For decades, you’ve been given bad advice about how to get rid of stubborn belly fat…
Most fitness “gurus” will tell you to do more cardio so you can enter your “fat-burning zone.” But that’s the last place you want to be…
Burning fat while exercising signals to your body that it needs fat. Then it trains your body to make more fat.
I’ve found a better way to help my patients eliminate abdominal fat and keep it off. I’m talking about safe and effective peptide therapy.
Peptides will play an essential role in the future of regenerative medicine.
Peptides are made up of short-chain amino acids. You can think of them as small pieces of protein that send messages to a cell, telling it what to do.
At the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, we use a unique peptide known as AOD 9604 to help patients eliminate excess abdominal fat.
AOD 9604 is a tiny fragment of human growth hormone (HGH). It stimulates the pituitary gland to speed up the metabolism without increasing appetite.
But the benefits don’t stop there. AOD 9604 can also…
- Activate lipolysis, the process your body uses to break down fat
- Prevent the creation of new fat cells, a process known as lipogenesis
- Trigger the release of fat from fat cells
- Stop non-fatty foods from turning into body fat
The research backs up what I’m starting to see in my practice.
Australian researchers tested AOD 9604 on 300 obese individuals. Each patient received the peptide daily for three months. The results stunned even the scientists…
Compared to patients who got a placebo, the peptide participants lost three times as much weight.1
And their weight loss remained steady and stable throughout the study trial. This indicates that continued treatment would result in even more significant weight loss.
A second study was done on mice genetically prone to obesity. This research found that AOD 9604 may indirectly activate apoptosis – or cell death – in white fat cells.2 As I mentioned, white fat is the flabby, bad-for-you fat that holds onto excess calories as lipids.
If the only thing AOD-9064 did was to help burn fat, that would be enough. But there’s more…
Apart from its fat-burning properties, this peptide can also:
- Relieve joint pain3
- Lower your heart attack risk 4
- Reduce diabetes risk5
- Improve bone mineral density6
- Reduce diabetes and regulate blood sugar7
- Increase muscle mass 8
It’s important to emphasize that the amino acids found within AOD 9604 are bioidentical to those found within human growth hormone. This means there are no side effects when taken properly.
Use PACE to burn belly fat.
All weight- and fat-loss therapies work much better when combined with the right workout. Earlier, I told you that cardio tells your body to store fat. On the other hand, my PACE principle tells your body to dump fat.
PACE stands for “Progressively Accelerating Cardiopulmonary Exertion,” It uses brief but vigorous daily routines of increasing intensity.
A study at Laval University in Canada compared long- and short-duration exercise programs. Researchers found those who did a short-burst workout lost the most fat.9
In fact, the short-burst group dropped 9 times more fat than the endurance group for every calorie melted!
Everyone can do a PACE workout.
It doesn’t matter what your age or physical condition is. You can choose any exercise that makes you stop and pant for breath. It could be as simple as going up and down the stairs, biking, walking or swimming.
The important thing is to increase your challenge gradually over time.
Here’s a simple walking workout to get you started…
- First, walk as far as you can for each of the three sets. Walk the first set a bit faster than you normally do. Then rest until your heart rate returns to normal.
- Next, walk as far as you can again for three sets – but go a bit faster. Rest again between sets, but make the rest period a tiny bit shorter.
- Then walk your sets again. But this time, go even faster and really pump your arms. Then push yourself to do one more set.
To Your Good Health,
