“I’m Fat and Need Help!”

I have heard this statement a lot. I have seen it on Youtube videos, TV programs, and in magazines.

Perhaps spending a bit of money on a 3-min / day abs machine like the ab crunch (or some electric pads that you can use while you watch the TV) would be an even better way to get that ripped washboard look?

Fitness Tracking for diet and training

Fitness Tracking, Your Training And Food Intake Don't underestimate the value of fitness tracking! By tracking your progress in your diet and/ training, you will notice the result of your training or dieting sooner; this will also help you understand and appreciate the compound effect that may be working against you and give you new insights on how to get it to work in your favour.

I know that I will be okay when the celebration is over because I would no longer need to over-indulge and would be back on track with my training again. However, if you are just starting out, or you know that you always
