You're Welcome.....

What I've learned in the last couple of years regarding fitness and nutrition. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me.

Stop doing cardio. Just lift weights.
Do some cardio but not more than 25 minutes a day.
Make sure your cardio is something where you can maintain a good pace for at least 30 min.
Make sure your cardio includes HIIT training, so your heart rate goes up and down frequently.
Do cardio every day.
Do cardio only three days a week.
Never mind, just lift weights.
Lift heavy.
Heavy weight, minimal reps.
Light weight, a lot of reps.
Form before reps.
Stop lifting weights and do more cardio if you want to lose weight.
Weights will not make you bulky.
Weights will make you look bulky if you are fat.
Just run.
Don't run, your screwing up your metabolism.
You need to speed up your metabolism.
Eat 1200 calories a day. (this came from a nutritionist by the way)
You are absolutely starving yourself if you are eating only 1200 calories a day.
You need to eat 2300 calories a day. Eat back half the calories you burn in exercise.
Don't eat back the calories you burn exercising at all.
Eat 1800 calories a day. Five small meals.
It doesn't matter how you get to 1800, just don't go over it.
You need to make sure you are eating clean when you are getting to 1800 calories.
Eat lots of chicken.
Don't eat carbs.
You need carbs to fuel your body.
If you are going to eat carbs, eat them in the morning with breakfast.
If you are going to eat carbs you need to eat a majority of them after working out, with lunch or dinner.
Don't eat carbs and good fats together. Ever.
Eat good fats, they are high in nutrients.
Watch your caloric intake on your good fats, you need to be aware of the calories.
Green beans are a vegetable.
Green beans are a carb.
Drink a gallon of water a day.
Your body does not need that much water a day.


You're welcome. ;)
