What's the Best Method to Get Fit Fast?

Her mission is intense and has included up to two hours per day of long, slow "fat burning" running. That is, until she injured herself and her Achilles tendon from overuse.

Body Composition—Why You Ought to Ditch the Scale

A healthy weight is not always reflected by the bathroom scale. Knowing your body composition ratio of fat-to-lean body mass is a much more accurate and objective measure of your health and fitness.
 

Body weight is deceptive and unreliable because as we all know our body weight can change by a lot day-to-day, hour-by-hour, simply from the foods we eat. For example, a salty meal can leave you bloated and unable to button your favorite jeans, and a night of unhealthy foods can leave you constipated.
