Many people are doing the wrong type of aerobic exercises to meet their goals.

Welcome to the beginning of "bikini season."
Steve came to see me when the physical discomfort of carrying around extra weight was worse than the pleasure of overeating all of his favorite high-fat, high-calorie foods. My promise of no dieting or deprivation was especially appealing to him because he had never had to deal with losing weight earlier in life and was at a loss on managing it alone. He was in a busy, high-stress career and had never taken the time to shop for food or cook.
This is for you if you want to lose weight, but need motivation and inspiration to get started.
