Not all burgers are created equal...

That's important, especially when you consider that the average guy will consume 100 of them this year.

The way you pick your favorite fixes—from burgers to banana splits—could help you make the transition from chubby to chiseled.

Take America's two most famous burgers: the Whopper with Cheese and the Big Mac. A fair fight, right? Well, if you go for the Arch alternative, you'll save 220 calories over the BK behemoth. Use that strategy for every burger you eat in 2009, and you'll save 22,000 calories—the equivalent of almost 10 pounds of body fat.

The most effective weight-loss strategy doesn't require you to abandon the foods you love but simply to make better choices when selecting them. Do that and you'll trade failed diets and wild weight fluctuations for healthy eating patterns and a lean, new you. And once you learn how it's done, you can stay that way forever. Who wouldn't make that swap?

For Fat Loss and Health, Change The Cycle...

Why should the frequency, intensity, and duration of your cardiovascular workouts stay the same? They should not, especially if your goal is fat loss and health.

When you're trying to get trim and lean, increase your cardio training to two to four times a week, to help strip away remove body fat.

Alternate your cardio methods so your workout's not so boring -- treadmill running one day, elliptical training or rowing the next, cycling the day after that, etc

You want to keep your interest level up and your body guessing to see fat loss!

Myth about Fat Loss and High-fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)

In 2002, University of California at Davis researchers published a well-publicized paper noting that Americans' increasing consumption of fructose, including that in HFCS, paralleled our skyrocketing rates of obesity.

What science really really found was that both HFCS and sucrose, better known as table sugar, contain similar amounts of fructose. Sucrose is almost chemically identical, containing 50 percent fructose. The truth is, there's no evidence to show any differences in these two types of sugar. Both will cause weight gain when consumed in excess, not good for fat loss.

The bottom line: For fat loss, HFCS and regular sugar are empty-calorie carbohydrates that should be consumed in limited amounts. How? By keeping soft drinks, sweetened fruit juices, and prepackaged desserts to a minimum.
