Quick Healthy Minute Meal

You "dont have time to cook"? You "cant afford healthy food"? Poppycock!! Here is a recipe that's really healthy, easy to make, dirt cheep, and FAST! Even students can make this. It takes about a minute per serving which is much faster than standing in the line at McDonalds and much healthier. Lentils are another wonder-bean. Tons of protein, fiber and vitamins. There is a reason that many people who dont want to eat meat or cant afford to eat meat choose lentils. Now lentils by themselves are pretty bland, kinda like cooked cardboard BUT add my secret ingredient (fresh...

It helps burn off those extra calories and it will make you feel a lot better...

Egg Whites and Eggology

Has anyone bought any egg products from the company "Eggology"? Jon and Gareth on facebook brought this company to my attention and it looks like it might be a really good and inexpensive source of protein for people. Here is Eggology's egg-white product.What I especially liked is that they have organic egg whites as well. Perhaps I could have saved lots of hate mail had I found about this company earlier, my video "Egg Yolks, Toss Them Out" won me the wrath of an angry public :( If you have purchased any products from Eggology, please let me know what...

3 Minute Abs

This is a 3-minute ab workout that will give you a strong core for better sports performance and also protect your lower back from injury in everyday life. Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as spot fat removal. If you a big belly, you can't get washboard abs by doing this ab workout, or any other ab workout. It breaks my heart when I see overweight people at the gym doing 30 minute ab workouts, what they really should be doing is 27 minutes of jogging and this 3 minute ab workout. This 3-minute ab workout will...

Muscle lost if workouts stop?

Some very common questions people ask are:"Will I lose all my muscle if I stop working out?""How fast will I lose my muscle if I stop working out?"Well, it turns out that I unintentionally did a little research project on myself to answer your above questions. After six months of not working out upper body because of shoulder issues, I am finally back to limited upper body workouts. You folks who complained that my legs were proportionally too small got your way, I reduced the size of my upper body to match :) The first thing you have to define...

Eating less is not necessarily better when losing weight

For many beginners who want to lose weight they think that the less they eat, the better. NOT TRUE. Starving yourself is NOT the answer, you need to eat the right amount. I know you are in a hurry to lose the fat but you spent years adding the fat, you cant lose it overnight. Many beginners end up on a starvation diet which lowers their metabolism and can start burning muscle. So how do you know how much you should eat? I know I sound like a broken record but use my calorie calculator! Its easy, in 20 seconds...

Twinkie Diet and other fad diets

The current hot topic in dieting is the "Twinkie Diet" suggested by professor Mark Haub's research project which caused me primal pillow-scream when I read about it. The first thing I shouted at the top of my lungs upon reading the article (scaring our new dog to death) was: Weight loss is not the same thing as fat loss!! Weight loss is a huge industry, every month there is another fad diet book hitting the bookstores and the talkshow circuit. How can one differentiate between a dangerous fad diet and a good nutritional plan? First of all, don't be snowed...
