For men & women who want to lose stubborn belly fat but struggle with the so-called expert advice of eating less & exercising more.
There’s a “Hidden Hunger Hormone” In Your Body You’ve Never Heard Of That Can Make It Nearly Impossible to Lose Belly Fat…
Revealed! The proven 3-point method used by pro trainer to tame this hormone, melt away ugly body fat and make you healthier and stronger without giving up the foods you love… in just 15 minutes a day.
There’s a danger lurking in the shadows.
You can’t see it. You can’t touch it. But you can feel it.
It’s there when you wake. It’s there when you lay your head down at night.
If you workout with weights, or run, or do any kind of activity, it’s always with you.
It can undo all your hard work in the gym and leave you feeling empty and depressed.
It doesn’t care how old or young you are. It pays no attention to how experienced or novice you are. It can hit you at any time.
What is this hidden danger that threatens to stop you in your tracks?
This enemy goes by one name:
Hunger destroys motivation. It tears up your plans to get the physique you want. And it sucks every drop of willpower from your body, leading you back to food.
But there is a way to transform your body’s reaction to hunger.
You can switch your body to burn more fat, look more muscular and leaner than you could ever imagine.
I’ll explain how in a few moments but first let me introduce myself…
My name is Mike Westerdal, founder of the internet’s longest-standing health & strength site criticalbench.com. I’m also a national best-selling fitness author, sports nutrition specialist and personal trainer.
Although I’m at the top of my game, it wasn’t always like this.
For too long I struggled with the constant desire for food before, after and even during workouts.
When you’re active, you fight the battle with hunger every waking moment.
I thought controlling my hunger – and my weight – was a question of willpower. I just needed to tell my mind to “suck it up, buttercup”, right?
But it wasn’t until I met a trainer called Ryan Faehnle who told me…
“If you think fighting off hunger is a question of willpower, think again…”
Coach Ryan told me no-one trying to lose fat needs to be battling with hunger.
If hunger takes over, your brain goes into survival mode. Your “need” to binge on food is a natural response by your brain.
And it’s all down to one “hidden” hormone in your body you’ve never heard of.
In leaner times, it played a role in helping us survive… but modern living has let it off the leash with shocking consequences.
So, you see, it isn’t your fault.
To explain, here’s pro-trainer Ryan Faehnle – AKA “The Ghrelin Guy” (as he’ll explain).
HEY, COACH RYAN HERE.
Before I explain about the “hunger hormone” Mike mentioned, you may want to know a little more about me.
As a strength & conditioning specialist (CSCS) I’ve trained athletes in 21 different sports at levels from high school to professional. I’ve coached NFL Super Bowl Champions as well as ordinary girls and guys who want to see better results.
As an NCAA Division I Strength and Conditioning Coach, I was responsible for the performance of hundreds of athletes competing at the highest level.
I have traveled the globe lecturing trainers and coaches on strength, conditioning and body composition.
And during this time, I’ve coached private clients. I built my reputation on results.
Looking at me, you may think this whole fitness and health thing comes naturally. Nothing could be further from the truth.
I wasn’t always the lean guy I am today. I grew up in a family that LOVED food.
My mom showed her love for us through food from an early age. Sugar, soda, you name it.
Food plays a part stimulating the pleasure centers of the brain. When we eat it releases dopamine and serotonin. And, man, did I eat.
If you’re anything like me, you know what it’s like getting trapped
in the yo-yo weight cycle.
I spent years attempting to lose the weight and once I did struggling to keep it off, with NO success.
It took me five years to get the balance right. It all clicked into place once I discovered the impact of the “hidden” hormone. But now I understood how the body works…
I can now eat pretty much what I want AND stay lean. No problem.
And when you understand what I’m about to tell you, so can YOU.
Unlike so many “keyboard warriors”, my reputation is forged from experience and RESULTS.
Look, I work with the best. When they need a result, they don’t accept excuses. That’s why I only use methods that work.
I’ve spent years studying and researching nutrition, fat loss and body composition. And discovering how they impact athletic performance.
I’ve used everything I learned to develop an approach with stunning results, including:
The 200-lb college sports star who dropped 30lbs of body fat… with ONE TINY TWEAK to his daily meal plan.
An NFL player with the body of Spartan Warrior… who ate pizza EVERY SINGLE DAY.
A 50-year-old lady finally lost her troublesome body fat… by EATING JELLY BEANS.
Ok, some of these sound crazy, but I’ll explain in a moment how I used my proven 3-step method to change their future.
But first let me reveal to you…
For the athletes I work with one of their biggest challenge was losing fat and maintaining weight.
With the higher levels of activity comes a need for more fuel, in the form of food. However, getting the balance right to eat the right amount for recovery was difficult.
For clients, this is always an issue. Too restrictive a diet and hunger threatens to wreck all their hard work in the gym.
To understand what was going on, four years ago I started to study the effect of hormones on the human body.
That’s when I discovered the “hunger hormone”
no-one knows about.
Hunger is the single biggest threat to achieving an ideal physique… and its cheerleader is a little-known hormone called ghrelin
Your body doesn’t like change. It likes to stay the same. When we try to make changes, like losing or gaining weight, the body responds with various mechanisms to bring stability back.
One of these mechanisms is appetite.
If your body senses it is losing weight your appetite hormones kick in to regulate this. There are two appetite hormones: leptin, which inhibits hunger and its difficult twin, ghrelin which does the opposite – INCREASES hunger.
Ghrelin has a clear mission: to tell your body to eat.
And it doesn’t care how loud it shouts.
Ghrelin is found in the lining of the stomach and reacts to how well you’ve eaten. If your stomach is empty, ghrelin is produced.
But when your body secretes too much ghrelin, all hell breaks loose.
What causes your body to go into ghrelin meltdown?
Ghrelin is at its highest before eating and its lowest after a meal.
If you’re on a diet or program that severely restricts calories, you’ll feel the effects of ghrelin as the hunger grips you.
The more restrictive your diet,
the more ghrelin secreted.
And with all those signals firing to your brain to “EAT, EAT, EAT” it’s no surprise when you succumb to the urge to guzzle food and end up over-eating.
In this “hunger state” ghrelin sends the body into survival shut down and promotes fat storage . It forces the body to hold onto its fat reserves.
Now, it’s possible to see how ghrelin causes you to work against your body when you’re trying to eliminate body fat.
What complicates it further is ghrelin levels can be affected by factors other than food. The amount of sleep you have, for instance, can also impact on your ghrelin levels.
Here’s the thing about ghrelin.
It can be your best friend… or your worst enemy.
Ghrelin in itself isn’t bad. From a survival standpoint, ghrelin is there to guide our body.
Understanding hunger and what causes the release of ghrelin is key to promoting and maintaining fat loss. But ghrelin needs to be treated with kid gloves.
Hunger can melt away willpower and disrupt your attempt to shed body fat.
The problem is worsened when we add exercise because it often just makes us hungrier later on.
When it comes to lowering ghrelin levels
many experts suggest the following:
You see we spend more hours sitting than our bodies were ever designed to do. And it’s destroying our muscles, posture and wellbeing.
Sitting for prolonged periods increases risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and death.
One international study said the risk could be reduced by doing 1 hour of physical activity every day. But who seriously has time?
It is said you can’t out-train a bad diet, the same is true of your lifestyle.
Spending hours sitting at a desk has long-term effects built up over time.
Your muscles shorten and tighten up while your
Most strength and conditioning programs I’ve seen start with a dynamic stretching routine that takes 15-minutes, followed by a 15-minute mobility circuit. You’ve been exercising for a full 30-minutes before you’ve even officially started the “workout”.
The reason coaches design workouts this way is because it actually takes your body that long to wake up, establish the mind-body connection and make sure your muscles are fully activated and prepared to workout at full capacity and avoid injury.
I don’t know about you, but most of my clients want to have their workout completed by 30-minutes, not just finishing up their warm-up!
So how do you take the fight to a sedentary lifestyle and bring your muscles back to life so they’re PRIMED for their workout and firing at 100 percent and ready to go? Is there a way to go from 1st gear to 5th gear so you can get more accomplished faster?
I stumbled across the answer when working in the field of rehabilitation…
How to “steal” the secrets of physical therapists to prime your muscles and make every rep count
It’s shocking to hear this but I’m going to say it anyway:
The damage you’re doing to your body leaves your body in a similar state to someone who has been seriously injured.
No-one dresses it up this way, but it’s true.
Our bodies have been ravaged by inactivity. They weren’t built to do so little.
Inactivity has switched our muscles off.
And now we need a way to switch them back on again, so they work as they’re supposed to when we perform resistance exercises.
By seeing our sedentary lifestyle this way, it made me turn to my understanding of rehabilitation and the work of physical therapists in returning injured athletes to full activity.
These practitioners use a series of “activation” exercises to get their injured individuals ready to move.
Physical therapists take injured patients through a series of techniques designed to restore function and strengthen muscles again.
The good news is you don’t need to become a trained physical therapist to learn how to “activate” your muscles in preparation for training.
I’ve now been using this process with my pro athlete clients and regular clients to dramatically improve workout performance. Through developing best practice, I have a toolbox of highly effective techniques which promote flexibility, strength, greater movement and optimal output in minimal time.
I call this method Fat Loss Activation.
There are some important additional benefits to using muscle activation moves which also help promote fat loss, including increasing blood flow to muscle tissue to increase lipolysis, which burns fat.
Hold tight though, there’s one final piece of this puzzle.
There’s a good reason why you may have been unsuccessful at controlling your hunger, dropping body fat and getting ripped… and it’s down to the way most fat loss programs are designed.
So let me explain…
Most fat loss programs suffer from three problems:
1) they’re too complicated.
2) they take too much time, and.
3) they try to change ingrained habits.
I noticed an interesting trend working with college athletes. At the end of term, half of my athletes would go home to their family, while the other half stayed on campus.
When they returned it was clear the athletes who went home were often unable to follow the programs.
If you’re working 1-on-1, you can make a plan as complicated as needed. But when you go home and do it yourself, it’s a different story.
An at-home program needs to be SIMPLE.
Even if you’re an athlete.
Likewise, if these daily plans take too long, few will follow them.
The final reason most fat loss programs don’t work is because of habits.
Most programs tell you to change some part of your behavior. Often overnight.
You’re commanded to go from eating one thing every day to not eating it at all.
For most programs to work, YOU need to stop and leave behind all your bad habits that got you there in the first place.
But here’s the problem: if changing your habits was so easy to do, we’d ALL change our habits in a moment.
It’s why other programs you may have tried haven’t worked…
They stick by the “Breaking Your Habit” Myth
If you’re trying to change bad habits you’ve had for years, you’re going to lose the battle.
Have you started off a program with the best intentions only to see it slip away after a few days?
You feel bad. And people will tell you to suck it up and deal with it.
But you’re going against habit.
That’s why working with existing habits is the ONLY
way to achieve permanent change.
Once you acknowledge old habits die hard, you’re forced to work in alignment with them.
It’s about removing resistance.
Work in harmony with your existing behavior and meals are simpler, activity becomes easier and, in turn, shifting stubborn, ugly body fat becomes so much easier.
Using this understanding let me explain…
See now how restriction works against your habits.
That’s why I want to empower you to
eat what YOU want.
If eating even less and exercising more isn’t working
now, what makes you think more of the same
will make a difference?
Now you start to see how these three factors work together to make it near impossible for you to rid your frame of fat.
Conflicting advice, a lifestyle centered on poor posture and inactivity and a hormone that rears its head so often if feels like it’s controlling you, rather than the other way around.
However, there is another way. It’s just doctors, the diet industry and trainers simply don’t have the tools or the expertise to point in another direction.
For them, it’s more of the same.
More restrictive diets.
More, more, more. And what it really needs to be is more focused.
When you recognize that habits can’t be changed so easily, you change how to approach the problem.
When you acknowledge the problems caused by sitting down for most of the day, you can work around it.
When you discover how long hunger has controlled your feelings and behavior, you realize you have the power to change your future.
The only way to fix this problem is by tackling each problem in turn.
Whether I’m working with professional athletes or gym newbies, this approach is the same. It needs to hit all the areas in the right way to ensure progress
Here’s my 3-part methodology for sustainable fat-loss:
These are the exact strategies and programs honed over years of working with professional and collegiate athletes, teaching sports professionals.
They’re the very same techniques I use with my personal training clients for rapid, effective results.
Now – for the first time ever – I’ve opened up my playbook for fat loss and peak athletic performance.

Fat Loss Activation Supplement Stacks
My guess is you’ve seen your fair share of supplements claiming to “fix” your physique or burn fat.
If most of these supplements did what they said, you probably wouldn’t be reading this.
While most supplements do little, there are some I have used for myself, athletes and clients. I only recommend and stand by products I have personally tried and tested.
Using supplements is completely optional. You’ll still get great results without. But building a supplement stack into your program can help fill any gaps and cut the time to your ideal body.
In this bonus, I share my favorite supplements stacks designed around outcomes.
Here’s what you get:
The FLA Life Awesomeness Stack. Seriously, this is the MOST important stack designed to optimize all the nutrients in your body to help change your body composition.
For the first time, the strategies only available to
pro-athletes are now available to YOU!
I’m going to let you into a little secret. When I started out, I thought these collegiate athletes were going to be freak athletes.
Most of them are like you and me. Like baby giraffes on ice skates, great at their sport but not gifted at all.
I had to train them to drop fat, stay lean and strong, just like I had to train someone who had never trained before.
It’s all about mastering the basics. If you don’t master the basics, you’ll never get where you want to be. Professional athletes still work on the basics.
Everyone wants to get all fancy. Most programs out there try to be too fancy. And they don’t work because they don’t touch on the basics.
I show you how to do master the basics. When you get a grip on these, you can multiply the effectiveness of your workout many times.
Sure, you still need to put the work in. But every second you spend working out will count. Every bead of sweat you exert moves you towards feeling stronger and saying goodbye to ugly body fat.
Leave the Tupperware at home. Life-changing results don’t need long, complicated workouts and boring food choices
Look, I’m not going to sugar coat this. You’re a grown-up.
If you’re trying something promising rapid results for little effort, it won’t work.
Losing body fat does takes effort. You have to work at it.
But you have a choice:
Work at it against your body, against your hormones and waste your workouts…
Make sure every ounce of effort means something.
Give me 10-15 minutes a day and follow my simple plan and I’ll stick with this with you. And you will see results.
I won’t do that to you. I’m not going to let you down, here.
I know what you’re saying right now…
“But Ryan, I’ve tried EVERYTHING
how do I know this will work?”
Look, you may have tried everything.
You haven’t tried it my way.
I get that you’ve probably seen it all.
All the claims and promises of rapid weight loss and a quick fix to the body you always wanted.
So many trainers and experts lay it on thick to sell their program and make a fast buck. I understand why you’d be reluctant to place your trust in anyone.
But here’s the difference. Fat Loss Activation is a program I’ve developed and used on everyone from professional athletes to grandmothers. It’s not based on theory and hope. Everything element of the program is designed around what I know works in the field, supported by scientific research.
Your skepticism is understandable.
That’s why I’m going to make you an offer so irresistible to grab this offer and get the results you want.
I never want to see guys and girls like you struggling again, so I’m practically giving it away…
To work with me one-to-one would cost you $350 per hour or $1,000 for a full day.
Even at these rates, it’s a great value as I ALWAYS achieve results for my clients and athletes.
If I was launching the program to other health professionals complete with my methodology for controlling your hormones and activating your muscles for optimal strength and fat loss, I could charge several hundred dollars.
In fact, some coach buddies insist I pull this program to sell to coaches and trainers who want “in” on my secrets.
But that doesn’t motivate me… I’m in this for the long haul and I want to make a difference to you and to our future.
As you have seen each component of the Fat Loss Activation program has a value. The cost of all the elements combined is $191.
At that price it would be a steal compared with the cost of continuing along the route you’re on… but I’m not offering it for this price.
I’m not even offering this for half. Or even a quarter of the price.
Yes, a tiny investment of $10 for access to my playbook on fat loss for a lean, sculpted body.
I want as many people to get their hands on this as possible.
I want them to think of Coach Ryan when they’re looking in the mirror and smiling back at the results.
But please hurry – this is an introductory price to launch the program.
I don’t know how much longer it will be available at this low, low price, so please grab it while you can.
