Action, Art, and the Art of Success

Creating success doesn’t happen overnight; nor does it happen by accident. To be truly successful, you need to find what’s unique about YOU, and how you can use that to create success. A few days ago I returned from trip to the beautiful city of Austin, TX, where I spent the weekend eating, training, and pow-wowing with the RFS Mastermind crew. First, let me say that of all the BBQ I’ve had in my life, Texas BBQ is the best, hands down.

9 Characteristics of Successful Fat Loss Programs

“What’s the best way to lose fat?” This is by far the most common question I get as a fitness coach. Everyone wants to know about the best diet, the best workout plan, or the best supplements. And while I’d love to tell them what those are, I can’t. Because the truth is, there is no “best” anything. Every program or plan is going to work differently for each person. That’s how it goes. But just because different plans work for different people doesn’t mean they don’t share common characteristics. It’s these characteristics that make those plans success. In my latest guest post for MyProtein, I break down the nine characteristics of all successful fat loss plans. How does your program measure up?   Read: “9 Characteristics of Successful Fat Loss Programs” on MyProtein

What Is Intermittent Fasting? Part 1: The Benefits of Taking a Break From Eating

Todays post is going to cover a topic very near and dear to my heart: Intermittent Fasting, or IF as its commonly called. If you haven’t heard about IF, it’s a pretty simple concept. It’s the practice of abstaining from eating for a period of anywhere from 14 to 36 hours. It may sound difficult or scary, but remember you fast every single night while you sleep. IF just requires you to extend that fast by a few hours. In the next two posts Ill be covering many different aspects of IF, including the benefits, the role IF plays in fat loss, the different variations and ways to incorporate them into your life, as well as my experiences with Intermittent Fasting.
