  • Taking Care of Nutrition – Step 9

    I hope you’ve been able to use some of the steps I’ve blogged about to make some changes in your life. Remember to take each step one a step at a time and not to implement everything at once. Over the last couple of months you should have seen some dramatic changes if you followed […]

  • Taking Care of Nutrition – Step 8

    The Math There is a little mathematical calculation I like to call upon when it comes to weekends. The calculation is 5 – 2 = 0. This means that five good days of eating through the week minus two days of poor eating on the weekend, will equal zero results. The Math Explained During the […]

  • Fitness is about Health not Cosmetics

    The featured image is a picture of me from fourteen years ago. What you might see on the outside as a well defined and moderately muscled body, doesn’t speak to what’s inside. I was at my heaviest (240 lbs) two years after this picture was taken (and I wasn’t doing so great six months before […]

  • Taking Care of Nutrition – Step 5

    I hope you’re still with me and making the weekly changes that I’ve suggested. Take it as a personal challenge to see how many weeks you can keep it up. The only way you fail is if you don’t try. If your goal is to lose weight but you haven’t been able to follow the […]

  • Taking Care of Nutrition – Step 4

    You spent a week putting your goals together. Then you spent a week drinking lots of water and finally included a lot of required sleep. Right? If you haven’t mastered those steps hopefully you are still working on it. In step 4 we are going to focus on accountability. I’m sure you’ve heard all these […]

  • Ninja Coffee Bar

    Caffeine is a hot topic and recently more approved than not by fitness and nutrition professionals. Until I had kids, I hadn’t drank a single coffee. I believed it was a diuretic (which it is) and should be avoided (which it doesn’t have to be). That all changed for me when I discovered what being […]

  • Taking Care of Nutrition – Step 3

    How is it coming so far? I hope the first two tips were useful. To recap, your first objective was to write your goals down and put them in places that would prevent you from making destructive decisions (as far as your goals are concerned). The second step was to drink more water. If you […]

  • Dads Super Awesome Stew

    I made this stew for dinner yesterday. I have since called this stew (of which I have made it in several variations) Dad’s Super Awesome Stew. But the stew isn’t really the point of why I’m writing this. The point is that I have very little idea of what actually went into it. That’s why […]

  • Taking Care of Nutrition – Step 2

    I’m going to assume you’ve already read Step 1 and have implemented it. That means you have your goals on a list and those goals are located in two places you need them the most (recommended in the kitchen and in your car). If you haven’t done this yet you should go back and do […]

  • Taking Care of Nutrition – Step 1

    It’s not easy to make lifestyle choices that will turn you into an elite athlete. By elite, I’m referring to anyone that eats right, trains hard consistently for at least a few years and competes for consistent podium finishes (or medals). In my eyes you don’t have to be at the top of your game […]

In truth, I believe if it’s getting people off the couch and fit, that’s great. What I’m discussing below is the most optimal way I believe you can train to become the best […]

  • Avocado – Nature’s Super Food

    There’s a lot of controversy in nutrition but the one thing the majority of nutritionists and eating programs include is Avocado. For all the people that say they don’t have time for a proper snack and need to eat a cookie or a pastry, here is a snack you can prepare in roughly 8 seconds. […]

  • You can’t out-train poor nutrition

    No matter how hard you train in your workouts, you can’t out-train eating poorly. There are some people who are genetically better suited to look okay when they eat poorly while training, but their bodies are still getting damaged. Their insulin levels are still altering their blood sugar and diabetes is still a big threat […]

  • The Variability of Breakfast

    What does breakfast mean to you? Do you skip it like most people? Or do you get after it from the moment you wake up? My personal preference is to fuel my body from the moment I wake up. But depending on my plan for the morning, not all breakfast is created equal. Since people […]
