Collected Fitness Wisdom #31

Some trainers just suck. Like the ones who just tell their clients to go for a walk. That's the exercise equivalent of calling yourself a nutritionist and telling your starving client to go steal sugar packets from Dunkin Donuts.

I find it interesting that so many women will spend hours on "ab" specific exercises wishing, hoping and praying that this alone will help burn the belly fat...and thinking the more they feel "the burn" the more they are burning.

Okay...you need to know that you simply cannot choose where your body loses the fat. This is called "spot reduction" and it is a myth. And really if you have this much time to spend on exercises like these - you DO have the time to double or
triple your results when spend your time on more effective exercises as you change the way you workout.

Common sense and scientific research lead us to the conclusion that if we want healthy bodies we must put the right raw materials in them: real; whole, local; fresh; unadulterated; unprocessed; and chemical-, hormone- and antibiotic-free food. There is no role for foreign molecules such as trans fats and high-fructose corn syrup, or for industrially developed and processed food that interferes with our biology at every level.

That is why I believe the most important and the most powerful tool you have to change your health and the world is your fork.

I have GREAT news for you ladies! The last thing you should do to get the body of your dreams is 2 hours of cardio a day and starve yourself. The goal is to get the metabolism revving by eating more healthy foods and increasing lean tissue and taking advantage of the afterburn effect you get after a weight training routine or an interval session. No workout should last longer than an hour to get this afterburn effect.

That’s right- do less, eat more and get the body you always wanted!
