Products we recommend for effective results

To lose weight is a process and to have an effective process you will need effective products that go along with your workout routine and daily food habits.

I recommend the following products for noticeable results:

1) Meal measure portion control tool

 2) Ab carver pro

 

Meal measure 1 portion control toolThe reason why you need these 2 products is because these are 2 great products to start your weight loss process with. They fit beginners as well as professionals. In other words they will be your two best friends along your weight loss journey!

 

 

 

So now let’s talk about the 1st product meal measure portion control tool:

Learning what a portion size actually is and consuming that amount is tricky. Why ? Because sometimes our appétit is affected by our eyes. Our eyes will see and say, “oh it’s not a big portion it’s just a small amount and I need to eat more to keep my energy level up”.  The challenge here is you will eat more than what your stomach actually needs. Instead of eating more portions of less nutritious food, try smaller portions of the nutritious one that your body really needs.

To summarize my point let me say it this way:  limit portions, lose weight.

Limiting portions can help you lose weight and ultimately prevent complications

A 2004 study of 329 overweight people found that 38% of those who practiced portion control for two years lost 5% or more of body weight, compared with 33% of participants who did not (they gained 5% or more of body weight).

People need to eat a minimum of three times a day, avoiding going longer than five hours without eating. Having a meal portion control tool will help you to eat the right portions so you can control what you eat even your snacks.

Did you know that 3 ounces of lean meat is equivalent to  a deck of cards? And 1 cup of breakfast cereal is about  the size of a fist?

Many of us don’t know what 3/4 ounce of pretzels looks like. It’s about 15 mini pretzels. That’s why control portion is a very important step in weight loss process.

So is there a difference between serving size and portion size? Yes. There is

To explain the difference lets say for example, a small bag of pretzels may say that it contains two servings, so if you’re eating the whole bag—your portion size—you’d have to double the calorie, fat, and carbohydrate information per serving to know how much you’re consuming.

Overall, 17% of those who used the meal measure portion control tool lost 5% or more of their body weight, while only 4.6% of the control group did.

2) Ab carver Pro

The Perfect Ab-Carver will carve your core and help you get ripped abs and sculpted arms. The kinetic “engine” uses a carbon steel spring to turbocharge your abdominal and arm workouts. It provides resistance as you roll out and assistance when you roll back. The ultra-wide tread provides maximum stability when carving left, right and center. Ergonomic hand grips are angled to help activate arm and core muscles.

Perfect Fitness Ab Carver ProBefore you begin using your ab carver, you will need to know 3 important rules to get the best results:

 

 

 

3 Rules of carving quality not quantity Proper form is critical for best results:

  • Keep eyes focused 1 ft. in front of the Perfect Ab-Carver
  • Keep elbows in
  • Keep the core tight – pull navel toward spine
  • Keep knees hip-width apart and tips of feet on the ground
  • Try both hand positions and use the one that feels most comfortable to you learn your limits
  • Carving is an intense exercise, especially the first time you try it.
  • Use a wall as a back stop to learn your limits.
  • Start 12 inches away from a wall and slowly roll toward the wall. It will act as a safety barrier should you not be able to control the movement in the beginning.
  • It is not unusual to feel sore after your first carving workout. This is a tough exercise and it will take time to build up your core. Take it slow
  • Carving is not about speed, it’s about slow and controlled muscle contractions
  • Pace yourself – try 5 seconds out and 5 seconds back
  • Moving slowly lets you focus on keeping proper form and getting results

 

How to Carve Straight?

Set up slowly lower yourself to floor in kneeling position and place hands on Left and Right handles. Each handle has a large L or R to indicate proper placement of the Left or Right hand. Ergonomic handles are designed to support thumbs in two different positions: on top (recommended for additional strength) or underneath. Place knees and feet hip-width apart with toes resting on the floor. Position perfect AbCarver directly under shoulders. MOVEMENT Slowly roll Ab-Carver away from you and keep eyes focused 1 foot in front of Ab-Carver. As you extend upper body, keep core tight by pulling navel toward spine. Remember to take it slow. Return to start position and use arms and abdominals to pull you back. TIP This is an intense abdominal exercise, if you are just starting out, make sure to learn your limits (see Rules of Carve-ing). Place Ab-Carver 12” away from wall and slowly roll toward the wall. It will act as a safety barrier should you not be able to control the movement in the beginning.

How to carve right or left?

Set up the movement as described above. To carve left or right, place more downward pressure on left or right hand and allow Ab-Carver to tilt to downward pressing hand. Done properly, only one rubber tread should have contact with floor. As you carve left and right, allow shoulders to tilt with Ab-Carver. This exercise will engage all four sets of abdominals with emphasis on your right and left sides. Remember to take it slow and learn your limits safely.
