Video: Is it REALLY necessary to avoid carbohydrates such as bread, rice and fruit?
Hey, hey, hey everybody. Shaun Hadsall here, stubborn fat expert for people over 35 years old and owner of Get Lean in 12, an online community my wife Karen and I started. And it has reached well over 100,000 people across the globe just in the last few years alone. Inside this video, stop by and pay close attention if you're in your 40s, 50s, or 60s. So if you're over 35, stop by, drop a comment below.
Let us know what part of the world you're from, because I'm going to share how you can stop burning sugars and start burning fat. So these three metabolic triggers that people over 40 can use to program the body to become fat adapted. Most people have too much carbohydrate intake in their diet over time. And what ends up happening is the body becomes dependent on burning sugars instead of accessing fat as a fuel source. So inside this video, with these three metabolic triggers I'm about ready to share with you, I'm going to show you how you can shut off the body's dependence on burning sugars and get the body fat adapted so it uses fat as its primary source of energy. Now I'm also going to share with you a system I've created. It's called the Over 40 Ab Solution, and it's something that my wife Karen and I have used for years to look much younger than our real age. People always freak out when they find out that we're grandparents and have four beautiful grandkids. We have one more on the way, by the way.
But my wife is 11 years older than me. I'm 46 and she's 57, and this has taught me a ton about how to optimize hormones. When we met over 10 years ago, she was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and it was a death scare. It was probably one of the hardest times of our life. And it forced her into early menopause, suppressed all her critical hormones, and she accumulated a ton of upper belly fat. Over time, we ended up calling this her menopause belly. But the 12-minute metabolic protocols that you're going to learn about at the link around this video inside our system called the Over 40 Ab Solution, helped her flatten her belly. So when you go over to our website, you're going to learn all about her inspiring story and you're going to see her after photos. And you're also going to see progress pictures of me. Over 10 years straight I've been able to use these three triggers in our 12-minute metabolic protocols to maintain six pack abs. So you see progress pictures for over 10 years straight and how I use this information and how we walk our talk. I don't share any of this to impress you, just to impress upon you these three triggers can make a huge difference in your life.
So if you learn something in this video, which I promise you will, make sure you like this. Make sure you share this. And pay close attention. Let's talk about number one, which is manipulate glycogen. So trigger number one is we need to manipulate glycogen. Glycogen is stored energy from the carbohydrates that you eat. And it's stored inside muscle tissue, in liver tissue. Now the more efficient you can get the body to deplete and replenish glycogen, the more efficient the body becomes at accessing fat as a fuel source. So I'm going to show you exactly how to manipulate glycogen here in a second. The second trigger is to optimize hormones. Remember, if you're over 35 years old, growth hormone levels start declining rapidly.
So does testosterone, and the growth hormone condition is known as somatopause. Now the three triggers up on this board and the 12-minute metabolic protocols found inside our system are strategically designed to optimize growth hormone for people over 35 years old. There's scientific research and published studies at the bottom of our web site, over 30 of them, and a couple of them show that these 12-minute metabolic protocols can potentially elevate growth hormone 400%, all the way up to 700%. So optimizing hormones is a critical component to making sure that your body becomes fat adapted. The third thing that we're going to do, the third trigger is limit and prevent what we call fat spillover. And we do this by using some carb timing techniques. So although the diet that's found inside our system is very Keto friendly, it's very paleo friendly, we find that it's a lot more fun to be able to have carbs in your diet. So inside this video, I'm going to share with you how you can eat your favorite carbs and cheat food and prevent them from spilling over and being stored as fat on the body.
So the first thing you see up here is a picture of your body. It's a big square. I know it looks kind of funny, but this is the way to simplify fat loss. OK so in here you have muscle, tissue, organs, and glands. And out here is where you store fat. So up here is that dreaded and ugly word, fat. And then in here is your storage tank. So this is muscle and liver tissue. This is where you store energy from the carbohydrates that you eat. Now let's talk about how to manipulate glycogen. So most people that eat a regular diet consume too many carbs over time without burning them off through intense exercise. When this happens, you start filling up your storage tank and over time, this tank fills all the way to the top. So now, every time you consume carbohydrates if you're not exercising to burn them off, they have nowhere to be stored because your storage tank is full. So they will spill over and be stored as fat on the body.
That's what we call fat spillover. So most people will take the opposite approach. They'll go low carb. So they'll drag their carb. They'll just manipulate carbs until you get all the way down here so that you get their body to come over here and access fat is a fuel source. This makes sense and it does work, but it's a temporary quick fix. The Biggest Loser contestants from season eight are the perfect example. Extreme dieting and extreme exercise done over time gives you metabolic slowdown. The New York Times published a study from The Biggest Loser contestants in season eight, and almost all of them gained all or more of their weight back and they were burning 400 to 800 calories less on a daily basis because they're resting metabolic rate slowed down. So low carb dieting does work, but it's temporary. That's why you need to add carbs in strategically and manipulate glycogen. So the best way to do this is inside our system, we teach you that on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays you can use body weight movements.
You're going to use strategic movement patterns, strategic rest periods and intensity levels to optimize hormones and elevate the metabolism for 38 to 48 hours after one 12-minute session. And because your glycogen is going to be rapidly depleted from the 12-minute protocols done on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday using just your body weight. No equipment required. And what you'll do is we call this carbs up. So in the post-workout window, what ends up happening is, because muscle tissue and liver tissue has been rapidly depleted from our 12-minute metabolic protocol, now there's an influx of room for carbohydrates to come in and work their magic. So by doing this, now the carbs are more likely to be stored inside muscle tissue and liver tissue. So as you eat these carbs, you're going to be stored up in here.
So now this leads right in to manipulating hormones, or I should say, optimizing hormones. So Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we're going to go carbs up, and this is going to keep glycogen in here because the 12-minute metabolic protocols are going to prevent this spillover. Now Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays we're going to do something called deplete. These are low carb days. So we're going to do the same 12-minute metabolic protocols on these days, but we're going to use a different type of exercise. We're going to use a cardio exercise. You can still use body weight movements if you wanted to. You can use any type of cardio outside. It can be jumping rope or any type of cardio machine. And on these days, I call these the fat burning days because what ends up happening is you go under 50 grams of impact carbs per day.
So an impact carb is simply taking the total carb gram count and subtracting the fiber. What's left over is impact carbs. So on these days, you're going to get a Keto, low carb paleo, or high fat, low carb. Where you're going to basically go under 50 grams of impact carbs per day. This is what allows the body to come down here and come over here and grab fat and use it as a fuel source a few days of the week. So now, we just have to make sure that we're eating these carbohydrates post-workout Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to maximize hormones. Now number two, to optimize hormones, remember it only takes about a week of low-carb dieting and research shows that several things can happen like what happened to The Biggest Loser contestants. So it can suppress T4 to T3 conversion. This is the thyroid. It's the master gland of the metabolism.
The second thing it can do is it can suppress leptin levels. OK leptin is a hormone that communicates to the brain and to the body whether or not it should use fat as a fuel source or it should store fat and keep it on the body in the form of belly fat or body fat. The third one is this increases resting metabolic rate. So if you go low carb too long, resting metabolic rate, just like The Biggest Loser contestants, slows down. So by adding in carbohydrates in the post-workout window, we increase T4 to T3 conversion efficiency, we optimize leptin levels, and we increase the resting metabolic rate. The third thing is we want to limit and prevent fat spillover. Well, we do this by using these deplete days and these low carb days. Now one more important part of this is to optimize all of this, because you're going to be using our 12-minute metabolic protocols, the body is going to become very efficient at depleting and replenishing glycogen to access fat as a fuel source.
But over time, you're going to need a cheat day. So once a week, it's important that you have your favorite cheat meal or a cheat day to help optimize all of these hormones and keep the metabolic rate going. I'm sure you're not going be disappointed that you're going to have a cheat day. Now, before you get to your initial goals, I recommend you just have one cheat meal per week. Now once you get to your initial goals, then you can go ahead and turn it into a cheat day. So hopefully you learned something on this. If you did, can you do me a favor? Can you type yes down below, and can you share this with somebody? Give me some hearts and can you give me some likes. Now there's a few other things I want to share before I close out this video. The first thing is that when you go over to our website to learn about the Over 40 Ab Solution, learn about my wife's story, and see my pictures and all of that, you're going to see five digital guides. And sometimes people complain that this is overwhelming.
Well, we want to provide value, but I also want to keep it really simple. So focus on the Success Tracker. And when you download this guide, it will say start here in capital letters. It's 22 pages and it breaks down all this and the 12-minute metabolic protocols for you to follow step by step. So if you want to get the fastest results possible, go to the Success Tracker because it has the exact 12-minute protocols and the exact diet to follow on a day-to-day basis. Now the other thing I'd like to share is we have a 90-day money back guarantee on this system because we guarantee you it works or your money back. It's that simple. You have 90 full days to check this out. And I promise you if you apply the strategies, you'll see results in less than a week. Now the other thing I'd like to share with you is something I'm very passionate about.
We're really big at Get Lean in 12 on giving back, and we partnered with Living Water International and we install water wells in third countries to needy children and to needy families. These are people who are drinking contaminated water, the same water that cows are drinking, and they're dying from it. And so what we've done is for every person who grabs a copy of the Over 40 Ab Solution system found at the link around this video, we're going to give clean water to a needy child for almost 90 days. And although this may not sound like a big deal, last year we raised almost $30,000 and installed four water wells in needy countries, thanks to people like you who took action. So not only can you use our innovative system to optimize hormones and help you quickly lose more belly fat, you can be a part of this amazing cause. Now this year our goal is to raise $50,000, and I think we're just over $21,000 right now.
So we're on track to hit our goal, and I would love you to be a part of this. So you have nothing to lose except stubborn belly fat and everything to gain except stubborn belly fat by clicking the link around this video and checking out our system. Now before I close this out, 12 minutes is how long I've been on here. This is a long time to keep somebody's attention. So if you're still watching, I'm grateful and appreciative of that, but I want to let you know one more thing that I can almost guarantee you and that is this. When you use the strategies found inside our system, it will leak over into every other area of your life in a positive way. My wife Karen and I know for a fact that when we use our 12-minute metabolic protocols and we follow the diet the way it's supposed to be followed, that discipline leaks over into every other area.
We become better spouses to each other. We become better parents to our four children. We become better grandparents to our four grandkids, better role models, better mentors. And every other area of our life gets better. We know we're better examples for people like you as fitness professionals. And this is my promise to you. If you use our 12-minute metabolic protocols, you follow the diet inside of our system that's strategically based on these three metabolic triggers, that discipline will flow over into every other area of your life. Your confidence will explode, and you'll find that your relationships get stronger. You'll be more focused and driven in your career. You'll have more energy on a daily basis, and you'll have a positive mental attitude. And that is my promise and guarantee to you. And you are awesome for watching this.
