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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

What did I just eat?

I have read a good number of books on nutrition since I’ve gone through my transformation. It’s amazing to me how health and fitness truly is a journey and not a destination….if I may borrow that phrase from Dr. Baker. So with that thought in mind, I just have to share a really down to earth, […]

Recipe: Avocado Tuna Salad (from INSANITY: THE ASYLUM™)

I have always loved getting into the nutrition guides of new programs like P90x and Insanity. I have always listened to the advice that nutrition is 50% of the success with these programs, and I couldn’t agree more.  So I’m thrilled yet again as I review the nutrition plan for Asylum and here is my […]

Shakeology 3 day Cleanse

A common question I get about Shakeology is how to do the 3 day cleanse. Here is an excellent video on how to do it. I don’t recommend it while in a middle of an intense workout program like P90x or Insanity. But if you are coming off a vacation or getting ready to start a […]

Shakeology – Superfoods Central

How cool is it that even Oprah’s O magazine is talking about Shakeology? specifically, they are giving the spot light to Darin Olien who co-produced Shakeology. I love how they sum up Olien..  Olien consumes no processed foods, no polysyllabic ingredients invented in labs, no high-fructose corn syrup or trans fats, no artificial flavorings, no antibiotic-laced dairy products, […]

How I kicked the Diet Coke addiction

Celebrating my one year anniversary from kicking Diet Coke out of my life!! Funny, I never thought I could end that relationship and then I just went cold turkey in one day. I think the major driving force has been the continued news reports not only about Aspartame but how even the innocent sounding “Carmel […]

Mi0 Water Enhancer – NOT

Have you seen the latest all out marketing campaign for the water flavoring product called Mi0? Watching the commercial I was already yacking as they swirl this red thick liquid into a perfectly clean glass of water. The red coloring misting and swirling through the water. All I can think about is the petro-chemicals used for the color […]

Should I give protein shakes to my 8-year-old

After a longer workout (over one hour), a combination of carbohydrates and protein in a 4:1 ratio is recommended for recovery. I have to admit I thought this was going to be a stupid article with worthless advice. But I have to admit that Dr. Melina Jampolis did a great job responding to this question. […]
