Writing about health and fitness, I admit I can get a little overly philosophical.

I looked over at her running on the treadmill and saw someone who’d made a small transformation to her body.
Almost 50% of people who join a gym and start a new fitness program quit within 6 months. The main reason people give-up and stop exercising is lack of results, so joining a health club alone is clearly not the solution for the 60% of Americans who say they are trying to lose weight.
Your mom shares it. Your best friend shares it. Your spouse shares it. Your favorite magazine shares it: diet and weight loss advice. And more likely than not, all the advice they’ve shared has varied greatly from true (eat your veggies) to downright silly (sprinkle this powder on your pizza and the fat “melts” away) and from one person to the next.
Dieting is hard enough; you never know what will work for you and what will not. However, doing small, simple things can really help you achieve large results. Here is a list to get you started. 1. Don’t skip breakfast. 2. Eat for your body type. Figure out which way (high protein, 50-50, or more veggies) makes you feel good.
