3 High Fat Foods to Eat Regularly?

Do you eat fat? I know the common thought is to cut out fat if you want to lose fat (makes sense in the noggin), even in this day and age where more and more folks are telling you there are healthy high fat foods. I want to make a distinction before we get into this whole high fat thing… High fat does NOT necessarily mean high TOTAL calories. Yes, high fat foods are higher in calories, but that does NOT mea ...

Boot Camp Legs and Butt Exercise Tip (Video)

Do you like lunges? I have a love/hate relationship with the things, as do many of my clients, but I’m a mean and nasty trainer guy and make them do the nasty exercises anyway. They’re too dang good, but I agree that they do hurt.  They make your legs burn and shake, and if you do them enough, make it difficult to walk the next day and that’s a soreness that doesn’t really go away as your fitness increases. ...

A Nutrition Assignment To Follow This Week…

I have a weird and goofy thing I want you to do this week whenever you eat or drink. Ready? I want you to talk to your food – whether it responds is a matter for you and your therapist. In all seriousness (and don’t be offended if you really do see your therapist because your food talks to you), I do want you to talk to your food and drink this week. I want you to ask your food, “If I eat you, how will you ...

Email Q&A – Snack Bars and Weight Loss Resolutions

It’s Saturday and you know what that means? Oh, you don’t?  Well in my house it means…it’s Saturday. I know I’m a boring dude, but we have a 5-year old and 10-month old and it’s January in Nebraska.  Not exactly conducive to living an exciting life! I kid.  I love my life and wouldn’t change it for anything and the fact that Nolan is getting closer to walking everyday scares the bejesus out of me because I ...

3 Evening Snacks

Finding healthy evening snacks can be a tricky thing.

Boot Camp Fusion Workout (Video)

It’s Boot Camp Workout Time!! Over the recent past I have been tinkering with my workout “flow” trying to make it the best and most effective use of your time and I think what I’ve been using lately is pretty sweet. I call it Fusion Conditioning and it’s a great way to burn a ton of calories in a little bit of time, while also working those trouble spots you love to hate, specifically the abs, arms and legs ...

3 Perverted Foods (Get Your Mind Out Of The Gutter…)

(Quick note - If you’re more in the mood for some foods you should be eating, click here and read this list) My sister graduated with her Nurse Practitioner’s degree last Friday and I ate cake. Not only did I eat a piece of cake, but I ate a big honkin’ piece of cake and it was good.  It was really, really good. It was a chocolate cake that was easily 10 inches tall – I’m not kidding – and every few inches ...

3 Easy Slimming Foods

I love me some food.  I really, really loves me some food! However, over the past several months I’ve made it a point to try new things. I’m a big believer in setting and keeping routines, but sometimes you hae to break those puppies and try new things. I can get very boring with my eating – that’s because it’s easy – but I’ve decided to branch out a bit and start trying some new things. There are 3 foods i ...

Ode To Resistance Tubing For Boot Camp Workouts

One of my favorite ways to train - whether in boot camp, my own personal workouts or with clients - is using Resistance tubing.  It's an awesome piece of equipment.  Many folks know it for its use in rehab, but it is incredibly versatile and can, and should, be used in fat loss workout design as well. To show you my love for Resistance Tubing, I decided to write an ode. I have to warn you… I don't like poet ...

Where’s Your Focus?

Howdy! When it comes to getting lean and fit, I have a basic belief – focus on taking positive steps that create good habits rather than attempting to remove negative habits. That may sound overly simple, or bring up thoughts of “No kidding Ed…I knew that!” but stick with me here and let me explain.
