Hi Everyone! I’m going to discuss why you should be lifting weights, TODAY, not tomorrow. Are you stuck in a rut at the gym, tired of sweating all over your stair master, while the scale doesn’t move a decimal? Grab a kettlebell, TRX, dumbbell or barbell! Pumping iron burns 40% more fat and expedites your metabolism, so you can stand in front of the mirror nakie, and not screech in terror!
Nutrition is so important if you want to keep your hormones properly balanced. All hormones are made from either cholesterol or amino acids (proteins). So, diets high in carbs and low in protein (and believe it or not, cholesterol) can cause hormonal imbalance.
Since all hormones are related and connected, excessive levels of one may throw others out of balance. For example, the high insulin levels created by many typical American diets high in refined sugar and other simple carbs disrupt the function of thyroid, reproductive and adrenal glands.
“I’m going to lose some weight and then start working out” I cringe every time I hear some obese and unhealthy person spit these words out to me when I sincerely try to offer them some help and some sound education and advice.
It's not always possible to eat your meals and snacks at the dinner table, but when you eat on the run or while doing something else, you're more likely to consume extra calories. To prevent weight gain, avoid munching in these five places.
Are you Eating Clean or Eating Correctly?
The topic of "eating clean for fat loss" always seems to come up. Yes if you eat clean (and I mean really clean and consistent for a lengthy period of time), fat loss can be a byproduct of your food selection.
However this is a really blind approach to achieving long lasting and successful fat loss. I can say first hand, I've fielded COUNTLESS inquiries from people saying "I eat clean but I just can't seem to lose the weight".
I want to clarify "eating clean" doesn't mean eating CORRECTLY when it comes to fat loss.
