Steve has been giving some great advice lately about those extra calories and how to avoid them.  Simple choices can make a big difference between gaining and maintaining.  Steve tweets that "consuming just 100 calories more than your body needs per day will cause a weight gain of 12.5 pounds per year."  How often have each of us made the choice to go for that extra scoop of ice cream or second glass of wine?  Those extra calories add up and add up fast!

So Steve sent us a tweet about blueberries.  He told us that studies show you can achieve two pounds of extra fat loss per month just by eating a 1/2 cup of blueberries per day.  Well that is easy right?  Blueberries are not just good for weight loss, they are packed full of health benefits for your entire body...and they taste great too!

Steve recently gave us some tips on how important sleep can be when trying to lose weight and get healthy. While sleep is critical to a healthy body, 7 ½ hours for the average person being the magic number, there are some other benefits of sleep you may not be aware of that we would like to share.

The most basic way to lose weight is to cut calories. Steve tells us the magic number we should cut is 500. This is Diet 101, no surprise, but how do you do it and how long do you have to do in before you see results? Combining the cut in calories with ZimFit will not only help you achieve weight loss faster, you will also gain strength and add muscle at the same time. 

An Apple a Day Keeps More Than the Doctor Away

Steve recently sent a tweet about eating 3 apples a day, specifically one before each main meal, to help curb your cravings and hunger pains. The reason for this is that apples contain fiber that causes you to feel full, so you end up eating less in your main meal. This useful tip can help many having trouble with portion control since the fuller you feel, the sooner your brain will let you know and you can automatically control your eating by eating less. Not only will you help your waistline, but you are getting additional fiber in your diet too!
