The battle for lean - My struggle

I've never been really lean, it's always been a struggle. getting down to a small waist has always meant losing muscle for me. Gaining size is no issue, it's just that when I pound the food, fat quickly follows. If you look at my bio, you can see that I have had a problem with weight in the past, and to get it off, paleo/primal has been my rock.Recently I tried Advocare, (for the blog - article soon). When going down that path, I had hoped Advocare would be a magic bullet, that would get me to that extra level of lean I have always wanted. Sadly, Advocare was not the answer, not even close.Not wanting to stay with the satus quo, I began Eat To Perform a couple of weeks back. I wanted to bash them today when I looked at myself in the mirror. Gaining nearly two inches on my waist and looking like the stay puff guy in the mirror is not what I was after. I wanted to bash them bad, but after reviewing myfitness pal food log, and what I ate during my rest days the past two weeks, I find the fault with me, not their program.*Note to self - You won't get where you want to be doing what you just did! #bilderz #plutoniumblack

What others see.... Junkie2. The Hat: West Coast Choppers, chosen because when I got up at 5:15 AM it was what I grabbed in the dark. What others see - Thug3.

Dieting with coffee - Is Caffeine Good or Bad for Weight Loss?

1438718_40762354Freeimages.jpg

We all know coffee's been one of the main subjects of discussion when it comes to its influence on weight gain or actually losing weight. And somehow, no matter how seriously we took every other little thing we read about dieting, we simply couldn't give up coffee. And why would we? It's tasty, its rich smell is the best smell in the world in the morning, it keeps us energetic and... well, we just love it!

Are sugary drinks keeping you fat?

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_BilderzSugaryDrinks1.jpg

Most of the people I train fail to see real results until they move away from sugary drinks. When asked if they drink them,most answer no! Then out of the gym bag comes an energy drink, sports drink or something similar. Most of the drinksout there, including fruit juices contain a bunch of added sugar. That sugar is keeping you fat.The best alternative is plain old water, but many people can't handle that. Another alternative is to plaesome fresh fruit slices in the water for a little flavor. If that doesn't cut it and you HAVE to have youdaily beverage, maybe it's time for a healthier alternative.Check out this article with my reccomendations.

Exercise alone wont work and neither does diet without exercise.

Bilderzshapedeserve3.png

Getting the best "YOU" requires both exercise and diet. Sadly most people think that they can work their way into the body they wantand when that doesn't happen they quit. If you fall into this group, work out consistently, and still fail time and time againyou NEED to make some changes. First you need to set realistic goals to keep you on track. Next you need to fix your eating habits. If you have tried to eat clean, and have fallen off the wagon more times that you can count, supplements may be the answer. Readthis article for more information.What do you do when your to busy to eat right all the time?See you on the beach.Lance

What do you do when you're to busy to eat right all the time?

BilderzLandingAdvocare1.png

I am NOT a big supplement person. In fact, I believe most people shouldn't take any supplements until they have changed their diets and have begun to workout consistently (consistently means 3 months ore more). It is only after those changes are made, and people are still having trouble getting good daily nutrition, that I’d recommend supplements.

How I am choosing to simplify my diet for success

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_zonetray.jpg

As someone who wears many, many, hats, it is not always easy to keep fit when having to juggle everything. Diet is one thing that I have always struggled with. I'd also say that it is probably the main area that keeps most people from reaching their fitness goals.I am a prime example of someone who gave it their all in the gym and didn't see true results until I changed the way I ate. The problem is that most diets are not sustainable. In my opinion, most diets are so restrictive as to what you can and cannot eat, that they actually make you worse off than if you had never started them.Why? Simply, you starve yourself when following them, then when you can't hang in there any longer, you quit and binge eat to have everything you couldn't eat before.I am so guilty of this. I've tried strict Paleo and have been hardcore about it. I've done the detox, cleared out the cupboards. Followed it to the letter and have seen great results, but not the ultimate results I wanted. I always felt a little sluggish and tired in the gym. This was especially true when I upped my training for competitions.  The solution given for being tired was always "eat more fat". Avocados were my go to source, and while this seemed to work a bit, I never felt super energized. Then to feel full I would eat way more than I should have. Because of this I never got rid of those trouble spots on my stomach and sides.

Another successful FTF Affiliate Challenge is in the bag and this year didn’t disappoint. The WOD’s this year were a unique change compared to previous years. Not a pull-up in sight the first day, and no shuttle runs, but plenty of deadlifts, shoulders to overheads, plus a couple crazy twists. The workouts were a break from the norm and forced athletes to use their heads. On workout two, there was a 1K Meter row buy in before the real WOD began. After your row, you began an AMRAP of 5 deadlifts, three pistols each leg, then twenty double-unders. The time for the workout was set at 10 min, so it was short, but you had to have a game plan. Athletes had to use their heads here, because if they went to strong on the row, they’d be gassed for the AMRAP. If they went to slow, there was no way they’d get in enough rounds to get a great score.
