Q and A

For today’s post I decided to do a question and answer session.  I get asked a lot of questions and most of them are the same question just asked differently.  So, here are the top 3 questions I get asked the most and my answers.


1.  Can I spot reduce (I just want to lose weight in my legs or I want a smaller stomach)?

Answer: No.  You can’t spot reduce.  In order to have smaller legs or a stomach, you need to lose fat overall.  If you eat healthy and lift weights you will get your results.


2.  Why is my weight-loss program not working?

Answer:  There are a ton of reasons why a weight-loss program isn’t working for someone.  A few reasons: you aren’t eating enough calories, you aren’t eating the right kind of food, you aren’t lifting weights(this one is very true for females).  If you are on a weight-loss plan and not losing weight then track everything you put in your mouth for 1 week.  Most of the time we underestimate how many calories we are really eating and overestimate how much we are exercising.


3.  I do cardio 7 days a week and I don’t see any changes.  How can that be?

Answer: I wrote a blog post about this a while ago, check it out here for the answer http://fitnesswithlisa.areavoices.com/2013/06/20/cardio-will-make-you-fat/
