I’ve been looking into Lyle McDonald books, since it seems the guy is a really knowledgable about burning body fat and coming up with some great protocol to burn body fat fast. I came across this guy thanks to my friend who tried Lyle’s protocol and she got awesome results.
Anyway, I found a couple of videos on YouTube that I feel are pretty interesting and provide really good information. Read more
Since every once in a while I get new friends asking me for help and advices as to how to use MFP to lose weight or calculate calories and macros (macronutrients), etc., I decided to write the last message I sent, in a way I could use it for a blog post. One thing I really want to let you guys know, fitness is not easy, and by that I mean, don’t expect to learn all there is about fitness in a 5 words sentence. What I mean with this is, as much as I like to help everyone who needs it, there’s no way I can summarize it all in one sentence, therefore this post will be VERY LONG, but I will try my best to keep it somehow interesting and save you from having to visit another 100 websites/pages by giving you possible scenarios and possibilities, so you can choose what works best for you. All this information will come from my own research and paid programs, so I do hope you appreciate all the info I’m providing here. Read more
Here I am, two weeks into the program and about to start my third week of STS (or S2S like some like to call it). So, what has been different about this second week? Not much really, other than reps per set and of course decreasing my carbohydrates. While the first 3 days of training the reps range decreased, allowing me to go heavier on each exercise, during the remaining 3 days of the week the reps increased, which of course, had me using less weight to meet the reps goals. One of my concerns was how my body would react to eating 93.6 g of carbs less a day, but my body reacted nice to it, not making feel with less energy. Read more
When it comes about free nutrition tools to help us keep track of our calorie and macronutrients intake, MyFitnessPal (MFP) is probably one of the most popular apps available today. A dear friend introduced me to it years ago calling it the “Facebook For Fatties”, which I thought it was brilliant. Being into fitness, and having the opportunity to use a free tool to track my calories and meet new people with the same interest, I didn’t even think twice about it and opened an account. Read more
Calories (noun) – Tiny creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a little bit tighter every night.
There are probably more articles about calories and macronutrients than there are about any other trending topic online. I am sure the amount of information can be overwhelming and at times confusing, especially when most articles seem to contradict each other and everyone claim to be right while the rest are wrong.

As mentioned before on my Jim Stoppani’s Six-Week Shortcut to Shred post, I created an account with MyFitnessPal (username: yass4fitness) with an open/public food diary so people following my progress or wanting to get ideas what my meal plan looks like during this program can look at it. Since the diary is open you have the option of adding me or just save the link to your favorites so you can access it at any time. Click here to see the diary. Read more
