The Kim Kardashian Workout
It’s no secret that Kim is a workout junkie. Photographers are always catching her strolling around LA in spandex and workout apparel. Did you know she has her own videos out now? The “Fit In Your Jeans By Friday” series comes with an Ultimate Butt Body Sculpt, Amazing Abs Body Sculpt and Butt Blasting Cardio Step. These short workouts use basic cardio class moves like the step-knee, squats and lunges to get the body into shape for the weekend.

Which protein bar do you recommend Dr. Sam?
This is one of the questions that keeps coming up?
So I thought I just share with you an email I got from one of my clients about the subject.
Client: What Kind of Protein Bar do you recommend for breakfast Dr. Sam?
Me: I don’t recommend any protein bars especially if you are trying to lose body fat.
Client: But don’t have time in the morning
Me: Get up 10 minutes earlier.
Client: But I only get 5 hours of sleep.
Me: Try to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep. If yo can only get 5 hours then there wouldn’t be much of a difference between 4:50 minutes and 5 hours.
Client: Thanks Dr. Sam
Sam here. Most protein bars are just glorified, expensive candy bars. I remember when they first came on the scene.
When I looked at their nutritional information they don’t look too bad.
One of them even tasted just like a Snickers bar.
I should have known better because my mom always thought me “If it looks like a duck, quacks like then it’s a duck”
Sure enough when I had my clients try it they stopped losing fat.
Then a independent study came out and showed that NON of the so called protein bar’s nutritional label was even close to being correct.
It indicated that they are in fact a glorified, expensive candy bar.
Before I forget I can’t tell you how important it is to have a good breakfast. Eating a healthy breakfast is proven to help you with your fat loss goals.
Remember to eat like a KING for breakfast and like a PEASANT for dinner and not the other way around like most people.

How to Lose 10lb of Fat
You have tipped the weight scales by 10lbs and need to shed them fast, as your doctor has ordered. No easy task this but not impossible to achieve either. Weight loss, if properly planned and executed, is bound to be achieved. You should never try to do it overnight as it may have some very negative effects. Rather, it should be a gradual process which will yield some very long lasting effects.
First comes the severe diet control coupled with a proper workout regimen with the right exercises. You can start your day by detoxifying your system with a glass of the juice of one whole lemon, hot water and honey which will make your bowels move well and eject out the unwanted feces and metabolic wastes from your body. This drink can be drunk whenever you are feeling hungry and also between meals and is known to help cut the flab.
If you are on a rigorous workout program, your diet should be such so that you are able to convert your fat into muscle. Green vegetables, lean white meats, fish, apples and citrus fruits should be eaten in equal proportions, specially those rich in anti-oxidants.
Use a smaller plate to eat as this helps you to eat in smaller portions. Initially difficult but by no means impossible and certainly helps you achieve the weight loss objective.
Split your meals from one to two and concentrate on fiber-rich foods. A 35 gm fiber intake per day not only ensures weight loss but also cleans out the digestive system without fail. Remember, breakfast is a must and dinner should be eaten by 7PM latest to aid digestion. Breakfast boosts body metabolism and burns calories at a faster rate. Regular drinking of water too at periodic intervals helps reduce appetite and flushes out body toxins. The water intake should be at least 2 liters per day, especially when you are on to exercises and are perspiring more.
For losing 10 lbs, eating white sugar sweets are an absolute no-no. If at all you can’t help eating sweets, try eating them in the morning when the body’s metabolic rate is higher. But try and avoid sugar in your tea and coffee. Try maple syrup as a sugar supplement if you have to. Eating a whole fruit instead of its juice is more advisable as is green tea without sugar at regular intervals.
It is also important that you keep yourself busy with abundant work that involves physical activity so that food becomes the last thing on your mind. The more you are mentally preoccupied with other things, the less will be the urge to eat. The initial days of the dieting program will be difficult no doubt. But as you start getting used to it and start shedding those unwanted pounds, you will certainly feel the difference. No doubt, it’s going to be a pleasant experience!
Looking forward to bringing you more and more info all the time!!
