My research shows if you workout to the music you like, you will workout to the maximum time you have (will not cut the workout short). The intensity you workout is not predicated on the music you listen to, rather the confidence you have in your workout (set a goal for each exercise, and document your progression).View Thread
Â·After your first plate, wait 20 minutes before eating again
Â·Don't eat in the same room where the food is being served
Â·After everyone is served, cover and store the food (Out of sight, out of mind)
Â·Chew gum or brush teeth after meal (Anything that will leave a minty taste in your mouth)
Â·Drink Plenty of water before, during and after meal
Â·Don't consume all of your calories in liquids
Â·Aim for 10 minutes of physical activity after the meal (Go on a walk, football game with the family, etc.) â€¦ You won't eat as much if you know you are going to be doing something physical afterward.View Thread
Can you find a friend to encourage you? Or better yet a personal trainer that can help you identify a routine that fits your schedule and personal needs. Most gyms and even your local YMCA can have resources like that. It doesn't have to be expensive and is well worth it if it helps you make progress on your goals.View Thread
