7 Deathly Dieting Mistakes
7 Deadly Dieting Mistakes

 
It's a common problem. You've been on a diet for weeks and aren't losing weight like you thought you would.
 
It may be because you're consuming more calories than you think.
 
Keep reading to discover seven sneaky habits that may be sabotaging your weight loss efforts.
 
Mistake #1: Forgetting Liquid Calories
 
It's easy to forget that the things you drink have calories - some more than you'd think. In fact, some have more calories than an entire meal.

It is estimated that around 20 percent of your daily calories come from what you drink. So as you drink your juice with breakfast, rehydrate with a sports drink at the gym, or drink a glass of wine at dinner, think about the calories you're adding.

For calories' sake, it's best to avoid all sweetened ssoft drinks, packaged coffees, teas, and smoothies. Replace these high-calorie drinks with water, skim milk, and unsweetened herbal tea. Because while they taste great, liquids just don't satisfy hunger, for the most part they are just empty calories.

Mistake #2 Meal Skipping
Many dieters think they'll cut their calorie intake by skipping a meal, usually brekky.

But this is a mistake for your waist.

Research has shown that those who skip breakfast actually weigh more than those who eat three meals a day....

Top 10 Exercise Ball Moves to Tighten Core
Top 10 Exercise Ball Moves to Tighten Core

With everything that you've got going on in your life, taking time to tighten your core is probably not a high priority.
Sure, you'd love to have tight abs, and you exercise when you can, but your core could definitely use some more attention. An easy way to incorporate core strengthening into your exercise routine is to work the following 10 exercise ball moves into your routine.
As with other exercises, warm up before using a swiss ball. When performing specific exercises, keep your back straight, avoid locking your knees, and breathe properly. The size of ball you use should be based on your height and weight. When sitting on a ball, your thighs should be parallel to the ground. Choose dumbbell weights based on your fitness level. #1: Ball Push-UpA great way to work your chest, triceps and core muscles is the ball push-up. Rest your upper thighs or feet on the ball and place your hands on the floor shoulder width apart. Lower your upper body toward the ground until your arms are bent at 90 degrees, and then lift back up. This inclined position really targets your chest. #2: Ball Sit-UpUsing the ball for sit-ups works your abdominal, core, and hip muscles. Sit on the top front of the ball and place your hands behind your head. Lie back until your back is touching the ball, and then slowly sit back up straight, lifting with your abs and not your neck. #3: Ball...
