The creator of the program: the author of 6 Minutes To Skinny is Craig Ballantyne, a world class fitness, workouts and nutrition leading expert already very well known for his other program Turbulence Training, another time efficient fat burning and lean muscle program (read the review here).
You can Google his name and find all the information you need about him, here will suffice to say that he has a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology at the McMaster University of Ontario, Canada, and he has made a point of dedicating his life to scientifically find the most effective ways and time efficient workouts in order to achieve fat loss without the need of wasting your life in a gym or following complicated diet plans.
Just like TT, this new program is geared towards accomplishing real life results, fat loss and lean muscle in the shortest possible time by implementing strategic high intensity workouts coupled with suitable nutritional guidelines. My opinion is that in fact, 6 Minutes To Skinny is even more radical, minimalist and time efficient than Turbulence Training.
The program is clearly designed with effectiveness and efficiency in mind, catering for an ever increasing crowd of people fed up with long gym workout sessions or endless cardio, either because of lack or progress, time, or both.
The program could not be more minimalist and simpler when it come to time investment, it can go down to as little as 5 minutes of precise sequences of morning exercises to boost your fat burning metabolism for the whole day. Why in the morning, you will find out later.
It is very much a Craig Ballantyne style approach, without nonsense but full of scientifically supported, backed up evidence that goes against the mainstream time-wasting workout and cardio traditional routines.
What we liked about this program is that it can be implemented anytime, anywhere, at home and traveling without the need of weights or machines, unless you want. But before we get down to the workings of the program, scroll down below the video and you’ll find a quick summary of what’s inside it.

6 Minutes To Skinny Metabolic Cycling In Depth – What Is It All About?
Combining Early Morning Exercises And Food For Best effect
As the name implies, the program makes it possible to start and maintain your fat burning mode with a simple routine lasting as little as 6 minutes per day, without the need to count calorie or other complicated calculations or worse, taking so called “fat loss” pills.
It revolves around unusual but scientifically backed up tips and insider information that we could not find in other programs of this kind and we were particularly surprised regarding a specific food that must be avoided like the plague to prevent storing fat (sorry, we cannot give you that away).
Being designed with practicality in mind, it also gives away, for example, 3 particular dessert recipes based on chocolate, cheese or carbs that, according to the author, are designed to satiate without feeling deprived.
Not just the desserts, but all the nutritional tips are designed so as to give you all the nutrients you need without feeling tired but feeling energized without actually gaining fat but actually losing it while your metabolism is high. All these strategies, as unlikely as they seem, are backed up by scientific facts, results and references you have access to.
We fund this to be a plus of this program, no need for boring diets or giving up on social life. The author clearly states that most of the nutritional information out there is really nothing more than misinformation put out by greedy companies for their own gain.
Worse still, there is generally contradictory information of what works and what does not for weight and fat loss, different opinions on carbs, sugars, fats and so on. Craig Ballantyne is eager to dispel all this confusing information with real life and working scientific tips that he put together in the 6 Minutes To Skinny system.
The same applies for workouts, cardio and pilates, too much of them and too much misinformation. Instead, the 6 Minutes To Skinny uses the so called body natural cycles to boost metabolism and fat burning in a safe and permanent way.
We think, however, that these results are not typical and that they may vary depending on other factor like age, personal basic metabolic rate, gender and genetics.
The key point of the program is treating your body in a natural way and not like a machine, going against what most of the programs and trainers do, setting specific fixed workout regimes and nutritional guidelines that do not change over time, leading to stagnation or worse, over training.
What happens is that most programs give instructions to follow the same workouts and meals plans day in and day out, leading only to short term results because they do not take into account your body natural cycles. Craig Ballantyne makes a point to provide scientific proof that your body follows cycles through the day, like being energetic in the morning, sleepy after lunch and again more energetic in the late afternoon and sleepy before going to bed.
He actually puts into ridicule some well practiced regimes like running every day for 1 hour or working out for 2 hours. This is totally against what mother nature intended. Anything more than 15 minutes running, at the same speed every time is too much, leading to over training. What happens with over training is that your body is then forced to recover instead of burning fat.
Another important point is to avoid not just sugar, which is obvious, but all kinds of sugars disguised in processed food under different guises like corn syrup, fructose, sucrose and so on. They wreak havoc in your insulin levels and your ability to burn fat, instead making you store even more.
On the contrary, some specific treat ingredients are even beneficial for fat burning, like almonds, dark chocolate, peanut butter healthy fats, olive oil phytonutrients that reduce body inflammation, and calcium from cheese that improves body composition, that is less fat and more lean muscle
But the most important point of the program is following your body natural cycles, called “Metabolic Cycling”, that is to eat and exercise accordingly to these, and not to force your body into a preset plan, but rather synchronizing food and exercise in a strategic way with body cycles for maximum effect.
According to the author, the Metabolic Cycling is the most powerful system he has ever designed to safe, permanent and fast fat loss. We cannot say that for sure, but the program is certainly a breath of fresh air, it makes look other programs out there unnecessarily complicated, counter productive and time consuming. On his side, Craig Ballantyne can show tons of real life testimonial to back up his claims.
The 6 Minutes To Skinny program is set up to achieve permanent results without rebounds or yo-yo like crush diet effects because it takes into account your body natural fat burning cycles, and it is so called after a minimalist 6 minutes morning routine designed to kick start your body in fat burning mode through the day, not just during the workout.
6 Minutes To Skinny – How Does It Work?
How Does The Metabolic Cycling Work?
Here is the science behind the program idea. It does work for just about anyone, younger, older, men and women precisely because of the “metabolic cycling” idea, particularly the first cycle of your body which is when you wake up in the morning. This is by far the most important of your natural daily cycles and the top window of opportunity for burning fat and losing weight.
By acting the right way within this early morning cycle, you can kick start your metabolism in high drive for the rest of the day, burning fat all along. The strategy involves doing a specific pattern of movements and eating specific food and ingredients that lead to natural hormonal changes in your body, meaning your body is set up to burn fat for energy.
This 6 minute morning workouts coupled with a metabolic cycle meal is designed to boost metabolism through the day, accelerating fat loss. The workout consists of simple and fast movements performed 5 days a week that are designed to improve energy levels and confidence, boosting enzyme production like citrate synthase in the mitochondria. It is these enzymes that are in turn responsible for burning fat for fuel.
This is what we liked about this program: it is set up to naturally deliver fat loss and health benefits in a fraction of time, handy if you do not have much of it and do not want or cannot spend hours in the gym and follow restrictive and complicate diets.
