You’re going to think it’s funny, but my 2-year old daughter loves to decorate “Easter Eggs”… and although it’s been quite a while since last Easter (after all, NEXT Easter is only a couple months away), we still break out the eggs from time to time for a little Easter Egg decorating like we did just the other day.
Truthfully, it doesn’t require a lot of extra work, as Daddy always has hard-boiled eggs in the fridge. Why? Because they’re a great, incredibly convenient high protein snack chock-full of healthy fats and more vitamins that you can count. That’s why!
Could it really be that ingesting this one single “super nutrient” from good ol’ Mother Nature, just ONCE per day, could provide ALL of these incredible health benefits at the SAME time? (more…)
Hi, this is BioTrust Medical Advisor and leading board certified physician Dr. Phil Spiess, and there’s something rather disturbing about fish and krill oil supplements that I must share with you today. You see, while Omega-3 fatty acids are by far one of the most important supplements you could ever take for your health and longevity—providing heart health, memory, focus, skin, joint, vision, weight management, mood enhancement, pain relief, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging benefits just to name a few—what you probably DIDN’T know is that the vast majority of fish oil supplements on the market today are completely ineffective and utterly WORTHLESS.
Yes, it’s true, and in the paragraphs that follow, I’ll clearly show you ALL the shocking reasons why… enough to make you wonder if ANY fish or krill oil supplement is actually worth taking, or even worse, safe to consume… (more…)
Hey, it’s Joel and Josh and today we want to address the big “carb” debate while providing you with some simple alternatives. You see, the mainstream media is constantly bombarding the American public with messages to eat fewer carbs. And while Americans could certainly use an overhaul on their carb-eating habits, eating less isn’t necessarily the answer, nor is it required when you follow this one simple “carb rule”:
Eat less sugar, eat more fiber.
As the above carb rule suggests, the biggest problem with your current carb intake is likely that you’re eating far too much sugar—and far too little fiber…a simple problem to correct when you know exactly to do.
Secret-ingredient foods are by far the best fat-burning foods you can possibly eat. In fact, here’s a list of the foods we included in our huge home-cooked dinner tonight, each of them containing the magic “secret ingredient”:
You’ve probably heard the tip that if you’re interested in losing weight, it’s a good idea to eat slowly and chew your food at least 15-20 times before swallowing. Doing so allows your brain and body to actually sense that it’s full, instead of cramming a bunch of food down your throat only to find out 30 mins later that you’re WAY stuffed.
And for that reason—and a few others—I’m picking cherries as my #1 fruit for weight loss.
While counting calories may be more accurate than simply “watching what you eat,” it certainly can become a cumbersome chore each day. Beyond that, the results you achieve are much more related to the the types of foods you eat than calories alone, which makes the below superior (and more convenient) “counting” method our go-to technique for accurately and ideally determining the amount of food you should eat each day to support your body transformation goals.
The rule? Count macronutrients, not calories.
You see, there are 3 macronutrients (e.g., protein, carbs, and fat), and a good balance of all 3 of these nutrients is essential to dropping flab and optimally changing your body. (more…)
We’re going to give you a complete step-by-step plan to get bona fide FAT. Yes, that’s right, just follow these 5 steps, and you’re bound to gain weight like clockwork, over and over again! Unfortunately, many reading this article fall victim to one or more of these 5 steps regularly, and that’s exactly why we are sharing these “fat-gaining” principles with you: so you can understand them, recognize them, and AVOID them… unless of course your goal is to pile on the flab!
Step 1 to Get Fat (Guaranteed) - Have “Good Intentions,” But No Plan
You see, many folks have the best intentions. They set out to lose weight because they’re truly sick and tired of how they look and feel. They’re tired of not fitting in to clothes they wore when they were once happier and more self-confident. They’re tired of feeling rundown, and sometimes, downright depressed. So they make a decision that “enough is enough!” and they’re going to do something about it! (more…)
Hey, it’s Josh Bezoni, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been indulging a bit too frequently throughout December—especially this last week. I know, you wouldn’t think a “nutrition guru” like me has his weaknesses, but alas, I’m human just like you.
And to be totally honest, I’ve actually gained 5 pounds this month…not good! But instead of throwing in the towel and gaining a lot more blubber, I’m fighting back by doing these 5 tricks to crush 1000 calories every day this week: (more…)
New research from Cornell University uncovers a powerful insight that will be very helpful to you as you visit buffet table after buffet table this holiday season… if you put it to use. What is it?
