The Body Fat Breakthrough: Tap the Muscle-Building Power of Negative Training and Lose Up to 30 Pounds in 30 days!

The Body Fat Breakthrough: Tap the Muscle-Building Power of Negative Training and Lose Up to 30 Pounds in 30 days!

| March 30, 2014

Anyone who desperately wants to lose 10 to 50 or more pounds but just can’t find the time to exercise three or four times a week will love The Body Fat Breakthrough. It requires just one or two 20-minute resistance-training workouts using negative (or eccentric) training, the little-known weight-lifting technique that shrinks fat cells and triggers fast muscle growth. Legendary fitness researcher Ellington Darden, PhD, put 115 overweight men and women on this workout program and achieved remarkable results, which are illustrated in the book through 20 inspiring before and after photographs. Some test subjects lost 30, 40, or even more than 50 pounds in as many days and transformed their bodies and their health.

Negative training is just one of 10 Fat Bombs demonstrated in the book. Others include:

• A unique meal plan in which the bulk of calories comes from carbohydrates (50% carbs;

25% protein; 25% fat), offering readers an appealing new way to lose weight without sacrifice

• Drinking a gallon of cold water a day to stay full and burn calories through thermogenesis

• Evening after-dinner walks to accelerate body heat, triggering increased fat loss

Dr. Darden’s Breakthrough program sheds pounds fast while building and toning muscle in just 6 weeks.
