How Many Calories Do I Need to Lose Weight?

At some point on our fitness journey we all ask the question, "How many calories do I need to lose weight?" 

Finding the right answer can often be as difficult as finding the Holy Grail.  There are a number of theories out there, so figuring out what works best for you can be time consuming and frustrating.

The first thing to keep in mind is that we are all different.  We all have different bodies, metabolisms and issues, so although calorie formulas can give us a ballpark number, these numbers are just a guide.  Take some time to play around with the numbers to essentially figure out what works best in your world.

Frustrated Because The Scale is Telling You That You're Not Losing Weight?

Sometimes I hate the scale. 

Sometimes I think the scale hates me even worse.

I work my ass off, and yet when I get up in the morning and jump on it--the numbers don't move!

Talk about frustrating!

Addressing the Whole ViSalus Scam

Let's Talk about the ViSalus Scam

visalus scam
There are hundreds if not millions of weight loss programs out there, and I'm sure every one has been called a scam at some point, including the ViSalus Scam.  Heck, I bet even eating right and exercising has been called a scam by someone!

Here's the deal.  Some are scams.  Some are not.  Often we hear the name "scam" from competitors who get into the whole "mine is better than yours" mentality, and proclaim to the world that the other guys' stuff is pure garbage without really even knowing what is in the products to begin with.

So, I'll be honest.  For about a year and a half I was a ViSalus promoter.  Yeah, I said the dreaded "V" word.  After a while I decided to switch teams and move to Beachbody, and have not regretted my move one bit.  Does that mean that I think ViSalus products are crap?  Absolutely not.  I have friends and family who have had success with the Vi-Shakes, so I cannot discredit their success.

Insanity Review

You've probably heard of the ever popular workout Insanity before.  It has a reputation for being particularly gruelling, to the point where people have a tendency to get all Harry Potterish and whisper it like "He Who Must Not Be Named"....

So if you're at all curious about this program because you've decided you'd like to get fit or lose a few pounds but aren't sure if it's for you, well, you've come to the right place.

Shakeology Review

So what is this Shakeology stuff all about anyway?  Just for bulky bodybuilders?  Just for elite athletes who wear speedos to run marathons?

Ultimate Reset Review: Phase 1

Please watch this video for my candid Ultimate Reset Review

So, as many of you know, I started a program called The Ultimate Reset. It's a 21 day detox/cleanse diet that gets rid of all the garbage in your system leaving your body healthier. One great side effect is also weight loss. So, I'm done my first week, and for any of you out there who are curious, I just thought I'd give you a bit of info.
