Study: Lifting weights attacks belly fat

ASSOCIATED PRESS DALLAS -- By just lifting weights twice a week for an hour, women can battle the buildup of tummy fat that often takes hold with aging, a new study suggests. And they didn't even diet.

The study focused on intra-abdominal fat, the deep fat that wraps itself around organs and is the most unhealthy because it's linked with heart disease...more

Starting my BFL business. What should I include? I'm not just talking here. I have a retail location, ~700 square feet waiting, a marketing company I'm working with, multiple trainers waiting to train, and a nutritionalist waiting to help.

Yet I have no program.

Here's my thought. You can get a diet and workout program anywhere. I'm going to take people through what I went through. I'm going go to the grocery store with them, and show them exactly WHY you buy what you buy. Then, I'm going to buy them not just the fruit, but the fruit basket to go in front of their "snack spot" in the house. I'm going as far as buying them a crock pot for hot oatmeal in the morning. What else?

I want to give people all the little things they need to succeed.

Of course, I'll have supplements and the shaker cups to go along with them. The BFL book, and probably audio book. A custom journal, etc. etc. I do have someone who can cook all their meals for them.

Should I take it that far? What would you want?

What were some of the things you bought or learned, or struggled with, or WHATEVER. I am going to be the teacher/coach. I'm doing the educational side, and having trainers and a nutritionalist do the rest. I'm going to teach a weekly class, and give them every article/book I've read. Hey, 30 minutes of cardio 3 times a week times 12 weeks is 18 hours of audiobook time.

MY audiobook???? Hmmmmm...

If you could walk into a business, and 12 weeks later walk out a new person, what would you require? What would it be worth to you to walked through a plan where you could not fail?

Transformation: How to Change EVERYTHING: Books: Bill Phillips

I'm soooo envious of this title. It captures EXACTLY how I feel. I had a transformation, more than simply losing weight. When people ask, "How I did it?" the closest answer is "I changed everything." Transformation: How to Change EVERYTHING: Books: Bill Phillips
