The Best Pre Workout and Post Workout Meal

Back in the day the best pre workout and post workout were pretty straight forward. We used carbohydrates for energy and would bring fast acting carbs in the form of sugar to the gym with us to get us through the workout. That was in the days before the ketogenic diet craze. Now pre workout and post workout are a little more complicated. Some people do really well burning fats for energy and others don’t.

Are Canadians Really That Vain?

I have been doing a survey lately to see how many people know what vitamin D actually does. People know that it comes from the sun and some people know that most people don’t get enough in North America. People know it’s important and some people even take a supplement of some form. I’ve been asking people for at least a couple weeks now and only 2 people kind of knew what vitamin D does. It does many things but the main thing I was looking for was that it enables the absorption of calcium.

Hormesis

I was talking to a sports therapist last weekend at the Expo centre. He uses cold therapy to reduce inflammation. Sounds pretty normal, right? This isn’t putting an ice pack on a small injury though. He will put you in a room and drop the temperature of that room to minus 160 degrees Celsius for one minute. Wow hey?

My Segment On CTV

I went on CTV again the other day. It was a bit short notice, so I randomly picked how to do a proper squat because I see them being done incorrectly on a regular basis and this can end with permanent damage to the body. I was very nervous, so I had my friend Stephanie come support me and help me demonstrate a proper squat. After the segment was over I thought it went terrible. I thought I rambled off topic and sounded lame. I saw the replay of the segment and it wasn’t nearly as bad as I first thought. Have a look at it here:

Getting Fat Adapted

The theory behind 6 meals a day made total sense. Let me explain. The idea was to keep your blood glucose level the same through the day instead of eating a big meal, then having your blood glucose level max out, jacking insulin output which stores fat, then having blood glucose drop off due to the high insulin level, leaving you fat and tired.

My First 5 Day Fast

OMG that was crazy! Why would I do such a thing??? I’ll tell you why… the health benefits are huge! And experts keep discovering more benefits. There’s a right way and a wrong way of doing a fast of course. I’ll go over the benefits and the right way to do it but first I am reminded of a story about the doctor that discovered bacteria on hands. I am reminded of this story because there are a lot of people that will think fasting is crazy. And it is in a way. I’ll get into that too.

My Segment On CTV With Cory

This week I just wanted to share my 5 minutes of fame with you. I think I’m pretty famous now. I’ve had people recognize me from television since I’ve been on CTV. It was fun to do. They put you in what they call the green room first. I don’t know why they call it the green room. Cory came in and had a little chat with me about what I wanted to talk about and made me feel comfortable. He is really easy to talk to. He then grabbed me a few minutes before the segment and showed me where to stand. It was pretty cool being on the set. A girl did her segment then it switched to Cory who did weather in front of the green screen and then it switched to me. Cory came over and stood beside me. Here’s what happened next:
