@dagg0017 I had the same problem two years ago. I competed in the biggest loser contest at my job (the winner got $1,000). I was eating healthy (1500 calories per day), eating 5 times a day, working out once a day every day for the first 2... (more)

sounds like you are eating very few carbs. The "stubborn belly" could be from a ton of things -- one of which is too much cortisol build-up. You may want to consider implementing more rest days to help your body heal.

So I joined a crossfit gym and I love it. It is my new obsession and I try to make it five days a week. I have been going for a month now and although I am seeing results I know that it would be so much healthier for me to change my diet and go... (more)

What are your goals? Strength? Hypertrophy? Longevity? Increasing vO2 max?

I've been doing paleo strict for about 2 1/2 weeks now and I've lost only about a pound a week. I'm happy that I've lost those 2 lbs, don't get me wrong, but I'm just very surprised that after cleaning up my diet so much, I haven't lost more. I... (more)

Thank you all so much. I am happy that I am losing weight, but I definitely agree that my diet could use some revamping. I haven't experienced increased energy yet, but have nearly gotten rid of some chronic head aches and some joint pain I've... (more)

Depends on goals. Wanting to put on weight, hit certain protein marks, don't feel like eating a ton after a workout? Whey is awesome. Once a week, after a massive training session, I'm shooting for 300-350 grams of protein. I'll usually get... (more)

Downfall is an excellent film. The warroom rant has been hacked SO many times. I like the hockey versions best. But the line about Starbucks is pretty funny. It's not clear to me how this offends you personally. But your trainer has the high... (more)
