Fat Vs. Muscle

If you're trying to lose a lot of weight and get discouraged when you've "only lost 5 lbs" - look at the picture ... 5 lbs of fat is a great accomplishment! 5 lbs of muscle weighs the same as 5 lbs of fat so don't always focus on the scale. Muscle takes up less space because it is denser. So, someone weighing 150 lbs -- if it's with muscle they will look thinner than someone with more fat, but weighing the same. If you have a consistent workout and strength training schedule, you should experience a change in body shape. Muscle burns more calories than fat .. even while sitting during the day. If you begin strength training but do not increase your caloric intake, you should experience weight loss from the burning of extra calories. Many, many more benefits but that's a few!

Your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same. If you need help, please contact me. In Health and Happiness, Missy Kent

5 Tips to Help You Stick with a Healthy Lifestyle

By Chalene Johnson So you've decided you want to live a healthy lifestyle. Fantastic! Now the key is to commit to it. Here are 5 tips to help you stay on track: 1. Portion sizes for high-calorie food should be small. Portion size for vegetables should be large. 2. Distract yourself when you have a very strong craving. Cravings will disappear after a few minutes if you walk away and turn your attention elsewhere. Do something positive to distract yourself. 3. When you really crave something unhealthy, finish this phrase: "What do I want more?" For example, that piece of chocolate cake or a body I feel proud of?
