People love to complicate sh*t.

Carbohydrate timing is a perfect example.

Ask twenty different health “experts” or your local gym bro about when the best time to eat carbohydrates is, and you will undoubtedly get twenty different answers.

The Top 5 Nutritional Myths

true-false

We live in the “Age of Information.” 

The entire wealth of human knowledge is literally at our fingertips.

Anything you could ever want to know is just a tap or click away.

And yet it blows my mind that there are still so many uninformed people out there.

While this applies to all subjects, nutritional science is a field in which the propagation of misinformation seems to have gone rampant – almost like a Donald Trump campaign rally.

Healthy Fats, Good Carbs, Clean Protein – Part 1

Labels.

I generally don’t like them because they tend to do more harm than good.

When folks ascribe to a particular ideology or way of thinking, they tend to cease viewing the world in an objective way.

If there’s anything I’ve learned in my short amount of time on this earth, it’s that very seldom are things either completely one way or the other.

The “High Reps For Fat Loss” Myth

I overheard a couple of guys talking the other day while they were working out.

One asked the other, “How many reps should I do?”

The other replied, “It depends on whether or not you want to build muscle or burn fat.”

It was at this point that my eyes began to roll, but I continued to listen to his “expert” advice.

Dieting: The”One Size Fits All” Approach Doesn’t Work

Happy New Year, everyone!

I decided that the very first topic I would tackle in 2015 would be that of DIETING.

This is the time of year where everyone decides to swing from one end of the dietary extreme to the other.

After 2-3 months (or more) of drinking and eating anything and everything placed in front of us, we now decide that it is time to “clean up” our diets for the new year.

Most people don’t know how the hell to go about doing this.

Eating For Muscle Growth And Performance

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post called “Fat Loss Made Easy.”

While the majority of people need to reduce their body fat levels, there are a select few that are looking to gain weight, build muscle, and maximize performance.

Let me be clear.

If you are overweight, don’t even think about going on a mass gaining diet until your body fat levels are in check.

For men, this will be sub 12%

For women, sub 20%.

Fat loss is simple.

It’s simple in that once you realize that it’s hard and takes A LOT of discipline and effort, it actually becomes quite uncomplicated.

You see, most people want an “easy” way out.

Eat Dinner Like A King

One of the biggest dietary myths floating around out there is that you should eat as soon as you wake up, and consume most of your calories in the morning and early afternoon.

Anyone that has ever tried this, however, will tell you that about an hour after eating their chicken breast and steamed broccoli for dinner, they soon find themselves raiding the freezer for that half pint of Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked that they were supposedly saving for “Game of Thrones” on Sunday. #CheatDay
