Please do yourself a favour and read the ingredients

Hello, hello

In one of my previous post I was talking about chemicals found in foods.
The same principle applies to any food or drink (juices are another very scary topic). “Read well before drinking” would be my concern - not “Shake well before drinking”. ; It sounds like they want to make sure that all the chemicals are well-blended.
Please do yourself a favour and read the ingredients. If a juice has more than 2-3 ingredients live it on the shelf. Specially if your goal is to lose weight.
My personal rule is: “If I can’t pronounce it, I can’t eat it or drink it.” I hope you can understand what I’m trying to say here, because this rule helped me stay fit and healthy all my life.

Accelerate weigth loss with 15-20min. weight training

Accelerate weight loss with 15-20 min. weight training

Let me show you very simple ways to lose weight using simple 15-20 min. weight training.
Don't let the words weight loss and weight training intimidate you. It's very simple if you get a little guidance. Studies show that by having a little more muscle mass you can burn significantly more calories even when you are just standing or sitting.

1 lb. of fat needs - 2 Calories to survive

1 lb. of muscle needs - 50 Calories to survive

So the answer is very simple, if you want quick weight loss
even when you are doing nothing start a little muscle building routine and you are on your way to weight loss success.

Other major benefits are increased "bone density" and increased balance.

I will share my extended weight loss and fitness experience with you in my upcoming posts.
