We are what we eat! Certainly food plays a major part in our life, punctuating nearly our every move.  Often what we eat and drink determines how we organize our time, plan our social outings, and even sometimes it tells us what emotions to feel. (It's that powerful) As part of our relationship to food, we often talk about being on a "DIET." But have you ever wondered where the dreaded word originates? (Don't worry I'll nerd out for you on that one) The word "DIET", as it's used in society today (the food and drink that we habitually consume)

Many diet plans out there frame cheat meals or cheat days as having some type of important benefits. So called "experts" will argue that they’re supposed to prevent you from feeling deprived, boost metabolism, increase the chances of your success with a nutrition plan , etc. Well, at Frequency we simply DON"T agree. (You're just too fragile right now) Now don't get me wrong, when you've hit your goal weight and body composition

For a long time, we thought avocados were good for nothing but ready-made guac and a decent California burger every now and then. But these little nutritional hand grenades were having an explosive impact on our diets for all that time. How so? They’re infused with a key nutrient for maintaining healthy weight: FAT. Wait…fat can help us maintain our weight? You mean to tell me, that dietary fat doesn’t make us fat? EXACTLY. Seriously though, fat is not something to avoid. For starters, it’s essential for normal growth and development. Dietary fat also

Okay so we've touched on protein, but what about all my "CARBOHOLICS" out there? Where's the love right? ;) Don't worry, this one is for you. Truth be told, carbohydrates (good and bad) are such a controversial topic when it comes to fat loss. Their hormonal impact is HUGE and you'd be surprised to know that contrary to popular belief, carbohydrates aren't all bad! With so many carbohydrate trends out there, it gets increasingly difficult to make smart choices. Truth be told, what type, what amount, and when we eat carbs has a significant impact

  What Does Protein Do? In terms of the overall health and function of the human body, protein is essential for building and repairing things. Your organs, muscles, skin, hair, nails, bones and certain hormones are all made up of some amount of protein. It’s an absolute requirement for sustaining life and proper function of the human body. It doesn’t matter if you want to lose fat, build muscle, or just be a healthy, well-functioning human being

You have many options when it comes to selecting fats and oils for cooking. But it’s not just a matter of choosing oils that are healthy, but also whether they stay healthy after having been cooked with. The Integrity of Cooking Oils When you’re cooking at a high heat, you want to use oils that are stable and don’t oxidize or go rancid easily. When oils undergo oxidation, they react with oxygen to form free radicals and harmful compounds that you definitely don’t want to be consuming. The most important factor in determining an oil’s resistance to oxidation and rancidification, both at

If you’re reading this, you're in the right place. Because if you have the internet, frequent Facebook, use google, or even search nutrition hashtags on Instagram, you’ve probably seen the term macros thrown around. Short for “macronutrients,” it refers to carbs, fats, and proteins—the three basic components of every diet. If you get their proportions right, it makes dieting a lot more effective when simple calorie restriction fails. One of the problems with traditional calorie counting is that it doesn’t take into account what you’re eating, just how many calories. Sure, portion control alone might work for a while,
