Recovering Your Metabolism: Do You Need to Increase Or Decrease Calories (Part II)

We’re going to dive right back into Lucas Serwinki’s article on metabolic damage.  For those who missed Part I you can play catch up HERE.

Recovering Your Metabolism: Do You Need to Increase Or Decrease Your Calories? (Part I)

Today’s guest post comes from personal trainer and strength coach Lucas Serwinski.  Some of you may remember his name from an excellent series of articles he wrote for my site last year titled How Did Your Food Live?

Meathead Fro-Yo (Yo!)

Lisa and I are heading on vacation to the Dominican Republic in 23 days, 17 hours, and 43 minutes (but who’s counting?), and as such have both been “dialing it in” on the nutrition side of things.

It was a… Read more

Another Cholesterol Rant

It’s not something I’m proud to admit it, but up until last week it’s been about eleven years since I’ve stepped foot into a doctor’s office. While I’d like to sit here and say it’s due to some irrational fear – akin to some people’s fear of say, clowns – sadly, it has more to… Read more
