 That's the magic number. But, that’s not how many pushups or burprees I want you to do. This is the number of calories that equal 1 pound. If you take in 3500 calories you just took on 1 pound. Of course, this means, if you put your body in a deficit of 3500 calories, that's 1 pound you’ve lost.

Hi everyone. Today I want to quickly write about doing your research. As I have stated before, there are so many sources of information out there in magazines, websites, or even from others in regards to health and fitness. Some of these are trusted companies/people and others are bogus. Today I read an article on a trusted nutrition company’s website about how bad dairy is for you and how you should cut it out completely from your diet (PSA: don’t do this unless prescribed from your doctor or registered dietician).

Dieting is a short term solution for a long term problem. More than 90% of dieters will regain their weight back within 2 years.
