Lose Weight the Right Way

I have to give Jordin Sparks a round of applause. She went about her weight loss the right way. She made it a lifestyle change. She lost 50 lbs in 18 months, which is the right amount of time to loose 50 lbs if done safe. She broke it down into three phases. No starvation nothing extreme. She focused on mixing exercise and cardio for workouts. She controlled her food portions and did not snack mindlessly. When she did snack it was something healthy like apple chips, berries, and Greek yogurt. One of the biggest things i noticed is that she maintained a positive attitude and look for quick results. Another hand clap for Jordin Sparks. Great Job!

Battling Back Pain

Unfortunately back pain is very common in the U.S. Most people go about treating it the wrong way. It is very common for people with back pain to be less active. We tend to lay around not wanting to worsen the pain. But the less active we become the more we increase stiffness, weaken the muscle and become prone to injury and pain. The solution is to opt for low impact exercises, increase stretching, and increase your water intake.

Avoid Crave Snacking

In order to decrease crave snacking, you have to avoid simple sugars and refined foods. Refined foods lack the proper nutrients your body needs. To compensate your body wants to eat more to get the what it really needs: vitamins, minerals, protein, good fats, and complex carbohydrates. When you eat refined foods, you have to eat more calories to get the right amount of nutrients which leads to weight gain.
