If you’re trying to lose weight, you know it’s a process. Getting back into those skinny jeans doesn’t happen overnight. Resisting dessert when everyone else is indulging isn’t easy. And making lifestyle changes to shed those extra pounds can be a long and challenging journey. One of the biggest mistakes people make when dieting is to have unrealistic expectations, like thinking a drastic transformation is somehow going to be quick or easy. What happens is that you set yourself up for what can become a vicious cycle: failure, guilt, then loss of confidence.
What’s one of the biggest buzz words in dieting? Almased! So what is it and how can it help you shed pounds? We’re glad you asked. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions:

Exercise doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, if you choose activities that interest you or keep you entertained, you’re much more likely to stick with a program that ultimately reveals a healthier, slimmer you.
Most of us aren’t strangers to caffeine. We count on our coffee to jump start the day or pour a great big cup of green tea when the afternoon slump sets in. But what about using caffeine to rev up a workout or help you lose weight? Is it a good idea? Does it even work?
