Not Mixing Up The Foods You Eat

Sure, dieting involves eating the proper, clean, and natural foods. But let’s face facts – eating the same stuff day in and day out gets MUNDANE!! It gets psychologically taxing knowing you have to eat the same bland food every day. Though it’s part of the physique game, things don’t always have to be so damn boring and shitty… Continue Reading…

In a perfect world, everyone would be lean, tone, muscular, athletic, and so on and so forth. Let’s face facts people – the less fat we have, the better we look, and the happier we are. There are those “activist” types out there that will say shit like “as long as you’re happy it doesn’t matter what you look like blah blah blah…” Duly noted. The fact of the matter is, not one sane person residing on planet Earth, will argue the fact that a toned body with minimal body fat, doesn’t look better than a body with unsightly fat on it. Not to offend anyone, but get real, people! Anyhow, our purpose here is not to mock the people that claim being overweight and out of shape is ok as long as you’re happy, but rather to touch upon a few common mistakes most people (men and women alike) make or run into when on the quest for their dream physiques… Continue Reading…

I’m sure most of us have heard of spot reduction. Spot reduction was huge back in the day with old-school bodybuilders, like Arnold and those dudes. The idea is that the more annihilation of a muscle in a certain area of your body you incur, the more fat you will strip from that body part area. It sounds kinda silly, doesn’t it? For many years, the advanced scientists and lifters thought this to be something beyond broscience. This was on another level of lack of education involving the human body. We laughed – we cried – we judged. It was “proven” over and over again that reducing fat in a particular body part area was not possible, as fat reduction occurs systematically within the body as a whole, not just the areas you choose. We sure would LOVE to be able to reduce fat just in a body part that is lacking striations and what-have-you, but no such luck… Or is there? Well, I dono, let’s read on and find out… Continue Reading…

Eat Fat, Get Fit

November 12, 2013 — Leave a comment

Seriously?! Seriously!! The one disservice the fitness and nutrition industry has done that stands out more than the rest, is demonizing the consumption of fats – saturated fats, primarily. Ask anyone who is on a diet, and the lowest macro they usually consume (or don’t consume, rather) is almost always fat. But whyyyyyy??? Fat consumption is not only essential for your body to turn on its metabolic furnace to burn fat, but it just so happens that the brain THRIVES on fat, well being that the human brain is 60% fat and all…

But there is no possible way that all these years we have been conditioned to avoid saturated fats, were all for naught… could it be? ‘Tis ’tis. Saturated fat, when controlled, not only could be consumed, but SHOULD be consumed. This does not mean your entire fat intake throughout the day should consist of saturated fats. But avoiding them every chance you get, is actually a pretty good way to increase your chances of heart disease, not decrease them. Say whaaaa?! It’s true! In this piece, we are gonna discuss, and even show you, why people who consume more saturated fats are actually leaner, healthier, and have significantly less chances of heart disease. We found this interesting article called 6 Charts That Show How The War On Fat Was A Gigantic Mistake, and it’s fuckin’ awesome! We liked it, needless to say… Continue Reading…
