My younger sister recently asked me for some help losing weight.  She had joined a local gym and was exercising almost every day.  She had lost a little weight initially but was not getting the results she wanted.  When I asked her about her gym routine she said she was spending 30-45 minutes on the elliptical trainer, followed by some core and arm exercises.  Sound familiar?

We've all been there before: dieting and exercising hard for months, dropping 98% of that excess visceral fat, but then... WE GET STUCK?! Impossible! You've been getting 6-8 hours of sleep more often than not, have eaten well a vast majority of the time and continue pushing your threshold in the gym. What gives? Aren't those three things the keys to avoiding a plateau and continual success? The answer: Yes and No.

If you’re like many women, yourbreakfast and lunch tend to be light and you rake in most of your protein at dinner via lean options like chicken or fish. On paper that sounds like a healthy diet plan, but it turns out that loading most of your protein into one sitting may not be getting you the results you’re after.

 There's no denying it any longer: the holiday season is officially here. And you know what that means: holiday food, and lots of it. Sugary, buttery, carb-packed, delicious holiday food.

Fat loss eating is different from a weight loss approach to food. Weight loss places a sole focus on calories. Fat loss focuses on calories too, but puts more focus on hormones. Fat loss is about eating in a way that controls the natural compensatory nature of your metabolism. Metabolic sensations such as hunger, cravings, and energy are dramatically influenced by hormones. Balance your hormones and these sensations too will stabilize resulting in less food intake without much conscious effort.

1. Fat takes more than four times the space as muscle. TRUE – muscle takes up less space so that’s why sometimes inches can come off but the scale doesn’t change.2. You can turn fat into muscle through training. FALSE – Body fat and muscle are two completely different tissues and have different structures and functions. One does not have the capability to turn into the other.
