Thought for the day...

April 09, 2007

I get this question a lot:

"I'm following your program and it's working great. I feel stronger, tighter, looser, etc. But I'm not losing much weight. What am I doing wrong?"

In almost every case when I check on the person's diet, they are eating far too many carbohydrates (sugar) to allow for their bodies to use body fat as its main source of fuel. And, as the person strength trains, they gain muscle mass and sometimes body weight.

People, if you really want to lose fat, you absolutely MUST get a handle on the total amount of sugar you are consuming on a daily basis. Not just junk food sugar - ALL sugar.

The bottom line is this - if you're getting ready for summer, a wedding, a date or anything that requires fat loss, KEEP AWAY FROM SUGAR except for veggies and some seasonal fruit.

I don't care how hard it is. I know how hard it is.

It is what it is. Feel free to email me for tips. No charge.
