Good foods vs. Bad foods.

I'm always amazed at what people set up in their minds as "good" food and "bad" food. "Healthy" food and "guilty" food. "Lean" food and "fat" food. The truth is - very, very few foods either qualify as good or bad. And here's the great news. It's not to late to change your thinking. You can develop a more healthy relationship with food.

Intense exercise

Research now shows that, on average, folks experience a 2-4% decline in their resting metabolic rate with each passing decade after the age of 25. Add to this metabolic decline a 5lb loss of muscle mass with every decade and getting older is a depressing proposition. But today we're going to teach you that there's hope. We'll show you how to off-set what some erroneously believe is inevitable.

In this article, we've got a comprehensive how-to guide for creating your own exercise programs based on your body type. It includes program guidelines, exercise videos, and high intensity interval options. If you're interested in designing your own program, this is a must read.

The battle of the sweeteners

Is Splenda is as bad as some folks say it is. Can Aspartame cause cancer? Is the "all natural" sweetener, Stevia, a safe alternative to these "artificial" sweeteners. Find out here. In this article, a little research is mixed in with some common sense to arrive at a verdict.

Chances are, you’ve got a deficiency

You hear it all the time. Just eat a "balanced diet" and you should be fine. However, recent research analyzing 70 diets has shown that every single one was deficient in 3 or more nutrients - with some diets being deficient in at least 15. Not good - but completely preventable.

Lowering cholesterol

Nowadays, at the first sign of high cholesterol, docs are putting people on statin drugs and other blood lipid lowering chemicals. And while these chemicals work pretty well, they come complete with a host of unwelcome side effects; side effects that can make managing your cholesterol a rocky road. Try these natural strategies for getting your cholesterol in check.

When exercise doesn’t work

Recent research has shown that exercise - alone - doesn't have much of an impact on body composition. Even if you're doing up to 5 hours a week. However, that doesn't mean all hope is lost. When you combine exercise and the right nutritional intervention, the body fat seems to fly off.

Could it really be possible to exercise for as much as 14 hours a week and still gain body fat? Sadly, the answer is yes...as scary as that may seem. Click here to discuss not only how it's possible...but how to prevent it.

Insane intervals with Scot Prohaska

If you haven't heard of the legendary Manhattan Beach sand dune, take note. A who's-who list of top pro athletes has run the dune as part of their conditioning programs: Kobe Bryant and Paul Pierce of the NBA; Jerry Rice and Tony Gonzales of the NFL; Tito Ortiz and Roger Huerta of the UFC; Rob Blake and Petr Sykora of the NHL. And when my good buddy Scot Prohaska, a top strength coach, invited me out to the dune last summer for his "Sunday Ritual," I foolishly agreed.

Birth control is a hot topic in the Figure Athlete world. So, what's the deal? Does it impact progress or not? Well, as usual, the answer isn't straightforward. Indeed, my response is typically the dreaded, "It depends."

Spice up your meals – and your metabolism

When most people add sauces and dressings to their food, they're usually also adding a ton of unwanted sugars, unhealthy fats, and a laundry list of artificial ingredients barely worthy of a sewage pond, let alone their bodies. Sure, the food tastes better. But at what cost? To replace the crappy dressings with some healthy ones, click here.

I demand proof
