For any weight loss program to be successful, you need to have the right diet. You may fail if you fail to plan properly for your diet. Spend as much time as you can when planning for your diet. You may want to adopt the following approach.
First, always have very clear goals. Be specific – how many pounds are you going to lose? How long do you think you need? Be ambitious, but keep your plan realistic.
With clear goals, it’s easier to work on how to reach those goals. It’s a simple numbers game at this stage. If you burn more calories than you take in, you are going to lose weight. Continue to work hard and keep the pounds at bay. Keep that in mind.
Make a list of all your favorite foods. Make a quick search for the amount of calories that each food contain. Add up the numbers and find out how much calories you are taking in each day. It also make more sense to take smaller meals, but in higher frequency. As an illustration, take 5 meals per day instead of 3 big meals.
Make sure that you include lots of fruits, vegetables, and poultry in your diet list.
Your diet is central to your entire weight loss program. Many want to lose weight successfully, but they don’t know what a good weight loss diet looks like. How about a low GI diet? Such questions are swimming in their head, and they have no idea what they should do.
First, I must mention that to choose the right weight loss diet, there are several issues that you must consider. Don’t just consider the amount of calories in your diet. There is more. Most people don’t realize that they have different needs, so they need different diet plans.
We all need different energy levels each day. For example, some people do not exercise at all. Some exercise two to three times a week. There are people who live a very active lifestyle. So you see, different people need different amounts of energy to cope with the daily activities.
You would be considered successful if you can work out what you need to eat to lose weight, while at the same time, stay healthy. A moderately active person needs about 2000 calories a day to maintain the same energy levels. Do not go below this number. Taking less than that will affect your health adversely. It’s not wise to deprive your body like that.
Instead, it would be wise to plan based on your own daily needs. If you are taking 2000 calories a day, try aiming for 1900 calories a day. A better diet plan would be to try eating the same amount of calories, but you increase your activity level. This way, your muscles get a good workout, and you lose weight too.
Notice that you can’t totally reduce the amount of calories you consume to zero. Your body still needs to take in a certain amount of calories. In other words, you would be better off trying to burn off fats than to just cut away the intake.

Viagra causes increased blood flow to the extremities (the ones that matter!) and the drug is administered orally about one hour before being required. It is generally sold in varying strengths, either 25mg, 50mg or 100mg strengths according to an individuals needs.
One issue to be aware of is that, in common with most drugs, Viagra can have side effects. The most well known are headaches and sometimes temporary problems with vision perception such as light perception or colour perception. The most interesting side effect with the use of Viagra and other similar medications comes with the latest usage report which shows that users of such drugs are significantly more likely to break a
condom in normal use than non users!
The American study looked at a total of 440 male volunteers who regularly use condoms and 12% of Viagra style medication users reported a condom breakage, compared with only 5% of non users. Not surprisingly the research also showed that the Viagra users had sex for longer and therefore the probability of a breakage was significantly increased!
The use of erectile dysfunction drugs increases the blood flow to those important regions and the erection is stronger, harder and lasts longer as a result. The researchers commented that this would obviously put more strain on the condom and therefore this is probably the reason why more breakages have been reported. Critics of the research say that the sample size (i.e. the number of volunteers in the study!) is too low to accurately assess the differences in breakages and that other reasons for breakage may also have an impact. These reasons might be because the condom was not the correct size, it may have been used incorrectly or it may just be of poor quality.
Although Viagra has some negative side effects, it also has been shown to reduce hormonal stress on the heart by up to 50%. It is thought that this is because the drug causes blood vessels to expand which in turn reduces the excess amount of blood required and the force required to pump it around the body. A very useful side effect here is that it can also prevent and reduce the effects of high blood pressure, which is a significant killer in western society.
Research has shown the effect to be marked and may even include a reversal of the effects of high blood pressure such as heart enlargement or hypertrophy. The findings were reported in Nature magazine earlier in the year, and the research was conducted on thirty five volunteers. The results seemed to indicate that the performance of the heart was improved by slowing down the heartbeat which resulted in an increase in blood flow, although the researchers admitted that larger scale studies would be required to confirm the findings.

America has always taken fitness to extremes. In the late 60s when we found out continuous movement burns fat and calories, we began having more running races. We took a 5k and added an 8 and a 10k. Then came half marathons, marathons, triathlons, eco challenge and more.
The latest fitness craze is cross fit which de-emphasizes form and proper technique. Proponents of these workouts have often stated, “The workouts can kill you”. Unfortunately, litigation has challenged the use of these movements.
While some within the industry seem to endorse and encourage the use of these techniques, we at Mike George Fitness System emphasizes the use of proper form and technique. Consequently, we can not endorse any technique that de-emphasizes form.
Health is our primary concern. Our programs build you up, not beat you up. MGFS uses high intensity programs, once the client has mastered the basics. Form is still maintained, even in the more difficult exercises. It is not only prudent, it is a fundamental requirement to maintain safety.
We have many different programs including active rest, push and pull, structural integrity, learning, super slow, sport specific, conditioning, circuit, hypertrophy and speed/power/agility.
