How Does An Extra 20 Pounds Affect You at Home or Work?

Put on a 10 pound vest and 5 pound ankle weights to see how that extra weight changes your workout in the gym or at home.  Just walking, you'll notice the difference!

You'll become more convinced to watch your food choices, portions and exercise regime.

The more weight you carry, the harder your heart has to work, the more stress there will be on your joints and your breathing is challenged too.  Why did my trainer do this to me?  To burn more calories.  He also wanted to emphasize that I shouldn't eat too much or exercise too little.

I found the squats, the forward/sideways lunges, the treadmill, the box steps and bike, all required greater balance, increased breathing and more intensity from me. 

It was a joy to take off the weights and try the exercises without them!

Moral of the story?  Keep your weight in the normal range and keep up the good work with your exercise routine, supplementation and healthy food choices.

Note:  The USANA RESET 5-day program, which incorporates nutritional shakes for 3 meals a day, and nutritional bars for snacks, along with supplements, is an excellent way to jump start a weight management program.  It can help balance your metabolism, cut the carb cravings and give you more energy.  Follow up with the Transform and Maintain phases.  Ask me about them.  The system works.
