Survive The Holidays And Relax!

(This article appeared in the December 2011 issue of L Magazine...written by me of course!) Tis the season for joy, food, bad weather and flabbiness. You know what else?  It’s the season for every fitness guru and their mama to give you lists for losing weight because the average person gains some obscene amount over the course of 4 weeks. You know the drill because you see it every year. This year is going ...

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. Let’s assume you want to lose weight. - I'm not saying you should lose weight, I'm just using this as an exam ...

L Magazine Column August 2011 – Food Rules

This article appeared in the August 2011 issue of "L Magazine." Two of my favorite foods are apples and broccoli.  I have other foods that I count as “favorites” as well, but they wouldn’t fit well in a column whose focus is helping you become healthier and more fit – unless we could figure out a way to include Peanut Butter Cups! Those 2 foods are my “Go To” foods and they receive that high distinction bec ...

Abs Blaster DVD and Diet Promo

Howdy! I’ve been trying to figure out how I can incorporate the way Nolan crawls into a workout program, but just can’t seem to find a way to throw in a break dancing move. He does ‘the worm’ rather than crawl and it is very entertaining. The kid can get anywhere he wants simply by getting onto his hands and knees, rocking, then pushing forward and flopping onto his stomach – which puts him forward about 4 ...

Easy Weight Loss Solutions

Howdy! What's goin' down in your neck of the woods?  I trust all is well.  Things are rockin' and rollin' here and things in boot camp are awesome as well. Let's venture into the mental woo-woo stuff for a moment... I want to present you with a situation that may sound pretty familiar. You’re fed up with the way you look and want to make a change.  You hate the way your clothes fit, your lack of energy, and ...

Are You A Food Pervert?

Are you a pervert? Before I get any complaints or yelled at, I’m not talking about the type of pervert that will get you in trouble for staring at a woman’s chest or any performing any of the hi-jinks from the movie “Porkies.” I’m talking about Food Perversion. I don’t know if I coined the term or not, but I’m claiming it (and probably going to trademark it!), so don’t steal it! My definition of Food Perver ...

Does Fruit Make You Gain Weight? Should I Stop Eating Fruit If I Want To Lose Weight?

Howdy! What's goin down in your world? I think it's time to discuss a little nutrition and, more specifically fruit. I’ve been noticing a scary trend over the past couple years, and it seems to have only gotten worse lately and that is scare tactics when it comes to diet. Scare tactics are nothing new. They’ve been around for quite some time. I don’t know if this is true or not, but I remember reading that ...

4 Slimming Foods

Are some foods better at helping you lose weight than others? Of course they are! It would be silly to think that all foods are created equal, especially when it comes to slimming and toning your figure. The big “secret” though is that many of the foods being marketed to you are not good, and won’t help you lose weight, because they’re manufactured and processed foods that are made in a factory. Whenever I ...

3 Simple Weight Loss Foods

One of the biggest questions I receive, both in and out of my studio, is “What do I eat if I want to lose weight?” and it’s a great question. I used to get a little cranky when asked that question because it’s a no brainer for me, but now I’m glad when people ask because it means they want to learn and are seeking answers and are ready to lose weight and achieve their Superhero Body. I have a couple guideli ...

Bad vs. Good

I think it’s time for a bit of a mental shift when it comes to nutrition/diet. All too often we tend to focus on the Bad Guys. Millions of books have been sold making certain foods/food groups out to be Bad Guys. Lord knows how many articles have been written (some by me) making certain foods out to be the devil. I think that’s a bad way to go about living a healthy lifestyle (which is really what you’re af ...
