hmb64's top tips

1.Eat 5-6 small 'meals' each day. Write out a simple schedule from 0700h on, eating about every three hours.
2.Feed your muscle, don't starve your fat. If you skip a meal, or eat too little, your body will hoard whatever you put into it.
3.Building muscle is the best way to increase your metabolism. Cardio will build your heart and lungs, but resistance training will build everything.
4.Get eight hours of sleep. Your body needs it, whether you think it does or not.
5.Step-down the simple carbs as the day progresses, and reduce carbs in general for your last meal.
6.Weekends are the worst - if you can make it to Monday morning without strying off track, consider yourself awesome.
