I have lost weight everywhere but I can't seem to get my midsection reduced. Any suggestions?

Gilad: It always seems that the area you want to lose weight from the most is the area you lose the weight from last.

This is very common problem for many people although the problem area varies from person to person.

Some hold the extra weight in the abdominals, a common problem for men, while woman tend to hold extra weight in the hips and thighs. Regardless of your specific problem area the solution is simple: PERSISTENCE! Look at what you have accomplished already as your motivation and let it lead you into conquering that last stubborn area.

You can also spend a little extra time on specific exercises to target your problem area.

In the case of the abdominals I recommend my "Lord Of The Abs" DVD series. This is a "Core Cross Training Program" that will get your entire body in shape while focusing on the core.

I am a firm believer that if you stick to your fitness program and eat healthy that you will be able to accomplish your goals and even get rid of that last bit of stubborn fat.

 

 

I have reached a plateau in my training/weight loss, what should I do?

Gilad: The word "plateau" in my opinion is often over-used. It is typically a condition that describes professional athletes who have been over-exerting their bodies on a regular basis and are in need of more rest. Many times it will happen after months of intense competition.

In the case of us "regular folks" we tend to use that term when, for some reason, our weight loss has stopped for a period of time or when we feel like we are not improving in our fitness program.

Remember, when you are on a weight loss program and are working out, you are losing body fat and gaining muscle at the same time.  Often the scale will not show weight loss because of the simple fact that - the muscle you gained weighs more than the fat you lost! - Also keep in mind that muscle takes up less space than fat in the body because muscle is denser.  That is why often you will see inches lost but not weight loss...

I would simply stick with the program understanding that the body needs time to adjust to the new regimen.  If you are eating healthy balanced meals and adjusting your fitness program as you are becoming more fit, you will keep improving!
