5 Ways To Lose 5 Pounds (or more) In 5 Days

I am a very impatient person. When I order something from Amazon I want it on my doorstep that afternoon. When I make up my mind on what I want for dinner, I don’t want to wait for it to be prepared. If I think up a project to start at home, I want it done that weekend, which also means I usually screw something up. I also like to know ways to improve my body in very short periods of time. I’m assuming you ...

5 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight

I have a big, meaty article for you today so I’m going to skip the warm and fuzzies and just get right to it. Some people struggle with their weight loss, and some struggle mightily. It can be confusing as hell.  You think you’re doing all the right things, but the waist isn’t shrinking and the pants aren’t feeling baggy, or the muscles aren’t “popping” the way you thought they would be by now. In my experi ...

The 2 Biggest Mistakes Of Weight Loss

Mistakes… We all make ‘em, although some of us shove our heads in the sand, while kicking our legs like a 2-year old going through a temper tantrum in the grocery store, because we refuse to admit we make mistakes… … Especially with our diets. On the other hand, it’s sometimes difficult to figure out WHAT mistakes you’re making.  You are fed so many different “truths” when it comes to nutrition it’s tough t ...

Jungle Gym XT and Diet Support From Family Q&A Session

So Nolan turned 2 last week, and that really freaked me out. It doesn’t seem like 2 years ago that he graced this world with his presence (too haughty?).  I can still vividly remember everything about that day - how nervous, yet incredibly excited I was to have another child. It’s crazy how fast time goes. One minute you’re holding your newborn, the next you’re chasing him around the house because he has yo ...

How To Start A Diet

Another wild and wooly week on the home front, and another awesome week of interaction with awesome folks like you! No stories this week, not because nothing interesting happened, but my brain isn’t firing on all cylinders, which probably means I need to take a nap. Oh well...nap here I come! But first, this week’s Q&A… Q:  “I need your help with a diet.  I have dieted before, lots of times, but want so ...

Is Breakfast The Biggest Hoax In Weight Loss?

Hey! I spend a lot of time sitting at my desk, which can be a killer on your back, and just boring, so whenever I can I’ll plop myself down on the couch, prop my feet up, and sift through my inbox catching up on my replies, as well as reading the people I subscribe to. Note:  I know sitting on the couch is just as bad, and probably much, much worse, than sitting at a desk, but it does feel like you get to p ...

How To Get Rid Of Your Stomach Fat…FOREVER!

Bright and early this morning I received an interesting question. Well, it wasn’t too bright, it was actually quite dark, but still early...too damn early. My client asked, “Ed, what can I eat to get rid of this stomach fat?” He was also grabbing big hunks of fat with both hands and shaking it, as if I didn’t know he, in fact, had a pillow sitting on top of his abs. The question wasn’t odd, or even one that ...

Diet Books and Essential Fatty Acids

Imagine it’s 15 years ago and you’re hanging out with me on the last few days of my illustrious high school career… A high school career littered with athletic mediocrity, although a huge hunger for learning the ins and outs of workouts and a true love and passion for training; and maybe a few mishaps and run ins with areas we’ll leave unmentioned (although most...most...were fun ;) ). You’ll also discover ...
