July 31st, 2011 1 comment

I’d like to lose at least 20 pounds, so what odd diets work for you? Does the grapefruit, juice, or water diet work?

any fad diet will work if you stick to it. but as soon as you get off you are gonna gain the weight back. eat healthy and exercise. you need to make it a lifestyle, not just a diet. that way the weight will stay off.

Chipotle Healthy Eating Video Series #22 – Food With Integrity – Fitness Nutrition

July 28th, 2011 25 comments
Click here To Lose Fat and Gain Muscle with my online program from anywhere in the world.

Or come into our private studio here in Chicago. Check out our life / body changing programs at;

Who’s arms are bigger? Vince’s or Mine?

Chipotle Burritto is celebrating 18 years in business. They take pride in giving us a top quality meal. They call it “Food With Integrity”!! I love Chipotle, and you should too!!

2 take aways from this video are;

1.) when you eat healthy food, every 3 hours, and combine protein with carbs, you can eat lots and lots of food while you boost your body’s metabolism. Your body will be forced to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.

2.) By eating food at Chipotle you can feel great that you are eating a very high quality meal. This is so important. I have not eaten at McDonald or other fast food places in over 15 years. The average restaurants food has some chemicals and preservatives in it that it will kill you.
“U – 2; Have The Power To Change!!”

Make The Rest of Your Life…
The Best of Your Life…!!

I only eat Chipotle Burritos on leg day. If I eat there and it is not on leg day, I will eat only 1/2 of the Burrito and save the other half for later. Get plenty of hot sauce on it as this also helps your body burn fat faster. I like to get 1/3 chicken, 1/3 shredded spicy beef, and 1/3 steak. It taste great, but that way you get a more broad arrangement of amino acids. And that is always good.
I started passionately studying what lean people were doing in 1981 because my waistline was 40 inches. I have learned a lot since then. I am now in the best shape of my life at the age of 45.

My waistline is now 31 inches. Nutrition is 60-70% of your fat loss / muscle gain program. Follow me & I will teach you exactly how to eat for your body type, activity level, starting point, & your goals.

Go to to learn secrets and tips to work out less and see more results.

I believe that it is one of the most time efficient, results orientated fitness / fat;loss programs on the market today.

You can work-out till your blue in the face but if you do not incorporate Interval Cardio (done first thing in the morning in a fasted state), intense functional multi-joint, compound exercises, small healthy meals often with protein and carbs combined together, positive mindset, goal setting & social support (you will turn into who you hang around) you will not change your body much.

But if you do focus on the 5 pillars of fitness & health, you will radically change your waistline, your lifestyle, and your life.




The main reason to workout abs is because strong abs will stabilize your lower back and prevent you from an injury; but as a side benefit a 6-pack looks great! Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding.

Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time, gyms are great but home workouts can save you time and money. A couple of rubber bands & some good exercises is all it takes to get started with your home workouts. You do not need any equipment.

In fact most of the clubs are wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars on equipment that is making peoples bodies less functional and worse off. I highly advice you to pick one mentor at a time, limit your information, train hard & smart, and expect success!!

Just Do It!!

How long after birth did you start dieting?

July 27th, 2011 2 comments

I still have 2 months left until I give birth, but I am really excited about getting back to weight watchers. I want to hear from other moms, how long after giving birth did you wait to start a diet. I know that it is recommended 6 weeks until you can start exercising, especially after a c-section. But Im not sure about the dieting guidelines I will ask my doctor at my next appointment, especially since weight watchers is really just a way of eating healthier and not really a diet. Just want to hear when did you start? Please no rude answers!

well a lot of girls that i knew that had babies didn’t need to diet because they looked good/healthy after having a baby. too bad everyone isn’t like that.

Easy Weight Loss Tips – An Easy Weight Loss Plan to Get the Weight Off

July 21st, 2011 12 comments

With so many diet books, weight loss programs and pills, potions and drinks, you would think that developing an easy weight loss plan took a Master’s degree in Nutrition to figure it out. But it really isn’t like that.

Most of us probably already know how to lose weight, it can just be tough putting it into practice, especially with so many competing messages out there about the right way to do it. So hopefully I can help you out with some easy weight loss tips that will get that weight off so you can feel better, stronger and healthier.

The first thing you need to do is to set a goal for yourself. Losing weight is about taking one step at a time, so set an achievable goal. For example, set a goal of a five pound weight loss in two weeks. Write the goal down. In fact, take an index card and write your goal in big letters and then put the index card someplace you can see it every day. Then mark the two week date on your calendar. Now it’s time to make a plan.

If you are wanting to lose five pounds in two weeks, you need to have a plan of how you will accomplish this. Don’t plan beyond the first two weeks. It is usually easier to lose weight if you take the task in small chunks and taking note of small accomplishments along the way. so for now, just worry about the first two weeks and meeting your weight loss goal for it.

For starters, develop meal plans for at least the upcoming week and be sure to write them down. Also write down the shopping list and then stick to it when you go to the supermarket.

For the next two weeks, stop eating out and start fixing meals at home. Take your lunch to work and include healthy snacks to eat throughout the day. When developing your meal plans, try to count how many calories are in the meals that you are preparing. This will give you an idea of how many calories you are taking in at each meal. Ideally, you should be eating between 1200 and 1500 calories to lose weight.

Also, be certain that you are drinking plenty of water. Water is one of the most important aspects of weight loss. It will help keep your body’s digestive system running smoothly. If you don’t like the taste of plain water, try adding sugar free flavor packets to your water. There are several good ones on the market that contain no calories and will make your water taste delicious.

Now that you know what you are going to eat, it’s time to think about exercise. For starters, take a walk. It doesn’t have to be a mile long walk around the neighborhood. Just take a walk around the block two or three times. If you have a treadmill, try to do fifteen minutes on the treadmill. Now repeat this every day. You will soon discover that you look forward to walking. You may want to include a friend when you walk to make it more enjoyable.

After two weeks, weigh yourself and you will find that you have lost that five pounds, if not more. That’s how simple it is to lose weight. So now all you have to do is repeat this process over and over.

It is important that you do increase the amount of exercise that you get for maximum weight loss. Find something that you really like to do. For instance, if you like to dance, get some good exercise videos that include dance. A lot of cable companies now carry a variety of exercise channels so you can pick and choose which ones you want to use. If you find an exercise that you really find enjoyable, you will be looking forward to it each day.

So hopefully you will find that this is an easy weight loss plan for you to follow. Now that you have put these easy weight loss tips into practice, you can continue to implement them for as long as you need to. Just do try and keep it to two week blocks of time so you can celebrate the small goals along the way.
