The Hidden Truth About Cardio
How your daily gut busting routine may actually be preventing weight loss and pushing you
closer to death
In western cultures like ours, countries like the U.S., UK, Australia, Canada and other European nations,
what’s the first thing that anybody thinks of or tells you whenever the idea of weight loss is brought up?
You’ve got to hit the treadmill, exercise bike or the streets and burn those calories!
On the surface of it, this makes sense, right? After all, you’re doing a lot of work and you’re sweating
and breathing heavy. Surely running a few miles every day must be dissolving those unsightly LB’s like
Would you be surprised to hear that this is actually wrong?
No, I’m not crazy – let me lay it out for you…
Yes, cardio does burn calories, it’s true. And yes, some cardio is good for you. Light cardio promotes a
healthy heart and increases your endurance. On the other hand, though… heavy cardio actually begins
to have the opposite effects.
Before I get into why, let me give you a simple but common sense example. Imagine pre-historic Man.
These men and women are running around the Paleolithic world chasing down antelope, red deer,
aurox, bison and the occasional wooly mammoth. Most of their diet comes from animal protein and
what edible plants they can scrounge.
Well, if cardio was so great for losing weight, these people would simply starve to death while running
down their food. All that cardio would burn through their energy reserves faster than they could
replace them. Yet they didn’t starve to death… why?
For one thing, a lot of heavy cardio is hard on your knees and feet. Second, it’s also hard on the heart.
Too much cardio actually begins to add scar tissue to your heart and increases your rate of heart attack.
We didn’t realize that for a while until many scientific studies were done on the subject.
As for losing weight, excessive cardio actually has the reverse effect and here’s why. Our bodies are
genetically designed to survive. Our body’s job is to store energy as fuel both for its immediate use and
in the form of fat for those times when food is scarce. In modern times, of course, food isn’t really
scarce, so this built in safety feature is rarely needed.
However, when you deprive your body of the nutrients it requires, either by starving yourself on some
crazy diet or by over-taxing your body with lots of cardio, it begins to switch into survival mode.
Additionally, and unfortunately with heavy cardio, your body also becomes anabolic.
This means that it begins to burn the most effective source of energy first – and that’s not fat… it’s your
muscle. Take a good look at some of these chronic long distance runners who compete. Many of them
are kind of stringy looking and have to pack in the carbs just to maintain their muscle mass.
You want your body to burn fat, not muscle, obviously. It’s not really about calories, as many diets and
so-called fitness gurus try to make you believe. Calories are only a means of measuring food energy.
Yes, if you want to lose weight, you must take in less calories than you consume, yet there’s so much
more to it than that.
The biggest secret to weight loss isn’t running 10 miles every day, starving yourself or even avoiding
some of your favorite carbs, believe it or not. In fact, if you’re going to lose weight properly, it’s actually
important that you do eat some of your favorite foods!
I know that sounds crazy, too – but it’s absolutely true, and I can prove it to you! If you know how to
use your body’s natural processes to your advantage, it’s entirely possible to lose 10, 20 or even 30+
pounds in a single month without starvation diets, gut wrenching cardio, ridiculous workouts and eating
anything gross! It’s true and I can show you the science to prove it!

The #1 Most Common Food You Should NEVER Cut From Your Diet!
Ever since the 1970’s when folks like Jim Fix with his jogging book and of course fitness icon Richard
Simmons began to get the world onto the fitness band wagon, a lot of information has come through
our TV’s about how to lose weight and get healthy.
Unfortunately, much of it is inaccurate, misunderstood or even dangerous over time. The weight loss
industry generates something over $70 billion in the U.S. alone… it’s big business and these companies
and personalities know how to tap into our psyches and tickle those nerves that make us want to try
their pills, foods, workouts and vibrating belts that melt the fat while you veg out in front of the tube.
Food has always been one of these areas that’s capitalized on the last 40+ years of America’s and other
nations’ weight loss craze. First it was reduced fat and fat free! Sounds great, right? Yeah, except that
when they take the fat out of your favorite cookies, they simply replace it with more sugar… hmm,
doesn’t sound so great, does it?
In the early 2000’s, if you recall, carbs became fitness public enemy #1. All of a sudden, people who a
year before barely even knew what carbohydrates were began to go on no carb diets. Then it was
gluten. Again, before 2010 or so, most folks never even heard of this thing… and now, it seems like
every food has a gluten-free substitute and half of all living humans are allergic to it.
But you know what one of the most attacked food items has always been, even before the 70’s – salt!
Yes, good old sodium chloride is the arbiter of all that’s evil in the world. Salt raises your cholesterol…
oh, no that’s actually not true… salt is a key ingredient in weight gain… oh, that’s false too…
The truth is, in fact, that salt is absolutely vital to your body’s health. It’s needed in the bio-chemistry of
your cells. Yet even more obvious is that when you cut salt out of your diet, you actually inhibit your
body’s ability to digest food! And of course, that means putting on more weight and also limiting the
amount of nutrients you can absorb.
Salt helps your body balance and optimize the PH level in your stomach. In other words, it helps make
sure that your stomach acid is strong enough to break down the food you eat so that the nutrients in it
can more effectively be absorbed as it passes through your digestive tract.
Salt is actually one incredibly important element in any good weight loss program. Like many people, I
thought differently until running into a Korean medical student in Afghanistan who opened my eyes to a
whole new – yet ironically ancient – way of looking at health, fitness and weight loss. He showed me
the science behind what eastern cultures have known for millennia.
If you’re looking to lose weight, or you’ve ever been frustrated by your lack of progress… some of the
latest science may shock you as to why. There are myths about weight loss that we’ve been fed for far
too long and yet the scientifically proven and tested truth has simply been lying in the grass waiting to

It’s been proven to be more addictive than cocaine…
The secret ingredient found in most foods that’s steadily adding fat to
Do you remember the big stink in the U.S. a few years back surrounding McDonald’s and their food,
most notably French fries? It was the big trans-fat scare! That’s right, we were being poisoned by the
evil clown with deadly fat and something had to be done!
Yeah, because we’re not adults or anything…
So the government stepped in and the burger giant was forced to change their frying oil. On the surface
of it, it’s nice of good old Uncle Sam to take care of us right? To watch out for we, the ignorant masses,
and make sure that when we’re shoving super-sized fries into our feed holes that they’re not entirely
Okay… but do you know that despite the choice you make to visit Mickey Dee’s, there is in fact
something found in virtually every can, box or bag of food in the grocery aisle that’s incredibly addictive,
almost immediately turns to fat when you eat it and is one of the leading causes of most of the ailments
we suffer today?
So what is this killer, which is not only ignored by the government but actually supported by it?
That’s right, processed sugar in its many forms is one of the most used ingredients in all processed and
packaged foods. That includes regular white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, maltodextrin and a host of
Want proof? Try this experiment the next time you go shopping. Walk down the aisles and examine the
stuff you normally buy. Including stuff you wouldn’t even think they’d put sugar in – soup, salad
dressing, instant potatoes, juice, frozen foods and even baby foods…
Now, if you read the list of ingredients you’ll find some of the sugars I mentioned above. Keep in mind
that this list of ingredients is organized from the highest concentration to the lowest. So if some kind of
sugar is listed in the first three ingredients – and it’s often #1 or #2 – then you’re eating a whole lot of it.
Sugar is a killer and, while okay in small quantities, is extremely unhealthy, fattening and addictive.
That’s right – thousands of independent clinical studies have shown that sugar is more addictive than
cocaine and even heroine…
…and it’s in virtually everything we eat!
So is it any wonder why you might find it hard to drop the poundage?
Here’s something else to ponder before we say goodbye. There’s actually a list of vegetables that are
routinely served in restaurants and found in the produce section of the grocery store that are generally
thought to be healthy… but are actually very bad for you and inhibit your ability to drop weight!
Health, fitness and weight loss are complex issues and we’ve been fed a lot of myths over the years.
