Weight gain or loss is not only about diet. There are many other crucial factors involved. If this study you have mentioned puts forward one theory there are hundreds or thousands more which talk about the importance of exercise or how physical activity helps expend more energy. What’s importance ...

Your categorization is certainly different and very innovative. Classifying weight loss programs or activities into active and passive habits will surely help set priorities. I for one felt it very difficult to both follow a strict diet plan and do regular exercise. Categorizing my habits into activ...

I am a late breakfast eater too I usually have mine at 12pm, after sending my elder son to school and after taking care of my two year old. But I won’t advice the same to others.

From what I know and what I found on the internet, those looking to build muscles usually add milk. My personal preference is 2% skimmed milk or you can try Soy...

Mind over matter

Thank you for sharing these articles, both offer excellent advice and valuable information. As started in the first article losing weight is more of a lifestyle thing.
