How to lose weight....revisted

Okay, how many blogs, newsletters, videos, books, and magazines do we need to read before we finally 'get it'?

Face it, you are still wishing for the day when you are able to eat anything you want, in any quantity, not exercise, throwing all caution to the wind.... and lose 10lbs.

Aren't you?

Liar...admit it, so am I

But the truth is, that day won't come in our lifetime or any thereafter.

The simple rules of Fat loss:

Eat Less - eat a little less than you are currently eating, approx. 250 calories a day

Move More - whatever form of exercise you find enjoyable, do that more often or longer than you currently are

Repeat - basically, be consistent. Do it everyday, following an 80 - 90% compliance rate.

MetaCardio Question & Feedback

QUESTION: I love your all of your books, but I am especially enjoying MetaCardio.
What is the best way to add MetaCardio to a fatloss program -would you add to a resistance training day? I was going to do 3 resistance days and 3 MetaCardio days --is it too much?

ANSWER: Thanks for the feedback. I don't think 3 days of MetaCardio is too much, but, I think your body will tell you if it is. 3 days of resistance training a week is great for increasing resting metabolism, and 3 days of MetaCardio on opposite days would be the maximum I would add. If you find that you are having a tough time recovering, simply cut back to 2 MetaCardios and 1 long walk (45 minutes).

Let me know how you progress!

No such thing as a stupid question, but this is close

Everyday I receive at least one question like this:

"I am looking to lose 20pounds by the end of summer because wrestling season starts and I want to wrestling the weight class of 141. what is the best way for me to lose the 20pounds?"

While the title of this post is somewhat misleading, as I don't really think there are 'stupid questions', I do think that there are 'thoughtless questions'. The answer to this and most questions where there is very little thought given by the person asking the question is, "it depends".

There are absolutely no details, it's extremely vague, so in turn, my answer will be as well. Here is it:

I don't know...

Real before and after shot!
