2 Key Nutrition Tips to Lose Weight
Following some kind of diet to lose weight will fail 9 times out of 10! Why is that? Well, the main reason is because following a diet is basically in essence following a complex system of change. Starting something completely new from what we're used to comes as a shock/radical shift to our lifestyle habits, and ultimately presents too many items to change all at once. The secret to achieving the weight-loss and health goals you desire is to take your time and slow things down. This zen mantra is known as: less is more. By doing less, you'll be able to actually follow and stick to the game-plan.

I was exercising regularly, but my idea of training was quite at odds with the reality of being healthy and fit. I was focused purely on putting on size, which ultimately led to me being fat and inflamed (not practicing what I was preaching). The journey to become...

All Movements Create Physical Imbalances
All physical activity inevitably contributes to some sort of physical imbalance.

You are What you Eat: Food Matters
Our body is made up of approximately 100 trillion cells. As part of our metabolism, these cells constantly break down and rebuild. In fact, over time, the organs and tissues within our body are completely replaced as old cells break down and new cells form.
