Burn Fat By Eating?
When thinking about the next article I should write, I remembered how much foods that burned fat and boosted the metabolism intrigued me.  Finally, something that gives us a break with our diets.  For me these foods are great because I’m trying to put on muscle and for those trying to lose weight, they’re even more powerful!
Foods:
Broccoli is packed with Vitamin C, A, and calcium which helps absorb fat and keep the body running like a well oiled machine!
Milk/Low-Fat Yogurt foods rich in healthy dairy have the healthy calcium our bodies need.
Oatmeal the heart healthy carb has loads of fiber to keep you full and the complex carb induces more energy.
Jalapenos/Habanaros both of these hot treats contain capasaicin which boosts heart rate and the metabolism.  Also, spicier foods work to keep you feeling fuller longer.
Healthy Fats replace the bad fats in your diet with these fiber filled treats and see a huge improvement! 
Apples/Grapefruits while apples satisfy your sugar craving, grapefruits help insulin spikes and are rich in Vitamin C.
Green Tea containing ECGC which causes the brain and nervous system to run faster causing more fat burn!
Lean Meats…chicken, lamb, and pork oh my!  Lean proteins provide your body a substance to work hard and burn off while still being incredibly powerful with good vitamins, amino acids, and minerals. 
Caffeine  some people shy from it, but in moderate amounts its amazing..speeding up the heartbeat thus leading to more activity and fat burn.
These are just a few basic foods I thought most people would see in their normal diet regimen.

Bike Your Butt Off! Why cycling and spinning are great workouts

They’re finding that biking isn’t just a welcome break from mind-numbing elliptical sessions: It’s a surefire way to slim down and tone your tush.
Even a casual ride delivers a one-two punch of cardio and muscle strengthening. A 135-pound woman can blast nearly 500 calories in an hour of cycling at a comfortable clip. And each pedal stroke works your entire lower body and your core, sculpting a tight body. Hit the saddle!

“5 MOST COMMON BAD EATING HABITS”
1. EATING ON THE RUN:
If you live a busy life, there may not be enough time to prepare meals or sit down to eat. Eating in the car or going through a fast food drive-thru may be part of your eating habits. The challenge with eating on the run is that you don’t have a chance to pay close attention to what you’re eating.
Eating quickly makes it easier to eat more. When you eat quickly in the car or while on your way somewhere, your mind is on other things and not on how much you’re eating. If you’re eating fast food, you are also very likely consuming more fat and excessive calories without the necessary nutrition.
2. EATING LARGE PORTIONS:
As bad eating habits go, eating more food than the body needs is a common behavior. This can happen for a variety of reasons. If you’re distracted by the television, you might eat more. Some people eat more when they’re feeling lonely.
 To control portion sizes, think ahead about how much food will be enough. Serve yourself on a small plate or bowl and sit down at the table to eat. Avoid eating foods right out of the box or bag. It is easier, for example, to eat many more cookies when the box is sitting right in front of you as you watch television. Decide ahead of time how many cookies you will eat and put the box away before you sit down.
3. USING FOOD TO RELIEVE STRESS:
Many people use food to relieve stress. After a long and difficult day at work, eating many slices of pizza and drinking beer may be an attractive option. Using food in this way, however, leads to greater weight gain. When feeling stressed out, find ways to relax yourself that don’t involve food. Spending time in nature, talking with friends, meditating and exercising are a few options. 
4. SKIPPING MEALS:
Many doctors and nutritionists will tell you repeatedly to avoid skipping meals. When you don’t eat regularly, your hunger increases and you may also experience drops in blood sugar level. Many people compensate for this by eating larger meals later in the day or by excessive snacking. Be sure to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day.
5. LATE NIGHT EATING: 
Eating late at night is one of the bad eating habits that’s very common. Nighttime eating often consists of snacking and excessive calorie consumption. This may be due to boredom or being distracted by sedentary activities such as watching television or surfing the web. To avoid eating late at night, find interesting things to do that take away the boredom. Possible options may include a fun hobby, an interesting book, meditation, an exercise DVD or a conversation with a good friend.
