In reality, fasting is a science-backed diet method that is extremely effective in helping you lose weight. The International Society of Sports Nutrition conducted a massive 2017 study that showed intermittent fasting is just as effective as caloric restriction (i.e. monitoring your calories each day) when it comes to losing weight and improving your body composition. The study actually proved intermittent fasting can be […]

It’s true: abs really are made in the kitchen. Exercise all you want, but if you’re not fueling your body with proper nutrition, chances are you’ll have a difficult time finally slimming your stomach. I meet with hundreds of people per week and they all have one thing in common: they desire overall wellness and health.

Why Diets Fail

By: | Tags: , , , , , ,

I read a statistic recently that took me by surprise: 95% of diets fail and dieters will regain their lost weight in 1-5 years.
