Today I talk about the book Prevention's 3-2-1 weight loss plan by Joy Bauer. It outlines a circuit training program that involves 3 minutes of cardio, 2 minutes of strength training, and 1 minute of working on your abs. While it is geared towards women, it had some interesting tips on stopping emotional eating and more.

Also there are some interesting “games” for fitness for the Ninendo Wii and Nintendo DS that are geared towards having fun and losing weight.
