Here’s an excuse for a wine-and-cheese hour: The schmancy Swiss cheese contains 30 percent more protein than an egg in one slice, plus one-third of your RDA of vitamin A. If you’re looking to indulge, keep your serving to the size of four dice, and moderate your vino to one glass for women, two glasses for men, to get the bad-cholesterol-lowering benefits of the antioxidant resveratrol. And better yet, stick to the #1 wine for rapid weight loss.

1. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT): This type of exercise is your key to melting belly fat fast. HIIT is highly effective for all over weight loss, particularly removing stubborn belly fat. If you are not eating right, you have reached menopause or you are not losing weight you should do these exercises. Don’t let the name scare you as it is you who determines the intensity. It is your perceived exertion that counts.
Your weight is a balancing act, and calories are part of that equation. Weight loss comes down to burning more calories than you take in. You can do by reducing extra calories from food and beverages, and increasing calories burned through physical activity.

“I tell all of my celebrity and professional-athlete clients to get between 6 and 8 hours of sleep per night. Everyone is overly focused on food, water and exercise, all of which are extremely imperative to weight loss and optimal health. However, without proper sleep, all of these the other factors are null and void. When you don’t get enough sleep, levels of the hormone leptin drop, which increases appetite. This surge in appetite makes comfort food more appealing, which can derail weight loss efforts.” — Jay Cardiello, celebrity fitness and nutrition expert
Thanks for the reply. Well my maintenance 1617 calories, and i ahve reduced my intake to 1500 cos i know if i go any lower my weight is going to drop and im borderline underweight and healthy weight. My carbs are 187g, protein 112g, and fat is 34g. I also forgot to mention that i do lift weights, mainly squating and deadlifting heavy plus skipping rope around 10 minutes on those days. I also do other workouts like back day and shoulders and a bit of arms. Does this sound better? If i do 20% below maintenance its around 1290 which is way too low for me i think. What are your thoughts?

While some scientific evidence for time-restricted eating focuses on 16-hour fasts, there is flexibility in adapting the approach to fit people’s lifestyles. Jonathan Stegall, an integrative medicine physician in Atlanta, has seen results in more than 40 of his patients on a 16-hour-fast diet following a monthlong preparation period emphasizing low-carb, organic, and natural foods. Cindy Santa Ana, 45, a mom of two and integrative nutrition health coach in Bristow, VA, lost 50 pounds in the past 2 years by eating only from 10:30 am to 7 pm. “I don’t watch my calories, but I eat healthfully—lots of veggies and lean protein and complex carbs like sweet potatoes and carrots,” she says.

Your body takes those excess calories, stores it as body fat and uses it as a backup source of energy when you create a calorie or energy deficit from exercising more and/or eating less (like in any normal weight loss plan) but…
You might have heard the term ‘middle-age spread’. This means, as women progress towards their middle years, the ratio of body fat increases compared to the body weight. During menopause, when the levels of estrogen go down, and the amount of androgens or male hormones increase, then there is an increased risk of fat accumulation in the waist. Hormones actually regulate the fat concentration in the body, and your figure depends entirely on it!
