Quiz the Coach :: How Do I Lose Weight?

Hey Coach,

How do I lose weight?


Losing weight is probably the trickiest trick in the book. It is so tricky because all of us are so different so no answer is 100% guaranteed. Some people can eat whatever they want and gain absolutely no weight. Other people aren’t so lucky. But you have to understand the expression “you are what you eat” because that is simply the truth.

30 Minute Mayhem

So, now after you figure out what you’re eating and you still need to lose weight, your answer to take off those love handles is simple… EXERCISE! You will be surprised how fit you will look with just 30 minutes of exercise everyday.

No Pain No Gain

Good SweatGood Sweat

Some people disagree that only 30 minutes of exercise won’t help you lose weight. That’s because they aren’t exercising hard enough to lose weight. You can’t expect to lose weight if you are strolling along the track without breaking a sweat.

Tip Top Tone

Hard WorkHard Work

Exercise is supposed to be uncomfortable… especially if you are out of shape. You got to work hard for those 30 minutes and break a sweat. The good news is that the more you do it, the easier it gets, and that means you will be losing fat and gaining muscle and tone.

Dieting Dilemma

Health FoodHealth Food

There are lots of diets out there that will also help you lose weight. The problem with those diets is that the food is not fun to eat and as soon as you stop, you will put the weight back on immediately. The good thing about exercise is that the more you do it, the more you will want to keep doing it. A lot of people find a passion in sports, going to the gym, doing yoga, and having fun working hard at something to get better.

Communication Breakdown

Obesity is one of the biggest problems in youth today, and it’s good to know that children are interested in losing weight. However, losing weight can be very dangerous and some methods can lead to serious problems physically and mentally. Make sure that you talk about these things with your parents or a teacher that can help make sure you stay healthy.

How Often Does Your Family Exercise?

  • All the time - we're a totally fit family.
  • We exercise at least once a week - but we could do more.
  • Not every often - maybe once a month.
  • Never. We're a family of couch potatoes.

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
