Try to avoid yo yo dieting with this simple, effective and logical idea. You must use up more calories than you take in. Since one pound of fat equals 3,500 calories, you need to reduce your calorie intake by 500—1000 calories per day to lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week (a healthy amount of weight to lose). To find out how many calories you use up each day then please get in contact.

Millions of us guzzle litres of fizzy drinks every year. Fizzy drinks and squash have gone from being an occasional treat to becoming a beverage that is consumed daily, even replacing water for many people. A typical can of regular Coke contains over 9 teaspoons of sugar, that is 39 grams of sugar. The recommended daily allowance of sugar, according to the American Heart Association, is 6 teaspoons for women and 9 teaspoons for men. Just a single can of Coke takes you over your daily allowance.


1/4 cup fresh mint
1/2 cup strawberries, sliced
1/2 orange, sliced
16 ounces filtered water

1. Place all fruits and herbs into the mason jar.
2. Fill to top with water.
3. Seal mason jar tightly and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator.

Vodka Soda

Ingredients: Vodka, Soda water
Vodka averages 96 calories per 1.5 ounces. Soda water, of course, has no calories. However, there is no nutritional value in this drink whatsoever.

Whiskey and Gin

Ingredients: Various
Guess what? Flavour isn’t bad for you! Forget the vodka. Bourbon generally ranges between 97 and 110 calories per 1.5 ounces (depending on the brand). So you get more flavour for a small handful more calories. It’ll be a way more satisfying experience, and it won’t leave you hollow and empty (like the vodka-soda).


Ingredients: Grapes
A bit of wine is actually pretty good for you. Red wine packs in a ton of nutritional value. It contains four to nine percent of your DRI (Daily recommended Intake) of iron, 9.4 percent for potassium, and five percent of magnesium. But it is also filled with calories, so only a small glass now and again.


Ingredients: water, barley, roast malt extract, hops, and brewer’s yeast
Guinness used to have a slogan: “Guinness is good for you!” Well, it really kinda is. First off, despite how thick it is, it’s way lower in calories than you think—128 calories per 12 ounces. Not bad. Because it’s made from more whole grains than lager (especially mega-brewery stuff), it’s full of nutrients. In fact, it’s been shown to have similar antioxidant properties to red wine.


Ingredients (may include): Red wine, lemon, cut oranges, lime, sugar, orange juice, gin, triple sec, apples, raspberries, strawberries, oranges, etc.
This isn’t low-calorie, but it has a lot of other things going for it. There are literally thousands of sangria recipes out there, so look for ones that use more fruit and less sugar. This is a great way to get a serving of fruit.

Bloody Mary

Ingredients: Vodka, tomato juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, celery, salt, and pepper.
This could be classed as the ‘healthiest’ of them all. It’s very low calorie and it packs in a ton of nutrients.

As you know, your daily protein intake plays an absolutely crucial role in terms of the overall health and function of your body, if you want to lose fat, build muscle or increase performance in virtually any capacity, protein (and how much of it you eat per day) becomes even more important.

Person, Situation & Goals Ideal Daily Protein Intake
Average healthy sedentary adult (male or female) that does NOT work out or have any related goals. This is just what I consider to be a good minimum daily protein intake for general health/function. 0.5-0.7 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
Average healthy adult (male or female) that IS doing some form of exercise regularly or IS trying to improve their body (lose fat, build muscle, etc.). This is the minimum I’d recommend in this case. 0.8-1 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
Average healthy adult FEMALE whose primary goal is building muscle, getting “toned,” maintaining muscle while losing fat, increasing strength or improving performance. 1-1.2 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
Average healthy adult MALE whose primary goal is building muscle, getting “toned,” maintaining muscle while losing fat, increasing strength or improving performance. 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
