You Can’t Out-Exercise A Bad Diet

Posted by on Dec 19, 2013 in Skinny Tips & Quotes | 0 comments

You can’t out-exercise a bad diet. Yes, exercise is great for your overall health and fantastic for weight loss, but if your diet is horrible – you still won’t be able to lose weight. I have had clients who continued to snack on junk food and drink beer on the weekends. They thought it wasn’t that big of a deal and they didn’t think that the calories would add up. Guess again! Those calories really do add up, and ultimately will cost you your weight loss success. Exercise regularly. Eat healthy consistently (perhaps you’ll find that the 90/10 rule works for you). Believe you will achieve your overall health goals. You will see results! Slow and steady wins the race, right? ;) Feel free to follow us, however you like: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram Feel free to follow Skinny Twinkie: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest,...

Why Weight Loss Programs Fail

Posted by on Jan 7, 2013 in Weight Loss | 0 comments

Everyone’s motto at the beginning of the year seems to be “this is the year I finally ____”. Sadly, most people never reach their goals, whether their goals focus on eating healthier, exercising more, weight loss, or just working on overall health. P90X • Atkins • Boxing • CrossFit • Weight Watchers• Running • Vegan None of these exercise programs or “diets” will work out for most people. Why is that? More often than not, there is only ONE thing that is stopping them from seeing success. One thing. Consistency.  You can hire the best personal trainers and nutritionists in the world. You can be given the best exercise regime and meal plan that is perfectly designed just for you based on your specific goals. None of it will work out for you unless you actually use it. None of it will work unless you are consistent with...

5 Tips for Effective Weight Loss

Posted by on Apr 4, 2011 in Fitness, Nutrition, Weight Loss | 0 comments

If you are trying to lose weight, here are five weight loss tips that will help you get on the right track – and just as important -stay there. 1) Get enough sleep every night A lot of people seem to think that sleep is just for babies and kids. As an adult, it is just as important to get the proper amount of sleep every night. I know life can be busy – trust me, I do! It’s important to make sleep a priority, since it allows you to get the energy you need for exercise. When you are sleeping, your body naturally creates a hormone that regulates your appetite for the next day. This means that if you have enough rest each night, you are less likely to crave and munch on unhealthy snacks. Did you know?...
