I truly believe that cracking the weight loss code is like trying to crack the DaVinci Code. Seriously. I know tons of people, myself included, that at some point have been doing everything right only to get zip in terms of results.
Here we are, day 12 of the new year and I’m guessing some of you may already be feeling frustrated by your fitness regimen and are perhaps grabbing for a doughnut as you read this in disgust.
Read this great article instead! It has photos and more importantly, answers as to why long term aerobic exercise doesn’t work for fat loss. Sure it’ll help your heart and that’s wonderful, but if you’re hoping to drop the pounds by spending hours upon hours at the gym on treadmills, ellipticals, or training for marathons or triathalons…trainer Rachel Cosgrove says, “Don’t get your hopes up, crazy lady.” Instead, she suggests interval training and uses her own experience training for an Iron Man to back up her claims.
Thank you Michelle for posting this (and for somehow making a Prune Truffle look and sound good – didn’t know that was possible).
I’m very interested to know if others have had this same experience as well. I know I have and I can think of people that literally run their asses off but never seem to run their asses off.
Happy Health Everyone.
