The Myth Of 1 Thing

I'm sure you've seen ads like this before: "Cut out this 1 food group and watch the pounds melt away." Why do we see ads like these so often? Because advertisers know they work. They hit a psychological hot button. Harsh truth: There's no 1 thing that's going to transform your body and health. If it were that easy, no one would be obese. No one would have type 2 diabetes. No one would have heart disease.

“You Can’t Out Train A Bad Diet” Doesn’t Mean “Training Doesn’t Work For Weight Loss”

2023-09-07T16:20:53-04:00By |Exercise & Fitness, Weight Loss & Fat Loss|

"You can't out train a bad diet." Basically, this trite saying is trying to convey the idea that if you don’t control your food intake and balance it with your activity, so you sustain a caloric deficit, you won’t lose weight regardless of how much you exercise. Re-stated this way, in the context of energy balance, I don’t think anyone would disagree. However, I'm here to explain how this phrase has gone wrong...

Do Mobile Apps Work For Weight Loss? What’s The Evidence?

2023-08-04T11:55:46-04:00By |Weight Loss & Fat Loss|

Despite the popularity of mobile apps, there hasn't been much research on whether they are effective for weight loss over the long term. In addition, because the features of different apps can vary so much, including food, weight, step, and sleep tracking, that has made it difficult for researchers to conclude what is driving their effectiveness when they do work. A recent study analyzed eight apps, including MyFitnessPal, Calorie King, FitBit and five others to try to answer this burning question: Do apps really improve long term weight loss or not?...

Does Fasted Cardio Burn More Fat? (An Update)

2023-01-28T13:05:24-05:00By |Cardio Training, Weight Loss & Fat Loss|

Does fasted cardio burn more fat? 20 or 30 years ago, almost everyone in fitness and bodybuilding thought so. You can count me in that group. I was a 1990s and 2000s era competition bodybuilder and I did a lot of fasted cardio first thing in the morning. Back then I also recommended cardio on an empty stomach to my training clients for burning more fat. Today the research is clear: Fasted cardio works, but it doesn't work better than fed cardio.

2022-11-16T08:30:22-05:00By |Weight Loss & Fat Loss|

When it comes to fat loss while maintaining or building muscle, is there such a thing as a perfect diet plan? If so, is it possible that the bodybuilding-style diet, which has been around since at least the 1990s and probably long before that is still the best fat loss diet, despite countless other diets being available today? If so, why? If not what are the downsides of bodybuilding diets? If "it depends," what does it depend on?...
