A little while ago I stumbled upon a leverage point that could boost your weight loss efforts. I experimented on it myself and though the results weren’t particularly spectacular, I did see a definite improvement. I’ll point you to the link to that post in a bit, but first I figure I should tell you about the five second trick I’ve been using over the last few weeks.


I haven’t taken any measurements, so I can’t vouch for it’s effectiveness in losing belly fat, but I can definitely vouch for it improving my clarity and focus and helping me start my day sharp. I get back to it in a bit …



Anyway, the link was talking about was In it I spoke about borrowing from the “theory of constraints” and applying the concept to weight loss. While everyone is focusing on reducing calorie intake or increasing exercise you could boost your fat burning capability by something as simple as improving the efficiency of your organs, particularly your liver.



It is a well known fact that the liver becomes clogged over time resulting in a very sluggish metabolism meaning your body doesn’t burn fat efficiently due to interference from the various toxins is has to deal with before it can even get a chance to get round to the fat. This means that not only do you not burn fat already accumulated, but you actually accumulate even more!



The truth of the matter is that your body has been accumulating and storing toxins in your fat cells and nervous system for years! Mike Geary recently hit me up with some statistics that paint a really bleak picture when it comes toxins in our foods.



For instance, the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) conducted a program called the National
Human Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS). In 1982 and
again in 1987 it analyzed human fat samples from
cadavers obtained throughout the country, looking
for the types of toxins that accumulate in human

Four industrial solvents and one dioxin were
found in 100 percent of the fat samples.

NOTE: Dioxins have been shown to cause
reproductive and developmental problems, damage
the immune system, interfere with hormones and
also cause cancer.

Nine more chemicals, including three more dioxins
and one furan (which has been shown to cause bile
duct cancer in rats and liver cancer in mice)
were found in more than 90 percent of the fat

In general, 83 percent of the fat samples
contained PCBs (another cancer-causing agent
commonly found in our world today).

It’s really scary shit, but if you consider modern food processing methods it’s not unexpected. Consider the fact that a normal free range takes about 16 weeks to reach full maturity (didn’t want to say till it’s ripe, that just sounds plain wrong!). Now, consider that a commercial ‘battery’ chicken takes half the time, about 8 weeks from chick to fully grown.

Doesn’t that ring any bells? The truth is that it’s the same with other sources of our modern day diets. Cattle are now pumped up with growth hormone, which makes it’s way into by products such as milk e.t.c. Heck, even our fruit and vegetables are fed so many different types of chemicals that end up in YOUR plate!

So, hopefully you can see how much toxins your are accumulating in your body over time. I won’t even get into air pollution and other sources of yet more toxins in your system.

Talking of air pollution, did you catch the story of how we can use jeans to clean up the environment? I wonder what they’ll come up with next. I was hoping I’d be able to leave a comment, but alas, comments on the thread are closed!

Anyhowz, back to our topic of conversion. Whereas I did the four day liver cleanse, I’ve since learnt that there is actually a better way that includes nothing more than eating real good ole fashioned food. Yep, you read right.


I like the way Mike Geary puts it. You are going to eat anyway. Aren’t you? Why not eat foods that will actually ‘fix’ your health? Makes sense right?

The system that will do this for you is the total wellness cleanse. I’ll tell you more about it in a bit, but first, remember the five second trick I told you about at the beginning of this post? I bet you forgot all about that didn’t you?

Well the trick is based on research that has been conducted surrounding the topic of brown fat. Apparently we have two types of fat in our bodies. The normal fat referred to as white fat (though personally I think it’s more yellowish than white) and brown fat. Higher amount of brown fat are found in babies and animals that live in cold environments.

The theory is that brown fat is loaded with mitochondria (the little engines that produce energy) hence it’s brown colour. This fat actually boosts metabolism and burns white fat. That’s why babies start of really chubby but soon lose the baby fat.

Unfortunately, when you reach adulthood you lose most of your brown fat and what little you have never gets activated. The five second trick involves activating the little brown fat you have left (mostly around your back, shoulders and chest). You activate this fat by exposing it to a low temperature so it has to start burning white fat to maintain your body heat. This is achieved by a simple 5 second cold shower!

That’s it! it’s what I’ve been doing for the last few weeks and I feel absolutely WONDERFUL after that. If you want, click  to learn more about the theory behind brown fat.

Now that’s out of the way, back to our discussion.
