1. Less is More! The old myth that more is more when it comes to excercise has gone by the wayside in recent years as research proves that short, infrequent, high intensity interval training workouts burns more calories and builds more muscle than spending everyday at the gym. This is great news because HIT (high intensity training) can be done just as effectively at HOME. "Australian researchers found that women who alternated just 8 seconds of high-intensity
exercise with 12 seconds of low-intensity activity for 20 minutes, 3 times a week, slimmed down faster than steady-paced exercisers who worked out twice as long. Those who did intervals lost up to 16 pounds, shrunk their bellies by 12% and their thighs by 15%, and gained, on average, 1½ pounds of metabolism-revving muscle in 4 months!"

2. Thermogenics Thermogenics is just a fancy scientific name for increasing your body temp. And here is the cool thing (or er-the HOT thing), this can be done by eating certain foods! I LOVE this! "Thermogenic substances are naturally present in several food items. Caffeine in coffee, tea and chocolate, catechins in green, white and oolong tea, and capsaicins in red chili peppers can promote weight loss by temporarily increasing thermogenesis in your body. A study published in the International Journal of Obesity in 2005 reports that eating these thermogenic ingredients can boost your metabolism by 4 percent to 5 percent and fat burning by 10 percent to 16 percent."
