Hey hey! I’ve been thinking about doing something a bit differently lately... I know that can be scary, but this is going to be fun. Every Monday, for the next 10-12 weeks, I am going to share a Challenge with you. Some weeks may be nutrition related, others may be exercise/workout related and some may be more ‘mental.’ I’ve been in this game for quite some time and I know Monday is usually the day when peo ...

I have another assignment for you in the diet department and I’m going to ask you to add a few foods to your daily diet, rather than going negative and asking you to remove certain foods. I have a general philosophy that it’s easier to succeed, not only in the short-term, but the long-term as well, if you switch your focus from removing negative foods and behaviors to adding good foods and behaviors.

Is It Worth It To Buy Organic Food and Other Diet and Workout Questions

Another week and another round of email questions! I have some good ones for you this week, so I’ll cut the chit-chat and get on with the show! I also have to be honest...the one that asks "Is it worth it to buy organic food?" was actually phrased a bit more, shall we say, crass?  I'm protecting the identity of my client that asked, but during our conversation she said she was freaked at the thought of her ...

I have a weird and goofy thing I want you to do this week.  It's a nutrition assignment, but that's not the weird part.  The goofy part is what I actually want you to do within the diet assignment.

3 Healthy High Fat Foods To Eat Regularly?

Do you eat fat? I know the common thought is to cut out fat if you want to lose fat (makes sense in the noggin), even in this day and age where more and more folks are telling you there are healthy high fat foods.

Q&A – How To Make Weight Loss Stick and Workout Videos

It’s Saturday and you know what that means? Oh, you don’t?  Well in my house it means…it’s Saturday. I know I’m a boring dude, but we have a 5-year old and 10-month old and it’s January in Nebraska.  Not exactly conducive to living an exciting life!

3 Post Workout Snacks To Maximize Fat Loss

Do you typically eat post workout snacks? If not, you should seriously consider it. Why?  Because after your workout, your body is literally screaming for nutrition.  Okay, maybe not “literally screaming,” but if your muscles somehow attained the ability to speak they would politely tell you, in the most gentile English accent, that they would really enjoy some nourishment so that they may replenish their e ...
