You cannot “eyeball” your calories, you don’t know how!

Posted by:

I often receive the guarantee from new clients that they will “eyeball” their food or monitor their portions opposed to accurately tracking their food (against my recommendations). 

The problem here right off the bat is the average person has no idea how many calories are in a particular food by looking at it. The portion of food you eat or the amount of fullness you feel is not necessarily indicative of the calories you’ve consumed!

If we make an analogy to the ...

The Top Secret To Curb Your Cravings!

Posted by:

The title sounds like a lie and a scam, the secret to stopping your cravings. All too often now, a new quick fix solution is marketed to build more muscle or lose more weight without investing too much effort. I run into these advertisements on a regular basis by running a personal training studio. It’s unfortunate for most of us but the real solution is hard work, often times restriction and a realignment of our priorities. Nothing worth having is ...

RP Diet Templates Are Highly Recommended

Posted by:

I have added a section to the website describing and recommending the Renaissance Periodization Diet Templates as my preferred option for client diet management.

I’ve also recently began offering 1 on 1 Nutrition Classes at the studio for individuals struggling with either MyFitnessPal or the RP Diet Templates.

Should I Use Protein Powder Supplements?

Posted by:

Clients often ask me whether they should use protein powder supplements and if so, which one? As with all my answers, it usually “depends”.

Nearly every client I’ve ever had comes in with a pretty low protein intake. This can be rectified by adding a good 4-8 ounces of protein with your 3-5 meals per day depending on your current body weight. If that’s difficult to do, you hate most protein, you don’t consume meat/eggs, etc then protein powders are a ...

New USDA Dietary Guidelines

Posted by:

For 2017 the United States Depepartment of Agriculture released some new dietary guidelines. It notably eased it’s hard restrictions towards cholesterol and sodium while giving the OK for a cup of caffeinated coffee in the morning.

The Washington Post had an excellent article on all of the details so I don’t want to copy and rehash what they’ve already said.
