning cardiovascular workout. Definitely seems interesting and, quite possibly, an effective piece of exercise equipment for getting a lean, fit, and tone body. I just don't know how long I would last on the thing!

The movement seems weird and a little too awkward to do on any consistent basis. Of course, the ultra-hotty fitness model/spokesperson for Ab Circle Pro -- the gorgeous Jennifer Nicole Lee -- makes it look super fun and effective. She assures us that it's the best thing out there for burning fat and getting great abs fast. Of course, she's paid a lot of money to say that... so who knows if she actually uses it herself!

The Ab Circle is made of heavy-duty steel, folds under a bed for storage, offers 3 levels of resistance, and has a "patent pending"
Friction Free Track... whatever that is. It also is guaranteed to help you lose 10 pounds in less than 3 days. (Just kidding about that last one!)

We plan to do some in depth research on this new piece of exercise equipment. It would be interesting to find out how it compares to the Ab Rocket, Total Core, and all the other abdominal machines out there. So if you have any reviews, ratings, tips, insight, or useful information please let us know by leaving a comment in the area below. Thanks!

If you use the proven fat-burning methods outlined below you'll be able to speed up your metabolism, burn off lots of stubborn body fat, and lose up to fifteen lbs in a very short amount of time. Here we go...

The Best Tips for Losing 15 Pounds Fast

1. Get motivated

When it comes to fast fat loss success, 90% of it is getting motivated and staying in the right mindset. Once you're motivated and have a positive frame of mind, the rest is relatively easy. Program your mind for success by writing out a simple goal statement. Something like: "I will lose 15 pounds by June 15th by eating a healthy diet and exercising daily". Read it at least twice a day. Post photos of people with fit, lean, sexy bodies where you'll see them often. Watch motivational movies and videos every day. Spend a few minutes visualizing success -- in this case you with 15 fewer pounds -- each day.

2. Get focused and build momentum fast

You must actively focus your thoughts and energy on losing fat. The more you focus, the faster you'll achieve great results. Keep your goal in mind at all times. Create a short list of "must do" activities -- all related to fitness, exercise, diet, etc. -- for each day of the week. Every day that you check off each of your must-do's is a successful day. Having many successful days in a row is what builds the kind of powerful momentum you'll need to lose 15 pounds fast!

4. Do a raw foods fat loss jumpstart

Use the power of raw foods to jumpstart your fat loss progress. Do a 1, 2, or 3 day raw foods diet and/or raw juice fast. Raw foods are packed with natural vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, and other nutrients that help to cleanse/detox your body, boost your energy, optimize your metabolism, and allow you to lose several pounds quickly.

5. Eat a clean-burning, paleo-based diet

Get most of your weekly calories from "paleo" foods: mainly whole, natural foods that contain lean protein, good carbs, and healthy fats. The best examples include lean meats, eggs, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and plant-based fats like olive oil and avocado. Also eat some natural high-fiber starches like beans, legumes, and sweet potatoes. Learn to cycle/rotate/shift/etc. your processed starches, including all grain products (breads, cereals, pastas, rice, etc.) in order to confuse/speed up your metabolism. Once ever 7-10 days have a "cheat day" where you can eat anything you want.

6. Do interval-based exercise often

Without a doubt, the best way to burn off fat and lose 15 pounds fast is to perform some type of interval-based exercise several times per week. Good examples are high-intensity interval training (aka "HIIT" cardio) and full-body circuit training, a type of strength/resistance training that burns lots of fat quickly. Besides burning huge amounts of calories and boosting the metabolism, interval-based workouts cause your body to produce large amounts of powerful steroid-like hormones, including human growth hormone (HGH) which makes is MUCH easier to burn fat while preserving vital lean muscle tissue (and a healthy metabolism).

7. Take the 3 best diet supplements

The best diet supplements for optimizing the metabolism, speeding recovery from tough workouts, and allowing you to lose 15 lbs fast are: whey protein powder, omega 3 fatty acids (e.g. fish oil), and quality multivitamin supplements. Forget about expensive and dangerous diet pills and "fat burners"... 95% of them simply don't work. If you want a good energy supplement that may increase your metabolism and speed weight loss you might want to try green tea extract (especially when taken 30 minutes before workouts).

Well that it's! Now you know what to do in order to lose 15 pounds fast. By using the proven, healthy, quick weight loss tips outlined above you'll be able to lose your ugly belly fat, lose inches from your hips and thighs, tone up your muscles, improve your energy, and basically create a leaner, fitter, sexier body... all within just a few weeks!
