Losing Weight and Keeping it Off!

Healthy Food

According to a New York Times article published yesterday, people who lose more than 10% of their bodyweight burn fewer calories for any given exercise than people who haven’t lost a lot of weight, which is a pretty big shift from conventional thinking that everyone is generally the same.

This means if  you’ve lost a lot of weight, to maintain your new lower weight, you need to consume fewer calories each day than other people who haven’t lost a lot of weight. A realization that kind of sucks. Fortunately, the benefits of regular exercise are still realized, even if your weight loss goals aren’t.

There are always going to be the Ab Lounges and Flex Belts of the world. We can’t do anything about that. What we can do is educate each other about how to properly build muscle and lose weight. You don’t have to know much about fitness to know that anything that promises miracle results won’t deliver them.  More… »

Women’s Strength Training: You Won’t Bulk Up! (Unless You REALLY Want To)

One common misconception that many women have about strength training is that if you start lifting heavy weights, you will wake up one day with arms bigger than your waist.  This is absolutely not true.  Women do not end up looking like bodybuilders unless they spend years working out at a very high volume (usually while using steroids) and eat a LOT of food. Women just don’t have enough testosterone to build muscle mass the same way that men do.  If you work out regularly using heavy weights, you will end up looking leaner and more defined – not bulky.

Burnin’ Those Calories! Making Cardio Fun Again!

After finishing 30 minutes on a treadmill, I expect to walk out of the gym to find that construction projects have finished and all my friends have aged. 30 minutes on a treadmill feels like years to me, so who can blame you for dreading going to the gym if that is what you have to look forward to? Especially since you’re already busy enough?

But it’s still important to work cardio into your exercise program.  You’re never going to reach and maintain your goals if you hate the physical activity you do.  Here are some fun ways to get exercise and burn calories.
