    Follow these 5 tips to fat loss and watch as your body, attitude and life make dramatic changes.

  • Eat 5-6 small meals throughout the day. The first meal should be eaten within an hour after waking and each meal thereafter should be 2-3 hours apart. Each meal should contain a protein and a carb.

    Sample protein and carb meals include: salad with mandarin oranges and raspberry vinaigrette dressing topped with chicken slices, cottage cheese and blueberries, whole wheat wrap with black bean spread and chicken slices, sweet potato and turkey, oatmeal and egg whites, or veggie medley and tofu.

  • Drink a cup of water at each meal. Itís also healthy to drink herbal teas or a bit of green/white/red/black teas. Itís best to avoid soda, lemonade, coffee, energy drinks, juices and other processed, high sugar beverages.

  • Get your rest! Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night. Itís also best to take at least 48 hours of rest between strength training the same muscles and taking 1-2 days off from exercising per week.

    Resting is not a sign of laziness. It is a sign of a competent and educated exerciser. Overtraining is a serious concern that everyone must be cautious of. Rest your muscles and your mind. Youíll reap more rewards!

  • Cardio should be done at different intensity levels and different session lengths. Consider doing a low intensity/long session, a high intensity/short session and a few medium intensity/medium length sessions. Always start your cardio routine with a warm up and gradually work into higher intensities.

    Look into interval training. Interval training has been very effective at burning fat and it helps diminish the boredom factor.

  • Strength train each muscle 1-3 times per week. You should lift a proper weight and perform the proper amount of sets/reps for your strength training method. Always focus on lifter a lighter weight when first starting out. Focus on form and posture. As your confidence increases, begin to work with heavier weights.

    Women should also lift heavier weights. It is very hard for women to bulk up and gain massive muscle. To be lean and toned, lifting heavier weights is one of the secrets to success.

    Combining these 5 fitness and nutrition tips will yield a healthier and happier individual. Whether youíre a model walking down the runway or an accountant sitting behind a desk, the success of your career and your life starts with your health. Become an active participant sooner than later!
