    Fat Burning Recipes to Die for!

    Is your food making you FAT or burn MORE fat?
    By Karine Losier & Dave Ruel

    1. Why most "healthy" cookbooks use ingredients that actually make you fat.

    2. How to ensure your meals are optimized for fat loss!

    3. What to do so your meal plan doesn't hit a fat loss plateau.

    If you've tried fat loss diets before and have used a variety of weight loss cookbooks to try to lose body fat, then you very likely know by now that those fat loss diets and the "healthy" cookbooks that go with them don't work.

    What is it about them that makes successful weight loss so difficult to achieve?

    Well for starters, most "healthy" cookbooks are NOT designed with high Metabolic Thermo Charge ingredients. They are not using the metabolic powers that certain foods have to make your body burn more body fat. Instead, they use ingredients with very low thermogenic effect.

    Why does this matter? Because the Metabolic Thermo Charge of food stands for how many calories your body will burn just by breaking down the nutrients each time you consume a certain food.

    Most people have absolutely no idea of the power some of these foods have over the fat burning processes that go on inside the body, and so they never really think twice about them. BIG MISTAKE.

    For example, simply consuming high-quality protein with most meals will naturally burn off more calories and move you closer to your target weight. Lean protein has a very high "Metabolic Thermo Charge". Spices also have a strong thermogenic effect on your body. Combining certain foods together, such as chicken and turmeric, with help you burn more fat after you eat it.

    Interesting, right?

    But that's not all. Another thing to consider is whether or not your so-called “healthy” cookbook has a real structure. Too often, cookbooks are just a bunch of recipes thrown together at random – you pick and choose what you feel like eating at that point in the day. That is NOT going to make you burn fat faster!

    Having a structure is mandatory if you want to rid yourself of stubborn fat. That's why we developed a quick and easy "Metabolic Nutri-Profile" system for all our recipes, so you can see precisely what nutrients you're taking in, which ensures that each meal makes the most of your metabolic rate.

    Don't make the mistake of venturing into the food jungle without your compass!

    So we’ve talked about the food and the structure of your eating plan. Sounds like we’ve got it covered, right? NO!

    Ever followed a diet to a “T” and all of a sudden noticed that you stopped losing fat?

    This is called the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon. It occurs at that point in your diet when your body knows precisely what it's getting in terms of food and has fully adapted to it. When it reaches this state, your metabolism slows down and fat loss screeches to a halt.

    In order to avoid the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon, you have to vary your nutrient intake regularly, shocking your body as time goes on. This keeps it guessing and ensures your metabolism stays on high at all times. Having a wide range of fat loss recipes at your fingertips makes avoiding this frustrating condition a breeze!

    Now you know the REAL score when it comes to fat loss and dieting! Be sure to watch out for these three sneaky saboteurs next time you make the decision to lose fat!

    In Metabolic Cooking, you are provided with a huge collection of awesome fat torching recipes that will:

    1. Help you burn fat faster with the help of specific Metabolic Thermo Charged ingredients

    2. Efficiently structure your meal plan with their simple and effective "Metabolic Nutri-Profile"

    3. Fight the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon.

    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.
