  • Don’t Lose Weight Just For Summer, Lose It Forever

    Don’t Lose Weight Just For Summer, Lose It Forever

    Losing weight is not a game, more specifically a “numbers game” . Don’t start counting pounds and calories to edge yourself down the scale. Being fit requires tedious and menial determination.

  • Daily Weigh-Ins are Not a Good Idea

    Daily Weigh-Ins are Not a Good Idea

    By: Saul A. Herman Don’t weigh yourself every day, it can become an obsession. Weight fluctuates due to the amount of food and drink we put into our body on a daily basis. Our moods can be affected just by seeing a bad number, a heavier weight, as the day goes on. You are not alone, many people fall into the trap of overindulging the weight scale. If you drink a full bottle of water, a pound of water can be added to your weight; If you eat a quarter pound burger, there goes your cheat meal for the day. Muscle weighs more than fat. It does not however take up the same space. Muscle is denser therefore heavier, yet takes up less mass than fat which takes up more volume ....
