If you struggle staying on plan sometimes then an accountability buddy could be just what you need. In this article we’ll cover the who, why, when and where of finding someone to help you stay on track during your weight-loss journey.

Most of us are pretty sceptical when we’re presented with too-good-to-be-true quick fixes, so it came as a huge surprise when an article appeared in the New York Times citing scientific research behind just that: a workout that takes 7 minutes to complete and continues to burn fat for up to 72 hours afterwards. It didn’t take long for the 7-Minute Workout to become the hottest new craze in exercise.
