The average American will consume more than 4,500 calories and 229 grams of fat on Thanksgiving Day alone, according to the Calorie Control Council. Add that to the fact that studies show the average person gains an average of 10 pounds during the holiday season, and well, maybe we better think and plan just what we’ll be eating this year.

005SHM I know Squat about Squats

I am way too impatient. I know. I know. I want results and I want them now. Major results. Big results.

I knowSQUATaboutSquats!

Slow and Steady always smacks of Loser to me.

I know. I know. I’m wrong. I hear you all yelling at me.

But there’s no hiding the fact that I am a bit disappointed this week with the weight loss results. I lost. Just not enough to write home about.

But it was still a good week. Especially with my new exercise prescription which, you can guess from the title of this episode and the photo of me in action, has to do with squats.

Healthy weight loss is 2 pounds or less per week. Never, ever anymore. Those “plans” that promote more than that are scams and shams.

People may be eating right, exercising right and following a healthy living pattern but if they miss this crucial element, the pound will keep piling on.

Do the math to lose weight

One pound of fat equals 3,500 calories. Therefore, if you want to lose one pound a week, take in 3,500 calories less every week. Want to lose two pounds? Take in 7,000 less calories. By the way: Two pounds of weight loss a week is the most you should ever do over the long haul. That’s because rapid weight loss has been known to cause kidney stones. If you ever had one, you know how excruciating that can be. So while in the early weeks you ay lose more, try for a healthy loss of one to one-and-a-half pounds-a-week.
