  11. NEVER SNACK! one exception an apple 1 hour before final meal.
  12.  Track your food; know the calories each day and everyday.

  14. Commit to know that 3500 calories equals one pound and that protein and carbs only have 4 calories per gram and fat has 9 calories per gram.

Episode 39: Let’s Look At Fat Metabolism

Ep: 39 Let’s Look At Fat Metabolism

Today’s episode is about calling forth the leverage to remind us why exercise is the key to burning fat more so than reducing fuel consumption. How many times do you hear someone say that they exercise and eat well and still do not lose any weight? Or they announce that they lost 10 pounds and turn around and gain 25 pounds back?

This is because of the need to inhale 64 pounds of oxygen to lose 22 pounds of fat. Not 22 pounds in total but 22 pounds of fat. Yeah, you read this right. That sounds crazy right?

According to Ruben Meerman, 84% of fat loss turns into carbon dioxide leaves the body via the lungs and the 16% left over becomes water which is then excreted via urine, sweat, feces, tears etc.

I thank you for listening to this geek-a-fied explanation with hopes that you will hear the benefits of movement each and everyday. Go Cardio!

Episode 25: How to Lose 15 Pounds With Tips and Tricks During the Holidays

Ep: 25 How to Lose 15 Pounds during the holidays

Today’s episode is all about making sure that you do not gain weight during the holidays and additionally how to lose 15 pounds when most everyone else is gaining weight.

There are 7 key areas that are covered; #1: Desires, tastes, smells that are pulling on us at all times.#2: Coping with life; the anxieties that come with the holidays such as additional money for gifts etc., #3: Habits around food; to include mindless eating. #4: Lack of planning what we are going to eat and therefore just grabbing something to eat which almost always leads to high calorie, high fat, low quality foods. #5:Lazy; we all allow ourselves to be lazy during the holidays and this leads to bad choices when it comes to food. #6: Lacking Motivation; we allow the people in our lives that are not wanting to lose weight or not wanting to lose weight now, influence us to put off what we can do now. They think that we will eat now, gain now and lose later. This is THE NUMBER ONE REASON the average person gains 15 pounds during the holidays. Do not allow other people to rob you from feeling good. #7: Lacking knowledge; we do not do our homework and learn how many calories we are eating and drinking. We do not learn and study what we eat and this lack of knowledge is the main reason we choose to drink a high calorie drinks or eat a high calorie meals. We just did not know.
We go over the things you can do to beat the odds and not gain weight during the holidays and how you can actually lose weight instead.
We also go over things that you can do to boost endorphins without eating to ensure that you are feeling good.

Main advice: Write down all of the foods you eat regularly and that you usually eat during the holidays. Look them up on google and know what it is costing you calorie wise before you eat or drink it.
