Easy Foods for Weight L...

Easy foods for weight loss can be found all around you. Most are pretty common, ordinary foods. You don’t have to have a HUGE budget or be a professional chef to cook for weight loss. Easy Foods for Weight Loss Truth be told, this title is a little misleading. You know what foods...

TR Suggestion Box ̵...

A couple weeks ago now I posted about the TR Suggestion Box. One thing I said I was going to use that suggestion box for was creating a post on some (hopefully quicker) Q & As. Keep those comments and questions coming. There have been some really great ideas and topics brought up and...

Tuna and Mercury

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...

Coach Wayne wants your ...

TeamRIPPED seems to have it all! I have been working hard at providing you guys and gals great information since July of 2010!!! I’ve tried to cover everything anyone would need to have the absolute best transformation. Program reviews, TONS on nutrition, supplements, gear, mindset,...

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...

Common Nutrition Tracki...

I get a lot of questions about nutrition tracking! And that is a good thing. You want to be accurate and precise when you track your nutrition. Having accurate nutrition tracking is the only way to really know what you are eating and how that is effecting your results. You are controlling...

Nutrition School: Weigh...

Weight and fat loss help! I know so many of you come to teamRIPPED for just that. And teamRIPPED already has tons of resources about weight and fat loss help. But with a new year and new members of teamRIPPED joining every day, it’s time we went back to Nutrition School. Weight and...

Strawberry Shakeology: ...

Strawberry Shakeology! That’s right a NEW Shakeology flavor. Released on a Team Beachbody Coaching broadcast (the January Surge), Carl Daikeler announced another new flavor of Shakeology — the whey based Strawberry Shakeology! You got a little teaser about Strawberry...

P90X3 Nutrition Guide

The P90X3 Nutrition Guide keeps adapting from P90X and P90X2. With our X3 Battle of the RIPPED Challenge coming up on Jan 6th, we need to have a good nutrition plan. I will be giving you a run down of all the aspects of P90X3 as we get through this week and into the next. I have been...

Thanksgiving teamRIPPED...

Remember option #2 from the Weekend Update on Friday? This is how you can plan ahead and have a great Thanksgiving while staying on track. Fat Shredder? On Thanksgiving? Are you crazy coach? Maybe a little, but why throw away all the work you did at the start of the week on one Thursday...

Simple Math

If your car gets 20 miles per gallon and you drive 40 miles, how much gas do you need to keep your tank full?  If you said 2 gallons, you are right!  What if you only put in 1 gallon?  You will be at a gasoline DEFICIT.  And if you repeat that every day, what MUST be the result? ...

Whey Protein Types: Wha...

Whey protein is what most people think about when they think about supplements for muscle. And with good reason! Protein is so critical for building and maintaining muscle. You can get protein from a lot of sources: meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, nuts, and even plants. What makes a...

Traveling While Working...

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...

Cheat Meals and P90X

Many of you are just starting your workout program and wondering if you should “allow yourself a cheat meal”.  Many of you are already going through the program and have already made a choice about cheat meals.  Let me talk with you about this decision and it’s consequences. There...

Substitute for Shakeolo...

Two of the most common questions I get about Shakeology are: “What can I use as a substitute for Shakeology?” and “Why is it so expensive?” These are good questions. As you know, I always try to give you all my honest feedback on every product, whether good or bad....

Common Diet Temptations

Diet temptations seem to target us all. While sweets and candy may be the the downfall for some, others may feel that they are putting up a fight against food every night as they sit on the couch and unwind. Whatever temptation is hardest for you… let me tell you, they are common...

Shakeology Recipes

Shakeology is what I’ve started my day off with every day for well over 3 years now.  These days, I rotate between Vanilla and Chocolate.  To be honest, most days I crave the Vanilla in the morning, and if I do a second Shakeology in the evening I go with Chocolate.  If you have...

The Ups and Downs of We...

It’s been a while, but did you know that I lost nearly 25 lbs. during my first month of P90X? Not bad, huh?  I was KILLING IT! But did you know that I only lost another 8 lbs. the entire second month?  Was I slacking off?  No way!  In fact, I actually did BETTER the second...

Free Shakeology Samples

Shakeology is a product I’ve used EVERY DAY for well over 3 years now, and I absolutely can’t go without it!  There are a lot of products and supplements out there, but nothing as balanced and complete as Shakeology.  It gives you protein, healthy carbs, vitamins, minerals,...

IIFYM If It Fits Your M...

IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) is a popular eating protocol you may hear about as you interact with Beachbody and fitness. It is not a diet, although you can treat it as one. It’s more of a philosophy on eating and tracking your nutrition. You may recall I recently talked about...

Net Carbs

Net carbs can really mess with your head and your nutrition plan! Countless food companies tout them as the greatest way to track your carbs. Be careful… it is true that all carbs are not created equal, but I don’t think tracking only net carbs is always the answer. What are...

P90X Endurance Maximize...

P90X Endurance Maximizer Sample Diet - it’s finally here! Just a few weeks ago, I posted that I would be completing a sample diet for the P90X Endurance Maximizer plan. I moved my calorie goal to 3000 calories and used MyFitnessPal to track for two weeks. If you’ve made it...

You’re better tha...

The P90X Nutrition Guide has a meal plan and a portion plan.  For those who don’t like the specific meals spelled out in the nutrition guide (which is most of us!!) there is the handy dandy portion plan where we can eat what we choose but fit it into the little check-boxes so...
