A workout partner can be a great motivating factor to keeping up a regular schedule hear at the gym. Knowing that someone else will be here waiting for you can be a great motivator when you just can't seem to get moving. Here are a few qualities to look for in the perfect workout partner.
Similar schedule - A good workout partner must be available to workout at your selected time. Always struggling to meet up for a workout is just another barrier to getting to the gym. It's far simpler to try to find someone whose schedule fits yours.
Reliability - It goes without saying that reliability is essential in a workout partner. Someone who misses more workouts than you will not exactly be a great motivator to get out the door.
Personality - The perfect partner for the mild-mannered cubicle dweller may not be the clown pants wearing, do rag loving, obscenity screaming, muscle guy. Try to find someone who matches you workout style, whatever that may be...unless your workout style is 5 minutes of reading a magazine while sitting on the recumbent bike followed by a trip to Cold Stone Creamery to reward yourself. If that is the case, maybe you could use a few workouts with muscle guy!
Similar goals - It is easier to make progress if you have someone to workout with who is trying to achieve similar goals. A runner who lifts weights occasionally probably would not be a good workout partner for a powerlifter interested in deadlifting at his or her maximum capacity.
Similar fitness level - While not a necessity, similar fitness level will allow workout partners to push each other, but not overdo it.
Take this advice...if you find someone who meets all of these criteria, hang on to them for as long as you can. A great partner is priceless. If you are looking for a partner, but don't know where to begin, there are lots of online forums and chat centers with other people looking for YOU to be THEIR workout partner. Even ask someone at your current gym.
Most people associate eggs (with yolk) with high cholesterol. But according to a study in the Journal of Nutrition, this breakfast favorite actually increases good (HDL) cholesterol, not bad (LDL) cholesterol. Plus, one study found that overweight people who ate a breakfast of two eggs with yolk instead of a bagel 5 days a week for 8 weeks reported higher energy levels and lost 65 percent more weight.
A frequently abused claim with no formal definition, this appears most often in the cereal aisle, and many of the boxes it adorns are actually loaded with various sweeteners. Need proof? Look at Kellogg’s Smart Start. It claims to be “lightly sweetened,” yet it has more sugar per cup than a full serving of Oreo cookies!

Basically, what we have here is a big wad of pizza dough hollowed out and stuffed with noodles, cream, and cheese. That’s why half of these calories come from refined carbohydrates and another third come from fat. This leaves little room for healthy nutrients such as protein and fiber. Three slices of pizza with chicken, peppers, and parmesan cheese will give you the same basic flavor profile while saving you more than 900 calories.
