Episode 315: The Best Diet Plan You Can Go On

11/14/2017
More
After I put my son to bed I often come down to my little home office to get a little more work done before I put myself to bed. Usually I save mindless admin tasks for this time because I have trouble focussing on anything that is deep and meaningful and I can’t do anything that requires research of any sort because then I might end up on youtube watching videos, that don’t do anything to move my mind or life forward. Actually, for the most part not only do they not help me move forward,...

Episode 313: Endings Bring New Beginnings on Reflection and Meditation

10/23/2017
More
I’ve had the opportunity to reflect a lot over the past few months about what it means to change and redirecting my priorities, and I’ve had to look back at why I do certain things out of habit or in other words how did I create a habit the way that I did, and what were the steps I took. And the truth is this is how it happened, I said this is important to me, then I set up my life or my environment in a way that supported that change, until it became a full habit. I recently...

I'm a really skinny guy, always have been, 6' 145 lbs, high metabolism/high energy. So I'm naturally skinny plus I mountain bike/run regularly. This spring/summer I worked canadian tree planting in BC which if you don’t know is basically hiking and throwing a shovel for 8 hours a day planting 1,000+ trees a day, 6 days a week. It's the most intense work I've ever done. Everyone who does it gets in great shape and loses weight, for me I couldn’t eat enough to keep up with it. Fast forward...

I have a client that I’ve been training for a few years now and just this past summer she’s taken up running and she’s improved a lot, at the beginning of the summer she was doing 2 or 3 minutes of running then 1 to 2 minutes of walking to complete 5km, but with her hard work and consistent training she was or is I guess able to run 5km in a row without stopping. However the weather is starting to become a little less pleasant, so she’s started running on the treadmill, which was going...

Episode 309 : Changing How You Look at Goal Setting

10/9/2017
More
I’ve done a few episodes about goal setting usually under the premise that goals in and of themselves are more or less a waste of time, at least in the standard way that most people think about goals - I want to lose 40 lbs. in 6 months or I want to be able to do 10 push-ups in 10 weeks. I know that this flies in the face of what most other personal trainers, health coaches and self-help gurus might say, that a goal needs to be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and timed or more...

I overworked out. I pushed myself way too far than i should have in weight training. Now i'm feeling quite broken. But I'm currently on a cut so I'm tracking my calories and keeping them low. Should I eat more today? Would it help my recovery? Or do I just have to deal with it. I’m not talking about more protein to "build more muscle". But more calories for recovery. Cutting and confused Recently I have taken up cycling in an attempt to lose weight. This and just eating less is...

Episode 306 : When trying to lose weight, do you add extra calories to account for exercise?

When trying to lose weight, do you add extra calories to account for exercise? For some context, I'm 22 year old female trying to lose weight. I downloaded MyFitnessPal and entered in my stats. I was given 1750 calories to work with and my macros I split to 40/30/30 for Carbs/Protein/Fat. My question is, since there is an activity option to enter in your exercises, are you supposed to enter in your workouts and eat the extra calories? Are those designed to fit in your plan to lose "x"...

Episode 305 : Does a Ketogenic Diet Help or Hurt Your Endurance?

9/25/2017
More
This isn’t a must read episode for The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance, it’s more of a review of a research article the book cited. That’s right there was a citation that I thought was questionable so I tracked down the original study and decided to critically analyze it to see if what the authors were saying was true and if this was a legitimate study that I could take seriously. The line in the book that got me questioning the citation was this, that when elite cyclist...

In order to get stronger you have to progressively lift heavier weight, there’s no way around it, however lifting progressively heavier weight has it’s limits, as in you can only become so strong before you will start to become injured or your strength will plateau, if these types of things didn’t happen people would be able to become infinitely stronger, but we know this isn’t the case because even after years of training everyone still has their limits and world records are often held...

Danica - What kind of training do I have to do to be able to make more distance while swimming and hold my breath for longer times under water? I want to be able to swim longer and stronger. Too Extreme - When I go to the cottage with my family we like to take the boat out and go wakeboarding, tubing, and generally have fun on the water. It tends to burn for a few days afterward so we’re definitely getting some good arm exercise - but how much is too much? It’s a lot of fun but I’m...

I just got back from a ‘vacation’ in beautiful British Columbia, I have to put vacation in air quotes because for the most part it didn’t feel that way. We were there for a whole week, but social activities, family get together’s and a wedding right in the middle of the trip left us crammed end to end with very little in the way of free time to relax let alone workout or formally exercise, this meant I had to be creative in doing my exercises with the cramped schedule and no equipment....

Reaping Rewards Rob - When it comes to everyday life and motivating myself to push to get something done, I like the idea of using a reward system - where I treat myself to something I like when I succeed, as it works to make me want to get that thing done. Is there a way I can apply something like that to weight loss? It just feels counter-productive to treat myself to something if that’s going to add more calories. Long Walks on the Beach - I just came back from vacation and found...

Have you ever heard this expression, ‘Everything in moderation, except moderation.’ I’ve heard this expression several times and I don’t know where it comes from or who started it, but the first time I heard it I agreed with it and thought - you know everything should be done in moderation, but then I heard it again in a slightly different context and decided I didn’t like it as much and now I’ve been thinking about it for several years (I know I’m a bit weird like that, but sometimes...

Last week I made this huge giant salad. I used spinach as the base, with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers from our garden and then I put some olives cashews, hemp and chia seeds to top it all off with some balsamic vinaigrette. Of course, what I intended to be a modest lunch salad quickly turned into a giant beast of a salad, but I felt up to the challenge and started eating it with the intent of finishing the whole thing, but halfway through my son Cooper started to cry and I had to...
