Three Ways to Rid Yourself of Belly Fat Faster

640-X-400-belly-fat-150x150If you’ve ever used an Isagenix Cleansing and Fat Burning system, then you’re already aware that it’s a clinically supported, effective solution for shedding unwanted belly fat. Now research has uncovered a few extra things you can do that when combined together can accelerate belly fat loss.

If you want to speed up belly fat loss, you should:

  • Caffeinate (with e+, preferably).
  • Move faster (with HIIT; more on that below).
  • Go high protein (with IsaPro whey protein, preferably).

As a reminder, belly fat is a danger to your health—particularly the kind that’s visceral, lying deep in the body’s midsection. It’s associated with insulin resistance, inflammation, and a greater risk of chronic health problems. When it comes to body fat, it’s just the worst of the worst.

In most cases, performing Cleanse Days and Shake Days can help you get rid of belly fat, according to clinical research on Isagenix products. But the fact is that we all have a certain degree of stubborn belly fat. And it’s generally the last few pounds that can be the most challenging—not to mention frustrating—to leave behind.


There’s no need to become disenchanted when new studies find that you can look to caffeine to re-energize your goals. According to the Journal of Applied Physiology, caffeine can help not only cheer you up about exercise, but also increase the amount of food calories burned during and after exercise (1).

The authors of the new research wrote that caffeine led to exercise “being perceived as less difficult and more enjoyable” and that the combination created a “greater acute energy deficit” that cumulatively could lead to a pound or more of weight loss after only a few months.

Caffeine can come in many forms. Most people turn to the traditional coffee or tea for a caffeine fix, which will work surely enough as long as you don’t pile in the sugar and creamers. For use just before exercise, Isagenix e+ also will provide an 80-milligram dose of naturally-sourced caffeine needed for a pleasing workout.

Move Fast

Endless hours in the gym aren’t needed either. In fact, according to new studies, a short few minutes a few times a week of high-intensity interval training, or HIIT, should be enough to help you burn off that last belly fat bit.

As reported in the Journal of Obesity, HIIT is more effective than traditional aerobic exercise for belly fat reduction (2). According to the researchers, the reasons may have to do with increased fat metabolism during and after exercise, better balance of blood sugar, better sensitizing of the body’s insulin response, and even decreased appetite post-exercise.

How to shrink your waist with HIIT? It involves a mix of speed and power in intervals lasting from 30 seconds to several minutes, followed by rest periods lasting for about one to five minutes. So you might try sprinting as fast as possible for 30 seconds followed by walking for five minutes, then sprinting again, four to five times a session.

What you’re doing, in short, is getting the biggest belly-fat-busting bang for your exercise buck. It should be enough to be metabolically demanding for hormone modulating, cardiovascular conditioning, and better fat burning (2). But we advise you to work with your personal doctor to find out what level of HIIT is most appropriate for you.

Go High Protein

Following your HIIT workout (and even when taken just before bed), extra protein promotes belly fat loss. Plus, it helps boost muscle growth, increase metabolism, satisfy appetite, and helps balance insulin levels (3). As much as we like to say it, it’s worth repeating: Protein indeed is king.

But don’t overdo it. Protein in excess, especially when presented with extra calories from fat like in a big steak, can also just end up as extra belly fat. Also, not all protein (ahem, not soy) has the right combination of branched-chain amino acids to truly accelerate fat loss. Whey protein is a safe bet for the job for burning fat in the fewest calories; and IsaPro supplemental undenatured whey protein is choice for quality.

Putting it All Together for Flat Abs

Remember, the studies show that the combination of intermittent fasting on Cleanse Days and calorie restriction on Shake Days is truly key to optimal belly fat loss. But flat bellies and six-pack abs also can take work through exercise. By adding on caffeine from e+, combined with HIIT, and followed by whey protein, you’ll only improve upon the value of your Isagenix lifestyle.

It could also be just the bump you need to bust that belly fat for the better.

Social Media is NOT a sales tool…

SM IconsHow many parties have you been to where someone tried talking you into a fantastic opportunity selling soap or long distance service or…? Instead of relaxing and enjoying the fun like everyone else, they just had to try selling in an inappropriate situation.

You don’t want to be that jerk when you are at the party on your favorite social media.

Let’s stop and look at what people really do with social media. They are looking for laughs and fun conversation with their friends… and social media is great for sharing fun and networking, but sales pitches are a total turn off.

Can social media be an effective marketing tool?

Maybe… if you use it right.

Used intelligently, social media can be very effective as part of your overall marketing plan. It is a truism that customers buy from people they know, like, and trust. Social media is one of the best ways to create these feelings over a period of time.

Using social media you can:

  • Reach a larger audience of potential customers
  • Build you brand with consistent short messages
  • Engage your readers
  • Connect with other influential people in your market
  • Bring more people to your events
  • Provide better customer service faster

Doing that will earn customer loyalty and even generate a few direct sales; and those loyal customers will buy from you because they know who you are, like what you do, and trust what you tell them.

So how do you do that?

It all starts with a plan… and that’s the topic of another post.

Stay tuned.

B2B marketing is all about leads…

B2B LeadGen Why?

No leads, no sales.

No sales, no business.

Lead generation is the lifeblood of every B2B business. As a B2B Marketer, I’m sure you agree. Lead generation is your top priority and converting them your greatest challenge.

The trending hot topic for lead generation is content marketing. Last year, businesses spent more than $16 billion on online content marketing. Is that because it works, or because the latest Google slap more or less mandated it and you have to be cool… like everyone else?

Content marketing is not new. Technology companies have been using it for years… even before the Internet. They offer free whitepapers or free special reports to encourage prospects to say, “Hey that sounds interesting. I need to read that.”

How hard is it for your sales team to call them and simply ask if they received their report? That beats the dickens out of cold calling!

And it is easy to use the conversation to start qualifying the lead.

You may call it “old school”, but it still works.

Obviously hosting good content is going to help your search engine ratings and might increase traffic to your site, but you still have to convert that traffic to leads. Content can do that IF it persuades the visitor to take the next step.

Too often, web content is a nice article. It might inform… maybe even entertain, but does it tell the highlights of your story and then ask the readers if they want to hear the rest of the story?

If it does, readers raise their hands and ask for more… they give you their name and email address and click the link. In their mind they are saying, “YES! Tell me more!”

That is content marketing.

Stay tuned.

My focus is Effective Marketing that works.

Cool new ideas are great… if they work! But the tried and true still bring in leads… and that’s what it is all about.
