If you don't ever want to go into a gym, you can still get in fantastic shape. You can set aside time to go walking, play interactive games with your kids, go to the park and have a workout on the play structures and benches. That will get you healthy. Also consider trying yoga, pilates, or a sport with friends at your fitness level.
Going forward I think my question to people wanting weight loss is going to be "how did you sleep?" I can't believe how many people leave sleep out of the weight loss equation. And when you are sleeping better, what's the other best weapon? Well a mattress is to sleep what a food scale is to nutrition.
I travel a lot, both professionally and personally, and although it is definitely more challenging to eat healthy on the road, it is far from impossible. At the end of the day it comes down to what is more important for you: your unique health and lifestyle goals, or saving a few minutes and just taking what society lays out for you.

Are you as thin, healthy, fit or toned as you want to be? What if I told you getting where you want to be was pretty much a mathematical equation. There are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat, that is a scientific fact. To take one pound of fat off of your body you need to do one of two things, or a combination.
Looking back at all the women that have come to me over the last 10 years for advice on losing weight I can tell you that one of the reasons that most of them fail is lack of consistency. Sounds simple but it is the truth. Try your best not to get fixated on the scale and have high expectations right off the bat. Rather, give yourself time to make exercising a part of your life and the magic will happen.
Fitness experts used to promise people a six-pack if we wanted to get them to buy something fitness related. The fitness of the nation has deteriorated so much that people know they are a long way from a six-pack. That's why the basis of weight loss company Visalus' top-tier success is a brand new "Project 10" program.
I think this new gastric gadget aspireassist is ridiculous. It appears that the gadget inserts a port that allows for some of the food that is consumed to be siphoned out before it is digested.
