5 minute trick to losing fat (hint: involves chocolate)

Guest Post: Maureen Garry

Let’s talk FAT.

Better yet, let’s talk about LOSING fat – that extra padding that crept onto your belly, hips and thighs while you weren’t looking.

But first, let me ask you something: Have you found that losing fat after age 40 is a lot harder than it used to be in your younger years?

ME TOO! In fact, I just about gave up and resigned myself to living with the soft backside and lumpy thighs of a typical 50+ year old woman, until I found the secret to losing fat after age 40.

You see, after age 40 you’re heading into perimenopause, with sex hormones as wacky as an adolescent’s. I learned that if you don’t manage your diet and exercise to account for these changes, taking off any extra weight can seem almost IMPOSSIBLE.

But there’s good news! It’s not difficult to make your body burn extra fat after 40 if you know what to do. You can balance your hormones and lose weight easily with the RIGHT kinds of foods and exercise.

WAIT! Before you roll your eyes and think I’m going to say eat more broccoli and chicken breasts, take a look at this delicious fat-burning, hormone-balancing shake. This sweet treat is perfect in the afternoon when you’re looking for an energy boost, but also makes a great high-energy start to any over-40 fat-burning day.

DON’T be afraid of the fat in this recipe. It’s part of the secret to losing fat on your body! 

Hi-Protein Chocolate Avocado Cream Shake

1 cup water

2 tbsp chia seeds

1/3 of a ripe avocado

1 scoop of chocolate protein powder

1-2 handful(s) of fresh or frozen spinach (relax, you won’t even taste it!)

1 -2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder


Stevia to taste (optional)


Add water to blender; sprinkle chia seeds on top. Add remaining ingredients and blend it all together on high, adding extra water as desired, until light and fluffy. Delicious!

You can use recipes like this to get a flat belly at any age. You don’t need fancy foods, supplements or special proprietary ingredients. You can eat the same foods you feed your family and keep all your social engagements; you just need to have a smart strategy.

Get the lean and sexy body you want, even over 40.  I can help you do that with my new program Flat Belly Breakthrough.
