Dave Chapelle’s an Idiot

Not really. Not at all, actually.  I love Dave. Huge fan of everything he does. I watched his new Netflix specials recently and laughed my ass off. But I really cringed at one point. Not because he said something politically incorrect or insensitive. That’s comedy… something that, sadly, needs explaining to a lot of people these days.   No, what got me was when Dave said that salt is what’s killing more people than anything else. Ugh… Here we go again. continue reading.

My Simple, “Lifestyle” Approach to Nutrition

The last thing I could ever imagine doing is carrying around Tupperware containers and weighing my food all day. I need freedom and simplicity in everything I do. Otherwise my life sucks. So my approach to nutrition reflects that. When I wake up in the morning I’m not that hungry. I just need to get shit done. That’s my most productive time of the day and I need to attack my MIT (Most Important Task) with a vengeance. That means I’m drinking water and coffee and skipping food for the first couple hours. Some people freak out and… continue reading.

The Results of my 30 Day Gut Healing Experiment

I’d been dealing with gut and digestion issues for too long and finally had to put a stop to it. If it wasn’t the gas and bloating it was the weakened immune system or the inability to eat many of my favorite foods. I literally could not eat more than a small sweet potato without my stomach blowing up like a balloon. The same thing would happen with a lot of my favorite fruits. Most nights I had to sit upright on the couch until 3am because I was too bloated and uncomfortable to lie down. continue reading.

5 Reasons You Should Eat Some Carbs On Rest Days

Guest Post by Nate Miyaki, Author of Feast Your Fat Away About a year ago, I was hanging out with a colleague and friend of mine.  We were downtown around lunchtime. In between intermittent deep thoughts about important nutrition topics, we were trying to look down the shirts and up the skirts of some fine looking women in their business attire. Now here’s what I don’t get. I had just returned from Hawaii, a place where women walking around in bikinis is the norm.  I wasn’t going to see anything different hiding under those work clothes… continue reading.

Is Raw Milk Dangerous? (The Raw Truth)

Guest Post by the creator of the Truth About Fat Burning Foods, Nick “The Nutrition Nerd” Pineault Hey, get ready because the Nutrition Nerd is back with the raw truth for you. Just poured myself a large glass of fatty raw milk, and I’m so eager to destroy this one particular nutrition myth that I feel like I could rip my shirt and grow a yellow mustache while I’m at it. That’s how enthusiastic this stuff gets me. Before we address all the B.S. you hear in the media about raw milk’s safety, let’s ask the… continue reading.

Meal Frequency and Metabolism

Guest Post By Sol Orwell of For those that haven’t seen, you’re missing out. They’ve built up a solid reputation on presenting evidence-based information on nutrition and supplementation. I get a ton of questions about nutrition, so I asked if they would do a series of posts on nutrition. Maybe even tackle some myths. Here’s the first one – on meal frequency. Meal Frequency? A common claim is that eating more meals a day causes an increase in metabolism? Another claim is that because your metabolism keeps spiking, you burn more fat, which helps with fat loss. What’s… continue reading.

My Thoughts on The Paleo Diet

A lot of times people who are unfamiliar with my thoughts on nutrition ask me my opinion of the Paleo Diet. For some reason it’s somewhat controversial in certain circles. I have no idea why. The Paleo Diet is a great nutritional concept that just about anyone could benefit from embracing. Eat real, whole foods, avoid anything processed and avoid grains, sugar, dairy and legumes. I have zero problem with it. Some people get all upset about the no grains recommendation but you’ve gotta give it an honest try first. In most cases people feel better without grains. They suffer… continue reading.

Your Healthy Food Sucks

Guest Post by the creator of The Truth About Fat Burning Foods, Nick “The Nutrition Nerd” Pineault Your healthy food sucks. Wait a minute…. What the hell is this nerd talking about? Let me explain. What I mean is… your healthy food probably sucks. You know the grass-fed beef, free-range eggs, alternative sweeteners, olive oils, etc. that you’re paying a boatload of money for? They’re not what you think. After spending hundreds of caffeinated hours in front of my computer being the real self-educated nutrition nerd I am, I realized that most people get scammed when shopping for… continue reading.

The Biggest Nutrition Mistake You Could Make

Tom couldn’t figure it out. Why was it that every time he’d bust his ass to gain ten pounds over the course of 3-4 months he’d always end up hating the way he looked? He was bigger but fatter. Out of the ten pounds six or seven was always pure, gelatinous, adipose tissue, also known as body-fat. No matter what he did the results were always the same. If he ate higher carbs and lower fat or lower carbs and higher fat the same thing would happen when he went on a rapid bulk plan…. He just got fat. Then… continue reading.

Mass Building Diet Tips for Teens & Twenty Somethings

There’s never a time in your life when you’ll build more muscle faster than somewhere between the ages of about 16 and 22 (or up to 25 for some people). Your anabolic hormones are cranking, your recovery ability is through the roof and your digestive system is performing at peak capacity. Even if you don’t eat above maintenance or do any strength training at all you’re still going to build muscle and gain a significant amount of weight. Everything is growing throughout your teenage years. If you do the right things, training and nutrition wise, you can dramatically enhance that… continue reading.

The Coconut Oil Miracle

An RSC Exclusive Report – Sign up HERE to become a member today. The Coconut Oil Miracle – By Bruce Fife I started using coconut oil myself and began recommending it to my clients (I am a certified nutritionist and naturopathic physician). I’ve seen it get rid of chronic psoriasis, eliminate dandruff, remove pre-cancerous skin lesions, speed recovery from the flu, stop bladder infections, overcome chronic fatigue, and relieve hemorrhoids, among other things. In addition to this, the scientific literature reports its possible use in treating dental caries (cavities), peptic ulcers, benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate), epilepsy, genital herpes,… continue reading.

Shooting Down The Nightime Carb Myth

What’s up Renegades? Jay here doing the intro to this guest post by my brother, Nate Miyaki. Nate always drops pure unadulterated dopeness, but this may be his greatest post ever. Enter Nate… *Warning – It is highly recommended that you listen to “Regulators” by Warren G and Nate Dogg before reading this article. 1. Because its a bad ass song. 2. So you understand all of the references. Nate Dogg, where you been? I’ve been chasing skirts out in the 4-1-5. Fool, you know how we do it. Actually, I’ve just been busy as sh*t Hustlemania-style. But… continue reading.

How Excess Stimulant Use Can Lead to Overtraining

There’s a helluva a lotta cats out there addicted to pre-workout stimulants. Gotta be cranked for your workout; bouncing off the walls or ready to run through ‘em. So you slug down a triple espresso and stack with it with some 3 Hour Energy Blaster, NO Explode-aria and whatever else they sell at the checkout counter of GNC. Anything short of an 8-ball of coke is fair game. After twenty minutes or so it starts kicking in and you feel superhuman. You’re no longer a guy who barely slept because you were stressed out all night or the guy who… continue reading.

How Many Carbs Should You Eat Per Day to Build Muscle?

One of the most frequently asked nutrition questions I get is, “How many carbs should you eat per day to build muscle?” Everyone always focuses on protein but if you want to get jacked carbs are crucial. High fat and Paleo style eating can be great for getting lean but not for getting big. That job requires some rice and potatoes. Carb intake should be directly correlated to weekly training volume. For example, let’s say Billy does an old school 5×5 routine twice per week because he believes that as a hardgainer that’s all the training he can handle. There… continue reading.
