I want to make this clear right from the start: getting six-pack abs requires a very good diet. Youdon’t need to be perfect 100% of the time, but if you have more than 10 pounds to lose, exercisealone won’t do it. Recent research demonstrates that a solid exercise program, without a changein diet, results in little more than one pound of fat loss per month. In other words, simply exercisingisn’t enough to make dramatic changes to your physique. You should be losing double, or triple, thatamount of fat each week. This plan will show you how.Transforming your body requires a strong metabolism: the faster your metabolism, the faster you’lltransform your body. The number of calories a person burns each day depends on two factors:
How much muscle you have.
Muscle is metabolically active tissue that requires energy tomaintain. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism. Men can, and will, build musclefaster than women. That’s probably a good thing since most females don’t want to gain excessive

What you eat, and when, controls your hormones. The way you train also has an affect on hormones. Some hormones are best for building muscle; others are best for burning fat; and one hormone (insulin) is a duplicitous monster that can make or break your efforts. Again, it’s all about timing.A person who gains muscle burns more calories, even at rest, because of little furnace-like structureswithin the muscle known as mitochondria. Muscle tissue requires a lot of energy to maintain, and thatenergy is made in the mitochrondria.In order to explain how your metabolism works, think of a furnace. In the winter months your gasbill goes up because the furnace has to work harder (use more fuel) to maintain the temperature inyour house. So when your metabolic needs go up, your body burns more fat off your body, providedyou give your body fewer calories than it needs per day.The workout programs in Body of F.I.R.E.will provide the stimulus for burning fat and sculpting a lean, hard body, and this upregulates your
