Here is a good article for you:

Losing weight is extremely simple as long as you follow basic principles. All that is required is that you follow the right diet, exercise regularly, and have the motivation to commit to reaching your goals. Here are some top tips that will help you to achieve your goals gradually and effectively.

TIP ONE – The first thing that you need to do is evaluate your current diet. By now everyone should be aware of what they can and cannot eat if they want to maintain a healthy physique. Spend some time researching online and talking to health professionals about the sort of diet that will help you achieve your goals.

TIP TWO – It is not only what you eat, but how you eat as well. You should try to make sure that you eat roughly 6 meals each day. Instead of eating three square meals a day, cut each of these portions in half and separate them by every two or three hours. This will get your metabolism firing on all cylinders.

TIP THREE – Evaluate how much water you drink. Drinking at least eight glasses of water each and every day is very important. Not only will this help you to wash away the fat cells that you burn off, but it will also help you to avoid cravings as well. Most people only consume two or three glasses and this is woefully insufficient.

TIP FOUR – Exercise on a regular basis. Everyone knows that exercise is important in helping you to lose weight. If you don’t like regular exercise routines such as jogging, try to incorporate sports that you enjoy into your lifestyle. If you really want to see significant results then consider incorporating a high-intensity interval training routine into your daily schedule.

TIP FIVE – Build lean muscle. Regardless of whether you want to build muscle or not, simply adding a bit of lean muscle will certainly help you become more effective at burning off fat. Muscle burns calories far more effectively than fat and, therefore, the more lean muscle you have, the more effective your body will be at burning fat during your daily activities.

These simple tips really should help you to achieve your goals. One thing that people do struggle with is motivation and as such it may be a good idea for you to hire a personal training coach to help you keep on the straight and narrow.

If you are looking to burn fat and think that a personal training coach will help you do so, go to now for some excellent tips and guidance.

Before & After

Welcome to my blog about making Diet and Nutrition more fun!

75% of all Americans have weight to lose.  It’s a fact.  If you had to carry 2 gallons of milk around all day you’d get tired, right?  Your back would hurt.  Your knees would begin to hurt. Most of us carry around more extra weight than 2 gallons of milk weigh.  So imagine how much relief your body would feel to lose that weight…or more?  Pretty nice!

I live in the Midwest.  It seems once the weather begins to get cold all the food related holidays begin.  First Halloween, followed by the hugest meal ever….Thanksgiving!  Then we have a month of cookies, pies, parties with alcohol laden drinks…and what does that spell?  An extra 10 lbs for me, that’s for sure!

So– Diet is usually a 4 letter word to most of us. How can we make the Holidays fun without the pressure of not eating?  This little blog will supply you with articles, tips, recipes and more to get you through the holidays (and the year) so you can still have fun yet not pack on the pounds.


Stay tuned for some fun diet/nutrition info!

Eating vegetables is good for you. But the way you prepare them can destroy most of the nutrients your body craves. Some vitamins and minerals can be sensitive to heat from cooking. Microwaving is not the preferred method as it has not yet been determined how microwaving effects nutrients. The way we prepare our vegetables is important so we can enjoy eating them, yet not destroy their nutritional value.

Here are some great tips!  Try them and let me know what is your favorite.
