Chicken Sausage Recipe and Fat Loss Workouts

Posted by & filed under , .

Eating better does not have to mean plain chicken breast and broccoli. If you are cutting weight for an event and we are talking about dropping from 5% body fat to 4.75%, then you might have to eat bland. For normal people that just need to clean up their diets from junk food, it does […]

Fed Up and Quad Dominance

Posted by & filed under , .

1.      My girlfriend showed me a movie trailer for Fed Up the other day and I found it interesting. On the surface it appears to be a plea against processed, sugar laden foods. A topic that I am all for. The documentary comes out on May 9th and I am interested to see how it […]

Do You Need Supplements?

Posted by & filed under .

I am not the biggest fan of supplements. For me, it comes down to money and I want to get my money’s worth. I have tried protein, creatine, pre workout, thermogenics, amino acids, etc. They have all gotten an honest shot with me. Supplements are supposed to supplement one’s diet, not consist of the entire […]

When will Starvation be Recognized as Bad?

Posted by & filed under .

Weight loss is a tricky thing. It is not the people that need it the most that are seeking it out. People whose lives depend on losing weight and getting fitter should be prescribed exercise instead of medication. For those that could live totally normal lives but want to look better, it gets tricky. This […]

Conversely it is also a component of food. So naturally one leads to the other, right? Nope. It may not make sense to most people but someone really […]

Nutritional Misinformation

Posted by & filed under .

Bad information drives me crazy. It is not surprise to me that fitness and nutrition are pretty much gray lines of confusion with all of the information that is available. When it comes to nutrition, I like to believe that I know more than the average person. I do not say this to make myself […]

You Do Not Need a Special Diet for Success

Posted by & filed under .

Diet fads, trends, and philosophies can be found anywhere. There are books, blogs, communities, and products designed for each one and then some. It almost seems as though nutrition has become a category almost as unregulated as fitness. The job of licensed dietitians and nutritionists is completely undermined when someone can just go online and […]

Eating Before a Training Session

Posted by & filed under .

It never ceases to amaze me what people will eat before they train or perform. From the giant Dunkin Donuts coffees in a commercial gym to a kid telling me that they ate four tacos before coming in to do a speed session, it can get really ugly. Chicken fingers, Wendy’s, and bagels are all […]

I Don’t Like to Count

Posted by & filed under .

There is a lot of information about nutrition that circulates the internet. A lot of it gets pretty technical and incorporates a lot of factors. Personally, the worst part about proper nutrition involves counting and measuring. I truly have no desire to weigh my portion sizes or level off a quarter cup of almonds. I […]
