Default 5 things you could be doing to hinder fat loss

Thought I'd share this article on dieting mistakes. Sure, it's geared toward the more fitness-y crowd, but it highlights some of the common traps us ordinary folk fall into as well - and a few tips on correcting them.


My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.

interesting article, diet mistakes, in plain and simple language!
Never give up on a dream just because of the length of time it will take to achieve it. The time will pass anyway.
