It's not too late to lose the fat!

It's not too late to lose the fat!

I've tried for awhile to work off the fat that I had around my midsection. I was jogging three times a week, watching what I ate and also swam in the lake. I made great improvements in how much weight I lost, and adding sit ups to my regime, things worked great. I looked great for the summer.

But now it's starting to cool off a little and I've slipped back into my old ways somewhat. I'm not exercising as much as I was at the beginning of the summer, and I've started to go back to some of the foods that I dearly miss. So, needless to say, I'm gaining back some of the weight that I hoped to keep off. I'm not doing to bad, but I could be a little more disciplined.

One of the things that I learned through the summer was that it takes a lot of work to look like the guys on tv! I had to constantly be watching everything that I put into my mouth and when I wasn't at work I was working out. I learned that moderation is the key. But above and beyond moderation is knowing what food combination I should stick with and a variety of other things.

I learned all this through a book called Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle. It was a great book and the writer is extremely knowledgeable about how to lose fat, gain muscle, keep off the fat and do all of this in a way that doesn't have you do nothing but working out and diet all day, every day.

A lot of what is dealt with in this book is learning to understand what your metabolism does to your body. It's crucial to know this in order to lose the fat and keep it off. With the ideas presented there was great advice to do this and I felt like I was doing good for myself without sacrificing the rest of my life. Yes it was work; but it didn't kill me. I realized early on that if you want to lose weight you are actually going to have to work at it.

By understanding how the metabolism works you can begin to figure out what foods work best for you and why. You can learn to eat the foods you want, in moderation and be able to enjoy life- no sacrifice. Of course it's all common sense stuff with a scientific twist, but it works and is presented in an easy to read manner.

I suggest learning more about this wildly popular book if you are serious about losing weight.
