If you diet has 3 these foods you can gain weight by only eating a little.1. Pasta - a moderate 1 and 1/2 cups of most pastas yield more than 60 grams of carbs and almost 350 calories.2.

Weight loss and gain are driven by hormones. Insulin is the hormone you need to get under control if you want to burn fat and lose weight.

Greg Robins from Cressey Performance coined this term this morning in his blog. A increase in work (training) means you need to increase your recovery to see greater progress. Work does include all those outside stressors( family, lack of sleep, work). What does that mean for you? If you have a great training session but you return late from work and your child wakes up during the night ill, please take a extra day to recover. Your body will thank you.
