It may be the most harmless activity known to man, but it’s also one of the biggest dangers to your health.
And right now, we’re doing it WAAAAY more than usual:
Even if you’re an active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
If you have tight hip flexors from sitting too much… you may be kicking your body into fat storing mode and it has nothing to do with inactivity.
Sitting Is a Fat Loss Inhibitor
As the body’s “fight or flight” muscle, your psoas (hip flexors) is deeply connected to our natural survival instinct.
It instantly tightens in moments of danger to either protect you (in a fetal position) or help you run, fueled by the release of adrenaline.
However, if your psoas (hip flexors) is constantly tight from sitting too much, it signals to the body you are in constant danger, leading to overworking of the adrenal gland.
When this happens, your immune system suffers and your body automatically switches into fat storing mode in anticipation of danger.
Can’t shift that weight?
Blame those tight hip flexors known as your “survival muscle”.

Until my mid 30s I hardly exercised at all. Now I wish I’d started sooner.
A quick 30 mins workout in the morning gets my blood pumping, my muscles primed, and my brain firing on all cylinders ready for the day ahead.
Exercise doesnt have to mean dreary hours on a treadmill or risking back strain doing bench presses. It can be smashing tennis balls against a wall, dancing to your favorite music, or going for a bike ride.
However you do it, the key to sticking to an exercise routine is staying MOTIVATED!
To help you stay focused and achieving your exercise goal, I’ve created a report with 30 days of motivational advice.
Why am I sharing these with you?
To prove a point…
… that adopting the keto lifestyle isn’t just about swapping pasta and pizza for eggs and avocado. It’s also about getting more exercise, so you can take better care of your brain and body.
The advice in my 30 Days of Workout Motivation guide may be just what you need to keep your blood pumping, your hormones in balance, and ensuring you maximize your fat burn in every workout.
I wouldn’t be doing my job as a natural health researcher unless I discussed something I bet you hoped I’d never mention – EXERCISE!
I know lots of so called diet gurus claim you can lose weight without leaving your sofa…
And that your body can burn all the fat on its own…by magic!
But this is simply not true.
The fact is that losing weight is a complex biological process. And there are two hormones that stop it happening: Cortisol & Insulin.
When these are running amok in your body, it makes it harder for stored fat to be released from your cells.
If anything, these hormones cause even more fat to get clogged up around your belly, upper arms, and thighs. Then you’ll never reach your weight loss goals no matter how many eggs and avocados you eat.
So to make things easier for you, I’ve created a simple guide on “cyclical keto dieting”.
In this guide you’ll find out how to switch your body between carbs and ketones for fuel. By following its advice, you can maximize your energy levels when working out or just have more energy for higher all day productivity.
