Get my thoughts here: How Using a Scale May Help You Avoid Weight Gain During Vacation published in Healthline. The Journal of Obesity Medicine writes: “Research suggests adults often gain between 0.4 and 0.9 kilograms (or about one to two […]

Summer is coming…

August 29, 2018

Summer is almost upon us, and with it, the slew of magazines chock full of pre-summer workouts and diets promising the “perfect beach body in 6 weeks or less” are everywhere I look. Per usual the models used to tout these diets etc. are ALREADY perfectly lean, tanned and muscled. I don’t know about you […]

Happy New Year

August 29, 2018

Well, it’s almost 2019. On the brink of a brand new year, I want to share an experience I’ve been dealing with for the majority of 2018. Several months ago, the nerves in my shoulder became paralyzed. At the point this happened I was in super good shape. I felt amazing and was working out […]

Can I compete as a bodybuilder without using anabolic steroids?

August 29, 2018

It seems I can’t watch more than 20 minutes of golf or football without seeing an ad for Androgel to treat “Low T,” or low testosterone.  The symptoms of low testosterone are very nonspecific, meaning they can come from many other things besides testosterone. While testosterone levels do decline somewhat with aging, an otherwise healthy […]

If you don’t know what biltong is, you need to!

August 29, 2018

Biltong is a form of dried, cured meat that originated in Africa. It is similar to beef jerky and is very high in protein and low in calories.  On most days, I prefer it to beef jerky and of all the brands I’ve tried, Ayoba-Yo is by far the best. They had a booth at FitExpo Philly and after I […]

Women, Toning and Myth Busting

August 29, 2018

“Toning” is a very common term in the context of fitness.   I have always been fascinated when I hear, or get to participate in, a conversation about it. When I ask what they are talking about, I invariably hear that they want “tone up” the body, or in other words, lose body fat and […]

When is Your Last Meal of the Day?

August 29, 2018

I frequently emphasize personal experimentation in regard to when, and how, we consume our food. We often hear it is best to consume our last meal of the day at least two hours before we lay in bed. This may work excellently for some… but not for all, and probably not for most.   You […]

Is a calorie a calorie?

August 29, 2018

Is a calorie from an apple the same as a calorie from potato chip? While most people intuitively know that an apple is “healthier” (It has vitamins, fiber and bulk to help keep you full), when it comes strictly to weight loss, the answer is hotly debated. However, the laws of thermodynamics cannot be, and […]
