Can This Simple Trick Help You Achieve Your Health Goals?

When most of us decide to get fit, lose weight, or achieve some other goal related to our health, we tend to focus on the “how”. We create an eating plan or workout schedule, or otherwise craft a regimen that we believe will lead to our success. And those things are certainly important!

What Do Your Cravings Really Mean?

When you’re following a weight loss plan, or working to maintain your weight, cravings can be one of your biggest challenges. Most people can’t rely upon willpower forever.

However, in many cases a craving is actually a sign of something other than hunger. When you learn to decode your body’s signals, it can be easier to replace old habits (giving into cravings) with new ones (giving your body what it is actually asking for). Read more

Sticking to Your Fitness Plan on Weekends

For most of us, the five-day work week provides structure. Even if feeling over-scheduled isn’t exactly fun, simply having a schedule helps you to stay on track toward your fitness and weight loss goals.

Then the weekend arrives, and most of us feel tempted to procrastinate. We sleep til noon, snack throughout the day, and by Sunday evening we realize we’ve indulged in way too much Netflix. Whoops! You certainly don’t mean to backtrack every weekend, but it happens quite frequently. Read more

It’s a story we hear all the time: My husband and I decided to embark on a weight loss journey together. In the first month, I saw him cheat on the meal plan at least four or five times. I never cheated once.

It’s not fair! Why do men have an easier time with weight loss?  Read more

The 15-Minute Workout

Ask 100 people why they don’t work out regularly, and you will receive a variety of answers.  However, one reason will probably be more common than all the rest:  many people will tell you that they simply don’t have time for exercise.

When we think of “exercise” most of us picture long jogs, a minimum of an hour spent in the gym, or fitness classes that don’t always (or ever) work with our schedules. The truth is that you can actually cram a workout into just 15 minutes! Read more

Should You Tweak Your Strength Training Workout?

If you’ve added strength training to your workout routine, we’re happy to hear it. Building lean muscles is one of the best ways to boost metabolism and weight loss, and also benefit your health overall.

However, it’s possible that you’re making a common mistake. Many weight training newbies set up a prescribed workout (such as one recommended by a friend or featured in a magazine) and then they never change that workout. This is a mistake, because over time your muscles will get stronger. They need more of a challenge, and you’re probably getting bored as well. Read more
