Amazon's Kindle Keyboard e-reader displaying a page of an e-book
An electronic book (or e-book or eBook) is a book publication made available in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on the flat-panel display of computers or other electronic devices.[1] Although sometimes defined as "an electronic version of a printed book",[2] some e-books exist without a printed equivalent. E-books can be read on dedicated e-reader devices, but also on any computer device that features a controllable viewing screen, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.

In the 2000s, there was a trend of print and e-book sales moving to the Internet[citation needed], where readers buy traditional paper books and e-books on websites using e-commerce systems. With print books, readers are increasingly browsing through images of the covers of books on publisher or bookstore websites and selecting and ordering titles online; the paper books are then delivered to the reader by mail or another delivery service. With e-books, users can browse through titles online, and then when they select and order titles, the e-book can be sent to them online or the user can download the e-book.[3] At the start of 2012 in the U.S., more e-books were published online than were distributed in hardcover.[4]

The main reasons for people buying e-books online are possibly lower prices, increased comfort (as they can buy from home or on the go with mobile devices) and a larger selection of titles.[5] With e-books, "[e]lectronic bookmarks make referencing easier, and e-book readers may allow the user to annotate pages." [6] "Although fiction and non-fiction books come in e-book formats, technical material is especially suited for e-book delivery because it can be [electronically] searched" for keywords. In addition, for programming books, code examples can be copied.[6] The amount of e-book reading is increasing in the U.S.; by 2014, 28% of adults had read an e-book, compared to 23% in 2013. This is increasing, because by 2014 50% of American adults had an e-reader or a tablet, compared to 30% owning such devices in 2013.[7]

The Secret to Flat Abs

In order to be successful at thinning your waistline you must have a basic understanding of how the abdominal muscles function and how your body burns fat. If your goal is to have a nice flat stomach, the first step you need to do is decrease / eliminate the layers of fat that are on top of your abs. The most effective way of flattening your stomach is a combination of strength training, cardiovascular exercise, and stable blood sugar.

Getting to a Healthy Weight

Your healthy body weight is that weight at which you are strong and healthy. The slower you lose weight, the more likely you are losing fat and not muscle. If you have a high level of body fat, or you have never been able to successfully lose fat, you should consider trying a program that not only focuses on dieting, but also includes adequate cardiovascular activity and weight training. The best way to get ripped and maintain as much muscle as you can is to diet slowly. Losing a little or a lot of fat involves pretty much the same concept - adequate nutrition coupled with cardiovascular exercise and weight training.

Turning Fat into Muscl

Knowing your body composition can help you formulate an exercise program and set sensible fitness goals. Resolving to turn fat into muscle (and not simply to lose weight) motivates you to work on fat-burning aerobic activities and anaerobic muscle-building activities as well. Either way, you are changing your overall body composition from less fat to more muscle. Diet is just as much a part of fitness as exercise, and what you eat will affect every aspect of your workout. A proper diet also influences the results of your fitness plan, since it helps build muscle and decrease the percentage of fat in your overall body weight.

High Intensity Cardio Training

High intensity cardio training is a superior method of fat loss due to its effect on post workout metabolic rate. If the primary purpose of the cardio training program is weight loss, then regimens of greater frequency and duration of training and moderate intensity are recommended. If the goal is maximum fat loss, then higher frequency and duration are recommended.

The Natural Way to Lose Weight

Stay active and exercise regularly. Sixty minutes a day is ideal, but everything (even climbing stairs and walking to school or work) counts. Aerobic and strengthening exercises can result is weight loss when combined with a calorie-reducing diet. Without exercise, dieting can cause the loss of muscle as well as fat. An aerobic exercise regimen burns fat, while building muscle. This may mean less dramatic weight loss, but since muscle tissue burns more calories than fat tissue, the result is longer lasting. Consistent, regular exercise actually strengthens the heart, resulting in more blood and oxygen flow throughout the body. A fitness regimen offers many psychological benefits, but the biggest payoff comes from an improved self image. Achieving fitness goals leads to self confidence, improved body image, self awareness and esteem.
