What’s best for helping people lose weight and get toned

Heres a video with Cindy and Lisabeth talking about food, weight loss, LIFE, and the 10DFC

They are doing a “21 day Course in weight loss”  with video’s and a blog to leave comments on

They are also coming into the studio and doing some freaking great workouts and giving me an interview & opportunity to say what I believe is best for helping people lose weight and get toned.

I think they are doing a great job on both fronts with the web videos and workouts, and appreciate all they do

here is the website

21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever by Marianne Williamson

What people don’t realize about cardio, New Years workouts

end of the month finishing up with Burprees and Press Challenge – it has been a progressive challenge this month and all around and I am very happy with everybody’s effort – I have been talking about the holiday foods and eating too much since Nov 1st and when you put in a great month of training with more weights and cardio like we have been doing then you really get to utilize that extra food energy and build your metabolism which will be very important when we get to May June and July bc then you get to show yourself off!! So while all the whimps are complaining about how fat and miserable they are the next two months and not working out or eating like they should, you don’t have to say anything to them

JUST FLEX and they will get the point

Easiest way to help people’s diet

One big problem I see among clients is under-eating at breakfast and lunch, then getting home at night after work to overindulge or “blow their diet”

One of the easiest ways to help remedy this is eating early and eating often throughout the day, experiment a little to find something that works bc what you’re doing now may not be working!!

Try to eat more fruits & vegetables in the morning & protein at lunch, stay away from extra carbs, starch, sugars & processed foods at night before you go to bed.  Use a food diary tool like #myfitnesspal to log and track micronutrients

If you need more nutrition tips or workouts message me and let me know how I can help

For people who like to run and do cardio workouts

I get bagged on a lot bc I’m a trainer who doesn’t like to do running workouts or run for fun.  Now I’m not into bodybuilding or power-lifting either (I’m a shrimp at 5″6″ 160lbs 10% body fat)  but I do appreciate people who do whatever workout it is they like to do.

I just want to help people realize their goals and help them work smarter, not harder to get where they want to be

The difference for people who like to run and do running workouts is the energy systems their body uses to get the workout done.  Its different from lifting weights.

Running is “Aerobic” (with oxygen) which utilizes fat for energy and the muscle remains catabolic in the long run.

These are people who run a lot

London marathon runners at the start line

There’s a few common things all these runners have here

  1. they run A LOT!!
  2. they burn a lot of FAT
  3. they are very lean

Nothing wrong with that, your body will respond to what ever training you give it or put it through.  Just work smarter not harder to achieve your goals

 

If you have any questions about my philosophy or post please let me know

#1 reason to lose weight and body fat

#1 Because YOU can!!!

Here are 10 reasons why you say you can’t

  1. I don’t have time
  2. I don’t have energy
  3. I don’t know what to do
  4. too lazy/scared to ask for help
  5. my Boss won’t let me
  6. good t.v. shows on
  7. my joints hurt
  8. my spouse/kids come first
  9. wont give up sugar/sweets
  10. I’m embarrassed of myself in front of people and too mentally/socially weak to change

Today’s the day to make your decision to change your lifestyle and habits.  It doesn’t have to happen in 3 days, give yourself time to make small changes that add up to big results.  Don’t wait for a health scare like diabetes, heart attack, stroke to get you going, make it happen NOW

Real weight loss – this is not a fad

this is real weight loss – it happens over time, you have to eat, you have to workout, you have to recover and then do it again (congrats SuzanN!!)
