I attended FitExpo 2013 in Santa Clara, CA this weekend and had a great time talking with so many positive people such as Herb Dean (UFC Referee), Bella Falconi (Fitness model), and many others. The bodybuilding community is full of motivation, inspiration and support. Three people I was fortunate enough to speak with were Phil Heath (Mr. Olympia 2011 & 2012), Greg Plitt (top fitness model) and Jennifer Delgado (NPC Competitor).  Below are a few gems from these professionals that I thought might help others achieve their health and fitness goals.

Research published in the Journal Of Clinical Endocrinology( a fancy term for hormones) and Metabolism found that a lack of sleep can impact your brain in such a way that pushes you towards the pantry, not away from it.

 We all need to sleep better. Me included. Better sleep will help with recovery, muscle growth and fat loss. Heard it before.... correct? But how do we go about it? This is how.... 1. Exercising in the morning around 7am will help you spend 75% more time in deep sleep and let you cycle through the four stages of sleep more often. What are the 4 cycles? I don't know but all I know is a sleep like a log after a early morning training session.

 You know you need between 6-8 hrs. of quality sleep each night to help your recovery from your awesome training session today. Here are some foods that will help you get there. 1.Almonds: A handful contains muscle-relaxing magnesium and sleep-inducing tryptophan, which increases the brain's level of feel-good serotonin. 2.Skim milk: Mom was right -- a warm glassful will help you sleep better. The milk's tryptophan has a sedating effect.

1) Eat a Smart Breakfast. Most people load up on carbohydrates and simple sugars for breakfast. Cereal, pastries, smoothies and juice are all poor choices when it comes to starting your day off right. Center your breakfast around protein and healthy fat, and you'll have energy for hours.

I cannot begin to describe how beneficial a proper amount of sleep can help you progress through your strength training program.  I’ve always been one to just get by with a few hours of sleep per night even when I knew more sleep was the way to go.  I was felt like I had too much to do before I went to bed or I could catch up on sleep during the weekend…wow, was I wrong.
