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. Wanna to k

5 Ways To get Back On Track

  Have your weight loss results stopped? Or never got started? Before you blame a fitness plateau for your lack of results let’s take a hard look at the following: 1.

A small treat here, and a bite of something there, and before you know it you’ve fallen back into old eating habits. If your results have stopped then take the next few weeks to track your nutrition and hold yourself accountable for every bite. 2. Your Workouts: If your nutrition has truly stayed on point then your workouts could be the problem. Are you slacking on the final few reps? Have you reduced your overall intensity in the gym? Did you skip a few sessions last week? Before you blame a plateau for your reduced results take a really hard look at your effort in the gym. Rededicate yourself to pushing as hard as you can. 3. Your Sleep: This is a tough one for so many people, but you simply must be getting a

5 Reasons You Aren’t Losing Belly Fat

  When you set out to live a healthier, better life, part of your goal was to shed that belly fat that has plagued you all these years. However, try as you may, it sticks around like a bad habit. While extra belly fat is a deterrent to your self-confidence, it comes with an array of serious health dangers as well. From increased risk for cancer to heart disease to diabetes, unwanted belly bulge puts your life at risk every day. If you’ve been struggling to kiss it goodbye, it may be for one of these five reasons. Reason #1: Your Mediocre Workout As long as you can remember, medical experts have recommended you get at least 30 minutes of exercise a few days a week. And for good reason. Much of the industrialized world has cut movement out of their lives in many ways, making it necessary to hit the gym in order to stay fit. However, if you think 30 minutes of light jogging on the treadmill three days a week is going to get rid of that belly fat, think again. To burn the flab, you’ll n
