New Podcast with Iraka Nutrition

So a bit of a deviation from the planned followup to last weeks Carbohydrate Classifications article since I couldn’t get my head around the topic of GI and GL for this week. Thankfully, a podcast I did with Juma Iraki of Iraki Nutrition was published today so I’ll cop out and link to it instead.

Fat Loss Supplements

There are absolutely compounds that have been shown to have some effect on one or another component of fat loss. Some increase energy expenditure, some help to blunt appetite, some do both. None of them can or will ever make up for a proper diet and exercise program and at most they add only a small amount to the overall results. Absolutely none of them are required for fat loss but they may be useful.

The Best Diet – Book Teaser

One of the most common questions I see/get is “What is the best diet?” as if there could be any single dietary approach that can possibly be appropriate for all people, all situations, all contexts and all environments. It would be like asking “What’s the best car?” without the understanding that the answer depends on the situation. The best car for a family with kids is not the same best car for a male trying to impress women.

New Ultimate Diet 2.0 and Stubborn Fat Loss Solution Package

So since I seem intent on making the Two-A-Day Training for the Weight Room Series take a month to complete (even longer than usual for a series this short), I’m now going to tell you about a new combination product of mine.  I call it the Ultimate Leanness Package and it includes two of my […]

Biggest Loser Feedback

Since people are going to continue pestering me for the details of that on the forum until I write it up, but since I don’t have time to day, this Biggest Loser Feedback, sent to me by a guy who was on the show is a bridge article in the sense that it gives some indication of what the Biggest Loser contestants go through during the show. If nothing else, I hope it provides a look at how I don’t think the obese beginner sholud be trained but I’m getting ahead of myself. Wait until Friday (and probably next Tuesday if I don’t miss my guess).

Information vs. Application

This little article is being driven a bit by someone who is either trolling my comments (badly) or just really really really dumb. His comments have basically been ‘reading about ur dogs is boring, pls post more information about fat loss’. I also got one that said ‘pls post more fat loss info, I gained weight over X-mas’. Like I said, trolling or stupid as hell; it doesn’t matter which and often the line between the two is very very thin.

Does the Training Determine the Diet or the Diet Determing the Training?

And since I’m a bit emotionally exhausted from the last week and a half of updates about the dogs, I’m actually going to try to keep this a bit short. The question I want to address today is this: Does the diet determine the training or does the training determine the diet? This isn’t really a direct question that comes up anywhere, but it is ultimately an issue that needs addressing as I hope you’ll soon see.

Tom Venuto’s Holy Grail Body Transformation Program – Product Review

But today I want to talk about Tom’s new product/project which he’s given the (somewhat gag inducing) title of The Holy Grail Body Transformation Program. By ‘holy grail’, as you can see in the subtitle on the cover graphic above, Tom is referring to that commonly desired goal of gaining muscle and losing fat at the same time.

Fasted Cardio and Fat Loss – Q&A

This is probably one of the most commonly asked questions which is why it’s worth addressing. It’s worth keeping in mind that this idea usually comes out of the bodybuilding subculture, usually contest bodybuilders who, assuming their diet is working properly, are getting towards the low-end of body fat levels. And the short-answer to your question is that the body fat of the person is going to be the main determinant of whether doing cardio fasted in the morning is important or not.

The Bodybugg and GoWear Fit

And today I want to look at something that, while not exactly ‘new’ (it’s been around for a few years at least) certainly has a lot of interest and questions about it. And that is the Bodybugg/GoWearFit. Now strictly speaking, both of these devices are different, but they are both made by the same company. And are essentially the same device. So far as I can tell the biggest difference is that the GoWearFit (hereafter GWF) uses slightly different software than the Bodybugg but, for all practical purposes, I’m going to consider them the same device. This is what it looks like.
