Do you want to lose 10, 30, 50 or more pounds? Have you recently reached your weight loss goal but want to maintain it? Are you willing to dedicate yourself to a healthy lifestyle? Then this blog is for you!
I have lost 118 pounds and have maintained the weight loss for two years. One of the things I have learned during the weight loss process is that it is much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals to support you in the process (whether they be in person or online).
I also have learned that learning as much as possible about healthy living gives you the knowledge and expertise needed to lose weight the “right” way. So this blog includes regular posts, a book list, website list, TV list, video list and book and website of the month. In addition, there is a recipe of the month and product review section. Visitors to Weight Loss Aficionado can just enjoy the site for informational purposes or can comment on posts, ask questions, share resources, their triumphs and pitfalls during the weight loss process.

Below see an episode of the "Tyra Banks Show" where the audience member who tried it on the show lost one pound in 10 minutes! It was also on "The Doctors" where they stated 10 minutes of using the machine is like an hour run. Although in my opinion this should not replace your exercise regimen it may be a great addition to it!

Here are some more videos on air yoga. It seems air yoga goes by many names including air yoga, anti gravity yoga, aerial yoga and cocoon yoga. In this video they call it anti gravity cocooning.
And, in this video they call it anti-gravity aerial yoga.
The more I read and watch about air yoga the more excited I get about trying it!

I have only read the first two chapters but have to say it is the funniest book I have ever read! I usually bring the book with me to the gym to read while I am on the elliptical or treadmill. I laugh so much while reading the book, that people come up to me to ask me what I'm reading.
The book teaches you about healthy living but also the crazy ways people work towards creating bodily perfection. For example in the first two chapters I learned about the caveman (Paleo) movement where people live like and work out as cavemen lived. I also learned about the calorie restriction movement where people believe if you live on the edge of starvation you will increase your lifespan!
Below is an interview with A.J. Jacobs about his book:
Download or pick up this book from your local bookstore! It is a must read!
