Are You Ready to Lose Those “Love Handles”?
Turn Back Your Biological Clock and Avoid the “Beer Belly”!
How much should I expect to lose in one round?
Men typically lose between 30 and 50 pounds during the 42-day diet program.
Is rapid weight loss safe?
The Skinny Me! Man Plan is safe and effective. The daily utilization of hCG forces the body to FLOOD stored fat into the bloodstream. The body processes this fat by converting it into nutrients, which are absorbed and used as energy.
Will I experience muscle atrophy?
While on the Skinny Me! Man Plan, you will not experience muscle deterioration. Research has proven that this is possible because the body floods excess fat reserves. Since this is a hormonal therapy-based program, and not a calorie-based diet, the body releases the excess fat reserves into the bloodstream instead of burning it. As a result, muscle mass does not decline.
Where do men typically lose inches first?
Theoretically, hCG releases excess, internal fat stores or visceral fat. Since visceral fat surrounds organs in the abdomen, this is the location in which you will notice the greatest loss in inches. It is common for patients to shed a pound and an inch of body fat simultaneously, while others lose inches faster than weight.
Why should I worry about abdominal fat?
The notches on your belt tell the tale: If your waistline has gained girth, you’ve got more than friendly padding. You’ve got too much belly fat, and that’s a serious health issue.
Doctors have a catchy term for that too-familiar round belly — the “apple” shape. If your fat has settled on the buttocks and thighs, you’re a “pear” shape. Don’t get sidetracked with the cutesy names, however. Belly fat (visceral fat) is serious business.
Even skinny people can have unhealthy “hidden” belly fat. Research shows that fat may be folded deep inside the belly around the stomach organs, visible only by CT or MRI imaging. This fat puts people at the same health risks as someone with more obvious big girth.
How Does Belly Fat Harm You?
Belly fat doesn’t just lay idle at your beltline. Researchers describe it as an active “organ” in your body — one that churns out hormones and inflammatory substances.
Abdominal fat is thought to break down easily into fatty acids, which flow directly into the liver and into muscle.
When these excess fatty acids drain into the liver, they trigger a chain reaction of changes — increasing the production of LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol and triglycerides. During this time insulin can also become less effective in controlling blood sugar, so insulin resistance sets in.
Blood sugars start to get out of balance. Fats and clots get into the bloodstream, and that sets the stage for diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer. Also, abdominal fat triggers a change in angiotensin, a hormone that controls blood vessel constriction — increasing the risk hypertension and stroke and are a greater risk of health problems.
