My blog titled, The No. 1 FREE Hack to Increase the Human Growth Hormone for Better Health, you learned that Fasting is the best way to increase your HGH. It’s better than injections.
Today let’s go over the No. 2 best way to increase the HGH and when combined, you have a powerful activator of one of the best health hormones in your body.
From Bulletproof’s blog we learn;
Resistance training develops your brain, detoxes your body, and builds your physique
As the name suggests, resistance training puts your muscles up against a force that resists movement – think weightlifting, kettlebell training, and bodyweight workouts. Resistance training is typically brief and intense, driving your muscles to generate force from ATP stores instead of relying on oxygen.

I’ll bet you’ve tried the “Eat less. Move more.” diet at least once. Right? It probably failed too. For most, it starts out okay. You’ll drop some pounds but then, over time, your food cravings are almost unbearable and the thought of doing one more stair routine, spin class or body pump class makes you angry. After all, everyone says it will work. All the hot after photos of these thin women or men with abs shows that it works.
“But wait, Michael!” you’re yelling at me. It seems to make sense. Eat less and burn more calories than you’re putting in your body and you have to lose weight. Everyone says
The word autophagy, coined by Nobel Prize– winning scientist Christian de Duve, derives from the Greek auto (“ self”) and phagein (“ to eat”). So the word literally means “to eat oneself.” Autophagy is a form of cellular cleansing: it is a regulated, orderly process of breaking down and recycling cellular components when there’s no longer enough energy to sustain them. Once all the diseased or broken-down cellular parts have been cleansed, the body can start the process of renewal. New tissues and cells are built to replace those that were destroyed. In this way, the body renews itself. But it only works if the old parts are discarded first. (1)

To improve weight loss do these four things:
- High-intensity interval training
- Sleep more
- Limit your carbohydrates to 20 g or less per day + all the vegetables you’d like to eat
- Intermittent fast and eat only once per day
According to a Canadian study consuming caffeine can accelerate fat burning by acting as a ketogenic agent. The study found that ingesting 2.5 mg of caffeine per kilogram (1.14 mg per pound) of body weight increase ketone bodies by 88%. By ingesting twice the amount, or 5.0 mg/kg (2.27 mg/pound), can increase ketone bodies by 116%.
The Study’s Abstract
Brain glucose uptake declines during aging and is significantly impaired in Alzheimer’s disease. Ketones are the main alternative brain fuel to glucose so they represent a potential approach to compensate for the brain glucose reduction. Caffeine is of interest as a potential ketogenic agent owing to its actions on lipolysis/ lipid oxidation but whether it is ketogenic in humans is unknown. This study aimed to evaluate the acute ketogenic effect of two doses of caffeine in healthy adults (2.5; 5.0 mg/kg) during a 4-hour metabolic study period. Caffeine given at breakfast significantly stimulated ketone production in a dose dependent manner (+88%; +116%) and also raised plasma free fatty acids. Whether caffeine has longterm ketogenic effects or could enhance the ketogenic effect of medium chain triglycerides remains to be determined.

Why is this important?
The brain is dependent on glucose and can not use free fatty acids (FFA) for fuel like other organs and muscles. Thus, in the absence of glucose, the brain can only use
