So today's workout was not lifting in my gym, or running on the treadmill. Nope, it was simply working on some landscaping and working on some parking for my clients. You see, I have an extra parking spot, but wanted to raise it up so that is was more level.
Adhering to a strict diet routine to lose weight can be a tough task. Today, people are surrounded by great food wherever they go. Be it at a wedding, birthday party or social get-together, there is a vast variety of mouth-watering delicacies and scrumptious dishes that are sure to throw your Indian diet plan for weight loss for a toss. The unhealthy eating habits and irregular exercise routines have made the Indian diet plan for weight loss extremely necessary.Stated below are a few steps to help you stick to a strict Indian diet plan for weight loss:
It isn't all about the calories!! It is about the type of food we eat. Unprocessed whole raw foods take more energy=calories to break down.

Although my title and profession is that of a personal trainer, I really consider myself more of an educator. Due to the conflicting information about health and weight loss, most clients that I meet are misinformed and confused about wellness.

Marketing, one of those things that can create confusion especially in our world of fitness. Here is what I think are some of the phrases we hear in fitness that may confuse consumers. We have all seen it from the words "toning" "lean" "weight loss" and the most infamous, "long lean muscles". Also "six pack abs" "bigger", "stronger", "shredded", and just get "jacked". I don't know if you noticed, but marketing words used as my examples definitely target specific genders.
