According to a new study, eating these for 30 days can add 2lbs of muscle, while at the same time, melting away 2lbs of fat…without changing anything else in your diet or lifestyle.
You’ll never guess what it is?
I couldn’t either.
Here’s what happened…
23 people between the ages of 18 and 65 were recruited to eat 12 green olives a day for 30 days at the University of Palermo .
On average, subjects gained 1kg (2.2lbs) of muscle and lost 1kg (2.2lbs) of fat.
Now imagine adding in weight training. Imagine adding in my FREE THT Training – the scientific way to train for the fastest gains possible.
(And if you are using a shredding program to get abs, you might want to add up to a dozen green olives – of course making them fit into your calories and macros for the day.)
The researchers were actually looking for probiotic, antioxidant, or anti-inflammatory effects of Nocellara del Belice Green Olives. Not changes in body composition.
So what could explain this result? I definitely can’t be sure of that. The researchers wonder if perhaps the Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) levels in the olives could explain it. They said…
“The possible explanation could be linked to the capacity of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) to reduce body fat levels. The molecule is present both in extra virgin olive oil and table olives, and can also be produced during their digestion.”
NOTE: On the issue of CLA and other supplements for fat loss or muscle-building, I created a FREE supplement guide for you! It reveals all the supplements that work, the ones that don’t, and the ones that are actually dangerous. Get this and keep it with you – it’ll save you a ton of money!

I have to admit, the only time I eat olives is when I go to Subway…and that’s not very often. Do you eat olives often? They’re definitely great for a salad or sub – and now that it’s summertime, I’m gonna get some olives thrown into my summer salads!
Let me know below if you have any experience of this, or of any other foods you think make the fat-loss process easier. You can also ask me any questions you might need answered.
P.S. I know that putting together a diet for mass gains or getting shredded abs can be a pain in the butt, especially if you are new to this – that’s why I offer a service where I will do all the tough ground work for you.
You probably don’t know how many calories you need, or how many grams of protein, carbs or fat you need (based on your personal stats)…BUT I DO. Then I can take these numbers and create an exact meal plan for you to hit those numbers spot on! You’ll know what foods to eat and even when to eat them. All you have to do…is do it. No thinking involved. If you’d like me to take care of this for you, see the Get Me Shredded option on my Coaching Page here.
