Sleep and Weight Loss

August 29, 2018

According to a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, dieters that were getting adequate sleep (7+hours per night) were losing body fat, not muscle mass. Dieters that were not getting adequate sleep experienced 55% less fat loss than dieters getting adequate sleep. The whole concept of over eating is much more chemical than […]

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 […]

Lose 5 Pounds with a 5 Day Cleanse. OMG…

August 29, 2018

TGIF… just got an email telling me I could “Lose 5 Pounds with a 5 Day Cleanse.” Who sends a weight loss doctor, advertisements for weight loss? Insert head into hands. My advice? Please don’t do this. Maybe you can lose 5 pounds in five days, but I guarantee that it will not be fat […]

Built Bar Video Review Contest – DABOM

August 29, 2018

Don’t hate me because I’m surrounded by a sea of Built Bars. I can’t help it that I WON the Built Bar Video Review Contest. Ok, I was 1 of 20 winners, but still, I am on cloud 9 they liked my video and even better my stash of high protein treats has been replenished. Thanks Built […]

Different Types of Belly Fat (POPSUGAR)

August 29, 2018

This article discusses different kinds of belly fat and how to get rid of it.  (Thanks Jen Glantz for including me in it.) Here is a brief breakdown: Belly fat can either be subcutaneous (under the skin) or visceral (in between the organs, ie. “deep” fat). The visceral fat is what carries major health risks […]

Thinking of trying the Keto Diet?

August 29, 2018

I am not a fan of anything drastic, and severely restricting carbohydrates for the rest of your life is certainly drastic.  Out of every 1000 people who try it, 990 of them will fail.  And although there may be some long-term risks to a ketogenic diet, they are irrelevant for the vast majority simply because […]

Think you can’t enjoy happy hour and lose weight? THINK AGAIN!

August 29, 2018

With a little bit of planning, you can get your drink on (responsibly) and eat great food while still progressing toward your weight loss goals. In fact, a weight loss plan that involves booze and sliders is probably going to be a lot easier to stick to than one that forbids bread and alcohol. If […]

Watermelon and Feta Salad

August 29, 2018

I made this simple, low-calorie salad the other night and wanted to share it. (The amounts are just estimations; I did not measure the ingredients as I was not following a recipe.) You can adjust the ingredients to fit your nutrition plan. I think diced Vidalia onion and maybe Kalamata olives would add a little […]

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 […]
