Six Pack Abs Are Only Possible When You Know These 3 Insider Tips

Six Pack Abs Are Only Possible When You Know These 3 Insider Tips

Submitted by: Nick Brighton

Getting 6 pack abs is like trying to win the lottery just so that you can "be rich". In other words, there's no point in wanting to be rich if you have no idea how to control your money, what to spend it on or how to live the lifestyle of the rich. So if you're looking for six pack abs, your motivation needs to be focused more on the simple fact that you "have six pack abs".

So basically, you need to realize that getting and keeping 6 pack abs and enduring those abdominal exercises should be based around reasons other than just "having them".

Once you understand this simple aspect alone, you are far more likely to not only stick to your abs training program, but you will find it easier to actually see results in a quicker time scale.

You must first identify why you really want a six pack. Is it to get more dates? Is it to avoid the dangerous risks of an overweight stomach (such as cancer)? Or is it to simply fill a void in your personal time and boost your self confidence?

Whatever you decide to be your motivation, you must clearly define the desired output from your six pack abdominal training. Most people assume that by simply having a six pack that they will automatically be happier...

...but taking the previous example of the rich, no-one is made happier by the money alone, because it's what you do with it and how it benefits your life that really matters.

The second thing to consider during your six pack abs training is how you document your progress. Because the truth is, the biggest reason why people give up with any kind of fitness training or general weight loss diets is because they simply do not see results quickly enough.

However, most people give up without realizing that results ARE taking place...the problem is, that they simply don't see it in themselves.

This can be avoided by literally documenting your progress. Use a record keeper or diary to do this. This will also benefit your future progress as you will be able to see what worked, how quickly you can expect to see realistic and achievable results and anything else you might have forgotten the next time round.

The last thing to do, which follows on from the previous point, is to document your progress with actual video or still pictures of your physique. This may sound far fetched for many people but here is why it is so important:

You don't see the small changes that make the big differences from day to day.

Just like you don't notice how old you are getting, how much weight you have put on or how tall you have grown (if you're lucky!), you will not easily see positive changes from the efforts of your abs training unless you visually document it. Just remember to add dates to each photograph or video to really drive home your progress.

These are just three small steps you can start doing today for free, but these three things are simply not enough to see dramatic and speedy abs on their own.

You need to have a well balanced, concentrated diet along with a proven []abs training program to see the best results in the quickest possible time.

Weight Loss Tips For Your Mind And Body


Lee Dobbins

Anyone who has been on a diet knows that losing weight is not only physical a physical process, it's also a mental process. It's not easy, and we know you can use all the help you can get so below are 10 weight loss tips for not only the physical aspects of losing weight but the psychological ones as well.

1. Get Some Exercise
Contrary to what you might think, you don't have to become a total exercise freak in order to make exercising effective. In fact, exercising has many other health benefits so even if you're not a burning a lot of calories you will be toning muscle and doing something healthy for yourself. When you start eating less calories, your body immediately goes into fat storing mode so adding in some new exercise is important because it can help to boost the burning power of your metabolism to counteract this.

2. Know Your Ideal Weight
This is a more psychological tip than physical and it can really have a big impact on losing weight. You want to be realistic about your ideal weight, don't go by what you're really skinny friend says should be your weight because it's an individual thing and it is affected by how tall you are as well your bone structure. If you set an unrealistic goal you will always be disappointed which will probably lead to over eating!

3. Take A Photo
Do you hate seeing how you look at a photo? Most overweight people do, but photos of yourself when you are fat can be really motivating. What's even better, is if you have a photo of yourself when you were thin you can put the two side by side and use them as motivation.

4. Plan For Success
One reason why a lot of people fail on a diet is they simply do not plan to have the right kinds of foods around. If you are restricting calories, or eating only certain food groups make sure you have plenty of these around so when you get hungry you do not reach for something that is not on your food plan. If you are counting calories, be sure that you have something with you to keep a running total at all times, otherwise you may find out at the end of the day that you've overdone it.

5. Learn To Read Labels
Reading food labels and knowing what you're eating is pretty important not only to make sure that you're eating things that are healthy for you but also to make sure that that low-carb granola bar really is low-carb. A lot of times food items are very loosely labeled and you need to read the list of ingredients as well as the calorie and vitamin specifications on the side to really know what you are getting.

6. Learn To Substitute
Chances are that no matter what kind of diet you are on there are going to be some foods that you love that you won't be able to eat. Luckily there are substitutions for almost everything and you just need to find the ones that work for you. For example, if you are chocoholic, you might consider substituting low-fat hot chocolate instead of a candy bar.

7. Be Firm With Friends
It might be a little awkward at first but you need to let all your family and friends know that you are trying to lose weight. Many a diet has been sabotaged by a well-meaning friend who insisted that just one piece of birthday cake won't kill you. Let them know you're trying to lose weight and ask them for their support.

8. Get Support
Sometimes joining a support group, either online or off-line can really help. A lot of people find that talking to people who are going to the same thing can keep them motivated.

9. Drink Water
How many times have you heard that weight loss tip? But it really is important besides being really good feel, water will can he help keep you feeling full. In fact, sometimes when you think you are hungry it is actually that you are dehydrated. Drinking water helps to balance the body and flush out toxins. If you add some slices of lemons and squeeze the juice into the water it gives little tank and the lemon helps to stave off hunger pranks.

10. Make Up Your Mind To Lose Weight
the most Important tip that I can give you is to actually make up your mind that you want to lose weight. Don't sabotage your diet by thinking negative thoughts right from the beginning. Even if you've been on many diets and failed, you can do it! So just get started - there's no time like the present!

These 10 weight loss tips will hopefully help you in your journey to lose weight but remember you want to do it in a healthy way and in a way that you can keep up for the rest of your life. Don't think of it as dieting, think of it as a new healthy life long way of eating!

WHO Links Sausage, Hot Dogs and other Processed Meats to Cancer




You may think twice about biting into that hot dog. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is the cancer agency of the World Health Organization (WHO), processed meats increase your risk of developing colorectal cancer.

The agency cautions that although the risk for development of colorectal cancer remains small, it increases for every amount of meat that is eaten. Dr. Kurt Straif, head of the IARC Monographs Programme says that in view of the fact that processed meat is popular around the world, "the global impact on cancer incidence is of public health importance."

The IARC defines processed meats as anything that "has been transformed through salting, curing, fermentation, smoking, or other processes to enhance flavour or improve preservation."

Some examples of processed meats include:

  • ham
  • sausages
  • hot dogs (frankfurters)
  • beef jerky or bitlong
  • corned beef
  • canned meat

Processed meats can also include poultry, blood, offal, other red meats and meat-by-products e.g. blood.

Processed meats are popular because of their convenience. They're relatively cheap and take little time to prepare, so it'd going to be difficult for people to pull back from eating so much of these potentially harmful foods. But over time, eating processed meats can have a very serious adverse effect on human health.

The WHO's cancer agency warns that each 50 grams of processed meat eaten per day increases colorectal cancer risk by 18%.

According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES), in 2003 - 2004, for a 24 hour dietary recall, 58% of meat consumed in the US came from red meat; poultry and red meat accounted for 22% of processed meat consumption.

Putting that statistic into perspective means that a lot of people are at risk for developing the deadly disease.

The IARC has classified processed meats as carcinogenic and red meats as possibly carcinogenic. The WHO has not classified red meats as carcinogenic because they have limited evidence that eating red meat causes cancer in humans. But using inference, the IARC says that it "has strong mechanistic evidence supporting a carcinogenic effect" for red meat.

The IARC says that red meats refer to anything containing mammalian muscle meat, e.g. veal, beef, pork, goat, lamb, mutton, and horse. 

Red meat has been linked to colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer and prostate cancer.

The National Cancer Institute has the following estimates for new cases and deaths from colorectal, pancreatic and prostate cancer in 2015:

  • colorectal cancer - Estimated New Cases 2015 - 132,700 Estimated Deaths 2015 - 49,700
  • pancreas cancer - Estimated New Cases 2015 - 48,960 Estimated Deaths 2015 - 40,560
  • prostate cancer - Estimated New Cases 2015 - 220,800 Estimated Deaths 2015 - 27,540

In light of the alarming number of cancer cases in 2015, and the popularity of processed meats and red meat, Americans may find themselves reconsidering the importance of these meat products in their regular diet.

Dr. Christopher Wild, Director of IARC says that people should cut back on eating processed meats but also says: “At the same time, red meat has nutritional value. Therefore, these results are important in enabling governments and international regulatory agencies to conduct risk assessments, in order to balance the risks and benefits of eating red meat and processed meat and to provide the best possible dietary recommendations."

Before making the classifications for processed meat and red meat, the IARC Working Group of 22 experts from 10 countries reviewed more than 800 studies that investigated links between a dozen different types of cancer and the consumption of red meat and processed meat in many countries and populations with diverse diets.


The Lord Jesus Christ was with the Father before the creation of anything, and nothing that was made could have been made without Him. Jesus Christ and the heavenly Father are one and the same. They are beyond our comprehension, yet when we hear about the workings and feelings of the Son we also know the workings and feelings of the Father. They want us to love them and each other. We should take the Father and the Son more seriously and strive to do what they say.

AdderRx Supplements for Mental Focus

Disclaimer: This article is sponsored. None of the claims in this sponsored article have been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration. The opinions expressed in this sponsored article are not the views of Living Fit, Healthy and Happy(SM) and should not be interpreted as medical advice or medical diagnosis of any disease.

Whether you are student that has trouble getting all of your study work done or an employee that seems to hit the afternoon lull each day and cannot get any productive work done, the inability to focus and concentrate at the levels you need to be at is going to have an impact on your life. It could be in the form of poor grades in school or poor reflection on your work performance. In any case, you want to be able to do all that you can to change this around and make improvements so that you have the energy you need to get through the day and to perform at a higher level. While there are prescription medications available to you to try, you may be better off looking into the natural brain supplements that you can find for sale over-the-counter.

Many Products Available

When you are looking at over-the- counter products you will find that these supplements are for sale at health stores, vitamin stores, drug stores, supermarkets and various online retailers, making them very easy for you to find. In fact, you will find that there are many products available in this particular field today and you may have a difficult time finding just the right one to use. The best approach you can take is to familiarize yourself with some of the top ingredients that are typically used in these products and what these ingredients can do for you. This will provide you with knowledge that you can use when you look closer at the different products available to see if the ingredients are included and if they are at levels where they can be highly effective. Once you are armed with this information you can then take a look at products like AdderRx at Smart Pill Guide and see how well it has performed for others.

What You Will Learn

When you take the time to look over AdderRx reviews, you will find that the product uses a proprietary formula of ingredients so that it can be difficult for you to determine just what compounds and nootropics are being used and to what levels. While this may be of a concern to you, as you read reviews given by other consumers you will find that a number of them speak highly of the product, answering the question does it work with a positive outcome. Users have seen a steady increase in their levels of focus and concentration and some report feeling effects just an hour or two after taking the supplement, making it ideal for you if you need it to help you quickly with studies or work. As for side effects, there are some to be noted, such as an increase in blood pressure, so you may need to check with your doctor first to make sure this product is safe for you.

While AdderRx has a proven level of effectiveness, the side effects concern may make taking this brain enhancing supplements impossible for you. For that reason, you may want to consider some of the other products reviewed so you can find one that is a good fit and offers the results you want to improve concentration and focus.

Powering Up With Circuit Routines

Powering Up With Circuit Routines

Submitted by: Sandra Prior

Usually, power circuits are performed between 75°/o and 85% of your one-rep max. A higher intensity than that places a greater demand on the nervous system, requiring more rest between sets and making the workout difficult to perform circuit-style. In comparison, typical endurance-type circuits are done with less than 50% of your one-rep max and would likely rely much more on machines with no free-weight moves built in.

Don't turn up the Volume too Much

Volume is the total amount of work done within an exercise session, calculated by adding the total number of repetitions for each exercise. For instance, six sets of five reps would be a volume of 30. For strength gains, the total volume of training for each exercise is normally 15 to 40 reps. If you did three sets of 10 reps on the leg curl, for instance, you'd have a volume of 30. Increasing the volume in a session does not mean more strength gain. The stimulus to increase strength is like the button on a lift: push it and it will come; pushing the button more doesn't make the lift come any faster. More volume in a training session will only increase the time it takes the muscles to recover.

Explode Up and Go Slow on the return for each Rep

Movement speed is critical to power development, particularly during the centric or positive part of the movement. While slow movements have their place in a training program, the attempt to be as explosive as possible during the concentric phase is key in this routine. This doesn't necessarily mean that the weight, particularly a heavy one, will move fast, but you should try to move it as fast as possible. In fact, researchers have shown that the attempt to move weights explosively, even when the actual movement speed is slow (due to the heavy weight), can improve power significantly. Meanwhile, the eccentric part of every rep should be completed in a slow and controlled fashion to eliminate momentum.

Think Time, Not Reps

For a strength circuit to be effective, you need to control fatigue. Either a depletion of ATP-CP, the immediate source of energy in the muscles, or an accumulation of lactic acid will cause fatigue during power-training circuits. If the fatigue is caused by depleting ATP-CP, that's fine, because this energy system can recover very quickly - 2 to 4 minutes for almost complete recovery, which is why we include a two-minute break between each full circuit. Yet the recovery time from high levels of lactic acid can be as long as two hours. High lactic acid levels make it difficult to work at the appropriate intensity, decreasing the effectiveness of the workout. To keep lactic acid build-up to a minimum, keep your time at each station in the circuit to 15 seconds (or less if you hit 30 reps total for that move).

Alternate the Upper and Lower Body Moves

The order of exercises in the circuit will also affect your fatigue levels. Alternate upper and lower-body exercises, as well as push and pull, to reduce fatigue as much as possible. For instance, if your circuit starts with a pulling exercise like pulldowns, then moves to a lower-body exercise like the leg press, your next upper-body exercise should be a pushing exercise like the bench press, while the next lower-body exercise could be a leg curl.

Main (rectus) Abdominals Strengthening With The Therapy Ball

Main (rectus) Abdominals Strengthening With The Therapy Ball

Submitted by: Dr. Alan Weidner

The objective of this exercise is to increase the tone and stability of the muscles that give you the famed "six pack". These muscles are actually called the main abdominals.

You get in position to do this exercise by sitting in a normal
folding style or kitchen style chair, without arm rests. Put your
exercise ball on your lap, without too much upward deflection of
the arms (they should be about horizontal).

In the sitting position, your knees need to be about 8 – 10 inches apart. Rest both of your arms over the ball, with your elbows extended or straightened and your hands clasped together. With your arms over the ball with hands together, you are ready to begin the exercise.

Step One: Take a deep breath.

Step Two: While slowly letting your breath go, squeeze the
ball between your knees and arms. Keep the arms and elbows locked. Be breathing out the entire time you are squeezing the ball with your arms and legs.

Step Three: Take a two or three breath rest.

Step Four: Repeat the process again.

Step Five: Repeat this whole exercise 5 – 8 times.

(For images of this exercise being done, please go to and visit the "Exercise Tips" section.)

This exercise, like all abdominal exercises, should be comfortable and painless for the low back. If you experience any shoulder pain, you can try bending your elbows to 90 degrees to take some of the strain from the shoulder joints.

This exercise should be preceded and followed by the Abdominal
Pre/Post exercise stretch, also on the exercise ball. You can also see this pre/post stretch exercise under the "Exercise Tips" section of Warming up the tissues that are to be stretched or strengthened is a very important part of therapy.

Warning: Therapeutic exercises should not significantly increase pain during the exercise. Increased pain or symptoms could be a sign of a more serious condition and you should consult your health care professional for guidance.

OptiMind Nootropic Supplement Review

Disclaimer: This article is sponsored. None of the claims in this sponsored article have been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration. The opinions expressed in this sponsored aricle are not the views of Living Fit, Healthy and Happy(SM) and should not be interpreted as medical advice or medical diagnosis of any disease.


OptiMind Nootropic Supplement Review

There can be all kinds if reasons as to why you have trouble concentrating or have issues with your focus and recall. For some people it is just a factor of getting older. Others may experience this because of medication that they take or medical conditions they may have. For some it may have to do with their particular diet. Whatever the reasons may be for the trouble you will want to do all that you can to rectify the problem so it does not worsen. There are a number of products that are available to you that can provide you with just the boost you need so that you can focus and concentrate better, have a greater memory and maintain better levels of energy throughout the day. These supplements, referred to as nootropics, have become quite popular in recent years. You can find the best products when you take the time to read an OptiMind review and other reviews like it on the web.

Why Reading Reviews Helps

There are so many products on the market right now that promise to help you with brain enhancement that it can be difficult for you to choose just one to take. Simply opting for the first one that comes along in any Internet search is not necessarily the best way for you to go. There is no guarantee that the product is the best or most effective option for you and you could end up wasting your money on a product that offers little in the way of results. Reading the reviews that are provided can be the best way for you to go because you can then see just how other customers and users have used the product, how successful it has been and what the effectiveness of the product has been so you do not have to question does it work well or not. You can learn a great deal about OptiMind this way when you look at reviews provided by Brain Enhancement Advisor.

What the Pills Can Do

For this particular product the reviews have been good because the product makes use of safe and effective ingredients. This supplement uses well-known nootropics such as choline, tyrosine, vinpocetine and a variety of effective vitamins and minerals that are known to provide improvement to nerve function and communication to the brain cells. All of this works together to help you improve your memory and ability to concentrate more with greater awareness, allowing you to perform at a more effective level at all of your tasks. There have not been any notable side effects that you would need to be concerned with, making this product a good choice.

While choosing to take OptiMind could certainly be an excellent choice for you, you may also want to take the time to look at some of the other reviews of other products being sold that are similar. The comparisons can allow you to be sure that you choose the best supplement to give you the positive results you are looking for.

Tired of Brain Fog? Eating Well For a Clear Head and a Healthy Body


Lynda Enright

Do you find it becoming more and more difficult to concentrate? Do you find yourself struggling to remember simple things throughout your day? Brain fog may be your problem.

The continual decrease in the quality of the American diet is not only increasing our risk for disease, it is having a significant impact on the health of our brain. The good news is there are simple changes to your diet that can help you think more clearly.

A study completed at UCLA and published in the Journal of Physiology found that eating a diet rich in high fructose corn syrup over the long term impaired the brain's ability to learn and remember. And in contrast a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids helped to minimize the damage.

In the study 2 groups of animals were fed a high fructose solution daily and the second group was also supplemented with omega-3 fatty acids. They found that the animals were much faster navigating a maze when fed a diet including omega-3 fatty acids than those deprived of those nutrients. The brains of those low in dietary omega-3 fats were slower and their brain cells had difficulty signaling each other. This disrupted the animal's ability to think clearly and recall the maze they had learned 6 weeks earlier.

High fructose corn syrup is found in processed foods, soft drinks, condiments and many other products. According to the USDA, it is estimated that today the average American consumes more than 40 lbs. of high fructose corn syrup each year. Fructose occurs naturally in fruits, but also contains water and beneficial antioxidants important for brain health.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential in the diet (the body cannot produce them so you must consume them). Sources of omega-3 fats include fish, nuts, flaxseed and meat from grass fed animals. The average American diet is deficient in this important nutrient.

So, what can you do to shift your diet to one lower in high fructose corn syrup and higher in omega 3 fats? Try these tips below:

1. Eliminate soda - switch to water or herbal tea.

2. Cereals - look for those with <5g/sugar.

3. Reduce intake of "sweet treats".

4. Read labels - check the ingredient list and choose options without high fructose corn syrup in foods like - breads, desserts, kid's cereal, yogurt, spaghetti sauce, ketchup or other condiments.

5. Snack on nuts and seeds in moderation (1 oz. = 1 serving).

6. Choose fatty fish 2 times/week - wild caught salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines, herring.

7. Choose grass fed beef.

8. Choose omega-3 rich eggs.

9. Sprinkle ground flaxseed on yogurt, cereal or hot dishes.

10. Eat real food! If you don't recognize the ingredients, put it back on the shelf.

In addition, be cautious of what you see on the store shelves. Many products today claim to contain added Omega-3 fats though their quantities may be well below your needs. Stick to real foods that are not processed and you will be off to a good start.

Added Bonus! What I love about a healthy diet is the benefits of good foods can impact so many areas of your body and achieving good health. Not only will reduction of high fructose corn syrup and an increase in omega-3 fatty acids prevent brain fog this can also help you to lose weight, reduce fatigue and decrease inflammation throughout the body. Simple changes for great health!

If you are ready to prepare a healthy dinner rich in omega-3's try the recipe below:
