Blueprint for faster fat loss

By Charles Poliquin

BioSignature goes beyond standard body fat testing and REVEALS your BLUEPRINT for FASTER FAT LOSS! This means that your body fat levels and corresponding imbalanced hormones can be effectively managed through a combination of diet, exercise, a targeted supplementation program, and lifestyle modifications.  A trained BioSignature practitioner will develop that plan for you based on YOUR unique biological signature. This means FASTER results and FEWER supplements than is possible with the industry's typically more random and haphazard approach.

So what is BioSignature Modulation?

BioSignature Modulation is a systematic approach to losing unwanted body fat in specific locations "Spot reduction". The science behind BioSignature Modulation comes from skin fold data Charles Poliquin has gathered over the past 20 years and comparing his data against blood, urine and saliva tests to determine a clients specific hormone imbalance 

Charles Poliquin has discovered 12 specific sites that can be measured to scientifically determine what hormones need to be optimised and which supplements can be used to achieve rapid results in fat loss. 

The Power of Hormones

Hormones, diet and the right kind of exercise are all critical components in how the body looks and feels. BioSignature Modulation allows us to look at specific hormones and how they can affect weight loss and the overall condition of the body. For example, the thicknesses of one’s umbilical skin fold, belly button? Is a reflection of one's cortisol output. It is a direct reflection of one's stress levels and their ability to handle it. BioSignature Modulation allows us to recommend specific supplements, exercise and dietary changes that can specifically target fat loss in the belly region. Some females have a tendency to store a majority of their fat in the hips and thighs while others may store fat in the arms and torso. Specific hormones dictate where and why the body stores fat. BioSignature Modulation allows us to naturally fix the hormones that are out of balance allowing for quick and effective fat loss in the targeted areas. 

What do the experts say about BioSignature?

"Biosignature is a revolutionary tool for the clinician who wants to individualize metabolic healing by designing protocols that have the greater success."

- Suzanne Mack, M.D., North Texas Institute of Functional Medicine

"Biosignature is one of the most advanced non-invasive methods available to rapidly and accurately identify insulin resistance and cardiovascular risks. This allows for on-site effective medical treatment decisions."

- Mark Houston, M.D., M.S., F.A.C.P., F.A.H.A
Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine (Vanderbilt University School of Medicine)
Director, Hypertension Institute Saint Thomas Hospital Nashville, Tennessee

Here's how Biosignature Modulation works.

There are 12 major body fat sites that can be quickly and accurately tested by a pair of quality skin calipers and a qualified technician. These sites include the cheek, chin, pectoral region, triceps, umbilical, supra iliac, sub scapular, mid axillary, quadriceps, hamstrings, knee and calf. Although there are many other methods to test body fat, such as underwater weighing and electrical impedance, I believe that body fat testing with skin calipers is the best method to be used for Biosignature Modulation because it can determine precisely the amount of fat in each of the major fat-testing sites were other testing methods only tell you your percent body fat. 

Measurements from each site are then compared to the triceps reading and this identifies which areas of the body have excessive levels of fat relative to the other 11 body fat sites. Some people may have excessive fat in just one area, while others may have several problem areas. Most clients will already have a good idea of what their problem areas are and an experienced practitioner in Biosignature Modulation can often make an accurate visual determination of the problem, but the calipers are quick, easy and reliable. 

Once the biosignature sites are analysed, the next step is to set out a specific protocol of diet, exercise and supplementation to resolve the problem. Let's say that after being tested, it's discovered that there is an excessive amount of fat on the lower thighs (again, relative to the other major fat sites). This indicates that there is a problem with the estrogen levels. If the problem area is the triceps, the issue is with the androgen levels. If the problem area is the shoulder blades or hip, the problem is with your insulin levels. 

After determining the cause of the fat, the next step is to make appropriate modifications in your diet and exercise prescription. For the sub scapular -shoulder blade- and suprailliac -hip-, controlling the blood sugar levels of the body with more frequent meals, reduced daily carbohydrate and low GI food choices is critical. For lower abdominal fat, the key is reducing cortisol levels by restricting the consumption of caffeine and sugar. For the glutes, it's important to detoxify estrogen levels by consuming vegetables such as broccoli that have biochemical’s that accomplish this important task. Many of these dietary recommendations overlap, none of them involve any method harmful to the body, and in fact, all of them will improve the overall quality of life. 

The next step is supplementation.

For the fat on the back of your arms, herbal products such as licorice root, ginseng (which is most effective when taken 45 minutes before a meal), and rhodiola rosea might be prescribed. For the fat stored around the lower back, a supplement of guggul, coleus root and bladderwrack algae could be recommended; as it contains iodine which will strengthen the thyroid gland. For the fat stored around the shoulder blades and hips, corosolic acid, alpha lipoic acid and fish oils may be prescribed to control insulin. For fat storage on the thighs, indole-3-carbinol may be recommended. Taking a multivitamin/mineral pill usually doesn't cause any harm, but it's doubtful that any one product will have the precise quantities of nutrients needed to correct a specific problem, especially with those fat-storage problems involving hormone imbalances. 

The final step is determining an appropriate exercise regimen. For example, for those with lower-body fat, spinning will likely do more harm than good. Spinning will increase the storage of intramuscular and subcutaneous fat in the hip and thigh areas to provide a more readily available source of fuel for the muscles. Instead, a weight training protocol of high reps (10-15) and short rest intervals (about 30 seconds between sets) would be a much more effective choice. 

The Biosignature Modulation program will always be in a constant state of growth as new and better research is constantly being published which improves the system. But now, for the first time, personal trainers can effectively combat site specific areas of fat storage using a simple 12-point skin fold test, dietary changes, supplementation and exercise based on their individual biochemistry.
