How a Fitness Guru Got Ripped!

Many people think or blame that those fitness models, experts or gurus were just naturally born with good genetics and great bodies.

It may well be true. But one thing in common among them is that they still train hard, eat well and find their own programs or systems that work for them.

One of the most renowned fat loss expert and natural bodybuilder Tom Venuto posted a story about how he got ripped for the very first time.

In his story, Tom detailed his journey from a good weightlifter to a champion natural bodybuilder with a set of most envied six pack abs.

Tom summarized the 7 lessons learned from his journey.

1. Set the big goal and go for it.
2. Align your values with your goals.
3. Do the math. Stop looking for magic.
4. Get social support.
5. Be consistent.
6. Persist through difficulty and self doubt.
7. Redeem yourself.

Less Learned from Tim Russert - How to Avoid Sudden Heart Attack

On Friday, one of the most influential people in broadcast journalism, Tim Russert, passed away. He died of a heart attack at age 58.

I watched Larry King and he interviewed a few cardiovascular experts asking them about Tim Russert's heart attack. Tim had a stress test in late April. But the test didn't reveal that he had heart disease.

Larry King asked one of the doctors as to how else could Tim have known he was at risk for heart disease. And the doctor said, his waist circumference. The size of your waist is a very valid predictor of your risk of heart disease.

"The Size of Your Waist is a Very Valid Predictor of Your Risk of Heart Disease."

I have repeatedly talked about the danger of excess belly fat and its link cancer, heart disease and many other diseases.

Although getting your lean and sexy abs makes you look great on the beach, the reality is that a flat stomach can help save your life!

Here is a quick calculation you can do to see if you are at higher risk for heart disease. This came from one of the doctors on Larry King.

Take your height in inches. Measure your waist at the level of your belly button using a tape measure. If your waist size is more than half of your height, then you may be at risk for heart disease.

Try the calculation and see what you come up with. If your waist is too big, you probably know what you need to do.
