Myth #18: Eating Healthy Food Means You’re Eating Healthily

One of the most frequent complaints I hear is that people are "eating really well" but their body isn't changing.  So I ask what they are eating.  It's things like Orange Juice and Cereal or an English Muffin for breakfast, and "you know, just a little bit of pasta and it was whole grain" for dinner. Sometimes… Continue reading Myth #18: Eating Healthy Food Means You’re Eating Healthily

Myth #17: Electrolytes only matter if you sweat a lot

You've seen the commericals and ads right? Buff bods that are covered in sweat, and the person is drinking guzzling some sports drink. The ad lets you know that you need to replenish your electrolytes. While I don't necessarily think that an expensive, sugary sports drink is the way to go, at least not proactively,… Continue reading Myth #17: Electrolytes only matter if you sweat a lot

Myth #16: You can’t cheat if you want to succeed

I had been going solid for a month, and I was down 8lbs, which was awesome! (Note: 1-2 pounds per week is healthy. You do not need to lose weight any faster than this!)  Then he told me it was time. Time for a...wait for it!...A cheat meal! First, that's a thing? Really?! But second, holy biscuits,… Continue reading Myth #16: You can’t cheat if you want to succeed

I try not to actually make the face palm gesture,… Continue reading Myth #15: As long as you don’t go over your calories, you’re A-OK

Raise Your Glass: York Patty Edition

As I mentioned in my Pumpkin Spice Shake post, I like whey... in theory.  I love that it's a great way to know that I'm getting the protein I need, and an easily digested, complete amino acid profile... and that's super important for not only muscle building and weight loss, but you know, for life.  Amino… Continue reading Raise Your Glass: York Patty Edition

Myth #11: The Type of Protein You’re Eating Doesn’t Matter

One protein is as good as the next, right? As long as you're getting enough, it doesn't matter whether you get your protein from plants or animals? Wrong. Protein is the most important Macronutrient.  Every piece of your body from your skin to your eyeballs to your hair to your muscles is made up of… Continue reading Myth #11: The Type of Protein You’re Eating Doesn’t Matter

Myth #5: The _________ Diet is the Most Effective

If there was a diet bandwagon between 2000-2014, I was probably on it.  I tried everything:  Weight Watchers (where I impressively gained weight), Atkins, The Zone, Best Life, even The Grapefruit Diet.  I did lose some weight on Atkins, but I put it all back on.  The only "diet" that worked for me was The… Continue reading Myth #5: The _________ Diet is the Most Effective
