Don’t be blind and see through the la-bull.. Hey everybody! All of you know that I am a preacher when it comes to clean, healthy eating. My question to all of you is: how much thought do you put into what you eat? Really, think about it.

Fall is my favorite season, but the change in weather and daylight can throw your health and fitness routine out the window. Don't let the cooler season get the best of you. Lazy days of Summer are behind us and the busy hustle and bustle of Fall is here! Between work, the holidays, grocery shopping, errands, etc., it's easy to push exercise to the bottom of the list. It should be just as much a priority as any other appointment you have. Put exercise on the calendar!

Here's what I know about Labels on our food, they are deceiving, they tell you half-truths, and if you can't read more than half of the label, don't eat it!

Because companies know that you are looking for certain things and when letters are in bold they stand out more and your eyes naturally skip over anything that is NOT bold. So, you miss all the "bad" things.

 It’s Sunday morning, and typically on Sundays I do all my grocery shopping for the week and plan my meals out. That way I can stay focused on my fitness goals and save a little money as well. During my grocery shopping adventure I couldn’t help but notice all the people that were walking up and down the aisles trying to figure out what healthy foods to buy while attempting to read the nutrition facts some of which I still have a hard time reading.

We all have frustrations/stresses of everyday life that get in the way sometimes, but some of us don't realize that they are a HUGE part of our successes in and out of the gym. Maybe our day didn't go as planned or we were happy when we left the house and then someone or something made it switch, almost suddenly. Those little things can creep up on us and STORE FAT! Yes, that's right, our frustrations and stresses cause us to store fat. As if we needed anymore, right?

 Have you ever wondered why we have food cravings and why people battle with making good food choices?  Well researchers have discovered a critical link between the unhealthy connection between food and addiction- Dopamine.   Dopamine is the neurotransmitter associated with reward and pleasure.  Cocaine, heroin, and sugar all stimulate the dopamine transmitter that triggers cravings.    When we are about to eat 90% of the dopamine neurons in the Ventral Tegemental Area of the brain are stimulated.   The VTA transmitters branch out to other p

Eating less processed foods is going to give you more energy and help you maintain a healthy weight.  The more nutrient dense foods you consume the less high-calorie, low nutrion foods you will eat.   Go ahead and eat some pizza...can you make the pizza at home using high quality whole foods rather than purchasing a frozen or fast food pizza?  Focus on the quality of the ingredients and putting high-nutrition foods i
