    A barre video would be great! And maybe some floor work I'm place, adagios, etc. but my favorite would definitely be HOUSE! With a little Latin flair perhaps? :) an actual dance video would be fun too like a Broadway jazz workout?

    healthguru91 asked the Question: How do yogi's stay so thin and lean?

    I don't understand how yogi's, like Briohny Smyth, or others who do a lot of yoga stay so thin and lean! I can do a ton of cardio, plus yoga, and eat absolutely no dairy, gluten, soy, and very little sugar and starchy carbs and still can't get lean or thin! Is there something I'm missing? I'm pretty much willing to make any lifestyle change necessary since I'm already ultra health nutty and loving it but I want to get lean as my last goal. I tend to bulk up quickly and easily without shedding fat, which is my other problem. I get really big tricep muscles from weight lifting yet I don't lose any fat on the back of my arms so I look square. That's pretty much the same story for the rest of my body too. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Maybe I'm eating too much? Or too many calories? Or whatever else may come to mind?

    healthguru91 asked the Question: Reasons for fat gain after losing it?

    I lost a noticeable amount of fat from my abdomen and "muffin top"
    area, as well as my hips, the entire circumference of my thighs, and the back of my arms. Basically, all the commonly frustrating areas. But I've gained back some of it and I look out of shape again and sorta flabby. I was looking lean and athletic before! And I haven't changed my diet aside from adding gluten free oats every once and a while.
    I'm already off of the evil six because of food allergies and I did decreased exercise to one-two times a day.
    I don't have time for inferno EVERY day. Sometimes
    I need yoga or DB15 because I don't have time to shower constantly.
    Are there any other reasons for this weight gain? It literally happened in two weeks.
    Quite frustrating! Thanks!

    I do! Does the amount of calories burned make a difference in fat loss? I'm a dancer and I prefer your dance workouts but Inferno burns more calories. Is it just calories that matter for fat loss or does the type of workout itself make a difference as well, regardless of the calorie difference? Thanks! :)

    Martial arts is, in my opinion, one of the best physical training techniques I have ever employed. The combination of principles similar to yoga for health and well being, plus the cardio, muscle control, and discipline make for the BEST workout you'll ever experience. It would be so great to have kung fu on here!

    A house workout would be AMAZING! I'm a dancer from the Bay Area and I've experienced some really great housing and waacking workshops over here. I think house would burn the most calories, especially latin house!! :)

    healthguru91 asked the Question: Are Acai bowls healthy or fattening?

    I just had my first acai bowl today and totally fell in love. But it did seem like it was very high in sugar despite being whole, natural fruit. To be more specific, it was acai puree, a basic, flax granola,
    chopped strawberries and banana topped with a big scoop of peanut butter and coconut flakes.

    I am mostly on Ignite with occasional exceptions. I'm already allergic to gluten and dairy, and I'm really into health so I don't eat any added sugars or artificial sweeteners in the first place. The only difference is that I eat more carbs. Not a lot. But maybe small amounts three times a day. Quinoa, brown rice, oats. And I eat about 1600-1700 calories a day.

    You have definitely helped out a lot! Just as a last curiosity, which yoga workout, or style, would you say would be the best for me to start focusing on? I've been doing yoga for years now but on and off so intermediate to hard won't be too difficult. Are the yoga workouts on here good enough or is there another I should venture out and discover? :)

    Great! Thank you! I love all three of them, they are great instructors. But can yoga really melt the fat away the same way intense cardio can? I know it's probably a healthy balance of both but I'd like to focus the most on what will get me to where I want the fastest. Any workout plan suggestions? Coupling cardio and yoga at different times of the day perhaps? Thanks again!

    Hi all! I've been doing daily burn for a few months now and have been getting great results. I pretty much do every workout, from Inferno to Yoga and everything in between. But lately, I feel like I've been looking a bit bulky and square. I am half Asian and was naturally lean and long before I gained about twenty pounds but now I seem to be retaining fat in my inner thighs and around my waist, and looking bulky and too athletic. How do, for instance, Martial Artists and yogi's stay so lean and long? I'd rather look like that than super muscular or square. I eat carbs multiple times a day but in small, gluten free amounts. I don't need to change my diet seeing as I don't eat the evil six at all.

    And just to clarify, I understand that certain body types are shorter or stalkier than others and can't be long and lean but I'm 5' 7", small/medium boned, and come from a family of thin Scandinavians and Asians who are mostly mesomorphs. Something's wrong! Lol
    Thanks!

    I guess my question is, if I were to do one or two workouts on Dailyburn, which would be the most bang for my buck? Is it better to combine, for instance, a HIIT workout and then follow with a hatha yoga? Or should I just go for Inferno Intervals and skip the others altogether? Yet another question, are calories burnt just calories burnt? Or is there a more effective way to burn 500 calories like hatha yoga vs. HIIT or intense cardio/weights? These questions might be ridiculous but I'm trying to narrow down what exercise reacts best with my body. Thanks for the help!

    Hi everyone! So, I'm happy to report that I've lost twelve pounds since April and I have about ten more to go. But I feel like I've hit a roadblock. I've done Inferno, Yoga, Move!, and some of the other workouts individually but I'm just not burning the fat anymore. I'm in the balance phase and nothing has really changed since Ignite since I already have a ton of food allergies to begin with but I am eating starchy carbs more often; brown rice, gluten free oats, corn, potatoes, etc. but only in small amounts two-three times a day. I don't think cutting out carbs entirely or just once a day would be a good idea! I get tired and fatigued easily and I feel that I am eating healthy and clean enough as it is so what should I do to jump start my weight loss again?? I always gain muscle five times faster than losing the fat so I end up looking bulky instead of lean. I want to look the way I looked back when I did martial arts! Lean and longgg, please help! Thanks!
