Happy Thursday, everyone. My name is Steve. As part of the quality assurance team here, some of you have talked to me on the phone when you have had questions about our products. Others know me for my long, rambling and occasionally nonsensical health tips and articles. Sorry for boring you with wordiness, by the way. What you probably don’t know is that I’m also a veteran. Which is why I decided to make this week’s article about the differences between Veterans Day, on November 11th, and Memorial Day, coming up on the last Monday of May. And yes, they are most definitely different. Memorial day commemorates those who have given their lives in service to their country and is a day of remembrance. Veterans Day is the day we honor our troops, and as a veteran, I’d like to add that it’s a great day to buy a vet a beer. Or you could just say thanks. We’re not that picky.
And while there’s no comparable stat on grown-ups and weight gain, barbecues, state fairs, and waterside food vendors offer plenty of temptation. Here are the summer foods you should always avoid, and healthier options you can feel free to enjoy.
The truth is, the weight didn’t come on overnight, so it is going to take you longer to see the results you want to see than you think it will. The good news is that by eating healthy and exercising, you can maximize fat loss and produce the results you want to get your best body ever.
Measuring & Tracking your Results
The scale is not the only way to measure your training results. In fact, the scale is likely one of the worst ways to measure your results. If you are weighing yourself everyday to see if you lost a pound, you are only fooling yourself. Water retention can cause your body weight to fluctuate by 2-3 pounds daily!
