Why Diets Don't Work - 09/28/07 05:23 AM
If you go "on a diet", what does that mean? That you will eventually go "off the diet". If you haven't changed your eating and physical activity behaviors, what's going to happen? Rationally, you know the answer, but emotionally, you engage in wishful thinking, hoping that this time you will lose the weight and keep it off. What weight are we talking about?

The Key To Optimal FAT BURN is...??? - 09/25/07 09:02 AM
The majority of us were taught to believe that cardiovascular training was the quickest and most effective way to shed unwanted pounds. Aerobics, jogging, swimming, running and biking were the primary activities to turn to when we wanted to slim down. The idea was that when you perform low level aerobic exercise your body relied on calories from fat. So far so good, right? Well, there were a couple of major limitations with this method... First of all you only burn fat calories while the aerobics are performed. If you do thirty minutes, then you only burn for thirty minutes; if you (0 comments)

Celebrate your success every day! Be proud of what you have accomplished while continuing on your weight loss plan to a healthier, happier and more fit you! Also, be sure to tell your friends about how hard you have been working and how great you feel (if they already haven't told you how great you look!). This will probably make them take a close look at themselves and their lifestyles and hopefully encourage and inspire them to begin or to enhance their exercise routines and nutritional plans. All it takes are a few encouraging words and leading by example and you (0 comments)

Do You Keep a Training Journal? - 09/19/07 06:16 AM
Always make sure to keep a detailed training journal. By keeping a journal of your training sessions, you will have a detailed log of your every exercise you perform along with reps, sets and how much weight you lifted. It's also great to document how you felt before, during and after your training session along with any food/supplements you took before and after you trained. By keeping an training journal, you will have access to a wealth of information and be able to detect specific areas in your current training routine which can be changed or improved upon.One of the biggest mistakes (3 comments)
Counting Calories For Losing Weight - 09/16/07 09:28 AM
It is not recommended to lose more than 1 pound per week for healthily weight loss. The reason for this has do to with the issues which quick and drastic weight loss can have on your body's metabolism and muscle mass.

The majority of the time, it unfortunately comes from lean muscle mass and this is exactly what will cause serious issues with your metabolism. Muscle is your body's most potent and (5 comments)
