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.

Last week I wrote an article talking about how 50% of articles written are 100% bullshit. I didn’t mention in that article how many studies are also crap. I have heard about half the studies are also skewed to prove a product. One of my clients is a pediatrician who studied this exact topic while getting her PhD. When I asked her what percentage of studies are false, all she said was, "A lot." and chuckled.
I want to tell you about the greatest pre-workout I have ever discovered. First, I am going to bash all other pre-workout crap. The first pre-workout I ever took was ephedrine with caffeine and ASA stack. I quickly got addicted to this stack. There is nothing good for you in this stack. They all have side effects. The ephedrine and caffeine don’t let you sleep the ephedrine as well has a history of causing heart problems. ASA causes leaky gut syndrome.
Heat up the body with your choice of method. If you`re using a cardio machine the intensity should be low and you should have a sweat going for at least a couple minutes before your done. Then I like mobilization to increase the range of motion. Mobilization is a form of dynamic stretching. Never do static stretching before an activity; static stretching (holding stretches) is good for a cool down after your workout.
What I want to talk about today is the types of exercises that you need to do to get the abs showing and then a couple cool tricks that makes a huge difference. The best exercises to do for weight loss, strength, and for building muscle mass are the same. They are called compound exercises. Basically, you are not isolating muscles like a body builder of the 70’s. You are working as much of your body at once as you can in various powerlifting movements with body building sets, reps, and rest times.
There’s a couple summits coming up that I feel are particularly important to mention. The Thyroid Summit is coming up and so is The Fat Summit. They are related in some ways and I’m sure there will be some of the same speakers at both.
There’s still so much confusion and misinformation out there about fat, both the fat on our bodies and the fats we eat. You’ve been told that eating fat makes you fat–and increases your risk for heart disease and other chronic illnesses–but fat is NOT the enemy. The truth is: eating MORE FAT can help shut down cravings, accelerate weight loss and potentially prevent or reverse disease!
There are 2 thoughts when it comes to food. I hear the comment “Food is meant to be enjoyed”. Agreed. To a point. Alcohol is meant to be enjoyed as well. The other way to think of food is, the number one thing you are trying to accomplish with food is to get the nutrients your body needs. Hopefully you can learn how to prepare foods that provide your body with much needed nutrients, and enjoy them.
In last week's article I talked about GMOs and the unbelievable dangers of eating this toxic waste. This stuff is10x worse than I thought. It should most definitely be illegal cuz it kills people way faster than any hazard I've heard of but this is the greatest example of how the American dollar rules the world. If you have faith in your government to regulate hazards to keep you safe, forget about it!
20 years ago Dr. Jeffrey Smith went to a lecture. A genetic engineer was talking about how they are about to genetically engineer the food supply. This engineer was intimately familiar with the technology and he said that the technology wasn’t ready for production. He said it was completely dangerous for those who eat it and for the environment. Dr. Jeffrey Smith has been trying to eliminate GMOs ever since.
The Microbiome Summit was last weekend and 33 doctors got together to talk about the bacteria of the body. Many of the doctors at this summit believe the microbiome is the one of the greatest discoveries in modern medicine and the unseen root cause (or cure), of almost all health problems. The doctors say the bacteria is our greatest allies against disease and illness
If you pay attention to the snacks you keep on hand, you can actually use them to get leaner. No, they’re not diet pills that will magically shave pounds off your physique—they’re simply healthy foods that will go a long way toward staving off hunger and preventing you from gorging at mealtime.
If you’re on a mission to tone up then it’s really important to hone your fat loss rather than simply weight loss. Losing pounds feels good, but if those pounds are precious muscle, then you’re actually hurting your overall ability for fat loss. In order to ensure that the weight you’re losing is FAT and not MUSCLE take the following 15 Essential Fat Loss Tips to heart.
I hear a lot lately how it’s not your fault that you’re fat. I don’t want to enable addictions but if you’re going to blame somebody else, then you can blame the food in industry. Here’s why.
Lectin and ghrelin are 2 more hormones that need to be manipulated to control weight. Ghrelin is the hunger hormone. Ghrelin increases until you eat with the highest increase just before you eat.
As an EMT, half the people I see going to the emergency room are in for abdominal problems and half of those people leave the hospital undiagnosed. While your family doctor argues with an alternative medicine doctor about whether leaky gut syndrome exists or not, let me explain what it is, how it’s caused, and what to do about it. I want you to know this isn’t like the sasquatch; you see it every day, it has a profound effect on our society, and you probably have it to some
Holy are beans controversial! The vegans say eat them, the Paleos say don’t eat them, Timothy Ferris, author of the 4-hour body says eat them, Dr. Mark Hyman says don’t eat them. Every article I read says something different. Who’s right? I guess that depends what you are looking to accomplish with your diet.
This is a very complicated topic so contact me for more information. I’ll try to be relatively direct here.
Your hormones are what depict how your body is going to function and what you are going to look like. If your personal trainer can’t give you a solid answer on how to manipulate your
There’s the counting calories method, the cutting out allergens method, all kinds of gimmicky brand name methods, the detox method, the intermittent fasting method, the graze all day (small meals many times a day), method. Holy crap there’s a lot of methods! My favorite? The keto-diet or ketogenic diet. Sit back, you’re going to want to hear this.
