  1. What Do You Want to do Before You die?

    • In short… whatever it takes to make me happy!

  2. If you had to be any condiment (of the liquid variety) which would you be?

    • Hands down it would have to be, MUSTARD! Old Style Mustard to be precise. Goes well with so many things… low in calories, almost no fat, and no carbs. Sodium can be a little high depending on brand, but no other condiment does it quite like mustard. Thx for asking… fun question!

  4. How to get rid of the flabby tummy. Any pointers?

    • Contrary to popular belief, I won’t suggest you do hundreds of sit-ups a day. Any desired toning is a result of increased muscle mass and/or fat reduction. The absolute best way to achieve both is weight/resistance training and proper diet.

      I personally find the fastest results are from healthy eating habits, and long-term result from weight lifting. As an alternative look into core-based exercise programs such as Pilates and you will no doubt get tummy tightening results.

      Just remember more muscle equals increased ability to burn fat. The primary reason we get flabby is due to fat accumulation. You can work your core muscle out all you want but until you liberate the overlying fat, you can’t achieve a toned physique. Neither can you spot reduce fat, you need to lose overall body fat and eventually your trouble areas with disappear.

      I always recommend full body movements that engage multiple muscles simultaneously and challenge the heart at the same time. Think of it, your legs (quads, hamstrings and glutes) are the biggest muscles in your body, working them burns the most calories and in turn fat. Squats and deadlifts are great for doing that, they really challenge the legs, core and back (deadlifts also hit your arms and shoulders).

      As far as eating goes, follow your own taste buds but be most concerned about not spiking your insulin. High insulin triggers fat storage in your fat cells, so try your best to eat healthy low-glycemic foods. The flowing blog posts will better acquaint you with this eating philosophy.

      The perfect balance!

  5. As you know, I love your blog. Can I please post it to my “other sites to check out” page?

    • Yes yes yes! By all means do so, and that goes for any of my content. Very much appreciated. THX

  6. What is the most effective way to control night-time cravings and the munchies? I always struggle with this even though I can be perfect the whole day long.

    • I agree this is the hardest part of the day… at times my stomach starts to growl, which also makes it difficult to fall asleep. As of late, I have been enjoying hot water with lemon. The water fills your stomach, and the taste of the lemon is soothing.

      This is a very crucial time; you should avoid eating if possible. If you absolutely must eat, have something that is as low-glycemic as possible, something that digests slowly and does not spike your insulin. Sugars or high-glycemic foods wreak havoc on your insulin levels and prevent important fat burning hormone cycles as you sleep. Not eating at least 2 hours before bed is huge in the battle against fat, accomplishing this helps you wakeup nice and lean.

      I eat five small meals a day and the last meal is 2 ½ to 3 hours before bed and this usually prevents any late night munchies.

      Hope this helps…
