What Your Body Fat Says About You And How You Can Change That Message

Article by Nick Mitchell of www.UPFitness.co.uk

Debunking myths is always a fun thing.  Everyone is interested in a challenge and standing out from the crowd, so today we will kick off a series of articles where we turn around preconceived notions of spot reduction (the dropping of body fat from one specific area of the body) and optimal body composition, and instead of supposedly leaving things to fate and resigning ourselves to the hand we were always told that we were dealt, look at how we can regain control of our bodies and radically improve our physiques and athletic performance through optimal hormonal modulation – improving your physique and your health by improving your own hormonal profile.  All through a process known as BioSignature Modulation.

What Do You Really Know About Your Body?

If you have been reading this blog for any length of time then you should be well educated in what makes the human body tick.  You know that you need to exercise regularly, that you need to be slightly less erratic with your lifestyle than Britney Spears if you want to make progress in the gym, and that it’s impossible to spot reduce those love handles.  This last point is especially obvious, after all every expert you have ever read has told you that spot reduction is impossible and that fat is lost from all over the body and never from one localized place.  Only a dummy who buys those “electro stimulation for lean abs” kits (absolute quackery by the way) on the Shopping Channel would ever think otherwise.

Man Boobs Versus Love Handles – what’s the difference

Yet stop and think for a minute.  Never automatically buy into anything a so-called expert tells you (including yours truly). Let’s use a bit of logical reasoning.  First of all why is it that so many of us are interested? A brief visit to one of my London facilities will show even the casual observer that interested is more like obsessed, in ditching certain specific areas of unsightly flesh.  For those of you reading this who are male, I would speculate that the majority are most interested in shedding a bit of blubber around the belly button (we are more susceptible to the effects of the stress hormone cortisol than women, hence we store fat more readily in this area – but more on that later).   Then again, there will also be a fair proportion who want nothing more than to be rid of their love handles, especially after the recent Christmas pudding and Quality Streets binges.  And no doubt there are some of you with the dreaded man boobs – you guys have got bigger problems than ugly fat deposits, squatting to pee and needing cuddles after sex to name but two, but I have yet to meet a man who is proud of his jiggly chest.  Now if, as you have always been led to believe, all fat is the same and you can’t selectively “burn it off”, then why on earth does it sit its lardy self at different speeds, in different quantities,  on different parts of our bodies? If all fat is equal, then surely it would be laid down in a nice even layer everywhere on everybody.

Which raises the subject of the second aspect of fat distribution that I’d like you stop and ponder awhile on.  When you see Betty, sorry I mean Benny, sashaying across the football pitch with his training bra firmly holding his mighty “pecs” in place, what do you automatically think to yourself? If its “nice rack” then you have questionable taste and this is probably not the right website for you, but if it’s “this poor chap has localised body fat distribution patterns consistent with female hormone issues, most notably the aromatisation of testosterone into estrogen” and /or “Benny is turning into a chick” then full marks and go to the top of the class.  It shouldn’t then take a genius to figure out that if we address Benny’s hormonal issues then his moobs (man boobs) should thankfully become a thing of the past.  And if we can apply this theory to one area of local fat distribution, then we can also apply it to all the other areas too.

Nature Versus Nurture – We Are Slaves To Both

Any, and I do mean any, disproportionate distribution of body fat is caused by a combination of your own genetics and unique biochemistry interacting with your environment.  In other words, nature and nurture combining.  We see it more noticeably with women, perhaps because we spend more time studying them.  Did you really think it was a mere coincidence that so many gorgeous Latin girls morph into wide loads as soon as they hit 30? Or that Anglo Saxon girls turn pear shaped whereas Slavic girls develop thick upper arms that would make a shoplifter proud?  This is because their genotypes mean differing hormonal reactions and this in turn means a different distribution of body fat.  The lesson here should be obvious – she who controls hormones controls body composition.

BioSignature Modulation – You Can Control Your Hormones

I would love to be able to claim credit for formulating the system that has allowed us to dissect fat distribution patterns, their hormonal causes, and the ways to then modulate the hormonal profile so as to optimise body fat composition (spot reduce in other words).  Full credit for that however, goes to Charles Poliquin, the leading American based strength coach of countless top professional athletes, who first brought this to the attention of the world and personally instilled in me the overwhelming passion to be firmly entrenched at the very forefront of the real world application of scientific research on health, peak physical performance and conditioning.

This hormonal optimisation system, christened by Charles as BioSignature Modulation, is, in the hands of a skilled practitioner with experience of fine tuning body composition, the single best and most effective way to get in shape because everything is tailored to the individual’s unique biochemistry.  Modulating endogenous hormonal levels, as opposed to taking the easy way out and using fat burning / muscle building exogenous hormone drugs, takes skill and what I call “educated effort”.  Nothing can be left to chance and all aspects of an individual’s physical and mental influences need to be scrutinised – gym and diet are important yes, but the chain being only as strong as its weakest link cliché holds very true also.  An optimal hormonal profile is only achieved via a balanced approach that covers every permutation of the correct and highly individual-specific protocols for exercise, nutrition, supplementation with herbal and other related products, sleep, digestion, relaxation, and any other lifestyle factor that can impact upon physical, emotional, and mental energies.

Lessons To Be Learned

Always question what you are told and think through the logic in everything that is “supposed” to happen to your body.  Look to the real reasons as to why your body behaves differently from that of your friends, and remember that the optimal hormonal profile for both muscle building and fat loss is within your control.

Here’s the 10 Modules I will be BURNING INTO YOUR PRETTY LITTLE LEADER SOUL during our time together!

(A Module a day keeps the peasant energy away)

Module 1: Leader Energy

Owning it, being it, living it, no excuses, just dropping in to NOW being the unquestionable next level leader who EVERYBODY looks to and who runs the damn thing. I don’t have to tell ya –
We could pretty much just do this module and you’d be done.

 Module 2: Multi-Millionaire Leader BELIEFS

Wealthy people have certain beliefs which broke ass peeps do not. It is what it is and that’s all it is. Guess what? PURPOSE driven wealthy peeps are another level altogether.
Change your beliefs >
Change your life.
It’s THAT freaking simple.

 Module 3: Leader Sales Hustle and Monetization

Leaders sell how leaders sell and they monetize with NO shame, ALL soul, and all RESULTS.
This is a mindset AND it’s about gettin’ real with what works.
So that’s what we’re gonna do!

 Module 4: Leader Content Creation

Look, nobody needs or gives a fuck about any more lame ass low-vibe please look at me teaching and preaching.
The Internet IS full. Boring does NOT sell. Too many folks are out there just trying to re-churn what everybody else is doing.
BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SPACE FOR THE NEXT MAGNETIC AF LEADER TO TAKE CHARGE.
I’ll show you how to pull that out of you. And explode it to the world.

 Module 5: Leader Social Media OWNING

Let’s get you big.

Engaged.

Listened to.

EVERY WORD HUNG OFF.

And consistently fucking paid.

Social media is a VERY easy tool to make work for you and nope I’m not talking about analytics or algorithms. I’m talking about being everywhere, all the time, in a way they can’t ignore, and also with minimum effort for maximum result.

 Module 6: Leader Squad

Leaders don’t do shit that leaders don’t do or leaders ain’t leaders. We are gonna sort out your support system and streamline your LIFE. With or without ‘team’. I started with this with NO staff or team, NO money, and yet I still knew how to keep my energy and time to what mattered and let other people pick up my slack.
Leaders are supported and lifted up, PERIOD. Let’s get this happening for you.

 Module 7: Leader Daily Disciplines, Practices, Routines, Must Dos and Absolutely-Fucking-Will-Not-Dos!

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE.

Also probably the real thing (energy aside!) that gets you paid big.

 Module 8: Leader ABUNDANCE Creation

ALL the calling-in-of-money shiz-niz you need to know about and EVERY damn thing I have done over the years to dial it up from broke to abundant and rich-from-soul AF.

Module 9: Leader Lit-Up-Ed-Ness and Joie de Vivre

People ain’t gonna be interested if you’re not interesting girlfriend.
We are going to recapture your fucking FIRE, and I’ll show you exactly how.

 Module 10: Leader MAGNETISM

Being the most ‘they can’t look away’ person out there, where no matter what you do or how random it is PEOPLE HAVE TO HAVE IT ‘CAUSE IT’S YOU.

Yep, that is an INTENSIVE learning schedule but we did already agree it’s time to quit fucking around. Besides which, this is not about learning. This is about remembering, remembering, remembering, and motherfucking BEING –

All that you were always meant to damn well be.

BELLS AND 6-INCH STILETTOS OR WHATEVER THE FUCK IT IS YOU WANT TO PUT ON, ONNNNNN.

    Do not be so quick to dismiss spot reduction. There has been some research that shows that exercised muscle can reduce subcutaneous fat deposits : http://www.motleyhealth.com/articles/2009/03/is-spot-reduction-of-fat-possible.html
    However, that being said, it is probably easier to focus on removing over all body fat.

    1. Kat says:

      Hi Jon,
      I totally agree that spot reduction exists. If you re-read the article you’ll see that it is commenting on the fact that most people think you can’t spot reduce, and then goes on to explain how it is in fact possible.
      Thanks for your comment!
      Kat

  2. Hey Kat

    Great article! Your an inspiration to the industry and its great to see some high quality trainers in melbourne

    1. Kat says:

      Thanks Tommy! Looking forward to seeing your site build 😉

  3. Ally Kee says:

    When you are trying to lose body fat, the best way to do it is still by proper dieting and exercise. Avoid taking slimming pills at all cost, they do more harm than good.

    1. Kat says:

      You don’t specify what you mean by slimming pills Ally. If you mean synthetic fat burning supps then definitely avoid them as they stimulate cortisol and also increase toxins. But if you’re talking about amino acids, nutrient supps, herbal supps and medical foods then (long story short) most people have no chance of burning significant body fat without them. Maybe 200 years ago when food supplies contained all nutrients, when stress either didn’t exist or it killed you (therefore eliminating the problem), and when environmental toxins and pesticides weren’t an issue. Taking supplements is not natural, but nor is what we’re fighting. And if you don’t fight fire with fire you’re sure as heck gonna get burnt. Try detoxing fat stored from chlorine toxicity without supplements, for example. Or from the contraceptive pill. Or from any number of household toxins. No chance.

  4. You could possibly under no circumstances really know what results come of your action, however if you undertake nothing there will be no end result

  5. Hi!

    Quite interesting. Never heard about this “BioSignature Modulation” thing. Though it all sounds difficult.. Hormonal profile? Is it so important in weight loss?

    Fabs

    1. Kat says:

      Absolutely! Hormones are far more powerful than calories or exercise.
