Weight Loss

It's actually one of the biggest misconceptions in the fitness industry. Time and time again, the fitness enthusiast will tell their coach, "I just wanna tone, I don't wanna get bulky." But do they really know what they're asking for? Have they clarity for what they really want? Or are they simply just confused about how to actually reach their goals? It's most likely confusion. But it's not their fault, and it doesn't have to be that way! The problem is that “toning” has no exact meaning and thus results cannot be measured or

Here's a surprising statistic: One in 10 millennials are vegan, according to to a report in Nutrition Business Journal. Call it a lifestyle or call it an elimination diet—either way, it's picking up steam due in part to like backers like Beyoncé & Lady Gaga. I mean who doesn't want to be a little more like Queen Bey?! Oh and even Khloé Kardashian recently claimed that she lost 11 pounds just by cutting cheese and milk from her diet. So it's gotta be true right? Why is veganism going mainstream? Well there's probably a number of

Let’s get the fasting and weight-loss debate out of the way first. “Fasting” refers to an extended period of time in which you consume no food, typically for 3 to 7 complete days! “Intermittent Fasting" is defined as: not eating, or eating less, for much shorter periods of time – typically 8 to 24 hours.  You can do this by skipping breakfast, eating your first meal at noon and your last meal at 8 pm. Then you’re technically fasting for 16 hours every day, and restricting your eating to an 8-hour eating window. This is

We've all heard it before, protein (amino acids) are the building blocks for all life. Protein is essential in your daily diet so your body can repair its cells, and create new ones. Which is especially important with exercise! Hormones, neurotransmitters, digestive enzymes, energy-producing enzymes— they all depend on proteins to carry out their cellular processes. Even body composition has been linked to protein intake as well as blood sugar regulation. As you can see, protein is an important nutrient giving you energy, helping you build muscle, recover, and keeps you satiated or feeling full

Although subtle, more than half of the world population is vitamin D deficient! This is a big problem because sleep disorders are an epidemic due to vitamin D deficiency. This hurts the amount of sleep you get, the quality of your sleep, and your mood upon waking up. We have this deficiency because of the way we live. We work inside, we wear clothes, and use sunscreen. These are all realities of modern life, and they all take away from our vitamin D synthesis. This is important to note, because you do not soak up D

Should you follow a specific diet and exercise plan based upon your blood type? That is what Dr. D’Adamo suggests in his book Eat Right for Your Blood Type. D’Adamo is a naturopathic doctor who feels strongly that one’s blood type may determine which diseases and illnesses they may develop over time. It is an intriguing approach; however, no conclusive research has been conducted, and there are no studies that show blood type can be a predictor for the development of certain disease and adverse health conditions. That being said, if you are intrigued by the

Female CrossFitters and weightlifters have begun to excel in the physique conversation in the fitness industry following the realisation that hitting the iron can actually support goals of sculpting the body that you've always wanted. It’s understandable that entering the weights section for the first time can be a little daunting, but ladies, there’s really nothing to be frightened of! I get it though, theres a bunch of common myths and non-truths that still seem to be circulating about why women should hang out on the treadmill and not lift! You're doing the best you can, you

1) You’re Not Dealing With Stress Properly When you get stressed out your body produces a hormone known as cortisol. Put simply, higher levels of cortisol = higher levels of fat in the body (if it's not controlled). And since the common working man/woman pursuing the "American dream" is stressed out all day long chasing that ever elusive white picket fence, cortisol levels are at an all time high. Even if your training and diet is perfect, you're going to be hard pressed to win the body composition game. Sadly though, most people have never been
