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…

Well my fellow, loyal, Gone Liftin’ readers, the holiday season is right around the corner… we all know what THAT means!! Turkey – stuffing – gravy – corn – butter – HEAVEN!! With the holiday season, regardless how strict and dedicated you think you are, you WILL break. This isn’t a bad thing or something that you should dwell over, too much. But rather, embrace the fact that the chances of overeating are high, and that likely you will have a caveman-like feast, where the only thing standing between you and your food is a proper, clean, eating utensil.

Get your diet in check from first thing in the morning to the moment you hit the sack…

Dieting can be hard! Not so much dieting itself is hard – but it gets pretty damn hard considering all the bullshit information floating around out there that has no valid basis to be floating out there, yet people buy into anything that makes them think dieting can be fun and easy… and magically cure everything!!
