While there is not a current Revolution running I will continue to update this blog (or just plain ol' update it, it's been a while!) with thoughts and news on what's running trough my head in the world of health and fitness. If you have any comments or questions please... Continue reading

What was it for you? Was it looking in the mirror and wondering what the heck happened? Was it running after your little one and wondering why you were breathing so hard? Was it putting on some clothing that you hadn't worn in a while and realizing it wasn't going... Continue reading

Rita, I love the idea of setting an alarm to remind us to go to sleep! It is so easy to get caught up doing what we do without realizing how late it is. Like right now! I'm shutting it down and getting some sleep!

It led my top 3 reasons why folks have a tough time losing fat and while you can debate its order of importance you can not debate its importance. While the reviews for this book are all over the place I do consider it a fantastic resource for gaining further... Continue reading

Based on the most popular questions I receive here are my observations on the top three reasons why some folks have a tough time losing fat. Lack of sleep which helps raise (directly or indirectly) the hormones that make it tougher to use stored fat for energy and the depression... Continue reading

Protein powders that is! I continue to receive some great questions everyday from Revolution participants. Keep 'em coming and allow us to help you as much as we can during your eight weeks. A common question this week has been about the use of protein powders and shakes for pre-... Continue reading

From the mailbag, a great question from a Revolutionary: Greg, when I've mentioned to friends that I am doing the Paleo diet, they have replied "oh, you're doing Atkins." Can you give me a few of the differences between the two diets? Thanks - Glenda My answer: Glenda, It's a... Continue reading

Erin, You are right on. Working on it!
“Try it for 30 days. If you are not happy with the way you look, feel, and perform then go back to the way you were eating before.” I have heard this repeated many times by Robb Wolf on his excellent podcast The Paleo Solution. Robb is the author of... Continue reading

"What do I do now?" My favorite end of Revolution question! Actually it is my least favorite end of Revolution question. The short answer? Keep going. The long answer? Well it's a long answer. What do you do with the information that can save your life? That may be a... Continue reading

Overwhelmed. A few of you have written to me about feeling this way after Nutrition 101. I hear ya', I throw a lot of stuff at you in a very short period of time and because it runs so contrary to what most have heard in the past some of... Continue reading

There will be some disagreement with this one in the world of exercise "experts" but these movements should be a part of your exercise program: Deadlift Squat Overhead Press Pull-ups Those are what I would consider my desert island list; as in, "if you were stranded on a desert island...

For those who have a bit of time to read and think a bit, take a look at this article. It starts pretty slow but picks up after a couple pages. You need to download the article to read it. While Paleo is quite the fad these days it is... Continue reading

Rita, I like your thought better! There is so much tied up into this and it gets a bit maddening. Positivity is so important in this whole process. Eating "well" is not a matter of depriving ourselves but in fact a matter of doing good things for ourselves!

One aspect of this Revolution process I believe so important is to take an active role in learning more. More about what you don't know too much about yet has such a big impact on how you look, feel and perform. If you want to be successful find someone who... Continue reading

When you really get down to it isn't it a bit sad that so many of us are controlled by the food we eat? That so many would rather forgo incredible improvements in their health, performance, and appearance because they can't stop eating sugar? Maybe sad is not the right... Continue reading

Bob, I must admit I feel a little smug when I ride on bad weather days. Makes me feel tougher than I really am but my absolute favorite is the looks you get from folks driving by. They get a look on their face that says they can not fathom why anyone would be out on a bike on such a day. I love it.
"What are we doing right, what are doing wrong, and how can we get better?" It's not hard for me to pick out the most important lessons I have learned in my time as a competitive athlete. If your goal is to compete and not just to complete than you... Continue reading

You're welcome!
Danny, Thank you very much. I appreciate the thoughts and could not agree more. You can never be too strong!
"Velvet pillows, safari parks, sunglasses: people have become woolly mice. They still have bodies that can walk for five days and four nights through a desert of snow, without food, but they accept praise for having taken a one-hour bicycle ride. 'Good for you.' Instead of expressing their gratitude for... Continue reading
