Secrets to Fat Loss (Weight Loss)

If you eat more Calories than you burn, you gain fat - no matter where the Calories come from.

No food will burn fat. The only way to burn fat is to do "anything" other than nothing (exercise).

Steps 1, 2 & 3:

There are 6 things you need to know before you can succeed with your goal(s).

  1. How many Calories do you burn daily?
  2. How many Calories do you eat daily?
  3. What is your maximum heart rate?
  4. What is your hear rate while exercising?
  5. What is your fat mass to lean mass ratio?
  6. Are nutrition requirements satisfied by what you eat?

Find the answers to steps 1 and 2 using our proprietary calculator. Then move on to step 3.

Body Fat

Knowing your body fat percentage is extremely important information you need in order to attain your goals. Armed with your true body fat percentage, you will know if you are considered "healthy" or...well, fat. Knowing whether you are gaining or losing fat, or muscle, will tell you if you are exercising and eating right.. The higher your fat mass the harder your entire body has to work - for everything.

High body fat forces your heart (and other bodily functions) to work much harder than it should. If you have never "conditioned" your heart (the fact that you are asking yourself what that means indicates you have never conditioned your heart...) you could be putting yourself at risk. Keep your body fat under 20% and your body will thank you.

Review the "Body Fat Chart" in order to see what percentage is healthy for your age.
