P90X2 – Bring it….Again!

Just wrapped up my second day of P90x2 and pretty excited about what is to come. I’ll try to provide a better overview review, but for now I thought I would just share some of my thoughts on Plyocide! I have to admit, when I heard “Think Drill”, it was the first time I would be happy to do some math….but that would not be the case. The good news is that I nailed the modified Rabbit Move!

So tip of the day: Don’t try to blow it through the roof on the first day.

And P90X2 is getting some great exposure for the science behind the scene.

News Flash – Eating at McDonald’s is not healthy

Appears this is a news flash because I can’t understand how folks can still eat there. And now the rush is on the get the limited supply of McRibs. A sandwich that contains no rib meat of any kind, a BBQ sauce loaded with HFCS, and 70 other synthetic chemicals, 34 of which are in the bun alone.

In addition to chemicals like ammonium sulfate and polysorbate 80, the most egregious may be azodicarbonamide — “a flour-bleaching agent most commonly used in the manufactur[ing] of foamed plastics like gym mats the and soles of shoes.

You can view the Time’s article here. You can also confirm the ingredients from McDonald’s own ingredient list. Yum!

Be a less meatatarian

I don’t think this article that Eating meat link to Disease should really shock anyone.

But I think it’s important to note that they are not saying to go Vegan or Raw. The point is to eat less meat. And if I may add my own two cents…since we need to eat less meat, spend more money to make sure you buy grass fed beef, free range chicken and wild fish. But they also make the next great point…

If you focus on filling up on fruits and veggies, so they’re at least half your plate, you’re not going to have a lot of room left to even eat all that meat

said Joan Salge Blake, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.

New Shakeology Flavor – Stay Healthy my friends

The new flavor is Tropical! And while I didn’t go to coach summit this year and thus missed out on the official taste test, the feedback from other coaches is that it will be a hit. So while I doubt I will switch away from Chocolate any time soon, this appears to be a nice alternative to Greenberry….which I really can’t get into.

For those wondering about Vanilla flavor, well they just can’t find a way to do it naturally. You see, the dirty little industry secret is that the vanilla bean is just not strong enough of a masking agent. As a flavorist friend of mine told me, you would need a huge amount of vanilla beans and it’s just not cost effective. So every Flavor company out there can only provide a vanilla flavor made using synthetic chemicals…many of which are carcinogenic in nature, but the FDA allows their use as long as they retain a ration of X amount per million whatever. It’s total hogwash to me no matter how low the ratio is…and Beachbody feels the same way. So while the demand for Vanilla is strong, and they could sell it in the bucket-loads, they refuse to release a Vanilla flavor until it meets their health and nutrition guidelines. I think that once again says something about Beachbody, and I’m glad to be associated with this company.

P90X2 – Are you ready?

I just realized that I’ve been so caught up with Insanity and Asylum that I’ve completely neglected Tony and P90x. Well no more! It was just announced at the 2012 Beachbody Coach Summit this weekend that there is a release date coming soon!!! So with that thought, how about a cool little preview to get you worked up?

The best raw Bodybuilding food

What if there was something that was 100% natural that would increase your strength and give you instant  and blazing energy  to get through your workouts?  The best raw bodybuilding food on Earth is the Olive. Olives are in fact “My Dianabol”. Who needs steroids when olives are available? Olives are also the number one mucus dissolving fruit and the highest fruit  in minerals.  – Stephan Arlin from his book Raw Power, building strength and Muscle Naturally.
This is all fine and dandy with the one problem that I cannot stand to eat Olives and have avoided them like the plague. But after reading this I set out to find something I can not only handle, but also enjoy. My fridge is stocked with every variation I can find and the the results are not good. Howerver I think I finally found a winner!!!

I found these at Costco…of course…and very happy with the flavor. I guess you throw anything in front of me with garlic and red pepper spice and I’m a push over. But these really taste great and can be enjoyed by themselves, as a side, or just throw in a salad.

What Did I just Eat? Oh boy

I finished reading the book “What Did I just Eat?” by doctors Paul Baker, Patrick Baker and Ryan Berlin. I highly highly recommend this book. It does a nice job piecing together all the nuggets of great nutrition advice I’ve been trying to gather the last two years PLUS more! It’s a thin book and just gets right to the truth of matters. No fluff.  To give one example, I have been on the path to restricting dairy from my diet, but after reading this book, It’s completely off the menu….NOW! So pick up this book and really understand why diets fail and how you can take proper steps to eating clean losing weight the right way.  It’s really a great companion guide to Beachbody products and exercise.  This book can be purchased here.
