I don’t have time to eat healthy!

no-time-to-eat-healthy

Yes, you do! You just don't know how so let me teach you - its called batch cooking. On a weekend you make a big batch of something and freeze it in individual meal sized containers. Then, in the morning during the work week when you are going 1000mph with not a moment to spare, you grab a frozen container out the door in the morning and then microwave it at work/school. Its actually a lot less time than driving to restaurants or waiting in lines at the deli so you can actually SAVE time during the week by brining...

No Judgments Fitness?

dont-judge-me!

No Judgments Fitness? I don't go to the gym often but when I do, I judge people but its probably not what you think.  I judge people by two simple things in a gym: Adherence to gym etiquette.  Do they just abandon their weights on the floor when they are done?  Do they block the rack of weights by doing curls right next to the mirror? Do they just move towels and water bottles off equipment to use it rather than asking who is using it and if they can work in?  Do they bicep curl in the solitary squat rack when there...

One Weird Trick To Sleep Better

How To Sleep Better

Some people seem to be able to sleep anywhere, anytime - on a subway, on an airplane, sitting on a sofa. I have always been envious of these folk as I am a light sleeper. I often have spells where I either have trouble getting to sleep (not common) or spells where I wake up often and have trouble getting back to sleep (common). The slightest sound can wake me up. A motion sensor light outside turning on will wake me up. A bad dream will wake me up. Then there is pee. Not only am I old but I...

Lose fat effortlessly with cauliflower rice

lose-fat-easy-way-cauliflower-rice

I am on a mini-cut for Halloween and Cauliflower Rice is an essential part of my fat loss 'system'.  There are a lot of ways you can lose fat and anything that keeps you in a consistent caloric deficit day after day will work BUT some ways are a lot easier than others.  The absolute hardest way to lose fat is calorie counting without changing your lifestyle or your nutrition.  The absolute easiest is making a few health substitutions, for example drinking water during the day instead of CocaCola.  Cauliflower rice is a great example of a healthy substitution and I eat...

Best Vegan Bodybuilding Meal Plans

vegan-bodybuilding-meal-plans

Although there are many vegan meal plans and vegan recipes, the problem for vegans who are active at sports is getting enough protein to gain muscle and get stronger.  McDougall is fine for sedentary people and is great for health but its not appropriate for anyone who is active in weightlifting sports. CustomMealPlanner has two different vegan meal plans which cater to gym goers and athletes: The "Vegan-Health" nutritional type caters to those who are more interested in health and basic fitness.  Although this does not have "bodybuilding" in the name, it has FAR more protein than any vegan meal plans you...

confusing bodybuilding advice

Workout today for tomorrow you may die

Professional personal trainers and coaches cant seem to agree on anything, why is this?  This post was inspired by a question from Ugo at Sweat4health today who ask: Having a few personal training sessions and reading more and more left me <em>more confused</em> instead of enlightened. The feeling is that everyone says the opposite of everything: e.g. there’s no such thing as “low protein” vs you’re not eating enough, or intermittent fasting is good for health vs you should wake up in the middle of the night to eat and boost metabolism at all times, or you should do x...

Bicycle commuting too dangerous!

bike-commute-safe

I commuted by bike to my dentist appointment today, only took 25 minutes which is 5 minutes faster than I could have driven there because of morning traffic. I got 50 minutes of great cardio instead of wasting 60 minutes sitting on my butt in my car. Biking is "too dangerous" you say? I'll tell you what is way more dangerous than biking, obesity! Number of biking deaths per year = 726. Number of obesity related deaths per year = 300,000. Now tell me again what is dangerous! I have been bike commuting since 1989 without a single accident, it...

Don’t lift with your back?

Dont-lift-with-your-back

"Don't lift with your back!" Try telling that to the deadlift record holders! We get so used to repeating trite phrases that we dont stop to think if they are actually true or not. "Lift with your legs, not your back" is not good advice because to do that requires a knee-squat where the knees scissor way forward which is a recipe for knee injury. There is a reason that when people lift a heavy object off the ground, they use the form of a deadlift, because its the most ergonomic way. Can everyone deadlift safely? Certainly NOT! Most people...
