I read an article about the rise of Veganism within the celebrity community and how many dieticians are saying that it’s not simply a fad. We’ve seen actors like Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and even Brad Pitt come out and for various reasons adopt this style of eating. Amongst the benefits, it’s stated that in general Vegans have lower BMI’s and generally will weigh less, which is true…
But I think we need a little clarity.
The main issue I have is with the BMI scale. As you can see from the photo below, I am considered obese with a BMI More >
I’m confused! I’m new to exercise and I don’t understand the differences between interval training, HIIT, Tabata and circuit training.
A friend told me I should be doing Tabata training three days per week for 20 – 45 minutes so I can lose weight.
Can you give me some suggestions and explain the differences?

I need to address the issue of Tabata training first because truthfully this More >
I turned to a vegetarian lifestyle 5 years ago for medical reasons. I lost over 50 pounds and dramatically improved my health markers.
I also started a workout plan of weights and cardio around the same time (doctor prescribed) and I’ve seen results but I’m not where I want to be.

Any ideas? Suggestion?
I’m 25 pounds overweight and I’m going to finally try to lose it. In the past I’ve tried every diet – Zone, South Beach, Atkins and I did fairly well on Weight Watchers.
My question is about calories and whether or not I should count them? I find it really difficult to track my calories or count ‘points’ and it makes me obsess over what I’ve eaten or am going to eat. And so far I haven’t been successful at keeping the weight off.
I read your Ask The Experts with Heather Frey and she says she doesn’t count calories but just More >
I’ve struggled with my weight for 10 years now, really since I had my son. I’ve tried every diet, every workout and although I’ve lost weight and come close to my goal once before, I’ve always gained it back. I’m 42 now and I feel like I’m on borrowed time before it becomes impossible to shed the weight.
I just started working out with a trainer and my gym and he told me about a diet he’s used before. He said I can eat as much protein as I want, along with anything green, except peas. Have you heard of More >
