“To know oneself, one should assert oneself.” – Albert Camus I’ve written in a prior post my thoughts on where supplementation fits in to my “3 pillars” approach to health, fitness and wellbeing.  I’ve also discussed the pros, cons and limitations of both properly designed assessments and blood panels and, citing my own Omega-3 level […]

“Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.” – Albert Einstein A few weeks ago (as documented in this post) I pricked a finger, dabbed some blood on a blotter card and, feeling rather smug that I’d “upper percentile” the hell out of the results, sent the sample off to […]

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.” – Oscar Wilde  So I’ve been super busy over the last couple of weeks; barely able to sneak in a few workouts here and there.  Now I hate to beat a dead horse, but here, again, is another reason/example for the “common guy” to leave the […]

“Several excuses are always less convincing than one.” – Aldous Huxley Let’s Talk Nutrition! And let me begin by saying that this is not intended to be an exhaustive treatise, but rather a 30,000 ft overview of how I approach the question of diet, nutrition and supplementation.  And what is my approach, in a nutshell? […]

Starting today, we are taking on a new 30-day challenge… But before I explain, let me just say how excited I am for the weekend! Happy Hour with friends, a mud run, paddleboarding (Dan is training for his 3rd race) and my in-laws are coming to town from Phili! Before the fun can begin, I […]

“People who lean on logic and philosophy and rational exposition end by starving the best part of the mind.” – William Butler Yeats Is this “Paleo”?  Is that “Paleo”?  You for sure ain’t Paleo (not with choices like that).  Neanderthals weren’t even Paleo, brah, so how can you, Mr 70+ hour/week, live-in-a-city lawyer-dude, even think […]

Yesterday started something new for me… Perfecting my nutrition.  I know what you’re thinking: “Don’t you eat crazy healthy already?” Well, yes and no.  After dealing with my bladder and kidney infections I started to analyze my own health. I place everyone else’s in front and these infections were enough to deliver a “ah-ha moment”. […]

Two weeks ago, I posted this up on Instagram (Are you following me?): Immediately, I had people asking questions not only about juice cleanses in general, but wondering why the heck would I want to do a 3-day juice cleanse? -I don’t need to lose weight -I eat mostly clean  -I’m a healthy person Why then, […]

Happy Monday! It was really nice to sit by my parents’ pool and unwind for a bit yesterday. Plus, the cake I made was a hit. I have to say, I think it’s the best vegan dessert I’ve made yet! Now it’s back to the grind! Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to talk […]

“I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.” – Ralph Nader By now I’m quite sure you’ve run across, in some form or fashion, Marlene Zuk’s work, Paleofantasy.  Now, I can’t claim to have actually read the book, but I have read a few interviews […]

TGIF! Or because of the headline you might be thinking more along the lines of WTF? First things first! What a week, I felt it kind of dragged by but that could be because I have so much fun stuff going on this weekend. Tonight we might head to an oyster roast, but we’ll be […]

“Obey the principles without being bound by them.” ~ Bruce Lee Michelle and I are currently shepparding a gentleman through the Physical Culture Immersion Experience; a gentleman who, over the past week, has experienced some of the most severe sugar withdrawals that I have ever witnessed.  Utterly brutal.  Insomnia, racing heart, the sweats, the non-stop cravings.  And, of course, the […]

 “Whoever is out of patience is out of possession of his soul.” – Francis Bacon I so wish I could remember the above quote when I come across mainstream dietary advice like this.  But alas… BTW, the entire series, of which the above linked article is but one part, is a pretty good mainstream take […]

Yesterday I decided that I just haven’t challenged myself in the past months (1/2 marathons and PRs are just little accomplishments)… I needed something new. So… I began a 3-day Juice Cleanse (Insert GASP here). Okay, so the 1/2 and the PRs were big deals but this is something completely different. Meet my meals for […]

Happy Monday! For most of you who had a long weekend, this morning may have been rough, but hopefully taking a break away from work to check in on LiftingRevolution makes it a bit more barable? Yesterday, after I finished up Christmas Kick Off 2012, I came home and really just wanted to sit on […]
