It’s been about one month since I joined Fitness Concepts.

The results are starting to really show through. I have loss over 17 pounds; inches are melting off my body.

When I first inquired about the program, I didn’t think I would be this motivated and see results this quickly.

I thought this must be another program that may work for some and probably not for me, but what the heck, I’ll try it.

Dr. Saman told me that I was on the borderline of being obese, I am only 26 years old. How can I be obese?

I can’t be, just a couple short years ago, I was in pretty good shape.

I want to look and feel young again, without having to shop at the plus size store.

I have two young kids, 4 & 2, am I going to be able to keep up with them at the park, or am I going to sit on the bench and have trouble breathing everytime I move?

Dr. Saman helped me set goals & steps in helping me achieve that goal.

He held a nutrition seminar that both my husband and I attended, what an eye opener

Immediately, Dr. Saman motivated us so much, we went home and cleaned out our fridge and pantry.

Donated all of our hamburger helper, canned soups,cookies, pastas, etc. to the local food bank.

Dr. Saman showed us how to shop for our food, how to eat, his blogs on how to order food at a fast food restaurant, how to control your portions.

Between Dr. Saman, Armando, Maria Macias (master trainer), I am working hard to lose the weight, gain muscle, learning how to workout the correct way.

This is just the beginning for me, I look forward to a bright future with Fitness Concepts.

You have truly proved that your program works as long as you have the drive, willpower, visualize what and how you want to feel.

Kind regards, Amy Kok

The Master Skill of Success

Well,  the first week of the new year is here. Here is a quick post on how to reach your goals. At the bottom of this post I already shared with you my goals and resolutions for this year. Please share with me some of yours.

In a famous study in 1953, the graduating seniors of a major university were asked if they had written goals, and plans to achieve them, after they left the university.

1953rosenbergsons1953-thumb-468x3451
It turned out that 3 percent had written goals and plans. 14 percent had goals but they were not written. The other 83 percent had no goals or plans at all, aside from getting out of university and going on vacation that summer.

1953-54class1
Twenty years later in 1973, they followed up on the graduates in this study and asked them, among other things, about their financial situations. They found that the 3 percent of students who had clear, written goals and plans upon graduation were worth more than the entire 97 percent of graduates put together.

What does this experiment have to do with your fitness goals?

EVERYTHING

You see before we start an exercise plan, we must write down our fitness goals.

This automatically starts to program your subconscious towards achieving your goal.

Imagine that you have two drivers, each with a brand new Mercedes-Benz.

They both set to travel across the country toward a distant destination.

One sets off with no road map, navigation, nothing.

The second driver takes the time to plan his trip carefully using road map, navigation and getting advice from people who have traveled that path.

Which driver do you think will reach his destination on schedule??

The first driver might NOT even reach his destination.

Your fitness goals are pretty much the same.

People with clear, specific goals and plans that they work from each day, accomplish on the average, ten times the result as others who don’t have a clear idea of where they are going or when they want to get there.

Lose Weight While You Sleep

Anyone who has watched television after 10pm has seen ads for fat-burning potions that promise to melt off unwanted pounds while you watch TV, read a book or sleep. However, while you know that there is no magic potion to help you lose weight in the La-Z-Boy, there are steps that you can take to help your body burn more calories every day and lose weight faster-yes, even as you sleep.

The secret to better calorie burning is in raising your resting energy expenditure-your metabolism- the amount of calories you burn every moment as you live and breathe. Sometimes in our 30’s, our metabolism starts slowing down at a rate of 5% every decade- a seemingly small decline, but one that can add up to more than 10 extra pounds’ worth of calories a year if you’re not careful.

Why the metabolism meltdown? Muscle loss. Muscle tissue burns about five times as many calories each day-even when you’re not exercising-than fat tissue does. Unless you take action, by the time you’re 65 it’s possible that you will replace half of your lean body mass with twice as much body fat.

MAKE SOME MUSCLE

“Resistance training probably is the best long term method for increasing resting energy expenditure,” says metabolism researcher Gary R. Hunter. If you work every major muscle group twice a week, you can replace 5 to 10 years’ worth of muscle loss in just a few months. That new lean muscle tissue will boost your resting metabolism. Plus you’ll also burn about 200 calories by performing your strength training routine and your metabolism will stay revved up for about 48 hours afterward.

EAT TO LOSE

Exercise always works better if you eat right. You can complement your calorie-burning efforts with these strategies…

Eat breakfast. According to a study by researches at the George Washington University in Washington, DC, skipping breakfast can cause your resting metabolic rate to 5%. Eat a morning meal-oatmeal, yogurt and fruit provide a good protein-carbohydrate blend-and your metabolism will return to normal.

Get protein with every meal. Protein not only makes you feel full faster than carbohydrates, but also takes more energy for your body to digest, so it gives you a slight metabolic boost. Some good sources are fish, lean meats, poultry and legumes.

Eat frequent meals. Whenever you deprive your body of food for too long, it goes into survival mode, slowing your metabolism and hording calories. Eat regular, healthy meals-along with one or two healthy snacks in between.

Drink plenty of water-and make it cold. In a study from Germany, researchers reported that drinking water boosts your body’s calorie burning rate by 30%. Ten minutes after 14 men and woman drank just over a pint of water, their metabolism sped up, and within 40 minutes, it reached a peak burning stage that lasted more than one hour. Since the metabolism spike is partly due to the body’s efforts to warm the water you drink, cold water works best.

Drink green tea. Researchers from Switzerland found that 6 out of 10 men who took a green tea supplement-the equivalent of one cup of green tea-three times a day with their meals burned about 80 more calories during the following 24 hours than those who took a caffeine pill or a dummy pill. They believe the tea’s flavonoids enhance deigestive efficacy.

Grocery Store Tour

This week I go to Albertsons in Chino Hills to take a tour of what to purchase and what not to purchase at the grocery store in order to maintain fat loss and a healthy diet. I explain in the video what to look for in products, what to stay clear of, and I also point out alternatives to your favorite foods. Below the video I have also provided a grocery store shopping list to help you next time you take a trip to the store. There are also some charts and resources that you may find helpful below as well!
