So hopefully this will clear up some confusion you may have. The plan I'm going to outline here is for steady weight loss or for maintenance once your goal weight is reached.

5 Simple Clean Eating Tips

“Clean eating”...do you REALLY know what it means or do just think you know?  With the thousands of experts out there trying to tell you to stop eating fruit and put a whole bunch of butter in your coffee, I think it’s safe to say we are getting lots of mixed messages. In my experience it’s all about eating more of the good foods and limiting the processed. But everything in moderation to keep you from losing it (and bingeing on what you’re forbidden to eat)! How to get results: If you kinda do it... it kinda works. If you REALLY do it... it REALLY WORKS. Depending on which friend you talk to about clean eating, you’ll inevitably get someone who feels like it’s some extreme diet, tough to k

If you’re been trying hard to lose weight and you're at a pleateau or it's not going as fast as you want, you may be tempted to run more miles on the treadmill. Or doing double-sessions of spinning classes. Or going on the dangerous keto diet to speed th
