No such thing as stubborn fat. How to rid of it.

There’s no such thing as stubborn body fat. Your fat doesn’t have a mind of it’s own. It’s not resistant to change. Your fat isn’t stubborn, you are.

Cardio is unnecessary for weight loss

Back when I wanted to lose weight, I would pick up magazines, which seemed to only feature thin women who ran marathons. I didn’t want to run, and thought that the only way I could lose weight was to run long distances daily. I figured that since running is a cardiovascular activity, I may be […]

Excessive protein = a big belly

Too much of anything can be harmful. Drinking too much water can lead to death (called hyponatremia); pushing past your limits during exercise, even if you’re extremely fit, can lead to a fast death (called rhabdomyolysis); and too much protein converts to fat, or may even cause a distended-looking belly.

Lose weight by changing your bedtime

My new diet caused my hair to fall out & change

Normally I wear my curly hair down, but I decided to blow dry it straight and put it in a pony tail. What alarmed me was how thin my hair was. My hair has been really thick my whole life. On a recent visit to my hairdresser, she asked, “Why is your hair so thin? […]
