Best Body Fat Scales for 2017

Body Fat Scales and Analyzers If you have read any of my blogs, by now you know I am not a fan of the typical bathroom "weight scale." We get too caught up in trying to lose weight, when in reality we need to be concerned with losing fat and building muscle. In doing this you may never lose a single pound, but instead go down in pant sizes and lose inches off your waist and other areas. This is why we...Read More

The Paleo Method of Eating Clean

The Paleo Method of Eating Clean

Why Method and not Diet? Our society has run the "diet" term into the ground! Anywhere you see the the word "diet" today, chances are there is a scam attached to it.

It is most likely the source to many of your fitness goal frustrations because you associate all your...Read More
