Company: The Truth About Six Pack Abs
Author: Mike Geary, Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) and Certified Personal Trainer (CPT)
If you’re looking for an honest review of The Truth About Six Pack Abs – you’re finally on the right page. I originally picked up a copy because it was getting sunny and warm in my area, and I couldn’t cover up my belly with sweatshirts any longer. The idea of spending another summer feeling ugly and uncomfortably self-conscious was depressing – so I decided it was time to try and get my body under control once more.
I ended up writing this review explaining how this amazing fat loss ebook works and who it’ll work for after my friends started to notice the changes I was going through on a daily basis. I started getting more comments about how great I was looking and people began to ask me what I was doing to see such GREAT RESULTS. I got tired of explaining everything over and over again – and decided to simply include it all in this review!
So What’s The Truth About Abs All About?
When I picked up my copy of this amazing program, it came with:
- - The complete 142-page Abs manual.
- - A personal metabolic calculator guide.
- - A free subscription to Mike Geary’s Lean Body Fitness Secrets, a newsletter he sends out to over 700,000 people.
- - Free bonus DVD “The 5 Keys To Guaranteed Fat Loss” by Kim Lyons, the trainer from Seasons 3 and 4 of The Biggest Loser
- - comes with a Fast Track Meal Planner guide.
- - 4 Audio lectures explaining how to avoid cravings, how to stay motivated and unique (and very effective) ways to stay on track with your plan.
- - The 8-Week Dumbbell-Bodyweight Fusion Workout program, a great way to work out from home and get the same fat loss results (if a gym’s not available nearby)
Everything was available as a digital download – so there were no packages to wait for, I was able to dig right in.
It Promised No More Calorie Counting Ever Again!
As soon as I began to read through the manual – I understood that Mike Geary doesn’t BELIEVE in diets. He says they haven’t worked in decades, which is why anyone who actually manages to starve some weight off ends up putting it back on by the end of the month.
The detailed chapters go on to explain proper meal frequency, enjoying cheat meals (and how to keep from going overboard), stabilizing your insulin, and how to keep your metabolism high throughout the whole day to burn the most fat.
What’s unique about this fat loss guidebook is that Mike Geary warns you against many foods and their fake “nutritional values”. And I’m not talking about frozen pizzas either. If you thought soy was healthy (I did, at first) or even the so-called “whole wheat breads” – you’re in for a big surprise!
Instead, the nutrition plan consists of eating a large variety of whole foods that are just as tasty and require the same cooking skills that it takes to use a microwave. Mike Geary even goes into detail about powerful whole foods that actually melt the fat off as you eat them!
Mike Geary put together a huge nutrition section list with a ton of whole/unprocessed foods so you can alter your daily diet without your body ever really realizing it. His guarantee is that you don’t even have to count calories as long as you eat what’s on the list – something I found refreshing after a DECADE of diets that always told me to track every calorie I put in my mouth.
Unless You’re A Hamster – Hours And Hours Of Cardio Won’t Get
Yes, believe it or not, all of those boring hours of repetitive cardio sessions are not the best way to lose body fat and reveal your abs.
Instead, the guide concentrates on high intensity weight lifting/full body workouts – which actually burn MORE fat in the long run. I didn’t know that while metabolism goes up for a few hours after cardio, it actually goes up for 1-2 DAYS after a solid 45 minute weight lifting workout.
And that’s exactly how long the workouts are – you only have to do 3 45-minute sessions a week to start seeing real results that will show up on the scale.
Toning up your muscles through weight training is what really gives you that “above and beyond” look – as people who do just cardio tend to become “skinny fat”, where they lose lots of their muscle due to excessive cardio and the remaining fat hangs where the muscle should be, making the person look fat anyway.
The Abs guide includes a variety of full exercise plans that you can easily customize if you have any problems by swapping different exercises out for the same effects. Mike even includes an 8-week bodyweight/free weights fat burning workout that you can do from home if you don’t have easy access to a gym.
Honestly, if you can’t commit yourself to just 2 hours of exercise per week (and no cardio unless you enjoy it) – chances are you’re nowhere close to “being committed” to shedding your belly, and only a stomach staple can help in that case.
But if you’re looking for a proven way to finally rip through the fat and see the 6-pack abs that you’ve been working your tail off to get I highly recommend checking out This Presentation - watch Mike’s presentation here to understand why it’s easier than ever before!
5 Things I Liked Most About Mike Geary’s guide
#1 – No Gimmicks
Forget about every ab roller, zoner and contraption you’ve ever tried before. Getting your abs to stick out is just a matter of the right nutrition and regular training. The Truth About Abs is common sense and 15 years of scientific research/experience put together – an easy formula that anyone can follow.
#2 – No Crazy Diets
In fact – there’s no diets at all! You can’t imagine (yet) what it feels like not to have sugar cravings or hunger pains anymore. The body becomes a full-on fat burning machine when you feed it properly – and just by eating whole/unprocessed foods on the list, you’ll see fat melting off your sides before you even start exercising!
#3 – No Cardio
Cardio is not the best way to lose fat – it’s boring, you break down muscle doing it, and it slows down your overall metabolism! Replacing boring and repetitive cardio with fun, high-intensity workouts is the ONLY DIFFERENCE between people who quit after 2 weeks, and those who see terrific abs after 8 weeks. When you don’t dread the cardio sessions anymore, you start looking forward to the workouts. When you start looking forward to your next workout – it’s very easy to stay on track!
#4 – 45-Minutes, 3 Days A Week = Results
I used to think people with great bodies were either born with god-like genetics or spent 4 hours a day in the gym. But it doesn’t have to be that way anymore – anyone who TRULY wants to lose fat can find 3 hours in a week to exercise, which is all that Mike asks for. These special workouts will trigger hormonal fat burning responses within the body, causing you to burn fat for an entire day or two after you finish each workout!
#5 – It’s Proven To Work, Period.
Mike Geary’s guidebook has worked for over 270,000 people across over 130 different countries. It finally helped me break out of my habits after MORE THAN 10 YEARS of trying different diets, pills and exercises to lose weight. No matter what anyone says – if that many people have seen success with this guide, Mike Geary must be on to something!
The Truth About Abs program is perfect for you if you:
- hate diets.
- hate calorie counting.
- hate cardio.
None of these are required to get the perfect, flat abs you dream of. That being said – you will need to commit yourself. Having a variety of whole foods to replace the current trash you’re eating means that you can’t snarf down your nightly large pizza anymore. Also having no cardio sessions means you have to work hard during your weight training sessions to make them count.
Combine eating from the huge whole foods list you’re provided with (don’t eat the same stuff – there’s a variety so that you don’t get bored and go back to eating junk), and the 3 weekly workout sessions – I swear to you that you’ll see the results within a few weeks, and FEEL them in the very first week you start. It took me 12 weeks to drop 28 pounds (I saw my first “mirror confirmed” results by the end of the 2nd week) – so this is not a magical fat loss pill. If you can just set some definite goals, you’ll see that it becomes easier and easier to follow them as the weeks go by when you are actually getting results.
If you want to lose weight – get started TODAY so that you can start seeing and feeling the results tomorrow. If you’re waiting for a better time, realize that’s just procrastination, and you will never get anywhere if you let it stop you.
As my last bit of motivation, the only person that can get you those rock hard abs is you. Once you get started and experience the results for yourself, the feeling is pretty incredible, also the complements are nice! If I can do it, I know you can too.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my experiences and review on this amazing guidebook,
