Hungry already? When eating today, put your fork down between bites and thoroughly chew your food. It is a effortless way to cut calories and also to enjoy your food more. No fork food for lunch? Put that sandwich down between bites for the same effect.
Here are some questions I would like for you to consider before you start your journey to looking awesome.
1. How busy is your life?- This will determine the length of time you exercise and how many days per week. Have to fit exercise into your life style, not the other way around.

You know you need between 6-8 hrs. of quality sleep each night to help your recovery from your awesome training session today. Here are some foods that will help you get there.
1.Almonds: A handful contains muscle-relaxing magnesium and sleep-inducing tryptophan, which increases the brain's level of feel-good serotonin.
2.Skim milk: Mom was right -- a warm glassful will help you sleep better. The milk's tryptophan has a sedating effect.
Remember all that advice you received(maybe even some from me) that told you to eat your carbs during the day rather than at night to avoid weight gain. Bogus
According to researchers who compared people who ate their carbs in the morning with those who ate them at night, the nighttime carb muncher's lost more body fat and experienced less hunger overall. Food for thought.
This is from 'Engineering the Alpha' by John Romaniello & Adam Bornstein. PLEASE take note. I agree with all of them.
1. Fat doesn't make you fat. It is necessary for hormonal balance.
2. Heavy weights don't make you bulky. Don't fear them, they are your friend.
3. Yoga is not for girls.
4. Muscle does not weigh more than fat. But fat does take up a lot more space than muscle.
3-4 hour period after your workout is generally the best time to indulge in the lion's share of your daily carbs. Quick digesting carbs like fruit for example
That's because for several hours after intense training, your insulin sensitivity is elevated. That means you'll store more energy in vital metabolic muscle instead of in your fat cells.
Keep that in mind.
