For example, you can exercise to burn 250 calories and cut 250 calories from your diet.

than a year now. I started out by doing just pure cardio and I lost around 12pounds in a span of 3 months. Since I wasn’t a big guy in the first place, I lost fat pretty much from every part of the body except my belly. And then my interest changed to lifting. So after 2-3 months of cardio, I basically just moved to lifting and fell in love with it. And since I had started lifting, I was eating good amount of food daily to keep my protein intake high. It’s been a year now since I have been lifting. I am getting good muscular shape in every part of the body except my belly. My belly is still the same size as it was one year ago. I just don’t know how to get rid of it. I want to get ripped and have a

Listen to your mum – dieting is faddish. Instead, improve the “quite” to “all” healthy and eat only nutritionally balanced, healthy foods.

I just wanted to say I love this article, its so informative! And I’m on all these supplements and I love them all. I have never felt so full and alert before.
