  • The Truth About Eating More Protein - When giving nutrition advice and recommendations, I am often asked “Isn’t too much protein dangerous?” Sadly, this myth continues to perpetuate and is one of the main reasons why most people fail to achieve not only their fat-loss goals, but also their general health and wellness goals. We’ve all heard the myths that too much protein will destroy your kidneys. Continue Reading
  • An Avocado A Day Keeps The Doctor Away! - Need an excuse to eat more avocados? An analysis of the data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2001-2008 data, involving over 17,000 adults in the USA, revealed that people who consumed avocados regularly more closely adhered to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans than those who did not eat avocados, as measured by the Healthy Eating Index. An Continue Reading
  • Is Your Blood Toxic? - You may not know it, but right now your blood might be heavily “polluted.” Every day, your body is exposed to chemicals, pesticides, industrial solvents, and heavy metals that seep into your bloodstream. Laundry detergents, soaps, cleaners, and more contain xenoestrogens (chemicals that mimic estrogen in the body), that make their way into your bloodstream. The foods you eat can Continue Reading
  • Laurie’s Rant: Are Supplements Really That Bad? - One of the most frequent questions I am asked (which usually leads to a heated discussion) is: “Aren’t supplements bad for you and a waste of money?” I’ll tell you what is bad for you and a waste of money; alcohol, sugar, trans fats, soft drinks, processed and flour-based carbohydrates and cigarettes! It frustrates me that people can honestly think Continue Reading
  • Does Too Much Protein Really Get Turned Into Fat? - Aside from building muscle, protein provides essential amino acids that serve as the building blocks for other proteins, enzymes, and hormones within the body that are vital for normal functioning.Without this steady supply of amino acids, the body resorts to breaking down its own proteins; typically from muscle in order to meet this demand. Over half of all the amino Continue Reading
  • Six Vegetarian Myths Busted - Vegetarians should be applauded for their efforts to follow a lifestyle that does not involve eating any animal products, especially the vegetarians that do it out of concern and protest to the often cruel ways in which humans treat animals. Unfortunately many vegetarians make the mistake of thinking that their chosen way of life is healthier than their meat eating Continue Reading
  • Laurie’s Rant: Temporary Pleasure or Long Term Reliability -   Let’s imagine that you wanted to buy a new car and you had $50,000 to spend. For this amount of money you could get a very reliable family car that wasn’t too flashy but got you from A to B each and every time. Or, you could buy yourself a Ferrari . . . with no engine in it! Continue Reading
  • Vitamin D: The Next Big Vitamin - Vitamin D has been making waves in the athletic community since at least 1927 due to improvements in muscle strength and endurance, but it's also be-coming a hot topic in another field: life extension. Add to this some evidence that it could help with fat loss and strength gains and you just might have… THE next big vitamin. Low Vitamin Continue Reading
  • Fructose: The New Public Enemy - The intake of added sugars, such as table sugar (aka sucrose which is made up of glucose and fructose) and high fructose corn syrup, has increased dramatically over the last 100 years. This form of sweetener is cheap, easy to produce and readily available. Hence, many food companies use Fructose as their primary source of sweetener in most of the Continue Reading
