Break Through Any Weight-Loss Plateau

Question #1: Are You Keeping Track of Your Daily Calories?


6 Ways to (Finally!) Get a Flat Belly

Whether your goal is to lose your muffin top for good, or to finally try to achieve those elusive six-pack abs, use these results-driven techniques and advice for helping you win the battle of the belly bulge once and for all.


MYTH: The Last 10 Pounds Are Impossible to Lose

The last few pounds are always the hardest to lose – but that doesn't mean it's impossible to do! Use the following tips to clean up your diet and drop those final few pounds.

The Truth: The body struggles to hold on to that last bit of fat for survival purposes, so while it is tough to lose the last five to 10 pounds, it’s definitely doable.


MYTH: Weighing Yourself Daily Will Help You Stay on Track

Stepping on the scale doesn't have to be a scary event for yearly doctor's visits – and it also doesn't have to be a daily torture ritual. There is a happy medium in there – I'll help you find it.

The Truth: I recommend that people weigh themselves once a week, at the same time every week. Weighing yourself every day can have a negative impact on you.


MYTH: If You Lose Weight Too Fast You Won't Keep It Off

Some people say that "healthy" weight loss means losing one to two pounds per week. So if you're losing more - or less - than that, are you doing something wrong?

The Truth: There is no such thing as “losing weight too fast.” As long as you’re consuming a healthy amount of calories by eating nutritious foods and exercising more, you’ll lose weight at an appropriate speed for your body.


MYTH: It's Hard to Lose Weight as You Age

Is muffin top a given once you've hit the big 4-0? Think there's nothing you can do to combat the inevitable? Think again!

The Truth: Sure, you can blame your excess weight and sluggish metabolism on your age, but the truth is that if you take a few precautions your body and metabolism can snap back into shape.

Move It to Lose It

Know someone who's getting amazing results from an insanely low-calorie diet? It may be tempting to severely restrict your calories in hopes of a drastic weight loss, but don't even think about it! Truth is, very few people can maintain one of those crazy kinds of diets for more than a couple of weeks.
