Mike Geary was formerly a personal trainer and in addition to his fitness accumen, he is a Certified Nutrition Specialist. When he worked as a personal trainer, one of the most common questions he received was about how to lose belly fat. People seemed to be most concerned about finding a way to get those coveted 6 pack abs. He received these questions about abs so frequently that he came to the realization that there was a lot of misinformation and a lack of clarity regarding how fitness and nutrition correlated. He also realized through his work that most people did not understand how their bodies worked and how to combine nutrition and fitness in a dynamic way in order to achieve fantastic fitness results.
This is how “Truth About Abs” came into being. Mike Geary saw a gap in understanding and he wanted to provide illumination for those who were looking for it among the chaos of information. If you want to know who Mike Geary is, you will need to look more closely at his program to see exactly what it is about.
What “Nutritionists” Don’t Tell You
Let’s face it. There is a lot of confusion about nutrition. From each day to the next, we are being told that something is healthy only to discover later that it is precisely the wrong thing to put into one’s body. Because of Mike Geary’s background as a certified nutrition counselor, he has the specific knowledge and training required to speak intelligently about nutrition. Many nutrition counselors will tout the “food pyramid” as the end-all-be-all in nutrition information. Geary provides a better alternative to the “food pyramid” in his program and because of his candor and straight talk, it makes him a target for those who would like to discredit him and his work.
He also takes it upon himself to expose the food industry for what it is. He does not mince words about his feelings about food manufacturers and how they will use deception and outright lies in marketing in order to sell food that tempts the taste buds but provides little or no nourishment to the body.
In contrast to this, he encourages consuming foods that are in their most natural state and prompts his readers to steer clear of processed foods as much as possible. He also sheds light on the many popular fad diets and how and why they don’t work. His nutritional background gives him keen insight into how the body works and why extreme diets are more harmful than helpful.
Working The Whole Body
There are many programs, exercise machines and systems that will target the abdominal muscles, specifically. Geary has the expertise and knowledge that you can’t isolate one area and see results. His program is different because he targets the whole body through exercise but also through nutrition. He also makes it possible for ANYONE to get started. Even if you do not have access to gym or have gym equipment in your home, you are still able to use his program effectively.
He places great emphasis on the fact that you need to exercise the whole body in order to reveal the muscle underneath. He goes into detail about how there is no “magic pill” that will melt away the pounds. He even goes on to say that anyone who does say that is trying to steal your money. He does not make promises that are not contingent on consistent effort and discipline to make it happen.
He also reveals that perfect abs do not come from doing ab exercises. This comes as a shock to most people because conventional wisdom has been to work your ab muscles until the cows come home! Revealing chiseled and well-defined abdominals comes from reducing your overall body fat. This is why it is important to focus on the whole body instead of one muscle system.
Having The Right Attitude
Geary acknowledges that most people yo-yo back and forth their whole lives regarding fitness. He realizes that much of the battle has to do with the right mental attitude. He believes this is so important that he places information about your mental state …
