Good Riddance to the Love Handles!

We have entered the 2nd month of 2009 and that means a couple of things. First, it means that if you are still adhering to your New Years Resolution to eat better and work out you are doing great! Experts say it only takes 28 days to form a habit-so you are well on your way to a great foundation for healthy eating and exercising!

I came across this great fitness blog on and I couldn't help but start reading the posts by one contributor, more specifically, Stew Smith. He is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, a former Navy SEAL, and author of several fitness and self defense books such as The Complete Guide to Navy SEAL Fitness, and Maximum Fitness. As a military fitness trainer, Stew has trained hundreds of students for Navy SEAL, Special Forces, Air Force PJ, Ranger Training, and other physical law enforcement professions. Who better to take fitness advice from than him!

In a post entitled Lose the Love Handles, he outlines ways to get rid of the little something extra around the middle!

Here are the three areas of concentration:

1) Healthy Diet (to build energy and burn fat);

2) Cardio-vascular and resistance training (to burn fat and build muscle), and;

3) Targeted Abdominal exercises (to help firm the muscles under the fatty area)

Check out the rest of Stew's post to get detailed info on the workout to achieve the results you are looking for, not to mention a great breakdown of lean meal options to help with the healthy diet! He uses tons of egg whites for protein, so there are ample opportunities to benefit from the ONLY choice for liquid egg whites, Eggology!

Thanks Stew for the wonderful work out suggestions and we look forward to reading many more!
