The quest for Pre-Hab vs. Rehab

The Knee

The knee is a “victim joint.” That is, the knee is rarely the source of dysfunction, but rather the unfortunate victim (often painfully so) of alterations in hip and/or ankle motion. The knee has a propensity toward a “COMPENSATION PATTERN” described as a “functional valgus.”

How many calories are you REALLY burning at the gym?

“Calories.” One of the most dreaded words for dieters and lots of gym goers… Who knew it could carry so much weight?

Whether you’re trying to get lean, maintain your weight or bulk up, you need to know how many calories you’re consuming and burning. Yet, while it’s easy to count calories in our diet, it’s hard to estimate how many we’re actually burning in the gym.

Carb Controversy

Carbs are a highly controversial topic these days so I thought I would take a moment to define a Good Carb from a Bad Carb and maybe answer a question many ask themselves “should I cut carbs from my diet so I can lose weight?”

Bridging, the Mental Kind

Years ago my dentist and I were discussing the merits of flossing one's teeth daily. I defended my sporadic adherence, “I forget to do it, it’s not convenient, it’s not easy to do, sometimes it hurts my fingers, can I just skip the hard-to-reach teeth?

2018 - Another Diet? Ugh!!!

Another year, another resolution, of which the most common are “I’m going lose weight”, “I’m going to go on a diet”, “I’m going to be more active” and “I’m going to be more healthy”. All good resolutions in general. However, not specific enough to ensure long term success and most likely a key to why many resolutions do not last to the end of January!

Coffee Instead of Pre-Workout Supplement: The Good and The Bad

I wanted to write about this subject because I am a definitely a coffee lover and someone who uses coffee as a pre-workout, rather than scooping some colorful powder into my water. We know coffee alone has its advantages and disadvantages, but what about when we look at its affect on exercise?

Hormones and Fat Distribution in Women

For women struggling with their weight, recent scientific findings point to a possible culprit. 

Studies in mice indicate that a single hormone whose levels rise at menopause could be responsible for redistribution of fat to the abdomen. At the same time, this hormone may contribute to bone loss.

Not all eggs are created equal

There are a lot of buzzwords out there surrounding eggs and the hens they come from. Omega, organic, cage-free, free-range, pasture-raised, farm fresh, or just simply Grade A/AA eggs, are some of the many words used to describe a carton of eggs, but what is the real difference between them all?  It’s more complicated than you might think!
