It’s the secret sauce of Pilates practitioners everywhere who call it the  Pilates effect. Step into a Pilates workout and you’ll be forced to lift your abdominals in and up, retract your shoulders and lengthen your neck. By the end of a Pilates class, your spine will elongate, your waist will narrow and your chest will lift up proudly. Your posture undergoes a complete overhaul leaving you looking and feeling longer and taller than you did just one hour earlier.

Pilates helps to build lean muscle, which increases how many calories you burn daily. As a result, your metabolism increases. Pilates may look simple, but the intentional and often tiny movements increase muscle tone and improve functional strength. Pilates helps you to use your deepest muscles, and research has even shown it improves muscle endurance.


A: It's generally recommended that only 5 percent of your daily diet is allocated to carbohydrates because if you consume more than that, your body gets thrown off ketosis. However, this is only for SKD, or the standard ketogenic diet. If you're an athlete or a bodybuilder, you can consume more carbs without affecting ketosis by following a targeted ketogenic diet (TKD) or a cyclic ketogenic diet (CKD).

I bought this DVD several years ago, and for some reason it just sat on the bottom of my stack of exercise DVD's. I work out everyday -- yoga, pilates, strength -- always to DVD's that have become favorites. I was becoming bored with some of the old favorites and decided to try this DVD. WOW! I LOVE it! Different from all my other pilates routines. She really shakes it up with added cardio, and we do some moves that I've not done before. I'm in pretty good shape, but she had my legs and abs shaking on a few moves.

So what makes cycling so special for weight loss? In short, it makes you happy, says Jimmy Weber, of Enid, Oklahoma, who at 6’2” and 260 pounds is not a small rider, but is now 150 pounds lighter than his max weight of 410 pounds eight years ago. He initially shed weight through bariatric surgery and a lot of walking. But walking his usual seven miles a day got boring and running was out of the question.
