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 ...

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.
