  • Reasons for sudden weight gain or weight loss and why you shouldn't freak out!

    Many clients and former clients have had a ‘problem’ which they swore I saved them from. More accurately, it's something I have saved them from doing something silly in reaction to. It didn't matter if they were complete fitness newbies or more advanced trainees who had achieved single-digit body fat; this problem doesn't discriminate. — It makes people equally miserable and causes them to question the hard work they are putting in. This problem they had was thinking sudden weight fluctuations were changes in body fat. ‚Äč Have you ever weighed yourself one morning to find you've gained 5 pounds? This is common if you've been dieting and you have a day with ....

  • Whats the best way to lose belly fat...diet or exercise?

    What's the best way to lose belly fat: Diet or Exercise? You really need both of them because: losing fat (all kinds of fat, not just the belly fat that covers your lower abs) requires an energy deficit. At the end of the day, you need your body to realize that it didn't take in enough caloric currency to pay for your daily efforts, forcing it to tap into its energy savings account (stored fat).

Leptin is a hormone released by your fat cells that signals you to eat less and burn more ....
