Top 5 Weight Loss Questions
1) How do I lose weight? Eat less calories than you use throughout the day. The problem is how do you know how many calories you used per day? You do not. And that is a problem. I would suggest to you, that if you want to lose weight, you MUST at least keep track of the calories that you eat per day. If you make a hamburger on the grill with some cheese. How many calories is that? There are apps and free on-line tools that I would recommend to log and keep track of these items for you. Most of them have a database that you can choose from, which will allow you to keep track. Honestly, it would take a lot of math to calculate your daily calories on your own.
2) How do I tone up? Lift Weights. If you want to be more toned or firmer or tight or whatever you want to call it, you need muscle mass. Lift weights
3) How do I reduce cellulite? You cannot spot fat reduce. Meaning you can’t do 1000 sit ups every night and think you’ll lose fat in that particular area. You CANNOT spot fat reduce. You can reduce cellulite by losing weight.

5) How much cardio do I need to do to lose weight? No clue and nobody can tell you. 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 minutes, all day….the answer is never exact. The true answer is in #1.
