  • Fat Loss Tips: Your Environment

    Fat Loss Tips: Your Environment

    Environment is the invisible hand that shapes human behavior. People with high self control tend to spend less time in tempting situations. It's easier to avoid than resist. Making sure you have set up your environment to help you be successful can be extremely helpful. Such as, making sure any foods that you struggle with are either out of the house or stored somewhere that you rarely look. If you spend time with people getting drinks all the time, then you'll find yourself drinking. If you want to cut it out or reduce it, change where you meet to somewhere that is less focused on alcohol. It can also be things such as, if you are wanting to increase your exercise habit, lay ....

  • Fat Loss Tips: Proper Way to Restrict Calories

    Fat Loss Tips: Proper Way to Restrict Calories

    When it comes to calorie restriction, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. The main goal is not truly restriction, it's actually creating a calorie deficit. A calorie deficit just means we have less calories taken into the body then calories expended. So there are 2 ways to create this deficit. 1) Pick a specific amount of calories to eat that under your basal metabolic rate (BMR) A good range is 500 calorie deficit, this will lead to a 1 lb fat loss a week. I don't recommend going up to a 1000 calorie deficit because it's hard to maintain that low of a calorie range and have energy to workout and function. Use this calculator to figure out what that calorie range would ....

  • Finish Your Plate!

    Finish Your Plate!

    Child :Mom I’m done, can I go play? Parent :Have you eaten all your food? Child :But I’m full! Parent :Finish your plate, there are starving kids who would love to have that food you are wasting. Have you ever done this? We all have because that’s the way we were raised. At one point we needed to be this way because there was a hard day on the farm ahead or because it might be a while before the next big meal. Unfortunately it is teaching our kids to ignore their natural hunger cues. We are born with the ability to know when we are actually hungry but over the years we train our kids how to not pay attention to that and eat ....

  • Fat Loss Tips: A Dash of Obsession

    Fat Loss Tips: A Dash of Obsession

    A dash of obsession is our way of saying, focus on fat loss. The reason we say a dash, is some people can become overly fixated on weight loss or fitness and that's not what we want. Too much of a good thing can go south quickly. But that little dash of obsession is what allows you to lock in, for a long enough period of time for you to get incredible results. Then when you get to that end result, it's just about living the 5 keystone habits we talked about in an earlier blog. FAT LOSS RECIPE : Zucchini Lasagna ....

    How Important is Breakfast?

From getting them up to making sure their lunch is packed, and trying to cook breakfast.

  • Fat Loss Tips: Consistency

    Fat Loss Tips: Consistency

    Consistency might be the most important word in fat loss. It honestly is the secret sauce. The idea of consistency is being awesome over 7 days at a time, 30 days in a month, 12 months in a year, 40 straight years. I know that sounds daunting but it's the honest reality, you can just be consistent for 5 days a week, for 3 months, every couple years and figure all your fat loss goals will come true. Because they won't. Most likely you won't achieve any fat loss. Quick breakdown of what consistency in fat loss is: 3 strength training workouts a week 3-4 30 min walks/activity on non-strength training days Eating on a meal plan (not a specific one, just your weekly plan you create ....

  • Supplement Spotlight: Fat Loss Stack

    Supplement Spotlight: Fat Loss Stack

    The star of the show for the month of September is our brand new fat loss supplement stack. Since fat loss (not weight loss) is a very common fitness goal, we have created a bundle of supplements that will help you reach that goal. The reason we are targeting “fat loss” rather than “weight loss” is because “weight loss” includes losing fat, muscle, bone density, and many other things (mostly things we do not want to lose). But the great thing about this stack of supplements is that in addition to helping you lose fat, it also helps build and maintain muscle. The three things in the fat loss stack are: CLA: Increases enzymes that break down fat, ....
