How many times have you said that before? This is the time of the year when you start getting quite nervous and even guilty about some of the overeating you’ve indulged in over the past few weeks. Did you drink too much? Did you have one too many appetizers? How many slices of pumpkin pie did you eat? Ahhhhh! It’s so frustrating to have to set “weight loss” as a recurring goal (year after year after year after year) and never achieve your goals to a healthy weight, don’t you think? Most people take a bit of a break from exercising during the holidays — they either bring down the intensity of their workout or cut back on the number of days they train because there are simply way too many parties to attend and too many Holiday dinners to consume. But by the time we reach the beginning of a brand New Year, a lot of people are ready to get their fitness regime back on track (again). It’s hard to ignore the loud cry of media outlets reminding you that this is the time of the year to go back to the gym, dust off that exercise equipment, buy the latest celebrity trainer DVD program, stock your fridge with veggies, give up sugary sodas, cut out carbs, cut out sugar and give desserts. I know the hardest part is knowing where to start, so I’ve listed a few resources that can help you get started on your way to a slimmer body and a healthier weight:
1. Change your mind, change your body, change your life!
When it comes to getting into better shape, losing weight, having a better relationship with your body or being happier … you really have to be clear about what you want and you have to be able to see the end results. Trust me, there is not one aspect of your life that you cannot ameliorate when you use daily visualization! If you’ve never tried visualization to help you get a healthy weight and a healthy body, you should really check out this easy visualization program: >>>Click here to find out more and read the complete post where I share my own ah-ha moment:
2. Could the food in your kitchen help you burn fat?
I have a strict rule when it comes to certain food weaknesses: “If I don’t buy it, I cannot eat it”. I LOVE chips a lot. I only buy chips from the natural health section of my grocery store that don’t contain any saturated fats, but still chips are chips in the sense that they are potatoes or corn that has been fried. I’ve tried baked chips and they don’t do it for me. I do buy chips, but I don’t have chips in my home all the time because I know I’d inevitably eat them. The point of my story is that you buy the foods that are making you fat and you might not even be aware of this major obstacle preventing you from reaching a healthy weight. I read an incredibly useful book designed to help you understand the foods in your kitchen that make you fat and the foods in your kitchen that can burn fat! >>>Click here to find out more and read the complete post where I share my thoughts about the book
3. Why do 97% of diets fail?
Is that not a great answer considering how many people get on a new diet each and every day of the year? Renonwed weight loss expert Dr. Meltzer reveals his finding on permanent weight loss. At the time I had published the original post, Dr. Meltzer was conducting a teleseminar, but you can still listen to the call on his website (just click the link below). >>>Click here to find out more and read the complete post where you’ll find the link
4. With the right motivation, you CAN lose weight!
***Over 232,000 people have found the motivation to lose weight! Read below how they did it!*** Okay, here’s the deal: you’ve got 20, 30 or maybe 50 lbs to lose. You’ve tried many times before, but it’s just not worked very well because you most likely lost your focus or you became discouraged. You just kept seeing yourself in the mirror at a weight that makes you unhappy and you haven’t got a clue how you’ll turn things around in your favour. So what about having a photo of you with the weight off? Do you think that seeing yourself 20, 30 and even 50 lbs thinner would be a huge boost in your weight lose journey? I think you’d be blown away by the results you could achieve because every time you lose one pound you get closer to the image you have on your computer screensaver or to that photo stuck on your fridge! >>> This really brilliant tool will provide you with a photo of yourself looking 20, 30 and even 50 lbs thinner! >>>Click here to find out more and see the before and after photos: See yourself thinner
5. How to enjoy weight loss effortlessly
I have to say that I was quite impressed with this simple method to help you lose weight and achieve a healthy weight. This is a no-gimmick, no-non-sense, no-sleek-trick method created by a doctor who has helped countless people get over their blockages about weight. Oh, did I mention this method has helped a former Biggest Loser participant lose the weight he had put back on after the competition? I’ve written a fairly detailed post about this method and I hope this will give you more details to find out more about a method that could really change your whole head space when it comes to losing weight. >>>Click here to find out more: How to enjoy weight loss effortlessly
6. Diet BootCamp with Dr. Jonny Bowden
“According to the Center for Disease Control over 60 per cent of Americans are overweight, and over 30 per cent of Americans are obese.” The statistics for Canada and the U.K. are not much different! The rapidly rising rate of obesity is of great concern because obesity is a risk factor for several potentially fatal diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, hypertension, osteoarthritis, and some cancers. Dr. Jonny Bowden is a maverick in his field and this is due in part to his unique training. Although Dr. Jonny is a certified personal trainer, he also has a PhD in nutrition and a Master’s degree in psychology. If you know you need to lose weight, and you’ve tried and failed at diets in the past (who hasn’t?), then I strongly urge you to check out Jonny Bowden’s Diet Boot Camp. Dr. Jonny Bowden will also give three great bonuses to Boot Camp participants! You can find out more about the BootCamp here: Dr. Jonny Bowden’s Diet BootCamp
7. Gourmet Nutrition Cookbook
Gourmet Nutrition is THE cookbook for the “fit food lover”. It’s packed with tasty looking recipes. The cookbook was written by Dr. John M. Berardi, Michael Williams and Kristina Andrew. Dr. John Berardi is the brain behind the Precision Nutrition concept and I can see why so many people get results from his Precision Nutrition weight management programs. The recipes from the Gourmet Nutrition cookbook are easy to prepare, nutritious and they are perfect for people like myself who LOVE to eat, but who are conscious of what they eat. The recipes from Gourmet Nutrition are the perfect combination of nutrition and taste. The book also includes loads of menu plans and it even highlights portion sizes for women versus men. You can read the original post here: Gourmet Nutrition is my current new favourite cookbook!
8. Free Cookbooks from Precision Nutrition and Gourmet Nutrition
I’m a big fan of Gourmet Nutrition recipes and I could not believe that Precision Nutrition was giving out samples of their delicious recipes via these two e-books. This is a great way to get introduced to a whole new way of eating and nourishing your body! These are some of the best and most nutritious recipe e-books you’ll find anywhere on the internet. These recipes have been created by Dr. John Berardi who is a nutrition researcher, coach and consultant for 15 years. He’s worked with thousands of clients from around the world … from Olympic athletes … to cardiac patients … to ordinary people trying to lose weight … and you can now take advantage of his in dept knowledge of the foods that will keep you aging well.

8. Food Matters DVD
In my experience as a beauty and aging-well expert, there aren’t enough skincare products on the market or Botox Cosmetic® to help you retain your youthfulness if you eat fast food and junk food day-in day-out. “Food Matters” will shake you to the core and you can either be inspired and motivated by the movie to change the way you eat or you can ignore the message (plain and simple). There is a quote in the movie that’s quite sarcastic, but so powerful: “¼ of what you eat keeps you alive and ¼ of what you eat keeps your doctor alive” (yikes … that’s not saying much of the medical industry). The “Food Matters” DVD is only $29.95 and it’s a small price to pay to have a nutritional coach at home taking your hand and guiding you in your food choices. You can find out more about the DVD here: Food Matters
9. Precision Nutrition Program
This nutritional program will help you get the body you’ve always wanted but that has eluded you up to now due to not having all the facts about fitness, food and nutrition. Dr. John Berardi’s Precision Nutrition program uses the same techniques he’s used his own personal coaching client and athletes to build a healthy and lean body (at any age!). You’ll get help figuring everything from female fat loss to male muscle gain and you’ll also learn exactly how to get to your chosen goal as fast as possible, and stay there permanently. The Precision Nutrition system is a complete program that includes the following step-by-step tips: * 7 guidebooks * A gourmet cookbook * Access to the Precision Nutrition online digital audio/video library * Access to the Precision Nutrition an online membership Once you’ve decided on what type of body you really want and once you’ve made the commitment, Precision Nutrition can help you achieve those goals. You can learn more about here: Precision Nutrition System
10. Fit over 40
– Yes, you can have a hot body after your 40th birthday … and your 50th … and your 60th … and your 70th … and even your 80th! If you take care of your body, your body will respond favourably with each passing year. If you just don’t know where to start, you might want to read “Fit over 40″. Jon Benson has created an e-book specifically dedicated to men and women over 40 who wanted reshape and redefine their bodies. Jon Benson’s Fit over 40 concept is one of the most popular ones.

Jon Benson and his list of clients over 40 (including his 80 year old mother) are proof of that you CAN be fit at any age. Click here to order Fit over 40
11. The Organic Transformation
This program is a two-step program to weight loss and wellness and an introduction to a healthier way of eating and a healthier way of living. I think the major problem with yo-yo diets and this endless search for the ideal weight lies in the fact that 95% of the North American population has no clue as to what they should and should not eat and the “WHY”. I like this book because it follows my own views about food and diet. I don’t own a scale “never have” and I usually know how much I weight from my annual check-ups and then during the year I evaluate how my clothes feel to determine if I’ve gained or lost weight. I never obsess about foot (unless I’m put in a situation where I cannot find healthy food choices to eat) and I always am very conscious of which foods I buy and which foods I eat. The Organic Transformation course teaches you everything you need to know to start losing weight and it also gives you a 22-day meal plan with recipes to help you get to your ideal weight! What I also like about this course is the fact that you also get a bonus of 4 motivational podcasts to keep you going. If you want to know more about this healthy transformation program, click here: The Organic Transformation
12. Top Secret Fat Loss Secret
Dr. Suzanne Gudakunst has a very different approach to weight loss than most doctors. She believes that most people are fat because they are not addressing some of the real issues preventing them from losing belly fat and trimming down to a healthier weight. She’s very direct in her approach and doesn’t hesitate to be quite bold. In fact, I’ll let you experience her boldness yourself with this statement: “The reason you can’t lose weight has nothing to do with your will-power, over-eating or the right diet! … the reason you are fat and unhealthy is because you have disgusting plaque and horrible little ‘critters’ living in your guts … and now I’m going to show you how to get rid of all of it so you can shed 10 lbs, 25 lbs, 50 lbs even 100 lbs or more – and keep it off forever!!!” If you want to know more about Dr. Suzanne Gudakunst, click here: Top Secret Fat Loss Secret
13. Burn the Fat Feed The Muscle
Burn The Fat is a fat loss Bible and has been a perennial best-seller since 2003! After six years on the market this course is still popular because Tom Venuto provides fat burning secrets of the world’s best bodybuilders and fitness models! Tom Venuto’s program is based on the same exact methodology as those models (the ones you see on the cover of all those fitness magazines) use to reach digit body fat levels and achieve rock-hard muscle definition that makes them look like walking anatomy charts. In this course, Tom Venuto will teach you how to lose fat without killing your metabolism, lose fat without drugs and lose fat without supplements. Tom Venuto’s system is base on his 24 years of bodybuilding (he was competing for 18 of these years) and his experience as a personal trainer, nutritionist and motivation coach. If you want to learn Tom Venuto’s secret and discover why his course has been a best seller for 6 years, click here for more details: Burn the Fat Feed The Muscle (by way, this is a 337 page fat burning training program).
14. The Diet Solution Program
The Diet Solution Program is a culmination of 15 years of Isabel De Los Rios’ personal research into what are the absolute best ways to achieve a healthy weight and feel great. She’s bringing her 15 years of trial and errors that include: following unhealthy dieting schemes, wasted money on worthless supplements and following some pretty extreme plans. Changing her eating habits have helped Isabel lose 30 lbs and clear up a life time of acne and increased energy. Isabel’s experience has also benefited her mother who was able to take better control of her diabetes AND lose 40 lbs!

12. Eat Stop Eat
Brad Pilon’s program is quite different from other weight loss/weight control programs on this list. Brad Pilon wrote Eat Stop Eat to help people understand the amazing weight loss results they can get by using a simple combination of flexible periods of intermittent fasting and weight training. Having done periods of fasting myself, I do know firsthand how fasting (with the supervision of a medical doctor) can help rid your body of trapped toxins that might be preventing you to achieve your ideal weight. Brad Pilon created Eat Stop Eat for people who are frustrated and overwhelmed by trying to follow the rules of “bodybuilder style nutrition”. This is not for everybody because of the way this eat program is structured. You’ll find more details on Brad Pilon’s program here: Eat Stop Eat
13. Did you know that women hate their legs, butts, hips and thighs?
It’s safe to say that if you were to ask any woman in any country on this planet which parts of her body she dislikes the most, I’m almost 100% certain that she’ll tell you that she doesn’t feel all that comfortable with their legs, butts, hips and thighs. The reason why so many women feel uncomfortable with that part of their body is because as you age if you don’t have a regular fitness program that you follow week in week out, your body will change and expend. Joey Atlas is a personal trainer who specializes in helping women target the part of their body they are most self conscience about: legs, butts, hips and thighs. He’s developed an entire course on trimming and firming the lower part of women’s body!
