Losing another pound!

Its a beautiful day! Go out and get 30 minutes of fun activity!

Take a look at a new research study from the journal,
“Obesity” - Exercise Training Prevents Regain of Visceral Fat for 1 Year Following Weight Loss.

Researchers studied 97 women. They were put on an 800 kcal per day diet and lost 12.3kg - that’s a lot of weight! After the weight loss, these women were put into 2 groups - control (no exercise group)and the other cardio/resistance training group. the exercise groups did 2 workouts per week of 40 minutes.

After one year, it was found that the folks who stuck to their exercise program and went back to prrevious diet only gained back about 3.5kg, but the non-exercise group gained back 6kg.

So the study showed that both cardio and resistance training helped limit weight regain.
Of course, in a perfect world, these subjects wouldn’t have gained back any weight, but at least exercise helped them keep it off. So there are 3 lessons here…

1) Diet plus exercise is most powerful
2) Consistency is king
3) It doesn’t have to be cardio - resistance training is also effective.

I've been getting these amazing new updates every week from Kari...
"ok, so for the past year i have been doing 6 days a week of cardio and have been stuck at 130#. After my first week I lost one pound! I know its not much but its past my plateau and this was after my one cheat meal you allowed me!!!!I'm excited. Hopefully i will get to 115# without working out so much Thanks Bobby! here's my food journal:"

And then the next week..."down another 1.5lbs this week!!!! Ive been telling you all last week about doing steady state b/c i was getting the itch again that more cardio isbetter. Well i held to no steady state and have stuck with justdoing weights/circuits with you on mon,wed,fri and then on tues/thurs doing Intervals. I can't believe that i'm losing weight by working out less! my diet is as follows:"

And finally, just yesterday she wrote..."down another pound this week. I'm now at 116! One more pound andi've reached my goal and i've got plenty of time to spare before my reunion!"

*How cool is that?!I get so excited when I hear these success stories...

Transforming your body is all about quality training and whole,natural food nutrition.


Have you heard of fitness bootcamp workouts?

You’ve probably heard me mention them recently, but I’ve just discovered a surprising new benefit to these types of workouts (and ALL partner and group workouts in general).

In a recent issue of the Economist, I stumbled across an article reporting this…
“Research shows that if you train with others, you can endure more discomfort and you can train harder.”

That means more results, and it’s just one more reason why you should be training in a bootcamp - or at least with a partner.

The right training partner and environments are crucial for success.
