fit manSteve Holman, an author, and creator of the F4X Workout Plan and the book, Old School, New Body, was the editor-in-chief of the Iron Man Magazine, a leader in the fitness magazines for many years now. He has met and worked with the most professional of gym and fitness trainers, and along with his wife, Becky, developed a workout plan that is healthy, time-saving, and can make you look a decade younger than you are. It is specifically targeted for individuals aged 35 and up (but is recommended for any age), and is guaranteed to show a difference in just a matter of days!

The book is compiled of information that has appeared in Iron Man over the last several years, and of knowledge gained from working with professional fitness trainers that have trained the best of the best, like Clint Eastwood, Carl Weathers (Apollo Creed from the Rocky movies) and Suzanne Summers. The book includes workouts, a nutrition plan, and action steps to take in order to start the process. This is an intense but time-saving and healthy way to slow down the aging process, build and shape muscle, and become healthier.

This workout program is built similarly for men and women. Steve and his wife Becky swear that men and women can, and should, work out in the same way. No need to work out separately or do different exercises.

There are 5 common mistakes to avoid if you want to slow down the aging process and achieve your dream body:

1. Stop The Diets! Stop eating those low-fat foods that keep being advertised as “healthy” for you. Your body needs fat in order to run correctly! If you’re constantly counting all those calories and eating only low fat, you cannot enjoy eating out! Worrying yourself to death will definitely not make you look younger…

2. Quit your crazy long cardio workouts! – Cardiovascular conditioning can be achieved in far less time and with less effort than those long gym classes and hours on the treadmill. In fact, running on the treadmill and other long bouts of cardio workouts can actually accelerate the aging process by increasing free radicals in your body and there are far smarter ways to exercise.

3. Stop blaming everything on your age! Studies have shown that even people in their 90s have been able to gain muscle tone in less than a month with some lifting exercises. People can change their bodies at any age, from 25 to 95! You should constantly challenge yourself because it’s the challenge and the constant work towards improvement that keeps you young! And what better challenge is there than staying fit and healthy?



You CAN feel young again.

Don’t believe the Gooroo?

4. Drink More Water! Water not only hydrates you and keeps you healthy-it also helps to burns fat! Water suppresses hunger and keeps your liver and kidneys healthy. Just drinking a dozen ounces a day will drop years from your face by keeping your skin hydrated and healthy!

5. Work out LESS! Steve and Becky are not saying to stop working out. They are just saying that you should go by the old-school resistance training instead of the hours upon hours of cardio classes like spinning and kickboxing. This resistance-training program includes just four specific exercises that will have you done with your workout while others at the gym are just warming up!

With an exact exercise plan that allows you to gain control of what you want to change and improve, you can get the body of your dreams and look much younger, not to mention feel healthier, with the “Old School, New Body” program.

The motto of this program, and of these two authors, is “Make it Simple, Yet Make It Challenging”. They have seen all of those crazy fads, diets, and workout plans you can find in magazines like Cosmopolitan for women and GQ for men. The time has come to forget all of those confusing, messy, and at times conflicting messages and go for this straightforward, tested and true method that professionals have been using for years!

Steve and Becky are testimonies to their own workout plan, but if you try it and do not see a significant change, there is a money back guarantee.


Are These Foods Killing Your Brain?


Are These Foods Killing Your Brain?

Are These Foods Killing Your Brain?

Did you know that Alzheimer’s is ranked as our #1 fear?

And for good reason.

As anyone over 40 knows, forgetting things and feeling less mentally sharp often becomes an unavoidable side effect of getting older.

But did you know that there are currently 3,000 food additives in the US food supply, and that could be negatively impacting your mental state?

Here are the 5 that are killing your brain:

1. MSG (monosodium glutamate) — MSG raises the amount of glutamate acid in the brain, which can cause death of nerve cells.

What’s even worse is now food manufacturers are trying to hide this ingredient with clever and innocent-sounding names; hydrolyzed protein, vegetable protein, soy protein isolate, soy protein concentrate, whey protein, and natural flavoring, spices, enzymes, autolyzed yeast extract, stock, broth and carrageenan.

Make sure to avoid this excitotoxin — it literally stimulates the brain cells until they die. One of the common sources is bouillon cubes.

2. Aspartame — Warning! This sweetener may affect your memory, and Worse…

In spite of studies that show animals fed aspartame developed seizures and brain tumors, aspartame is FDA approved and added to a lot of food and drink products.

Currently, there are 92 categories of complaints filed against aspartame with the FDA. This one is easy to avoid since it’s clearly labeled.

3. Sucralose – Another sweetener where taste just may be too good to be true.

Sucralose reduces the good gut bacteria by 50 percent, allowing your body to become toxic. This leads to damaging effects on the hippocampus, where memories are stored.

4. Diacetyl (Butter Flavoring) — Who doesn’t love a bag of popcorn?

In fact, 17.3 billion quarts are popped each year! But the home-popped variety contains the butter flavor additive diacetyl.

Diacetyl is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, a defense which prevents harmful substances from entering the brain. It causes beta-amyloid clumping which is a significant indicator of Alzheimer’s.

You won’t see diacetyl on the label, but if you see “artificial butter flavor” or “natural flavors” you should avoid it at all costs.

5. Aluminum — More than a food additive

Aluminum is a know neurotoxin. In the 1970s, autopsies revealed that people who had Alzheimer’s had a larger than normal concentration of aluminum in the brain.

Aluminum is a common food additive that can be found in baking powder and anti-caking agents. It is the most abundant metal in the the earth’s crust so it’s hard to avoid all together.

It’s in drinking water, antacids, deodorant, cans, foil, and is commonly used in cookware. Look for aluminum-free deodorants, baking powder and antacids.

The best thing you can do is try to minimize your exposure to these neurotoxins. It’s an Engineering! But what if you are already feeling less sharp mentally?

There is hope. Renowned Doctor and Nutritionist Dr. Sam Walters has assembled a breakthrough formula from the natural world that could give you back your piece of mind.

Dr. Walters has just recorded and released an exclusive video presentation.

In this presentation Dr. Walters reveals:

  • The two incredibly well spread myths that could be killing your brain
  • The 3 main causes of brain aging & a natural way to stop them
  • The #1 secret to REALLY eliminating brain fog once and for all

How to Prevent Unhealthy Snacking from Destroying Your Diet

How to Prevent Unhealthy Snacking from Destroying Your Diet

One of the hardest things in life is sticking to a healthy diet.  Experts recommend you plan your meals in advance, so you aren’t tempted when faced with less-than-healthy alternatives. But, let’s face it—planning every meal can be really hard. And, for a lot of us, snacking is our downfall.

The average American eats almost 25 percent of their daily calories from snacking alone, and snacking is the leading cause of childhood obesity.

So, there are two options available: Stop snacking (hard) or snack healthier (simple).

But, for a many of us, differentiating what’s “healthy” and how much to consume are two different things. After all, many nuts are considered heart healthy. But, if you don’t keep the portions in check it can seriously derail your diet.  It’s easy to consume double or triple the serving size amount without knowing any better.

A New Solution That Stops Snoring and Lets You Sleep


A New Solution That Stops Snoring and Lets You Sleep

A New Solution That Stops Snoring and Lets You Sleep

If you constantly feel exhausted, experience headaches for no obvious reason or have high blood pressure, it could be the result of snoring.

More than a simple annoyance, snoring is also the most common symptom of a potentially serious health problem—obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Over 18 million Americans snore, and it’s related to OSA. People who suffer from OSA repeatedly and unknowingly stop breathing during the night due to a complete or partial obstruction of their airway.  It occurs when the jaw, throat, and tongue muscles relax, blocking the airway used to breathe.  The resulting lack of oxygen can last for a minute or longer, and occur hundreds of times each night.

OSA has been linked to:

  • Acid reflux
  • Frequent nighttime urination
  • Memory loss
  • Stroke
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Heart attack
  • Consistent lack of sleep

People over 35 are at higher risk. OSA can be expensive to diagnose and treat — up to $5,000 — and those treatments can sometimes be quite painful. Plus, they’re not always covered by insurance.

However, a recent study published by Eastern Virginia Medical School’s Division of Sleep Medicine concluded that wearing a simple chinstrap while sleeping can be an effective treatment for OSA.

The chin strap, which is now available from a company called MySnoringSolution, works by supporting the lower jaw and tongue, preventing obstruction of the airway.  It’s made from a high-tech, lightweight, and super-comfortable material.  Thousands of people have used the MySnoringSolution chinstrap and reported better sleeping, and better health overall because of it.

An effective snoring solution for just $119

The “My Snoring Solution” Chinstrap is available exclusively from the company’s website, which is currently offering a limited time “2 for 1” offer.  The product also comes with an unconditional 90-day, money-back guarantee!

If you want to stop snoring once and for all, without expensive CPAPs or other intrusive devices, this may be the solution you’ve been waiting for.
