Check back tomorrow for the answer and a new question from fitness expert Bruce Krahn.

Answer to yesterday’s question: Research has shown that CLA, also known as conjugated linoleic acid (naturally occuring in beef and dairy products), can prime your fat cells for “apoptotic depletion” or cell death. CLA also appears to have an affinity towards abdominal fat cells. I recommend taking 3 grams/twice daily of the supplemental form of CLA at a dose of 3-6 grams per day.

Bruce Krahn, celebrity personal trainer and bestselling author of The Fat Fighter Diet, is coming to Alberta.

The Mississauga-based fitness guru is slated to present a free lecture next month in Calgary.

Yup, free.

Krahn really knows his stuff and he presents it in a way that’s easy for his audience to understand and apply.

If you’re looking to kickstart your fitness regimen in 2013 and you’re going to be in Cowtown on Jan. 17, then you won’t want to miss this event.

Sifting Through the Oz-Approved Weight Loss Maze 

Bruce Krahn offers simple tips to figure out what will work for you 

free public lecture

Community Natural Foods downtown (1304 10 Ave. Southwest)

Jan 17 @ 7pm free

Type weight loss into doctoroz.com and over 4,500 articles on the subject are available for your perusal. Now that’s a workout for the brain!  “And it explains why most people are as confused as ever about how to lose weight and get in shape,” says Bruce Krahn, celebrity fitness expert & author of The Fat Fighter Diet.

From hypnosis to the power of positive thinking; lazy day workouts to spot reducing exercise; fibre to the power of protein;  from safflower oil to fish oil and coconut oil; green coffee bean extract to raspberry ketones; fertility weight loss to caveman weight loss; Qnexas to Qsymia; the list goes on and on.

Krahn simplifies fitness, nutrition and weight loss strategies by insisting on these 3 attributes:

·         Human scientific studies on effectiveness

·         Research proven dosage/time/intensity

·         Proven safety

His motivation: “A lean, well nourished body is a healthy body and I can help you achieve it-naturally,” says Krahn. “With proper nourishment and regular activity, you will feel more energized, while reducing your risk for serious disease and illness – not to mention a slimmer waistline too.”

Exercise:

Don’t waste your time in the gym. Discover how and when to exercise to get the most bang in the shortest time.

1.      Highest metabolic cost exercises

2.      Crunchless abs

3.      Timing of exercise depends on your fitness goals

4.      How much cardio, stretching, resistance training

Nutrition:

“You can’t out-exercise a bad diet,” says Krahn. “How you eat will determine your bodyweight. How you exercise determines your body shape.”

1.      Eat every 2-3 hours

2.      Protein and fruits and vegetables at every meal and snack

3.      Eliminate sugar

4.      Drink 8-12 glasses of water a day

5.      Add essential fatty acids

Weight loss ingredients:

While there are no “magic pill” solutions for easy weight loss, when combined with a healthy diet and exercise, they can help boost your results and achieve your goals.

1.      Determine your major issue: cravings, slow metabolism, belly fat, feeling hungry all the time. Do you want to increase lean muscle or your energy levels?

2.      Research proven ingredient?

3.      Research proven dosage?
