Mr. Peanut may skip arms and legs day at the gym, but he rocks a monocle like a boss.

Short, all-out sprints with brief periods of rest is the most effective form of cardio for fat loss, Try a 2-to-1 “work-to-rest” ratio (sprint 2x longer than you rest) Perform sprint intervals for a designated distance (land) or designated time (treadmill.)

Avoid Emotional Eating
The desire to snack can come from loneliness, depression, or anxiety. Usually you will go for comfort foods…which typically are sugary, salty or fatty. Try blowing off steam in a more productive manner.

If you have to buy cookies, chips, or other processed junk foods, buy the single-serving package over the zoo feedbag sized family-style bag.
Take a digital photo of your current self. Focus on the fact that you are looking at the OLD YOU. Note: Avoid posting these on Facebook or leaving the pics on an unsecured mobile. (and make sure you didn’t photo fail yourself!)
Know your portion sizes
