Better Butt Workout – Part 2

butt exercisesThe Booty for Life better butt workout was getting a LOT of attention in the last 7 days, and I thank you all for your feedback on the program. This week, I have the second part of the program, and weeks 5-8 for you.

In my last 7 days, I’ve been to Atlanta and now I’m in Orlando, and I have an admission to make…I kind of screwed up my vegan diet experiment by eating pancakes, but I’m still sticking to the plan and it’s been quite easy to do.

After this weekend, I’ll be done traveling for a bit, and I’ll have more time to stay at home and work on some fat loss workouts for you, as well as cool fat loss expert interviews like the one I did this week with Tony Horton, creator of P90X. More details about that in a second…stay tuned.

Sunday – Plan, Shop & Prepare
Do 30 minutes of activity and then plan, shop, & prepare.

One of the most common questions I get is about figuring out how many calories you need…and so I created this simple 3-step method to determining how many calories you need to lose fat.

1) Improve the quality of your current diet by eliminating added sugar and eating more whole, natural foods (fruits, vegetables, raw nuts).

Research shows that contrary to “popular gym rat” belief, that adding both fruit and nuts to your diet does not cause weight gain and in fact helps with weight LOSS.

2) Use to determine how many calories you are eating each day on your improved diet.

3) If you are not losing weight, reduce your calorie intake by 300 calories per day. If you ARE losing weight, no need to change anything.

That’s it! So much better than counting calories for the rest of your life. Eating better food and cutting out sugar will help you lose weight fast.truth about abs
