One thing I want to stress to you all is that once you have your Exercise regimen down and are getting close if not right at your target weight ( for a period of a year or so ) you can go pretty much into ‘Maintenance Mode’.
What I mean by this is that you do not have to have a strict consumption of food like you did before. You need to eat healthy and at least 5 times a day. But those splurge meals can be a little more often during the week. I would not make it more than twice a week cheat meals though. And with no more than 1,500 calories per cheat meal.
And on top of this in ‘Maintenance Mode’ you do not have to exercise at a mind boggling pace like once before.
Personally, I have been in ‘Maintenance Mode’ for quite some time now. It is a great situation to be in. Your Brain works pretty much in a subconscious way as it has been trained to stay at a general body weight and at a general peak of good health !! Its like your Mind is working in complete harmony with your body.
This is where my “Pace Routine” has be beneficial to many. You hit a target weight and stay there for awhile. After this you then continue a particular exercise regimen like Rowing or Running and you continue this for many years to come at a MANAGEABLE Rate. For example if two days a week of Running is manageable for a couple of decades and does not waver you away from you target weight then go for it !! Life is not a sprint but a Marathon. You cannot continue breakdown exercises like they do on the Biggest Loser and not burn out or suffer some kind if injury. Slow but steady/……..just keep that in mine.
Right now Iam below my target weight by about 5 lbs. so last night I stocked up on two servings of Lasagna and Italian toast. I definitely do not recommend this to everyone. But my stubborn Mother in Law insisted when I told of her of my Situation !!
But strangely enough it works for me here at this period in my Life !!
Anyway, just remember the journey is actually the most fulfilling and satisfying thing there is. So shoot for that ‘Maintenance Mode’ and do not stop until you get it !! And you will be fine and reap the rewards of hard work once you do get there!
Peace Out and have a good one,

Howdy Guys and Gals,
Well, if you think trying to skip a meal here and there is going to help you lose weight… then think again. Actually when you deprive yourself of food you will end up gaining more body fat eventually.
When you deprive yourself of food you begin to mess with your Metabolism and certain hormones that regulate body activity. When things like Insulin level, Cortisol, Leptin, and Estrogen spike up and down (particularly Insulin) it will throw your body out of whack. This is what happens when you try to starve your body from eating
In this process, your body goes into a deprivation mode and anything that is eaten is stored as fat for energy because the body does not know when it will be fed up again. So losing weight is nearly impossible !!
So stick o a regular eating regimen. One with servings of Protein, Fruit, vegetables, whole Grain, some dairy products and any and most kind of nuts.
(And a reminder at the end of this Post I will put a section noting my new Christmas Gifts Blog that will have great Christmas Gift Ideas for Men and Christmas Gifts for Women. And it will eventually have some great routines and food products for losing weight)
With all this being said my wife has a Colonoscopy on Monday so essentially she has to fast all day tomorrow. So I am going to join her in the Fast to support her. This alright if you dont make it a regular thing. Once a month Fasting is actually healthy to clean out your systems. Many people do it as part of a regular eating regimen.
But skipping meals here and there to try to lose weight will get you nowhere but headed towards excess weight and body fat !!
