5 Mistakes That Will Make You Fat

Count me guilty. I’ve done at least every one of these, and I’m not ashamed of it. I’ve realized that it’s a part of the culture we’ve all grown up in. Sometimes it’s sheer laziness. Either way, these 5 things will make it very difficult for you to achieve your fitness goals. Are you guilty of any of them?

1.) Not Eating. It’s ironic that I consider this to be the number one mistake you can make if you’re trying to lose fat. After all, you’re supposed to be taking in less food, not more, so doesn’t it kind of make sense to skip a few meals?

Not at all. The problem isn’t eating. You need to eat. It’s just that when we eat, we tend to eat too much, and what we eat usually isn’t very good for us. The problem only gets worse when we’re hungry. That’s when we lose all control and devour whatever is in front of us. If you haven’t prepared anything ahead of time, it’ll probably be junk food.Continue reading

How To Eat Healthy With A Crazy Schedule

If there’s one thing that will never change about eating healthy, it’s this. You have to cook, and you have to cook a lot. There’s no way around it. The good stuff is the stuff you make at home with fresh ingredients, and the bad stuff is pre-packaged and processed. Simple as that.

I find it funny that so many people I know avoid healthy food choices, not because they don’t taste good, but because they require so much preparation. We live in a go go go world, and most people don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen.

Fair enough. I don’t either. I’m a very busy guy too, and that’s why I’ve learned how to adapt my healthy eating habits to my hectic and sometimes downright impossible schedule. With a few small adjustments to your ordinary cooking schedule, you can too.Continue reading

Skinny Fat – Are You Showing The Symptoms?

Do you suffer from the skinny fat syndrome? I personally was affected by the skinny fat syndrome for years and years until I finally decided to make some changes and take control of my health and fitness. For the longest time I didn’t even realize I was skinny fat. Everyone around me told me I was “skinny” and that I didn’t need to exercise. I even believed them because I wasn’t overweight or obese so I was healthy right? Absolutely not! I was among the 30 MILLION Americans who suffer from the skinny fat syndrome and I didn’t even know it. Luckily, there is a cure for this self induced ailment which I will be revealing to you in this blog post.
