Don’t Be Fooled By This Fat Burning Mirage

By Rob Poulos...

As with a good majority of the things we do in life, we rely
heavily on our vision or eyesight as the determining factor in
whether or not we believe something.  And this is unfortunately
the case in trying to burn fat as well.  What’s the old cliché?

A picture is worth a thousand words, right?  Well, when we lock
our eyes onto that photo of that buff guy or buxom bombshell on
the cover of the latest fitness or w.eight loss product,
something happens.  We get excited.  We may even get very
excited!

Unfortunately, this is something that many in the fitness
industry are preying on. They know this and use it to their huge
advantage.  The process is simple: put a great looking and in
-shape guy or girl on a product and it will sell.  They don’t
even have to tell you you’ll look like that person – they
already know your subconscious will assume it will happen.

When you’re desperate to burn fat, this is an easy game for the
fitness industry to play.  It really is like seeing a mirage in
the dessert.  You want it so badly you’ll make yourself believe.

And of course a few weeks later when the miracle doesn’t happen,
you may start to lose hope and realize that it’s going to be
tough to keep up with the unrealistic and overly strict
guidelines.

You’ve got a life, right?  Sure, you want to burn fat, but
you’ve got a job, maybe a family, and other interests in life.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a great fat burning workout, but I
know you don’t want to spend every waking hour for the rest of
your life working out!

All of this happened to me several times over as a y.oung man.
I wasn’t happy with my weight, wanted to burn fat, and was in
search of the most efficient way to get lean, strong, and
healthy, but while not spending too much time in the gym, or
having to follow crazy diet plans for long periods of time.

After more than a decade of experimenting on myself, friends,
relatives, and perfect strangers, I assembled some of the
secrets that I found to work best at burning fat and in the
shortest amount of time, on myself and the others that I worked
with.

Now, what led me to do this was an enormous amount of
frustration that I know thousands of others are going through
right now.  Why?  To answer that, I want you to understand the
psychological aspects of what we are up against in the world of
health and fitness.

What do you call doing the same thing over and over and
expecting a different result?  OK, I’ll answer this
one…Insanity!  In some ways, the fitness industry is making
you insane in your quest to burn fat and get a lean, strong, and
healthy body.  Their promises are too good to be true and often
they can’t typically deliver on them.   They are over-promising
and under-delivering in far too many cases.

It’s a big psychological game that the fitness industry is
playing with us, and it dates back to our childhood.  When we
were kids, we were all taught in school that we could do
anything we wanted to do when we grew up.  Your parents might
have even told you that you can achieve anything you want if you
believe in it strongly enough.  I know mine did.

While this can provide great inspiration in life’s pursuits, it
can also be used against you by others, and without you knowing.
You are largely a product of your genetic makeup.  Just as Mini
-Me from the Austin Powers movies could never play in the NBA, a
guy like Woody Allen could never w.in a heavyweight bodybuilding
competition.

The reality is that these two guys can burn fat and get in the
best shape of their life, but our genes are responsible for much
of what we end up looking like when in that best shape.  But
this isn’t what the fitness industry will typically tell you –
they want you thinking that anyone can look like a genetic freak
of nature if you just follow their programs, that is.

Please know that I am not saying you are doomed by your genes as
everybody can make amazing improvements in their physiques with
proper exercise and nutrition habits.  It’s when we start
comparing ourselves to the guys or gals in the magazines that we
get into trouble, and get lost in that vicious cycle of hype and
sensationalism all too prevalent in fitness and fat burning
today.

As I mentioned before, you’ve got a life.  You’re a busy person.
We all are.  We live in a fast-paced society, the information
age, where we have so many tasks to complete and so little time
to complete them.  I don’t know about you, but I find myself
trying to cram everything I do into those few hours between
waking up and going to sleep.  It’s not easy.

Then comes along the fitness gurus telling you that to burn fat
and get in great shape you’ve got to workout everyday or close
to it.  You’ve got to do aerobics or cardiovascular exercise to
burn fat, several times a week.  You’ve got to weight train
several other days each week, so that you are literally working
out 5-6 days each week, every week.  If you want it, you’ve got
to do it, they say.

I’m here to tell you that nothing could be further from the
truth! Many of these programs will also tell you that you’ve got
to follow some crazy diet to burn fat.  This might include
cutting all or most of your carbs, ingesting loads of
supplements or other magic fat loss potions.

On top of that, when their programs don’t deliver, they’ll tell
you that everybody is different and that you’ve got to find what
works right for you.  Wait a minute…weren’t they just telling
you that their program promises the body on the cover?

What they are doing is keeping you in that fitness insanity that
I mentioned earlier.  They keep you doing the same thing (trying
then next h.ot product or workout and diet regimen) and
promising
the same great fat burning results.  If it doesn’t work, they
recommend the next great thing.  And too many people go on to
that next miracle product or promise and the fitness industry
uses this to their advantage!

Unfortunately the fitness industry, in many ways, has become a
cycle of hype and sensationalism.  Sure, there are some good
-hearted trainers and professionals out there, but even some of
them are being controlled by the fitness center owners, magazine
publishers, and supplement companies.  That’s where the money
is!  Even if they are trying to help you, they can become
unwitting victims to the machine.

They advertise their products, programs, and diets by using the
cream of the crop in the genetic gene pool.  Hey, if it worked
for that guy or gal with the a.mazing physique, it will work for
me.  I fell for it, too, many times, until I did some serious
research and experimentation as I mentioned before.  Then one
day I finally woke up and discovered for myself the secrets that
few people are aware of.  Secrets that will never dominate the
fitness industry’s general recommendations because they are
unpopular with the people that control the industry.  Why?

Because these principles won’t sell loads of crazy exercise
gimmicks, gadgets, or magic potions.  My Fat Burning Furnace
students are schooled in the proper application of brief,
progressive, and intense resistance training, how to eat a diet
full of nutrient rich foods, and the other important aspects of
living the fat burning lifestyle.

But our subconscious mind is powerful, and you have to watch
out. Even today, I can get sucked in to a compelling late night
TV ad, even though I know better.  So you’ve got to stay on
guard.  If people would pay more attention to proven principles
like those I teach my students, and spend less time with the
latest butt buster or fat stripper on the market, we’d all be
healthier, leaner, stronger, and happier for it.  And we’d also
be burning a heck of a lot more fat in the process.
