How to find the right diet?

Human genome is extremely complex and so unique that each persons blue print on dieting along with psychological perception of stress, emotions and food can NOT be summed up in a meal plan or a diet. What may seem to be an "optimal " diet approach that works for most is not looking into the outliers (we all have our own unique outliers) and what's worse the prevalence of obesity in US (36% obese adults and 17% obese youth - CDC 2015 statistics).

The Principle of Specificity: Unstable surface training with Swiss/Stability/Bosu Ball and what is the point?

Swiss ball which is also called the Stability ball was originally created in 1960's as a means to provide instability and resistance by challenging and engaging "CORE" muscles, therefore, improving balance, strength and flexibility.

You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine. Learning to distinguish the need to eat to nourish your body vs. the need to comfort, reward, and provide therapy for your body will allow you to live and experience the world in a whole new dimension. Dieting is a short term solution for a long term problem. More than 90% of dieters will regain their weight back within 2 years. The problem that is NOT being addressed is the underlying reason why you are overfat and the deprivation/binge/purge/repeat mindset.

Acutely, that is a good thing; chronically, a raised coritsol level will cause weight gain.Get your hormones under control with the healthy choices most of the time. Did you read that correctly? Make healthy choices most of the time as opposed to all of the time. Now you need to be honest with yourself to be sure you are following a healthy lifestyle.
