Exercise, Good Nutrition, Supplementation = Fat Loss

Copyright © 2008 Charles Carter

We know here at LIVE that exercise is the most effective method for instantly boosting metabolism. When weight loss is desired, combining exercise, proper diet and use of appropriate supplements naturally leads to maximum metabolic efficiency and the greatestg chance of results.

Both are absolutely essential. Effective diet which can include supplement intake should be your No. 1 priority. Here's why: Both your ability to exercise and your exercise results will naturally accelerate in the presence of proper nutrition. We tell the people that we are wokring with the 75% of your success will come from the nutrition side. Without proper diet, you won't be able to effectively access energy stores, nor will you be able replace nutrients lost during exercise. When that happens, metabolism declines. We have wonderful fat loss aids here at LIVE, like Yellow Subs, and we want you to take them when you are giving your body the best opportunity for results!

We deal with a lot of people who go to the gym almost religiously. Often, they spend hours working out, and still, over the course of months, they show little or no progress. Every day, they are there huffing and puffing - but they're still overweight in spite of their efforts. We also know people who work out far less and make amazing progress, and still others who maintain a healthy, lean look without even trying. Again, it can come down to the effective use of good diet with that exercise and the use of supplements that ensure the optimal delivery of nutrients for the goal, like Leukic by Muscletech.

Naturally, genetics are a key factor. But so is metabolism, and metabolism is inherently dependent on how you treat your body. If you attempt to exercise intensively without supporting your body's nutritional needs, you won't get very far.

Rest and relaxation, too, are every bit as important as action. Remember that under chronic stress or exhaustion, your body's nervous system (and thus your metabolism) suffers. Avoid compulsively long daily exercise routines. Instead, vary your workouts, including short, intense training sessions in the mix.

Many popular health gurus recommend moderate exercise, such as walking or gardening, as the best solution. Their reasoning is that moderate exercise puts less pressure on the body and the heart. Certainly, gentle exercise is good for you, and it results in less oxidation and fewer free radicals than intensive exercise, but it also limits the challenges you can approach and the level of fitness you can achieve.

I believe the best way to exercise is by providing your body with intense stimuli to which it will naturally adapt. Our body has the wisdom to adjust to physical strain by getting stronger and tougher. Through this adaptative process, the body improves it's own metabolic state.

Intense and short exercise intervals are also effective in pumping blood and oxygen to the entire body. Maximum oxygenation helps rejuvenate all body tissues and, again, this helps boost overall metabolism. A great Supplement that we sell that is perfect to help with short, intense bursts of energy is Cold fusion EX by LG Sciences.

If you haven't been exercising regularly and strenuously, don't try to force yourself to exercise with maximum intensity straight out of the gate. Instead, follow a constructive exercise routine in which you gradually increase intensity over a period of weeks or months. This is where the use of an online personal trainer comes into play.

Nourish your body, exercise intensely and get enough rest, and you can quickly reach a state of maximum metabolic efficiency. In this state, your body will efficiently burn body fat as fuel. Its base level of energy utilization will accelerate, and gradually, this will cause your body to naturally redesign itself.

When you reach maximum metabolic efficiency, you are literally re-creating yourself - at a cellular level - on an ongoing basis. Just because you weren't born with a super-fast metabolism doesn't mean you can't possess one. And just because you are carting around extra fat right now doesn't mean you have to keep it forever.

If you want to live in a young, vigorous, lean body, just give your body what it needs in order to reach a peak metabolic state: Eat well, exercise intensely, get enough rest. Most importantly, get to know your body from the inside out. Enjoy its power, respect its complexity, and it will repay you richly. offers real live support with their online fitness trainer programs, and discount prices on top nutritional products like Megadrine.

Why Weight Loss Resolutions Don't Work

If you're like many people out there, you've promised yourself to do something different this year. Probably to drop a few pounds by eating better, exercising more and living a healthier lifestyle.

And if you're like a good number of people who made themselves a promise, you may have already broken it - you may not have made it a week or through the month of January.

Even if you have stayed faithful to your promise so far, chances are all your good intentions will go out the window before you live up to your resolution...

That's why I don't make resolutions any more.

I set goals instead.

Here's the difference:

Resolutions usually don't work. Goals do.

Here's why:

Resolutions aren't specific enough. They also tend to be absolute and rigid.

Resolutions tend to sound like this:

I will eat better this year.

Sounds like a great idea, doesn't it? But, what does "better" mean? If you eat one less Cheeto or French fry over 365 days, have you stuck to your resolution? I don't think so. And, if you count that as success, you're just cheating yourself.

So, you've failed. Because "eating better in 2008" means to be perfect for the whole year. Hey, the first time a slice of pizza or piece of candy passes your lips - your resolution is a goner - better luck next year.

Goals, on the other hand, when written (note that term!) the right way are specific and have a specific time attached to them. That's what makes them powerful.

A goal might look like this:

I will weigh 175 by March 1, 2008.

Now you have a measurable goal and a time frame in which to do it.

But, here's the real magic in goals. If you don't reach that weight by that date... no problem. Simply extend the date (and you don't have to wait all the way until the next January one).

Will you have failed if you get down to your goal weight by April 1st instead? Or May? Or June? I think not.

And what if you only make 176 by the first of March? Is that so bad? I'll bet you made a lot more progress than you would have without goals...

Most times, resolutions set you up to fail because they require you to be perfect.

Goals set you up for success because they are fluid and flexible - they allow you to be human while still moving forward - as long as you keep the target in your sights.

If you've set resolutions already - change them to goals.

If you haven't set anything yet... well, you get the picture.

Heed this advice and have your best year ever. Ignore it and you'll watch another year pass you by without getting where you want to go.

Lose 10 Pounds In A Week

By A.J. Lisandro

Do you have a reunion to attend in a few weeks or even a week? Are you gearing up for spring break or summer and want to shed some weight before you hit the beach or the pool? Want to lose 10 pounds in a week? What ever your reason is I am here to tell you that it is possible and the great thing is you will not have to starve yourself.

The plain and simple fact of the matter is, if you plan on losing weight then you just need to burn more calories than you take in. However, there are other little tips and tricks that I have that will help you burn more fat off and hopefully help you to drop off that excess weight so you can fit into that bathing suit, dress or for the guys – those new slacks.

The first thing that you should start doing is drinking more water. You will notice a huge difference if the majority of fluids you drink is soda or coffee. Your body is very smart, so if you are not drinking a lot of water it will retain water, hence that bloated feeling you get and that extra layer of water weight around your waistline. Get ample water and make sure you are not carrying that excess water weight with you. Keeping hydrated is also a key factor if you intend on exercising to lose weight.

Eat smaller more frequent meals to shoot your metabolism through the roof. Much like your body retaining water if it is not getting enough of it, your body’s metabolism will go into conservation mode if you are only eating a few large meals a day. Are you always rushing out of the house in the morning and skipping breakfast? Are you only eating a large lunch and dinner? If you are, my guess is you have trouble losing weight. The reason is because your body slows your metabolism down because it knows you are only eating twice a day. Eating five to six smaller meals a day will have the exact opposite effect and will have you burning fat faster.

Pump up your cardio work. How do you do this? By making small changes in your daily routine. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park in a stall further away and get the extra walking in, go for a walk on your lunch break. Also, get some time in the morning or afternoon for 20-30 minutes of cardio work. Whether that be walking, jogging, running or biking, make sure to get yourself going and burning extra calories. Working out in the morning on an empty stomach also has a great effect, as it burns fat faster.

Following these three tips will give you the best chance at losing weight as quickly as possible. If you want to lose 10 pounds in a week, just be smart about it and do not sacrifice your health by going on a crash diet or popping fat burners for the sake of vanity. Take the right steps and you will be slipping into that new dress or slacks in no time!
