You do not want to end up in the post-Thanksgiving carbohydrate induced coma which an lead to accelerated body fat storage for several days following the meal.  These conditions are also associated with poor energy and focus which interfere with your ability to burn off the additional food intake.

Avoid This Fat Belly!
Warning- You Do not want to look like this on the beach!    6-9 Alpha Omega M3 with the BIG Meal will help to prevent Body Fat Accumulation, Eliminate Cravings and Lower Hunger Levels.

Execute an intense lower body weight training session to pack a high volume of intense work into 60 minutes or less 1-2 hours before your big meal to boost metabolism and fat burning hormones.

A correctly designed training session will increase muscular nutrient demand helping to drive the vast amount of raw materials made available from the big meal into hungry muscles!

A Strip Set training session making use of 2 or even 3 phases of each set by strategically reducing the loads for each phase is a metabolic and hormonal game changer, but only if you apply maximum intensity with attention to proper exercise form, rep tempos and accuracy of rest periods.

Alpha Omega M3 Interfere with Body Fat Accumulation

You must take 6 to 9 Alpha Omega M3 during the BIG meal pending your body weight to prevent body fat accumulation, reduce hunger and eliminate cravings.

Alpha Omega M3 is not only a great investment in lowering body fat levels quickly, but also keeping them low long term by creating several powerful barriers to body fat accumulation.  Satisfying and ultimately improving the function fat cells with Dr. Serrano’s proprietary blend of essential fatty acids makes it more difficult for “garbage” such as the banned ingredients listed below to penetrate the cell to increase body fat even with the diet is less than perfect.  Insulin is the body’s most potent fat storage hormone so optimizing these levels with Alpha Omega M3 keeps your fat storage capacity in check following a huge meal!

Banned Ingredients!

The Big meal should never be the first meal of the day and should not include the Fat Cell Damaging ingredients: Trans fats, Fried Foods, Processed/Refined Foods, Soy Bean Oil, High Fructose Corn Syrup or Corn Oil. These ingredients activate fat storage and can interfere with fat burning for many days or even weeks following their consumption.  Minimizing alcohol intake is also very helpful for preventing body fat accumulation as alcohol not only provides empty calories, but also lowers fat burning hormones for many days in some cases.

Avoid Your In-Laws in the Kitchen or on The Couch

Remain active all day and during the evening following the big meal to burn off food intake and to avoid eating more out of boredom.  Do work around the house and play Football in the back yard.  This will also help you avoid in your In-Laws or other troublesome relatives stationed on the couch or in the kitchen.

Ideally do not eat following Dinner and replace breakfast with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder to accelerate fat burning before eating at lunch time the following day to and to bring insulin levels back to normal (fat storage hormone).  To Burn Fat Fast between now and the end of the year you can use this modified fasting tactic as part of the KISS Rapid Fat Loss Nutrition Plan.  See Video

Eat Organic!  Organic protein choices have fewer fat storage properties even when consumed in large quantities vs. commercially raised animals.  Dietary fats within organic/grass fed animals are free of fat storage hormones such as estrogen which are typically given to commercially raised animals to increase their body weight for higher auction prices.  So get an organic turkey or other wild birds to be featured on Thanksgiving.

Take Fat Reduce FBO5 Night Time formula 2 hours before bed to ensure restful sleep associated with natural fat burning hormone regeneration. A good night of sleep will help you wake up feeling well rested and ready to take on challenges such as avoiding bad food choice left overs.  High energy levels related to optimal sleep lead to better food and exercise choices.

Train On Friday to Burn Off More Calories

Perform the Chest and Back Strip Set Training session the day following the big meal to clear more sugars from the blood stream and to take advantage of the Anabolic Hormonal Environment created by the Big Meal.

Attack Stubborn and Visceral Fat

Our clients have had great success using GCX10 Rapid Physique and Performance Enhancer 30 minutes before training to double the rate of fat loss- specifically attacking visceral and stubborn fat.  Research shows that key GCX10 ingredient Lactoferrin interferes with the accumulation of fat in cells, prevents the formation of new fat cells and increases the utilization of stored fat to be burned as fuel.

GCX10 Drives More Reps with Higher Loads and Razor Sharp Focus

Dr. Serrano also designed the GCX10 to activate the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor for improved mental focus, reduced anxiety and a higher tolerance for discomfort during high intensity exercise without the use of stimulants.  The proprietary blend of ingredients has enabled clients to use higher loads with proper form while achieving more reps and sets with the increased loads.  Triple Stack will push you to the limit, requiring the right mindset and tools to support highly productive training sessions.

Watch Dr. Serrano discuss the unique fat burning and performance improvement benefits of the GCX10.

Boost Fat Burning Hormones

Execute High Density weight training routines specifically designed to sky rocket fat burning hormones! Packing a high quality of work into a relatively short period of time is ideal not only for rapid fat burning, but also for avoiding over training by keeping training sessions to 45 minutes or less.  High Density training concepts are defined by simultaneously improving work output during a gradually shorter training session over the course of a 6 week program.  You should eagerly approach training sessions with a focused effort knowing that every intense minute will get you closer to your “shirt off” goals.

Finally Shed Stubborn Fat

We have all have time and schedule constraints so maximizing efficiency is a top priority with 3 weight training sessions and a couple of interval sprint session done at home 2 times per week.   Keeping training sessions to 45 minutes or less and Amino Loading with Dr. Eric Serrano’s proprietary blends- 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder pre/post training can prevent increases in stress hormones associated with muscle wasting and body fat accumulation while increasing the utilization of stored fat as fuel. Clients who have a higher than average stress level and associated stubborn belly fat will earn noticeable gut fat reductions within a matter of weeks by cutting down the session length in favor of a higher quality of training!

Strategic Training Progressions Every Week Drive Fat Burning

To maximize body fat loss your weight training routines must change strategically every 6 weeks. Advanced clients earn much faster rates of body fat loss with increased challenges built into the rep, tempo, and rest period schemes every 2 to 3 weeks.   Gaining strength may not be a priority to you; however improved performance drives increases in fat burning hormones.  Furthermore gradual increases in strength help men to increase lean muscle mass which is crucial for increasing the size of the calorie burning engine while improving the physique.

Customized Consultation Success

Notice we say change strategically; changing plans at random based on the latest magazine article with fancy pictures is not the best way to go.  Make sure your hard work pays off with every intense session by getting customized programs to fit your specific needs and aggressive goals.  Check out our Infinity Fitness Customized Training and Nutrition Consultation success stories here.

Method to the Fat Burning Madness- One Size Does Not Fit All!

We effectively utilize many dozens of different training concepts pending client individual needs, experience levels, injury status, muscle imbalances, performance bench marks and body composition goals.

Pushing It to the Limit

The human body can accomplish fantastic things when the appropriate training, nutrition and recovery methods are put into use.  Anyone can train with short rest periods using those feather weight pastel colored dumbbells from the aerobics classes.  However building up the work capacity to push around heavy loads using disciplined rep speeds with short rest is an unstoppable fat burning and muscle growing force.   In theory this Metabolic Pinnacle is possible to reach, however few are willing to work hard enough in the gym to make it happen.  The massive increase of lactic acid from High Density Training is a precursor to all powerful fat burning growth hormone.  The greater the quality of the workout, the higher the fat burning rewards!  At the same time heavy loading stimulates muscles fibers creating a growth opportunity

We do not want to eliminate the Lactic Acid; we just want to buffer the levels by Amino Loading with 100% MR and Muscle Synthesis Powder so we can bust out more high quality reps which separate the men from the boys! A 5-10% increase in work out put each week drives much faster fat loss and muscle growth vs. those who just go through the motions.  How do we know the exact ingredient ratios needed not only to sustain high work output, accelerate fat burning and to lay the foundation for rapid muscle growth and repair?  Muscle Biopsies, successful patient trials and hormonal blood analysis work were crucial to help Dr. Serrano crack the genetic code and determine the ideal ratios of raw materials.

Fat Cell Cleansing for a Great Six Pack

Far more than just a toxin filtrated EFA formula- Dr. Serrano designed the Alpha Omega M3 to optimize fat burning through several pathways using a proprietary blend of researched ingredients.

Double Your Training Efficiency

Alternating antagonistic super sets such as a 30 degree incline semi neutral grip press with a chest supported UH row allows for faster recovery of the nervous system and muscles between sets vs. other approaches.  Strength levels will increase dramatically with properly designed programs supporting accelerated muscle growth for men and improved definition for women.

Stuck in the Past? Or a Lean Physique Future?

Do not revert to prior programs that you are simply comfortable with for the sake of doing so.  Programs that were productive in the past will not work as well the second time around as conditions are constantly changing including recovery capacity, hormones, muscle imbalances and more!  The longer you have been training, the faster the nervous system becomes bored with training programs making new training stimuli absolutely crucial for success.

How will You look on the Beach This Summer?

Memorial Day is the kick off for Summer Outdoor Fun, but this not the case for those who do not feel comfortable in their own excess skin.

How you look with your bathing suit on becomes a harsh reality for those who are not in the physical condition they would like.

If you are not happy with the way you look, then do not settle for poor results.  Take a stand by making strategic change.  Notice the word strategic; meaning changes that make sense for you needs and not done at random.  When was the last time you over hauled your nutrition and training plan?  Just because a plan worked for you in the past, does not mean it will be effective now.  Conditions change quickly requiring new tactics to keep progress moving quickly.

There are two ways to proceed.

1. Repeat failed strategies from the past.

2. Identify the methods needed to promote your rapid success.

There is no shortage of people working hard in the gym while following a strict diet, but without the right methods their hard work will only take them so far.

Check out the consultation section of where you can see client success stories and pictures.  As they say- a picture says a thousand words, check out the before/after pictures of my 47 year old client Dan who make dramatic changes in just 12 weeks.

Customized consultation programs ensure client success not only by building an excellent plan, but also by making adjustments based on client feedback and progress.

Take Action!

It is not too late, in 30 days you can make great progress by reducing body fat, water weight and bloating to create a dramatically different appearance.   Based on many years of experience clients who consistently execute a plan for  90 days will see much faster rates of progress during the second and third month of a plan in comparison to the first.


It takes time to build Metabolic and Hormonal momentum towards your goals.  You must consistently (nobody is perfect) execute the correct training, nutrition and recovery plan to support your specific needs.   A great plan does not need to take over your life.  My clients in most cases spend less time in the gym with one of my routines than what they were using previously.  Our focus on high quality over quantity is not only a great time saver, but also a key to increasing fat burning hormones!

Double Your Rate of Progress With the Success Calendar™

I – Scott H. Mendelson have spent many years working with clients as a training and nutrition consultant and have learned that the real rate of program compliance is often far less than what clients realize.  I invented the Success Calendar as a simple tool to track not only the consistency of client execution, but also the quality.

Email for you free copy of a Success Calendar™

99% of the time any client who is not making quick progress needs only to look at their level of compliance to find quick areas of improvement.  On a daily basis I ask some clients to score themselves with a 1, 2 or 3 for a few categories.  A 3 represents perfect execution on this scoring scale and the most common areas to track are nutrition, training and recovery factors such as supplementation, sleep, stress reduction etc.

Going over the Success Calendar with some clients is a real eye opener as they clearly realize that their compliance may be under 50%!  There is no way to know without tracking these issues on paper and not going by memory.

So ask yourself over the last 7 days have you perfectly executed your nutrition, training and recovery plan?  If not there is room to improve as weekly scores over 90% lead to rapid progress and over 95% will put you in the fast lane to your dream body ASAP.

Scoring the nutrition plan is pretty cut and dry in most cases, did you make proper food choices or not?  Quality of execution often comes into play with training as it relates to the effort put towards each workouts.   Did you arrive at the gym to improve on the prior session performance?  Did you stay focused throughout the workout to push the limits of your success?  If not, then do not score yourself with a 3.  Showing up at the gym is only worthy of a 1 score in my book!
