Recipe: Fall Coffee Treat

Tags:

When possible, I don't eat before my workouts. I do 95% of my workouts about 10-12 hours into an overnight fast. The exception is when I'm really hungry.

I don't want my body using sugar to fuel my workouts; I want it using fat. ...Read More

Tags:

I'm not much of a cook. I keep my meals super simple, fast & easy. I don't play around too much with spices because I'm cheap. True story. I don't want to pay $8 for a spice I'm going to use 10 times a year. But really, it's about keeping it easy. Complex meals and time-consuming recipes just don't flow with my personality and lifestyle. For fat loss friendly eating ...Read More

Tags:

One of my clients, Chris, joined the Fat Loss Fast Track because though she had already lost a lot of weight, she was beginning to put it back on.

Are You In The Trap of “Better”?

When I was nearly 350 lbs, I'd stop at Chick-fil-A every morning on the way to work. For breakfast, I'd order a 4 count of chicken minis (probably would have ordered a 12 count if it was possible), hashbrowns, a chicken biscuit and a large Diet Coke, no ice. (Sidebar: despite the fact that that's A LOT of food, I'd be hungry 90 minutes later because of the blood sugar ...Read More
