Did you fall for it too?

The madness has to stop. This might come across as a soapbox rant, and for that, I apologize, but trust me when I say that this is a message that needs to be spread. Your fat loss depends on it. We all want to be fit and lean, right? So why do we fool ourselves into thinking that we are eating healthy…when our diets consist of so many processed foods? Don’t fall for it:  so-called healthy packaged foods are NOT guilt-free. I can’t tell you how many folks I’ve seen chow down on  organic, all-natural, gluten-free, vegan or high-fiber   packaged foods …only to see their fat loss halt and reverse. What did you expect? Packaged snacks and desserts are going to stop fitness results and encourage fat storage. Every. Single. Time. Even if it says  healthy, or all-natural, or high-fiber, or organic, or gluten-free, or vegan. If it’s processed and packaged then it’s getting in the way of your results. If you are serious about shaping up your body then thr

Here’s why you can’t slim down…

  Wanting to lose fat, and failing at it, is one of the most frustrating experiences ever. Read the following 7 Fat Loss Problems to discover what is standing in your way and how to quickly and easily begin reshaping it all. Fat Loss Problem #1: Your Mind Your mind is your number one ally when it comes to achieving your goals. However, until your mind has been programmed for success, it will do more to derail your efforts than to help you. Take a few moments each day to visualize yourself at your ideal weight. Imagine how it feels to look the way you’ve always wanted. Protect your mind from any negative self-talk. If a negative thought comes to mind, immediately reject it. You want to be thin and fit, and yet you think of yourself as out-of-shape and fat. Re-program your mind to think of yourself as fit and attractive, and you will be well on your way toward achieving your goal. Give up the belief that you can’t achieve the body you’ve always dreamed of. S

3 Reasons You Cant Slim Down (Nothing to do with exercise and diet!)

15 Reasons You MUST Lift Weights After 40

  After age 40 or so, many people start to gain weight, develop high blood pressure, and become frailer and weaker by the day. Plus, we have universal fears that getting older means we’ll be likely to fall and develop dementia, losing our independence in life. But what if we told you about a miracle drug that would help you lose weight, manage your blood pressure, and improve your bone density and strength? What if this drug also helped prevent falls and memory loss? If that came in a pill, you’d swallow it, right? Who wouldn’t? Well... that pill doesn't exist. But if the miracle cure came from strength training? Would you be as excited? Probably not. The health benefits of lifting weights (or resistance/strength training) for older people have been proven countless times over many years. Yet it’s still seen as a young person’s activity, usually in pursuit of nothing more than a muscular physique. Education is crucial in overcoming harmful stereotypes, so w

Why Fat Loss After 40 Is Even More Important Than Ever (Real Talk)

  Fitness Success After 40 isn't about changing a million different things all at once. Its about focusing on one or two things and leveraging that. After years of starvation diets, over-exercising, weight loss challenges and other gimmicks your metabolism may become stunted, stalled or slow to burn calories. This leads to: Fear of Aging - Worried about the typical health issues that come with aging, such as reduced mobility, strength, and overall fitness. Desire for Control - Feel like you've lost control over your body and want to regain it Social Pressure -You may feel social pressure to look a certain way, especially in a society that often values youth and thinness. (Total BS By The Way..!) Lack of Confidence - You may lack confidence in your ability to lose weight or get fit Fear of Failure - You may have tried to lose weight in the past and failed, which could make her hesitant to try again. I get it. These are all very real emotional

Top 5 (non fat loss related) Reasons To Get Fit, Healthy and Active

There’s a problem with your diet…

  For more than 20 years the media has bombarded us with a perpetual diet craze. An avalanche of fad diets are announced one after another as breaking news while producing zero true results. Sure, you may lose 5, 10 or even 20 pounds on a fad diet…but you’ll gain it all back and then some. How can I be so confident that your results will be short-lived? It’s actually a simple concept, and once you understand it you will be forever saved from the tortures of yo-yo dieting. (Read: Basic Fat Loss Math HERE ) Fad diets saddle you with unreasonable calorie restrictions and some even cut out entire food groups just to produce that short-lived drop in weight—a process that is actually harmful to your health. The fad diets also ignore one major component to shaping up: exercise. You see, most fad diets operate on one age-old premise:  cut calories, cut calories, cut calories.  By restricting the type and amount of food consumed the fad dieter usually sees an immediate drop in weig

7 Things That Are Sabotaging Your Metabolism

7 Ways to Sabotage Your Metabolism

There are probably a few things in your life that you’d like to slow down… But when it comes to your metabolism? Probably not.   Unfortunately, there are  plenty  of sneaky ways we slow our metabolism down — here are 7 of the most common metabolism saboteurs: 1, You don’t eat enough Your body is smart! When you regularly eat less fuel than you burn, your body can make itself even  more  efficient by lowering how many calories it needs. This can happen if 1) you exercise a lot and don’t ramp up your food intake to match it; 2) you undereat every day, or 3) go on a lot of diets. 2. You skip meals Research shows that eating regular meals throughout the day is linked with a greater “thermic effect of food” – i.e., more calories burned after eating. Plus, eating on a regular schedule helps your body manage its blood sugar levels, which is a biggie when it comes to your health. 3. You don’t lift weights Strength training helps boost your metabolism in a couple of different ways. Over the lon
