(On a quick salad bar, we're well aware last week's Minute took ~76 seconds to read. Our eyes were bigger than our inbox. The takeaway lesson is don't go to the grocery store hungry.)
The absolute #1 complicating factor to 100% of all disease known to Gray's Anatomy is smoking.
In a distant and out of breath second place, is excess body weight.
And now for some simple math:
Caloric burn > Caloric intake = Weight loss
8 Minute Abs (or 7), P90Insanity, BeachBody, SweatBelt, Instafitness, and every other avenue used to apply this simple math model to the runway model are enough to make a person choke.
The first step towards weight loss: Committing to losing weight. This is differentiated from thinking losing weight is a good idea as lack of commitment keeps us from doing crossword puzzles nonetheless dropping pounds.
The second step: Find out how many calories your body needs to not die, and eat ~20% less than that (see above equation).
We'd include the formula but we're already pushing 41 seconds and what better way to test your commitment to step one than having you take the first step.
Losing weight is not easy. Just ask 66% of American adults. We can help.
