So, what exactly is the Fat Neutralizing Nutrient? One that helps struggling men and women lose weight at least TWICE as fast… especially when consumed first thing in the morning?
Can you guess?
Believe it or not, it’s protein.
But not just any protein.
A special kind of protein that you can only get from very specific foods, and I’ll be sharing it with you today in this short, information-packed article.
Here’s exactly what I’ll be sharing with you in the moments to come:
- The true power of protein. As you’re about to see, we now know precisely how and why protein helps you reshape your body faster than any other nutrient.
- Precisely how much protein you need to lose weight faster and keep the weight you lose from coming back. Many people I speak to believe they are getting enough protein from the foods they eat. I’ll show you why that is rarely the case…in fact, you probably aren’t getting anywhere near enough protein if your goal is weight loss and a more shapely body. I’ll also reveal how easy it is to get your protein intake up enough to see the fat loss and body-shaping results you desire.
- Why the protein foods you’re likely eating can be doing more harm than good. So many grocery store protein foods are tainted with hormones and pesticides. The animals that most of our protein comes from are often fed diets designed to make them fat rather than healthy… and their lack of health means YOU are at risk.
- The downright criminal practices of many protein supplement manufacturers! Just wait until you hear about the protein supplement scams making headlines today. You may feel a slight rise in your blood pressure when you hear about these shady supplement dealers and the depths they are willing to stoop to in order to take money out of your wallet, all while robbing you of the results you deserve!
- Finally, I’ll reveal my 60-Second Protein Super-Meal… along with over 50 mouthwatering recipes you can use to make your daily Fat Neutralizing Protein Fix absolutely delicious!
First, let’s dive into the latest research on the true power of protein. For decades, athletes, figure models, actors and actresses, and those in the know have used protein-based meal plans to help them get into top shape. And now, science has uncovered why and how it works.
Have a look:
Journal of Nutrition researchers from the University of Illinois found that women consuming a high protein diet had a 66% better ratio of fat to lean body mass compared to the “normal” protein group consuming half as much protein.1 This means the high-protein group lost considerably more fat –including belly fat–and maintained significantly more muscle despite consuming the exact same amount of calories.
Now think about that for a moment:
How did the protein-rich test group have such positive body changes when they were eating the same exact number of calories? Usually in order to lose more body fat, you have to eat FEWER calories, right? Well, these researchers uncovered one of the hidden powers of protein: it can help you burn fat more than any other nutrient. That’s why the test group had lower body fat and more lean muscle, despite consuming the same amount of calories.
In another recent randomized trial, a group of German researchers, led by Dr. Marion Flechtner-Mors, found that folks consuming a high-protein diet lost over 200% as much weight as the standard-protein group.2
So another piece of the puzzle has been revealed: higher protein intakes led to more than TWICE as much weight loss. Again, these results were independent of caloric intake.

Imagine what this means: no more starving yourself on unhealthy low-calorie diets! You can let The Fat Neutralizing Nutrient do the heavy lifting for you.
Now you may be curious:
Exactly how does protein create these mind-blowing improvements in body composition and accelerate weight loss… results no other nutrient on earth can deliver?
It turns out that there are several unique qualities found within protein, assuming you consume enough of it. One of those factors is called the thermic effect of feeding (TEF), or what we refer to as the thermogenic burn.
Have you ever heard the term “fast metabolism?” Have you ever envied those naturally thin folks whose metabolisms hum along like a well-oiled machine? Well, this is fantastic news for you if that’s the kind of metabolism you’ve always wanted. You see, we now know one of the major factors behind creating a speedy fat-burning metabolism… and it’s something that doesn’t necessitate having great genetics.
All you need is more protein.
Thermogenic burn refers to the number of calories required to metabolize nutrients. When you eat carbohydrates, about 15% of the calories you consume are required to metabolize carb nutrients. That means if you eat 100 calories of bread, or fruit, or pasta, your body will use about 15 calories of energy to metabolize the food. Fat is much lower on the thermal burn scale: only 5 calories per 100 are needed to metabolize fat nutrients. That’s why high-fat, high-carb diets are a bad combination that can very easily lead to obesity.
Protein, on the other hand, is on its own metabolic planet! Protein demands up to a staggering 35 calories for every 100 calories ingested to be metabolized! That’s more than DOUBLE the calorie-burning power of carbs, and SEVEN TIMES the power of fat!
To put this in perspective, let’s say you eat 1000 calories of protein one day. Well, it really only “costs you” 650 calories because your body burns 350 calories after eating protein by cranking up your calorie-burning furnace.
This means when you eat protein you get loads of “free calories!” that only help your fat burning efforts!

So now we know the FIRST reason why protein is the Fat Neutralizer: it requires far more calories to metabolize. Talk about the ideal weight loss nutrient!
But the key is the type of protein, and as research further validates, not just any protein will do… not by a long shot. Stay tuned as I’ll be revealing the exact type of protein that you need to consume for maximum results shortly.
The question now is: “How much protein do you NEED each day to achieve all of these mind-blowing benefits?”
Well, athletes figured this out long before medical research was able to verify it. For decades, men and women who depended on keeping lower levels of body fat and more lean muscle would consume at least 1 gram of quality protein per pound of body weight. This works out to be about 35% of your daily caloric intake, the exact percentage validated by a recent breakthrough study published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism.12
But what does that mean in the real world… and how do you apply it to your own weight loss and body shaping goals?
First, let’s get some perspective. We’ll take a 150-pound female as our example. Let’s say her name is Linda.
Linda would have to consume at least 150 grams of protein per day in order to enjoy the benefits demonstrated in the clinical studies we’ve discussed so far. However, Linda is a mother of two, works a full-time job, and enjoys a fairly active social life. She’s probably a lot like you: busy, without a lot of time to prepare protein-rich meals.
In order to get the amount of protein required, eating even high-quality protein foods, Linda would have to chow down on:
- 25 hard-boiled eggs…
- 18 glasses of milk…
- Just over a pound of chicken breast…
- 1.3 pounds of ground beef… OR
- 10 cans of tuna…
… I believe you get the picture!
Obviously, that’s a lot of food… far more food than Linda would probably care to eat.
And even if she COULD eat that much food, the dietary fat and overall calorie content of so much food would make her doctor blush from embarrassment!
We want Linda to lose weight, not die from heart disease or obesity.
It’s even worse for Mark.

Mark is 6 foot tall and weighs 210 pounds. Mark has to consume at least 210 grams of protein per day, which means he’ll be stuffing himself with:
- 35 hard-boiled eggs…
- 25 glasses of milk…
- 1 and 3/4 pounds of chicken breast…
- 1.8 pounds of ground beef… OR
- 14 cans of tuna…
It’s no wonder most people struggle to get 35% of their calories from protein.
One more very important piece to this puzzle is when you should consume your protein…
There are definite advantages to taking protein in after exercise, or mid-day to prevent late afternoon or evening food cravings.
However, research shows that the OPTIMAL time to consume protein… and a lot of it… is first thing in the morning. This is perhaps one of the key factors behind your past weight loss struggles: you were probably getting far too little protein to kickstart your fat-burning metabolism in the morning.
In a recent Tel Aviv University study, participants who consumed a protein shake containing 49 grams of protein first thing in the morning lost 145% more weight than a group consuming a normal amount of protein at breakfast.14
And as fantastic as that sounds, there’s more: BOTH GROUPS ate the exact same number of calories… again! However, the protein breakfast group experienced a much greater thermogenic burn along with significant reductions in the hunger hormone ghrelin. That made all the difference.
Just note the amount consumed: roughly 50 grams. To give you perspective, that would require you to consume NINE EGGS! I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound like a lot of fun. In fact, it sounds extremely unappetizing and nearly impossible for most.
And as mentioned earlier, it’s much more than just “how much protein” you need–it’s the specific type of protein that’s even more important…
- Does the protein source contain the full spectrum of amino acids? Or is it inferior, “incomplete” protein?
- Is it healthy? Or is it loaded with hormones, artificial chemicals, and other toxins that can actually counteract your fat-burning efforts?
- Will it be easily digested and absorbed? Or will it cause you the burden of digestive distress every time you reach for it?
Fact is, most store-bought protein sources fail miserably when asked these questions, leaving them a far cry from ideal when it comes to delivering you the fat-burning results you deserve.
As an example, traditional eggs that are not cage-free are loaded with what I call confinement toxins. These caged chickens are given hormones in captivity that leak into your body through the egg white and yolk – hormones that can wreak total havoc on YOUR hormones. And without your hormonal system working properly, you’ll find it impossible to burn fat.
As you can imagine, these same toxins exist with the actual chickens laying the eggs, leaving that store-bought chicken breast just as problematic as the eggs.
What about fish? While it’s often thought to be one of the healthiest protein sources, many fish are riddled with high levels of mercury and other toxic metals. Simply put, mercury poisons your brain. In fact, many doctors believe that mercury toxicity is one of the main triggers for brain ailments that rob you of your memory.
And as you’ve probably guessed, traditional beef is perhaps the worst of the group as virtually all grocery store beef is GMO grain-fed, instead of grass-fed as nature intended.
When cows are fed these grains, the healthy fatty acids (omega-3s) are thrown out of balance with the more dangerous fatty acids (omega-6s). The proper 3-to-6 ratio is VITAL to your heart health, but unfortunately traditional grain-fed beef is loaded with far too many inflammation-promoting omega-6s with next to no inflammation-scavenging omega-3s.15,16
Lastly, I’d like to briefly cover plant-based proteins like soy and tofu. Soy avoids many of the dangers listed above, but falls woefully short on the amino acid profile needed to match those in the studies we discussed. Also, soy is a known inhibitor of thyroid function.17,18 When your thyroid is suppressed, weight loss is severely compromised.
Knowing all this, you could choose to avoid soy while opting only for 100% organic eggs, chicken, fish and beef, but this can be both inconvenient and downright expensive. And again, the volume of food you’d need to consume of these particular protein sources each day–especially if solely relying on them to achieve the “magic” 1 gram per pound daily intake we went over previously–is impractical and borderline impossible for most.
Now, of course, I do recommend the organic versions of these foods (with the exception of soy) as part of a well-balanced fat-burning diet. That said, it’s important to realize that in order to gain all the benefits that The Fat Neutralizing Nutrient has to offer…
You must adhere to these 3 Fat-burning Protein Commandments:
- You must take in 50 grams of protein first thing in the morning. You’ve seen how challenging that can be using typical protein foods, so we need a better solution…
- You must consume at least 1 gram of protein for every pound of bodyweight. Again, the challenge is the sheer quantity of food you would have to consume. Plus, the time and inconvenience of all that cooking makes this unattractive…
- You must avoid high levels of denatured dietary fat, toxins, hormones, antibiotics, heavy metals, and other pollutants found in most store-bought protein foods. Unfortunately, this is only possible in the context of an extremely expensive all-organic diet.
As you’ve probably surmised by now, the best option for greater weight loss, convenience, ease, and overall health, is to select a high-quality protein shake in the form of an easy-to-mix powder.
But here’s something you may not know…
The vast majority of protein supplements on the market are full of extremely cheap, denatured protein and a host of other toxic ingredients that can actually SLOW your progress instead of speeding it along…
Even worse, the protein industry is riddled with scams – shady practices that you will be downright shocked to learn as they are literally criminal…
Fact is, if you are currently taking a protein supplement, or even if you’re thinking about using one–which you should be as it is the only true, practical solution to achieving an optimal fat-burning protein intake–you’re going to want to pay very close attention to everything I’m about to share.
First, let’s talk about whey protein. Chances are great that if you’ve consumed a protein shake in the past, you’ve consumed whey protein. However, most whey protein has a “dark side” that isn’t nearly as popular for whey-only product manufacturers and retailers to talk about.
Whey, when taken alone, is difficult to absorb. A review on the rate of protein absorption published in 2006 in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism reported that whey protein isolate absorbs at a rate of about 8 – 10 grams per hour.19 What this means is for every 40 grams of whey ingested, you are likely to excrete over half, since whey has a “narrow” digestion window of only 90 minutes.20
Second, whey alone spikes your insulin levels, which is devastating to weight loss and your overall health. A 2004 study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition identified that the specific amino acids in whey protein stimulate the body to secrete more insulin than a similar amount of carbohydrates from white bread.21
Finally, the VAST majority of whey protein, even if combined with other proteins for greater absorption and lower insulin spikes, comes from GMO grain-fed cattle. That’s just not something I can recommend in good conscious, as your heart health is too important.
Another protein option is soy, or plant-based protein powders. Soy is problematic for several reasons, but first and foremost is the fact that it interferes with thyroid production as we’ve already covered.
When you add in the fact that 94% of soy grown in the United States is from GMO, or Genetically Modified Organisms, you can be looking at a health disaster. GMOs are VERY bad news for a host of reasons I’ll cover shortly.22
So let’s say you find a protein blend of whey and the slower acting milk protein, casein. That’s a good start… just beware of the synthetic growth hormones, rBGH and rBST, found in most commercially farmed cows.
Ranchers and farmers often feed their cattle these Frankenstein hormones to increase their weight and milk production. Unfortunately, when humans ingest rBGH and rBST from cattle, they can disrupt their own endocrine system and natural growth hormone output. This can lead to premature aging, greater fat storage, and mood disruptions.
Now, if you’re wondering if a particular protein product is rBGH- and rBST-free, here’s a simple way to know:
If the label doesn’t say rBGH-and rBST-free, it’s NOT!
Other proteins have tons of hidden sugars or artificial sweeteners. Often times manufacturers will hide what is essentially pure table sugar with names like dextrose, sucrose, and maltodextrin, among many others. These sugars spike insulin and blood sugar, and prime your body to store excess fat.
And the dangers of artificial sweeteners? That would take an entire video to cover in detail, but I’ll just put it to you this way: if you value your health, avoid them like the plague. Research has connected multiple artificial sweeteners to the reduction of the body’s master antioxidant, glutathione, which is incredibly critical to your overall health.23 In fact, certain artificial sweeteners can even kill off the healthy probiotics in your gut, leading to a host of digestive, immune and cognitive issues.24,25
Let’s get back to GMOs for a moment: genetically modified organisms, something you have probably heard a lot about in the media lately. Now, hang on to your hat, because these deadly genetically altered seeds are now found in up to 80% of ALL processed foods in America today. That means you’ve probably eaten food today that contained multiple GMOs, and you didn’t even know it. And believe me, GMOs are extremely common in most protein powders.
Now, before I give you the ideal solution to all of these problems, along with the exact meal plan I recommend for consistent, enjoyable and FAST weight loss…
I must tell you about something criminal!
Something that’s currently under investigation by the government via a class action lawsuit.
It’s called nitrogen spiking. And unfortunately, it’s an all-too-common, extremely deceptive practice in the protein supplement industry. Independent testing with multiple brand-name proteins revealed that many protein supplements are using added ingredients to spike their protein test results when in fact the actual amount of protein contained in the product is far less than advertised. This means a protein powder label may say it contains 20 grams of protein, but it really only contains 10 grams! In the end, the manufacturer laughs all the way to the bank as they rob you of both your money and your results.
Another huge scam in the supplement industry is so-called time-released proteins. While a TRUE time-released protein is an absolute godsend to increase absorption and stave off hunger for hours, many protein supplements will simply add the more expensive, slower-acting proteins in micro amounts as “window dressing”. This label loophole allows them to make an exotic time-released claim when in reality it’s just a tub of cheap protein… and of course that will not serve you in the least.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, we have to talk about taste. I can tell you first-hand as a protein connoisseur, it is RARE to find a protein formulation that tastes great… even if it’s loaded with sugar! They usually taste like chalk, or something your doctor makes you drink before surgery. Terrible!
If there’s one FACT about weight loss you can take to the bank, it’s this: if it doesn’t taste good, you’ll never stick to it. That’s why you absolutely MUST DEMAND a protein supplement that bypasses all the problems I just covered, while still tasting like a delicious desert you love and crave.
Fortunately for you, I was determined to find a solution. One with second-to-none quality, taste, digestibility and absorption, and totally free from any of these toxins or inferior proteins.
And as they say, if you want something done right… do it yourself!
You see, in addition to being a nationally published nutrition author and fitness personality, I’m also the co-founder of America’s leading premium supplement company, BioTrust Nutrition. And as such, I had our very own elite protein powder developed with the help of our amazing team of world class dietitians and medical doctors.
The end result? BioTrust® Low Carb
…a true, honest, and delicious premium blend of exotic proteins that solves ALL of the previously mentioned problems, and then some.
For starters, it’s the best-tasting protein on the planet, period. If you’re going to be drinking protein “milkshakes” daily, you want to make sure you’re using a brand that you truly enjoy and look forward to.
A study by Tel Aviv University, showed participants who consumed a protein shake containing 49 grams of protein first thing in the morning lost 145% more weight than a group consuming a normal amount of protein at breakfast. PHOTO/PEXELS
This stuff is like dessert… literally.
Beyond that, I want you to really rest easy, because BioTrust Low Carb is gluten-free, soy-free, and made with natural ingredients. That means it contains no artificial additives, colors, flavors, preservatives, or sweeteners… at all. Instead, it’s naturally sweetened with all-natural stevia extract and a naturally sweet form of fiber called inulin that adds a sizable 4 grams of fiber per 24 grams of protein.
BioTrust Low Carb is Certified Hormone-Free, sourced from cows not treated with dangerous growth hormones like rBGH and rBST (not the case for the vast majority of all other protein products).
On top of that, it’s a true time-released blend of 4 different fast- and slow-acting proteins that provide your body with quality nutrition for up to 8 hours, without the insulin-spike associated with whey-protein-only products.
In fact, we transparently SHOW you on the label that our time-released protein blend is a true, equal-parts blend of four of the highest quality fast- and slow-acting milk proteins, including exotic Micellar Casein, the cream of the crop of all proteins.
And of course there is NO SOY in our formulation, or any other subpar source of protein. And you’ll be thrilled to know that there are absolutely NO GMOs in BioTrust Low Carb.
Sure, it costs us a LOT more to produce BioTrust Low Carb than these other low-quality, imposter products (including many of the popular brands that you see online and at your local vitamin or grocery store), but we’d rather deliver to you a true, honest protein blend that WORKS than to deceptively pad our profit margins at the expense of loyal customers like you.
Lastly, and perhaps one of the coolest aspects of BioTrust Low Carb, is its use of a new breakthrough natural enzyme blend called ProHydrolase® that has been shown to more than DOUBLE protein absorption over other products.
Beyond that, ProHydrolase completely eliminates the bloating and gas that many complain of with whey protein supplements. Instead, BioTrust Low Carb is about as easy on your GI tract as a glass of water!
And lastly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention once again that it tastes absolutely amazing! In fact, BioTrust Low Carb has been rated as the #1 protein for taste and quality by Fitness Professionals World-Wide, and we literally have thousands of rave reviews from customers just like you!
And finally, unlike other potentially “contaminated” protein powders, BioTrust Low-Carb is manufactured in an FDA-registered facility for optimum purity and potency.
The facility is also certified by the National Nutritional Food Association’s (NNFA) Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) to ensure its quality. We also use an independent, FDA-registered laboratory to make sure that each container of BioTrust Low-Carb contains exactly what is stated on the label and that it’s free from harmful byproducts and contaminants.
All of these practices are extremely rare in the supplement industry—in fact, they are almost nonexistent—as they all substantially drive up costs and decrease margin, but once again, at BioTrust we feel that furnishing you with an honest, pure, and potent product that works and meets label claims is by far the most important part of helping you get the results you deserve.
Even better, here’s the exact plan you’ll use along with fat-burning BioTrust Low Carb protein to really accelerate your weight loss results, starting today:
- First, replace your breakfast with a tasty BioTrust Low Carb protein shake by itself or use BioTrust Low Carb protein in one of the 53 DELICIOUS Protein Milkshake recipes I’m going to give to you for FREE. You’ll always have a fresh new morning milkshake waiting for you… and you can whip it up in less than 60 seconds!
Once you do that, your body is SUPER PRIMED for fat-burning ALL DAY, thanks to the power of The Fat Neutralizing Nutrient going to work first-thing. Remember the University study that showed participants consuming a protein shake containing roughly 50 grams of protein first thing in the morning lost 145% more weight than those consuming a more normal amount of protein? Well, this is how you make those results YOUR reality while having dessert for breakfast to boot! I’m talking about recipe flavors like Cinnamon Roll Supreme, Peanut Butter Cup, Strawberry Cheesecake, and many, many others…
Your energy will skyrocket as well, serving you right when you need it the most. You’ll feel slimmer and lighter, almost immediately, because now you’ll be digesting virtually every gram of fat-burning protein you take in.
- Later on, have a sensible lunch. The lean protein of your choice, healthy starches like yams or brown rice, and all the veggies you desire. Feel free to use real butter on those veggies as well. Your body needs healthy fats to burn fat.
- Then I suggest having another fat-burning BioTrust Low Carb milkshake mid-afternoon. This will really curb your appetite, making it so much easier to enjoy a modest dinner. Feel free to dine out if you wish…now YOU are in control! Temptations will seem so much easier to avoid with the power of protein working in your corner.
