Fitness Resources

I love fitness! Can you tell? LOL I hope this is obvious, but I love to learn more and more about fitness and nutrition. As soon as I started my transformation, I was done… I just wanted more! So that lead me to search out for what I could see as the best information to make my...

Full?

Last week I talked about the folks who start my 1900 calorie fat shredder diet (designed to maximize body fat loss) and say, “I feel like I’m starving all day long!”.  I addressed why that is and what tips they can use to help. But what about the folks who start the...

Dealing with Loose Skin

From time to time I get asked the question about loose skin.  What can be done about it?  Does it get better over time?  Do I have loose skin myself? I just got asked again by Jerry in the TR Suggestion Box. Well, consider this.  I have weighed 310 lbs in my life.  I now weigh nearly 100...

Folks looking to add mass need not worry about the issue of energy balance.  You have the luxury of eating a ton of food to fuel your muscle building, and you get to enjoy all the energy you get from it. Folks at a maintenance level (like I have been for a while now) also don’t...

Deficit or Surplus?

Deficit or Surplus? One of the common questions I get is, “How can I lose fat and build muscle?” It is a great question, but it is not that easy or straight forward. The two goals in that question are actually pretty opposed. One happens best at a calorie deficit, and the other happens...
