Are you larger today than ever before? It’s no secret that the size of the average adult has expanded over the last forty years…and studies show that potion sizes have grown right along with us. Researchers from New York University found that average portion sizes started to grow in the 1970’s, rising quickly in the 1980’s, and this phenomenon hasn’t shown signs of slowing. And it doesn’t stop there. Check out these eye-opening figures, provided by the National Institutes of
Ready to get started building a more flexible you? Here’s how… 1) Use a Foam Roller 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 musc
Have you ever wondered if those minutes you spend working out at home or in the gym are burning fat or just time?

I find it shocking that so many well-meaning folks are still exercising with such outdated notions of what constitutes an effective workout. I Don't Want That To Be You.

Your diet has a huge impact on your weight loss results. There’s no way around it! And if you’re eating many of your meals out at restaurants, or ordering takeout, then you’re going to want to keep reading because the average restaurant meal contains more than 1,200 calories.

There used to be a time when very few adults included strength training in their fitness routine. It was thought of as extreme, unnecessary and even dangerous. Strength training is when resistance is used to challenge your muscles in order to gain strength and endurance. It can be performed with traditional weights, exercise bands, medicine balls, cable machines, sandbags, kettlebells or even just using your own body weight. Times have certainly changed as a multitude of stre
Would you like to be 50 pounds lighter just 12 months from now? Can you image how you would look? You’d look like a whole new, younger person. It’s actually much easier than you think, and I’m not talking about invasive, costly surgery, or grueling routines. All it takes is losing one pound each week. One single pound. Let’s break it down mathematically. A pound is 3,500 calories—spread that over 7 days and you need a 500-calorie deficit each day to lose 1 pound in a week. Yo

Getting fit and healthy can be a challenge for a number of complex reasons that go deeper than simply calories-in versus calories-out. What you associate with “pain” and “pleasure” may be blocking your fitness success. You’re avoiding the WRONG pain. We are programmed to avoid pain and to seek out pleasure. Unfortunately, this can block your fitness success if you view healthy diet and exercise as pain to be avoided. Do you cringe at the thought of exercise? Does the idea of

Let’s face it, getting and staying fit and healthy is hard work. There’s all the effort that you have to put out in making wholesome meals. There’s the will power that you must muster in avoiding unhealthy (TASTY!) foods. There’s the energy that it takes to get out of bed early to get in a workout before the day begins. There’s the struggle to lace up your shoes at the end of a long day to head out and be active rather than diving into the comfort of the couch. To be fit and
If you get fat are you doomed to stay fat? According to a study conducted in the UK in 2015, less than 1% of the formerly obese will maintain weight loss for more than a year. Specifically, this broke down to just 1 man out of 210 and 1 woman out of 124. Participants in the study were told to eat less and move more, a method that failed to deliver long-term results. Clearly this sound bite advice wasn’t enough. Now I could launch into a debate over whether or not this study p

Your basic ab crunch is good, but isn’t the only effective way to get toned abs. It simply doesn’t activate your core muscles to the extent that other exercises do, it can sometimes hurt your back, and the small motion doesn’t do much by way of calorie burning. So why are you still just doing crunches? What the basic ab crunch does have going for it is its no-equipment, on-the-go nature. You could plop down onto the ground in a park, a hotel room, at the beach or at the gym
