Super foods and convenience are two things that make health foods the most valuable nowadays, it seems. I love supporting small scale companies and health movements as much as the next guy as do I love shopping around stores such as Whole Foods, but to be bluntly honest: THIS STUFF IS FRIGGIN’ EXPENSIVE!!!
Juicing and the importance of the alkaline/acid connection I use my juicer 2 to 3 times per week to easily consume an abundance of important raw nutrients. Drinking your fruits and vegetables in a concentrated form is wonderful! Each and every single one of us needs to consume some raw sources of food daily and juicing provides that.
Maybe you've heard that statement before, but what does it mean? It simply means that it takes a lot longer to burn a certain number of calories exercising than it takes to eat the same number of calories. For instance, it takes a 150lb person approximately 1 hour to burn ~500 calories, and that varies greatly depending on how hard you're working out. In 15 minutes, you can eat a Big Mac which has approximately 550 calories and blow your workout out of the water. Not to mention the sodium and fat content.

Traveling, a necessary evil. Eating right, also necessary and not so evil. We are all too familiar with the pangs [difficulties] of eating well while one is on the road, or at the airport. Not all of us have time to prepare our food for the day, so we are left to find good food choices in the quickest way possible. That usually involves fast food and/or some kind of processed pre-packaged food.
I've been faced with this dilemma on several occasions.
Foods that increase inflammation will increase your joint pain and delay your recovery. These include:
1. Trans fat (the WORST fat there is)
3. Processed foods
4. Gluten (for gluten-sensitive people)
5. Dairy (for dairy-sensitive people)
6. Alcohol (even your glass of red wine)
When it comes to food, diet, nutrition, fads, it can become all a little bit to confusing. We are overwhelmed with contradictory information. What was good for you today, can be bad for you tomorrow. Keeping that in mind here, are 3 food rules to make your decisions simpler.
We need to bust myths because of all the noise and confusion of what is good or bad for you. Here are my top 3.
1. Energy drinks are less harmful than soda- A 16-ounce can of Red Bull or Monster delivers as much as 280 calories of pure sugar, which is about 80 calories more than you’d find in a 16-ounce cup of Pepsi. Wow.

I hear people complain about not getting the results they desire from the gym. They work out like demons and yet, they don't feel like they are reaping the rewards for all their hard work. This prompts me to ask them "What is your diet like?", and that's usually when I get the "I know, I can eat better" or "It's been good lately" or "I eat good". That's when I become a little more curious and I ask them to walk me through a typical daily meal plan.
