FitDay For PC – Review

If you know me at all, you know I'm a big fan of calorie counting. There's something so motivating about knowing how many calories you eat vs. how many you burn -- and calorie counting helps me avoid certain foods when I *know* those extra calories are going straight to my hips! Calorie counting can be a real eye-opening experience if you've never done it before. It can take some getting used to, but it's definitely worth it. There are lots of online calorie counters/fitness trackers, but today I'm going to talk about a downloadable software: FitDay for PC. FitDay for PC is a software that's easily installed on your PC, so you don't need to be online to use it. You don't have to worry about slow connections or logging in, or losing data if your Internet connection times out. Not only can you track your food and exercise with FitDay PC, you can track things like your body measurements and your mood -- and that'll help you see the relationship between your mood and your food! This can help a lot when it comes to cravings and comfort food triggers.

3500 Calories To Lose A Pound - Is This Formula All Wrong?

Most fitness conscious people have heard that there are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat, so if you create a deficit of 3500 calories in a week, you lose a pound of weight. If you create a deficit of 7000 calories in a week, you lose two pounds, and so on. Right? Well, not so fast…

Dr. Kevin Hall, an investigator at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda has done some interesting research about the mechanisms regulating human body weight. He recently published a new paper in the International Journal of Obesity that throws a wrench in works of the “3500 calories to lose a pound” idea.

How Many Extra Meals Are You Carrying Around?

Here's a different way to look at all the extra fat you're carrying around. See, your body stores any extra calories you eat as fat, right? Your body thinks, "Hey, it might be awhile before we get some food, so let's stash away all this extra energy."

The problem is, for most of you reading this, the next meal is not very far away. You don't even have to go out to "hunt and gather" -- chances are you'll "walk and raid (the fridge)" or "drive and order (some fast food)."

Is Your Exercise Equipment Gathering Dust While Your Hips Gather Fat?

It's such a common occurrence, it's become a cliche: you spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, on a treadmill, exercise bike or an elliptical machine, only to see it gather enough dust to make your mother weep when she visits -- or worse yet, you can't even see the darn thing because it's a rather expensive clothes hanger. Out of sight, out of mind seems to be your motto.

When I bought my elliptical machine, I was determined to get my money's worth. Who wants to spend that much money on an overgrown door stopper? So, if you can't even remember what your exercise equipment looks like, I've got 4 tips to help you dust it off and start using it again.
