Have you been looking for foods that burn fat? Learn about the diet plan for weight loss and how to reduce weight safely.

I knew someone who had a very troubling body image problem. She wondered why even though she drank only 1 cup of Starbucks coffee, ate 1 apple a day AND roller-bladed for 3 hours everyday, she still gained weight.

News Flash! If you starve yourself, your body goes into starvation mode and any food that enters your body, after supplying the energy to keep you alive, the rest is converted to fat to be stored.

    Ted.com Video Alert : What you didn't know about coffee: Asher Yaron at TEDxUbud

    After several trips to Bali, Asher Yaron finally decided to move there and follow his desire to create a local, organic, sustainable business.

    With Balinese coffee farmer friend I Nyoman Wirata, Asher created F.R.E.A.K., that is, "Fresh Roasted Enak (delicious in Indonesian) Arabica from Kintamani," which is involved in all aspects of the coffee business "from the cherry to the cup." Asher also has plans to use pure spring water from Kintamani to further improve the flavor of their coffee and return a percentage of the profits to community projects in the Kintamani region. Asher's upcoming venture: Coffee University.

    Fat Burning Recipes to Die for!


    The 3 Week Diet requires some essential supplements for maximum effectiveness and ultra-fast, significant fat loss.

    The following supplements are required during the 3 Week Diet. They will help your body run effciently, help burn fat at maximum potential and will provide many healthy benefits.

    Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s)

    Your health, good or bad, is driven in large part by the level of inflammation in your body and the amount of lean muscle mass you have. In fact, there are several diseases (including obesity) that are linked to inflammation and the lack of muscle mass.

    When you control the inflammation in your body, you can effectively control the onset of numerous diseases, including type II diabetes, heart disease, depression, arthritis and obesity.

    Muscle mass decreases over time, especially when we are not eating enough protein and not engaging in exercise.

    The less muscle mass we have, the more weight we will gain. Lean muscle mass is crucial to keeping body fat at bay.

    The 3 Week Diet

    A healthy body is one that has low levels of inflammation and higher levels of muscle mass. While many attribute high levels of inflammation and loss of muscle mass to aging, the fact is, we can keep our bodies young through proper nutrition and exercise. We get old from the inside out. So, it is important to keep inflammation down and exercise up.

    Essential fatty acids are exactly that: Essential. EFA’s are mainly polyunsaturated fats. Humans must ingest them because our bodies are unable to create them.

    Once broken down, EFA’s contribute to vital organ function. EFA’s regulate body functions and are essential to cardiac cells. Other functions impacted by EFA’s are heart rate, blood pressure, clotting, fertility and conception and immune system functions.

    You may have heard EFA’s referred to as Omega-3’s or linolenic acid and Omega-6’s linoleic acid.

    The two major forms of omega-3 fats used by the body are (EPA) eicosapentaenoic acid and (DHA) docosahexaenoic acid.

    You may be wondering, how will this help my diet? Well, the key to this fatty acid is that during the metabolism of these acids, energy is generated in the cells. During your diet, your energy sources from protein and essential fatty acids will help your metabolism to continue running and burning those extra carbohydrates (or stored fat) for fuel.

    Fish oil also has other benefits, such as:

    • Reduces inflammation
    • Eliminates joint pain
    • Improves vision
    • Increases mental focus
    • Treats ulcers, Chron’s Disease, and colitis
    • Provides healthier gums
    • Gives you smoother skin, hair and nails
    • Decreases triglyceride levels
    • Increases daily calorie burn

    Whey Protein

    Whey protein is considered a “complete protein” in that it has all of the amino acids you need to sustain life. In the past, whey protein shakes were awful and gritty. Science has come a long way, however, in making these shakes a lot more tolerable.

    Do they taste like your favorite milkshake topped with whipped cream and a cherry? Hardly...but depending on the brand and the flavor, there are some really good choices out there that are actually pretty good. And, by adding some sugar-free flavored syrups (like they use in coffee shops), you can incorporate some good variety and really make some very tasty shakes.

    When choosing a Whey Protein to use in this diet, be sure to choose a brand that allows you to keep carbohydrates as low as possible (no more than 2 grams per scoop).

    Additionally, during this diet, you will want to keep fat as low as possible as well (no more than 2 grams per scoop). This will ensure the best possible conditions for your weight loss goals.

    Depending on your weight, you may need more than one scoop. If you were to take two scoops, just be sure that you are not exceeding 4 grams of carbohydrates. 4 grams of carbohydrates will not have much of an impact on your blood sugar.

    As you will see, whey protein will make up a large component of the 3-Week Diet. For some, purchasing whey protein powder to make up many of their meals for the over the next 21 days may seem expensive, but when you consider that you can get all your meals for the day for about $10, this is actually pretty cheap. Plus, you’ll find that a lot of time is freed up that is normally spent on cooking and eating meals, which gives you more time to take a walk or engage in other exercise.

    The 3 Week Diet


    Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) has excited many researchers over the past few years. The fact is, numerous studies have shown CLA to provide a host of benefits including combating diabetes, building lean muscle mass, thwarting cancer, keeping fat cells from becoming larger and dramatically reducing body fat.

    CLA helps to move the fat you eat into your muscle cells instead of being stored as body fat. It then activates certain enzymes in your body to force your muscles to burn that fat—especially during exercise.

    As mentioned, CLA has also been shown to prevent fat cells from getting fatter, so even when you’ve finished the 3-Week Diet, CLA can help keep the fat from ever coming back.

    When combined with the 3 Week Diet, CLA can nearly double your fat loss when taken in the range of 6-8 grams per day.


    As you may recall, Leucine is an essential amino acid that is found in dietary protein. While researchers have known about Leucine for decades, only recently have they determined the amazing benefits that Leucine has on the body.

    Leucine is an extremely valuable BCAA (branched chain amino acid) due to its ability to switch on the body’s muscle building process as well as to preserve lean muscle mass when dieting. Leucine has been proven to be the most important amino acid to muscle building.

    Researchers at the University of Illinois conducted studies that examined weight loss diets containing 10 grams of leucine per day with 125 grams total of protein per day with a minimum of 2.5 grams of leucine at each meal. In two separate studies, the groups consuming high leucine diets had greater weight loss, greater fat loss and better preservation of lean body mass.

    Understand that whey protein is a complete protein which is a great source of Leucine. To ensure that we are getting enough Leucine, however, we will add additional Leucine to our diet every day.


    Greens+ is full of vitamins and minerals and it is loaded with free radical absorbing antioxidants. It contains electrolytes (magnesium, potassium, sodium) that are extremely important on a low-carb diet.

    Greens+ is also packed with base producing compounds that neutralize dietary acids and it is rich with healthy bacteria that will help to detoxify the body as we rapidly release toxins from the fat cells as they are used up for energy.

    Greens+ is a brand name that gets rave reviews. You can definitely find something similar, but this product does get my personal recommendation.

    My Journey from US size 0 to 8 & Back
    (I sacrificed my body to science just for you, my dear blog readers)

    After my 3rd kid, I was a size 6-8 (depending on my dinner). I really tried everything:

    • Exercise - 10-12 km jogs everyday
    • Eating Less - Isn't losing weight just 'Eating less & Moving more'?
    • Duramine Diet pills - I lost my appetite, became an insomniac but was totally pepped up with energy. All would have been well except you can't take this long term coz' it's bad for your internal organs & I was cranky as hell! (What do you expect with 3 -4 hours of sleep every night, I was getting delusional...)
    • Tummy patches from Korea - You can't use this everyday coz' in the Singapore heat, it gets itchy. The verdict is still out on this, I think I just got an extremely itchy & sweaty stomach, with a slight loss in belly fat.
    • Marie France Bodyline Slimming Treatments - I tried a cocktail of all their treatments (1 each at a promotional price). I did lose quite a bit of my weight gain from my pregnancies and most of my stomach fat (my problem area), but the pounds rushed right back after I stopped the program (Who can spend thousands of $$$ to maintain my post-treatment weight? Darn, aren't I supposed to be able to keep the weight off on a semi-permanent basis?).
    • Body wraps & 'Lipolysis' - OK, be careful of this. You can suffer so much water loss through sweat and dehydration that you actually feel dizzy & unwell. The inch loss and weight loss is imaginary as you will definitely need to drink water & Boom! It's baaaaccccck...
    • Indonesian Jamu massages - This was my first treatment & the massage was quite painful (1 hour's worth of 'No pain, no gain') & there appeared to be bruises on my tummy. The massage was supposed to 'soften' the hard crystallized fat in your belly!
    • Zaggora Hotpants - I loved these hotpants for running, you sweat like a pig under the wetsuit material of the hotpants and feel like you have accomplished a whole lot. I did get my amazing trim thighs!
    • 3 Week Diet - I am working on getting my tummy as flat as possible and maybe getting that line down the middle of your stomach if you are really in great shape for a woman. I am on a reasonable high protein-low carb diet plan (No Atkins diet for me!). By reasonable, I mean I eat like a normal person, no starvation required. In fact, I try to eat small meals 4 hourly, supplemented with Fish oil, Whey protein, CLA, Leucine, Greens+ Superfoods, Fat burners and plenty of water to clear the toxins from my body. (Work in progress - I will report back to you of the results)

    My After weight loss picture was taken at the beginning of this year and I am 45 years old (2015). I am a US size 2-4 now. I don't think I will ever be a size 0 again in this lifetime & be able to slip on a dress without even unzipping it (like in the good ole days... never mind, there is always my next life.)

    In case you think I have skinny Chinese genes, nope, my grandfather had pants 3 normal-sized guys could get into. My mother used to horrify me with stories of how my aunt's 20 inch waist before marriage became 20 inch thighs after her 4 kids. I was determined not to walk down that scary path of permanently being called 'Auntie' by all and sundry.
