So these tips I am going to tell you are tips that are basically, if you follow them correctly and follow through with them and give it time. You are guaranteed to see those results in those areas. But I just want to break it down to a little bit more, so you know exactly why may be that's happening and what you can do to change it. Okay. Number one reason or number one way to try to get rid of that flab, is just get rid of the junk food, you guys. You know, you know. I know you know. You know what junk food is. It's cookies, it's anything that tastes ungodly good. You know it's cookies, candy, ice-cream, baked goods, Alfredo, going to the drive through. You know what bad foods are. Stop kidding ourselves. So what you want to do, is try to eliminate it from your diet. You have to eliminate it for at least a few days in order for you to start really feeling better and not feeling so dependent on this junk food. Start eating Lean Proteins, start cooking your own meal, eat more vegetable. Even if you know they say oh! Well, I can't eat five servings a day? Well, guess what, sometimes neither can I. So just at least have one serving a day. Have your fruits. Eat whole grains, eat Carbs. Carbs are good but eat good Carbs. Like oh! And whole grain carbs. Eat frequently throughout the day, just get rid of that junk fruit. I guarantee it, it's going to do you wonders, okay. Number two, log your food. It's not obsessive, it's called being responsible. You have minutes in a day, not even to just take a scrap sheet of paper and just leave it on your desk. Every time you eat something, log it, log it, log it. Every bite you take. You will be surprised at what you may be overeating. If you think oh! Well I just had breakfast, lunch and dinner. But you are forgetting, may be the handful candy that you grabbed at your co-workers' desk or your are forgetting about nitpicking at certain foods that you want to in an event, stuff like that.

Now, I am not saying this is for everybody, but for the majority of folks out there. For the majority of adults, that is pretty much the standard for the type -- the amount of food that you should eat. So, that's a good ballpark to start aiming for. If it's not working for you, then change it. Now, just a quick note for your food logs, you want your proteins to consist of anywhere from 30% to 40% of your daily nutrition. So, daily nutrition 34% should be protein. Carbohydrates should be 40% to 60%, no it's higher, see because carbohydrates are good, they give you energy. Fat should be 10% to 30% of your daily food that you eat. Just keep that in mind. Number 3, Do Cardio, Do Cardio. I want you to do three hours of cardio a week. Cardio is what?
