Going to the Library to Lose Weight?

When it comes to losing weight, many women begin to struggle from April through to September. This is because the warm weather is fading, they are in the house more, and there are more family activities going on for those who have kids. These things all result in more time in the kitchen munching and crunching on food, and eating unnecessary calories, which quickly turn into extra pounds.

Is Trying to Lose Weight Through Group Competition a Good Thing?

Many women over the age of 30 carry a few more kilos than they would like. We live in an age where we seem to want to do everything either together or with an audience or by competition. There are pros and cons to trying to solve life’s problems that way. I have been involved in a weight loss group with competition and found it to have its pluses and minuses. The first problem you run into is you have a lot of people with different ideas about how the exercise program should be approached. Some people think you should walk; some people think you should run; some people think you should swim and yet others think you should work with weights. It takes some time to work through that. I would take a moment to say this is a good reason to keep the numbers in the group down.…

Fat Burning Ideas to Help You Get a Hard Body

Here are some effective, fat-burning ideas for you to add to your daily life. No endless jogging on a treadmill, no sit-ups and no bogus diet pills required. It will help you create an all-around sexy and ‘hard’ body.

Restaurants like to serve huge portions these days that will certainly sabotage your weight-loss efforts.
  2. Walking is a simple activity that burns calories and you can lose weight using walking as your sole activity. It is recommended that you also add some form of strength workouts into the mix. Combining both makes it easy to increase your fat burn rate.

How To Lose Your Baby Weight

After having two children eleven months apart, my body was suffering. The baby weight I gained between the two pregnancies wasn’t limited to just my stomach. My thighs and arms had also added weight. Losing this weight wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. A few years ago, I was a weight loss counsellor.

Instead of severely limiting only certain food groups, such as carbohydrates, I opted to follow a …

These diets do NOT work and are not meant for the human body.

What so many of us do not realise is how easy it is to find the right foods for our individual needs. Foods that we have been told for decades are bad for us!
