2 Main Reasons You’re Not Seeing Results From Your Workouts
Are you working out regularly and not seeing the results you want? Do you want to change your body, and just can’t seem to get there? There are 2 main reasons why so many of us workout day in and day out and never see the results we desire.
1. Doing too much cardio, and not enough resistance training
2. Thinking you can ‘work off’ what you eat. (For the best workout smoothie recipe click here)
Now I KNOW most of you think I am crazy when I say you are doing too much cardio. But hear me out. An hour plus cardio a day several days a week is too much cardio. Too much of it depletes muscle mass, and muscle BURNS fat, even while you are at rest. So the more muscle you have, the more you burn – even while you sleep! Also, if you can work out for more than an hour – you are NOT working out hard enough. (Now if you are training for a marathon, or a contest, or taking a 90 minute yoga class because you like it, this is different).

Again, I KNOW a lot of you women are saying –I do cardio because I do not want to bulk up. It is a MYTH that women can bulk up. When you put on muscle, you do not put muscle on like a man. Strength training does not equate with body building. It can be anywhere from training with weights, bands, your own body weight and/or kettlebells….
Next – EXERCISE IS NOT AN EXCUSE TO EAT. A fitness class might burn off 1.5 slices of pizza that you ate in 1.5 minutes. Don’t kid yourself. The attitude – I will just work it off in the gym later – will get you into trouble every time.Sure, perhaps your body now needs more calories with a more vigorous workout, so eat more of the right stuff. Most major health organizations throughout the world recommend that you should eat 5-6 servings each of fruits and vegetables every day. Each time you go to eat or grab a snack – think of how many servings you have had of your fruits and veggies. Then eat those instead. It is actually not that easy to eat that many fruits and veggies in a day. Only about 10% of the population actually gets the required amount. Most people do not even come close….
