  • Which Body Would You Prefer?

    Which Body Would You Prefer?

    When many people look to make aesthetic fitness changes to transform their body and both look and feel good are they matching the program to their preferred body they want to achieve? Before we get into the science behind the game planning to achieve your desired results, I believe it sometimes better to start with the end in mind. Look at the distance runner and the sprinter. We can argue that both are fit; however, when it comes to being shaped and tone you can see how the sprinter’s body is more defined, lean, shaped and tone. My purpose of this article isn’t to tell you which body you should prefer; rather explain the training differences so you have a ....

  • Starvation Mode De-bunked by “Naked and Afraid”

    Starvation Mode De-bunked by “Naked and Afraid”

    How TV series proves if you are not losing weight it isn’t because you are not eating enough.

    If the Starvation Mode theory is true and holding back people from losing weight, how come it didn’t help Duke from his 21-day experience on Naked and Afraid? Duke lost 26 lbs. while on Naked and Afraid. By day 20 it was reported that he and his partner of the show had a combined intake of 100 calories. They then were fortunate to find a snake to eat prior to extraction day on Day 21. Considering nutrition of a raw snake (they did cook it) is about 93 calories per 100 grams (3.5 ounces) at best I would guess he was able to consume an additional 500 calories to give him a ....

  • Old story but still makes good point about losing weight

    I understand people sometime struggle or want to fight the concept that to lose weight it is calories in versus calories out. One pound equals 3,500 calories and once you can create a net 3,500 caloric deficit you lose a pound regardless what you eat. To help you better comprehend this, check out the “ Twinkies ” diet a nutrition professor did to lose 27 lbs in 10 weeks that I cut and paste below. Again, the point of re-circulation of this article isn’t to endorse this diet filled with empty calories, rather to validate when it comes to losing weight, you got know to how many calories you are eating and if you can afford it or not based on how much you are ....

  • What about an eggnog and Christmas cookie diet?

    "I lost 27 lbs in two months!" When most people think “diet,” they think of eating fruits, veggies and lean protein. But Mark Haub tried something different. The professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University put himself on a “convenience store diet” made up of things like Twinkies, Doritos, Oreos and sugary cereals. I know what you are thinking, this has nothing to do with eggnog and Christmas cookies. However, in essence, they are both the same in that they are calorie dense, low nutrient, high processed sugar, and saturated fats food. So, I figured with holiday parties in full swing, what better way to grab your attention than with a diet of ....

  • Secret to Weight Loss…The Hours You Are Not Exercising.

  • 5 Steps to Not Waste Money When You Buy Supplements

    5 steps to not waste $ when you buy
    Anytime discussing supplementation, we believe it is critical to start with this fundamental DISCLAIMER regarding the use of supplements: Basic definition of a supplement is “In addition to”. Therefore there is NO magic pill. Supplements are only good when they support an existing properly designed and executed nutritional and exercise program. It is impossible for us or anyone for that matter to know all the products out there to properly judge/evaluate its purity
    . With that said, it is easier to follow a guideline to eliminate the lesser quality products. Manufactures can list anything on a ....
