Fat 2 Fit #116 – The Real Skinny on Weight Loss Centers


Written on January 26, 2011 – 11:58 pm | by Russ Turley

We’re a few weeks into the New Year and the weight loss clinics are in full rush mode.  Both Jeff and Russ have noticed an increase in the number of commercials  pushing their programs.  Don’t be fooled!  Stick with your goals and stick to your plan!

Jana wrote in asking if it’s okay to fast one day a week.  She also wanted to know if it’s okay if she has a cheat/binge day.  She’s lost weight in the past with these techniques and keeps going back to them when she gains back the weight.   We go over all the things you should do to restart your metabolism.  She was also on the Dr. Bernstein diet for a while.  She shares some of th 400-700 calorie recipes/meals with use.  They’re small, it won’t take long.

Mike asks about eating healthy on a budget.  We found some interesting information on eating healthy both in Canada and in the United States.

On the Web Report, Jeff has an article with some pictures you have to see.  What looks more attractive, someone with a tan, or someone who eats well?  Decide for yourself.  Russ shares an Online Multiplayer Fitness Game.  Level up by running a 5K or lifting a new all time high in the gym.  Nerdy!

    For anyone just wanting to click on the link to the Nerdy Fitness – here it is: http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2010/04/12/the-11-rules-of-the-nerd-fitness-rebel-army/

    I must say I was disappointed with it because I thought they literally were playing an online game with characters modified by acheiving fitness goals. I have son who I thought would enjoy that (and could use the challenge). But all I could figure out at the site is that you are “leveling” yourself up by engaging in good fitness challenges. And, it is a support forum for those partaking in their “fitness rebellion”.

    It’s pretty cute though.
