Weight loss is actually an easy thing to do, it’s easy because all you have to do is learn and pattern your eating and fitness strategy to optimal output for your body and type and continue to apply all of that information. So always keep on the look out for new tips you can use for weight loss, tips like the ones in the article here.
To help you with your weight loss regime, make a list of your favorite fruits and vegetables, and research interesting and appealing sounding recipes you can make with them. Smoothies or juicing vegetables are great for this, as are more exotic items you might not normally try. Remember, making your new eating strategy interesting and fun will increase the chances of you sticking with it.
Treating yourself can actually be an important part of any weight loss strategy. Making hard and fast rules about food, such as telling yourself that you’ll never eat chocolate cake ever again, can actually make you obsess about food. This leads to stress and overeating, both of which can ruin your weight loss plan. Try to give yourself a small treat everyday, or a slightly larger one at the end of the week for making your goals.
If you are overweight, consider weight loss as a way to ease joint pain. If you begin making changes for a healthier lifestyle, your body will benefit. Losing weight minimizes pressure and strain on joints, and is worth trying before considering more radical chemical treatments. Sometimes, all you need is a change!
When you are wanting to lose weight the best thing that you can remember is to find exercises you love! If you find something that you really enjoy you will be more likely to stick with it. If you hate something you’ll end up dreading it every time you need to do it and before you know it you will start putting it off or skipping it.
When you are trying to lose weight, take the amount of food you usually eat and divide that portion in two. Check in with yourself after you have finished with that much, and see if you are actually satisfied with half the amount you usually eat. You will be surprised at how often you keep on eating just because it is there in front of you and not because you are actually still hungry.
Do not go the grocery store on an empty stomach. Your hunger will magnify your desire for junk food, and you risk buying unhealthy snacks that will make you gain weight. When you are not hungry, you have more mental control over what groceries you should buy that is appropriate for your eating strategy.
It’s hard to lose weight if you don’t allow yourself any treats. One good way to have your treat and eat it to is to buy one bag or container of something you love to eat per week and no more. Allow yourself a little of your treat per day and you won’t feel as deprived and overeat something else.
A great tip to help you lose weight is to track your progress by using your belt. Scales can be very inaccurate when determining how fit you are, but your belt will let you know if you’re losing weight. If you have to increase a notch or two in your belt, then you are making great progress.
These tips were only but a portion of what you can possibly learn that there is to know about weight loss. Weight loss can be a touchy subject for a lot of people but proper education should get ride of any doubt about how to lose weight. You just have to remember to not only educate yourself but to also apply that education, if you do that then weight loss shouldn’t be a hard thing to do.

Yours In Success,
Losing weight can seem like an impossible task to accomplish. Just thinking of starting a new plan or exercise routine can seem overwhelming. But with a little discipline and a healthy balanced eating strategy it is possible to achieve your weight loss goals. Finding a weight loss plan that you can stick to long-term is essential.
Occasionally it is perfectly ok to give in to a craving. Every now and then, reward your hard work by indulging in one of your favorite foods. But always remember to use portion control. Instead of reverting to your old habit of eating an entire bowl of ice cream or a huge slice of cake, just eat a small amount, savoring every bite.
To add variety to your eating strategy and enhance your weight loss success, keep an open mind about foods. Just because you didn’t care for the taste of spinach when you were a child doesn’t mean you won’t find it appealing as an adult. Try sampling healthful vegetables and fruits you’ve never eaten before and you might just be surprised at what you’ve been missing.
Don’t be afraid to give yourself pep talks when needed. If you are scared of looking stupid, then you are only holding yourself back due to a silly fear that is just nonsense. Give yourself a pep talk, regardless of where you are, any time you feel that you are slipping down a bit.
In order to lose more weight faster, add green tea to your nutritional plan. Green tea is known to increase metabolism. Studies have shown green tea to boost metabolism 4% without effecting heart rate. It also has small amounts of caffeine. Green tea has become widely available and reasonably priced.
Losing weight is not easy to do alone. To assist you to lose weight, it is helpful to have an accountability coach or exercise buddy; someone who can keep your company and keep you on track. Not only is having a buddy great for accountability, but it can also make it easier to do activities that you would not want to try alone, like going to a challenging new class at the gym.
When adopting a new eating strategy to lose weight, be sure not to starve yourself. Studies have shown that people who eat less and are thinner are shedding excess water before the body goes into starvation mode. This is counterproductive to the weight loss process. Be sure to eat plenty of fresh vegetables rich in micronutrients and lots of fresh seasonal fruit to maintain energy and to boost the immune system and metabolism.
If you overeat one day let yourself know that there is nothing wrong with that and it is not the end of the world. All you have to do is make sure to do a little more physical activity the next day to get off all of the calories that you consumed.
Do not be discouraged when you gain weight in any one week during your new routine. One reason could be that your gained more muscle mass than fat that you had lost! And that’s no bad thing at all, as more muscle means more calories will be burned. This is especially common in people that were very inactive or that added a great deal of exercise to their normal routine. There are other causes possible as well.
Grab a smaller plate. Even the healthiest foods can be bad for you if you eat too much of them. Using a smaller plate or bowl can help your brain tell you that your stomach is full faster, because your eyes are used to seeing larger plates. Take advantage of this to avoid over-eating.
A journal can be a very effective tool in your weight loss plan. Keeping a journal helps to make you accountable. It also lets you know what’s working (and what isn’t) during the journey toward your weight loss goal. Write every bit of food you consume in your journal, and every minute of exercise as well.
As was stated before, losing weight can seem like an impossible task to accomplish. It is easy to feel overwhelmed, but instead of feeling overwhelmed feel empowered. Find a weight loss plan that works for you, and make it a part of your life. As long as you stay dedicated, it is completely possible to achieve your weight loss goals.

Yours In Success,
Happy Monday to you!
I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to kick butt this week. I was a bit troubled over a conversation I had with a friend over the weekend about trying to lose weight and eating better. She was talking about a wrap that would allow her to slowly begin to eat better, but immediately be able to wear a dress she hadn’t been able to wear in over six months to go to a party. It left me no option than to tell her what I thought about her situation and to also write this post for you.
Salons, spas and affiliate marketing companies have been offering body wraps for years. Now they have become the newest way to lose fat. The truth is, you may lose weight and inches but the loss is temporary. It may last up to a week but the loss is entirely water weight and will be regained. This article will discuss the pros and cons of body wraps.
Exercise can be pretty boring. When trying to lose weight, make sure you have some entertainment during those long cardio sessions. Get a book to read or even an audio book to listen to. Create a music playlist that is fast and high-energy and will keep your body moving.
A vital step in weight loss success is understanding portion sizes. Get in the habit of reading the nutrition label before you eat or drink anything. As I always say, if you don’t know what it is….DON’T EAT IT! Although the carbs and calories may look fine at first glance, you will often be surprised to find that there are two, three or more servings in that one bag or bottle.
A great weight loss tip is to pack your lunch. No matter how carefully you make your selections, food choices at restaurants are always going to be higher in fat, calories, carbs and sodium than what you can make yourself. You can still treat yourself to a lunch out on occasion, but make a habit of taking your lunch with you most days.
It may seem hard to find time to exercise when trying to lose weight, but you can burn calories by doing your regular household chores. Vacuuming, washing dishes, and doing laundry are all regular chores that burn fat. Since everyone finds time to do housework, it is easy to do some exercise every day. If you are more ambitious, you can get a solid workout in first thing in the morning taking no more than 20 minutes.
A simple way to stay on task when it comes to weight loss is to have an accountability partner to do these things with you. Having a friend that is also eating healthier and exercising along with you can motivate you to keep going, even if its under the obligation of your promise. Also, this way, not everyone around you is eating the fatty foods you can barely resist.
Adjusting your bedtime ritual can help you be successful on your weight loss journey. Adding an extra hour of sleep time has been shown to help people make better decisions when it comes to the food they eat. Feeling more alert also helps to reduce stress-eating.
Try sucking on an ice cube as a means to curb a craving. This trick works well because the desire to eat is often sated just by having some sort of foodstuff in your mouth.
The benefit of a body wrap is really softer, smoother skin. During the treatment, you will sweat and remove some toxins from the body but, like water weight, the toxins will eventually return. Body wraps are probably best for someone who wants to look a bit slimmer for a special evening or weekend. Regular body wraps are not dangerous as long as you remain hydrated.
Do you want temporary and more expensive, or permanent and life changing?

Whenever anyone says or gestures that they want to lose weight, most of the time, they point to their guts saying “I wanna lose all this!” Obviously, abdominal weight loss is a goal for many people. However, what most people might not be aware of is that-of all exercises-Yoga actually can help immensely for weight loss in the abdominal region.
There are specific poses, that target excess weight in the abdomen and coupled with a customized diet, those seeking abdominal weight loss would find success in using these yoga exercises. Let’s go over them, shall we?
Abdominal Weight Loss: Yoga Poses to Use.
1. The Sun Salutations: These are a combination of poses that serve as a warm up-routine for a Yoga session or class. They are very similar to the popular calisthenics exercise known as burpees. However, they differ in that they have a spiritual significance included as a result of executing them. Due to the forward and backward bending motions involved, after performing a few to several rounds on a daily basis, you are bound to notice a marked loss of weight in you abdominal area and the added bonus of muscular tone.
2. The Bow Pose: This simple pose involves laying flat on your belly and grabbing your ankles with both arms while simultaneously lifting your head up high. When performed correctly, you should be resting on your abdomen. Needless to say, it is a pose commonly recommended for weight loss and the prevention and correction of chronic constipation.
3. The Peacock Pose: This is slightly more challenging. The objective is to balance your abdomen on your conjoined elbows while simultaneously raising your legs and head of the floor. Naturally, merely attempting it speeds up abdominal weight loss and detoxification of the visceral organs and the preparatory stage could suffice as the actual execution of the pose till the mastery of it is achieved.
4. The Abdominal Lift: This is not a pose, per-se but is a specific exercise that involves you exhaling your breath and pulling the diaphragm in while holding the breath out. This is a specific abdominal exercise for weight loss, spiritual rejuvenation and detoxification. Now friends, there are other poses such as the shoulder-stand, the forward-bending pose, the spinal twist and the wheel pose that also target increase in muscular tone and weight loss in the abdominal regions, however from practice the 4 above will perhaps be the most effective.
Do note though that if you are female and pregnant or in your menstrual period, some of these poses might not be the best to execute. Moreover, since these poses-besides helping with abdominal weight loss-aid tremendously with detoxifying, it is advised that one eats a proper and healthy diet to augment the actions of these poses.
Other fantastic exercises for abdominal weight loss include your intense Aerobics, the use of the ab-wheel, basic sit-ups, windmills etc. So empower yourself with these tips and information to achieve your goal for weight loss. Lose that gut starting today.

While we remember Dr Martin Luther King Jr today, in the spirit of the man and the dream I wanted to share a workout with real results with you.
This is a straight forward Tabata style circuit that will maximize fat burning long after you’re done – if you go all in!
Before I give you the layout of the workout, I want to talk a little about what you are eating. All the best fitness and exercising is negated with poor nutrition. If you are not properly nourishing the body, you will never achieve the best results you can.
That said, without further ado, follow this routine using the 20/10 tabata protocol. 20 seconds of 100% maximum effort followed by 10 seconds rest. Do each exercise four times (4 sets) which should take about 16 minutes.
1. Virtual Jump Rope
2. Jumping Jacks
4. Hill Climbers (Mountain Climbers)
5. Squat Jumps
6. Knee Highs
7. Shadow Box
If you need a meal plan to get started with this or any other routine, email me at Jeremy@larochestercoaching.com
and I’ll provide you one for free! Just put “Tabata Meal Plan” in the subject line, include your name and I’ll send it over.

Have a great day!
Hey There! How’s your weekend going?
I was thinking about variety this evening and decided to write a post for you. How can you work out in your own home on those days that you can’t make it to the gym?
Here are a few great ways to work out inside your home while working with what you have near you!
For starters, check your television to see if there are any work outs that you could follow along with. Or break out that DVD set of work outs that were given to you as a gift and you haven’t used yet. If those aren’t your scene then try some of these ways to get a workout in.
Do you have a stairwell? Stairwells are great for doing dips. When you go to the gym you can use a stair-climber. How about just using your own stairwell as a stair-climber?
What about a bathroom or kitchen counter? Start by doing push-ups here before taking your push-ups to the floor. By doing them against a counter it allows you to keep the perfect form that is typically lost when doing push-ups on the floor if not practiced properly.
Do you only have one stair? A step up into the kitchen or down into your living room? Use that stair to do step-ups. Or use it to do calf raises. The stair will permanently be there and will give you that comfort while doing repetitions.
What about arms? You have done your push-ups and your dips. Now grab that can of soup or green beans and do curls. Yes, it is a small can so increase the amount of reps you do to get the most out of it. Or if you are really adventurous try lifting a gallon of water. That way, if by accident you drop it and it spills, it is only water.
Long hallways are great for doing lunges. You will be able to stay in a decently straight line and go up and down the hallway making sure to do the same amount of lunges on both sides.
Any sturdy surface, like a floor, will be great to do your sit ups and crunches on as they will not let your back fluctuate. This will cut back on pain that is created when doing sit-ups on a soft surface.
Hope this gives you some ideas of variety to use this coming week if you are working out at home. Email me at: Jeremy.LaRochester@gmail.com for any questions or assistance I can provide.
Take care and Thanks for Reading!
Good Morning! I have read my emails and I have to tell you all that Fat loss doesn’t have to be painful. Try these simple tips and you’ll see just how easy it can be.
1. Eat smaller more frequent meals – not only is your metabolism boosted every time you eat something, your body can more efficiently process smaller meals. Instead of having 3 large meals in a day, try to break them up into 5 or 6 smaller meals.
2. Drink more water – regular water intake helps to flush away waste products in the body. Get at least six to eight 8 oz. glasses per day. An easy way to do this is to keep a water bottle handy and drink from it frequently.
3. Be inefficient – do you need to go to the kitchen to get a couple of things? Break it up into to two trips even if you can do it in one. Being inefficient like this can easily double your activity level, burning calories without even trying.
4. Eat more protein – sources of protein include foods such as chicken, fish, eggs, dairy, beans, lean red meats, etc. Your body burns more calories processing protein than either carbohydrates or fats. Protein also helps to support your muscle tissue, which burns calories all day long!
5. Take the stairs instead of the elevator – any time you can add in a little more physical activity, do it. This doesn’t mean you need to slog up 20 flights of stairs. Even a flight or two done regularly will add up.
6. Don’t let yourself get hungry – when you get hungry you will have a much greater tendency to overeat when you do finally get something to eat. As well, because your body is starting to go into starvation mode, it will be much more likely to hold onto whatever you give it.
7. Order small portions at restaurants – it’s tough to order small french fries when “supersizing” your order is such a great “value.” Take note, however, your real savings will occur in the calories that don’t end up on your backside.
8. Eat more fiber – fiber is very filling. By eating more fiber you will find yourself full sooner. This feeling of fullness will last a long time as well.
9. Wait 20 minutes between servings – your brain takes at least 20 minutes to register that you’re full. By waiting that long, you’ll give your brain a chance to realize that you don’t really need any more food.
10. Cheat on your diet – one thing I always make my clients promise is that they will cheat on their diet. The only thing I ask that they do is to cheat ONLY when they have planned to cheat. By planning when you are going to eat the foods you crave, you take back control of your eating habits.
This way you no longer “give in” to your cravings. You “reward yourself” for sticking to proper nutritional habits. Do this once or wice a week and you will feel far more in control of your eating.
In conclusion, if you follow even a few of these 10 easy tips in the long term, you will certainly notice a difference in your overall weight and health.

Hey what’s up, recently ……..
several women have told me they eat more than their husbands and want some help?
If there is any question about it: Men are supposed to eat a little more than women due to higher muscle mass. But I usually just adjust the protein intake about 2 extra ounces.
Don’t be ashamed if you do eat more than your partner. It’s quite normal and there are a few things you can do to fix it.
I think there are several factors that cause the phenomena
“No eat, long time” Some women say they are just too busy to eat but I think many women tend to have the misconception that eating less is better so they take it up another level and try not to eat at all or skip meals to lose weight.
While this might have worked for you in high school and early college years, this will always cause you to gain weight in the long run and could damage your metabolism.
Lack of water intake- the mechanism in the brain that lets you know you are hungry and thirsty are closely related and most of the time you reach for snack foods (especially salty ones) when you are really just thirsty. Water is the medium for all biochemical reactions in your body including fat loss.
Stress- The American Physiological Association says Women are more likely than men to report that they eat as a way of managing stress (31 percent vs. 21 percent)
Similarly, women also report having eaten too much or eaten unhealthy foods because of stress in the past month far more often than men (49 percent of women vs. 30 percent of men)
Too many frozen meals- Frozen dinners are a common culprit lunch among women in the office. One of the main problems (other than preservatives, and being carb based meals) is LACK of fresh fruits and vegetables which expand in your stomach and make you feel more full. Processing depletes nutrients and preservatives can make you even more hungry.
If you’re going to eat frozen meals, do it rarely and make sure you accompany the meals with a salad or vegetables.
A few things to help you level out your hormones:
Eat every 3-4 hours. It doesn’t have to be chicken and broccoli every time but something small (Greek yogurt or almonds) will help you from getting ravishly hungry and over-eating at your next meal.
Drink water and then….drink some more. Easiest way to get in your water intake is use bigger bottles, its too hard to keep up with how many cups or bottles you drink. I recommend getting liter water bottles (drink 3 per day)
Workout for stress and don’t be a drama queen. Be proactive vs reactive. Don’t let your emotions control you, control them to your advantage.
Only use processed meals when its just the only thing around. Less the better.
If you are having trouble preparing healthy meals/ fat loss meals- email me at email@example.com

Have a great day!
What’s Up Everyone!
So, as promised, here is part two of belly fat reducing solution.
Nowadays,people think of their gut solely as the mechanism by which your body digests food, which is at best an extreme oversimplification, and at worst an ideology massively contributing to the health problems, weight loss struggles, and auto-immune disorders of millions world-wide.
In reality, your GI tract is MUCH more than a digestion center; in fact, it is quite literally your second brain as well as being “home” to 80% of your immune system.
You see, within your gut reside roughly 100 TRILLION living bacteria…
That’s more than 10 times the number of cells you have in your entire body – and maintaining the ideal ratio of “good bacteria” (known as probiotics) to “bad bacteria” is now gaining recognition as perhaps the single most important step you can take to protect your health and further along your fat loss goals.
In fact, there are more than 200 studies linking inadequate probiotic levels to more than 170 different diseases and health issues; here are just a few:
• Celiac disease, leaky gut, and irritable bowel syndrome
• Mood, psychological health, and behavioral disorders
• Insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes
• The common cold, influenza, and pneumonia
• Liver diseases, such as cirrhosis and cancer
• Eczema, atopic dermatitis, and acne
• Chronic fatigue syndrome
• Food and wheat allergies
• Weight gain and obesity
And many, many more.
To touch briefly on the weight gain and obesity consequences, virtually every study performed on the obese population analyzing gut bacteria found higher instances of “bad” bacteria and lower levels of probiotics (again, the “good” bacteria) within these individuals.
Perhaps you yourself are already experiencing some of the more advanced signs that your intestinal bacterial balance is beginning to spin out of control, such as:
• Gas and bloating
• Constipation and/or diarrhea
• Acid reflux
• Skin problems
• Overall sickness
• Urinary tract infections
• Trouble sleeping
• An inability to lose weight
• Sugar cravings, especially for heavily refined carbs
You see, the ideal healthy ratio of “good” to “bad” bacteria is 85% to 15%, or 9 to 1.
Unfortunately, due to lifestyle and environmental factors, the vast majority of the population is severely lacking when it comes to good probiotic bacteria, throwing their gut flora ratio completely out of whack.
These lifestyle and environmental factors include, but are not limited to, exposure to:
• Artificial sweeteners of any kind (found in “diet” beverages and food items, chewing gum, and even toothpaste)
• Processed foods
• Chlorinated water
• Alcoholic beverages
• Agricultural chemicals and pesticides, and…
• Antibiotics (from medications and/or antibiotics found in meat and dairy products that we ingest).
As you can see, unless you maintain a 100% organic diet, completely avoid all sugar, and lock yourself in the house in an attempt to only consume the purest of air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it is almost certain that your gut flora balance is suffering, and will continue to suffer, unless you do something to proactively correct it on a daily basis.
Can you really afford to neglect your gastrointestinal health much longer?
If you do, the likely result is dramatically increased risk for health problems and disease, failure to experience relief from any ailments you may be currently suffering from, and an inevitable, continual struggle with your weight.
With that said, it’s no wonder that research is now suggesting that supplementing with probiotics every single day is even MORE important to your health than taking a daily multi-vitamin.
Even more, a recent double blind study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that test subjects who received probiotics daily were able to reduce their abdominal fat by nearly 5 percent over a 12 week period, while the “no probiotic” group experienced no positive changes.
But here’s something you may not know…
93% of the probiotics contained in traditional probiotic supplements will be DEAD before they ever reach your gut.
And of course, dead probiotics are completely worthless.
You see, one of the greatest challenges in creating a truly effective probiotic formula is being able to actually deliver delicate probiotic cells to the gastrointestinal tract, fully intact and alive. Because probiotics are living bacteria, they are also extremely sensitive to even the slightest change in environmental conditions. In fact, research has shown that after one year on the shelf, in a sealed bottle at room temperature, on average only 32% of conventionally produced probiotics survive.
And get this, most of the probiotics products you find on store shelves are already well over a year old–some even as much as two years old. After all, big companies produce hundreds of thousands of bottles to cut cost and then store these bottles in their warehouses long before they ever end up in your hands.
But it gets worse.
Due to the extreme acidic environment of the stomach, another 80% of the remaining live probiotic cells will be killed off before reaching the intestine. In the end, traditional probiotic supplements, while claiming billions upon billions of active cells per dose, will only wind up delivering a measly 6.4% of what their label promises alive and well to your gut.
With that said, you can see how a probiotic product claiming 20 billion cells is reduced to a mere 1 billion count rather quickly.
When it all boils down, not only are these products a complete waste of your time and money, but much more importantly they are robbing you of the critically important health benefits that are the entire reason you would invest in a probiotic product in the first place.
Fortunately, there is a solution, and the answer lies in patented Microencapsulation Technology™.
Knowing the previously mentioned challenge, a company call BioTrust have developed the most advanced probiotic formula anywhere, Pro-X10™, using cutting-edge, patented Microencapsulation Technology™ developed by Italian researchers to solve this very problem.
Instead of leaving fragile probiotic cells to fend for themselves, this process encases each live cell in a lipid matrix to protect them from oxygen, light, acids, bile, and the like. The end result is dramatically enhanced survival of probiotic cells both on the shelf and through the stomach, and greatly improved delivery over traditional probiotic supplements.
Not only that, with the recommended 2 doses daily of Pro-X10™ this will allow for further enhanced absorption, effectively delivering TEN TIMES more live, healthy bacteria to your gut than traditional, non-microencapsulated probiotic products.
While most would be satisfied with the most cutting-edge delivery method and absorption rate of any probiotic product, Pro-X10™ uses the incorporation of one of the most powerful probiotic support nutrients of all time, Actazin™.
Actazin™, manufactured from New Zealand’s own superfruit, the Kiwifruit, has a four-way action on gut health:
1 . Prokinetic enzyme activity gently stimulates the movement of stool through your GI tract to help “keep you regular.”
2. Insoluble fiber further promotes regularity and softens stools without gas or bloating.
3. Prebiotics support the natural growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut to further improve your gut flora ratio.
4. Polyphenolics support beneficial bacteria, inhibit infectious pathogens, and further assist in maintaining long term digestive health
But perhaps most interesting is the fact that Actazin™ supports the regeneration of gut-lining cells, as well as enhanced gut lining protection. This means that even if the gut lining has been damaged by exposure to harmful compounds, including dangerous wheat fragments like gluten (which most people’s guts have), Actazin™ shows strong promise in being able to help heal the damage and return the gut to normal function.
Beyond that, Pro-X10™ is manufactured under a patented allergen-free manufacturing process that guarantees safe probiotic supplementation for all, even individuals with food allergies and/or food intolerances… use of this patented process is few and far between by other supplement companies.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, we even included 3 extremely unique probiotic strands not contained in 99% of other products, including:
1. Bifidobacterium lactis for constipation and inflammatory bowel relief
2. Lactobacillus salivarius for unprecedented oral health. In fact, this unique strain has been proven through research to dramatically decrease the level of plaque forming bacteria in the mouth while naturally freshening breath and reducing gum sensitivity
3. S. boulardii for unparalleled immune support, including a significant increase in mean blood cell count and a decrease in systemic inflammation, even during periods of high stress
Simply put, with research suggesting that probiotic supplementation is even more important to your health than taking a daily multi-vitamin, and the fact that inadequate probiotic levels have been linked through research to more than 170 different diseases and health issues, including obesity and weight gain, we truly believe that EVERYONE should be taking a probiotic daily.
I would like to say that I am in no way affiliated with Pro-X10, but I will provide you the URL to their website to research further. The Site is BioTrust
Hope you have received some good information on these last two posts. Next week, I will put together a couple of easy in home routines that can be completed in 15 minutes or less for those that are time challenged. Until then, have an awesome weekend!
Yours In Success,
So I usually have the great pick me up at the beginning of the week, but I decided to do something a little different…hence the title of this post.
All to often we are given all of the reasons and tools of how to achieve and get results and are only told at a passing glance of the things to stay away from and avoid. Well, I have listed the top 10 things that will for sure help you FAIL at losing weight. Take a look below and if you recognize any of these in your daily routine…eliminate it!
1. Don’t deal with emotional eating.
No matter how much weight you need to lose, you simply must face any emotional eating issues you have. This may be as simple as identifying alternative activities or as intensive as seeking professional help.
2. (Try to) follow a super-strict diet.
When diets rely on one type of food or cut out entire food groups, they’re too difficult to stick to for any length of time. Ask anyone who tried the grapefruit diet.
3. Cut back too many calories.
Calories in, calories out — the key to weight loss. But cut too many and you won’t lose weight at all thanks to the metabolism’s “starvation” mode.
4. Go it alone.
We all need someone to talk to about the dilemmas that losing weight brings us. Whether online or in the real world, create a support system that will help you through the rough patches. (Let a friend or family member know what you are doing and see if they are not willing to join you!)
5. Skip breakfast.
The old adage is true: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It will get your metabolism going and help you from getting too hungry and overeating.
6. Don’t Keep a Food Diary
How can you know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been? To get a real grasp on what, how much, and why you’re eating, keep an honest food diary for at least 10 days.
7. Set unrealistic goals.
Avoid setting goals that even the most devoted dieter couldn’t meet. Can you really cut out all sodas if you’re used to downing a 2-liter a day? Is making it three times around the track doable when you just started walking last week?
8. Weigh in every day.
Weighing in daily is a sure-fire way to give up on a diet before you’ve given it a chance. Weight fluctuates from day to day for reasons that have little to do with your efforts.
9. Exercise too much, too soon.
Overdoing it will lead you to burnout and risk overuse injuries whether it be exercising more intensely or for too lengthy a duration. (A few minutes every other day is an excellent way to begin if you’ve been sedentary.)
More: Take it Easy!
10. Go cold turkey on your favorite foods.
Swearing off your favorite foods is a definite pitfall. Doing so sets you up for binges and may leave you so frustrated, you give up your diet completely. All things in moderation (Have treats occasionally and in controlled portions!) will keep those cravings at bay.
Again, check these ten items against your eating strategy, mental fitness preparedness, fitness and nutrition plan and tweak your strategies as needed.
Thanks for reading and have an Awesome Week!
