If you've caused metabolic damage as a result of following starvation diets or losing weight too rapidly in the past, it can be extremely difficult to achieve any further fat loss at all. The good news is, metabolic damage can be repaired. All it takes is the right combination of metabolism stimulating exercise and metabolism stimulating nutrition (NOT just a diet), all done consistently over time. The big irony is that most of the diet programs that claim to help you get rid of excess weight, only end up making it

Nothing says Rio de Janeiro like coconut juice. Cariocas are among the world’s biggest consumers of green coconut juice, which that is sold from street corners and plazas to famed beaches like Copacabana and Ipanema. Did you know that Coconut is high in natural saturated fats. Saturated fats not only increase the healthy cholesterol (known as HDL cholesterol) in your body, but also help convert the LDL “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterol.The big takeaway is to practice caution and moderation when it comes to coconut oil, and be extra careful if

Peanut butter in it's most natural form gives you fibre, vitamins and minerals (including 200 milligrams of potassium), and other nutrients. Unsalted peanut butter, with 5 milligrams of sodium, has a terrific potassium-to-sodium ratio. Peanut butter also contains an abundance of "good" fats, or, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. One serving has 8 grams of monounsaturated fats and 4 grams of polyunsaturated fats. These "good" fats help lower cholesterol, reduce heart disease, and lower blood pressure. Mayver’s pure-state Dark Roasted Crunchy Peanut Butter is super packed with essential vitamins minerals — including

In this article we'll continue to investigate why 96% of all weight loss efforts end in failure, and how you can be among the 4% who succeed. 1. Weight Loss Success Is NOT About What You're Eating -- But What's Eating You Losing weight and keeping it off has nothing to do with what you're eating, how much of it you're eating, or how often you're eating it. The truth is that weight loss success is not about food at all. In fact, it's not about anything physical. That's why physically-based approaches

Success is a consistent pattern more than it is an isolated event. It is the way you live rather than some object or experience you acquire. In fact, the way to truly have success is to be success just like my client Frank who dropped 9kgs in 4 weeks. Success is yours when you persistently embody the discipline, the integrity, the positive attitude, the respect and all the other attributes of which it is made. With Frank we used Visualisation tactics of himself as a living, breathing, active and dynamic manifestation of

Here are four ways to overcome food guilt and shame to cultivate a better relationship with food once and for all: Because food is a huge part of our social lives, it’s not realistic to skip happy hours, birthdays, weddings and almost every event. If you catch yourself feeling guilt or shame,  first come up with a compassionate response: “It’s OK that I ate in front of the TV after dinner.” Then reaffirm your commitment to your goals: “Tomorrow, it’s really important for me to not eat in front of the TV. After dinner,

Emotional eating is such an unconscious act, they often don't even realise they're doing it. For many of us, that mindless munching can sabotage even the best-laid healthy-eating plan. While it isn't realistic to think you can banish every single emotional eating episode, it is possible to cut back on this behavior. But you first need to understand WHY your emotions are making you indulge in the first place. I’m hopeful these 4 tips help you accomplish this… 1. What triggers your emotions? Identify your emotional triggers, the situations and encounters with others in your

We tell our client's that you can eat all the right foods at the right times, but if you’re eating too much, it’s going to be tough to lose fat. So, I want you to work on the following strategy to ensure that you have the right portions at each meal just like our client.   Dish each of your meals up using the “Fist/Palm/Thumb Rule” (see explanation below) and then do one of the following: 1. IF YOU START TO FEEL FULL before you’ve finished all the food on your plate, simply

You don’t have to look too far to see the latest diet gimmicks promising quick and easy weight loss. To set things straight, we’ve debunked some of the most popular weight-loss tricks that frequently backfire EATING “CLEAN” ALL OF THE TIMESwearing off sweets and junk food, eliminating processed foods and getting back to the basics with nutrition all sound like a great game plan – and it’s what many aspire to do; however, eating this way 100% of the time just isn’t realistic for the long haul. Instead of setting unachievable eating

Push-ups: Is the one body weight chest exercise to rule them all. I like to cranks quick and fast reps at least 60 reps in around a minute in total in as few sets as possible. Do as many as you can and rest briefly, if needed, and then continue riding the gain train.  Tip: Note that push-ups on kettle bells really burn the muscle out, "This will give you that blood flow and extra pump."

For Margarita she developed great back muscles as a late bloomer we thought we would share some of her great tips Train your back at least once per week, if not twice. Remember, we want to build a balanced, symmetrical physique. So if you've been skipping back day, it's time to re-focus. I always use straps on my back days to take my grip, my forearms, and my biceps out of the exercises as much as possible. I also like to use hooks for rowing movements. I definitely have some intense

The pump is the short-term sensation you experience during training when your muscles fill up with blood faster than the blood can leave the area, making the muscles appear fuller and larger. It's a tight, swelled feeling, often accompanied by an increase in vascularity. Pump workouts generally involve medium (8-12) or higher (13-20+) repetitions, supersets/trisets/giant sets, and/or brief rest intervals between sets. You'll hear some strength coaches and functional training experts knock pumping workouts because they claim pumping is cosmetic only and emphasizes "form over function." That may be true, however,

This was a question I was asked over the phone on a recent inquiry ! Of course I answered . Just be sure you have a dietary-induced calorie deficit. Is it the best way? Not by a long shot. We've known for some time that when you restrict calories, your level of non exercise physical activity (non exercise activity thermogenesis or NEAT), drops spontaneously, even if you don't realize it's happening. Your physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE) also tends to drop when you restrict calories. Basically, when you cut calories, you get sluggish, you
