    Hi! Just joined this month or late last month. I have a question. I have bad knees, well… they work fine and bend, I just have pain while doing lunges. Does she have suggestions for that? Alternative moves, maybe not lunging as low. Thank you 🙂

    I’m 55 and for over 5 years I’ve been struggeling to lose body fat. I strength train M,W,F, and I do steady cardio T, thurs, Sat. Some days I kayak or cycle. I’m full of energy and vigor, healthy. I just keep getting bigger. Last Seca Body Scan I was up 4.5% muscle and lost 1.5 lbs – in the 3 months time. I started Weight Watchers again, as I tend to not eat enough. I recently starting cutting down on starchy carbs all together. Now they suggest less fruit – although I only have two servings a day. I way more than frustrated! I don’t want to get bigger still, but I don’t want to give up my lifting. Any ideas?

    Can you give some suggestions on exercise/diet to fight post-menopausal (age 57) belly fat? What is the most effective ways to burn belly fat: cardio? strength training? high protein? Thank you for any suggestions.

    I was recently diagnosed with a brain aneurysm. My doctors advised me to no longer do any weight training. I have been doing more intense yoga than I was before I was diagnosed. However my results are not the same as i had way more muscle when I was doing weight training and intervals. I am not sure about cardio as my doctors can’t agree and some advise against getting my heart rate too high. Any suggestions on what I can do with body weight only so I won’t lose my muscle I had? It has only been two months and I already notice a difference in my body. So bummed!!! I love yoga but it will take me some time to work up to any weight loss and toning from it since I am going back to basics to really focus on my form before I get into more intermediate yoga. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. I miss my weights!!! 🙁

    Hi Chris! I work out 7 days a week and eat healthy, but I cannot seem to kick the sugar habit. I mindlessly eat sugar after dinner, sometimes until I feel sick. Any tips on how to kick the habit?
