Manipulating your Metabolism

Though weight loss obviously has a great nutritional and emotional element to it, the science of weight loss can be summarized as the amount of calories you burn, minus the amount of calories you consume each day. If you burn more calories than you are taking in, you WILL lose weight.

Finding Balance: the 80/100 Rule

If you exercise, eat well, quit smoking, and quit drinking all at once, you are significantly more prone to feeling discouraged and falling off the wagon. Success and sustainability come from what you are able to accomplish through hard work “most of the time”. If you put 100% effort into eating right and exercising during most of the week, a day off, cheat day, or lazy day will not deter your weight loss efforts in the long run.
