The mistake I’m about to divulge is one that can be made anytime. It just happens to be particularly common during the holiday season, which seems to last longer and longer every year, making it all the more detrimental to your health and fitness goals.

An Important Preface

Before I share the worst mistake, there’s another one that has to be mentioned so you aren’t confused about my intentions:

Don’t go into the holidays with a plan to follow a stri...

I’m gonna keep this real short today. What kind of supplements do we recommend you take?

None.

The End

OK, Fine, I’ll Elaborate

I don’t want to leave you thinking supplements are bad.

They’re not.

They can be harmful if you use them when you don’t need them, though. So if you’re going to take any, you’d better be pretty sure it’s necessary.

Like, if a doctor says you have a nutrient deficiency, and it’s one that can’t be quickly fixed with an easy chang...

In case you think exercise is only for people who love it and want to get ripped, here’s a personal reminder of how getting in shape, no matter who you are, is about so much more.

Don’t Tell My Son

I’ve made it a goal to always say yes when my son says, “Let’s run!” And he says it a lot.

The only stipulations are:

1. Not in a dangerous/inappropriate environment.

2. He can’t know about my goal (or he’d take advantage).

I like that it takes me out of my...

If you’ve ever wished there were a pill you could take to blast away fat and help you achieve your dream body without diet and exercise…

This is for you.

This isn’t clickbait — no such pill exists — I want you to know that up front.

The message I’m about to give you will help you understand why a magic pill would never work, and what to do instead.

The Art of Misdirection

My son loves magic. He’s finally old enough to understand that they’re just tric...

Perfection is overrated.

Don’t give up on your diet or exercise plan just because you messed up. You can still get extraordinary results even with unexceptional willpower.

How Much is Enough?

I like to make a joke about how I’m going to “give my workout my all — my full 70% effort.”

Turns out it might not have to be a joke after all.

Precision Nutrition (an industry leader, and the company Megan is certified through as a nutrition coach) recently anal...

If you’ve ever wondered what kind of advice you’d get from a nutrition coach, I have 4 lessons to share with you that I’ve learned from being married to one.

Where I’m Coming From

My diet has always been a weakness.

Facebook recently reminded me of something I posted about a decade ago that will give you a clearer understanding:

“Realized tonight my instant gratification need toward food. Had to toss an Oreo in my mouth while waiting the 1 minute for...

When your current diet isn’t working, it’s natural to want to switch it out for something new.

It’s a common mistake.

If you want to reach your goals, there’s a better way.

No Matter the Diet

First, I need to address a possible misconception: you might think you’re not even on a diet.

That’s probably how I would have felt, years ago, when the only rules to my diet were something like:

  1. Eat whenever you’re too hungry not to.

  2. Eat whatever is taki...

You don’t need a gym membership to get in shape.

You don’t even NEED gym equipment, but getting a few key pieces of gear can help you reach more goals.

I’ll show you why a home gym is something you should consider, and I’ll guide you on where to start.

(I have no affiliation with any specific company or product. So no need to worry about a particular bias.)

The Benefits

There are three major benefits of having a home gym.

1. It’s One Less Step

Even if y...

You might know that lack of sleep makes losing weight more difficult.

What you don’t know is that even if you get plenty of shut-eye, sleep can still play a major role in why you have trouble getting rid of extra fat.

This Is Personal

I’ve had sleep issues for as long as I can remember.

There have been times in my life where I lie in bed for hours getting little to no sleep, and other seasons where I could sleep 10 hours and still be exhausted the ne...

There are countless options for getting started with diet and exercise.

Should you try calorie cycling, bodybuilding, intermittent fasting, or maybe train for a marathon?

I’ll give you a specific answer, but let me start by saying, “None of the above.”

The Overcomplexificating of Modern Healthitization

I don’t like to be negative and go off on rants, so please forgive this brief lapse of composure:

Diet and exercise should not be as freaking complicat...
