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 […]

Drinking Calories

August 29, 2018

People ask me all of the time if things are healthy, and while it seems like a simple question, I am not even sure what “healthy” means. Obviously, if someone is deathly allergic to a food, then it is unhealthy for him or her no matter how packed full of nutrients it is.  Also, and I think […]

Tips to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolution

August 29, 2018

If weight loss is on your New Year’s Resolutions list this year, here are three things to increase the likelihood of your success. Avoid changing everything or making unrealistic goals. Instead, like I told my friends at SHAPE Magazine, try “piggy-backing on existing habits—even if they’re not the best habits, it is still better than trying to […]

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 […]

Is Breakfast the Most Important Meal?

From television commercials advertising large bowls of morning cereal, to food-pyramid nutrition taught in elementary schools, America is rooted in the idea that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
