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/
