Eating healthily is not more or less expensive than eating unhealthily now, but think about which lifestyle choice will rack up the health care bills later down the line!
Fat loss is systemic, it is impossible to focus on one particular area of fat to lose!
This is one of my favourite exercises! It works predominantly your core muscles but you also need to engage your legs to lift them up off the ground and your arms also to hold a dumbbell or kettlebell up in front of you.
Sit on the floor or a mat with your legs stretched out in front of you. Pick up the dumbbell / kettlebell and hold it above your waist while in the seated position. Raise your feet about 6 inches off the floor and proceed to perform a twisting motion with your upper body so you end up touching the ground either side you with the weight. Perform 20-30 reps about 2-3 times with a 30 second rest in between.
Carbohydrates, protein, fat and alcohol each have 4, 4, 7 and 9 calories per gram respectively.
Exercise and training doesn’t have to mean getting up early before dawn, rushing to the gym and training for an hour or longer! It can be anything from as simple and relaxing as walking to your local park, a light jog or even playing with your kids or dog! Anything is better than nothing, there isn’t an excuse not to move!
You need to burn around 3,500 calories in order to lose 1 pound of fat!
You may think that purchasing all the latest equipment like space age gelled shoes and specially insulated yet breathable tops may give you a big advantage, but there’s not much else you could really achieve wearing those than say a comfy pair of flat running shoes and a baggy old t-shirt. It’s only up to you and your body of what you can really achieve!
