There are a lot of contradictions in the fitness and health industries. Some people say eat less meat, some say eat more. Some people say fat is bad, some say it's good. I think part of the reason it's so confusing is because there's not one way of living healthy that works for everyone. However, there are some behaviors that everyone can benefit from, no matter your lifestyle. Here are five tips for losing weight they healthy way:
Setting fitness goals can be extremely challenging and frustrating—especially if you're new to the fitness scene. We tend to be weary of even setting fitness goals, in fear of the disappointment or guilt that comes when we fail. But think about it like this: when we get lost, we use maps to find our destination.

Congratulations on completing Week 1 of summer bootcamp! How did you do? You might be a little (or a lot) sore, but worry not.

And it won't cancel out all the hard work you did at the gym.
Summer's here and you know what that means... like a caterpillar emerging from its cozy cocoon, it's time to shed the hoodies and parkas and replace them with tank tops and swimsuits! Don't be one out of three Americans who are shy about their bods this year, so spread your beautiful wings and make it a fit summer!
