Lower body weight lifting is just as important, if not more important than upper body.
It is important to get a sufficient amount of protein in your diet. 100-150g of protein a day on average is good for keeping strong muscles.
Losing two pounds a week of fat is healthy, but anymore and you could most likely be losing muscle.
Fats that should be eliminated completely from the body: trans fats, which have no nutritional value and are mostly found in calorie-dense baked goods and chips.
Light to moderate drinking protects against female midsection weight gain, compared with tea. A one 4-ounce glass of red or white wine most days a week is best.
It is easier to stay slim eating mono unsaturated fats (such as olive oil) and omega-3s (found mostly in fish but also in flaxseed and walnut oils and tofu).
Don’t start drinking wine just to fight ab fat, but if you enjoy a glass with dinner, it’s a great benefit.
Make lean choices such as low-fat yogurt, fat-free milk, fish, and poultry for your daily protein intake.
Aim to get 25% of your calories from protein (if you eat 2,000 calories a day, that’s 500 from protein).
Studies show that eating high amounts of protein may stress the kidneys as they work to eliminate the excess, which can also cause calcium loss.
