Weight loss made simple

We advise our members to forget dieting and find a way of eating they can maintain the rest of their lives. Remember it is ok to have the things you enjoy and not worry about restriction so much. You have control over your cravings when the foods you love are eaten in modeeration and not during a binge.

Here are a few tips to get started:

*Eat real food. Stay away from processed foods.
*Don’t avoid carbohydrates. Just watch how much of them you eat.
*Low carb (not no carb)
*High Fat promotes weight loss
*Eat healthy lean meats
*Eat lots of fruits and vegetables
*Avoid alcohol
*Watch how much sugar you consume

Based on our 20 years of helping people lose weight, the research articles available, and the countless seminars we hold, we have developed a repertoire for many training techniques. When training for weight loss, we do two things: life heavy and do anaerobic conditioning. These two things can be done in one training session, which is good for someone looking to lose weight. Are these the only two things that can be paired together to lose weight? No, there are countless methods to training that when paired properly by a knowledgeable professional can achieve weight loss.

One way of achieving your weight loss goals is to pair heavy lifting with the classic lifts (i.e., squates, deadlifts, bench press, and shoulder press) early in the workout. After the heavy lifts other lifts can be added with different repetition schemes. Anaerobic conditioning (sprints) should be done at the end of the workout.

Here are a few tips for exercising for weight loss:

*Perform heavy classic lifts
*Perform sprints – start with shorter sprints ranging from 20 – 30 seconds, then work up to longer sprints for 45-60 seconds. The work to rest ration should be 1:4 eventually working down to a 1:1 ratio.
*Don’t skip workouts
*Give 100% effort all the time
*Sleep is important for weight loss
