So its October. Its getting closer to the holidays and Holloween. You know there will be a lot of candy between the months of October to January. And you figure well why not endulge. Im in excellent shape. My weight is where it should be. But is it really? Here is how you can determine how much muscle you have in comparison to your body fat. I am going to use mine as an example in this equation. Step 1 Weigh yourself with a body fat scale. The scale will automatically calculate your percentage of body fat. Mine is 23% Step 2 Subtract your body fat percentage from 100 to get your lean mass percentage. Here is an example: 100 -- 23 percent body fat = 77 percent lean mass. Step 3 Divide your lean mass percent by 100 to calculate the decimal for your lean mass percent. Here is an example: 100 / 77 - .77 Step 4 Multiply your lean mass decimal by your total body weight to calculate your lean mass weight. multiply 118 by .77 for 90.86 lbs. of lean mass.

Now I know it says weigh yourself with a body fat scale so it will automatically calculate your percentage of body fat but if you dont have one I have taken the liberty of finding some calculators on line that will help you determine your percentage of body fat. This one is pretty good. Ive actually used this one and like it. This one is said to messure your fitness according to navy standards. This one is another standard bmi calculator. There are plenty more out there. Those are just a few I've listed to help out. By filling in the blanks with your measurements and weight and whether you are a male or female it will calculate your percentage and with that you can plug that percentage into the equation above and determine your muscle to body fat average. And keep in mind if you are a work out buff it is ok to have a cheat day and a rest day. As a matter of fact it is encouraged to give your body a chance to recooperate. Or if youre a dieter just eat in moderation and exercise. There is no need to starve yourself. That will cause you to gain more weight. Plug in your percentage of body fat and see where you stand. Set a goal for your self and achieve it. Be motivated. Get healthy. Take care of yourself and most importantly enjoy your life.


Create a Spectacular Flaming Meteor Effect on Text Take typography one step further by having text falling from the sky in a burning inferno. Yes, this is the text-on-fire tutorial to end all tutorials. It uses a little Illustrator for the text and a lot of Photoshop to burn up the screen! You can’t have smoke without a fire somewhere. So in this tutorial, I will show you how to create a fire effect similar to when a spaceship or comet enters the earth’s atmosphere. It’s always a good idea to keep your eyes open for inspiration for effects and designs no matter what you are doing. Graphics are everywhere and you can learn a Step 1 First create a new document and fill it with a dark grey.

Step 2 Create a new layer, call it “Clouds,” and using the Lasso Tool (L), make a selection similar to the one I’ve shown below. Set your background color to a 50% grey and the foreground to a dark grey. Go to Filter > Render > Clouds and, holding the Alt key, create clouds. After that go to Images > Adjustments > Levels, and change the input levels and output levels until you make the clouds neither too dark nor too light (see the image shown). This layer will be on top of the others.

Step 3 Create another layer and repeat Step 2, but this time just change the background color from 50% gray to a blue or green color. This will create a small cloud, lighter than the big one.

Step 4 Now we’ll switch to Adobe Illustrator to create some text, but you can also create text in photoshop. I used Times New Roman for the font. After that go to Effect > 3D > Extrude and Bevel. Now we will create the 3D text. Rotate the object and change the perspective. You can use the same values as I did (shown below).

Step 5 Copy the 3D text and paste it in Photoshop. 2. Place it in the center and add some Noise (Filter > Noise > Add Noise). 3. Now let’s change the Layer Style. First add Bevel and Emboss. After that, let’s add a Gradient Overlay. 1.

Step 6 Duplicate the Type layer and add a Motion Blur (Filter > Blur > Motion Blur). 2. Set the angle of the blur to -53. 3. Change the layer mode to Linear Dodge (Add). Create a Folder, call it “Typo,” and move these two layers into it. 1.

Step 7 Create a new layer and repeat the Step 2, this time using a selection as shown going out the back of the letter T. This will create the trailing smoke.

Step 8 Creating the FIRE 1 – Create a new layer and call it “fire1.” 2 – With the Elliptical Marquee Tool (M), create a selection. 3 – Set the background color to light grey and the background to black. 4 – Create clouds as we did in Step 2. 5 – Change the Levels to increase the contrast; 6 – Change the Hue/Saturation with Colorize selected until you get an orange/ yellow color.

Step 9 Create a new layer, call it “blazes,” and repeat Step 8. After that, duplicate the layer and call it “flames.” Create a folder and move the Fire1, Blazes, and Flames layers to this folder and call the whole folder “Fire.” It will be on top of the Typo layer.

Step 10 Select the layer “blazes” and go to Filter > Liquefy. There select the Turbulence Tool (T). Now, on the edges of the fire, start creating some blazes. Use it like you would the smudge tool.

Set 11 After the Liquefy, go to Edit > Transform > Warp and change the blaze’s form to something similar to the image below. After that apply Filter > Sharpen > Sharp.

Step 12 Create a new layer and call it “yellow color.” 2. Create an ellipse selection with 30px feather and fill it with white. After that edit the Layer Style and apply a Color Overlay using an yellow color and Multiply for the layer’s blend mode. 1.

Step 13 The order and the Blend modes for the fire are: Flames: Lighter Color 2. Blazes: Normal 3. Fire1: Lighten Yellow Color: Multiply 1.

Step 14 Sparks For the sparks we will use brushes. Create a folder and call it “Sparks.” It will be on top of the Fire folder. Inside the folder, add a new layer. 2. Fill it with black and change the Blend Mode to Color Dodge. 3. Select the Brush Tool and let’s create a brush. 4. In Brush Tip Shape, change the Diameter to 12, and increase the spacing. 5. Select Scattering and set Scatter to the 1000% and Control to off. Change the Count to 2 and Count Jitter to 100%. Select white and start painting some sparks. 1.

Step 15 Create a new layer and repeat the Step 14 but now change the Scatter Option to 0%. Start creating some single line sparks like swirls.

Step 16 Here I used the Gomedia Spraypaint brushes to create those tiny little sparks, but you can repeat the step 14 changing the Brush size only. Basically, create a new layer, put it behind the others, fill it with black, change the Blend Mode to Color Dodge, see the color to white, and create the sparks.


Although it looks complicated, the process is actually very straightforward. I used only three or four filters, brushes, and of course, the Layer Styles. One thing I have to say is that it’s impossible to create exactly the same fire twice, and that’s because the filter that renders the clouds does so randomly. As always, the idea is to play around with Photoshop to get your own unique results. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
