Unfit To Lead? Is Donald Trump The Heaviest US President Of All Time?

The US presidential race is over. On January 20, 2017 President-Elect Donald Trump will be sworn in to the Oval Office and will assume the position as (arguably) the most powerful person on the planet.

Trump has seemingly stunned the entire world with victory. The media never picked this result… His own party probably didn't either. But at the end of the day he obtained the 270 electoral colleges he needed for a result (and some).

The voice of the public was heard.

The minds of aspiring weight losers are often awash with complications of calorie counting, avoidance of macronutrients, or adherence to some form of overly restrictive diet. It’s time for shift in that mindset! The key to maintaining a healthy weight or losing unwanted belly fat could be as simple as balancing your blood sugar levels more efficiently.

The incidence of obesity, diabetes and heart disease has exploded over the past couple of decades. Sugar sweetened beverages have been closely linked to this alarming trend. An estimated 180,000 deaths worldwide are attributed to soft drinks according to a 2013 report by the American Heart Association.

The Three Best Exercises To Reduce Tummy Fat

This morning I was really struggling for motivation. I eventually dragged myself out of bed following two forceful taps on the snooze button, and finally made my way downstairs.

In my basement I have a home gym which consists of a bench, a variety of free weights, a swiss ball and my bike resting on a wind trainer.  The gym is rather light on equipment so it does take a bit of work setting up weights and changing them between exercises.

Today my lack of motivation meant I didn't have the stomach for all that tinkering around. I decided instead to create a super efficient and effective calorie burning workout using just three exercises and a single set of dumbbells.
