ATTENTION MEN: No matter how hard you work or how disciplined your diet, if your hormones aren’t working for you, they’re working against you.
Discover How to Fix Your Fat Loss Hormones with 5 Simple and Fast Steps that will Unlock Your Fat Loss Potential.
From the Office of Chad Howse,
Trying to burn fat and build a leaner, better body, is a struggle for most of us. It's a struggle wrought with trial and error and seemingly endless dieting that leaves us scrawnier and flabbier.
In this article I'm going to show you how to end this frustration. I'm also going to show you how to release your body's natural fat loss hormones with simple changes to your routine, diet, and training, making your body more efficient at burning fat.
- Feeling run down and out of energy?
- Finding that you suffer from a low sex drive?
- Finding it tough to burn fat even though you're doing what you're "supposed to do"?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions it's likely that your fat loss hormones are broken. It's also likely that your fat storing hormones are thriving.
The good news?
Fixing your fat loss hormones is simple, and when your fat loss hormones are optimal, all of this pent up frustration will be tossed out the window.
If you want to burn fat, and even build muscle at the same time, you're going to want to read the info in this article, because your body depends on your hormones NOT your genetics to burn fat, and I'm going to show you how to fix the hormones that have been broken by an ass-backwards diet and fitness industry that does more to hurt your natural ability to burn fat fast.
To have a body that burns fat easily, you need to increase your fat burning hormones and decrease your fat storing hormones. Most diets miss this first and most important step.
Most diets focus on the calories.
They see fat loss as a matter of calories in vs calories out, and this is a big part of fat loss, to burn fat you have to burn more energy than you consume, but you have to be smart about how you go about this. What they fail to see is that our hormones effect both the kind of weight we lose (fat or muscle), how much we lose it, and how healthy and strong we stay while we’re losing fat.
The calories in vs calories out (or burned) mode of doing things also has a few drawbacks that we’ll cover a bit later in the article. By wreaking havoc on your fat loss hormones through mainstream dieting you can stop your body’s ability to burn fat, fortunately there’s a simple solution.
Here’s the thing…
When you diet, you slow your metabolism and burn muscle. There is, however, an intelligent way to burn fat and it starts with your hormones.
Most people follow the same advice, and most people fail. While everyone else “zigs”, don’t you think it’d be better to “zag”?
While everyone starves themselves while they over-train and create a body that’s resistant to fat loss, wouldn’t it be wise to follow a more intelligent approach, one that requires that you eat more delicious man-foods and perform workouts that actually help you get stronger and more athletic while helping you cut more fat than those high-repetition fad workouts and circuits do?
Wouldn’t it be better to increase the hormone that makes you a man, that decreases your likelihood of disease, cancer, and depression, while also burning optimal amounts of fat in a much shorter amount of time by eating like a man, training like a man, and living like a man?!
When we’re talking about fat loss, there are some main “players” in the game that help you either burn more fat or store more fat; hormones that will help you or hurt you, and somehow mainstream diets have gained popularity while hurting the hormones that make fat loss easy for all of us.
First, imagine what it would be like to walk around with your head held high, not because of the looks that others give you, but because of the quiet confidence you have that comes with being optimal, with being at your best both physically and athletically.
Imagine looking like the badass you know you are deep down. Imagine finally breaking the chains that bind you to a life of mediocrity, a shell of the man you can be. Today we'll unleash your fat loss hormones and your potential at the same time!
7 Flaws of Mainstream Fat Loss Programs
The funny thing about where much of the industry is headed is that it’s in the opposite direction of logic.
Men are getting fatter, fact.
Men’s testosterone levels are declining, fact.
Our diets and our environments and even how we train is often negatively effecting our ability to produce testosterone at optimal levels, and yet most diets continue to purely address the caloric aspect of dieting.
I thought the mainstream approach to dieting was the truth for a very long time. I actually tried in vain for 7 years (at least I’m persistent) to build my ideal body by gaining muscle and burning fat, but all that happened was a considerable amount of muscle loss and a great deal of fat gained over that period (especially around the love handles).
The turning point in my journey, a journey that has since allowed me to help thousands of other guys build their ideal bodies, started with a visit to the doctor, but also a refusal to listen to the doctors orders…
Let me explain…
As testosterone declines in the modern male, our body fat levels are increasing.
After such a long time being frustrated by the results I was getting I read something about the decline of testosterone in the modern male. I looked a little deeper and found a study conducted by researchers out of Boston.
The group of researchers found that this decline in testosterone is independent of age-related declines in T. In their words,
These results indicate that recent years have seen a substantial, and as yet unrecognized, age-independent population-level decrease in T in American men, potentially attributable to birth cohort differences or to health or environmental effects not captured in observed data.
Being a guy who desperately wanted a reason for my inability to build the body I wanted other than my crappy genetics, I headed to the doctor to see if my testosterone levels where optimal for my age. And guess what, they weren’t.
This was both good and bad news…
For one, I now knew of at least one reason as to why I had this “resistant” body. But I had no idea how to naturally increase my testosterone levels, nor did I know if testosterone really effected my fat loss, or the fat loss of my growing list of clients.
What I did know, is that I didn’t want to opt for the “treatments” that so many doctors prescribe, and so, I went back to the drawing board. I wanted to figure out what testosterone did, how it helped or hurt my body composition, if increasing my T levels would help me burn fat, but I also wanted to know more about other hormones, and their effects on my body, and if I could have been going about this fitness thing having missed some of the most important steps along the way.
Now, I thought lower T levels would stop me from building muscle, little did I know that testosterone not only helps guys build more muscle, but it actually kills the cells in our bodies that store fat. And the true power of testosterone as it relates to body composition and our overall health, is only beginning to be discovered.
Furthermore, researchers in another study found that low testosterone levels were a leading cause in male obesity!
What began to really get me going was that there’s so much in mainstream diets and training protocol’s that hurt our testosterone levels, rather than helping them…
The truth about how your body burns fat and why you’re making this quest nearly impossible by following commonly believed myths.
Over the next few years I started studying testosterone and other hormones involved in the fat loss process, from hormones like cortisol and estrogen that STOP men from burning fat, to Growth Hormone and Leptin and Irisin, that actually HELP men burn more fat and hold on to that metabolically active muscle that makes sustained fat loss possible.
Not only did this information help me build my ideal body (there's me on the right), but it helped me help those thousands of other guys who were stuck, frustrated by the maximal effort they were putting in that yielding minimal results.
The capacity for optimal fat loss is within you, you've just been messing up the hormones that can make this capacity a reality.
It’s opened my eyes to a few things:
1. You don’t have to kill yourself with hours of training, if you train effectively, you can cut the amount of time you spend in the gym, but end up with a much better body.
2. You shouldn’t actually follow a purely “high fat/low carb diet”, or a “high carb/low fat diet”. The answer to optimal fat loss is an effective diet, and that can mean very different things for men and women…
… Keep in mind that women make up roughly 80% of the fitness and nutrition market, so who do you think most diets are made for? Hmmm…
3. It’s your hormones that help you burn fat and perform more efficiently, and there’s SO MUCH we can do to naturally increase our fat burning hormones, and naturally decrease our fat STORING hormones.
Discover why so many diets and workouts have failed you (hint: they hurt your fat loss hormones)
Fat Loss Fix #1: Fix Your Metabolism
Most diets make you diet. And diet and diet and diet until you should “mathematically” get to the weight you want to get to.
But our bodies, in all their wonder and glory, don’t work like that. They have a natural desire to create a homeostatic atmosphere and regulate the energy we’re expending.
Thus, when we decrease our calories over a long period of time, our bodies slow our metabolism to account for the lack of energy we’re consuming. This way we can workout harder and longer and eat less, and still hold on to the body fat we need because of our body will store it in case of future “emergencies”.
This also leads to a loss of muscle mass when we diet for too long, making sustained fat loss virtually impossible - there is another way, fortunately.
So what’s this solution?
Well, if you’ve been dieting and you’ve noticed that you’re just not getting the results you once did, it’s likely time to “re-set” your metabolism.
It’s a simple process that requires you to start EATING MORE.
Yes, you heard me correctly…
There’s a strategy behind it, you don’t just stuff your face, you strategically consume a greater number of calories each week until you’re consuming what you’re burning, the key is to consume what you’re burning without gaining any weight.
This is something that I’ll help you out with in a bit, but it’s something that most “diet gurus” hide from, because it’s a long term approach to healthy and effective fat loss rather than the binging that gets quick results that are following by even quicker results gaining that weight back.
Fat Loss Fix #2: Increase Your Testosterone Levels by Increasing Your Dietary Fat
So when you start your diet you should actually begin it by eating more?
Correct, and as you eat more, and as you begin your diet, as a man, you should increase your daily intake of dietary fats.
Testosterone is the most powerful fat loss hormone in your body. If you can produce optimal testosterone levels, you can produce optimal fat loss.
Now, as we mentioned previously in that study done by researchers from Boston, there’s a decline in testosterone in men that’s independent of age. This also means that no matter what age you are, there’s a good chance you’re going to benefit from a natural increase in your testosterone levels.
Side Note: Doctors may prescribe injections or TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) as a quick fix. The problem with this is that it will also bring your body’s ability to naturally produce testosterone to a screeching halt, making you dependent on a bioidentical form of testosterone that isn’t even close to the quality of the hormone that you naturally produce anyway - so stay away from TRT or other forms of testosterone “therapy”.
To produce optimal testosterone levels, you need to feed your body the building blocks of the hormone, and the building blocks of testosterone is cholesterol.
Cholesterol comes from dietary fats like the saturated, polyunsaturated, and monounsaturated fats we get from delicious man-foods like animals and fishies, but also some fruits and nuts.
The BEST fat loss diet for a man must include a hefty variety of these fats (up to 35% of your daily macronutrient intake).
Fat Loss Fix #3: Stop Training for “Fat Loss” to Increase Insulin Sensitivity
One of the biggest myths surrounding fat loss is in the way people train to burn fat.
Many a year ago I was getting my personal training certification. In the guide book they had 3 designations for rep counts that helped people reach a certain goal, and it went as follows:
2-6 reps = Strength Training
8-12 reps = Muscle Building
15-20 reps = Fat Loss
(This is what your trainer is taught, and it's wrong)
The problem is that studies are continually showing the it’s the lower rep ranges that help men burn the most fat.
Because when you’re at a caloric deficit, that is, you’re consuming fewer calories than you’re burning, you tend to burn more muscle than fat (if you’re following a mainstream diet).
As you burn muscle, your body’s ability to burn fat slows, your fat storing hormones like cortisol and estrogen rise, and your transformation comes to another screeching halt.
Strength training helps you maintain that lean, metabolically active muscle. Lean muscle mass also increases your insulin sensitivity, helping you use more of your carbohydrates for fuel rather than storing them as fat.
Now, this isn’t just one study that shows this, but many, and yet every time I walk into a gym I see people who want to burn fat focusing on higher reps, circuits, and longer, slower forms of cardio that have been proven to not only not work as well, but they take up much more of your time to produce a much worse result.
Seems crazy doesn’t it?!
Fat Loss Fix #4: Add Cinnamon to Your Post Workout Shake
In this case cinnamon is actually a supplement, it’s something that aids you in your quest to burn more fat. In the case of cinnamon, it increases your insulin sensitivity, again, helping you use your carbs for fuel rather than storing them as fat.
This will help you retain more lean, metabolically active muscle and burn more fat as fuel. But there are other supplements that really do work, like BCAAs, they help you hold on to your metabolic and anabolic muscle when you’re training. You don’t want to lose muscle, if you lose muscle you create a body that’s less efficient at burning fat.
Vitamin D3 and zinc both help block aromatase, which is the process by which your body turns testosterone into estrogen. By supplementing effectively you increase your good hormones and decrease your bad hormones. The thing that most people fail to realize is that with simple tricks like these, you can create a body that simply burns fat at a much higher rate and with greater efficiency.
Fat Loss Fix #5: Eat More Protein
Protein is seen as a “muscle building” ingredient by many in the mainstream, the fact of the matter is that it becomes an even more important piece of your diet when your goals are to burn fat.
Keep in mind a couple things:
a. You want to hold on to as much muscle as possible - and even GAIN muscle - while you’re burning fat. It just makes the fat burning process a lot easier and more efficient, it keeps your metabolism increasing and healthy, and it keeps your insulin sensitivity high.
b. Your body uses more energy to break down a gram of protein than any other macronutrient.
When you hear that protein is “thermogenic”, this means that the energy used to break down protein and convert it to energy is quite high, and the effects on our metabolism are evident. You want to increase your protein intake when you’re aiming to burn fat in comparison to other goals.

- Welcome to a method where you're going to SHRED fat while keeping - even gaining - your metabolically active muscle.
FYFLH Training Phase 2 – Accumulation
This is a 4 week, extreme volume built to condition your body for optimal hypertrophy training. The goal in this phase is to optimize training efficiency by increasing the muscles lactate threshold so that you can work with heavier loads for more time.
This well-structured accumulation phase will help set the stage for great muscle growth for months to come. And again, while we're eating for fat loss, fixing our fat loss hormones from a training perspective actually lies in maximizing and maintaining as much lean muscle mass as possible while cutting fat.
Increases in lean muscle mass will increase your metabolism and your insulin sensitivity as well as your testosterone levels. In short, more lean muscle mass = less body fat.
FYFLH Training Phase 3 – Hypertrophy
This phase in the Fix Your Fat Loss Hormones training capitalizes on the adaptations achieved in the previous two training phases. The strength developed in the intensity phase will allow you to train with a heavier load thus enhancing the levels of muscular tension.
The metabolic efficiency that was achieved from the accumulation phase will allow for a heightened capacity of overall volume. Maxing phase 3 the phase in which you maximize your muscular potential.
It's in this phase that will coincide with the last 4 weeks of your diet, where you're going to experience some incredibly visible results.
