the Walk & Talking The Talk
This article is not for the easily offended or PC minded. It
is an in-your-face, and hopefully humorous, look at the topic
of steroids and how out of touch the medical/scientific community
and the general public can be in regards to the facts about
|KISS : Keep It
The acronym “Keep it simple stupid” or “KISS”,
has been used for decades by the military, business schools,
medical schools, and in countless other areas where unneeded
complexity should be avoided at all costs. This article looks
at how some times nutrition and diet are simply over complicated.
Myths That Must Die!
An irreverent look at the often ridiculous myths that surround
bodybuilding such as "your muscle will turn to fat",
"people who lift weights are gay" etc etc.
|So You Wanna Be a
People that follow my stuff know I generally write about nutrition,
supplements, training, and other topics that are more science
based than subjective topics, such as what is covered in this
article. I decided to shuck my science geek persona, and write
on a topic I know will be helpful to thousands of would be and
wanna be fitness models.
Big Picture of Permanent Weight Loss
For most people reading this article, finding an effective diet
that works most of the time must seem as complicated as nuclear
physics. It’s not, but there are a bewildering number
of choices for diets out there. High fat or no fat? High carbohydrate
or no carbohydrate? Low protein or high protein? To make matters
worse, there are a million variations and combinations to the
above diet scenarios to add to the confusion. It seems endless
and causes many people to throw up their hands in frustration
and give up. In this article I will attempt to change all that.
Myths that Just Won't Die
In this article I look at some of the nutritional myths that
still exist around protein and use science to dispell them.
|Brinks Unified Theory
Any diet that claims calories don't matter, forget it. Any diet
that tells you they have a magic ratio of foods, ignore it.
Any diet that tells you any one food source is evil, it's a
scam. Any diet that tells you it will work for all people all
the time no matter the circumstances, throw it out or give it
to someone you don't like!
|The Simplest Weight
Loss Tips No One Follows
There are some amazingly simple behaviors and strategies we
can all add to our nutritional goals and workout plans that
will have a positive effect. Using my own addiction to Cheez-It’s
as the primary example, I am going to cover a few of these surprisingly
simple yet effective strategies...
|It's All In The Timing:
Pre & Post Workout Nutrition
Most people are aware that nutrient timing is as important as
nutrient composition. In other words, it’s not just what
you eat, but when you eat it that gives optimal results. As
the man says, “Timing is everything.” Consuming
the right foods at the right time can have positive effects
on body composition: which means more muscle and less body fat....
|The role of nutrition
in martial arts, police, military personnel
For a considerable amount of time, nutrition has not played
a prominent role in the life of many martial artists, police,
and military personnel as a means of improving performance.
Top athletes are always looking for an edge. Although the martial
arts are more of a way of life and a life style than a sport
per se, the needs of the martial artist are the same as that
of the elite athlete.This article looks in more depth at how
nutrition is playing a part.
|Whey & Protein Articles
|The Whey It Is
If there is one thing that continues to perplex me, it is the
disparity between how popular whey protein is (thanks in large
part to yours truly) and how much confusion there is regarding
this immensely popular supplement.
|The Whey to Weight
Whey may be able to reduce stress and lower cortisol and increase
brain serotonin levels, improve liver function in those suffering
from certain forms of hepatitis, reduce blood pressure, as well
as other amazing recent discoveries, such as whey’s possible
effects on weight loss, which is the focus of this article...
|The (Partial) Vindication
Of Soy Protein
So why does soy have such a bad reputation among bodybuilders?
On the surface, it would appear that soy protein is pretty lousy
stuff for most athletes. Soy protein has a low BV score of 74.
What does that mean? There are several ways of assessing protein
|Are there Hormones
in Your Whey?
One question that has popped up a few times in my email ‘in
box’ relates to the issue of hormones in whey protein
supplements. Are there hormones in your whey? It’s not
a simple “yes” or “no” answer I am sorry
to say, but the short answer is..
|Fighting Cancer With
Studies on whey demonstrate it's an even better protein supplement
than previously thought. Although whey protein's health benefits
have only recently been elucidated, the use of whey protein
for medicinal purposes has been prescribed since the time of
Relegion of Pre and Post Workout Nutrition
Pre- and post-workout nutrition is all the rage these days,
and for good reason. For some, however, it’s become more
than a science—it’s become their religion, or perhaps
just a place to focus their OCD-like tendencies. Regardless,
people have taken the topic of pre- and post-workout nutrition
to a level that is not justified by the research, or at least
not confirmed by the research that currently exists.
|The game that is the
"Proprietary Blend" Nutritional Supplement
Recently I wrote an article entitled "Terms, Terms, Terms,
An Inside look to buying supplements" which can be found
on the Gurus and Guests section of my private forum. The article
covered many of the misleading marketing terms buyers have to
deal with in an attempt to make informed decisions on the supplements
they spend their hard earned money on. Some of the more potentially
misleading commonly used marketing terms I covered were...
| What's in your creatine:
NOTE: This is an old article now but in it's day shocked the
entire industry to it's core and helped create the safe creatine
products we have today. A shocking report by Will on the impurities
in creatine products.
|Creatine: More than
a sports nutrition supplement
Although creatine offers an array of benefits, most people think
of it simply as a supplement that bodybuilders and other athletes
use to gain strength and muscle mass. Nothing could be further
from the truth.
|Creatine: Not Just
a Sports Nutrition Supplement
In this article, we examine some additional properties of creatine,
such as its effects on growth hormone release, homocysteine
and chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as other important issues
surrounding this supplement, such as its safety.
the undiagnosed epidemic
Is a loss of strength, mobility, and functionality an inevitable
part of aging? No, it’s not. It’s a consequence
of disuse, suboptimal hormone levels, dietary and nutrient considerations
and other variables, all of which are compounded by aging. One
of the greatest threats to an aging adult’s ability to
stay healthy and functional is the steady loss of lean body
mass - muscle and bone in particular.
One of the most common problems faced by strength training athletes
is joint pain. "Oh my shoulder is killing me" or "my
knee has been bothering me for months" or "I have
been living on pain killers to get rid of this ache in my elbow"
are common complaints that can be heard in any gym at any time.
Oddly enough however, this topic is not covered very often in
most bodybuilding/fitness magazines. Maybe the topic is just
not all that "sexy" or "cutting edge," but
if you're one of the thousands of people whose gains in muscle
are being side tracked by joint troubles, then you don't give
a damn about sexy or cutting edge-you just want relief!
