Neutralize Stress Fat Storage Hormones

High stress not only interferes with body fat loss, but also supports fat storage around the belly for men and lower body for women. We have a tremendous amount of experience helping clients lose body fat while improving energy levels even when facing stressful conditions.*

Elevated insulin levels triggered by high stress including cortisol spikes will make body fat loss nearly impossible even if the diet and training execution are well above average. Optimizing insulin sensitivity enables the body to use insulin more efficiently creating a situation where there are lower levels of this potent fat storing hormone.*

Successful fat burning strategies extensively used by our clients:

KISS fast for 12-15 hours following dinner until lunch.*

Train more frequently with short interval and weight training sessions.*

Fat Reduce FBO5 to bust through hormonal barriers to fat loss*

Target carbohydrate intake strategically with macronutrient cycling*

Increase dietary fat intake from organic choices*

Alpha Omega M3 daily to improve the metabolic response to meals.*

Neutralize cortisol levels with pre/post workout nutrition tactics*


Fat Reduce FBO5

Fat Reduce FBO5 Day and Night Time formulas are scientifically engineered to bust through the most significant hormonal and metabolic barriers to fat loss.*

Unlock fat burning potential by optimizing insulin sensitivity

Dr. Serrano and Scott My wife and I are 15 pounds of stubborn fat from having great six packs by Memorial Day. We have been in great shape before, but lately progress has been slow since our personal and work stress levels have gone up. We both have had trouble falling asleep and wake up feeling more tired than usual. Cravings have been much higher lately and we have given into them a few times which is totally out of character for us. Thanks for reviewing our nutrition plans that we sent by email.

Eating Clean and Reducing Calories is Not Enough To Earn a 6 Pack

We reviewed your nutrition journals and you guys have done a great job eliminating junk food, but your insulin sensitivity is very poor for a number of reasons including consuming the wrong types and amounts of carbohydrate, non-organic saturated fats, items that damage fat cell function, too much dairy intake, alcohol consumption, lack of essential fats, poor sleep and more.

Stress contributes to overtraining and low energy

Throw in stress (further elevated by excessive steady sate cardio and overtraining) into the equation and insulin levels will become even worse while activating fat storage receptors which are plentiful in stubborn fat areas.*

Low Morning Energy Problem Starts with Your Habits the Night Before.
Poor sleep quality will cause you to wake up tired with very low blood sugar. As a result the body will crave carbohydrate to boost energy temporarily, but this also stimulates fat storage for several hours. Fat Reduce FBO5 Night Time taken 1 to 2 hours before bed will help you transition to into a deep level of sleep by lowering stress levels.*

Fat Reduce FBO5

Scientifically engineered fat burning with Fat Reduce FBO5 Day and Night time formulas.*

“Hormones govern fat loss and I designed the Fat Reduce FOB5 Day and Night time formulas to bust through the most significant barriers to fat loss including high stress based on years of hormonal blood work evaluations. Fat Reduce FBO5 Day Time and Night Time provide the necessary ingredients at the right times to optimize fat burning and improve daily energy through multiple pathways.”* Eric Serrano MD.

Improve sleep quality

You will wake up feeling great and by virtue of improved sleep quality your insulin sensitivity will also improve. The Fat Reduce FBO5 Day time formula is taken twice daily and can improve energy as well as mental focus without over stimulating your system.

Dr. Serrano developed Fat Reduce FBO5 to solve the most significant barriers to stubborn fat loss including hormonal challenges, sluggish metabolism and more. Clients report waking up feeling more well rested which can be attributed to improved sleep quality which is linked to optimal body composition*

Physique breakfast of champions

The KISS fat loss nutrition system uses fasting for 12 to 15 hours starting after dinner until lunch time the following day as a powerful fat burning tool that attributes a large part of its success to improving insulin sensitivity. Start the day with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis powder to protect hard earned muscle, improve energy, control hunger and to increase the utilization of stored fat as fuel through several pathways.*

Drinking the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis is quick and easy while tasting great. The scientifically engineered amino acid ratios signal the brain that a huge amount of food has been consumed. As a result metabolic rate jumps dramatically leaving nothing to burn except that stored fat on your abs since the 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis have no caloric burden.*

Two per day training sessions

Increased training frequency is a powerful tool for improving insulin sensitivity. When schedules allow on weekends for example we suggest clients execute two exercise sessions 4 to 6 hours apart. This could be weight training at 10 am and interval sprints at 4 pm on the same day. In certain cases we may use two interval sessions or two weight training sessions on the same day depending on the client needs and goals. The objective is not to drastically increase the training volume. Both sessions will be kept between 30 and 40 minutes and this can only be done a couple days per week in most cases. *

We understand that time to exercise comes at a premium so you can use creative ideas to train. For example performing an explosive medicine ball throw workout which includes interval sprints. This training session supports awesome six pack development and body fat loss in the backyard with several family members at one time.*

Customized macronutrient cycling solutions

Poor sleep and elevated stress levels being in place for a month or longer means that your insulin sensitivity is not going to be optimized overnight. This status will make you much more sensitivity to carbohydrate and certain saturated fats, however you cannot resort to a generic low carb diet for longer than 2 weeks before it gets stale.*

Poor insulin sensitivity causes bad reactions to high carb intake

We make use of macronutrient cycling with dietary fat and carbohydrate at the right times to boost metabolism, anabolic hormones and fat burning enzymes. While implementing these concepts are complex from a design stand point, we make it very easy to execute by including dietary fat and carb loading days strategically matched with tough training sessions to fuel anabolism and raw materials needs. You must take Alpha Omega M3 with all meals to optimize insulin sensitivity and drive raw materials into hungry muscles instead of fat cells.*
