Have you been on any meds recently for colds or flu...steroids in particular? Abbie has and she actually gained three pounds. Today, Eric talks to Abbie and Micha about the effects that some medications could have on weight loss and whether it's better for your fitness routine to use them, or to simply ride it out. Listen in to find out more. Micha decided to brighten things up this week, so she had her hair dyed magenta and purple, set to fade to lavender! You can go to Facebook or to Instagram (#purplerains) to catch her new look. She's also been amping up her fitness over the past couple of weeks and she and Abbie have been comparing notes, to ensure that they're both achieving the results they want. It's really helpful to have a fitness partner to learn from and to motivate and inspire you and they both agree that it's great to have your bestie as your fitness partner, as it's way easier to learn from your close friends without your ego getting involved. Listen in to this week's show and find out how you can use resistance training to lose weight, rather than it bulking you up. What you'll hear in this episode: •The effects of medication -steroids in particular on your metabolism and appetite. • Steroids can affect your weight, depending on what you're using them for and the conditions which are present in your body at the time. • Eric suggests that if Abbie stops eating as soon as she's satisfied her hunger, he predicts she will lose 4-5 pounds next week. • Hiring a Personal Trainer for 1-3 sessions at the gym, to teach you a full body resistance workout. • Dealing with a Personal Trainer at a gym and explaining exactly what you want from them. • An exercise routine that will help you to lose weight rather than bulking you up. • Busting the myth that muscle weighs more than fat. • That the difference between the weight of muscle and the weight of fat is related directly to density. • Setting yourself up for success.
