10 Pound Melt Down

Lose 10 Pounds Fast
Daily I am asked the same question, in one way or another, “Which is more important diet or working out if my goal is to lose weight?” My response is the same: They are equally important. One can not be fully effective if the other is ignored. So as I present this diet to you, please keep in mind that this is only part of the equation. You must exercise, regularly. And by that I would like to advise you further to engage in regular cardiovascular activity as that works your heart and lungs, and burns more calories while exercising. Weight bearing exercise, such as a workout on the selectorized machines, increase lean muscle mass and gives you the metabolism boost most of us are seeking. Today I read a study from Tufts University showing the participants who coupled their weight loss eating plan with an exercise program involving cardiovascular activity, weight training and regular stretching lost 44% more fat than those participants that only followed a weight loss eating plan.
