Drum roll please… introducing… Vince Del Monte (formerly known as Skinny Vinny)!
Vince is also doing something that pretty much NO ONE else is doing… he’s letting YOU into his world and follow him around while he’s living his fitness lifestyle. Can we say reality tv? But “reality tv” that’s actually good for you! You don’t have to worry about losing brain cells and losing IQ points while watching soon-to-be-daddy Vincent Del Monte… speaking of which, he’s talking about supplements to take while being a dad on his newest episode of LiveLargeTV.com
P.S. He’s not a guido like you see on Jersey Shore… (^_^)
Hiya! Yoon here…
Remember to consult with your doctor before doing any physical activities!
My older sister is having a girl June 7. Her baby bump is definitely growing and she’s definitely glowing! She’s also been doing her pilates so she’s actually still quite slim! The only way for anyone to know she was pregnant is by seeing her belly (and how much she eats probably LOL… shhh! Don’t ever tell my sister I wrote that publicly!) so pilates is pretty good for keeping fit during pregnancy.
Now what about weight training for pregnant women? This is where we look to Flavia Del Monte for her expert advice. She knows weight training and she’s pregnant too… w00t!
Happy First Trimester Flavia (& Vince)! (well, they’re actually 19 weeks pregnant now so well into the 2nd trimester…. another w00t! goes here.)
Some things to think about before doing your first trimester exercises:
1. Monitor your heart rate
2. Drink water and don’t do high intensity workouts, don’t be trying to sweat.
3. Don’t lift really heavy weights
4. Not a good idea to be jumping around.
5. If it doesn’t feel right. DON’T Do It
6. Never start anything new. If you didn’t workout before, it’s not a great idea to start now. Walking outdoors is something you can do that’s healthy for you and the baby.
7. Don’t forget to eat (^_^)
Now here’s Flavia’s 1st Trimester Workout consisting of 3 Circuits of 9 exercises total: Do each exercise 8-10 times with 40-60 seconds rest in-between each exercise.
EX: So for Circuit 1 you would do 10 squats, rest 1 minute, do 10 step-ups on the left leg, [rest here if you need to] rest, and then 10 on the right, rest, do 10 lunges on the left leg, [rest if you need to] , 10 right leg lunges, rest, left side leg raise x 10, rest, 10 leg raises on the right, rest. And then repeat the entire circuit again. And then the 3rd time. (Don’t forget to drink your water, change how many reps you do and take as much of a break as needed in between sets)
Lunge – avoid going super low, protect your SI (sacroiliac) Joint)
Side Leg Raise
Lying Ball Curl
Super Set Combo
Seated Calf Raise
In case you’re wondering about cardio… you can use an elliptical trainer on the days you aren’t doing the above workout. Flavia would do 2 first trimester workout days and 2 cardio days per week. (For example: Monday – First Trimester Workout, Tuesday – First Trimester Cardio, Wednesday – First Trimester Workout Day, Thursday – First Trimester Cardio).
(Curvalicious Workout is PERFECT for after pregnancy weight loss!)
P.S. If you’re pregnant or are want to be pregnant and are wondering what pregnancy exercises you can do, what you can eat while pregnant, what supplements to take while pregnant then check out Flavia Del Monte & Ryan Watson’s NEW All Belly Pregnancy (available Monday, June 24th @ 12:01 AM EST)

Happy Birthday to me (Yoon)… (^_^) But more importantly is your reminder that…
Today is your last opportunity to get access to the only workout program in history that utilizes Targeted MRT Workouts to carve out toned, defined and sexy curves, and to ensure you don’t miss out on the 1/2 off once-a-year discount Flavia’s put together her Top 10 Reasons why it will be a phenomenal decision to join the other 3,114+ who are already on board…
1. You get the complete (gym version & home gym version) 5-day video workout program that targets a different bodypart each workout.You get Luscious Legs, Tummy Tightener, Amazing Arms, Better Back & Strong Shoulders & Bombshell Booty. Targeted muscle work is the key to giving your muscles shape and strength. Flavia goes over the top in video production and while she is doing the exercise, you’ll get her voice commentary explaining every little detail of the movement! It’s VERY instructional and easily worth 10x the tiny price she’s asking… Oh yeah… the program comes with Printable Workout Sheets with pictures so you’ll know EXACTLY what to do when you land in the gym.
2. You’ll also learn about Flavia’s easy and simple Nutrition Guide which includes Curve meals to gain muscle, Control meals to balance out your hormones and manage craving, and Cut meals that you follow before you workout to maximize fat burning! It’s all based science she’s learned from her Masters Level Nutrition Certification.
==> Last day to get the entire Curvalicious Body Sculpting System <----- 1/2 Off Ends Tonight
3. You’ll also get Flavia’s “Step-by-Step Abs Diet” which reveals her entire 8-week diet (meal by meal, day by day) as a *FREE* bonus gift. This will never be made available to purchase, it’s a launch exclusive. (Oh yeah, it’s the IDENTICAL diet that just landed her this cover & produced these amazing photos):
4. LET’S BE HONEST: most female ‘fat loss programs’ are a joke & barely burn 200-300 calories with wimpy style workouts that rely on going for the burn and doing high reps with low weight. Are you kidding me? Science confirms that high rep ‘toning workouts’ are the least effective workouts for fat loss! Flavia’s Targeted MRT Workouts will not only burn more fat during the workout but for 48 hours afterwards so you can reveal killer definition under the fat!
5. Traditional ‘toning programs’ have got it COMPLETELY WRONG with their high rep & low weight workouts that contribute to myogenic muscle tone – the type of tone that is made up of “soft & mushy” stuff like mitochondria, glycogen, capillaries and water. This just makes you bigger, but NOT more defined. What you need is…
6. Neurogenic Muscle Tone! This is the type of tone that is developed when you challenge your nervous system and lift much heavier weights. Flavia will introduce you to heavier weights with less than 7 reps in a set, the key is preventing muscle loss and gaining muscle while following a fat loss program. This is the secret to bringing out toned, defined & sexy curves!
7. You’ll gain NEW muscle on your body. No muscle = No shape! If you want luscious legs, a tight tummy, strong shoulders, beautiful back & amazing arms — you MUST add a few pounds of muscle to your body. Say goodbye to skinny and soft & say hello to strong & sculpted!
==> Last day to get the entire Curvalicious Body Sculpting System <----- 1/2 Off Ends Tonight
8. You’ll never hit a weight loss plateau again! Why? Because science confirms every pound of muscle burns an extra 50 calories a day! Do the math: gain 1 pound of muscle that’s 18,250 extra calories you’ll burn off while watching TV! That’s 5 pounds of fat! Add just three pounds of muscle to your body and you’ll burn an extra 54,750 calories a year or 15 pounds of fat! The “secret” to staying lean is adding muscle to your frame because you improve your “metabolic machinery”.
9. You’ll look AMAZING this summer! Your friends will say “WOW!” Your man won’t be able to keep his eyes (and hands) off you. You’ll be the talk of your gym. You’ll be able to wear anything and I mean ANYTHING you want. You’re going to look & feel your ABSOLUTE best and have the knowledge to keep your body looking AMAZING 365 days a year!
10. Once this launch sale is over, it’s over! The bonuses disappear and the price will be DOUBLE so buy Curvalicious today — I’ve seen the entire program and it’s PHENOMENAL. One of the BEST investments you’ll ever make. I promise! For less than the price for a night out at the movies, you can get access to step-by-step, strategic & scientific approach to toned, defined and sexy curves… Head on over to Flav’s site and grab your copy right now:

Now, onto an article that explains why your age has nothing to do with gaining weight. Blame Flavia for burning this excuse for you 🙂
Muscles, Metabolism & Body Composition
By Flavia Del Monte
There are a few things you need to know about muscles, energy, and metabolism:
• Muscles use energy when they contract (they’re highly metabolic).
• The more intense muscle contractions become, the more energy they’ll use to perform the movement.
• Eventually, movements can become so intense that your muscles will use more oxygen than your body can produce. This creates an oxygen deficit that can last for hours after a workout.
• Your body needs more nutrients after an oxygen deficit because it needs to replenish its energy and oxygen levels.
• To build muscle, you need to be taking in more energy than it’s putting out.
• Resistance training and high intensity exercise,s prevent muscle loss by stimulating protein synthesis.
• Metabolic rates fall for three reasons when you fail to take in enough nutrients: thyroid function slows, there is a reduction in muscle mass, and there is a lower thermic effect of eating.
The secret to changing your body composition is making the right lifestyle changes. Simply by adopting a few healthy habits, you can enjoy lean muscle mass, with a lower body-fat percentage.
Keep the habits, and these changes will continue to stay with you as you age, making it possible for you to burn calories and enjoy a beautiful body shape at any age.
This is quite the opposite of what many people believe.
A number of people blame their poor body shape on the natural aging process, but this simple isn’t true. At least, not quite.
Research shows your metabolism declines with each decade over the age of 25. Your muscle mass also declines between the ages of 25 and 65. And since muscles use energy, we can safely assume the two are related — the drop in your metabolism (which makes losing weight seem more and more difficult as we age) is the result of a loss of muscle mass.
The only way to keep your metabolism at it’s highest levels and ready to burn calories is through regular resistance training, eating healthy, wholesome meals frequently and consistent, and customizing your workout routines to avoid muscle adaption. And if you stick to these three steps, your body should stay healthy, fit, and young for years to come. Ensure your female fitness workouts include resistance training so you can look and feel your best.
END Of ARTICLE
Think your body could benefit from a few extra pounds of muscle?
Adding just one pound of muscle will help you keep off an extra 26,000 calories a year (one pound of muscle burns an extra 50 calories a day).
No wonder girls with muscle can go away on vacations, eat more than everyone else and barely gain weight! Plus that muscle will give your body SHAPE! Shape to slip into that sexy bikini so you’re ready for your next summer vacation.
No muscle = No shape.
Curvalicious provides a lot of direct muscle work to burn fat, give your body shape, keep your metabolism soaring and prevent the scale from spinning upwards ever again.

If Flavia was in front of you right now you’d probably be asking her things like
“What did you eat? Were you on a diet? How many calories did you have…? Can you send me a list of what you ate? I’d love it if you could send me your dieting secrets.”
Well, you can actually find out EXACTLY what she did leading up to the fitness magazine cover model photoshoot!
Guess what she did?
She RECORDED every single day, every single meal for an entire 8 WEEKS. I mean, like, who even does that?!
Flavilicious does and it’s because she’s committed to putting together the most important piece of a Curvalicious body — the nutrition!

Want to follow a similar program to what professional bikini models, fitness models and celebrities do to get into their best shape?
Although these physique girls take months dieting down into tip-top shape, there is a list of sneaky variables they manipulate in the final 10 days to make their bodies look 20 pounds lighter.
For the next 2 DAYS, I am giving away these tricks for F.R.E.E when you pick up Curvalicious at $50 OFF!
How is The 10-Day Strip The Fat Diet so effective?
Essentially, it’s the condensed Cliff’s Notes of what professional bikini-models, fitness models and celebrities do in the final few days before a photoshoot, show or appearance.
The guide teaches you how to manipulate your:
- carbs (this is the big one)
and a few more neat tricks…
For Full Disclosure…
Keep in mind that you can lose only about 2-3 pounds of bodyfat in 10 days if you’re already exceptionally lean (considerably more if you have more to lose), but on the other hand you can drop PILES of weight, in the form of water (not muscle).
That’s essentially the key to your success on the 10 Day Diet, learning the secrets of the natural fitness models to manipulate your water levels so you (literally) look 20 pounds lighter but your muscles will still be FULL & RIPPED!
Sounds crazy, but it’s true!
Until now, these secrets were only held by professional physique coaches and competitors & celebrities would have to pay literally over $1,000 to hire a coach to teach them this info.
How Do I Know These Secrets?
As you know, my husband is a Pro Fitness Model, my trainer, Ryan Watson, is a NPC level bodybuilder (and specializes in training girls for shows) and my husband’s coach, Ben Pakulski, just happens to be one of the top 10 bodybuilders in the WORLD. To say I’m on the “inside” is an understatement 🙂
And now MY hookups are YOUR hookups when it comes to manipulating your body and looking your best for that upcoming
cruise, hot date or summer beach vacation.
Will I Be Training 3 Times a Day for 10 Days?
Now, you probably assumed you will be training as hard as possible but that’s the WRONG strategy! In fact, you will only be training 6 of the 10 days and your training will remain the same.
It’s virtually ALL in the diet!
This is an extremely educational resource to enhance your look, and there’s no shame to turning to some of the more sneaky strategies only top physique girls and celebrities know.
(FYI – this does not require the use of any special supplements or diuretics or stimulants. All you need is FOOD and a pen & paper to do a few calculations).
Just decide what day you want to look your best and turn on the 10-day “countdown to the big date” and you’re going to be looking HOT just in time for your big event!
This is a really rare opportunity and this guide will be added to the download page for those that pick up Curvalicious on Tuesday and Wednesday (if you ordered on Monday, you’ll receive it too 🙂 )
Thanks Flavia for letting us know about your bonus “10-Day Strip The Fat Diet” guide!

Note: If you’re a women then you’re going to want to read each and every word of this post…
If you’re interested in learning how to get tight and toned, and FINALLY burn off that stubborn fat so you can wear anything, and I mean ANYTHING with confidence, then I have some shocking news for you.
Literally 99.9% of the info you’ve read on ‘toning’ is DEAD WRONG!
Think toning is ‘firming up the muscle’? Nope! Muscle is already firm! There is no such thing as a flabby muscle, only flabby fat.
Think toning happens from high reps and light weights and going for the burn? Nope! That’s so wrong that science has even confirmed high rep ‘toning workouts’ for women don’t burn sufficient calories to burn fat.
Think toning happens when you just lose the fat? Nope! Again, TOTALLY wrong!
And to make matters worse, most “fitness experts” and the media perpetuate these myths.
You see, “toning” as people call it, should be the easiest goal to accomplish, but due to all the misconceptions about it, most females just spin their wheels and think that exercise doesn’t work for them.
Toning is actually a two step process: First you need to add minimal amounts of calorie-burning muscle to give your body SHAPE & CURVES & ensure your metabolism never ever slows; and the second part is STRIPPING the fat to reveal the SEXY definition so you look strong and sculpted, not skinny and soft (as most wimpy fat loss programs leave you).
Fortunately, I have a great friend who’s been a Registered Nurse for 9-years, a certified trainer, and nutritionist who has created a PHENOMENAL workout and nutrition program, Curvalicious. Curvalicious is a step-by-step guide to helping women simultaneously melt fat off while tightening and sculpting your muscles, using scientific methods that WORK.
