Let’s get flexible!

  You eat the right foods, drink the right drinks, and exercise regularly. In other words, you’re strong and healthy. There is only one hole in your overall good health. You’re as flexible as a piece of plywood. But there’s good news! You don’t have to stay inflexible your entire life. With the right steps, you can improve your flexibility, which will make life that much better. Ready to get started building a more flexible you? Here’s how. Roll Before For many years, it was common practice to stretch before working out. In recent years, folks have ditched that advice for something better: lightly performing whatever you plan to do. Going to run? Walk and then jog before getting into a run. For those who want to take their routines to the stretchy limit, it’s time to use a foam roller. With a foam roller, you work to gently stretch your muscles before working them out, and better yet, you stretch them out safely. Essentially a massage for your muscles, foam rolling helps your muscl

7 Simple Fat Loss Rules

  If you’re ready to reduce your body fat, you can’t go about it haphazardly. You’ll have to drop the anything-goes attitude and adhere to seven rules that will make your fat-burning attempts a wild success. What are those rules? You’re about to find out. Rule #1: Water Rules Ready to melt away the fat that’s been clinging to your front, back, and sides since you can remember? Then you’ll need to drink water. A lot of it. Every time you feel the urge to drink something, make it water. Not juice. Not milk. And definitely not beer. They add sugars and calories to your daily intake, which will do nothing but make it harder to get rid of your fat stores. Drinking water also helps you avoid eating when you’re not hungry, feel better, and doesn’t slow you down when it’s time to exercise. Rule #2: Protein, Please Burning fat requires you to eat differently. That means no more eating whatever you want whenever you want. One of the best things you can eat to get rid of fat is protein.

Eat more food = better results

That can’t be true! How could it be? I’ve always heard you need to eat less and move more. Let me explain. In order to lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit. A calorie deficit doesn’t mean 0 calories… A calorie deficit means that you need to burn more calories than you consume. Here’s where most people get it wrong though. Your body needs a MINIMUM number of calories to function properly. Your heart beats. Your lungs breathe. Your organs function. Your brain thinks.   This all requires fuel (aka calories). If you eat too FEW calories, your body will regulate in order to protect itself (survive). Your metabolism will slow down, you will burn muscle for energy, and your body will want to store more fat.    Fat is the longest, slowest burning energy source that we have. Will you lose weight this way?    Absolutely. But the goal isn’t to weigh 0 lbs… The goal is to be strong, lean, and toned.    FOR LIFE! So eat the amount your body needs and get better results!    Win/Win.
