Keto and Fat Loss

The short answer is YES it works great if the calories are controlled, which they usually are because we can’t eat sugar, bread, rice, pasta, chips, candy, pop, or juice, on the Keto Diet.   But being in ketosis doesn’t help us lose weight faster. It’s all about managing calories in and out.    Let’s dive deeper.   What is Keto? Keto is short for the ketogenic diet. It is an extremely-low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that forces the body to burn only fat for fuel instead of fat and carbohydrates. But again this doesn’t matter if the calories...

Sodium Bicarb

Athletes will do anything to get an edge. You may have heard of creatine and beta alanine, and believe it or not, that stuff you put in the fridge to absorb smells – baking soda – is also a performance supplement! It’s also used in science fairs to make volcanos explode…   Sodium bicarbonate as it is known in science-talk, improves athletic performance particularly in high-intensity activities lasting 1-10 minutes.  How it works Sodium bicarbonate works as a buffering agent in the body. Remember that “buffering” in science means neutralizing acids. Muscles happen to...

Beta Alanine: How Does It Work?

Our athletes want to win, and to be honest, we get a thrill from watching them win. They pay us to get a competitive edge. Beta-Alanine can certainly provide an advantage. But what’s with the tingling skin? Let’s get into who should take it, and what it does.   Fact. Beta-alanine helps high-intensity athletes perform better.    If that sounds like creatine, you’re close. They both help stuff like sprinting and Crossfit, but in very different ways. So don’t confuse the two. I will explain how it works and how much to take. Beta-Alanine...

Beyond Meat Burger Review

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" text_align="left" padding_bottom="25" box_shadow_on_row="no"][vc_column][vc_empty_space height="15px" image_repeat="no-repeat"][vc_column_text] This product is hotter than Hansel right now so I thought I'd give it a review. Overview: It's made out of PEOPLE! Just kidding. It's mostly peas.   Since the dawn of veggie burgers, vegans can attend barbecues without feeling left-out. And I'm all for that. I like hosting and encouraging my guests to enforce their nutrition boundaries. Be ye vegan, an abstainer from booze, nut-free, or an eater of oysters (gross); you are welcome in my home...

[vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" text_align="left" padding_bottom="25" box_shadow_on_row="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] Factors in a Successful Weight Loss [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="15px" image_repeat="no-repeat"][vc_column_text]Billions of people have lost weight. Very few (5-10% of them) have been able to keep it off. With my clients that number is much higher because I help people work on more than just eating and exercise.   It’s about setting yourself up for success. In a lunch meeting with a former client, I saw in him, all the attributes of a successful fat loss lifestyle. And it inspired this post.   He asked me out for lunch. He had...

Do Fitbits Make you Fit?

Fitbits, iwatches and other wearable technology have their pros and cons.   The Things I Like About Wearable Tech [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" text_align="left" padding_bottom="25" box_shadow_on_row="no"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text] Sleep Tracking [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="15px" image_repeat="no-repeat"][vc_column_text]This is totally awesome. We can literally wake up a hundred times a night and not remember it. This is called sleep apnea, and it’s exhausting and leads to obesity (due to the hormonal disruptions that occur when we do not sleep).   Devices can show us if we’ve been sleeping or restless.
