Health, Fitness & Weight Loss Articles

   Eating right, moving around and looking after yourself are things that people have forgotten for a long time - we all seem to be short on time, trying to get too much done to really think about looking after ourselves, and that has led to a boom in the convenience market. And most of the time, you have to sacrifice a lot for convenience. Fortunately, people are beginning to catch on. A lot of people spend a few hours on a weekend doing meal prep for the week ahead, ensuring appropriate meals with good nutrition even when they have no time to cook from scratch. Others are learning that you don't need to go to a gym to work out, you can do so very easily, and effectively, at home. And then there are the fitness gurus promoting high-intensity workouts that can be done in 20 minutes with maximum gain, and healthy food companies creating truly healthy ready meals and snacks so we can keep properly fuelled on the go.
   But there is a lot that the average person doesn't understand about all these angles, and if you're trying to lose weight, tone up or get fit, you'll sabotage yourself if you don't take the time to get informed. After all, why put yourself through all that hard work if you're going to undo it all by eating the wrong thing - or perhaps even eating too little - or by not getting enough rest. See? It's not as simple as 'eat less, move more'. I know first hand, because I developed an eating disorder and exercise addiction because I became so obsessive.
   So here are a whole bunch of health and fitness articles, as well as detailed advice on how to lose weight safely and efficiently, and how to keep it off. I even have a few guest posts from qualified professionals.
