Weight Loss Efficiency - 10 ways to make the most out of your gym workout!

By: Greg Ryan | Jul 21, 2005 My name is Greg Ryan. I am a high profile fitness expert, champion bodybuilder and best selling author. However, I didn’t start out as one. I had to learn through class rooms and experience. There are no better teachers than exercising on the floors of all those health clubs I visited for so many years. I had no clue how to workout properly, how many reps, sets, minutes on a treadmill or foods to eat. But, I learned through trial and error. It amazes me how I have kept going consistently all these years coming from a non disciplined background. Here are ten things that have helped me lose...

The Psychology of Weight Loss: Part 2 - How are you motivated?

By: Greg Ryan | Jul 20, 2005 New Years Resolutions do not work because you are really not motivated when you think you are. On the surface you may be, but deep down you are not. That is why by April, that membership to the gym, those new clothes and that new found motivation has all but disappeared. When it comes to weight loss and sticking to an exercising program you are motivated from two emotions; fear and pleasure. You are also pushed from two directions; internally and outwardly. Out of the four choices there are two good ones and two bad ones. In other words, two that will help you stick to losing weight and two...

Weight Loss, Exercise and New Year's Resolutions - Why they don't work?

By: Greg Ryan | Jul 20, 2005 We have all set them, and we will revisit them again around January 1st. For some reason each year we feel it will be different this time around - only to forget the new gym membership, new clothes and new found inspiration about six weeks into the year. “Why do New Years Resolutions fail us year after year?” Or a better question, “Why do we fail them?” I believe it comes down to this; anytime you post pone the start of something, means it is not urgent or serious enough in your life. When something bad happens to you, what do you do? You move it, you make decisions, you don’t think about...

The Psychology of Weight Loss: Part 5 - Perspectives toward food!

By: Greg Ryan | Jul 20, 2005 Any dietary plan on the market has some portion of it that works, but the basic principle of any good eating program, no matter how sugarcoated, centers around calories IN— calories OUT. The eating “only one type of food diets” will not be effective, and such a restricted diet defeats you mentally. Most diets are just too unrealistic for a person’s lifestyle. Plus they don’t supply enough basic nutritional needs for people to stay with them. Balance is the key! Attitude is the key to keeping balance!! Here are what I call the 5 P’s of eating and the attitude one must take to keep food in...

The Psychology of Weight Loss: Part 4 - The Power of Praise!

By: Greg Ryan | Jul 20, 2005 Your success in sticking with an exercise and weight loss program may just come down to you asking for help - unless pride gets in your way. The key to longevity is surrounding yourself with people who will give you support followed up by accountability. “A good team is one that has quality support, honest encouragement, and requires personal responsibility.” From my e book The “A” Factor Your Inner Circle “You can tell a lot about a person by the friends they keep.” This is a very true statement. Let me say this first. Many decisions in life have strings attached to them. St...

The Psychology of Weight Loss: Part 1 - The INSIDE OUT Mindset

By: Greg Ryan | Jul 20, 2005 WHAT DOES BEING FIT REALLY MEAN? The “INSIDE-OUT” approach to fitness differs from that of conventional wisdom. Most programs work on diet and exercise alone. They give suggestions on what foods to eat through recipes, calorie-counting books, and exercise tips. While this way may work in the short run, eventually your motivation and desire to get in better shape disappears. In order to change your attitude and these unwanted behaviors, there are three things to learn about yourself: How and what motivates you? What are the reasons behind your unwanted behaviors? What kind of supp...

So when are you going to make a name for yourself?

By: Harry Fassett | Jul 3, 2002 QUESTION: What are you doing on a daily basis to stand out from the gazillions of online marketers competing for attention? Are you one of those marketers that is hiding behind affiliate sites, and "canned" classified ads? Well I can pretty much guess you're not making money online. Why should I buy from you when there are thousands "HAWKING" the same products, and services that you are? Plus running the same worn out "canned ads". Can you say, "Law of diminishing returns." I just roll my eyes when I see this kind of "me too" marketing which is so prevalent online. I...
