  1. Book Nook: Fat to Fit in Only 10 Minutes a Day!

    Forner NFL player Dave Hubbard has come up with what he calls a new formula for fitness -- a formula that will transform your body and energize your life.

    And it only takes 10 MINUTES A DAY to see results!

    If we can't find 10 minutes a day for fitness, then we're in deep doo-doo here folks.

    Hubbard, who way back in the '70s played on the offensive line for the New Orleans Saints, developed his fast and effective workout after hurting his back in a skydiving accident.

    For Hubbard, long sessions at the gym were no longer possible. And he soon discovered they were no longer practical for you and me as well.

    Hubbard, who is known as America's Fitness Coach, has made it his mission to educate the world on what works and what doesn't when it comes to exercise and weight loss.

    In this exclusive Diet-to-Go interviw, Hubbard anwers a few insightful questions from me.

    Read through his answers then check out the hot deal that Hubbard has created EXCLUSIVELY for Diet-to-Go fans like you -- it's a 20% discount on Hubbard's home workout system AND a FREE COPY of his book, Fat to Fit.

    7 Questions for America's Fitness Coach

    1. You call it "a new formula for fitness"... what was the old formula and why is this one better?

    The "old" formula consisted of a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise a day, or 45 minutes 2-3 times a week, and predominately consisted of aerobic exercise. My "new" formula consists of exercising for only 10-minutes 5-7 days a week, doing predominantly anaerobic exercise (high intensity strength training).

    It is better because (A) it's much easier to develop and sustain the habit of exercise at only 10 minutes a day, and (B) by doing anaerobic exercise at a very high intensity, you get more lean muscle mass for continuous fat loss, and a stronger heart.

    2. Getting fit in only 10 minutes a day? How can this be?

    My program is based on F.I.T. -- Frequency, Intensity and Time. If you increase the frequency and increase the intensity, you can decrease the time down to as little as 10 minutes a day.

    There are many scientific studies today proving that it works. When I am finished with my 10-minute workout I am wasted! If you were to watch my workout you would be blown away at how exhausting it is in such a short period of time. This is because of the unique use of isometrics combined with isokinetic variable resistance with no rest between sets or exercises.

    3. Why should the reader listen to what Dave Hubbard has to say? In other words, what makes you an expert in this field?

    As an former professional NFL athlete who's life for many years consisted of doing all of the latest cutting-edge exercise to get and stay in the best shape... as a man who then stepped into the REAL world... as just a husband and father who sat behind a desk most of the day and was not motivated to exercise because I felt I had done enough for several lifetimes... well, I have the "street cred" as they say!

    I've been on both sides of the issue -- extremely fit and fat, out of shape and unmotivated. Now here's the kicker. For a guy now in his mid 50's with bad knees and a bad back -- a man who has only worked out for 10 minutes a day for over 20-years -- I'M IN FANTASTIC SHAPE!

    4. What is the single biggest mistake people make when trying to shape up and slim down?

    With "shape up" it's probably doing way too much exercise and then getting frustrated because they come to the realization that they simply can't keep up with it in the routine reality of their life.

    With trying to "slim down" it's jumping into a fad diet, meaning anything that has them eating in such a way that it would be practically impossible to continue for the rest of their life. They eventually get off "the diet" and things begin to go south, which is why the stat has held true now for over 25 years. By one account, 96% of those who go on a diet, within one year's time, put all of the weight back on and more.

    5. Why can't I work out 70 minutes one day and skip the next six rather than 10 minutes each day?

    You could. It actually takes 14 days before muscle starts to atrophy. The downside of that approach is that our bodies are really designed to be stressed more often. When we stress our muscles, bones, heart, lungs, brains, etc., our body reacts in a wonderful way, producing HGH to burn fat, endorphins for euphoric mood enhancement, etc., etc. I have found that I prefer getting all of those benefits daily verses every once in a while.

    6. How does nutrition fit into your healthy equation? And what is the BEST diet -- high protein? low-carb? low-fat? vegetarian?

    I thought you said to keep my answers short! I can tell you my "short" answer, however, it would take a lot of time to explain how I arrived at it.

    My quick response would be as follows (1) eat primarily God-made food, versus man-made, processed manipulated food.

    (2) When eating meat, eat grass-fed, free-range, non-hormoned meat -- and do so sparingly. Only eat red meat once or twice a month.

    (3) Of all the "science" on protein verses carbs, etc., I have found Barry Sears Ph.D., author of The Zone, to be the most balanced approach: 30% lean protein, 30% low glycemic carbs, and 20% healthy fat.

    7. How long will it take for me to see changes and feel better following your plan?

    You will feel changes almost immediately. You'll feel more energy, more flexibility, and a renewed attitude about fitness because you are successfully exercising vigorously every day.

    Seeing changes takes a bit longer and depends on what you're looking to see. If it's weight and inches lost, depending on how much you want to lose, this can take months. And it probably will.

    For example, it took me two and a half years to go from 280 to 235, and from body fat higher than 30% to under 12%, and resting heart rate in the high 70s to 47 beats per minute.

    HOWEVER, since then, now almost 25 years later, I have managed to keep my new body. Most people give up way too soon!
