For the best quantity surveyor company, call EK Consultants.

Even if you undertook the task of building your own deck, you understand the large investment (both monetary and in time) that went into the project. Decks add beauty and value to a home, and are often the family s favorite place on lovely afternoons. In order to protect that investment, deck waterproofing is nearly as important as making sure your basement is dry and safe from water damage.

Even if you undertook the task of building your own deck, you understand the large investment (both monetary and in time) that went into the project. Decks add beauty and value to a home, and are often the family s favorite place on lovely afternoons. In order to protect that investment, deck waterproofing is nearly as important as making sure your basement is dry and safe from water damage.

After the completion of your deck, either you or the contracted builder should seal the wood with a water-resistant coating. Water-resistant sealants are painted on the wood, covering the entire deck. This coating helps to protect the wood from absorbing excess water. Not only does this seal the deck but also provides wonderful preservation of the deck s beauty.

If you choose to use redwood for your deck, waterproofing can extend the life of the wood s color. It is strongly recommended that you seal this type of wood prior to construction. This ensures that the wood was properly and evening coated with the deck waterproofing sealant. When using redwood for construction, be sure re-apply the sealant coating once every 12 to 18 months in order to prevent the wood from darkening.

Untreated wood will eventually become damaged. Being submitted to harsh weather and direct sunlight is often a killer of untreated wood. Wood can begin to rot, crack, and in severe cases, provide an open invitation to termites. Redwood is not as prone to rot and other damage as softer, lighter woods. Despite its durability, you should seriously consider waterproofing for enhanced beauty. Deck waterproofing is the only way to prevent premature damage to your deck. Decks are often a substantial investment and deck waterproofing is insurance for your peace of mind.

Learn How to Play and Win Blackjack after practicing some basic steps that can be learn easily. Blackjack is one of the more easier card games that you will come across, and its basic concept is simple: get 21 as the sum of your cards or get as close to 21 but higher than the sum of your opponent’s cards.

1) Do not try and reach 21.
Yes. Even though blackjack is also commonly called 21, trying to reach 21 with every hand is an amateurish move. You will, most certainly, lose the hand. Statistical research conducted has shown that the odds of reaching 21 is lesser than the odds of getting more than 21.

2) Try and Beat the Dealer.
Since blackjack is a one on one battle: you versus the dealer, focus on beating the dealer. Instead of trying to get 21, try to guess what hand the dealer will receive and accordingly play your hand. Remember that the dealer at a regular casino or even at an online casino has to stop taking more cards if the cards on the table add up to 17. But if their cards add up to 16 or any number less, they will have to take another card.

3) Look at the dealer’s card facing up.
The only way to play is to look at the dealer’s card facing up. If it is a low card like a two or anything up to a 6 or 7, try and get a high number combination. If it’s a 9 or 10, the odds are high that he has a 10 underneath or at least he will be forced to take another card. So, reach anything up to 20 or 21, but its better to even stop at a 18 or 19 and hope they will over-run the sum of 21.

How Blackjack is Played at a Casino:
1) Place your bet on the table.
Each blackjack table has a set beginning bet and this ranges from a dollar to ten or twenty for the high-rollers crowd. This is the amount of chips you will have to put down, and this signals to the dealer that you are taking part in the next round.

2) You will get a card.
The dealer then deals a card to you and all the other players who have also placed a bet down.

3) The dealer places a face-up card in front.
This is one of the cards of the dealer, and since its facing up, all the players have a chance to judge the outcome of his cards.

4) The dealer deals the second card.
The dealer, then, deals you and all the players an additional card. This is the time to have a look at them and at the dealer’s card and decide whether you wish to get another card.

5) The dealer asks.
The dealer now turns to each player and asks them if they wish to receive another card. If you wish it, the dealer will give you a card. Then, the dealer will ask you again. Note that the dealer will be with you until you decide that you do not want to receive any more cards. Then, the dealer moves on to the next player, then, the next, and so on.

6) The dealer starts playing.
Only when all the players have said that they do not want any more cards, does the dealer start playing. He takes cards until he has reached 17 or above. Then, he has to stop.

7) The dealer opens the cards.
When he’s done, the dealer first reveals all his cards. Then, he moves from one player to the other opening their cards. After revealing each player’s hands, the dealer pays out the bet or takes the bet away according to who has won and who has lost.

Are you bored with your kitchen? You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to give it a little face lift. Just follow these tips and you’ll make big changes on a little budget.

Need a colorful window treatment? Simply purchase an inexpensive basswood shade and paint it in a bright color. You can use a partially dry brush and paint randomly for an aged look.

Paint your walls a bright, sunny yellow and randomly paint over a few areas with a deeper yellow, a dark peach, and terra cotta. Mix the paints with a glazing liquid and wipe each coat with a wet cloth before the paint dries.

Paint your old cabinets with a few layers of paint using a dry brush. You can purchase pin stripe tape for automobiles and apply it just under the molding for an attractive accent.

Using a fabric panel with hook-and-loop fastening tape to create skirting around your under-counter areas. You can cover aging appliances such as dishwashers and worn cabinets with a colorful new curtain that hangs from underneath the edge of your counter tops.

Use your mismatched dishes and cups to decorate a stylish shelf hanging on your kitchen wall. Brightly colored dishes and hanging teacups make cute decorations.

Use your treasured family photos to decorate a shelf or nooks. You can use cheap picture frames and a cute shelf as an expression of your home and your life.

If your counter tops are not what they once were, remove the old surface and replace it with colorful, mismatched tiles you can purchase for next to nothing at a discount home store. If your counter tops are uneven, use a piece of plywood to even out the surface before you put down the tiles.

If your refrigerator has seen its better days, have a local supplier cut chalkboard to fit the front and glue it directly to the surface of your refrigerator. Use pine boards to make a border and you will have your own personal note center right on your refrigerator.

Decorating your kitchen need not be expensive. With a little imagination and a little work you can turn even the most boring kitchen into a work of art. Colorful curtains and paint will make a huge difference in any kitchen. No matter how small or dark the space may be.

Coconut Oil – More Than The Average Saturated Fat

Sherri L Dodd
For the best online pilates classes company, call Cara McGrath Pilates.

To find the best online pilates classes company, click here for Cara McGrath Pilates. 2065
Origin: Southeast Asia, South America, New Zealand and India
Description: Known as Sanskrit “the tree which provides all the necessities of life”, the Coconut Palm yields 50-75 coconuts per year and not a part of it goes unused. Coconut water contains sugars, fiber, protein, anti-oxidants and a variety of vitamins and minerals. The sap from cutting the flowers from the tree is used to make a drink called “toddy”. The fibrous husk from the tree, the coir, is used in many things including ropes, mats, brushes and potting soil. If you no longer need a coconut tree, the apical bud of an adult tree can be eaten as “palm-cabbage”, and the “heart of the palm” is a delicacy in gourmet salads. The ‘no longer’ clause due to consuming these will kill the tree. And of course, there is the white meat of the nut that can be eaten directly or used to make coconut milk, coconut cream, and coconut oil of which we will focus today.
Benefits: Researchers have increasingly revisited the health benefits of coconut oil. The findings have associated it with many healthful benefits starting with weight loss due to the medium length of the fatty acid chains (aka MCT’s). Though it is considered a saturated fat, coconut oil is a different structure from the notorious saturated animal fats, and even offers benefits not available in the longer chained plant oils. The medium length of the coconut’s fatty acid chain enables rapid breakdown in digestion as well as ease of use when burned for energy. These same MCT’s, along with monoglycerides, are found primarily in coconut oil and breast milk and contribute toward well-being, which includes a role in thyroid health. It has tested well in helping prevent hypothyroidism due to its evasion of rancidity. Studies show that rancidity is harmful to the thyroid as well as many cells throughout the body. (The plant oils used by mainstream food manufacturers have a high propensity toward rancidity and must be processed through hydrogenation into trans-fatty acids.)
Another benefit of using coconut oil is that it supports the suppression of Candida (aka, yeast) in the digestive system. While yeast commonly inhabits your digestive system, it is kept controlled due to the body’s presence of probiotics (aka “good” bacteria). In the event the person starts taking antibiotics, prescription medications, birth control pills or maintains a poor diet and experiences daily stress, Candida yeast begins to fiercely outnumber the good bacteria, causing evidence of infection. Also, digestive disorders such as Crohn’s disease and IBS can have positive results from one consuming coconut oil. The MCTs will not only be easily digested, but will also assist in the absorption of the nutrients from other foods.
Blurb: While time may be limited on the amount of pampering a mother can do for herself, there are steps that can be taken to look our best and coconut oil is here to help. Coconut oil is used for treating damaged hair, dry scalp and pimples, moisturizing dry and aging skin, and enabling anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral effects throughout the body. It has also shown great reduction of keratosis polaris, rosacea and psoriasis. You do not have to pay absorbent fees for beauty products. Instead, buy a large jar of the solid oil and use it directly on the appropriate area as well as ingesting it for overall well being…it tastes great and goes down smooth!

First Look- The site looks like your typical sales site. One veeerrry long page, which starts out with a letter saying ‘Dear Friend’. This’ll be interesting. I don’t understand how an e-book could help people lose weight and gain muscle. However, I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt, and explore more. Good thing I did! The product is actually an MP3 containing tele-seminar recordings and 6 hours of content. They also provide the transcripts of the recordings. I enjoy following along to tapes with something in my hand, so its good for me that you can print it out. The price is reasonable, considering the content. At $47.00, it’s not going to Starbucks for a week or so. Heck, you can start dieting while you save money in the jar for the recordings!

Promises/Claims- They promise many things, after all, this is a fitness product! I’ll list some of the ones I thought were more important on here. Check out the link at the bottom of this review for all of them.

Audio #1- Goal Setting And Mental Training Strategies For Unstoppable Motivation

* How to “reprogram” your subconscious mind for die-hard persistence. Once you listen to this part, and do the mind-training Tom has you do, you’ll laugh at how much you used to “procrastinate” before.

* A mental mind-game to do every morning, to get your mindset set on success every day. If you do this, you’ll never fall into self-sabotage again.

* How to develop DIE-HARD consistence with your exercising, training, and eating habits, to set yourself up for success.

* A way to overcome the biggest obstacle in improving your body. The old “I don’t have the time” problem. How to “find the time” and transform your body despite your busy schedule.

* How to use the power of associations and pain & pleasure to curb your appetite and stop comfort eating.

* The power of “chunking.” How to feel completely clear and certain about your training, without being overwhelmed! When you apply this, you’ll be surprised when you find yourself “looking forward” to following your fat burning, muscle building plan!

* A powerful method to make sure you never get “bummed out” and “de-motivated” so you’ll never have to “make” yourself get up and take action.

* Changing your focus to make sure you have an incredible amount of energy all day to achieve your body and health goals. (This one method is worth the entire tele-seminar series)

Alright, alright. I admit it. This disk excited me so much I had to post the whole thing. Oh my god. Pardon me, while I gape. IF these things are true, wow. Right now, I’m going to give it a 12 on a scale of 1-10.

Audio #2-Nutrition Fundamentals For Health, Energy, Fat Loss And Muscle Growth

* Overcoming food cravings. How to make sure you stick to your nutrition plan.

* How to build a diet that totally empowers you, keeps your body energized and lets your body burn fat. While you enjoy what you’re eating.

* The ONE thing you must do at the end of each day, for 5 minutes, to guarantee your success. hint: it doesn’t involve eating or exercise. Tom said this is the most critical point to remember daily.

Well, not as exciting. I didn’t post everything this time. However, put it in perspective of tennis. If you know the technique, then the mind game is of the utmost importance. But you have to know the technique in the first place! Similarly, you need to know how to lose weight, before you learn how to get your mind to stay on track.

Audio #3, Training And Nutrition Strategies For Fat Loss

* After 4 weeks of training, your body usually goes into a “plateau” and result stop coming. Tom will share his most powerful strategy to overcome this. The “zig zag” method. aka: “calorie-cycling”

* How to tell if your body is “carb sensitive.” If your body is “carb sensitive”, will NOT burn fat unless you make this one change in your nutrition plan. This is easy to understand, and Tom explains it very thoroughly.

* Why most people NEVER lose weight, because they miss the one critical element of a successful fat burning program. hint: it has to do with starving yourself (you DON’T need to go on a diet!)

* The truth about fat burning supplement. Tom get’s approached by multi-milliondollar supplement companies every month to promote their products. He gives them the finger every-time. You’ll learn exactly why.

I’m liking this disk. I hate the idea of supplements as well: if you eat right, you don’t need supplements! Also, I would love to find out how to get past that plateau. I bet everyone has gotten there at some point or the other.

Audio #4, Training And Nutrition Strategies For Muscle Growth

* Why most people who try to gain muscle, gain more FAT than they gain muscle, becuase they don’t know one simple nutrition princple. You’ll learn how to avoid this common pitfall.

* Muscle building supplement: There is only one muscle building supplement that Tom recommends.

* How to overcome plateaus(slow or no results) in your training with the law of adaptation and muscle confusion.

* The secret of “nutrient timing” – Adding this one element to your training can make the difference between no results, and success.

I’m confused about the ‘muscle building supplement’ part. I think its probably going to be something witty, like lots of water, but could be him endorsing something. The other points seem enticing though. I’m very excited about this.

Onsite Testimonials- He doesn’t flood the whole page with testimonials. That just annoys me most of the time: okay, okay, I get it, everyone loves your product! There are three testimonials, and all of them emphasize how much his ‘mental’ tips helped them out.

Now I’m going to begin looking at forums, reviews, and articles off his site.

The forums generally seem to have the most honest reviews, because the forum members are just people chatting about the selected topic.

Here are some quotes from forums:

“I think that Venuto goes way above and beyond with this, and there’s far more nutritional information – and it’s understandable! – to be found here than anywhere else. Even people with a “good grasp” could definitely benefit. The only drawback that I could see is maybe there wasn’t enough information on workouts, but I think it just appears that way because there’s so much on nutrition. There’s more than enough to start and effective and efficient plan.”

“I love the book….as soon as i read the first chapter…i was pumped!!! it helps with everything as these guys say…from mental prep. to grading foods to weight training….its got everything but how to make a buldowser out of duct tape (seek McGiver for that)”

“Venuto seems to really know his stuff… I just got the book a few days ago and I’m working through it (it’s huge – 300+ pages) and it has an astounding amount of information. Personally, I wish it was a hard copy – I’d probably be willing to pay more for it – but I guess this way is cheaper and more portable. I’m just a little more than half way done, but I’ve learned a lot already.

I’ll have to look into the other stuff you guys recommended. I’m gonna try and finish up BFFM first though ”

This is tough, I can’t find a negative sentence. Other than it having too much information, nothing really bad about this!

Also, this guy has a TON of articles posted around the net. To me, it shows he really knows his stuff. Here’s some of his articles. I found dozens of others as well. One that interested me was titled “Nutrition Or Training – Which Is More Important”. I suggest looking through his free articles.

Verdict: Burn The Fat is an amazing resource. It has virtually no complaints, other than being too big, and perhaps not having enough material on lifting weights. Really doesn’t matter if your goal is to lose weight, tone your body, or become Mr. Universe! Its good for anybody.

Some people say that shopping for the perfect swimming pool can be as mind-boggling as shopping for a new car. The choices of make, model, and accessories are just as overwhelming, and advice from competing salespeople often make little sense.

The most important swimming pool accessory is the pool cover. You will use the plastic cover to seal the pool for the winter and to protect the pool from the harsh elements such as wind, ice and debris. A durable plastic cover will also prevent children or pets from taking an unplanned dip. The pool cover usually needs something heavy to keep it in place, such as sandbags or plain fabric straps.

Another popular swimming pool accessory is a skimmer to collect dead leaves, branches, insects and other debris from the water surface. A skimmer looks like a huge badminton racket that collects the floating objects. A sturdy solid skimmer will save you money on the pool maintenance. Ideally you should clean dead leaves daily, because too many leaves in the pool can damage your water filters and make you use more harmful chlorine to keep water clean.

If left untreated, a concrete pool surface can be quite hard on skin and not too appealing. Many people opt for cheerful pool paints to keep the pool tidy and fun. Pool paints are usually water- or rubber based, or epoxy. When used regularly, pool paints will greatly prolong the life of the swimming pool protecting its surfaces from sun, harsh elements and chemically enhanced pool water.

Antifreeze is an essential pool accessory for those who live in colder climates. When sealing the pool for the winter, you should drain the water out of the swimming pool plumbing and pour the antifreeze into the pump and pipes. Now you are ready to seal the pool for the winter.

Pool furniture can be as basic as possible. You can limit yourself with two or three lounge chairs and a table, or you can decorate your pool side like a second living room. No matter what style you choose, remember to pick the pieces that have rubber no-mark coating on the legs so not to disrupt the pool paint. The ideal pool furniture should be able to withstand the winter under a plastic cover and still please your eye in the spring.

Swimming pool accessories and pool supplies is something that you can cut corners on. If your budget is running low, you can still keep your pool clean and safe with discount swimming pool supplies that you can buy online or in swimming pool store outlets.

However, there s something that you can t really save on: pool chemicals. Choosing discount chemicals may often mean choosing outdated or otherwise low-quality and deteriorating supplies which in the long run could cause pool problems that could cost you more.

On the Internet you can find a lot of swimming pool equipment stores that can sell to you for less since they don t have overhead store costs. Choosing and buying your pool accessories can be quite time and money consuming, but carrying out proper maintenance costs much less than large repairs.

Article Body:
The scientists conducting research on Generic Cialis rarely interacted with the men who were asked to sell that product. On one afternoon in 2006, however, the two groups did get together. The executives who arranged that meeting hoped to find a better way to prevent leakage of information about findings made in the company laboratories.

The executives had received information on a couple of ways to detect information thieves. The executives wanted to get input from the scientists and marketers on those potential detection methods. The executives hoped to receive feedback on the degree to which such detection methods might cut-off leakage of information to those making and selling Generic Viagra

First the two groups studied a method that involved use of electronic watermarks. Such watermarks could be put on documents that were passed through a special Xerox product. The Xerox product put an invisible serial number on each document. That invisible serial number does not show up on a copy of the original document.

The executives had considered purchasing that special Xerox product. It would allow them to mark papers with information on Generic Cialis. If any of those papers were stolen, it would be possible to trace them.

One scientist was familiar with the watermarks. He had also learned about one reason why the executives might not want to use them. The scientist admitted that a thief could get caught, if he provided valuable information to the makers of Generic Viagra. At the same time, however, use of the watermarks would anger the members of the ACLU. That would give the company bad PR.

The executives then asked those at the meeting to examine a second detection technique. It involved use of copyright traps. All company documents with valuable information would receive some faked information. The company executives could then watch for statements that included that faked information. The holder of that faked information could be charged with possession of leaked material.

One of the marketers had read about that detection method. The source available to the marketer (an issue of Wired Magazine) had said this: “Best for protecting that epic encyclopedia of sex positions you spent decades researching.” The same source had also provided the marketer with this advice: “Courts have ruled that just like real facts, fake facts can’t be copyrighted.”

Keeping that advice in mind, the marketer suggested to the company executives that they not plan to use copyright traps. The executives agreed. The head of the marketing department finally turned to the other marketers.

“It looks like we have no good way to identify how information on planned improvements in Generic Cialis might reach our competitors. For that reason, you will need to step up your efforts at selling our ED pills. You will have to work harder than the salespeople who want to market Generic Viagra.”

In order to add a lighter note to the meeting, the head marketer closed with these words: “Hey, Bud, you need to spend less time doing research on sex positions and more time selling our ED pills.”

Bisphenol A and You!

Terry Connors
For the best Pilates Mat company, call Cara McGrath Pilates.

Mr. McGuire: I just want to say one word to you – just one word.
Ben: Yes sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Ben: Yes I am.
Mr. McGuire: ‘Plastics.’
— The Graduate
Yes, plastics. The miracle of modern science. Without plastics. . . why, there are a whole bunch of things we wouldn’t have. And you want things, don’t you? Of course you do. You can’t do without things.
A Bisphenol A molecule
According to a study by the University of Cincinnati, Bisphenol A – a chemical that mimics estrogen in the human body – affects developing brains at much lower concentrations than previously thought. The research team, led by Dr. Scott Belcher, PhD, showed that the maximum effect of Bisphenol A occurs at 0.23 parts per trillion.
I hear you groan: “Please, don’t lecture us about something else that can kill us. Every day, its something new – how are we supposed to remember what to avoid?”
Rest assured, dear reader, there is nothing you can do to avoid Bisphenol A. . . at least, not at the concentrations necessary to do harm.
Bisphenol A is used to manufacture polycarbonate plastic (used in many food containers – including baby bottles). It is also used to make an epoxy-resin coating that lines the inside of most of our canned food. It is also used in electrical wiring, and has a myriad of other uses.
Lets pause here for a moment to clarify something. Just because something is made from something else, does not mean that there is any of the original material present in the finished good. If the final product is much more chemically stable than the original material, there is very little chance that the original material will be present at any detectable level.
However, that is not the case with polycarbonate and epoxy resins made from Bisphenol A. These products have been shown to be somewhat unstable, which can lead to a breakdown into Bisphenol A, which can lead to subsequent human exposure.
Previous research (by a pro-Bisphenol A organization, no less) has shown that the typical daily exposure to Bisphenol A for the average person measures about 20-30 nanograms per kilogram of body weight. Thats about 20-30 parts per trillion, in other words — 100 times higher than the amount necessary to damage a developing brain.
“So, what does it do? How does it kill me? How can I avoid this horrible fate?”
First, it won’t kill you. Although there are many other reports from over the years that have linked Bisphenol A to breast, ovarian, and prostate cancer, you have to ingest much more Bisphenol A to get these effects. As much as several parts per million, in fact.
However, Bisphenol A has its greatest impact at the low dose of 0.23 parts per trillion on developing brains. It affects the brains by “appearing” to be estrogen in the body. This can block normal estrogen functionality, which research has shown to be crucial at certain developmental stages in the human fetus. It is unclear what this inhibited estrogen action will have on the person in later life.
As a former chemist who used to work with inks and coatings, I know that Bisphenol A is very easy to formulate with. It has been used for decades, and there are a large number of resources on Bisphenol A to assist a bench chemist formulate. I also know that there are many other materials that can be used that are much safer, and no more expensive than Bis-A.
I know its hard to keep straight what is really dangerous and what isn’t. A huge number of people have been sucked in by the Aspartame hoax, for example, and all of them have the best intentions. However, Bisphenol A is a known carcinogen, a known sensitiser, and now is a possbile teratagen. We also know that it unecessary to use Bisphenol A since there are other, safer, materials that can replace it. So why don’t we?
I’m not really sure, but I bet it has something to do with money.

Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (Lose Body Fat) – Product Review

article:

At first glance, this product manual’s title (Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle) was a bit distracting. While the 300+ page manual does a good job of explaining how increased muscle strength helps lose body fat and why its more important to lose body fat versus lose weight; I wasn’t sure about the content of the product manual until I read it in its entirety. The overall premise is to burn the body fat with exercise and feed the muscle with good nutrition plans. The author, Tom Venuto, is a body builder and that helps explain some of the direction of the manual.
On the plus side, Tom’s instructional product manual has a tremendous amount of information including goal setting, discussions on meal frequency and exercise plans, just to name a few. On the negative side (depending on your perspective), it contains a few references about the basics of weight loss (or body fat loss) such as drinking plenty of water and burn more calories than you consume. Basics are covered in 2 of the 17 chapters, so it didn’t waste too much of the reader’s time.
Overall, I would rate this instructional manual, (Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle) an 8.5 out of 10. If you have the ability to motivate yourself and take action by reading a manual, then the price for this product of $39 is a great value. However, if reading an instructional manual isn’t enough to motivate you to take action to lose body fat, then you may benefit from a more multimedia rich program such as Denise Austin’s Fit Forever , Billy Blanks’ Tae-Bo, or Winsor Pilates . These other programs include CDs, videos and/or charts. However, if you do consider these other programs, they may cost a bit more.
What I liked
1. 1. Tom’s full chapter on setting ‘compelling’ goals helps the reader understand the importance of defining a compelling reason for unstoppable motivation to succeed. In my opinion, a true compassionate reason is key to success in any area – without it, you’re setting yourself up for mediocre results He uses excellent quotes from Denis Waitley & others to drive his point home.
2. His discussions on how to lose body fat versus losing weight is covered well in his product manual and he discusses various methods to test body fat including the inexpensive use of calipers for skin fold testing. I personally use the $20 Accu-measure calipers and they work very well.
3. He mentions that dieting isn’t as important as good meal planning and increasing muscle strength to help lose body fat. The combination of these two strategies are key to your long-term success. For more details about Tom’s manual, (Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle), check out his site which as additional details, plus any special offers that might be available.
4. His discussion on the ‘adaption syndrome’ is valuable and an important lesson in getting to the next level of success in your goal to lose body fat. You can also adapt this lesson to help you succeed in many other areas of your life.
What I didn’t like
1. Tom provides tons of valuable information on the subject of weight loss or how to lose body fat, but in the beginning of the product manual, it lacks a detailed plan to help the reader start a program quickly. Given today’s fast paced world, a quick start guide would have been useful.
2. For novice readers, the sections on drinking plenty of water and calorie balance are extremely important, but for readers with this basic knowledge on how to lose body fat, these sections are a bit too elementary.
3. In this product manual, Tom discusses the benefit of timing meals. While this might improve your personal situation, I personally believe the extra effort dedicated to timing is not worth the time & effort put into the timing process. (Or maybe I’m just a bit lazy to go through that much detail to lose the last percentage of body fat.)
Overall
For beginners, this manual (Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle), provides 300+ pages of details that are extensive, easy-to-read and easy-to-implement. If you have some basic knowledge of weight loss or losing body fat, you can still benefit from about 90% of this product manual. There are a great few sections that I’ve never seen before and are very interesting perspectives on how to lose body fat.
If you have the discipline (& can get motivated to take action), then the small price you’ll pay ($39) is worth it. If however, you can’t get motivated to take action by reading an instructional book, then you should consider other multimedia products such as Denise Austin’s Fit Forever , Billy Blanks Tae-Bo, or Winsor Pilates . As mentioned before, be prepared to pay a bit more for these other programs. I’ve followed many of the steps outlined in his instructional product manual and have been pleased with the results. For $39, and with a 3-month money back guarantee – it’s worth the price. Similar to other lengthy instructional manuals, plan to read in small periods of time and keep your pen out to take good notes. Last time I was on his site, he was giving some free bonuses away also, you’ll want to check out his site today before you consider purchasing. End of Product Review.

It is extremely important to keep the swimming pool clean of pathogens and maintain a perfect chemical balance. A wrong chemical balance can cause damage to the pool, and can irritate the eyes and skin.

For safety measures, avoid swimming for an hour after heavy meals. Eating heavy food and then going for a swim in the swimming pool or any other water body can be risky.
