Top 5 Reasons Why You’re Not Losing Weight

For me the key to weight loss is ‘keep it simple’ and these 5 tips are ‘tick boxes’ to keep you on track. BUT you cannot simply read this article and go ‘yep I do that’. It is not just about doing each tip, it is about doing them well and striving to do them better.

It is good to get an outside perspective to hold us accountable and sometimes all the advice you need is ‘do MORE of what you are doing and give yourself MORE time’.

    Whatever fitness or weight loss goals you are setting, you have to work regularly to gain results. It requires great deal of self-discipline and commitment. In order to enhance my strength and gain the most benefits from my workouts I am taking additional nutrition. I have tried a lot of different workout supplements over the years and nothing has given me as much energy and focus as Military Grade Nutritionals have. In my opinion, their pre-workouts are the most effective supplements.
