  1. To be honest, I have a glorious metabolism and it seems that my bad eating choices have very little effect on what I look like. That being said, I have noticed a difference in what I feel like and that it something I think matters more anyway. I really appreciate your detailed information on what constitutes a healthy diet.

    Thanks for the guide on how to eat healthier so that I can get in shape. I didn’t realize that changing the way I eat is just as important as what I eat. I realize that I tend to snack when I’m bored or doing homework, so keeping a food log might help me control that urge. I think that joining a nutrition wellness plan will also help me decide what types of food to avoid.

    Some people recommend moving a body part during the day, like tapping or moving your leg while sitting to help burn calories. Does this really work?

    • Hi Prateek – Yes, fidgeting will burn some extra calories during the day (tapping your feet, moving your legs, wiggling in your chair). According to an Iowa State University study, researchers found that those who frequently fidgeted, stood up, and walked around could burn an additional 300 calories per day.

        Thanks a lot for helping out with my queries. The fitness calculator too is very good to take up a clear path to lose weight and build muscles but I still have a problem. I’m a student aged 17 and weigh about 73 kgs. All of the physical exercises I do include cycling to my academy which is about 5 kms but it’s uphill one way. I also do normal push ups, chin ups and sometimes a little weight lifting with heavy wooden furniture around my place. The fitness calculator says, to lose weight I must burn about 500 calories a day. I’ve already started to cut down my calorie intake but due to the lack of time I’m not sure whether I would reach the mark or not. Please provide some exercises that I could do and diet tips so that I can rid of my belly fat and build muscle.

        • Hi Prateek – You can review our large database of Exercise Guides and choose from over 500 exercises that cover each body part. You can also review our Nutrition 101 article to help you choose the best foods to lose weight. If you still need more help, please signup for our free Fitness Forum and other members should be able to help you.

  4. I am really enjoying reading the info shared on this website! My goal to lose 80 pounds and regain being healthy seems more “doable”. I was also hoping to get the e-book offered with sign-up but not sure how to obtain it. Thank you so very much for helping us improve life. Healthy and happy is always wonderful!
