Add resistance training. A 2006 study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism suggests that combining cardiovascular (aerobic) exercise with resistance training is more effective than cardiovascular training alone in getting rid of abdominal fat. You can do resistance training with free weights, exercise machines or resistance bands and it may also be useful to train from unstable positions due to increased muscle activity.
It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off. Healthy weight loss isn’t just about a “diet” or “program”. It’s about an ongoing lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily eating and exercise habits.
“For some people, it’s knowing, ‘Typically I eat a whole sandwich,’” says Gagliardi. “‘Now, I’m going to make the decision to eat half a sandwich at lunch and save the other half for my dinner and essentially cut my calories in half. And they feel good about that. They’re not having to do math.” To get started, check out these 25 simple ways to cut 500 calories a day.
Hi there, just came across this 7 day plan and really want to try it. A few questions though. Is the 1/2 cup egg whites raw or cooked? Measurement for rice, quinoa, oatmeal too…dry or cooked? Proteins…raw weight or cooked weight? I did see these questions already answered in some of the replies but saw that you answered that it was after cooked and then I saw replies that it was before cooked. Thank you. 🙂

Hello, I was google searching and discovered this meal plan you provided. It looks great and I can’t wait to try it out and I love how it doesn’t deprive a person and make it like he or she is starving themselves???? I just have one question: for breakfast it says oatmeal but I’m honestly not a fan of oatmeal. Would it be okay to have like a healthy oatmeal bar? Can you suggest some good brands? Thanks
2) I’ve got a sweet tooth as well, I hear ya! After my lunch is when it hits me and I like to have a square or two of dark organic chocolate with some black tea sweetened with stevia. In the morning I usually eat my oatmeal and I seriously make it taste amazing (using bananas, nut butter, raisins, cinnamon, vanilla flavored protein – you see how this can be delicious and nutritious all at once) so I don’t really feel deprived. I also learn how to make some super tasty sweets with healthy ingredients (you can browse through my recipes for ideas) and also, sometimes I’ll just treat myself to something sweet and not so healthy – moderation is KEY!
