Most of Meri’s articles are about how to find a healthy balance with nutrition. Here’s one of hers that I liked: Are You Losing Body Fat or Water?

I really can’t recall if I was surfing our own articles for articles about BodyFat or whether I learned about Meri from another source and then realized she was already an expert author in our site.

From an Article Marketing standpoint, her articles are short (around 700 words or so), clean (no abuse of the Bold/Italics/Under font tags), written from a point of true expertise, and with a clean resource box at the end that does a call to action. Bravo!

…And in the meantime, I’ll be taking some of Meri’s advice about thinking in terms of 3500 calories = 1 pound of fat…which means I need to track and ensure that I accomplish a daily calorie deficit that leads me to the 182 lbs goal I have for myself (I’m at 193 today, 6’1″ tall). It wasn’t enough for me to just drop the 6-7% bodyfat I lost this Summer (which is the true measure of whether I’m reaching my fitness goals), but I want my 34″ waist line back too…which requires the 182lbs goal. :-)

Ok, enough about me…now, go read Meri Raffetto‘s articles.
