You Got Chicked! Savageman 70.0

The actual story starts a while back, when I decided to participate in a shorter race distance than an Ironman.

Common Weight Loss Myths

I have people approach me almost everyday seeking my advice about losing weight, or they have started started a diet and exercise regimen, but seem to have reached a plateau in their efforts.  I know the topic of weight loss is always a confusing one.

Fall Back Into Fitness

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, it's now time to fall back into your fitness routine - no more excuses.  Kids are back at school, vacations are over, and work schedules have gotten back to normal.  Holiday engagements will be on hold until November, so we only have two months before we are immersed in the holidays.

Protein shakes are famous these days. There are green ones, red ones, chocoate one, vegan ones and whey ones. But if you are loading them up with lots of fruit, protein powder, yogurt, oils and everything else, you are probably pretty frustrated and gaining weight. A typical shake has 20-25 grams of protein, which can be 1/3 to 1/2 protein requirement for the day for alot of people. At the end of the day, calories do count. Sorry guys! Most people are taking in too much fat and sugar for in their shakes, more than enough for the entire day. They are meal replacments typically, not snacks.

Keep Up Summer’s Healthy Habits

As the warm, sunny days of summer wane, you might find it more challenging to eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. Fresh-picked produce is less accessible, and autumn tempts with comfort foods and holiday goodies. Don’t let cooler weather and overcast days become your excuse to make unhealthy eating choices. Stick with your nutritious habits during the next few months to maintain a healthy weight, prevent colds and illness, and stay energized through the fall and winter.
