2013 Goals Should Not be the Same as 2012

Make sure you are taking care of the basics. There is no need (or use) in looking for advanced methods if you have not mastered the basics.

Stop playing the weight loss game and get into fat loss.

If you are still using a scale to measure your progress in body change, it will be virtually impossible to know what kind of weight you are losing. Just because you are losing weight does not mean you are losing fat. Too often it is not fat that people are losing but rather water or even worse, muscle. This leads to yo-yo dieting and weight rebound.

A loss of muscle will make the metabolism less efficient in the long run. This is a key reason why chronic dieters have a more difficult time getting any sort of result as they age. To avoid this issue get something to monitor fat loss.

All weight loss is not good weight loss.
All weight gain is not bad weight gain.

Use the correct measurements for the desired outcomes.

Strength train to maintain muscle and increase metabolism.
Cardio exercise to burn additional stored calories.

Mindful eating to satisfy your body's needs and fulfill your taste desires.
Multi Vitamin and Anti-Oxidant to sure up any nutritional defincincies.

Make sure you are taking care of the basics. There is no need (or use) in looking for advanced methods if you have not mastered the basics.

To your success,
