I'd have to say that the trainer and nutritionist in this article know what they are talking about. That's not to diss the other two experts, it's just that I am unfamiliar with those scenarios. The training and nutritition gigs though, I have plenty of experience with. 

 

People can click through to read the specifics as posted in the comments on this article, but 2 years ago I was muffintopping out of a size 12 and now I am a size 8 (I'm 5'9"). I got here basically doing what the trainer and nutritionist quoted in this piece say to do.

Been working out in a gym for the first time in my life.  Some weights, and mostly cardio (mostly bikes), which I'm hoping will reduce my mid-section too.  Just trying to get/stay healthy.  Also try to be active outdoors (walks, trail bicycle, mountain bike, etc.)  I've found the real meaning of no pain no gain LOL  Battling the muscle and joint soreness (onset of arthritis) with protein drinks after a workout.

That's all well and good unless the movement causes the pain!

A slothful life is perfect for aging cheese and wine, but I know it won’t work for me. Keep active.
