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. Although sometimes defined
as "an electronic version of a printed book", 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. At the
start of 2012 in the U.S., more e-books were published online than were distributed
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. With e-books, "[e]lectronic bookmarks
make referencing easier, and e-book readers may allow the user to annotate
pages."  "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. 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.

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.
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.
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 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.
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.
