Guys, we don’t care, really

Too many guys in the gym are not satisfied with their physique unless they’re sporting a ripped 8-pack. If your abs are relatively flat, stop being insecure. You don’t need to be competition-ready 24-7. Women want a respectful, generous, responsible, confidant, caring person, not a G.I. Joe doll.

“The Every Other Day Diet” review

A diet where you limit calories to 500 every other day has shown to promote fat loss (1). The downside…you’re only eating 500 calories and you’re supposed to sustain this for life! In addition to being cranky, starving, and resorting to filling up your stomach with excessive amounts of water, expect to lose 10% of […]

You CAN be a healthy diabetic

What’s harder: exercise or diet?

People are more likely to exercise and less inclined to change their diet to lose weight, yet the most effective way to decrease body fat is to modify what we are eating. Many people have an emotional connection to food and associate it with happy times, social events, and a way to escape life’s stressors. […]

Tell the truth…we know why you’re fat

I’ve had so many overweight people tell me they eat healthy that it’s now a trend, but just because you eat chia seeds, flax seeds and drink fruit smoothies, that doesn’t mean you eat healthy. If your vegetables are coated in a batter and fried, you should have not eaten it at all because now […]
