Ask Joe: Fat Loss, Sleep, And Exercise DVDs- Rapid Fire Edition

Happy Friday! Here are some rapid fire Ask Joe Questions!

“Hey Joe! Why can’t I seem to lose the weight around my belly but everywhere else seems to get slimmer?”
You really can’t control where you lose weight from. The fat around your belly is surrounds your vital organs, so it’s likely that you will loose weight in your arms and legs before your mid-section. However, you still will lose inches around your waist. Just be patient and stay consistent!

“Is it okay to workout late at night?”
If you are a “night owl” and prefer to workout at night, sure! The one caveat is making sure you get enough sleep. Numerous studies are showing weight loss and sleep are related.

“I live out of town away from any gyms, what can I do to workout?”
Here’s what I would do: Try to get a group of you together and do an exercise DVD together. Make everyone in the group accountable to show up and track each others progress.

If you have any “Ask Joe questions” send them over to joe [at]!

    I have been eating a lot of Healthy Choices, but they have a lot of sodium. The American Heart Association recommends them. The prices are great!

    What is the solution to this?


    1. Hey Donna!

      Awesome question!

      The sodium comes from the preservatives and flavor additives that you find in Healthy Choices and other “heat and eat” meals. This can easily be fixed by making your own ready-to-go meals. Now I know it might now be as convenient, however it is by far the healthiest way. Plus as far as taste goes, by far the best tasting way too!

      I will do a blog post this week about this. :)

      Thanks for reading!
