working-out.jpg If you know who Covert Bailey is you’ll appreciate these fitness tips. For those who don’t know he’s the adorable, father of modern fitness, guru extraordinaire, author of Fit or Fat, and the series of Fit or Fat books. I adore him! Here you go! Words of wisdom:

Covert Bailey’s Fit or Fat

1) Exercise. If exercise were a pill, it would be the most widely prescribed medicine in the world.
2) Eat a balanced diet, lower in fat, lower in sugar and higher in fiber.
3) Diets don’t work. Exercise is the bottom line behavior for weight management.
4) Throw away your scales. Measuring your body fat is a better indicator of health than your weight.
5) When trying to lose fat, aim for a maximum of 2 pounds a week.
6) If spot reducing worked, people who chew gum would have skinny faces.
7) Crash dieting, over exercising and fasting will slow down your metabolism.
8) People don’t stop exercising because they grow old, they grow old because they stop exercising.
9) It’s easy to lose weight. The challenge is to keep it off. Exercise works.
10) Don’t worry so much about your heart rate when you exercise. Use common sense and pace yourself so you can talk.
11) When you exercise, remind yourself, “I’m building fat-burning enzymes.”
12) If you get out of breath when you exercise, you’re going too fast.
13) One of the best ways to reduce stress is to exercise.
14) The older you are, the more important it is that you exercise. Exercise makes bones denser. Exercise helps maintain mobility.
15) Labels don’t lie, but liars write labels.
16) Statistics are like bikinis. They only reveal half the truth.
17) Upper-body weight training will help women maintain lean body mass.
18) More muscle equals less workout time.
19) Don’t say, “I don’t eat red meat.” Say, “I don’t eat greasy meats.”
20) There’s no such thing as cellulite. The word was dreamed up by people with products to market to describe skin with texture that shows underlying fat on some women more than others.
21) The best aerobic exercise is the one you’ll do every day.
22) The best time to exercise is when you will do it.
23) If you don’t seem to be getting more fit, you may be exercising too hard.
24) If you exercise more than 45 minutes 5 days a week, you aren’t doing it for fitness sake.
25) Beware of medically monitored diet programs. If you need a doctor, there must be something wrong.
