The one thing I love when it comes to talking about health and wellness is the enormous amount of uncharted territory there is to explore around these topics. A few days ago, I was asked to speak to a large group of folks who were in town for a conference. At the end of the talk, I was asked a lot of really good questions.

It is one of the more common obstacles to body composition, conditioning and physical fitness progress. We need to break this down into two areas.

The second area involves diets and dieting where plateaus are so common, it adds to the very high percentages of failed diet plans.
