    Is Supplementing Right For You?

    Is Supplementing Right For You? Everywhere you look, there is someone talking about the supplements they are taking. Protein powder…fish oil…fat burners… There is something out there for every goal you have. But do you need to use supplements to reach your goals? Not necessarily…but they may help. Let’s take a look at what supplements are—and then decide if they’re right for you. Supplements are simply a way to “supplement” your diet, to ensure you’re getting all the nutrients you need.

  • Quality vs. Quantity

    You’ve probably heard the old saying, “a calorie is a calorie.”
    But is this really true? Are all calories the same? Unfortunately, a calorie is not always a calorie. We can all agree that drinking 1,200 calories in juice and soda is a lot different than eating 1,200 calories of high-quality protein, healthy fats, and fiber-rich carbs. This is why you need to know one thing: Even though the amount of calories you’re eating is important…
    …the quality of those calories is a lot more important. For example, if you’re looking for weight loss, eating more high-quality foods (like good quality protein, healthy fats, minimally ....

    The Right Diet For You

    Researching The Right Diet For You
    If you were to Google “diet tips,” do you have any idea how many results you would get? Millions—billions even. And each topic may have conflicting advice. One might tell you low-carb is the best diet to follow—while another site says it will ruin your performance. Or how one will tell you fat is evil—while another will tell you exactly why you need to eat MORE fat. No wonder why people are confused! But…there is one key takeaway you do need to know: Dieting is 80% of the battle. You simply can't “out exercise a bad diet”. The better your diet is, the more success you’re going to ....

  • Exercise of the Month

    Exercise of the Month

    Each month, I am going to highlight one exercise—or a group of exercises---that I think will benefit you in your quest to become leaner, stronger, and fitter. It may target a particular section of your body (think butt, hips, abs, etc.), and are all designed to get that area tighter…toner…and stronger. This month, I am going to highlight a combination exercise that targets your ENTIRE body—all in one motion. It’s called the Squat Thruster (or the squat into dumbbell press)—and it’s a killer for your butt, shoulders, and core. Actually…it’s more of a full body exercise than anything else. If you’re looking to ....

Or you may be like me, and not have much of an appetite first thing in the morning. Well guess what? You’re not alone. There are so many people who struggle with eating breakfast… …and it could be preventing them from achieving what they want from their diet plans. If you ....
