How to Eat Out on a Die...

Sure, it’s easy to stick to the nutrition plan as long as you are some sort of freak that cooks every meal and has nothing but time in the world, right?  But some of us actually have LIVES and can’t spend 4 hours per day cooking, and we are on the run a lot and don’t...

Weight loss: Weathering...

Nutrition Tracking

Vegan Meal Plans

Vegan meal plans are something I still get requests for pretty regularly. I did a full 90 days of a vegan diet before. It was a great learning experience, and it taught me a lot about how to eat. I still like some of the meals and recipes I used over the 90 days. But I have definitely...

Getting Ripped and Dair...

So what’s my take on “DAIRY”??  For those of you who have followed my diets, you’ll notice I never drink milk, and I hardly ever have cheese.  I do, however, use whey protein every day (which is a protein that comes from milk), and I eat yogurt or greek yogurt...

Tuna and mercury? How much is too much? Is it hurting me, my progress, my fitness? This is actually the first post idea from the teamRIPPED Suggestion Box I posted. It came in from two guys. Ian H. and Matt O. Both asked roughly the same question: How concerned should we be about the...

Measuring Weight Loss P...

Measuring weight loss progress can be tough at times. And actually this title may be misleading. Most people think weight loss progress is only the number on the scale. If the number you read on the dial between your feet each morning is going down, you’re a success. If that needle...

I am fortunate in that my day job does not require me to travel all that often. When I do, it’s usually for a long weekend – 3 or 4 days at the most. And I always know the trip is coming well in advance and I can plan accordingly. What does planning accordingly mean? It means...
