    The process is called exercise. When you exercise you burn fat and build muscle. You can target the area where you want to lose fat by exercising the underlying muscle.

    do a cardio routine mixed in with weight training. Weights will build muscle and the cardio will burn the fat. Throw in some fat burning exercise, like the treadmill but don’t get it up to cardio level. That should do the trick. Good luck!

    Your muscle is made up of protein. Protein is also used in burning fat. Type in the words Bulk & Muscle Formula in the site below and you will find what you are looking for.

    The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:

    *1) Burn more calories then you’re consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/weight/calsburned.htm

    Get a diet and fitness calculator that you can put on your computer or cell phone. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.

    Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:
    Adults: http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm
    Teens/Children: http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/exercise/weight/bmi.html

    It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.

    *2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.

    Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

    Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Here is an excellent food pyramid that anyone can follow: http://www.rayandterry.com/html/images/PyramidLRG.gif?osCsid=26a424be471d1337e7c2f105d5c64d9d

    *3) Exercise on most days by doing cardiovascular training and/or resistance training activities.

    Read a book or find a certified trainer to make sure your doing all resistance training exercises correctly. A great book to buy that teaches you the resistance training basics is “Weight Training for Dummies”. A superb magazine to buy with resistance training routines that will not get you bored is “Muscle and Fitness”. Signup for the free newsletter. An excellent free online resource is at http://www.exrx.net/

    A good book to buy that teaches you the cardiovascular training basics is “Fitness for Dummies”.

    *4) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health, and safety.

    *5) Educate yourself continually on health issues and make a life long commitment to good health. A great free publication is “Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005”. A superb book to read is “You The Owner’s Manual”. An excellent periodic publication is the “Nutrition Action Health Letter”. A reputable test you can take to measure your biological age is at http://realage.com

    Look at all areas where you can enhance your health. For example, make improvements in the quality of the air you breathe. Review outdoor air quality forecasts where you live and get an indoor air purifier. Send me an email or yahoo instant message to “gainbetterhealth” if you want an indoor air purifier recommendation and if you have any questions.

    Try a cleansing diet. I did and lost 10.5 pounds and 17 inches in only 9 days. I continued and lost 25 pounds in 5 weeks. I feel much better. Cleansing helps remove toxins from the chemicals, preservatives, food additives, pollution, medications, alcohol etc…these toxins get stored in your fat cells. to remove the fat, you must remove the toxins with cleansing. call for more info 1-877-587-4647. The program is not cheap but is worth every penny because it works so well

    the protein shakes help build lean muscle and the cleanse help remove fat
