    Here are my top eight tips on weight loss and doing life, as they have applied to me.

    Be public. I've found that the natural instinct when you decide to take on your obesity is to keep it to yourself. For whatever reason, it's somewhat humiliating to talk to people about your decision. I don't know why this is, but it is. But here's the thing: you'll find that more often than not, the people that love you and care about you are going to be thrilled when you tell them about your decision. You're not going to be able to do this journey alone.

    Get involved. This is kind of a subset of rule number one. Get involved in something official. Whether it be a running club, a master's swim class, a regular yoga class, or anything that will help you meet people with the same goals and dreams. Getting involved will also help you to keep coming back. It gives you an obligation and accountability system that is crucial to your success. Rather than just going out each day and saying, "Well, what should I do today?," you will start to make your lifestyle change part of your everyday routine--which is the ultimate goal. As a runner, I suggest signing up for a race and training to that race every couple of months. Having a tangible goal (whether it be "just finishing" or a specific time goal) will keep you motivated to improve.

    Overhaul your eating. This is where things get tough for most of us. You can't really become obese without an eating problem, so this is the area where we all have to look at ourselves, be honest, and work hard to make the change. I know, I know... Food is just SOOOO good. Believe me, I've been there. I'm a guy who ate at restaurants an average of three times a day for the past six years of college (yes, college took me six years, but that's a different advice column...). Readers sometimes ask me for a name brand diet, usually in book form, that will tell them what to eat. I always have the same answer, "Sorry, I stayed away from name-brand diets."

    Find something that works for you. If I had started my journey and said, "I really want to be good at yoga." My journey would have been more like the Titanic rather than Christopher Columbus. Do you despise running? Then don't. Do you hate staying in one place? Don't use the elliptical. You have to want to keep coming back, so do something you can enjoy.

    Keep stats. There's your weight, obviously, but don't just rely on the scales to show you how far you've come. Write down how long it took you to run your first mile, your first 5K, whatever. If it has a number, and you are looking to improve it, record it somehow. Yes, seeing numbers drop on the scale is phenomenal, but so is seeing numbers fall off the stopwatch and your belt holes. There's your weight, obviously, but don't just rely on the scales to show you how far you've come. Write down how long it took you to run your first mile, your first 5K, whatever. If it has a number, and you are looking to improve it, record it somehow. Yes, seeing numbers drop on the scale is phenomenal, but so is seeing numbers fall off the stopwatch and your belt holes.

    Know that at first, you will suck. The first stationary bike session you complete? It's going to suck. The first time you swim down the fitness center pool and back? Suck. Your first lap you do around a track? Suck, suck, suck. But the important thing to know is that you will get better. And the better thing? It won't take very long. If you heed to rule No. 5, you should start seeing improvement in a week or two. And after you get to where you can comfortably do some cardio workouts for 30 or 45 minutes, you will start improving even faster.


    Set (realistic) goals, and keep them short-term. If you go into this thinking, "I have to lose 200 pounds. Let's get started," you will be overwhelmed and your chances of failing will skyrocket. Break it down into small increments, maybe 10 or 15 pounds at a time. You're more likely to stick with 10 pounds in two months than 200 pounds over two years. Reward yourself when you hit big milestones (depending on how much you have to lose). Better yet, get someone to reward you; you'll save a lot of money that way.


    Be prepared for failure. You aren't going to be perfect. There are going to be many times when you eat way too much pizza at the football party or skip four workouts in a row. The crucial thing here is to anticipate these moments, move on from them, and put yourself back on the wagon. A few missed workouts will not erase your hard work and a few thousand extra calories will not put the pounds back on. It's going to happen. I've been there. It's easy to feel sorry for yourself and give up, but don't. You don't want to go back to the beginning

    EVERYONE who wants to get leaner should read this article. Sometimes we veterans forget what we once knew or we don't practice what we now know. If you're a beginner, this will be an introduction. If you're experienced, let this be a reminder.


    1. JUST GET STARTED - TAKE DECISIVE ACTION!

    There are so many opinions about how to lose body fat that many people end up completely confused and they don't do ANYTHING!
    They've read about 27 ways to diet, 34 ways to do cardio, 101 ways to lift weights and 79 supplements to take. But they still don't have a clue how to start.
    You stuff your brain with so much information it feels like it's going to explode, but then you never do anything about it. You're like a deer stuck in headlights. Sound familiar?
    I call this the "paralysis by analysis" syndrome.

    The most important thing you can do is take action. Just begin the journey and figure it out as you go. Better still; get a coach or trainer right from the start.
    Actually, losing fat is not that complicated. You don't need a PhD in exercise physiology to figure out that any exercise is better than no exercise. You don't have to be a genius in nutritional biochemistry to figure out that an apple is better than a pop tart. Getting lean is simple: Exercise. Eat healthier foods. Eat smaller portions. Isn't this stuff just common sense? Didn't your mother tell you this?

    So what's stopping you? What makes you freeze up?

    If you're like most people, FEAR is stopping you. You're so afraid of doing something wrong, you choose to do nothing rather than make a mistake or look foolish.
    What you must understand is that people who accomplish much and people who accomplish little BOTH have fears. The difference between the two is that the latter feels the fear and lets it immobilize them. The former feels the fear and does it anyway.

    Begin the process. You can always fine-tune your program as you go. Naturally, it's better to aim and then fire, but its better to fire and then adjust your aim later than not to fire at all. You can't win a battle by hiding in the trenches.

    2. WALKING IS A GREAT WAY TO START A CARDIO PROGRAM

    Ok, so you've decided to forge ahead in spite of your fear and start working out. Congratulations. Now what? How do you choose between Stairmaster, Tae Bo, Lifecycle, Yoga, Kickboxing, Elliptical machine, jogging, swimming, etc.?
    Any exercise is better than no exercise so stop over-analyzing: just pick something and start. Just do it.

    If you can't make up your mind, then here's the simplest, easiest, most guaranteed way for any beginner to successfully start a fat loss program:

    Walk!

    Here's why:

    It requires no equipment

    It requires no knowledge of exercise technique

    It can be done by almost everyone, regardless of experience

    It can be done almost anywhere

    It's safe

    For all these reasons, walking is the perfect way to begin. However, the better your condition becomes, the more you'll need to advance to higher levels of exercise intensity to reach higher levels of fitness.

    I'm not saying you should abandon walking, but if you decide to keep walking, a casual stroll will no longer do. For an experienced exerciser, I would consider walking a method of locomotion more than a serious workout.

    There's a big difference between walking for health vs walking for fat loss. Even a 10 or 15-minute casual walk has health benefits. But if you want to turn walking into an effective, fat-melting workout, you'll need to push yourself for 30 minutes or more several days per week. Walking briskly uphill (or on an inclined treadmill) is an excellent fat-burning workout for anyone.

    3. DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN MINUTIA - FOCUS ON FUNDAMENTALS

    Read any book about success and it will tell you "pay attention to detail." Sounds like good advice - unless you haven't mastered the fundamentals yet. In that case, it's the worst advice you could follow.

    Every day people ask me questions like these:
    "Should I use a fast acting protein powder like whey or would casein be better? What if I mix both and also add a little bit of Soy? If I use all of them, what ratio of the three would be ideal and when should I take them?"
    "I want to do the ephedrine-caffeine stack and it says to take 20 mg of ephedrine with 200 milligrams of caffeine. The ephedrine comes in 25 milligram tablets, so should I chip a little bit off the tablet to get the right ratio?"

    Do you see the problem here?

    These are legitimate questions, but they're completely moot if you're eating doughnuts and sitting on the couch all day long. Fix your diet and get your butt moving first, then worry about the little things.

    Emerson said, "The height of the pinnacle is determined by the breadth of the base." The heights you reach will depend entirely on how broad a foundation you build. Great coaches such as Vince Lombardi and John Wooden credited most of their success to drilling their players on fundamentals.

    Forget about ALL the minutia until you have the fundamentals down cold!

    Forget about supplement dosages

    Forget about macronutrient cycling

    Forget about tempo manipulation

    Forget about glycemic indexes

    Forget about the latest Bulgarian or Russian periodization program

    Master the fundamentals first!

    The fundamentals of fat loss include: (1) Do your cardio, (2) Lift weights, (3) Burn more calories than you consume (4) Eat 5-6 small, frequent meals and never skip meals, (5) Keep your fat intake low, but include small amounts of good fats, (6) Eat natural foods; avoid processed & refined foods, (7) eat more complex carbs, fruits & vegetables, (8) eat lean proteins with each meal, (9) Think positive: visualize yourself as you would like to be.

    If you're not doing all these things, and you're looking for the perfect supplement stack or the optimum periodization plan, I'm afraid you're barking up the wrong tree.
    I don't want you to think that details don't matter - they do. The "Law of Accumulation" states that every success is a matter of hundreds or even thousands of tiny efforts that often go unnoticed or unappreciated. Everything counts. Everything either helps or hurts. Nothing is neutral.

    The problem is when you get bogged down in minutia before you've even learned the basics. Minor details produce minor results. Major fundamentals produce major results.

    Don't major in minor things. Lay your foundation first, then move on to the finer points. And remember, as Jim Rohn says, always be suspicious of someone who says they've found a new fundamental.

    4. KNOW YOUR CALORIES

    The most important dietary factor in fat loss is not how many grams of carbohydrate, protein or fat you eat, the most important factor for fat loss is calories. Eat more than you burn each day and you will store fat. Eat less than you burn each day and you will lose fat.It's just that simple.

    Where the calories come from is important too, but unless you understand the calorie concept, nothing else matters.

    I'm appalled at how many people claim to sincerely want to lose body fat who admit they haven't a clue how many calories they eat.
    Get serious! If you don't have the faintest idea how much you're eating, how can you expect to make any progress?

    Did it ever occur to you that your ONLY problem might be overeating!
    Do you realize that too much of anything gets stored as fat?

    That's right - even if you're eating nothing but "natural and healthy" foods, if you eat too many of them, you're still going to get fat.

    Portion control, my friend, portion control!
    On the other hand, maybe you're under-eating and slowing down your metabolism. There's a fine line.

    5. NEVER, EVER QUIT! MAKE FITNESS A LIFESTYLE!

    Do you know what is the biggest mistake made by beginners?
    They quit!

    Remember in the January issue, where I mentioned how attendance in our gym shoots up for about 6-8 weeks around New Year's? Well, it's back to normal now because all the quitters dropped out already.
    What's especially sad is that most people quit right when they're on the verge of making substantial progress.

    Remember: You're never a failure as long as you're working on the progressive realization of a worthy goal. But the second you quit, then it's official - you're a failure.
    Quitting should not even be an option because...

    FITNESS IS A LIFESTYLE!

    Don't let these four words slip by you just because it's an oft-repeated cliché. This is an important mindset! You have to stop thinking of getting in shape for a New Year's resolution, vacation or wedding (or a contest, you bodybuilders). You must start thinking about getting healthy and in shape FOR LIFE.

    When you're just starting out, firmly resolve that quitting is not even an option. Don't approach this endeavor with an "I'll try" attitude. If you accept quitting as a possibility, you might as well not even start; just grab that remote control, a bag of chips and get back on the couch where you were before.
    Also, understand that results may come slowly in the beginning if you're not the genetically-gifted type. This process requires great patience and persistence for most people.

    Most beginners never allow themselves the time it takes to get any momentum going. They expect too much too soon, get discouraged and quit.
    It takes a big push to get started. It's like getting a rocket off the ground - it uses most of its fuel just launching off the pad, but once it's in the air and the inertia has been overcome, it can keep going with very little energy expenditure. Don't quit just because it's difficult to "launch!"

    6. GET A PERSONAL TRAINER, COACH, OR MENTOR

    Life is too just too short to learn everything there is to know on your own. Don't waste time climbing the ladder only to find it's leaning against the wrong wall! Learn from the experts. Get a trainer, personal coach, or mentor to help you start right - right from the start.


    7. JOIN A GYM IF YOU CAN, BUT A SET OF DUMBBELLS ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH TO GET YOU STARTED

    I admit I'm showing my bias by saying everyone should join a gym (I'm in the health club business), but I sincerely believe nothing beats working out in a high quality health club. In a well-equipped gym, the possibilities are endless, the atmosphere is motivational and people are there to help you.

    More often than not, however, beginners start at home. That being the case, I admit that you don't need a gym to get started. You also don't need any of that garbage advertised on late night TV. The only piece of equipment you need has existed for over 100 years - that's right, the humble DUMBBELL!

    Remember - don't overcomplicate this - think basics, basics, basics (and dumbbells are as basic as it gets.)

    Dumbbells are the single most versatile piece of equipment in existence. You can perform hundreds, even thousands of exercises with dumbbells.

    Ladies, a set of 3 to 20 pounds will be more than sufficient. Guys, a set from 10 to 40 pounds should do the trick (for now). I've also heard wonderful things about Powerblock dumbbells for space-saving, although I don't have first hand experience to cite.
    If you also get yourself a bench and clear out a little corner in your favorite room, then you're ready to roll!

    Here it is - The beginner's all-dumbbell routine:

    1. Dumbbell bench press (chest)

    2. Dumbbell side lateral raise (shoulders)

    3. One arm dumbbell row (upper back)

    4. Dumbbell extension behind head (triceps)

    5. Dumbbell Bicep curl (biceps)

    6. Dumbbell Lunges (thighs)

    7. Dumbbell One leg calf raise (calves)

    8. Dumbbell leg curl (hamstrings)

    9. Crunches (abs)

    There you have it. Simple and effective. At home or in a gym.

    If you're just starting, do this routine for 2-3 sets of 8-12 reps per exercise, except calves and abs which you can go up to 20 reps. Rest 1 minute between sets. You'll train your whole body in each workout, 2 -3 three days per week, non-consecutive days.

    After 3 - 6 months, you'll probably need to add exercises and move up to a split routine. (So I guess I have to do another article, called 8 tips for intermediates: How to keep going).

    8. WEIGHT TRAINING IS NOT OPTIONAL - IT'S MANDATORY!

    It's is a common misconception that you should start with aerobic workouts and lose the fat first before adding weight training.
    Unfortunately, the best you can hope for from diet and aerobics alone is to become a "skinny fat person." You may lose weight, but you'll have a poor muscle to fat ratio and a "soft" appearance.

    Obviously, weight training is the key to developing strength and muscle. What few people realize is that weight training also increases fat loss, although it occurs indirectly.

    Weight training is anaerobic and burns carbohydrates (sugar).Cardio is aerobic and therefore burns fat. So it seems logical to focus on aerobic training for fat loss.
    However, something interesting happens "beneath the surface" when you lift weights. Weight training increases your lean body mass - aerobic training does not.
    Low calorie dieting and aerobic training without weight lifting can make you lose lean body mass. If you lose lean body mass, your metabolism slows down, and this makes it harder to lose fat.

    If you increase your lean body mass, you increase your ********* rate and this makes it easier to lose fat. With a faster metabolism, you'll burn more fat all day long - even while you're sleeping!

    If you have limited time, and your main priority is fat loss, then do a very brief weight training program and spend the majority of your time concentrating on cardio. But never neglect the weights completely - always do both, and if possible, devote equal attention to each.
    Here you share so nice post ...
    I quite agree with your post here you share so nice tips for diet..

    Don't know if this one was said, but I have recently realized this; eat your leafy green veggies for the fiber! You will feel full which is a key thing while dieting IMO. I'm recomping now and eating lots of veggies on non training days and wish I listened to this advice while dieting.

    When people recomp I dont understand how you could lose fat, yet build muscle at the same time.

    See I understand that burning fat means burning calories, I also understand that gaining muscle means adding unburned calories. Am I way off base?

    I've heard that low carb diets lower your test. I guess thats why they work best on gear LOL

    That's right - even if you're eating nothing but "natural and healthy" foods, if you eat too many of them, you're still going to get fat.

    Portion control, my friend, portion control!
    On the other hand, maybe you're under-eating and slowing down your metabolism. There's a fine line.

    5. NEVER, EVER QUIT! MAKE FITNESS A LIFESTYLE!

    Do you know what is the biggest mistake made by beginners?
    They quit!

    Remember in the January issue, where I mentioned how attendance in our gym shoots up for about 6-8 weeks around New Year's? Well, it's back to normal now because all the quitters dropped out already.
    What's especially sad is that most people quit right when they're on the verge of making substantial progress.

    Remember: You're never a failure as long as you're working on the progressive realization of a worthy goal. But the second you quit, then it's official - you're a failure.
    Quitting should not even be an option because...

    FITNESS IS A LIFESTYLE!

    Don't let these four words slip by you just because it's an oft-repeated cliché. This is an important mindset! You have to stop thinking of getting in shape for a New Year's resolution, vacation or wedding (or a contest, you bodybuilders). You must start thinking about getting healthy and in shape FOR LIFE.

    When you're just starting out, firmly resolve that quitting is not even an option. Don't approach this endeavor with an "I'll try" attitude. If you accept quitting as a possibility, you might as well not even start; just grab that remote control, a bag of chips and get back on the couch where you were before.
    Also, understand that results may come slowly in the beginning if you're not the genetically-gifted type. This process requires great patience and persistence for most people.

    Most beginners never allow themselves the time it takes to get any momentum going. They expect too much too soon, get discouraged and quit.
    It takes a big push to get started. It's like getting a rocket off the ground - it uses most of its fuel just launching off the pad, but once it's in the air and the inertia has been overcome, it can keep going with very little energy expenditure. Don't quit just because it's difficult to "launch!"

    6. GET A PERSONAL TRAINER, COACH, OR MENTOR

    Life is too just too short to learn everything there is to know on your own. Don't waste time climbing the ladder only to find it's leaning against the wrong wall! Learn from the experts. Get a trainer, personal coach, or mentor to help you start right - right from the start.


    7. JOIN A GYM IF YOU CAN, BUT A SET OF DUMBBELLS ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH TO GET YOU STARTED

    I admit I'm showing my bias by saying everyone should join a gym (I'm in the health club business), but I sincerely believe nothing beats working out in a high quality health club. In a well-equipped gym, the possibilities are endless, the atmosphere is motivational and people are there to help you.

    More often than not, however, beginners start at home. That being the case, I admit that you don't need a gym to get started. You also don't need any of that garbage advertised on late night TV. The only piece of equipment you need has existed for over 100 years - that's right, the humble DUMBBELL!

    Remember - don't overcomplicate this - think basics, basics, basics (and dumbbells are as basic as it gets.)

    Dumbbells are the single most versatile piece of equipment in existence. You can perform hundreds, even thousands of exercises with dumbbells.

    Ladies, a set of 3 to 20 pounds will be more than sufficient. Guys, a set from 10 to 40 pounds should do the trick (for now). I've also heard wonderful things about Powerblock dumbbells for space-saving, although I don't have first hand experience to cite.
    If you also get yourself a bench and clear out a little corner in your favorite room, then you're ready to roll!

    Here it is - The beginner's all-dumbbell routine:

    1. Dumbbell bench press (chest)

    2. Dumbbell side lateral raise (shoulders)

    3. One arm dumbbell row (upper back)

    4. Dumbbell extension behind head (triceps)

    5. Dumbbell Bicep curl (biceps)

    6. Dumbbell Lunges (thighs)

    7. Dumbbell One leg calf raise (calves)

    8. Dumbbell leg curl (hamstrings)

    9. Crunches (abs)

    There you have it. Simple and effective. At home or in a gym.

    If you're just starting, do this routine for 2-3 sets of 8-12 reps per exercise, except calves and abs which you can go up to 20 reps. Rest 1 minute between sets. You'll train your whole body in each workout, 2 -3 three days per week, non-consecutive days.

    After 3 - 6 months, you'll probably need to add exercises and move up to a split routine. (So I guess I have to do another article, called 8 tips for intermediates: How to keep going).

    8. WEIGHT TRAINING IS NOT OPTIONAL - IT'S MANDATORY!

    It's is a common misconception that you should start with aerobic workouts and lose the fat first before adding weight training.
    Unfortunately, the best you can hope for from diet and aerobics alone is to become a "skinny fat person." You may lose weight, but you'll have a poor muscle to fat ratio and a "soft" appearance.

    Obviously, weight training is the key to developing strength and muscle. What few people realize is that weight training also increases fat loss, although it occurs indirectly.

    Weight training is anaerobic and burns carbohydrates (sugar).Cardio is aerobic and therefore burns fat. So it seems logical to focus on aerobic training for fat loss.
    However, something interesting happens "beneath the surface" when you lift weights. Weight training increases your lean body mass - aerobic training does not.
    Low calorie dieting and aerobic training without weight lifting can make you lose lean body mass. If you lose lean body mass, your metabolism slows down, and this makes it harder to lose fat.

    If you increase your lean body mass, you increase your ********* rate and this makes it easier to lose fat. With a faster metabolism, you'll burn more fat all day long - even while you're sleeping!

    If you have limited time, and your main priority is fat loss, then do a very brief weight training program and spend the majority of your time concentrating on cardio. But never neglect the weights completely - always do both, and if possible, devote equal attention to each.
    Good read... and I agree with you. When I first started getting back into my healthy lifestyle, I did workouts at home, every single day 1-2 hours a day, I slowly replaced watching TV with doing pilates, instead of renting movies and laying on the couch all day, I went to the gym and played racquet ball and swam with my kid. Eventually I said ok, I think I am ready to hit the gym again, like I use to. I decided to get a PT, to help re-educate me, and re-train me from the bad habits I picked up over the course of the years living a very unhealthy lifestyle.

    My Journey has just begun again, but this time I am determined to stick with it, I keep setting attainable goals for myself monthly, and when I reach them, I set a whole new set of them.

    Exerise, exercise, exercise! Exercise increases your metabolism and burning off excess fat. When is the best time to exercise? Our metabolism slows down about 8 hours after we wake up, so 30 minutes of exercise in the evening, before dinner will increase your metabolism for about two to three more hours just when it was starting to slow down. This produces a significant increase in fat burned off, even after the exercise is over.
