Top 10 Boot Camp Secrets to Success

Alright guys, we’ve decided that it’s time to give up all of our well-guarded secrets and let you in on our top 10 tricks to really make your boot camp training a success.

1. Get Started Early.

If you’re one of those people that has a tendency to come up with some really great “reasons” (read: excuses) to skip out on your boot camp sessions then your best bet is to get started early in the morning. A recent study showed that people who get their training in first thing in the day are 75% more likely to stick with it and make it part of their routine.

2. Set Realistic Goals.

How many times have you had such extreme expectations of yourself that feels like you’re always failing and falling short of your goals? Instead of telling yourself that you need to lose 20 lbs in the next 4 weeks, take a more “realistic approach”? that let’s you feel a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment every time you achieve one of your goals. Remember, even though boot camp training is intense and can burn over 800 calories (seriously) in a session, you still need to set out milestones that can be reasonably reached and even exceeded. Make your boot camp training goals S.M.A.R.T.: Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely.

3. Get Enough Sleep.

If you’re doing an early-morning boot camp session, it’s important that you get a decent night’s rest before you start training. Staying up late and then loading up on caffeine and other stimulants in order to boost your energy is a surefire recipe for a burn-out. Try to get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night and you’ll see a massive increase in your boot camp training results.

4. Find A Training Partner.

Sadly, we all know how easy it can be to break promises to ourselves, but it’s a lot harder to let someone else down. Joining a boot camp program with a friend means that you’ll have someone to kick your butt out of bed in the morning when you’re feeling lazy, and to enjoy all those chicken and steamed broccoli dinners. Which brings us to our next point…

5. Don’t Sabotage Your Results By Pigging Out!

We know, sometimes you just can’t turn down that piece of cake or that slice of pizza, and there’s nothing wrong with the occasional “cheat meal”?, but just think of that meal as it’s equivalent in burpees, pushups and crunches. Two slices of pepperoni pizza and a can of coke adds up to over 700 calories! One weekend of indulging in your cravings can wipe out an entire weeks worth of boot camp training.

6. Do Extra Cardio.

Living in a city like Victoria, we’re surrounded by endless opportunities to work up a sweat while enjoying the outdoors. Kayaking, hiking, cycling, jogging, mountain biking… there are so many ways you can burn extra calories every day that don’t involve staring at the wall while …

Weight Loss – Obesity, Diets and Holistic Health

Diets are defined in the traditional sense of following a specific eating plan for weight loss / obesity.

Sure, following any of the hundreds of plans that have been promoted in the last few decades may result in some weight loss, but the benefits typically do not last.

Sadly, there is no magic bullet. No, not even those prescription medications that are common these days. Sure, they may result in shedding some pounds, but I've been observing nasty side effects in people that use them, and without lifestyle changes are made, the pounds will come back.

The average American keeps getting heavier, especially children, and the new miracle diets keep coming, and the average American keeps getting heavier, especially children, and …

I suspect you get my point.

But wait, I have this diet that works and I offer a guarantee and … Gotcha! Sorry, there are no simple, miracle solutions / plans. There was never any and there never will be.

I am happy to report that what does work for weight management, always has and always will work, is this: careful food selections, self control, occasional splurging (yahoo!), Acceptance of how God made you, and eating slower, smaller more Numerous meals.

This is the holistic approach and it's what I advocate.

Why do not you see this type eating advice advertised on TV or in magazines anywhere? It's because nobody makes any money when you do it. Surprise! In fact, many people will make less money when you follow a healthy holistic eating lifestyle, sometimes doctors because you will likely be ill less often.

Please become aware that the media and it's advertisers are becoming increasingly talented at getting and keeping our attention, particularly when it comes to our physical appearance. They place pictures of beautiful people with gleaming muscles (they are oiled), rippling six pack abdomens (they are airbrushed or do dozens of sit-ups immediately before the picture is taken), or even yet the people are taking steroid type drugs to enhance Their physiques. These "models" are not representative of we typical humans. You and I need to be wise to this, even though we enjoy looking.

Also, be wary of some of the food products, their claims, and what's in them.

The top 10 deceiving "healthy" foods that lead to weight gain and other health problems:

– margarine, because it lacks the essential oils necessary for a healthy cardiovascular system.
