Intermittent Fasting: Part 2, The Fight’s Over

I like the idea of Intermittent Fasting, I’m just not keen on the results. It is easy to not eat all day then blast through a few thousand calories before hitting the sack (or burning the midnight oil in my case). I can say it definitely causes weight loss (at least this particular protocol)—the … [Read more...]

Intermittent Fasting: Part 1

“How To Starve Your Way To Health” adorns the cover of this month’s Harper’s magazine and I took it as a call to act. I haven’t said much about fasting—intermittent or otherwise—because I know there’s a lot right about it. By right, I mean healthy. But I know there’s something very wrong too. Until … [Read more...]

Resolution For Failure

Since it’s the New Year and many already see several weeks of effort thrown toward achieving their resolution, I thought I’d put together a stupid-simple, bulletproof set of rules to fail this year, just like so many millions did last year…and the year before that…and before that… … [Read more...]

Surgeon General’s Warning: Is Known To Cause Radioactive Superpowers

I’m Back

Explanations… Once again, I’ve taken a hiatus from, all but ignoring the site and audience responsible for getting me into, Muscle & Fitness, Men’s Fitness, Flex, Power Magazine and as of today, T-Nation. So yeah, I kind of feel like a douche. … [Read more...]

Caffeine Therapy

Caffeine is a model of drug abuse34, and I love it. I don’t know where I’d be without caffeine. Actually I do know where I’d be right now—in bed asleep for the last four hours—but thanks to a strong cup of joe and sugar-free energy drinks, I’ll burn several more hours writing and researching before … [Read more...]

The Secret of Leucine

During my college years, I had the chance to attend the Arnold Classic Expo, with the mass of vendors peddling equipment, supplements, pre-made meals and magazine subscriptions. Would-be Olympia competitors wandered the floor and even a glimpse was near impossible through the thickset of bodies … [Read more...]
