But, did you know that the foods you consume before and after you exercise have a significant effect on your workout? Yes, the type of activity, the number of repetitions, the intensity of effort and the duration of exercise all play a part in the results that...

Well, summer is here and there are still many who have not shed the pounds they gained over the holidays and cold winter months.
