13 Excuses That Can Sabotage Your Diet & How To Overcome Them
Wouldn’t it be easy to stick to a healthy diet if you lived in a world with only grilled chicken breasts, broccoli and oatmeal?
Unfortunately this just isn’t realistic.
You’re going to encounter foods you shouldn’t be eating from time to time, and be faced with a choice: give in to the craving or stick to your healthy lifestyle plan.

Gyms have become a popular place to improve your body, but what if you cannot visit a gym?But what if you are on vacation!!!
Yes, you can indeed get a great workout with your own bodyweight at home or in a nearby park. Plus, most of the gyms that are choc a bloc with the latest fitness machines are no match for good old bodyweight training! I am yet to find a treadmill that can help one lose fat faster than a tough bodyweight circuit workout.
For some, bodyweight training involves mainly some joint mobility type exercises along with some stretching and some other light exercises. Now if this is what you think about bodyweight training then it’s a shame, because bodyweight training can be far more intense than this. Try doing 50-60 full push ups in a row, 150-200 squats, or 25 fast paced burpees in a row and you will understand why.

Stopping Late Night Snacking to Lose Fat
I sat down with a client the other day who is trying to lose over 30 pounds.
The conversation went something like this.
“Sam, I just don’t know what to do – I eat egg whites for breakfast, a salad for lunch, some fish or chicken for dinner with veggies, and that’s it.”
“That’s it,” I said inquisitively since the scale hadn’t moved too much.
“YES, that is IT…well, sometimes I have a snack after dinner.”
“A snack – what does that mean?”
“Well, if I’m watching TV it can be some chips or ice cream.
But not a lot.
I don’t eat a lot of sweets.
But I need something sweet or salty after dinner.
Should I not eat at night..?”
