Certain habits can hinder your attempts to lose weight - and keep it away.
If you've changed your eating habits to focus on healthier foods and taken your workout seriously, you can expect to lose weight. However, the reality is that despite what you may have believed, weight loss is more complicated than calorie consumption versus calorie consumption. If you are trying to lose weight, check these habits that may interfere with your efforts.
1. You save on protein.
If you normally eat a muffin or avocado toast for breakfast, you may need to increase your protein intake. Research has shown that a high-protein breakfast can help alleviate hunger, so you may be less tempted to have a morning snack.
Protein is also important at lunch and dinner. If you routinely eat salads or sip gazpacho without accompanying protein - such as boiled egg, yogurt, beans, meat, poultry, or fish - over time, this can lead to a decrease in muscle tissue, which means that your metabolism will slow down and mak…

Fitness Icon Shaun T Explains Why Black Lives Matter in This Powerful 40-Minute Podcast

Shaun T is known for his upbeat and motivating personality in the fitness world through his workout programs such as T25 and Insanity. In the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd, he felt compelled to share his experiences as a Black man in an episode of his podcast, Trust and Believe, titled "Why Black Lives Matter."

As a fitness motivator teaching all over the world, Shaun said he's always had the intention of lifting people up and inspiring them to push hard. But with all the pain that's hit America in the last couple of weeks with the racist murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and the responding protests, Shaun said, "a lot of internal feelings started to just fill up in my gut, in my core."

Shaun wants you to share what you learn from this video with everyone you know to help explain why Black people are so passionate about the Black Lives Matter movement and why the message isn't "all lives matter." He said that if you aren't someone who understands why people are protesting, this episode may help you understand "the anger, the sadness, the pain, the emotion, the different levels of emotion, the different opinions and feelings that Black people have as we go through this terrible time."

He brought up the house-on-fire analogy you may have already heard, made popular by cartoonist Kris Straub (@krisstraub): if a house is on fire in your neighborhood, when you call the fire department, you don't want them to spray water on all the houses, you want them to spray the house that's burning. He said, "We want to take care of our neighborhood in general, but when there is a house on fire, and no one wants to acknowledge that the house is on fire, that's where the pain begins. And that's why we say 'Black lives matter, too.'"

He explains that Black people aren't just reacting to the tragedy of George Floyd. They're reacting because their great grandparents, grandparents, and parents have also been through racial discrimination, violence, and hardship, and their ancestors have been through even worse. So in seeing what happened to George Floyd, Shaun said Black people are seeing and reacting to hundreds of years of pain.

He went on to describe some experiences he had in his childhood because of being Black, how his family taught him that he had to leave his house "acting right," and felt his culture was something he couldn't openly show or celebrate. He also shared personal experiences with racism when traveling, going into stores, and driving, and the fear he has for his life and his own children's lives.

This podcast is about 40 minutes long, and it's important to watch the whole thing to really hear his experience and message. Heed Shaun's advice and takes notes and share this episode with everyone you know.
