Lies, Greed, and Poor Clinical Decisions

  If you didn't guess, I'm talking about supplements and those who sell them. They are not always regulated but the government. Whereas food in grocery stores is highly scrutinized for our protection. Some work, some don't, and some do harm. Every few months a fitness or medical professional approaches me claiming to have a new and improved line of supplements. To protect my clients I do my homework before selling them. What ends up happening is I find a lot of holes in their research. Often times I learn that the proprietor doesn't...

Kb Jumps Around, Gets Fitter

  They say the older you get, things get taken from you. Unless, that is, you learn new modalities like soft tissue release and joint distraction. Then you can get older and be better at the same time. I found this out at Fuel Training Club, and I want to pass along the cool stuff I've learned.  In January 2014 I started training there 4-5x a week. Full disclosure of affiliation: we promote each other, so technically I am bias. But everything I'm writing here is true. It's intense lifting and cardio. Here...

Avocados! The Fatty Fruit

You should treat avocados like a fat. Your basic avocado has about 20-30 grams of the succulent stuff, depending on its size. This is handy since that's the correct fat portion for a low carb meal, if you're into that.  Another way to control their portion is to mash it up. Half a cup is 18 grams of fat. They taste great with a bit of salt and pepper, they're amazing on salads, or as a dip. See below for recipes. Their fat profile is very healthy. Kinda like a nut. In terms...

Quinoa’s Qualities – and Sorry if I Bashed You

If you read my recent blog about quinoa, which was pretty popular, you might have felt like I was bashing it. And I don't mean to get the husk off. So I'm going to write about the benefits of quinoa in more depth, than my previous piece (where the goal was to dispel the myth that quinoa is high-protein). I take your feedback seriously. So this one's for you and for Quinoa. What it is: It's a seed but nutritionally it resembles to a whole grain. The outside is poisonous and is removed...

BBQ Tips – Flip and Rotate

My Dad’s barbeque was sold to him by a “friend” for $100. Any money we saved was subsequently wasted on burned meat.   This grill has more hot and cold spots than Brett Favre's career. If that metaphor means nothing, try this one: This grill has more hot and cold spot than Tinder (so I've heard).   The only consistent thing about this grill is that it has never been predictable.   One day I took it apart and cleaned the burners with an old ice pick – patiently pushing through the dozens of burner holes...

Quinoa is Not High Protein

People are surprised when I tell them that quinoa is not high in protein. I don't blame anyone for not knowing correct nutrition science because incorrect advice is ubiquitous. And it's not coming from just scam artists or beauty magazines. It is on the news, from your doctor, or personal trainer, or the labels you see in the grocery store. Every day I hear someone give bad nutrition advice. It used to upset me. Now I spread the truth through this blog. Please share it. Quinoa is mostly carbs and the protein...

Books for Greatness

[caption id="attachment_831" align="alignleft" width="300"] My actual books![/caption] Stuck in a rut? These are some books that have helped me and a lot of my clients. Maybe one of them can help you.         The Four Agreements This is a short book. It's a really simple framework that if followed even sometimes, can keep you out of drama. After I read it, I made four more "agreements" or guidelines to follow. At the time one was about Jiu-Jitsu, one about business conflicts, etc.   Mind Gym This is a fun and light read. It's a collection stories from...

Running Ramp-Up

Running is great.   Running too much too soon, will hurt you.   Literally everyone in the health and fitness industry agrees on this concept, which rarely happens!   If you didn’t run much this winter, here's a safe way to get back into it:   Try running for a 30-60 seconds, and then walk 30-60 seconds. Repeat for 10-20 minutes and reassess how you feel over the next two days. If you didn't injury yourself, then run again a bit further or with shorter walking sets.   The app "Couch to 5 k" might help you.   Obviously the idea is to...

Food Safety 101

I tell all my clients to batch-cook, or at least make enough dinner for leftovers. I'm sure to warn them about food poisoning. Any time you eat leftovers, there is the risk that you end up writhing around on the floor exploding your insides out from both ends. Or worse. In 1999 20 Canadians died of food poisoning, that we know of. More likely were misdiagnosed. Every year 15%-30% of Canadians get food poisoning. Considering it often goes unreported or misdiagnosed, I wonder if it's more like 50%. This article will help...

What I Learned About Fitness by Painting a Wall

To be a great coach, I have to relate to my clients. I don't struggle (much) with my fitness or nutrition anymore, so it's good to humbled in another arenas. It allows me to feel the frustration of learning, change, and set backs -- since that's part of transforming our health and bodies.   What better way to dish up some humble pie than getting my ass handed to me in a DIY project.     "What could be so difficult?" I thought.   Well, a lot apparently.   Here is what happened and why I think it was...
