All this time I have been talking about losing weight and exercising to lose weight and to stay fit...what about those people who want to gain weight? Some people have a naturally high metabolism (lucky them) and it is hard for them to gain weight or even to gain muscle in their bodies. To gain muscle, you need to eat more calories, w/o a lot of extra saturated fat, and start lifting weights!

How many of you have decided to switch from regular soda to diet soda? Regular soda can add about five pounds to your weight a year...so to avoid this many people drink diet soda. Little do some of us know that is has aspartame in it...which causes cancer. The strange thing is that many of us who do drink diet soda, do know that it is not good for us...but what do we do? Drink, drink, drink.

A lot of people are scrapped for time and so they find themselves eating out for luch on a daily basis.If you just eat out because you find that you don't have time to make yourself a healthy and satisfying lunch in the morning, try these strategies. Some good suggestions this site offers: make extra at meals for leftovers you can put in a tupperware container and grab the next morning, buy precut vegies, and keep the basis handy. These suggestions are good because it takes little time in the morning and you can plan ahead so that you can eat a meal that is satisfying as well as healthy, rather than loaded with grease like pizza or McDonalds.

Ever have one of those days when you do not feel like doing anything...much less exercising? Well that is me today. I am so tired and I don't feel like exercising and I don't feel like preparing low fat food...so today I am going to eat what I want and not exercise and i guess i will have to get back on track tomorrow. It is ok to do this once in a while as long as it does not become a habit.

Muscles do not need to be foreign to women... I know I have like no muscles, so I looked up a couple of strength training workouts that can build some nice muscles in my arms. I probably won't ever really do them that much but if you think you might you should check these out. Muscles help us to burn calories and lose weight...so we should often include muscle building and/or toning activities in our workouts.
